Ordered the tomato soup, brussel sprouts and the lamb lollipops. Brussel sprouts were terrific! Atmosphere was nice.
Lovely restaurant and the friendly staff even sang Happy Birthday to us in English and French! What a treat. Made us feel super special. Excellent food, and chocolate mousse dessert. Will definitely come back
Nothing fantastic but solid service, nice ambience and good food at a reasonable price for a major downtown hotel. Wouldn’t go out of my way to eat here, but would be glad to return. Nicely located right across from the Convention Center.
Made a reservation weeks prior, but still had to line up for 10 minutes with people who did not reserve?
Service staff seemed very stretched, no water , no waiter to take order.
Kitchen was painstakingly slow.
Ended up putting ourselves and our client behind schedule for 9:00 am meetings.
Quite embarrassed and disappointed as you might expect .
The prime rib special ($25) on Fridays and Saturdays was great - a nice value and a great meal.
The chicken picatta was as hard as a brick and just as tough. The desserts were still half frozen. Our waiter was inattentive.
We went before a matinee at the Buell. It's very handy to have a meal at the Altitude restaurant in the Hyatt before going to the DCPA because it's a short walk to the theater. It's nice to get a little walk in before sitting for the show. I expected to have the lunch buffet, but they weren't serving it that day. The website had indicated it would be available. They gave us a free dessert because of the error on the website. We each had a burger that we enjoyed. We ordered two desserts and shared, but that was too much. The peach and pomegranate cobbler had a very sweet topping on it so we didn't finish it. The chocolate dessert was fabulous and in the future we'll just share that.
Food was good but not great for the price. The buffet was the best value
Paid a lot of money, and we feel like it was a waste. Definitely not worth what we paid. The food was "blah", the buffet was ok. No hot vegetables at all, which was surprising. Not much of a selection. My daughter got a pasta dish, that was just ok. She didn't finish it. It was soooo cold in the restaurant, we were literally shaking. We definitely will not be back.
The service was good. Our waiter Sehel (sp?) was very nice friendly and made good conversation. The food was just okay. As we were grabbing plates from the buffet- someone from the staff said they were dirty. They had just opened. There was prime rib, but the guy cut a huge chunk and didn’t know anything. The back bar of hot food was delicious. They had veggies, mashed potatoes, and 3 different types of meats.
The dessert bar was mildly disappointing. The coffee cupcake was more like a chai tasting rock.. the orange brownie- same thing. The mousse cup was amazing along with the cheesecake. I’m not sure what they were thinking with the raspberry chimichanga but you can miss that one.
We went for their Christmas dinner buffet. It was all very delicious! My 7 year old also loved it! Will be back for sure !
My family has celebrated Christmas Day for two years in a row with the dinner buffet at Altitude. It’s relaxing and quality family time during a hectic season of the year.
We went for their Christmas dinner. We are fairly early and had reservations. They were very accommodating. Excellent Christmas dinner with prime rib, turkey and ham at the carving station. It was busy but did not seem crowded or loud. We were able to have a very nice conversation and were not rushed. We will definitely keep Altitude in mind for next Christmas and when we are in Denver next.
It was wonderful to enjoy a Christmas buffet dinner without the hassle of home prep. In addition to the featured turkey (w/ stuffing and gravy), prime rib and ham, there were additional selections of seafood and other entrees. Although the salad offerings were outstanding, I did miss having a selection of cooked vegetables, other than mashed potatoes. The variety of enticing dessert selections was almost overwhelming.
Our family of four went to the Hyatt hotel for Christmas dinner and were extremely disappointed with our meal. We do not have a problem paying $55.00 a person for a special occasion but that being said this meal was anything but special. All of the meat items offered were cold-each of us tried something different with the same result. There were absolutely no hot vegetables offered to go with the meals. There were cold salads and meats for the main offerings. Given the price of this buffett we all felt like the menu was very limited. A few hours after the meal two of the four of us became ill with stomach issues which did not go away for two days. We would not recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a nice warm dinner. Very disappointed with the entire experience.
This was the third year we went to the brunch on Christmas day. Everything met our expectations except our server. He took a very long time to serve our drink orders and then did not come back to offer refills, accept additional orders or even refill our water for the rest of our meal. He was inattentive and indifferent towards us and we did not feel welcomed or appreciated by this server.
Christmas Brunch with family and friends
It has been a Family tradition for the last 5 years for us to eat Christmas Dinner at the Altitude Restaurant. The food is great and the service matches.
The Friday/Saturday night prime rib special is fantastic! It's tasty, has a great price and the service was excellent. It was an excellent meal and we were glad we ate there. The 3 course meal is $25 per person, a steal in downtown Denver.
I ordered the harvest chicken... and it was a rotisserie chicken. Potatoes were salty. Kids chicken fingers were microwaveable. Our ticket was over a 100.00 for this food. Very disappointed. We won’t eat here again.
