The "world famous champagne brunch" (as described by the waiter) did not disappoint. The Brown Palace Hotel was stunningly decorated. The service was excellent and the food well prepared. The live band was fun to watch and the overall atmosphere was fun and festive. My single complaint was that the room was a bit too warm for comfort but to be fair, the outside temperature was unseasonably warm as well.

My family isn t able to all be together too often, so when all our schedules worked out to be at the Brown Palace at the same time, I made the reservation! The staff there were so attentive and welcoming! We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the beautiful array of foods! We were sitting close to the music and it was hard to talk around that, but yet the music was such a fun part of our morning, so I can t say anything negative about it. All in all our time at Ellyngton s was superb!

I was looking for a high class restaurant for my sisters birthday. The Brown’s afternoon tea was booked out three weeks but Ellyngton’s was able to give me a reservation. The atmosphere was nice but the service and quality of food was horribly lacking. Paid $16 for a plate of French toast that even Denny’s would frown upon. Three stars is generous.

I have been to several brunches in my lifetime, this brunch is up there in the top two! My favorite brunch is Queen Mary in Long Beach, Ca; however, Ellyngton's is right up there. We had a reservation right at 10 a.m. After you check in, you wait in the lobby for your name to be called as you are seated by your arrival time. We did not have to wait long for our name to be called but a glass of champagne would have been a great addition while waiting. Our server was outstanding! I don't think our glass of champagne was never less than 1/2 full. He was very attentive with service above and beyond expectations! There is such a variety of food for all appetites. We had the Eggs Benedict which is so delicious, this is made to order. We ordered from our server when we sat down. We had all the seafood, sushi, cheeses, breads, prime rib, duck, etc., and of course, deserts that were all delicious! There was a few items we didn't try, but I have to say we left very satisfied and full of delicious food. Yes, the price of brunch is a pricey but it is so worth it, in my opinion. Even, if you only go one time, the experience is worth it! The valet parking is free, just the tip. Just make sure you get your parking receipt signed by your server. I will say, I will be back! Don't listen to all the negative Nellie reviewers - Go enjoy the brunch, you will not regret it; at least I don't.

Had the wonderful Ship Tavern prime rib sandwich at the more elegant Ellyngton’s. Ed, our waiter gave great service and should be requested - he’s the best.

Everything we had tasted very good. There is clear attention to detail when they buy and pick out their ingredients and recipes. I'm picky about coffee too and their coffee is excellent.

We brought a guest from out of town who was duly impressed by the surroundings, the array of brunch choices and the quality of the food. We could not agree more. Elyngton's at the Brown Palace is always a first rate reliable restaurant for quality of food, attentiveness of service and general atmosphere. One very slight negative was that the music, which was excellent, was a bit too loud for quiet conversation. Otherwise we give it our highest recommendation.

Ellyngton's is classical Denver elegance, ideal for a business meal, with superior food, attentive and efficient service, and a quiet setting for conversation or contemplation during the meal.

Seems this restaurant has seen better days. First impression for recent brunch was a dirty glass and a dirty knife on the table. Also one of the chairs had a loose arm. Service was okay, but not up to par with the likes of the Four Seasons or really any upscale restaurant. Food was okay, but not anything to write home about. Probably won’t go back because for $60+ a person, I want to be excited to go - which I wouldn’t be. This restaurant was pretty underwhelming.

We ate at the Sunday Brunch at Ellyngton's. Our food was awesome. There is a great selection of cold and hot items. The made to order omelets are perfect and the prime rib tasted great. Our waiter was Dustin and he did a great job of always making sure our cups were full and dirty plates removed. He even brought us a hot syrup with our waffles. We were celebrating a birthday and he made sure we had a wonderful time. Thank you.

It is always a pleasure to dine in Ellyngton’s. One is greeted b the staff the moment you arrive. Service is the best and food far above other downtown restaurants.
I would never think of a business meal anywhere else than Ellynton’s (or any meal for that matter).

Not as good as the Sunday brunch at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, but pretty good. Less expensive than the Broadmoor by a few bucks. My wife and I still enjoyed the brunch very much, just can't give it a full 5-stars.

My 83-year old mother was looking for a nice brunch to celebrate her birthday. I found the Brown Palace Champagne brunch online and made reservations. I am so glad I did! It was absolutely wonderful! The food was amazing and there were so many delicious options. Very classy and elegant and the service was top-tier! If you are looking for a special place to celebrate, or just enjoy a fantastic meal and ambiance, I would highly recommend the champagne brunch at the beautiful Brown Palace!

The service and staff were attentive and pleasant. The ham and hash browns for breakfast were over-cooked - disappointing. Other than that, we like to visit the Brown Palace periodically for meals.
