    We had a reservation set for 9:30am once we got there we were told they had a special event going on and our reservations were no longer good. Not sure why they wouldn’t tell us that before driving downtown. Then they offered us to go to the brown palace breakfast lounge that served coffee juice eggs and bacon for $30 per person! What a joke.

    The menu seems to be substantially reduced, which was a disappointment. The two meals we out to our table in a very short time, but cold to touch. That does not meet my expectation for that type of establishment or price point. Reservations were very easy to make a few weeks out. The staff was just wonderful and very professional. Coffee was fantastic and cocktails were well made.

    We were greeted with we’re taking on first come basis, we made reservation weeks ago and we’re on time, very disappointed. We come here every years on vacation, however quality has dropped in a big way. When we questioned, it was blamed on COVID even though my husband and I were the only ones wearing a mask. This was part of a big anniversary celebration, did not at all meet our expectations. Dress code they publish and our past experience not present. Wouldn’t return for this mediocre experience . It seems businesses are willing too embrace COVID as an excuse for poor quality or lack of services.

    Service was excellent, food mediocre and ambiance less than desirable. This first time visit to Ellyngtons for a birthday breakfast was a disappointment. While the servers did their best, and were very attentive and friendly, the food was subpar. The Prime Rib Hash was fair and in need of added spice the waiter recommended. The Crab Oscar Omelette was bland with no visible chunks of crab. The live piano music was enjoyable, along with the old-fashioned decor. However, the restrooms were tired, in need of updating and better cleaning. Adding to the feeling of neglect, directly across the street, homeless men were openly doing drugs at noon on a Sunday. Whether a lack of adequate mental health services or lack of concern of the Governor and Mayor, the people and businesses of downtown Denver are suffering. Note: While Ellyngtons was almost empty, the Afternoon Tea in a fully enclosed lobby (with no windows to the neighborhood) was jam-packed.

    The table was wobbly, coffee spilled anytime someone touched it. Food was bland, Had the corned beed hash, but it was less of a hash and more of shredded last night pot roast. Over easy eggs still had uncooked whites. Server was good, his assistant, not so much. She reached across my plate twice to get someone else’s dirty dishes. The servers and or host spoke loudly at each other across the room and while walking away from each orher, discussing seating arrangements and who’s job this or that was. Not really something I was interested in. Other than my family as table mates, it was a disappointment, but in line with the rest of the experience at the Brown Palace.

    I reserved on a Sunday morning. My mum was visiting from Chicago and we were visiting the sites to see that weekend. A little bit busy. Not enough menus to go around and seemed short staffed. They definitely got their steps in. Our waitress was great. Loved the gentleman playing the piano. I wish I asked to sit closer. And Jerome the host made it memorable for me, he was just so nice and funny. Dress code was mixed. Broncos played that day so lots of jerseys mixed with more elegant styles as you look around the parlor. Food was delicious but, not sure what the but is. Overall great time. Next time I will absolutely book the tea in the center of the hotel.

    We were welcomed promptly when we arrived. Coffee and juice were offered within a minute of being seated. Our server Keith took good care us even though he had lots of other tables that were seated within a few minutes. We ordered corned beef hash, muffins were toasted twice— and the corned beef was lean and teased in strips. The ambiance in the room and lighting were great.

    We had two breakfasts with Ellyngton's on our recent stay at the Brown Place. Both were fabulous. But what was most outstanding was the service - both days, the service was impeccable, from the minute we were greeted at the door. Definitely worth a visit.

    We had an amazing brunch before heading home from our anniversary weekend. My husband had the eggs Benedict, I had the prime rib hash, and we shared a side of bacon and French toast. Everything was cooked to perfection and delicious, including great tasting coffee. The service was prompt, professional, and 5 star. There was even live music that was pleasant but not too loud, which allowed us to carry on a conversation. Highly recommend!

    Lovely restaurant for breakfast - reservations are definitely recommended I did notice though, if you are not staying in the hotel and just there to meet a friend later, but are having breakfast while you wait, the wait staff seemed to treat me differently than other patrons and seemed less-friendly. I found it odd. Additionally, there was a waitress on the floor that dropped at least two curse bombs in front of her customers that I heard which I thought was a bit unprofessional for a classier joint.

    Very disappointing. Went out of our way to eat breakfast here since we so enjoyed it many times over past years. Coffee arrived cold. Second cup only warm. First cup not consumed, not removed by server. Ordered eggs benedict (2). English muffin was tough, barely toasted. Canadian bacon was one paper thin slice. Hollandaise sauce was a little bitter. Egg was ok. Hash browns with one order - they were not fresh, tasted and looked like they had been prepared day or two before and barely warmed up. Other order was fruit cup with berries, but they brought out the grapes and melon instead. So…….an anticipated great and leisurely breakfast was simply not at all enjoyable. I guess that explains why there very few other patrons in a restaurant that used to be crowded for Sunday breakfast. What happened to this once-great place? Marriott?

    We decided to try breakfast at Ellyngton‘s because we stayed at the Brown Palace and wanted something easy for breakfast. I was very pleasantly surprised because we were treated like first class the whole time. The wait staff was very attentive and brought out our food very quickly and it was very tasty. All in all it was an excellent breakfast!
