Lamentablemente no actualizan su información y el lugar está cerrado. En Denver algunos lugares operan cumpliendo estrictamente protocolos. Ellos ni siquiera actualizan su información! Llegamos al lugar y de manera indiferente nos informaron que estaba cerrado! Lamentable

The service was excellent. Wait staff was caring and truly cared about our experience. The food was fabulous. During these times Ellington's was able to offer an experience as dynamic as ever.

Our service was great. Our server was very polite and super nice. The host at the front was very welcoming and friendly. It is a beautiful restaurant, but the buffet is cancelled due to Covid and the menu is minimal. This is to be expected due to the uncertain times we are in but it was a great experience regardless. I would like to come back when the buffet is open again, the photos looks delicious

First weekend re-opened for brunch and things worked so smoothly. While we haven't been before to participate in the full buffet for Sunday brunch, we left there was a good, full menu of options. Our waiter (Keith) was so helpful both with describing the menu layout, but also sharing history of the Brown Palace. HE was very helpful and passionate!

Good breakfast. The salmon toast was excellent, crab oscar omelet had plenty of crab though the Hollandaise could have been better, and the recommended beef hash was highly seasoned. Great service, tables spread out and quiet.

We didn’t get to eat at Ellynton’s at all as it is completely closed. We were seated in the hotel lobby. This was misleading from the reservation and disappointing as it was a birthday. Also the food is not at all what one would expect for such a price. Live and learn!

Always a great breakfast at the Brown.
Ellygnton’s is being remodeled, so seating is in lobby atrium.

First and foremost this is not Ellyngton's, which remains closed due to the reduced offerings in response to covid. Unsure of why you can continue to book Ellyngtons as breakfast is served in the Brown Palace Atrium. Sunday Champagne Brunch as traditionally served prior to covid is no more. We were happy with the food, quantity and quality, very tasty breakfast. Service was inattentive.

Due to protestor damage, Ellyngton's is actually closed. The restaurant has temporarily moved into the lobby of the Brown Palace instead, so the venue and ambience is still great! Quiet now that seating is limited with Covid restrictions, so it's nice to be able to have a conversation and not be shouting over the background noise. Menu is limited, and the weekend brunch buffet is not happening now either, but the food is still excellent!

Extremely safe and clean during COVID-19! The staff are truly going above and beyond to create the perfect dining-out experience during these difficult times. The food is delicious, the service is nothing short of outstanding, and the backdrop of the Brown Palace is elegant and classy! Ask for Keith's section, you'll thank me later :-)

Given the trying times we are in the food was wonderful as were the staff! So sorry we couldn’t be in actual Ellyngton’s due to windows being broken out recently, but dining in the atrium of the Brown Palace was beautiful!!

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Brown Palace and ate breakfast at Ellyngton’s. I had The smoked salmon on toast with avocado cream cheese. It was incredible! It was a good portion size for me—and I’m a 200lb man.

The service was top notch. Very polite and attentive service with an air of class without snootiness. It’s difficult to put on a hospitable face these days with COVID 19 dominating the way we interact, but the staff there was incredibly helpful and welcoming.

It was around $10-$20 a plate. I felt like I got my money’s worth from the experience because of the quality of food, first class service, and ambience.

We didn't get the full effect because the restaurant was closed due to damage from the vandals downtown, so sad, they made the very best of it by using the lobby area which was perfect. It is a must see hotel, so much history here, and it is beautifully maintained. Can't wait to go when the dining room is open for seating inside as opposed to the lobby.

Ellyngton's was actually closed due to windows being broken. I ate in the Atrium instead and it was lovely. The steak and eggs breakfast was quite good. Enjoyed the pianist playing too.

Breakfast was served in the main lobby, under a gorgeous Arts-Nouveaux ceiling ten or so stories up. The service was impeccable, with perfectly timed coffee refills and the staff in very good humor. The corned beef hash was probably the best I've ever had.

I prefer to eat at Ellyingtons because it is the only restaurant available where people can actually have a conversation without having to yell over the noise and music.
