Always great service and the menu is excellent! It is the best restaurant in Denver for a business luncheon or to have a meal with family and friends!

Getting our food took too long more than 30 mins after we ordered. I don't know why but where we were sitting it was quite chilly, a few of us had to put our coats back on and it wasn't that cold out. The food was very well presented and tasted delicious but it just took too long. None of us had been to Ellyngtons before and wanted to see it for the holiday season, and celebrating one of the members in our group had a birthday. We had a lovely time.

I very rarely give reviews but feel I must comment on the lunch experience which was quite disappointing. Beginning with the person at the desk who headed us (4) towards a large table seating six people....I asked for another table... oh yes,.. no apology (we had a previously made reservation). We were not offered coffee or tea. But midway through the meal one friend asked for tea and the waiter never returned .... I, myself, was going to ask for coffee when he brought the tea. The waiter did apologize and kept saying how busy he was ... he arrived at the table in a rush.. when I wanted just a wedge of lemon for my crab cake we finally managed to get another waiter and then wait for the lemon. At the end of the meal, we had to actually get his attention from another table to bring us the checks and then we had to wait again for him to finally come back and return the credit card that I had used. So unfortunately we will never be returning to Ellynton's because of the foregoing. My friends were polite enough not to say anything until I asked their impression later and they all said they were equally disappointed.

I surprisingly underwhelmed by the food and service. We didn't do the buffet which may have been a mistake but we were largely forgotten about and our food was very so-so

Not sure it was worth the $200 for 2 for brunch. While it was nice the selections were not great. The area for getting your food was so crowded it took the enjoyment out of it. The omlet bar was so crowded it backed up the entire line because it was not a separate area. Only one pasta dish. Very little vegetable choices. All around it was not half as good as the Broadmoor or others. Pretty disappointed. Service was very good

Ellyngton's at the Brown Palace is a true hidden gem. The wait staff is nothing short of sublime to go with the elegant ambiance and fabulous food. I can think of no better place to enjoy a meal and quiet company on a Saturday morning than at Ellyngton's.

We went for their Sunday brunch. The selection was amazing and all the food was great. The baked goods are all made in-house and the dessert buffet was one of a kind. We were there for Halloween brunch and the price was almost $20 more than the normal price, which we didn’t expect and I think that did make it a bit overpriced. Still - a great way to start the Sunday.

The Champagne Brunch was outstanding. Besides offering a carving station, sushi bar, made-to-order omelette station, they also had a made-to-order pancake station. For dessert, they had a double chocolate fountain offering both milk & white chocolate, standard dessert pairings, fresh dark hot chocolate and a bananas foster station. An excellent brunch for special occasions!!

My wife and I came to Denver for our 37th wedding anniversary. We are from Memphis, Tennessee. I surprised her with the Sunday Brunch. The decor was perfect. The food was diverse and very delicious no matter the palate. The service left nothing to be desired. The accomplished musicians seasoned the atmosphere with some soothing melodies. I love Denver and my wife thinks it is a good place to visit. She now insists whenever we come to Denver it must have a Sunday stay over so she can have "HER BRUNCH FIX'. THANK YOU FOR ALLOW US TO STROLL DOWN THE AISLES OF ONE OF THE TOP BRUNCHES IN THE WORLD.

Brunch on Sunday is always a treat here! Moderate spread of very nicely prepared items in a lovely dining room. Attentive service and a musical background combo to entertain. Coupled with the optional bottomless mimosas it is one of our go-to places in Denver.

The Brown Palace is a historic gem in Denver. The architecture of the hotel is outstanding. We took the guided tour of the hotel, and enjoyed learning about the history of the building. Lunch in the Ellyngton Room was first class. I would recommend the Brown Palace as a definite must do while in Denver.

Table service was slow. Had to ask for silverware, coffee and juice repeatedly. We were celebrating a birthday and the waiter forgot. Delivered a cupcake in a to go box with an unlit candle. Waiters bumped into our chairs repeatedly as they passed, but still couldn't refill our glasses or clear our table. Waiter tried to usher us out after :45 minutes.

But, food was very good and enjoy the historic hotel. Very sad that the table service was so bad.

We received horrible service from the time we walked in. We sat at the table for over 15 minutes and only for drinks after I mentioned it while another waiter was walking by. The waiter was very inattentive
My wife enjoyed her food. I did not. My eggs Benedict was way over cooked. I would not recommend this restraint for its cost.

For the price, I was a little disappointed with the portion size of my steak salad. There was a decent amount of steak, but there also was a good amount of chewy fat on it. The dessert size was small for the price as well. Love the rolls and iced tea though.
