Fabulous brunch buffet! When we went on Sunday 1/20/19 to celebrate my birthday, the carving station served prime rib and roast pork loin. There was an omelette station and dessert station! I indulged on crab legs, shrimp, scallops, sushi, pork belly and more. Others enjoyed raspberry French toast, chicken pot pie, eggs Benedicts, and so much more. Love, love, love this brunch buffet!

We love the Sunday brunch and also wish the seafood buffet would come back on weekend nights as it was years ago. Service is always wonderful and attentive, food choices delicious and abundant--a great experience and very reasonably priced!

Delightful brunch experience that we treat ourselves two every now and again. Hadn't been there in probably 7 years this time, but it was the same great experience. Please bring back the seafood buffet that used to be on weekends. Seafood assortment at Sunday Brunch was very nice!

We have been to many Sunday brunches, Thanksgiving Day Brunches and Christmas Brunches and have never been disappointed. Their brunch is above and beyond what one would want from breakfast foods, oyster, crab leg, salmon and smoked salmon, main courses like prime rib, turkey and pork roast with all the trimmings as well as cheese and sushi table and the best deserts on the face of the earth!!! We highly recommend these brunches.

the food was old and tired out......Prime rib was shoe leather and shrimp was like rubber. The whole place needs a makeover. Our waiter had body odor so bad and very slow at picking up dirty dishes. Would not recommended, over priced and bad selection.

This restaurant isn't as good as it use to be. Having dined here on several occasions over the last few years it did not meet our expectations. The food preparation was ok but it didn't match up to the price. We had to ask for service on several occasions. Overall we would say the attentiveness we use to experience was missing.

While it had been more than a year since past meeting special friends here, their more frequent visits and personal connection to Said of the wait staff was truly a bonus part of our return. Said spoiled us with service from first sitting down to our final gasp of satisfaction. Champagne and a personally concocted Bloody Mary provided a wonderful jumpstart to our visit. The Buffet is lavish in its presentation and assortment of all stages of the meal. Trust that the choices are many, the quality and quantity totally top notch and the support service staff first rate. The only challenges, besides time, are to select your own favorites or sample the variety of options you wish to try and to counter the overwhelming urge to surrender to gluttony. A dessert section is not intended to be a single selection exercise with both hot and warmer sweets to pick from. Advance Reservations are just a must to also enjoy a classical musical ensemble that accompanies the delightfully large, quiet dining area with scenic views of the grounds and mountains to the outside. Our two birthday ladies received special attention and us guys earned personal points with our wives for celebrating here.

Brunch at the Garden Terrace is always a wonderful experience. The staff is the best around, the abundance of food and choices are plenty, but not overwhelming and the band is a fantastic addition to the ambiance.

Quality of food and service have been declining for several years. Significantly fewer buffet options (excluding desserts) that were either cold or needing refill. Multiple servers and yet each forgot to return with drink refills. For $42 per person, we expect and paid for more. This is the first time I’ve been compelled to write a bad review.

Chose this for Sunday brunch for a family birthday event, to be able to accommodate a variety of different dietary habits and to allow the birthday dude a cornucopia of yum. Very enjoyable. Large, open space, a broad and diverse buffet of well-prepared (and some cooked to order) foods, attractively presented. Excellent drinks from the bar. -- There was an initial glitch with too-slow service (not getting drinks order taken after sitting with bar menu for too long), but with a low-key request to the manager, she herself stepped in and everything went perfectly from then out. Look forward to returning.

Only negative was server attitude at carving station. When asked about raw horseradish was condescending in responding horseradish cream was on the table, suggesting take it or leave. Atypical of previous experience, table waiters and omelet cook were exceptional as usual.

Fathers’ Day, 2018

One of the best day for a very special brunch. This has been our go place for many years. Our visit today was made exceptionally enjoyable due to ‘Katrina” who served us.
Katrina made sure that our every need was taken cared of even before we asked.

“She” made this day even brighter!

Such an enjoyable brunch. 5 stars for sure!

We arrived at 11:30 and like last time the food was at best luke warm and a lot of items were empty and had to ask for them to be refilled. No plates!!!! No containers t put butter for crab were available. Had to keep asking for items to be brought out. Once again the young gentlemen working the omelet bar and refill were more interested in swatting each other with napkins. It was not an enjoyable brunch.

I took my family for Mother’s Day brunch. There was nothing festive about the restaurant or the buffet. Having dined at the Brown Palace and the Broadmoor for the same, I found this to be quite disappointing. The Garden Terrace looks more like a cave. It is poorly lit, featureless and dingy. The buffet is disjointed and poorly thought out. Imagine a cheese station with no bread, no crackers, no Melba toast! Cheese with cake lifters and no cheese knives. No labels for the cheese. Poor variety of cheese. I won’t be back.

This is our third year celebrating at Garden Terrace. The brunch has remained consistently good. Service was very attentive, coffee & water were kept full and plates were cleared seamlessly. The food was kept fresh, I saw platters being exchanged for new ones any time something was running low. The choices are almost overwhelming as you just don't have enough room to try everything! Crab legs were delicious, carving station was fantastic and the omelette station had great toppings. The only complaint, I wish the desserts tasted as good as they looked. They could offer less variety and pay more attention to flavor. Highly recommended and will be back next year!
