Incredibly disappointing experience from start to finish. Began with a cold greeting by the manager. Upon sitting down, 2/4 coffee cups were visibly soiled. At the table with clean plates, someone had placed their food refuse, which sat for 15 minutes before staff bothered to clear it. Food options at 1 PM were minimal and clearly not fresh, and not being replenished. Our server, Katie, was wonderful and helpful. However, the young man serving the prime rib was rolling his eyes at guests, and the servers were audibly griping about the guests. Another server sneezed into her hands and wiped her hands on her apron. This was a 70th birthday celebration and an unbelievable disappointment. Poor service, unpalatable food, and unsanitary to boot.

The food was great as always. I like that there are always some new and interesting dishes.
But, otherwise today didn't spark joy for me, but it's usually much better, so I will give it another chance.
> 10 minutes after brunch opened, several items hadn't been put out. Cocktail sauce, dressings, etc. had no spoons available.
> The bubbly appears to have been downgraded from Freixenet to ??. (probably fine if you're a mimosa person - I prefer straight dry bubbly.)
> We had to flag down the servers twice when our glasses ran dry (and yes, we were sipping). Not so great when it's $12 extra pp for the bubbles.
> The new musician trio was stationed at a higher level than the old one, which made them seem louder. If you like quiet, I'd suggest asking for a table away from them.

As always, we had a wonderful brunch at the Garden Terrace, where we go every month or so. Will be looking forward to next time, as the ambiance, service and food are unsurpassed. We always come away refreshed from a lovely experience.

Waited for a long time for coffee refills. Some of the food was not very hot from buffet. Other than that everything else was great.

The variety offered at the Sunday Brunch was amazing, it was hard to choose from all the flavorful foods. It was hard to not jump right into the delicious desserts! Everyone was able to get what and how much they wanted, the wait staff was attentive and very polite, and the jazz trio that was playing in the background made for a very enjoyable experience!

This is all-you-can-eat hotel food. The oysters were flabby and flavorless; the cocktail shrimp were bland and water-logged. Prime rib was nicely rare, but not very flavorful. Bacon-wrapped pork loin was good but not great, with no evidence of the bacon. The Asian-style pork belly was very nice. My husband liked the cod (which he thought tasted like scallops) so much he had seconds. He also liked the chicken pot pie. On the breakfast buffet the bacon and breakfast sausage were tasty; eggs Benedict was pretty good but the English muffin was tough and hard to cut through. They do have an omelet station, and they're probably good. They also make crepes to order for dessert.
Service was friendly but scattered. We had to ask twice about the "champagne" option, and then ask for it to be served twice. I think there are better brunch options in and around Denver, especially at this price point.

Lots of good food options. The seafood display was the best, it outdid the pastry’s. It was overpriced for the selection, & the decor needs to be updated. The ambiance was not good.

Excellent service and great atmosphere. The live music was exceptional and the room was well positioned and limited the venue from being overcrowded. My only complaints were that the food was not laid out well or in order, people were bumping into each other and it was a bit disorganized. The popular omelet station was poorly placed. Also, I was very disappointed not to see pancakes as an option.

Once again the service for Sunday Brunch was outstanding. As a repeat customer, seeing the staff is liking visiting a friend. The quality and selection of food was again outstanding. Nice little changes to the presentation of the smoked fish board and charcuterie board area.

They couldn’t find our Open Table reservation even after I showed them the email. It was 11 am, they said help yourself to the buffet so we tried, I was given a stern “for future reference” talk that it closed at 10 am and there was hardly anything there and they were clearing it while we dished up. We had to ask twice for drinks. Bad all the way around.

Loved everything about this visit. My husband and I had been here years ago and it was great just a lil on the expensive side but you get what you pay for. We took some friends of ours this time. They all loved it! We are now planing our next trip. Love,love, love.

Made a reservation but still waited 10 min at host stand. Went up for food several times and they were out of everything. All chaffers by meat station empty. No waffles or eggs Benedict. So sat down twice and waited until they refilled it.
Went to dessert station and no one there Manning it so did not get strawberry/rhubarb flambé. :(
Not up to its usual standard.

I have been going there about every 2 months for years, even before Hilton was involved. But since they have raised the price without offering any extra food choices and the desserts have become less creative i wont be going back I have always enjoyed the quality of the food and service.
But "The Law of Diminishing returns" has been broken.
I am in the food mgr business so I cant relate to food and labor increases but from my experience in purchasing ingredients, tracking costs and being competitive in raise wages to keep staff i don't think their price increase cant be justified.

For a brunch at a Hotel very nice.
Live jazz, great view of the golf course.
Nice for a special occasion but not a weekly location.

We have been to the Hilton Inverness Garden Terrace for Brunch, many times over the years. This time we felt the food was exceptional! The Garden Terrace is a lovely place to have Brunch. The tables are spaced out, and their is a panoramic view that is available from most of the seats. There is live music that is soft enough to talk over. This is a good place to spend a couple of hours over a meal.
