Exceptional meal and service. Burger and steak were prepared perfectly. Hand cut fries were the best I've had. Atmosphere was relaxed and people seemed to really be enjoying themselves.

We had made a reservation for 2 people several weeks prior to our dinner. On the day of we called to ask if we could change it from 2 to 4 people. We were told that the restaurant was full that evening and they could not accommodate us. When we arrived at 7 pm and left at 8:30 the entire bar was empty. They probably had 15 tables that would have allowed us to have 4 people. The host was not able to give us explanation as to why they could not have accommodated us.

We felt very rushed throughout our meal. The first course of salad came about 3 minutes after we ordered.

We will not return and would not recommend.

Our server was satisfactory--attentive, well-informed, polite. No complaints with him, but it was not "five-star" service. The Caesar Salad was divine--best I've had in a long while. We had prime rib and a filet. The Prime Rib was pedestrian--nothing special there. The filet was supposed to be "Medium," but was rare in places, and partially burned in others. Overall, both cuts of meat had a nice taste, but we have had FAR BETTER steak dinners at half the cost. It was quite disappointing, and we will not be returning.

Everything was great but the manager (Matt) came by to wish us a happy Anniversary and gave us the dessert menu stating that dessert was on the house and when the bill came we were charged for dessert. $9 isn’t that big of a deal but we felt like we were shorted.

We specified on the reservation request it was a special event - date night. Made no difference apparently as to where we were seated as the hostess took us back into the large dining room filled with groups and sat us rather than place us in the front in a small, quiet table for two. I get the feeling the Broadmoor is just trying to move bodies through the Tavern (which used to be called the tavern - the menus still say "the tavern", the napkins still say "the tavern", but it's "la taverna" now. Also, when you try to book on the broadmoor website, when selecting the tavern, it actually books you at the bowling alley there (which isn't very convenient unless you want to eat at the bowling alley). When I dine at the Broadmoor, I think of peaceful elegance, not a loud dining room. The service from our waiter was fantastic. Know that they automatically include a 20% gratuity, regardless of party size.

We had the Wagyu Beef Ribeye steak that was excellent. You could seriously cut it with your fork and the taste was delicious! Probably the best steak we've ever had anywhere. The waitress was great and knew the menu very well. Excellent service! The Ambiance, however did not match the food. We were in the back section (kind of a garden room) that reminded us of a Vegas all you can eat room. The only other choice of seating was right by a very cheesy band playing very loud music.

The food and service far exceeded our expectations! Kate was an exceptional server and not only gave us great ideas on what we should orde, but also charmed us with her humor. The macaroni and cheese as a side was the best we have ever had. In addition, as an entree, the Wagyu hamburger was unbelievably good. We will definitely be back!

We were celebrating our sons 24th Birthday.Our waiter Richard seemed disinterested. He did not bring bread or replace my silverware when taken after appetizer. We had to get utensils from another table as he was not around . He was friendly but we felt for an included 20% tip and price of the meal he should have been more conscientious.

I was hoping that this time would be different. We are drawn to the Broadmoor for the picturesque views and historic past. This is the third time we tried having dinner at La Taverne and it will be the last. The food is sub par (Prime Rib is cold, Shrimp cocktail small and over-priced and sides were all cold). My son did enjoy his cheeseburger. The service was terrible and to add insult to injury they automatically add a 20% tip! I can honestly say we will not return for dinner and I cannot recommend it to anyone. The views are beautiful but the food and service fall far short of expectations

I was badly in need of a little mini-vacation. I chose this restaurant because of past good experiences. A dear friend had received a new job and will be moving. We enjoyed not only the restaurant experience but also the shops that are around the entrance. The rock shop, art gallery, and Luna dress store were outstanding. All works of art. Thank-you for the good time.

Super disappointed far a steak restaurant. The food was not cleared from the table. The steaks were over cooked. I Daske multiple times for my server to return to my table. I think they just had a horrible awful night. They did compensate and apologize for the off night. All the other restaurants at the broadmoor had been exceptional

I have grown up going to the Tavern and the food was less than ordinary and bordering on awful. Our waiter had too many tables and when my 93 year old father and I wanted anything, it was quite a wait. Not a good experience, expensive and I will not venture back soon.
Sorry Broadmoor!

The exceptional person was at the check in desk, Amy, and she helped get a wheelchair for my father and even went to great lengths to get us to another building.

We wanted a special place to celebrate a birthday and this was a very special place! It was an expensive meal but the quality was outstanding and the garden room has such a wonderful atmosphere. Service was excellent and our meal could not have been any better. We had cocktails, a fabulous bread basket, the best French onion soup ever, prime rib with giant baked potato, and red trout perfectly cooked with the most delicious bernaisse sauce. Perfect!

The food was as usual very good. The service however was severely lacking in attention. The waiter failed to bring water until the end of the meal. The service was slow and the waiter kept apologizing for his lack of attention and thanking us for "our patience". If the tip was not automatically added he would not have received the same 20% that is automatically added.
