We had a great meal! We had an amazing salad with grilled chicken on it. We loved it so much we went back our second night and ordered it again! We were disappointed when we first sat down as the hostess told us they were "super short" with servers so we could not sit outside, which is where we requested. The hostess Mariah ended up serving us and was phenomenal. The second night we sat outside and had the best night of our entire vacation. Our waiter Paul was friendly, provided great service, was entertaining and was knowledgable about the area. We will definitely be back!

The hostess at the desk had a attitude we checked in about 10 minutes early and she rudely said " we don't start seating until 1030! The couple behind us she said the same thing too! Then she said if you don't have reservations don't bother! Other than that everything else was wonderful! The wait staff were friendly and very attentive! Thanks so much!

When I made the reservation I requested outdoor seating. When we arrived the hostess (Latoya?) was very rude and informed us we could not sit outside because we were not doing the brunch. You should not offer outdoor seating if I can’t have it. The hostess also needs to learn to speak clearly.

Unfortunately, our visit here was riddled with disappointments. My boyfriend and I were celebrating two years together. We are from out of state and we were looking for a place where we could eat and still see the mountains. In terms of scenic views, this place hit it out of the park. However, in every other aspect this place missed the mark. First of all, it took 12 minutes from the time we ordered drinks to actually receive them. I would understand if the place were busy, but it was empty (now I know why.) The whipped cream on my drink had already fallen flat by the time it arrived to the table (as shown in the photo). The waitress then took our order. We started with cocktail shrimp as an appetizer—nothing special. They weren’t outstanding but it was $12 for 6 pretty large shrimp so I won’t complain. The part that upset me was the entrees. My boyfriend ordered the elk dish upon recommendation by the waitress. The elk meat and pasta was accompanied by a huge puddle of what I assume is pasta water. The meat was flavorless and reminded me heavily of sloppy joes. Extremely disappointing. I ordered the Mushroom Pasta, which was just okay flavor wise but was served at room temperature, like it’d been sitting in the kitchen for a while before delivery. Even though we hated our entrees, we decided to try dessert because it was our two year anniversary. The caramel apple pie was served again at room temperature and the crust was soggy. We didn’t even finish it. We left the restaurant $120 broker and starving. Save your money—there are so many better places to eat in the area. Service was slow and shoddy. As a waitress at a 5 star steakhouse restaurant myself, I was surprised that our waitress failed to mark our table, bring bread and butter until after our food was down for a period of time, failed to ask if we were celebrating an occasion, or make our visit in any way special or memorable. Don’t waste your time or money here.

When we arrived, the staff was unable to seat us due to being overwhelmed by a large party. The restaurant appeared to be fairly quiet at this time. We went to the bar while we waited to be seated. Once seated, the served shared how they were short staffed. We understood and told her we didn’t mind since we were there primarily for conversation. However, once we ordered a bottle of wine it took 15 minutes to arrive to the table. The waitress did not uncork the bottle for another 15 minutes as we sat there. We ordered an appetizer that arrived after the main entree was served. The entrees were flavorful but they were not hot. All in all, this restaurant misses the mark even though it has amazing views. As newly arrived residents of the area, we will not return as it was such a disappointment for the price.

Before this experience, we would have recommended it. However, we were seated 30 minutes past our reservation time. Our food did not come out of the kitchen until 45 min after we ordered. And that was after I asked where it was and asked to cancel the food and speak to a manager. Out waitress brought one round of drinks and then never came back until we canceled our food order 40 min later. No more drinks or even water refills. We were given free drinks and appetizers as well as two free dinners at another time. So, they tried to make up for it. But, I’m not sure we’ll go back after our free meals.

Server was either overwhelmed or understaffed, took forever to get drinks and order taken, then he came back 15 minutes later to check our order which made it apparent that it had not been sent to kitchen yet, food came out cold and mashed potatoes were obviously fake/instant.

The Sunday brunch buffet has sadly gone downhill in recent years, and today was the last time my family and I will go. Many of the dishes in the buffet line were empty, and the staff were slow to refill them. But even when the buffet line was full, the food just wasn't very good and there wasn't a good variety. Table service was also slow. We did speak to the manager before we left, who was very kind and understanding, but it unfortunately didn't save our poor experience.

Absolutely! This restaurant truly has the best views in the Springs without the $$ you would need to pay at the Broadmoor. We had the brisket and Reuben sandwiches, which were excellent!

The staff were great, the food not so much. My husband had the rib eye which was way overcooked. I had the filet which was also overcooked. One of our other guests ordered chicken and he said it was hard and dry.

I was expecting an amazing lunch but was disappointed to see that none of the buffet items complimented each other. The chicken was bland and dry. The salmon was overcooked. The sides didn't go with the main dishes and there wasn't much of a choice with 3 sides and two main dishes plus the option to make your own pasta dish. The salad was good but didn't have fresh or dried fruit, nuts or many of the toppings I would expect to see for a salad. It was the strangest offering of food and none of it was well cooked or seasoned. Thankfully the ambiance and service are outstanding. Hopefully the dinner options are better.

It appeared as if the staff was new or brought in just for this day (Valentines Day). The hostess wasn’t sure about the table numbering and the wait staff appeared to be rushed all the time. We also had to send our food back because it had cooled down by the time we received it. We even got a call on the way home about a waiter forgetting to put the entree on the bill thinking it was our table, but we paid the full price.
