    The elegance of the Palace Arms has returned. The ambiance, food, and service were wonderful. Caesar salad was superb, served table side. Can’t wait to return.

    We were visiting Denver from the Cincinnati area and heard from many that the Palace Arms was a must! Upon arrival at The Brown Palace Hotel, we were delighted by the beauty of the lobby and enjoyed a few moments of the jazz combo playing before we entered the restaurant. The Palace Arms is steeped in history and the decor certainly reflected that! We started with a glass of Cava for me and an old fashioned for him along with the caviar and blini. A real treat! I ordered the salmon and the skin was perfectly crisp and delicious. His NY strip looked more like a filet very thick and boxy instead of long. He also had to send the steak back as he’d ordered medium and it arrived rare. Arrival of our first drinks took almost 30 minutes. We were told a server had called off. But our server did not charge for my Cava as an apology, and gave us a comp sherbet. The check came with two large and delicious chocolate truffles. Despite the bit of a service hiccup, we enjoyed the meal tremendously. I’d recommend for anyone looking for an elegant meal in a very interesting venue.

    We have actually eaten here once before and the food was amazing. When we tried it again the service has probably the worst I have ever had. Our server was waiting on only 6 tables including us and didn’t get to us for over 25 minutes. The server in is area actually had to get us drinks. The manager had to bring us the bread cause our server did not, we never received the cavier we ordered. The food took 1.5 hours to come. The food was no where near as good as it was last time. We ordered lobes tee and it was over cooked and complained to the server but we were still charged for it even though my wife didn’t eat it. The server was awful. When the bill came it still had the lobster and the cavier which we needed got. When we asked for it taken off he didn’t even apologize. Dinner was 300$ which is fine but for the taste of food and the service it was Mabye worth 150$. I love how the place feels being in there and it may have been an off night but was not worth the money. I loved this place and was severely disappointed with how the food and service was. Don’t know if I would return after that. The server that was not ours and got us drinks even noticed we were waiting he was great so was the manager getting us bread but I don’t know how you can’t even get to a table in the first 25 minutes when you litterally have 5 other tables to watch.

    Did not realize we would be inundated with cigar smoke the entire meal. Felt sick by the end of the meal- would have stayed longer. Food was great, but won’t be dining here again due to the smoke.

    From the website we checked the menu and decided what we would order, and made reservations. We arrived and were seated and found out there was a Christmas menu with only one item on the menu. This was not indicated on the website. We were then told that the one item on the menu would cost over 3 times the items on the regular menu. For 175.00 each, we thought this was ridiculous for Beef Wellington and left.

    I booked our reservation for Christmas dinner a couple of months back and at the time there wasn’t a menu posted. On arrival I found out it was a set menu of Beef Wellington. My wife is vegetarian, when I asked what the alternatives were we were given one choice of Risotto. So we went ahead with dinner, overall it was fine. Then came the check At $175.00 dollars per plate plus a reasonable but still pricy bottle of wine and our final check was just shy of $500.00 for dinner for two. Im sorry but I felt really ripped off. We stayed at the Brown Palace last year for Christmas but despite being a guest and booking months beforehand they wouldn’t / couldn’t get us a table. We wound up eating one the Ships Tavern. It was really great for what it was. But this year and and dinner was Way Over Priced for what it was. We will never return. Its a beautiful old building with great service but thats not enough to justify $175 dollars per plate and of all things Risotto..

    The food was good, the service mediocre and the value very poor. There was no indication of a prix fixe here on OpenTable or at the restaurant and we were not told about it until we sat down. While the food was good it was not worth the $500 for 2 people. Service was sluggish despite several tables being open. The ambience was nice and enjoyable.

    We tried calling to let them Know we were running a few minutes behind but kept getting hung up on, showed up 8 minutes after our scheduled reservation and they had told us they were closed? It was like the hostess didn't want us to have dinner, the menu is not the same as online they don't have beef Wellington which was what both us had our heart set on, had I known probably would have went somewhere else

    Excellent experience! We had the table side Caesar salad. Best Caesar salad I’ve ever had! The waiter was very attentive and nice. We were a party of 3, and wanted to try everything! We settled on a Wagyu steak, the Pork loin and the Chilean sea bass. It was all DIVINE! The detail they put into each plate is stunning. And then, dessert. That Bordeaux tart was the most amazing dessert I’ve ever had.

    Denver native - first time at the Palace Arms. I am upset that I've never gone before (I'm 52 years old). We started with the ceasar salad made tableside and the steak tartare. I've had a ton of both from many places around the world and the steak tartare was among the best. The ceasar salad likewise. It was made with fresh anchovies and was perfect. I had the lobster and shrimp pasta alla vodka and she had the scallops. They were both cooked perfectly. I didn't check but I'm sure they have a professional chef on staff. Next time your'e looking for an upscale dinner think Palace Arms first! There are many trendy restaurants in the highlands area. I've been to a few. But seriously, this competes and beats most if not all of them.

    A trip back in time to when dining out was a quiet, elegant and thoughtfully prepared event, that is this restaurant. Wonderfully interesting original interior, but very well kept and refreshed. Epic service, true professionals who clearly enjoy their work. Our food was beautifully presented, exceptionally flavorful and the highest quality ingredients. And who many restaurants still offer a Caesar salad prepared table side? This one does, and so many of the other dishes they serve are equally as classic and timeless. Treat yourself to a memorable meal and you will not regret it!

    I was really disappointed in this meal. Hardly anyone there, and they sat us at a table where only one of us could take in the decor. I was facing a wall. SUPER expensive … more so than it should have been. Table side ceaser was good. My martini was all gin with hardly any vermouth. The potato’s were gross… something you’d get at a cheap buffet. Will not be back here and wouldn’t recommend.

    The atmosphere and service were exceptional. We dined in the Palace Arms and Doug was our waiter. He was outstanding in taking care of us. Doug offered several suggestions, one being the Bay Scallops, which I ordered and thoroughly enjoyed. My wife enjoyed the Scampi with king crab and lobster. One accompaniment we ordered was the Asparagus, with Serrano Ham and lemon vinaigrette. We were celebrating our 43rd Anniversary and what an enjoyable way to spend it. Our hats are off to the Brown Palace and the staff. It was a great and memorable Anniversary dinner.

    We were somewhat rushed to get to the theater and the Server an staff accommodated our time constraints with efficiency, panache and great manners! The food was about as good as I have had anywhere ( and that is not inconsiderable) and the Wine List is absolutely one of the best I’ve ever encountered with a lot of very reasonably priced wines and some incredibly hard to find bottles and vintages, though they were priced appropriately.
