    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!

    We enjoyed a table for two and superb service. The bourbon Manhattans and Margaritas started the evening off well. Bartender was excellent and provided Carpano Formula Antica as the sweet Vermouth. Excellent... All of the starters, entrees, and desserts were delicious. Highly recommend this dining establishment.

    The vibe was good and service was good. Good was good but way overpriced for what they serve. I got a scampi and a soup and felt like it was a $30 - $40 meal. Out the door we paid $180

    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.

    The service and food were wonderful. We read from others that they enforced a dress code that included women wearing long sleeves and long dress or trousers. They seemed not to care. Men wearing shorts, ball caps and women in VERY casual dress. Would recommend.

    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.

    We ate at three different restaurants in the Brown Palace: Ship’s Tavern, Palace Arms, and Ellington’s. By far, Palace Arms, which we selected for our anniversary dinner, was the most disappointing. We started the evening with the server informing us that she was the only server on staff for the evening after waiting 10 minutes for her to come by. A gentleman came by with bread and water and I asked him what they were to which he replied “bread”. I asked him what the spreads were and he did not know what they were either. We did some tasting and discovered that one loaf was cranberry filled and one was white, and the spreads were chive butter and strawberry preserves. For starters, we had the raviolo, which was flavorless and soup like, and the tomato soup, which was good, but not $18 good. For the entree, my husband got the halibut, which he described as good, but again for over $50 for the meal, good does not cut it. I got scampi with lobster and crab. The noodles were undercooked and clumped together, while the crab was over cooked. Dessert was prettier than it actually tasted and again, disappointing. For what was supposed to be fine dining, our experience was confusing. We had a better overall experience dining in the pub than in Palace Arms.

    Brown Palace has always been the standard bearer for fine dining in Denver. The past couple years have been very disappointing in terms of quality. Service and ambiance remain high - menu and quality have diminished over the years.

    Pining for the days of yore. We gave the Palace Arms a chance after a couple years of COVID and ownership changes. Suggest keep working it people… Ambiance is fantastic Service was a bit awkward with an ever present server on their 4th day saying “everything was good “… However the ebullient sommelier was as fun as she was informative. Food - Mushroom Bisque was too starched and too salty. The seabass was pan seared perfectly however the crab cake was over salted, as was the base. I would have returned the plates were it not for being lost in love in celebratory moment with my wife - we got married at The Brown Palace 8 years ago and had an awesome experience. P.S. Bring back the starched linens and consider enforcing a dress code…
