Outstanding ambiance as always. The food is fabulous and I can't say enough about the perfect crust on a rare steak. The staff is very attentive without being obnoxious. Always a pleasure to dine at the Palace Arms.
Beautiful space. Service was a bit inattentive from waiter, but the support staff and hosts were very friendly. The desserts I had, Banana Mousse and Napolean cake were mediocre, at best. I also did not like being charged $8 for two half glasses of sparkling water, however the Griffin potatoes are amazing. Overall, beautiful and Id return but not for dessert.
Service was impeccable and food was excellent. Music was a little loud. Not sure what I think about the carpet. I suspect it will soon be dated. It is a special place and a dress code would be appropriate. Also wish a couple of old dessert menu items would return, macaroons and chocolate soup.
Manager kept talking in a booming, disruptive voice at a table with 3 women. Waiter & hostess were lovely. Food was bland for our taste. (Sea bass and scallops.) Wonderful mousse. Old world setting. Nice overall for a special occasion.
This is a very interesting, unique, venue. My wife's steak was excellent.
Food was good but pricey for the quality.
Great atmosphere, great food, and great drinks. High price but would recommend.
Wonderful restaurant with great food and service
This place looks amazing. Very old school interesting...elegant. The menu was a bit small and the portions were a bit small but they were good. pricey, but good.
Excellant service, though. Enjoyed it.
The Palace Arms is a "must do" in Denver. The food and service are phenomenal. We were greeted and seated by Jackie. She is a Treasure. She gives you the exact right amount of social interface. Our Server was Mariah, on a scale of 1-10 She is a 20! Her suggestions of food and beverage provided us with the tight insight to order the most delicious dinner you can imagine. For appetizers we ordered the Mushroom Tart and the Caviared Eggs. The plating and taste were awesome. For the entree we ordered the Scallops and the Duck Breast, again it was awesome. We paired the Big Table Farm Pinot served in Riedel Pinot Glasses and it too was over the top. Through our dinner we were greeted by the Manager Izzy who shared with us the Story of the Palace Arms and what the restaurant is doing as we come back from Covid and staying at home.
For desert we shared the Banana Mousse and it was a Terr way to top off our meal.
As I said, you do need to come here and enjoy all they have to offer. I guarantee you will be delighted.
This was my first time eating at Palace Arms since it reopened. The service was as outstanding as I remember and the new menu and food were even better. We had the ribeye cap and sea bass and both were phenomenal. I haven’t seen a ribeye cap on any other menus here in Denver. I’ll definitely be back!
Beautiful ambience to the hotel entrance and atrium. The restaurant area was beautiful as well. We were seated in a surprisingly empty room for a Holiday weekend. It took more than 10 minutes before someone introduced themselves and asked if we wanted anything. The drinks were spectacular and the salad as well. We were excited about the menu and after a good drink and appetizer start were expecting a great meal. Both entrees were bland and the presentation left something to be desired. The brisket was okay and came with some kind of slushy side and a line green chive. We barely ate them both. Very disappointed.
With the exception of last years lockdown, we have been choosing the Palace Arms for our wedding anniversary for the past eight years. This year was a disappointment. The food was not up to the standards we have been accustomed to in the past. Furthermore, the service was less than stellar.
Perhaps my wife and I have high expectations based on our past experiences with the Palace Arms, or maybe it takes time to recover from last year’s economic impact. In either case, our usual “5-star” feedback has been reduced this year.
Absolutely amazing! Keith is simply a waiter like no other! Wednesday reservations will put you in great hands! The food is outstanding! From presentation to the last bite, each morsel is bursting with flavor! The cocktails are classic and sophisticated. The atmosphere is historic and timeless. Thank you for a perfect evening!
This was a fantastic experience. We'd never been there before and were not disappointed. The food was wonderful, the service the best we've ever had.
Out-of-control (in the best way), Amazing meal. Every staff member, including the chef came by, at some point, to wish my parents a happy 57th Wedding Anniversary… without being instrusive. DO NOT SKIP the Caesar salad prepared table side! A special thank you to Izy & Lou for taking such good care of us. Your service was noted in our minds. 🙏
The food and beverages were very good. Loved the Penicillin and Old Fashions. The staff was friendly, efficient and very attentive to allergy needs. Our water glasses were refilled multiple times throughout the evening.
Service was excellrnt
We had a fabulous time before dinner with the cocktail hour and music in the atrium. Beautiful venue with fantastic service. We will definitely be back for another romantic evening! So glad you are back open!
Maybe Denver's best! Professional servers and great cooking. Perfect for special occasions.
I will be recommending this restaurant to all my friends and family. Was a spectacular experience and the food was divine. Great service and excellent staff
We enjoyed the dining experience. Our service was outstanding and the entrees were very good, the desserts fantastic. It was a bit overpriced, we of course did not have any of your steaks, As told my son-in-law, there is expensive and then there is just stupid, your steak prices are just stupid.
My boyfriend and I visited The Brown Palace on Valentine’s Day. It was like visiting the titanic! Loved it and it was an awesome experience, amazing food and great vibe. Must visit!
Valetines day stay at the Brown Palace. Fixed menu with great choices.
Was not what was expected, delayed food times, rude service loud and annoying atmosphere. Very unprofessional will not be going back.
Truly outstanding. Probably the most elegant restaurant in Denver. Service was very good, but could be slightly improved. Classy restaurants like this shouldn't serve straws with drinks. Food was very good. Only real complaint was the atmosphere. It was too dark to admire the decor.
Perfect evening. Everything was great; food, service, ambiance.
We went for restaurant week. The service was excellent, the food was bland and old fashioned.
Beautiful dining room, exceptional service!
This was during Restaurant Week, other times I'd drop the Value by 1, still very good. Palace Arms, and The Brown Palace, have been around longer than any of us and there's many reasons for that. Perhaps one of the most obvious is service. In our case, an ordered bottle of wine was not available but rather than going back to the extensive and wonderful, wine card, the Sommelier brought over a comparable bottle and best, stressed the price-point would be the same. That's something that few restaurants do, many even trying to serve different vintages (never better ones either). But that's just one item. From service to cuisine to ambience, it was a tremendous night. As it has been for me going back now over 4 different decades.
It took an hour and a half to finally get our main course. When we arrived, we had champagne brought to our table, which was lovely (my husband's birthday)! We had a 5-course meal: our soup was delicious, our main course was brought out and after we sat down and ordered and the salmon and beef were both overcooked and super dry, and our salad (which we eventually got) was less than average. By the time our main course came out, we were not hungry anymore - we had waited so long for it we were nibbling on bread to not get overly tipsy from our wine!
All in all, super slow service, oversalted food, very dry salmon and beef= we do not recommend!
The place is so nice and service and food was so good...
Completely disappointing. I convinced a group of friends to try out this restaurant with me for restaurant week. The idea for restaurant week should be show me what you can do and if its great, I'll return. This was not our experience. The service was great, great waitstaff, but the food was incredibly sub par. The soup was great and then the meal slowly went downhill from there. Everything was over salted to the point that the beef was nearly inedible from the salt. The desserts that we had were dried out and just plain not good. The "creme brulee" tasted store bought and in no way tasted like creme brulee. The food was mildly warm at best, which seemed odd because the whole dinner took 2 1/2 hours. We waited quite a bit of time between courses, so you would think it was coming out fresh, but yet everything tasted like it had been sitting around the kitchen all day. It was incredibly disappointing all around. The beautiful ambiance and the great waitstaff just couldn't save an awful meal at an incredibly high price point. Will not return and will warn others to not bother wasting their money.
This, of course is a classic restaurant with a long history, so to be disappointed is very sad. I would not suggest going for restaurant week; it is way below the normal excellence of Palace Arms. The table next to me looked at the offering and asked for the regular menu; I wish I had done the same. You do not go there to choose short ribs, but that and salmon were the two choices. Soup, salad and desert were as per usual excellent. The grits and collard greens puree served with the meat would gag most of us. A true disappointment for my wife and me.
The front of the house was inhospitable. The food was plain and the entree was unseasoned. The service was very pleasant.
Very nice and special dining experience for our anniversary. The complimentary champagne was a nice touch. Our waiter Ivan did an excellent job
The Valentine’s Day set menu was ok and the wine pairing was expensive.
Outstanding service and food.
Excellent Valentines Day dinner. Nice job!
We dined at the Palace Arms six years ago and it was a wonderful, memorable event. The waitstaff were very attentive and friendly; they made you feel like you were having an extraordinary experience. The meal, at that time, was one of the best we had ever had and we thought the price was worth the noteworthy experience.
That was six years ago and we were dismayed at our recent dining experience. The waitstaff seemed disinterested/bored and their appearances did not seem suitable for an expensive restaurant. The food was mediocre although expensive.
I can only assume the operation has gone through a change of management/ownership.
Sadly, we will not be recommending it to our friends or out of town guests, nor will we be dining there again.
