Private party facilities
Enhancing the Penrose Room's timeless elegance is the glass-enclosed 24-seat semi-private dining room, which extends out from the main dining room affording guests a breathtaking view of the mountains and lake.

Located at the Southwest corner of the restaurant, the private Cornet Room featuring two tables of 20, or 40 total guests, is the perfect location for a private reception to experience a chef's tasting menu.

There is truly no dining experience more satisfying than one spent at a private Chef's Table at the award-winning Penrose Room. Every detail has been given the utmost attention at the Chef's Table, from the hand-blown Grecian plates custom designed for each course to the individually created menus. With cooking and wine demonstrations for up to 16, guests are treated to an up close look at the chef in action, while the wrap-around balcony offers an irresistible setting for pre-dinner receptions or for sipping port after.

Overall the experience was quite nice The service was outstanding. The menu for the chef’s tasting was eclectic but there were too many grilled or roasted strong vegetables ie cabbage, turnip and cauliflower. The elk dish was chewy and frankly not edible NO attempt was made to accommodate this flaw however. The wine pairings were just okay. The dessert pairing was the best but it was a cocktail not a wine. I did not feel the value was there. Outstanding were the onion custard and the black truffle polenta!

We did the Thursday“winter special”, three courses with wine pairings for each. Awesome food and service. Live music for dancing. Outstanding!

From the moment we walked in we felt welcomed and appreciated as customers. The food was wonderful, the service spot on without being overbearing. The trio who played and sang were terrific. My only gripe is the room is severely in need of a decorating update. I felt like I needed to be wearing padded shoulders and a perm from the 80s.

We had the 3 course tasting menu. Delicious - especially the turnip tofu salad and the tuna. The agnolotti were very good as were the veal cheeks. Dessert was good as well. We had the creme brûlée and the il flotante.

Excellent all the way around

Service was excellent. Food creative and tasty. I really enjoyed the elk. Very nice live quiet jazz band with vocalist played while we were there for my sister's birthday. Beautiful view of downtown Colorado Springs evening lights from one side. The lake on the other side.

This was our first visit to the Penrose Room and it was a delightful experience. We were celebrating a birthday and took advantage of their Winter Special that included a 3-course meal with wine parings. The view is fantastic and the warm, comfortable atmosphere along with the dinner music provided a wonderful ambience. The entire staff was outstanding. Each person was welcoming and friendly. Any questions about the menu selections were explained and some recommendations were made. Each item was described as it was served and the sommelier explained the wine choice and how it enhanced the meal. We both enjoyed the Caramelized Onion Bouillon as an appetizer, chose Ahi Tuna and Tiger Prawns for the main course, and had Le Forêt Noire chocolate dessert to finish the meal. All courses were perfectly prepared and wonderfully presented. The wine parings were a fun way to experience different wines. We would highly recommend the Broadmoor's Penrose Room for your next special occasion or fine dining experience.

We did the tast long menu and it was not cheap but was well worth the high price. The food and service was amazing. Chef Maxwell came out and showered our plates with truffles during one course. The view is stunning and the live music was pleasant. I hope that Michilen comes to Colorado to visit this restaurant.

The atmosphere was elegant with an amazing view of the city. We all really enjoyed our cocktails in the private sitting area by the fireplace before being seated at our table (reminiscent of trips to Italy, France and Scotland) Food was expertly prepared and beautifully presented. Vegetarian menu options were limited for my two companions, but the chef created individual courses for them based on their preferences which were excellent. Service was excellent as well. Wonderful live music ensemble and dancing topped off a memorable anniversary celebration.

Chef Max and his team create complex layered wonders that are absolutely amazing and delicious. His staff is very attentive and knowledgeable. Eric, the sommelier is incredible in pairing just the right wine with each dish. Michelin Star quality restaurant.

Consistently upscale 5-Star restaurant with creative menus, expansive wine list, impeccable service, and unparalleled views. Special occasions become even more memorable in the Penrose Room. Be sure to come dressed for the occasion and prepared to dance to the sultry ballads.

My wife and I enjoyed the evening at the Penrose room for our 21st Anniversary, it was very elegant and romantic. The music was great, the food excellent and the staff attentive. We had a great time.

We were celebrating an anniversary. When we first walked in we were not asked if we wanted our coats checked. The staff seemed very young and inexperienced. Our waiter never even came back to check on us after the food was delivered. We had a drink in the bar and ordered a second of the same in the restaurant. They were different.
We were not happy about our experience.
