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.

The service was impeccable and I am also guessing that since Tuesday was probably one of their slowest nights we had more servers than normal. This was definitely fine dining and the dinner prices reflect this statement. Men are required to wear a dinner jacket and no denim. You can expect to pay $150 to $200 per plate. They had a special 3-course and 5-course option and I definitely would not choose the 5-course dinner. If you pick the latter, you must like several of the items the Chef has selected and at that price, I think I would want to pick my own selections. We chose the 3-course option that allowed one to pick your own selections. Overall a very pleasant experience and what made it even more enjoyable and spectacular was sharing the evening with the one you love and enjoy.

The Penrose Room is a throwback to old-school elegance but with updated cuisine.

There are amuse-bouches and craft cocktails along with an extensive wine it's that would make most sommeliers envious.

We had the halibut and the bacon wrapped lobster, both of which were superb.

The sorbets were the best we've ever had -- so creamy and flavorful it was hard to remember that it wasn't ice cream.

Our chef's tasting meal was incredible. My wife's aversion to seafood and mushrooms was recognized, wine pairings that didn't match our taste were swapped, and Crystal the sommelier was excellent (as was the entire staff). It was a delightful evening for us (though it is fully priced!).

We had never done a 5 star restaurant before and although the bill was more than I budgeted for it was absolutely an amazing evening. The professionalism, customer service and the way everyone made us feel was exceptional. The food was absolutely delicious and meticulously prepared. We were stuffed for sure. A 5 star restaurant should be on us common folks bucket list for sure and The Penrose Room should be the place to enjoy it. Get dressed up and surprise your loved one or celebrate something special.

In case you were not aware the valet parking is complimentary too. It was just an experience my wife and I won't ever forget and keep in mind that the dinner is about a 3-4 hour experience with live soft music in the background and people even dancing.

My wife and I have annually had dinner at the Penrose Room to celebrate her birthday for decades and have historically raved about the ambience, service and food. It is a pricey experience but well worth it - until this year. Resort-wide, the Broadmoor has gone to an automatic 20% tip on all checks, no matter the number of people at the table. I am an habitual 20% tipper, so on the surface that would seem like no big deal, but we saw a noticeable difference in the service at each restaurant venue we visited on the property this past weekend. The service attention was not the same because, in my view, they get their 20% no matter what and I'm willing to bet the server doesn't get that tip anyway now, where they used to get all or some of it. Another change for the Penrose Room is the menu. An obvious focus on presentation has overtaken the quality and sensibility of the food selection. The menu is very fancy now and even the traditional dessert has been changed. We ordered the carrot cake and it turned out to be a gelatin dish with carrot shavings on top - seriously?! The two of us had a friendly drink in the bar before dinner, a wonderful Caesar Salad made table side then things went downhill with the entrees and dessert. We also had two glasses of wine with dinner and the tab came to over $300 - whoa! I've paid that much in the past with no regrets because the Penrose overall experience has always been so great. Not many place with a band and dance floor, either, which adds to the overall experience we've loved. We hate the changes made there as it has been our favorite restaurant, and I even feel bad giving them such a bad review, but only hope their management reads this and does something about it. We won't be going back there if they don't.

My husband and I were given this as a gift from our son and daughter in law. The food was fantastic, the taste of each food was wonderful. The service was very warm and friendly, we enjoyed the conversation with our servers and they gave us time to visit and experience and taste each course. The Penrose room is defiantly something I would recommend to anyone looking for a dinning experience to go beyond expectations.

The Penrose Room is a high-end restaurant that delivers a fine dining experience. The very attractive room sits atop the South tower of the Broadmoor Hotel and it has beautiful views of Cheyenne Mountain. This is a special occasion restaurant. Both the food and wine are expensive. Most dishes are traditional but with some nouvelle twists. Service is outstanding. This is a restaurant at which one can spend 2 - 3 hours enjoying the food, the view, the service and perhaps some dancing to the live music.

Your chefs style obviously does not suit our palate. We dinner in a few Michelin star restaurants like Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles or Martin Wisharts in Edinburgh. I'm afraid Penrose does not come close. There are too many competing flavours on the plate. The bar area is great and the old world ambiance of the dining room & views we like very much. The food is a turn off.
