Food was incredible in every way! 5 Stars.
My only recommendation would be to have the landscaping outside the windows be prettier and update the bathrooms.
Food is better than the Broadmoor but atmosphere needs updating!!

The pepper steaks and steak Diane were amazing, so tender you only needed a regular knife to cut it. Very attentive staff. Because they cook the steaks table side, there were a few moments of smoke but still well worth the drive from Denver. Look forward to our next dinner there.

Fine dining and very memorable. View is nice, but windows need to be washed. Steaks and desserts cooked table side. Delicious and fun. Prices are very high.

The Peppertree restaurant is the standard for a good steak in Colorado Springs. They’ve been around forever and the main features of their menu are carved in stone to the left of the door when you walk in. Wonderful wait staff, great drinks, best steak in the city.

The food and service were outstanding! The wait staff was very friendly and engaging without being annoying. The ambiance is fine but nothing special, for sure. The setting is a parking lot but inside there is a view of the city with a highway in between. I was taken aback when we drove up, but was quickly reassured when we were greeted inside. It was a LOVElY evening and absolutely delicious food. My husband had the bone=n ribeye and said it was the best he's ever had. I had the pepper steak and loved it. My friend had steak Diane, and it was delicious also. I highly recommend the Pepper Tree.

The food was very disappointing, for the Steak Diane and Pepper steak were well done, dry and very tough. Medium rare they weren’t and that was how the meat was ordered. There were 3 cooks basting the meat at various times and each didn’t seem to know how long the others had been basting .The outcome was never in doubt...dry and tasteless . Yes, we should have sent them back but after driving from Denver we didn’t want to wait for the process to be completed again . The sauces , bread, potato and salads were excellent . We tried it once and no more .

Wonderful place overall! My fiancé and I went to celebrate our engagement and we will always measure a good steak by how they do it here. Done to perfection and you can cut it with a butter knife!

Pepper Tree is a true hidden gem. Some might suggest that it is not hidden, as it has been around for quite some time. However, I think that it sometimes is lost when weighing options for steak dinners. That said, it should be at the top of the list in regards to Colorado Springs and Steak House choices. Simply put, their Steak Diane cannot be beat. Some of the best tasting food you will ever have, cooked table side, by some of the friendliest hosts you will ever meet. Thank you.

This was our third visit to the Pepper Tree, and as with the times before the meal and service was outstanding. We were very well taken care, the fish was fresh and the steak was prepared perfectly.

Hands down the best steak and overall restaurant in Colorado Springs. The steaks are so delicious and tender, you can cut with a butter knife. If you haven't experienced Pepper Tree yet, then on your next special occasion, make reservations and take someone special there. You will not be disappointed!!

Wait staff / service staff was loud - rushed - even somewhat aggressive in demeanor - lacking professionalism / with a service quality level that was well below what one would expect at a restaurant of this price range - food was fine - lobster bisque was lukewarm, however, and our check was literally slid across the table rather than handed to us - (2 guests/birthday/Mother and Son). We were called "folks/guys" - asked "how are WE doing today...". We are well versed in upscale dining and this was not one of them. Our first and last visit to the Peppertree.

The one positive thing was the waitstaff. The service was very good and the staff was very kind to my mom, who’s birthday we were celebrating.
Unfortunately, the restaurant is outdated. From the decor, to the “uniforms” that the waiters wore, the Peppertree screamed 1990.
The food was ok, but did not warrant the high price-points. Leftovers 2 days later were better than the night originally served.
