    Nice wine selection. Dover sole wasn’t great. They drown it in a heavy sauce. Fish was only average. Steaks are slightly below usual quality. Salads are awesome. Desserts are best in town.

    Great place to celebrate an anniversary! My wife and I were there for ours, and there were at least three other couples there also celebrating theirs. The Pepper Tree Restaurant has the best steaks I have ever had. I had their signature Pepper Steak and my wife had the bone-in Ribeye. Both were cooked perfectly and excellent.

    The appetizer we ordered was Maryland Crab Cakes. The menu stated they came with a raspberry sauce. There were two TINY cakes on the plate and only a drizzle of the sauce. Not nearly enough for even two people, let alone four of us. $25!! What? Disappointed. The appetizers are way too small and pricey for what they give you. We will forego them in the future. Additionally, two of us ordered the chutney pepper steaks RARE and they were both medium, at best. Unfortunately, our gratuity reflected this displeasure. We will return but will order more wisely.

    1st time at Peppertree and it was a wonderful experience. Top Class! Had reservation, greeted and seated right away. I had famous pepper steak and my mother steak Diana. Cooked at your table and steaks melts in your mouth - accompanied with scalloped potatoes (awesome) and salad and warm bread to start. We were full but still had coffee and dessert - crème brûlée and banana foster. The banana foster is good for 2 people and is out of this world! The favor is so good! The crème brûlée is great as well. This is a must if you are in Colorado Springs. Truly an exceptional dining experience. Highly recommend.

    We've been to the Pepper Tree several times over the past 25 years but this was the first time in 5+ years and I'm sad to say that it's gone down hill. Things started off badly when we arrived for our 7:00 PM reservation. The table was still occupied but we were welcome to wait in the bar. The bar isn't much bigger than a coat closet. There was already a group of 3 standing in the bar and it felt like 5 would be too crowded so we waited in the entry until they were seated. The bar tender also had to cover the dining room so she was usually running between the bar and the dining room. We didn't get seated until 7:30 and discovered they had sold out of the rice! How does a place that small run out of a staple? The "Waiter" was mostly absent. After the order was taken, we didn't see him again until he brought us the bill. The guys that actually cook the fillets at your table were amazing! Friendly, funny, & true craftsmen. In summary, although the food was absolutely amazing; the operation was lacking that top notch flair that we've come to expect from The Pepper Tree so the price no longer matches the overall experience.

    Excellent choice for our 29th anniversary date night! Cara and Tara both knew the the menu very well and recommended excellent pairings. Rodrigo was informative and entertaining without being intrusive while preparing the table side dishes. The ambience and noise level was such that despite the coziness of the restaurant, other tables' conversations could not be heard. And of course the steak Diane, pepper steak, crabcakes, bananas foster and creme brule were all excellent and perfectly presented. Add to all that a beautiful panoramic view of the Springs and it was overall a very nice evening that we would be happy to repeat.

    The signature steaks are excellent! Servers are friendly, professional, and know how to cook a great steak table side. Restaurant is comfortable and quiet, but we had an early evening reservation so restaurant was not full at the time. Food and drinks a bit overpriced. Overall a good experience and we will likely return.

    Delightful food with a wonderful service staff. Traditional fare done very well for a table side experience. Recommend a filet, bananas foster, and a good glass of wine. I think their price, in comparison to equivalent service and cuisine in the Springs, is very good. A deer sauntered by the panoramic windows (which my wife loved). Relatively, the weakest link is the dining space. It would be cool to combine the glorious service, food, and lovely view with a slightly more dynamic dining space…but that, in no way, compromises the experience…it’s just a possible enhancement.

    There’s a dress code although it’s not listed anywhere on their site. They didn’t acknowledge that our reservation said it was to celebrate our anniversary. They didn’t ask us, though they asked every table around us. They sat us at a crowded center table when there were plenty of tables along the edge. We felt discriminated against due to not being white. I’d never go here again. Racist and snooty.
