A great experience: don't know why I waited so long to try it! I enjoyed the famous pepper steak: the sauce was a bit sweet so next time I order it I will say light on the sauce. Amazing food and wine list: we will be back!

The pepper steak with mango chutney is outstanding. So is the lobster bisque and the cherries jubilee. We also like the lobster appetizer with a cherry glaze and the scalloped potatoes. We go there for special occasions because it is a bit on the pricy side, but worth it for the food and service.

We were in this restaurant in November 4,2020. It was our 63rd wedding anniversary. American Express made the reservation for 5 people. We were all excited to go there. I was expecting a warm welcome from the hostess or anyone who are suppose to be greeting us. What we go was a cold treatment. They just sat us and left us alone. That service was horrible. I called American Express and told them our experienced. So here we are again, made reservation for the second time because my family love their steak. We were there January 15. Got in, the same cold treatment, very unfriendly. I ordered a Lobster bisque, tasted it, too salty. So what I was expecting is make me another one. But no offer, I was asked for other I might like to try. I think those soups are pre-made. We spent a lot of money and yet we weren't happy. I think the servers have been working there for so long they are just stale already...no pizzazz any longer. They are just there to take out your food. Nothing more. I will cancel a reservation on the 29th of this month. I cannot be coming back there to get treated so so. Bad memories.

The Pepper Tree is our favorite spot in Colorado Springs and we love celebrating special occasions there. The prices are high, but the food and service are beyond excellent.
They are also competent and knowledgeable about what food and ingredients are or are not gluten free, which means our Celiac family members can eat there safely.

The food and service are always outstanding and the noise level is at a minimum. The pepper steak melts in your mouth and the mango chutney just adds so much flavor! The steak is so tender you never need a steak knife. Great place for a date or special occasion.
If ordering dessert the cherries jubilee is outstanding!

My reservation was confirmed 24 hrs in advance. We arrived a few minutes prior to our reservation time. Not a single light on at the restaurant. No one answering the phone. We did not receive a single notification of closure from the restaurant. We are very disappointed with their lack of professionalism.

Anniversary for my wife and I. We’ve been numerous times and one of our favorite places to eat. Their Pepper Steak and Bananas Foster are two of my favorite things to eat; period. Recommend coming hungry and to wear appropriate attire!

Impeccable service and wonder experience from beginning to end. I thought the coffee encrusted ribeye at the Capital Grill was the best steak I have ever eaten - and it was until I experienced this Pepper Steak - wow - when they tell you that you won’t need a steak knife and they are correct - it was so tender - so wonderful !!!

Looking for a restaurant for a very special occasion? The Pepper Tree is the place to go. It is on the higher end expense wise so be prepared. Everything is freshly prepared. Try the Pepper Steak, you can not go wrong.

We had the Pepper Steak and the Steak Dianne, medium rare. Both cuts of filet were amazing quality and cooked to perfection at our table. The lobster bisque and French onion soups we started with were great as well. Service was attentive without being overbearing.

The Peppertree never disappoints, the food and service were both excellent! I had the Entree Special of halibut with a lobster risotto cake. All I can say is that it was outstanding. My husband had steak Diane, it was wonderful as well. We come in from NY, to visit our kids a couple times during the year and we always have a special night out to The Peppertree. See you next time!

I invited a friend from out of town to join us to have dinner here. The attire for the staff was disgusting and overall nasty. The utensils where nasty with past customers food still on them. The 12oz I had ordered was raw. My girlfriend's steak was overcooked where it was dry, after a second attempt where he stood there and argued about the steak sends another plate where he states it was now undercooked. My girlfriend lost her appetite please don't make the same mistake we made. The food is so overpriced and steak tasted nasty.

We moved to Colorado from South Florida and have been looking for a restaurant with the same quality food that we enjoyed back home. The Pepper Tree is your spot! This will be our go to spot now that we know about it whenever we are looking for that excellent meal and experience. The food and service were both spot on, and would recommend to anyone looking for a great night out!
