    SO delish! Pepper tree steak and bananas foster was bomb. Highly recommend for an intimate date night. Great view of downtown and neat location on the hill, secluded. Great staff all around. Will definitely be coming back.

    Overall the service was great. The Maple smoked Old Fashioned was the best I've had. Given the menu pricing, there were some elements that were lacking. Jumbo Sea Scallops were underwhelming, undersized, not the same size, and overcooked. $24 for 3 mediocre scallops was disappointing. We had the Pepper Steak and Beef Wellington. Pepper Steak was perfect. The Beef Wellington was pretty good but didn't quite live up to the $60 price. Creme Brulee was perfect. Overall a good dining experience. Would have been 5 stars had it not been for the rubbery small "jumbo" sea scallops.

    The food was delicious. I would change my entree next visit from the pepper steak to the steak Diane because I wasn't into the mango chutney, but that was only thing I didn't like. The bananas foster is wonderful.

    Great evening at Pepper tree. My wife's and my entrees were prepared to perfection. my only minor disappointment was that the chutney on my pepper steak was tasty but rather runnier than in the past, and my wife's creme' brûlée was over charred. Otherwise, a usual great visit to Pepper Tree.

    We have been to The Pepper Tree several times and it is always the same! Excellent service, no rush to eat, wonderful steaks with superb seasoning! Steak Diane and Pepper Steak are perfection! The service is always good, nice wait staff. The quality of the food hasn't changed with the passing of Neil and while we miss seeing him when we come, the other staff have picked up where he left off. Dessert is always worth the calories!!! Bananas Foster and Cherries Jubilee cannot be beat!! Perfect for 4 to share.

    We wanted to take pictures of table-side preparations, but we were not told that only Peppered Steak and Steak Diane came with table-side preparations, so we ordered all the wrong items. Later, we asked, and we were told. At the start of the meal, our bread was not served with any introduction, nor were our wines. During service, we were being bombarded by heavy smokes from all other table-side preparations. Make no mistake, the dining room was small, the vent was not adequate, and the smoke was very thick. Your clothes and your hair will smell. Our facial upset and gestures were met with disdain. We weren’t even asked if everything was okay by anyone. We tipped 20% because they were not even worth the upset. By the way, we boxed everything up because the dining experience was so bad. We ended up throwing the box into the trash at our hotel’s valet entrance. We would never return. P.S. We were walking our dog near the restaurant after dinner, as our dog waited in the car. We were approached by an employee and were told to leave their “private property.” There was so such sign or one that we could see at nighttime.

    We have been looking forward to trying the Peppertree for some time now since we recently moved to the west side of town and we were surprised that reservations were a little hard to get so we planned a head for our anniversary dinner. We weren't sure what to expect however the service staff was so friendly and attentive. The food was excellent prepared to perfection. The dining room was a little less intimate than we hoped for our anniversary but we had an amazing time and look forward to going again soon.

    We go to Peppertree every yr for our anniversary and every yr but this yr has been amazing. This yr they seemed understaffed & unable to handle their customer load. My medium steak, cooked tableside, was overcooked to well done because the server was busy elsewhere. However, Peppertree did comp my steak. We will go to Peppertree again and see if it has recovered.

    The service is very professional without being intrusive. The staff all behave as if they were owners, and look after all the diners checking with you as they go by. The beef was truly Prime, cooked to your exact request, tableside. The menu includes non-beef items for those so inclined.

    My parents have lived in the Springs for 16 years and had never been to the Peppertree. They usually go to The Famous or Perry's in Denver. For a change, we decided to try the Peppertree to celebrate my mother's 79th birthday. We were not disappointed! My father is hard of hearing and we were pleasantly surprised to find that this restaurant is on the quiet side - it's a smaller dining room that isn't as "live" as some places and they keep the music pretty low. We arrived 30 minutes before our reservation but they seated us right away. Staff was friendly and attentive. From the special lobster tail appetizer to the bread pudding dessert - everything was delicious! The tableside Pepper Steak and Steak Diane were prepared perfectly by a wonderful and entertaining chef and the Chilean Sea Bass was "amazing" according to my Mother. The Beef Wellington was a little salty but also very good. Although we didn't have much room for dessert, we did order the white chocolate bread pudding with a rum butterscotch sauce to share and we finished every last bite - it was heavenly! After our meal, my mom told my dad he was going to bring her here for Mother's Day!

    This is a hidden restaurant that one would never find just out driving around. Very old school vibe with waiters who cook table side. Food was delicious we had peppercorn steak and halibut French onion soup and table side Cesar salad. Food was delicious and on point. My only note of concern is with all the table side cooking there is a fog of smoke from the cooking, it didn’t ruin the meal but our driver who picked us up said you guys smell like steak. We will come back next time in town

    We have been coming here for at least 15 years and we always leave completely satisfied. Last night was no different, we were greeted very cordially, led to a table near a window and seated like we were family. The Peppersteak was prepped perfectly and the chef was fun to talk with. The cherries jubilee was excellent. The night was perfect for our 58th celebration!
