Best meal ever. The food was fantastic. The service was awesome. They cook your steak table side. Wonderful view of the city.

The Peppertree was a pretty good experience. The food itself was good but on the expensive side as well as the drinks. Was disappointed that you could not substitute items like a soup instead of a salad even for an additional fee. No substitutions at all. Service was very slow. Sat for 15 minutes before we were finally offered a drink menu and then another 15 minutes after our drinks arrived before we ever got our actual dinner menus. We even had to ask for our bread that was given to everyone else around us upon them receiving their drinks. Steaks were great and made table side which is great. Overall it was a good experience. Just wish the service was better.

Probably our best dining experience ever. Steaks were tender, incredibly flavorful, gourmet sauces. Rest of food was over the top. Service was excellent, not rushed, answered all our questions, left alone for plenty of privacy yet on top of all our needs. Very polite and friendly, even some humor without being stuffy for such an elegant place. City view was excellent. Ask for a window seat.

The Peppertree Restaurant has been a local favorite of ours for over 20 years now. Something was really amiss this time. The cocktail waitress was not well-versed in the basics of cocktails. The appetizer cost us $25+, and it was not worth the cost. The Caesar Salad, which used to be among the best Caesar salads that we have ever had, was sub-par. Flavor was lacking and we noticed that the Parmesan cheese that was used on the salad was pre-packaged.

I ordered a steak medium rare and my spouse ordered a steak that was medium. I was presented with a steak that was rare and my spouse had a steak that was medium-rare. NEVER in the past would this had happened. The steaks used to be cooked to total perfection, according to patrons' requests.

The scalloped potatoes were flavorless and very very disappointing.

The last time we ate at The PepperTree, everyone was dressed to the nines. We saw people in levis and rugby shirts....tshirts.....people totally dressed down..

We wonder what has happened to THE PepperTree that we have known and loved for all these years. Has new management taken over???

ALAS, we do not plan to come back.

I've been coming to the restaurant for over 10 years for special occasions and business, and every single time I've been here, I have never been disappointed. Their pepper steak is my absolute favorite, and it goes extremely well with the lobster tail and a side of pasta. Anything that I ever had a concern or question about was quickly rectified and taken care of on the spot! The service is exceptional and friendly and very professional. This restaurant will always have my service.

 (Orlando)·Dined on February 2, 2018

Although the outside needs a facelift (and a nicer sign) and the inside decor was a bit tired, the food and service more than made up for that. The attentiveness of the waiters was perfect. The tuxedo-clad waiters (who also cook at your table) and the view of the city, keeps your attention away from the lack of ambiance. Expect to pay about $70-$90 per person with tip. Worth it! The steak Diane was so tender I actually cut it with the blunt end of my butter knife!! Make sure you try the portobello mushroom appetizer. We will be back.

Everything about this restaurant is wonderful. It very classically furnished. The staff is very professional. The ambience is quiet, great for conversation The food is excellent. It is moderately pricey but a much better value than most high end restaurants. The steak au poivre was amazing as were the veal sweetbreads. If you haven't tried it, you should!

One of the best restaurants EVER for special occasions. Their signature item, Pepper Steak, is to die for. The service is second to none. My family has been going there for years and will continue to for many years to come. Even though it is on the pricey side, it is definitely worth every penny.

The food, ambiance and view are spectacular and by far the finest in the city. Most food preparation is done table-side and is a pleasure to watch. However, the prices are high but worth it. Plan on spending between $75 and $140 per person.

This restaurant has gone downhill. It used to be my favorite in all of Colorado Springs. Escargot had no flavor. Pepper Steak was not medium as was ordered. It was almost well done. Beef was tough.

Pepper Tree is a gem. Food and service have been outstanding every time we have been there. Both with our kids (teen/tween) and business dinners. The steaks are wonderful (have had both the Signature Pepper Steak, and Steak Diane). Lobster bisque is amazing (when available), and a solid wine selection to suit the meal.

One of the top five dinners of my life. Great dinner and a great atmosphere. I would skip dessert next time, however, the appetizer, soup, salad, and dinner were delicious. I have eaten at Ruth's Chris, Morton's, and Fleming's and this breasts them all. They do not even offer a steak knife because you do not need it.

Service was a bit spotty at first but improved quickly. We try to avoid Saturday evenings. To quote a restaurateur that we knew "Saturday's are for emergencies". This being my wife's birthday (actually the next day - Sunday - but they are closed on Sunday's), this was an emergency. The food and preparation were excellent. The "house special" is their Pepper Steak which is the best steak my wife has ever had. It is prepared table-side which makes the meal special. One of the more expensive restaurants in town but well worth price. And don't miss the Cherries Jubilee, also prepared table-side.

My partner and I loved the food and the service at Pepper Tree. It was my partner’s birthday and it was the perfect time to try out this new, high-end restaurant. In many ways, they really did not disappoint. The value, though, is really the only reason I would not recommend Pepper Tree to my friends as a restaurant they could enjoy going regularly. On the other hand if one can afford over $250 meals for two and can justify spending that amount regularly; I would say go for it. Pepper Tree experience may become one of the staples in your life that will make this kind of value justification possible.
