The steak lived up to the hype. The pepper steak was so flavorful. The mango chutney offers a sweet contrast to the pepper. The wait staff was fun and helpful. The steaks and desserts are prepared table-side, which is fun.
We have been to Pepper Tree many times, in fact this is our go to for anniversary's, and birthdays. I always get the "pepper steak" and have never been disappointed, it is always superb. The view is great with the city lights and dessert is a perfect ending to our evening. We have made friends with the owner and staff so we enjoy going to dinner here. By all means please go for a great time.
Great food, beautiful on the plate, great service, great view, great wine. Some items on the menu, they'll prepare them at table-side!
The service is first class ... I got the impression they were NOT thinking "This guy isn't wealthy." Flawless and friendly service.
We enjoy The Peppertree Restaurant. We find any excuse to go!
It's some of the best food we've had in the Springs. The staff is incredible, friendly and informative.
We would definitely recommend this as a great dining experience and wonderful for celebrating special occasions as well.
The Peppersteak, even though we requested a well done steak, was so tender and moist, and we
were able to cut it with a butter knife - absolutely delicious. We topped it off with cherry's jubilee over ice cream - heavenly. The wait staff and chef were very pleasant
Our table was available before our scheduled time. The Maryland Crab Cakes were wonderful and the salads that came with each meal was bountiful. The main courses were cooked as desired and having them cooked at the table was an experience. The desserts were large enough to share. The wait staff were very attentive and each course was delivered promptly while hot. Casual atmosphere to wine and dine.
wonderful place to take customers for both business and casual discussions
The service was very slow at first. Four servers were at one table having a good time. Our server finally took our drink order and the service did pick up. The food was excellent as usual and overall it was a good experience.
The Pepper Tree is our go-to restaurant for special occasions. The service, the atmosphere, and of course the food is fantastic! The attention to detail and the friendliness of the staff and owner make us feel right at home.
Outstanding service and food, great attention to detail. Highly Recommend.
It just doesn't get any better! The food and service were outstanding. The sommelier is really knowledgable. It is an incredible experience and our favorite fine dining restaurant.
So lucky to have found Pepper Tree. Our family was in Colorado Springs for my son's college graduation. Pepper Tree did not disappoint.
Food smelled absolutely fantastic when we arrived. Staff was fabulous and took care of our party of extended family. Every single item we had from cocktails to desserts were all fantastic,
View was beautiful as the evening went to dusk and could see the sunset across the city.
Thanks again for making a special day even better with our experience at Pepper Tree!
Neil Levy is perhaps the best restaurateur in the Colorado Springs (COS) area. He knows good food and provides same for his guests. He provides a great atmosphere for dining (not eating as most COS restaurants do.
The menu selection and quality of the food and service are superb. The wine list is excellent, featuring many wines produced outside the US - both reds and whites.
For my money this is the best restaurant (and it IS NOT fast food or chain restaurant food) - it is quality food served in a lovely atmosphere with care from ingredients to the table.
Wonderful dining experience ...we never felt rushed despite being there on a busy evening-Mother's Day weekend.
We love this restaurant. The food is always great - the service is perfect - the view is wonderful.
Excellent menu, food preparation, and servers. We have been repeat customers for years.
Had great expectations for their food but it was anything but that. Order their Rib-eye steak that came out wrong. Told waiter about it and he said no problem they'll make me another one only to find out they took my steak back to re heat it...Classless and just wrong! You can never re heat a steak to make it right... I expected more from this place and was very disappointed.
It was hard but I did it. I went there after I saw a delicious fish dish on the online menu. But after walking in, it was nearly impossible to resist the smell of the steak cooking...it smelled beyond fabulous!!! So be warned, if you're going there for a steak, the temptation will be nearly impossible to resist!!! BUT...the Chilean Sea bass was to die for...one of the best I've tried. I'll 100% return next time I go to CO Springs. ...will definitely have to try a steak next time!
The entire experience was excellent. My wife had the special Halibut and I had the Filet Mignon. Both meals were excellent as was the service.
We had a delicious salad and shared a creme brûlée with coffee.
I would highly recommend the Pepper Tree to all of my friends.
We last visited 6 years ago at a conference and came back because we had a great experience. It was as good if not better than the last time. One of best steaks I can remember for quite some time. Great service and attention to detail. Everyone in our party had a great experience.
When we are in town and want to celebrate we go to Pepper Tree. Very relaxing. Nice view. Friendly staff and excellent food.
Pepper Tree is a delightful throwback. It's elegance and charm are something held over from 40 years ago. The ambiance feels dated, but not in a negative way. It seems they have captured and held onto a character and quality other restaurants have forgotten.
Our meal was enjoyable, the food delicious and the table-side service excellent. However, it was not comfortable for a group of eight. The seating lends itself ideally to quiet couples.
Also, the service in the bar area before our meal was lacking. We were 15 minutes early for our reservation and in that time we were simply handed a menu and then left to ourselves. We were seated without ever having placed our drink order at the bar. Also, their bar does not carry St. Germain (a personal joy) so I could not indulge in my favorite pre-steak cocktail: a Paris Manhattan.
Peppertree is our favorite restaurant in Colorado Springs. The Pepper Steak and Steak Diane are the best!
Excellent dining experience for our Anniversary. Met our expectations fully and we had a really enjoyable evening in all aspects.
My boyfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary here. The atmosphere was great and the service was wonderful too. However, our steaks were not cooked properly. I asked for mine med. well and he asked for his medium. Mine fine throughout most of the meat except one part where it was very pink. His was cooked rare and had to be taken back to the kitchen two times to get it correct.
Amazing find in a hidden location. Great food, great wine, great service!
If you are looking for super high quality food that won't send you packing with an empty tummy, this is your place. Generous portions on the French onion soup had my lossening my belt before we got to dessert. Absolutely recommend the Pepper Tree.
I ordered the fish, and it was extremely greasy. The service was excellent. I just found the food to be smothered in grease. The asparagus, was swimming in butter.
n this visit my wife and I were joined by 2 of our friends. Dinner starts with fresh baked bread served warm with butter that has been softened. I make this note as it’s nice to see place do this for once. All entrees are served with your choice of a house salad and then a potato, pasta or rice. My wife ordered the Fresh Chilean Seabass and after a few bites could only produce audible sounds of joy. My wife decided on the wild rice which was served perfectly cooked and the dill dressing on the house salad. Our friends and I went with the classic Pepper steak. I ordered a rare cooked 12 oz. that was served perfectly to temp served with a loaded bake potato. The Indian mango Chutney and black cracked pepper truly makes this dish unique and the table side cooking shows the wait staff’s talents. For dessert we ordered the classic apple pie with cinnamon ice cream which was a perfect way to the end the course. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable.
The entire meal was incredible! The table side service is a must, the steak diane was the best I have ever had and for my husband who had never experienced table side service, he was very impressed. The steak was cooked table side and the "flaming" of the entrée was a worthy experience. Would highly recommend The Pepper Tree to anyone and will return in the future.
Appetizer (portabella) great, the entree (veal and Salmon) was subpar for taste, presentation and portion. Actually the side dish outdid the main.
Lighting is low, can be challenging for folks who lip read, i guess that's appropriate for romantic setting and give better view out the window see the lights of Colorado Springs.
Service is outstanding, all staff had great attitudes.
As always a wonderful dining experience with great food, attentive staff and perfect ambiance.
One of our go to places for special occasions. Great view of downtown Colorado Springs at night is the highlight here along with table side preparation of their famous Chutney Mango Pepper Steak and bananas foster or cherries jubilee.
For the steak lover, the best steak ever. Pricey, but worth the money. Great place for special occasions. Wait staff as professional as you would find in Europe.
We had a great experience at Pepper Tree, it was my husbands Bday dinner and it was fabulous!
The Pepper Tree restaurant is my absolute favorite restaurant in Colorado Springs. The food is exceptional. The steaks are so incredibly tender. The flavor of the steak entrees is outstanding. The sauces are marvelous. The tableside preparation is always a special treat, watching the skill of the preparers, and the coordination between the different preparers who step in to different steps in the process. The desserts are remarkable, and again, watching the tableside preparation of Bananas Foster is so enjoyable and the aroma is mouth-watering. I would recommend the Pepper Tree without reservation!!
The food is excellent, the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly, and the ambiance is unbeatable. A bit pricey, but the quality of food and the experience delivered is worth it. Definitely recommend! Will be back again.
We have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while now and our first visit was not a disappointment. The views over the city are amazing and just enhance a romantic dinner for two. There was some fantastic wine selections and we actually were able to get a bottle of wine that they had not yet put on the menu and was a great price and tasted wonderful. Service was top notch. Their specialty is the pepper steak and my wife loved it. I had a different cut that was equally delicious. It is expensive, but we do plan a return visit on special occasions.
Wanted to treat my wife to a special evening and it was our first visit to The Pepper Tree. It did not meet expectations, and we left disappointed and $150 lighter. Every course from appetizers to desert was only average and given those prices we'll likely never come back.
My steak was an uneven cut of meat, had some gristle and there were portions extremely under cooked. My wife had the veal Oscar and it was tough. With the 5 or so servers running around, yakking way trying to be witty and charming, no one took the time to ask us how our meal was- until we were half way through the main course. We had a corner table, and I also felt we did not receive timely service as opposed to other people who were seated after us. At least the company of my wife kept me in good spirits on an otherwise "let down" of an evening
Been dining here for several years and hands down this is the best steakhouse in Colorado Springs. The Pepper Steak and the Steak Diane are top notch, the wine list extensive, and the service impeccable! Note that Carrie recommended one of the best wines I have ever had and made our visit truly special for our anniversary!
