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.

We had a wonderful night of excellent food, good wine, prompt service, magical view and easy parking for my elderly mother. I have not been for years and was pleased to see the restaurant has maintained 0 their level of excellence.

Loved our meal here! The service is impeccable, bright spot in a sea of mediocre service in Colorado Springs.

Great ambiance, steaks and desserts cooked table-side. Would recommend the steak Diane and cherries jubilee. Pepper steak was good as well.

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.

The experience and workers were amazing! I simply didn’t read what I was ordering well enough to enjoy it fully but I liked the restaurant and will highly recommend it.

Excellent ambiance, amazing waitstaff, top-notch food. When making a reservation, request a seat by the windows

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.

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.
