The environment at Peppertree was unlike anything else! It was the best food ever as well.

This is our go-to place fo special occasions. Everything is wonderful. The pepper steak is to die for and the cherries jubilee is out of this world. They have an extensive wine list and can recommend something to go with any of their entrees. It’s a bit on the pricy side but it’s well worth it for a special occasion. There’s two bucks that hang out by the restaurant. Here’s one of them.

Expensive, but high quality. Some of the richest and creamiest lobster bisque I've ever had. Steak Diane: filet flambéd tableside that was so tender you could cut it with the side of your fork, and bananas foster cooked tableside that was incredibly yummy! Excellent and attentive service. Good view overlooking the city. Small, cozy ambience.

Second time celebrating our anniversary at The Peppertree. First time was in 2005. Over fifteen years later happy to report that this restaurant still delivers on service and delicious food. Our reservation was at 5:15 pm and the parking lot was full. Needless to say you need to make a reservation! Despite the staff being busy there was not a moment that we felt neglected.

The food was excellent. I started with the shrimp cocktail and my husband had the “special” lobster cocktail served over melon. He let me sample his and it was so good. For entrees I had the steak Oscar. Really tender, flavorful filet, and the crab on top was delicious. Served with asparagus and a baked potato. My husband had the halibut special served with rice.

The desserts sounded wonderful but we were to full to splurge. They did give a complimentary scoop of ice cream to share which was just enough.

If your celebrating a special occasion or want to impress someone special highly recommend this place.

I have dined here many times before; however, my birthday experience last night was not as personable as previous visits, in fact, it wasn't even acknowledged unlike the couple in front of us who received a candle for their special occasion.

Nice view of the city since it sits on a hill. The wait staff was generally attentive. The food quality was very good, but be prepared to pay the price. Dinner for 2 will cost you $200 if you have drinks. Not sure if it's worth all that, but the food quality is very good.

We had every single wait staff in the restaurant come check on us which wasn’t very personal. We asked for a second round of bread which was never brought at it was 5:00 and they weren’t even busy. The steaks kept cooking because or main plate with our sides wasn’t ready. The chef placed my rare steak Diane on my husbands plate and I got his medium rare steak Diane. This is usually our go to steak house but this experience was by far sub par.

Highly recommend! My partner and I are repeat customers, and I love to bring my friends for a classy night out! The food and service is phenomenal. And the ambiance is unmatched in town. I always recommend coming near sunset and then enjoying the Colorado Springs downtown skyline. Every seat is a great seat, but pro tip, always ask if there’s openings by the window. It’s a fabulous view!

Delicious lobster tail, filet mignon, and wild rice. My boyfriend had the bison steak which he liked. We shared the cheesecake with raspberry sauce. Beautiful views.

This restaurant is a national treasure. The staff is friendly, talented and attentive. Cooking with fire and the finest ingredients brings a quality of care to the entire experience that would be hard to match in the traditional restaurant where the chef has no connection to the diners and the waiters have little connection/involvement with the food they are serving. Pepper Tree has a magical recipe for excellence and joy, combined with the best view of the city.

This place has been in business for 40 years, and it shows... in a bad way. The decor was old and clearly hasn't been updated in YEARS! The food was disappointing for the price. I ordered the beef wellington and it was WAY over cooked. I had high hopes and overall it was just blah.
