Outstanding tasting menu and wine pairing experience! The new chef here has been trained in some amazing restaurants (French Laundry being one), and his experience and creativity did not disappoint. We have eaten at several Michelin-rated restaurants around the US, and we found the tasting menu (5 course) to be exquisite both in taste and presentation. The service was excellent as well- very attentive but not annoying or too present. This restaurant has three Sommeliers (and they aren't all men!) who know their wine and paired excellent wines from around the world with our menu. I really don't have any drawbacks from our experience, and our expectations were both met and surpassed. Worth a visit!
It was nice but really overpriced. We had a good time and had good service.
Went late on a week night and it was very quiet. Service was great and the food was delicious. I got the salmon and brussel sprouts and enjoyed every bite!
As always, the food was amazing. However, the service was absolutely horrible. We were on time for our reservation at 7:15 but no tables were available. Once seated, it took almost an hour for our cocktails and appetizers to arrive and that was only after we flagged someone down.
The Summit was over capacity and the staff was strained. We’ve been going to this restaurant for over 10 years and this is the first time we’ve ever left disappointed with our experience.
We recently had the pleasure of dining at the Summit. The food was exceptional, the wine better and the service very good too. I also love the contemporary decor at the Summit. We started with fresh oysters which were delicious and came with all the appropriate sauces! Then the lobster ravioli, delicious. The Dover sole was very, very good. All in all, a very nice evening. One more thing, the Som is very friendly, approachable and knows her wine-take advantage of the free advice:-)
Duxbury Bay oysters were as good or better than any we've had. Confited pork and dover sole were outstanding. Grapefruit and pistachio cake was a work of art. Overall, far better food than on any of our previous visits. Noise level was moderate, but when busier it can be loud.
Summit at The Broadmoor is excellent. The menu is creative, food is fantastic, and the service is top- notch. We've enjoyed many meals here and have never been disappointed. This is a great spot for an evening out with friends, a business dinner, quiet dinner with a spouse, or a more relaxed meal at the bar. The mussels are a favorite of ours. Enjoy.
Overall it was a great experience. The food was great and unique, the cocktails were fantastic, and the overall aesthetics of the restaurant were great. The only bad part about this experience was our server. Dinner took us 2 hours to get through simply because our server ignored us.
I understand that sometimes servers get busy with other tables, but that was not the case for her since we were one of only three tables in her section. It took her 15-20 minutes just to come get our drink order, she then rushed us to give her our food order and then we didn't see her again till she asked us if we wanted dessert. And unfortunately, due to the mandatory 20% tip (included in the check), I was not able to show my dissatisfaction with her performance through her tip.
But other than the bad service we experienced, this is a quiet and nice place to have a meal.
Generally the Broadmoor surpasses expectations, and we have dined at the Summit before and had a positive experience. We came this time to celebrate our 15th anniversary. The service and ambience were nice. However, I was served a dinner that the wait staff recommended, that I really did not like. The fish was tasteless and I did not at all like the sauce that accompanied it. I asked if I could change my entree. The waiter was very apologetic and promptly brought me another meal. However, afterward we realized we had been charged $20 for the meal I had returned. I am used to exceptional service at the Broadmoor but was very disappointed to be treated this way, and will most likely not return to the Summit.
A little disappointed. Didn’t seem to have our reservation. It was my husbands birthday and I had noted that ahead of time but they didn’t seem to remember. Had to remind them. Service was “ok” but whole evening didn’t feel like anything special. We love the Broadmoor and have dined at The Summit on special occasions before but may skip The Summit next time.
