About Summit - The Broadmoor
Designed by acclaimed designer Adam D. Tihany, Summit's contemporary design is inspired by the grandeur of Pike's Peak and provides a stunning counterpoint to the classic elegance of The Broadmoor. Wood, metal, glass, leather and fabrics are used throughout the dining room to evoke a modern, yet natural feel suited perfectly to Summit's bold French Bistro menu and innovative wine and cocktail program.
It all starts with the finest American ingredients and produce found seasonally around the country, which is combined with classical cooking techniques. Whether it's Colorado corn in September, Nantucket Bay scallops in November, or heirloom tomatoes from the heartland in the summer, Summit's stellar menu of year-round favorites and ever-evolving seasonal selections finds strength in a vibrant nationwide network of top-shelf vendors that provide the kitchen with the best possible ingredients.

Summit - The Broadmoor Ratings and Reviews
I always eat at The Summit when I am staying at The Broadmoor, it is the best restaurant at The Broadmoor! Local ingredients combined with an imaginative chef makes for excellent food. My latest dinner included Gnocchi Parisienne as an appetizer which were not made with potato but pate choux in a sage cream sauce that melt in your mouth leaving me wanting more! The service is always excellent and not at all stuffy and the staff are extremely knowledgeable about the menu.
My server was rude! He made slick rude comments I guess he assumed I couldn’t afford my meal! I took it as me being black, when I made the reservation I mentioned it was my birthday and he didn’t do anything at all Which was also disappointing. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant due to the fact I was treated wrong, and my birthday was ignored.
The food was wonderful! My husband had the "angry trout" which included the head and tail. He said it was delicious! I had the Colorado Bass which was very light and delicious.
The service was terrific and the ambience was lovely, it looked like a building that Frank Lloyd Wright designed.
Overall, a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it.
This is a very pleasant restaurant. The food was delicious but the menu is quite limited. As with everywhere at the Broadmoor, the staff was incredibly attentive to our needs. We were there part of a special weekend for our family (all adults). It seemed several couples were there for a more romantic event and it would be appropriate for a serious date or anniversary.
Although I am giving them a overall good review, I have one gripe with the bill at the end. We have been to the Summit several times for special and casual dinners. We were celebrating our 1 year anniversary and they had a seasonal appetizer I wanted to try. Potato Gnocchi in a Ricotta and truffle mix. The menu has 1 price for all appetizers - $12 or $14 a peice, I cant fully remember. I order the seasonal appetizer and enjoy the 7-10 gnocchis they give. Once the bill comes around, my wife shows me the bill in which the appetizer cost me $35.00. Although I am generally cost sensitive (I got the delicious chicken meal) I was not purposefully being cautious on this meal. When an appetizer costs $8 more than my dinner, I should have known about it. In hindsight, I get the idea that if something has no cost listed and you have to ask - you cant afford it etc. Or the fact that it had truffles is a hint to me now going forward. My gripe is that the waitress didn't let me know it was 2.5 X all the other appetizers when I ordered it.
Overall I give them 3 stars (good for what it is) but this instance makes me standoffish and makes them seem shady and hungry for my money.
We have dined at Summit in the past however, our most recent experience may be our last. Two years ago, we were greeted by an enthusiastic staff, from the very beginning through to the end. This time was a very different story. Arriving 25 minutes early for our reservation, we waited 20 minutes beyond the reservation time, which seemed surprising for a Thursday evening with no wait list. Once seated, we asked our server for food and wine recommendations. In the past, we were presented with a select set of menu items and, once we made our food decisions, the resident sommelier stopped by with their preferred wine choices based on our appetizer and entrees. In stark contrast, the response we received was, "Well, they are all so different!" and the wine recommendations fell short. We would have been eager to order another glass of wine half way through our dinner, but our server was too preoccupied with the only remaining table in the restaurant to notice our glasses were empty and we had to flag them down to request a refill. Overall, it seems the service at The Broadmoor has declined sharply with the addition of a 20% service charge to all food and beverage purchases. This was evident in nearly all of our dining experiences (save our breakfast at Ristoriante del Lago) and we are now questioning whether or not to return for our yearly anniversary stay for this coming December.
