Classic elegant ambiance, but the food was an over reach at gourmet/fusion, which never quite made it where the chef may have intended. The textures where fabulous, and some of the garnishes very tasty, but the overall taste of the main courses left much to be desired. The portions were also un-Coloradan. We've eaten in some wonderful places in L.A.,... More

The food was good enough, but unbelievably small. The steak was a whole four ounces. Fill up on bread!

Dinner in the early evening. Server was excellent. Elegant look and feel. Quiet dining experience. Very nice menu choices. Wine list is expansive but on the pricey side. The salmon and ribeye choices were excellent, presentation was very creative, but the portion size was modest. Both were well seasoned. I would say both choices were on the pricey side for... More

In a word, horrible. We arrived 5 minutes late for a 5pm reservation for 3 and still had to wait 10 minutes to be seated in an almost empty restaurant. Since this was Christmas dinner our only dinner option was vegetarian or not. No other choices permitted at the Arms on Christmas. I chose the vegetarian. The soup was lukewarm... More

This restaurant should be ashamed. We ate at the restaurant last night, Christmas Eve. The cost per person $135 plus wine, and any extra's. This had to be the worst meal I have ever experienced. There was no regular menu. The menu was much like a New Years Eve menu. They had a tasting menu, if you could call it... More

We have looked forward to our tradition of celebrating our anniversaries at the Palace Arms for the past 17 years. No more!!! Last Tuesday we had dinner there and were surprised that there was only one occupied table other than ours.The usual professionally prepared Caesar Salad at tableside ($20) was absent. Instead, a bowl of lettuce was placed in the... More

The Brown Palace is our very favorite Historic Hotel and a visit there is never complete without at least one visit to the Palace Arms. Imagine our disappointment when we visited on our first evening at the hotel, only to find that in this historic icon, there is absolutelty no traditIon maintained in menu selections. I very much understand the... More

This was a five course meal. Lobster and apple first course. Great. Scallop and corn chowder number two. Wow. Third was short rib, best course. Turkey forth. Good stuff. Apple tart course five, but I was too full!

I have never ranked a restaurant so low. My family traveled from all parts of the USA to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday at her beloved Brown Palace in Denver. Our family is well travelled and quite knowledgeable about food quality. We had a private dining room. The service was fine. The food was cold, dry and especially un-appetizing. The... More
