    The service and food were wonderful. We read from others that they enforced a dress code that included women wearing long sleeves and long dress or trousers. They seemed not to care. Men wearing shorts, ball caps and women in VERY casual dress. Would recommend.

    Wonderful meal as always! Started with the burrata, which was delicious. Served with fresh peaches and tomatoes, delightful! Had the agnolotti and shrimp scampi, which were both wonderful. Ended with flourless chocolate cake and chocolate truffles. Lovely food and evening!

    We were somewhat rushed to get to the theater and the Server an staff accommodated our time constraints with efficiency, panache and great manners! The food was about as good as I have had anywhere ( and that is not inconsiderable) and the Wine List is absolutely one of the best I’ve ever encountered with a lot of very reasonably priced wines and some incredibly hard to find bottles and vintages, though they were priced appropriately.

    We ate at three different restaurants in the Brown Palace: Ship’s Tavern, Palace Arms, and Ellington’s. By far, Palace Arms, which we selected for our anniversary dinner, was the most disappointing. We started the evening with the server informing us that she was the only server on staff for the evening after waiting 10 minutes for her to come by. A gentleman came by with bread and water and I asked him what they were to which he replied “bread”. I asked him what the spreads were and he did not know what they were either. We did some tasting and discovered that one loaf was cranberry filled and one was white, and the spreads were chive butter and strawberry preserves. For starters, we had the raviolo, which was flavorless and soup like, and the tomato soup, which was good, but not $18 good. For the entree, my husband got the halibut, which he described as good, but again for over $50 for the meal, good does not cut it. I got scampi with lobster and crab. The noodles were undercooked and clumped together, while the crab was over cooked. Dessert was prettier than it actually tasted and again, disappointing. For what was supposed to be fine dining, our experience was confusing. We had a better overall experience dining in the pub than in Palace Arms.

    Brown Palace has always been the standard bearer for fine dining in Denver. The past couple years have been very disappointing in terms of quality. Service and ambiance remain high - menu and quality have diminished over the years.

    I had the fresh halibut with the most divine asparagus and artichoke sauce. While I could not identify all of the ingredients, it was complex and paired with the fish perfectly. What a perfect setting for a date night, especially when staying at the Brown Palace.

    Pining for the days of yore. We gave the Palace Arms a chance after a couple years of COVID and ownership changes. Suggest keep working it people… Ambiance is fantastic Service was a bit awkward with an ever present server on their 4th day saying “everything was good “… However the ebullient sommelier was as fun as she was informative. Food - Mushroom Bisque was too starched and too salty. The seabass was pan seared perfectly however the crab cake was over salted, as was the base. I would have returned the plates were it not for being lost in love in celebratory moment with my wife - we got married at The Brown Palace 8 years ago and had an awesome experience. P.S. Bring back the starched linens and consider enforcing a dress code…
