Me too! – I just read a review for my favorite lunch spot, Ellyngtons. I did not realize they had a new chef but I assumed something was up because the food has gotten real good. I've spent the last 17 years eating lunch in downtown Denver and find Ellyngtons to be very convienent and as of late very, very good and the food is interesting. I have also tried the tuna melt and it is awesome but my partner had the halibut with corn pudding yesterday and I swear I almost ordered a second lunch. If you havent tried this place for lunch, you are seriously missing out. Kudos to the chef, you have a real good thing going on there. My only criticism would be the decor, it defintaly needs an update, but the food is so good it doesnt steer me or anyone in our law firm away. Keep up the good work.
They got a new chef and it appears he knows what is going on in the Culinary World..Highly reccomend for both lunch and breakfast – So I have been going to the BP for years as I work downtown, I usually take clients for a quick lunch at Ellyngtons or The Tavern and it was always good. The food at Ellyngtons has progressively gotten better over the last few months and I have began to pay attention. I had an incredible fish dish last week and then last Friday I came to the conclusion that I had never tasted anything so wonderful and had to know what was going on in that kitchen. Turns out they hired this new chef of world class reputation, he has worked at top restaurants all over the country. He has just made my # 1 list for places to dine downtown, or anywhere in Denver...I had a tuna melt that was seriously the best thing I have ever eaten. The very educated and amazingly proficient waiter explained that the chef poaches fresh tuna in olive oil... Have you ever heard of that?? I reccomend it highly and think if you havent tried Ellyngtons for lunch, you are absolutely missing out. I hope the BP can hold on to this guy, they have a seriously good thing in him.
Diners sup on elegant brunches and lunches in the swanky Brown Palace Hotel. – In Short
Tuxedoed hosts greet guests at the door and usher them to their tables. The large, bright dining room is decorated in tones of gold, brown and red, which lends an air of Old-World sophistication. Best known for its pricey Sunday brunch, the restaurant features a massive buffet ranging from decadent cheese blintzes to build-your-own omelettes. Creative entree options include veal nicoise and grilled pheasant. Eggs Benedict or apple-cinnamon crepes are available for weekday breakfasts.
Probably the finest place in Denver – The best dining experience I've ever had was at Ellyngton's. We were seated promptly by the nicest little man, and then greeted by our server with enthusiasum. Not "I'm going to make money" enthusiasum, but genuine. He gracefully explained the specials (which sold me!) and had our orders out to us in a timely manner. Never did we have to ask for more beverages or anything at all. He offered beautiful tray of desserts at the end. They were on top of it. I loved it and will be back many, many times.
I was disappointed – We had a party of ten for lunch. Bothe of the Kobe burgers that were ordered were overcooked, one person sent it back. The burgers sort or resembled hockey pucks when they first arrived. the burger that was sent back took about 20-25 minutes to come back. The other person had to go to a meeting and ate hers very well done, muh to her disappointment. Maybe we came on a bad day?
Valentine's fiasco – Party of 8 of us went to Ellyngton's for Valentine's dinner. The the waiter took almost 40 minutes to take our drink order. He forgot my husbands drink and tended to leave us hanging for most of our simple requests. For the "Best Hotel in Denver" the Brown Palace and it's eating establishments should be held to a higher standard. It is sad to say they no longer deserve the praise heaped upon them. When we turned in our evaluation cards the people at the front desk seemed bored/uninterested in reading them. The manager did apologize so that helped somewhat...Too bad we won't get our money back. I truely cannot believe how bad it was. I will NEVER waste my time or money at Ellyngton's again.
