I was here ages ago and didn't recall it being memorable. When my Dad (fairly new to Colorado) wanted to go for a nice brunch to celebrate his 70th (and my daughters 10th), someone suggested this place to him. I reluctantly agreed to go with low expectations.
Reservations weren't the easiest to get for a party of 5. I was shooting for 11am but only 1pm was open. I did get a call that morning from the restaurant offering an earlier time. We happily accepted and went around 1130am.
Located in the Inverness Hotel, we walked into the lobby and they were doing fresh caramel apple slices with a toppings bar. Kids were sold right there.
Restaurant was nice. Service was spot on. They explained the layout of the buffet and off we all went.
I don't like using the word "buffet" to describe this restaurant as the word conjures up images of quick mass produced cheap quality food served in an atmosphere that makes you want to disinfect your hands. The Garden Terrace offerings in my opinion were carefully crafted, flavorful, high quality and unique. The atmosphere is classy yet comfortable. The live music was a nice touch.
Personal favorites from our table were the following. The eggs Benedict was a hit - the eggs yolk was runny and perfectly cooked. The prime rib had a delicious rub on it. I loved the cold beef salad with mint. I am normally not a dessert person but the offerings were perfect sized and tasty.
It is a pricy meal but we will definitely be back for special occasions as they pop up. Thanks for a nice birthday brunch.
