    Steaks were very tasty, wine selection was excellent (though pricey). My wife's New York strip steak had quite a bit of inedible gristle. Side dishes, while quite flavorful, were way overpriced for their size. (Our waiter suggested we split two sides, which we did, but they really were not that big). As a "special occasion" dining experience (anniversary), this one was good but not great (great was our expectation; $200 total bill seemed a lot for a moderately good meal.)

    We came here to celebrate my birthday, after seeing a show at the Pepsi Center. We had never had dinner in the dining room, and didn't know what to expect. Everything was outstanding. Our two wait staff were so nice, and the food was excellent. We shared a salad, the walleye fish and chips, and a filet mignon, with an order of creamed spinach. The ambience in the dining room was romantic and comfortable. Thank you for a perfect evening.

    Our niece and her boyfriend were engaged on Saturday and we took them to Elway's the next Thursday to celebrate. Our experience was great, very friendly staff, and Kevin our waiter was pleasant and knowledgable. He had menu and drink recommendations that were right on, and was very attentive to our needs as the evening progressed. We all had a great time, and recommend Elway's in Cherry Creek.

    Had to get a reservation a little later than we liked but it was wonderful. From out of town so we don't get to dine here often but it was as remembered. Food and service were great. I have been to many fine food places around the Denver Metro area and still our favorite. Just need to meet John there sometime.

    My wife and I went for our anniversary. The food was absolutely delicious. The filet was very tender and cooked as requested. My wife had the halibut with crab cake. Both were done perfectly and served with a tomato based sauce. We shared the brussel sprout hash and it was excellent.

    Food was very good as usual but the experience was just not there. Servers were indifferent. We were seated next to the noisy bar and requested a different table. We were then moved next to a screaming baby even though there were numerous other open tables. I had also let Open Table know it was our anniversary when I made the reservation but that was not acknowledged.

Our servers were Julianna and Ray. I truly loved how attentive Ray was to our needs as well as being well informed on the food. And the food was excellent! We will be dining there again. Thanks so much for an excellent experience.

    I took my wife for our 10th anniversary and wished I'd chosen a different restaurant. The atmosphere was the best thing about the dinner. We had the roasted artichoke and calamari for appetizers. The artichoke was good but the calamari was just average run of the mill calamari that you can get at your local bar and grill. Nothing special. For dinner, I had the 22oz Rib-eye and it was the worst steak I've had in a long time. Absolutely no flavor. My wife ordered the filet which was better than mine but not much. We had sides of corn and french fries. Both OK. The best part of the whole meal was the dessert they gave us for our special night. The total cost: $280. For that amount, I would rather go to Outback 4 times! Eat at your own risk.

    This is the fourth year in a row we’ve gone to Elway’s for our anniversary (we moved to Denver in 2011). Once again, the food and service were terrific. Unfortunately, it was a Friday and the restaurant was hosting a dinner for a major PGA golf tournament, which meant that there was a wait (even with reservations) and considerably more noise than we have experienced on previous visits. Dinner itself was nice and leisurely – no pressure to eat and leave, which we appreciated. Even with the noise and crowd, we still look forward to spending next anniversary at Elway’s.

    Elway's rings the bell again. It was a 5-star experience from our arrival at the valet to our last bite of the sumptuous desserts. #7's flagship restaurant has never disappointed us in the 7+ years we have been dining there. Whether we are celebrating a milestone, an accomplishment, or entertaining out-of-town guests, Elway's Cherry Creek has never fumbled. Truly, the most consistently excellent food and service experience in Denver!

    4 of us from work celebrated meeting a huge deadline with Elway's on a Wednesday afternoon. The staff was friendly and helpful. I ate way too much but every bite was worth it! If you only have an hour for lunch, you may not make it back in time. However, I'll take slower service for great food that comes out hot and correct. The Peach Salad and the Banana Pudding was most delicious! I hope to be coming back soon for evening dining.

    Brandi was our server and she is so professional. We moved away from Denver just 3 Months ago and we are missing Denver so came back and Elways was top on our list before we headed back to Nashville. We always get the short ribs and Brussel sprouts-our favorite entree. The blueberry bread pudding with lemon ice cream-yummy!

    I had the 16 oz. NY strip cooked medium. The steak was cooked medium however the outside was so charred that it tasted terrible. All I could taste was burnt seasonings. I have had better steaks for $10 at a bar and grill. For the price of the food and the quality I would not recommend it. I will definitely not be returning.

    Elways is not a place to which I would take children. It has an adult atmosphere and an adult menu selection. Because it is fairly pricey (easy to spend close to $100/person) I would consider Elways a "special occasion" restaurant and not a restaurant I would choose on the spur of the moment because I had a long day at work. The food was tasty and there were some unique items on the menu, but in the end, it is a "steak place" serving good steaks. The service was quite good - waiters were not intrusive, but were available and solicitous of customers.

    This was the worst service we have ever received at what was classified as an upscale restaurant. We were not seated until 20 min after our reservation. The attitude of everyone from the greeters, waiter and food server was extremely poor. It was an hour before we even had our salads. Another hour before entree. The food was OK but not great, the steaks were coojed as ordered the rare one did have too much burnt char to the point of being black in spots. I will stick with places like Ruth Chris where the service is 100x better in the future. This is not an upscale restaurant but has the prices of one.

    Restaurant Week in Denver prompted us to revisit Elway's. Our memory served us well. The food was fabulous. We started with the crunchy coconut shrimp, salad and delicious charred red pepper soup and enjoyed the perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked sirloin steaks with creamy mashed potatoes and broccoli with an extra side of green beans. The sweet treat at the end was an upscale homemade DingDong. We had a most enjoyable and delicious dining experience. We are planning to return this week to celebrate with our son's new University of Denver college roommate and his parents as an introduction to Denver!
