  • Fair service and prime rib
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/17/2014
    We were there for a birthday celebration with relatives from out of town. They chose Elways because they had lobster tail on the menu. Lobster was very good. My steak was a tad over done as I asked for medium well. One of our party ordered the prime rib and was very unhappy with it. It was tough and too rare and plain inedible. Our party split the check between the couples and we told the waiter ahead of our ordering. When he delivered the check, it was all mixed up between the couples orders and we had to have it redone. A waiter should pay more attention to that.

    When I need a reliably excellent place for lunch, I always think of Elways. There were four of us and we ordered two Cherry Creek salads and one Mediterranean salad - all were excellent. The exception was the shrimp salad. It was lackluster in appearance and apparently tasteless. My guest asked for blue cheese dressing hoping that would help, but it didn't. I do recommend Elways and plan to return but certainly won't order the shrimp salad.

    Elway's did not let us down. Every time I go to a couple of other top steakhouses in the area I have to wait a crazy amount of time to be seated. That's with a reservation. Elway's sat us immediately. The food was amazing and service great! Perfect night!

    We read up on this restaurant before we booked it. A lot of the reviews said the service was poor. We took a chance and truly enjoyed it. The service was good and at no point did we feel ignored. One thing that could be improved is to have the wait staff ask if customers have questions on the menu. I did have to get our waitress's attention on that. Also, sides are enough for two people so they should make recommendations re: don't order au gratin potatoes and the twice baked, mix it up.

    My wife and I wanted to go somewhere special for our anniversary and chose Elway's. Reading the info on OpenTable, it said the dress code was "business casual". When we got to the restaurant, we were greeted by the hostess who proceeded to look my wife and me up and down as if to make sure what we were wearing was appropriate (and then seemed to disapprove). We were dressed per the dress code that we were given (if not better), yet from the beginning we felt like we weren't welcome. The wait staff wasn't as bad, but seemed to grow annoyed that we didn't want to sit down, immediately order our food, and be ushered out in record time. Food was amazing, and we made the best of the night regardless. However, we will most likely never go back.

    I finally book a table for my husband's birthday. I book a table 2 weeks in advance and request a table in a corner/quiet area, keep in mind this was a Thursday night. We show up on time and get seated immediately. Our table is a weird table for 4 people IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RESTAURANT. No intimacy whatsoever, the place is so loud we can barely hear each other. water is served in Mason jars. What???? The appetizer was calamari. Deep fried, nothing fancy about it, I've had better calamari in burger joints. The main course. You have to pay extra for the side, seriously?? I pay $40 for a steak and I can't even get a green bean with it? Overall very disappointed. Won't recommend or come back. Service was good. Lame $150 dinner

    After years of great service and great food this experience was an off one. We waited ten minutes past our reservation time, not a big deal. We were then seated right next to the kitchen door, great we'll get our food fast. But then our food arrived tepid, which for meat and potatoes is not a good temperature. The butter wouldn't even melt on the potatoes. Everyone has a bad day.

    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.

    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.

    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.
