    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    I made reservations for my boyfriends birthday,for 5:00.When we arrived we were told that we needed to sit in the bar until they could seat us because they were not seating for supper until 5:00. At 15 after 5 they brought us in(to a gorgeous table with a fantastic view of Denver, that I had asked for).Although the view and table were great,why did I make a reservation for 5 if we could not be seated at 5? Other tables were already seated and being served food by this time. Weird. When I made the reservation I made a special note that it was his birthday, but our waiter had no idea. Our waitress was friendly and nice enough but,we ate our entire appetizer without beverages and many of the tables were not serveddrink

    My compliments to the Chef my wife's porterhouse steak was cooked perfectly to her liking, she can't stop talking about how terrific it tasted and how well it was cooked. My porterhouse steak was cooked perfectly as well. We loved the seating arraignment for our 21st wedding anniversary. Thank You So Much, dining at Simms’s Steakhouse was a great experience and a great atmosphere. We would definitely go back, solely because the service by the staff was terrific. And the complementary Custer desert for our anniversary was delicious thank you.

    A GREAT dinner. The chopped salad and french onion soup were excellent. We both had prime rib for dinner which was full of flavor. Their prices on bottles of wine are some of the best I've ever seen. Our server Josh said he'd been their for years and he had good recommendations. We'll be back for sure.

    Enjoyed the newly redecorated interior and the brunch was very good. The waitstaff was a work in progress but one could tell they had received some fine dining training. Considering the price I think they should include one cocktail with the meal. The food selection was good and seemed to be of high quality. The only thing missing was a cheese and crackers selection which would have topped the brunch off perfectly. All in all I would recommend this brunch to my friends.

    Dined on 9/2/2009
    We were celebrating an anniversary and let the server know this was a special occasion for us. Drinks, appetizer, and salads came fairly quickly. But after the salads, we waited an hour for our entrees. This was very upsetting considering we had an infant with us. Our server did not check back with us to let us know what was taking so long. When we complained to the manager, he apologized profusely but did nothing except to tell us that we could expect excellent service next time we dined there. In addition, the 2 people who had ordered fish felt that it was overdone and not that great. We will not return to this restaurant.

Steaks were great, salads impressive. The Appetizer list is a little narrow, but overall... Great improvements!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 8/17/2009
    The food at Simms was fantastic. Everything was great, except the dishes were cold when they came out, which calls into question what the wait-staff were doing when the food was hot and ready. We sent it back to be re-heated. And be careful about ordering the "Surf & Turf Special". It sounds like a bargain, but you are actually ordering two entrees and you pay for both, with only a slight discount off the second. For my wife's birthday they gave us a gratis creme brulee dessert, which was great.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 8/15/2009
    I have been going to Simms Landing, the seafood restaurant before it became the steak restaurant, for over 15 years. I liked the change, however, I do miss the fish tanks! The presentation was nice and the food was good. I had the fillet. I would recommend. I thought the service was good except our waitress was very young and did not know a thing about certain wines and some of the food choices. When I go to a nice steak restaurant, I certainly expect my server to have knowledge about the wine. The waitress also had on a too tight, too short, skirt that was bothering her and she kept pulling on it so it wouldn't creep up. I found that to be extremely unprofessional.

    The restaurant did have great view of the city, although there were some trees which obstructed the view which was unfortunate. We also had requested a quiet table for two, the restaurant was quite noisy even though it was not at full capacity. The food was okay. The service was okay although they did bring out the wrong appetizer. It was just OK experience.

    I think they did a great job with the "new look". The deco is very fresh and modern but not over the top. Their outdoor patio was very nicely done as well, great place to eat outside or catch happy hour. The service was very good and attentive. As for the food, some of the dishes we tried were very good and some were so, so. However, I would definitely visit again.

    The dinner was tasty and the view was beautiful. The only issue I had was the meal felt rushed. Our bread came out immediately and we weren't even done with our bread when our salads came. I felt like they wanted to get us out of there as quickly as possible. It wasn't crowded so I'm not sure why rushing us was necessary. The whole meal took an hour which is the amount of time a meal takes at a chain restaraunt. This is not what I expected from Simms Steakhouse.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 7/31/2009
    The food we ordered at Simm's Steakhouse was perfectly cooked and delicious. That said, this restaurant definitely caters to a crowd that does not include families. Due to the lack of a changing table in the bathroom, I needed to change my daughter on the floor, which is completely unacceptable. Upon speaking with the hostess, we were told that they did not have a changing table and we could use the narrow shelf along the wall (which was the same width as the baby and dangerous). I was told that the suggestion of a changing table was passed along to the manager, although he never came over to acknowledge it. We will not return.

  • Simms Steakhouse was overall
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 7/3/2009
    Simms Steakhouse was overall an excellent experience. The only negative comments I might add is that our tables were too close, so that I could pick up on other diner's conversations and I'm sure they could hear mine. I was also very unimpressed with the bar staff. I ordered a drink for myself and for my husband (while my husband was outside on a business call), the bartender gave my husband's drink to me and held mine behind the bar. Easy mistake, however, once I asked him if he could exchange the drinks he explained to me the laws that they must follow and totally ignored the fact that all I wanted was "my" drink. Otherwise, the wait staff was wonderful and the view was spectacular. I would dine at Simms Steakhouse again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 7/3/2009
    Simms Steakhouse experience was not the same experience we received 2 years ago at Simms Landing. Quality of food was good, but not great. Service was well down. We did not receive a choice of bread item that we saw offered to several other tables. Mixed drinks were mixed up and had to be changed. Our waiter was hard to hear and understand - he was a nice young man, but believe he should have been a little more experienced. Just not the quality that we had had before at our previous visit. Since we traveled over 750 miles to specifically come to this restaurant, we were not pleased and probably would try something else with our next visit to the Denver area.
