    I took my husband to Shanahan's for his birthday. It was one of the best dining experiences that we have ever had and we eat out quite a bit. The waiter was courteous, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was delicious and the steaks were cooked the way that we requested. The wine complimented the meal. At the end of the meal, my husband was presented with a huge piece of chocolate cake with a candle on the top.

    From the moment we walked in, we were made to feel special. We were celebrating our anniversary and a birthday. Rose petals greeted us on our table, and all who passed wished us well. The wait staff was very attentive, and our waiter Ryan was fabulous. The food was outstanding, excellent steaks. Great wine list. A keeper.

    This was our first time at this restaurant. It didn't start off well. We had a 7:15 p.m. reservation but didn't get seated until 7:40 p.m.. We were offered a free drink/cocktail while waiting. Once seated everything improved. The service was great and the food was outstanding. We will definitely go back.

    We arrived at a table covered with red rose petals! What a lovely way to begin - the adjoining table wanted to join us! We were going to try something different but once again the steak won out! Everything was exceptional - the brussel sprouts, au gratin potatoes, French onion soup and, of course, the fabulous steak and lobster. Then to top it off, the chocolate cake (compliments of the house). Ahh, chocolate. Perfect.

    It was our first time there (my wife and I were celebrating 21 years wedding anniversary). When I was reserving our spot for dinner I mentioned that we have an anniversary. There were rose petals on the table! We shared a crab cake for appetizer and I had their famous Colorado Lamb Chops and my wife had the sea bass special that evening. Oh my! Both meals were exquisite. Not to talk of our server! She was incredible. She was kind, professional, and very timely. Also because it was our anniversary, they gave us a complimentary slice of their heavenly chocolate cake. When you want your spouse to feel special, take them to Shanahan's - they'll be talking about it for a long time. I am not kidding!

    Had steaks of course, both ribeye (22oz) and NY Strip, which were prepared perfectly and seasoned wonderfully. Oftentimes, even at high end steak houses, steaks are left relatively unseasoned and bland. These were excellent. The creamed spinach is also excellent. Service was extremely attentive and Adam was superb.

  • Best Prime Rib Anywhere!!
    Foodie
    Dined on 11/2/2014
    This is the best prime rib I've had anywhere and I grew up eating beef in the Midwest which is hard to beat. The $49 prix fixe Sunday evening dinner is a bargain. The 12 oz. prime rib is a very generous cut with little fat. We took leftovers home and I had a total of three meals from my entrée and my husband had two. Everything was exceptional.

    Shanahan's Steakhouse lives up to its name. We tried three different kinds of steaks and they each were absolutely delicious. Each steak was prepared as we requested. Suggestions by our server were perfect. The wine list is extensive. In fact the wine listings were listed in a 'book', with many pages to peruse. We were celebrating two birthdays and at the end of our meal, our server brought out two large servings of the most amazing cake. Our birthday guests felt very special and enjoyed the personalized birthday cards from Shanahan's. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

    Great service,nice room. My girlfriend's filet was perfect,my ribeye was tender but over seasoned. The sides were great but she made a mistake on one of them but we ate it anyway and she took it off the tab so I guess that made up for the salty steak.

    This was my girlfriend and mine first time dining at Shanahan's and it was awesome. Our server recommended a great wine to pair with our meal. The bone in fillet was mouth watering delicious and the skin on the trout simply melted in my mouth. The ambiance was laid back and would fit anything from mild to romantic. Over all a great time was had on our anniversary and we will definitely be dining here again!

    Shanahan's is one of my 2 favorite restaurants in Denver. Service for this business meal was EXCELLENT as usual. Noise levels were very high for our business discussions, and booking a private room was overly expensive. (Del Frisco's, the other favorite did not charge us for the private room we had there the previous night). Despite the noise, everyone enjoyed the food

So we admired their huge wine room and Broncos memorabilia til our table was ready. Dinner was delicious , made my wife try escargot for the first time and it was surprisingly good. They even decorated our table with rose petals and our waiter brought out a complimentary slice of raspberry chocolate cake for dessert Wich was really good.overall excellent dinner.

    We celebrated a special birthday here on a Friday night. A palpable energy, vibrant bar scene and friendly, highly competent staff greet you when you walk in. We were whisked to the booth near the fireplace (requested via our Open Table reserv). Bill, our waiter, was fantastic. Following perfectly made cocktails, we dined on Blue Point oysters, chilled Caeser salad (WITH optional fresh anchovies, natch), the signature bone-in filet, fabulous Colorado lamb chops and yummy sides, washed down with a lovely Pinot Noir. As always, portions were unbelievably generous, requiring take home boxes. We were absolutely, happily satiated, when Bill presented the hugest ever 'slice' of chocolate layer cake, rounding out a superb evening!!

    My 10 year old son tasted leftovers from my visit to Shanahans the night before with my friend. He exclaimed, "This is STEAK!?" There is nothing like the taste of their steaks. I've visited every steakhouse in the Denver area from downtown to Cherry Creek to the Tech Center. There is no better filet mignon for purists who like their plain steak. The service is impeccable. The timing is perfect: It's nice and well-paced when I'm with my girlfriend and much quicker when I'm with my son who wants to eat and go. The GM always stops by when I'm with my son. We visit when his teams wins a basketball championship so he knows congratulations are in order and never fails to get my shy boy talking. The food is consistently delicious. Worth it
