  • "We brought out of town guests to dine at Shanahans. Terrific experience from the food to the atmosphere to outstanding service. Nice to show folks from Indy, our Super Bowl trophies!"

  • "A very busy evening, but the service was outstanding and food was hot and delicious. The place was packed but our table of six had no problem visiting - much appreciated by our group of 70's. The restaurant upheld it's 2013 5280 Best Restaurant Award."

  • "When making reservations, I mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary. When we arrived, we were escorted to a beautiful table that was covered with red rose petals. Very romantic. Throughout the dinner, we were greeted with "happy anniversary" welcomes....not overdone, but it was obvious everyone was made aware. We requested to "slow down" our dinner so we could enjoy a relaxing evening sipping on wine and conversation. The calamari was delicious and plentiful, steak cooked as requested, and a decadent dessert topped off the evening. The entire staff was very attentive from topping off our wine glasses to personally serving the sides. Always friendly and seemingly enjoying what they do. They made our evening very special!"

  • "Tried Shanahan's for first time during this promotion - meal consisted of salad, 5 oz filet mignon streak with mashed potatoes and asparagus, and desert - all dishes were all prepared well and tasted Great - $10 glass of wine complimented the meal - the Superbowl trophies and ring displays were neat to see - I would definitely recommend checking out this restaurant during Restaurant Week Promotion. Taylor our server did a Great job of making us feel welcomed. I was advised Mike even stops by and greets guests occasionally."

  • "A party of four dined at Shanahan's for the first night of Restaurant week(formerly 5280). The Prix Fix menu included a large salad, choice of Salmon or Filet and Chocolate Mousse. There were also $10 Wines available by the glass. The steaks were melt in your mouth delicious and tender, the Salmon was perfectly prepared and the dessert was the perfect touch to a great dinner."

  • "This was my first time at Shanahan's as I went during 5280 restaurant week. I will say the food was excellent but the side dish ortions were small. Three of us shared the garlic mashed potatoes which ended up being a tablespoon each. Again very good but still. Went to Elway's too for 5280 restaurant week at Cherry Creek and they pretty much had the same menu. I ordered the potatoes and it came in the same dish as Shanahan's but there was no splitting. My daughter who went with received her own mashed potatoes. It is enough potayooes to last for three days. Both places had excellent food and great service. One more thing. The wine list at Shanahan's is huge!!"

  • "Shanahan's Steakhouse has a great reputation for good reason. They make everything, from service to food, just right. A great experience when the experience matters."

  • "We were celebrating and this was a great place to do that. The food was awesome, the steak was "like butter". Fun and energetic place to dine"
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "We decided to try Shanahan's for the first time during restaurant week, and we were floored by how good EVERYTHING was. The steaks were well seasoned and cooked perfectly. The service was impeccable - our waiter was helpful and there whenever we needed him, but was not hovering or interrupting when we didn't. The restaurant week deal is a steal here, but we would not hesitate to choose Shanahan's at other times for any kind of special occasion. This place truly is the best of the best."

  • "The food was outstanding. We will look forward to going back."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "We happened to go during restaurant week. The options under 'the deal' were a bit limited but appropriate. The sides and salad were all obviously cut back. However, the food was great as always and I didn't leave feeling stuffed or uncomfortable. It was a nice night to finish off a drink outside too. That is a great set up."

  • "Finally made it to Shanahan's for dinner. Lucky for us it was during restaurant week so it was a little less expensive if you stuck to the special menu. Our group indulged in a few extras and enjoy everything. We had the Salmon and filet both cooked to perfection, as were the other items asparagus and potatoes. They had Ciroc Vodka so the martini's were wonderful. We would definitely go back the food and service were the best. A very enjoyable night out."

  • "I'd been so looking forward to dinner on the Patio with great music from Phunkaphino. The music was great, as I had expected. The dining experience was not. I consider Shannie's to be a favorite spot. Imagine my surprise when I found the service on Friday evening to be sub-par. Something went terribly wrong. 45 minutes to receive my first of only 2 drinks. Dinner's arrival took nearly 2 hours, poorly served, and poorly executed on every level. I think that he young lady assigned to our table must have been brand new, and obviously alone, left to handle what appeared to be an entire section on her own. Where was Mark? His obvious absence was reflected throughout the house - it was chaotic. I know you can do better."

  • "We had a good time at the last concert series 8/22/14. Weather was great. Good crowd. Service was a little slower than normal. We had reservations inside from making them earlier in the week, expressed interest in seating outside, front desk said they would possibly see about seating us outside, but it was pretty booked. They called us two days prior and said no chance of seating outside. We kept reservations anyway. We arrived for our reservations and said a spot opened on patio and would we like to accept. It was nice they kept our note about patio in the computer system. KUDOS!"

  • "Shananhan's is a special event place for our family (i.e. its not in the price range we normally dine at), so we expect a lot. When you pay $50 for a steak it should be perfect and melt in your mouth. I found the food only "average" on this visit, at prices that dictated much more. Our waitress Tirza was great, but the other staff we encountered had attitudes that reeked of: you're so lucky to be here! In sum, will not be going back any time soon."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "So so restaurant. Yesterday's salad. The greens were limp and unappetizing. The asparagus was over cooked. We both ordered fish, which was good and tasty, but my halibut came with large chunks of green olives that weren't very appealing and didn't add to the dish. Their signature cake was dry and unremarkable. All lin all, way over priced for what they delivered. On a Wednesday night, it was crowded and rather noisy."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "Given the price, the food was not worth it. First the steak was over cooked; wild mushroom side did not have any wild mushrooms, it was 100% button mushrooms that were over seasoned and undercooked; and, the truffle Mac with lobster the pasta was over cooked and there was no hint of truffles. The steak was served on a plate so over hested that my medium rare porter house steak kept cooking and medium by the tine i was finished. The server was nice but inexperienced. I ordered a pilsner beer and was brought a glass of wine. When I got the bill they charged me for both the beer and wine. This is a restaurant that trys to seem polished and upscale but does not have the maturity or depth to pull it off. I will not return or recommend."

  • "The company I work for provided me with an opportunity to dine anywhere in town I wanted to for my 35th anniversary. We chose Shanahan's! We had gone there before for Restaurant Week and greatly enjoyed the food, service and ambience so we came back again to see if we'd enjoy it a second time. We had a wonderful night and experience and would go back again."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "The restaurant atmosphere is comfortable and the tables are nicely spaced from each other so quiet conversation is possible. The overhead music could be turned down, or better yet, turned off. The sweet potato fries are outstanding and the steak is sizzling and delicious. This is a good restaurant for a birthday dinner. The restaurant could be more elegant with the removal of all the televisions."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "We left Shanahan's feeling that we'd been grossly overcharged for food that was well below Sizzler standard. In the bar, the cocktails were generous, but the bartender was sullen, not at all friendly. Our order of calamari that was rubbery and tasteless. At dinner our filets were grey in color. I ordered rare; the exterior was a few shades darker grey than the interior. It looked well done as there was no red, all grey. I was provided a new steak that was again grey but rare as the interior was ice cold. But no blood nor carmelization. Frankly, I had no idea what kind of meat it was as there was no flavor either. Gross. We all had steak and all were equally disappointed. Dessert blah. $400 for three people. We'll not return nor recommend."

  • "It was my husband's birthday and our waiter made it very special. He was kind and very friendly. This place couldn't have gotten any better other than the people sitting outside the window of our table. I think the outside life was great just if you get a table with a veiw that's what you should get not the other people blocking it. Those table shouldn't be at the windows. Other than that it was wonderful. I wish I could have just taken my waiter home with me lol he was GREAT!!!!"

  • "The steaks were overcooked. As in beyond well done and we had asked for medium well. No pink inside these steaks at all. Steaks were tough and dry. Everything else was over salted. We have dined at Shanahan's multiple times before but will not return."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Shanahan's and had a wonderful time. we had hear that it was good, and it lived up to its billing. One of the best New York steaks I have ever had! They treated us with a wonderful dessert and traded out a glass of wine that didn't taste like the first one. We will definitely be coming back."

  • "A fantastic dining experience with great food and excellent service. We had steak and lobster and the cooking was excellent. The wait staff was very attentive and took care of our table great. I've been to Shanahan's twice now, once for work and once for pleasure and both were great experiences. My only complaint on this last visit is the time it took to get a table. I had 7:15 reservations and didn't get a table till 8:05. Aside from this, a great experience all the way around."

  • "We were looking forward to trying Shanahan's, and the restaurant looked great, but the food was boring and disappointing. The house salad was not very good, expensive with old overcooked bacon to dress it up, and the steaks were good, not great, as they should be for that price. The special, halibut, was pretty good, but not excellent as I would have expected. Service was fine, but everything just seemed like a run of the mill restaurant rather than a high-class steakhouse, which was what we were expecting."
