Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I had been to nearly every steakhouse in Denver with the exception of Shanahan's. We decided to give it a whirl for our anniversary and it did not disappoint. The service was great and our dinner was absolutely wonderful. I would even go as far, as to say, this was quite possibly one of the best dinners I've ever had. Our meal consisted of the Iceberg Wedge, 8oz Filet w/ Jumbo Lump Crab Oscar, 22oz Bone-In Rib Eye, Au Gratin Potatoes and Salted Caramel Crème Brule. Our food came out sizzling hot, the Filet and Rib Eye were as tender as can be, the potatoes had great flavor and the Crème Brule was the icing on the cake. Although expensive, I highly recommend this steakhouse. It was perfect for our special occasion."

  • "I thought the food was very good. The service was great and the people were very nice. However everything was very salty. I felt it was over priced food."

  • "I was a little leary after reading some of the reviews where people had reservations but still had a long wait. We were immediately seated and I can't begin to tell you how awesome the food tasted. I am a huge fan and this will be our new spot for special occasions!"

  • "We had reservations for seven and had a delightful dining experience. The food and service was excellent and the price competitive for a high end restaurant. It was very busy that evening and the noise levels were high which made it difficult to catch all of the conversations at the table but other than that no complaints. Would definitely recommend this restaurant."

  • "We had the house salad which was uninspired. My new york strip was ordered medium rare.l was tough and gray. The mashed potatoes were served in generous potions. Filet mignon was just right delicious and juicy. No reason to go back.adequate at best."

  • "Arrived 7:50pm for 8:00pm reservation. Seated at 8:45pm with no explanation why, we asked!!! Why take an 8:00pm reservation if no table (2 top) available??? Service started out just fine. Food arrived before we had a chance to order a second cocktail. Filet mignon temperature was perfect. Sea bass was under cooked and served covered in a strong catsup tasting mound of tomato-fennel fondue on top of very over cooked spinach. Side of grilled asparagus was served cold and raw, not even close to al dente. Waiter disappeared and never returned until well after dinner was finished. Given desert menu but again waiter disappeared so we were not able to order. Finally had table busser get waiter and our check. Would not return."

  • "They couldn't seat us until an hour past our reservation time. Food was poorly timed, 30 minute wait between when they cleared our first course until the second course arrived. Everyone was trying their hardest but they just weren't able to hit the mark for an expensive upscale restaurant. It left all of us feeling like there are better places to go in denver ."

  • "Reservation: 6:45 Seated: 7:05 Table: cramped so that I could not even get my chair out and had to sit right on top of the large group behind me. Party of 12 young men next to us who kept bumping into my chair. Wait staff kept hitting my chair--very annoying Dress code: non-existent Dinner was rushed, it was extremely noisy and not conducive to a nice dinner. The music was so loud everyone was talking over it."

  • "We love Shanahan's and have been there many times. This meal was wonderful as always. I would say the only drawback was that we were there at 6PM and the lighting was a little odd. We have never been there that early before. It was like the outside light was too bright and the inside light was not bright enough. From the booth we were sitting at I could barely see my husband throughout most of our meal. I would recommend a later reservation time, or maybe sitting at one of the tables instead of a booth if you are there early. Otherwise amazing as always!"

  • "We already thought Shanahan's was the best steak house in Denver, but they improved their standing in our minds even further. They went out of their way to make our anniversary special. Just about everyone who brought us anything wished us a happy anniversary, they gave us a free dessert, spread rose petals on the table before we got there. The food was unbelievable as always - bone-in-ribeye was awesome."

  • "Been here before food & service were great! This time around waited for over an hour to be seated with a reservation and food was not great neither was service. For the price it was not worth it. We didnt eat until almost 1030 at night on a 8:15 reservation. missed the show we were going to attend to pay 200.00 for ok service and food. I am very dissapointed"

  • "This restaurant is fantastic. My husband and I as well as my parents shared a table on a Saturday night. We shared the chop salad & beet salad. Let me just say there was not a bite left of either salad. Both my husband and my dad are sure they have never had a better steak in their life. My husband ordered the filet, while my dad had the porterhouse. The lobster mac & cheese with truffles was outstanding. I was filled with the aroma of truffles throughout the rest of my halibut with fresh heirloom salsa dinner. We all shared the creme brulee for dessert. The price is not cheap, but definitely worth every penny. We will return to Shanahan's."

  • "When we brought to the manager attention the Lobster TIl was not edible which he saw himself clearly he said "catch you next time" Until this happened we were regulars(monthly at least) at Shanahans. That was part of the last bad experience there. By the way my wife did not eat one bite of the baseball hard lobster tail and it was near $100.00"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Yes, Shanahan's is a steakhouse but the pork chop was so perfect and flavorful. My date had the filet and that was wonderful as one would expect from a decent steak place. The staff and atmosphere are terrific. Go there right now - there will be no regret."

  • "As Seinfeld said, "You know how to *take* the reservation, you just don't know how to *hold* the reservation. And that's really the most important part of the reservation: the holding. Anybody can just take them." We had to wait 40 minutes after our reserved time to finally sit down. We weren't the only ones, at least 4 other couples were forced to wait WAY past their reserved table time. Yes, we were offered a couple of free cocktails for our trouble, but I would rather have paid for my cocktail while sitting at a table. On another note, we watched a couple of notable local celebrities walk in and sit right down. Hmmm...it's not the reservation you make, it's the level of your coolness, apparently."

  • "From the moment we entered Shanahan's we were treated like VIP 's. Our table was waiting and our waiter Ryan was friendly and helpful with wine and menu selections .He even wished Steve a Happy when we first sat down. (I had made the reservation on opentable and put a note in that it was a birthday celebration, I did not have to say anything). At the end of our meal ryan brought a delicious piece of chocolate cake with a candle. What a treat! The evening was a special one and we will definitely go back. Also, I should mention the valet and coat check were very helpful and welcoming."

  • "The service was over the top but appropriate where they weren't getting on your nerves. Our waiter was awesome, as were all the people that helped him. The good is consistently excellent every time we go. I tried something different this home and it was hot and flavorful. It was our 32 anniversary so dessert was on them. Outstanding job, although it's pretty noisy in there. Not the place for a quiet and romantic dinner but great energy"

  • "This was my second time at Shanahan's, with a similar experience. The quality of the steaks at our table were average, and way over salted and over seasoned. Outstanding wine list and the service was very very good. We spent an hour talking before ordering with no pressure from our server. However, I doubt I'll return for a third visit."
