    When reservation made on open table, I shared that we were celebrating my sister and brother-in-law's 40th anniversary. We were welcomed into a booth that was sprinkled with red rose petals. After dinner, our waiter Dean brought out an anniversary card with personalized note along with a dessert.

    As loyal patrons we've recently observed that quality is decreasing and prices are increasing. When purchasing a $45 to $50 + steak, one expects a thimble full of peppercorn sauce might be complimentary, however at Shanahans the cost is $4. Their "table sized" side dishes have become individual portions, yet the servers go around the table dishing out basically teaspoon sized samples to maintain the illusion. Their expectation is obviously to sell more $12-$14 sides/salads. We also noticed that during peak times, preparation quality of the food is diminished. Shanahans has been one of our favorites since opening but it appears that formerly uncompromising quality has given way to ever higher profit demand

    The food was incredible and the service was even better. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the wines and the food. He was perfect for being at such a fancy restaurant for the first time. He guided us through the menu, making suggestions and had a wonderful personality. He made our dining experience better than I could ever imagine. It is expensive but worth it for a very special occasion. I will never forget the night.

    Jacob, our server, was very helpful in making menu selections, and his service was outstanding. The 22oz bone in ribeye was amazing. It was cooked perfectly, and was the best tasting steak I've ever eaten. I also highly recommend the clover honey cheese cake. Shanahan's is elegant, but not as intimate as Brooke's or Flemmings.

    Me and my husband went for my birthday and granted we make fairly good money but to spend it at a place that makes you feel like your ordering off the special menu they bring out the salad that was mediocare at best and the filet was big enough for me but was ok slightly tough for a tenderloin the service of the sides was rushed by the servers, I guess I expected more for the price I think next time I will spend my $120.00 making my own meal at home.

    We went to this restaurant on a Friday night of restaurant week. It was not as busy as expected; there were empty tables at 7:30pm. We were open to ordering off the restaurant week menu but only two entrees were available: steak or salmon. We ordered off the regular menu. I had sea bass that the waiter recommended and my husband had the bone in filet. The sea bass was bland and ordinary in taste. Also our waiter was attentive but had such an arrogant attitude that his comments and facial expressions made it seem insincere...maybe he wants a good tip. There are so many good restaurants in Denver that I do not plan on eating at this restaurant again but the summer outdoor patio parties are fun so may go back then.

    If you dine at any place in Denver during Restaurant week, you can expect crowds and busy waiters. Sometimes you get sub-par food to boot. Not at Shanahan's. This was the second time that we ate during restaurant week and both times we came away feeling we had a special experience. They seem to be able to manage the hubbub well and they have a prime cut of steak on the menu - quite generous I think. We plan on going back for a special occasions at some point.

    Went to Shanahan's last night on the Denver Restaurant Week deal. This was definitely our best restaurant experience this year. Everything was perfect. My wife and I both had the small filet special. The steaks, mashed potatoes and the asparagus spears were fantastic. Shanahan's will be our first choice restaurant for special occasions.

    We went to Shanahan's with friends for Restaurant Week and really enjoyed it. They promptly seated us and the wait staff was very efficient and friendly. The bread with our meal was very good. The salad was cold and flavorful. The steaks were cook perfectly. The garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus were small portions but just the right amount for us. The espresso mouse was a great ending to a wonderful meal. We were seated next to the bar so the noise level a little loud but tolerable. We would definitely go back for a very special occasion.

    Filet was one of the best we've had. So tender you could literally cut it with a fork. Calamari was exceptional as well, and we have eaten many a plate in many locales. When the quality is so high one doesn't mind paying a bit more. Glad to see the portions were ample as well. Huge wine and spirits menu! The only negative was that the music in the bar area tables was a bit loud. Made it more difficult to converse. Servi e was attentive and friendly. We shall return.

    Loved trying Shanahan's for the first time. We had a drink on the patio, which was beautiful, while waiting for our table. We weren't sure how such a nice restaurant's waitstaff would treat us when they saw we were participating in the Denver Restaurant Week, but they were all so friendly. I was even serenaded by the waiter for my birthday. The food was delicious beyond words. I will definitely be back!

    We had been wanting to try Shanahan's for a while. I just attained another milestone in my new "second career" so I started to check for reservations. Just so happened it was restaurant week so we went to Shanahan's. The filet was amazing along with the rest of the meal. Of course they were very busy, but they handled it well. We will try to go again before too long and try it when they aren't so busy. Excellent meal.

    This was my 2nd visit. We were seated in the bar area which was not very comfortable and extremely noisy. The music was horrible. The service was good our food came in a fair amount of time. I had the filet which was cooked to perfection it was very very good as were the garlic mashed potatoes. The salad was not cold and crisp the asparagus was very thick and woody. Desert ok My 1st experience was 100 spot on.

    They clean your table from bread crumbs/ food three times. The manager came by to ask if everything was satisfactory during Denver Restaurant Week, which was super busy. So that was admirable. The salad at Il Fornio is better, the filet was cooked perfect, mashed potatoes and asparagas sides were fine and the chocolate mousse was delicious. I think they could have tried to "wow" people more with the food, but it's a nice busy restaurant and they probably don't need extra business. If you brought friends and family here, I don't think anyone would be disappointed.
