Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Shanahan's is a modern upscale steakhouse in the Denver Tech Center. They offer an expansive wine list and complementary valet parking. On a rainy night the bar was packed. Our waiter was very attentive and the service excellent. Four stars only because we had approximately a 20-minute wait to be seated with reservations. Our steaks were excellent and prepared correctly to order. Our dessert was rich and wonderful, and we received it complementary in in celebration of our wedding anniversary. The gesture was a very nice touch! Finally, one of the coolest things my wife and I witnessed, were patrons requesting, and getting the chance to hold a Vince Lombardi Trophy from the memorabilia display in the lobby for a Smart Phone picture."

  • "My wife and I went to Shanahans on our 5th wedding anniversary. I had the sunday 6 oz filet special and my wife had the prime rib special. Both steaks were fantastic, really what you would expect, but the sides of cream corn and asparugus (that we chose) were just average. We don't frequent the expensive steakhouses that often so I'd have to say that we will probably try a few of their competitors before we go back."

  • "My husband and I were visiting Denver and we were looking for a good steak restaurant. The bar seating was fun with the beautiful wine room, glass shelves full of glasses and the round bar in full view. We enjoyed the filet and thick pork chop along with the cheesy au gratin potatoes. It is expensive but this was a special occasion. My husband enjoyed looking at the trophy case."

  • "Came here for a friends birthday. The Cowboy Steak was one of the best steaks I've had in years. The birthday girl had the fish of the day...Halibut and it was incredible. Cooked perfectly! We highly recommend the sides especially the Brussell Sprouts. They were roasted with rosemary and they were incredible. Au Gratin potatoes were very good too. For dessert the lemon cake is just wonderful. The room has great energy but you can still have a conversation with out any problems. Taylor was our server. He knows what he is doing...the courses flowed perfectly and he was very knowledgeable about the menu offerings."

  • "This was my Husband and I's first time to your restaurant - Shanahans. It was my Husbands birthday, so I was hoping it would be a nice, intimate place. I was so pleased with that it met my expectations! The good was amazing and the outdoor dining area was just what I was hoping for- intimate and beautiful. We will definitely be coming back!"

  • "This is our third visit to Shanahan's. After our second we said we wouldn't return, but we were given a generous gift certificate and so we decided to give it another chance. Unfortunately the food still didn't live up to our expectations. For the kind of money they charge, there are so many better places to eat for a significantly better experience. My husband loved his veal chop but the pasta that accompanied it was over cooked. My fish was dry and bland and while I know Shanahan's is known for its steak, it has several fish items on the menu so the chefs should know how to cook fish perfectly and flavor it appropriately. We had a lovely waitress who tried her best but then sent a dessert we didn't order or want as an apology."

  • "The food was excellent - Steaks and lobster cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was great - the concert was driving a lot of activity outside so we could see what was happening without being disturbed by it. All in all, it was a relaxing dinner and well worth the expense. We'll be be back!"

  • "Started right from the door in that the hostesses were very welcoming & accommodating. We were a few minutes early so stepped to the bar for a cocktail. I had a long island iced tea that was the best I've had in a long time! We got into a conversation with a gentleman that was playing wingman for a buddy of his. After intro's & discussing family and why we were at Shanahan's, he picked our drinks! Too cool!! Dinner was fabulous! Wifey had the filet, oscar style while I had the veal. So sooo good! We shared the wagyu beef carpaccio appetizer that was just top notch! Bottom line, the entire evening was one not to be forgotten anytime soon!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We enjoy meeting friends here for drinks / dinner and catching up. The food is usually very good - consistent and the service as well. We like to share a steak, salad, and shrimp cocktail because the shrimp are usually a meal in itself and the cocktail sauce is delicious. It was disappointing this time that the shrimp were somewhat smaller (for the same price) and not as good as usual. Everything else at our table was very good."

  • "To celebrate our 25th anniversary, my husband and I decided to go to Shanahan's. A good choice! Our table was scattered with rose petals, which was a touching gesture. The coconut shrimp appetizer may be the best ever, and the crab cake was delicious too. Bone-in ribeye was cooked to perfection and generous enough to serve us both, with leftovers. The sides were delish as well (creamed spinach and potatoes au gratin... yum). The complimentary slice of chocolate raspberry cake was heavenly. The service -- especially that of our server (Lisa N) -- was PERFECTION. We'll be back..."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "The service was great, and the bone-in ribeye was spectacular. The macadamia mahi mahi was a disappointment; I should not have veered away from the steak menu. Outdoor dining on the patio was awesome and would be perfect if no smoking were allowed. The birthday cake was delicious and a fun surprise, and was a very nice touch."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "The food portions were extremely small for the expense of the meals. The server seemed annoyed when we requested things. She never asked how our meals were and never smiled."

  • "We were very disappointed with our experience at Shanahan's. We had a 7:15 reservation and we were not seated until 8:00. They did buy us a drink but there should be better management and understanding of table turnover. When we were seated it was in the furthest back corner of the restaurant under a blowing air conditioning vent. We have been to Shanahan's many times but I think this was the first time we booked our table through Open Table. Maybe they treat Open Table people differently. A couple who came in after us with a reservation at the same time were seated before us in the main room. Open Table might want to follow up on this. Not a good experience"
