Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "We celebrated my husband's birthday here and it was perfect. The food was superb - from the scallop appetizer to the filet entree to the chocolate cake dessert. We also appreciated the input offered by the sommelier. Service was attentive without being overbearing. We'll be back!"

  • "The complaints we had was that when we first arrived we were ignored by the two people in the front while they finished their conversation. When we took our seat our waitress was very quiet and hard to hear possibly because the music was a little loud. Our meal was good but did have a little more salt then we preferred. Everyone was kind and thoughtful since it was our anniversary."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "The service is impeccable and the ambiance is romantic. While they can serve a delicious cocktail the food is of the simple steakhouse variety. The appetizer had more flavor than my main dish but all were still very tasty."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "My family and I really enjoyed our dinning experience, I love high end steakhouses, great wine selections and excellent service. Our waiter's name was Ryan he made us feel so comfortable yet presented his services with elegance I plan to return in the future."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The steak doesn't need a knife to cut it and the creamed spinach is a must order."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "It was our first time and and a surprise for my husbands 40th bday. Our server was wonderful, and my husband said his steak was amazing. I ordered the 20oz ribeye and I didn't want to complain at all but mine was supposed to be pink in the center and it was charred on the outside and very well done. I knew they would have to throw it away and start over and I didn't want to waste it. So that is the only reason for 4 stars. But I was a little disappointed for a $55 steak to come burnt black, especially since a restaurant of this caliber is a rare occasion for us. But the service was excellent. And we had a wonderful time."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The food is great - steaks done to perfection with wonderful sides. The wine list and the service live up to the food. Some people complain about the prices but they are very much in line with a top of the line steak house. One of the best steak dinners I have ever had!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Shanahan's is the most disappointing restaurant experience that I have had in years. The coconut shrimp was dry and rubbery. The steak was cooked to perfection but was intensely over seasoned and yet fundamentally lacking in flavor. Dessert was a double chocolate brownie with marshmallow ice cream, except the brownie was dry cake and the only thing that made the ice cream marshmallow were the few pieces of mini marshmallows in the vanilla ice cream. Overall, horrible food with excellent service."

  • "We sat out at the bar and had the bar menu which was perfect. The tuna was wonderful, mussels wonderful and beef wonderful. Nothing more to say, we love coming to Shanahan's and enjoying the atmosphere."

  • "I lost a bet over the last Broncos Seahawks Superbowl... my brother works for Paul Allen which didn't help. I couldn't let well enough alone so I injected a little irony by selecting Shanahan's at the payback restaurant. Initially this and recommendations from friends was the selection criteria. What I wasn't prepared for was the best dinning experience ever! From the greeting hostess to the Superbowl Lombardi hardware viewing as we left, a truly awesome dinning experience. All four of us left with the opinion that this was the best steak dinner we have ever had. My brother will definitely cross Bronco's territory again for a meal like this."

  • "Went to Shanahan's to celebrate a birthday. We were waited on immediately with water glasses filled and fresh bread brought to the table. The three of us all had steaks. Most tasteful and tender steaks cooked to each of our preference. Lisa provided us with outstanding service and great conversation. Everything was wonderful and wouldn't hesitate a second on returning."

  • "Went to Shanahan's for our anniversary. The table had rose petals scattered across it, and many people shared their congratulations with us throughout the meal. The food quality was what I would expect from a high quality steakhouse. The notable part of the meal was our service. Our server, Abbey, was amazing! She was responsive without hovering, and truly interested in our enjoyment. Thank you for a lovely evening."

  • "The steaks were done to perfection as was each part of the meal - starting with delicious bread, escargot, and best calamari I have ever eaten. The sides were excellent and each would serve 2 people easily. Great waiter - ready with advice when needed, very efficient and friendly enough to be a pleasant experience without being intrusive - earned his 25% tip! We'll be back!"
