    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/26/2014
    Smart restaurants put their best foot fwd to attract diners to become 'regulars' during restaurant week. Did not happen here. Not enough char. avail. to desc. all of the reasons why we won't be back, but here's a short list - 1) happy hour drink prices only available in the bar - sitting 10 ft away 2X the drink price 2) 1st course: 'buffalo' chili - I have it in quotes because there was very little meat, and I couldn't tell if it was actually buffalo. Mostly undercooked beans in a bland sauce that tasted like it came from a powdered mix. 3) 'medium rare' steaks - in quotes because they were barely seared, and could only be called rare, also not seasoned well. 4) Everything bland except for the dessert which was just weird and offputting.

    We heard very good things about this restaurant once it changed a couple of years ago (used to be a seafood place). The ambiance is okay--reminds me of a clubhouse on a golf course--and the views very nice, but the food was simply mediocre! We both had the buffalo steak w/ceasar salad and tort deseart during Restaurant Week (waiter recommendation). The meat was chewy and a bit fatty. Nothing special about the ceasar salad, quite average. The desert was the best part--at least you could see some effort went into it. The waiter was pleasant but not very enthusiastic about his job or serving us. I hear wait saff and chefs don't like 'Restaurant Week', and in this case it showed! It was not croweded so no excuse there.

    I haven't been to Simms Landing in over ten years. The food was good but not as good as it used to be. I was very disappointed that the only fruit they had for Sunday brunch was strawberries (meant for the chocolate fondue). Also, I was a grossed out that there were many dirty plates when I was getting my food. The staff needs to check if the dishes are clean when putting them out.

    The food was fantastic, but the only problem was that they ran out of the Buffalo Steak which I really want to try to see how it taste. The view of downtown and the surrounding Colorado was beautiful. It would be great to take guests to eat here.

    Took my man here for his birthday. It was Denver Dines Out week, and we went in for the Fixed Price Menu. That menu looked wonderful...but the regular just had too many tempting options that were well priced. He had the Teriyaki Steak Medallions and I had the Au Poivre Chicken. Flavorful! I added a side of the sautee'd wild mushrooms--word to the wise: you can easily share your sides with a friend plus have leftovers. The mushrooms were tastey with garlic and thyme. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and flavors--because, in general, we have been disappointed in eating out...anywhere. We will be back! And, a special thanks to Donovan, our waiter, who knew when to be there and when not: excellent service!

    We had a great anniversary dinner at Simms. We used to go 20 years ago all the time. I was hoping it would be as good. It was so much better than I remebered. The resturant is beautiful and the view of the city is amazing. The food is very very good. We couldn't have asked for a better night--the double rainbow and lightning storm were just about the perfect backdrop to the amazing view. I would definately recommend this resturant to anyone who wants a wonderful evening with great food. (my 16 year old was even impressed--miracle). Our waiter was exceptional as well. We will back soon.

    Simms does indeed have one of the best views of Denver. They have a wider variety of menu items other than beef which is a nice change from the usual steakhouse fare. But their prices for steaks are very high ($30-40), and these don't even include any side orders/vegetables. Service was adequate, but did not match the prices.

    I felt everything was way overpriced compared to the quality. Staff forget our bread completely. Did not know the cocktail I ordered on the first try. I ordered crab - they brought drawn butter and never lit the candle under it. Seated a party next to us and tables were way too close. We finally moved out own table when the staff kept tripping over my chair to get to them. All this for a mere $325 (before tip) for a party of 4.

    I love OpenTable because we find so many great restaurants that we never would otherwise. The food here was amazing. This prices are on the higher end so that should be expected, but Simms certainly didn't disappoint. The NY strip and prime rib we had were both very flavorful and perfectly cooked. We also enjoyed the shrimp cocktail although they were not as large as I would expect in a restaurant such as this. The views of downtown Denver are amazing. We dined just before sunset and got to watch the lights in the city all come on as the night progressed. I would definitely dine here again.

    The food was excellent, the view great, and the service good. The steak and prime rib melted in your mouth and the shrimp tempura appetizer was excellent. The asparagus, being large, was not as tasty as smaller stalks tend to be.

    I've been coming here for over three decades, my brother showed me this glorous spot back in 77 and I have visited it ever since. I lived in Vail from 76 - 90 and would always stop in with several diferent women to whom I dated and would pick up at (Stapelton) and stop in for a romantic meal before the long drive to Vail. Back then, it was more the increadable view of the city and surrounding Burbs. 20 years +/- I started bringing my kids (going to school...Collage) to share the experience. I can say after 24 years in Chicago, You have a warm, classy place that my kids, now in there 30's like to bring me to to reminess and my new wife from East coast loves it.

    We were a group of 4 and everyone was very pleased with Simms Steakhouse. The food, the service, and the view were all outstanding. The location on a hill in Lakewood offered a wonderful view of downtown at dusk as the lights were coming on. Our group ordered prime rib, filet, and rib eye, and each cut was cooked to the precise temperature ordered, and each cut was tender and flavorful. The wine list was varied and was quite reasonably priced. In short, we coulld not have been happier with our decision to dine at Simms.

We have a great night of slowly eating some fantastic food and drinking good wine. Waiter had great pace and was very aware of the menu. His recommendations were great.

    We were celebrating our anniversary and wanted a good steak dinner, but didn't want to have to go downtown on a Saturday night. Simms Steakhouse was the perfect choice. From the melt in your mouth dinner rolls that come out first, to the pear and Saga Blue cheese salad, to the perfectly cooked steaks, everything was done to perfection. We finished with creme brûlée and that was wonderful as well. This is one of those places that the noise level is not so loud that you can't hear what the person across from you is saying. It is away from the chaos of the downtown Denver area which really makes for a relaxing evening.

    My husband and I went for our anniversary, we never spend this much on a meal and expected great service. The food was delicious and brought to us promptly. The service, however, wa awful. Our waiter did not give us the choice of free water and instead brought us a $6 bottle when we asked for water. They did not have the ingredients for the cocktail I ordered so our waiter brought me a different drink stating it was on the house. When the bill came it turns out he charged me $1 more for my "on the house" cocktail than the drink I originally ordered. As I said this was a special occasion and my husband and I never spend that much money on a meal. For such an expensive meal I expect respectful and quality waitstaff and I got the opposite

    I received a gift certificate for Simms Steakhouse from a client and decided to use it for an anniversary with my boyfriend. We normally don't spend $150 on dinner, even for special occasions, but I have to say that Simms Steakhouse exceeded our expectations and it was worth it. We are talking about going again when we have another special occasion. We loved the appetizer suggested (special tempura shrimp), the soups )lobster bisque and a special clam chowder) and the steaks were phenomenal. I'd highly recommend it for a special occasion.
