  • We were let down a little this time.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/17/2014
    There was a couple behind our table that made our experience less than appealing. The woman was very loud and we couldn't even have our own conversation at our table. Two members of management even stopped by the table and visited with the couple and let them know that they appreciated their business, which seemed to be a reasonable attempt to try and get them to tone it down, without saying as much. It didn't work very well. Simms has always been a choice place for us when we are in Denver, which is not very often. Anyway - The waiter did an excellent job of taking care of us. He was "Outstanding"!

    Simms has a pretty view and good service, but just so-so food. The steaks are nothing special, don't appear to be aged in any special way, and not seasoned especially well. The service was very attentive and the restaurant was nice looking. The price was high for the average quality of food.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 10/11/2014
    I wanted to celebrate a special birthday with a friend that loves steak. The management and wait-staff kept asking if everything was just fabulous to prompt an inflated rave reaction. The truth is I believe this restaurant might have been great at one time. The ribeye steak was poorly prepared and unappetizing. The steak which was ordered medium rare was weakly cooked and slapped on a plate as if the ovens were incapable of cooking it properly. We didn't say anything to each other not trying to disappoint the other until we left with the barely eaten left over steak and just tossed it realizing we both knew it wasn't worth eating. Service was friendly but food wasn't worthy of the reputation that preceded it and very overpriced.

    We felt like you couldn't beat the views and the service was good. But the food was only fair especially for the price. Some of the food was good but most of it lacked flavor. The sauces were good for example, the Calamari was bland but it was accompanied by two sauces so as long as you dipped them, it was good. This was the same for our other appetizers, sides and main entrees. The server was good and she was attentive as well as all the other staff.

    4th visit -- the first 2 wonderful, the last 2 disappointing. This time we had prime rib with baked potato. The meals were barely warm, the baked potato hardly melted the butter. The costs of dining at Simms Steakhouse are high, as are the expectations. The prime rib had a wonderful flavor, it was just cold. We will try it one more time, hopefully these 2 instances are the exception, rather than the rule.

    My son ordered a prime rib cooked medium rare. The piece he received was cooked well done so he sent it back. His new serving looked wonderful on the top but when he flipped it over, he discovered it was cut from the side of the beef and was cooked well done. The server commented that this piece was usually reserved for those who ordered the cut well done. However, the manager only offered our table free desserts and did not comp my son for the meal. They got off cheap since only 2 at our table ordered the dessert. They also lost our business.

    The brunch was uninspired and rather bland! All the choices in potatoes looked the same as did the rice. The pork was dry and the sauce offered had a coffee base. If you are not a coffee lover you were out of luck. Where were the rolls?! There were none. We had to search for someone to get coffee to our table. The professionalism of the staff has definitely decreased. Over all, I won't go back nor will I recommend it to anyone else.

    I last visited for Brunch some 10 years ago when it was still Simms Landing. Back then I enjoyed the Brunch as I did this weekend for my 1st visit as Simms Steakhouse. I enjoyed my visit this weekend. The food was good, The wait staff and omelet cooks were great. The only thing that I was not happy with was the price for a tiny glass of Mimosa. I own a HVAC Company and Yes, I know you have to mark up your product(s) to survive but you also have to be reasonable to the people that are paying a premium price for breakfast. Wouldn't you feel better as a customer if you were offered a complimentary glass of Mimosa with your breakfast/brunch? I know I would.

    My first steak was over cooked and the second was under. I will not send back for a third. Rare steak that is cold centered is not pleasant to me. Not to mention it was rather flavorless. My son's filet was perfectly prepared but lacked any aged flavor. All the sides were great, but left wanting a steak.

    Took a business client here for dinner with my girlfriend. Service and view of the city are outstanding. Two of us ordered the bison strip, it was not worth $45. We were offered full refunds for them but as we had already ate most of them we felt a partial refund was more appropriate. All of the sides were very tasty. The tuna entre was also very good.

    When we go out for dinner, we like to feel we paid for the experience as well as the food. These days, any foodie can make a delicious, "upscale" dinner at home. What we found at Simms Steakhouse was a full dining experience. The views are stunning. The ambiance is welcoming, not stuffy like some steakhouses. The service was fabulous. It was a birthday, and the menu was personalized for the birthday gal. The steaks were perfectly done to order and the sauces complimented them beautifully. The sides are the only reason the food does not receive 5 stars. They were lackluster. The salads were slightly overdressed for my tastes. But none of that mattered, because Simms feels like a pleasant get-away. A beautiful place for a special dinner.

    Second time we have gone there and have been very happy both times. Food is excellent. Have had both steaks and fish, appetizers and deserts. Nice wine list. Prices are comparable to most high end steakhouses. Service has been unsurpassed. Our server was Donovan both times and he is great. Very knowledgeable and very friendly. Will be going back soon.

    My wife and I love this restaurant. The service and ambiance are excellent, the noise level (even for the hard of hearing, like me) is refreshingly tolerable. Typically the food is wonderful, especially their fish and beef entrees. The drinks are ample and tasty. My only complaint, after much of patronage, has more to do with what I believe to be an accident than common practice. My $50 bone-in buffalo steak was perhaps the most grisly, fat laden piece of red meat I've ever attempted to eat. To Simm's credit they made it right and the other meal items more than made up for this mis-step. We will be back.

    The filet mignon was delicious, but the ribeye was overcooked. Mac n cheese was very good. Our waiter, however, seemed not engaged in our meal nor our experience. No specials were given. The wine we ordered was supposed to be a 2011 vintage wine. When we caught them trying to replace it with a 2012, they did not give a solution nor offer it at a lower price. It's sad because it used to be an excellent steakhouse. Most likely will not return.

    My husband and I brought an out of state guest who travels the world. We were all impressed with unique choices from the wine list and menu. My fillet melted in my mouth! It was cooked to perfection; medium-rare, throughout and not just pink in the center. Desserts and after-dinner drinks were enjoyed as we looked out upon the Denver skyline at night. The hostesses and wait staff were respectfully friendly. Our waiter, Matt, really knew his wines and details of each dish. He was attentive, but not hovering. Valet parking is best to use with the unique, tiered parking levels, but that is why there is such a lovely view. It was a beautiful, relaxed evening, and a pleasure to our senses in every way. We would highly recommend!

    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.

The service was great and they even print " happy birthday Mike" on the top of my menu since it was my birthday. The meal fizzled at the end though with a blue berry bread pudding that was over caramelized (burned) on top. Overall good experience. I would go again. ..but order creme brule.

    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.
