    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!

    We tried Simms Landing for Denver Restaurant week. I had the buffalo with peanut sauce. The sauce overpowered the meat. The salad had too much dressing. Thought that they would have wanted to showcase something more memorable.

    I really enjoy the view and the service at Simm's. I usually celebrate special occasions here since the view is fabulous and the restaurant is close to home. I enjoyed the special attention of being a Laundry's Select Club member. Restaurant week menu. Great steak but it could have included a side of veggies. Great staff and service.

    Was impressed from the start with valets who knew how to treat a customer, a smiling door greeter, and a gracious hostess. Waiter was attentive and friendly, food was wonderful, and a special note about the smoked maccaroni and cheese--I would drive across town just to have this! They also know how to cook a steak properly! We will be back many times!

    If an ounce or two of fish or chicken was some concession for restaurant week, then shame on them. If it is their standard portion size, than I can't imagine paying regular prices for it. Since I don't know, it is unlikely that I'll return.

    We were moved to a different area at my request due to a column in my line of sight (and the view is what it's about here). The waitress asked for our order too quickly then disappeared and we had to ask someone else to get her. She was slow to get our drink order to us, too. Food was good, but the service was spotty.

    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.

    Overall my meal (pinot, prime rib, broiled shrimp, smoked cheddar mac & cheese and a Manhattan) was great. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
