Elway’s is outstanding. The only reason I gave them anything but outstanding was on the “value”. Not because it was too expensive, just because it is pricy. Worth every penny for a special occasion.

The staff did a great job of making my 6 year old feel special on her birthday. Maybe that is why she asks to go there when she has the choice.

I left a pair of very expensive sunglasses sitting at the table that sadly weren’t turned in. This is my only issue. But i can’t point the finger of blame at anyone.

Being our 13 year anniversary the setting was perfect, having a table for two. Noting that it was our anniversary upon making our reservations, we were stunned when we were seated to see an outline of a heart made up with rose pedals on our table. Everyone that catered to us knew us by our last name, very polite, always to our needs and the food was fantastic. Expectations were met.

We went downtown to ELWAY’S VS Cherry Creek because it was closer and I am so glad we did. Since it is in the Ritz Carlton it had Ritz Carlton service! The steaks were better at this location and the overall feel was open and inviting! This is now one of my all time favorites!

Service was suboptimal. Steak, just ok. Guard and grace have way better service and steaks! So does cap grille. The two waiters we had were short with us and snippy. I’d been to the elways in CC and had decent service. I’ll never return to the downtown location.

We shared the most amazing bone in ribeye we have ever had. Plenty of meat for two with the best flavor ever! The mashed potatoes were also delicious. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Denver!

We usually love Elway’s and wanted to spend a very special occasion there. We’ve never had such terrible service and supposedly had two servers. We were neglected and three of five steaks were undercooked. I had to ask for my water to be refilled and it took us several minutes to try and get the check. Just not what we expect for a $500 meal.

We ordered our rack of lamb medium which should be a warm pink center. While I like my steaks medium rare I prefer lamb a little more cooked. Our rack of lamb was almost raw. While the outside crust was cooked, the center of the lamb was so raw it was almost purple. I sent it back. It came back with the outside cooked more but the center was still raw. I didn't eat mine and my husband only ate 1 of the chops off of his rack. The rack of lamb was also not that tender since it was so raw. Cooking it in the microwave at home actually made it more tender believe it not since cooking it helped with the toughness. Also, the mustard coating on the outside of the lamb was really over powering. The creamed spinach wasn't cooked enough either. The creamed spinach at Ruth's Chris is waaay better. The au gratin potatoes were really good and the warm pretzel sticks they give you in the bread basket were really good. They did remember my husbands birthday so they get brownie points for that and the birthday dessert was top notch. Instead of the usual ice cream you get everywhere else , here they give you a warm brownie with ice cream on top.

The food was great, although there was not a lot of people in the restaurant, we were pretty much abandoned and our order was wrong. Could absolutely get past that but no one came around until we were done and said she was taking over. We got our check and left. With such poor attention, we will not be back.

It was fine although we had a big table with kids running around next to us which was annoying. Not the restaurant’s fault just bad parenting.

Dinner was awesome as always. The only thing I could’ve done without was the trio of men taking a conference call at a table a behind us. Having to listen to that on speaker phone wasn’t ideal.

The steaks were very good, but consistently undercooked. My bison ribeye was particularly good, but no more than rare when ordered medium rare. Our other 4 steaks were undercooked 1-2 notches. The service was superb. We enjoyed it and would return when in Denver again.

Menu looked interesting online, service fell short, then food arrived husband's baked potato was stone cold. I ordered the beef enchiladas, told server that the chef needed to learn what one was. I was served something that looked like a burnt flautas or taquito and they tried to cover up the burnt flower tortilla with sour cream (which I hate) and guacamole. Beef & sauce was fine but it was definitely not an enchilada. For the prices that were charged I expected a higher quality of food and preparation.

We met old friends for brunch and started with Bloody Marys and Mimosas which were very tasty and spicy to our liking. Ordered brunch items on a Sunday around 11:30 am and the dining room was somewhat empty. The Eggs Acapulco was a huge burrito filled only with scrambled eggs and covered with a bare minimum of green chili and cheese. The Crab Benedict was visually pleasing but the hollandise seemed to be absent so we asked for more. The quality of the hollandise was marginal for the reputation of the name ELWAY’S. The Cobb salad was very plentiful and very tasty. The staff was very attentive to us but also keeping busy setting up for later seatings. With the name ELWAY’S we were expecting a lot more of a “Wow” factor in the food so we might check the menu online before we think about coming back.
