We had guests visiting and we took them to dinner and had an excellent experience. Food and service were superb. It is always excellent and that's why we chose to entertain our guests there.

Asian chicken salad wasn't great...not much chicken (small pieces, would be better if they had roasted pulled chicken), not a lot of flavor.

We were underwhelmed with our midday meal for Mother's Day. The staff was harried, the food was OK (hot, tasted good but overpriced for what it was), no coffee offered, the noise level was annoying. Round tables are a disaster with older (hearing challenged) guests. The chairs need to be reupholstered with stiffer seat cushions - all the guests felt they were sinking below comfortable table level.

An amazing dinner with an incredible bone-in-NY strip cooked to perfection and awesome sides! The wine list is A+ , the ambiance was spectacular and our waiter made the evening over the top! I would highly recommend this restaurant if you live or are visiting Denver!

The waiter Steven was attentive, very knowledgeable and had great sense of humor. We appreciated his food suggestions and sharing his thoughts of the dishes we ordered. Our food was great. The Wagyu ribeye was cooked to order, perfectly seasons and flavorful. The sea food tower was great and the additional sauces suggested by Steven enhanced the flavor of the crab meat. The seared Ahi tuna was cooked to order and the wasabi crust enhanced the flavor of the tuna.

Arrived a few minutes early at the hostess stand for our reservation. The hostess had no personality, no smile, no thanks for choosing Elway’s. Her only comment...”I can seat you now”
She steered us to a table that felt more like a booth on a small raised platform. I asked if we could have a banquette seat as there were 2 open. “Stay here and I’ll check”....”Sorry, they’re all reserved”
Waiter was pleasant and knowledgeable about the wines by the glass and promptly took our order.
Salad course arrived within minutes of ordering.....and I commented about the speed. Halfway through the salad course, the steaks came out. Different server...I asked if they were in a hurry or was there a time limit we were under to finish our meals...she chuckled, started clearing the salads, then asked if I was done...I said apparently so. She then said the kitchen had been very quick this evening. There was no apology.
The quality of the food was a solid good...but not great .
Paid the check and left... no thanks for dining or good night...and one of the 2 banquettes was still open when we left.
I guess the most surprising thing was the lack of personality of the staff...especially when you consider the restaurant is in a Ritz Carlton Hotel. The doorman/valet was the friendliest person we encountered all evening.
Definitely won’t return...once was enough for me

The buffet was good, but a bit pricey. I ordered a Bellini and I was brought a Mamosa. When I sent it back, I was told the reason they didn't bring a Bellini was because they were out of peach nectar. I ordered a Bloody Mary and the mix was watered down tomato juice with overkill on the worchestershire. Definitely need improvements on mixology and understanding that a customer knows what they drink.

For the prices you would expect great food and service. However, that is not what my wife and I experienced. Our waitresses recommendation of the bone-in NY strip turned out to be somewhat tough with the flavor and the cook being just ok. My wife ordered a baked potato and John's salad, and she ending up sending the salad back as the lettuce was wilted with way to much dressing. Even the au gratin potatoes, which seem to have a great review, were not what I expected with way to much onion in the potatoes. Overall, our experience was disappointing. And to top it off, the next morning we decided to try the restaurant again for breakfast, as it seemed to have good reviews only to end up with a rubbery hard omelet with lightly toasted toast that had no butter on it. Needless to say I doubt we would go back.

We hosted a Sunday birthday brunch for a friend and everything was great. We always like Downtown Elways for special events and often make a whole night/weekend of staying at the Ritz Carlton to enjoy properly.
We were lucky enough to get the large round table in their wine area-but overhead light was very, VERY bright and harsh, especially for 8 hungover people. However, they figured out how to dim it, and we were so grateful. Everybody's breakfast/lunch was delicious. My burger was a bit to undercooked, and they threw it back on the grill once the waitress noticed I wasnt liking the rawness so much. Anyway, great service and tasty food!

We took some friends to Elway's. They are newer to the area and hadn't eaten at a really good steak house, yet, in Denver. We have never been disappointed in Elway's, in the past. The steaks were still very good, this time. We also had oysters on the half-shell that were good. However, we had the potatoes au gratin and they were over salted, the mac and cheese was maybe a bit overcooked and the Brussels sprout has was not nearly as good as others we have had. The asparagus was fine, but it is hard to mess up.

My husband and I were stuck in Colorado during the bomb cyclone for 4 1/2 extra days. During our extended stay we also celebrated a wedding anniversary. With no prior knowledge we selected Elway’s for our dinner. Beginning to end, this was an exceptional experience. Our waitress Vanessa, Monica the somalier, food, and attention to our every need was a exceptional! What a wonderful night, thank you Elway’s for a night to remember.
