Monica, truly Sommelier, is fantastic. She knows her wines and can speak to the differences by year and region.
Service is always outstanding at Elway's, with a warm, comfortable atmosphere.

This is my third time at an Elway’s. I have been to the downtown location twice now and the airport once. My second visit to the downtown location was quite disappointing for my father and I. We made reservations weeks out and were seated in a far corner in big chairs, not even a booth or real table. Meanwhile, the restaurant wasn’t even half full. We ordered the calamari for a starter and was not informed that half of the dish included fried green olives (dumpling style). Drinks were good, but the bread that was requested came out to be basic dinner rolls, meanwhile we saw other tables receiving an assortment of artisan breads. My file was excellent and the lobster Mac and cheese side was delcious. My father ordered a strip which was rubbed in something strange. The service was okay, however our server was very snappy. I understand that restaurants are struggling right now given they are coming back from the pandemic, but for the price of this place and the name, it was disappointing this go around. I’ll try the airport one for breakfast, and hopefully that goes well.

Well, when the best thing was the cauliflower side at a steakhouse, it’s not very good. Been to Elways cherry creek a few times (been a while). First time at downtown. 22 ounce bone in rib-eye. Chewy. Highly doubt it was Prime, marbling (or lack thereof) would strong suggest it was choice. The sides shrunk considerably, no longer really shareable but given Covid and the struggle, this wasn’t the reason for the review. It was because no one thought their steak was great. Will not be back.

Great food and service. We stayed at the Ritz-Carlton to which this restaurant is attached. My husband ordered the bison ribeye and we decided to split it. It was good size portion even then. My daughter ordered a NY strip also good size portion. My son had the salmon. All the entries were cooked and seasoned perfectly. In addition we shared an order of asparagus, lobster Mac and cheese and truffle fries. It was all delicious but there was plenty left over. My only regret was the waste left behind as the hotel room did not have a refrigerator or microwave.

As with all steak houses of this caliber I always feel the high prices and large portion sizes are unnecessary. Still, as a splurge for our family, the meal was super enjoyable.

I had an excellent time and a delicious dinner. I went with the basics. I started with the house salad which was an excellent blend of veggies and just the right amount of cheese egg and bacon on top. I had the NY Strip and it was seasoned and cooked perfectly. I will say that it was smaller than it used to be. They even took the weight of it off the menu. But it was just enough. In these times, I can hardly fault them. I’ve been there several times before and will continue to go there!

I would definitely recommend Elway's for the food and the bar scene is great. I would tell people to try it after Covid as the service was not that good. When we arrived, there was no one at the front to check in for our reservation, so we went and sat at the bar after waiting for 10 minutes. The bartender then had to walk us over to our table, and the sommelier waited on us before our waiter eventually showed up. Maybe they are light on staff right now, but was definitely unimpressed with the service given how expensive the food is.

Covid is the ultimate joy sucker. While they are trying they are clearly understaffed. The food was good but the steaks arrived cold. We never had anyone refill our water glasses. We will be happy to return once all dining restrictions are lifted.

Good food and great service. It is a lobby restaurant and had the ambiance of a lobby restaurant. Lights were a bit bright and tables did not feel very private at all. Good food though. And service was also very good.
