    The rib eye was quite good—even if it came out a bit undercooked. The salmon was outstanding. I decreased the rating because the calamari was very greasy as were the Brussel sprouts.

    We had the crab cake for the appetizer which was OK. It wasn’t of the lump crab cake style which I would have expected at a restaurant like this. We both had steak which again was OK but not up to the standards I would have expected. Maybe it was that my expectations were at a higher level. But we could have gotten similar quality at most other steak restaurants. And at these prices, we expected better.

    We were very disappointed in the quality of the food. The descriptions didn't match with what we were served. The wedge salad listed blue cheese on the menu and was served with cheddar cheese swimming in ranch dressing. The Oscar had more chunks of raw onion than crab and the creamed spinach had a vinegar-based sauce - no cream. Our steaks - we all ordered the same 16 oz. ribeye - were significantly different sizes on the plate. This was an exceptionally poor value for the money.

    Louis and Scott were an incredible duo, creating an unforgettable experience. From start to finish it was an extremely fun and delicious dinner. Scott's knowledge of the menu items paired with Louis's background as a Sommelier, pairs for an epic experience. Thank you so much to both of you guys!

    When it comes to fine dining, Elway’s is my favorite. The filet mignon absolutely melts in your mouth — you almost don’t even need a knife to cut it. For the sides, we got the potatoes au gratin and lobster mac and cheese, which are equally delicious. It’s pricey .. so I only go for special occasions. But it’s always so delicious, and I know I’ll be back next time I have something special going on.

    Went for Fathers Day. Got there 30 mins before our reservation and ended up sitting at the bar. The drinks tasted great, they were made quickly and correctly. We both got steaks and they were probably the best tasting steaks we have ever had. The lobster Mac and cheese was a little on the dry and not creamy side. But still good. The Calamari was unique and sooooo good. Their was deep fried olives and baby corn in it which was insanely good. Overall the dinner was great.

    It has gone down hill. The service was terrible. Wrong orders. Items showing up randomly. Took 20+ for drink orders. I understand the price increase based on inflation etc but this is a waste of money. I could have made a better steak and sides for 20% of the cost if I shopped at King Soopers and did it at home.
