My wife and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary am here at Elway’s. We looked over the menu prior to our arrival and decided on the short rib and the salmon. Unfortunately, we were told they were out of the Short rib. After explaining our desire to our waiter, he came back with great news. They were able to locate a special order for us. This made our special night even more memorable. The food was and service were top tier. We will definitely return.

Not impressed with the service or ambiance. The food was great, but the ambiance lacked that spark that you would expect out of a $400 meal, e.g. a lack of memorabilia of Elway or the Broncos.

It took 45 minutes for our order to be taken, and an additional 45 minutes to get our food. If it were a full room, i would let it go a bit. It appeared that all the tables around us were experiencing the same thing., but there really weren’t that many tables. The “Seafood Tower” was disappointing. I’ve had much better for close to the $69 price. Other than the very sparse “seafood tower” the food was very good. Steaks were cooked very well and those who did not have steaks really enjoyed their meal. Not sure we would have ordered the Mimosa for $50 had we known the price. Dom Perignon is not something we would generally purchase, especially in a Mimosa. The staff was very friendly.

Wow! In the worst way, I have no idea why this place has such high rating it was just awful. This restaurant is the absolute definition of mediocre, however I will give the staff credit they were a 10 but the food was so terrible I would never go back. If I were Ritz Carlton I would be embarrassed to have this restaurant associated with my name.

Love Always - always go eery time in Denver - took a party there Friday night - food was great! Drinks were terrible - first cosmopolitan ok - second sent back, third we just dealt with - it is beyond me that this caliber of restaurant can't make the most basic cocktail - the waiter was average at best.

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.
