Very disappointed to say the least. Have been wanting to dine here for a long time. Finally back in Denver with some friends and recommended we eat there for the bday celebration.

Service was ok, we have two working with us -One was great and very attentive, the second was slow and forgot everything we requested. Frustrating.

Food was not good. I ordered the lamb and it was over cooked and dry, the side dishes were terrible (Brussels sprouts, Yukon potatoes, cauliflower, asparagus). Should have listened to others. These were not good and a waste of money. Wife’s filet was good and friends dishes were satisfactory (my strip, ribeye).

Dessert was the best part (cookies, cheesecake).

All in all, there are several other steakhouse options in Denver that have better food and much better value. I would not recommend this location.

My wife and I shared a salad, steak, baked potato, and two drinks. For $150 (includes tip), the steak was below average. Do $55 filets have 1/4 fat?? Apparently this one did! Outstanding service (way to go Adam!) and the ambience is top notch. But you can't serve that kind of filet at that kind of price with that quality and expect a good review. Our normal go-to place is The Famous in Colorado Springs. The food is MUCH better. Sorry Elways - we love ya' - but don't do that . . .

On the rare occasion i end up in Denver, Elway's is a must. It's a little bit on the noisy side. But, the decor, great service, and good food overcomes that. Visiting Elway's in Denver is always a requirement to stop at.

We had a party of 3 and all ordered a filet in which we were going to request medium. Our waiter suggested median well which would still be pink center. Needless to say all of our steaks were burnt and over cooked. Just a bad experience when you pay $40 for a cut of meat.

I frequent Ruth’s Criss often and have never tried Elways and will not return. However, I was traveling from CA.

My wife and I dined at Elways for a special occasion and it was fabulous.
We both had the Filet, hers medium, mine medium rare.
Hands-down the best steak we have ever had.
I'm still day dreaming about the taste and texture of that steak 3 days later!

This is the first time that we had eaten at this Elway's location, and we enjoyed it. We each had an appetizer (1/2 dozen oysters for me and chicken corn chowder for my husband) then split a wedge salad. My husband had a NY strip steak and I had the farm salmon, both of which were very good. I appreciated how the waiter told me that the chef cooks the salmon so that it's pretty rare in the middle; I like my salmon either raw or cooked through, not charred on the outside and raw in the middle. The waiter said he would let the chef know that I wanted it cooked to the point of being flaky, and that's the way it arrived. Which made me happy.

 (Miami)·Dined on October 22, 2017

Have been here many times; something has changed. Poor service on a night that was not very busy; their server team was tostally out of synch and would disappear for 10 minutes at a time. Drinks were watered down and even the steaks were not that good. My wife’s steak came out raw but no one asked us for 10 minutes how the steak was. This was a $400 bill that felt like a hotel chain restaurant. I complained to the manager who took my name and gave me the general manager’s card (thanks, like telling me to tell someone who cares). I have not heard from anyone at the restaurant since then. We will not go back, ever!

I was very impressed with the outstanding service we received at Elway's. I was also very impressed with the appetizers as well as the main entrée. Went with some friends for a double birthday whilst we were visiting Denver and everyone was more than satisfied with the atmosphere, food and the waiting staff. Nothing but positive marks. Will definitely revisit when in Denver again.
