    We arrived at the restaurant, and the hostess stated, “we have a special table for you.” She sat us near a table of about 15 (which is fine). The table of 15 arrived. There were about 8 tween/teen girls that ordered one basket of fries to share. They were on their phones, screaming/giggling, getting up and running back and forth to show each other the content on their phones (while the adults did nothing). It got so loud that my husband and I couldn’t even hear each other. It was distracting and ridiculous. I’m not sure what was “special” about this table. At this point, someone should have asked the girls to remain seated. They were blocking the servers from coming back and forth to the area. Even our server agreed that “romper room” was too loud. The calamari and beet salad were GREAT! My husband ordered the ribeye, and it was mediocre. The sea bass tasted very “fishy.” Our server was absolutely fantastic (given the circumstances)!

    Had dinner on a Thursday evening for a party of 4. We had made reservation about 3 weeks prior to ensure a good table since it was a special occasion. We called to request a corner table twice. When we arrived hostess sat us in a booth which wasn’t very comfortable and said they had nothing else. This perplexed me because we had reserved so far in advance but we settled for the booth to avoid a wait. Our server Bojan was very attentive and friendly. His helper Julieta was also very friendly and made sure to check on us regularly which we really appreciated. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and took some time to chat with us about the wine we ordered. Two of us ordered filet mignon which were cooked perfectly however; I ordered the ribeye charred and rare on inside (Pittsburgh style) but when I received the steak it was not charred and inside was more of a medium plus. Bojan quickly corrected the matter and had another steak made for me. When it arrived it was as I had ordered it originally but by that time the rest of our party were almost finished with their meals. It did take quite long to have another steak made. For dessert we had chocolate cake which was delicious. We were celebrating two anniversaries but no effort was really made to acknowledge this occasion especially with the delay in recooking steak we certainly thought a complimentary dessert may be offered. Overall this is a decent place and service was impeccable but with so many other choices especially in Vail area one would think that if a restaurant calls themself a steakhouse more of an effort should be made for steaks to be cooked to perfection the first time they are ordered. If we return it would be because of the great service we received from Bojan and the others assisting him but kitchen staff should really address these issues to ensure more of a flawless experience.

    We really loved our meal at Elways. Steaks, apps and sides amazing. Wine list is extensive and the som was very helpful. Service was attentive and dining area was appropriately upscale without being stuffy or sterile. We look forward to returning for lighter bites at the bar - the burgers and soups also looked delicious.

    My wife and I went for an early Valentine’s dinner. Everything was excellent, the wine, the appetizer, main dishes, the service was fantastic. However there was a large party next to us with about 10 small children. The adults were seated on one end of the table, and the children on the opposite end. The children were screaming at the top of their lungs, throwing glasses, silverware, menus, and anything else they could access on the floor. They were clearly disturbing every person in the restaurant, and yet their parents made no attempt to control or discipline their children. I feel the manager should have or could have asked to speak discreetly to the parents about this, but I only observed wait staff interacting with their table. When they left it looked like a frat party had been held there.

    We normally give Elway’s 5 stars but not this time. They have changed the menu and none of our favorites remain. No lamb chops unless you want it with fondue???? My favorite, the steak tacos are GONE. Our waiter was excellent even though we were disappointed. What we had was good but didn’t wow us like our previous 10+ years of visits this time of year.
