    Our menu choice? 8 ounce filet. The steak was treated with tenderness seeking preservatives - heavily coated in pepper - sous vide for hours if not days. (the effect being the same as if it had been boiled) Steak was barely warm - virtually flavorless other than the overpowering "crust" Fortunately we chose the least expensive offering - at $50 each In short - the cost was 10X compared to "ho hum" value and service. We enjoy good restaurants and are more than happy to pay $150 per person or more for interesting/delicious/well-prepared food. Elway's has chosen to go the industrial route - given that choice, they could learn from Outback, Texas Roadhouse, etc.

    Food was very good and service excellent. Really enjoyed the lamb fondue appetizer although one piece was small and overcooked. My steak was also over cooked but staff was able to deal with this very well and even comped some of our sides to make up for the inconvenience

    Too many times the servers asked how we are doing… if they see I need a drink that’s fine, but 8 times in 60 mins is a bit nuch, less American and more European

    We’ve stayed at this hotel before and also eaten at the restaurant before and last time we were very pleased so decided to book again. We were seated in the lower conservatory area. We ordered our drinks a soon as we sat down. Our appetizers arrived and we ate them but no wine. Twice our waiter came to check on us and noted that our wine wasn’t there. We even asked the girl who was refilling our water glasses to chase our wine. After 30 mins we asked the waiter to get the manager as we thought that would make our wine miraculously appear. A man who may have been a manger came over with the wine a few minutes later and seemed to blame everyone else for the 35 minute wait for our wine. He didn’t get the ticket ……… there’s something wrong with the cellar…… etc. When our bill arrived we were disappointed that there was no token of an apology represented on the bill so after asking the waiter he said “I was going to give you free desserts as a token of our apology but it seems you would rather leave”. We eventually received a 10% discount on the bill which equates to about half the cost of the wine. I feel that we should have been given the wine for free. Although we have visited Elway’s before this maybe our last visit to Elway’s in Vail as we were left feeling awkward and disappointed with the whole evening. Our waiter was very friendly and polite but I feel that we were forgotten about in the conservatory.

    Loved this absolute cracker of a restaurant for a sophisticated date night in the heart of Vail. Brilliant service from both waiter and sommelier. Stunning food; very generous portions. A super slick operation that’s a cut above most in the village.

    Excellent, friendly service from both the host and the wait staff and the food was delicious. I had a nice filet, perfectly cooked, and my daughter had delicious lobster tails. I quite liked the crab fried rice which I'd never had before and the pinot noir the waiter suggested was just right. We were relegated to the "kids room" as opposed to being seated in the main dining area even with an early (6:00 pm) reservation. We don't fuss about that but if you want to experience the full energy of the restaurant and feel like you're having a night out I'd recommend specifying a table in the main dining area.

    I ordered the lobster. One of the tails was pure mush. I didn’t ask for something to be done but was surprised that there was not even an apology. Very disappointed. Especially since I’ve been there many times. I expected more.

    The service and ambiance were excellent. All three of our entrees were good, but were not what we expected at the price level we paid. There are many other restaurants in the Vail/Beavercreek area at that price level with better food offerings.

    This was our second time at Elways so we were excited for another great meal. We were seated at a fantastic window table! 3 out of 4 of us eat steak which was why we came back. I do not eat red meat, so of course, I ordered the obligatory one chicken dish on the menu. To my astonishment, the waitress told me they were out of chicken! Our reservation was at 7:30pm and we even arrived earlier. I’m not sure how they could possibly run out of chicken so early. I ended up ordering an appetizer for my meal. The other 3 meals that were ordered were the filets, and all three requested them cooked medium well. Two out of the three were completely charred and only a tiny bit of them were edible. We told the waitress and she did not do anything about it. We also ordered a couple of sides. The mashed potatoes and mushrooms came completely covered in chives. No mention of that at all on the menu. We do not like chives so we tried to pick them out, but we couldn’t really enjoy them at all. The waitress ended up taking only the potatoes off the bill and told us she’d be bringing a dessert (which she never offered a menu or choice) we were grateful for the offer, and figured she’d bring something chocolate. The gesture was kind, but all of us don’t enjoy that, so common sense would be to ask. I truly thought a manager would come over as well. This post honestly sounds like we are super picky, but we aren’t at all. We are super chill and easy going. I hope next time we come back, we have a better experience..

    Food was very mediocre to bad -- my steak was way undercooked and my husband's steak was just not a good cut of meat. The crispy brussel sprouts side was terrible. We dine out very frequently and are willing to pay top dollar for meals but this one was very disappointing to say the least.

    We visited last night to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival, we landed in a booth that was fairly noisy. When I explained to our server, Cameron, he quickly moved us to an extremely quiet location. The level of service at the restaurant was amazing. Cameron listened to our wine tasting preferences and recommended a stellar bottle of Pinot Noir. Our food was fantastic (two filets, mashed potatoes, and baked potato). The meal was prepared perfectly, and the steaks were fantastic. I was born in Texas and grew up in Kansas City, so I know steaks. Kansas City could use an Elway's, but I don't think the Chief's Kingdom would be very receptive, which is unfortunate as Elway's is one of the best steakhouses we've visited. If you are looking for a great food experience in Vail, I'd recommend Elways' every single time. Ask for Cameron and tell him the Chief's fans from Kansas City sent you. Cameron is amazing at his job!
