Our server Dennis was outstanding. He had an excellent knowledge of fine food and wine and was so pleasant throughout our evening.

We weren’t impressed with this location given the past experiences we’ve had at elways in denver. The service left a lot to be desired which is a big contrast to the outstanding service we’ve had in Denver. A bit disappointing considering it’s a great steak house in one of the most beautiful mountain towns in CO.

Elways in Vail has clearly lost a step. Poor decision by hostess to split a large party between two tables with our table in between. Had to ask some rude foreigners to not talk across our table. Complete fail on what should have been a romantic dinner. Grown men in athletic shorts and women in t-shirts made it feel more like McDonald’s than a nice restaurant. Guess they just don’t care

We have eaten at Elway's many times and this was the first time we were disappointed. Service was a let down - for instance filling 4 of 5 our waters and never coming back to fill the 5th person's water. Absolutely do NOT recommend the grilled artichoke - terrible. The salmon and steak had a funny taste to it. Overall, it was just "off" from our normal trips to Elway's.

We had high hopes for Elway’s Vail. Our experience left a lot to be desired. First, they served us a basket of very obviously molded bread. They sent out a free appetizer for the inconvenience. I ordered a filet medium well and it was served rare. It took 20 minutes to get a new one, at which point my husband had finished all his food and has to sit waiting for me. The baked potato was very dry and hard, and not even warm enough to melt the cheese. For a $200 dinner we just expected so much better. Definitely not on par with the Denver Elway’s locations.

Bone-in Ribeye and wedge were great! I really liked the way the steak was cooked and seasoned. No problems.

Overall, heavily salted food in everything we ate. Not sure why they felt the need but it was. Also, despite the fact that there were not many people in the restaurant, they felt the need to rush us through all of our courses.

Perhaps Mr. Elway should check this out and help them get aligned with his other restaurants that don’t seem to have this issue?

Excellent last night dinner in Vail. The restaurant manager was very accommodating to get us a seat on a patio after a short wait and the food was outstanding. We had the artichoke dip, a filet and rack of lamb. Each dish was cooked to perfection with excellent flavor. Beautiful setting on the patio.

We spent my husband’s birthday and anniversary together at Elway’s Vail. The staff was so incredibly gracious and celebrated us! We loved each and every person who helped to serve us. The food was also incredible! Thank you, Elway’s Vail, for making our evening so special! We are incredibly grateful 😊

This restaurant missed the mark
My Salmon was undercooked
And sent back
And the rest of the meal was over priced
Food came barely warm

The best part about this restaurant was the host
Who was friendly and charming. He was very nice

Well received at host station; friendly, kind and accommodating of our casual attire after driving 10 hrs! Prime rib and filets some of the best we’ve ever had...seasoned and cooked to perfection! Waiter was excellent. Great bar menu with some out of the box cocktails. Value? Well, it is Vail and didnt expect differently; however, it was on the spendy side.

This was one of the best meals I've ever had in my entire life. Each bite was incredible. Our server's were on top of everything. The restaurant was practicing social distancing perfectly. We were able to sit and enjoy our meal without any distractions. Elway's is by far one of the greatest restaurants in CO. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful setting. Food was fine, but not a true steakhouse. More of a nice restaurant with steakhouse prices. I am sure pandemic has limited menu and caused lower quality. Burger was best thing we had.

Unfortunately we did not have the best experience this year. It was our anniversary and we let them know but the did not acknowledge it throughout the dinner. However, we saw others receive champagne and dessert for theirs. We have come here every year for our anniversary and this experience has made us look for another destination next year. Food was good, service ok at best

First of all the place is hard to find. Should have a sign that says “this Way to Elways.” The steaks at our second visit we’re just ok - both had Portherhouse and they were completely different (bone on one was not a T). The service was very good though. Food was so so but not for $100 + per person and that’s without cocktails and desserts.
