All 4 of our steaks were cooked to perfection. Our waitress was excellent and made our special occasion more enjoyable. Shanahan’s is always our first choice for special occasions.
Thank you,

Staff were friendly and personable, service was leisurely and not rushed, food presentation was original and creative, and food taste and flavor were exceptional. Brief interactions with our server and sommelier indicated excellent staff morale, commitment to customer service and pride in their work.

Disappointing...Not the best experience for a restaurant that we normally love. We were seated on the patio during a monsoon. I assumed we would have been reseated inside due to the unexpected storm and asked the hostess. She just shrugged and apologized as she lead us through a maze of leaky tents. The storm was so loud that we couldn't hear each other talk. At one point, rain was hitting my shoulder and my feet were sitting in water. Our server never offered to move us inside. When our server got more tables, he disappeared. When a manager came by, he did get me a baked potato because the mashed potatoes had several peelings in them, which is not something that I personally like. At dessert time, the rain finally stopped. The server brought the desserts and never even asked us if we wanted coffee, just like we were on some assembly line. I am not sure we will be returning as there are other good steakhouses in DTC. The reason you go to a nice steakhouse is for the experience which was definitely missing on this trip.

What an outstanding evening! It was our 64th wedding anniversary that began with rose petals on the table and throughout the evening members of the staff from the one pouring water to the general manager came by to wish us "Happy Anniversary". The food was outstanding and the wine was very special. The shrimp appetizer, the Shanahan salad, the halibut, the petite filet, and "light and refreshing" lemon dessert meant we had a fun, delightful delicious evening. You spoiled us and we loved it!

We went to Shanahan's to celebrate our son's graduation from DU. It was a special night and Shanahan's did not disappoint. The food was excellent, but what made it extra special was the service our server, Adam, provided. He was just very patient with all the questions I had due to my allergies, very attentive and surprised our son with a treat at the end of dinner. It was just a nice little surprise. And btw, we were at another steakhouse a week ago and there's just no comparison. Thank you.

Was disappointed with our first time at Shanahan’s. My husband and I were celebrating our Anniversary. We were seated right away but we’re out all the way outside in the tent. The inside looked so nice also the outdoor patio. As we passed all that we ended at a table with tiny chairs that were worse than lawn chairs! I felt like a third class citizen, which I guess I was. I would suggest they not even have the tent area. I understand it makes them more money but the ambience is horrible! Will not be going there again. Elway’s is better! So disappointed!

I love this place. I go often with friends and family. This time the salmon was awful. I have never been disappointed with the food before but I was bummed. Otherwise, as usual, the service etc is exceptional!!

No question it is a very good steakhouse. However, years ago it was a special experience but this time was just a very good steakhouse. Might be too crowded and too noisy to have a special experience. Pricey as expected. Not certain why one needs to sell a one pound baked potato. Brussel sprouts excellent BTW.
