We frequent Shanahan's at least once a quarter and in the last few visits the food hasn't been the same. We love this place and certainly hope that things improve. I will say the drinks are always on point!!!

The "What would you recommend this restaurant for?" made me chuckle when I got to the "people watching" entry. While it's not necessarily a celebrity hangout as far as I know, the Shanahan family (Mike, son Kyle, and a bunch of others) were seated at the table next to ours. While we didn't want to disturb their evening, Mike did have a brief chat with my 11 year-old son on his way to the table.

As for the restaurant, it's become my favorite for special occasions. The food is spectacular and the service is impeccable. I didn't give five stars for ambiance because I prefer the multiple smaller rooms at Del Frisco. While both are large restaurants, Del Frisco feels a little more intimate, though Shanahan's definitely has the upper hand when it comes to the food.

The food and service was great, nice and clean. The only thing we didn’t like was the table was right by the bathroom, not a deal breaker just don’t think a table should that close to the urinals.

Robbie, the server, was fantastic. He knew his menu and that is very refreshing. It was our first visit and he was very helpful. The vegetarian dish, yes, I know this is a steakhouse, but...it could have been better and it would have been so easy to make it better. the bread is fantastic as was the French onion soup. My husband loved his steak and it is the first time in a long time he has had a steak anywhere and it was cooked to his specifications. The oak barrel aged old-fashioned was the best I have ever had anywhere. Thanks for a great evening!

Didn't like having to wait almost twenty minutes for a table when i made reservations a week before the dinner date. What's the point of reservations. I also didn't care for the tables that are right next to each other. Would have preferred a booth. Food was good but very over priced for a steak house. A martini for $18 is absolutely ridoculous.

Made reservation for a valentines dinner which staff was aware of. We were seated in the bar in a booth. Our waiter was awesome but it was extremely noisy! Ordered steak medium but came out medium rare. It was our first time there, not sure if we’ll go back.

Nothing gave us a wow factor. Spent way to much money at a place that we could have got the same service and same food at a red lobster or outback. Steak was bland. Lobster was basic. Service was poor. Definitely think things are overpriced based on what you get and service.

Our server was excellent and the food was also. My only complaint is the check in process. We made our reservation almost 2 months ago, got to the restaurant 5 minutes early and were told they were just waiting for some tables to get up which was fine. After we had been waiting about 15 minutes, so 10 minutes after our reservation we noticed that people were walking right into the restaurant and the hostess seating them immediately. While my husband and I and numerous other guests had been waiting. I have l noticed this before and realize that maybe it is a vip guest but it is very frustrating to make a reservation and have to wait when other guests are not having to wait

We celebrated Valentines Day on the 13th to avoid the crowds. I didn't know they have Valentines week from Saturday to Saturday. Shanahan's is so good that I guess you never avoid the crowds. Robbie our waiter was one of the best servers I have ever had. He was engaging, kind and paid attention to everyone at the table especially our 8 year old

Very nice setting! Quiet and super clean! Our server was named Jonathan, he was great! Always there to answer any questions we had and also brought out our desert with a candle for my wife’s birthday. I got the 12oz NY Strip which was decent. I wish I would of got medium rare! Overall a great place to go if you can afford to quite frequently. I will be coming back soon!

We had a gift certificate that was larger than our meal cost. The staff never did let us know how that was treated and if we used the excess in our tip ($10). But, we presented with a final bill for total cost. I hope to calculate a fair tip.

Really enjoyed the meal. They could turn the music down somewhat.

The steaks do not disappoint!! Amazing and perfectly done. Salad was delicious, as was the asparagus.
We were early for our reservation, so we sat at the bar. The (female) bartender did not greet us, scowled at us, and did not offer us a menu. We found one nearby and the other bartender was just fine.
With our dinner, we ordered a bottle of wine. It was one of the less expensive ones on the menu. Although it wasn't "bad", it definitely wasn't good. The waiter (who was awesome, by the way) asked if all was fine, and we said yes, but I don't know if we could have just said never mind on the bottle of wine, since it didn't taste like vinegar. We couldn't finish it, so took it home with a cork in it. The next day, it was positively bad and we ended up throwing out 1/2 a bottle. I have NEVER been unable to drink a glass of wine before - VERY disappointed.

Steaks were cooked perfectly, carpaccio was excellent and sides were very good. The service from Josh was absolutely outstanding. If you like Manhattans, as for the special cask. The only complaint was being seated 20 minutes late for our reservation; their system seems to be more like a wait list than a reservation. Considering this is a top-end steak place, the prices were not out of line.
