We had a great time and the service was a 10.
I love going here because it is so close to where I live .
I would like to see some variations in the salads. The menus has been the same since they opened .
I love seeing the owner there every time I go in. He is out in talking and greeting his guests. This is terrific PR..

Great experience and food. Sara was attentive and knew her trade. The only little issue was on the $150 Seafood tower for 4, I would expect more that 4 small king crab leg segments.

Steak was excellent; however, Caesar salad was at best mediocre as were side dishes of creamed spinach and Lyonnaise potatoes. Overall, a very costly meal that I would judge to be a very good steak, but I was not impressed with any other dishes that I ordered. I believe that my other three guests shared in my general observations and my review of our dining experience. Wine selection was excellent for those who drink wine and cocktails were excellent albeit relatively high priced.

The food was excellent and one of the best steaks I had in a long time. The time to get our meal was not good we had to wait almost 1 hour for the food.

It was great food all the way around though.

We had a 7:15 reservation. They did not seat us until 8:05. Apparently this is how they do things. They did not applogize and everyone in the waiting area were seated 45-1 hour after their reservation. Not a great way to run a business. Other steakhouses do no do this.

Even though I'm NOT a Broncos fan, this was a very good steakhouse. Neat memorabilia of Broncos lore and White House visits after Super Bowl wins. There was a little snafu when they sat my business guest at a separate table. After that, all was great. Very good food, good service, and a extensive wine list. This place is not for everyday dining since the price tag is not modest. The food is awesome but you pay for the great service and delicious food.

 (Vancouver)·Dined on December 7, 2017

We love to dine at steak-houses and Shanahan's is consistently fantastic! Although my husband and I love to sit at the bar to eat dinner together, side-by-side, we dined at a table this last visit (we go here regularly, it's worth it!). I had requested a booth for 'date night' and Shanahans' didn't disappoint - we had a really spacious booth on the far side of the restaurant and it was so romantic. Service was impeccable (as always). The tuna tartar appetizer is outstanding. The best in the city to date. Sides are delicious (the hoisin Brussel sprouts are not to be missed!). Hubby always gets the Wedge and it comes with lovely big chunks of blue cheese. Martinis are ICE cold and perfectly shaken. The Som is top-notch and helped us chose a beautiful bottle of Opus --- and the carrot cake was very tender, moist and more than enough for 2. GO HERE, eat meat, and enjoy an awesome evening!!!

The occasion was Birthday celebration for a dear friend and cousin. Shanahan’s staff made it very special from the Valet, hostess, waitress and the rest of the crew.
Desert was by far the favorite for all of us, we ordered every plate in the appetizers section.
We sat in the bar area, so the atmosphere was very nice and upbeat which ads to the celebration.
Thank you for making the celebration even better.

Even though the steaks were extremely tasty, the tables were set way too close together. My husband and I were bumped at least 20 times during our dinner because of the tables closeness. Way too many large tables and the noise level was above any comfort zone. Yelling across the table to carry on conversation is not my choice of comfort. Too bad!!!

My wife and I celebrated our 22nd anniversary. It was our first trip to Shanahan's. We found the staff to be very friendly. Our waitress was very helpful and her service was very good. Our food was good but not outstanding. My wife and I will never to return to Shanahan's because of the music that you play. It is not dinner music. It ruined what should have been a wonderful night.

I usually don’t eat steak out at a restaurant, because I prefer how we prepare them at home, and am often disappointed at a restaurant, even the top steakhouses. But given that it was our anniversary, I decided to give the ribeye (cooked “Black and Blue” or “Philadelphia” style) a try. The truth? Best steak I ever had. And my wife’s NY strip is definitely in her top 3, and she orders steak more than I. Besides that, the atmosphere is classy and cool, and the waitstaff is attentive and friendly. What’s not to love?

Our server was not very attentive and would be looking in some other direction anytime she addressed our table. Food was great, with the exception of the Shanahan’s salad which had no flavor and the bacon, although presented nicely, was completely impractical and had to be eaten separately. For these kinds of prices though, I expected the service to be much better

The steaks were either over or under cooked. The cake was dry and tasted a week old. The salad didn’t have dressing. Our table wasn’t ready and we had to wait 20 minutes. And the request for a birthday celebration was either forgotten or ignored. Overall there are other steak places with better food for better prices.

We have gone to Shanahan’s a few times for various special occasions. This time it was an Anniversary. When I made the reservation I was asked and told them it was an anniversary dinner. They had the table set and there were rose petals spread about the table. A nice touch. The service was excellent as it always is. The food was prepared with great care and was delicious. We were allowed to take our time and weren’t ever made to feel rushed. We ordered the appetizers and had time to eat them and talk. The entree was delivered hot and fresh and the sides were excellent. Dessert was served along with a beverage, they have a great list of after dinner drinks available. The wine list is extensive so you can pick a nice wine to go with your meal. We will be back to what I think is one of the best Steak houses in the Denver area.
