Wagyu NY Strip was fabulous! Chilled Lobster were overcooked and chewy.

Came to Denver from South Carolina and was told I had to try shanahans. I was seated beside a loud and very vulgar table at one point one of the people at the table had to be toted out drunk. Very hard to celebrate a nice birthday dinner with that going on beside you. Wish we had ate somewhere else.

The food was as usual....outstanding! Everything was delicious and prepared wonderfully! Our server seemed impatient and rushed with us. While he had to wear a mask, making communication somewhat difficult, he also didn’t exude personality He wasn’t rude but seemed disinterested in us. His level of attentiveness was lacking. When we were first seated, he took a drink order quickly but we sat for a very long time before we saw him again to place an order for appetizers. When we had a few questions about entrees or sides, he appeared irritated. We weren’t being overly needy, just routine questions. In all fairness, it was a Friday evening at peak time. I understand the pressures of serving multiple tables. However, I expect more from a restaurant of this caliber. Also, my sister, a vegetarian specifically requested her salad be served with the table’s other entrees. It was not. All in all, our birthday dinner celebration was very nice. The atmosphere was pleasant, and the complimentary birthday chocolate mousse was a nice touch. Of course I will go back again. It is a unique and special place.

I was taken out for my birthday, and Shanahan’s didn’t disappoint. From the moment we arrived, we were treated as if we were being invited into someone’s home. Everything from start to finish was great and it was cooked to perfection. Nick, our waiter gave great suggestions regarding drinks and main courses and gave a flawless level of service. Even though this was for a special occasion, I would not hesitate to return again for another evening out! Bravo!

We had a FABULOUS dinner for my husbands 50th birthday. He said his steak was now his #1 of all steaks he has had in his life LOL.
Service was exceptional!
Thank you for a wonderful meal! Your restaurant is always consistently great and that is super appreciated!

The service was top notch and the food was wonderful. Everyone who helped was very nice and very professional. My girlfriend and I split the Tomahawk Steak and it was one of the best steaks we have ever eaten. We will definitely be back and now have a new restaurant to celebrate our special occasions.

It was our anniversary, received the worst service at a steakhouse we ever received, ordered wine and the server brought us back the wrong kind and didn’t present the bottle so we had no idea until she was gone for 30 minutes and I had to get up to refill my own glass and noticed on the bottle the variety was incorrect. Noise was a little loud for 6pm, anniversary dinner. Food was good but service sucked. She never asked about our anniversary, just took our wine order and food order. Nevermind about a two bite check for salads, entrees or desserts. Couldn’t wait to get out of there. Won’t be returning.

This was my third time going in but first time for Easter and they didn't disappoint, the food was amazing, the service was amazing, the atmosphere was amazing and the best part is they let you hold and try on the rings from the Super Bowls that Mike Shanahan won. They also have the trophies from the Super Bowls that you can hold and take pictures with. Overall the experience was amazing and like I said they never disappoint I think they even stepped their game up since the last time we went.

We went to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were looking for the whole experience of enjoying a high end restaurant. We decided on outdoor seating because the website showed what looked like an amazing patio. We were stuck in a tent outside of the tent that was out side of the patio. We were very disappointed that we paid a very pretty penny for ok steaks and got stuck in a tent with little heat and patio chairs that are less quality then the ones we have in our backyard.

Great venue for special occasions. The food is always excellent, service was great again, and wine list is unsurpassed. The venue is nice, even the outdoor seating is up to par. Love how everyone waiting on us recognized the anniversary rose petals and made sure to say something.

A bit disappointing, given Shanahan's reputation. We were seated near a table of 8 people who had obviously been overserved alcoholic beverages; as they were very noisy and rude. Staff was aware but failed to address the issue. We did not receive cutlery and napkins until I requested them (after about 15 minutes and having been served bread and drinks). Food quality was average, nothing to write home about. Drinks were heavy on the alcohol and not balanced. Never saw anyone from management touching tables during our entire stay. Overall, I doubt we will return.

Disappointing visit. I typically dine here when in town for work, given its proximity to my hotel, and the steaks and atmosphere are always great. But this visit was less than appealing, and I'm likely to dine at Eddie V's or Ruth's Chris going forward. Shanahan's escargot tasted on the brink of being spoiled, and the octopus and lobster/crab appetizer were both just average. Not sure I would recommend clients or staff here over the other steak options nearby, given this visit.

They've done a great job of bringing as much of the "vibe" and magic of Shanahan's without the crowds (and energy it provides) as possible considering the ongoing pandemic.

This is my favorite restaurant in Denver. They never disappoint! Amazing, phenomenal food, service, everything. It's worth every penny when you know you can expect excellence. If I had to give one critique it would be table lighting. It was so dark I actually had to pull my phone out to read the menu. It was sort of funny though. We came back a month later and sat in the bar area which is brighter but still pretty dim.

Tent seating was very loud but understand that the tents are really beyond the control of the restaurant. It was my first visit and I had high expectations which were mostly met thanks to the awesomely prepared steak. However, the sides and desserts were not worth the calories. Our wait staff was not terrible but also not awesome.
