    Just “average” nothing stood out, we were surprised how greasy the food was. There are way better steakhouses and restaurants in the area so I’d recommend checking out another restaurant nearby.

    Service was very slow. We waited 40 minutes on our food and the steak came out overcooked. It actually had a portion that was burnt across the top. It took 10 additional minutes to get someone’s attention and at that point we were just ready to go. The restaurant has a great reputation, but our experience was not good. Very disappointing!

    The sides were very good however we thought our stakes were way over seasoned. For as nice of cut of meats as they have there is no reason to put that heavy of a salted season on them. It was a bit disappointing.

    Had the Turkey dinner, food was ok, warm but not hot, rolls were cold(not hot enough to melt butter). Coffee cold(first cup, ask for another, it was hot) Desert was the worst, seem like it came out of the box. It was still frozen. They took it off the bill. Staff was very nice

    Visited while on vacation. We heard we didn’t have to dress fancy and rolled in after a day of sightseeing and felt way under dressed. The staff was all super friendly and didn’t make us feel out of place. We are from CA where customer service has been on the decline. It was so refreshing to finally experience just decent common courtesy and customer service from a restaurant. Would highly recommend! Oh and the food was top notch delicious!

    Garrett was great! Definitely a top end server. He gave us a full breakdown of the menu along with bonus information such as where the steaks are from and the breed of the cattle. He was super thorough with our questions as well and great to converse with. At the end of our meal, the “Ding Dong” was strongly suggested and it honestly blew me away. Definitely something to split among 2 people. With the entrees, the Yukon gold mash potatoes were a must. Definitely the best mashed potatoes I’ve ever had. The filet was pretty good too! I was not a fan of the peppercorn sauce however. Only because I was expecting it to be creamier. Overall, I would 100% be back!

    Good, but not great. Better than the usual hotel restaurant, but certainly not what I’d consider “fine dining “. The server was average for a fairly expensive place. Tasty, but not exceptional food, and prepared appropriately. We had a nice booth , and reservations were honored. Although the receptionist acknowledged my wife’s birthday ( per Open Table prompt), nothing else ( server recognition or candle on dessert , etc) was. Would recommend with the above caveats.

    Our sides were brought out well after the meal was over but the manager was kind enough to remove the charge from our bill. Didn’t get the last two drinks we ordered. The server was incredibly nice and apologetic just seemed a little overwhelmed. He did really seem like he was trying his best.

    Not as stuffy (ambiance) or claustrophobic (crowded seating) as Maestro's or Capital Grill, so a more relaxed dining experience. Ruth's Chris pricing, on the high side, but the steaks are excellent and the side dishes are elevated. Interesting side note: heavy on the pretentious Scotch offerings, but surpringly limited on premium Bourbon offerings. Opposite of what I'd expected. But overall a very good dining experience.

    We went to Elway's after a Bronco game. We were late getting out of the stadium and after calling they were kind enough to hold our reservation even though we were 15 minutes late. Our waiter Stephen was absolutely the best. The food was excellent. The wine and cocktail selections were fabulous. It is a little pricey but for out-of-towner's you can't go to Bronco game and not eat at Elway's.

    We enjoyed Elways for Sunday Brunch. The mimosa was delicious. I asked for steak and eggs, which wasn’t on the menu, but I loved. The steak was cooked perfectly. It had a nice seasoning crust.
