    We had dinner and Brunch. Dinner was excellent. The lamb shank fondue was amazing. The dinner service was very good. The staff was attentive and the courses were delivered at a perfect pace. I would skip the brunch next time. The food was below average and they only seating available for Brunch is in the bar area.

    Brussels sprouts and potatoes were excellent. The steak was good but not any better than a steak from Texas Roadhouse. The bread was delicious. The butter did not seem like salted butter, it was pretty plain. Good experience. Our waiter was very nice and friendly.

Providing the highest level of hospitality is our priority, and I sincerely apologize for failing to meet your expectations.

    We are from Houston and we have absolutely excellent steakhouse restaurants, we drove from Houston to Beaver Creek Virgen a long ski vacations, we stop for two nights in Denver Downtown and our anniversary was next day so we made a reservation at Elway’s and we were very pleased with the service, absolutely at the very top. I ordered the Bison ribeye cooked medium & wife ordered the stack of Lamp medium rare to medium, Brusel sprouts and the lobster Mac & cheese, a bottle of French Merlot the desert was taken off our bill as a gesture because we were dinning there for to celebrate our anniversary. The Bison was so juicy and tender, with bits of burnt crusts from the grill, it was absolutely delicious, and the rack of lamb, was the best I tried ever, unfortunately it was only a couple of bites as wife didn’t want to share it…we definitely will visit their location in Vail and definitely will recommend this place in downtown Denver. It is located in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

    ELWAY'S DowntownResponded 1 day agoThank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, We hope you join us again and will strive each day to provide the best dining experience in town.

    Food was over cooked even though we specifically asked for medium rare. I have been to much finer steakhouses that were just as expensive. No reason to go back for a poorly cooked over priced dinner.

    Steak was really good but my son’s sea bass was under cooked and tasted a bit dated. Don’t expect fish funk at a place like this. All the did was comp his two beers and implied a free dessert but we passed. Thought drink prices were about 15-20% too high.

    Very expensive and not very memorable. Our meal for 2 was $400 including wine before tip. I want my socks to be knocked off for that. It was very meh. The Thai Chili Brussels were actually bad - no flavor much less Thai chili. Steaks were good but not great. Service as always was fantastic but honestly, I will not be going back. I made my reservation quite a ways in advance and requested quiet booth. We were sat at table next to large party doing shots. Overall, it was a very disappointing experience.

    If you're unaccustomed to find dining or gourmet steak houses, by all means visit. You'll enjoy yourself. If you do frequent fine dining establishments, don't bother. The food is under seasoned & mediocre at best. My medium-rare steak was delivered almost raw. Rather than tossing the steak & starting over, they refired my steak & brought back a piece of charcoal. The Ding Dong dessert, which I was really looking forward too, was ruined with dark chocolate sauce, white chocolate crumbles, & sour blackberries. The food will not meet the expectations of anyone who's dined at excellent steakhouses.

    Server was absolutely wonderful, it was our anniversary dinner and she was so attentive and sweet even offering us a dessert for our special night. Food was good overall but I recommend getting your choosing of sauce to go with it as it would have benefitted from some. Overall the night was amazing and my partner and I enjoyed ourselves immensely.

    We dined here for NYE. Our reservation was at 830pm, yet we didn't even get to order drinks until 915. Our table was in the middle of the room and we were ignored all night. It was insanely loud and it was not the high end steakhouse vibe we were hoping for when we stayed at the Ritz Denver. Dine somewhere else.

    Server Philip acted bothered when helping us throughout the night. We did not ask for much. From the moment we sat down he acted as if he did not want to be there. I get it… it’s a holiday… but we pay for an experience. We left with spending only around $100 because Philip could not have the time to come and let us order more. He lost this location quite a bit of money if he was doing this to every table.

    Went for Christmas brunch, at 11:30. They didn’t bother to mention that brunch ends at 10:30 (which is when most brunches begin). Seamus was our waiter - very friendly and knowledgable guy, walked us through wine tastings and menu options. Food was very very good, just not sure if it’s worthy of returning due to the prices.

    Can't go wrong with steak at Elways. The only thing I can criticize is that the seat cushions are not firm enough.
