In Denver for conference, was taken to Elways for dinner. By far the best meal I had on this trip. The bone-in ribeye was awesome. Cooked perfectly with a little carmalized char on the outside from the rub. Best piece of meat I have ever had.

Been to Elway's Downtown 3 times so far, and every time has been an exceptional experience for us. Located in the Ritz-Carlton, the valet staff is always friendly and professional. The hostess is welcoming and we have never had to wait more than 3 minutes to be seated. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with a giant bar area. Every time... More

First trip to Denver and ate here thinking it was another athlete-basic overpriced food place. It was connected to the Ritz and we had a food credit. Let me start with the exceptional service that starts at the hostess desk, Ashley, our server was fantastic, friendly and helpful. We ordered the porterhouse, scallops, asparagus and twice baked potato. The seasoning... More

The area around the Ritz is a little sketchy, but Elway's was much better than we anticipated when we decided not to leave the hotel. The wine list was really good and extensive. The appetizers were really good, as were our entrees. Despite being only one of a few tables occupied for dinner, it was pretty loud due to bar... More

I hate super in-your-face wait staff. This restaurant had the nicest and most professional staff. Our waitress was incredible. The food was very good, although if you are going to order well-done meat - insist they make it well done. Mine had to go back for more cooking.

Three of us arrived at 6:30 at the Downtown site on a Saturday thinking that no reservation would make this a wait. Quite the opposite- we were seated immediately. The service was impeccable. My wife had the $29 sirloin- best ever. My son the $40 New York cut- best ever. My 1/2 grilled chicken was overly seasoned and too salty-... More

I never leave feedback for restaurants, but mine and my husband's experience at Elway's yesterday afternoon was enough for me to speak my mind. Upon arrival, we were greeted at sat immediately at a table of our choice. We chose to sit outside on the patio, which was clean with plenty of shade. We ordered our food and 1 soda... More

Fresh Colorado lamb all the way. Perfectly cooked and seasoned, melt in your mouth tender, fantastic service and the best long island iced teas west of Long Island! Oh yeah, and the steaks are good too. The sides, fantastic. Try the lamb fondue appetizer. Different but still very good.

My favorite steak place for reliability is Ruth Chris. I have eaten at Elways enough to come to appreciate its reliability as well. Very flavorful meal that you can count on every time.
