Wow, this is my favorite steak house now. Far better food and service than other top tier steak houses. The price was very good considering the quality of food. We loved the Porterhouse, Filet, Duck Fried Rice, Onion Rings and Grilled Artichoke. Great special occasion restaurant located off the a Ritz Carlton lobby.

I brought a small business group for dinner on 8/18/14 and we very much enjoyed the experience. This was my first time in Denver and Elway's made my hosting role in a new city a big success. Food was as ordered with small exception of missing item but it was brought in short order. Nice bread basket of sourdough and... More

This review should be titled "Get a free meal at Elways". Party of 2, guests at Ritz-Carlton, nicely dressed, early for 8 pm reservation. Sit in the lounge or hover around the hostess station? Sit in the lounge and have a drink. Brought promptly and pleasantly. 7:55. Another party of 2 enters and is seated immediately. Hello we are still... More

Was in town for meetings - group went out for dinner. Restaurant had private rooms perfect for 20-25 people. Set menu items for large group which was good. Excellent service. Food was very good.

We've eaten here for breakfast once before, and Elway's did not meet our standards. We were staying at the Ritz for a Rockies game and decided to give it another try. Drats! Strike two!! Our expectations were high, especially after reading the great reviews from others on TripAdvisor. However, our experience was not good. We were seated fairly quickly, as... More

Great layout with an expanded bar and dining area. Service was attentive and friendly. Nice variety of dishes. Good spot for the business and after work crowd.

So, here is what happened.... We stayed at the Ritz Carlton Hotel which this restaurant, Elway's, is in the lobby.....we asked everyone at out hotel for the best restaurant recommendation and everyone said Elway's. We discounted it as it was the restaurant in the hotel and they were all programmed to say the same thing...then we started asking Uber drivers... More

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
