Retirement dinner with my friends

I celebrated my retirement with 4 other (male) friends. This was my first time at this Elway's location. The experience in general was very good. The meats got a lot of compliments. The vegetables were good. The wine list is huge. Our 2 waiters were very friendly. The price level in general is... read more

I had heard and read very good reviews and they were right: the food and service at Elway's are excellent. Our party included a child and we were surprised when they offered a children's menu. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the meat is so soft and tender that feels like it melts in your mouth. the side dishes... More

We had dinner at Elway's. My friend and I shared the Ribeye, which was cooked to perfection and delicious (left with a doggy bag too). Lot's of side options and appetizers to choose from. If you are a meat lover...you cannot go wrong with this place. The decor was dark but the lighting made it somewhat romantic. I would say... More

Went here with friends from graduate school days from many years ago. Always great to catch up and all the more fun to hang out together in an excellent restaurant. I had the mussels, which were to die for. Companions' meals looked equally delicious. Deserts were beautiful and delectable. Hope to return and know I will because I will be... More

Located in the Ritz Carlton Hotel in downtown Denver, this is a wonderful place to have that SPECIAL dinner. We were there with friends and family for a graduation. The service is absolutely outstanding. The wait staff is "always" around, but you don't notice them until your water glass is half full, or ready to order. To say upscale is... More

Great food, good service, very nice ambiance. They have a nice selection on the menu and the food is always good. The service/meal delivery is slow but you go for the experience, not fast food.

Had the opportunity to eat at this amazing restaurant with coworkers. From start to finish one of the finest restaurants I've enjoyed. The service was unmatched and the steak was one of the best I've had in the country. If you are ever in Denver I only recommend Elways.

Food and service were very good. Two attentive, but not overly attentive, waiters took great care of us. The seafood is extremely fresh and delicious. Lobster cocktail is my new best friend. Husband enjoyed the buffalo steak. Very well cooked and seasoned. Sophisticated (and fun) iPad wine list with great extra info on selections. The restaurant was large, but we... More

Was in town for business and our meeting was at this restaurant. It a very upscale establishment. The food was excellent, though the service time was compromised (apparently by a large party that was being serviced at the same time).
