Sunday Brunch LOADS of FOOD

Brunch at Elways was good -- average. I ordered the Eggs Benedict with avocado and tomatoes. The hollandaise sauce was pretty nasty. There was too much of it and it was obviously not from scratch. My husband ordered a Cobb Salad. We were stunned by the amount of food. Way too Much! We did... read more

Service was slow. Food was disappointingly average. For the price you expect awesome food. Elway's at the airport is excellent, maybe they send the chef downtown to the airport for training.

The food was great but the service was excellent. Recommendations made by waiter were spot on. We were two couples and each couple shared an entree and all four shared an appetizer. Orders were cooked as requested and extra plates etc. were given without asking.

There were six of who wanted to go someplace we have not been before. For some reason, our reservation did not show, and the two young hostesses were totally confused about what to do. When I suggested that we could leave, they suddenly found us a table right away! All except our daughter who is a vegetarian, ordered steaks. They... More

To be an upscale place and have plastic flowers in the restrooms, please you can do better than that!

Went to Elways in the Ritz for a business dinner. Had the filet. I'm pretty sure you cut this steak with a fork. The most tender steak I've ever eaten. Others in the party said the same thing about their steaks as well. We had pretty much every side dish and they were also excellent. Standard steakhouse atmosphere. Only thing... More

We planned a weekend in downtown Denver and treated ourselves to a stay at he Ritz Carlton and what we expected, a terrific meal at Elway's. We checked trip advisor and almost all of the ratings were excellent. Well, we must have been that 1 in a hundred. We both ordered a glass of wine and I ordered filet, twice... More

Had some drinks and appetizers while watching the NFL playoffs at the bar. The drinks were great and tasty... The jumbo shrimps... Are enormous. Would visit again.
