Great steak but you pay for it!

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... read 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.

we had a great dinner. Started off with the lamb chop appetizer which was awesome. Had the bone in rib eye, which was excellent. A bit pricey, but very good food and service.

We had reservations for Elway's on a Saturday night before Christmas. The service, the food and the decor was 2nd to none. There are no small portions here. In fact one of us could have not ordered and we still couldn't eaten everything but most of all it was delicious! Steak, lamb all the sides were fabulous! Don't miss this... More

We visited this restaurant on a Wednesday, and had booked well in advance, which I could tell was smart - the place was fully booked! Nevertheless the service was fast and high level, and the menu was impressive - something for everyone, and all sizes. It could be good to know that the starters are big, my Lobster Salad had...

Being on a budget, this was our one meal splurge allowance. We sat in the lounge area and enjoyed college football on the big screens. Certainly one I was glad I experienced as an out of towner.

I can only say that this was the most amazing tender favorable filet I have ever had. It was incredible. Everything we had was good... sides, drinks, steak and even the little gingerbread men they passed around. We didn't make a reservation so we had to get a table in the bar. Which was very nice. The service was great... More
