We started at the bar with a great wine selection. Very romantic setting with decor and lighting. We ordered the filet and it was wonderful. Tender and cooked to request. The flavor and texture was out of this world. Your wallet may not thank you but your taste buds will! You will remember your evening for years to come.

I was part of a business party of 10 who dined here. Everything was top notch: atmosphere, wait staff (Jan was outstanding!), hostesses, wine list, food, restrooms, etc. We had calamari and lamb chops for appetizers and the chops were the best I've ever had. Everyone in the group raved about the food quality, including the scrumptious desserts. Yes, it's... More

My sons took me to Elway's for my 70th birthday. Everything was superb. The people who took care of us made us feel we were the only customers in the place. Everything about the meal, especially the steaks, was absolutely perfect. It's expensive but not ridiculous and it was worth it to have a complete meal that was perfect in... More

My husband attended a business function the night before at Elways and highly recommended it. The next day I decided to have lunch here. I ordered the Cherry Creek Salad, which contained spinach, chicken, cherries, dates, pistachios and cheese with an apple cider vinagrette. It was tasteless. I ordered extra dressing just to get some flavor, but it still did... More

I admit that I was a bit of a skeptic when this place was recommended. Often places named for athletes are not known for great food. Elways is different. The food and service are fantastic. The corn chowder soup was creative and delish, my filet was cooked perfectly and the potato was creamy perfection with a perfectly salted skin. If... More

Usually these sports personality steak houses are generally disappointing but Elway's was very different. Great look and feel to restaurant, excellent staff and terrific menu. Prices were quite reasonable with many unique appetizers and sides. Steaks were great! Id absolutely go back. Great business dinner go to if your in town with clients.

I booked a birthday dinner here last week and it was much better than expected. This restaurant is located within the fabulous Ritz Carlton Hotel in downtown Denver. First, they went out of their way to make sure I got my preferred seating time. Complimentary VIP parking for all. The atmosphere is both elegant and chic and the personnel were... More
