Birthday Dinner to Remember -- with an Avalanche (game, that is)

We've been to Elway's Downtown as guests at the Ritz Denver (one of our all-time favorite hotels), but we'd not been for a special celebration nor had we taken guests with us. We had a spectacular meal with my brother and nephew (13) as well as our young daughter, all to celebrate my birthday. We... read more

I ate here for my birthday. It was a last minute choice and I'm so glad that I chose this spot. Everything was amazing! The service is what can be expected from Ritz-Carlton. I told the bartender that I liked mojitos and to surprise me with different flavors which were all fantastic. My group tried the chicken, lamb chops, steak,... More

Let me start off by saying the food here is very good. My primary concern with this visit was the service. We were visiting for our wedding anniversary and I had specifically mentioned this when I booked the reservation. Upon arrival it took several minutes for a server to come greet us and somehow we ended up with 3 different... More

This was my first time eating at Elway's and I have to say it will definitely not be the last time! The only complaint that I have is the fact that the food is so expensive you would think that you would get a little more. The side dishes were so small and not very filling. Our waiter recommended ordering... More

Ok, let me start off -- this place is fairly pricey. If you are trying to find a good steak at a reasonable price -- this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for an incredible steak -- and not worried about the price, than this place is legit!! I had the bone in ribeye. This... More

Husband and I had ballet tickets for Shen Yun and we live 1 1/2 north of Denver. Horrible traffic delays, late for our dinner and they held our table for us. I looked at the menu on line and ordered their african rock lobster as an appetizer, prime rib and everything was fast when we got to the restaurant. We... More

I recently met a few coworkers at Elways for drinks on a Friday night. Most of the group was staying on site at the Ritz and trickled into the bar over 20 minutes. The others who were not staying on property were valet parked for no charge and quickly shown into the restaurant. The bar staff was great in handling... More

The staff is as wonderful as the food. Everyone is so friendly and genuine. We ate there two nights in a row in the bar since we were staying at the hotel, and enjoyed our time there immensely. The food was great, I had a filet on top of the wedge salad.

The service was average at this type of restaurant. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were dressed a little nicer due to the atmosphere but many of the other patrons were dressed in jeans and tshirts. There was one very large party there who were being so loud I actually couldn't hear anything my wife said to me... More
