Samantha E. from Centennial, CO says: “Hype is a dangerous thing. In my experience, most places acclaimed to be “the best ___ in ____” fall short, sadly. But we were gifted some funds to celebrate our anniversary, and decided on Elway’s, which did end up producing one of the best meals I’ve had in Denver. We had Open Table reservations at 8:30 on a Saturday, but still ended up waiting a bit. When we did get seated, both the hostess and servers wished us a happy anniversary, which was nice. We were given plenty of time to order a drink and peruse the menu, but she did have helpful advice. We ended up having:

–Bread: Free bread is usually not all that exciting, but this bread is soft, warm, has a bit of salt on the crust and a nice bite to it.

–John’s Chopped Salad: my husband loved this salad, a combination of lettuce, hearts of palm, peppers, cucumbers, more veggies, cheese, and a vinaigrette. If you’re a fan of salad with lots of “stuff”, this is a good one.

–Charred Red Pepper Soup: honestly, I would go back to Elways just for more soup. The charred flavor is fantastic with a lot of sweetness from the peppers, and the texture is spot-on.

–Bone-in Filet, with Peppercorn Sauce: My husband said this was one of the best cuts of meat he’s had, and loved the peppercorn sauce. The filet was one of the thickest steaks I’ve ever seen, but they cooked it to medium well perfectly.

–New York Strip Special: I had the special, which had sliced strip steak (my favorite) grilled to a very juicy medium, over charred mixed greens with a roasted potato salad. The roasted potatoes were delicious, the greens were tasty (an interesting combination of mustard greens and something else) and the steak, with a brown garlic sauce, was to die for.

–Crimini mushrooms: my husband got a side of mushrooms with his steak and I inherited the leftovers. Sautéed mushrooms don’t take that much skill, but these were delicious.

–Homemade Ding Dong: I never ate Hostess products as a child, but wow, this interpretation of a ding dong is delicious. Awesome devil’s food cake with a dark chocolate shell with some sort of cream filling = yum. They comped this for us as an anniversary gift (we’d mentioned our anniversary making the reservation), and I thought that was a sweet gesture.

The wine list is fantastic, the food is great and so is the service. The prices are very high, but that’s to be expected, and this particular $50 steak didn’t let me down. Way to live up to the hype, #7!”

Sammy L. from Denver, CO says: “The food is very good here. I had the ahi and the wedge salad! Both were delicious and I will be back for sure. My only complaint is that our entree came while we still had our salads, which in my opinion is tacky. We also were not supplied with fresh silverware for our main course. Otherwise nice service and good food!”

Jennifer D. from Parker, CO says: “I brought out of town guests here to try a local steak restaurant. The ribeye was great as well as the desserts. The sides we’re hit and miss. I recommend passing on the fried rice. It tasted like rice mixed with soy sauce that had been sitting in a warmer. Overall, I had a good experience and will be back.”
