We had a business dinner that grew from 6 to 8 to 10. At that point they suggested a private room. It was great! No distractions from others and plenty of attention from staff to our needs. Menu was heavy with meat, but plenty of alternatives. Not cheap, but reasonable for what you get.

We made a last minute reservation and then showed up 15 minutes early. The host was very nice and we sat down in the bar for a drink. We ordered drinks and a water. The water glass had some lipstick on it and the barkeep replaced that and comped our drinks. In 15 minutes (our reservation time) she came by... More

Enjoyed our evening tonight at John Elway's Steakhouse in Denver Downtown! The steaks, lamb chops, wine, and drinks were great! Debbie and Heather were our servers and were perfect! This will be my go to restaurant in Denver going forward.

Nice atmosphere and excellent steaks. I had the corn and chicken chowder as my appetizer and it was superb. For the main course I had the filet with scalloped potatoes. The filet was so tender and flavorful and at 8oz was more than enough. For dessert I had the triple chocolate cake and it was rich and moist. Definitely a... More

Held a group dinner at Elways. Food was excellent from start to finish. Appetizers were great. The crab cakes were my favorite. Room we reserved was a great size. Steak was prepared perfectly. Must try the key lime pie. It was to die for.

Trip advisor reviews quite reliable. We chose this restaurant for a group of 10 visiting Denver for New Years Eve 2016. Our experience was as expected; the food was truly fantastic, the steaks melted in our mouths however, just as so many reviews warned the service is not up to the same standards. I wish I could give a 5... More
