    When it comes to fine dining, Elway’s is my favorite. The filet mignon absolutely melts in your mouth — you almost don’t even need a knife to cut it. For the sides, we got the potatoes au gratin and lobster mac and cheese, which are equally delicious. It’s pricey .. so I only go for special occasions. But it’s always so delicious, and I know I’ll be back next time I have something special going on.

    Went for Fathers Day. Got there 30 mins before our reservation and ended up sitting at the bar. The drinks tasted great, they were made quickly and correctly. We both got steaks and they were probably the best tasting steaks we have ever had. The lobster Mac and cheese was a little on the dry and not creamy side. But still good. The Calamari was unique and sooooo good. Their was deep fried olives and baby corn in it which was insanely good. Overall the dinner was great.

    It has gone down hill. The service was terrible. Wrong orders. Items showing up randomly. Took 20+ for drink orders. I understand the price increase based on inflation etc but this is a waste of money. I could have made a better steak and sides for 20% of the cost if I shopped at King Soopers and did it at home.

    Great wait staff, food and drinks! Sommelier was great, they didn’t have the wine I wanted and substituted another, similar, more expensive wine, but at the lower price for the wine I initially requested. Will definitely be back! Bison ribeye was fantastic. BTW, the aces and eights cocktail is fantastic! Was so good, a couple of us had one b4 dinner and one for desert. Wish I had the recipe.

    Super over priced for the quality of service. To be in the Ritz and not have the best service in town is a little off putting. The salmon was great but nothing amazing for being ($56) my friends steak was undercooked so we had to wait for it to come back out and it wasn’t great either. The ambience is very outdated, I think there’s better places to try in Denver I was disappointed.
