"We really enjoyed our meal at Elway's. As with most steak houses, the portions were extremely large. We both ordered the charred red pepper soup and wish that the server told us that the "bowl" of soup was large enough to share. we were so filled up from the soup that we barely put a dent in our entrees and sides. The bone-in ribeye was superb and was almost as good the next day as left-overs."

"We have been to Elway's many times, and this was the worst experience by far. We had booked a table for 3 but when we arrived were presented with a table for 2 that had been set as a 3. With two big men it was an impossible situation and as a result we were forced to eat at a high top in the bar where the service is intermittent and the noise level much higher, making conversation difficult"

"We ordered 2 different bottles of expensive wine and after long waits to receive the wine our waitress came back saying they did not have that wine. I would have expected after the 2nd time our waitress had to tell us ( 15 min after we ordered) that the wine was not available a manager or wine manager would have come over with a wine suggestion in the same caliber and offered that. We opted not to order wine. Next our entries were room temperature and the fries were warm and soggy. As expensive the meals are at Elway's we should have expected to receive hot, delicious food and we did not. There are far better restaurants in Vail, I suggest you choose one of those. Very disappointed."

"I guess I'm a bit spoiled from Elways Cherr Creek. For the value, food (taste), and overall experience, Elways Vail was a disappointment."

"When we got there they had our reservation for 4 instead of 5 and put us in a heated patio which was horrible. They didn't try to accommodate us inside, even with the 5th person being a kid. It was disappointing to have a reservation in a high end restaurant and they put us outside. Not going back there probably."

"All staff, from greeters, wait staff, wine somolier, general service workers seemed to be "just doing their required job" ( No extra eceeding expectations feel). Pleasant enough, but nothing extraordinary. Four out of five filets (med rare) and ribeye (med) were undercooked, but didn't realize it until we got 1/2 way through them. Too late to send them back, but DID mention it to the waitress who's only remark was "I'll let the chef staff know". No even minor compensation mentioned. (We thought it inappropriate to have to ask). The sides were also just "luke warm". All 4 appetizers were satisfactory, and the chocolate cake dessert was simply delicious. At the end of the meal, when asked by the waitress "How was everything?" our reply was "The dessert was the best part of the meal", she laughed and agreed, but I don't beleive she caught the true jest of our answer. She just thought we meant we really liked the cake, instaed of it REALLY being the BEST part of the meal.
We have a little game of comparing upscale restaurants, and all 6 in our party pretty much agreed in this order:
1. Flemings (Inverness)
2. Ruth's Chris (Cancun, MX), even Downtown Denver
3. Jill's (St. Julien, Boulder, CO)
4. Del Frisco's (DTC)
5. Elway's (Cherry Creek) & Shannahan's (DTC) TIE
6. Elway's (Vail)

"The rest of the staff was great but our server was rude which soured the experiance. The food was great once we added salt. But for the price it's hard to believe every dish was underseasoned."
