We had dinner reservations at 8:15 pm and arrived a few min. early however they were running over an hour behind, we were sat around 9:20 pm. The service was good, I think that towards the end of our meal we got forgotten by our wait staff and had another waiter finally come take our food and get us the check. However, the food was amazing and the mac and cheese was to die for.

This was the second time in a row that they were running more than 30 minutes behind on their reservations. We were there fir a very special dinner and they could care less that we had to wait around until 9:15 to get sat at a table when we had an 8:30 reservation. I understand that things happen, but this happen every time I go to this place and the hostess there are just rude.

The food was amazing but the staff was even better. We had an incident arise towards the end of our dinner with a guest not being so kind to my 20 month old niece. The guest became disruptive and the staff was quick to respond and had the other guest removed. After everything was said and done a few of the staff members including one the managers made sure that we were all ok and they apologized for for the inconvenience. This kind of attention means a lot to me since I work extremely close to here and send a lot of my hotel guests here.

Dined at Shanahans during Denver Restaurant Week. Our party of 4 arrived at 610 for a 615 reservation, and were told it would be 5 minutes before the table was ready. Ended up getting seated 35 minutes later, without a further word from the desk or host. Asked to speak with a dining manager and she had no idea what was going on with the front desk, or indeed, that they were running more than 30 minutes behind schedule. She comp'd us a couple of apps, which was very kind. Table service was excellent, as was the food. Overall, if they can get the front of house fixed and also communicate with the back of house, then this will be a fine dining establishment.

I wanted to love this place, however while the food is excellent the service was the worst I have had in a very long time. From a very expensive restaurant I expected top notch service. Our teas and water were never refilled and not one person asked how our meal was. I am not hard to please, but refilling drinks when we are paying close to $75 per person seems like a reasonable request. Perhaps had we been like other tables ordering very expensive bottles of wine our waitress would have served us better. Sadly I will not go back as while the food was excellent, I expect great service from a supposed 5-star restaurant regardless of my orders dollar total.

The service was terrible and I feel down in the restaurant and bruised by hand and knees. It still hurts. The waitress kept asking if the Manager had come over to our table and he never did. The waitress brought me a glass of wine I did not order and charged me for it. Our reservations were at 8:15pm and did not get seated until 8:45pm which I even checked in early. I feel that my meal should have been comped but nobody seemed to care. I feel because there was water on the floor so it was their error. I will be asking for my money returned back to my Credit Card.

I know it was restaurant week bu t we had to wait over an hour for our table. The wairing area was so packed there was barely room to move and no place to sit. I know it wasn't the hostess' fault - but some effort should have been made to keep us informed - if this had been our first time at Shanahan's Steakhouse, rather than a regular - I would never return. What should have happened is the hostess should have alerted the manager who should have come out and said something, passed around glasses of wine (as has been done in other restaurants when overbooking or customers 'hanging out' longer than usual kept tables from being available) - something to show appreciation to all the customers who had to wait an inordinate amount of time.

Restaurant Week...oh the peasants are here. That is what it felt like. The food was sub par from Filet ( 6oz wheres the beef) being over cooked on one side (had to saw through char) to just right on the other, also lacked flavor (better flavor at Texas Roadhouse) rest was ehh. Coach you can learn from Elway. We went last year for Restaurant Week to Elways and were blown away from large portions to unbelievable taste and service ( felt very welcome). Note for Restaurant week organizers take Shanahans off the list. Spent over $ 120.00 and felt ripped off had more satisfying meals at Chilis.

I have been to this restaurant on 4 separate occasions and have loved it, except for the last visit. My family and I went for Restaurant Week. The steak had some kind of sauce on it that made it salty and also had too much pepper dumped all over it. It would have been good if it were just plain and simple. The sides were good, but skimpy. They gave us 1/4 of a cup of mashed potatoes for each person. The dessert was the only enjoyable item. If you are going to skimp on the menu for Restaurant Week, then don't bother hosting it.

The dinner was a terrible experience due to the stupidity and greed of the owners. Several of their staff did not show up and the restaurant decided to eliminate most of the appetizers and some of the entrees. They had two choices of appetizers shrimp cocktail and a crab meat dish. If you wanted anything else tough. Entrées were limited to steak and sides were down to three choices. When I chose the mashed potatoes I was told they were out of it. So basically I had to order steak with no sides. A good restaurant with this problem should have either closed or discounted the meal as an apology. Not this restaurant. Here you show up and it is tough luck. Did they call me and inform me so I could decide whether to come. Of course not. As a result it is apparent the owners care only for the dollar and not for their customers. As a result I would never go back and urge anyone who doesn't want to be taken advantage of to avoid this restaurant at all costs.

As with most 'modern' restaurants you don't have a real reservation but a time slot that they call a reservation. None of the 07:30 reservations were seated on time. I know because we got there early and I stood by the reception desk and watched them check in. The place was jammed (Friday night), hence the need for the 'overbooking' of slots which I'm sure occurred. The wine I researched and ordered was rated 91 by Wine Spectator. What they had was the following year and it was rated only 87. As big as this restaurant is they should put their entire wine list online and insure someone keeps it up to date. It's too difficult trying to research wines after you arrive at the restaurant. I could have created a list of choices if I could have done the research at home. The food was good and the prix fixe they offered this week was a real bargain. The escargot was extraordinarily good. My steak was a bit overdone and a bit dry. Each of the 20 or more filets I've had from Texas Roadhouse in Colorado Springs was better than this one. They do have valet parking, which I've always enjoyed. It is 'free' and we tipped $7, a cheap price to pay for this nice touch. All in all, we'd go back again but insure we didn't go on a Friday or Saturday.

The food was absolutely wonderful. Friends recommended the restaurant, and my husband and I made reservations for a table for 2 for our anniversary dinner. My only complaint would be that we were seated at the very front, and people crowded by the bar and entrance were almost on top of us. That took away from the atmosphere I was expecting and it felt more hectic rather than romantic. The service was excellent, but I will make sure to ask to be seated in a better part of the restaurant next time.

My wife and I arrived for our 6:30 reservation at 6:05 and were advised our table would be ready by the 6:30 reservation time and were directed to the bar. My wife and I sat at the bar for over 6 minutes before the bartender took our order and came back once to see if we wanted to eat at the bar. At 6:40, we were finally directed to our table, which was so dark, you could hardly read the menu. The waitress was slow and only came to our table 3 times, to take our order, to check on the food and to deliver the check. My wife order her $50 steak medium and got it well done, I ordered my $60 steak medium and came back medium rare. my steak was so covered in pepper, I could only eat a small portion and beware of the side of onions as they covered then in cyan pepper and were inedible.

Would have given this resturant an outstanding reviews, but my steak was very overdone and I had to wait for a replacement, so I wasn't able to eat at the same time as my husband on our anniversary dinner. My steak was complimentary, so that was the right thing to do, but we can't get back the moment, and it made for an less than romantic experience. The service was excellent and the remainder of the food excellent, but one mis-step can hurt

I told the Front Desk that we were having a surprise birthday. The waiter announced it immediately, and when I told him it was suppose to be a surprise, he yelled 'Suprise'. So rude. After all that he never brought the Birthday Woman a free dessert. There was plenty of room behind my chair but the waiter loved to consistently bump into my chair. I was so angry it happened so many times. Do NOT order any soft drinks at this restaurant. They keep them in bottles at room temperature and pour them over ice so your first and last sip is flat. My brother and I both 'vomited' when we got home. I had the salmon and he had prime rib. Not sure why we got sick, but it was immediate....barely made it home. I will not be eating here ever again. I have eaten here many times, but after this horrible fiasco, I am done with Shanahan's.

There is a reason that Shanahan's is a Denver favorite - great service and great food. If you are price conscious this may not be your kind of place but if you value a truly great steak with fabulous service this place is one of the best. It is also a local gem and not part of a national chain. Easy to get to off the 25 (you do not have to meander downtown streets in search of either). The super bowl memorabilia is a nice touch too.

Busboy and Waiter were not paying attention to our requests. We requested lemons for the water 3 times before they were brought. We had to request extra bread 2 x's before it was brought. It appears the chef ? / cook does not know how to cook steaks to the right temperature. We ordered 3 of the $58 Bone in Rib Eye steaks. One was ordered Medium Rare, one Medium, and one Medium Well. They all came out cooked exactly the same - Medium to Med Well.\n\nMy Step son ordered Med Well and I ordered Medium Rare. When we cut into our steaks he said his was too rare and when I cut into mine, it was cooked too much ( only a little pink - looked like Med Well), so we switched steaks because we thought they just mixed them up, but the one he gave me was still cooked way too much ( same, a small amount of Pink and no red) for Med Rare. We switched the steaks back again & He sent his back to be cooked more. I did not want to send mine back, but it was cooked well past Med Rare and was not enjoyable at all. \n\nThis is the second time in a couple of months we came to Shanahan's and the steaks were cooked wrong. It is a horrible thing to charge $58 for a steak and the cook does not know how to cook it. I am afraid I can not come back for this type of screw up. ( My step son says he now goes to Elway's and the steaks are alway cooked perfect) We love Mike Shanahan and the restaurant is very beautiful and in a great part of town, but you better fix the problem with the cook ( you cannot call him a chef), or else you cannot call yourself a 'Steak House'. Service also needs to be picked up a level for this type ( and cost) of restaurant.\n I might try back in 6 months or so, but if it does not improve, you will never see me again. Sorry

Fantastic Fish ! Shanahan's featured a grouper entree this weekend on their Valentine's Day menu and it was fantastic. We were having red wine as we usually order steak and lobster...but my wife chose to try the grouper instead and she was extremely impressed with the flavors in the dish and how well they paired with the red wine. The grouper was perfectly cooked with a tender flaky crust and moist center. The grouper was presented over a butternut squash puree (lightly sweet) and broccolini with brown butter and a splash of balsamic vinegar around the plate. The flavors were fantastic and the dish was complimented by the red blend wine. I tasted several bites and was impressed as well. We will start ordering more fish specials in the future. As usual, the service was great (shout out to Brittany and all the food servers). We'll definitely be back soon.

I can say with confidence that we had the best meal EVER at Shanahan's. The food was without comparison and the service was outstanding; attentive without being overbearing. Everything about the experience was perfect. It's not cheap, but the prices were similar to the other higher-end steak places around town. If you have a choice, you definitely can't go wrong here. We'll definitely be back!

Everything was great - the only thing was the food was not really hot when it came out - it appeared they were waiting for us to finish our salad and as soon as the salad was done the food showed up, which means it may have sat for a few minutes after it was done, and started getting cold. Patrons do not mind waiting a few minutes after their salad is done to get their food, especially if it means the food comes out hot - straight off the grill. Timing is everything! Great restaurants work very hard at this to insure a perfect meal. Thanks.

My wife and I know good steak. We have sampled the best of the best in LA, Phoenix, Kansas City and multiple spots in Texas. Shanahan's was by far the worst high-end steakhouse we have visited. \n\nI ordered a cup of French onion soup for an appetizer which was decent. Nothing to write home about for $10 but it hit most of the typical flavors. My wife enjoyed her wine but noted that the same bottle was overpriced compared to our other stops. Not a big deal, it was our anniversary.\n\nThe steaks and sides were terrible. My wife had the petite filet and I splurged on the 20oz Kansas City Strip. My wife's steak was undercooked (ordered medium, was raw in the middle). Mine was raw (ordered medium rare + but came out rare). Mine also had a bone in it which was not mentioned by the server and not listed on the menu. 1/2 of it was fat. The crust was flavorless. For $65 I was expecting to be blown away. Instead, I stomached an undercooked, flavorless bone-in steak (I didn't know such a thing existed). Undercooking a steak is fine - having no flavor is unforgiveable.\n\nThe most disappointing part of the meal were potato sides. In your typical high-end steakhouse, the sides are what distinguishes you from your competition (assuming the steak is good, which was not the case here). We ordered the creamed spinach, garlic mashed potatoes and green beans. The salt was so heavy in the garlic mashed potatoes that they were crunchy. We were told that the mashed potatoes were pre-prepared that day and that they could not make a potato with less salt (pathetic, but OK). So, we ordered the scalloped potatoes as a replacement. They were cold, flavorless and barely fit for human consumption. The creamed spinach was the only dish all night that arguably belonged on the menu of a high-end steakhouse.\n\nPerhaps the only positive is that our server was wonderful. We did not make a scene and will live with the ridiculous bill for almost inedible food.

I have put off writing this review as I hate to slaughter a business as I am a business owner myself, but every time I think of my experience I become angry. I am kicking myself for not instead going to Del Friscos which was just a few blocks away. Shanahans gave me one of the worst dining experiences of my life. Let's start with fact that despite our reservation we did not get to our table for over and hour and without any kind of apology from the snotty young hostess...unacceptable. Our waitress Ellie was the worst I have had in my entire adult dining experience, and again a little snot...no customer service skills. I could have ignored all of this if the food was good, but it was terrible! I ordered the king crab legs and they were the diameter of snow crab (which I am most certain they were) and they actually stunk and had a horrendous 'fishy taste', these were rotten, not at all fresh. The escargot also had a terrible, not fresh taste. I eat crab and escargot ALL of the time and have never had it this disgusting. I had my assistant with me and she ordered the filet mignon which she described as tough and 'meh', I don't know about you but I have never had a prime cut steak that was tough. When asked how our meal was we told the truth so the manager on duty came over and let me say he did NOT make things right, again a young kid who tried to tell me that I was obviously wrong as everything was very fresh. He did take the crab legs off of the bill and brought me something else that I do not remember as it was again mediocre or worse, but his managing/customer service skills left a lot to be desired--please send him for some training. Overall, probably the worst fine dining experience in my extensive dining life! I do want to give accolades to the bar waitress (I should have written this sooner so I could remember her name) as she was a sweetheart and the only person in our experience that made us feel welcome. Go to Del Friscos instead!

Nice atmosphere. Not stuffy, but still elegant. Great staff and excellent food. When you pay $50 for an entree, you expect it to be good. Shanahan's delivers, unlike Perry's Steakhouse where the staff seemed put out to serve us, their steak wasn't nearly as good as Texas Roadhouse on top of being quadruple the price, and the atmosphere seemed stuffy and uncomfortable. For a high end Steakhouse, Shanahan's is the best I have been to yet!

Only reason I can't give them 5 stars, the expediter missed that my wives scallops were burnt, so we didn't get to eat together since my meal was also seafood; which can't be eaten cold. The manager only offered a free drink to my wife. When she informed him she didn't need another drink, he left it at that and didn't offer and other concession. I expected more from a higher end restaurant.

Very disappointing business dinner-- 3 of my high level managers flew in to meet me for first time, I chose Shannahan's over Del Frisco's (which I love) to change it up. Sat down at 6pm, salads arrives at 730pm.....no apology, nothing. We had to finally request that our server be changed. Manager gives me his card when I was leaving and tells me to email him next time I am dining with them and he will stop by the table. This was a corporate expense but I was astonished that Shanahan's clearly was in the wrong, the server assigned to our table had too many tables and could not handle the volume-- I was embarrassed in front of new colleagues and they do not even offer complimentary dessert (or even salads that we waited 90 min for??)--High priced meal , food was excellent but service was horrible.

My husband and I usually enjoy dining at Shanahans. The food and service is normally wonderful but this time was a huge disappointment. We had a reservation at 6:45 and didn't get seated until 7:10. The hostesses were not very friendly or welcoming that night. Two of us had ordered the Tomahawk bone-in wagyu steaks and our server (for some reason) had placed an order for only one! When the food came, after a longer than usual wait, they had brought me an empty plate! At least it was warm, but empty! What I don't get is why did the server ask how each of us wanted our steaks cooked?!? We never mentioned anything about sharing. When the second steak finally did come, I had already lost my appetite. I was full off the sides and appetizers and didn't get to enjoy my $90 steak. The usual bone in rib eye that we normally order at Shanahans is much better in flavor and texture than the tomahawk wagyu they served. It just seemed all wrong that evening- from the hostesses to the server, and then the food. I don't think we will be going back for a while... back to Del Friscos for us.

Front-of-house lets the kitchen down. Twice in the past month I've had reservations and been kept waiting 15+ minutes for the table. That shows a pattern not a one-time problem. Either they want to build the bar tab or the young people at the front can't manage the walk-in's with the reservations. To be pointed to a waiting area and left there without as much an offer to buy a drink or anything while you are waiting is not the kind of thing I'd expect for such an elegant and fine restaurant. Twice. This time, once seated, I complained, a manager came over, discussed the problem and he said he'd be back. He never came back. They did comp the 2 glasses of wine we ordered and there was a missed opportunity for them to tell us they were going to do this. That the check even has a code for the 'goodwill' discount, 'LW' (Long Wait?) indicates this to be something that has happened there before. There are far too many great steak houses in Denver (and STK coming soon to Downtown) for them to do this. Once, bad. Twice, a pattern and then for the manager to not follow-up during the next 2 hours is just bad service. Too bad because the kitchen is great.

This is a great place to go for a special occasion, or you could go other times if high class dining is your desire. The dining is pricey, but the food is high quality and the service is extraordinary without being overbearing. We had a really fine meal and everyone was satisfied and quite full. The food is quite rich and consider that so you don't totally over order. But if you have take anything home, the shopping bag to carry it out is a nice touch. We'll be back, but we need to save up our pennies first.

Normally the New York Strip is thick and flavorful. This time the streak was thin; about half the thickness. A real disappointment.

Party of four. \nThe table service was impeccable. The restaurant wait staff extremely attentive, courteous, and knowledgable about the extensive wine collection. May be the best restaurant wait staff I have experienced in the Denver area.\nHowever, the pre-dinner bar service was lacking. There were 4 bartenders, not all of the bar seats were occupied, and it took about 8 minutes for me to order one beer. When the rest of my party arrived, their experience was the same and after a few minutes we decided to skip ordering a drink and went straight to the dinner table. ( we did find one bartender conversing at length with a waitress to be somewhat irritating).

This may be the VERY BEST steakhouse I have ever been to....... My barrel cut filet was cooked PERFECTLY, the lobster tail was the most succulent I have ever tasted, including fresh out of the water. The difference to me is that while the meat and lobster are clearly high quality cuts the cooking is simply perfect, and that is hard to find! The sides were also incredible. I had the Lobster Mac with truffle oil (you simply must order this) and the Brussel sprouts which I normally don't care for but were AWESOME! Nice wine list but in my party each person wanted something different and I enjoyed the Silver Oak by the glass. The only draw back was that with a 7pm reservation we weren't seated until 7:45pm. While this is clearly frustrating I must say it was well worth the wait!

We prefer Elways over Shannahans. Flavoring is more on the salty side. Prime Rib cut wasn't as tender as Hillstones or Elways. French onion soup, I only had two sips of the broth because it was salty. Overall, this was the third time we've been here, but will be the last. They say third time's a charm, but not in this case.

We had a reservation at 7:15. We were not seated until almost 8:00. When seated, it was extremely crowded. Our waiter was not able to reach our places and had to pass our dishes and asked us to pass dirty dishes to her. Since they had changed 4 place tables to 6 place tables, It was so crowded that we could not move our chairs. In spite of superb food, the environment and tardiness of seating us, dampened the festive feeling. We spent $1000 on a dinner for 6 and I don't feel that we got our money's worth. We went to The Brown Palace the previous week and there is no comparison in the service and ambiance. We have been to Shanahan's before and you really came up short this time. Disappointed!

The bar area is small so going for cocktails before dinner wasn't the best idea, but the food and service made up for that. The Wine Sommelier who I believe was also the manager, was great at his job. The atmosphere was a little stuffier then I like, but still warm and slightly inviting. Of course seeing the Lombardi Trophy and Broncos Championship rings was on the top of our list and that did not disappoint.

Person serving water did not bring sweetener after 3 requests. Why ? He does not understand English. I have been to over 80 countries and never had a server who didn't speak English. The fries came barely warm. By the time the replacements came, it was time for dessert. My 4 year old granddaughter always gets a tenderloin filet. It was quite disappointing. It was not close to an Elway's filet. My wife said that a steak she recently got at Pappadeaux was much better at half the price. There were very loud people at the bar which we found a little annoying. We have eaten there many times and were always satisfied. However, with so many fine steak houses in Denver, we will not go back.

We had a wonderful meal with some of the best steaks we've had (for us, it ranks near Elway's and Ruth's Chris for favorite steaks in Denver, above Del Frisco's, Fleming's, etc.). Also notable for us was the wine list, the Caprese salad (the mozzarella was divine), the asparagus side (with a balsamic reduction), and the French Onion soup (the perfect French Onion). We spent a long time (almost 3 hours) on our birthday dinner celebration, and enjoyed every minute. It was busy Christmas Party time, so when they needed our table to make way for a large Christmas Party, a manager kindly offered us free drinks if we'd move to the bar area, which we happily agreed to. I know they would normally not ask a table to move, but given the very busy time and their need (and we had been there a very long time), the manager approached it perfectly. We enjoyed every minute of our entire night together.

The Caesar salad was plenty for two to share, and our 8oz. Filet Mignons were cooked to perfection. We ordered them mr+, and exactly as the waiter described is how they were delivered to the table on a sizzling hot plate. The creamed spinach was divine - next time we'll skip the steamed broccoli.

We were taking an important client out to celebrate a sale and our clients requested this restaurant. we were sat next to a table of younger (18-25) age of 2 couples that were literally dressed in sweatpants and tshirts and hoodies with their ballcaps on backwards. they were very loud and throughout dinner they kept taking seflies while chugging from a white wine bottle and flashing gang signs. halfway through dinner they left to go outside and smoked weed on the patio and then came back in smelling like weed in order to take more selfies at their table. when they left they carried their half bottle of wine out with them by the neck without putting it in a bag. If that wasn't bad enough, our clients ordered the crab legs and they came out cold and smelled like fish really badly. we sent them back. the waiter did a good job and he took those off the tab and also gave us a few glasses of free wine, but overall i would say it was a very poor experience. The creme brûlée came out runny, almost watery, but at this point we were too frustrated to complain anymore. I understand that there is no 'formal' dress code, but if someone comes in wearing sweats and a t-shirt and their hats on backwards for dinner service they need to be refused service, if the manager is worried about offending someone, seat them in the bar or outside. if shanahans is going to be the type of restaurant that allows this level of riff raff in their restaurant, i wont be dining here again. When I spend $600-$1000 on a meal, i expect more.

Attempted to note, while making the reservation, that it was our 25th wedding anniversary. Couldn't complete the reservation that way, so made a 'regular' reservation instead. Arrived on time for our 6:30 PM reservation, weren't seated until 7:10 PM. (and the purpose of a reservation is....?) We were told that earlier diners weren't leaving quickly enough. Not impressed with the hostesses and their lack of responsiveness.\nOur server, Bri, was fantastic and the food and wine was outstanding. Upon being seated, she noted that she was sorry that we had to wait for the table and offered to provide a complimentary appetizer. We indulged in the bacon wrapped scallops, which were indeed outstanding. The quality of the meal, as well as the meal service, was quite good.\nNear the end of the meal, our server inquired if we were celebrating a special occasion. When we shared that it was our anniversary, she offered to bring a special dessert. It was a delightful presentation of their signature chocolate cake, two glasses of champagne, and rose petals strewn on the table. However, none of these items were 'comped'. That seemed a bit strange, as it was the server's suggestion, not ours; in fact, we had champagne and dessert waiting at home.\nWould I return for another special occasion? Most likely not. I'll stick with Del Frisco's.

BEWARE: Horrible Reservation Practice. What a beautiful space, too bad it's managed so poorly. One hour standing in the bar area after our scheduled reservation time and having been told multiple times by the clearly flustered hostesses that our table would be ready 'soon', we had had enough. BTW the wait crowd around the bar was so deep it took 15 minutes and $26 for two cocktails. The husbands Manhattan had floaties of some sort in it, undrinkable. We stuck out the wait for another forty five minutes, holding the contaminated cocktail and hoping to be seated soon...didn't happen. Hungry and tired of standing, we told the hostess that we were leaving. \nOnce we declared our intent to leave , the hostess tried to hold my checked coat until a manager could be summoned. We declined wanting to speak with anyone- we just wanted to leave and attempt to salvage the evening by heading to a nearby restaurant and hopefully be seated and served prior to closing (it was now approaching 9:00 pm) . The manager followed us outside and asked why we were leaving. We politely told her the venue seemed poorly managed and waiting an hour past a reservation for a table for two was not okay. It also appeared that entrees were taking 45 minutes or so to reach diners at the tables we had waited near. A restaurant of this caliber should be very familiar with their table turn times and should be able to schedule appropriately to provide guests with a stellar experience. \nWe drove about one mile to Del Friscos, asked the mgr if they could accommodate two famished diners without a reservation, mentioned Shanahans shortcomings and we were promptly seated. He brought us a gratis appetizer and the service and meal were top notch. Very impressed!!! Shanahans missed the target completely and is now on our 'do not recommend' list.

Dinner with my wife and adult daughter. Food was good, as always, but the service was not great. For a high-end restaurant, the expectations of service are much higher than a fast food joint. The service was a bit slow and somewhat inattentive. It certainly did not match the level of service one would expect at this type of restaurant. To top it off, after dinner we ordered two cocktails and ice cream for my daughter. The drinks were delivered but no ice cream. When I brought it up to the waitress, she apologized but immediately picked up the check to make sure that she added it to the bill, as she had obviously forgot about it. For what was the lowest item on the bill, she would have somewhat atoned for her mistake by simply comping the ice cream on a bill that was several hundred dollars.

A friend of mine lives in the Denver area, and insisted on taking us out for dinner at Shanahan's. It's one of his favorite places, and I can see why. From the minute we walked in the door, we were treated like royalty. From the hostess to the bartender to busboy, every single person on staff was warm and welcoming. \n\nSince this is a steakhouse, the obvious choice was to order steak. All three of us chose the Filet, which comes ala carte with your choice of sauce. We all picked the truffle butter and accompanied our meal with grilled asparagus and potatoes au gratin. Every single bite was to die for. The steak was so tender, you could cut it with a fork. The truffle butter on top just made it that much more delicious. Everything was served perfectly, and our server, Cleo, did an amazing job taking care of us.\n\nI would highly recommend eating at Shanahan's if you are in the area. You will not be disappointed!

I dined at Shanahan's Steak House in the Denver (CO) Tech Center area recently; on a week night. I got a strong feeling that they were not interested in me...As, my dining partner for the evening cancelled. The appetizer was very cold; and it is actually a delicacy: Burratta Cheese and Heirloom Tomatoes. The temperature should have been 55-60 degrees and it was served at 35-40 degrees (All F.). The Veal Chop was excellent; although the plate it was served on was over 180+ degrees (F.). So, it went from a frozen appetizer to a sizzle-plate (too hot to eat off of). The Chop was superb when the plate cooled. When I place my fork on the plate, in the beginning of the main course meal, it become too hot to hold; without an asbestos cooking glove. The quantity of sautéed spinach was quite large; and even a person with a gigantic appetite would struggle to finish half of the spinach. The butter and garlic dressing was overwhelming in quantity (good but too much). Finally, I was given the check even before I finished my last sip of Super Tuscan Wine. Apparently the SOMs have discontinued half-bottles. \n\nSo, I am an experienced V.I.P. Open Table Diner; at a Michelin Two Star (N.Y.C.) and a Michelin Three Star (Rome, Italy) in the last 3 weeks. This seems like a big group/Men's type steak house that caters to people that love big ribeyes and CA Cabernets...which is great. I just got the sense that they were disinterested in me during the evening.

I went there with my wife to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was our first time going to Shanahans hoping to make the evening special. We had a reservation at 8:00 but weren't seated until 9:00. We weren't the only ones who had to wait an hour or more past our reservation time. The hostess told us when we came in that they were just waiting for 4 tables to clear up so we could be seated. We heard that same story told over the next hour to everyone who came in. Clearly she was lying to cover up that they had overbooked. Shanahans should have been up front about the actual wait so we could have the choice to go elsewhere if we wanted. Instead we wasted an hour waiting to get a table. Nothing was even offered to us while we waited. When we finally did get seated we were offered an appetizer as an apology for the wait, but I would have preferred upfront honesty about the real wait time. The steak I ordered was excellent but my wife's pork chop was over cooked and dry. Her salad had so much blue cheese that it overpowered every other flavor component. My beet salad however was very good, but the balsamic vinegar they used for the reduction was substandard for this kind of meal.

Told waitress I wanted my burger pink. She suggested medium well. I said oh no thats too well. Then she described the medium. I agreed at that. $15.00 later. I could not eat my meal. Disgustingly overcooked, I was with a friend didn't want to send it back. Also barely ever do, afraid of sneezing in the new one by the cook. I won't be going back.

The food at Shanahan's is ALWAYS good. The problem is their reservation policy. Almost every time we have gone, we have had to wait an inordinate amount of time to be seated.

I usually don't write reviews and I know Shanahan's probably doesn't need more accolades, as it truly is a stellar restaurant on every level. But my husband and I recently dined there for our 30th anniversary and were treated to an outstanding evening! Our dinner was flawless from start to finish. Cleo was the most attentive, respectful and enjoyable waiter we've had anywhere in a very long time. Every detail was seen to, from the rose petals on the table, to our perfectly poured martinis (with the best blue cheese olives!), delicious crab cocktail, probably the most delectable petite filet mignon I've EVER tasted, lobster tail, and scrumptious complimentary chocolate mousse. In my opinion, Shanahan's does everything right. We were uncertain about which wine to choose and Cleo allowed us to taste several before ordering. I don't believe we were treated any differently because it was a special occasion for us. I do think a trip to Shanahan's is a special occasion all on its own! HIghly recommended and we will definitely be back. Thanks again, Cleo!

In a word, disappointing. My wife and I went to Shanahan's for our anniversary. The caesar salad was very mediocre, almost bland. The filet was okay, but not great. The crab cakes were very good however. Overall, for the price paid, very average. I don't mind paying premium prices for a great meal, but our meal at Shanahan's was far from great. There are definitely steakhouses throughout the Denver area that are a couple of levels above Shanahan's. This was the 2nd time that we have had a very average meal there. I don't get the attraction with the prices they charge.

I found this steakhouse to be highly overpriced. All sides including the sauces are ala-cart. We ordered the Pepercorn sauce which totally ruined our steaks. It was watery and extremely salty. I mentioned this to the waitstaff. He deducted the price of the sauce from our final bill. \n\nI don't mind paying for great food and service, but this place is living on the Corporate expense accounts. The locals will only visit for happy hour.

Husband and I arrived earlier than our friends and went outside to enjoy a martini on the patio. It was a little chilly but they have the heaters above that took the chill out and made it completely comfortable. We were greeted right away, order taken and drink brought promptly. Had the Shanny martini, which was good but didn't seem to have much alcohol in it. Transferred over to the table, warm delicious bread and butter brought to the table, which was hard for me to stay out of as I love bread, but it doesn't love me. Started with some oysters, prawns and crab cake. The prawns were VERY good. The crab cake was a true crab cake, lots of times you cannot taste the crab, but this one had more crab than anything else. Oysters, I'm not a fan of, so can't comment. Ordered the filet and lobster tail, both were delicious. The steak pretty much melted and had a great flavor. For sides we had mushrooms, which I personally didn't care for. The scallop potatoes were amazing and brussel sprouts were very good. This restaurant is definitely one of Colorado's best. Unfortunately for us it's at the opposite end of town, but I'm sure we can manage to get back here from time to time.

This was our third visit, second on the patio. First visit was inside and wonderful. Second on the patio and was OK. Third time was not fun. Too crowded and too loud on the patio. It was a meat market for the rich and famous. When we go to a restaurant and spend that kind of money, we expect a certain kind of class. The patio at the least should be reserved for people sitting at the tables and not allow others to stand around. We felt so bad for the wait staff having to maneuver through all of those people. We won't take Shanahan's off our list, but it will definitely be awhile before we come back.

My husband made our reservation for 7:30 p.m. so that we could visit Shanahan's to celebrate our wedding anniversary. (We have a three month old child at home, so we expected to be seated in a timely matter so that we might return home to relieve our sitter). \n\nOver an hour passed before we were seated for our reservation. We were finally seated at 8:45 p.m. (one hour and 15 minutes past our reservation time). The restaurant's sommelier gave us a free appetizer and free dessert along with a $25.00 gift card to be used during a future visit, which we appreciated. However, when the tab is $250.00+ it seems as though the restaurant could have done more to make the experience a bit better. \n\nIf Shanahan's is going to allow reservations, they need to re-vamp their system to allow leeway for the tables that take 'too long,' to ensure that patrons continue to be seated on schedule.

My husband and I went to dinner last night to celebrate our Anniversary. Our reservation ran over 40 minutes to get seated to start. We were seated and unfortunately waited again 7-10 minutes for drinks. We placed our drink order and an order for escargot as an appetizer. We ordered our dinner and salads when our drinks arrived. We quickly received our salads and then our dinner followed. We never received the escargot and when he checked on the food after it was delivered we told the server and the look on his face was clear he discovered forget to order it. He said he will get it and it will be 'right out' . We finished our entrees and I asked for the rest of my meal to be packed up, because I was full. The escargot then arrived at the table after we were both done eating, so it ended up being our dessert I guess? We were clearly bothered and upset and did not want or need to add more to the bill for dessert or coffees at this point. I am glad he did the right thing by removing the escargot off the tab, but I feel for spending the hefty price you do here the service should be impeccable! There should be more than one person serving a table. My husband never wants to return due to the poor service we received. Maybe he was having a bad night, at that point he should have asked for help and had someone else step in. We then had to wait over 20 minutes to get our bill picked up, card ran and returned.

We dined on a Sunday evening, and had the Sunday evening meal, which we have had on previous occasions. This time, the portion of mashed potatoes provided to our party of four was very small- when divided, we each only had about two tablespoons of potatoes. The asparagus was not consistent- some spears were overdone, and some were very crunchy.

We spent our 20th wedding anniversary at Shanahan's, as we like a great steak. We waited a little longer than I would have expected for having a reservation, but it was well worth the wait. We were seated at a large circular table with great privacy, but with a great view of the room of diners. The food was exceptional! Steaks were spectacular, grilled to our exact tastes and you could cut through them like cutting through butter. The sides of garlic mashed potatoes and the creamed spinach were just as good. Cannot rate this place any higher, but I would recommend Shanahan's to anyone looking for a great meal with equally excellent ambience

Shanahan's is our 'go to' for special occasions! We dined there on Wednesday night, before Thansgiving. The service was excellent, as was the food. The 12oz filet was prepared to perfection, and the sides were amazing. We've already made reservations for Christmas Eve!

I frequent Del Friscos and Flemmings as my prime steak houses. Shanahan's definitely fits in with these restaurants. There was a wait of around 10 to 15 minutes after our reservation time. The food was excellent, Service was great. Possibly a 9 compared to my usual 10 experience at Del Friscos. I'm sure most folks would be more interested in their friends than the ever so slight delays in providing new silver or a top off on water. I was slightly surprised by the price. Pleasantly surprised. I'm a pretty laid back reviewer and am not much of a complainer so take that into consideration.

Shanahan's has become our special occasion 'go to' place! The food is exceptional, the ambiance is perfect, and we have never had a bad experience with service. To start the meal, the warm bread is irresistible... We then opted for the onion rings, a Shanahan's salad, loaded baked potato, creamed corn, and the 12oz filet. And... we had plenty left over for full meals the next day! \n\nThank you, Shanahan's, for a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner again this year!

We love Shanahan's and always have a good experience. Our waiter Francoise was fabulous. He was attentive and on top of everything. All our food was delicious. There were four of us and we split a couple appetizers and a salad. We had Rib eye steaks, filet and Sea bass and all were cooked perfectly and delicious. The Chocolate dessert and especially the Lemon shortcake were to die for. \n The only down side is that the restaurant is very loud and it is very expensive, but great fun for a special treat once in a while.

My overall experience was great! We had reservations at 8:15pm. We did not get sat until 8:45pm. Several other people where also waiting so we had no where to sit. We stood by the entrance but we felt like we where in the way due to the staff having to bring tables in and out several times. I think the hostess could have mentioned that the wait might be longer then 15 minutes. They gave the option to sit in the bar area to a couple of men but not once suggested it to our party of 4. Once we finally sat down, everything was great!

When you have a reservation (via OpenTable) and you are aren't seated until an hour after the designated time, and the same occurred with about 5 other groups, the evening goes downhill from there. The restaurant doesn't abide by the policy of letting a table know that the duration of table occupancy is 'X' hours and the restaurant expects guests to pay their check and move on. That is very common in cities like Los Angeles - just understood you cannot monopolize the table all evening. Shanahan's needs to change it's handing of table turns, otherwise patrons cooling their heels for an hour are as left very dissatisfied. The restaurant credit, they did comp starters. Just be prepared you may not be seated anywhere near the time of your reservation.

My husband said his steak was perfect and enjoyed the Shanahan rub on it. They were out of swordfish but the Scottish salmon with a ginger sauce was excellent.

We asked for the Manager who immediately found us a table. Obviously, being a complainer is the only way to get served properly. Food was OK but overpriced.

Very poor experience. \n\nHad a 7:15 reservation, we arrived 5 minutes early and despite reservations we were not sat until 7:45pm after accepting an outside table of which we didn't want. Worse part is it was me asking them what was going on and not them offering it sooner as few people were outside due to the weather. \nServer did not know how to use her bread crumb remover at all. I ate most of my meal in crumbs only after another server before my third course cleaned it up. \nMy first two course were great a tuna tar tar dish and a wonderful chopped salad. Wine was great as they had Silver Oak by the glass and I did not have to resort to buying a $200+ bottle to have one glass of great wine. \nDinner or main entrée was bad. We both had sea scallops. There was serious sand or chips of shell in my second of four scallops. After biting down hard and having this experience I was done eating the rest of the evening. They did offer to replace the scallop or the entire entree but I did not care too much as I lost any further appetite. \n\nThen the server insisted on us having a desert or at least one to share. I informed her we were not 'desert' people. But then she said it's free are you sure you don't want to take it home? I replied no as we were done eating for the meal. Offering us a free desert was a nice gesture but after explaining we were not into desert the check came and not one thing was deducted from out $200 bill or not even a desert price credited off the bill. What a waste of $200 bucks for a dinner of two. I would recommend going elsewhere. Del, Flanigan or even Keg is much better in all aspects.

Shanahan's was the only high end steak house in the Denver area that we had not eaten at, we decided to go for our anniversary. The food and price were exactly what we expected, but since I told them it was our anniversary, I kind of expected that it would be acknowledged. Instead our server asked if we were there for anything more than dinner, after we told her she wished us well, but considering that all of the others go out of there way to make it special this was underwhelming. This was also the first time that both a high end chardonnay and a high end cabernet were served in the generic wine glasses that were on the table when we sat down. Both the wine and the food were excellent, but that was expected so nothing really special. We had a good, but very noisy meal; and got to watch parents wrangle toddlers, cute but not necessary at this level restaurant. Next month when we celebrate my husband's birthday we will likely go back to one of our other choices.

I ordered the 6oz filet that comes with a portion of potatoes. My steak was cooked correctly and tasted ok, not much seasoning, but the potatoes were dry and burned on top. Literally the top was black! My husband ordered the 6oz steak with the 8oz lobster tail. It was prepared well .We also enjoyed a bottle of red wine. We also had the brussels sprouts which were all over cooked (yuck) and ordered a side of potatoes which were prepared perfectly. The waitress charged us for a steak with an add on lobster tail instead of the lobster/steak combo that is on the menu. There is a $10 difference. We pointed the issue out to her and she fixed it. Our waitress appeared to be unfamiliar with the menu. She also recommended that we order an additional side of potatoes even though mine came with them and because she placed an order for my husbands steak individually then added a lobster tail to it, his came with potatoes too! We had an abundance of pototos and ended up taking all of the side order home and we did not eat the brussels sprouts because they were over cooked. Our bill was $160 which is a bit over priced for the quality of food we received.

We had a business dinner with each of us selecting a steak. Overall food quality was average for this level of steakhouse. We ate in the bar area which is a bit loud but acceptable. Steaks were average at best; underdone to my liking but based on the servers recommendation of how the kitchen operates. We had the Brussels sprouts and Lyonnaise Potatoes. Oddly these come in a tiny square bowl with a GIANT spoon which makes them impossible to serve. Our waiter agreed that they needed to figure this out. Sides were average to a bit unimaginative. Potatoes were clearly over done. Wine list was good.\n\nNet is that the food is average for a high end steak house. Staff is attentive. If you are looking to wow your clients I'd look elsewhere.

abolutely gorgeous place and cozy patio, but mediocre service. The menu items (steaks) were not available, listed wild mushrooms side turned out to be a mix of Crimini mushrooms 😦, entrée was served without side dishes, that arrived upon our reminder to a server. It was a Wednesday evening and not even a busy Friday evening. We made a reservation and were told to wait for 30 min for a table to be ready unless we can sit outside (patio). We come to this place often but haven't been here for few months and must admit that it's changed for worse. Overpriced for mediocre food and service. Not sure if it stays on our top places list.

I booked dinner at 8:30 on Sunday night for a group of six. Appetizers and drinks were great, but our entrées never made it out. The waitress informed us there was a malfunction with the printer to the kitchen, and that are order had not reached the cooks this was after about 30 to 40 minutes waiting for food to come out. The waitress tried her best to get the entrées out but unfortunately we had an engagement that we needed to attend right after dinner so we had to leave without our main course. I've been to Shannahan's numerous times I've had great experiences. I love the GM Mark there. Unfortunately Sunday night was a letdown being that it was a special event I invited my friends to.

Shanahan's is not what it used to be. We had to wait 5 min before a waiter talked to us. My Iced Tea was empty before we got a refill. The steaks are still good, but not like they used to be. My wife's steak was slightly dry (she orders it well done. Yes, I know.), but they have always been very moist on our past visits. The steaks used to come sizzling on the platter, but that didn't happen this time. Our past visits have always been wonderful, with fabulous service and food.

Because this place is so loud, under the special reservation requests i indicated that we were celebrating our Anniversary. We were initially seated in the lounge but after our table was bumped for the 6th time we asked to be relocated before our entrees arrived. This was promptly accomplished for our meals to be on time. They have a large Friday night crowd on the patio that enters and exits with no regard for the people inside at tables. The manager came to our table to apologize and gave us a complimentary desert for the trouble. Hardly a romantic experience

The service was outstanding, our waiter was very professional, and could read our group (6 people) very well. When he saw that we were more laid back, he joked right along with us, but was still professional. My steak was cooked perfectly. The ONLY downside was that while the HOT plates were a nice touch, they were so hot that they cooked my steak while it was sitting on the plate. I ordered my steak blue, and it came out cooked perfectly, but as I cut it it would sear from the hot plate. Not a big deal at all, I just may ask for a non-hot plate next time. Everything was phenomenal, my husband had the lamb, which was fantastic. All of our sides, apps (mmm... that escargot....) and dessert were amazing. The ambiance was great- felt very upscale without being stuffy. It was expensive, but for that kind of service and amazing food it was worth every penny.

It was a very disappointing experience. We had made the reservations a long time ago and were quite excited to share it with four other friends that we had invited with us to the event. However, when we got there for our 6:30 p.m. reservation, it was another 25 minute wait to get the tables set up. The weather was a bit rainy and breezy so the outdoor seating arrangements were quite cold even w/ the heat lamps. The band played so loud that we could not have any dinner conversation whatsoever. It was difficult to even order drinks or our food due to the communication barrier. There was not enough staff available to take orders or keep up with drinks as many were still setting up tables, etc. The band was quite late in starting to play, they took too many breaks, didn't play for very long sets and did not appear to be getting along with each other. Food was sub par - I didn't even get what I ordered but was not going to return it and wait another 30 minutes for something else. For $75.00/minimum head and a final bill of $250.00 x 2 people, it was an awful experience and value for our money and we will not repeat the 'concert series' nor recommend it to any other friends.

This past Monday I made reservations for my mom, my boyfriend, and myself for dinner. We had never been to this restaurant and thought it would be a good time to try with Denver Restaurant Week. We had to wait over 30 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation which was ridiculous. I had to check in and ask what was taking so long because we were told we would only be waiting a few minutes. While we were in the crowded waiting area staff members continued to bump into us and not a single one apologized which I thought was pretty rude. They also were carrying tables over customers' heads which I don't find very professional. The food was great and our waitress was great. The noise level was way too loud. I won't be back

My wife and I decided last minute to grab dinner out, so I grabbed my phone to make a dinner reservation on Open Table. It was about 6:45 so I figured 7 or 7:30 would be good. Open Table showed ALL times available for seating but when we arrived, Shanahan's was packed! The summer concert series was playing on the patio and the entire restaurant was standing room only. Our 7:30 reservation was unable to be honored due to the large volume of people. We were lucky to get 2 chairs at the bar after about 10 minutes of standing and stayed at the bar for about an hour before we were seated. The delay wasn't a big inconvenience since we were having a good time with our friends. Dinner was great, as usual and our server was on top of everything. The bartenders were scrambling all night long and did a great job as well.\n\nMy only concern was that Open Table was not accurate and did not coincide with the packed house. Perhaps because the Friday Summer Concert Series overwhelmed the restaurant and they could not keep up with the demand.\n\nWe will be back for sure.

The appetizers, sides, and desserts were thoughtful, well balanced, and expertly executed. The steaks were *ALL* overcooked, though, only two were returned. In all honesty, all of the steaks should have been sent back because no one wanted them overcooked. Given two of the returned steaks were $60 a piece, you should get the right temperature. They were better the second time. However, as a whole, only the pepper steak was exceptional. The rest of the steaks were really throw-aways as flavoring almost wholly relies on pepper which is sad and disappointing when this place is touted as a Steakhouse. At the prices Shanahan's charges, you expect exceptional steaks. Other establishments do steaks much much better. We went here has a special occasion. I wouldn't go back for any reason.

We made reservations for Mother's Day about a week ahead of time for 7pm for the four of us. We arrived about 5 minutes early and were told that some guests were lingering and it would be a few minutes. There were lots of groups in the front lobby looking increasingly unhappy. Some of them had reservations for 630pm and still had not yet been seated. I walked over to the back part of the restaurant and saw multiple parties that were clearly done, and had paid, but were leisurely talking with one another or fiddling with their new mother's day presents. Their tables were still filled with drinks and dirty plates. Admittedly there is not much you can do when the guest pays but won't leave, except THERE IS--you can completely clean off their table so that you don't waste time cleaning when they finally do leave. You can send the manager over there to inquire if everything is ok, you can send the waiter back over there, and keep on going back until they get the hint. After 10 minutes or so, I think it is ok to ask the guest to leave. Especially when you are creating a huge back up with guests waiting in the lobby. The management needs to balance the risk of upsetting the party who has just paid, or piss off the multiple groups who are still waiting. Finally got seated at 735pm. The assistant manager came over and apologized and gave us two free appetizers. Nice gesture, but could have been avoided if the manager had been a bit more assertive with the lingering guests. We didn't eat our main course until 830pm which is a bit late. The food was great as always, and the service by our waitress was very good. However, the whole incident was a let down, and we question going back there on a busy day.

Reviews here and on Tripadvisor point out that reservations on weekend are, shall we say, approximate. You book a time and then wait for a table. The staff was truly solicitous, bought a round of drinks, but they are stuck with a policy and system that on this particular Friday meant everybody with a reservation waited at least 40 minutes. The food, wine and, especially, the service were worth the wait, although at New York prices the New York Strip wasn't quite up to par.

Had a reservation for 7:45PM, wasn't actually seated until ~8:15PM. We ordered our food right away, but it didn't actually come out of the kitchen and make it to our table until ~9:15PM, which seems like an absurdly long amount of time. The service was spotty at best with the waitress infrequently checking on our table. The food was good, but didn't seem to quite live up to my memories of eating here prior. Will most likely be dining at Morton's or a similar establishment to celebrate special occasions in the future.

We made a reservation and mentioned it was a special occasion..our granddaughters 16th birthday. The reservation was for 7:00 they kept us waiting in the reception area until 8:00! They kept saying the table was paying their check..for 45 minutes. They did seat several other parties that came in after us, it seemed the hostesses knew those parties. It ruined a special evening with our granddaughter, as she had plans with friends, later in the evening. If they are going to over book their reservations, they should tell you when you arrive, so that you can make other arrangements. Keeping you waiting an hour past your reservation....with assurances that the table will only be a moment, is rude. They offered an appetizer, drink, dessert...however, by that time we were hungry, disappointed and her latter plans had also been ruined. Should have gone to Elways...they would never have left a reservation waiting for an hour!!

We were totally surprised that such a beautiful and upscale restaurant catered to such a downscale dressed crowd, which we would call sloppy casual :) However, the food, surroundings and service were exemplary. From now on we will know not to change from the clothes we hiked in all day. We left feeling the beautiful surroundings, high prices and food were a total contrast to the clientele.

Someone tried to take the bill 4 times, before we were ready or even had a chance to put a credit card down. We were not offered coffe or anything else at the end.

We have eaten here before and the service has always been great, but they were really off their game this time. We had a reservation for 7:15 and were not seated till 8:00. The hostess said they would buy our table a round of drinks for the inconvenience. With that everyone order a drink (we could not get to the bar while we were waiting because it was so crowed with people who were not being seated in a timely manner). After dinner we then ordered a desert (which we wouldn't have ordered, except that they kindly had offered to buy our first round of drinks). Long story short, they brought out our desert and an extra desert and said that the extra desert was the compensation for the tardiness of the 45 mins we were left standing in the lobby. We could have argued and insisted they take back the desert and buy the drinks as they had said they would, but at that point we were over it and honestly very disappointed with how the whole thing was handled start to finish. With all the high end steak houses in Denver that are available, we will probably not go back to Shanahan's.

This was our first visit to Shanahan's Steakhouse. This steakhouse was very good. The steaks had a great flavor, the sides were fabulous, the drinks were well made and the wine list was robust. Our waiter was attentive without being annoying, he spent the perfect amount of time with us. This was a very good dining experience and my wife and I now have another really good steakhouse to add to our list of 'special' date places.

For an excellent steak without being completely overpriced, this is the place to go. We had the scallops to start which were cooked perfectly and had a nice sauce. Then we each had the 6 oz petite filet mignon with potato au gratin and creamed corn - all of which were excellent. The steak was like cutting through butter, melted in your mouth, and had a nice seasoned crust. To celebrate my husband's birthday, they gave us a chocolate mouse which was the perfect way to end the night. Our waitress was wonderful - stopped by just enough to check up on us, but knew when to let us enjoy our evening. She was very helpful with recommendations and was even able to suggest a non-alcoholic cocktail for me to enjoy since I'm pregnant. Overall, a perfect evening and we'll definitely be back.

I live in the neighborhood and Shanahans is our favorite place. Over the years, the quality has remained excellent. While Denver seems to have an excessive number of steakhouses, Shanahans is the best. It is also probably the most expensive! Had the bone in Ribeye. Nothing better. Always take half of it home. Wine list is diverse, interesting, and priced so that you can find something in your price range that is interesting.

Shanahan's was the setting chosen for a critical evening meeting. The food was outstanding, the service was superb - and most, of all the restaurant unobtrusively kept a server three and a half hours past closing time so that our business meeting could be continued without interruption.\n\nIt was 1:30am when we finally wrapped and realized that the only people in the restaurant were our party, and the incredibly gracious server who stayed behind to ensure that every need was met. They didn't ask how long we would be - they just ensured we had every need met.\n\nShanahan's is therefore at the top of our list for future engagements.

The food at Shanahan's was great, but given that we couldn't even hear the person sitting next to us it made the experience much less enjoyable. In fact, the noise and ambiance overshadowed the quality of the food - I am not sure if anyone in our party would walk away remembering that the meals were tasty given that the loud dining room diminished our experience and made the bill at the end of the meal tougher to swallow. Looking back, there were a couple of other steakhouses in town that probably would have suited our needs better.

As the Review Title suggests, it's Shanahan's so, like Elway's in Cherry Creek, Tiffany's, or Brooks Bros., you're paying for the name. Don't get me wrong, it's damn nice being associated with the best, but understand when your lamb chops cost $47, you're paying for the name brand. The food is good, but not break-your-mouth-outstanding-bring-in-the-cats-and-dogs good. However, I will say this, the service is EXCEPTIONAL. Almost makes dropping $300 on a meal with your gal worth it. I jest, but it's definitely a place you should try but I'm not writing home about it. It's where you go to be seen by others who want to be seen by others. That's ok for sure! But just know ahead of time that's what you're getting into.

The appetizers were not explained when brought out, I asked for a wine recommendation and the waiter did not seem familiar with the wine list at all and recommended a wine that was just so-so.

We have been there many times, and for the first time tried the large Australian lobster tale (for two), which of course was very pricey. It was a disappointing dish, with very little taste and nothing on the plate. Not recommended for anyone who is accustomed to fresh lobster (Pacific or Maine are much preferred by us). Might have guessed that it would be frozen food. The service was also lacking and to be honest is often the case here. Nice folks, but not well trained or easily distracted. They disappear for long times and make mistakes like salt on the rim of Marg. Denver doesn't have great high end dining options, so this is still one of our favorites.

Overall excellent dinner, even at the high price. Best Caesar's I think I have ever had. My wife's filet was outstanding. My ribeye was flavorful but a little tough for a medium rare, prime cut of beef, again taking into account the premium price. It should be served as a thicker cut in my opinion. We will likely be back someday. Service was top drawer.

Excellent service and food. My steak was cooked perfectly and I have to say the potatoes au gratin were incredible!

Our 1st visit was impressive, the food & service was great which is why we returned. Our visit on 4/24 was disappointing. My wife ordered Scottish Salmon which she has had many times at another resturant. It's been seasoned, moist and served hot. Scottish Salmon at Shanahan's was not. My wife gave instruction as to how she wanted more seasoning, cooked a shorter time on a higher heat. A new order was brought. It was better than the the first but still not to the standard it should have been. Also, the asparagus were served luke warm and was cold shortly after being brought to the table. Asparagus were reordered too. Vegetables should be served in heated dishes as the main entree to keep them warmer longer.

We've been here many times but this was the best service we've had. Our server was Kelly and she was fantastic. The steak is always fantastic.

It was the first time in over 2 years for my brother and I to get together since he lives on the East Coast. And our first time at Shanahan's. Our dinner reunion couldn't have turned out better. We were seated in a relatively quiet area so we could talk and catch up, the service was great, and patient as we did so, and the food nothing less than exceptional. Having grown up with a father who spent 40 years in the meat industry, we know a little bit about steaks and these were outstanding. And afterwards, being huge football fans, to be able to hold an actual Lombardi Trophy at our age was priceless...and truly the icing on the cake. We'll be back for sure!

First and foremost the reception at the front desk was amazing, thank you. And Natalia who was my server, was even more amazing. She really took the time to make me feel special and that I was really respected as a customer. While I really expected the food to be amazing, which it was, I was not expecting all the extra attention. \n\nThank all of you so much for an amazing evening. \n\nYou cou
