Night started off basic enough. Couple cocktails and salads (although one of us didn’t order a salad but got one anyway). Our orders were simple enough-2 steaks and 1 tuna. About an hour into our experience the manager comes over and explains some large tables...More

Hubby and I were on a weekend trip and we made reservations for Elway's. This place is AMAZING. Our steaks were cooked perfectly, service was impeccable, and we will definitely return if we ever have the chance.

I ate in Elway's while staying at the Ritz Carleton. It is an elegant steakhouse with a nice bar. Food was great (albeit very expensive like any great steakhouse).

Although a little spendy, the Mushroom and Swiss burger was one of the most tasty, best burgers I’ve had in a long time! The service was wonderful and the wine selection varied!

Native Chicagoans, including my wife and I, believe Chicago is a town for steaks, that there are more outstanding steakhouses in Chicago than anywhere else. Have you been to Gibson's, Morton's, Bavette's, Swift & Sons, Maple & Ash, Boeufhaus, GT Prime, Chicago Chop House or...More

Very good with perfect service. The sommelier was on it. Had filet, ribeye, scallops all done to perfection. The spinach was too salty for me. The ding dong dessert was amazing.
