Golden >Simms Steakhouse
It appears that all of these ratings are for Simms Landing, which is now Simms Steakhouse. The decor is new and chic, creating a wonderful ambience with spectacular views of the city. The food is much improved, but there is still room for some improvement and the staff is wonderful! Apparently the GM of Simms Landing was not well liked (according to reviews; never met him) but the new Simms Steakhouse GM is extremely hands on and accomodating.
Confused. I must say I'm confused by the negativity in the previous reviews . I've been going to Simms for ten years . The service has always been impeccable and the food wonderful. My mother has special food allergies and Chef Chris even came to the table to discuss a special dish with her. I have never had any other restaurant do that.
Wonderful view, delicious food.... My family and I were visiting Denver for a long weekend, and my husband found this place in a magazine with a list of restaurants. We were staying across the street at the Sheridan, so for us it was very convienient. We went there and the view was unbelievable. We were seated promptly and the restaurant was beautiful. It was dimly lit so you could completely enjoy the view. For starters, we ordered the Simms Crab Cakes. They were delicious!! Those crab cakes were probably the best I've had in a very long time. My 3 year old even enjoyed them!! Next, my husband ordered the Prime Rib with a baked potato, we ordered a grilled cheese and fries (for my 3 year old), and I ordered the Shrimp Tempura. I ordered a Caesar salad with my entree, and I had to share it with my husband it was so huge. The dressing on the salad was superb! My husband enjoyed his prime rib, and the shrimp tempura was delicious, with a wonderful sauce to accompany the vegetables. They also had a good selection of desserts, but we were so stuffed we didn't get to try a dessert, but they looked scrumptious. When we go back to Denver, Simms Landing is definitely a place we will be eating at again!! YUMMY!
Great happy hour, mostly good food.
I recently went to dinner with my coworkers at Simms Landing. We arrived at 5:30 so we sat on the patio for happy hour. Happy hour specials are great with $4.50 (maybe $4.95) apps, including a half dozen oysters and $2 to $2.50 drinks (wine, well, draft Coors Light). The oysters were great and the artichoke dip was not so great, a bit runny and needed a bit of spice.
When our party arrived we went into the dining room for dinner. The view for dinner was great as was the view for happy hour on the patio. The sourdough bread was wonderful, the salads were pretty good. We ordered six entrees and satisfaction varied. The people who ordered red meat were not overly impressed while those who ordered seafood or chicken were happy. I had the Sea Bass Napoleon and it was outstanding. The dessert tray is very tempting with a lot of great choices. We settled on the Tiramisu. The espresso and cappuccino were also very good.
Overall, a very good place to go to for seafood. The views are beautiful and the happy hour was very reasonable.
WONDERFUL WEDDING or RECEPTION PLACE!.
My husband and I searched long and hard to find an establishment to hold our wedding reception a couple of months ago. After looking at what seemed like a hundred places, we finally settled on Simms Landing. Simms Landing has an absolutely GORGEOUS room they call the "Quarter Deck" where they host private parties and banquets. This is where we chose to have our reception for many reasons. the first reason, of course, was the incredible view. From the Quarter Deck (and the rest of the restaurant) Simms Landing has the most spectacular view of the Denver skyline I have ever seen. And surprisingly, the room rental fee was only $150 for the entire night! We are talking about a room that has a fireplace, is surrounded on all four sides with glass, the beautiful view, and sliding glass doors that open out to an equally large and impressive patio which shares the view.
On the night of our reception, we were very nervous as is expected, we wanted our night to be perfect in every way! The thing we were most confident about, however, was that the banquet manager at Simms Landing knew exactly how important this night was, had planned with us to the very last detail, and would make sure that everything would be just how we dreamed. Well, IT WAS! Actually, it was even more beautiful, romantic, and special than we had dreamed. When we got there, the servers-who were amazing by the way- were eagerly waiting for us and immediately began taking care of everyone. They made sure that our delicious hors deuvres were on the tables, our guests had fine wine and cocktails, and even the kids had kids cups with straws! The whole night was magical. We used the quarter deck and the lower patio, so we all could stroll inside and outside, looking at the view and the stars, candles were lit everywhere, the room was decorated exactly like we wanted it, the food was unbelievably good, and our needs were exceeded in every way by the service.
THANK YOU SIMMS LANDING!!
Great view, Great food and service. I regularly eat at Simms Landing when I wish to show a freind or relative the best of denver. I find the service excellent and the food always prepared as I wish. The building sits atop a hill overlooking Denver and the surrounding area. I expecially enjoy sitting on their deck and enjoying their happy hour. The happy hour foods and drinks are unequaled in price and I enjoy the sellections offered. The landscaping is also a big factor. The flowers, both annuals and perinials make for a wonderful setting. May I suggest Simms Landing if you have never been their. I think that you will not be dissatisfied.
Skip This One. My family and I dined here for brunch this Easter (2007) and let me say this place was way below my expectations. First off we had reservations and still waited over 30 minutes for a table in a standing room only waiting room. Then they stuffed our party of 6 in a table (against a wall) meant for 4. The whole restaurant was SO crowded that it was impossible to navigate and the buffet was constantly running out of certain items and the food really wasn't all that good. To make matters worse the manager (Johnnie) we made a complaint to was very rude and condescending. As a person that has tried brunches all over the metro area I can honestly say this was the worst experience I've had yet.
Try this place again if you tried it in the past and didn't like it too much.. Well, the journey is over. I have been on this journey for the best seafood in Colorado. I've tried everything it seems, but nothing comes close to real good east-coast authentic seafood. Well, my opinion on that changed when I tried Simms Landing. The food here is simply amazing. A few people have left reviews saying that they weren't impressed. I HIGHLY recommend trying this place again. When we went the other weekend (Middle of October 2006) it was breathtaking. I told my server that the food was simply amazing and he made a comment saying that they just got rid of their old chef and hired a new guy. I guess he was a well-respected culinary arts teacher somewhere (can't remember where). I guess they got rid of the last guy because of complaints. Well, let me tell you... this new chef knows how to cook and he knows how to do it very VERY well. I assume that you guys that left poor reviews probably tried this place when the last chef was there because when we went the new (and improved) chef just started. I tried the european fish trio. If I remember right it had salmon, grouper and halibut cooked to perfection on top of delicious mashed potatoes served with steamed vegetables and rice pilaf. My wife tried a shrimp pasta. Both meals turned out excellent but I definitely would take the trio over the pasta any day. Service was excellent and the view was great. Very nice ambience, too.
West Denver surf-and-turf restaurant boasts a noted Sunday brunch and an excellent view of downtown.. People from all over Denver come to this eatery for tasty seafood with a view. The vast interior boasts dozens of white-linened tables, most with a view of downtown's skyscrapers. The menu is dominated by seafood specialties.
World Class. Being a Colorado native, I have been to this restaurant for mothers day brunch a million times. I have NEVER had bad service, and their brunch/buffet is hands down one of Colorados best .... if not the best. Great view, great wait staff. If you are looking for a nice place in denver, Simms Landing is for you!
