Way way overrated!

Over the years i have tried this place. The oyster selection is good, but the prices are way high. The best part of it all is the sauces that have been offered. During happy hour, however, when prices should be low, if you order a sauce, it costs twice what the oysters themselves cost. Lesson: they always figure a way to gouge you. also, the physical outlay of the place is severely cramped. There is no place that is comfortable in this restaurant. People are always bumping into you, both the customers and the staff. You cannot sit there and enjoy your time. Overall, the discomfort and unduely high expense provide more than adequate reasoning to make far better selections of eatery. I'd start with another venue before venturing into that place.

Best seafood in town!

Such a fun place! One of the few Denver restaurants where the wait staff are not ski-bum types -- these folks know the menu and wine list and are right on on their selections. The menu varies seasonally and offers some unique creations. Exposed brick and big fish tank make the place a real eye-catcher. If you're not in the mood for fish you can always go to the standby Best Beef Burger ... it is incredible!

Great food

This place is very nice. The oysters are very good. I had the scallops and was fantastic. One member in our group orderd surf and turf. His steak was over cooked but he never complained. They bought the whole table dessert without us even asking! Excellent customer service finished off a great experience.

oysters were awesome;fresh excellent selection and fairly priced. main entree was a little too spicy but palatable and tasty. I liked their house wine double chardonnay and the desert was delicious.

in the end the staff makes this place; they were friendly, offered good meal suggestions. our waiter jeff was timely in service, made excellent meal suggestions and everyone was cool. thanks

What's the hype?

I don't see what everyone thinks is so good about this place! The meal I had was only so so for a 25 dollar dish, and it seems like everything on the menu has something gross added to it to just ruin an otherwise good plate. I sort of liked the crab cakes, but they came with a sauce that was quite similar to thousand island dressing and the salmon pasta would have been good, if it tasted like salmon and not sea water. Sorry Jax, just not digging it.

Nice evening out

The place is definitely hip and cool. The food was good but the ambiance is what definitely makes this place go. My boyfriend thought his seafood platter was tasty. He wished there was more on the plate but he needs to lose weight anyways. I had a nice crab salad (yum).

Very Average

I ate there last night and the food was very average. It was all cooked fine, but for what amounted to a $130 dinner for 2, we could do so much better. The fish, and we ordered one appetizer and 2 entrees, were all fine, very average though and the accompanying sauces did not mesh well with the fish. I doubt I would return.

fresh seafood

My wife and I were visiting from San Francisco and a little hesitant about seafood in Denver. Surprise! Everything was fresh and very lightly sauced, salted and spiced. Good portions. This restaurant would do great in the Bay Area. We were hungry so even though it was happy hour we went straight to the dining room. Service was excellent. When we were done, it was still happy hour, so we retired to the bar, had a few drinks and oysters for dessert and went back to our hotel very happy.
