Great food, great brunch price. Sitting @ table next to family, who had a very rude waitress. Tossing bowls at customers and juice glasses. Knocking over an item on their way able. Very rude disrespectful. Hope we don't get that waitress.

Very Good as Usual

we have been going here for years, and always have a very good meal. tonight I was using my Birthday Discount of 75 percent, and still had the same good service. food very good, service very good, clean.. but could really use some updated decor. Price is in the range of what you would expect for fresh, well cooked seafood.

Greatest Fish, chicken, steak restaurant in Denver

Always impressed with the food and especially the service. Calamari, stuffed mushrooms, escargot, coconut shrimp and other appetizers are amazing. try their vanilla sweet potatoes for a side, they are to die for! Prime Rib, & Filet Mignon, Lobster is great together w/ daily large selection of fresh fish. Incredible creative chef.. Mngmt./owners visit your table each time to be sure you are satisfied with your meal. Fair prices for the large portions. We love this restaurant and frequent it often even though it is at least 25 miles+ away from our home. I would highly suggest to anyone wanting extraordinary food & service. Easy to get to on Hampden in Denver. plenty of parking.

Mixed reviews

I had withheld going to this restaurant due to bad reviews online. Having moved from Florida I'm a bit picky about my seafood but still desire fresh fish. I finally went for lunch and afterward felt horrible about avoiding this place because of a few bad reviews. I had a delicious Escolar fillet and great service for a surprisingly affordable price at lunch. Second visit was a similar experience with a good server and good food.

My visit for lunch yesterday was the exception. Had I never been to this restaurant I would have likely not returned. Had I been paying dinner prices I would have been especially disappointed. Thankfully my previous good experiences are the reason I will return.

My server said all of the right things but he acted too busy for me and would walk away while I was speaking to him. How rude. His words may have been saying the right things but his actions said otherwise. I ordered a coconut crusted Mahi that was a lunch special. The first piece was burned and burnt coconut is not appetizing. The server offered to bring another piece. Yes, please. I didn't eat much of my sides in anticipation of the new fillet. Sadly, I let the server take my sides away with my burned piece of fish. Guess the kitchen was upset with me. The next piece was beautifully golden but completely raw. By now my hour lunch break was over and I didn't have time to wait on a new meal, again. A manager came over an apologized and comped my meal. I left my server a big tip though he didn't really deserve it. Technically he did everything he was supposed to but I left feeling like ""one of those"" diners that gets talked badly about when I left. I don't LIKE being a pain but for a $15 lunch I expected more than burned or raw fish. (I love sushi but Mahi is not good raw).

Maybe the restaurant made a poor decision to have coconut crusted Mahi since Mahi is a thick fish and if you can't cook it thoroughly without burning the crust use a different fish. I had some bread, a few bites of my sides, and a few bites of fish. I left the restaurant without being very satisfied and a bit hungry.

With the meal comped with no questions I will return again for lunch and request the server that calls me ""young lady"" though I'm 30. She was so nice and attentive. If I'm looking to pay high dollar for dinner I will go to Bonefish which has never once been disappointing and has always delivers amazing food and outstanding service.

Great food and service

My husband and I dined at Fresh Fish for his birthday and couldn't be happier. My husband ordered the king crab legs and had the largest order come that I have ever seen at a restaurant. The staff was very knowledgable about my fish selection and the service was outstanding. We highly recommend it!!

The Worst Food and service!

We went here to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We were so disappointed in the food and especially the service.
The food was really average - not good. The waiter never looked us in the eyes, but looked off in the distance while answering our questions and taking our order. When our meal came, my husband chose two sides with his meal - but ony got one. When we asked the waiter about it, he said ""Oh,I forgot. We are out of noodles."" We wished we had gone to Elways - that's where we usually go for our anniversary. We will never be back here!

Great Food, Awesome Happy Hour

You've got to try this place -- best seafood in town! I’ve been eating at Fresh Fish Co for 15 years and it just keeps getting better. Awesome variety and I’m pleased whether I have a salad and appetizer or full crab leg dinner with sides and dessert. My favorites: Calamari, Tuna-sicles, Mahi with the tomatillo salsa or ginger sesame sauce, crab legs, Prime Rib, Key Lime Pie and Strawberry Berry Festival. And the menu is labeled for dietary considerations/restrictions -- gluten free, calorie counts, etc!

The Black Pearl Oyster Bar... it’s part of the restaurant and they have the best happy hour around. The happy hour menu includes a number of drink specials and a long list of appetizers for about $1.50 to $5. My favorites: BBQ Shrimp, Prime Rib Sandwich, Voodoo Yam Fries, Shark Fries, Calamari and the 50 cent oysters. 50 cent oysters!!!

The atmosphere and decor are nice and inviting, and the water fountain wall near the entrance is a relaxing, artistic touch. The staff is friendly and helpful, and one or more of the management/ownership team greets me by name and with a smile on their face every time I am there.

The calamari here is the BEST. They have a great happy hour and lunch menu as well. Love the salmon and halibut! Service is great, in the bar or restaurant. Be sure to check it out...

Best spot for seafood...

Truly the best seafood spot in Denver! Fish is mesquite grilled, boneless and fresh! Their calamari is to die for! Never had a bad meal or service. And that's what 20 yrs says about a restaurant that still packs them in! Last time we dined with the Fresh Fish company, which is usually twice a month, the food was spectacular! Our server was awesome, (I've seen her there everytime we go) I think she's been at the restaurant as long as they've been open! probably keep her around just b/c of her amazing ability to make you feel like your dining at a good friends home. Between the food and the service, the owners of FFC should be proud!

Wonderful Seafood and Great Service!!!!!!!!

Since moving to Denver from So. California 18 years ago I have yet to find another seafood restaurant that compares to the Fresh Fish Co. The service is always excellent and the fish always fresh. Whenever I am in the mood for seafood they will always be my first choice. Keep up the great work!!!!!!!
