    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/16/2014
    My husband and I met at the bar next door (the Proof) 20 years ago so we thought it would be fun to dine at the Fresh Fish Company and then go next door to The Proof to celebrate our 20th anniversary. I want to note that we were unaware that we could have received a discount if we had signed up online beforehand: we paid full price for our meals. I ordered the halibut with the Oscar topping and my husband ordered the rock lobster tail. Because these were two of the highest pricied items on the menu, we assumed that the food would be fantastic. Unfortunately, both entrees were disappointing. His lobster was overdone and my Oscar topping was very scant. Not what we would have expected. The service, however, was excellent!

    I have been going to the Fresh Fish Company for over 25 years and it is consistently the best food and service around. The calamari is to die for - I don't even like calamari, and I must have it every time I go...it has spoiled me for having it anywhere else - I refuse! The fish seriously rivals seafood I've had on the coast - amazing to find the best seafood in the middle of the United States! I highly recommend this restaurant...obviously!

    I had been wanting to go to this restaurant for years...just never seemed to make it to that end of town, so I was excited to finally try it. Walking in you are hit with a small as though you just walked into a fish store. We were sat in a booth that was falling apart and squeaking, then given a dirty look when we asked to be moved. Not sure what was worse since we were moved to a seat located under the stereo speaker - static was on the station. When asked if they could please tune in the station so we were not listening to static we were told the manager is very sensitive about the stereo system and he would be offended by us asking. By the time we left there I had a headache from listening to static through the whole dinner.

    I brought a dear friend to celebrate his birthday - partly because I knew he may have never been here and partly because I knew I could save money ... :-) We were immediately greeted and very soon seated. From the moment we arrived, we could not have asked for better service. The waitress was especially attentive, right down to having the kitchen allow our meal to progress leisurely. The gentleman who worked with her was conscientious in keeping our table neat, and very cordial in casual conversations. The food was above and beyond expectations. And the price was wonderful ~ especially with the birthday discount. Will we be back? Of course!

    to tell your server to NOT OVERCOOK YOUR FISH! I've had them ruin many a meal, and now I'm just adament about having the server tell the cook to not overcook my meal! If you do this, you'll be happy! I also recommend some simple preparation rather than some sauced up, fancy schmancy offering. Join their birthday club and enjoy a discount equal to your age two weeks before or after your birthday (I think that's the deal). Truly great Oysters Rockefeller!

  • Stuck in the 90s
    mmmcd65
    Dined on 8/11/2014
    Everything here; from the decor, to the menu, to the manager's hairstyle, was stuck in the early 90s. The menu is ENORMOUS and there is no way any cook could master that many dishes. There were four of us in my group and all of our sides were pretty good, however the entrees (all seafood) were very poor. My scallops were obviously cooked on too cold of a surface and for too long of a time (they were barely seared and were quite rubbery). The entrees of all my dining companions were pretty much the same (improperly prepared). They would do well to cut the menu down to 10 - 15 dished that they can do really well (this would also improve their food cost as they wouldn’t have to carry so much inventory).

    I went to the Fresh fish co to celebrate my Birthday with my family..what better way than a all you can eat Sunday fish buffet with a complementary glass of champagne! The Service was well-timed and friendly, I was over whelmed by choice and was delighted that the restaurant had more to offer than just fish. My husband had lots of choices and the Santa fae eggs being a bit hit. My daughter especially loved the 2 chocolate fountains and ice-cram machine!

    My True Cod was way too salty, other than that, everything was ok. Also, why doesn't the kid's menu have decent fish choices? My kids had to order off the adult menu with no sides. The fish portions were too big for them. Anyway, we won't be returning. There are too many better restaurants for fish in the Denver area. This was ok, but not worth the price.

    The fresh fish co is always a pleasant treat for a birthday. The food continues to delight but the service was not up to par. The server just was not around. While in the middle of taking our order she said she had to take care of something and left us hanging. Weird experience. However we will go again for the next birthday for the lovely discount.

    We had a lovely dinner at Fresh Fish Co. Went for a birthday (if you are signed up you get your age off as a percentage of your meal....taking my 94 year old dad later this year!). I had the escolar with capers/lemon and crab on top....It was wonderfully grilled and not fishy at all. Had the crab stuffed mushrooms...very rich with a sauce to dip your bread in if you're not in "high" company. Regualr house salad, nothing special. too full for any desserts. The rest of my group did steaks and prime rib (why? they are at a fish place?) All said their meals were good!

    One food item, a side of chili tomatoes, was unacceptable due to being very sweet. The menu did not state this. I was not able to get the attention of anyone in the restaurant to remedy this for several minutes until the waitress, finally, returned to check on us. At that point it was quickly resolved, but I was not happy with the way my attempts to catch someones attention were ignored nor the long wait for the return of the waitress. I was half way done with my meal before she returned. Yes, the restaurant was busy. This is no excuse. Anyone of a number of employees that passed by the table, ignoring us, could have rectified the problem. Every restaurant employee knows that a guest looking around is in need of something. That's 101.

    We made a reservation for 7:15pm for dinner. Got there and they had us down for 7:30pm. Ok, not a great start. Then people off the street were being seated before us at empty tables while we still sat for 45 minutes waiting for a table. Complained to the host but she was confused. We finally got a table and ordered swordfish and scallops. I have to admit that it was the toughest swordfish I've ever had, very overcooked. I could only eat three bites before I gave up. I mentioned it to the staff but since we had had trouble with the reservation, I guess we were ignored about the fish. The wife's scallops were good, however.

    For my entree I got the cold seafood platter because I wanted oysters. I told him all I wanted on the side for the platter was mignonette sauce and lemons because that's what I like on my cold seafood. He said ok. The food arrives and my platter had cocktail sauce and horseradish. Come to find out they don't even have the sauce. If the server would have known that and told me I would have ordered something else. The sauce part wasn't even really the kicker as it was the staff including the manager looking at me and my guest crazy because we were upset about the sauce and the whole situation. I have been to plenty of seafood restaurants that don't have mignonette sauce but they at least knew what it was and was willing to make some. No clue
