    Outstanding management, by Karen. Dined there 11/15/14, and have dined there many times before over the years. The Canadian halibut was perfectly prepared, and as a result was delicious. Our waitress, Jessica, overlooked us on the bar service, but after she was told about it she took excellent care of us for the rest of the meal. If you go here, order one of the high quality fish items--salmon or halibut--and you will be glad you did.

    This is our semiannual trip for our birthdays, and for someone who is not picky about their food (my husband) he did not enjoy it. The Coho salmon that he had was just okay, and the rice pilaf was not great. My pasta dish that I had was very tasty. So not sure if it was a off night or what, but I told him next time to order off the menu instead of using the special list that they gave us.

    Doesn't matter if it is salad or accompanying dish, the seafood is always the freshest to be had in abundance. You are never rushed through your dining experience. The staff makes you feel as if you are the most important patron in the restaurant. It is the perfect way to start a week by dining at the SUNDAY brunch. A favorite place the take the entire family. Very friendly place for young family members, too!

    This week go to The Fresh Fish Company if you love crab. We split the crab trio and it comes with 2 sides. WE had the crab/corn bisque and it was excellent. We try to make it to dinner during this week every year. It is great!! Best Cheese Cake in town. We dine here frequently. We went next door and went dancing right afterwards.

    One of the few fish restaurants in Denver serving really FRESH fish, the overall preparation of some of the dishes was mediocre at best. King crab legs which were featured as a special event, were overcooked and dry, as was the salmon which was ordered by one of our party. Overall, the meal was acceptable but could have been much better with some more care in the preparation.

    Only thing on brunch worth praising was the included mimosa and the crab legs. Every thing else was about as good as the old Furr's Cafeteria food(a chain that went out of business awhile ago I might add). Service was polite but absent a lot. I had to get up and find my own coffee refill and had to find the waiter to get our check.

    Nice touch, adding a small candle to the dessert (recognition of the event, yet not embarrassingly loud). Some mix-up on the reservation (someone else self-identified as our party and were seated first, at a "better" table); heard several comments from staff about what a crazy shift this was as the evening wore down; overlooked our soup order; did not refill water until end of meal time. However, our waiter and the rest of the staff made up for these smaller glitches. I will definitely dine here again soon.

    This restaurant is somewhat expensive but if you join their birthday club, at least once a year you can eat some really good fish (even the prime rib is good) for a decent price. I would go there more often if it didn't take me 45 minutes-1 hour to drive there.

    We have been patrons of the Fresh Fish company for as long as I can remember, probably about 30 years. While the food was very good during this last dining experience, which was to celebrate my mother's birthday, the portions were noticeably smaller. I got the mixed grille, which I often do, and the combination of the three fish was about half the size of a normal fish fillet. I very much want to support our local businesses, and with competition like Bonefish Grill less than 5 minutes away, everyone in my party mentioned they'd prefer to dine there in the future. I want Fresh Fish Company to succeed, but I think they need to see what their competition is up to in order to remain competitive and attract diners.

    We went to Fresh Fish Company to celebrate my wife's birthday. With the OpenTable.com reservation, we were seated within five minutes of arriving even though it was at 6:30 on a Friday evening. The service was outstanding, the portions were really satisfying (bigger than the last time we were there - if I remember correctly), and the preparation of the fish was excellent. For desert, you should try the "Mud pie" if you go.

    Fresh Fish seems always busy which is a good sign, and a sign that their marketing (birthdays) is works. This time the servers seem over-loaded so brusque and in a hurry. It seems to work for the typical clientele. This visit was average.
