    I was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease and must eat gluten free. This restaurant and our server are excellently prepared to deal with this demand. A large portion of the menu is gluten free and clearly notes what is. Our server asked at the initial greeting of us if anyone wanted gluten free bread (it was surprisingly good). The food was good, and the service was excellent.

    Have been to FFC several times for their Copper River Salmon, a seasonal treat. This was first time actually using their birthday club, claiming 63% off the price of luscious halibut just for being a geezer. My beef-eating friend had prime rib and it was an outstanding piece of meat. You will enjoy yourself if you go to the Fresh Fish Company.

    The Fresh Fish Company is one of our favorites. I had Salmon Oscar (outstanding) and not sure what my husband had, but know he liked it! They are always friendly, helpful and nice. Sat by the big fish tank...what fun. Huge fish swimming right by us. Love this place!

    The food and service is always good at The Fresh Fish Company. Went for an anniversary dinner. Even though we enjoyed the meal very much, it's not a romantic place or place where you linger over a meal - we were in and out in less than an hour.

    This is the best fish restaurant we have tried in all of our travels.It was reasonably priced, which didn't hurt! Being from Nebraska we don't get to indulge in such luxuries. The Rainbow trout and Escargot were excellent. The service was fast and friendly. A must try if in the area!!

    Great place for brunch and awesome deal for all you can eat crab legs! The hickory smoked salmon was my favorite. Not sure if I would eat there for anything other than brunch...but maybe! It's an older restaurant inside but brunch was delicious! They had everything you could want for brunch.

    My parents live in Denver, and the Fresh Fish Company has always been one of their favorites - both for dinner and Sunday Brunch. The Sunday Brunch spread is always nice, with hot and cold dishes/salads, omelet station, lots of fish choices and sweets too! The staff (Karen Maitre d'/owner) recognizes my dad and always make a point to stop and say Hi - THANKS!

    The Maine lobster special was fabulous! Cooked perfect, lots of butter kept warm on the sterno. Side dishes of salad and red potatoes were the perfect compliment to the meal. The wine selection is awesome, the Riesling was perfect for the lobster entree. Not a huge beer selection. Great meal. Friendly staff. Keep it up! Make reservations or you may wait and get hungrier!

    My friend, Patty and I have birthdays 4 days apart and were born in 1950. We've made it a tradition to meet at least once a year and catch up on things. She lives there in Denver and I live in Gardner. (About 180 miles away) My wife and I have known Patty for over 40 years and The Fresh Fish Company has always been the perfect venue for such a get together. Very much worth the trip there. Thank you for excellent service and great food. As they say, "The ambiance is impeccable."

    Went during Restaurant Week and the menu was great! Had the prime rib and garlic shrimp, clam chowder. Also there were four of us. 3 had the special of prime rib. The sides were steamed vegies(a little overcooked), sweet chili tomatoes(good) and parsley red potatoes(good). My husband had the gigantic lobster for his 77th birthday! Loved it and the chocolate mousse. It was interesting to note how many tables around us were celebrating a birthday to get the discount. The server was GREAT!

    We have been regulars at Fresh Fish Co since late 2010 and this most recent visit was very disappointing when compared with all of our prior visits. One of our first visits was to sample the then "5280" menu and made a great impression. We've taken out of town guests and neighbors, always with great food and service. So we decided to take some friends who really enjoy dining out and the overall experience was mediocre at best. Service started ok, then disappeared, then finally had to track down manager to get correct billing for wine. Screaming kids running around the aisles was not only annoying but dangerous for them. One toddler knocked a wrought iron wall hanging off the hook and thankfully didn't get injured. Food was ok.

The fish tanks they have all over are quite enjoyable to watch, give one a calming effect so you can enjoy your dinner even more. The service is impeccable, really, you must try this place at least once and you'll return & return & return, just as we did.

    This restaurant is old, and looks it. It is stuck in an 80's time warp and not in a good way. Which is too bad because the food is so good! But we have a hard timing paying for fine dining when we don't get the full experience of a more modern dining room. Our server was efficient and knowledgeable but honestly, he didn't imbibe a fine dining attitude of being friendly, conversational and concerned about us as diners. The menu is so informative letting you easily know which fishes are farmed and which are wild caught. Gluten free items are underlined for easy selection. They even have gluten free bread! If you only care about good food this is your place. If you want an overall dining experience, you might want to go someplace else.

    I heard this place used to be the only place on Denver to get seafood, well I would say it's now the worst place. The restaurant is so run down looking we should have exited before being seated. The food was also terrible! Salad was wilted, fried food was just gross. Dry, greasy and thick batter on everything from calamari and crab cakes to kids chicken fingers! Seriously don't waist your money. Even the fries were bad.

    We had a wonderful meal at Fresh Fish Company on Hampden Ave. I haven't had red snapper since leaving Maryland in 1986. It was delightful! Others tried the rainbow trout, Alaskan Salmon and the Blackened Grouper. Wonderfully prepared with excellent sauces on the side. We all sampled each others fish and sauces. Even the desserts were great. Our waiter Edward came around the perfect amount of times. He gave us time to enjoy our meal, but kept checking just often enough to meet our needs. We will definitely eat here again!

    I heard about this restaurant on 710 KNUS and though it worth checking out for my wife's birthday. With her food allergies, I decided to call ahead. Karen, one of the owners, returned my call and researched the food allergies so I knew we had a good shot of eating there without incident. For seafood lovers, I rate this place a SCORE!! My wife had the scallops--great portions that didn't leave you hungry. I had the pistachio sea bass--both a big YUM! Our waitress was diligent in gathering information about specific dishes to assure my wife she could safely eat. It's a bit of a hike from our home, but we will be back!
