    Great place, as always, to celebrate my wife's B'Day...ALWAYS have loved the B'Day discount. Food and wine were excellent...and Lindsay, our server, was personable and cheerful...not just with us, but I could hear her as she worked her other tables as well. BTW -- our busboy was very welcoming...just can't remember his name!

    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 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.

    Beware large parties, our server ignored us after a large party was seated next to us. We were celebrating a special occasion as well but had to keep asking for beverages to be refilled. This is usually such a dependable, lovely restaurant but that experience really added a sour note.

    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.

    Our family has dined at this restaurant for many years. We dine for special occasions or just casual events and often have had only the two of us or included family and friends. We can always count on everything--especially the food and the service being excellent. We are also members of their birthday club.

    We went to this place for my birthday dinner.The whole place was very noisy and had some kids with bad manners next to our table.Both of our orders were wrong and we had to wait for one another to to get our respective meals. My lobster tail did not taste good. The missing mashed potatoes were very good after finally getting them. All in all it was not a good night out.

    I have been to this restaurant before and had better service but that was 15yrs ago. A lot has changed since then. The service was well below what I had expected.We waited 15 minutes for the server to come by and take drink orders. Once the drink orders came we ordered apps.Most of them were good...and the display was nice. In between eating the apps we had to continually hunt down our server to get more drinks. This whole time she seem disheveled and clearly had too many tables to take care of. Next was the main course....this was disappointing. Everyones food was barley room temp. Nothing was hot including my lobster I ordered. Overall we spent $400(6 people) for a Fresh Fish Experience and we would have been better off going elsewhere.

    The food and everything related to the restaurant was excellent. HOWEVER, I was very unhappy to learn that OpenTable DID NOT send my invite to my dining partner. As a result she didn't show and I ended up eating alone. I was celebrating my birthday, and alone was not how I had planned it!

    We dine here every now and then. Yes, the decor is a bit dated but the fish is always delicious and prepared perfectly. The reason I don't give them 4 stars on food is due to the side dishes. I realize and appreciate that the fish should be the star, but I find the side dishes lacking. This visit I ordered the garlic mashed potatoes for the first time and found them to be pasty. The servers are always knowledgeable and friendly. On this last visit, our server, while friendly and pleasant, was a bit slow in bringing our drinks and taking our order and then again at bringing our check.
