    Over priced below average food, limited menu. We had been wanting to try Jax for a while so went for our anniversary and we were very disappointed in the food and the menu. The waiter was ok the food was mot equal to the prices. We wont be going back, we should have gone to Bonefish which is much better and priced right.

    Sat outside so it was quiet. Food was not quite as good as it has been in the past. Salmon Poke was yum, halibut was fine-not great, Ono-after the waiter said they cook it rare-was over cooked and dry, flavors just weren't terrific. I was my go to....makes me sad!

    Every time I eat here it is better than the last, and last time was great. The oysters were amazing, super fresh, just wonderful. They had run out of the happy hour oyster, but substituted a different one without us even requesting they do so. The entrees were super, and just the right size. Everything was great.

    Surprisingly limited menu for a seafood restaurant. For example, fried shrimp for a main course is not an option. Some dishes contained shrimp and but any type of shrimp as a main course was not an option. The food that was offered was absolutely delicious. The prices were a bit excessive even for a seafood restaurant.

    We have gone to JAX at least a dozen times and are usually pleased...the bar is awesome, but table seating leaves a bit to be desired. Some nights we have fabulous food and service and other nights ,not so much! We love the "hi-JAX" open deck upstairs, the view is beautiful, especially at sunset. It is definitely a "hot-spot" so I recommend reservations. The Oysters are always fresh and delicious,they are our faves!

    I had the mussels which I don't typically have in Denver due to freshness issues. I must say that the mussel dish served at Jax was as fresh as it can possibly be. But pasta? How about moules et frites? Traditional, yes, but SO good. Ambience is quite noisy, too. It's probably because of so many people raving about the food.

    we arrived at 9p on a saturday night - not really prime time in denver. the restaurant - usually packed and lively - was dead, so maybe that explains the service, which was also dead. for being practically the only people there you would think the service would have been fabulous. Not so. When we did get service the staff was very nice. Our waiter went out of his way to bring us stronger drinks when we mentioned that the ones we were served were weak. the food was good. boiled shrimp were spicy and terrific, though not really 'jumbo'. mussels were great and the best part of the visit. overall a c+.

    We're happy to have a Jax Fish House in our neighborhood! The food is delicious, and I like that they concentrate on selling sustainable fish. The Buttermilk Bread and sweet butter is a favorite starter for the whole family. The oysters are great, and the salads are fresh and imaginative. All four of us enjoyed our dinner! Thanks Jax!

    Jax was a big disappointment. From the service to the food it was not the jax downtown!! The coffee was lukewarm,the quiche was cold. The flank steak was so tough I couldn't even chew it. Left most of it on the plate. The worst piece of meat that I have ever been served. I felt very disappointed because I took a friend to the restaurant and gave it a big +++ but was so embarrassed because it was so bad. I wish I could say something good about my brunch but unfortunately I can't.

    The chef has mastered some of the best sides with her proteins we 'be ever had. Went Friday night for dinner. Went back the next night to take out the sides: amazing Tater Tots, cornbread with crawfish velouté, pork and cabbage. My daughter and her fiancée had the Snickers dessert and said it was the best dish of the dinner. In the Glendale shopping center so parking free and convenient.

    Some issues with the food this time (like forgot the garlic in the garlic fries!). Also, need to watch the pricing. We were there during Happy Hour; however, when ordering additional appetizers with dinner, the prices went to the dinner price, not the Happy Hour price...clever "bait and switch", cost us an additional $15 on the dinner tab.

    If it wasn't for the food, I would have said our experience at Jax Glendale was poor. The service was slow, the server forgot to place our drink orders, the whole evening we saw him maybe 3 times. The food runner and man who refilled our waters deserved the tip that night, not our server. Won't be coming back to this location.

    JAX in Glendale is the largest space of the JAX chain we have dined in. The decor is upbeat, modern, comfortable, and airy. The food preparation was better than previous dining experiences. I was taken by the "freshly prepared by order seafood soup". Yummy. Another compliment to the pastry chef for deliciously prepared ice cream brownie sundae. With the hot chocolate brownie , the fresh chocolate chip mini- cookies were just too much sugar overload. But delicious anyhow. Cocktail from the bar were nicely prepared and quickly served with a smile. Definitely a highlight of the Glendale dining scene that we will return to. P.S. The upstairs outdoor patio is another plus.

    Great place, has a more modern interior than the one in the old loft building downtown. Food is excellent. Service at the bar outstanding. Service once we got to our table dropped a bit, but she was still quite friendly. We were there for a birthday dinner (just two of us), and we especially appreciate how nice they were about the birthday. We'll definitely be back, especially to test out the rooftop deck on one of our few non-rainy nights.

    When deciding on a bottle of Chardonnay, we were directed to a $55.00 bottle. Our glasses were brought to the table and after about a 5 minute wait, we were told that they did not have the bottle we ordered, but that the $65.00 bottle was recommended. Usually a restaurant that does not have a bottle ordered, would gladly give you the next higher priced wine for the same price as was originally ordered....well, not Jax! We left and will most likely never return. Get it right Jax.
