    My husband and I went here for our anniversary. The owner greeted us by name and made us feel at home. The food was so good! I would go back again and again.

    First of all, reservations were not ay all needed, we were one of maybe 5 tables of people in the restaurant. The outside appearance/location was not appealing, looked like we were about to walk in to some strip mall bar. Music selection was very nice. The staff/owner were fabulous and took great care of us! Food was just ok, I expected more from what I read online, dessert was the best! It was an interesting experience, not what I was expecting for our anniversary though.

    Wine list was pretty indifferent; overall, very limited bar. Appetizer -- crab cakes -- were soft and a bit salty; would not order again. Entrees -- a grill combination, and a shrimp offering -- were quite good. Service was prompt and attentive without being intrusive -- always a plus. Ambience was nice in the sense that it was quiet (unobtrusive and relaxing background music) though overall seating and room arrangements were average. Interesting glass gallery. Except for the appetizer, it was a good value: entrees were good and the ambience allowed for comfortable, relaxed conversation.

    This is a neighborhood restaurant in an unassuming strip mall surrounded by glitzy chain restaurants ... but the food is superb. Fresh fish cooked to order over a real mesquite grill (you could smell it from the parking lot) was a real treat. The owner personally cooked the food and delivered it to our table, and was justifiably proud of his work. Further, the wait staff of one was attentive and helpful. If you're stuck in the Denver Tech Center's myriad of cookie cutter restaurants, give this one a try.

    We were pleasantly surprised by this quaint restaurant in a small strip mall on Arapahoe Rd. Everything was delicious from bread, baked fresh to some of the best fish we have had in Denver. Can't wait to go back!

    Very good food and service, quiet restaurant atmosphere, good neighborhood spot, pretty inexpensive though they have a number of things to upswell you like sauces that should just come on the food

    This restaurant was an unexpected pleasure. The quality and service were really amazing considering the full house on Valentines Day. We had the King Salmon and Fillet Mignon with Lobster Tail. Both cooked over the mesquite fire and was spot on perfect! The home made Key Lime was superb... one of the best I've ever had. Definitely plan on visiting here again.

    Service was very good despite a busy evening. The decor doesn't meet the quality of the food.

    Service was super slow Crab cakes served to us noticeably burned The best part of my meal was the rice My husband enjoyed his steak and said it was cooked perfectly We don't mind paying more for good food and service but this was priced too high for what we received

    Who we thought to be the owner was very congenial. We waited what seemed like eternity before we were greated. We enjoyed the food. The wine and wine choices needed much more work. The ambience is a C but the restaurant was very clean.

  • Too busy on Valentine's Day
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    We had a table for two on Valentine's Day. The place was packed, and the service couldn't keep up. We were seated promptly, but waited a long time for everything else. We heard complaints from adjoining tables too. It probably wouldn't be a problem on a regular night. The food was very good, if a little pricey. The atmosphere was a little strange. Generally when I spend more than $100 for two people I'm not sitting at a cheap table in a strip mall. That probably wouldn't have bothered me if the service had been better.

    My husband and I tried Mesquite Grill from the recommendations on Open Table for Valentine's Dinner. It far exceeded our expectations. It is a small dining room with a "family" atmosphere but with nice linens on the tables and wonderful service. My husband ordered grouper and I ordered sea bass. We each had the lemon basil sauce on top. It was quite wonderful. The full bar was a nice surprise and we could order wine from a modest list or mixed drinks. Our wine and Long Island Iced Tea were great. The fish was served with rice and roasted potatoes. Both were good but I really missed something green on the plate. It was just the right spot for a quiet, not crazy dining experience on Valentine's Day. I would recommend it any day of the week.

    Food was good, but my Lobster Tail was raw in the middle, and we had to order two full main dishes each, and still left hungry. Very Small portions, with a large price. We wont be going back.

    The kind of small, family owned restaurant where you meet the owners, receive personal attention and are able to relax and enjoy a drink, some win, and a very good meal. Not in our usual part of town but worth the drive - if we lived in the neighborhood we'd be regulars.
