    I am relatively new to the Denver area but I am told that this restaurant has been around for quite some time. That must be how they have perfected the art of great food and courteous, fun service. Our waitress was as entertaining as she was efficient. Looking forward to returning!

    For my entree I got the cold seafood platter because I wanted oysters. I told him all I wanted on the side for the platter was mignonette sauce and lemons because that's what I like on my cold seafood. He said ok. The food arrives and my platter had cocktail sauce and horseradish. Come to find out they don't even have the sauce. If the server would have known that and told me I would have ordered something else. The sauce part wasn't even really the kicker as it was the staff including the manager looking at me and my guest crazy because we were upset about the sauce and the whole situation. I have been to plenty of seafood restaurants that don't have mignonette sauce but they at least knew what it was and was willing to make some. No clue

    Shellfishforever
    Dined on 7/7/2014
    The whiskey sour had an odd non-alcoholic flavor (they replaced it, but didn't care for the second either). The lobster was tough, maybe undercooked? It was fairly tasteless. Understand I have come there off and on for years, and in the past felt their shellfish dinners and service were invariably superb. Sunday brunch in the past was oversubscribed, so a bit hard to get your food; and some of it was a bit stale.

    My lobster was bad. My husband's was good. I returned mine and the hostess brought me a shrimp cocktail (gratis) to "munch on" while a new lobster was cooked for me. The new one was delicious. It was a good experience but you never know when you order live lobster. I had a similar experience in Maine where they are caught.

    The food and service were quite acceptible. The overall look and feel of the place is old and tired, which detracts from what would otherwise be a fine meal. We had good appetizers - shrimp coctail and ceviche. And the main courses - escolar and halibut were very tasty. There was plenty to eat and we took some home as well.

    Everything from the appetizer to the main course was aweful. Even my Cesar salad was terrible. Everything lacked taste, and my crab legs were served to me half frozen! I would not recommend this place to anyone, ever. Horrible food at even more horrible prices. Judging from the lack of patrons, I will assume many feel the same as me. Do not waste your time and money on The Fresh Fish Company.

    A friend recommended it for my wife's birthday. I had the swordfish which was excellent. My wife had a fillet with lobster which was the best she ever had. Service was beyond excellent. Prices were moderate for the area. I do not think you could find a better place for the food and service within a moderate price range. It was just perfect. For my wife's birthday she received a discount equal to her age. You just can not beat the dining experience in the Denver area. Remember it is a fish place.

    For this FishLovin'Foodie, I was really disappointed in my experience on Friday, June 13th. The servers did not appear to have assigned tables and we waited for :10 for menus after asking for a server. We waited another :10 for drinks and again, waited for over :10 for bread after asking for it. We also asked to order... This is not the service I have seen in the past. Our reservation was booked for 7pm and our party of 4 was seated at 7:20. This was very disappointing for our party. The food has always been good, but service is just as important. We hope it improves soon.

    We had gone here about 6 months ago and it was great so I wanted to go back but this time the food wasn't so good. We had got the crab cake appetizers and they were alright but nothing to tell friends about. I had gotten the steak and shrimp special and once it again it was just alright. My husband had gotten the filet with the crab cake on top with hollandaise sauce, this crab cake tasted like it had gone bad and the hollandaise sauce was one of the worse ones I have ever tasted. I don't think we will be going back anytime soon.

    I made a reservation for 11 of my friends and family to join me for my birthday. The service was horrible. The server was rude, and was rushing us to order, and was rude to a few of my family and friends. As someone who has worked in the food service industry, this was absolutely unacceptable. We also tried to order some raw oysters for an appetizer. They were out of all but 2 kinds. When the food arrived it was bland or not editable. Do not go here for full meal service. I have heard it is good for happy hour, but only because it is so cheap. Avoid this restaurant.
