Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I flew in to Denver from out of state this past weekend and visited the Creek Seafood Grill for dinner on Sat with friends. This was one of our favorite restaurants when we lived in Denver, and we were certainly not disappointed this weekend. The food was superb as always. We especially enjoyed the cheese/meat appetizer, and Thomas recommended that I get the shrimp and grits entrée -- it was absolutely outstanding! EVERYONE at the table agreed they will get it on their next visit. The portions were perfect as well. This restaurant never lets us down, and we will continue to visit them anytime we are in the Denver area."

  • "I have dined at this restaurant numerous times over the last three years, since the changing of the name, the dining experience has slowly declined. The new decor, while fresher is not done in colors that define a quality establishment. The hues of the colors are too bold. The menu offers less eclectic fair and the quality of the ingredients has suffered. Recently, I had the pasta dish, while the flavor was nice, the pasta was not homemade and the shrimp were smaller and less juicy that in the past. The bright spot is that the owners have kept the live music as an attraction. I would recommend this restaurant for summer dining, once the bar is opened to the patio, and order starters and cocktails only."

  • "The food was exceptional. Shrimp and grits - the best. Scallops and crab ravioli were wonderful. We were expecitng it to be a little quieter, but the bar noise carries into the restaurant."

  • "We've enjoyed this rest. several times.The food always has an excellent presentation, is a little diferent--nice variety...the Chef Paul comes by to check on the meal, etc. which is a special touch! Servers are friendly and rest. is clean!"

  • "Our waitress (Laurie) was excellent! She was very friendly & was knowledgeable about the dishes & at our table the perfect amount of time. The Scallops & Crab Ravioli were just amazing! Best scallops I've ever had, cooked to perfection. We had the Calamari, which was delicious, however this isn't your typical hide the Calamari in breading and deep fry it, they were out in the open in this delicious lobster sauce. Made it kind of hard to eat to see the "little guys" but we got through it & they were very good! We also tried out the banana split for dessert, the homemade ice cream & caramelized bananas were awesome! Many reviews have said this is an "old people" place to eat. Me & hubby are both around 30 and we loved it!"

  • "I work downtown but selected this location for 2 reasons, quiiet & quaint, to our surprise the food was wonderful! We all started with the mushroom soup, full of mushrooms, great flavor, BUT not too salty. Most restuarants use too much salt! Lobster tacos, Shrimp pasta, & Shimp salad were the entrees...all very fresh and clean tasting. The desserts were really spot on, the chocolate cake stellar and pecan tart nice. Our server, Lori was well informed, very good and pleasant. We live north so I am sad that it is so far away. Will definetly use for lunch ans special occasions! Its a gem"

  • "We had wanted to try this small neighborhood restaurant for quite some time. The cioppino was actually one of the best we'd had in town (my husband ordered this too - we both love it!). Cool guitar player playing in the back - nice! Unfortunately, the lights were on so high that the ambiance was completely destroyed. We could see every guest's face all the way to the back of the restaurant - no intimacy here! Our server treated us as if he couldn't wait to get home that night...flew by with that second glass of wine - no time to pick up the empty one! Not too enthused about anything either. Could have been a great experience, but when the lights are too bright for an evening dinner and the waiter doesn't care... we won't be back soon."

  • "Went for 5280. Way too much food but I guess they want you to get your money's worth. Can't really complain about too much food. Lobster tacos were excellent."

  • "We went there for restaurant week and had to wait 20 minutes for a table even though we were on time for our 830p reservation. Two of us order the crab pasta and it had a fishy taste. Two of the appetizers were very good--the wedge salad and the crab fritters (not fishy). Also one of the two dessert choices they were out of. We liked the atmosphere and perhaps may try again, but not during Denver Restaurant Week."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I went here during restaurant week because I love seafood, and wanted to try a new place. I don't think I would go out of my way to come back. If I was close by, sure I would stop in but it's not worth traveling to otherwise. The food was good, but it wasn't great really. I expect a restaurant to flaunt their best stuff during restaurant week, and this was not impressive. The normal prices are high for what it is. It's in a strip mall, although they have tried to make you forget that the ceiling gives it away. One high point from the evening was the excellent service we received. I think we were the only people in the place under fifty except the staff, which isn't a bad thing necessarily but in this case it was."

  • "My husband and I went here for 5280. On the outside it doesn't look like it would be a nice restaurant but inside there was a nice bar and dining area and a small 3 man band playing fun upbeat music. The food was good and service was good as well."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Small portions, menu is not as good as before the name change/remodel. Still too many tables crammed into a small space. Felt like every word spoken could be heard by surrounding tables."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We very much enjoyed the food and menu selections offered during restaurant week. We will be back to this restaurant for dinner."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Food and wine were spot on. We went for 6020 (formerly known as 5280) and had a great meal. Everything was awesome except for the bread pudding which was a bit dry. Otherwise, it was a perfect evening. We're going back for our anniversary in a few months!"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "The service started off a little slow but he recovered later. The food was very good and the portion size was great. We had a nice dinner."

  • "I found this little gem while searching for a restaurant nearby a client's office. When I booked this restaurant on open table, it listed two different names, The Creek Seafood Grill and Pesce Fresca. I'm not sure if this is new ownership or just a change in names. The restaurant is located in a strip mall and is very deceiving from the outside. But once inside, the décor is tastefully done and inviting. The service was excellent, the food even better. Small menu that a "foodie" would love. I will definitely revisit this restaurant."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I love coming here to eat. They have a great drink menu and shareable plates. When we have dinner I always get the fish special. The fish dishes are always great. Also amazing service and friendly owner. Definitely recommend trying this place for dinner and will definitely keep coming back."

  • "The restaurant is beautiful! The restroom is just ehhhhhhhh!!!! Work on it ! It doesn't seem to fit the ambiance of the place!"

  • "It was 5280 week, so it was very busy. I'm sure on any other night it wouldn't have been so packed."

  • "Atmosphere was nice - tables a little tight. Live music was good. The food was good. Service needs help. From greeting to busing to wait er - all needs to be improved to give a better rating. I would give it one more visit."

  • "My husband and I first went to this restaurant when it was Saffron. We enjoyed lobster tacos and the lobster pasta with caviar. Wow, both were amazing! Kelsie, our waitperson, was attentive and efficient, we had a great time and will be back soon, great job!"

  • "Fish was dry and disappointing. Not certain I will return."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "We had the scallops and salmon. The salmon was cooked to perfection and the sauce was very good. However, the portion was extremely small (4 oz or less). It was not worth 27.00. The scallops were undercooked (centers were like jelly), making her 28.00 entree inedible. Furthermore, it was tough to pay 9.00, per plate, for the dinner salads. This restaurant is extremely overpriced and serves poor quality and low quantity. There is no value for the money."

  • "After only one visit I am unable to rate the items above. Our table of four found The Creek most enjoyable and we would return. The food was very good and the waitress was wonderful and a real treat."

  • "Met with a client at this restaurant and had a great time. The service was excellent without being intrusive, recommendations were made and everything came out well prepared, well plated and all at once. We will definitely use this location again for my DTC client meetings."

  • "This was the second time we had dined here. This visit was disappointing due to the fact when I tried to order a cocktail the waiter informed me that they didn't have any mint forcing me to change my drink selection. He presented the two items on special almost as an afterthought and in addition said if we wanted either the mussels or clams off the appetizer list they had none. My date ordered a fish special which due to how the fish had been cut was overcooked and dry on one end the other thicker end was underdone. It was served with a risotto that was thick and way too saucy. I'm wondering if they are going to last since they seem to be out of items that evening. Thinking I probably will not dine there again."
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "The fish was a mushy, overcooked mess, although the sauce and vegetables could have been a hit. The gnocchi was so undercooked, it was rock hard."

  • "The Creek Seafood Grill was quite a pleasant surprise inside, beautifully decorated and a perfect atmosphere for a birthday dinner with my husband. The service was excellent and very attentive when required, but not overbearing. They did a wonderful job of explaining the specials, and in fact we ordered both. The drinks were amazing, especially the Margarita made with jalapeno infused tequila. They gave my husband a special dessert on the house and even put a candle in it! The only thing I would have changed was the food I ordered, the fish could have used a bit more flavor. I will most definitely go back!"

  • "The clam penne pasta had very little clam and was covered in what tasted like Alfredo sauce from a jar. My wife ate so little of it she had to have a snack when she got home. I had a fish special and it tasted very good, but was very over priced for what it was."
