Diner Reviews
  • "We used to eat here when it was an Italian Restaurant, but stopped because the manager was rude and argumentative. We noticed that the name had changed, and figured we would give it a chance, and are we ever glad we did. We met the new manager, Kellen, who brought us a free glass of wine just because it was our first time in to the new place! From there things only got better. The caprese made with Colorado peaches was outstanding, and the shrimp & grits was the best my husband or I have ever had. The service was was outstanding, and the place had a lively vibe. We are so glad this little neighborhood restaurant got rid of the rude manager, and replaced her with someone who is friendly and warm. We can't wait to come back."

  • "So very disappointed in menu selections...so limited compared to previous owner's selections. Specials were also limited with minimal fish selections. Would not go back or recommend to anyone. New staff, loved the old."

  • "We went for dinner, but ended ordering only from the appetizer menu. Every dish was superb. We had Peach Caprese, beets with feta,house salad with honey balsamic, the mussels, and the squid. It was all delicious."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "We have been going here for years and have never been disappointed. The menu is limited, but the focus is on quality. I always order that day's special because I know the fish is fresh. The calamari appetizer (not fried) was served in a wonderful broth with capers. The service was not rushed, and the wait staff was very friendly. Although not inexpensive, it is nice to have a locally owned restaurant that is trying to make every dining experience memorable."

  • "So glad we found this place! Have been searching for places to get good seafood (outside of the house). The lobster tacos are AMAZING; highly recommended! The cocktails are quite tasty and artfully crafted. The entire waitstaff was friendly and helpful; our waiter was quite patient with our inability to decide on options (so much deliciousness to choose from the menu!). Will definitely be returning!"

  • "Cute little Restaurant with great service and even better food. Both my wife and I were amazed at how well the food looked and tasted. It was nice when the chef came out to ask how everything was to pass these comments along to him personally. There's no doubt in our minds that we'll be coming back to this restaurant."

  • "We liked the food, it was a nice touch having one of the chefs deliver some of the food to the table. But $33 for 4 scallops and a couple of crab ravioli is a bit pricey. The lobster tacos are very good. The Hawaiian Prawns were also very good, but hard to each because the shells were burnt onto the meat and hard to remove."

  • "The 'Creek' is our favorite go-to restaurant in the DTC area year-round. Be aware that their summer menu is shortened a bit, very smart, I think since summer diners can be a bit if-fy at times. Had the best ever ruby red trout and all their fish and seafood is always the very freshest and prepared perfectly."

  • "We ate here Saturday night & ordered the Ono, but it was overcooked...very dry. We let our server know & the chef came out promptly & gave us the option of ordering the same dish or another special. We decided on the salmon...delicious! Not every chef would do that & we were really impressed with the service. Will definitely go back. Oh, the mussels are amazing! On a side note, we've eaten at this restaurant about five times & the food is always great!"

  • "The menu had a very limited selection and the food was certainly nothing special, and especially not good value for the price. I think the salad greens were probably from a package that came directly from the Safeway next door. The wine pour was meager at best and although the service was efficient I would characterize it as abrupt and unwelcoming. The "music" playing in the background was certainly inappropriate for an establishment that seems to want to price its meals as like in an upscale establishment. Would you believe country rock played by a local am radio station! Give me a break! If I wanted to hear that while dining I'd go to a bar-b-que joint with peanut shells on the floor and not spend $33 for four meager scallops."

  • "We have eaten here several times and it is consistently great! The chef does wonderful things with fish. We had the Blue Fin Tuna special with a very nice Pinot Noir. The tuna was seared perfectly and the tastes of the dish were outstanding. Adam, our server, recommended a new drink that my wife truely enjoyed. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "This re-branded spot has stepped it up a notch. Food is better and fresher. In the past there have been signs of "portion control" as in 30 bucks for a 4 ounce piece of frozen salmon? This visit was much improved. Delicious fresh trout, great lamb, good sides. If they keep up the improvements we will add them back into our rotation. Must admit though the wine list is still in need of work!"

  • "We have been going to this restaurant for years,even though a bit pricey for our budget. Were very disappointed. Happy hour was eliminated on Saturdays. I was looking forward to the sea bass on the menu online, but their "summer menu" had just begun and the prices were increased 15-20%! Their specials used to be in the mid $20 range, but all 3 were $33! They did add a soup or salad choice included with the entrees, but the salad was embarrassingly miniscule! The entrees were also decreased in size and I received no vegetables at all so my dish was very bland looking. The service was average, but the ambiance of past times is almost non existent. We will not return after patronizing this place for years. It is now priced out of our budget."

  • "The Creek Seafood Grill started out as Saffron over ten years ago. Saffron was good. Then, they changed the name to Pesce Fresco, and that was also good. Recently, the name changed to The Creek. Unfortunately, the name was not the only thing that changed. The warm decor is now a blend of bland colors with various chachkis and fake twigs scattered on the walls. There was no tablecloths or flowers on the table--just a small salt and pepper shaker. Overall, a cold vibe. The restaurant was nearly empty, yet service could have been more attentive. The food quality also has suffered. The salmon was a well done frozen portion (waiter said it would be medium). When I asked for it to be medium, the re-do portion was raw inside. I will not be back."

  • "We celebrated Father's Day dinner at The Creek. Coming in as a Pesce Fresco fan we tried not to make comparisons. The food we ordered was tasty and well prepared with unexpected ingredient pairing. We were surprised with a 50% of my husband's meal for Father's Day - nice touch! Downside: Our waiter struggled to attend to his tables. It seemed that the patrons that came in were more important than the ones requesting service. Frustrating."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We are regulars there because the food is so good - and everyone is so friendly! We especially love Friday nights when they have live music. When the weather is warm enough, the bar opens onto the patio which is really nice!"

  • "The food was fabulous and the service was awesome. A great off the beaten path place to take your wife or girlfriend. A great family place as well. The wait staff were kind and courteous."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Service was outstanding, but the food was not so much! Scallops and salads were very good, but that Dover Sole needs work. Mine was cold when I got it and many of the clams didn't open. The potatoes were under-done too. Not too keen on the reduced summer menu either!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Our service was excellent as was the seafood we had. We drove a long way from Longmont to use our living social coupon and were not disappointed at all."

  • "Have eaten at this restaurant many times over the years. The quality and service is worse with each visit. Recently ordered the salmon with red quinoa - tasted bitter and burned. One of the worst meals I've had in a long time. I will NEVER eat at this restaurant again. Save your money, go to Venice."

  • "The Creek always has fresh seafood. THe specials rotate by what the chef finds at the fish store that day. I had Hawaiian Moon fish for the first time and it was cooked perfectly. My wife had sockey salmon that was also excellent."

  • "It isn't huge and has very nice seating. I would describe the bar area as more of a waiting area than a destination for drinks but that would work if you just wanted an app or small plate with some wine. Very nice options on the menu with good assortment of apps. There are some salads but they are very small portions. Entree sizes are nice and are presented well. The seafood is fresh and cooked to perfection. Their dessert menu looked great but we didn't tray any but next time we'll save room for their grilled banana split with homemade ice cream. I would like to try their apps next trip too. Entrees run in the twenties but can creep to the low thirties as the special that night was (but worth it I have to add.) Find this place NOW!"

  • "The fish was excellent and cooked exactly correctly. I think their fish and selection of varieties - many are specials - is outstanding. The wine selection isvery resonable too."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Excellent food from the appetizers through to dessert (the calamari was the best I've had so far). The main course of Scallops served with crab ravioli was presented beautifully on the plate, and the scallops were cooked to perfection. Service was fantastic and knowledgeable, and the dessert (Creme' Brulee of the Day) was superb. All in all a great experience, and didn't have to break the bank to experience it - very reasonable prices for this level of quality and service."

  • "Salmon was perfect inside but scorched/burned on outside, which ruined the flavor of the entire dish, which could have been delicious."
