If you want a great fish dinner and don’t want to go to Vail, you need to try HOOKED in Beaver Creek Village.
Appetizer to dessert. Always fresh and prepared for you the way you would like it. We picked one fish to be prepared three ways that would serve three people. Each different dish was excellent. Appetizer we ordered was the Crimpster. We highly recommend it. Joel was our waiter. He did a excellent job. We never wanted for anything. All beverage glasses were always full. Used dishes were quickly whisked away and replaced with another one for us to enjoy. We will be going back for both Lunch and Dinner.

Fantastic dining experience and one of the most unique I've had in a long time. The two of us split a whole fish weighing just under 2 lbs and every preparation was amazing. It was so much food I'm shocked we finished it all, but it was so good we had to. The chef prepared it FIVE different ways for us: sashimi, sushi roll, and in a beautiful flower shape on a sizzling hot sea salt block for the raw portion and on the bone flash fried with chimichurri and Szchewan for the cooked portion. If you like fish, this is a definite must go to restaurant.

We had a delightful 3 and 1/2 hour dinner . There were 8 of us so we got the full experience of getting several whole fish and having the chef prepare them in the best form for that particular fish. From sushi, sashimi, nagiri , to sautéed and grilled in various sauces. It was an outstanding culinary experience. The service was excellent, presentation excellent and fortunately we were there during the “bridge “ season so it was not crowded and hearing conversations was easy. I would highly recommend this restaurant and more fun in a larger group.

Haven’t visited in 5 years due to the price. Now that they had a special I figured I’d stop back in. I was so excited I thought about making two reservations. After the first dining I decided we won’t be back. Having a price special you’d figure they’d plan on being busy and having more staff. They were busy but did not plan for this. The waitress figured out we were locals and our order seemed to be expedited. Another local guy sat down after us and his food was prepared and made before others in the restaurant. Some tables were there long before us and still were not served after leaving. The special was great however the value was still not good. It felt as if the portions were smaller and that their cheaper price should have been the normal price. The food was delicious but still over priced.

We eat at Hooked monthly. The sushi chefs must have changed because our sushi was not rolled tightly and it fell apart. Our waiter also removed our salmon tartare appetizer before we had finished it. Extremely disappointed with one of our favorite restaurants in the valley.

Menu is a bit confusing - a lot of options and specials based on availability of seafood. So it's hard for the first timer to figure out how to construct a meal. They have a combination of sushi/sashimi, menu items, and market priced whole fish and seafood. Many of the preparations offer options for cooking styles and sauces. The wine list is nicely curated with many approachably priced fish friendly wines. Many of them are from lesser known wine areas.

We have been to Hooked a few times and I reviewed it in 2014, giving it 4 blobs but commenting about the service. They are still in the center of the village but with new expanded premises that allow them to have a bar as well as more seating. The table was ready per our reservation and we were served almost immediately with water and subsequently drinks. The server, who was very friendly throughout, explained that their speciality was a whole fish cooked in four preparations, two hot and two cold. We decided to give it a try and ordered some Edamame to nibble on. The edamame came and went as did our drinks and eventually at about the 50 minute mark the server apologized that the kitchen was rather backed up and could they serve the hot portion of the meal first. We were hungry so we agreed. In fact it all came out pretty much together at about the one hour 15 minute stage. The food was really tasty and thus I feel I have to give it four blobs overall but the service and organization left a lot to be desired. One last thing was that the server never mentioned the price of the fish and in fairness we did not ask, but at over $100 for a Loup de Mer we were pleased that it was so tasty. You can eat here for a lot less so don't be put off by the cost of our fish but if you are budget conscious be careful what you order.

They do not have table cloths at night. They would be a good addition for the price. The prices are high but the ambiance does not deliver the value.

The fish was a very unique experience. The raw preparations are truly amazing. Even though you can get innovative sashimi and sushi dishes in many places, the balance of the fish flavors with other creative spices and sauces is very special. we love this place. Only downside is that it is very cramped. The ambience is fitting to the vibe, even though some would say it is a bit basic given the price for a dinner.

Very loud. Had to sit in the aisle basically.. Table way too small for 4 people. Sushi fell apart immediately. Would not hold together long enough to get it to your mouth. Meanwhile another waiter was showing huge, whole fish to other tables. When did you decide what kind of fish you were going to eat based what it looks like when it’s swimming?? Do they bring in freshly killed cows and chickens too?🙄. Thought that was totally unnecessary.

The food is amazing, server was great. I put a credit card down to hold my reservation. They gave our table away, they said they called me...I left my phone home charging. Our pickup service made extra stops which made us late for our reservation (18 minutes). The hostesses were not friendly or helpful. We insisted on staying. We were seated at a table in a 1/2 hour.
