Fantastic server! He offered great suggestions. We enjoyed everything.

Thought the appetizers/happy hour (calamari, poke, oysters, fries, crab fried rice) was better than the entrees. Sea scallops and octopus...didn't care for the sauces.

As always and for many years Jax has been our go to place for great meals. From host to bartenders to servers this restaurant has never failed.

One waiter seemed incredibly happy to help; our main waiter just wanted his tip, spending maybe a total of 1 min at our table throughout the night. I spent over an hour looking at menus in town to find halibut; come to find out it was not being served this night because it was not in season (just change your website it takes 1 second)... I got the muscles --- great dish except one of the muscles had a little piece of shell or something in it because it definitely crunched much more than a muscle should..... Anyways we came in late at night and the waiter was busy which is understandable; but he offered no apology for being rushed... just went about his business. If I was at a cheeba hut I understand that people are living their lives and dont care about you; however when you are spending $10 on a drink and 25-45 on a meal I expect a little courtesy. I plan on returning; and hopefully I can change my review when I do; however, after this trip I was let down a bit.

We had a reservation, arrived early and were seated within 10 minutes and 20 minutes ahead of our reservation. The host was very alert, conscientious, and effective. Food was good, took some time on a couple of items, but nothing out of the ordinary.

I have two words: NEVER AGAIN. Scallops undercooked, my wife's snapper dish came complete with something unidentifiably rubber; the snapper was drown in seasoning hiding most of the fish's flavor. Totally not worth the cost. The Valentine's Day menu was totally out of their reach. Way too noisy for a romantic evening unless you don 't mind shouting. Very good oysters and service but that's about it. Good luck!

Second time my wife and myself have been. First time was superb, waiter was super friendly and a good laugh and the food was just fantastic. This time was for Valentine's Day, we were originally put off by the fixed menu but figured we'd give it a try. Absolutely delicious in every way. One of our favorite restaurants now in Denver, only been twice but both times we absolutely loved everything about it.

So happy that JAX is on Open Table now! This is a long time favorite and they never cease to amaze! When they called to confirm our reservation, I informed them that we would be bringing our toddler and they sat us next to the fish tank = VIP seating for a 2 year old. It was perfect for us to enjoy a family night out for Mardi Gras. Thank you JAX for being so accommodating. Oh, and our server was AMAZING as well - we call him Red (beard).

Our server (Russ) and another gal where amazing. My mom is not a huge spicy food fan, when they heard she taught it was to spicy for her they where going to remake the whole dish. She said they didn't have to do that so they then brought a wine that made the meal taste cooler and then they also gave us a wonderful dessert. So nice of them. I just love the staff here.

Everything from the start to the finish was impeccable. Had fresh oysters on the half shell and calamari for starters that were delicious. The Branzino entree was absolutely decadent. The toasted s’mores torte was small but packed full of flavor. Perfect end to the meal. We can’t wait to go back.

Our server Alex was fantastic. He made a point of making each person of 6 in our party feel special, especially our 18 month old grandson. (They toasted the birthday Mom together)! The food and wine was all wonderful. Thanks for a memorable evening!
