Sunday, April 1, 2018
Just a date out with my mother , having a lil bit of happy time with her while enjoying some seafood we like, I had a beer and it was pretty good. Not really a drinker myself but will have one now and than. Little bit costly for my wallet but what the heck it was for MOM , thx the service was outstanding, Fred H.
Made the reservation with minimal notice and the staff was on point. Our table was ready when we got there with a special anniversary greeting and we were very well taken care of! As always the food and beverages were great as well!
Always love coming here with friends or family. Best margaritas in town.
The food was not good. I have been here many times and this was just awful. My Wellington was burnt and the sauce was cold, and the veggies we're under cooked.
If I could find better words to describe our experience other than ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC, I would use them. Jax is acceptional and beyond, and the staff was so helpful in making my boyfriend’s birthday dinner THE BEST we’ve ever shared. 1000 stars for Jax.
Great service, ambiance and good food. We had the calamari which was very good, lightly breaded, and both sauces were good. Also had a couple of the charbroiled oysters since we are not into raw...and the Cajun style special was awesome. My wife did the cioppino special and she loved it. I did the scallops which were good but left me wondering if I should've tried something else. All in all, great experience.
Very fresh food and excellent bar service
Highly recommend this place for any seafood lovers! Great ambience and food!
We went to Jax Downtown for Denver Restaurant Week. While we like Jax, this was basically a rip-off for with the special menu offered. My wife ordered the Wedge salad, which was pretty good. A big hunk of iceberg lettuce, but lacking in the dressing dept. (We did get more.) However, her chosen entrée was the "made to order" clam chowder. Didn't seem particularly special, and my, what a small serving for an entrée. The final piece of the menu, the ordered Key Lime pie, seemed more like a 1/2 order of an actual dessert. Overall, a very dissapointing selection. However, the service was good and attentive.
We will probably go back at some point, but really Jax, the skimpiness of the servings was very disappointing, and did not leave us with a good impression of the restaurant.
Being from the East Coast.... I am always skeptical of seafood in Colorado. But I must say that these guys KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING!
Always a great time at Jax! I'm a little hesitant about seafood in a landlocked state, but Jax always has a fresh, seasonal selection. The oysters are always fresh and amazing. Our server Justin took great care of us, and made our dining experience memorable!
We went for Denver Restaurant Week and can't wait to go again. It is on the pricer side but definitely worth it. We loved being able to draw on the table "cloth". The food was excellent; the flavors were fantastic and it was cooked perfectly. The cocktails were delicious. The service was great. Our server was attentive but not constantly there, just the perfect amount. He was able to offer suggestions which we love and he was so great.
We went to Denver Restaurant to Jax in Lodo & thought it was amazing. There were so many options which is unusual for restaurant week. Everything was delicious. Our waiter was so fun & even though we arrived a few minutes after 6 pm he showed us the happy hour menu. Especially loved the tuna poke & the charred octopus. Also the key lime pie was wonderful.
Lobster was over cooked and felt like we were eating Elmer’s glue. All crab was over cooked and mushy. We were shorted 6 oysters. Overall not a great dinner. We went based on many amazing recommendations. Could have just been a bad night but we won’t be returning.
Very nice but too many hot spicy options and they were out of some fish not a lot of options for those who didn’t like oysters mussels or spicy things
Love love love this place. Best service I have ever had. Food was amazing, especially the Branzino entree. We thought it was the best crab cake we've ever had! Sounds so simple but the fresh chocolate chip cookies were the perfect way to end. Get the a la mode! Can't wait to go back.
Great service for such a busy, bustling place. The food and drinks are delicious and fresh. Loved the ahi tuna poke appetizer, fresh fish choice of the day and the dessert.
Very good overall as always, first time we had snow crab legs as part or combo app, not impressed with the crab, possibly because we grew up on the west coast and were spoiled with fresh Dungeness crab. Oysters, shrimp and clam chowder were awesome.
Fantastic server! He offered great suggestions. We enjoyed everything.
Been there multiple times. Always excellent food and service. A bit pricy but still worth it. Only issue was sitting by the windows was a bit too chilly due to cold outdoor temperatures.
A warm spot on a cold night. Jax has a great happy hour, service was excellent, and holy cow, the food is good. +1: I arrived half an hour early for our reservation, because my dinner date had a late class and I just couldn't be at work any more, and they were nice as could be. Leave room for key lime pie.
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.
Absolutely Awesome and Alec our waiter was phenomenal.!
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).
Jax was amazing, the food, the ambiance, the service...everything!!
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.
Amazing as always. Love the updated menu and our server “big Al” is the best!!!
The oysters were delicious! Definitely check this place out for fresh seafood.
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!
Can’t remember our waiter’s name but he was really awesome! Foods always good here.
Amazing! This was the perfect date night for any seafood lover!
Great food, great craft cocktails, lively vibe. Jax is a great place for a Friday night date!
Amazing staffing providing amazing attention to detail in their service and delivering amazing food and drink.
Jax’s never disappoints! They have the best servers and only serve you their best every time. Great vibe, friendly service, becoming a tradition for us whenever me make it to Denver! Their seafood is the best!
