    Very fun, great place to eat during a visit to the Aquarium. Huge windows let you watch the fish swimming while you dine. Lots of non-seafood choices on the menu if you don't want to eat them while visiting them live! Tuna nachos were huge and tasty, clam chowder was just mediocre. We'd go back just for the ambiance!

    In the shadow of the company's headquarters, this STK is always on their toes. On this night, with all the Executive staff dining prior to a Nuggets game, it probably was more so but while that doesn't hurt, it probably would be the same were we 500 miles away. The entire staff is terrific and the food, the plating and the Steak Night menu would all still be the same. That the Nuggets won at the buzzer capped off a perfect night but it all started here at STK.

    This place has something for everyone, vegetarian, vegan, and otherwise. Every dish is made with care, cocktails are well crafted, and the desserts are very good. The staff were friendly and able to help us with separate billing for food and alcohol, and with splitting checks. This is a great place to go for a business dinner, guest in town, special occasion, or a hip dinner for two. Highly recommended.

    IT WAS AWESOME! We had a group of 6 of us, so we got to try lots of dishes, and there wasn’t a bad one in the bunch! The Korean tacos and the beef skewer were highlights for me. The waiter was great, but not on top the that drinks- we had to ask to order more and get refills on the waters. But she was very kind and knowledgeable, and that certainly didn’t take away from the amazing experience!
