Food is always very good. They are starting to skimp on the portions making the value lower.

The service was good except rushed the food came out when we had just barely started our appetizer. I hate that. And we had ordered a bottle of wine which we then ended up finishing after our meal instead of leisure sipping with the apps then dinner. Husbands salmon was excellent cooked perfectly with rapini and beans under. My clams and spaghetti I did not enjoy. The clams were gritty and not the freshest. The sauce was spicy which I knew but the flavor just wasn’t there. I was very disappointed.

All in all may eat there again but also may try other seafood options s next time we visit Denver.

Jax is for a night out on the town... excellent cocktails, great wine list, creative food, city atmosphere, great mix of people and the energy you need right now. Get out of the house, have a date and tell each other how much you love each other by having a delicious night at Jax. Hey, they have oysters... who knows where the night will lead.

We were not asked about our occasion (which I had marked as anniversary). Last time we were and received complimentary champagne, nothing this time. They were out of two of the main entrees (salmon and tuna) and out of one of three caviar selections, which of course was the one I wanted.

The catfish, scallops and gumbo were great, the special of Dungeness crab was lackluster and came with nothing else, disappointing for the price.

This was a very special 10 year wedding anniversary.., took us back to the day he proposed. The food was just like we remember and very special touch with having the whole staff sign an anniversary card! Thanks for making it a great night of reconnection and celebration of the WHY we are together! Your staff and chef are amazing!

The seafood is very good, with a good assortment of types of oysters. Great value for money. A bit noisy, so not a business meeting or family type location. But the service is excellent. Our waiter, Dominic, as "top shelf" and a Keeper for the establishment.

Service was slow and lacking for a Saturday night when the restaurant wasn't even busy. We waited at the door for our host for over 10 minutes before anyone noticed we were standing there. The oysters were delicious but the entrees were lacking. One of us ordered a tuna steak that came out cold, drowning in sauce and was small. The two of us who ate dinner have both had great experiences at Jax in Boulder, but this experience at the LoDo location was lacking, unimpressive and left us disappointed. We won't be back.

Great place for seafood in Denver. Jax was recommended to us by a friend & we were not disappointed. We had a great server who made helpful suggestions & was very attentive. The food was quite good & we left very full. It was a fun restaurant with an upbeat atmosphere. We would happily recommend Jax to others & hope to return the next time we are in town.

The service was amazing from the the manager to our two waiters Jay and Steve. Extremely attentive even with a packed restaurant. Very well run restaurant.

The food was fresh and the crab cake was better than the ones on the east coast.
