This was his final night...they're closing. Would have been nice to let us know when we made the reservation instead of telling us that half the menu was gone when we got there for dinner.
Very delicious food and great service.
Absolutely wonderful place, great atmosphere, delicious seafood that's on point for New England in Denver.
Food was very good. Service a little slow for a Friday night.
Wonderful tastes during Happy Hour--a good way to decide what to pick for a larger meal another time. The oysters tasted like the sea--we only had one that was simply not good out of the two dozen we ate. The crab cake was just a taste; but I hope the regular sized crab will be more substantial. The blackberry margarita was very tasty and I recommend it. It was our first time there and we'll come back for sure! Thanks, folks, for a very good first-time experience!!!
Always excellent food and great service
Super friendly staff, owner came and greeted us personally. Great happy hour, oysters were delicious. Will definitely be back.
Thank you very much for visiting! Cant wait for your return!! Best, Mario
Mario’s was a wonderful experience. Mario cooks a lot of the food. The crabcakes are almost all crabmeat. The mushrooms are to die for. The green chili soup was outstanding. The wine is a very generous pour. All in all, don’t miss this place.
Joe, I really appreciate the visit, rating and review! Hope we see you again soon!! Best, Mario
Mario’s is our date night place. We love it
That is so awesome and we love it!! Best, Mario
We love this place! We went here on my boyfriend's birthday and took advantage of their amazing happy hour. The food was fantastic as always.
Thank you very much for visiting for your special occasion! I am delighted you enjoyed our happy hour offerings and food. Best, Mario
We had a reservation for 7:15pm and not seated until close to 8:00pm. Requested a booth in reservation and had to wait for a table to leave before we could be seated. Hard and uncomfortable tables to sit on while we waited. I ordered the Crab Louis salad which was mediocre and not at all what I expected. The crab tasted and looked like it came from a tin and not fresh. The owner did take off the shrimp cocktail that we ordered as a result of the long wait. Will be a while before we return.
Janet, Thank you very much for visiting. I am sorry we did not have a booth available for your reservation time. We do our best to accommodate seating requests but being a small neighborhood place with limited seating sometimes our requests conflict with one another. I do appreciate your patronage and feedback. Best, Mario
Always love coming to Mario's. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the food is terrific. They have a great Happy Hour as well. Highly recommend!
Kerry, It is always such a pleasure! We are so lucky to have regulars like you!! Best, Mario
This was our first time at Mario’s. We were greeted promptly and seated immediately. Our server was gracious and knowledgeable. Best of all, our food was great! The fish tacos were tasty. and the crab cakes were fresh and flavorful. We’re putting Mario’s on our restaurant rotation!
Thank you very much for visiting! I am so thrilled to be on your rotation!!
This restaurant is a hidden gem! The food was different and delicious! Specials were appreciated. The noise level was a little loud though. They have a tin ceiling. But we enjoyed our meal for sure!
Kim, Thank you very much for visiting! I a so glad you enjoyed your visit!! Best, Mario
Love their lobster rolls. They have a great happy hour.
Always fresh.great sevice
Our food was delicious! The special of the day was to die for and the crab cake was fresh and generous. The service was outstanding...
Great night out with friends or date night. We will be back!
Great meal! We sampled a good variety and shared.
The oysters were AMAZING. Great happy hour specials even in a Saturday evening.
Our third trip to Mario's Ocean Club and each time exceeds the previous. Friendly and courteous staff and charismatic owner. Food is spectacular and presentation phenomenal. The use of fresh tarragon is infused in the seafood delights. If you haven't tried it, you are missing out on a new Denver gem!
Great tacos, crab cake, tomato bisque, and raw oysters. Great conversation with Mario! I had not heard of the place before. I’ll definitely be back. As someone who grew up eating Maryland crab cakes, Mario’s crab cakes and remoulade sauce were very tasty.
Enjoyed dining at Mario's overall - they were out of iced tea which was a bummer for one of our guests as she is diabetic and was only served water out of the tiny glasses - would have been nice to have been offered a larger glass with ice and lemon.....the portions were pretty small with everything an add on - coleslaw and fries extra - lobster and crab rolls were very good as were the oysters and peel and eat shrimp.
Great happy hour menu- delicious lobster roll sliders. Love that happy hour runs til 7.
Very good happy hour and delicious food! 10/10 would recommend.
A big improvement from our previous experience! Our group had a weekday lunch together, we had a variety of choices, and all enjoyed their food.
Thank you so much. I am so glad you enjoyed yourselves on this visit! Best, Mario
Really great happy hour deals. Mark was a phenomenal, attentive waiter and overall a really good date night. Not a ton of fish options, but good sandwiches, oysters, appetizers, etc
Thank you for the date night visit and I am glad Mark took good care of you! Best, Mario
Great food. Good atmosphere. Cool location. Great staff.
Cobo, Thank you so much for the review and I am so glad you had a 5 star experience! Best, Mario
Clam chowder was an overly thick sauce, not a soup. The fried fish was heavily battered; the quality was no better than average frozen fish fillets. The “slaw” was a chopped lettuce salad. Overall not what we had hoped for, nor what we were charged for.
Joseph, I sincerely apologize for your experience. I'll pay closer attention to these items and make sure they are being prepared properly. They are some of our guest favorites and I wish I would have caught these before they were served to you. Sincerely, Mario
We had a great meal. The owner came over and talked to us which was fun. We have recommended this restaurant to our friends.
Our second time at Mario’s. Food, staff and location are all excellent.
Jeff, Thank you so much for the second visit and review. I really appreciate your patronage and look forward to future visits. Best, Mario
Excellent service!! And amazing food.
Ambera thank you very much, I really appreciate your visit and review! I look forward to seeing you again. Best, Mario
excellent lobster roll and the unique calamari appetizer as well. friendly and responsive service. Nice place - legit
BillO, Thank you s much for the visit and review. I'm glad you enjoyed the lobster roll and experience. Best, Mario
Great happy hour every day till 7! Fresh oysters & love the crab cake
JacalynP, Thank you for the visit and review. So glad you picked up on our neighborhood vibe and loved the crab cake. Wanted to let you know we also do Happy Hour ALL Night on Tuesdays!! Best, Mario
We dined on a Saturday night. It is a very small space so be sure to make a reservation. The clam chowder is very good. The shrimp scampi was disappointing, it had absolutely no garlic, the sauce just tasted like butter. It really cheapened the dish to use baby shrimp. The BBQ shrimp dish w/polenta cakes was pretty good, but the shrimp were really small. We would like to go back and try the lobster rolls. Happy hour looked like a good value!
Delightful dinner out in a cozy friendly setting! Dinner was delicious!
Jean, Thank you for the visit and 5 star review! I hope to see you again soon, Mario
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Mario is the best!
Patty, I am so glad you enjoyed your celebration and flattered you chose us for it!! Best, Mario
This was our first dinner at Mario's and we will be back. It was a good (but not great) experience. The service was outstanding. Our server - Hailey - was gracious and did an excellent job taking care of us. Mario stopped by the table and it is always a + when the owner takes a real pride in their restaurant. On the other hand... the oysters were seriously underwhelming. WAY too small for the price. In fact, we honestly have never seen oysters this small. Also, my wife had a martini that was simply terrible. Mario's uses some off-brand vodka and no way would we try that one again. The food was solid, but not outstanding. My wife had the trout special and I had the fish tacos. Again, the food was good, but honestly not worth the price. We have lived in Denver for 30+ years and Mario's is a little too pricey when compared to our other favorite places around town. We don't mind dropping $75 to $100 for dinner, but the value just isn't there at Mario's. We will be back to try the cheeseburgers and have a beer, but probably gonna hold-off on the swankier seafood or martinis next time around.
Timothy, I am so glad you will return and the service was up to par. Give us a try for our Tuesday all night happy hour!! Best, Mario
A wonderful seafood restaurant, not to be missed. Mario takes personal interest in his food and his customers. The seafood is very fresh. The crabcakes are almost all meat with no filling. The fish tacos are amazing. The happy hour is one of the best in Denver. Go!!
JoeG, Thank you for the kind words, 5 stars and visiting us. I am so glad you enjoyed the visit. Best, Mario
Great customer service
