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.

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 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!

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.

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!!

Very nice meal. We had the clam chowder which was rich and creamy, although it could have been hotter. Lobster roll was tasty, but for the price thought there could have been more of it. Attentive service. Was nice to have Mario, the owner, stop by our table to inquire as to our meal.
