I have been here many times, and will continue to come back. On this last trip the sea bass was amazing, while the sides with it were average.

Always friendly, professional and prompt without overbearing. Max took good care of us and front desk greeted the 2 late arrivals expediously. We had a retirement party for my wife in mid 2014 and it was great as well. We are regulars there for special ocassions.

We have eaten here several times previously and always was satisfied. I was very disappointed on this occasion. Restaurant was full as usual. We had a group of 5 and we were seated promptly . Our wine and first course soups arrived promptly. Dinner did not come for over 45 minutes and it came directly after we flagged down our waiter to complain.

My wife ordered salmon, which she asked to be cooked completely through and it came medium to medium rare. She was offered to have it replaced, but after waiting 45 minutes for the first order, she refused having it replaced.

Disappointed in the quality of their fish (they are a fish restaurant!) and their inability to cook the fish to perfection. To be perfectly honest, those of us who had salmon, liked the salmon. My husband who ordered trout rejected it - it was old and way over cooked. When someone came about the trout, they said, "no one has complained about the trout all night" Really, this is what you say to a customer who spent $500+ on dinner that night!? Granted they prepared something else for him but he didn't eat it either. But the point is, why would you say that about no one else having complained?

So first let me say THANK YOU for the Veterans Day celebration. That was the purpose of my visit. I am grateful for the hospitality of this special program and find it hard to complain about something that was free. But since you contacted me, I will share my concerns.

I sat in the bar area at about 730. Was not crowded. I was not approached by wait staff for at least 10 minutes. The waitress was difficult to understand due to accent. I asked about the 'seasonal vegetables' that came with the meal. Told something about broccoli and green beans. I selected the green beans. When the food arrived by another individual, it was put on the table and she walked away. Upon completion of my meal is when I was next approached by my server. Asking if I would like a refill on my Coke. Yes since I had finished it with the first few bites of the meal. What she did not do is question why the vegetables that were on the plate were not touched...it was because they were not green beans.

Bottom line the service was less that good. Wrong vegetable selection brought to me. Never check upon during my meal for any issues or refills of my beverage.

My check was 3.28 for the beverage. I left a 10 bill in the folder.

Again, a free meal by the coopration but less than good service by the local staff.

Thank you M&S for your celebration of our nations veterans.

Respectfully
James

Service was fantastic, food was as good as always, Oysters were fantastic. My favorite place to celebrate a special occasion, and also to take a date. Have always recommended this resturant to others. Of all the places that have come on board with the salute to service, this is the place I look forward to all year long. Thank you for a wonderful meal.

This was our 25th wedding anniversary, but except for printing a greeting on our menus, the establishment did nothing special. With tax and a 20% tip, our bill of $86 seemed high for two low-end entrees, one low-end salad and two desserts, with no drinks.

Ambience was nice, but food quality was only good, not great. For the quality the price was way too high.

Your email chastising me for being a no show (we were not, but there was no hostess and our friend was already seated) did not give me the option of replying by email, and that is a big disadvantage to your service.

We were there during happy hour and ordered the Wednesday special during happy hour. It took over 30 minuets for the Claims & Shrimp to arrive and brought out after we flagged someone down to find out what was the problem . Our dinner was brought out 2 minuets later while we were having our wine & appetizer. This was very upsetting since this was a birthday dinner. The server said when she was going to present the bill that she had comped the wine since we had not received our appetizer when we should have. After returning with our receipt, she had only removed one glass of wine. We were both inconvenienced. Should have removed both our drinks.

The meal was very good except for one item. My wife had the flounder and she enjoyed it very much. I had the Tenderloin and Lobster Tail. The tail was very good ,but the steak was terrible. It was the toughest Tenderloin I have ever had . In fact, I did not finish. It was quite disappointing.

Wonderful restaurant to dine in, very upscale, great food,oysters can’t be beat. the steak was very tender and flavored nicely. However the server who was helping us was very rushed and obviously wanted us to get out of the way for the next reservation. With such an expensive restaurant service should be treating you like gold and it did not feel that way, regardless of that it’s still worth going and eating there we’ve gone there several times over the years and have enjoyed it.

I have always liked this chain but the Denver Tech Center location is horrible. I travel there often and will never return. Restaurant was empty service folks tried hard but were not well trained. The sword fish dish was poorly prepared the vegetables were over cooked and the fish not even close to fresh. Very disappointed. Facility is attractive and well maintained.

We always have a good meal here. The food is not great but it's good and reliable. If you're looking for top-notch seafood or steaks and the price tag that goes with it, you'd go elsewhere. If you're looking for an everyday meal that's above average (especially for a chain restaurant), this place is fine. Service always seems friendly and good and it's reasonably priced for the area.
