Based on our first experience dining at this restaurant, we were so looking forward to celebrating my husband’s birthday here. Our experience this time compared to the first time left much to be desired. The service was so bad. The server gave us the impression we were an inconvenience; the food runners were rude and got huffy when we asked for the plates to be cleared before desert came. It took 20 min after the check was dropped off before the server came to collect the money. Honestly, I will seriously have to rethink whether I’d go back a third time.

The outdoor patio is pleasant, and the food is good. The service is slow, but this deficit is a positive if one wants to sit and visit and time is not an issue. I have dined here for lunch twice. Each was a 2 hour affair.

The sushi was okay at best. We ordered a dish with scallops and one of the scallops had gone bad they did react well and offered additional scallops or a free dessert, did not offer to take the price off the plate. The lighting in the building is a little off-putting creates a lot of glare. Overall service was pretty good. For our experience and the food we got we felt the prices are quite high.

The dinning room was unkept floor was not clean. The atmosphere was too loud it felt more like a sports tavern.
My drink, a moscow mile, way too tart too much lime juice I requested a replacement. Our server was nice but dropped our food when she was carrying it out to our table we had to wait too long to eat. The food was average. The muscles were over cooked and had too much seasoning on them it overwhelmed the natural flavor. Not a good experience I do not recommend this establishment.

Once we located the entrance - not an easy feat - we found the entire experience delightful.
The only thing better than sushi is half-price sushi, so the happy-hour buy one get one half off deal made our day.
The fish and chips were a trip back to the UK and the dish called shrimp scampi was delicious, although it was more like a fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp than a scampi.
The desserts were delicious. The only issue was, if you are going to go to the trouble of making such wonderful desserts in-house, you should spend the extra 90-seconds to make real whipped cream to go with them. ReddiWhip is a poor substitute and detracts from the awesomeness of the rest of the plate.
Four adults, sushi for two, two entrees, two desserts, and drinks - at about $50 per person, including tax and a 20% tip for our fabulous waitress.

All of the food was excellent. This restaurant is a cut above any seafood place we have eaten at in Denver. I would say the steak is more average, but all the seafood appetisers and the Haliibut in particular was superb. 10/10 will frequent this restaurant. Also great service, easy parking.

The food was good if not a bit over "sauced". Wait staff we attentive and responsive. Biggest complaint was the noise level. With barely 25% occupancy it was SUPER LOUD.

Our overall experience was great! The one drawback was that the lights were very dim at our corner table- so much so that we needed to use the flashlights on our phones to read the menu. The food was great as was our server. We enjoyed the Happy hour offerings too!

Mac and Cheese Lobster was way too spicy, Waitress brought our bread at end of meal about 45 min late. Had to comp it. Glass pour of wine looked like a 3 oz pour for $10.0??? Really ? Venue was nice inside. Steak Ribeye was ok, nothing over the top.
Prime rib Blackened was great. Best on the table.

Wow tried something other than the "go to" the halibut wasn't a mistake, food was fantastic, awesome cocktails, a couple of trains made it hard to hear and fall temps meant a heavier coat...otherwise AMAZING!

Excellent service and experience on the back patio. The only downside (and it’s completely out their control) is the occasional commuter train that passes by, but a friend mentioned that it was quieter on the front patio with the trains. Great deal for lunch, too! I’ll definitely have to come back soon.
