We were able to sit outside with the gas firelight and it was warm and toasty! Great service! The fish and chips are the best I've had yet. YUM!

Stoic & Genuine has worked hard to create a decent outdoor space that's warm enough to allow customers to enjoy their terrific food. Congratulations!

I dont know if this is a fair review since there are a lot of restrictions due to covid 19. For the time were in it was a pretty good experience. We came for the oysters and we were not disappointed. I cant speak as to what it would be like to dine inside and experience the ambiance since that’s not allowed anymore, but I was happy there was heaters outside and food was great.

What a great experience on the last day of in person dining in Denver (for a while, at least). The service we received from our server (jim?) was top notch, super attentive but read our pace well. The special from chep chris was out of this world. Amazing crab and cauliflower dip with salt and vinegar chips was to die for, and the fried "sunchokes" exposed me to an entire new root vegetable I now love and need to fry. The PEI mussels were amazing, couldn't get enough of the broth. We finished off with the fried cod in some sort of zesty lemon butter and it left us too satisfied to consider dessert. The cocktails we ordered were also of fine quality and obviously well made. Beth gruitch and her team of excellent staff maintained the excellence we've come to find from their group, and we look forward to what they've got in store as they transition to takeout for the time being.

Great job ensuring safety during Covid while still maintaining fantastic service. We were able to dine outside but the area was comfortably heated. The food is always wonderful and this is a great date night spot.

Great place to grab an outdoor weekday lunch in the nice weather in this Covid Era! Try the Lobster Roll if you're craving some good comfort food, it's phenomenal! The Oysters here are spectacular too! Been here many times for lunch and dinner, can't go wrong if you're a foodie and you appreciate great seafood and thoughtful preparation.

I had given a special request of having Prosecco on the table before arrival but they waited to check our IDs which totally ruined the surprise. Our server was knowledgeable but not attentive. The food was incredible!

They were not prepared for outdoor dining comfort. Inadequate protection from weather. If you can’t provide that, do not offer outdoor seating.
Food was sub-par from past experience. Lobster on deviled eggs was old and VERY fishy. Substituted a “sesame seed bun” for Brioche which made the burger substandard

When we arrived they seated us outside in a tent. The temp was at freezing. We asked for a table inside but told they had tables only for larger groups. We then left.

I enjoy going to Stoic & Genuine, especially during the afternoon Oyster/Happy Hour! The food is fantastic and the service is always great. The cast-iron cornbread with honey butter is ridiculously amazing and literally one of the best values anywhere. And it's my go to in Denver for a lobster roll. Great place!

We ordered the deviled eggs with lobster and celery.
We then ordered clam chowder and some cornbread.
We finished with lemon bars for dessert. The weather was perfect and there was lots of room between tables. The food was very good and the service was a little slow. It was a great lunch and I would recommend the outdoor seating as long as there is no wind and about 60 degrees.

Food and location were great. Service was slower than expected and wait staff was a little inattentive. However, not to a degree that would keep us from coming back. Would recommend.

This was absolutely one of the, if not the worst experiences I’ve had at Stoic and just in general for Denver dining. Drinks took 20 minutes to come out, our app took 20 minutes to arrive, our dinner took another 30 minutes and once we had dinner, half of it was missing. Lauren, our server, didn’t seem to have a sense of urgency. She recognized our food was wrong and took forever but didn’t really care. I was shocked she didn’t try to apologize or make it better. I expect a higher quality of service from here and am so disappointed in my experience.

Fire!!! Great tasting food and the service was beyond satisfactory. I was bit late for my birthday dinner reservation, however the manager on duty at the time (short haired woman) told me not to worry and got me seated right away. Even the waitress was extremely helpful and caring the entire time. I’d recommend!

We are only eating at restaurants that have outdoor seating. Stoic and Genuine have great outdoor space (though it can be somewhat noisy). The oysters are some of the freshest and tastiest I've found in the city. It is not a cheap date, but a delicious one.
