Stoic & Genuine has by far the best seafood in Denver! We truly enjoyed the Sunday 4-6pm happy hour with $4 wines & $2 oysters! The mussels were so plump and in a fabulous broth, with crusty bread for dipping 😋

For being in landlocked Denver, the seafood is phenomenal. My boyfriend and I frequently visit this restaurant and have yet to have a bad experience. The delicious food, the wonderful service, and it’s being located right in the heart of downtown Denver make it an ideal place for any special occasion or just a Friday night out!

The food was delicious and our server, Joel excellent! He was so friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and wine selection. Our dining experience was great!

On a side note, just a FYI, there is a kitchen living wage and a PIF tax on top of the sales tax added to the bill.

The atmosphere was amazing and the food to match. Would recommend giving a try if you are in the mood for seafood. My wife and I sat at the raw bar counter and had a great conversation with the chef cooking our food and serving oysters fresh shucked. Will be visiting again next time in Denver.

This is a place we go to frequently before or after events at the Pepsi Center. We ride in to Union Station for afternoon events and then walk down. The food is really good and they have some nice wines. I'm usually at a loss to decide what to eat. I notice they do have some items like burgers on the menu, but why - place is all about seafood and it is excellent.

Stoic & Geniune is located right at Union Station and has a beautiful facility! Their entrees combine unique flavors, making it a one-of-a-kind dining experience. My boyfriend was obsessed with their mocha trifle dessert & my salmon was incredible. Can't wait to dine there again!

Went there for the Octopus Mortadella. Worst dish ever...
Think "luncheon loaf" made with octopus. Perfectly round, thinly sliced, way too much salt.

Hello, Thanks so much for writing to us. I'm so sorry you didn't love the Octopus Mortadella. That is, by far, our most popular dish, so that is disappointing to hear. I hope that you will come back and try some of our other offerings.

This was a bad deal for restaurant week as the food was not impressive at all. Major exceptions were the granita cocktails and the lobster bisque which was heavenly and one of the best things I have eaten. It’s the type of place where what you order matters a lot!

I was visiting Denver after moving away 2 & 1/2 years ago. This used to be a go too for special occasions. However first off I am dissapointed that I didn't recieve open table points for my reservation. Second off I was very dissapointed in the entree I ordered, the Pailla. It was in a some kind of a saffron gravy with no vegatables or rice. It was much too rich and I believe even made me ill to my stomach. The cocktails were great as well as our server. We were celebrating my son's 30th bday and he comped us a dessert. However for as expensive it was I don't see returning.

Absolutely love this restaurant. Everything was perfect. We went in for Valentines Day and it was an amazing experience from start to finish. We decided to share a bunch of dishes and oysters. If you have the chance to go I suggest you take it. It’s in the old Union Station, that in it self is as romantic and old Denver classy as it gets.

The last few times we were there the food was great so we always recommended to friends but this time we just weren’t real impressed with the menu. It’s very expensive for what you get and this time the food wasn’t that impressive for the cost. I think there are better places in Denver for the price
