Although our appetizer of calamari was a tad on the chewy side and under seasoned, our main courses of scallops and monk fish were superbly prepared and presented. Wine selection is most adequate and if purchasing by the bottle, even better. We spent our anniversary here and look forward to doing so again and again.

We dined on a Saturday night. We were sat next to the big windows and it was chilly. We have really enjoyed our dinners in the past however this time the server was a bit off-putting. I ask that my dish did not have any garlic or onion and I was sick the next day so I'm not sure my instructions were followed.

As always one of the best places to have seafood. Oysters to start off were great !! Lobster Deviled eggs and Avocado toast with crab cakes. 👍🏼 and my favorite Lobster roll even more tasty.

All in all and excellent time that we had !!

Had high hopes for this place, but unfortunately the food just wasn’t great. The service was excellent, but the food, wine list, cost and overall experience was just ok. The ambiance was nice, except the music seemed really odd for this kind of place. Overall, it was fine, but not worth the price, in my opinion.

Great place! One of my faves in Denver. The wine list is out of control expensive however!! The wines are so so and they charge 4-5 times what it is in the store! Typically should be 2.4-3 times max......S&G fixes that and it’s unbeatable.

The person who brought the Lobster Roll dropped the fries on my boyfriend’s back, onto his jacket. When we left, his jacket pockets were full of fries. It would have been nice of the restaurant to offer a credit for something.

The staff was excessively fussy about ID’s. We were a group of five people over thirty years of age and one of us didn’t have his ID with him but provided a scanned photo of it. They made a huge deal about how strict the law was but then they served us all drinks. The food was okay tasting.

We had to wait even tho we had rezzies, but the mngr comped a round of drinks! The food I thought was excellent! However VERY overpriced($38 for 3 scallops). The service was a little too "stoic" for me. Overall it was okay.

Excellent food experience. Outstanding service. Only thing we didn’t give a 5 is related to placement of tables, hard to have a private dining experience. Can hear and be heard by neighboring tables.

We had a good dinner and we’d go back. The food is good, though not gourmet or special. The dining room is fun but noisy and too warm. The service was good and enthusiastic but initially we were served the wrong order. On the east coast, with lots of fish restaurants this would be a family type restaurant; one of 100’s. It’s uniqueness is related to the dearth of fish restaurants in Denver.

The restaurant has a cool vibe being in Union Station, but the food is grossly overpriced and lacked flavor. I ordered the lobster roll for $28 and my wife ordered the scallops for $32. $28 for a butter-seared roll with a few ounces of lobster and a side of fries? 3 scallops on a bed of risotto for $32? I get it, it's an upscale seafood restaurant in the heart of landlocked Denver, but with Jax seafood in close quarters, your money is better spent elsewhere. Bartender was great, though!

My first time at Stoic & Genuine is one I'll definitely remember! The food was amazing, the drinks were refreshing and the atmosphere was perfect for an early dinner. Everyone was super nice and accommodating and service was extremely attentive even while the place was busy. I will highly recommend this restaurant to all my friends and family!

The salad was limp cabbage leaves and too much dressing. Lobster rolls not at all worth the money. Was very disappointing given the reviews that I read online. Oysters were great corn bread was great but that’s not enough to go back.

Limited menu which was very disappointing: two of their noteworthy main entrees were not available and only 3 portions of other fish selections were available for our Sunday evening dinner. Apparently due to a very busy Saturday night, their fish supply was depleted. Not a good sign for a restaurant of this caliber and pricing in the Crawford Hotel. Attentive and professional service, in spite of the menu constraints. Not likely to return.

I am a foodie from NY. I made a reservation at Stoic and Genuine for my husbands 50th birthday. I added to the "notes" section on Open Table that it was a special night. His birthday was never acknowledged. The food was eh, portions small, drinks were tiny, and service so-so. My husband's salmon was so fishy tasting, he could not even eat it. Thank goodness they removed it from the bill. No breadbasket offered to my table. It was very disappointing. For 175.00, my family of four could have eaten across the street at Mortons and gotten better fish at a steakhouse! Save your money and eat elsewhere downtown!

This place is great though as a fine dining is important and the approach I believe that coursing menu items is important and we order a bunch of small plates for our dinner and everything came out together which was a little much, our waiter could use more training in proper service.
