I was consistently impressed by eat of the dishes, despite some initial trepidation. The Arctic char, in particular, was a stand-out. Compliments to the chef! Wait staff was extremely solicitous. They deserve our tips in a big way.

Met friends for dinner. Ordered cocktails and wine with dinner along with a seafood tower to share. Food was good. Someone in our party has a gluten allergy so this was a great place where no one felt singled out. I’d go back.

Slow service but amazing food and drinks. Wish they had their own private bathroom as union station has gone down hill recently and had a horrible experience using the restrooms.

We dined outside in the heated tent and I can say it was by far the warmest and most socially distanced tent we’ve experienced. We felt very safe, and warm too!

We truly enjoyed the experience. The service was excellent and the ambiance was perfect. The food was okay but definitely overpriced for what you receive. I would pop in again, but probably only for drinks before our next stop.

We had an amazing double date night. The restaurant is as clear and felt very safe in the midst of this pandemic. Also, the server was friendly and attentive. Would recommend to friends.

We enjoyed the atmosphere probably the most. The Thai Green Chili Mussels were the edible highlight, and soooo good. The Grilled Octopus (entree) had unappetizingly bitter vegetables and the char on the octopus overtook any other flavor. The Dungeness Crab was great, but that's pretty simple.

The Rye Guy beverage is awesome, even for someone who doesn't like alcohol. We also ordered an orange cream soda but I'm pretty sure it was just pineapple juice.

For service, we were eventually greeted by a reluctant hostess after having been walked past several times by staff that didn't acknowledge we were there. For dinner, we were served by a pair of waiters and the trainer mansplained a lot of our dinner choices, so that wasn't pleasant, even when we spoke clearly and the trainee obviously heard our order as well. The trainee was great and seemed more down-to-earth.

Overall, I think our restaurant experience was lacking for the price tag attached, and I think much of that price comes simply from dining at a place in Union that procures seafood.

I just enjoyed all of it. The food was fantastic. My date and I split a bottle of wine which was a great. The wine is all higher end but very good. The ambiance was lucky but not loud at all and the service was great.

1) The quality of seafood and taste at Stoic and Genuine can't be beat. Their entrees are not only delightful, but also inventive. The seafood is the freshest I've had in Denver for sure!
2) The service is outstanding. We personally had James as our waiter and he was AMAZING. Drinks were always full, and everything came to the table at the perfect moment.

Everything is worth the price here - atmosphere, staff, AND of course the food. Can't recommend enough for a great evening.

I went there during COVID when there was only outdoor seating. Our waiter was great and they did a great job with the seating. The tent was surprisingly warm and the food was great!

The only thing that I think they should do is list their limited menu on their website. While the food was still amazing, I had looked at their menu and was craving food from their regular menu...

Overall, we were very underwhelmed. The food and drinks were very overpriced and the food was less than stellar. Compared to other Jennifer Jasinski restaurants, this just doesn’t make the grade. Maybe lunch or happy hour would be better, but the limited menu for dinner wasn’t terribly appetizing. We had the fish and chips and Connecticut lobster roll. Both items were just ok, nothing that we would come back for. The oysters were fresh and the cornbread was delicious. We will likely not be back, there are several other restaurants within walking distance that are far superior. Service was great, but the food just isn’t worth it.

Stoic and Genuine is one of my favorite restaurants to dine and relax at. They have worked hard to accomodate guests during Covid-19, and they have succeeded to deliver that exceptional service. Excellent food and drinks. There's never a bad time if you're a guest here.
