Excellent raw bar coupled with innovative seafood starters and appetizers. While everything was fantastic, the whole fried Haddock was the star. Fantastic service only added to our enjoyment.

The food here is phenomenal! Unfortunately, extremely slow service really hurt our experience. We waited almost 30 minutes for our drinks to be delivered and 45 for our appetizer. Once we got the food it was outstanding! I highly recommend the curry mussels and the oysters.
Hopefully it was just a fluke night in service and not the norm.

The oysters were good and the oyster shuckers were good company - we sat at the oyster bar.

However, it all fell out after that...

Portions were small and prices were high. Despite requesting multiple olives, the martini, which was the smallest martini i have ever received anywhere, had only one olive. And even though i reminded the waiter, he only brought us a ramekin to put our one olive pit in.

The clam chowder was just awful. In dire need of salt and pepper, or any seasoning, it was almost entirely potato, which was not fully cooked. We counted three small pieces of clam. Very sad for a seafood joint.

We tried both of the lobster rolls, hot and cold. Mediocre at best in flavor, this also was in dire need of salt, there was barely any lobster in it - it was all roll. Very sad. And at $38 each, we will never order that again. At any market you can buy a 6 ounce lobster tail for under $10. And there was no more than 3 ounces in each roll. Are you feeling me on the mark up and rip off here?

It's sad. We've been here many times before, but will not be back after this.

This was our first visit to Stoic and Genuine since pre-pandemic and it was as good as we remembered! The raw bar is superb, cocktails are fun and tasty, and our entrees were all fantastic. On top of all that, our server was wonderful. He offered helpful suggestions about wine, was happy to answer questions about the menu, and was very fun and engaging. Now that dining out feels safe again we definitely will be coming back.

Amazing service and wonderful meals. The halibut and mushrooms were fantastic. Great selection of oysters and an upgrade on our champagne when they didn’t have the bottle we ordered....kept the same price too!

Food was sub-par. Largely out of items we tried to order. Some of our food never ended up at our table. Dropped $350 for out of town guests and very disappointed.

Restaurant was a very enjoyable dining experience. However, someone in our party ordered a specific scotch, and the bartender didn't have the scotch so a different scotch was substituted without explanation. The person that ordered the scotch was a connoisseur and told the server of his thoughts. The server was apologetic and offered a free drink ticket to that person for a future visit.

Made a reservation right before the closed. Called ahead and let them know I was on the way. Got there and received a warm greeting even though they were about to close. The server was super friendly and welcoming. Got 4 or 5 appetizers and everything was delicious. Server made some fresh brewed tea and was super attentive. Never felt rushed or unwelcome. The chef which was visible from the table was very friendly and even sent out a complementary desert. Hands down a great experience for a Denver newbie. Highly recommended.

I took my wife there for a Mother's Day dinner. She loves seafood and this is one of her favorite restaurants. The service was great, and my wife loved her seafood selection - oysters and scallops. I have seafood allergies and was happy to see that they had NY strip on the menu. Unfortunately, they were out of it at 8:45 p.m. Maybe they should put on their website that they frequently run out of steak and even oysters if reservations are past 8:00. I had to settle for a rather mediocre hamburger with fries that were overdone. And a salad that was on a plate the size of a teacup saucer.

Amazing food, service started really strong but we ended up waiting almost 20-min at the end of our meal to close our our tab. The food quality is amazing, but you definitely pay for it with entrees in the high $20's to $30's which is a bit rich for lunch.
