I was a little upset honestly because in our open tables notes I put that we were fasting, for Ramadan, which means no food or water until 7:40 pm and that we would like to be seated on time because of that reason. Our reservation was at 7:30 and we arrived exactly on time... but our seat was still full. I don't even think anyone bothered to read the note, they offered us indoor seating which they had two seats at the bar.. right where they wash and dry the cups in front of us... which isn't actually bad but it felt a little awkward for us. Aside from that the food was delicious, would totally recommend asking for squeezed lemon on the salad... that's what felt missing. Everyone was super nice and the place was most ambient.

Service was fabulous. The food was very good. The deviled eggs were a little too salty but still tasty and the size of entree felt a little small for the price point. The oysters were fresh and deliciouw and the artic char sashimi was equally as amazing.

Food never disappoints, ambiance was a little too quiet but it is post-covid so that's understandable. Drinks are pricey and wish there was an alternative side to french fries for the lobster rolls, but other than that it's a great date spot would go back.

Weird lunch menu and we both struggled with what to order on a warm spring day. I wanted a large salad or something at least fresh and healthy, but there was nothing. $25+ for every lunch entree was not good. Even for fish and chips? Two very small pieces of fried fish and fries is $25?

No sandwich offered other than very unhealthy sounding lobster roll or double patty hamburger?

I can’t ever make S&G a place for a business lunch again.

We dropped in for lunch and sat outside on a beautiful spring day in Denver. We had the char and the cornbread and few cocktails. The char dish was killer, and the cornbread was very good (but it's just cornbread...LOL). The cocktails were great, but a little overpriced. Service was excellent and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back!

Everything was exceptional. The only negative was that with all the extra fees charged in this area we ended up paying a lot for what we actually received in food. We would however go back again. The seafood was very fresh.

Stoic is consistently very good. My date and I enjoyed raw oysters, citrus salad, Australian Curry, and Spanish Mackerel. All dishes were well prepared, beautifully presented, and delicious. This is my third visit in the last three months. The only thing inhibiting a fourth visit soon, is that the menu is fairly brief for mains.

Absolutely phenomenal, we traveled from Wisconsin to Denver to try the best in the area totally 9’restaurants, that we could fit in. Stoic and genuine was epic from entrance to departure. Food, service, plating, and execution were top notch.

They had just added the Belgian caviar to the raw bar and it was, indeed one of the best caviars in the world! Yes, it really is worth the price!

Then on to the lobster roll. I had the Connecticut Lobster Roll, a warm version of a lobster roll and it was outstanding. The bun was extremely light, just enough to carry and set off the lobster.

My partner had the more traditional, cold, Maine Lobster roll and it was perfectly done as well.

We finished with the Chocolate Cardamon cake and it was a delightfully different take on chocolate cake. It simply has to be tried.

One of our favorite places to eat. Maybe its Covid, but the food was marginal at best--not what i am used to here. My halibut was dry and rather tasteless for a curry. i got a glass of wine for dessert and it was obvious that they poured the last of the bottle into my glass as it was full of dregs and left a bad aftertaste, just like the lunch did. Very disappointing for the price.
We will be looking for a new favorite outdoor lunch venue. Its just hard to beat the plaza at Union Station

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.
