    Stoic never disappoints! Octopus mortadella was a new and wonderful adventure. Fresh oysters and caviar with champagne potato chips were worth it. Lobster roll was not as tasty as previous visits— needs more tail meat and chervil, less Old Bay. Our server Kashad was on point! Friendly, knowledgeable and there when we needed attention but not overbearing. Great wine list.

    Our server was probably one of the best servers I’ve ever had!!! And I am also a server so I know how it is. I forgot his name but he was the closing server on 05/13/22. Food was absolutely phenomenal, we ordered the seafood tower the 95 dollar one, it was absolutely amazing and the value for the price was spectacular.

    Drinks were top notch. Appetizer were not coursed out - got our entrees half-way through our soup course. Nice outdoor seating. Oysters were excellent. Bisque was excellent. My entree had a great flavor but was 90% noodles and was quite thin on vegetables and scallops. Would go back, but only for drinks and oysters. The failure to properly course things out really bugged us for a $200+ meal.

    It was a pleasant evening in general - service was good and the appetisers (baked oysters, octopus, and devilled eggs) were excellent. Main courses (mussels , salmon) were also delicious. But the japchae and the Bok Choy were both swimming in dark soy sauce, making these dishes way overly salty, not to mention inauthentic. Fortunately, our salt-bombed palettes were salvaged by the delectable coconut ice cream and mango sorbet.

    We came for the whole haddock, and it was fantastic! The flesh was moist, tender, and fell off the bone into the lovely spicy sauce garnished with delicate rings of red chile.

    We ate at Stoic pre-pandemic and were impressed. It is a VERY good Seafood restaurant in land-locked Colorado, which is quite welcome by our family - who loves Seafood. The oysters, while quite pricey ($4-5 apiece) this is more or less the going rate in fine Seafood places in Denver. They were quite good. The variety of main dishes seem rather constrained at this visit. We split the waiter-recommended fried whole fish. It was cooked quite well, and was tasty. The fact that is comes with no side dish at all was not surprising for today's restaurant experience, but nonetheless a bit disappointing for longtime foodies. While a very good restaurant it still is not quite a spot-on as our local favorite, Jax Fish House. Both are fine dining experiences we would recommend, but with a clear preference of Jax over Stoic.

    The food is always good here and the menu seems to have become more diverse since the last time I dined. Of course that was over 6 months ago thanks to the pandemic, so not surprising. There are some nice vegetarian options in addition to the consistently fresh and delicious seafood offerings. We particularly enjoyed the whiskey butterscotch pudding we shared for dessert. It was simple and delicious. The little bit of chocolate cookie crumb mixed in gave a nice textural contrast and flavor pop.

    Easy to book a table, they were ready for us when we arrived. Great servers. Very good food and beverage choices. Our meal: raw oysters (delicious), seafood chowder, bok choy, a Connecticut-style lobster roll and a caviar duo (two varieties). Everything was excellent. Three glasses each of Muscadet and Cava Rose. Total bill with wine, about $260 -- a little pricey but worth it for a special occasion lunch.

    This had been one our favorite Denver restaurants. I'm thankful they survived Covid but the quality and variety of the menu and wine list has declined in my view. There were no recognizable wines on the menu. Most of the whites were either sweet or green/fruity from France and Spain, and didn't hold a candle to West Coast wines. A couple of the oysters tasty "off" and I crossed my fingers after I swallowed. The Conn lobster roll was excellent. The lamb was overcooked. Bussers starting taking glasses and plates before we were finished. That said, our server was friendly and knew the menu well to help guide our choices. Overall, it was not what we expected for a $200+ ticket for 2 of us. I hope Stoic and Genuine ups their game to the level it once was.

    They 3 oysters each from the west & east coasts. Lots of variety. Their version of deviled eggs with lobster pieces instead of mustarded egg yolks was a refreshing difference. The tempura squash donuts were great. I had a large piece of Lamb shank with plenty of Israeli couscous. The dessert, Chocolate Marquise made with dark chocolate, cold brew gelato and sour cherry jellies was a wonderful.end to a great meal. The only distraction was the server, Carl who was pushy asking for my drinks/food selections. But he took the hint after the 3rd rebuff.

    They must have been skimping on the lobster for the holiday weekend. I ordered the lobster roll; all I can say is it is a good thing my diet allows me to eat bread. Not worth the $40 price tag.

    Love the Thai Green Curry muscles & the oyster selection is phenomenal. Lamb & couscous was also a great choice, but couscous could have used a bit more spice... Duck wings were waaay too saucy and had an overwhelmingly bitter aftertaste. Our server was attentive but overall just mediocre. 4/5 would return for the muscles!
