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.

Our server outside was such a good waitress! We went on Tuesday at 515 and sat in the heated tent. So warm my coat came off and I had a margarita! Everything was 10/10!

Burger was ok nothing to really write about. Octopus was good but tapenade was SO SALTY! I know the olives would bring that but not that much. Highlight was oysters.

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.

I wouldn't recommend Stoic and Genuine. The fish was very cold when it came out which is odd because it was overcooked, overly salted, and poorly executed.

The only highlight to my experience was that the oysters were great.

We had a great experience from this he time we arrived until we left. In the height of outdoor dining and limited seating the team went above and beyond to ensure our evening went well.

I dont know if this is a fair review since there are a lot of restrictions due to covid 19. For the time were in it was a pretty good experience. We came for the oysters and we were not disappointed. I cant speak as to what it would be like to dine inside and experience the ambiance since that’s not allowed anymore, but I was happy there was heaters outside and food was great.

What a great experience on the last day of in person dining in Denver (for a while, at least). The service we received from our server (jim?) was top notch, super attentive but read our pace well. The special from chep chris was out of this world. Amazing crab and cauliflower dip with salt and vinegar chips was to die for, and the fried "sunchokes" exposed me to an entire new root vegetable I now love and need to fry. The PEI mussels were amazing, couldn't get enough of the broth. We finished off with the fried cod in some sort of zesty lemon butter and it left us too satisfied to consider dessert. The cocktails we ordered were also of fine quality and obviously well made. Beth gruitch and her team of excellent staff maintained the excellence we've come to find from their group, and we look forward to what they've got in store as they transition to takeout for the time being.

Great place to grab an outdoor weekday lunch in the nice weather in this Covid Era! Try the Lobster Roll if you're craving some good comfort food, it's phenomenal! The Oysters here are spectacular too! Been here many times for lunch and dinner, can't go wrong if you're a foodie and you appreciate great seafood and thoughtful preparation.

I had given a special request of having Prosecco on the table before arrival but they waited to check our IDs which totally ruined the surprise. Our server was knowledgeable but not attentive. The food was incredible!

They were not prepared for outdoor dining comfort. Inadequate protection from weather. If you can’t provide that, do not offer outdoor seating.
Food was sub-par from past experience. Lobster on deviled eggs was old and VERY fishy. Substituted a “sesame seed bun” for Brioche which made the burger substandard

I enjoy going to Stoic & Genuine, especially during the afternoon Oyster/Happy Hour! The food is fantastic and the service is always great. The cast-iron cornbread with honey butter is ridiculously amazing and literally one of the best values anywhere. And it's my go to in Denver for a lobster roll. Great place!
