Mallory was an excellent server and made our meal special. Great selection of both well prepared seafood and other options. We had the medium seafood tower and cornbread, just the right amount for two. The birthday cake ice cream cones with confetti ice cream were cute and a nice way to cap off our dinner.

The four of us enjoyed our visit to Stoic & Genuine. We were greeted pleasantly, and seated right away. We sat on the banquette which looked ok, but not all that great comfort-wise. Our server was excellent, perfectly attentive without being around too much. The gin selection for a Martini was interesting, but lacked the old standbys like Bombay or Tanqueray... nice selection of craft gin if you like that sort of thing. The Granita "Sweater Weather" cocktail was delicious and interesting, it's made with shaved ice, so nice! We ordered the $95 seafood tower to begin with. Crab legs were tasty but light on portion. The oysters were excellent, and some nice sauces to go along. The shrimp were cooked just right, and seasoned well. The Hamachi sashimi was delicious but again, tiny portion.
We ordered more food, and were able to taste a lot of the menu, again, due to small portions. The only real complaint was pricy for the amount of food. Overall, we really enjoyed our evening there, compliments to everyone on the staff!

We needed to take a quick trip to Denver and stumbled across this gem while looking for a great lunch spot. It is pricey, but highly recommend it. The food was all outstanding, service very attentive, and great and unique setting at Union Station. It was a gorgeous fall day and we sat outside. Oysters were great, as was the burger and the seafood bisque. Loved the salmon carpaccio - could have eaten multiple plates. Loved it!

Just returned from Portugal where fresh seafood reigns, and S&G was every bit as fresh and delicious but even more creative. Outstanding hamachi sashimi starter and the best salmon entree I’ve ever had…perfectly cooked medium rare over a rustic & crispy grain base. Excellent service as well. I’ve been coming to S&G on nearly every trip to Denver since they opened and I will keep coming back. As a side bar, I went to their sister restaurant, The Rioja, on this visit as well and it was equally outstanding. Bravo to the ownership/management team.

Stoic and Genuine exceeded our expectations for our anniversary celebration. It was just quiet enough for easy conversation. The drinks were just right and we were treated with a champagne toast at the end of the elegant dinner. I was inspired by online photos to order the mussels in the green curry sauce. Wow! The oyster selection and presentation offered a good choice with a mignonette and classic cocktail sauce with horseradish and lemon. My husband had a delicious seafood bisque and a yummy salad with walnuts which we shared. We were well taken care of from our server to the manager who charged my phone during dinner so I would have access to my concert tickets after dinner. Thank you for our festive night! I've already recommended you to my foodie family. We all will be back!

Quiet time when we arrived so we were seated right away. Servers were attentive but not overly so, just right. We had a couple apps and entrees, overall food was pretty good. We both had red wine and it was served at room temperature, which on this day was a bit too warm (upper seventies). Overall a good spot and great value for the central location.

To whom it may concern, Please do not insult people’s intelligence by serving the 1/2 lobster as an appetizer! For $35, we expected a succulent and delicious serving, instead, we were given the SMALLEST 1/2 lobster we had ever seen as well as the discomfort of having to use our hands to crack part of it! I dislike having to use my hands AT A RESTAURANT of this caliber; therefore, we ate the 2” by 1” piece, which of course was the only part exposed! Finally, the waiter, offered to take the item off the bill but I guess he changed his mind. According to him, we ATE the lobster, maybe he couldn’t see very well or missed it like we did! Finally, stop giving out certificates or dumb discounts trying to rectify your mishandle of meals. I as a customer, don’t expect anything for free; however, I expect and demand quality!!! Awful experience with the lobster!!!

Dined out in the front patio - a lovely evening and a great spot to people-watch. Oysters were great - nice selection. Dined on small plates - all delicious. Loved the watermelon gazpacho. And the cornbread is a must-get. They were out of the burrata and peaches which we were looking forward to. Next time. Definitely recommend!

Haven't been to stoic & genuine in years. It used to be one of it favorites. Although this is just one negative experience the restaurant seemed like it went way down hill. The food selection seemed more like bar food with a fish slang (lobster roll, cheeseburger, haddock and fries, tempura broccoli Robb). The food was not good. It looked bad and tasted the same. The only exception was he lobster roll I ordered which was good but that's because it's lobster, butter, grilled bun. It's like grilled cheese, hard not to like.

As always, Stoic and Genuine was delightful and adventurous. Beginning with the freshest oysters in Denver, and continuing on to the rotating entree menu, everything was flawless. The service was personable and efficient, and we took advantage of a beautiful early fall night on the promenade. All-in-all, a perfect experience.
