Everyone was friendly and attentive, and the food was delicious as always. The restaurant was slow at the time and the hostess seated us without asking if we had a reservation so we did receive an email from open table regarding a no show, but no biggie. Also loved the music :)

Oysters were great but spendy. Food was just basic and for the money not worth it. We sat at a small tables with couples on either side of us. Our waiter stood behind me to wait on us. I felt like it was not a nice private dining experience & very impersonable.

We celebrated our 40th anniversary there and were treated really well. The staff acknowledged the special date verbally and by comping desserts for us. The food was very good and the service attentive.

Our anniversary happened to fall on Mother's Day this year. So by the time we arrived for our dinner Sunday night, they were out of a few of the entrees. We gave our order and the server returned because one of our choices had just run out. But, the dishes we had were very tasty and our server was personable and attentive. I had mentioned it was an anniversary dinner when I made the Open Table reservation and we were given a free drink coupon for our next visit and a free dessert. Overall, it was a very nice evening!

I am at S&G at least once a week, if not more, for client meetings and for happy hours. The food seems to be inconsistent -sometimes outstanding, sometimes not. I've never managed to get salmon here cooked just like I like it. This time it was soggy, fatty, and in pieces. Not the best type of fish on top of a salad. Waiter didn't offer to take it off the check even though I had barely touched it.

We went for a quick dinner before Game 5 (Nuggets/Spurs). We dined off the Happy Hour menu and couldn't have been more pleased. The staff got us in and out just as we asked and could not have been more accommodating. I will definitely be back and recommending Stoic & Genuine to friends!

Stoic & Genuine has by far the best seafood in Denver! We truly enjoyed the Sunday 4-6pm happy hour with $4 wines & $2 oysters! The mussels were so plump and in a fabulous broth, with crusty bread for dipping 😋

For being in landlocked Denver, the seafood is phenomenal. My boyfriend and I frequently visit this restaurant and have yet to have a bad experience. The delicious food, the wonderful service, and it’s being located right in the heart of downtown Denver make it an ideal place for any special occasion or just a Friday night out!

The food was delicious and our server, Joel excellent! He was so friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and wine selection. Our dining experience was great!

On a side note, just a FYI, there is a kitchen living wage and a PIF tax on top of the sales tax added to the bill.

The atmosphere was amazing and the food to match. Would recommend giving a try if you are in the mood for seafood. My wife and I sat at the raw bar counter and had a great conversation with the chef cooking our food and serving oysters fresh shucked. Will be visiting again next time in Denver.

This is a place we go to frequently before or after events at the Pepsi Center. We ride in to Union Station for afternoon events and then walk down. The food is really good and they have some nice wines. I'm usually at a loss to decide what to eat. I notice they do have some items like burgers on the menu, but why - place is all about seafood and it is excellent.

Stoic & Geniune is located right at Union Station and has a beautiful facility! Their entrees combine unique flavors, making it a one-of-a-kind dining experience. My boyfriend was obsessed with their mocha trifle dessert & my salmon was incredible. Can't wait to dine there again!

Went there for the Octopus Mortadella. Worst dish ever...
Think "luncheon loaf" made with octopus. Perfectly round, thinly sliced, way too much salt.

Hello, Thanks so much for writing to us. I'm so sorry you didn't love the Octopus Mortadella. That is, by far, our most popular dish, so that is disappointing to hear. I hope that you will come back and try some of our other offerings.
