We loved the seafood at Wewatta. This was our first time. We started with some oysters, followed with the clam chowder and the gazpacho, and both had cioppino for our entrees. Everything was delicious. Among the best seafood in Denver.

The food was really good and the atmosphere was cute but the service was so slow and our waiter kept forgetting things. Took over two hours for our meal and we had to rush to finish to get to an event.

First time there and it was very nice. The scallops were delicious and the presentation was very nice along with the service. The restaurant wasn't busy at all and since there was just 2 of us, we were put in a little booth way in the back. I should have said something, but I didn't. I would have preferred to be up by the windows so we could have enjoyed more of the ambiance and downtown activity. And it wasn't like we just walked in off the street. We had made a reservation. Aside from that, it was a relaxing atmosphere and the food was great. We would definitely eat there again. We chose Wewatta Point because of a concert at Pepsi Center. We just don't get downtown very often.

As usual, our visit to Wewatta Point was great! Food was fantastic, but the service was a little lacking this time around. Our usual server, and general manager as I understand it, was not on duty and the server who took care of us was fine, but forgot my father's wine and also forgot my appetizer. The wine was brought quickly upon a reminder, but I didn't pursue the appetizer and fortunately it wasn't on the bill either.

I worry about this place a little because there are never very people there when we visit. I hope it lasts in this very competitive Denver restaurant scene.

I live in the area and tried this restaurant for the first time. I found the outdoor patio relaxing and nice but the food quality, pricing and service beyond awful.

Service: I was waiting for a friend to arrive and the server took my menu for another table and never brought me a new menu. I had to actually get up and walk to the front entrance to obtain a new menu.
Quality: When we asked about the menu items the responses or descriptions weren't helpful and left me more confused then ever on what to order. We ordered the jonas crab and it was tough, extremely messy and a small pick fork wasn't provided nor did server come by so we could ask for one
Pricing: It was over $75 for a jonas crab appetizer, brussel sprouts and a glass of wine. So not worth the pricing, experience and I would say, save your money and take your business to one of the other many places in Denver.

The low Tide menu was perfect before a concert at Pepsi Center. The oysters were amazing and fresh. The sashimi was delicious. One of the wait staff did not show up for work that night, so our wait times for some things was especially long. I mentioned this to the manager and she was very gracious in her compensation for this. Will definitely go again.

Started off the meal with the Calamari steak strip appetizer, which was awesome.

Entrees were the lobster roll and salmon, both were outstanding.

This was my third or fourth trip to Wewatta Point and I am still baffled while more people don’t love this place. The food is solid. Delicious, presented well, healthy, flavorful, and decent portions. Definitely worth trying despite the typical light crowd.

If you are coming before 6pm on the week day make sure you get a happy hour menu. We weren't given one until I asked. We had appetizers and drinks and over all it was satisfactory. Check was wrong, don't know intentionally or not, just a warning...

I had the fish tacos which were the best I've had, and my husband had the fried shrimp and fries - not the healthiest meal, but fabulous. It was fairly quiet in the restaurant on a Saturday... we'll be back. Jason was a great waiter.

Cocktails were great. Beer and wine list left something to be desired. Seafood was fresh and well-executed but flavors underwhelming. Service was very good, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. This was an okay restaurant but nothing particularly inventive of exciting about this experience.

Party of 4: $300 w/tip. 6 glasses wine and 4 entrees.
1-1/2 pound lobster with shell so only had about 6-8 bites. Yellow fin tuna entree was flavorless. Barramundi and Scallops were good as well as calamari. Bananas foster and sorbet was great.
Have to pay for parking- $5- no restaurant validation.

What a fantastic restaurant! We arrived early to take advantage of happy hour pricing on cocktails and appetizers. The crispy rice spicy tuna and crab cake were both excellent. The cocktail was well balanced and perfectly mixed. While it was tempting to keep eating appetizers, we had the salmon and tuna entrees. Again, both were amazing. We didn't love the caper berries on the salmon dish, but that did not detract from how amazing it was at all. The coconut rice cakes served with the tuna are sweet and slightly nutty- almost dessert in themselves! Our waiter was attentive and friendly but not overbearing. We will definitely be back.

The restaurant was mostly empty on Saturday night, an odd occurrence in this town. More people need to discover this great seafood dining option in Denver. Everything we tried was well prepared and tasty. All the servers were very attentive. They were helpful when asked about menu options.
I had an after dinner drink that was too, too spicy for me. Our server gladly swapped the cocktail for one that was more to my liking.

This is the best seafood restaurant in Denver. We tried the halibut special and the scallops dish - both were excellent entrees. Their mussels appetizer was outstanding and even the coconut cake dessert was fabulous - and I find most desserts disappointing. Why this isn't on the top 10 list in Denver is beyond me. Great service, gorgeous restaurant, great outdoor patio and a great bar too.

While the service was excellent, the food left a bit to be desired. Not sure if we just ordered the wrong thing - but one of our apps was great, the other so-so. The meal, which i was really looking forward to had really undercooked rice so i just ate the veggies and fish and left the rice behind.

Was in Denver on Business. Wanted a good, simple seafood restaurant with solid wine list for dinner. Checked out the restaurant's pictures online and the food shots were quite persuasive. Also wanted to impress some business colleagues with my restaurant savvy. After a nice walk from a downtown hotel, we arrived to a cleanly decorated (unpretentious) restaurant with a most gracious and cordial staff.

SCORE! It was a beautiful evening so we chose an outdoor table. I noticed the Orin Swift Mannequin on the wine list right away. We ordered the Cast Iron Mussels and Spanish Octopus to start. After my friends finished their starters, I asked our wonderful host Chad for some most grilled bread to finish the broth for the mussels. simply divine.

My friends ordered the Barramundi while I had the grilled Branzino. The entrees were rightly portioned and exquisitely presented.

Another bottle of Orin Swift...

A delightful dessert. The Bread pudding, Bananas Foster followed by a 10 year tawny port. The best way to leave Denver... Contented.

Wewatta Point does not disappoint. Very friendly, honest and knowledgeable staff. Great food. Memorable times.
