    I brought my best friend for her birthday. She had never been and it was a wonderful experience. The food was fantastic and we were able to sit outside by the water fountain. Our server was incredibly attentive and she brought a dessert to my friend as an added birthday bonus. I will definitely come back again.

    Ordered a Lobster Roll and got a tuna salad style lobster mashup on top of old bread for $30 while watching homeless people clean themselves in the fountain. Staff was great and super attentive, but keep your expectations low on the value for the food you get.

    We sat outside next to fountains and the sidewalk and it was very pleasant. We had a dry vodka martini and a glass of prosecco for cocktails, with One dozen oysters and the half shell to start, followed by grilled salmon and the lobster roll. Pro's: Superb food and drinks, good service-attentive and friendly. Patio seating in downtown Denver was very pleasant. Con's: Very Expensive $$$-$$$$, online reviews of the price as being $$ are way off the mark. Example: Oysters start at $$ each and go up to $4.75. Other similar Denver venues charge $3.

    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.

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 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.
