“Nice people, average food”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Servers were very nice and accommodating, but service was slow. It wasn't their fault, as they seemed to be stretched very thin. This seems to be characteristic of Jax; I had the same impression at the Boulder Jax when they first opened several years ago. Food is OK, but nothing to write home about. The management has the odd policy of not opening the upstairs deck on Monday and Tuesday, even though there seemed to be plenty of traffic to support it. Too bad, because it's a decent location with good views. It's situated in a "town center" enclave, which means that the ground-level outdoor eating areas are essentially located in a big parking lot.

“Great fish restaurant”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Smart & upscale, relaxed atmosphere, good food well designed. A bit pricey 150 dollars for three for diner including one drink apiece. Cocktails are well made.

“Overpriced but good fresh fish with SMALL servings”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Ordered Australian Sea Bass for $30 and it was very fresh and good but nothing incredible and certainly not much food at all for the money (nothing comes with a salad or even bread, with salads averaging $9 and bread on the menu for $3). It was on a bed of 3-4 wild mushroom slices and a sliver of artichoke with lemon butter (and some other veggies) that was fairly straighforward. The fish was perfectly cooked and moist but a very small portion…maybe 3 ozs..so I was still hungry after eating the appetizer sized meal. Ordered Monkey Bread for dessert which was delivered barely warm, tough and very dry and the ice cream on top tasted slightly freezer burnt. The manager stopped to ask how everything was and when she saw I'd barely eaten the dessert, I explained it and she graciously took it off of my tab. Service average…very nice server but hardly seen. No real ambiance to speak of with slightly loudish music but was fairly busy for Monday night.

“The Big Red F rules in Glendale”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Jax in LoDo has always been a favorite and a few comments on this location after now having frequented Jax at CitySet are long overdue.

The superior customer service at Jax sets it apart from any other option in this area. Restauranteurs have written books on how to accomplish the experience you have at one of the BRF restaurants and these folks make what you read about a reality.

Special recognition to Jimmy at the bar for his hospitality and generous smiles every time. We'll be back again....and again....

“Fresh and Scrumptious!”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

We were in Denver for fun and ate here twice. The first time we had ceviche, salads, chowder, peel and eat shrimp and dessert. The portions were generous and we were stuffed. The seafood was very fresh and prepared well, the kind of preparation that let's the seafood shine. It was so good that we ate there two nights later. We highly recommend.

This restaurant has a young, fun vibe. The service was impeccable. And worth every penny we paid.
