Huge Disapointment – We're always looking for a new dining experience so we ate at the Bonefish Grill in Littleton on Crestline Ave. For starters, we ordered mussels and wine. The mussels were great. The wine glasses were filthy...unwashed. I was stunned. It was so obvious that they were dirty (food particles, fingerprints and even lip marks!) yet the server didn't even notice and seemed irritated when I asked for clean glasses. My grilled mahi-mahi was mediochre and my partners tuna was 2/3 great. I say this because one piece out of the three was so grissled that it was shameful. The sauces are uninspired...especially the one with what was supposed to pass for a dollop of wasabi in it. It looked wasabi green but was so mild and tasted like mayo with some mild wasabi flavoring. Ugh! On top of that it was a 45-minute wait for our meals (another couple that came in ten minutes after we did were getting up to leave when we were served). I give it one star because the mussles were great...but they should change the name from Bonefish Grill to Fishbone Swill.
Careful Bonefish... your Outback is showing! – Our first visit to Bonefish was in Westminster and we were both very impressed. (Bonefish is under the same restaurant ownership as Outback.) Bonefish is slightly more upscale so for the most part - expect a higher level of service. We had dinner at the bar and the service and food were fantastic. We found the concept seems to be uber-service. When eating at the bar they introduce themselves and it?s a great atmosphere for casual dining. Since then we've eaten at Bonefish five more times - all in our neighborhood at the DTC location on Belleview & Yosemite. We really like this restaurant! Some of the times we ate in the restaurant and sometimes in the bar. All experiences were met with really attentive service, good consistent food, and amazing wines. Sadly last Friday was an exception. We showed up after 8:30pm for a late dinner at the bar. We met one of the bartenders right away and it was the last we saw of him. There was a couple sitting next to us who introduced themselves as staff from another Bonefish. They knew the manager and some of the servers - so poof! we became invisible. Then behind the bar the staff started to close down the bar and doing liquor inventory and hour and a half before closing. No big deal other than the fact that then all of our service came to a screeching halt. When my husband suggested that we were still dining and would appreciate some attention. Like some more water, another drink and perhaps desert, our comment was met with a sigh and a shrug. The server looked around and said she would find our server and have them fill our water. Was a concept of great service just too good to be true? We hope not. We?ll be back and hope for the early days again.
HEAVEN on a plate! – We went to the Bonefish Grill in Westminster recently on a recommendation of a friend. I wasn't expecting much- a seafood chain restaurant in the Denver suburbs? I was cautious..... and BLOWN AWAY. It was the best meal I have had in Denver in 5 years- and we go out to eat at least 1-2 times a week. The service and ambience was superb, only overshadowed by the food. I had the Chilean Sea Bass with Lump Crab meat and it was cooked to perfection, as were all of our company's meals. The price was unbeatable for high quality seafood- the specials were only 25 dollars and included top fish and two sides. The wine list and drink menu was reasonably priced as well. My husband and I rarely venture out of the city, but now we'd be happy to make a trip several times a month for this place!
Best Seafood in Littleton!! – I would highly recommend this restaurant to family and friends! I have visited this restaurant over 10 times and I have only ever had a wonderful experience! The service is excellent and very attentive to our needs. The last time we were there we had a child who was allergic to seafood and the manager personally recommended several dishes that she would be safe to eat. The saucy shrimp is out of this world and if you order it with the steak tenderloin together it is an incredible feast! And if you can make it to a happy hour the drink specials are very reasonable. I am so glad that Littleton finally has a great seafood restaurant to go to!
Worst Service ever!!! – I have never been so disappointed ever! We went to enjoy a nice meal and eat good food. We thought it would be a nice place were we could count on the service and food to both be great. First of all we called and made reservations. When we got there we were told that we had to wait 30 minutes for our table. Well that was horrible. Then we finally got seated and our waitress took our drink order and I had just had some crown work done and asked for no ice. I still got ice but oh well whose perfect? Then when she took our order. She only asked some of us if we wanted a salad and not everyone and then people were disappointed when they didn't get a salad. Then the fun part was only some of the people got there salad and some didn't that had ordered one. The rest of the salads were delivered later. Then we got our meal. Well everyone liked theirs except for the birthday girl because she was allergic to scallops and asked the waitress for a sauce that didn't have scallops and she recommended the scampi sauce. Well it was nasty. Then we all were paying with different cards and we wrote down how much we wanted our cards charged which included the gratuity since it was charged on our bill and we told the waitress that. When she brought back the slips we were surprised to see that the tip had been added on again. We asked her about it and she said the system automatically does that since there was more than eight of us. I then went to get the manager and he said he would credit us back our extra tip and take off the meal that the birthday girl didn't like and he would be over in a minute. He then came back to our table and handed us a new bill that had our payments that we had made on it and said we wouldn't get charged the extra tip. However he did nothing about the meal that we didn't like. I am still sore about the fact that I had to tip on bad service. If you ask me it's a shady place and I would never recommend it even people that I don't like!
Best seafood, wine and matinis – It is so nice to have a great place to eat fresh fish and seafood in Denver. The restaurant has awesome mussels and crab cakes, I also loved their raspberry martini. I would rate this a 10 out of 10, the food and service were perfect. I don't normally eat fish but had the grouper picatta and it was really mild and tasted great. My husband had the filet which was also cooked perfectly, I would reccomend this to anyone that wants to enjoy a great restaurant.
