An Intoxicating Ode to the Oysterette: In a Table Talk feature last month, 5280 Magazine encouraged Denver diners to immediately flock to Kevin Morrison's "ode to the oysterette" in RiNo. Praising the menu's balanced approach to land and sea, food editor Amanda Faison found a favorite dish in the fish charcuterie board. Further recommending a cold drink from the bar, Faison promises that diners will quickly find themselves "enveloped by Fish N Beer's intoxicating vibe." [5280 Magazine]

The Local Brew News: Zagat praises the restaurant's rotating beer and cocktail menus and its incorporation of Colorado beers. Fish N Beer dedicates approximately half of its constantly evolving beer menu to Colorado brews and bar manager Katie Kirwan's beer cocktails. Zagat suggests the Rum Gose Sour and Black Velvet, a stout and champagne cocktail. However, the restaurant only offers a limited selection of fish-friendly wines. [Zagat]

RiNo's Rising Star: The seafood spot's bicoastal shipments, "short, sweet, and approachable menu" and inviting yet modern décor - complete with a fireplace - charmed 303 Magazine. Morrison's "cozy take on an oysterette" combines RiNo's industrial edge and Colorado's rustic warmth for a distinctively Denver dining experience. [303 Magazine]

What's the "But?": Online reviewers on Yelp generally applaud the new seafood restaurant despite its landlocked state. Few found a issues with the flavor pairings and profiles of the dishes. One user was left perplexed after eating the mushroom soup and wanting after the blowfish tails, noting the breading "use a bit more umph." Despite the call for a few tweaks, most reviewers had no comments on the menu. One diner's remark summed up the community's experiences: : [n]o one complained and we ate/drank everything put in front of us." [Yelp]
