The special ceviche appetizer with 3 large prawns was great but mysteriously wasn't on the regular menu even though it was featured on the cover of a local food magazine. Sushi rolls were over -powered by a thick layer of spicy sauces, making them gooey and unappealing. Broccolini au gratin had a tasteless tomato sauce--not au gratin. Wine flights comprised of Portuguese whites sounded interesting but none of the six we had was outstanding and several were below average. Decor was very simple--like eating in a warehouse or storeroom. Very pricey--we left feeling like we were taken advantage of by a tourist trap.

Fantastic seafood!!! Best in the Valley, bar none! Very small dining area, so be sure to have a reservation. They do whole fish, where they will do half of the fish cooked and the other half raw. Really amazing presentations. Huge sushi list, 3 kinds of edamame, etc..... You can't go wrong here if you enjoy fresh seafood. Wine list is also very accommodating as is the sommelier. Go and enjoy!!!!! Expensive, but worth it.

Unique venue with options for sushi, whole fish prepared 1-8 ways (depending on group size), or regular seafood options. One of the best for seafood lovers. Staff and Chefs extremely accommodating to allergies and food preferences. If you like to be "surprised", they will bring you their best suggestions for preparation which can be fun if you are adventurous.
Great location to Vilar, ice skating rink and overall to be "in" the village.
Very intimate: seats 40 tops, so reservations a must.

We had 630 reservation because we had show to see at 8. Assured we would be ok when we arrived at 620 entire table wasn't ready. 45 mins after our reservation we got our drink order. Food was expensive and we had 12 mins to finish meal

We sat at a table for two with a padded bench with pillows. Sorry to say, it smelled musty on that bench. Probably would have been better seated at a table away from the cloth padding.
Service was good. We really enjoyed the New England clam chowder (tasty, thin broth, very nice and New England....not floury as some are.) We chose to have salmon rather than the flown-in daily fresh fish so I don't know the cost for the whole fish. They recommend making half the fish cooked and the other half raw (as in sushi.) Since we didn't want it, I never asked the price.
EVERYTHING was a la carte including bread ($8). Wine was a very small pour. Sides for the fish, all individual. The salmon was cooked properly, however, my blackened fish was very bland.
Overall, we weren't impressed and wouldn't go back again.

I must say this is one of my favorite restaurants of all time. They have this down to a literal science and the food tastes AMAZING!! My only complaint is that we've been here at least 30 times since they've opened and NO ONE CAN REMEMBER US. We've brought probably over 100 people total with different friends and family when they are in town as this is a must eat. But when I have only been to another great sushi restaurant in Breck once and our server can remember where we sat the last time we were in. It doesn't speak well towards the staff. I like them, but it would seem that they couldn't care less about you. Don't get me wrong we go for the food, but it seems like they could work on this at least a little. Otherwise they are very friendly and I would still highly recommend this place as a MUST EAT!! ESPECIALLY FOR FOODIES!! Sit at the bar because the chefs are awesome. Greg is the best sushi chef I have ever come across hands down. He really loves his work and it shows. Great cocktails here as well. You really can't go wrong here, but be playful as some of their items may not be your average sushi rolls or apps, but they are the best part and best tasting items on the menu. If you're in the mood for a devilish desert after consuming your weight in sushi order the sweet potato fries with a BOWL of the mascarpone. Excellent finisher to a great night!

We arrived to find the restaurant half empty . Mike our waiter took our drink order and when we asked about specials said he'd send Tapee over to explain. Tapee arrived carrying a tray filled with "fresh" fish. He explained our options and when we baulked at his suggestions he very persuasively insisted that the chef would create a special preparation using the fish we selected. He would fillet half the fish and prepare it sashimi style and use another portion for a special roll. The remainder would be fried and prepared in a spicy preparation to our liking. We also, at his suggestion, ordered the calamari which he promised was crispy and lightly battered . We accepted his recommendations with the caveat that we wanted time to enjoy our drinks and a request not to rush the food. Despite his assurances moments later we were looking down at soggy calamari which looked like it just came out of a microwave. Unfortunately, it didn't get much better thereafter. The sashimi was bland (as we anticipated - Bronzino apparently doesn't lend itself to sashimi - you rarely see it on a sashimi menu). The roll showed no sign of having any Bronzino in it and was otherwise bland. Hooked , unfortunately is one of a few restaurants in the Vail valley specializing in fish and clearly missed the marked this evening leaving us to feel we'd been "hooked."

Food was amazing... Fresh seafood at its finest! Service was decent. Just not a very comfortable restaurant to sit in. We were sitting at a small table right as you walk in... There was a large booth/table directly next to us and at a higher level... Felt like we were looking at their feet and butts the whole time. But the FOOD is incredible!!!

Great plaice for fish, pardon the pun. Party of 4 for a family reunion. Enjoyed the evening the whole table had fillet fish and each had it cooked to their own preference. The waitress explained everything very well as this was our first experience. We spadix the have to wait too long for the meals to arrive and all had clean plates. It is great to find a fish restaurant in a land locked area. The dining experience is very casual but with a vested interested I it quality fish.
We would return again and try a different type of cooking method just for the fun of it. Yum!

Possibly the BEST seafood I have had in my life! We've even eaten at one of the top 10 seafood restaurants in the U.S. The suggestions for selections and the preparation was fantastic! We WILL visit there, again, before we leave the Beaver Creek, Colorado area!

All of our dishes were thoroughly delicious and thoughtfully prepared, these included a whole lobster, sweet-potato fries, my fish filet prepared Szechuan style, rice, and brussel sprouts, as well as a ceviche appetizer served with tortilla chips.
A few minor quibbles:
1) My fish arrived several minutes after my fish and my wife's lobster - and I really did want to have the rice with the fish!
2) There was an intermittantly screaming toddler in the restaurant throughout our dinner (I realize this is a challenging issue for restaurant staff.)
3) Are the TV's on the wall really necessary? Seems sort of down-market ambiance for a rather pricey restuarant.

We loved this place and our server, Ann, was extremely personable and shared her extensive knowledge of the menu and even gave us tips on the local area. They have cocktails made with local spirits, some local beers, and a decent wine list but the variety of choices on the menu whether you want seafood or meat are extensive and fun. We had a couple of Colorado Mules which are made with local vodka and a dollop of ginger foam. Magnificent! I would recommend picking a fresh whole fish, which they brought out three choices for us to choose from by the way, and have the chef prepare it Omikase style. We chose a Loup de Mer and in addition to sashimi style we had some with an out of this world ponzu sauce and then some nigiri style and two different sushi rolls that were dynamite! I have to say the best was the cooked part which he did partially Mediterranean style baked with fresh lemons, olive oil, and sea salt with the skin on and the texture was marvelous. We also had some sautéed with a lemon Beurre Blanc sauce that was very good as well. I will definitely come back here as we had a wonderful experience.
I never miss this restaurant when I am in Beaver Creek! Definitely try the whole fish and allow the chef to choose the preparations (do half raw and half cooked). The fish is fantastic and prepared in ways I would have never thought to order.

Food was incredible. Have to try the whole fish and let the chef be creative with the preparation. Half cooked and half raw, delicious and worth the price. Awesome dining experience. We are going back again tonight!

Really special-- enjoyed the whole fish two ways and the kids were happy to order sushi and fish and chips. Very small place so had to go a bit early to get in. It was worth it! Great service and delicious food. Highly recommend.
Wow, can I just say wow!
So on our last evening in Beaver Creek had a reservation for me, my wife and our two sons 10 and 12, to dine at Hooked. From the beginning to the end, the meal was just amazing.
We took the suggestion to pick out a fish and have it both partly cooked as well as partly prepared as sushi/sashimi and other appetizers (ceviche). My younger son who absolutely loves seafood rated it a 10, and my wife and I concurred. Our older son who is a bit more finicky gave it a high score as well, which is amazing since usually he is even a more picky eater.
Everything about the evening was an absolute delight. To say it, the fish we chose, let alone the preparation, was fantastic - the fish was called Shimaaji or striped horsemackerel. It was just delicious and the boys, my wife and I fought for every bite.
We live in NYC and have excellent restaurant choices, but for fish we would rate this equivalent to some of the top places we have had the opportunity to dine.
Well done Hooked, we can't wait to return not just for the skiing, but also to dine again at your wonderful establishment.
one of the best in the valley
Really good sushi, and also their whole fish preparations are amazing. Not cheap, but this kind of quality should not be. The decor is rustic, and it can be kind of loud, particularly at or near happy hour. If you want a quiet dinner, maybe go later. The food is fantastic though- we repeat this restaurant fairly often.
Not a great value
The salmon filet was wonderful and the mushroom side was yummy. Three scallops doesn't really make an entree although they were cooked very nicely. The broccoli gratin side wasn't great. The broccoli was tough and the gratin fell off. Bread pudding needed sauce as it was hard. Taste of it was good but it was hard to cut. Overall the meal was very pricey for what we got. Better values else where. Fun spot and probably would go back for the salmon but otherwise would not.
we were disappointed with our visit to Hooked...
Our last trip to Hooked, we were intrigued with their approach to ordering a whole fish, cooked or prepared several different ways. Although the selection is wide and the fish looks very fresh, the prices are not only 'unannounced' but exorbitant. It's a clever 'Hook' they have with a 'fish-specialist' displaying and suggesting the type and size a fish for your party, without mentioning what each little fishy costs! I mean, $50+/pound? ... seriously?
We were NOT informed that this was going to the price of our selected fish until our waiter came back around and asked if we knew that was what we ordered. Stop the presses - we cancelled and settled for some shrimp and appetizers- and walked out paying $120.
Wont be back unless it's for a couple of sushi rolls
The other point of contention - if you're a smaller table (2 ppl) you are seated in what feels like a 'walkway' - either right by the door or right by the bus-station. Seriously BAD seating!
