Hit one of the comfiest, coziest dining rooms in town for your Christmas Eve dinner. Hearth & Dram is offering a three-course prix fixe menu with options like prime rib, prime filet, duck or scallops for $55 from 5 to 9 p.m. Even better are the kitchen crew's dessert offerings: pistachio éclair, Black Forest cake, orange granita with candied fennel, and fig macarons.

Jax Fish House
650 South Colorado Boulevard
Jax Fish House knows its seafood, so it's no surprise that it's rolling out a family-style Feast of the Seven Fishes. Bring the little ones, too, because a special kids' feast is also on the menu. Reservations are required for the $60 candlelight dinner, so make sure you call ahead — and plan ahead, too, as this location is so far the only Jax outpost in Denver to offer the Christmas Eve tradition.
Mario's Ocean Club
560 South Broadway
The Broadway seafood house is doing what it does best on Christmas Eve: a Feast of the Seven Fishes. The menu promises traditional favorites (linguine and clams, fritto misto) as well as local touches like mussels with tortillas and housemade green chile and rainbow trout. Seven courses will run you $54, and a small à la carte menu will be available for those who can't quite commit to all seven fishes. Find the entire menu at mariosoceanclub.com
, then call to book your table.
Somebody (definitely not Santa) is watching you at Mister Tuna.
3033 Brighton Boulevard
You'd think a restaurant named after tuna would put on a seafood feast on Christmas Eve, but no; it's making a meal for the rest of us. Practice your Feats of Strength (you'll need to be tough in order to nab a parking spot) and brave Brighton Boulevard for Mister Tuna's Festivus dinner. The five-course meal will cost you $88, and it includes bites like a caramelized quince terrine and a fruits de mer cassoulet. Seatings start at 4 p.m. and reservations are a must; call to guarantee your seat at the table.
1441 Larimer Street
If your Christmas Eve traditions include a trip to take in twinkling lights, you definitely won't want to miss seeing Larimer Square, which is lit up prettier than a tree this time of year. You'll need sustenance, of course, so stop in for this $68 prix fixe menu starting at 4 p.m. Offerings include lobster with foie gras sabayon, rabbit porchetta with bacon and mole, and steak with soy-ginger jus. Reservations can be made by phone, and the full menu is up on TAG's website.
