A very nice evening.

This was our 2nd time at Big Fish. The ambiance is casual and relaxed. Staff friendly and professional. Food extremely fresh and enjoyable. Go for the 2 for 1 (dozen) oysters on Mondays. We will return.

There are simply no words to truly express how amazing Big Fish truly is! Tasting, experiencing, enjoying first hand is the only way to go. Once again we were greeted by a lovely hostess who promptly seated us at a wonderfully situated table for 4 as requested when we booked our reservation. Several staff members were very quick to assist... More

We have eaten here dozens of times over the last several years and always found the quality of food and service to be outstanding. We were here over Christmas and were very disappointed. It was oyster night and they only had one selection from each the east and west coast, they overcooked the salmon entre and the spanish rice served... More

I'd read at lot of positive reviews for this restaurant so I was really looking forward to taking my wife there for dinner. We started with the seafood appetizer which was selection of smoked fish and oysters. It was a good size for two to share but was rather one dimensional in flavour - except for the smoked trout "pate"... More

My husband and I enjoyed a most incredibly delicious seafood lunch in an unpretentious setting that is Big Fish yesterday. Our waiter was very knowledgable and helpful, and his recommendations were spot on. We highly recommend this restaurant and will be back again. The Seafood chowder, steamed BC mussels, Trout burger, Shrimp and asparagus lasagna were what we ordered. If... More

We had one the best seafood dinners at the BIG FISH last night . It wasn't only the food that was outstanding, the service was exceptionally good, too: our waitress was friendly, attentive, and polite. Well done, Big Fish.

We arrived at opening, 1000 hours on Saturday, as we had heard it fills up quickly, although reservations are taken. We chose the special, a crab pie with salad and roasted potatoes, plus coffee. Service was attentive and we were not rushed even though we spent two hours visiting. Food was well prepared and presented. Dessert not required...you were full... More

Located on Edmonton Trail NE one could easily drive by this quaint unassuming little gem!! We had 7:15pm dinner reservations on Friday for a birthday celebration, and after driving around the city block twice we managed to get a parking spot right out front of the restaurant, although in the end we would be more than willing to walk several...

I had the pistachio crusted arctic char, and it was incredibly good. The crab cakes appetizer was good and our server was lovely. Good place to meet friends for drinks and dinner. Be prepared to pay quite a bit though.

It's not the smartest place in town but the welcome is warm and the food and wine excellent. Both the menu and wine list have been thought about and are far above average. The service is prompt and friendly and altogether it's a great place for a meal with friends.
