Visited Flying Fish in October during our first visit to Carmel and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. First off, the service at Flying Fish was really good. Super prompt and welcoming. Started with the California Tower which was amazing. The rare pepper ahi was fantastic. $20 corkage fee is very reasonable. We definitely plan on visiting Flying... More

five of us had some of the best seafood dinners and appetizers ever! Well worth your time and money. The owners / hosts and their waiters are gracious and friendly. Such a wonderful experience!

This was one of the best meals my wife and I ever had. The preparation was exquisite and our meals were top shelf. The atmosphere was nice and cozy and the wait staff very attentive. Would go back in a heartbeat. What was also nice was we were able to get in without reservations even though the place was packed... More

Had a good meal, not great but good. Let me point out they do not serve mixed drinks, only wine and beer. Sea Bass was prepared excellent but the rock shrimp were about the size of a thumbtack. Waitress was not very attentive but the guy who took away your dishes was great. He needed to be a waiter.

I don't remember the decor but the steamed black bean halibut is 5 star! You open up the steamed pouch to the aroma of this combination and it's all about the taste! Wow.

Excellent food, great local wine and reasonably priced. This was by far the best meal we had in our holiday to California. I had the Halibut for main and it was divine. If you eat at one place in Carmel make sure it's the flying fish!

Saw on TripAdvisor that this was the second-highest rated restaurant in Carmel, so we made a reservation and had high expectations for our meal. The tables were uncomfortable and cramped and the restaurant was very warm. Service was up-and-down--we had at least 4 different people taking care of us, and this led to periods of time where no one was... More
