The California Stack - a stacked version of the California Roll, was awesome. Fresh crab, avocado and tender rice, only slivers of seaweed - great to share. The Halibut in Bean Sauce and Sea Bass in ginger sauce over a bed of mashed potatoes was to die for. We really didn't have room for the Fried Banana Split, don't miss... More

Hands down, my favorite seafood spot in Carmel. Great food and intimate ambience. I recommend the shabu-shabu- fresh veggies and raw seafood you cook to your liking in a boiling soup right at your table!

Wandered in for dinner amidst a drive from Santa Barbara to San Francisco, and lingered a long while over an outstanding meal. The menu is terrific - there are so many mouth-watering options with interesting preparations that it was seriously hard to choose - we tried the Halibut with Black Beans (really, really good - prepared in parchment and wonderfully...

We loved our meal and service at Flying Fish Grill. I love the cozy, friendly atmosphere. Our waiters, Tony & Jerry were friendly, helpful and so efficient. Our food was impeccable. I had the Ahi and the preparation was amazing. We will definitely return when in the Carmel area.

Good quality seafood with Asian overtones. Good service, setting is in basement, simple, with character. Not cheap though. I was disappointed with the choice of desserts though...ended up with a sundae which was unremarkable.

We are from South Louisiana where seafood is a way of life. We are always reluctant to try seafood anywhere else. This place can compete with the best seafood restaurants in Louisiana. Food and service were great. Will go back anytime in Carmel.

My wife and I enjoyed one of the best meals ever, in terms of food quality and taste, last week at the Flying Fish. It was highly recommended by locals, and it DID NOT disappoint. Attractive, cozy atmosphere, but it is the food that stands out. Incredible!! We spoke with the Owner; very personable and also the Master Chef. I... More

An exquisite seafood restaurant with influences of Japanese cuisine, located on the ground floor of Carmel Plaza. Friendly and helpful staff. Not too flashy, just cozy. I had the Sea bass, which was one of the best meals I ever had. The ingredients are fresh and of great quality. Don’t forget to make reservations.

Phenomenal food and most congenial staff. The ahi was incredible, as were the desserts. Get past the basement locale and go. You will love it.
