First, the sign that told us to go back to the patio to enter was sitting against the wall so couldn't tell if it was current. Problem is, my parents are elderly and very slow so it made a difference in how long it took us to get there. Secondly, given they were moving so slow, the girl at the... More

Drove 2 hours to eat at this restaurant. It was affordable and the food was fabulous. For a family of 5 with drinks included, we were able to eat in under $90.00. We had the calamari as an appetizer, which was extremely tasteful and cooked just perfect.For our entrees, my son in law and I both had the fish and... More

My husband and I had dinner at Flying Fish Grill based on good reviews in Trip Advisor, but our experience was mixed. As several people recommended, we had the crabby cheese bread--it was delicious but expensive. The Boston chowder tasted good but the fish tacos (one of us got salmon and the other mahi) were nothing special in either flavor... More

We stopped here after having been to the Hwy 1 Brewery (where they forgot to place our food order.....). Turned out to be a blessing in disguise because the food here is delicious. We shared 2 appetizers (the Ceviche and the Tuna Poke) and the Jeaux Special for our entree. Everything tasted really fresh, and the flavors/seasoning of everything was... More

We arrived in Half Moon Bay around 8:00 pm during a trip up the coast. We had picked out Flying Fish in advance based on the great reviews here. The food was excellent. I had the salmon tostada and it was fresh and delicious! We shared a slice of pie for dessert. Our server, Elizabeth was very friendly and provided... More

Stopped here for an early dinner one evening. There were only two or three other tables occupied, while the bar area was quite busy. Service was a little sketchy as we had to ask our server several times for water, and I watched my cioppino make a tour of the restaurant-bar area before it eventually made it to our table.... More

We stopped here for lunch, the clam chowder was great! Everyone's meal was very good, the calamari platter was excellent, light batter and very tender. Lots of variety with seafood, sandwiches and salads. Good prices, great value for a seafood restaurant. We will be back.

Stopped for late lunch/early dinner. Not crowded so the service was good. Wife had a large salad with raspberry dressing that was very good. I had a tilapia that was excellent. Servings were quite large. We did have to ask for bread. Unfortunately we were passing through the area. We would have come back if we were remaining in the... More

Driving up the coast we stopped here on the later side for supper one evening. The seared shrimp with cilantro sauce was very good, but the dish could have used a bit more of the sauce. My partner's Asian Salmon was excellent. Dessert was key lime pie (divine) and pineapple upside down cake (large portion but tasty indeed!). Service was... More
