A Delightful Saturday Night Family Dinner

We went to Fish last Saturday night as a family and the entire experience exceeded our expectations. First, upon arriving, there was a good crowd, some open air seating and the atmosphere was upbeat and energetic without being overwhelming. Later a jazz band started playing and it was enjoyable... read more

The Fish Restaurant is not easy to find But take the extra time and you will be rewarded. Once you enter Fish, you know you it is special......the way the bar is laid out...... And the raised booths on the side. We found the waitstaff very warm and knowledgeable. My special tuna choice was excellent.... Cooked to order....,uniquely presented. The... More

I really enjoy Fish! I have had dinner in both the restaurant and bar area and enjoy the food and atmosphere. The seafood is always very fresh and tasty. Highly recommend.

We wanted to try it because it used to be Coral Seafood a favorite of ours. I t had your basic fried seafood, oysters and what not. Prices were certainly eye opening. I initially thought I was tearing up cause somebody maced me. But it was not. It was the $30 Fishermans platter. The $45 surf and turf. Yikes for... More

If you find yourself in or near Marlborough, Fish is a nice place to try. This is a high 3-star review. The menu is, as you would guess, seafood focused. There are non seafood options, however, including two vegetarian entrees. Many items were appealing. The cocktail menu was tempting, but we passed. We split the calamari appetizer with cherry peppers.... More

Restaurant had a nice menu of fish, and a nice atmosphere, with windows on two walls. Service was great, and there was a great selection. There were a couple of vegetarian options, too -- risotto and couscous. Everyone in our party of five enjoyed their meal.

Came for a special dinner out with good friends. Great cocktails . Starters were fantastic. Salad, chowder, cherry stones. Every one loved their entrees. Server was very attentive and informative. All in all a perfect night out.

My recent lunch at Fish was somewhat disappointing, especially after a much better experience about 3 months ago. The bread we were served was nearly stale. I had the wild boar ragu, it was OK, nothing spectacular. I hope this was an isolated experience, and not the sign of a downhill trend, as Fish is one of the few upscale/elegant... More

I've visited this restaurant for the second time and once again it was very good. I am absolutely impressed with their massive wine selection from wines across the globe. The seafood was well prepared and tasty. They have a great variety from fish, lobster, clams, different types of oyster to meat on their menu. Combine above with excellent service, then... More

Been here a couple of times and my first review. The 1st time I had the lobster although it was a pain to crack open the shell yourself , it was quite good. The 2nd time I had the salmon and it was actually not that good and how can anyone mess up salmon? This time, I ordered the steak... More
