Unpredictable

When it's good, it's great. Unfortunately, the experience is unpredictable. We used to go a couple of times a week when it was Coral Seafood, and the experience was always unpredictable. When the restaurant changed it's name to Fish, the experience was also unpredictable, but the menu became... read more

We decided on a Friday to try a new seafood restaurant and found this one an easy half hour drive away. Made a reservation for 6:45, arrived on time and were seated right away. Decor is contemporary and attractive with simple lighting at each table so you can read the menu and see your food! Waiter came right away with... More

I always feel that the formulaic approach to dining in the US reduces the overall experience of enjoying good food. The fish here was good - had a nice well executed piece of halibut and my guest had a delicious lobster ravioli. My side order of asparagus was forgotten about so I had to remind them. The continuous appearance different... More

Baked stuffed shrimp were very small, service ok, but value wasn't there. Will probably try again, but not for shrimp.

Elegant, classy decor, good food (note: kids menu doesn't even have any drink/desert options), friendly staff (Maddy is particularly nice) and yet my dinner is ruined. Their timing is completely off, while service is poor. Alcohol is extremely overpriced. It took me standing up and waving (several times!) in a 1/5 full restaurant for a waiter to take my order,...

We've been to fish a couple of times now and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves both time. One of our visits was with a group of 12 while the follow-up was simply my wife and I. Both occasions were above expectations. The group dinner happened rather spur of the moment on a Saturday night. They were very accommodating and the live music... More

My wife and I were very surprised with the dinner we enjoyed at the Fish Restaurant & Wine Bar. The overall vibe was great with a steady flow of customers and a full lounge area. Kelly, our wait person, was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Our drinks were served on time, water glasses kept full and table-check-ins appropriately timed during our... More

Not exactly Legal Seafoods but very competently done. Smaller portions, if thats a deal breaker, you may not be happy. My husband had to order a bowl of chowder after he had his dinner as he was still hungry, he said it was the best he's ever had. My salmon was excellent (but it was not wild salmon, a little...

6 for dinner, great modern looking restaurant with live music great while eating. Crab cakes and calamari for apps, small portions but very good. All dinners were great from chicken, lobster to the filet mignon!!! Slurp. Nice wine selection. Everything was very fresh. Would like better side dish's but all in all very good.

We went to Fish last night for "date night". We had the crab cakes, haddock, and shrimp. Everything was so delicious. At first, when the waitress put my large plate with a tiny bit of food in front of me, I thought I would be hungry after I ate it. But, I was pleasantly surprised that my meal was filling.... More
