Nice upscale City feel far from the city.

My wife and I enjoyed a good meal here on Saturday night. The service was attentive and accommodating. The food was good and fresh and flavorful. Really, no complaints. The room is nicely lit and not overcrowded or noisy.

Everything is done right but the real deal are the dollar oysters served just right. Terrific atmosphere and knowledgable servers. Miles from the seashore but as large a variety and as fine preparation as any place in Boston or any of the restaurants by the sea.

We were invited by our friends and were pleasantly surprised by this upscale suburban restaurant. Nice setting even with live music. Too bad patrons were so loud that you could hear not music nor conversation. Service was excellent and friendly. And food.... we did not order fish, probably not a good idea at "Fish" restaurant. Every meat and pasta dish... More

I was very impressed with my meal here. It was a beautiful night out. The service was terrific and the atmosphere is calm and lovely. We had not been to this spot in marlborough since it was Coral Seafood-years ago! This is so much better! I was wowed! Servings are not huge but not stingy either. Meals are plated nicely... More

Went to Fish on a warm Sunday evening in the summer. Restaurant is located downtown on a busy corner. There is ample parking in a parking lot shared with other businesses. The decor is pleasant and there is a bar area with windows that open to provide in effect out door eating. (Our visit was on a day that reached... More

This restaurant serves great, fresh seafood but they lose major points by how long it takes to serve your food. I have dined here alone and with friends and I always have the same complaint: they take forever! I was there last Sunday night and from the time we put our order in (7 pm) till the time we actually... More

This is a good place and so far out from Boston center it was a good experience. The place is packed with people which was your first hint that it was a good place. I had a stuffed lobster, it was nice. But the giant clams were the highlight.

So many reviewers have praised this restaurant it is hard to say anything new. We agree with all of them. Beautiful decor, excellent service, but Number One is the food - outstanding! A couple of our favorites: the octopus appetizer (we sometimes double it for a main course) and the coriander-crusted ahi tuna. Other treats: truly Giant shrimp (not cheap... More

This restaurant delivers everything it promises. The service, the quality of food, the atmosphere was beyond compare for New England. You feel like you just stepped into a New York popular bistro! Wonderful experience
