I have probably eaten at the Flying Fish at least 100 times easily. Sometimes I get sushi...sometimes I get Italian. The staff is wonderful and parking is easy. Yes...even in "downtown" Elko there are sometimes parking issues. During the summer they have outdoor seating.

Based on reviews we read we were a little worried to try The Flying Fish but we were happily surprised. Service was good, even with some large graduation tables there at the same time. I had sushi in a Bento Box and it was well prepared and delicious. My boyfriend doesn't do sushi but instead went with pork and it... More

Who would have thought you could find great sushi in the middle of NV. Torre, our sushi chef, was so nice, knowledgeable and knew exactly what we wanted. The spicy scallop handroll he made was just the right amount of heat and really fresh. The Unagi long roll was so tasty. You won't be disappointed.

A wonderful establishment with a huge variety of excellent sushi and wonderful Italian dishes. (Not the usual combination, I know). It was soooo good we ate twice during one long weekend. The service was professional and friendly and they all hustled to serve the crowds. I recommend the bento box. gnocchi and vodka pappardelli.I ate breakfast here last year and... More

We had 3 meals at the Flying Fish this week. Breakfast had great coffee, but was a total mess. I ordered the veggie Benedict which is poached eggs on a corn cake, portabella and spinach. It came and was a sprinkle of spinach with poached eggs - no corn cake or portabella making it a significantly smaller dish. When I... More

Five us had dinner at The Flying Fish. It was a busy night, but we had reservations, so we weren't concerned. It took a while to get seated, but then we promptly got our drinks. And then we waited and waited. Finally the wait person took our order. Good. But then nothing happened for a long, long time. Our soup/salads... More

Went there first time we were seated right away up close to bar. Then we sat and sat and sat. Observed lots of waiters bsing and talking to customers without even looking our way. Watched the bartender drink a beer behind the bar. After at least 25 minutes a waiter asked if he should check on our order. I said... More

Not much food for the cost and the bar sits in an odd place. Bar could be set in a better area like in the back area that is kind of enclosed. Could have better lighting for a better atmosphere
