The Flying Fish is under relatively new ownership since I last patronized the place. I'd heard rumblings of an over-hall in the areas of service and food, so I decided to give them a shot. I wasn't disappointed. The first thing I noticed was that the staff was hustling. There wasn't an idle employee hand in the place - as... More

We live here in Elko for almost 5 mos now and we finally give this place a try. This place's parking is scarce. We were greeted by the hostess as soon as we get inside and seated promptly. It took a while for them to get out drink order. We ordered Seared Ahi as our appetizer and it was ok... More

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
