FISH...was pretty good but I'd have to say it's a work in process with a lot of upside potential.. Nice variety, outside pizza bar, formal dining room and upstairs pub...(the full mere is avaliable to all areas). Little things like being out of the wine the server suggested, hic-ups slowing down meals from the kitchen, took the edge off an... More

Jamestown FiSH is fantastic. We made reservations based solely on an ad in an issue of Edible Rhody magazine. We are so glad we did. You will find the restaurant clean, crisp, and complete with beautiful detail throughout. From the outside lounge with 'pizza' oven, to the stunning upstairs bar, to the main dining room decor. Service was perfect. Once... More

To begin with: Our waitress wore a "very" dirty black apron plus she was bulging out of her white shirt which was stained. She "clomped" away from our table so loudly one could have heard her clear across the sound to Block Island! Each time we said "thank you" we were dealt with silence, no "your welcome", "my pleasure" or... More

We have a summer home in Newport, and have been to Fish any number of times, and truly enjoyed our meals and recommended the restaurant to friends.

We have a house across the bay in Newport so we have plenty of fine restaurants to choose from. It was great to go over the bridge to Jamestown and dine indoors at Jamestown Fish. Great atmosphere, in a bright and attractive setting with very good service. Our fish was great. May have been a fairly limited menu but everything... More

Enjoyed a really great dinner here on our stay in Jamestown. Extremely fresh seafood in a nice atmosphere-can't go wrong in choosing this restaurant.

While the atmosphere was very nice, I found the menu choices limited and overpriced. It took almost an hour between the time we ordered dinner and the time it was served, although the restaurant was not crowded.

First and foremost, you better want to eat seafood. There was only one meat dish ($45 veal) and one veggie option. Stripper was quite good, but others were somewhat disappointed. The swordfish slice was very ragged-looking and not very attractive. We discovered the furry underside of the table. Our server said it was to deaden the noise; good thing since... More

Our second visit in four days was on a Monday; inside diningrooms were closed, patio only. Arrived 5:30 and by the time we left, diners were waiting outside and at the bar area, so quite busy. Appetizer of Spring Soup - brilliant almost unreal color, puree of interesting combination of vegetables, extremely fresh and flavorful. I would order it again... More
