We were looking for some decent food after to many days with fast food on the road. After much reviewing on tripadvisor we decided to give Fish a try. The staff brought out a basket af breads and the most have thought the worst of their guest as 3 famished children jumped across the table and devoured the bread in... More

Excellent Presentation, service and taste. I had the Short ribs and my wife the Scallops. The best restaurant we ate at during our visit.

Fish was a delight, from the steam bun bread and sweet chili and soy dipping sauce brought to the table to dim sum dessert, it was a delectable journey. The service was good, and the ambiance was outstanding. It would be a great place for a group or also an intimate evening. I would highly recommend it!

I'm new to Charleston, and I enjoy visiting the restaurants recommended by my chef friends up north. I had a commitment at 7p.m. so I sat at the bar and ordered the clams. I can honestly say they were equal or better than the ones I've eaten in Cambados, Spain. I also tried 4 of the Dim Sum appetizers which... More

We have been in here for lunch and for drinks and for dinner several times. With so many restaurants in Charleston - we feel this one deserves repeat visits. Last time we went, we had the calamari - it was pretty good but not the best - but still pretty good. We had two drinking wine, 1 the Dark and... More

Stopped here for a light lunch. Almost everything on the menu is fish with an Asian flair; but there were some vegetarian and meat selections. My husband had the mussels and I had a heirloom tomato/fried mozzarella salad. The food was fresh and delicious. I would definitely go back and would love to try this restaurant for dinner.

Fish is a bit of a step away from the Lowcountry food we'd been getting our fill on. It's a restaurant that feels a little fancy and pub-style at the same time. Local ingredients that have a French approach with the caress of Asian flavours. A marriage of styles that felt like the perfect way to round off our Charleston... More

Great selection of fish, with beautiful presentations. The only drawback, not the fault of the restaurant, was that some super-loud people at an adjoining table spoiled an otherwise very enjoyable meal.

I hosted a dinner on the 2nd floor of fish for about 30 people. The staff was amazing and the food was impressive. I have eaten at fish several times, but this was my first private event. I will definitely use them again.
