Second visit exceeds first

Previous lunch was pretty good but overcooked fish was a disappointment. This time, fish cooked perfectly (hubby had the flounder, I had the wreck fish which was fantastic!). Starters of dim sum and curry crab soup were a great start-the soup is very filling. Good service. Glad we came back.

Nice atmosphere, wine and very good service. Husband had trout and enjoyed it very much. I had the lobster tail, but ordered without the foie gras, that might have been why I didn't absolutely live it. It was good though. The Donuts and "coffee" for dessert was amazing and should definitely be shared. They were very nice and held our... More

Arriving at time, the company before us didn't really bother to leave and the waiters did not want to tell them they actually had spent their time. So we had to sit and wait for 1.5 hour before they finally moved. OK seafood, but ruined by the initial experience.

LOVE the curry crab soup, the calamari, and the little neck clams. Not a fan of the bacon fries. They remind me too much of large tater tots. The cocktail list is fun and imaginative. My "spa treatment" drink was just right! I definitely recommend Fish for something new and fresh in Charleston. Low country cuisine is so tired, but... More

I was at a special event that was catered by them. Everything was wonderful. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fresh, local ingredients and the staff were very pleasant.

This is a special restaurant with almost the most general name possible. The themes are Asian and French, but there is also local catch, produce, and beer. Some of my companions were disappointed by the starchy buns presented with a soy dipping sauce, although I though they were a nice touch. My "naked" fish of grilled stripped bass was excellent...
