My bride insisted on fish last night. I reluctantly went along. I was very happy I did. By far the best dinner sans beef I have ever had. Service was excellent. We will be back.

This dish is the best I've had in a long, long time. The Mussels are lightly pan seared and served on a bed of coconut rice and mixed vegetables. To taste it is to believe.

We visited this restaurant on a recommendation from a friend and are glad we did. My husband had the special (Trigger fish), he said it was one of the best dishes he has ever had. I had the Trout...it was excellent. Pan seared with yukon potato puree with mushrooms and chestnuts. Great flavors. We also left room for dessert. The... More

Visited Fish last year on my birthday during restaurant week and it was so good we decided to go back this year. The restaurant continues to deliver excellent fish menus with an asian touch. The Bouillabaisse and Scallop dishes had wonderful sauces that were complex but not overpowering. This year we tried the cocktails and were so blown away by... More

Bravo on the seating to this restaurant! I get it, when a restaurant wants to see a good review they are hoping it refers to the food....I'll get there. Often the problem with smaller sized restaurants, they try too hard to pack in diners & therefore losing the fine dining effect by crowding tables together to the point one would... More

The parking was really tough. Dropped the girls off and ventured out looking for a parking spot. Oh Well. The dinner was perfect. I had Swordfish, My son had the tile... More

Restaurant Week Review: Well, we have survived the Dawn Wall of Restaurant Week, I think. I've gained two pounds but have learned where to go when our guests come to town. Last night we drove (yes, we had to get in the car and find a parking place) to Fish at 442 King Street. We liked that Fish made the... More

Visited Saturday night during restaurant week and it was obvious that it was very busy. Food was good (scallops and bouillabaisse) but service was really inconsistent throughout the night. Enjoyed that Fish (unlike other restaurants) don't create a separate/ smaller menu for Restaurant Week but instead allow diners to sample the regular menu.

We managed to book a table for New Years Eve and it was one of the best meals we've ever eaten. The staff were so incredibly friendly and professional. The decor was lovely. Discounted champagne was a real treat. But the food - wow! It sounded great on the menu, looked even better on the plate and tasted out of... More
