Wow, great food and friendly service

We had dinner for a large group at Fish during a weeknight and the food and service were excellent. The private dining area worked out well, a bit tight for our crowd but we were all comfortable.

Did not make a reservation so sat at a cafe table in front. Great service and the food was awesome. We had the red snapper and the scallops. We would definitely come back!!!

This restaurant was recommended by a fellow hotel guest. I should have looked closer at the menu as it is French/Asian. We thought it was promising as it was half price bottles of wine, night. However it appears they raised the prices as the $74 bottle (we paid $37) can be found online for $23 and tasted like a $6... More

Great seafood (the entire group of six agreed) but the service was very slow. Very slow. Hence the 4 stars.

I was able to eat at Fish two weeks in a row as I hosted 20 and then 15 clients for events. Both times we were upstairs and had the best service and food that I have ever had in the city! I can't wait to go back. Also loved the catering events that I went to in the American... More

Creative menu, especially the many shareable starters (calamari and mussels were memorable). Good service and decor. Great meal and setting

Hands down one of the best restaurants in Charleston. Not only is the food fresh and amazing but the staff is so welcoming, they cater to you needs. The Bar staff know how to make some amazing cocktails and love interacting with you. Scott,

We dined there before a Spoletto concert. Great location. There seemed to be room downstairs but we were seated up a steep staircase on the second floor. It had a draped cathedral ceiling, but and a bar (not in use) but otherwise not a pretty space. It was FREEZING up there. Asked them to turn down the a/c 3x and... More

4 of us went to Fish on King St. in Charleston. Excellent food, service was good, waitress answered all our questions. Has an Asian flair to the way the food is prepared. Not an Asian restaurant though. Recommend the calamari appetizer. Would definitely go again.

The guy deserves so much more recognition than some of his counterparts.. What an incredible fusion artist. Pairing flavors from Asia to France, exceptional stuff.
