Good yet a bit pricy

We had an enjoyable meal at Fish. The prices are on the high end and the portions are on the small end. The chef is obviously very skilled as most of the food was tasty and the menu innovative. I will say that perhaps the chef was trying a bit too hard to be innovative or cutting edge because... read more

My husband and I came here for dinner and we couldn't brag enough about our service from the staff! They were very friendly, personable and patient. The half off bottle of wine night was an amazing deal! The food was good but we did feel a little over priced for what we got. We would solely go back for the... More

Service was o.k. You could have a similar seafood dinner in many other restaurant's in Charleston for easily less. My martini was made incorrectly but I had sipped out of it, when they brought me a New one they said I could have the olives but took the drink away. The other couple we were with had a very small...

My family and I ate here for dinner on July 17th. We started with calamari and a couple of cocktails, the calamari was very tender and delish and the cocktails were creative and good. Our dinners were tasty we had the snapper, grouper, and scallops. All were very good. The table service was good as well, would definitely recommend.

We went for the Bastille Day event and enjoyed a fantastic 4 course meal with wine pairings complete with excellent service and lots of celebratory activity. A great night out in a good location. The entire party enjoyed all details including a very creative menu.

We ate here based on TripAdvisor reviews, and were not disappointed. We had the dim sum for an appetizer, which was four selections of deliciousness! For our entrees I had scallops and my husband had duck & waffles. Both were amazing! We also had an order of bacon fries, which were more like long hash browns served with sriracha ketchup.... More

Great meal, great service, good location on King Street. A little pricey, but with the special half price on bottles under $59 or half price carafes on Wednesday evenings, it was worth it. Definitely has a great wine and cocktail list too. Great to larger parties, there were 4 of us, but they could have accommodated more.

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. Because we had a large group we ate family style and had the opportunity to try a wide range of the dishes. For... More

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
