I live in the neighborhood and recently went to Fishtail. The food was excellent. I had the lobster dumpling and my wife had the crab cake to start. The dumpling was flavorful and the beggar's purse presentation was fun. The crab cake came in a unique shape and had a very good texture (not as crunchy as other reviews cited).... More

I had previously been to the David Burke Townhouse and loved it, though it was very expensive. I gave it a terrific review and so I wanted to try one of David Burke 's other restaurants. Absolutely request to be seated on the second floor because the first floor has the bar and seating for dinner but it is crazy... More

I had a pasta, tortelinni, with angry lobster......mostly angry (very spicy) and little lobster and a lot of pasta and some little sausage pieces mixed in... More

We had reservation on Tuesday night for 5:30. By 6:30 every table was taken. The service was very good. We had a simple green salad, grill arctic char and simply grilled Scottish salmon. All were very delicious. The atmosphere is very nice. However, like most of the things in NYC it is expensive. My glass of wine $18. Anyways, the... More

As you would expect the food here is excellent. It is expensive and a rather formal restaurant. The red wall decor livens the place up. I bring out of town guests here for special events and they love it.

It is the third time we come here. We love the place for its simple and causal atmosphere and the great fishes they propose on the menu. Our friends got the Bronzino cooked in salt which we got last time. Delicious. My wife choose the monkfish and I took the black cod. We were not disappointed. I had the smoked... More

When you can pull together good food, a nice decor and good service, it makes for a good meal. Had a group dinner here and everyone was pleased with the overall experience. We were on a limited menu given the group, but I would like to go back to give it a proper try. Very nice wines.

The food was mediocre especially for the price and not a terribly interesting menu. Totally amateurish service: slow, the wine was poured without tasting option, and then poured for host first. Check brought without asking if they could bring it. Bright lights put on which made us feel we had to leave - at 10pm? in New York?

The menu was not as exciting as last time and we had a more difficult time finding something to order. The service was ok. We were not as impressed the second time.

Good morning Mike, I wanted to thank you for your feedback from your most recent visit.
