We had the Restaurant week special. The options were are very good. The salmon was excellent, portions were good and the service was great. We would go back again if in the area. Only downside is that it was very loud in there. Definitely not somewhere to go for a romantic dinner.

great food. we happened to be there for the summer prix fix menu. great apps, and main; the caramel crumble is probably the best i've had and is much better than the granola description they give it. we found it new and fresh that they bring yorkshire pudding puffs instead of bread and while nice, we all found them overly...

Good morning, Thank you for joining us for brunch this past weekend! I'd definitely agree with you about 2 things: 1) the bread was a little too dark (we made adjustments) and 2) the caramel parfait is absolutely to die for! One of my favorite desserts our pastry chef has put out! Thank you again, it was a pleasure having... More

It was Restaurant Week so the place was packed & noisy but prices were excellent! Appetizer crab cakes were wonderful. Salmon entree was tasty but overcooked. For a seafood restaurant to do that is disappointing. Desserts (caramel sundae & blueberry mousse) were excellent. Service was top notch--Adonis was friendly, helpful & efficient. We enjoyed the experience but had hoped to... More

Good morning! Thank you for your feedback on your experience here with us during restaurant week. I'm glad that you found the variety and value in what we are offering of high quality. However, I am apologetic in regards to your salmon and its preparation. We do pride ourselves in the delivery of what we see as our main focal... More

Set in a nice Town House, Bar at entrance and dining upstairs. Being a fish house I would think the fish should taste better than the salad it was served on. Presented well but lacking flavor.

I enjoyed this visit, but was unhappy with the setup of the restaurant. You have to walk all the way to the back of the restaurant in order to check in. The wait time to be seated was 30 min, even though we had already confirmed reservations. Food was good, but nothing to write home to mom about. Crabcake balls... More

My husband brought me to Fishtail for my birthday dinner. The seating was a little tight (we sat against the wall), but the service was excellent. Our waiter, Alex, was very experienced and treated us with superb service. He was probably one of the best restaurant servers we've experienced. We decided to skip the entrees and go with appetizers. We... More

I have dined at a number of David Burke's restaurant (Townhouse is my favorite) and would rate Fishtail as above average. The upstairs ambiance is not very appealing. The seafood offerings are quite diverse and the quality of the food was above average. I recommend the fresh oysters as a nice shared starter. The lobster was just ok. I was... More

They have a $50 dinner special that is good. There is a very busy bar scene--good bartender. Look for the bowl of home made candy near the bottom of the stairs. This is a very popular rest. on the east side .Of course the fish is excellent.

If you like seafood, this is a great place. We enjoyed the food and the wine. The waitress was particularly helpful and nice. We will go back.

We ate here twice & were not disappointed on both occasions, the food was good but a little expensive if we had not of gone during restaurant week when it he meals were discounted. The first time was in the bar, fantastic atmosphere & the second was upstairs in the restaurant. Would definitely go again.
