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.

Absolutely world class. Busy, noisy restaurant in a former Manhattan town house. Superb fish menu with a bit of chicken and beef for the non-fish folks. Went with four and each had different and superb dishes from appetizer to dessert. Have a look at the menu on their website for details. Menus and dishes change periodically. Service was friendly and... More

Staff attentive, well appointed dining areas on 2 floors, queue for restrooms!! At $100 ave per person I would have expected the dishes to have been a little more tasty. Poor starter of calamari and white bean - didn't really taste of anything, overcooked swordfish main with a solid clump of angel hair pasta underneath, and a well hyped brown... More

We chose this location as it was walking distance from our hotel. The brunch menu was limited but had much to offer. The Lobster Egg bake was wonderful as was the Salmon/Tuna Tartar. My salmon entree over a spring pea/fava bean mixture was cooked to perfection. We will definitely make this a stop on futureJN visits toNY.
