My elderly mother, brother and I "tried" to have Christmas dinner at this restaurant. What a disappointment! The menu posted at the website was not available and "special" menus were provided. There was only one entrée under $30. The salads were pathetic...a pear and arugula salad with two of the thinnest, smallest slices of pear I have ever seen -... More

The Blue Fish is in avant-garde Avondale. On Sundays it serves an outstanding Brunch. Parking is easy at the reserved parking lot beside the restaurant. That is important as parking on the street is difficult as all the spaces fill up quickly. There is an interesting and varied entree menu to include breakfast, lunch and dinner main courses. A complementary... More

Very disappointed in The Blue Fish. This was one of our repeat restaurants while in the Avondale area but we are done. The service in the bar area was a joke...first I ordered a Gin/Tonic...when it arrived it was flat. I understand that type of thing can happen (despite the fact a good bartender would catch it). I then had... More

Not as I remembered from previous trips. The oysters were fresh & very good I was impressed with that. However the staff was EXTREMELY slow & forgetful. The food while tasty took forever to come out. The amount of $ I spent for the meal\service time i was not at all happy about. It made me wish I had stayed... More

It was my first time Nov. 21 for my birthday. I chose this restaurant specifically to try their oysters. I did the half &half oysters - Rockefeller and Bienville. Price was okay and actually fresh but it wasn't prepared great at all. For me, it had an odd taste to it and basically masked the freshness of the oysters. The... More

I had a Wild Alaskan Salmon dish that was just exceptional. It came with a vegetable assortment that was not over-cooked and a tasty mashed potato side. My husband had the Chilean Sea Bass with a side of red beans and rice. He also was very pleased. I have recently been to some other fish restaurants and this was a... More

The Blue Fish's proximity to The St John's River adds to its appeal only to be topped by the Avondale Shopping area which invites window shopping and a visit to The Florida Creamery for a 1950's ice cream cone. But dining is why we chose to stop by after shopping at Town Center and not wanting to overspend on the... More

The exquisite food draws you in, but the fabulous staff brings you back, again and again! We dine there frequently for brunch, but they have the BEST happy hour around! We are lucky enough to live in the neighborhood which allows us to visit often, but even if we didn't, we would make the drive to get there!

We love to go the The Blue Fish! When we make reservations they have it marked in their computer where we like to be seated so there is never a problem. Our favorite thing about this restaurant is they have half portions as neither of us can eat a full meal and we have never had a server that was... More
