“yes all the reviews are correct, a top notch restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Along with my teenage kids, we had dinner at the Flying Fish based on the Trip advisor recommendations. It was simply awesome. Tempura, dungeness crab, salmon combined with well priced wines made for an excellent evening and I would certainly visit again.

“Great food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Visited Carmel with friends last weekend and this was our favorite meal of the trip! Loved the wooden interior... food and service... top notch! Would visit again, even with many other options for dining in the area.

“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This restaurant is tiny. Its food is wonderful. I tried the black cod, something you usually can't find on the East Coast. I explained my dietary restrictions to the owner who was more than forthcoming. The service was both excellent and informal.
This was a really fine California seafood restaurant, with Asian overtones. You will not be disappointed

“Excellent Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

The restaurant is located right on Mission so it's central to everything in Carmel. However, it is set back from the street and actually below street level. For those seeking dramatic views of Carmel, this isn't it.

We were surprised by how small the restaurant was considering how popular it is on T/A.

We ended up conversing w/people sitting on both sides of our table.

The service was laid back, informative and quite attentive.

The food was excellent. It is extremely (as one could guess from the name) fish-centric but they did have a couple of non-fish options.

The quality of the food, the preperation and presentation were outstanding. I had the seared ahi and my wife had the seabass. We had a crab appetizer that was an amazingly generous serving.

Wine options were good and the prices quite reasonable. It's not hard to see why this place has garnered the accolades.
