Dinner was so delicious. Every meal was exquisite. Beautiful decorated restaurant. Service was a little slow, but made up for it with complementary desserts. If in the Oyster Bay area I would definitely recommend going.

Great sharing snacks, a diverse wine list with a variety of options by the glass and full bar. The service staff are attentive and eager to please. The Outdoor Patio is magnificent with a waterfall fountain, sexy lighting and cool music. The inside features a large comfortable bar and open kitchen concept where you can enjoy the "show". Come join us at Big Fish - don't miss out.
