They say at Fish, "Innovative Cuisine," and they actually deliver. Comfortable, modern atmosphere filled with a young and energetic crowd. Friendly staff that is at the same time professional, attentive and exacting. All appetizers and entrees we tried were well thought out, interesting and tasty without trying too hard and becoming weird. In short, Fish achieves all that restaurants today... More

This was a delightful find. Our food was unique and inspired. The server was wonderful. She was able to guide us to favorites and specialty items we would not have tried on our own. I like this as it is not a touristy place.

I went to Fish the other night to indulge in the Charleston Restaurant Week menu. I started with the mussels du jour, which were delicious, followed by the 72 hour short rib and carbonara gnocchi, and ended with the chocolate dessert. My entree was incredible! We were seated in the upstairs section of the restaurant, and looking around, we were... More

I had a wonderful solo dinner here. On King St, it was just a short walk from the Hampton Inn downtown where I was staying. The cuisine is a sort of French-Asian fusion. I had a pleasant surprise when I got the menu, turns out it was the first day of restaurant week! Not only that, but Fish lets you... More

My husband stumbled on this great find looking for availability for dinner on new year eve ! We lucked out! The service was fabulous ... Very accommodating since we had a kosher diner and two kids. Although there was no kids menu they worked with us. It's definitely more for an adult palette since the combinations were very "out of... More

Had dinner at Fish on King Street - what a pleasant surprise to find creative pairings of ingredients presented in a very artful manner. Duck DimSum was to die for - don't miss going here!

My family had an enjoyable meal at Fish. We shared the Dim Sum and octopus appetizers--great presentation and quite tasty. We each had different fish entrees and all were equally good. Sadly, no room left for dessert. The service and atmosphere met our expectations. As noted by others, the menu offers many non- seafood entrees if you are so inclined.... More

I have wanted to try Fish for a long time and finally had the chance last Saturday. Despite the name I had a taste for short ribs which were excellent. We also sampled the dim sum which was also great. I must say that I found the gnocchi carbonara to be a bit bland. Overall, service was great and we... More
