Just had one of the best meals I have experienced iall of my foodie years. The service was excellent and the food beyond comparison. We are pescetarians and this will now be our "go to" fish restaurant in Philly.

Went to little fish last night, a great BYOB seafood place. It's in a very cool neighborhood with a small but very interesting seafood menu. I had the striped bass and it was amazing...

First, this restaurant is located at 746 S. 6th Street. The former Little Fish was at the Catherine Street address. Same place, same Chef, different location. This restaurant is just 2-4 seats larger, I believe it holds 22-24 seats. You watch the chefs cook the food. The wait staff is efficient and know the menu quite well. The menu is... More

By far my favorite restaurant in Philly. It's intimate and special and the food is out of the world good. If you're in Philadelphia, do yourself a favor and book a reservation here.

We were there with a friend from California who always took me to terrific restaurants when I was out there. We wanted to try the Sunday tasting menu as we thought that would be fun for him. Everything was delicious. I also enjoy watching the food preparation process while I'm there. The service is excellent, and, because of an unexpected... More

This was our first time eating at Little Fish and we were awed by the experience! The restaurant itself is super quaint and, while the tables were fairly close to each other, the room did not feel overly crowded or noisy. We really enjoyed watching the chefs - there certainly was a lot of attention to detail when putting a... More

This very small venue is a bit different from the rest. The interior is simple, 20 seats, a bit nosy and the Chief's kitchen is part of the dinning room. So much fun to watch the chief and his assistant prepare every meal right in front of you. The menu is also a bit different. Perhaps two choices for appetizers,... More

Fabulous meal -- the best fish I have had in Philadelphia, and at a BYOB! A tiny, handwritten menu, all super fresh and super creative. The only miss was that our entrees arrived about 5 minutes apart.

This has long been a favorite of my wife and I. It is a great little byob that does not have a standard menu because it changes daily based on what is fresh at the seafood market. The service is always top notch and the kitchen never disappoints. I have probably been over a dozen times and make sure I... More

This is hands down one of the better (if not the best!) fish centric restaurants in Philadelphia. Additionally, it is a BYOB and that makes it an even more compelling choice to dine here. Little Fish is cozy/cramped and nearly every seat in the house has a birds eye view of the equally cozy cramped kitchen where the chefs do... More
