“Excellent restaurant in the downtown core”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

We have been to Babelfish a few times, and each time throughly enjoyed our meals. Everything is hot, well presented and the fish melted in my mouth.Staff and owners are very friendly and attentive. A very romantic setting and great for couples! Nice selection of wine, we will be again soon with more friends!

“Great food!...but tips not pooled?”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

We visited the restaurant for the first time and it won't be my last. The food was hot, perfectly cooked (steak) and fast service. The waitress was friendly and prompt. Atmosphere was very welcoming.

My only caveat was when I was leaving and quickly asked the waitress if the tip would be shared among the chef and sous chef? She hesitated and indicated she would try since the tips do not get pooled.

I'm hoping the proprietor corrects this and shares the tips with the more than adequate chef and sous chef!

We are recommending Babelfish Bistro to all my family and friends.
