“Tasty seafood”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Friendly, not pushy staff when we dropped in for a look in the afternoon and made reservations.. Excellent mushroom rice, tasty scallops, shrimp, oysters and calamari steak. However, serving of ginger sesame cabbage was the size of a relish, one and a half bites, a problem because it is very good. I suppose I could have asked for more, but I had already asked for more creme fraiche as the beans came with only a small, light smear. If it is described on the menu I don't expect to ask. The salsa with jicama was perfect. I would return.

“Fishwife Pacific Grove”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Reservations are a must - a local favorite that's always packed. The service was good. The seafood fresh with lots of sides added. Went there with 10 other people and everyone was happy with their dinner.

“Disappointing because a friend had recommended when she went about 5 years ago.”
Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

The free calamari appetizer (coupon) was delicious so it was disappointing that our fisherman's bowls of tiilapia and mahi mahi were bland. Waiter recommended a particular wine for $8/glass that was clearly a mass produced jug wine. Had to buy a 7-up to make a wine cooler of it so I could drink it. At $18 per entree, I would have expected better. The service was attentive.

“Nice dinner and great ambiance”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Fishwife has a varied menu, something for everyone at a decent price. It was presented nicely and everyone in our group enjoyed it.
