“Fabulous food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Finally tried this Conshohocken BYO and regret it took us so long.

Decided against the "tasting" menu but enjoyed three courses of outstanding food. We both enjoyed the ravioli- one of the best I have ever eaten. They were so light and the short rib filling was fantastic.

Our main courses were the tuna and the cioppino- the tuna was my favorite because it had a fantastic smoky taste and was accompanied by crispy veggies. We also enjoyed two rounds of bread from the bread basket- don't pass up the delicious pretzel rolls!

Dessert offerings looked wonderful but we opted for the cheese plate and it didn't disappoint.

This restaurant is small and the tables are close together but the noise offers some privacy for conversation in tight spaces.

Can't wait to return!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

Where do I begin. Blackfish is awesome! The food is delicious, interesting and creative! I had a 5 course tasting menu and each dish was fabulous. The crudo and the short rib were each a 10!
Can't wait to go back!

“Consistently extraordinary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

I've now had the pleasure of dining twice at Blackfish, and it is an extraordinary restaurant that pleases on all levels. Top quality ingredients are inventively but lightly prepared into dishes that sing. The oysters with Meyer lemon foam, the hamachi crudo and olive oil poached halibut are three offerings that stand out, but everything has been wonderful. Service is warm and efficient, although the pacing of courses on a Saturday night visit was more leisurely than is ideal. And the space is crisp and inviting. Although it's an hour's drive from home Blackfish is a place that will always be on our list when we want something truly special.

“Better the second time around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

My sister was visiting this weekend and she chose Blackfish with the statement "I know what I'm getting" after I sent her a link to the on-line menu. We enjoyed a terrific meal together last Saturday night. She started with the Short-rib Ravioli, which is what she knew she would order. Truth told - she ordered it to compare to the ravioli her son makes at his restaurant in North Jersey. She thought her son's was better, because it contained more short rib filling. I had the Kona Kampachi Crudo, which we both thought was excellent. For entrees, I had a very good Sea Bass and she had the Amish Chicken, which she pronounced as the best chicken she's had outside of France. High praise, indeed! We split a chocolate dessert with an interesting scoop of sweet potato ice cream. Service was very good and very knowledgeable. The only thing we kind of scratched out heads about was having to ask for bread?

“Great food. Delicious ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

A charming and lovely restaurant in the suburbs of Philadelphia is not to be missed. The food is interesting and delightful. Remember this is BYOB restaurant, so come prepared. Unfortunately we forgot and had to make do. The fish dishes are wonderful - skillfully prepared with enough innovation to keep the classics interesting! I look forward to returning for another outstanding meal.
