Food is amazing and wine selection/ pairings are spot on! Great environment too! Just go early to beat the crowd!

We never judge a restaurant by one experience, so we decided to give Roastfish & Cornbread a second chance after a very disappointing first visit. On our first visit the service was extremely poor and the food was marginal at best. Our waitress seemed as though we were a bother. On our second visit, our server was the only bright spot in our visit. Didn't catch her name, but she wore her hair very short and was very friendly. Unfortunately, even her friendly manner couldn't make up for the fact that our main course was served several minutes before our appetizer arrived. I ordered a lentil salad with Israeli couscous and the couscous was missing. They were out of every dessert on the menu. Overall, the food was uninspired. Sorry, but we won't be going back to Roastfish.

We had fried seafood combo plates with fried okra, hush puppies and sweet potato fries (our weekly allocation of fried food). All were good but not remarkable. Hush puppies were excellent and the batter on the seafood was very light and not greasy. The servers were great and really took care of their customers. The restaurant is in an isolated building that looked as if it was a Mexican food restaurant at one time. Not much atmosphere and probably not a restaurant we would return.

Let me start by saying that they were out of two of the signature dishes - and this was an early dinner. The place was not crowded - there were maybe two other tables that were occupied. So when we called to ask for a reservation, they said that they did not take any, so we wanted to know if they were crowded and they said the place had been dead for some time. Quite a sales pitch.

When we arrived we were seated and proceeded to ask the server questions about the menu. She was brisk and not at all helpful. We ordered the signature roast flounder and the lamb stew. After some time we were told that they were not available.

It was as if we were an huge imposition. What we did get was good, but the waiter hostess was again brisk and borderline rude.
