    Took a chance and made a reservation here since it is a block from Chrysler Hall and I was going to a show. Fantastic atmosphere, service and food. In addition, if they vallet park you, you can leave your car there after dinner and walk across street to see your show. Saves you from having to go and park again after dinner. Highly recommend this place!

    Party of four dined on a Tuesday night. We were warmly greeted. "Kat" was our waitress. She explained the specials, which were varied. Two in our party ordered the She Crab soup. The bowl was huge and both licked the bottom of the bowl. I had the crab spring rolls. They were equally good. For entrees two had oysters, one had fried shrimp, I had a Chef special- Cajun shrimp pasta. All loved their choices. Kat was a great, professional waitress. Very personable and attentive. Overall a great dining experience.

    We were very happy with our experience all the way around at this restaurant. We went early because we were going to a show at 8 pm so I don't know what it is like at prime dinner hours. Service was great as was the food we ordered. Well made cocktails and nice wine list, too. We will return.

    This was our second trip back to 456 Fish with a group that comes into town once a year for a conference. Last year the food was outstanding, which is why we returned. This year, not so much. My entree was outstanding, it was the fish of the day and I ordered it blackened. It was very moist and flavorful. The sides were good, not really memorable. Two of my companions ordered the cashew crusted mahi and it was so dry it was pretty much inedible. Another companion ordered the crab cakes and said they were mushy. Although the food was not up to par, and neither were the cocktails, the service was excellent. Very attentive and split 8 checks with no errors.

    Went to 456 fish because we had a play at the Chrysler. They were out of martini glasses when we ordered our martinis. My husband ordered the fish special which was dry. We ordered a nine dollar salad that I would not have paid a dollar, And my flat iron steak, which was also a special, was tasteless. I'll have to find another place downtown to go.

    We came for a date night after recommendation from a friend. The food was excellent! Crab cakes, fish, and a beef special offered that night were so good! The chocolate lava cake dessert was very nice. Great wine menu as well. Staff were friendly, and spot on with the great service. Thought the restaurant was pretty, romantic, and lively. Enjoyed the experience very much and eager to come back again.

    We eat there perhaps once to twice a month. A couple of years ago, the performance in the kitchen was spotty, but over the 1-1.5 years, we have enjoyed great service and outstanding food. The wild boar last Saturday sold out by 2000, and it was delicious - paired with a great Petit Sirah off the wine list.

Thy had taken the crabtini off the menu since the last time we were there but they were able to make something similar for us since we had our heart set on it. The service was wonderful and all of the food was lovely. We'll be back again for sure next year with Mom but hopefully before then!!

    The restaurant name suggests something modern, maybe bistro style. In fact its an old converted pool hall and quite traditional. Nice enough for that though and the meal was enjoyable. Service was pleasant and helpful and the bill not too steep.

    We had been there for drinks in the past and the martini's were very good as they were again. It was on the restaurant week list, perfect opportunity to check it out. We started with calamari and she crab soup, both were excellent! Loved the hot rolls! My wife had the salmon and it was very good. It came with spinach and mashed potatoes, very nice dish! I had the potato encrusted crab cakes. I had never had them that way before. I really liked them, crisp on the outside and moist on the inside, quite tasty! For desert, creme brulee and canoli, both were good. The service was very good. It got a little noisy in there after a while, but it was a very good dining experience, I highly recommend!

    Uneven experience at 456 on a recent Saturday night. First, the restaurant was freezing. There was a little girl at an adjacent table crying because she was so cold. They had actually wrapped cloth napkins around her to try and get warm! The gentleman at the table next to us joked he had asked for sweatpants and a sweatshirt. When we asked to move to another table not in the arctic air blast, it was significantly more comfortable. Food was great for two in our party, but my daughter's "medium" filet was barely cooked-not even to the medium rare level. Server was very apologetic. Manager did not appear to care and seemed uncomfortable even interacting with customers. Waitress was wonderful throughout; manager not so much.

    Our waitress was very detailed when she reviewed the menu with us. The restaurant itself is pretty awesome. The valet parking is a big plus. Unfortunately, it took us awhile to get our food. We were told that the kitchen was slammed. It was a Saturday evening. I'd definitely dine here again but perhaps during a slower time.
