    Our food was outstanding. I had the Crab Crusted Sea Bass, others had the shrimp, one the salmon. All was very good. Our waitress suggested we buy the most awesome bottle of wine, Seven Falls . It was very good.

    This was the worst steakhouse I've ever been to, if you can even call it that. For $200, you'd expect table cloths and maybe a candle or something fancier than a pub setting. Terrible wine list and the food was mediocre. Would never go back.

    We had eaten here a couple of years ago and enjoyed it very much. This last visit my husband and I didn't care for the food. He had the crusted halibut and I had the seared scallops with corn salsa both dishes were quite bland. We will try a different restaurant next time we go.

    We've been to the Blackfish a number of times and in all honesty the food was very disappointing this last visit. One steak was underdone, both filet mignon's were over-powered by the huge topping of blue cheese (& we both normally enjoy a good blue cheese). Veggies were okay but nothing to write home about. Service was adequate, however, when asked if they had gluten free crackers to accompany their flat bread the response we got from our server was as if we had asked a ludicrous question, we had to ask for a chiller for our open bottle of white wine as it was getting warm sitting on the table and there was a mix-up with one of our appetizers. All in all the food was sub-par for the price and the service was just 'okay'.

    We just visited Blackfish for dinner prior to seeing a comedy show this past Saturday Nov. 8, 2014. We were a group of eight our table was ready on time, Collette our server was great even when we wanted to order two bottles of Duckhorn initially she told us they were out which apparently happens frequently, which is a disappointment and should be remedied as our reservation was for 5:15 pm (the start of their dinner service). However, she found three bottles which we happily took and ordered apps and dinner. Apps came out nicely presented, main courses not so much. The presentation-lacking-the plates were messy, kinda thrown together and we had a couple Halibuts that were overcooked. For the $$$ not impressed. Dessert was great tho!!

    I ordered the filet mignon medium and it was presented as rare so I had to send it back. By the time it arrived cooked properly, my husband was halfway through his dinner. The meal was very good but not great. However, we will go back and try something different next time.

    The food was absolutely delicious, but the service was even better! We had the bacon wrapped prawns and salmon and they were both wonderful. Our waitress was attentive and very friendly, making us feel special. We went on a Wed night so there weren't a lot of people there, but it has a cozy feel to it.

    The food and service is very good. Since the restaurant specializes in salmon, we tried several salmon appetizers and entree's. Just wonderful tasting food. The side dishes surprised us with vibrant tastes that went well with fish. We also tried the oyster sampler which was also great. However, the restaurant was so loud that we had to scream over the noise to talk to each other. This was the only negative that prevented giving this place five stars.

    Energetic doesn't really describe it. It was just too loud. A couple of big parties killed the usual romantic intimate atmosphere. Hard to enjoy good food and wine when clearly over served folks are being very loud. However, they have a right to be here too. And the wine cellar tour really was great!

    We dined at Blackfish before the Led ZepAgain concert. Our server (Maria) was EXCELLENT. She knew everything on the menu and made appropriate recommendations. She timed everything perfectly from the appetizers, wine, soups, entre, and dessert. We did not feel rushed. Great wine list. The booth we had was secluded and just right for any romantic occasion.

    Had the crab crusted halibut. Expensive. The fish tasted older and rubbery, not much crab, even the presentation was subpar. Wasn't too impressed with the oysters either. There are far too many good to great oyster houses around the Puget Sound for what I ate here. The service is what I've learned to expect from the tribal casino, which isn't complimentary. With drinks, the bill for supper was far too high. I went here due to the options on the menu. It's clear to me now that reading the menu was the best part.

    Unbelievable menu offerings. We had just spent the last three months on the Olympic Peninsula as campground hosts... we were so remote that we could not find fresh fish! On the Peninsula! Blackfish has an amazing menu of fresh caught offerings and I believe, time provided, we would have stayed to enjoy all of them. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience

It was very busy but the entire staff was great - never flustered or cranky - always gracious and helpful. Our server, Krystal was terrific - she even remembered the number of years married we were noting! Highly recommend.

    This restaurant is amazing. The food, service, ambience, and staff was the best we have experienced in sometime. We were there to celebrate our 12th anniversary and wanted a special place to enjoy ourselves. We were recommended a wonderful bottle of wine. Our salad was the vine-rippened tomato salad. It was the best caprese salad we have had since our trip to Italy last year. Our meals were the felet mignon, and crab-havarti topped halibut. Our server was attentive and happily took our photo of us. For dessert, we were served a chocolate ganache on a beautiful white plate with "Happy 12th Anniversary" written in chocolate. It is a higher end restaurant, so a bit more expensive, but well worth the expense. You will not be disappointed.

    Our night started with a traffic delay with one call to the restaurant they had us rescheduled for 1/2 hour later. The staff seated us so we could watch the kitchen & we were never rushed or were out of anything. The food was incredible, we both picked our seafood from the design your own dinner. Halibut for my husband and prawns for myself. Both were tender and light the sides were also done to perfection.

    The food was amazing. The server was attentive and the atmosphere was perfect for our anniversary. The restaurant itself is very open but the lighting is left low so the feel is very romantic. Husband had the smoked ribs and the meat just fell off the bone. The BBQ sauce was tasty and the fried mac and cheese was to DIE FOR! I had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly. They topped our evening off with a free dessert with "happy 5th anniversary" written in chocolate on the plate. This was definitely the perfect place to have a memorable dinner. We shall return! :)
