Diner Reviews
  • "Our third time there. Excellent food, but the service, while friendly, is lacking. On a Sunday night there seemed to be just one waiter and two assistants for the entire restaurant. We go there for the high quality food (that part of the equation has never disappointed) and even better, we had forgotten about the $30 Sunday prix fixe dinner -- a truly outstanding bargain. But this was the second time that we had oh-so--long waits between visits from our waiter."

  • "Nice place for well-prepared interesting fish. Perched behind the doors of a nondescript Syosset office building complex, Coolfish is a great spot for fresh fish prepared in an innovated fashion. The amateur wait staff is enthusiastic and helpful. Check for the presence of one of many special groups who occupy a good deal of the real estate, then run, don't walk, to this Syosset standby for a nice seafood dinner in comfortable surroundings."

  • "The waiter we had was rude and not attentive. We had a problem with one of the entrees that we sent back When it returned, It still was not up to par and his comment was "I guess the chef is having a bad day." Not a very professional response. The wine list was very overpriced. We had tried for a 7pm reservation but none was available on Open Table. We settled for 6pm and while eating dinner, we noticed the restaurant was more than half empty at 7pm as well as when we left at 7:30. When I questioned the host he replied we had a lot of cancellations. Hard to believe. Cool Fish has a long way to go to match the excellent food, service and wine list that was provided by the previous owner. We will not return."

  • "My husband and i met another couple here for dinner last week. All 4 of us enjoyed our fish entrees very much. In particular the chilean sea bass and the snapper were terrific. Very comfortable seating and we stayed for about 2 hours. The service was excellent. Its a little pricey with the entrees averaging about 33.00 but we enjoyed it very much. Would definitely go back for a special occasion."

  • "The service was good. The lobster was overcooked and dry, no butter taste in butter poached lobster. The chilean sea bass was a bland dish. Dessert was good!"

  • "This place is circling the drain. I haven't been here for over a year and there has been no improvement. To start with, we were sat at a table where the wall sconce was torn off and the overhead light was burned out as well. Complaints that we could barely see the menu, went unacknowledged. One person in our party asked if she could have an appetizer as a main course, and after going back twice to the kitchen to ask the same question, the answer was no. So they continue to have a limited menu and be rather unaccomodating about that as well."

  • "My wife and I were hosting an out of town client and friend who is a seafood connoisseur. Well I am happy to report that there was a huge smile on the face of our guest as he took his first bite of his wonderfuly prepared and presented seafood dish of porcini dusted big eye tuna. We had the pleasure of dining early and being able to take advantage of the price fixed dinner which offered an incredible dish of salmon atop a black beluga lentil base in a beurre rouge sauce.....simply delicious. Oh....let's not forget the wonderful chocolate desserts that provided the cap to our outstanding meal. We look forward to our return and sampling of other delicacies on the menu."

  • "The food and service were both everything I would expect from a great restaurant like this. The restaurant itself was pretty vacant, but we went on a chilly Wednesday night at 8pm, so maybe that's why. Food was excellent, great attentive wait staff."

  • "Coolfish was everything I expected, based on the reviews I checked on ahead of visiting there, except for the difficulty in finding the place! They should mention that they are located inside an office park, as the sign on the road is the only indication of where to turn but then it's not so obvious once you get into the office park. However, once I found it I was not disappointed. The staff could not have been more accommodating, from the hostess, to the bartender, to the waiter and the food was great. I would definitely return to Coolfish."

  • "Excellent holiday meal. The ambience is very beautiful specially- time of year. We had a party of seven and a lot of different entrées all the meals were great. The Chilean Seabass entrée is the best I've ever had. Rock shrimp appetizer was also a standout. Chocolate bag dessert always a family favorite."

  • "I loved the atmosphere of the dining room. Quiet enough for a romantic date night but not too loud that you have to shout over other conversations. The waitress was attentive but not intrusive. When I did not care for the fancy cocktail I ordered, she replaced it immediately with a new drink, no questions asked. I had the Chilean sea bass and it was delightful. The tuna tar tar appetizer was delicious and my husband raved about the shrimp dish. We loved everything so much we ordered dessert. The creme brûlée and gelato choices did not disappoint. Overall, a wonderful date night out!"

  • "We dined at Coolfish Saturday evening 11/9/13 and we had a party of 14, we were celebrating a birthday & engagement. The food was wonderful, but the service was definitely lacking. It took an inordinate amount of time to serve drinks and the water glasses were never refilled. Although they did not rush us and we were able to sit and enjoy the evening, it took a long time to serve the food. We spent a significant amount of money and for the pricey menu I would expect more top notch service. I have dined here before and it was fine. Maybe it was the fact that we had such a large party that threw them off. I would give them another shot."

  • "We have been to Cool Fish on several occasions. This time my husband and I went for restaurant week. The food is always great and we never leave dissatisfied. The Chilean Sea Bass was awesome. Seasoned just right. I will always recommend this spot for a relaxing dinner. We usually go early before the crowd - between 6:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. Never feel rushed."

  • "We went to Cool Fish on a Tuesday Night to celebrate our friends 'big" birthday. We were surprised to see two special menus in addition to the regular menu. One menu read"Tuesday Date Night Menu" For $50 you and your "date " were entitled to an appetizer, two entrees and a dessert. All big enough to share. The food was delicious ,especially the mussels and the cappucino gelato . The staff was friendly and accomodating. A great dining experience."
