  • Our 45th Annniversary; GREAT FOOD!
    SKIPPER
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    We literally stumbled onto the Fish Restaurant & Wine Bar by accident after arriving in Marlborough via a three day car trip from Minnesota. (My cranky potential was high.) My wife wanted fish and I am a hard sell when it comes to fish. I was a commercial fisherman and lobsterman in the Florida Keys, so it can be said I am picky. The Fish Restaurant met and exceeded our highest aspirations. The food was fantastic. The Mediterranean fish soup was the best fish soup we ever tasted, and we make that statement in the context we have been preparing fish soup and experimenting with fish soup recipes for decades. Our entrée, included crustaceans (shrimp), mollusks (scallops) and fin fish (haddock). Fried perfect. Perfect. Perfect.

    Food was excellent waiter was a little too efficient didn't take time to talk to you, didn't really tell you about the specials, or give you some advice on the foods, thought the manager did well in his stopping at each table and talking to the patrons, good customer interaction. If I lived in the area it would be one of my favorite dining spots.

    We recently moved closer to Marlborough and were looking for a place to celebrate the selling of our previous home. We were not disappointed- the food was excellent, the wait staff professional and friendly (as well as prompt), and both the sommelier and executive chef stopped by to make sure all was well. Obviously a very well run establishment. We'll be back!

    My wife and I dined at FISH for dinner in the Bar area and as usual, everything, I mean everything, was excellent. This is our "go to" restaurant when we want top quality, although you do pay for it. The manager always checks to make sure all our dining expectations were met or exceeded. We have dined here many times over the years and the top quality remains steady. Live jazz on Saturdays is a nice touch as well. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

The food was excellent,properly prepared and nicely presented. The portions were perfect. We can't wait to return!

    We've been taking about trying Fish for sometime. We were fortunate enough to call on a night that was slower than usual and had a great dining experience. The fried clam platter and haddock were cooked perfectly and our waitress was very pleasant. She was attentive yet never made us feel rushed.

    We dine our for work quite often and have given this restaurant too many chances to get it right. Our last experience went horribly. According to the manager they were shocked by Open Table requests and were caught short staffed. We decided to give them another chance. However the experience was no different. Let me reinforce, the food is fantastic!! Our waiter, Steven barely introduced himself and was so disengaged it was embarrassing. We arrived on time at 6pm and didn't leave the restaurant until after 9pm. We were the 2nd or 3rd table seated and the second to last to leave. Not our choice. He was slow with drinks, dinner took forever to arrive and the dessert order even longer. No quality checks after meals arrived. Overall another fail

    Food was very good. Highly recd the clam chowder some of the best we had our entire trip. Great atmosphere. Only oddity was we made a reservation for 8 on open table without a problem, when we arrived they told us they would seat us but not together and split our party. Ended up being ok as we put adults at one table and teenagers at another. Would go back and would recd to others visiting the area

    We've eaten at Fish many times before. Usually, the food and service has been pretty good. Had a bad experience Sunday (7/6). Service was poor. Didn't get ordered side dish and when I mentioned it to the server, she didn't seem to care. She also brought the wrong bottle of wine. Food was also poor quality. Halibut was very, very dry. Not what you'd expect for a restaurant called Fish.

  • Really small portions.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 6/28/2014
    We chose this restaurant as we had business in the area. The ambience and decor is really pretty with clean, modern lines. Our waiter was fantastic and immediately made us feel at home. Meals came with a minimum wait time, but we were all very taken back with how small the portions were. Our teenage son could have eaten three times the vegetable pasta dish and the delicious haddock was probably a 4oz portion with two strips of broccolini and four thin grilled asparagus. My father-in-law ordered a lobster type dish (cant remember name) but there could not have been more than 3 oz of meat. Great taste to all the dishes. Wont go back solely because of portion size.

    The positive: Our entrees (seafood cioppino and swordfish) were excellent. I was pleasantly surprised that my cioppino came with a one-clawed lobster. I have to be gluten-free and our waitress knew exactly what I could and could not eat from the menu, and said anything could be cooked to my needs. Desserts were divine. Rose sangria was delish - not sweet, very good. The negative: It was $1 oyster night and at 7:15 they were sold out of all oysters but one type. I ordered four of them and the last was so terrible (rotted? I don't know) I had to spit it out. I had an upset stomach later. Was it the oyster? Was the food not really gluten-free? I don't know. Also, the service was terribly slow. Our entrees and desserts took ages to get to us.

    This was an incredibly delightful experience! LOVED the menu LOVED decor! and live music in open air topped the night! Fabulous find...right in downtown Marlborough! Found it on OpenTable (looking for a new place with good fish) and this place was WAY better than some of the top named places in Boston. Creative drink menu, extensive wine list. Fish -very fresh! Perfectly (and very creatively!) cooked. Sides - were perfectly paired and deliciously presented. staff was attentive (not conspicuous) and good knowledge of menu. very happy to substitute sides on the menu. LIVE music changes nightly - last night was a Brazilian jazz quartet; open air dining...lovely decor....All this AND Free Parking! - Why travel to Boston ever again?!

  • Don’t let front staff keep you away

    Dined on 6/10/2014
    Fish has excellent food with uneven service — but don’t blame the wait-staff. We routinely bring business clients here. If you enjoy jazz, it is the best place to be on Saturday evenings. Sadly, the front end staff are off putting, so much so they might rename the place “Cold Fish”. There is a kind of sneering condescension to the maitre d' that reminds me of the high poppies of Downton Abbey. Some hosts and hostesses convey this attitude as well. We’ve considered taking our business customers elsewhere because of the attitude. Even so, we continue to recommend Fish and hope they can solve their personnel troubles.

    We had an excellent dinner at Fish at 7pm on a recent Sat night. It was a beautiful night and when we got there we requested (and received) a table for two close to the open air doors. The live jazz started at 7:30 and while we were fairly close to the band, it wasn't too loud and we were still able to carry on a conversation and the band was very good! The salmon dinner was excellent and the creme brûlée was to die for. Would definitely recommend!

    Fish is becoming a go to restaurant! I can eat the octopus appetizer all day long and their specials are always a hit with us. The black cod was buttery and the tuna steak was done to a perfect rare. We enjoy trying different wines each time we dine at Fish. Ian has done such a great job selecting the wines.

    Went to Fish for first time. I live an hour away was glad that I went and would make the trip just to go back. Our waiter was very pleasant and the owner or manager stopped by for a very nice chat. I told him that the selection of Oysters and the way they were served was not something that I had expected in this far from the ocean spot. The Shrimp and Grits reminded me of a visit to Charleston, South Carolina and were absolutely delicious. I ordered a top shelf item from the bar and did not expect that they would have it. they did. I was with two companions who were both equally pleased with what they ordered. I go to the well know Sea Food chain restaurant quite often because I like it but this place is better. A five star find.

    We wanted to try something new so we thought that FISH would be a nice place to go for our anniversary dinner. The service was wonderful, but the food wasn't what we had anticipated. The demonstration of our food was nice, but the portion size was not up to par with what we paid for the meal. Overall the restaurant was great, but the food menu and portion sizes need to be tweaked a little to correspond with the price that you pay.

    As always the food was excellent though I would have thought there could be some changes to the menu by now. There was only one main course special, usually 2. Our waitress seemed to be taking her time so from when we entered to when we were served was an hour. The place was packed so the noise level was really high, not from the music but rather the number of people, think they need some sound-proofing. We have dined at Fish 6 or 7 times now and have always left feeling really happy, maybe we shouldn't have gone on a Saturday?
