A word from Flying Fish - DC
The new Flying Fish Restaurant of Old Town Alexandria presents it"s concept: "Restaurant as Art". The Flying Fish was decorated eighteen months before it's grand opening February of 2005. All of the dining surfaces and several murals in the restaurant were tastefully painted by local fine
artists with impressions of sea life, and "Great Moments".

Took my wife out for a semi casual
dinner with three friends. We were happy with the overall experience. Our server was attentive and was interactive with the group."

High quality seafood expertly
prepared and beautifully presented. Flying Fish has been consistent over the years and is on our must visit list whenever in the D.C. Area."

Despite our reservation, they had
to seat us in the bar area on a wobbly high-top table. Our servers were pleasant enough, but busy (we had more than one server). Our food was really mediocre. Although this place specializes in seafood, the best part of my meal was the veggies. The seafood was really bland. I wish I had ordered sushi. The folks sitting at the sushi bar looked to be getting the best plates in the house."

The bar looks like the best area
in the restaurant, but the rest has a cafe feel... Tile floors, weird stucco yellow walls, odd layout, outdated booths, and cafe style tables (although with artwork on them- albeit odd artwork for a sushi restaurant - sports scenes). The food was decent, as well as the price, but we expected something fancier. We were also a bit frustrated when the only available time on open table was 6:30 and we had to change our babysitter (earlier than planned). Then saw many (most) tables were open throughout our dinner up to the time we left."

Food was subpar, ambiance was the
same. Nothing special. Do not plan to go back."

Decent food, but kind of a
dive-bar atmosphere (but not in a good way). The food was OK - nothing wrong with the sushi, just nothing special. For the quality and atmosphere you got, it was overpriced."

I really like this place! The food
is awesome to the say the least. I've been twice and both times were amazing."

Went to Flying Fish with a group
of 4. We all all ordered off of the entree menu, not the sushi menu. I was not impressed with the entrees, they lacked depth of flavor, but the fish was all very high quality. I have had sushi here before and it was good, so I recommend diners stick to sushi. Ambience and service were great and you get a free glass of wine or hot saki on Sunday nights!!"

This is a great neighborhood
restaurant, and they did well to cater to our large party of 10 that included 5 kids. The service was attentive, and the food-for the most part-was tasty. The only exception, in my opinion, was the fried calamari. It was, unfortunately, tasteless.; a bit of salt would've made the difference. Our table ordered from the sushi bar and the kitchen, and everything came out timely. We also ordered wine from their wine menu, which was a decent selection. Overall, a very good experience!"

This is a great cozy restaurant.
Been here twice and have not been disappointed by the food. The noise level can be quite loud at times depending on the people you are sitting next to. Definitely tell the server to bring out the food as its ready, to keep from anything being cold. The karaoke is definitely fun, music lively, and if you are there to catch a game then there are enough tvs to go around."

The Sushi was extremely fresh. The
presentation was exceptional. Our server was extremely helpful and friendly"

I went to the Flying Fish with a
friend from work, who normally doesn't like Sushi. I was able to convince her to try some of the rolls and we were both impressed with the taste. I really liked the atmosphere of the restaurant and wine was tasty, as well."

Yikes. Like other less than
mediocre restaurants, the food here has the classic "kids in the kitchen" quality to it---they use fresh ingredients but they're poorly cooked, poorly seasoned, etc. There's no way this place will survive another year."

Tried the Flying Fish on a whim
and found it to be an enjoyable experience for both food and atmosphere. The food was good - not the best mahi mahi I've ever had but tasty and a sizable portion to go along with crisp mixed vegetables done just right. The service was excellent too - our server was polite and prompt without being suffocating. There were a limited number of sushi specials which were also quite good. WE would consider returning next time we're in the area."

We were sat well to the back of
the restaurant, perhaps because I had a young son. Still not a good first impression. The server was a bit over eager when looking to process our payment; perhaps her shift was ending. Otherwise, the sushi was excellent. Nice half price happy hour special on wine bottles."

Service is good an staff are
friendly. Restaurant is a bit outdated and not a warm feeling. Food is just ok. We had a moderate amount of different selections at our table of eight and no one was blown away with anything tasting great. Also if you have children in your party, you may want to pack them a meal or choose elsewhere because there is not a good selection for children."
