    We went to Fresh Fish Company to celebrate my wife's birthday. With the OpenTable.com reservation, we were seated within five minutes of arriving even though it was at 6:30 on a Friday evening. The service was outstanding, the portions were really satisfying (bigger than the last time we were there - if I remember correctly), and the preparation of the fish was excellent. For desert, you should try the "Mud pie" if you go.

    Fresh Fish seems always busy which is a good sign, and a sign that their marketing (birthdays) is works. This time the servers seem over-loaded so brusque and in a hurry. It seems to work for the typical clientele. This visit was average.

    Unfortunately, while I've enjoyed this restaurant in the past, the past hasn't changed with its ambiance. The atmosphere was old and tired. The food somewhat reflecting the same in its preparation. This place is out of step with regard to its competition.

    We went to this place for my birthday dinner.The whole place was very noisy and had some kids with bad manners next to our table.Both of our orders were wrong and we had to wait for one another to to get our respective meals. My lobster tail did not taste good. The missing mashed potatoes were very good after finally getting them. All in all it was not a good night out.

    I have been to this restaurant before and had better service but that was 15yrs ago. A lot has changed since then. The service was well below what I had expected.We waited 15 minutes for the server to come by and take drink orders. Once the drink orders came we ordered apps.Most of them were good...and the display was nice. In between eating the apps we had to continually hunt down our server to get more drinks. This whole time she seem disheveled and clearly had too many tables to take care of. Next was the main course....this was disappointing. Everyones food was barley room temp. Nothing was hot including my lobster I ordered. Overall we spent $400(6 people) for a Fresh Fish Experience and we would have been better off going elsewhere.

    The food and everything related to the restaurant was excellent. HOWEVER, I was very unhappy to learn that OpenTable DID NOT send my invite to my dining partner. As a result she didn't show and I ended up eating alone. I was celebrating my birthday, and alone was not how I had planned it!

    We dine here every now and then. Yes, the decor is a bit dated but the fish is always delicious and prepared perfectly. The reason I don't give them 4 stars on food is due to the side dishes. I realize and appreciate that the fish should be the star, but I find the side dishes lacking. This visit I ordered the garlic mashed potatoes for the first time and found them to be pasty. The servers are always knowledgeable and friendly. On this last visit, our server, while friendly and pleasant, was a bit slow in bringing our drinks and taking our order and then again at bringing our check.

    We do not believe that Fresh Fish is as good as it used to be. The sourdough bread, which used to be spectacular is no longer so and the fish is just not quite as good. We had a fabulous waitress and the manager was also very attentive.

    I was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease and must eat gluten free. This restaurant and our server are excellently prepared to deal with this demand. A large portion of the menu is gluten free and clearly notes what is. Our server asked at the initial greeting of us if anyone wanted gluten free bread (it was surprisingly good). The food was good, and the service was excellent.

    Have been to FFC several times for their Copper River Salmon, a seasonal treat. This was first time actually using their birthday club, claiming 63% off the price of luscious halibut just for being a geezer. My beef-eating friend had prime rib and it was an outstanding piece of meat. You will enjoy yourself if you go to the Fresh Fish Company.

The wine selection is awesome, the Riesling was perfect for the lobster entree. Not a huge beer selection. Great meal. Friendly staff. Keep it up! Make reservations or you may wait and get hungrier!

    My friend, Patty and I have birthdays 4 days apart and were born in 1950. We've made it a tradition to meet at least once a year and catch up on things. She lives there in Denver and I live in Gardner. (About 180 miles away) My wife and I have known Patty for over 40 years and The Fresh Fish Company has always been the perfect venue for such a get together. Very much worth the trip there. Thank you for excellent service and great food. As they say, "The ambiance is impeccable."
