    I went here for restaurant week, and was pleased with my dining experience. The main course (seared tuna) was a little disappointing, but the grilled octopus and tiramisu were outstanding. I was able to get a great bottle of wine for a very reasonable price, and the service was very good. I'd happily recommend this restaurant to someone searching for upscale seafood.

    it's a change to find a neighborhood restaurant that isn't filled to the rafters and is good. My fault is that there are few choices on the menu and it's Upper East Side prices are displayed, but it is nice to not have to scream over the din and there are plenty of two tables which do not feel squeezed in. Friec calamari was warm,soft and delicious. I will go back.

    We were seated immediately, but took a bit to get our drinks and menus. The bread was not fresh. It was my fiancé's 31st birthday (his first in New Work) and they didn't allow us to substitute the tuna tartare for another appetizer. I understand it's restaurant week, but ONE substitution of the same price for a special occasion should not have been a big deal. Very nice service, but overall the restaurant was highly overrated.

    Initially my friend and I made a reservation for lunch at Fulton and intended to take advantage of the Restaurant Week menu. However, neither one of us was hungry enough to order the three courses which were certainly appealing. We both decided to order the fish burger, a combination of three different kinds of fish accompanied by a salad. We enjoyed and were satisfied with our choice. The restaurant is attractive and the service was attentive and courteous. It was a bit too warm and humid to eat outside on the day we dined, but the outside dining space was attractive.

    What a great experience! First time here, we went with friends for a birthday meal on a Sunday, early evening and couldn't have asked for better. Venue inside was beautifully decorated and although we were a table in the middle of the room it felt spacious, the servers/ wait staff had no problem scooting round us to provide fantastic service. The food was delicious and very well presented, wait staff were attentive without encroaching on our conversation. We had originally booked due to restaurant week, it didn't matter, the menu was very reasonably priced and we ended up making choices from the a la carte menu anyway. Overall a terrific first time experience and would definitely recommend!

    We went for Sunday brunch and the atmosphere was pleasant with large tables and big windows that let the light in. Food was kind of average - not memorable - and pretty sparse. Everything is a la carte and you need to order a starter to have a satisfying meal. Staff was friendly and attentive.

    Dishes ordered at the table included: Blue Point oysters, grilled octopus, heirloom gazpacho, skate wing with chickpea puree and roasted vegetables, shrimp and pesto pasta, seared tuna with basmati rice and asian vegetables, and apple tart. The tuna was a little bland but overall everything was delicious. Comparing the restaurant week price fix cost of dinner to the plates individually, there was no cost benefit.

    My friend and I had a delightful dinner in our neighborhood at Fulton. Our server was very attentive and gave us good advice when we asked for it. We shared everything, from a fresh octopus appetizer to savory lobster pot pie and generously portioned soft shell crabs. Our wines, an albarino and a prosecco, were delicious. We appreciated never having to ask to have our water glasses refilled or to have to flag down someone for something extra because all the staff came by from time to time to make sure we had what we needed. It was a very warm evening, but the restaurant was comfortably air-conditioned, not so cold that I needed to put on the sweater that I had brought along.

    Just dined there on Father's Day. Our group was six adults, an active toddler in a high chair and an infant in a stroller. The staff was wonderful and tried very hard to be accomodating. For example, our server asked if we wanted to order for the toddler first and then brought her food out very quickly. Food was very good and everyone was happy with their meal. Overall, it was a very pleasant dining experience. I only wished that we could have sat outside but they sadly do not take large groups.

    The menu was intriguing -- there were many dishes I would have liked to try. I loved the arctic char with peas, mushrooms, and pea shoots that I chose. We ordered our wine by the glass -- one sauvignon blanc and one French chardonnay -- and each tried the other's and they were both excellent: lovely bouquet and complex flavors. Our reservation was at 6:15 and the restaurant was lively but not noisy.

    We had a disappointing experience with the reservation. After making the OPen Tabler reservation, we called to reserve a specific table for our 6 PM reservation. When we got there there were only 2 table in use and one was the table we had reserved. When we complained the hostess, in a not particularly pleasant way, said that someone may have given the table away while she was busy. No apology. In her view we were at fault for asking for a specific table and upsetting her practice.

    We'd expect the seafood to be good; after all, Fulton's is a child of Citarella. It is also a very comfortable place for a long lunch with friends. Partly though because it isn't very full. We come often, and only a couple of times have more than a third of the tables been taken. My greatest worry is that, with so few customers, it will close. Which would be a great loss to the neighborhood.

There are more expensive places that do not do nearly as good a job of providing an excellent all around experience. We will surely be back.

    We requested a quiet table against the back wall as my husband is hard of hearing. Told they could not promise a specific table but would try their best to fill our request. On arrival, no empty tables against the back wall so we were given a side table which was very noisy. We requested another table in a semi-alcove and were told, despite repeated requests, that the area was being held for 2 parties of 2. We were still denied a move despite our tables being also able to handle 2 parties of 2 and there being many empty tables in the restaurant. Finally after our many requests, we were moved to the alcove. When leaving amid many empty tables, were told by the manager that the requested was very complicated for them to meet???

    Fulton is all about quality food, especially fish. Its not about noise or 'being seen'. the fish is the freshest in the city as it is supplied by Citarella fish market, and everything else is of comparable quality. The noise level is civilized.
