    I had another wonderful dining experience at Goldfish. This is a neighborhood gem, located at the Perimeter Mall. Wonderful and attentive wait staff and the food is always delicious. My date and I had a late reservation and we were seated right away. Wonderful atmosphere. Cozy and vibrant. Will definitely be coming back again. :-)

    We went for a birthday dinner. We were sat pretty quickly, per our reservation. The server was good at first, then fell off the face of the earth. The restaurant wasn't busy, so we're not sure what the hold up was. It took about 45 mins to get our apps, then another 45 to get dinner. And, dinner didn't all come out at the same time. It took a while to get our drinks (soft drinks and alcohol), as well. Usually, I have no problem with the service there. But this time, I was not pleased. Especially since it was my birthday.

    Normally our experience at Goldfish is excellent. Unfortunately that was not the case this time. We had a really tiny table that was uneven. The service was really slow and the Salmon was not as good as it normally tastes. This may just have been an "off" night. We will still come back because our prior experiences have been so good.

    I have not been to Goldfish for at least 3 years but back then, was always satisfied with everything. In that regard, nothing has changed - excellent service, top quality food, good ambiance. I was there for a business lunch and had the tempura halibut and garlic green beans - both were excellent. Everyone else had the crab cakes and loved them. One thing, the seat cushions in the rounded booths are lacking in support in some places, so some of my colleagues sat lower than they would have liked.

    I took my daughter to Goldfish to celebrate her birthday; the food was great but the service definitely needs improvement. Our waiter was not at all attentive and we seen him when he took our order and brought us our check. We were served our water and drinks, but he did not offer us the complimentary bread that I thought was served at every table nor did he acknowledge my daughters birthday which I told the hostess I wanted to have a dessert come out but we were not asked if we wanted dessert. It is the little things that matter when it comes to providing good customer service.

    Goldfish never disappoints! I had the soft shell crab tempura and a specialty roll - yummy! Others in my party had the evening special of shrimp and scallops, and one ordered haddock. Typically I am too full to order dessert. Everyone was very pleased with their meals. The mixed drinks were very good (they don't skimp on the alcohol like some places). Overall a great meal all around!

    I came here with 2 clients and 1 co- worker and the food and service were good but not great. The issue with this place is the loudness and acoustics make it very difficult to discuss business or anything else in terms of lunch with clients. With all of the competition that there is in Atlanta these guys need to do this.

    The food was very good, well prepared, hot on arrival, good presentation and very tasty. Booths are nice, but if you are not in a booth the tables against the wall are too close together; you might as well be dining with your neighbors on both sides. The noise level was so loud in the entire restaurant and bar that it was next to impossible to have a normal conversation with the person sitting across from you.

    This was our first visit to Goldfish, which unfortunately left a bad enough taste with me that I don't care to go back. We never got our appetizers, first thing ordered even before drinks. Informed our waiter when our entrees arrived and he seemed bothered by the fact that we still cared to have the order brought out to the table. Then never got our side salads with our meal. Never got a refill in the hour we were there however the room was full of plenty of waiters standing around at the back counter. The waiter tool the charge for the appetizer off our ticket but his attitude about it was horrible and we didn't ask for him to void the charge in the first place. Overall, not for us at all just because of the service.

    I ordered the tempura lobster tail and there was a lot of batter and it was a little greasy. I got the special of the day which was a fish dish and I substituted it for blackened salmon. The salmon was over cooked and the blackened part was very hard and crispy. The side dish was mashed portatoes with lobster but there were little bits of lobster and not much of it. Perhaps this was an off day for the cook, however, I was not impressed and I will not be back.

    This was my 2nd time eating here. The 1st time was for lunch & the food was great. This time my food was great, my husband's, the most important one that day, was good. I wanted it to be great. My youngest son (11) had a cheese quesadilla from the kid's menu. It was a very small portion & did not come with a side. My order came out wrong and my entre portion was much smaller this time than the 1st time and this was dinner. We had to ask for bread, only to find out they had run out of hush puppies. My oldest son ordered the shrimp and grits with no tomatoes, but it came out with tomatoes. The excuse was a shift change.

    Picked this restaurant mainly for the cold bar selection and sushi. We also ordered a couple pieces of the fresh fish (prepared pretty much anyway you want). Sushi chef was spot on with the freshness and presentation. There were no faults in food or service. Will try the other here-to-serve locations.

    The food was great but the service was disappointing . I had to ask 3 different waiters for bread before they brought bread to the table. When my order came to the table I had to send back because not everything was one plate . I order grouper that came with rozotto and all they brought me was a piece of Fish. It took a while for them to rectify

    I don't know that I ordered anything to be blown away by, but after rave reviews from friends, I thought my meal was just okay. Let me say that I would return to take a try at finding something more impressive. I was a little underwhelmed at the portions versus the price, even for seafood. The service was good and for a Saturday evening, it was relatively slow business. The restaurant is very spacious so there isn't too much noise or conversation overlaps between tables.

    I've dined at Goldfish only once before; four years ago actually and it was for a special occasion. Last Saturday it was for another special occasion and it was FANTASTIC. The staff was super accommodating considering we're were 45 minutes late for our reservation. Marissa(?) was top notch for beginning to end, making spot on menu recommendations, from appetizers to entrees to dessert (which I didn't get because I was so full from the amazingly delicious crab stuffed shrimp and mashed potatoes). I will be back again! A huge thank you to Goldfish for a superb dining experience!

    While the food was great, our waitress was rude. Our waitress seem to have an attitude with me and my wife from the moment we entered the Resterant. I don't know why but she may have check on us maybe twice the whole night and the restaurant was almost empty. She seemed friendly with others as we watched from afar. I would call her and it seem like she was ignoring me. The food was great but the service sank that night. I've been told by others service is usually great, so I will try it again! I hope they are better this time.
