Great place if you're a seafoodGreat place if you're a seafood fan. The Living Social deal with a bottle of free champagne is an outstanding deal.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFather's Day BrunchFantastic restaurant for family to come together. We were seated upon our arrival. Wait staff was attentive, and most importantly the food was good.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI brought my colleagues hereI brought my colleagues here for a team dinner. They sat us near the back towards the kitchen, and while the concept of an open kitchen looks nice, it's very difficult to hear others talking when you have all the white noise in the background from the kitchen exhaust fans. The food was excellent. Several folks at the table ordered their grilled fish, while others ordered seafood pasta dishes. All of the dishes were well prepared. The server was attentive. I'll be back again, but will definitely request a table away from the back kitchen.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI've eaten at Grillfish manyI've eaten at Grillfish many times during the years I've been in DC, and it is always good experience. I must say, though, that the greens were terrible, as was the asparagus. What did you do?! .6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely ExcellentI'd eaten at the Grillfish that formerly was in Boston a number of times and was very disappointed when I visited and found it had closed. I didn't realize there were other locations, so was beyond happy to run across the DC location. The food was every bit as good as I remembered. The grilled seafood entrees, while served with tasty sides of sauces, are grilled so perfectly there is no need to mask the basic taste of the food.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMReally great brunch!I bought a LivingSocial deal (so did the row of people eating brunch outside) and wasnt sure what to expect. My husband and I had oysters (not part of the brunch deal) to start and they were excellent. Our brunch was delicious. We both had the crab cake eggs benedict on a bed of potato pancakes. The crab cakes were surprisingly good and just the right amount of hollandaise graced the eggs benedict. Even the grilled asparagus were well prepared and tasty. We had mimosas that were mixed with excellent quality juices - orange and peach. A great brunch experience and we'll be back.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPriceyI spend money on seafood, not a problem for me. I spend 30+ on maryland blue crabs weekly, so dishing out money on food is not a problem. I ordered one drink and appetizer and fish and it totaled over $60 just for my meal. As the experience was fun for a ladies night out I would not go back unless someone else was paying.
The food was fresh and coconut dipping sauce for fish was delish. I would recommend for other seafood lovers to go.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!I was so happy to have found this restaurant in DC. I do travel here often and rarely have the opportunity to be in this are close to Georgetown. The food was outstanding and the restaurant was quite informal. The service was truly exceptional. I can't wait to come back.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMstill a great placeI needed a place that was near a hotel where my friends were staying and thought of Grillfish. I had been there several years ago and liked it very much so decided to try again. It was fabulous. The special of the evening, bronzino, was probably the best fish I have ever eaten. In addition, the vegetables (fresh peas and green beans) were grown on their farm in southern MD and were also fabulous. We had 2 deserts (key lime pie and creme brule cheescake) between the 4 of us and both were delicious. Highly recommend and will be back soon! Our server was Chris and he was just attentive enough, knew the details about every dish and made great recommendations. He clearly loves his job and is very good doing it.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMNo surprise, great fishThe reasonably priced salad special for lunch, scallops and shrimp, was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The atmosphere was so agreeable that a one hour lunch turned into two. Excellent service.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is an excellent restaurant.This is an excellent restaurant. Food and service are both top notch.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMixed GrillMy husband and I had dinner at Grillfish while on vacation in D.C., we ordered the mixed grill and the food was wonderful. Our waiter Chris was very attentive. Good food in D.C.!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGear food!We went for a birthday celebration, the hanger steak and mixed grill were to die for!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, but not as beforeFish was cooked just right and the mixed grill for two is still a pretty good meal. Not quite as good a deal as previously since portions are smaller and now only one side included rather than 2. Also, small salad no longer included. Still has one of the best banana splits around, with the kaluha and chocolate sauce. Wish that they chilled the bowl, though, since the ice cream melts too quickly even with the chocolate sauced served on the side5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth going out of your wayFood was excellent - sat in a nice corner on Sunday afternoon, had a wonderful conversation (did not have to shout to hear or be heard) and really enjoyed the experience. Service was also very good - attentive but not intrusive. I would definitely recommend it to friends and plan to go back. Although parking on the street was OK on Sunday, I imagine other days would be a problem.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Favorite Fish Place in the DCSimply, for two seafood-lovers, Grillfish is our "go-to" place to choose in the DC Area for a combination of very good food and service, wide selection, al fresco dining in season and moderate price. More than any other DC restaurant, we have brought guests from out of the area there for special occasion dinners. Highly recommended!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTop-notch seafood very good serviceMarket fresh seafood perfectly prepared.Dinner with a good friend; only thing we found lacking was the beer selection. They should add a few choices to the list. The meal was outstanding. Fish and mushroom chowder was flavorful and the kitchen allowed the taste of the mushroom and fish to shine by using a light hand with the cream. I had the arctic char, along with vegetables and a coconut/red curry dipping sauce. I did not make much use of the sauce, as the fish was great without it. My friend had seafood fra diavolo, for which he felt the missing component was grated parmesan - which the waiter brought quickly and with a smile. Desserts are definitely worth indulging. Service deserves special mention: attentive without being smothering.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMconsistent for yearsI loved this place when I lived in Boston and was happy to find they had some if the same classic dishes just as good as I remember!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent, serviceFood was excellent, service very good, took my family out on mother day and all was very well. Pay parking ok, and the roads has some construction.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinnerMy boyfriend and I came to Grillfish to celebrate our anniversary. We both love seafood restaurants (from raw to cooked), and Grillfish was the perfect choice. We shared the Mixed Grill for Two, and our fish was cooked to medium-raw perfection. The scallops were among the best I've ever had, and the dipping sauces were incredible--particularly the sweet onion. In fact, you could smell them preparing the sweet onion sauce from our seat across the restaurant from the kitchen, and it smelled fantastic . We paired this dinner with a nice shiraz (mojo rojo--pretty incredible) and finished it off with some dessert. Great spot for couples!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you like Calamari, I highIf you like Calamari, I high recommend that Ginger Calamari, it was fantastic!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat seafood and dessertWe had a delicious dinner at Grillfish. The food was amazing (I had rockfish and my husband had soft shell crab). We got the chocolate cake for dessert and it was incredible. Our waiter was really friendly, attentive, and did not rush us. We'll definitely be back.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent fishI grew up near the ocean and I'm pretty picky about fish. The food was excellent. It's a little loud for my taste but we will go back.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing French Toast! GoodAmazing French Toast!

Wonderful service in a relaxing atmosphere.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI went there with a voucherI went there with a voucher for their oyster brunch. The oysters were great, and the DIY mimosas as well (though it wasn't really DIY - the server did it for us!) The service really was great. However, my poached eggs were WAY over-cooked, they were border-line hard boiled. The rest of my dish was good though and my friends all really liked their food. I'd go back, just not sure if I'd get the crabcake benedict again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was exceptionallyThe service was exceptionally fast. I was surprised at the moderate cost for the amount of food we ordered.
