Great night out with my family here
While my husband, daughter and I went for dinner this time, I have also enjoyed many lunches here in the last 2-3 years. The restaurant has a great atmosphere, which is aided by large, private booths. The service is always good, with enthusiastic and knowledgeable servers. Most of all, the fish is fresh and delicious. I find it hard to change from my favorite dish (Salmon served "Shanghai style"), but my daughter's shrimp scampi was the best I have had in a long time and my husband's dish (cioppino?) was also great! I had a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, which was also notable...better than the average glass of wine. All in all, I am BIG FAN and will keep coming back.

Whenever I visit Mitchell's it is always a very good dining experience. Your Happy Hour menu is also wonderful when just looking for something quick and easy.

Very pleased with this visit
Very pleased with this visit - my wife and I visited this restaurant on a Sunday evening after going to a concert. When we first were seated, we ended up next to a table with a kid screaming but our waitress quickly helped us to change to more quiet table which was great. Service was excellent, we got some good recommendations around the food from our waitress. We had a couple of starters (Claim Casino and the Shrimp wrapped in bacon with BBQ sauce) which were excellent. Our main courses were very good, I had the surf & turf. I asked to have a side of Bearnaise sauce but they didn't have tarragon so had to go with Hollandaise sauce. My wife had the seafood platter which was excellent, especially the sea bass. We would definitely come back.

The waitress and manager were nothing less than spectacular! We thoroughly enjoyed the evening even with a small error in the kitchen.

We went to Mitchells for a nice dinner date. The food was delicious. I enjoyed the Alaskan King Crab legs, and my date enjoyed the surf and turg. We started with oysters and crab/artichoke dip. All was cooked to perfection. The only downside to our evening there was the service. Our waiter was MIA at the beginning, so it took awhile to get our drink orders in. When he brought the drinks, he asked if we were ready to order. We said we needed another minute or two....he disappeared for about 10 or 12 minutes. Literally no where to be seen, so we couldn't even flag him down. He didnt check on how our food was either once we got it. However, despite the lack of service, the food was great and it was moderately priced for seafood.

We were pleasantly surprised to find that this chain had good quality fish. The salad and bread were also really great and the desserts were special as well- giant carrot cake!

Great Mother's Day lunch
Lunch was great. Our server, Tracy, was very helpful and gave great service. Mom had a wonderful special lunch. I highly recommend Mitchell's Fish Market

Mitchells - A cCnsistent Choice
We have been going to Mitchells about 2 to 3 times per year since it opened in STC. From the first visit to the most recent, they are about as consistent as can be and that consistency is very good food, very good service, and very good overall experience. Their sourdough bread is the best I have ever tasted. Fish is fresh and the plethora of preparations can satisfy anyone's palate. I particularly like the cedar plank prep. Desserts -- OMG -- to die for. Their Carrot cake and Sharkfin pies are scrumptious and enough to feed an entire table of four. And the key lime pie --tart and creamy -- just like it should be. Mitchells is NOT inexpensive. Prices on seafood are a little high. But the quality and overall service are worth a few extra $.

We originally had a party of 12 and added four when we arrived. They quickly changed our location and accoodated the additional diners. The service was very professional and efficient and the kitchen did a great job getting everything out together.
6/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
When we were offered the specials, the prices were not stated. The sea bass dinner was ordered. We were surprised at the $31. Price and would never have ordered a meal that was that expensive. We were not given a printed menu with the special offerings and prices.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
An outstanding dining experience. Our server was experienced and knowledgeable and her recommendations were excellent. We will definitely return.

We were traveling when we
We were traveling when we saw this restaurant listed in a brochure from the Marriott hotel in Stamford, CT. We liked what we saw on their website, but did not expect too much because it was a "chain." What a pleasant surprise! The cocktails were perfect, the service was great, the house salad was unique and tasty, and the lobster was the best we've had in years. We enjoyed it so much that we ate there again on our second night in Stamford, because we checked their web site and found the chain had no restuarants in our area of the country yet. I gues we learned that a chain restuarant chin that is a spin off from Ruth's Chris Steak House is not just another chain.

Very good seafood at good prices
Had the three course special . Soup or salad, lobster or king crab entree, side dish of redskin mashed and asparaga, plus dessert all for 29.99'. Quality and portions sizes where very good. They also have many kinds of fresh fish prepared six different ways ( your choice of prep). Prices are very reasonable for high quality fresh seafood, Service was very friendly , professional and accommodating. I will definitely return again. Note the three course special mentioned above runs thru Labor Day,

Nice restaurant, yummy food,
Nice restaurant, yummy food, great location... My waiter was hurried, forgetful and not totally with it that night. He greeted us and flat-out said he was very busy (a NO-NO for any business...especially when your restaurant is half empty), ran off, came back, spilled each drink on the table as he poured it it into our glass, told us he was getting bread but never came back with it, etc... We just shook our heads and moved along.

Great place for Sunday lunch
We had the whole family for Sunday lunch. Everyone enjoyed their lunch - the food and service were great. Could not ask for more!

Nice place to celebrate
Restaurant was a great choice for birthday celebration. They were very accommodating of our special requests. Food was great and our Waiter Andy was soon nice I would come back just because of him. He made us all feel like it was our special night.
Thank you for a great night.

Comfortable and Delicious
Celebrated our adult son's birthday and received wonderful hospitality, food and service. The fish was outstanding and beautifully presented. The wait staff was exceptionally courteous and friendly.

Our Dining Experience
We are from out of town and were staying staying in Stamford for the weekend. We wanted a fish restaurant that served a good selection of fresh fish entrees and were not disappointed. We sat outside since the night was warm and we had a lovely dining experience! The fish was delicious. The wait staff very attentive. We would return again the next time we are in the area.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my 5th time to this establishment and as always the service was prompt, attentive and friendly.
I ordered Shrimp scampi, it was good but could have been better. I couldn't taste the garlic and butter. My dining mate enjoyed her meal immensely.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
There's little you can do
There's little you can do to fresh seafood to ruin it other than overcook. So most seafood restaurants serve up good fresh fish, with options of a few sauces. Mitchells has those, but also a great spicy shrimp appetizer, clam chowder that is mostly clams with a few potatoes, a 'trio' of salmon, tilapia and scallops, each cooked in a different way. Spinach salad with apples and gorgonzola was good, as was a special mojito. Would like to try their calamari next time around.
We went early, so the tables were just beginning to fill. It could get noisy once more people came.

Fish lovers find
The best thing about the menu is all the dishes can be prepared in 4 different ways. You choose your fish and how it is prepared and that's unique . Portions are reasonable but appetizers and salad should be added if your hungry . The bread is hot and delicious and dessert great ending. Excellent service and really nice atmosphere.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Did not have extremely high expectations for this seafood chain, but we were very pleasantly surprised. Food was extremely good and a pleasant place to eat dinner. Reasonable prices too.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, okay service
Nice cocktails, good wine selection and appetizers, great seafood entrees and dessert. The grilled swordfish was wonderful.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Did not disappoint
Nice job Mitchells! I had the twin lobster tails - meaty, tasty and tender for sure. The crab cake appetizer was very good - full of really good crab and served hot. My wife had filet mignon - surprisingly good for a seafood restaurant. Her cold shrimp appetizer is as good as any we've had before.
Couple all this with a very reasonable price, we'll be back again

Greeted and seated immediatly. Waitress was prompt and asked all the right questions (drinks, bread water, etc.?)
Specials were attractive and the menu has many pleasing selections and combinations of fish, shelfish and non fish dishes.
Service was attentive but not rushed. A good experience. The Stamford Mitchell's is at the Stamford mall--very convenient and a lively group of restaurants.

Good food, slow service
When my husband and I visited the other night there was only one server on the floor, two hours before closing. This poor girl was responsible for tables in three different sections of the establishment including a loud, large, demanding group outside on the patio. There were at least two other servers in the place and the manager but they spent most of their time chatting with the bartender. I had to ask the bartender for a refill on my water glass after giving up hope that the patio group would let our server slip from their grasp long enough for me to catch her attention, did the manager comment or apologize? Nope not a peep. The food was amazing, and the deserts comfortably feed four. I will give a second chance, but not a third.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
brought a client and his wife. both of them enjoyed the restaurant. Food and service were excellent
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good, reliable venue
This is our go to place to meet our CT friends as we live in NY. It's a great half-way point. The food is tasty, the menu diverse. Everyone always seems to be able to pick something from the varied menu, and the food is consistently tasty.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM

This was the first time there .I went because of the special on the twin lobster tails and they were out of this world. Excellent

friendly servers. excellent food. large portions. plenty of room at tables. large menu.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wish we lived closer!
Our meal was great and the service was terrific. 3 in our group had the twin lobster tails. I had the Mahi and it was served perfectly. Our waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable, with tips about the menu. If not for the fact that we live in Norwalk, we would be there more often. Very nice, upscale bar. We did not have time to stop in, but large, nicely decorated and quiet.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellent food and service, I would definitely recommend to even the most picky friends

I have been coming here a lot and am never disappointed. Consistlently very good.

For us this is a drive, but always great place to meet friends and family . Food always great - nice to able to choose how your fish is prepared. Friendly and attentive staff.

Great location in central Stamford business district. Quiet and efficient at lunchtime. Ideal for a business lunch.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
started with shrimp and tuna appetizer which were wonderful. then maine lobster tail with seafood cobb salad (for $19 which I thought was extremely reasonable for such a nice restaurant and great food). Delicious brownie icecream cake dessert. Looking forward to returning. Beautiful interior with one wall a map of Long Island sound and another HUGE picture of ship Normande.Valet parking available too, which can add to a special occasion instead of walking to mall parking lot.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good quality for lunch
This is a very inviting restaurants. I liked the option of being seated in the bar-area (noisier) or when you want a quiter seeeting in the formal restaurant-part. The Seafood was great, the steak was good. Salad was only o.k. - the seemingly easiest part was the least good but still o.k. Service was good, knowledgeable and friendly. Gof plae to eat, not cheap but good quality for the money.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, nice ambiance
We were into fish and we had nothing but raves when my wife and I had a great selection to chose from. The wait staff was attentive and the decor was divine. Definitely worth repeating.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice accent to our day!
We were dressed for the theater- so we wanted a place a little upscale but not a place that would break our already broken wallet from our holiday shopping spree. We loved all the wood, the lamp shades and accent pieces on the wall- a very inviting decor. We ate our lunch at the bar and the wait staff there could talk wine and had a great sense of humor. They kept our glasses filled and continually made sure we had all we needed without crowding us. The food was excellent, my husband had the Chilean sea bass and I had the lobster tail- it was very, very good! We talk about our next venture to Stamford, and it definitely included a stop at Mitchell's.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Mitchell's Fish Market offered a fixed price, traditional Thanksgiving Dinner as well as their regular menu. The 3-course menu included turkey with all the fixings and was definitely a good value. Those who preferred an alternative to turkey were pleased with the extensive range of options. The wait staff was very attentive but not intrusive. It was a very positive dining experience for our small family.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
client lunch for 20 was effortless
I engaged a table to 20 to host a holiday luncheon sight unseen and the staff put us in a private room and were professional. Just what I wanted, but hadn't asked for. Nice work Mitchell's.
