Amazing! Me and my wife were
Amazing! Me and my wife were celebrating our anniversary and couldnt have had a better dining experience. Our server was terrific,the food exquisite and the drinks were tasty. They gave us a fresh fruit platter with chocolate drizzled on the plate complimentary for our anniversary,totally unexpected and appreciated. My wife doesnt even eat fish but I had to swat her fingers away from my king crab and lobster. Dessert was truly delicious. I had rhubarb pie which is my favorite and it was divine. One of the best meals of our life! A bit pricey but totally worth it! Cant wait to go back.

Had a fantastic time. The food was excellent. My date is a pescatarian so she really appreciated the variety. I'm generally a "meat and potatoes" kind of guy, but the sole with fried capers I had was delicious. The oysters we had as appetizers were also fantastic.

The food was excellent but
The food was excellent but the wait staff interrupted us every two minutes with something. It got to the point that the waiter read us the menu to make sure we knew what we were ordering. The constant interruptions really ruined the meal.

Nice place overall to take clients.
Great little spot on the 3rd floor, food was excellent. Next time will try the downstairs section which has more of a fun bar atmosphere, if you are looking for a good fish spot in the city which I usually am this is the spot.

The upstairs space is so pleasant
The upstairs space is so pleasant and ethereal that it would be a great dining space without the well-crafted food and attentive service. Although it would be a great date spot for fish foodies, strangely, the several times I have been it has been for girls night out. It's the type of place where you can dine extremely well on plates of inventive appetizers and veggies complimented by spot-on wine by the glass choices (frequently a good restaurants' Achilles heel)and it has worked wonderfully in every instance.

BLT fish had great food and great drinks. The service was top notch. They catered extremely well to me, which is quite hard considering I am following a (boring) vegan diet. My fish was outstanding and they seemed to go through hoops for me. Everyone at our table was very happy. Thank you, BLT Fish.

The noise level gets a bit much especially as the evening wears on. The food was superb and service excellent.

Great People Great Food
Menu was explained. Choices were awesome. Preparation was beautiful. Taste was complex and distinctive. Noise was low... Diners were spaced through out the dining area. Service was attentive. I will return often.

Exceptional service. Limited
Exceptional service. Limited menu but delicious. Clean and meticulously maintained. Loved that the kitchen was out in the open. Part of the enjoyment was watching the food preparation.

Great food. Nice ambiance
I ate there twice in three days. Great both times...as long as you like really fresh oysters and seafood,

Great Dining Experience!
The food at this restaurant is outstanding. Everything was fresh and the service was excellent. Very attentive, helpful and friendly wait staff. We are definitely going there again and I highly recommend it.

A place to love
BLT Fish delighted my whole family, from a 61-year-old man down to a 19-year-old girl. The dishes were immaculately crafted from top-flight ingredients. The wine list was outstanding. Service was exceptional.

Fantastic dinner spot
Went to celebrate my birthday with a family member and we were wow'd by everything. We had a drink downstairs at the bar, which was great too (seemed like a fun but nice spot to go after work) but dinner upstairs was really fantastic - a truly special event.
5/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food but I am a bit over the huge-plate-small portion thing. It's a bit pretentious.
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Professional and Elegant
We have eaten in this restaurant several times and we always know that we will get great food, absolutely professional service in a terrific New York atmosphere. This last time we were entertaining someone from Dallas and he was truly impressed which is unusual for Texans. The shellfish appetizer was a dazzler. We also attended a wedding here and it was a wonderful, warm experience. We will surely return.
5/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had a lovely birthday celebration at the restaurant!
The food the service the place was wonderful! I would come back again and recommend the place.
The green apple cotton candy, and chocolate was a great extra touch.

I came here for a special occasion with my girlfriend and was not let down. The food was great and was not too heavy or salty, a big plus for a seafood restaurant. Service was also great and the staff was very helpful. Would definitely go back again!

A step up from most fish restaurant
Service was excellent . The staff was extremely attentive, offering an extra amuse bouche when they noticed how much we loved it. Great idea to include the recipe for those delicious biscuits. The special appetizer of crab stuffed squash blossoms is a keeper. The fish were beautifully cooked with a great combination of favors and textures. The plating of all the dishes was a pleasure to see.

Excellent Seafood Dinner
We were sat in the upper floor, which is a bit more formal than the lower. The upper floor is also much less noisy.
We started with some of their amazing cheese buiscuts, then a sampling of their oysters, which were lovely. Main courses and sides were decadent and interesting.

Wonderful food & service
We had a terrific dinner and wonderful service. The bench seating was a little too close to the table next to us, so probably not the best if you need to have a private conversation. Next time, I will ask for a different table. But I will definitely return!

This was just simply incredible and unforgettable. The food is to die for and the service is impeccable. It's definitely worth the price.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
BLT Fish is special. The main dining room is crisply designed, hardwood tables and banquettes. The fresh fish is great and the dishes are perfection. Fourht time there and I cannot wait to go again.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had been going here since it opened. In recent years it had gone downhill a bit. Now there is a new executive chef, a revamped menu and service. The food and service were stellar. Highly recommended.

Upstairs vs. Downstairs
This was my second visit to BLT Fish. There is such a disconnect between upstairs and downstairs - two totally differing dining experiences. Upstairs is elegant. Downstairs is more casual/clam bar-ish. Food is excellent at both. Shared both daily special "fish for two". Will be back soon.

Go for the Cheddar Bisquits
The fish was prefectly cooked and the presentations were beautiful and novel. Having eaten in other BLT restaurants I expected nothing less and was not disappointed. Every restaurant in the group seems to make the ordinary extraordinary.
The surprise of the evening was the Cheddar Bisquits which came hot from the oven. Along with the bisquits came the recipe, though I suspect they won't be as good at home.
Service was efficient and attentive, without being annoying.
We ate upstairs with the advertised view of the open kitchen, though we never looked.
Next time we'll try downstairs which we understand is more relaxed.

Food was excellent! Service
Food was excellent! Service was very good but could have been a little more attentative. The restaurant is very pretty, light, airy.

When we arrived we were greeted by an Indian waiter who was very nice but difficult to understand. He took our drink order. After we got our drinks, the Indian waiter disappeared and another waiter took our order. He was pretty strange and challenged everything we ordered. It was annoying. After that experience the Indian waiter returned. Food was good but the service needs improvement.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very enjoyable experience. The oysters were fantastic, as were the biscuits brought to the table. Entree portions were somewhat small- shared a fish for two that could have easily been for one.
Terrific service- very attentive.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent as usual
BLT Fish is consistently excellent. The food is fantastic and the service is very attentive without being disruptive. I have never had a disappointing experience at this restaurant and it continues to be one of my "go to" places for dinner with my wife and with clients.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent quality fish
Enjoyed our experience with BLT. Top notch seafood but be prepared to pay for your experience. The seafood tower (petite) for 65 was a bit pricey for the amount of food we got, half a lobster, 4 oysters, crab salad, salmon tartare and 2 mussels and 2 clams.

Let's cut to the chase--the fish. On the whole they were prepared very well, with creativity and care. Our only comment was that occasionally, flavors skewed on the savory side at the expense of more delicate notes. However, everyone was satisfied with their entrees and we loved the starters, especially the perfectly cooked octopus. Waitstaff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Recommended.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Only mild negative was that
Only mild negative was that although there were many free tables in the room, the host initially showed us to a table which had occupied tables on either side. When we requested another table, we were graciously given the table of our choice. Overall our experience there was wonderful.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for quiet business dinner
BLT Fish is a true hidden gem. The food is fabulous, the service is attentive and it isn't too noisy so you can have an actual conversation over dinner. They shower you with extra items from the kitchen which is always such a lovely surprise and a great conversation topic. I highly recommend.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Better than expected
We had had dinner downstairs the same week and were surprised to be shown upstairs and see a different menu!
The food was excellent. From the Manhattan clam showder to the very delicious dessert. Service from Maxwas very friendly and efficient.
If back in Manhattan will surely go back. Be warned...

One of the best fish restaurant
Been there several times and I always get a pleasant surprise with the outstanding service , nice addition on the menu and a great (though pricy) wine list.
Highly recommended .

Great service and great food.
Second time there was another great experience, went for a "date" night with the wife. The service is even better than the food. Definitely recommend it.

had not been in for a couple of years. BLT fish Exceeded My High Expectations Bottom to Top.

Very delicious, especially the creative sides. Pricey overall though when two women, who even split the first course can't dine for uder $225.

30th birthday dinner !
So a friend recommended this restaurant to me and I also asked around and got nothing but great reviews. My wife and I have 3 kids and hardly ever get to have a romantic dinner together, and BLT fish made it that much more special. I told told them before hand that it was her 30th birthday and they help me make it special for her. They sat us on the third floor right next to the kitchen, gave us complementary champagne and help us pick a great bottle of red wine from their amazing selection of wine and just catered to our every need. Plus all the food was amazing. We dined there for about 3.5 hours and just enjoyed each other's company. Can't wait to go back and make more great memories.

BLT Fish: Go PDQ
Went there with some foodie type friends and had a wonderful time. The attentive wait staff and great food are very enjoyable. My Halibut was the best I've ever had anywhere. They have novel ways of preparing their excellent quality, fresh fish. The prices are a little pricey, but the quality and gastronomic experience was worth the money!
