Very good seafood
Fresh, well prepared seafood in a pleasant atmosphere. Definitely one of the best dining choices in the area. Also had a great jazz trio playing in the bar area on Sat night.

Father's Day Dinner
What a great place to dine. Seafood menu is diverse and food quality was superb. The seats were comfortable and although the restaurant was full, it was not too noisy which is rare. Friendly and prompt service as well.

Second time visiting this restaurant. Not from the area, but when we visit my sister we love having a meal here. The food is excellent. The atmosphere nice. Yet prices are resonable. We'll be back.

This was our first time at Fish after trying many places in the area over the past two years. W wish we had discovered Fish sooner and we are sure to return again in our time remaining in the area. The food was excellent. Many others commented that the portions were small but I could not finish the piece of tuna I ordered. The wine recommendation was spot on and the manager brought us each a complimentary glass of a dessert sherry that was excellent. It was more expensive than other places in the area but worth the extra money. We will return.

The food and service were quite good. We particularly enjoyed the Sunday special on the oyster bar and the lobster was perfect. I will definitely come back. As an added bonus, I could even eat their french fries since they were *not* using soybean ("vegetable") oil.

New local gem!
This restaurant impressed us! Our Baked Haddock Filet served over butternut squash puree with Broccolini was delicious. We also enjoyed the mixed green salad with champagne vinaigrette. The wine list was extensive as was the beer selection. The service was perfect. We will definitely be going back!

A pleasant surprise
After going to Fish when they first opened we were disappointed in the food. We agreed to try it again and found a pleasant surprise in both the presentation of the food and the quality of the food. The scallops and halibut were very flavorful as well as the vanilla crème Brule. I would recommend Fish Restaurant to anyone that enjoy good food and atmosphere.

Delicious fish chowder
Loved the fish chowder!!!! Excellent restaurant. We went for lunch and has an enjoyable time. Ordered the haddock with butternut squash and it was amazing. Dessert was the pecan caramel nut torte with vanilla ice cream and the lemon mousse cake. Both were stupendous and worth the calories!
7/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
Superb fish selections
The swordfish and sesame crusted tuna we had were excellent. The salad we shared was terrific, also. Our waiter was very attentive.
We had a child in our party and he enjoyed drawing all over the table cover.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
sat at bar. lively spot with great staff and good food. will definitely come again when in the area.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had fresh oysters and grilled octopus - both delish! Family had twin lobsters, sea bass special and rib eye steak. Everything was perfect. Had to skip dessert due to being over stuffed!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wow! Awesome time
Went here for a special occasion. Amazed at the food, service and ambiance. The jazz band was phenomenal.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
You will love FISH!
The food here is just wonderful, good range of options, different touches, nicely presented. There is also an excellent wine list with many good choices offered by the glass.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellent service and food;
excellent service and food; did not need a "kid menu" & didn't see one, but wait person was very kind to our 14 year old daughter and offered to replace the sauces on the scallops dish with french fries....so "teen friendly".
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was with 2 other ladies, and the service, wine and food was outstanding!!!! I am a fish and wine lover and your restaurant fulfilled my passion. I will be back.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
FISH -A great place to dine!
As always, the service and food was top-notch. When we need some great seafood, FISH is the place to go.
There was an excellent Jazz trio playing in the background and the atmosphere is very casual and inviting.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great quality, service and ambiance
Excellent food preparation, service, and ambiance combine to make this a special spot in Metrowest Boston. All of our dishes were expertly prepared, including a swordfish "chop" that melted in the mouth. Will definitely return for a second helping.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We eat here every couple of months. It is consistently excellent. The decor is comfortable, but it is the food that brings us back consistently. We went with some friends this time; they had not been there before. They were equally impressed and were talking about the next we would return. Sasha, the chef, is young but creative and very personable. He is clearly interested in making his customers happy. This is truly a neighborhood gem.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food but average service
The food and wine list were fantastic but the service was a bit lackluster... Nothing was wrong, perse, but the experience was lacking.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect evening dining
Amazing food, service was beyond hospitable, and the wines were varied and unique. Not formal, but elegant and happy. I've been here 4 times and have never been disappointed by anything.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
They never fail!
"Fish" or as we last knew it to be called "Coral Sea Food" never disappoints! For me I love fresh raw seafood, and they deliver! My husband likes cooked fish. For the the very first time I had a drink named the Black Velvet , which was amazing, It is made from hibiscus!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing to find a restaurant
Amazing to find a restaurant this good in Marlborough. The food was fine, although a bit pricy. The live jazz duo was world class.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I hosted a business dinner at Fish for about 8 people, all of them well traveled and with sophisticated tastes. The food was excellent. The presentation was perfect. The portions were generous without being vulgar. Tasty appetizers, great oysters, good wines, etc.. Everyone enjoyed their meals and we had a great time. All thumbs up. Thank you!
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
"Fish" doesn't disappoint
We ate at Fish for the third time this past weekend, and everything from appetizers through the entre selections was superb. The special Halibut was beautifully prepared on a bed of grits and roasted asparagus. One person had swordfish shoulder chop (which none of us had heard of before), which we all tasted and found both tender and exceptionally flavorful. The wine selections are always good, but the waiter was a little too eager to push the "wine paring" for the halibut. That small complaint aside, we'[ll definitely be back!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely decor and beautiful interior and food presentation. Great beer on draught! The service was somewhat slow for 3 pm on a Sat., but it was very friendly and warm; our waiter was great. The food could have been top notch (again, presentation was lovely), but for two oddities: my broccolini, and jumbo shrimp, were both a bit overcooked, and our ceasar salads had grated, vs. shaved or even shredded, parmesan cheese (a "no-no" for any restaurant IMO, let alone an upscale one).
These minor disappointments were overshadowed by incredibly reasonably priced menu offerings, very good flavors and menu options, and outstanding freshly baked bread that comes with your meals. We will definitely be there again.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect lunch experience
Grabbed a quick but highly satisfying lunch. Grilled octopus appetizer is delicious and very unique. Salads fish and crab cakes all well done. Best seafood restaurant in area and reasonably priced. Can't miss at Fish!

Best seafood in the area
Our office team went to lunch at Fish yesterday to celebrate a co-worker's birthday. I'm always looking for opportunities to order seafood because there just aren't a lot of those types of restaurants in the area and most of them aren't that great. The scallops I had were excellent - very fresh and cooked perfectly. All 9 of us loved our lunches too. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful - always refilling drinks, offering suggestions and apologizing for items that were not available. The furnishings, especially the bar area, are gorgeous - I would like to come at night for a romantic dinner. I'm sure our office will be back again. Thank you!
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great meal & service
The food was quite good. The server was far more articulate about the food (combinations of flavors, textures) than I'm used to. Delightful dining experience.

Anniversary to Remember
Perfect location. We were the first ones to arrive. The atmosphere was perfect, very relaxed. The waiter was extremely friendly and helpful with the food menu and wine list. Checking on us occasionally to insure our experience was enjoyable. The Mediterranean Fish Soup was out of this world. For our wedding anniversary we couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate. We enjoyed our experience at Fish!! We truly plan on returning!!
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant was excellent. The menu might look just ok on first glance, but interesting ingredients and presentation. Good wine selection. Open Table was super easy to use for making reservation - took 2 minutes.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great, service was
Food was great, service was even better. We enjoyed the selected wine (very last bottle they had of our choice) as well as the second bottle recommended by the manager. Very much appreciated his multiple stops at our table to see how things were going and his attention to his customers in general.

Enjoyable birthday dinner
Three in our party for a birthday. It was a very nice evening. We were seated promptly and someone almost immediately came to the table with water and bread. Our server came to ask about drinks, We were looking for a dry chardonnay and our server brought us a couple of sample glasses to try before we ordered. This was very helpful and we enjoyed the wine that we picked.
We ordered all salads and seafood entries. The champagne vinegrette on the mixed greens was delicious. My tuna was perfectly cooked and the very tasty with the vegetables. My wife's swordfish was cooked just a bit too much, but the flavor was fine as was the salsa verde that topped it. The third member of our party very much enjoyed the roasted salmon and vegies.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great date spot
Had a great evening at Fish. There was a trio playing in the bar. It was great background music,but not too loud that you couldn't talk. I had the haddock and the other person in my party had the scallops. Both were outstanding. Prices are reasonable too. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Best restaurant west of 128
Wow...who would have thought such a great restaurant would be located in Marlboro? Fish restaurant and wine bar has THE best dining west of 128. It's such a pleasure to have quality cooking and great wine in the metrowest area. I've been so enthralled with the place, that I've returned three times in four weeks. You just can't go wrong at this place. Ian (the manager) knows his wine and he is totally unpretentious and always willing to help. The service is great, and the jazz music is a real treat. This place is a real gem in the rough.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was good and well prepared. We were pleased to find out that on Sundays they do $1 oysters. The dessert was not overly impressive.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Informal "New York supper club."
Didn't expect much from a place in Marlboro but we'd seen jazz group "Never say Never" elsewhere, wanted to hear them again. Large restaurant clearly designed with care. China, silver, glassware indicate real taste and thought. Huge selection of fresh seafood at the door recalls bistros in Rome. Very warm welcomes from the lady at the door, smart friendly very knowledgeable waitstaff, sommelier could easily work 21 or Patroon in NYC. Martinis perfect, wine was a French white we had never tried but loved. Oysters fresh and good, delicious clam chowder, swordfish white moist and perfect, vegetables unusual, delicately done.
And "Never Say Never" was better than we remembered! Lovely singer and a saxophonist that alone were worth the trip.

New Chef improves existing menu
We are enjoying the food at Fish and find improvements in existing menu and have enjoyed some of the specials especially the swordfish Chop!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great First Impression
I keep saying "amazing" to describe our experience at Fish, and it's starting to sound redundant, but there's not another word to describe it. My only negative was when I chose the scallops over the special, which was bass. The scallops were so good, but the special was crazy good!! If we could make this an everyday restaurant we would.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
First Timer - Loved It!
We are always looking for new restaurants and happened to stumble upon Fish. The décor was modern and very comfortable. I had the haddock and my boyfriend had the tuna and we both totally enjoyed our meals. Drinks were also great. We will definitely be back when we are in the area.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Yummy food, Great service, Jazz Bar
Went to Fish for a family reunion. Folks came from Cape Cod, Boston, VT.
So pleasantly surprised by the decor, the service, the menu, the bar. Live jazz music coming from the bar was just right.
There were 12 of us and we all felt like we left with the perfect meal.
We will absolutely go back!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I came here with colleagues from the Mid West. Everything was just perfect. All the food was amazingly fresh and lovingly prepared. We will certainly be returning.

varied menu, group of 4. everyone
varied menu, group of 4. everyone satisfied. some standard fare some interesting combos. do not be afraid to try something new.
fish mousse was tasty. scallops were smoky. salmon slightly overdone for this sushi lover.
some round booths, though not too comfy, offered a really good amount of privacy.

Expect extraordinary flavor
Lively bar, with fire and jazz band. Impressive wine list ranging in price from 10-15 dollars per glass. Bar selections included exciting seasonal creations such as the Pear Haiku.The menu itself featured some eclectic and traditional fish dishes. I chose the oatmeal encrusted haddock with crumb topping on a bed of pureed butternut squash. My husband had grilled swordfish served on whipped potatoes with an olive tapenade on top. He ordered chowder and I had a tossed salad for appetizers, which came with a delicious basket of warm,fresh bread. Every bite, of every item served literally burst end with flavors. Each meal ranged from $20-28. Portions were perfect, not giant, and artfully presented.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love that fried fish!
Finding myself with plenty of time for a special lunch while in Marlborough, I decided to try Fish. I'd heard good things about it, and a quick check of OpenTable reviews showed lots of praise, so my date and I joined the dozen or so other diners in the bright, open dining room on a Tuesday. Tall, frosty glasses of beer on tap, a crab cake or two - excellent, but they don't need the oil drizzle on the plate - a bowl of somewhat unremarkable chowder, and we were ready for the main event. Grilled swordfish - meaty but tender, tasty and perfectly cooked. Outstanding. My Fried Seafood Platter with haddock, shrimp, scallops and clams featured sweet, succulent seafood fried in the appropriate batter for each. Scott gave us impeccable service.
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
A "Boston" restaurant!
Dining at Fish has the feel of dining in a higher end Boston restaurant without needing to drive into Boston! The ambiance and quality of food are spot on. The band that performed Saturday night in the wine bar provided just the right combination of background music for diners as well as an upbeat venue for those who appreciate great blues and jazz. We will be back!
