Our experience at Coolfish was excellent. The Chliean Sae Bass and Blackened Swordfish were particuparly outstanding. Our server was friendly and helpful without being overbearing.

we were seated immediately
we were seated immediately & courteously. Women who took coat was warm and welcomeing. I had requested thru open table that i did not want a table in the back by the wall and unfortuneately, that is exactly where she seated us. I advised I was not happy & she offered a smaller less desireable one. Food was good and wait staff was lovely & accommodating. Nice, dimly lit atmosphere.
Would def. go back again.

Went with 6 co-workers, all
Went with 6 co-workers, all from out of town. Greeted at the door with a friendly smile and escorted right to our table. Sevice was excelent as were the wine and food reccomendations. We ask for seperate checks and were accomdated so. I ordered the Sea Bass and it has ruined me. It was sooo good, while ther are other things on the meneu I want to try, I am afraid I will always order the Sea Bass as it was just so good. All in our party agreed it was the best meal we had eaten since arriving in New York. Yes we will return, and when you go - leave room for dessert!

Delicious, upscale food, but not pretentious. It has an older, more mature crowd and is not too loud. Great job, great food and great place!

Fish was Perfection
Went with 2 other couples. The fish was cooked to perfection. I mean perfection. Not dry, not raw, moist through and through, over a beautiful side. How do they do that in such a busy restaurant? Great sauces, beautiful appetizers, great salads. Just wonderful.

Special on LI
An outstanding restaurant. The food and service are great and the atmosphere and ambiance are as well. Feels like Manhattan without having a long drive to get there. This is on our favorites list.

I had an Atlantic salmon dish
I had an Atlantic salmon dish that was excellent and a Caesar salad that was one of the best I've had in recent memory. My party chose this restaturant as part of LI restaurant week and were not dissapointed.

A Cool Evening
I always love Coolfish. Everything was superb. I did not like the couple sitting next to us with the kid. The kid was
fine really, but the mother was on the cell phone for the entire evening and the kid was looking to me for sympathy.
I'll return to Coolfish. Hopefully, I'll get a better table next time.

First visit to CoolFish and
First visit to CoolFish and will return. They honored my reservation on a very busy night. Everyone's food was excellent and cooked perfectly. We sat in the lounge area which had live music. It got a little loud at times. There is also a dining area away from the lounge.

It was one of the best restaurant week restaurants I've been to. Food was excellent, nice choices too. The chocolate teepee dessert was outstanding! Very pretty restaurant.
The only two complaints are, one, they never refilled the water glasses, and two, the online menu did not indicate that there was an extra $10 surcharge for the Chilean sea bass. Having the sea bass on the online menu was one of the reasons I went there.

Nice Local Place
We went on a Friday evening, it was packed. The hostess tried to seat us right next to the bar & the one man band. We asked to wait for a better table. After 10 minutes they seated us in the back which was a lot nicer. The waitress was definitely working very hard & neglected to bring a bread basket to the table after several requests. The menu was extensive and everyone was very satisfied with their selections.
We will go back again soon.
5/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, Noisy.
The food was outstanding. It was Friday night and crowded when we dined there but this did not effect the timeliness of courtesy of the service. There was apparently live music in the bar area, but we could not appreciate it over the din! I would wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant.

A Must Eat
It's simple: the food is amazing, the service is professional and well managed and the decor is "just right" for most people. My girl and I love this place for date-night and her mom told us that her dish was "one of the best" she has ever had. Check out Coolfish!!!
5/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
You can always count on Coolfish for consistently good food, in creative combinations. It's our "go-to" seafood place, desbite our living much closer to many others.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Been a fan of Coolfish since it opened. Wonderful food, atmosphere and service. recommend to everyone.
5/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
who would have thought
the service here is a little slow, but well worth it.
This is a small, cute little spot that doesnt even look like a restaurant from the outside, ( i wouldnt have known it was there if it wasnt for the sign on the corner of michael drive and jericho tnpk in syosset. :-))
The food is yum. Were looking foward to going back.
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
we always have a great meal at Coolfish; very gourmet, beautiful environment, terrific specials and oh, love the weekly wine picks!! Had the 2lb poached lobster that was outstanding and huge in portion. Mom had the swordfish which she said was the best she has ever had. wonderful experience all around!

Food for foodies + live music
Oyster apps were fresh out of the ocean. Even the bread and whipped butter you can tell we're prepared with care. Star of dinner was the Chilean seabass with lobster chucks in the reduction and a smoky tomato paste topping. Yum! Hubby had the tempura soft shell crab. Though it was good and not too greasy, I would've preferred more crunch texture (Panko maybe) in the batter. Great drinks and music. Great find and we'll be back for sure

great menu. we had a great waitress. the special wine-by-the-glass options were much better than expected. the shrimp ceviche fell short.

Lunch at Coolfish
This was my first time at Coolfish, but it certainly won't be my last. I saw their ad for the prix fixe lunch in Newsday, and was pleased the menu had so many wonderful options. My friends were very impressed as well. Thanks for a great afternoon.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Price fixed is price broken
The food, atmosphere and service was very good. However, the pricing is deceitful! Before making a reservation we checked the menu on line. The price fixed dinner was listed as $20.12 per person. At the restaurant the price fixed dinner was $29.95. When alerting the waitress about this we were told many people have brought this to their attention but still their website continues to show the lower price. Also, when ordering a martini which was priced at $13.00, our check showed $16.25! Cool Fish is not too cool!

Never disappointed by Coolfish. Some change in ownership is not noticeable and the food remains great with a pleasant atmosphere. Don't want to let others know - keep it to myself and friends. Recommend Coolfish highly

An Enjoyable Evening
A group of six of us recently ate at The Coolfish Grill. Four had the Chilean Sea Bass and two had the Sliced Angus Sirloin. All the meals were tasty and well-presented. The drinks were somewhat pricey, but good. Similarly we enjoyed the cheesecake, the Chocolate Teepee and the Sorbet. The only negative feature was that the service was a bit slow and it was sometimes difficult to attract a waiter. However, overall it was an enjoyable evening.

Lunch was perfect
The salads we ordered were perfect for a 100 degree day. It was quiet and my friend and and I were able to sit for quite awhile. It was a Friday during the heat wave so not very.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been to Coolfish many times. Nice bar, good wine, always delicious fruit infused vodka. The tilefish special was absolutely delicious and the apple strudel was memorable. It's not a scenic location but the food is worth going.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Some of the most flavorful food!
Everything we ordered was incredibly flavorful and fresh--just delicious.

Cool Fish is consistently excellent. This was probably my 5th or 6th time there and each time, both the food and service were rock solid.

Great date night for the girls
We went to Cool Fish on a Tuesday Night to celebrate our friends 'big" birthday. We were surprised to see two special menus in addition to the regular menu. One menu read"Tuesday Date Night Menu" For $50 you and your "date " were entitled to an appetizer, two entrees and a dessert. All big enough to share. The food was delicious ,especially the mussels and the cappucino gelato . The staff was friendly and accomodating. A great dining experience.

Service was excellent as was
Service was excellent as was our food. Menu choices were also quite interesting particularly for LI.
Although the industrial park setting and the entrance to restaurant are somewhat questionable the team and brick walls manage to provide a very comfortable restaurant

Very convenient meeting place between Long Island and ct or westchester. Food is great. Service is always with a smile.

Cool Fish Dinner
Outstanding on all levels - Expensive but worth every penny - a MUST for seafood lovers
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our first time at Coolfish will not be our last. The food was excellent. Restaurant week lured us in. The menu is pricey but as it turns out, well worth it. We'll be back even without a special menu.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Always a treat
We have been to Cool Fish on several occasions. This time my husband and I went for restaurant week. The food is always great and we never leave dissatisfied. The Chilean Sea Bass was awesome. Seasoned just right. I will always recommend this spot for a relaxing dinner. We usually go early before the crowd - between 6:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. Never feel rushed.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was terrific and the service was attentive.
We'd definately go back!

The fish we ordered was outstanding. Service was a little slow, but it was restaurant week. Wouldn't hold that against them. The wine selections were in point. Would definately recommend this restaurant. We can't wait to go back!

We were four on Saturday and all of us enjoyed our meals and the service was very attentive. We have eaten here a number of times and will be back again.

Cool Fish is THE place!
I loved the atmosphere of the dining room. Quiet enough for a romantic date night but not too loud that you have to shout over other conversations. The waitress was attentive but not intrusive. When I did not care for the fancy cocktail I ordered, she replaced it immediately with a new drink, no questions asked. I had the Chilean sea bass and it was delightful. The tuna tar tar appetizer was delicious and my husband raved about the shrimp dish. We loved everything so much we ordered dessert. The creme brûlée and gelato choices did not disappoint. Overall, a wonderful date night out!

Coolfish is fabulous! The food was extraordinary. All the service people were very attentive and friendly. A wonderful evening was had by all. Thank you! Karen Fishkin
