A delightful evening was given
A delightful evening was given to us and our friends. The food was very good - we ate every scrap - and the portions were appropriate. For her first night on the job, our waitress, Donna, did a great job.
We have been before, twice I think, and will come again!

I made a reservation for 2 people when I went to the fish house.
It was for our 1 year anniversary with my girlfriend. I especially liked the special request which you can do. Not only that the fish house also provided free desserts due to the special occassion. It was a great experience overall and I would highly recommend it to others

Busy night at The Fish House,
Busy night at The Fish House, but some of the specials were ordered at our table, and they were all excellent. As usual, seafood was tasty and well prepared. Would like the decor to be a little nicer, but we come back for the food.

Went on Good Friday, so a very busy house and they were able to serve very quickly, never felt rushed or delayed, but it was a fairly quick meal. They were dealing with some big tables at the same time.Would say that while the food style and cooking doesn't go outside the box, menu is big, food seemed fresh and dependable, so no one is likely to be disappointed.

What an enjoyable experience
What an enjoyable experience for my family - 2 adults, 1 senior, a 4 yr old and a baby. There was an impressive selection of food that was well-prepared and tasty. Staff was helpful, attentive and efficient. They provided crafts and colouring for my 4 yr old, which was very helpful. Overall, a great experience!

Trevor was our waitor and was great. One person in our party thought the portions could have been larger. The fish was great as always.

A very pleasant evening. The fish was very well prepared and there was lots to choose from on the menu. Noise levels a little high for us, but otherwise, good service and reasonable prices.

Really enjoyed our dinner.
Eight of us had dinner at the Fish House, and it has been a while since we have been there. We are glad we went back as, although the decor is a bit tired, the food was excellent and the service was great.
Also, because the tables aren't packed in beside each other and loud music isn't playing in the background, we could actually have a conversation without having to yell at each other.

The fish was excellent, well
The fish was excellent, well prepared and moist. We all had fish. Vegetables were nicely cooked and seasoned. Creme brulee was too heavy. Need a lighter recipe. Noise level lower and better than Sheppard Ave. site. Service not fast but not rushed so met our needs. Washrooms clean and bright.
We will be back again.

Creative Fish Cuisine
A great fish restaurant. Menu is expansive and house specialties are creative and exceptionally delicious. Wait staff are friendly and reservations on-line work very well.

I thought it was extremely
I thought it was extremely nice that I wispered to the hostess thinking it was our waiter that it was my mom's birthday that day. As we sat down I couldnt tell the waiter. The hostess however had passed on the info to him and a cake with a candle it was a nice touch thank you!
5/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wow all I can say is what a selection of fresh fish and unlimited ways you can have it prepared and cooked.
The menu is constantly changing so there is always an excuse to go back...

An absolutely great evening!
It was my husband's 70th birthday and the family treated him to dinner at the Fish House because, being from an island, Fish is his favourite food. The service was great, the dinner choices were even greater --- we had a surprise birthday cake for him and our waiter (unfortunately I can't remember his name) was excellent and organized the whole birthday cake and candles, etc. very well.
The choices are great and the service time is very good too. You don't have to sit and wait and wait. We are certainly very confident to recommend your restaurant to our friends. The fact that you even have "non fish" dishes is a very good mix because for e.g. my younger son does not eate fish but loved the lobster brisk and the burger!

An always excellent experience
I live in downtown Toronto and the Fish House downtown was a regular destination. Now located in Markham it's about a 30-minute drive to get there. Bonus, parking is free. Real bonus is a wide selection of fresh, fresh food for the fish lover. I love the planked salmon and a cup of the lobster bisque is marvellous. Wine list is fine, the service quick, friendly, helpful.

The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. The waiter even had the chef change one of my wife's dishes to suit her taste buds. We have been at the Fish House before and every time it has been a great experience.

Good food, good selection
Good selection of seafood available, good healthy options and accommodating for specific requests. Waiter was friendly and provided good recommendations and opinions on what was good and populate on the menu. Made reservations but came over an hour early on Father's day and they were able to accommodate for our change in time without any problems. Good restaurant to take my parents who are more health conscious.

We have eaten at the Fish
We have eaten at the Fish House many times and have even held a private function in thier party room. On every occasion we have found the staff friendly and very accomodating to special requests. The largest part of their menu is devoted to fish and seafood; they also offer meat, chicken and pizza dishes for those who wish that type of meal. The food is always prepared well and very tasty. Because we do not imbibe, I am unable to comment on their wine and alcohol beverages, although we have noticed that their bar is usually very well attended. The prices are reasonable and there is often specials being offered.

Casual, Friendly, Fresh Fish!
There's nothing remarkable about either the exterior or the interior of The Fish House. Remarkable is what happens in the kitchen. They simply serve fresh fish, but always perfectly prepared.
Each month's menu carries a list of (usually) about twelve different kinds of fresh fish. Any of these can be prepared to your liking in one of eight ways, with two sizes available. More adventurous? There's an assortment of crusted fish specialties, and some shellfish dishes -- including fresh oysters. Dinners come with 2 sides and I always love the steamed baby spinach and sweet potato mash.
From start (decent salad at reasonable price) to finish (very good coffee), everything always tastes great. Nothing fancy or chichi, just great food.

I am not a seafood lover so when my husband and friends decided on the FISH House I was hesitant but agreed. To my surprise it was fantastic. I had Lobster Ravioli from a seafood specials menu and it was awesome. We had crab cakes as a starter and they were so good I was willing to try the lobster, thank goodness I did. Our server was very attentive but not overwhelming. She was very good at helping me make informed choices.

We had a excellent evening. Great choice of wine, food was very good and our waiter for the evening was excellent. He had a wonderful personality and he does the Fish House proud. All in all a very memorable as we had guests from abroad.

I go to the Fish house for many occasions and the last one was a business lunch. Food is good and ambience can be business, casual or romantic - whatever you like.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant used to be located at DVP and Sheppard Avenue. It is now located at Woodbine Avenue south of the 404. The food is still consistently good and very affordable. If you love fresh seafood at a reasonable price, this is the restaurant for you.

Good seafood restaurant
Almost like a tavern, people chating, not noisy, no loud music. Great selection of seafood/fish to choose from and lots of ways to cook it. I reserved through Open Table with a special request for a quiet table and they honored my request.

Dining at the Fish House for me is a 30 year tradition of supurb meals

An age old tradition
It never loses the great food, ambience or service over the years! The staff are terrific!

Four of us recently had dinner at the Fish House... its one of our favourite places for a bit of an occasion.
It did not disappoint, the food was excellent, as always, and the server was outstanding. Very enjoyable evening.

The special menu received by email brought me there. Food was good and reasonable.

We took friends of ours there for her birthday dinner as I know she enjoys fish. We had the early bird dinner that included an appetizer. Three of us had the coconut shrimp and the birthday girl had the spicy shrimp. Two had the salmon dinner and two of us had the asiago pasta with shrimp, salmon and crab meat. We all had dessert and coffee. Everything was delicious. The service was excellent as usual. We always come back here if we want a great dinning experience.

Great selection and taste
Just like the title says this place has great selection of dishes (not only fish so your kids can enjoy themselves as well). And everything I've tried so far was good. The menu also changes depending on the season so you can try different things every time you go.

Always a joy
I have been a fan of The Fish House since they were located on Sheppard in North York and I lived nearby. They moved north and I moved into the heart of Toronto and I don't mind the trip up the Don Valley and 404 at all. I have been there three or four times in the last year and each time the food, staff, and restaurant itself has been terrific. They are helpful with menu suggestions and the chefs are willing to alter a menu item to suit a customer's particular request. Always a joy and I'm always ready to return.

Food was outstanding but felt
Food was outstanding but felt that the price for two glasses of wine was a little high. Charged for open bottle but only drank 2 glasses.($14.00). Other than that all was fantastic.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant has achieved the right balance between background music and the ability for its diners to carry on conversations without having to shout. The madademia crusted tilapia was delicous. Our table was able to take advantage of the early bird specials which were varied and nicely priced. Our waiter was very efficient and helpful but did not hover or rush us in any way. I would return to this restaurant 'in the future.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The staff are very friendly and helpful. the food is fantastic. Our friends keep asking to come back when we plan our dinners out.
prices are very good for the excellent food. I love fish but only when I am out. Cannot get the same great taste and cook as with the fish house. Always a good experience. Never had a bad meal either lunch or dinner. We will be back. Thanks

Introduced our son and girlfriend to The Fish House - they called and said it was their new favorite spot. Our server was very attentive and took great care of us. Fish House has never disappointed after all these years!

The Fish House is a great little spot for healthy business lunches. This is a common place for one of my customers and I enjoy it every time. Excellent place.
