When we arrived, I informed the host that it was my wife’s birthday. He promptly took us to arguably the worse table in the house. We moved to a better table near the glass waterfall. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. We both ordered the crab cakes and they were beyond excellent! The chef coats the crab cakes in potato chips and lightly fries them. No greasy taste. They came with excellent creamy whipped potatoes and steamed spinach. Both were well prepared and tasty. Our wine and martini were excellent. Overall we felt a little rushed, but it was the opening night of the Virginia Symphony, so maybe that explains it. It was a very nice experience and my wife was happy. We dine there whenever we can and plan to do so soon. Please take any criticism as constructive. We would not hesitate to recommend 456Fish to friends and family.

Food as usual was very good. Presentation very creative and appetizing. Unfortunately we were rushed with a 6:30 reservation because the restaurant was closing early. Wish we’d been advised to make an earlier reservation.

Did Easter Brunch, and wish they were open again for all Sunday brunches. We used to do it quite regulary and miss it!
Still a great place for dinner as well.

Great Easter brunch; excellent food (the avocado and crab toast was delightful and their Bloody Mary’s were simple, but good) and a nice environment to see friends we haven’t seen much during Covid. Will definitely return.

We were greeted at the door so kindly and were sat promptly. Our server came quick and got our drinks right away. The special dish for the night was excellent. We really enjoyed it. Social distancing was practiced which I appreciate greatly.

I loved the fact that the parking lot was right next to the location. The set-up of the restaurant was lovely. I liked that the dress code was business casual, so people could not walk in wearing just anything. The prices were reasonable, and the food was delicious! Service was terrific, and my husband & I will go back.

Last minute plans brought us to 456fish. What a great find. Definitely top 3 meals of my life. Every ingredient in every dish was right on point. We had the baby kale salad, fried oysters on mango/pineapple salsa, scallops with risotto and prosciutto wrapped halibut.

First time there, food was excellent, service was wonderful, average price, but I would put this place top 10 in Hampton Roads for fish. Only thing I would recommend is a steak option on the menu!

This restaurant is very nice. I planned a Birthday Dinner with friends. Reservation was set for 8pm but I had to change it at the last minute. Our waiter was great but throughout the entire visit I felt as if they set on our shoulders rushing us to finish. I wish they would have communicated with us that the drinks are to be order by 9:30pm , alcohol off the table by 10pm, and that the kitchen closes at 10pm. Online it stated that they close at 11pm. Its the feeling when the workers are tapping their feet ready to go but you haven't even touched your food yet. That was the vibe. We could have left before we took a seat had we known within the hour they would start to shut down. I would still visit with an earlier Reservation.

I would recommend this restaurant over and over again! The food, the service, the atmosphere, everything was so good. I got the crab stuffed flounder and my boyfriend got the blackened tuna and both were amazing! If you like seafood and are in the Norfolk area 456 Fish is the place to go!
