Wonderful birthday dinner! I highly recommend the crab cakes, fried shrimp, and bread pudding.

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!

Went in for valentines and it was a very nice spot. Food was great and my wife enjoyed her meal. My only gripe was the social distancing looked a lil suspect. I’ll go back after COVID dies down.

Food was decent, can’t say that I really liked it. Ordered a crab deep (which was absolutely plain and rainy), Caesar salad with tuna (tuna definitely needed some seasoning or sauce on it), my boyfriend had a stuffed flounder, which wasn’t bad but he didn’t enjoyed it either. For dessert we had a cream brûlée, which is supposed to be warm outside and cold inside, seemed to be just taken out of freezer. But tasted good in overall. On a good side service was very pleasant, our server was always nice and attentive, unfortunately don’t remember her name, but she was the only reason I left 30% tip on a check. Probably not going to come back, but as a one time experience- is okay.

Good job by all, was kinda disappointed by the crab cake, it was fantastic but sort of on the small side. Lots of crab, hardly any filler. Been a while since I have been to 456 Fish, last time the crab cakes were huge and you could actually see/make out the potatoe chip crust. Nevertheless, everything was great. The Bronzino was excellent, seasoning was tasty!!

My entree had shrimp in it and it was not supposed to have shrimp. They remade the dish but it was rushed. The pasta was then grainy and undercooked the second time. They offer me a free dessert as compensation. I guess that was supposed to make it better.

I must say 456 is one of my go to restaurants. But I will say I don’t know if the manager Lisa is a family or not, but she definitely needs to be polished up just a bit. Her customer service/manager skills are from being pleasant. She is very rigid, I don’t I have ever seen her smile. And she stands around like a solider.
In my conversation with her, I explained if so could get a different sauce that wasn’t ice cold. She advised they had a Chili aioli . I was like perfect, I like spicy. Well that salute came straight out of refrig, ice cold. Then I asked for Tabasco. Same thing, ice cold.
Not once was she concerned or inquired if I was satisfied. Oh well. I took my food home.
The waitress was nice, but she played with her too much.

We were visiting family and it happened to be restaurant week. We tried one restaurant the day before and it was amazing. We ordered and the first course came out quick. I got the she crab soup, it came out luke warm but was good. My main course was grouper something, this is where the issues came. The sauce on the fish was not complimentary to the fish. The waitress asked how everything was and I told her it was not good. She asked if I wanted it taken away, I said yes. I figured they would either replace the fish without the sauce on it or supplement it with something else. She came back and said the manger will not let you choose another, but he will allow you to buy another meal at the employee rate. I did not buy another meal, I had to pay for a meal I did not eat (I ate the appetizer and desert). The whole purpose restaurant week is to showcase the restaurant and what it has to offer. The point of this rant is to say their customer service sucks and the manager never came to the table to speak to us about this. Will never dine here again.

We usually come here for every restaurant week and love the specials. This time seemed different. The food quantity was less. I don’t like how they serve you the bread. They should leave it on the table. We had calamari as the app and she crap soup. Soup seemed to have less crab than normal. The crab cake was smaller and last time, I had 2 of them. It just didn’t seem up to par. The crab cakes are one of the best though. All crab meat and coated in corn flakes. The food also seemed a little cold when it was brought out. Not the best we’ve had there but certainly still a great restaurant. We’ll still keep coming and see if it was an off night.

If I had a complaint it would be that the servers try to turn the tables very quickly. Ask them for more time and it’s fantastic!!
