    Great neighborhood, scenery, mix of patrons. The design of the interior of the restaurant is fabulous. Our server "Bear" was over the top fantastic!!!! The salmon from Scotland had a wonderful crispy crust with a great flavor. The cioppinno was also fantastic and cooked to my husband's requests. Don't miss out. One of the best seafood restaurants in the region.

    We were seated in bar booth. Loud even at 5pm. The bartenders were our servers. Many Chardonnays (wife’s choice) on the US list are older than 2018. Ordered an ‘18 Panthera and was served a ‘17. It was fine, but overpriced. Thai mussels were served w a luke-warm broth. Wife’s scallop entree was excellent, in her words. Service was great!! The prices at 801 Fish are typical of Clayton, but just because you are neighbors to the Ritz Carlton doesn’t necessarily justify the priciness. This was the third time we have dined at 801 Fish. Probably the last. Not having been “wowed” at those prices was somewhat disappointing. Once again, the service that we received from the 2 bartenders was outstanding!

    It took 30 minutes to get a loaf of bread. 45 minutes to have our first drink order taken. 60 minutes before we actually got to order food. 90 minutes before we saw a drink or an appetizer arrive. By the time we got dinner, we had been there for 2 hours. Normally a slow meal is good, but you actually have to have something brought to you.

    Oysters were excellent, and crab cakes very good, but the swordfish and the sea bass were both dry and without much flavor. Very expensive to have such a below average meal.

    When you pay this much to dine, you’re expectation is super high. 801 Fish met that expectation plus more. I’m a foodie and super judgy of food - and I wasn’t gonna buy into the hype - but I’m sold. And will continually patronize this establishment.

    Pleasant waitress. Good food, not exceptional. Must be short staffed because service requests: lemons, more water, etc. took forever. A 6:30 reservation and the restaurant was tremendously loud.

    We loved 801 Fish. Seafood was fresh and delicious, especially the grilled oysters and sea bass. The shellfish and broth in the seafood cioppino was fantastic. Service was spot on especially with suggestions for wines. Only negative is that the meal was tremendously pricey. Also parking is a bit of a challenge as it is quite limited but they will offer valet service.

    Service was OUTSTANDING. We came for birthday dinner for my daughter’s 21st. Nate did a great job taking care of the table. The raw platter was delicious. Disappointed with the Mac n cheese and my lobster tail. I could barely eat it. While the preparation was excellent, cooked perfectly, it was so salty. You could have cut the salt in 1/2, and still been to salty. I left over 1/2 on my plate, could taste nothing else. The girls enjoyed their dinners. I hate to send any food back. I never do it, maybe I should have. I would definitely go back, too nice not to!

    The food is ok but not special, which does not justify the price. However, the service was completely hopeless. The waiter was cheerful but appeared to not know what he was doing. Passing the table many times but never stopping, we had to flag him down to place an order. And the restaurant was less than half full... he seemed to be wandering around aimlessly most of the time. Then he served the food before the wine arrived and seemed surprised when we pointed this out. All cheerfully done but ridiculously bad. A stressful evening..

    Entrees were 5 stars, but service brought it down a notch as it wasn’t up to par. Excellent food. The salmon, and NY trip were prepared perfectly and served both very hot. The truffle cream spinach is very tasty with a nice Parmesan crust. Server seemed to want to rush things at the beginning after we were just seated. After I told her we were not in a hurry, she got the message. She forgot to bring our shrimp cocktail. She insisted on taking our entire order which I prefer no to do as service then gets rushed and items forgotten. Server oddly removed our bread plates and unused butter and butter knives each time she brought new bread. But she was mostly fine during the evening but seemed rushed serving many tables on a busy night.

    Went for a belated Mother’s Day dinner. Mom later said it was one of the best meals she’s ever had. Dad concurred. Nate was our server abs amazing! We loved not feeling rushed. He was attentive, and always had a smile. Impeccable service by everyone we encounter. The scallops were Devine, the drinks were perfect. We can’t wait to go back for another dinner and I can’t wait to bring friends here.
