Big Fish Grill-Issaquah
Celebrating a birthday and went for brunch. Staff were attentive and food was great!
You are not known to be a steak house but the Ribeye steak that I had was evcellent as good as it better than any steak house. Only negative was the asparagus. Not worth the added $2. Halibut fish and chips was excellent Your coleslaw is and always has been the best.
This has the best Cobb salad in Seattle Metro area. Unfortunately they have little to nothing for vegetarian or vegan guests. I had made reservations online requesting vegan offerings. At the restaurant my guest was offered French fries and cauliflower as a vegan meal. Was unsure if the fries were cooked in vegetable oil.
Many other restaurants have vegan offerings (Schwartz Bros.) so that is where I will go when my guests want vegan or vegetarian
Wonderful Valentine's evening with delicious dishes. It's a shame the special Valentine's menu, with its half-dozen oysters, ceviche, lobster tail, steak and other straightforward fresh grilled/baked/steamed/fried dishes aren't available on the main menu which looks to be straight out of the late '80s. Everything is crusted, pankoe'd, breaded, stuffed and sauced. Most of the wines on the list are by the bottle (like, all but three). And while the bottle prices are reasonable, if you're looking for variety by the glass, you'll have no luck here.
The food was delicious, and everyone was really nice, but our server clearly wasn't up to the evening. He barely interacted, was slow (during a barely populated early evening non-rush), and despite asking him for coffee *four* times at the end of the meal, never received it. And he never said "bye," "thank you," "have a good evening" or "Happy Valentine's Day." Considering we'd just gotten dug out of the snow, it was fairly amazing we were able to attend at all.
Tasty food, beautiful space, friendly staff. But if you're looking for clean, contemporary dishes, you'll have to look elsewhere.
We had a great meal celebrating Valentine's Day.
The manager was on top of everything and made sure we had excellent service
Big Fish in Issaquah is my absolute go-to for any special occasion or treat-myself meal. The menu is varied and always has exciting specials. The staff are impeccable with their customer service! I've never been disappointed and have consistently been surprised with how above and beyond all team members go for their patrons. If I need to treat a client, celebrate my anniversary or birthday, or plan a special goodbye lunch for a visiting or deploying family member, I can always count on Big Fish in Issaquah!
Fantastic evening. Loved the artichoke spinach dip, pan fried oysters, halibut tacos, salmon bacon lettuce tomato sandwich, and marion berry cobbler.
Food was not worth for the price. Did not taste the food at all .
Scallops undercooked. Risotto over cooked. Crab cakes were amazing. Salmon stuffed with Brie was good. Service was stellar.
Disappointing meal and lack of service. My Salmon BLT was terrible -- overcooked, dry salmon with only one slice of bacon. Will not be back.
Never been to this location before and will definitely go back! Food was great and pricing was completely in line. The bartender was AMAZING! She was on the ball so much so that when a booth opened we asked to remain in the bar area as we had reservations for the dining room (which was very busy being New Years Eve at a tad bit on the noisy side but understandable for the time-frame. It was a great evening - no complaints here! And again a shout out to the lovely bartender!!! Thank you for making us feel welcome!
We went on New Year’s Eve, expectIng the restaurant to be busy. It was unfortunate that you were out of the lobster dinner by 6:00. If you don’t have enough for your patrons maybe you shouldn’t offer it. However, the crab cakes, halibut and salmon taco were delicious. The waiter was a little distracted, which was somewhat understandable on a very busy night.
We went for our anniversary (which I told them it was and I wanted a window seat when I called). The host tried to sit us at a small two seater table away from the window. Our waitress was busy and a manager took our order. The waitress talked to us twice. I wasn’t expecting anything for our anniversary but it would be a nice touch for them to have at least recognized that it was since I told them on the Open Table reservation site.
The food was good. The beer was warm.
Not sure when we will go back. Maybe after some time.
Great service and food.
Scallops and risotto was terrific as was my guests Cobb salad and steamer clams. Had lots of gluten free options which is great. Took off points because it’s too bright. I’m having dinner in a restaurant not a diner. And it was cold. We were seated by the fireplace and it was off most of the time. It was really cold.
Average food with great service and ambiance.
Excellent dessert and service!
Excellent food and service. Never been disappointed.
Very good service and very good good! Always reliable!
Second time there, very disappointed compared to the first time.
Great value for good quality seafood.
I love Big Fish in Issaquah Food consistently good.
We have had issues with some wait staff being inpatient and unfriendly. Both waiters Waitesesses not so much.
We still go back in spite.
The menu looked pretty good, but the food was actually just OK and seemed overpriced. Probably won’t go back.
Good service and very fresh oysters and salmon and nice garlicky Caesar salad!
We like the food. Apple crisp is too sweet for me. Wish they have more choices for desserts
We love their jambalaya and paella and order most of the time we go there.
Pleasantly surprised how good the seafood was and we are very particular with our seafood. Great service too.
I took my mom here for her birthday last week and we had an amazing time. Our waitress was extremely friendly but not overbearing. Mom got the Wagyu steak off of their specials sheet and it was outstanding! Definitely a great meal with exceptional service. Highly suggest to all.
the crab cakes were very bread crumby . not much crab.
First time here. Would definitely return. Neighborhood gem.
The food was delicious and the portion size was generous. No music or TV-we wanted someplace quiet so this was perfect. We were celebrating my aunt's 93rd birthday. She was really tickled with the surprise birthday dessert and had a very enjoyable evening.
We were looking for a restaurant for my husband’s birthday celebration that was new to us, nice menu without being overly expensive or fussy. My husband wanted dessert options that weren’t dark chocolate oriented! The Big Fish Grill delivered on all counts. Great food (The only loss of a star was that we felt the Marionberry Cobbler was a bit bland. It was still good but everything else was great. The complimentary cheesecake with cappuccino whipped cream was excellent! Our server was attentive without being intrusive, and all in all we were delighted with our new find. Will definitely go again.
An item on the menu is no longer served, but still on the menu. Server grabbed my water glass by the rim to refill after 2 sips. A few servers/bussers were walking around aimlessly just staring at people. No efficiency in the employees except the bartender that looked to be working very hard. Food was quite tasty though.
Best ribeye we’ve ever had!
The server was pleasant and the food good. The calamari was extra delicious! Light and flavorful and the best I’ve had in years.
Unfortunately it was so cold in the restaurant that we ate our food fast and didn’t order dessert just to get out of the frigid facility. We mentioned it but it didn’t warm up.
Best Halibut Fish and Chips on the Planet!
Must have the Sweet Potato Waffle Fries 🍟
Food was okay, nothing to write home about.
Enjoyed the atmosphere, which was cozy and not too loud. Server was friendly and accommodating.
The food was excellent and there was something for everyone. Although I'm allergic to most shellfish, there was plenty to choose from on the menu.
The food was great as usual, and everyone loved their dishes served. Our waitress was very nice, and she took good care of us, coming to check on us quite often too!
