Our guests are our priority and something we've always held true to is "anticipating guest's needs and desires." We pride ourselves in customer service with a personal touch and when a guest dines with us we want them to feel as though they are in our home.

We are regulars at Big Fish Issaquah. Our server was super friendly and helpful (actually seemed to enjoy being there!) and food was good. Wife had Chicken Picatta and I had the salmon tacos. We'll be back.

Waitress forgot to order our starters. The grilled salmon arrived stone cold. The fries with a burger were obviously double fried from stale ones. The excuse was ‘we are short staffed today, sorry!’

Pathetic experience. Stay away

Nice to finally be eating out again. Service was prompt and attentive, and the food was delicious. Limited menu with just three or four options each for meat and seafood but lots of sharing/appetizers which is not really surprising given COVID keeping folks away.

Big Fish is our favorite restaurant in Issaquah. The food is so fresh and delicious and the service excellent. We love eating outside on the patio, especially on a sunny day. I especially like the seafood salad. Thanks Big Fish for making my husband's recent birthday lunch a great experience.

I had great expectations after seeing the end on line, so was disappointed when ordering a wagyu steak meal. The meat was prepared as I asked, but it was rather rubbery bordering on tough. My husband's salmon was also not exciting; the filet was overcooked and the edges burnt. A friend's chipotle bean burger was reportedly quite good. The servers were good, the outside seating was pleasant. The drinks were good. Only the food disappoints. However, I would give this place another chance, and try something else on the menu.

Had the shrimp and scallops and fettuccini, was very good. Had the paella and it was OK. The big appetizer platter was not that great, especially for the price. The crab cakes on it were good, but the coconut shrimp wasn't. The brownie dessert was disappointing.

I have always LOVED the fish tacos here and it is the only thing I order. This time they were so BLAND I had to ask for more limes and salt and pepper to make them palatable. Not sure if I will return service was outstanding though.

Waitress was wonderful. Crab cakes were dry (needed more sauce), beef was tough and too much grissle (did not finish it). Waitress talked to the chef and the meal was removed from our bill. The scallop dish was very good and highly recommended. Too bad this happened on Father's Day. We probably won't return to this restaurant in the future.

We had a nice al fresco dinner last night on their patio, beautiful evening. Our server was excellent, a real energetic young lady. I ordered a glass of La Crema Chardonnay for $13 a glass. I knew the price when I ordered, but it rubs me the wrong way when I can buy the bottle for that at Costco. I had the crab cakes and pear, pecan blue cheese salad, always a favorite, no complaints. My husband ordered the wild salmon Oscar. He said it was good, but his plate contained 3 large new potatoes with a relatively small piece of salmon on top. It was $32. I love my neighborhood restaurants and support them, but I feel this restaurant is overpriced for what you get.
