Clean, great ambiance, delicious food. I had a wonderful time spending my birthday at Blackfish. Colby made my birthday cake and I loved it. I would certainly eat and bring my friends again at Blackfish.

Blackfish is my most favorite restaurant!!!
They NEVER DISAPPOINT, my husband had the chefs
special steak, which he said was awesome! I had the scallops seared with Boysenberry Compote on the side , and mushroom risotto, they were absolutely delicious, you can’t get better than that!!
I love the way the Caesar salad is presented very unique and quite delicious. Also at the beginning of the meal your served crackers and 3 spreads which all 3 are delicious.
The raw oysters were nice and fresh too.
Blackfish you nailed it again!!!!!
Thank you :))

I took my mom and sis to "Thanksgiving" dinner and all enjoyed. The fillet mignon was the best I've ever had, moist, perfectly cooked and melted like butter in my mouth. This is where we take special corporate guests, those that have flown in from our Paris headquarters. The service and food has never failed to be excellent. Even the French are impressed with the food and delighted with the wine service (and our Washington wines.)

With apps, drinks, entree and a shared desert we still got out of there for about $70/person. Very fair price for the top rated fish-house in the county.

The service was excellent and the food was absolutely mouth-watering delicious! Even though the prices are slightly higher than "medium range" all the food was well-worth it. The only very minute drawback is that it is a little dark in the restaurant (but great for a romantic meal) and a little loud at times but I would highly recommend this restaurant at the Tulalip Resort Casino for a wonderfully delightful meal and place to eat!

The food is excellent! My steak was perfectly grilled, my friend's fish was wonderful, and the sauces made you want to lick the plate! Although they were busy, our server Rhonda had perfect timing with everything, along with being very courteous and professional. My only complaint: you have to walk through the cigarette smoke filled casino to get to the restaurant...I wish they had an entrance that was less cancer-causing.

Our visit was to celebrate a 75th birthday. We found the bread and butter very interesting and a nice surprise. One of us ordered the hazelnut sea bass and was blown away with the flavors. The fish was beautifully prepared and very tender. The combination of the hazelnuts and vegetables was wonderful and quite unique. Two if us ordered the shrimp. We enjoyed the opportunity to select our sauces and sides, which, of course were wonderful. The drinks were out of this world. The pumpkin white Russian was so tasty. The chocolate martini drink was fabulous. We all would have loved to drink a gallon of our specialty drinks. They were simply awesome and, again, so unique and tasty. The server did a great job explaining the various drinks and dinners. She was pleasant as well as fun. The birthday boy was quite happy and enjoyed his cake immensely! What a treat our experience was at your restaurant. Thank you!

Steaks and scallops were excellent. However, the Heritage salmon was very disapointing, dry and not much taste. The side of tender green beans were actually so tough they were hard to cut up with a knife. Our server was excellent.

The food was amazing. The Pacific NW Bounty Bowl was so delicious with tons of fresh seafood. The Almond Rocher dessert was so rich and chocolatey, the perfect end to a perfect meal.

We waited a bit for our server, noticed other parties that came in after us were seen first- my husbands crab cakes were cold, my daughters steak was lukewarm. Our server was very nice and helpful, but on our reservation we had made a note of a birthday and that was ignored. Biggest complaint is the noise- there was a party of approximately 7 people a few tables away and they made so much noise you would have thought you were at a Sports Bar. And that is how it seemed, we were paying finer dining prices for a sports bar atmosphere. It was disappointing.

It will be a while before we return. Unfortunately my husbands steak was severely undercooked compared to what he requested. We were all done eating and honestly ready to leave when it was brought back out which was disappointing. Additionally, our server didn’t offer bread as she did with other tables and I had to request a gluten free option, even though I clearly ordered gluten free...our previous dining and particularly service experience in the past was much better. We were celebrating some pretty big news friends and they had never been to the restaurant...I’m disappointed this was their first experience.

We go to Blackfish ever year for our wedding anniversary. and always enjoy it. Our dinner was so good! Our server Rhonda was excellent. If we won have won at the casino would have made our night. But you can't always go home as winners.

Service is always great, just wish they would bring back the scallops on bed of corn and cauliflower, or maybe it was mashed potatoes. Do not care for the blackberries and scallops. Otherwise, love the service!

The service is always outstanding. The food used to be amazing and worth the price paying cash years ago but it isn't really that great anymore but since you pay for it with your Players card then its not that bad. The food is not horrible, its good at best I would say for the last 4 years. The pizza at the new Pizza place has better food than Blackfish. The filet mignon used to be incredible... as good as the Met in Seattle, but the last 3 times I had it I ate 2 bites. Last weeks dinner was crab cakes, crab legs, I had the King salmon, I ordered it slow roasted, it came out charred and dry which is a bummer because King Salmon is the best of all Salmon. I scraped off the top burnt part and was so hungry ate all of it. The cheddar hash potatoes were gross, the gourmet rice was ok but would have been better if the lemon slices I ordered weren't dry so I could add some flavor to it. I didn't eat the rice either. I can't remember what the 4th person ordered. A seafood soup and I cant remember his main meal. There were 4 of us. I believe the crab that was ordered was Dungeness, cant remember but at about 40.00, 2 medium sized legs and they were ok... he also did not eat his 2 sides. The reservation was for 3 but another person decided to show. We had a wonderful time visiting and were not rushed at all and our server could not have been better but it was hard to hear and as always its a tad too dark in there. When I do go there I go as a treat to dress up and always hoping for a spectacular meal. The alcoholic drinks were very good.

My filet Mignon was a little tough for this cut and had a little fat in it.the rice medley was good. I tasted my husbands grilled shrimp and did not like the taste or texture . The crab legs and Caesar salad were good.
The service was excellent but I will not eat here again . The Bistro St Martin in Arlington is superior by far for similar price

We heard this was an amazing restaurant. It was just okay - pretty middle America, somewhat bland. At $50/plate, I expect mind blowing. It was far from it. The pre-dinner crackers were the highlight of the meal for all 4 of us. Cocktails were middling and the noise level HIGH (with smoke from adjacent casino). It was a relief to get out. There are too many great restaurants to waste your money/night here.

The best Halibut we have ever eaten! The service was fast and our server was attentive. The food was so good that I didn't flinch at the $125 bill. The reason I did not give it 5 stars is because I could smell cigarette smoke from the casino during our meal. We had to walk through the slot machine area to get to the restaurant. The smoke was so thick that I actually gagged. There were no facilities in the restaurant, I had to walk through the smoke again to get to the restroom. Even though it was the best restaurant meal I have ever eaten, I will most likely never go back.

The service was excellent from arrival to leaving. Our waitress accommodated a couple of minor requests that we asked for during dinner. Everything we ordered was well presented. The vegetable sides were high quality and not overdone. The booths were all filled and a couple of tables had guests and yet my wife and I were not interrupted during our dinner conversation. The Walla Walla onion soup was thicker than my wife likes but its flavor was good. My red and yellow beets and asparagus were both excellent.
My scallops were excellent.

Dinner was perfect. Just got back from a major international trip and was staying in the hotel as a nice break before getting back to the daily grind. Dinner here was perfect. The New York steak was huge and tasty. The filet was cooked perfectly and the French onion soup was rich and delicious. Our server was attentive and timely and so friendly. I recommend this restaurant to anybody wanting a nice dining experience

Noise level was out of control. Ended up putting tissue in ears for comfort.
Salmon chowder on menu did NOT mention other seafood, ie lobster etc. My husband and I intended to share but he is allergic. Please rename the chowder as seafood chowder so at least we would ask. Could also ask servers to remind customers it is NOT just salmon.
Main entree and accompaniments were unpleasantly salty. Husband could not finish meal.
To your credit the manager did comp the appetizers.
We dine at blackfish a couple times a year at least and have always enjoyed the food and service. Although noise level has always been a problem we were willing to overlook for the pleasure of the meal. That may no longer be the case.

Yes I would! The part that is off putting is to have to walk through the smoky, noisy casino. I was really worried as I approached restaurant whether I would enjoy this experience.

Wish it was located near the meeting rooms section of the resort. I really believe it would receive all the attention it deserves.

We had a great night. Nice wine selection & bottles starting in the forties. Oysters were fresh & they had a great, local variety. Steamed Clams were very tasty. Scallops were large & great (a little too much jam on them though. Made them too sweet for me). Steak was just right. Berry salad was nice & fresh as well. Our server was excellent. We enjoyed our fine dining experience.
