    Fish was excellent. We ate outdoors--very nice. Indoors looks small, so beware of noise.

    Stuffed shrimp was very good as was the bouillabaisse. Burger was OK, and cocktails very good. Bread pudding needs help.

    Overall a good to very good restaurant. Room was loud but it was prime time on Saturday night. Service was very friendly and pretty efficient (second round of drinks took a minute) as well. Food was very good--we had clams on the half shell, grilled octopus for starters and blackened branzino and paella as main courses. Chocolate-pecan torte for dessert. I would definitely return--a solid 4 stars--very good!

    Disappointing given the reviews. Fried Calamari lacked that nutty taste; was bland Shrimp Porcini Pappardelle was also bland; the shrimp overcooked and rubbery; the pappardelle had an off-putting brown color The waiter forgot one of our appetizers The desert platter: each tasted store bought and from ice box; they don't have a pastry chef. The noise: so painful we had to leave before our group wanted to break up.

    There was little to no air conditioning in the entire restaurant. The air quality inside was stifling, to say the least.

    We were looking for a casual date night. Food was great. The lettuce salmon and Montauk fried calamari was great. Our server was very nice and friendly but service took a while for food and drinks as it seemed they were understaffed. Server apologized for the wait as the kitchen was backed up. This was our first experience. I would go back despite the service hoping for a better second time but still thinking about that salmon appetizer.

    Arrived early. Staff very accommodating to get a table set up as soon as one was available. Was not simply given water or bread was asked if they were wanted. Had the naked fish pan-seared salmon with lemon and caper sauce (served on the side) and a generous portion of roasted sweet potatoes. Good, but it wasn’t anything spectacular and quite overpriced—.one plate and one glass of wine cost $50. A bit noisy inside. Not sure I’d return since there are several other establishments on Bedford Street that could offer a similar meal with better quality, value and ambiance.

    First, the servers couldn’t be more welcoming and attentive. The food was excellent! The shrimp for shrimp cocktail were so fresh and had the perfect “ crunch”. I had a Hake special which was outstanding. My 3 companions took advantage of Naked Fish and were extremely pleased with their meals. Not being from Stamford, I didn’t know what to expect. What a hopping scene on restaurant row! So much fun! There was music playing but it wasn’t so loud you couldn’t talk to each other. It was just right. We will definitely be back.

    This was our second time at F.I.S.H. We even sat at the same table. The staff is friendly and engaged but not invasive. Although the bar was lively, the noise level was good. Our food was delicious! My husband's whole fish was grilled to perfection with criss-cross markings on the top that created a lovely crust. My fig-apple salad was delicious. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and look forward to visiting again.

    It was a “date” with 1 of my daughters with whom I don’t get to spend much 1 on 1 time. We had a lovely evening! Both of our dishes (Seafood Linguine & Cajun Shrimp) were terrific and our server was friendly, timely and professional! We agreed several times last night and even this morning what a great experience we had - thank you FISH!
