    I like fresh fish. Here it tastes really fresh. The wines are good and not overpriced. Key lime pie was excellent.

    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.

    Lovely late lunch outside on a Sunday. Service was attentive and pleasant. Oysters, pear arugula salad and grilled octopus very good, plus the grilled salmon. Very happy with the experience.

    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!

    We had lunch on a Saturday with a business associate. It was very pleasant, the food excellent, the service attentive. The only thing that I found interesting was that the restaurant was almost empty, though it could be that it is somewhat pricey and the usual business clientele was missing on a Saturday.

    Our go to for great oysters and Prosecco. Also. Order the tuna carpaccio flatbread- delish and beautifully presented. A little disappointed they were out of Kumamoto oysters, but over server explained they did not get a delivery ( new normal).

    Good was excellent! Best grilled octopus by far. Mussels fantastic as well. Main courses did not disappoint! Drinks were outstanding as well; best “Old Fashioned “ only complaint was the bread! Need to upgrade here- very plain and tasteless!!

    We went here for lunch, during Stamford's Restaurant week. Everything we ordered was delicious. We had the shaved brussel sprouts salad and the egg rolls for appetizers and then my husband had the seafood fettuccine for his entree. The serving size was substantial and the assortment, and amount, of fish in the pasta was amazing. I had the fish and chips and that too, was delicious and a good size serving! We would definitely go back again as the regular menu looked very appealing!

    The food is always good. Went for restaurant week. The appetizers we only ok, we had the spring rolls and the lettuce wrap. For entrees we had the seafood pasta and the salmon. The pasta was amazing as always. For the finale we had key lime tart, the only key lime dessert I like.
