    Very good dishes and excellent service. However, portions are small for the $$$ prices. We went on a Saturday night and they had live jazz which was great!

    We have gone to Fish the last few years for our anniversary. It has always been very good this year it was terrible and we will not return. The food was good the portions were less than previous years. The worst part was the noise level. There was a table opposite us that had a least ten Gentlemen who were there for dinner. They were extremely loud and it was to the point that we could not have a conversation between us. Fish is not the fine dinning it use to be.

    We had dined here before the COVID pandemic and the food, service and ambience have always been good. We dined on Father's Day which is also my mother-in-law's birthday with 5 other very close family friends. The place is spacious and quiet with good ambience to chat. The food was good but uneven. Appetizers were good including calamari, grilled octopus, charcuterie and cheese board and fried clam bellies. The bluefin tuna, haddock, salmon, grilled shrimp and seafood jambalaya were all good with large portions too. The swordfish was overcooked and the entree' fisherman's platter was over salted so we had to send it back and the replacement was much better. Service was excellent we had a very attentive, friendly server named Murillo. We will back but hope the cooking can be more consistent.

    Our server Josh was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu which proved to be very helpful. A Jazz quartet started playing while we were eating to help provide a great overall experience. the eating area at the bar is located near large doors to provide a nice "open air" environment. Would return and recommend to a friend.

    4 people wanting to enjoy $1 oysters and we were disappointed. Overall even with 2 varieties they were way small: and I mean smaller than a dime for perhaps a third. 2 shells were actually empty and those they replaced. The Cesar salads were great! It was also a gorgeous day and we’ve enjoyed the bar area in the past with the doors wide open. Yesterday everything closed up because the AC was on.

    We were very excited for our meal and very disappointed. The oysters were tiny. We had pan seared scallops in a lobster ravioli. Each plate had 4 and a half scallops which was odd. It was so excessively buttery that we were both trying to dry the food off first. The ravioli was flavorless. The grits were crunchy? And the flavor was lacking overall. Our waiter was nice though.

    Ultimately the problem is the quality of the food, it's low. It feels like there is an attempt to mask that with over seasoning. Oysters: very sad looking oysters. Low quality and value Fried clams: salty. I have lived in New England all my life. I have never had a salty fried clams, however it was one of the more edible dishes we had Filet: hard to really call it a filet more than a medallion or scraps. The meat was TOUGH and cooked blue rather than rare. The gentleman next to us had the same thing. Poked at his, complained and basically left. I'm hindsight we should have joined him Scallops and Shrimp casserole that came with the filet: the scallops were rubbery and had a fishy taste, reminiscent of something that's aged out. The shrimp tasted mostly of heavy pepper. Neither very edible Haddock: over seasoned to the point it was literally not edible. Drinks: cocktails were great. The tap beer was disappointing. After getting my first foamy flat beer I was told it was a new keg, I tried each of the other IPAs and every one was the same. More indicative of temperature and or pressure problems then it is a new keg. Unless of course every single beer had a brand new keg at the same time. Not probable but plausible Staff: Friendly and helpful. I paid, tipped and left. Not much point in pushing back during dinner when the problem is the ingredients being used are poor quality i.e garbage in, garbage out. Atmosphere: cool atmosphere Overall: it's a miss. For the price and low quality you may as well head towards the city and get a better value. I hope they do evaluate using higher quality meats and seafoods that negates the need for inedible over seasoning to mask it. Could be a diamond, but right now it's coal level.

    We have been Fish customers for years. During Covid, the restaurant took a bit of a dive but recently has recovered. We were there a week ago and everything was excellent. Yesterday’s experience was not as great as my swordfish was dry and rubbery. Perhaps some of this had to do with the Mother’s Day crowd.

    We went to Fish to celebrate our anniversary. We probably won't do that again. As others have noted, it's not as good as pre-pandemic. Food was edible, just. My fried clams were encased in a heavy cornmeal batter that made them more like fritters than fried clams. There also weren't that many clams and the flavor of the clams was overwhelmed by the breading. I've had more clams that were better in flavor, breading and quantity at a clam shack in Lancaster for a few dollars more. Scallop main dish had what appeared to be four thick slices of scallop instead of whole sea scallops. The rest of the meal was unremarkable. The best part of our meals were the the bacon truffle french fries. They were served warm, not hot which would have made them great. My wife had a $16 glass of Chardonnay that she didn't want to finish. The $9 Colombard I had was a better value. They seem to have lowered food quality to keep prices down. That's a mistake in my opinion.

    Excellent food & service. It was our first time to visit. We started with the calamari - perfectly cooked with added peppers & and a sweet/sour sauce. Kids had swordfish & haddock. We had salmon & clams. For dessert, kids has the chocolate cake & cheesecake. Amazing! Will definitely return for quality, fresh seafood.

We were a party of 8 and all I heard from everyone "outstanding", "best chowder I've ever had", "never had anything as good as this" - Jess and her staff never fail to disappoint, in fact, it keeps getting better and better! Check out the scallops with lobster ravioli a new addition to the creative menu!! Thank you thank you - we will all be back again!!
