Severely understaffed, resulting in verrrrry slow service and overcooked yet cold food. Our server was very apologetic but still...

What is better than cocktail hour on a warm spring day with the doors (walls) open wide, or seated out on the shaded patio? We came again for the $1 oysters and as usual, were NOT disappointed. A delightful cocktail, fresh shucked oysters, and lobster poutine (so unique and absolutely delicious!) made our visit relaxing and decadent. The staff and servers and attentive and friendly. This has been our go-to place for the past several years. We love Fish!

We went during happy hour great oysters they were $1. The drinks were very good my boyfriend got a beer I got a Purple Violet with vodka and elderberry, was delicious. The salmon entree with apple slaw was very good and was the crispiest, best salmon I have ever had. I highly recommend this restaurant. It’s good for business lunches as well I have usually been there for that but this night was a date night.

Let me start that as locals we want to very much like Fish Restaurant. And we know many restaurants are trying to get back on their feet during the pandemic. But it took an hour to get our food. While our waiter acknowledged the delay at time to pay the bill it seemed to be too late. Server should have at least comp'd us with a glass of wine. And the manager should have come to our table to apologize. This was an issue with Fish even before the pandemic - while food is really good, the service is very slow. We've been to a few restaurants over the past 2 months and so many owners and chefs have visited table to table to express their gratitude we've patronized their establishment during these times. Fish is missing that personal locally owned touch with focus on service. Sorry Fish, you have to do better!

Great experience, start to finish. We called ahead and were told that the heating system for the restaurant building was not working, but they would still take a reservation. We said "what the heck" and made the reservation anyway. When we arrived, we were seated near the gas fireplace in the bar area. A stroke of luck. Excellent start. Our server came right over, took our drinks order and handed us paper menus. So far, so good. We started with the mussels and they were piping hot, meaty and expertly prepared in a white wine broth. We're mussels fans and these were Top Ten ever. My date ordered the baked seafood dish and enjoyed it. The portion was a good size and just the right amount of lemon made the dish. Not perfection, but solid for sure. I ordered the seafood fra diabolo (spice is my thing). It arrived, again, served perfectly hot - in two ways. Shrimp, scallops, mussels and a small lobster claw on top of wide pasta in a broad bowl with a red spicy 🔥 sauce. Incredible. Kudos to the chef on that one, especially. We shared a nice bottle of South American red that was priced right. Our server (M, from Brazil, we learned) was friendly and attentive. He came over with espresso at the end of the meal - on the house as a thank you for making the reservation on a night when the restaurant heat was off but the kitchen heat was on & perfect.

Had probably hands down one of the worst experiences and meals at Fish Restaurant and wine bar. If you decide to visit this establishment (which I suggest you do not) read the menu carefully, seafood that is supposed to be included in your meal gets omitted and no mention of it is ever made by your server and when brought to the attention of management it is just ignored and the owner then attempts to bully you when brought to their attention through email communication. You will most likely be over charged for your drinks as well so review your bill thoroughly before settling up.

I have dined at fish about 7-8 times. Mostly pre-pandemic but have tried to support them this year as well. It is just unfortunately getting worse. Had a 6:30 reservation on Valentine’s Day. They were out of their lobster special, clams, scallops and the dessert special.......at 630.....on Valentine’s Day. If you know the menu this limits your “fish” options. Scallops AJ’s clams are in almost all the dishes right now. For the price I expected WAY better. For the occasion I expected WAY better. The waiters kept apologizing due to the high volume, but they already knew how many people were coming because they were not taking walk-ins. Again this was at 630, not 8 or 830. I felt quite bad for all of the reservations after us. Service is always very slow, food if you can get it is always wonderful. My advice eat when the doors open.

Food was awesome I can't say with words how awesome and delicious it was. Service was VIP Stephanie and Murilo were excellent with us. They gave is a VIP treatment and I will say more they made us feel as home. We had Searice it was delicious and Sea Fra diavlo great pasta with a little bit of spicy kick. The monkey bread was awesome. I recommend this restaurant 100%. I guarantee you will enjoy as much as I did.

The food was not as good as usual, we've always loved Fish and we understand that at this time they have to make cuts in the menu etc. We were taken back when we were told that we would be charged 25cents for a roll, and when we finally got it it was a few slices of stale focaccia, did not eat it. The food was good the service was OK, did not like to eat on a copper cover table, wish we at least had paper on it, it made you feel colder than I was. We hope it goes back to the way it used to be once this pandemic is under control.

We're never disappointed when we go to fish for an intimate date night or celebrating with the kids. My son has a seafood allergy and they cater to all our needs.

Can't beat happy hour $1 oysters, $2 shrimp, awesome sliders - so much flavor in small bites. Love the octopus as usual, but they've found a way to improve on an already great recipe - so tender on the inside and crispy on the outside and that aioli - have to find out what's in it. Must try the purple velvet coctail.

Food was good at Fish. The only issue my fiance and I had was the temperature in the restaurant. It was a bit chilly since the temperature dropped that day and they didn't balance that out.

Not impressed. Service was incredibly slow. I tried the oysters and I’ve never had them so poorly prepared. They were not loosened properly from the shell and then had fragments of shell in each one. Thankfully they were on special and only one dollar each. Server was extremely friendly but painfully slow and not attentive at all. And they were not even crowded. We had a nice dining experience because of the company but probably will not return.

At first I was disappointed because the menu had changed and my favorite Seafood cioppino dish which I would literally dream about, was no longer there. Instead I had the Fra Diavlo Seafood and it was incredible - both sweet and spicy and the seafood perfect. While not quite as good as the Cioppino it was a new dish I will return to.
The wine list also had changed, but I found the new list comparable to the old.
Restaurant was quiet because of COVID but during "normal" times it is usually fairly full.

Low occupancy due to Covid. They decor was OK. It’s sort of looks like an old Chinese restaurant. The service was great. The food was just OK. The fisherman‘s platter for $24 was not a particularly good value as it only contained two scallops and two shrimp in addition to haddock and clams. At that price I expect a little more seafood and fewer french fries. All in all, not a bad place for dinner, but I think there are better places for a seafood dinner.

We had a great server. Our cocktails were delicious and we really enjoyed the $1 oysters! We went at a quiet time and felt there was plenty of special for distancing. We also liked the coziness of the gas fireplace while the big front doors were open.
Great afternoon dining experience!

Unexpectedly nice experience from this unassuming looking restaurant in downtown Marlborough. The food was fast, delicious and too much to finish. Our server was very nice and efficient. That have very tasty and reasonably priced mocktails for the the designated drivers as well.

Was expecting a lot more than what they offered. Menu was very limited. 1/2 of the menu was sandwiches and apparently had run out of lobster which was another 1/4 of their menu. They post all these wonderful pics of beautiful entrees and apps on social media but are clearly misrepresenting themselves since it’s not available. Menu online isn’t updated to what they currently have. Food was ok, service was less than desirable and overall experience was underwhelming. Can’t say that I would go back.
