Have previously been several times with good results. This visit not as good. Seated at high top near bar which I had asked for due to recent hip surgery. The bartender was our waitress. She was overworked and forgot us throughout the evening. Very similar appetizers came out several minutes apart. My main course was luckwarm and not cooked to my specs. All in all a good seafood restaurant but not not all aspects of the organization are worthy of a very good review.
As usual, everything was spectacular! Excellent service, food was served hot and delicious. We sat at the high top tables near the bar and the the 3-piece band was playing. However, the noise level was fine. We could still converse without screaming. A little pricey, but worth every dime....
Food was great. Ambiance was cold. Very noisy. Service poor. Waiter was distracted and not attentive. Overpriced for what was delivered. Can find better food and dining experience elsewhere.
We have consistently had very good experiences dining at Fish. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the food is excellent.
The food was pretty pedestrian. Although the seafood was of good quality, flavor and seasoning was sorely lacking.
Food was excellent along with service
Fish has been a go-to spot for good dining for many years. Unfortunately for us it’s getting to be a same-o same-o place. Menu doesn’t change, salads are underwhelming but fish is still very good.
Excellent food and excellent service, never disappointed with this restaurant!
Saturday night was our second visit to Fish Restaurant & Wine Bar. It was worth the trip again. Excellent service, great wait staff and the menu and special items were fabulous. There was a live jazz band in the bar that made the evening dinner fun and lively. We truly recommend this restaurant for anyone who enjoys great food and music.
Great food and fine dinning. Best fried clams in the area. Able to cater to low carb. Nice quiet, classy place for a date. Would not recommend for small children.
We both enjoyed the $1.00 oysters with a glass of wine. The swordfish was delicious with a twist-roasted brussel sprouts and butternut squash.
The food was good. Service and ambiance were just fine. Wpuld try again because the food was good and problem may have been the server. Restaurant decor is nice enough but somehow it doesn’t shine.
Excellent food, service, and a live lounge band. Great Saturday night treat. Fish is an excellent seafood restaurant that with a few more selections would make it the best seafood restaurant west of Boston.
I have been taking out of town clients there for years and very much enjoyed it. This time was not great. Its started with nobody answering the phone that day so I could adjust my reservation. Voicemail said to leave a message - I left one and they "never got it." I asked for a quiet area of the restaurant and away for the band that is just too loud for the acoustics and size of the place. ( I knew that from the last recent visit.) So they put us right next to the kitchen which was also loud. I asked to be moved and they were very accommodating. We ordered and there was a mistake in the order. The waiter was polite and said he would fix it. Another staff member brought out one part of the additional food but not the rest. Our waiter never checked so we had to tell him the food was not right. He was not overly apologetic. Polite but busy. He said he would talk to management and came back saying they still charged full price for the original order he placed. So in essence there was no consideration for the error and then only partially fixing the error. The person never got what she asked for and no real care to appear concerned. Where was the manager? Maybe he/she could have come by and checked in? This is a nice restaurant with a nice menu. In years past it has been outstanding. It is reasonably expensive so very good service and food correctly cooked and delivered should be expected. Don't know what went wrong but it was a below average dining experience for this location. I will try it again but if this happens again, it will be off my list to take clients.
Excellent and attentive service!
We have been here over the years off and on. I can't remember ever having a bad meal here. Very consistent. Our server was excellent as usual. We sat in the dining area for this occasion. My wife and I have also sat in the bar area and also have had great service. There was a band playing in that area this time, but we did not stay to listen. Prices are on the high side, but if that's what they have to do to keep up the place it's fine with me! I look forward to returning in the near future.
The food was great, I have been there twice and will return again!
We met friends for dinner at Fish. Hadn't been there for a long a few years, but glad we returned. It was hard to choose a meal, as there were several appealing choices. Great for seafood lovers, but I believe they had other selections also. (I wanted seafood so didn't pay much attention.) We all really enjoyed our meals. One person wanted something prepared differently and they were very cooperative. A bit noisy, but we were able to talk easily. Server very pleasant. I would definitely recommend, especially for seafood lovers.
Wait staff very friendly and knowledgeable plus made excellent recommendations on raw bar, main course and dessert choices
Loved the diver scallops! The scallops were cooked just right, the polenta creamy. A really nice combination.
I had the dish before this winter and I wish it would stay on the menu for ever!
My h chose the tuna tartare appetizer which was beautifully presented with layers of avocado.
2nd time and certainly not the last. Have a great raw bar..would suggest the octopus appetizer..tender great sauce and complex flavors..the paella is non traditional with israeli couscous...again a real treat! Had a restful and tasty dinner
Excellent service and wonderful food! We were seated immediately (we had a reservation for a booth).
Second visit in eight days. Recommended Mediterranean Fish Soup to our friends from CT who were delighted with it as I am on each visit I make. I had the special ("mahi mahi pan seared" )- delicious. One of my friends had the haddock which I had had the week before and know it to be a delicious filling entrée. My wife loved the scallops. They all drank cocktails and I had a glass of red wine.....It was a great meal for all. The service from our waitress ("Trish"?) was perfect.
This is a gem in Marlborough. They do a great job with the atmosphere and the menu is very nice. Our service was excellent and the live music was a nice touch. I would recommend this for a special night if you do not want to head into Boston.
BEST fried food - not greasy. Bar staff is EXCELLENT!! My husband and I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant.
Awesome!!! Really delicious
Excellent service and amazing food. My other half and I love it here. 😀
The food and service was delicious. I had the diver scallops that were prepared beautifully with a great sear and my companion had the haddock special that had at least 5 vegetables on the plate. We were not impressed with the reception. They wanted to seat us right away in the bar area at a high top when there were clearly enough regular tables available-throughout the entire time we were there. We did get seated in the dining room but it was a little off putting.
Waitress was not very helpful.
If we are going to pay $10 for a glass of wine; we would like to
be "sold" on how good it is.
Couple of disappointments! Waited a long time for my oysters to come out. It wasn’t busy 5:45 on Saturday night. Bread served was stale. Got Sangria which was very good but served in small glasses which for $10 is a poor value. Both entrees were very delicious but once again portions left a lot to be desired. It’s a shame that small details are missed. Otherwise this would be an exceptional restaurant!
The service, food, and wine were outstanding. Kim and Lili were the best. Jessica has put together a great team. We will be back again and again.
Food was excellent, servers were helpful and knowledgeable about the menu options. This is a great place for an event or gathering
I have been here on multiple occasions. The service had always been great. But this last time, the server was not friendly and seemed like they were trying to rush us through dinner and out the door.
Wonderful food and ambiance. We did our valentines date and the decorations were really cute.
We went for Valentine's Day and had a reservation at 7:30. The service was great overall. We have been to other restaurants where Valentines Day has been a nightmare, but they have their act together at Fish.
They offered a $65 per person prix fixe menu since it was a special occasion. The food was good, but not spectacular. I had scallop ceviche (best dish of the night), seafood "paella" with couscous, and lemon mousse for dessert. My fiance had fried mozzarella, lobster ravioli, and a berry cobbler. The seafood dishes were great, wasn't a big fan of my dessert though. Also the portion on the fried mozzarella was too big - my fiancee got "cheesed out" and I had to finish it.
Overall it was a positive experience, but I didn't think the meal was a good value. When the total bill comes to over $200 for 2 people, I really expect to be wowed. I would definitely go back for a regular date night meal when you don't have to deal with the valentine's day upcharge.
Valentines dinner started out with good appetizers but the entrees were not good. Lobster ravioli were cold. Out of the only dessert that looked good and the ones we got were terrible.
Valentine's Day and we figured it might be busy and a little slow, but even accounting for that...inattentive service. My cocktail featured a thin slice of lime that looked like it was cut days before....brown down the edges. The shrimp on the Raw Bar Sampler were excellent as was the cocktail sauce.
Ordered from Prix Fix menu...the mozzarella app was big flat burgers of fried cheese and oily. Sauce was good. My filet mignon was ordered medium-rare and came out grey and overcooked with almost no pink...but worse, it had been cut in half horizontally and cooked like two burgers then dropped on top of mashed potatoes with gravy. Badly executed.
The lemon mousse dessert should have been a highlight, but had almost no flavor...no lemon flavor...and was like eating curing wallpaper paste. Disgusting. Had to sit with it for 10 minutes before I finally got up and demanded a manager.
Told the manager how disappointed we were. She argued that she watched the bartender slice the limes that morning. [That morning? Who slices fruit 10 hours in advance??]. She then unapologetic-ally snatched up the bill and returned it with a $54 credit with no explanation and walked away.
The only real positive was how very nice and engaging the bartender was....she was apologetic and encouraged us to try them again in the future for $1 oysters.
The final straw was when my date awoke in the night and was violently ill and in the bathroom literally for hours.
No way I'd go back there, ever.
Caveat, first visit being Valentine’s Day. Of course, very busy and not best sample. We waited about 10 minutes for our table, not outrageous given that we had 7:00 reservations. Service was timely, even with a full house, however, there were a few glitches. Twice offered bread, yet, it never appeared. We ordered a bottle of wine, (all wine prices seemed a bit high, but not outrageous) however, the server was working with a worn out corkscrew and she was clearly not practiced in removing a cork.
The food was fine. The menu was prix fixed and limited due to the day.
We will return on a quieter evening to give them a fair shot at a higher rating and a chance to outshine Legal Seafood.
We went for a Valentine’s dinner and was surprised to see that it was a limited menu and at a very high price of $65 per person. Think it’s great to offer a special but should offer other options. None of the options were anything we not great... wanted to get up and leave but was too embarrassed to do so. The meal was 200.00 with top and having one drink and as a result of being forced into it I will likely not go anytime soon..
Valentine's Day. It was a very expensive price fixe menu, $65 a person without wine. Entree choices were limited and frankly nothing appealed to us. Filet was overlooked, and accompaniments on the halibut were not great. Disappointing since we have always had great experiences here. Will go again, but not for this.
