Wine list for bottles very limited. Ordered something more expensive than I would have pr ferrd because there was no range between $50 and $75. Value otherwise excellent for food but this lowered my value rating above.
A nice neighborhood place with solid food-- Nice brunch spot
Overall it was very good, a few points of feedback on the food but would definitely go back or recommend. This was one of an increasingly few restaurants where the seating was set up so that you are not sitting right next to or on top of someone else. I am willing to pay a premium on the prices to have some sort of privacy, so this was a big plus for me on a date. Secondly, if I go out to eat or certainly if I spend a decent amount on a meal in the city I want it to be something that would be hard for me to recreate on my own or if your having a night out see something that comes out with a bit of a wow factor and gets you excited. I definitely got that just looking over the menu options, but also visibly was excited to dig into the smoked sable fish appetizer as soon as it hit the table, very enjoyable flavors too. The paella exciting as the sablefish when it hit the table, but it did taste great. The portion on the paella and what you ended up getting with the sablefish appetizer, along with the branzino entrée portion was deserving of 4 stars on value.
The critique I have is on overall taste/flavor for certain dishes. I was missing something on the branzino and the catalan shrimp appetizer, both me and my date agreed the branzino was probably the worst thing we tried. I thought it was just bland myself. Sort of a charred flavor on the outside more so than just a grilled flavor, I usually look forward to grilled fish skin taste but this was sort of a dry/bland to me. Maybe it just did not marry well in my mouth with all the other things I tried that were perhaps stronger, I'm not sure. I felt the same way about the shrimp, nothing really said wow, just larger shrimp I wouldn't reorder unlike the sable or the paella. But overall, very good meal and the environment for the date was perfect. I think if all the entrees had the same sort of wow factor as the sablefish appetizer, this could definitely be one the best or my favorites in the city.
My wife and I consider ourselves foodies. We enjoy most food, but when food is particularly good, we have “moments”. We had several “moments” enjoying the food at Fish Tag. Wow! We booked an open table 15 minutes prior, because of reviews and it was the last table for a couple hours. Did not disappoint. With all the restaurants in NYC, we usually never eat at the same restaurant twice... with rare exceptions. We’re committed to make Fish Tag one of those exceptions. So good. We’ll be back.
We had a group of 9 with three generations from 30 to 80. The staff was organized and attentive, even when we swapped seats. The smoked fish was fabulous and the wine was reasonably priced.
Great time for a get together pre- wedding.
excellent food and service. only objections is the noise level is a bit too loud. Will definitely be back!
Affordable and diverse brunch menu options: from smoked fish, to various egg recipes, to a pretty good lamb burger. Food is quite tasty without being mind-blowing - felt pretty good value for money. Inattentive and slow service in a nearly empty restaurant undermined the experience
Fish taco were great, but everything was just way too slow.
Delicious food, relaxing ambience and quiet.
Unfortunately the place was uncomfortably cold which distracted from our enjoyment.
