I was excited to come here, but the fish didn't taste fresh. Maybe had been frozen? There was no flaking involved. And our server didn't make eye contact with us and made us think he had somewhere else to be. But no one was in there. The martini was excellent, as was my date's drink. I was just hoping for something more.

Solid choice for lunch and fairly easy to get a reservation! Love their poke bowl!

This was our first visit to Flying Fish, and we actually decided to leave before ordering any food. We'd reserved a table for our anniversary dinner. In spite of having reserved, and the many empty tables in the dining room, they first only offered us a table in the bar, so we asked for something in the main restaurant. Then they offered us a table way in the back corner near what looked like an open kitchen; we instead asked for one of the front booths that looked more in the main flow. Once seated, we looked at the menu. It was so ordinary for its above average price level that neither of us could find anything pleasing enough to justify staying. Also there were no "daily specials" to compensate; this was due, they said, to getting ready for Valentines Day -- two weeks away! Regretfully, we left and decided to take our chances with a restaurant that we know and like downtown, where we ended up having an outstanding anniversary dinner experience. I will never be back to the Flying Fish. Deficient both in terms of customer service and menu offerings.

I was with three business colleagues. Our first time. We all commented on the setting and the youthful clientele and guessed, no offense, many were amazon techies who were enjoying themselves, as we were. Splendid Caesar and house salads. When one of our party unacquainted with Northwest cuisine ordered her salmon "well done," the server patiently explained that the chef would question him to make sure he heard correctly and ask him to come back to the guest to make sure. The only negative note: she ordered coffee after the meal. The French press coffee had a lot of grounds, and the cream on the table curdled. Server made everything right.

The restaurant was recommended as a favorite but we were disappointed. While nothing was bad, nothing was great either. We did enjoy their signature dungeness crab but not sure the effort was warranted. We had the smaller, happy hour portion as part of a tasting menu. It was tasty but very greasy, very messy and very little to eat.

New Year’s Eve prixe fix menu was insanely overpriced for just ok food.

Had dinner for New Year’s Eve. Food was good. But maybe not worth the price as it was a prefix menu and could only choose from a few options. Looked at menu prices for a normal night and was more reasonable. The service was above and beyond. Really made dinner feel special. Overall a great experience.

Nice meal with good service. For those used to the "old" Flying Fish, you will be disappointed. If you approach it as a completely different restaurant it is fine. Note to kitchen, Halibut was over cooked.

From the raw oysters, ahi poke, calamari to the salt and pepper crab, the food was excellent. Service was on point too

Although I have loved Flying Fish for many years, taking many people there because of reliably excellent affordable seafood, my experience recently was a big disappointment. First, service was incredibly slow. The waiter mentioned a "large party" as though that was an excuse to underserve my table. Then we were shorted on our 'dozen' oysters, and were questioned when we pointed it out. The seafood was barely warm when served and my salmon was quite fishy and did not seem fresh. The dessert menu is not even worth a perusal. I hope Flying Fish can recapture it's past magic. Perhaps I will return, but likely not.

Warned waiter to not over cook halibut dinners. But fish was delivered well done and dry. Sent back for redo. Second serving was wonderful. Waiter handled situation perfectly.
