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.

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.

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.

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.

I’m a spoiled Pacific Northwest seafood fan. The food here is pretty decent, even for Seattle. Drinks were just okay. On a Saturday night the place was 3/4 empty, basically this is a lunch spot for Amazon workers. Dinner was $300 for 4 people, 1 drink each.

Years have gone by since we last ate at Flying fish. We thought we give it a try before a play. Sadly we weren't impressed. The food was just average and in a town of great fish we probably won't be back. People raved about the fish taco's and I just don't get it. But i do have friends that say my standard for fish taco's is high. The black cod was a little over smoked and my husband felt that it kind of ruined the delicateness of the fish. The desserts were very bland and not worth it. this makes me sad as we really did like this restaurant.

The food was fine but the service was poor. We had dinner on a Saturday around 5pm before our concert. There were a total of six tables with three servers total. Our server was not around. He was hanging out in the bar while our food was sitting on the kitchen counter waiting to be picked up. Finally another server picked it up and served it to us. Our server checked on us once and did not bother to ask if we wanted a second round of drinks. It took forever to get our check. Not impressed.

I had high expectations for Flying Fish. Unfortunately, they were not met. I made a reservation for 8:30 PM. When I arrived, I was greeting by a host/server/bar tender who could not find my reservation. Wearing 3 different hats, my service suffered tremendously. Waited nearly 10 minutes for water, wine took 15 minutes to get to my table. When it finally arrived I was half way through my appetizer. Ordered 1/2 dz of Oyster and Scallops. No reason wine should take longer than my wine considering each piece of shellfish has to be shucked by hand. Through careless action on behalf of the kitchen, there was a scallop stuck to the bottom of one of my shells, giving me 7 scallops. For my entree, I ordered Ravioli stuffed with artichoke and mushrooms. While flavorful, they were drenched in sauce that would not allow the stuff to actually stay inside of the ravioli. FOr dessert I went with the Tres Leches Bread Pudding, that tasted like french toast and covered in syrup. Not my ideal way to end a meal... with breakfast.

Beautifully decorated. Wish the music matched the decor. Not too into listening to lady gaga when I'm paying a hefty amount for dinner.

I have eaten here numerous times and have always had a great experience. After this visit, i won't go back. The quality of the food has seriously plummeted. The poke was previously just delicious - from the taste of it this time it was as if they took a bottle of Thai chili sauce and poured it over the tuna. Maybe our waiter was the only one working and they were short staffed - because I had to physically track him down to order things. We had a lovely time - but it did take 3.5 hours for the experience in part due to the slow service.
