I was taking a stay-cation in the hotel around the corner. Grillfish was convenient and walking distance. I was seated promptly and spacious. My waiter offers meal suggestions with a short wait to enjoy delicious food.
Tried out the $1 oysters and it was great! Server was great also!
The atmosphere was nice and intimate. The appetizers and drinks were amazing. My husband had the trout and said he liked it. I had the lobster Mac n cheese with a skewer of shrimp, scallops, Mahi Mahi, salmon, and swordfish. My meal had absolutely no flavor at all. It tasted as if there was no seasoning or herbs at all. They do give you a sauce but the sauce was not enough to flavor the food. Will return once more just to give them another chance as the remaining experience was pleasant.
Soup was just OK. They should indicate on the menu that the California roll is fried, which was a bit odd.
Great food, and especially for the price. Would not hesitate to come back again.
Great, tasty food! Very attentive excellent service.
The buffalo shrimp are amazing. Lobster roll is also delicious.
Brought my Girlfriend for her Birthday and everything was perfect. The server was amazing and polite and the food was beyond amazing 11/10. Definitely will pick this spot again next time
Great as always. Giver calamari, yummi.
Fish was delicious and they were very nice about accommodating my dietary needs.
Awesome oyster Happy Hour!
The server didn’t seem very knowledgeable about anything. Any question we asked about the menu, she said she would need to go ask her manager or the kitchen because she wasn’t sure. However, the manager was very nice, and the food was great.
Katie had excellent customer service and was very knowledgeable. Thank you
Good food, good service, good location and it was clean.
had the scallops. Tasted funky. I wasn’t sure until I got home and realize they def tasted like ammonia. I paid for it later that night in the bathroom.
The fish was grilled and really good tho. Also oysters could be cleaner.
The best Mahi Mahi Tacos & Shrimp Scampi! Very welcoming. I would definitely recommend! The price is pretty decent as well. The oysters were cleaned perfectly. Overall 10/10
Great food. Wonderful attention from the owner who was very enthusiastic and accommodating!
Beautiful place. Amazing service. Would dine again.
Very happy to be back at Grillfish. The expanded patio seating is spacious and comfortable. The quality of the seafood remains excellent and the service as usual is warm and friendly. Cannot wait to return!
Grillfish's patio is just delightful - nicely lit, comfortable seating, felt very safe and socially-distanced. They just reopened and it is such a treat to have that kind of dinner in the West End. Oysters were perfect, standout appetizer was the calamari. Small plate grilled octopus was a real showstopper. My guests had squid ink pasta with crab - excellent. The surf and turf, with a perfect amount of shrimp, came with one of the best steaks I've had in a long time. So nice to have Grillfish back!
The food was delicious. Our server recommended drinks and dishes that did not disappoint. We can’t wait to return and recommend to friends.
Delicious! That is all. Will be back.
Great service, good food, lots of options
If you like fish, this is the place to go. Service was great .
Thank you for the review.
It was good enough but I wouldn't go back again. Despite the price, it's really not a fine dining restaurant. If you're a foodie & like great seafood, you might be disappointed like me. Or maybe I should've stick to my gut vs listening to the waiter's recommendation, which is mediocre at best.
Food was amazing! Get there early, as fish items are delivered daily with a certain amount of inventory. If your a late night reservation your favorite fish option may be sold out.
Thank you for the review.
Food and staff excellent! We all enjoyed our meals, beverages AND desserts!!
Thank you and I am glad you saved room for one of our homemade desserts.
Great place for Friday night date night. Food is always amazing and service is great. This time we had the seared scallops and they were some of the best I have ever had. Also tried the rainbow trout and it was cooked perfectly. Wine pairings rounded out a perfect dinner. Will certainly be back soon.
Thank you so much for joining us, and I hope we will see you again soon.
Chris was our server, he was fantastic. The lobster over linguini was delicious!
Thank you for the review, and I so glad your experience was so enjoyable.
Good eclectic atmosphere and tasty fresh food. Good service.
I have been eating at this restaurant for over 20 years, never disappoints! Fish is always fresh and delicious and service is wonderful too! Thank you to the Alfredo and his team!!
Thank you for your loyalty over the years, and I am so glad to see we are still one of your go-to spots.
Great food and service. We were told we had the best seats in the house and they were right. Can't wait to go again.
Good food good wine good service. Just a little too dark, could use better candlelight at tables
Very good meal, but was with a large party and they crammed us around small tables and up against the wall.
I am glad to hear about the meal, and thank you for the feedback. We will look into it so that we can be more accommodating to large parties.
Great food. Great service. And you can talk. Ideal for a business lunch.
Fryer wasn’t working and had to keep reminding our server of things we still needed or had ordered. Made my drink incorrectly the first time.
I am so sorry to hear about your experience, and thank you for taking the time to write, because we value feedback to always help us improve.
Food was GREAT! Our server was awesome, patient & friendly.
Thank you for the review and kind words.
Food and service was delicious but my coworkers trout was full of pin bones, which was an unpleasant surprise.
We are sorry to hear that you had a negative experience and appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback. Grillfish take reviews very seriously as it is our priority to ensure all guests receive fresh seafood and an outstanding dining experience.
Super romantic atmosphere, excellent food and service. Just a wonderful date spot downtown!
