Great server, Slim. Poor wine list and selections...wine tasted opened/old, not vintage old. Food was good.
Absolutely delicious food! Our waiter was knowledgeable about the food and wine and so personable. The only downside for us was that the noise level was so energetic it was hard to reunite with friends by sharing stories because it was a tad difficult to hear each other.
Terrible meal. Food was oppressively salty. Party of three. We all had the same impression.
Service was okay. Ambiance okay. Food almost inedible. Could not taste the fish, just the salt.
Enjoyed the numerous fresh fish entrees - great desserts, great atmosphere, great sides
GrillFish is my favorite restaurant. I am from Philadelphia and I love when I can get to DC. That means a great meal, friendly staff and a warm atmosphere. Fan favorite since 1995
In town for the weekend and was looking for something fun and delicious ....this more than did the job !
We truly enjoyed our dinner at Grillfish. There were 5 of us and everyone loved their meal. We started off with mussels, oysters, and the risotto balls. They were all delicious. My husband loved the mussels. I particularly loved the risotto balls. The entrees chosen included the monkfish, tuna, salmon, mixed grill, and crab cakes. In addition to perfectly prepared seafood, Grillfish does amazing things with their sauces. The crab cakes were the only thing that would not get 5 stars, but that is due to my preference for Maryland style lump crab cakes. However, they were still very tasty and I enjoyed them. The rest of my party couldn't say enough good things about their entrees. We ended our meal by sharing the brownie sundae which was perfect. The only thing better than the food was the service. The host at the door seated us right away with a great table and a friendly welcome. Our server was wonderful and very helpful. All in all, a very nice evening. We will definitely be back!
We enjoyed our dinner very much. Great selection of fish. Husband had the mixed grill and I had the shrimp piccata linguine. Both dishes were prepared as ordered and served quickly. Service was excellent. Very nice ambiance.
Driving from Boston to Nashville and stopped in DC specifically so we could eat dinner at Grillfish. Yes, it's that good. Food, atmosphere and service.
Amazing service (I think my server’s name was Anthony)!! The decor and artwork were incredible. The fish was grilled to perfection. The appetizers were flavorful. The desert was delicious. I can’t wait to come back for more!
The food was good the ambiance is great I will go back again
My date and I had wonderful time at Grillfish. The food was great. The service was efficient.
We went there for Valentine's Day and really enjoyed the lively atmosphere, the responsive service, and the tasty food.
We were there for Valentine’s Day and had a superb experience! My boyfriend is a bit of a fussy eater and he said it was the best meal in recent memory. The service was perfect and the food was delicious and with generous portions. The value was exceptional with the $50/3 course option. We will be back soon!
12tg Anniversary dinner/pre Valentines Day
Very good great location very tasty. Seafood wonderful
Mahi mahi was very fresh.
Really good fish and fried oysters for a decent price. I'd go back.
The most impressive thing about Grillfish was the staff and specifically, the manager. I had requested a quiet table since one of my guests is hard of hearing. When we arrived at the restaurant they sat us in the front (the quietest table in the restaurant) even though our party had shrunk slightly from 4 people to 3 people.
I greatly appreciate that they had actually read and assisted my specific request.
I would recommend this restaurant.
The seafood chowder was unbelievably tasty and rich. Grill salmon Caesar salad was flavorful. Great ambiance, and friendly and accommodating management staff.
Average in just about every way - the best item in my entree was the fried cabbage (delicious). Appetizers were pricey but good. Entree mains were generally OK but nothing to write home about.
We had a 9:30pm reservation on a Sunday evening. Although the restaurant was closing at 10pm we were never rushed. We were greeted with a warm hello and had great service and food. We were celebrating a birthday and a cozy corner table was setup for
Us I will be back soon!
I don't get downtown for dinner all that often (living in Loudoun) but ate at Grillfish last year for restaurant week and had to make the return trip. The seared scallops tie for the best I've ever had (I'm very picky on scallops) and every item from salad/soup/entree/dessert was great. Just as before. If I lived closer, it would be my go-to for seafood downtown.
Cozy, European style bistro with good service and tasty dishes.
The customer service would have been a 5 but the waitress do not take her time nor explained anything to us at all other than that the food and the ambiance was wonderful
Save your money and don't go here. And if you do make sure it's not restaurant week or for a large party because they can't handle either.
Food was fresh & came out in a timely manor. Will definitely be returning!
Trying to scoot into the table in the corner was less than graceful. I almost asked to be seated elsewhere. Then my wine glass was dirty. But the quick response to replace my wine and the delicious food made up for my initial negative impression.
We were looking for a moderately-priced seafood restaurant where three friends could have a reasonably quiet meal and good conversation. Grillfish met all our requirements. The service was polite and efficient, as well as friendly. Wine list was acceptable, if not extensive. Fish was well-prepared and presented.
Our party of six had a wonderful time at Grill Fish this weekend. First, we were seated at a round table - brownie points for that right off the bat. Our server was attentive and went out of his way to accommodate special requests (with a genuine smile, no less). The food was fabulous; I had the grilled rockfish and it was perfection. The prices were reasonable and the entrees include a side dish of your choice. All in all, the restaurant exceeded my expectations and we will return.
