Grillfish is our favorite restaurant for special occasions and whenever guest come to town. My family and I celebrated my birthday which is also MLKing Jr. Day. We with Happy Hour and the bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable . He suggested wonderful drinks and appetizers to get our party started. The hostess, I think her name was Jay, sat us at a wonderful table and proceeded to make me feel loved on my birthday, wishing me a "Happy Birthday" and welcoming us all to the restaurant . Our waiter, Anthony, was very attentive the entire evening and suggested wonderful pairings with our meal. His service was impeccable. Our dinner was fabulous. I had the shrimp scampi with an apple and pear salad. My husband had the mixed grill with maple brussel sprouts and my son had buffalo shrimp over linguine with spinach. The food was superb.
Afterwards, the waiter surprised me with a chocolate fudge cake with ice cream with a sparkler on top for dessert. I've shared this experience with all of our friends. It was an enjoyable birthday and I truly appreciate the attentiveness of the staff in making my celebration special!

I have dined at Grillfish many times, and had excellent food. This was not the case this evening. I ordered Fra Diavlo. It was all pasta, with no shrimp whatsoever. When I complained toward the end of my meal, they brought 4 shrimp in sauce. It was not the experience I had hoped for. I don't think I'll be returning.

We had an awesome birthday dinner with family and friends. 6 people, and everyone raved about their dinner. Great drinks, service, food and dessert options. We'll definitely be back and will recommend to friends.

We just got back from NEw Years Eve dinner. Went there due to the fact it offered regular pricing optional or priz fixe. However, Not so when we arrived. We are from out of town visiting so relied on open table to guide us. I have never gone wrong with an open table restaurant. Food was good, restaurant nice but the pricing was not what we expected. Since New Year’s Eve we went with it and did enjoy our night.

CAution: be clear on pricing before you go here. We were told prices were regular menu with option of choosing prix fixed menu or regular menu. Received a call prior to our arrival confirming our reservation and prices. When we arrived the only option was prix fixed and on top of which many items were inflated, again, no mention of this previously when made reservations several weeks in advance. Very misleading and bad way of doing business.

Sorry Grillfish but you fall short on integrity and customer service.

Friendly server, mediocre, over-priced food. Starter of spinach salad flooded with yogurt-ish water dressing; mains consisted of overly large portions of under-cooked salmon and swordfish accompanied by tepid mashed potatoes and equally tepid and limp kale sprinkled with Kraft parmesan cheese powder. New Year's Eve prix fixe menu (unpleasant surprise of which we were not informed when we made our reservation). When the "quality over quantity" memo was circulated, it didn't stop here.

My friends and I went for our New Years Eve dinner. The food was excellent and our server was amazing! The managers were very nice and organized. Overall, one of the best dining experiences I’ve had since I moved to this area.
