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

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!

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!

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.
