We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary. We originally had a birthday reservation in March but it was canceled due to closure for Covid. We rescheduled for our anniversary in November and it was wonderful. First time dining and we will be back!

Consistent excellence describes dining at Off the Hook. The service team is personable and efficient. The food is well-prepared, well-presented, and delicious. Possibly the area where this restaurant has most improved over the past few years is its wine selections.

The service was pretty good, but the food was bland. My wife ordered shrimp with vegetables. The sauce tasted like something out of a microwaveable dinner. The vegetables were so overcooked and had such little flavor we’re pretty certain they were frozen. I’m amazed this place thinks they can charge such an exorbitant amount of money for bad food. The quality of the fish was good, but their chef and kitchen staff needs replaced. Stay away.

Arrived at 7:20 for our 7:30 reservation and were seated at a tiny table with folding chairs in the corner 30 minutes later. I had made a reservation for 3 people, 1 being a seat for our 9 month old because we bring a chair for her that goes over a regular dining chair. I will say that we go out to dinner often and although our infant doesn’t order a meal, we make sure we patronize local eateries and tip servers as if we are eating for 3. That being said, an extremely disorganized hostess station made a judgement call that we only needed a tiny table for 2. They weren’t able to handle the volume of parties trying to be seated, so I’ll reiterate - a bad first look. We asked the manager if we could have a larger table, perhaps at a minimum, 3 chairs that we reserved. It wasn’t until our food was coming out of the kitchen that was honored. Needless to say, we didn’t order for 3 tonight after that experience and we got out of there as quick as we could because we were extremely uncomfortable. We typically have good things to say about this restaurant, but this was a highly disappointing experience. And I would go as far to say this restaurant is rude and judgmental if you bring children. Not a good look.

We often go to Off the Hook for special occasions, this particular visit was for my dad’s birthday. The food is always delicious, my mom hates all fish and is always able to find something to satisfy, but their fish options are always outstanding. Their handling of COVID is great, tables are well distanced. We ate ‘outside’ on their patio that is enclosed but can be made open air. The fireplaces were lit and it was very comfortable for an early November dinner. All in all very pleased.

This is my favorite restaurant! My husband and I usually visit four to five times a year. The food is always excellent! I never liked crab cakes until I tried them at Off the Hook. The sampler platter appetizer is awesome. My husband had the salmon sliders which was offered as a special lunch item. Ginger slaw and peppered bacon were on top of the salmon. He said they were delicious. The sweet potato fries that accompanied the sliders were great. The pumpkin spice latte dessert was back on the menu for the Fall. It is absolutely amazing. We always love the food here!

Our waiter Steven was great. He walked is through all the specials, was very kind, helped me decide between two entree options and gave us enough time to finish each course. Highly recommend the crab cakes, swordfish and tuna. So delicious! I had cappuccino after dinner that I loved and the desserts were amazing as well.

Third time here and pretty much the same as before. Decent food, not great, not bad, but a terrible value. Started with the calamari which was cooked well and was plentiful. Came with a lemon aioli which I thought was OK, but the wife didn't like it at all. Too tart for her, but I thought it was the best part of our meal.

The selection of fish at this place IS amazing and most have 3-4 different sauces and preparations which is really nic.

Anyway, she got the daily special. Seared scallops which were good, but it came with a chunk of pork belly the size of 2 decks of cards. Completely overwhelmed the dish. Even then the pork belly lacked flavor and the presentation looked terrible. I got the Caribbean style swordfish. While the swordfish was cooked well and was juicy, it completely lacked any jerk flavor and the pineapples again overwhelmed the dish.

That and 2 drinks was $130 before tip. Unfortunately, we won't be back which is too bad as we really wanted to like this place since it's so close. 3 strikes and you're out.

Service perfect, as usual, but fish tasted a little strange. Didn’t have halibut, which had just gone out of season, I guess, so we ordered different types. Usually outstanding, but this time disappointing.

It was our Anniversary so we wanted to try some place new. We live in Mt Lebanon so traveling to Warrendale was something that we hadn’t done before. We ended up having to wait for people to leave before we could be seated so the owner compensated us by giving us an appetizer and our 1st round of drinks on the house which was lovely. The food and service were outstanding!!! We will absolutely will go back again! All of the fish was fresh and their preparation was the best that I’ve ever had at a restaurant!

Food was excellent but too much for two people! They handled social distancing well but need to enforce those who wear masks incorrectly. Otherwise an excellent experience!!!
