The usual excellent service and food quality. Quiet, easy to have a conversation. Decor is nothing special but we go there for the food, which is high quality.

We especially enjoy the tasting menu experience at Blackfish. There was a foie brûlée and a fish crudo at our last experience that really were incredible. We will return again and again.

Amazing experience as always. Got the chef's 5 course and everything from the amuse bouche to the beignet was delicious. I recommend always doing the seasonal tasting menu at this BYO - you can tell the very friendly staff what you wouldn't like and they will accommodate happily. Pretty rare to find food of this quality outside of the city, where every ingredient of every dish is thoughtfully prepared. Excellent!

My second time at Blackfish, and just as excellent as the first. The tasting menu has twice been delightful; several small servings of the same kind of seafood. The several courses are just right to satisfy your appetite while providing multiple inventive treatments of the featured fish. Service is excellent with excellent pacing. Outside seating is available, but it is right on the sidewalk in a very busy section of Fayette Street.

Best decision of the week - selecting the 5-course tasting menu for dinner. From start to finish, every bite was delicious. And the perfect complement to the fabulous meal was the A+++ service. Thank you for a wonderful evening. We will be back!

We haven't been to Blackfish for awhile due to the pandemic but on a recent visit we found the food as delicious as always. We had the 5-course tasting menu and enjoyed it immensely. Can't wait to go back.

The Branzino with curry sauce was an outstanding dish. When we asked, the waiter told us the curry sauce was prepared over days and it showed with outstanding flavor. The wait staff was professional and attentive, but not overly attentive.

Everything was just perfect. We ate outside which is on the sidewalk and not ideal - but that aside, the food was perfection and the staff friendly, efficient and not overbearing. What a fabulous restaurant.

The only vegetarian option was bursts salad and a plate of grilled vegetables, so it’s not vegetarian friendly if anyone in your party has restrictions.

The food was delicious. And the chef was first class when instead of just warming up two of the fish entrees that were somewhat undercooked, he made two fresh platters. Pricing was a little steep given the small portions, but overall it was a very fine dining experience

This place is about the food. Minimalist decor - clean, simple, and nice, nothing to distract from the delicious and beautifully presented food. The noise level was distracting due to a large party next to us, which did detract from our experience unfortunately. And on a weeknight, the normally delicious bread had a texture that implied it had been reheated (it’s a highlight when it’s fresh). But it’s still my favorite restaurant in the area, and I will go back again and again…but maybe not on a weeknight.

Dinner was excellent. We’ve been out to eat outdoors post pandemic at several of our favorite restaurants and most have been just mediocre, but Blackfish did a great job.
We sat outside, and Fayette St has some noisy trucks but we were happy to be with friends, great food and a chilled bottle of Chardonnay.
