Blackfish, the flagship BYOB of Chef/owner Charles "Chip" Roman, offers seafood-centered, progressive American cuisine with French influences.

Guests can enjoy a daily changing a la carte menu, as well as tasting menus ranging from five-to-seven courses.

Blackfish opened in 2006 and has since been named “Best Restaurant” in Philadelphia Magazine’s 2011 “50 Best Restaurants” issue, calling Blackfish “flat-out fantastic; sophisticated without being overbearingly avant-garde, pretty and fresh without being precious; the perfect restaurant of the moment.”

    The restaurant was crowded even at 6:30 PM - seating was tight- but we were warmly welcomed and seated right away. Service was superb! Our meals (bouillabaisse, scallops) were delicious.

    Blackfish has never disappointed us. Seafood was incredibly fresh and well prepared. And the presentation was stylish. I had the tuna tartare appetizer and my husband the Scottish salmon. We both chose the dorade for our entree which was creative. I love that they pour the sauce at the table which kept the fish skin crunchy. The deserts were excellent. And it’s BYOB!

    Food was solid as usual. Diners gave high marks to the short ribs, duck breast, and dorade. Starters were good as well. Service was a bit on the slow side, and the ambience needs more attention. Still a great BYO option in Conshy.

    I was pleasantly surprised by Blackfish. The food was so fresh and the flavors are excellent! For appetizers we had the crudo and smoked salmon. So, so good!! I had the dorado for my main course and my husband had the bouillabaisse. The flavors of both dishes was incredible. As stuffed as I was, I still ordered the beignets because they looked so good. Glad I did. Nice and warm and the dipping sauces (especially the berry one) was worth overstuffing myself. Don’t want to not mention how great the service was. I will definitely be back!

    Best restaurant on the Main Line. Did I mention that it is also still BYOB (time to bring the really good bottles)? Or that it is very fairly priced for this very high quality at this time of inflationary insanity?

    Blackfish continues to be our favorite restaurant in the N. West Philly Suburbs. Frankly few are even close. This Saturday they were jammed and running behind which led to an unusual 30-minute wait. Staff was stretched. If you have been there, you know the food overcomes most anything and Saturday no exception. Oysters were really good (and I know that comes from nature and but freshness and the champaign foam sauce was impeccable). I have a really unique shaved brussel sprout salad which sound oxymoronic, but it was really good - key word again is FRESH. Craizins, apple, nuts and blue cheese on shaved sprouts with a house dressing - will order it again. I had the constant short rib and the Mrs. the scallop dish of the day. Not desert folks but I am sure they too are awesome. Our favorite special place remains Blackfish. Happy holidays, Merry Christmas and 2023 well wishes! G

    We had an A+ meal last night at Black Fish. Beginning with oysters, tuna and Brussel sprout salad. Our friends sampled the dorado, duck, bouillabaisse, chicken. We ended with house made donuts! Service was very, very good! I return this Wednesday to celebrate a friends birthday. Looking forward to a second great meal this week. Happy to have Black Fish in our backyard! Parking just improved with the new garage across the street! Bonus! Thank you Black Fish!
