    Blackfish is a fun, energetic restaurant in Conshohocken. The food was very good and we love the fact that it is BYOB. We had a tuna appetizer that was very tasty. My wife had the Dorade and I had the scallops for dinner. Both were cooked really well and tasted great.

    I have been trying to visit Blackfish since they opened and was never able to successfully plan enough ahead of time to nab a reservation at a normal 5-7 pm dinner time. It was always completely booked during the times that I wanted to eat out with my wife. Finally, I was able to get a 6:00pm reservation and we only live 15 to 20 mins away, so I figured that I had aced it. What I forgot was that Conshy is a very popular area for the area restaurants on the weekends and parking is a nightmare! Arrived at about 5:45, but was not able to find adequate parking (I drive a mid size SUV) until about 6:15. Luckily, they held our table and we were able to dine. The food was very good, but our table was in kind of a weird spot in the back dining room. The place is small, so the tables are tight. The waitstaff did a good job to quickly and often navigate through the narrow passages between the tables and customers. My only complaint was that the place is very LOUD! Unfortunately, also that night, our server had lost her voice, so it was a challenge to understand her, but she did a great job and apologized for the inconvenience.

    I've only been to Blackfish twice, but both times were underwhelming. Food was overly seasoned and too salty across the board. I appreciate the intention behind the dishes, but less is more in some cases. I will not be going back and will likely not recommend it to friends.

    Great food experience but very noisy for a fancy restaurant. Overall I went as a one time experience so probably will not return and I tried the tasting menu. Very good, but a bit pricey.

    Excellent evening with friends at Blackfish as usual! The 4 of us shared all the delectable appetizers- the pink oysters were sublime. We also shared the 2 pastas and the delicious octopus and ended our meal with the scallops and the beef rib followed by a taste of the molten chocolate cake - all scrumptious!

    Blackfish is one of my favorite restaurants on this planet. The food is right there with Friday, Saturday and Sunday, LaCroix and Laurel, but at $105 for a 7-course tasting meal, you're paying about 1/2 of what you would pay at these other great Philly restaurants. And the fact that the restaurant is a BYOB, you are saving another $300-$400 dollars. The wait staff and overall ambience at Blackfish is not at the level of the previously mentioned restaurants. The wait staff may not arrange your silverware properly and it may be quite loud and lively at times (we had a table of 10 women sitting next to us and they were so loud, you thought they were having an Italian style family dinner), but I am more about the food, so this is not a big deal to me. Plus, our server was pleasant and very attentive. However, if you are looking for a full-on black jacket, upscale french service you aren't gonna get it here. But if you want Michelin quality food eating experience, grab a couple of your best bottles of red and white wines and come here for the 7-course tasting. It is spectacular and you'll be stuffed and you'll save a boat load of money compared to a high end restaurant in Philly. Enjoy!!

    First time at Blackfish following a recommendation from our daughter. One of the most amazing and memorable meals we’ve had in a long time! Miso/mushroom appetizer and Brussels sprouts salad both unique and incredible. For entrees we had scallops, chicken and dorade. All delicious and all prepared in a unique way that makes the experience special. The chicken in particular was tremendous. I didn’t know chicken breast could be so good!
