My husband and I went to Blackfish for an anniversary dinner. We'd been there many times in the past, however, this was first time since the pandemic. While it was good, I was disappointed that they didn't have my favorite entree on the menu which was the Short Ribs. Most of the menu items were for some type of fish. There were only 1 or 2 entrees that weren't fish and the same was true for the appetizers. I ended up getting the mushroom ravioli which was very good, however I didn't go there expecting to get ravioli which I could've gotten at many restaurants. I'm not sure I'll return as the restaurant doesn't have a good selection for people who aren't fish lovers.
I will say that the dessert I got which was creme brûlée was delicious. Also while we did go early, the room got very noisy and the ambiance wasn't the best.

Blackfish is the favorite restaurant of my wife and I. It was the last place we ate before the pandemic, and the first place we went after being vaccinated. WE LOVE THIS PLACE! Never had a bad experience there. It’s the only restaurant I can say that about!

My husband and I went for the first time this past Friday night. We reserved a sidewalk table outside. Propane heater worked well to keep us warm on a windy Spring evening in the high 50s. We ordered the five course tasting menu which was delicious. Since Blackfish is BYOB (which we love), my husband and I brought a bottle of white and a bottle of red which gave us options to pair to the tasting menu. Portions were perfectly sized. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We’ll be back.

The Lobster Tasting Dinner did not disappoint and was all that we expected and more! Each of the four courses varied from each other. The lobster risotto was my favorite. The biscuit served with the strawberry shortcake was not up to Blackfish standards...very dry...but, the whipped cream was soft and heavenly. The strawberries were lush and sweet. Service is attentive without being intrusive. It's nice to return and be remembered!

This is one of my very favorite restaurants and we travel widely (in normal times). This visit the wow factor was just not as present. Perhaps it is COVID but the entrees were lacking the gorgeous flavors we come for and which makes these prices worthwhile. We will go again to see if we returns! Wonderful service, lovely simple elegant ambience,

So good to be back and enjoy an evening at a favorite and treasure of a restaurant! We ate inside and seating was at 50%. The front room was set beautifully. Service was most attentive but, not invasive. Each of us ordered a different first course and I got my favorite smoked salmon w/crispy potato and friend egg. My husband ordered the oysters and the other guests had the ravioli and the shaved brussel sprout salad w/blue cheese. The main course ranged from the flounder to the monkfish. I loved the monkfish and would order it again and...again. The table shared the beignets and everyone had one form of caffeine or another. All in all, can't wait to return!

We had not been to Blackfish for 5 years. We looked forward to returning. Again very impressive. The 5 course tasting menu was perfect. Veronica our waitress was wonderful.
We look forward to returning ASAP even though we live 3 hours away.

Our favorite restaurant around! The service is always spectacular. I have never had a bad meal. Everything is delicious, fresh and oh so tasty! While we dine here often most recently went and ordered an appetizer not thinking to remind them I am gluten free. When Karla (I think that’s her name) brought our appetizer she remembered I am gluten free from before and had the kitchen prepare another appetizer. Cannot say enough about this place!

It had been 5+ years since we had visited Blackfish and it is as good as we remembered despite the pandemic restrictions. The tables were appropriately spaced and all staff were fully masked. The quality of the food was superb with subtle tastes for the most discerning palate. We appreciate that it remains BYOB and that the staff are engaging and efficient.

Blackfish never disappoints. Conshohocken and the western suburbs of philadelphia are fortunate to have such a great restaurant nearby. A small bone to pick was just that we had asked for a special dessert presentation, as it was a birthday- this was listed both on opentable and called into the restaurant day of- and this was forgotten. It wasn’t very busy, so it was a bit disappointing. Besides that, great meal.

Bland menu on Valentines Day and way overpriced for what was ordered. Smoked salmon and soup were good, but scallops were boring an undercooked. The beef brisket was ordinary and I’ve had better a the dinner. Service however was very good and professional and they tried to compensate us for inconvenience, which we did appreciate. Maybe we just caught them on a bad day.
