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.”

It was are 2nd time there. This was our 2nd bad experience. The restaurant was empty and they still
messed up our food order. The food was good and our server was nice. My husband was not happy with the order being messed up. The girl who brought out our food to us wanted me to start eating my food while they made my husband order. Not acceptable! Probably would not eat there again!

Everything is amazing here. I went here to celebrate an anniversary and we were there the perfect amount of time, - the entrees did not feel rushed and they were truly delicious. I love the concept of this restaurant, - the rotating menu has awesome choices and the presentation of the food is impressive! I am so happy to find a place we both enjoy that's not in the city. Definitely going there again!!

Staff was very helpful and courteous. Food was very good. Space is tight,& therefore a bit noisy. We had beet salad and snails as apps. Both were delicious. We shared the risotto and that was fabulous & plenty big. Took some home. Entrees were duck and fish. Duck was good not great. Fish was very good. Beignets are out of this world!

Food is always unique and delicious. Tables are very close together and it was VERY busy on Saturday night. The noise level made it hard to converse. I would only go during the week from now on. Wait staff were helpful and polite

The food was amazing and our server was terrific !
The worst part of the evening was when we were seated and the hostesses said- we have another reservation 1 hr and 45 min from now so are you ok to be finished by then? While I recognize the need to turn tables , this approach needs work. I don’t think the intention was to rush us or the other tables but it set the wrong tone for the evening .
Thank you
Kristi

We've been to Blackfish a few times before, and every time we swear that we need to come here more often. It is just as good or better than the BYO's we frequent in Center City but much closer to where we live. I had the escargot for an appetizer and the Scallops for my entree. Both dishes were well prepared and tasty! We'll be back more often...

The menu looked so interesting and creative that we could not wait for our dinners to come.

Unfortunately, although the presentations were outstanding all 4 of our entrees as well as one appetizer

soup, were oversalted. What a disappointment !

We went to dinner with another couple. Food was excellent! Service was great too! Noise level was perfect as we were able to successfully chat without screaming at each other! Beautiful plates, each looked like a work of art. A nice mix of guests from girls night out, families with kids & dates too. I’d def go back.

Food and service were excellent as usual. The service was especially attentive and I failed to get the server’s name. She was very friendly, informative, and helpful with suggestions and variations of menu items. It was a wonderful experience after a great but long day made better by the kitchen staff and our server.

Wait was way too long (reservation for 8:30, didn’t sit til 9:15). Too much red meat for tasting menu, would have enjoyed more seafood instead. But the first 3 courses were wonderful! Friendly staff!

Blackfish never cease to amaze and please the taste buds. My husband and I enjoy and every time we dine here. The pairing of the food is superb. We tell all out friends and family to come and enjoy, it’s worth every dollar spent.

The fact that we had to wait 40 minutes in a crowded vestibule for a table , got the evening off to a poor start. I feel that when you make a reservation at a restaurant that charges $95 per person on Valentine’s Day, they should NOT overbook the restaurant. They know how many customers they can efficiently seat and serve properly and that should be their priority! Very very disappointed. If you are going to charge top dollar for your food, then treat your customers with respect!

We made the mistake of going on Valentine’s Day. It was jammed and only 4 courses pre determined vs the normal fare. Still good but I wouldn’t go on a holiday again.

Valentines Day. The food was excellent. The service was a little slow with the course transitions, which was probably due to a kitchen backup with the full house capacity. Still, overall great dinner.

Food was great but the service was very slow. Not sure why it took so long for service- we waited for our server and between every course. It was a Wednesday and place was not busy.

A very good meal. This is a small store front Restaurent with very little ambiance. Because it is a small place, the hostess will tell you that they want you out within one and a half hour, at least on the weekend, which is a bit tight. The one issue that distracts mostly from the experience is the difficult parking situation in Conshohocken on Saturday night.

We did their restaurant week deal which was only $39 for a three-course meal. Everything was really good and not a bad value for 3 courses from this fancy restaurant. It was also BYOB which is always much appreciated.

Attended new years eve event. Service was very accommodating but "stretched." They seemed to have trouble keeping things moving and it took quite a long time. Ambience is certainly not romantic or fancy but this is a great place for good food in a casual environment. As with many restaurants, busy event nights can be challenging.

The very pricey New Year’s Eve prix-fix Menu was nice, not extensive and nothing special. Of the 4 courses, the appetizers were the best, Tuna Tartare and Smoked Salmon atop a fried egg.
The service on the other hand was outstanding! Unfortunately there was no indication on OpenTable that Blackfish was a BYZiB and the local wine shop closed at 4:30.
