Everything was great except I ordered the Delmonico Steak......Tasted good but the temperature was as if it had been sitting (the potatoes were piping hot, the steak was not)......I took the steak home......The cost on the menu was different than the cost I was charged ($98.00 verses $72.00 on the menu). And, they charged $32.00 for half of a lobster tail.....Moreover, it did not look like a 20 oz steak (I paid $120.00 for a bone-in ribeye and it took me 3 days to eat it)...... Other than that, I had a good time.....

Beautiful restaurant. No children’s menu so we opted for mac and cheese for our 4 year old. It was vermicelli (spaghetti) pasta with parmesan cheese. Our child would not eat it because the parmesan was too strong. I had 2 small crabcakes and slaw ($41). My daughters had shrimp and grits. My husband had a salad. Way over priced for the food we received.

The servers and staff were uninspired and kind of made you feel as if you were imposing on them, The food was not up to the standard you’d expect from Jose Andres restaurants and the meal was really quiet expensive considering the mediocre food and lackluster service. I won’t hurry back

We were excited to visit this restaurant, but left a little disappointed. Prices were very high, much more than comparable dining locations. Main courses were okay (trout, lobster roll, filet and lobster), but the vegetable dishes were really good (mushrooms, potatoes, brussel sprouts). If it were not for the vegetables, I would rate this dining experience as not good, but those side dishes, while expensive, were exceptional. Cocktails were very good also.

Very overpriced for "meh" seafood. We ordered the seafood tower for $150 and it had more ice and shells than actual seafood. I had the Rockfish and it was ok but nothing to write home about. I could have made it better myself. The mushroom appetizer was simply unappetizing. The New England clam chowder was more like a broth than a chowder,. Lobster Roll had more mayo than lobster. The waiter tried to upsell us on wine. it was almost comical. Hush puppies arrived after the meal. At least those were comped. I had indicated when making the reservation that we were there for a special event and several of the staff asked us about it, but no one acted upon it. We weren't necessarily expecting anything, but when the hostesses and wait staff all comment on the occasion, you start to suspect that something special might be provided. That did not happen. For what we spent, we expected a lot more. If the food had been outstanding, it might have been worth it, but it was not.

This is truly one of my favorite restaurants. I love everything about it. I love knowing that I eat at a restaurant by Jose Andres. I have been eating at his restaurants for some time now but I have to say this is my favorite out of them. The service is spot-on, the food is delicious and the drinks are wonderful. On this visit we ate outside. Great view including a bald eagle flying over.
First thing I do is make sure that Cristhian is working. He is the best! Truly. He loves working for Fish and can tell you everything about it and it's sister restaurants. I always get the cobb salad, mac and cheese and tractor pulls. This time I added a couple of items - the best mashed potatoes I have ever put in my mouth. My Mamaw would love these. They are the ultimate. Another southern lovin' must - the banana pudding. It's deconstructed. The best part of it - the caramelized bananas. Try the shrimp and grits and the salmon steak as well. It's a hearty party.

I dont normally like to leave negative reviews but I have to tell you.
There wasn't a single thing we enjoyed about our meal. Our drinks were terrible. I had the air salt Margaritta and it was not evenly balance with tequila vs. the mix. The crab mac-n-cheese was swimming in grease, making it look and tasty unappetizing. The scallops were overly salted. Between the salt air on my drink and salt on my scallops, I felt like my blood pressure was elevated only because of all the salt content. Overall, we spent more than $200 and walk away hungry and unsatisfied.
We will not be returning.

The view of the water is lovely! The waiter never mentioned the tasting menu--I was aware of it from the website. He then said they had it, but he couldn't tell us what was on it as the chef makes it up. He later came back and gave us a general list of items that would be included. My husband ordered the tasting menu and enjoyed it. I stuck to the ala carte menu. The mussels were AMAZING--however, my order was delivered to a different table so they had to take those back and start over again. No one bothered to let me know this, until I specifically asked what was taking so long as my husband had been served several of his tasting courses and I had yet to receive anything. Drink refills were slow in coming and it was not very crowded.

Mixed review here. Absolutely delicious food! The cheddar biscuits were hot and cheesy, shrimp and grapefruit appetizer was out of this world, fresh king crab appetizer with remoulade sauce was perfect, broiled whole lobster and the sautéed rock fish entrees quite memorable, and presentation in every dish was 5 Star. There was affordable and delicious Spanish wine to pair with all bites.

So the downside - service was SOOOOOO SLOW! Our waitperson was lovely when we saw her but there were loooong stretches where she was no where to be found. Other tables - even large parties - would come and go and we were still there! Our wine was delivered long after our appetizers were served and almost gone. Said they had to chase down the sommelier - really?! We had to flag her down for the dessert menu and decided against it as we thought it would take way too to be served. We had to get our bill from another waiter just cleaning tables near by. We just had 2 apps. A small plate of clams and a main dish. We were there over 3 hours! We felt just left and forgotten most of the time.
We will try again.

I love every José Andres restaurant I have ever been to, but it is safe to say that Fish is not up to his standards. The service was laughable. 20 min to take orders etc. there seemed to be a number of managers and wait service but they just couldn’t seem to get it down. Disappointed to say the least.

I love this restaurant so much. I could stay for hours. The food is delicious, the drinks are fabulous and the service is over the top. My favorite and best server in the world is Chris (Christian). I always make sure that he is there. Everyone is fantastic. I love the Tractor Pulls. The cheese biscuits are light, fluffy and southern sin. They are served with a light whipped butter. I always get the best mac and cheese. It is not like any mac and cheese you will ever have. When they have the hot corn soup, I get it. It is a creamy soup with a kick of hot sauce. I could drink it. I always get the cobb salad. It is beautifully arranged and always fresh. I love it. My family is regulars at the restaurant so you will see "always" a lot. On this visit I got the banana cream pudding (after sampling my sister's on our last visit) and it is a deconstructed pudding that is amazing! My Mamaw used to make the best but this goes beyond with caramelized bananas. The after dinner wine suggested by Chris was perfect. I suggest the salmon steak. Always a fresh thick cut. If you are lucky you will get to know the incredible staff at Fish.

Dissapointed is the word. Expectations were for great food paired with great service. While the food was good $28 for a 6 inch piece of king crab was a little pricey. Our server forgot one of our orders and we had to flag her down to pour more wine which was in an ice bucket away from the table.

We scheduled our day at the casino to celebrate a 60th and 89th birthday. The steak house was closed on Mondays and the birthday boy and girl wanted steaks. In fairness to the restaurant, we should have known better than to order steaks at a fish restaurant...but they offered a $72 ribeye so we thought we were in good hands. Upon ordering, they told us it would be about an hour to bring the meat to room temperature and cook. After the long wait we sent both steaks back twice before it was cooked to medium...we went from rare to medium rare to pink as we had ordered. The sides were excellent, especially the brussel sprouts and asparagus. The scallops and desserts were good. The staff were very accommodating, our thanks to them. Overall it was not a good experience, we were hoping for a more special birthday celebration.

Was looking forward to dinner here, as the menu looked great. Staff were very nice and worked hard to accommodate us and, I noticed, did the same with other tables. Big problem was the food.

Tuna tartar for starter. Tasted like someone had accidentally dumped a load of salt on the dish; so much so that there simply was no taste of tuna. May as well have been jello! Mac and cheese tasted ok, but nothing special. Crab cakes were also sub-par. We were pre-warned by waiting staff that they would be small; frankly I don’t care about that. The reason given was the large amount of crab in the cake. The reality was quite different; hard to find the crab among the filler. I make my own at home, I am far from a gourmet chef, but mine are far better with much more crab lump.

Overall very disappointed. Food was sub-par; would have seemed reasonable food for a Golden Coral, but at these prices and the reputation, I was deeply disappointed.

Love the cocktails and lobster Mac and cheese - out of this world! Lobster roll should have more lobster and crab cake unremarkable. We were celebrating my husbands birthday and this was my 5th visit to Fish. Convinced this is my least favorite Jose restaurant.. love Chino Chicano, Zaitayba and Jaleo.. believe Fish has a captive clientele as a result of MGM

We were very disappointed in the quality of food we both had "whole fish" the server was not attentive and should have explained that the entire "head and eyes" would be plated on the red snapper, also I had cocktail in all my years of glassware I never seen minature martini glass with price tag of $16.00 . Our total bill was $197.00 for dinner for two. My husband was very disappointed and we will never go again we were celebrating my birthday.

Great food and atmosphere. We sat right outside the patio and the view was beautiful as the sunset. The crab cake and cod fritters were good appetizers. We enjoyed the side dishes the most though we wish we knew how ample they were. The Brussel sprouts were amazing as were the mushrooms with honey aioli. Main course was rock fish and salmon fillet. The rockfish was perfectly cooked and delish, the salmon was good but I won’t order it again. There is a sommelier to assist with your wine choice, nice touch and at the end of the night they sent us a complimentary dessert! It’s a great option for a date night or dinner with friends. We’ll return.

It was our first visit and I loved the atmosphere. It's really a beautiful, modern space. I love that the outdoor bar opens up to the full terrace at the MGM. I'd like to hang out there on a nice day! The food was uneven. My rockfish was absolutely spectacular -- one of the best I've ever had. Oftentimes, rockfish is overcooked but this was perfect. My husband ordered the lobster roll and it was good, but not amazing. My friend ordered the mushroom jambalaya and it was a huge serving -- enough to feed the table of 4! Unfortunately, it wasn't very flavorful. My other friend ordered the whole fish and it was good. The mac & cheese side was delish. I'd stick to the fresh fish offerings. Also, they have a fabulous wines by the glass menu.

My son and I have been to Fish a few times and always order "Jose's Way", a tasting menu of about 10 dishes that vary from season to season, with some being offered most of the time. The variety depends on how many people order the tasting menu, and with 3 people we've had plenty of variety. It starts with something small - a single smoked oyster per person, for example - and ends with a bigger item, such as the whole trout that we had on our most recent visit. Some of the standouts for me are the smoked oyster, shrimp and grits, cheese biscuits, steamed clams....everything is very good, but these were some of my favorites. The flavor of the Vermicelli mac'n'cheese is terrific, but I'm not convinced about using vermicelli instead of macaroni or some other similarly shaped pasta.

The service has been very good, attentive but not hovering, every time we've been there. It's become one of our favorite places to go for special occasions.
