Just a fabulous evening with my wife. Started with incredible smile and service by our waitress, Stephanie. it got even better with their acknowledgement of wife’s allergies and sensitivity to assist in her food selections — which included a visit by the chef, Derrick, at our table to pinpoint a custom selection for her. Wow! What service. It all got even better with outstanding dishes, wine pairing, and a personalized dessert for me celebrating my 60th birthday. Top-notch place. Well done by a top-notch staff, including the manager, Ted, whom stopped at the table to assure all was well. Fabulous!

The food was cooked to perfection and tasted amazing. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My husband has food allergies and so the waiter was very cautious to explain what he could and couldn’t eat, what his food could’ve come in contact with and whether or not they use the same pans or frying oil with the things he couldn’t eat. Everything came out pretty quickly and it wasn’t at the expense of the flavors or presentation. They also make one of the best classic margaritas I’ve ever had. Although the prices here are pretty high, this has become one of my favorite places to eat for special occasions. This is not the first time I’ve come to the Flying Fish and it definitely won’t be the last.

When you get an overwhelmed server it usually leads to a poor dining experience and it did for us. The food is typically outstanding but when served room temperature it's not up to par. Then when the server doesn't check on us for fifteen minutes it's even worse. Like the ambiance, but cold food and poor service ruined our evening.

The Flying Fish is a small fine dining restaurant at the Boardwalk Hotel. The food is excellent, but the choices are limited. Service is great. Because of the small size of the restaurant, there are a few bad table locations. The prices are very high, even for a Disney restaurant. And this is the reason I would not recommend it. There is nothing really wrong with it, but I can get so much more for my money at other Disney restaurants.

Expecting a similar experience as our previous visit, we were a tad disappointed in our most recent trip. It was suggested we try the Tomahawk ribeye. Normally the steaks our quite delicious;, especially when grilled with their "special" seasoning, which I'm told is something called Black Magic and can be ordered online. It's very tasty. Unfortunately the Tomahawk was a bit overcooked and good but not sensational. For $150.00 (steak for two) it should have been sensational. I toyed with sending it back but decided not to. I would definitely stick with the strip or even filet next time. Everything else at Flying Fish is outstanding and worth the reservation.

Limited choices on the menu in which could be 2-3 more apps and entrees. With that said the food is outstanding and the culinary team should be congratulated as the quality and care in the food they are serving shows!

High reviews of FF on yelp but the experience and food did not live up to what we were expecting. Giant serving plates do not mean quality food. There were not enough unique fish dishes on the menu to warrant it being a fish restaurant. Even at the 20% discount we received the cost was expensive. Narcoosie's at the Grand Floridian is much better.

I found the prices at this establishment extremely high. For a $36 entree, I was served the smallest piece of unexceptional salmon I had ever seen served in a restaurant . Literally halve of what other restaurants would serve.
If you happen to go there, check your bill very carefully. They made a $50+ error on mine. You can guess the direction.

We had a reservation and had to wait 30 min, not a big deal street performers kept us entertained. Once we were sat it, a server approached right away, but drinks took forever to come out. The food was mediocre at best and because of extremely high prices, out expectation was for the food to be decent. It was all the wrong flavor combinations, over cooked fish, mushy vegetables. We will not go back.

For us as locals, Flying Fish is far superior to all other Disney World Signature Dining experiences. It is chic, elegant, and quiet, with Iron Chef quality cuisine. It is also a total contrast to the gaudy neon “Flying Fish” sign outside on Disney’s boardwalk.

If you live in the Sand Lake - Dr Phillips - Windermere areas, I highly encourage a visit. It is better than anything on Restaurant Row.

Both I and my colleague ordered a NY strip and we found our steak to very chewy/tough with little marbling. It was cooked properly but just not a good piece of meat. We received a 10% discount on our bill - I didn’t finish half of the steak

Been here many times before and food is first rate. Servers too were excellent. However it’s cringe-worthy to me when spending $300 for dinner for 2 to be rushed through service. Mains came to table before we were finished with apps...it was like there was a stop watch driving everything. So it’s Disney and I get that, but come on now. Very poor in my opinion and despite the amazing mussels, ny strip and scallops, not gonna go back. I was embarrassed in front of my wife on our anniversary for subjecting her to this.
