I found the menu much more limited than the last time we were there.
Service was extremely slow, food was not provided as requested, checkout was a nightmare with credit card being charged 3 times, all different amounts.
The food was ok but for the money and atmosphere, there are much better places to go.
Love this restaurant - always too many choices! Grilled octopus and the Brussel sprouts were divine! The balcony is very special .
Been to fish house many times. It is usually very good. A definite choice when looking for seafood in Lake Forest.
This was the best fresh fish & seafood that I have ever had. The service was excellent. The pace on how the food was brought to the table was outstanding. Not too fast and not too slow. It was just right. I can't wait to get back there for a wonderful dinner.
Very nice setting. Seating on enclosed porch was comfortable. Food and service was very good, but rushed, presumably because it was New Years Eve. Would be willing to return and see if service remains fast.
You don't have time to read all of the wonderful attributes of this restaurant. From the time we arrive until the time we leave, our experience is seamless and joyful. We have tasted everything on the menu and have partaken of daily specials--each bite is a reward for the senses. The wait staff is kind, knowledgeable and patient for those with special food requests. Cocktails are ample and well poured. Fish House is an extraordinary haven for anyone wanting a perfect culinary evening.
Never been disappointed and really like the atmosphere. The lobster bisque is fabulous. Can't get enough of it. My Salmon has always been cooked spot on. I always find an excuse to go back.
Table, food, service were all superb!
Unique flavors and lovely presentation.
It was expensive!
Our party of five enjoyed this restaurant very much. We loved the Dover Sole! Highly recommended.
Outstanding seafood and loved the fact they offered small plates and 1/2 orders of the main dishes so we could try several items. Unfortunately, the service was not good. It was almost 30 minutes before anyone came to our table to take our drink order and then several more minutes before they brought us bread. My wine finally came but my husband had to wait even longer for his diet coke. Once they finally came to take our food order, the service improved. They brought our dishes timely, but then we had to wait too long again for the dessert menu and then for our waiter to return to take our dessert order. By that time we decided to skip dessert since we were tired of waiting and just wanted to pay our tab and leave. Despite the disappointing service, we would return again since we very much enjoyed the food and atmosphere.
We were in Lake Forest for memorial service. We decided to stay in town for dinner. What a wonderful restaurant. Beautiful service, lovely ambiance and most important delicious food !!!
Over priced, small portions and flavors not up to par
Great local restaurant with the freshest fish around, great service, and nice ambiance. Not the cheapest, but as they say, you get what you pay for.
Love, love my experience at MH Fish House. Tried a few appetizers that were great and had the Halibut entry which was perfectly cooked. The atmosphere is classic but not stuffy. It was a fun atmosphere with a great waitstaff. I will definitely return!
We had an excellent meal. Service was perfect. We asked the staff for a little extra time after the appetizer so we could discuss the play we had just attended. Like magic our conversation quieted and the salads appeared. Someone was paying attention. The Shrimp and Mussels with Risotto has to be tried.
Decor could use a little work. We would recommend.
A real find only 14 months young! What a pleasant surprise they did not miss a beat and I am no easy patron.
We will be back. The tuna and octopus were outstanding.
We had a delicous meal and a fabulous balcony table overlooking Market Square. The Crab Linguine and Halibut were both Outstanding.
The salmon was grilled to perfection. We also shared some appetizers that everyone enjoyed. And, of course, the grilled brussel sprouts were perfect.
