Rockfish just keeps getting better and better with new levels of creativity coming from Chef Albright! The staff is appropriately attentive and management is sure to drop by and make sure you are having a good experience. We really enjoyed the recent brunch pop-up event for Restaurant Week!

The food and service were wonderful! They had a great selection of signature cocktails also. I just wish it wasn't quite so dark, maybe it was just the location we were sitting in. Either way, the lighting was not anything that would keep us from coming back.

Service was bad, we couldn’t even get our second drinks. We had to stop another waiter to ask if he could order them. No dessert was offered, so we went to handsome cab for dessert. Service is important and we won’t be back for awhile. Food was wonderful. Love their crab cake.

Everything was delicious. We went on Valentine’s Day. I would have liked to see a different variety of sides. I LOVE that they have Old Bay on the table. We will definitely be back on a normal day. Highly recommend!

Atmosphere was great and clean, was offset by reserving a table for two for 50$ then being told it would be given back as a gift card to eat again or used towards the dinner that night.
Service was a bit off but not terrible. I did notice some others coming in after we were seated that they were served both drinks and food before we even got to order, The people being served must have been either friends of staff or family as the waiters and bar tender stood by their table and left us in left field,.
The Oysters were amazing but overpriced which I have no problem with as I love them.
However... we ordered the Sea bass that was the most expensive thing on menu and could have not even compared to long john silvers at all. The calamari was soggy and menu says crispy. The tuna poke was great. like I said it was a hit and miss. Service was blah, food depends? maybe the Valentines chef was depressed and waiters were to busy trying to cater to their loved ones. All in all it was ok but I will be not returning.

The food was amazing! We enjoyed dishes from the Valentine’s Day menu which was very well put together. Such delicious options. I had the Steamed Middleneck Clams and Chorizo as an appetizer and the Pan Roasted Chilean Sea Bass for dinner. My boyfriend had the Crispy Calamari as an appetizer and the Grilled 8oz Prime Filet for dinner. The food was perfect. So good. My boyfriend said that it was the first filet he has ever had that was cooked to perfection, and I must agree it truly was. Temperature was spot on and the flavor was to die for. We were both highly impressed. My boyfriend dug into his food so quick I couldn’t even get a picture. We will definitely be back again.

We had a small gathering for my daughter’s birthday. The RPH employees were very accommodating with some table decorations and cake we brought in. They gave us a safe environment to celebrate - all tables were socially distanced & very clean. The food and staff was amazing as usual. RPH went out of their way to make sure my daughter had a wonderful birthday experience. THANK YOU to all the RPH management, staff and employees.

Great service and food! Have been to Rockfish many times but never tried the oyster stew. The texture and flavors are superb. I think I’ll be ordering this every single time.

Prices have increased x2, the highest in the city for restaurants. Menu is limited with only $3/each oysters on the menu. Execution for other oyster dishes was fair, not the best oysters Rockefeller. Oyster stew is still the best thing on the menu. Entrees are boring and overpriced. Go for the appetizers and soup.

Great service! The bartender was great with the Old Fashions, even the Mocktail was delicious(#75Hard)! The Crab Cake was spectacular. The Po'Boy was amazing. The only thing that was different was the service on the Oysters Rockefeller, plated up on the skillet was cool but the oysters were a little too wet for our liking. Taste was good but the texture was a little unusual.

Overall, great experience. We will be back.

Great place for seafood and cocktails in Downtown York. Love checking out their special offerings and creations of Chef David Albright. The Seafood Nachos are delicious and so is everything prepared with Tuna. Fantastic cocktails from Matt and Amanda. Be sure to check out this gem in York!

Rockfish never disappoints. They are doing a great job trying to manage the ever changing rules due to Covid-19. Our food was delicious. Though the menu is limited and my favorites were not available, I was able to try some new things.

Noise level was “quiet” due to the reduction in capacity for indoor dining. I must admit, I did enjoy the less hectic environment.
