I’m very confused why this restaurant has a great rating. This might have been the worst sushi I’ve ever had and was clearly cheap and fake.
We ordered one of the special rolls for the night and it came out wet and soggy like it had water spilled over it. Next we ordered chicken fried rice which honestly tasted worse than microwaved fried rice (the waitress confirmed it is microwaved).
For the price, the food quality was horrible. It did have a good environment, but that’s about it.

Rolls were overpriced for the size and quality. Poke bowl was way over priced for less than 1/4 up of salmon and had way too much rice at 1.5 cups. Server was good. Ambiance was nice.

I enjoy the food at The Fish but the last few times the service has been very slow and items are forgotten and slow to be delivered, which holds up partaking in the meal.

First time and our waiter, Anthony, went out of his way to take exceptional care of my wife and I. It was my wife’s birthday and a memorable experience! The food was wonderful and the service was great! We will go back and take our family and friends!

I love the sushi roll choices at The Fish and always love what I get. We typically have good luck with the service when we come here but this time they struggled a bit. They were all very nice but service was slow and they we had to ask twice for them to bring two different items that we ordered that they simply forgot. We had to chase them down to get refills and order additional rolls because they did not stop by periodically to check on us. Also, we were sitting next to a table of 8 people and two of them were very loud....so much so that those in our party sitting closest to their table were unable to hear any of the conversation at our table. Having said that, it was absolutely no fault of the restaurant. Overall I will go back there because I do love the food so much but just wish we had better luck with our service that night.

When I arrived at the restaurant the Hostess stated that she didn't see a reservation for me, it was no problem but I wasted my time setting the reservation. The waiter was exceptional he was very attentive and went above and beyond for my friends birthday. I expected the Fish to be more packed but overall it was a good experience. Awesome Fried Bananas and Ice Cream.

The food was really horrible and I got the sense that it was the standard and not the exception. Felt like a time warp circa 2004 with bad music, dated furniture and neon liggting. Really disappointing experience.

I love The Fish! This is our go to place when we need a break from kids or our date night. The ambiance is really cool, the food is amazing, I love all their apps and sashimi and the sake and most importantly if you come on their reverse happy hour! The service is great, we have a waitress there that we adore, I think her name is Jennifer or something, she knows us already and she remembers what we like to order there, she mare sure also we have drinks all the time. All in all, I'd like to come to this restaurant and bring my husband or girl friends.

Portions are on the small side, but the quality of food is pretty good. Located around other shops and restaurants, which made it convenient to walk for dessert.

The service at The Fish is very good and they are very attentive. The bar is very good for a upper mid-tier sushi restaurant. The fish selection is outstanding, plenty of Otoro, Chutoro, Ankimo and Kampachi. The uni was was excellent and was billed as Santa Barbara but it was smallish for Santa Barbara. The sashimi orders are large, five pieces. The Chutoro was on the high side for the quality but not crazy. This will be my go to weekend sushi place.

Went here for Reverse Happy Hour. The sushi tasted good and was fresh. Roll options on the happy hour menu were more geared toward western tastes and most items were fried or mayo-laden. I was able to order one tempura fried roll as raw instead which I appreciated. Overall good price and flavor for a satisfying a sushi craving.

My girlfriend and I had a Valentine's dinner at the Fish. It was a great meal for us; we both enjoyed the food and surrounding. We order much food and the bill was not too bad, much less than what I was expected. I would definitely come back.

Not much to say that was memorable. In knowledgeable staff. Mediocre-to-tasty recipes, spartan interior. Average, and a bit high-priced for the portions, but in the location it’s not too surprising. Positive note, the fish was fresh and great quality, so perhaps a good dependable sushi place if you’re in the area (living/working often.)

Just felt average to me, not special, not horrible, just average. I went for a dinner (2 people) and the noise level was not loud, but there was also quiet a few empty seats in the place so it was relatively empty (can't complain about availability). I would not recommend the sangria, it was not very good, but all of the food that we ordered was great. Service was very fast, nothing wrong with that if you looking for a quick bite.
