    I went there based on OpenTable review and quite disappointed. It is certainly below average at its best. Nice people and great service but is it worth to go to midtown craziness for the food quality - actually no. I paid $20 to park as the restaurant area doesn’t offer any! No valet etc.

    The food was great, even the hamburger. We missed our funny, and professional server. He always makes the meal a special occasion. The server last night was in over her head. She couldn’t take our orders completely. It took forever for some of the 4 of us get our food. We had to reorder several forgotten items. There wasn’t a large crowd, so there is no excuse.

    There were 4 other tables beside our party in the whole restaurant and the waiter serving us, was very lacking on service. We constantly had to hunt him down, he sure did spent majority of his time behind the ticket counter. Oh they also charge CC fee on top of that. $11.50 Pretty high!

    20 years ago, my husband and I first came to the Fish and came back a lot, both for lunch when we worked downtown and for dinner on our dates. It was one of our favorite sushi places, back when there just weren't that many high end sushi restaurants in Houston. I don't know if our sushi palette has evolved due to the increased number and sophistication of options, such as Uchi and Kata Robata, but we were pretty disappointed by the sushi this time. We took our kids for an early dinner, and the service was quick and kind, but they did mess up our daughter's order and she didn't get her entree until the rest of us were done eating. The entrees and appetizers were above average to good, but the sushi was meh. I ordered a favorite from years ago, the lickety split, and it was half the size it used to be (but about the same price), and very bland. My daughter and husband both thought it tasted funny (my husband said it tasted like bologna??) . The rest of the sushi items were also rather bland. All in all, I don't think we will make this trek downtown for The Fish again, which is so sad, as it was such a former favorite.

    The service is usually excellent, however this time there were multiple occasions where we waited 10, 15, 20 minutes and more for a server to attend to us. We also were nearing the end of the meal before our last item was served (it was ordered at the same time as our other items. Our server apologized and said the kitchen had forgotten it. To be clear, we have dined here several times and our experiences have otherwise been positive.

    The wait staff was great, but the hostess failed to check me in for my reservation for which I had to waste my time to write OpenTable an email to rectify the situation. I will not be back to the restaurant since they are unable to properly manage their reservations and create undue burden on customers.

    I have not been to this restaurant in many years but I wanted to try it again. My favorite that I’ve eaten there before is the ribeye stuffed with avocados. The last time I ate it was many years ago and the teriyaki sauce was too sweet but this time it was perfect and delicious. Outstanding and so tender it practically melted in my mouth. We sat outside and the weather was perfect.
