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.)

Nice little spot, good sushi, good value house sake. I’d say a tad overpriced on some of the menu items but overall good.

Went for dinner with another couple. Waiter was on his game and the food was delicious. Look forward to going back.
Parking was early via the Valet too...

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.

Met a friend there for lunch and we were extremely pressed for time. They got us in and out in under 30 minutes...and the sushi was very fresh!

I’m definitely returning!

Upbeat sushi spot in Houston, TX. Fun to visit on a date, for happy hour with friends, or a special occasion group dinner. The restaurant is centrally located and near fun places to hit up after your meal. I would recommend taking an Uber as parking can be a bit tight in Midtown.

I really enjoyed the sushi. I also ordered the pork katsu with curry and was not real fond of it. I am pretty picky since I am half Asian and grew up on Japanese food.

I love this place! Take all of my friends here when they come visit. Definitely one of my go to sushi spots. Love the food. Not so much the soy sauce that they use. There’s something different about it compared to other ones.

Great food from start to finish. Creative cocktails - try the Mango Martini, the Saki Mist (saki, Elderflower liquor)or the Saki Flight. We started with the Lobster crab puffs, Shishito peppers and Salmon skin roll - all fabulous. Then split the Whole Red Snapper (it is called The Fish, after all) which was crispy fried on the outside and delicate and delicious inside. The rolls were innovative and tasty and the Tuna Nigiri was some of the best we’d ever had, seriously melted in our mouths. We didn’t save room for dessert but maybe next time.

Bait and switch tactics not appreciated. My pet peeve is always when the server doesn’t bother telling you what they’re out of and then tries to upsell you for the stuff they don’t have. Ankimo was good as were the Albacore belly and Sea trout. Tasty, but teensy portions for the $$. The upselling continued with the server suggesting the daily special roll to my wife. For $18, it was the most tasteless thing we had all evening. For the price, there are much better options in town.

Linda was great. She was very welcoming and the decor was nice. The miso and sushi were very tasty. The only issue I had was that the rolls fell apart completely to the touch. So, it became very difficult to eat with chopsticks.
