I have not been here in a while, but unfortunately to me, food was unimpressive. I got two specialty rolls and it just wasn’t good. They both had an odd taste that I can’t seem to point out. But service was great. Our waitress was very attentive. I just expected the sushi to be better specially for the price I paid per roll. I unfortunately won’t be coming back again.

Great staff. Good service. I know this sounds out of left field for a sushi restaurant, but you have to try the BURGER. It is UNBELIEVABLE!! Good nigiri. As far as rolls go, it’s a pretty basic menu. Great place to go on a night where you aren’t trying to be a big spender and you still want a good meal.

I was totally underwhelmed by my experience and would not go back or recommend anyone to go. The restaurant was maybe half full and the service was painfully slow, the flavors were bland. The only positive was the lychee martinis.

Appetizers were excellent and the Sashimi was very good. The Tempura was disappointing as the batter was too heavy. Sake was good. Atmosphere was lively and enjoyable. Overall we had a good night out.

Wonderful overall time at The Fish! We used to go when it was young and hip and so were we, lol. Glad to see that it has only gotten better. Great server who asked what we liked and made perfect recommendations and customizations, super nice hostess that went the extra mile, awesome bartender who delivered our drinks when it got busy so we didn’t have to wait, and the food and drinks were fresh, original, and delicious. Can’t wait to go back.

The food, drinks and our waiter were way far than excellent that I can say. I extremely liked that we were asked if everything was well. This to me is a big plus because it shows that they take great pride of their restaurant and their guest as well. I do highly recommend this restaurant.

The food was tasty, but the vibe felt like a sports bar. The noise was boisterous and there were several TVs around the restaurant showing sports. It was not the quiet, date-night place we had hoped.

We arrived 10 minutes early to our reservation and the staff was very kind and very helpful. We were seated right away. The staff came and checked on us several times to ensure the food we ordered was to our liking. Excellent and fresh tasting sushi as well.

Nice experience. Great waiter, very attentive. We ate outside and unfortunately it was windy which caused a little problem but not enough to ruin our evening. Traffic was a little noisy. The sushi chefs were backed up but we didn’t mind the wait.

We have been regulars here for almost 10 years. This was by far the worse visit we’ve ever encountered. Service was horrible, our waiter took 20 minutes LITERALLY, to bring us water. We had to get his attention on our own and he still forgot to come to take our order. We flagged down the general manager, hoping he’d make it right BUT that too, was a nightmare. When the server finally took our order he rushed it and wasn’t tentative at all. He was obviously super busy bc he was sweating all over and seemed irritated from the start. We had a few modifications, that they failed to get right, no cucumber on our rolls and extra eel and aioli sauce on the side. After 35 minutes of waiting on our food, it was wrong! No sauce at all on the rolls and cucumber was in every roll. We advised the manager and clearly he could care less. I don’t even think he believed us, bc before leaving the table he looked in the sushi rolls several times as if we were lying. 🥴 We had to ask for refills on coke too. Y’all it was horrible! Now after 10 long years we have to find us a new sushi spot. I truly wish this never happened, Janice and the rest of the crew needs to return to make things right.

Great service and really good food. The music is fun and exciting but not too loud. We asked for a chef’s special and our waiter recommended the Gekkeikan sake. Didn’t disappoint. And ample space between our tables for social distancing.
