For girls night out, I always choose to go to the fish because of food, service and ambiance.

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.

It was a nice experience but it is a little loud due to it being in midtown I believe there is a much younger crowd that dines here.

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.

My husband and I enjoyed our Valentine meal at The Fish. We had reservations for 6pm and enjoyed a quite and comfortable spot in a booth by the window. Even the happy hour didn't cause extra noise. Service was great and food very tasty.

event though this restaurant has been around for a long time, they've managed to maintain that new restaurant service, food quality and atmosphere. The spicy garlic edamame was outstanding, sushi rolls were fresh and wonderful, service was fantastic (super friendly and helpful with our 7 yr old daughter), drinks were perfect, prices are reasonable for a family. Love that the place is super clean considering its age. We will be going back very soon!
