The Flying Fisherman
We had a 7:15 reservation and the place was empty. It started filling up after 8:30. Our plates and glasses were whisked away after only one hour and the check was presented. The waiter did not ask if we wanted another drink, desert or coffee.
This is the third time I have dined at this very convenient neighborhood restaurant, sadly my last due to the poor presentation and taste of the food.
That said the wait person was extremely personable but sadly this did not make up for the quality of the menu items. Noise was also a problem on the second visit.
This slice of the. Upper west Side has long needed a reasonably priced seafood specialist. For starters, try the tasty crabfilled.baby squash or the rillettes. The lobster roll is two thick chunks of brioche stuffed wi a mixture of meat moistened by crime fraiche. Accompanied by just-fried chips.. if you see cioppino,
Great seafood. Great drinks
Hardly anyone in the restaurant at 5pm. Service was especially slow! One server only working the floor. We had an event to attend at 6:30pm and told the server when we arrived... just made the program...
Really how long does it take to shuck 6 oysters?
Nice neighborhood restaurant. Friendly service. Food served hot and waitstaff attentive. Perhaps water glasses filled too often.
Laid-back, easygoing seafood restaurant, a welcome surprise on the Upper West Side. Tops are the lobster roll with crime fraiche, the crabmeat-stuffed baby squash an any of the gently fried foods.
A Fish restaurant and no lobster rolls at 1pm? Had fish and chips instead, loaded with salt. Not good for the Upper West Side. Also, prices are quite high!
An OK seafood/fish restaurant on the UWS with nothing special. Hostess welcome is perfunctory, Service is good but perhaps slightly inattentive. Ambiance is neat but hard-surfaced and tends to be loud. Salad starters were OK but not memorable. Roast cod was OK, seafood paella special was NOT a paella but rather a creamy, soupy risotto with clams, mussels, and a langoustine ...... disappointing. Wine list is decent and affordable. Pricing is good.
We are repeat customers and love the food and would definitely come here again. Simply wonderful food.
First class seafood restaurant. Very welcome in the neighborhood.
We were in NYC for a vacation, and loved this restaurant so much we went back the next night. The food is excellent.
We were there for brunch. The food was average and the bill was very high. Not worth it. Bring AG Kitchen back!
This is a great neighborhood restaurant. The food was very good, loved the house made chips. Good value and very accommodating, friendly service. I'll be back!
Service was good but food was bland and tasteless. Not what i expected for the price we had to pay.
We enjoyed the Flying Fisherman, but it was really too loud on a Friday evening fully to give satisfaction. Also, having TVs in the restaurant (albeit over the bar) and reflected in mirrors was distracting and a significant detraction from what could have been a better ambience. It's a restaurant, not a bar, and the TVs are a minus, not a plus. No one would go there for the TV.
This was our first visit and we will go back. However, they need to learn how to pace the meal and to bring things in the proper order.
Always an incredible experience. Wonderful, friendly place. Freshest fish.
Food was average but overloaded with salt. Seating was too close together. Service was good.
It was very good. Not a 10 out of 10, but a solid 8 out of 10. There are other seafood restaurants in the city that I think are WAY better, but they are all much farther away (downtown). But for a local place on the UWS, this is a very good spot. Food was very good, drinks were very good. The wait staff was GREAT.
This place is terrific what it does — and that’s modest, not grand. The oysters are super. The place is clean and airy. The prices are fair. There is a popular happy hour that is a little noisy. It’s a dream choice for those who can enjoy a weekday lunch.
Great neighborhood venue! Caring and attentive staff and delicious food!
Very happy to find this seafood restaurant in our neighborhood on the UWS. Three of us dined. All were very pleased with our meals (appetizers and entrees). I also greatly appreciate NY restaurants with reasonable corkage fees, $20 in this case. The owner of the restaurant was very welcoming. We will definitely return.
We had a marvelous evening there. The happy hour cocktails and oysters are worth the trip. We loved the baked clams as well as all of our main courses.
This was by far the worst restaurant experience I have encountered. The waiter did not understand the menu and pricing. The wrong food order was delivered to our table and removed. The manager was absolutely rude, the bathroom was dirty and the food was only OK.
Aside from the service being a bit slow, it was very good. Definitely will return, great happy hour 7 days a week which also includes food!
Welcome to the neighborhood-the UWS. Very good food at reasonable prices in an acceptable setting--hard to find these days. Please stay around.
Very nice happy hour, delicious clams & oysters! Great margaritas too!
First visit and a delicious surprise. Fabulous fish tacos and clam chowder accompanied by friendly efficient service.
I don’t usually give 5 stars but I was very impressed I ordered the Salmon and I always have to order it medium Rare which I did it came out perfect most other fish places it comes out overdone
Best piece of Salmon in awhile and the sides were perfect
Would go back again and again
First time there. Close to our apartment. Excellent service, very accommodating. Good wine selection, and cocktails. Healthy menu options, well presented and prepared. Yum!
Large portions, delicious smash potatoes , and if you come before 7pm drinks at $5! Will definitely return.
I am sad to say that this meal was terrible. My family was a frequent guest of AG Kitchen and had high hopes. We will not be returning.
We loved the seafood offerings and the food was all excellent. Service was amazingly fast and servers were very pleasant. Will return soon!
we enjoyed our dinner especially our grilled octopus
Absolutely excellent seafood and very hospitable staff. I will be going back
Good food and nice service.
Great food and solid happy hour. Good neighborhood spot! Will return.
I liked the restaurant but hope the service improves.
