We showed up for our reservation and it was closed. We had to scramble to find something else. Very disappointed. I wish there was a way to not rate because I did not actually get to experience Triangle Seafood.

We made these reservations for New Years Eve, the restaurant permanently closed and never notified us. We showed up at 6:45 for our 7:00 reservation to find the restaurant dark and closed with no note on the door. Very disappointed to not be notified so we could make other plans.

I had a 5pm reservation on New Year's Eve which was booked through Open Table. I received 3 reminders for this event. We arrived at 4:45pm to find the doors locked and restaurant closed. We waited until 5:05pm, then left.

Our review is based on the fact that while Open Table gave us a reservation, the restaurant was closed when we arrived. Perhaps there are some communication issues that should be ironed out between the restaurant and Open Table. We were very disappointed that we could not get our seafood fix. I was visiting from Colorado, and we don't get much of an opportunity for seafood.

When our party arrived for our reservation, both the market and restaurant were closed. There was no sign on the door or notice online. We had made the reservation via a link on the restaurant's website, and it went through with no notice to let us know that they were not open.

My family and I were concerned when we saw only one other couple in the restaurant. It was 8pm on a Friday evening, we expected a bustling crowd. The decor and location are nice the service was fair. The waiter was friendly but seemed to be the only one in the restaurant that night. The food was fair, it didn't all come out together, some of the food in our party was cold and they had to redo my order. The portion was short and they eventually gave me another portion. I hope they just opened up and are still shaking things out or maybe the lack of customers is indicative of a local crowd who has not embraced the place.

This is a fun place in Brightleaf Square - and I like the warehouse look and simple decor. They have fresh seafood and also other options - my husband and I both agreed that our food was fabulous. Very friendly service as well. I am glad I didn't pay too much attention to previous ratings, which I wouldn't consider fair after my experience there. I will definitely come back here and try other things on the menu.

Wait staff needs training, they were not really familiar with the menu. Server had no idea of how to properly present a bottle of wine. The wine was brought already opened, in a cooler with two glasses already poured.
The main courses were served before the appetizers even appeared and had to be sent back to the kitchen.
Fish and chips was one of the main courses and the server was suprised that malt vinegar is a main accompaniment for this dish. The tarter sauce was without flavor.

Our waitress was very friendly and enthusiastic. The good experience and did there however. The food was quite poor. My fish dish was overcooked and rubbery and had a very odd taste. The fish was grilled so should have really no extra flavors but when my husband tasted it he said it tasted like it was on the verge of going bad. My husband's dish was very salty and the sauce tasted like it came from a can. We were very disappointed because we love good fish and were very hopeful that this might be a place where we could get it. Sad to say, that was not the case.

Unfortunately, this review is not associated with our most recent reservation. When we arrived, there was a note on the door that said that the restaurant was closed for holiday. And, this isn't the first time that we have made reservations, only to show up to find out they were closed. It is very disappointing that no one contacted us ahead of time that they were to be closed so that we could make other arrangements for the occasion we were celebrating. And, I even went to the website prior to the reservation and nothing was posted to indicate the closure either.

This restaurant continues to change their menu - good and bad. They are definitely (as the name suggests) very much going towards seafood; whereas before, we preferred a bit more eclectic menu to accommodate our dinner guests that did not prefer seafood. Consequently, we do not go as often any more due to the limited menu.

They used to offer a great bread with olive oils - again, they stopped that for serving something that tastes like it was frozen or microwaved.

The desserts continue to change as well and the quality has been up and down.

For the price and the inconsistency of food options and quality, I would not necessarily recommend for a large dinner party or for younger kids. If it is just two of you, it's good to stop in, especially if you had no plans, as they are often not crowded (that may be a sign of the issues mentioned).

From a long wait standing at the hostess stand for anyone to notice us standing there in an almost empty restaurant to my wife having almost a full glass of water dumped on her by our waiter to nobody there ever having heard of Open Table I think we'll try somewhere else next time we want seafood.

Pros: Food was very good. Oysters for our appetizer were good, very fresh. The seafood risotto and fish tacos were great!

Cons: They seemed to be under staffed. We were there at 7:30 in the evening on Saturday and there were only about 4 tables, out of about 20, occupied and they had already ran out of my first beer selection and our first selection for a bottle of wine.

The space is a beautiful space. Was very excited when I walked in. Ordered a Bloody Mary, it was ok.

The fish part of the fish and chips was really good. The oysters on the half shell were meh... If they had been any worse, I'd have been scared to eat them raw.

The service was very slow when we needed fast, and very fast when we needed slow. They checked on us multiple times while we were eating, and almost not at all after our plates/oysters were done (all the ice melted from the oysters, so the bus person spilled water on the table and floor when retrieving the plate). We asked for the check, which they brought promptly, but they didn't pick up our cards for about 15 minutes (eventually I brought the cards up to the bar)

The service was fine, and the very close validated parking was extremely convenient, but the food was mediocre at best. It had its ups and downs though, as the fried oysters and the in-house cole slaw were both quite good. However, the beer-battered cod was hugely disappointing. It was not freshly fried and was likely warmed in the oven from frozen or perhaps refrigerated portions. The cod was such a let-down that it soured the entire meal. The sangria tasted (and looked) as if it came from a supermarket, though I doubt it did. The seafood chowder was watery, and had very little seafood in it (one small shrimp for example, and maybe a few chopped clams, or at least that's what they appeared to be). We just expected something better, especially as they have to live up to the sterling reputation of the (so missed) Fishmongers Restaurant from across the street.
