If you're a fish lover, then this is the place for you. Everything we ate was delicious! Staff was very attentive and friendly.
We had such a lovely time at Vernick Fish. It was our anniversary and they started us with complimentary champagne. The service throughout was great - attentive but not overbearing. The food was great, though it is a small menu. Cannot recommend enough!
Start to finish, one of the best dining experiences. Service was amazing. Each course we ordered was better than the one before - and they started out absolutely spectacularly. We even ordered the special app, which was a deviled egg with uni and caviar, a second time. It was that good. Friendly and attentive service. We ordered the hamachi crudo (spectacular), the jerk shrimp (beautiful), the deviled egg (brilliant, even the second time around) and then various main courses that were thoughtfully prepared. Oh, and the potato with truffle shavings was a nice addition. A bit extravagant, but when you are enjoying a meal with friends and everything comes together perfectly, you just have to go for it. Recommend 100%.
Amazing food and service ! I can’t recommend enough
Food was wonderful - particularly the hamachi and the branzino. Tables are well spaced and service was great. Overall a lovely dinner and experience as always at Vernick Fish
Anniversary dinner. Best restaurant I’ve been to in years. If you like seafood check out Vernick Fish.
Deliciously fresh sea food, very fine dinning experience, very knowledgeable waitress,
wine list is great. We'll definitely dine there again.
Such a wonderful dinner! Amazing food, impeccable service, relaxing and sophisticated at the same time.
The food is outstanding, the service is impeccable without being stuffy and Neil runs the establishment like a fine tuned instrument! It is our favorite place to eat in Philadelphia. If your like seafood it is an absolute must.
What an amazing experience!!! The food was absolutely
The deviled eggs with uni and caviar are incredible!!
Terrific all around.
The waiter was arrogant short forgot who the customer was!
Everything was incredible
A great experience from start to finish. Everyone made us feel comfortable. The food was excellent down to the dishware. Whatever you order, make sure to include the scallops crudo.
We can’t wait to go back.
Super good shout out Faye!
Service and ambiance were nice but appetizers were very underwhelming. Main course was up to usual expectation of Vernick and it was really good.
Don’t miss out on one of the best meals in the city.
Most items on the menu were new when compared to pre-pandemic. All were exciting, innovative, and so delicious!
The Grilled Black Pepper Octopus with Cherries and Ginger was positively addictive. The Grilled Black Sea Bass "al pastor" was a wonderful play on Tacos al pastor. It came with charred corn, Napa cabbage, and pineapple hot sauce. Tuna Tartar is always a winner at Vernick Fish, snd the Jerk Shrimp with Jicama snd Nectarine Salad was filled with lots of surprise, all pleasant, for the taste buds.
The food was outstanding and the service wa just as amazing. I’ll definitely be back here again when I come back to Philidelphia. This is the best restaurant that I have eaten at in Philadelphia and I’ve been to some very good places.
The place is cold and sort of unfriendly. Totally unlike our favorite for years Vernick.
The food was ok, the service was good, and our guest seemed to like what he had. So all was not lost. But that was not what we had hoped for. We probably won't be going again. We'll return to Vernick instead.
Great ambiance. Everything we ate for dinner was delicious. Good Price/Value ratio.
The cutlery looks worn off and out of place.
The hamachi and octopus were incredible! Yum!
Perfect evening for a date night with my husband. The cocktails were superb and the food was amazing. We plan to go back and visit again very soon!
Great night. Everything was quite pleasant. Food was delicious, well presented and served with a smile.
Lovely time. Food and service were excellent. Enjoyed the Lemongrass Collins cocktail and blackened fluke was delicious. Very friendly and efficient staff. Highly recommend.
We enjoyed the creative and fresh food presentations. Every course popped in your mouth with a bend of fresh and a touch of spice. Shared both small and large plates. Halibut, octopus and sea-bass enjoyed. A creative watermelon and cucumbers with harissa was enjoyed by the side. Ended with a blueberry eclair. Stenneka our server was totally poised and professional.
Great food drinks and service
No need for improvement- superb on every level!
Vernick Fish is arguably the best restaurant in the Greater Delaware Valley. The menu is limited, but I do not like to be overwhelmed by too many choices. The appetizers and main were outstanding. Desserts (only one plus ice cream) were very good. I have eaten tuna tartar hundreds of times in my many years, ranging from poor to excellent. VF has the best!
Kudos to Kristen for her attentive table service with a bubbly, sweet personality. I will be back to VF soon and will ask for her.
Wonderful!!! Delicious food and great experience.
The food was simply divine. You can really taste all food. Michael was exceptionally great providing the best quality customer service. The young ladies at the front greeted us with smiles and you can tell they are very much into providing great service.
The service was excellent and the food to die for! We enjoyed every dish and will definitely be coming back! 10 out of 10 experience.
Absolutely go to Vernick Fish. You will not be disappointed and you will easily enjoy a delicious meal, maybe even the best meal you've had all year. We always try something new, and it 's super hard to pick a favorite. You can't go wrong with any of the options, but if you have a chance to try the octopus with the peppercorn and cherry reduction, do it.
Simply divine. The charred octopus small plate was a life changing experience.
It was lovely, our waiter was good, host checked in on us, manager stopped by, we liked the oysters and halibut ceviche, the other raw plates like crudo and other ceviche were more on the sweet/salty/savory side as its ingredients are mentioned on the menu while we are more citrus/sourness seeking people - so the change in what we normally would eat was a good push of elements. Vernick Fish is worth going to.
The entire experience was absolutely stupendous!!! We're going back again next weekend.
Will definitely be back! Service was great, food and drinks were very good. My husband liked the hamachi appetizer and I loved the sea bass entree, it was summer on a plate. I love it when you walk into a fish restaurant and there is absolutely no scent of fish! We will be back to try the fried oyster dish. They have branzino on the kids menu, which my 4 year old loved. They provided coloring books and crayons for the little ones and we had a great experience!
Overpriced! Nothing special other than the prices. Service was great. Food was just very average.
