    It is not a restaurant for seafood despite the name suggests. Typical upper east side menu with high prices, nothing to attract clients to return. Seems ownership and chef changed as not I recalled dining a few years back.

    We had an out of town visitor who requested Asian food and I looked up reviews for UES. This restaurant was highly rated so we decided to give it a go. The fried chicken was quite good and I liked the sauce. The calamari was excellent. So were the truffle fries. We were able to hear ourselves talk which seems so rare these days. The service was outstanding. We will come back.

    I have been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. This time, I took friends from out of town for an early dinner. There were 9 of us. The wait staff was very patient as we all decided what we wanted. Some people wanted vegetarian, some people wanted small plates (appetizers), some people wanted bento boxes and everyone was happy with their food.

    We've been trying to book A reservation at fatty fish for a long time so we were surprised that they had a lot of openings available on Sunday, we went to have lunch before an event in Long Island city. We had the chicken dumplings, sushi pizza which was amazing, and I had a bowl of the vegan tofu Ramen, and the banana tempura for dessert, my cousin ordered the Asian paella. Service and food were phenomenal, the restaurant is very cute, it was really quiet that day since it wasn't so busy and they also have a really beautiful patio out back. Will definitely be back.

    Excellent brunch menu and value. The outside seating area is adorable, on a sunny day filled with light that feels like an oasis in Manhattan. The Shishito and bacon appetizer was flavorful, mimosas plentiful, and pork belly benedict made for an excellent start to a Sunday.
