Blackfish, the flagship BYOB of Chef/owner Charles "Chip" Roman, offers seafood-centered, progressive American cuisine with French influences.

Guests can enjoy a daily changing a la carte menu, as well as tasting menus ranging from five-to-seven courses.

Blackfish opened in 2006 and has since been named “Best Restaurant” in Philadelphia Magazine’s 2011 “50 Best Restaurants” issue, calling Blackfish “flat-out fantastic; sophisticated without being overbearingly avant-garde, pretty and fresh without being precious; the perfect restaurant of the moment.”

    Of all the restaurants we frequent we usually come out from Blackfish reaffirming that we think it consistently the best of all. Beet salad and smoked salmon with quail egg appetizers were followed by the best duck breast I have ever had and a very nice rendering of a swordfish steak. No desert though they looked Yum but we were full. A very flavorful cappuccino finished the night. Excellent. It was bustling last night so quite loud, and pricing is not in the value range but is a fair value for the quality and the attention put into the menu and food! We will back again, and again. G

    The food was incredible, easy to tell it was lovingly prepared and very fresh. We were there during restaurant week so the portions were small but my waistline appreciated it. Like most restaurants post covid the prices are trying to make up for the loss during the lockdown.

    Blackfish never ceases to exceed our expectations. The food is always outstanding and the staff are so friendly. They definitely go out of their way to make your experience top notch. If you’re in the Conshohocken area, Blackfish is a must!

    High level of detail in all categories. Food was extraordinarily well prepared and fresh, just lsome lacking a bit of seasoning… The tuna tartare was good but needed a little bit of seasoning/soy?- ginger?-lime?- something- flavor to perk it up. My salmon with jasmine rice was the same… A bit on the bland side. I’m not a fan of over saucing And like to taste the natural flavor of the foods, cannot stand when things are over embellished –but I found it to be under flavored. Brussel sprouts were out of this world the best I have ever had in my life! We were there for restaurant week so limited options but everything was excellent will definitely go back. Server was excellent.

    Went on a night conshohocken main street was shut down due to a festival i had no idea existed. Parking was a problem and restaurant was packed. We were seated near our reservation time. Service turned out to be great, food was outstanding!!! I started with the Tuna and then the breast of duck. The duck breast was as good or better than i have eaten anywhere. My friends had the swordfish which they were very pleased with. We thought all the portions were a little small, but when you finish the whole meal, for us it was fine. My wife had the grilled shrimp which was just ok. We haven't been to Blackfish for a number of years and it was well worth the trip back.

    Was pretty disappointed with the service and quality. Waited 15 minutes after being seated to be greeted/served bread, then when the waiter appeared he rushed us through ordering. Food came out lukewarm, but the seasonal tomato salad was simple and amazing (called “panzanella” salad but instead of the usual bread “salad,” it was tomatoes with a scant few tiny croutons on top). Then after we finished eating we waited 15 minutes for someone to clear our plates. We had finished all the food on our plates, so it’s not that they thought we were still eating. Anyways. A bit of a letdown.

    The food was great. However that’s about the only positive we could give for Blackfish. There were a few shortcomings. The tables were too close to each other. My wife and I could literally join the conversation with our neighboring table. We felt weird to speak something too personal being that we didn’t want strangers to hear what we say. When one of patrons next to us to go to the bathroom, I had to hold on to my wine glass so her body won’t knock it over. Second, the noise level was just too much. I couldn’t hear anything my wife said for most of the night. Seems like we were in an echo chamber. The nail in the coffin is that we were asked to leave with no warning. Basically, when we were presented the bill, the host said “no rush, wherever you are ready”. We push in our CC and then signed it. We thought we might still have a bit more time to finish our wine. Before we could even take another sip, the host said that “BTW, we need the table now. If you want to finish your wine, there is a table in the corner, you can move there to finish your wine”. I nicely asked that may we have an extra 5 mins to finish the wine because my wife still got half of her glass to be finished. He said, no, they needed the table NOW. We were both shocked and maybe even embarrassed to respond. We just left right after that. While the food was great, the service and the ambiance really needed huge adjustment. Maybe first order of business is the reduce the number of bookings per night. A supposed a lovely date night ruined by the subpar service. Will not return.

    We took some friends out to celebrate their matrimony. We had the 7 course tasting menu and it was spectacular. Paired it up with some champagne and great progression of a few different wines, and it turned into an exceptional dinner experience. Highly recommend it!! Sorry no photos. We were too busy enjoying.

    The food was very good, on the whole. The fish stew was somewhat one-note, the fish a bit overcooked and missing a claim That dish could use a vegetable on the side. Dessert menu is limited and passe. The room has not been updated since the retaurant opened, as far as I could see, and was rather dark and uninviting.

    Wonderful service and food. Loved the 5-course tasting menu. Even things that we would not ordinarily have ordered (panzanella salad; duck) were truly delicious. Sat outside at sidewalk table, which gave great opportunities for people-watching; inside looked very crowded and very noisy. Once the servers realized we were seated outside the service was outstanding - very friendly and engaging, not intrusive, never waiting for long periods of time. Loved that the menu changes frequently based on what’s fresh. Definitely a special event place but we will certainly be back.

    The food is excellent From the taste perspective. However the menu selection is very small and the portion sizes for the appetizers are even smaller, considering the price. Our server was very nice and attentive. The noise level inside was very loud but we sat outside. Overall very expensive for what you get.
