Met Friends from out of town for lunch. Everything was excellent as always.
Thanksgiving dinner. Set menu. Nice waiter, but very slow service. Food OK, not what I was expecting at a highly rated restaurant. Perhaps a regular menu/seafood servings would have been better. Disappointed.
Excellent delish Thanksgiving meal in the outdoor Cortyard, wonderful ambiance, excellent food, generous portions
The food was delicious. Are waitress Aja was attentive but not intrusive. We were not rushed through our meal and were able to enjoy the food and conversation. The turkey was very moist and the pecan pie was homemade with pecan halves not pieces!
Blue Fish is always consistently good. Our server was courteous and they followed COVID guidelines which made us feel safe eating there.
Whilst our waitress was attentive and polite, the management was definitely lacking and overall as a customer we left very unhappy. Firstly, after making a reservation we arrived to find our rather large table was in the corner with the swinging kitchen door! Needless to say on a Saturday night the staff were coming and going constantly behind our table and the door swung in out incessantly! When we politely asked to be moved as at that point there were still a few tables empty, the hostess was snippy and unhelpful. After the rough start, the entrees took forever to get to us after constant apologizing from our waitress. Having arrived at 6:15pm we ended up eating at 9. My companion's sirloin tips were hard, chewy and left uneaten. The snapper dishes however were good. Through this entire unpleasant experience we were never approached by any management. After complaining, our waitress did organize a discount on the entrees but when all is said and done, that did not compensate for the unpleasant night out.
Dinner and drinks were fantastic! It was a great evening with friends.
Blue Fish has the best oysters in Jacksonville. The service was superb and the wine list is complete.
Great brunch menu, bloody Mary $2.00, Mimosas $1.00 !
Food was amazing as always, and our server was very friendly and helpful with the menu.
Amazing food and sitting outside was very enjoyable. Will definitely be going back.
A dozen oysters during happy hour is a great deal! Nice table at the open sliding windows made it very pleasant. My husband had one of the best fish dishes he's had anywhere! Great evening overall ~~. except for the VERY loud obnoxious female at the bar. The manager did go to speak with her. She should have been asked to leave ~ in my opinion as it went on for too long. Otherwise, a nice evening.
In love with blue fish and their brunch! I’m still thinking about the chicken sliders I had!
We had a great meal, sat outside in the garden. The ambience was great, food and service were excellent!
Brunch is always great here.
Great service, food, and atmosphere.
Very slow and confused. They were busy though, and working in a mask can't be fun.
Food was good. Didn’t get offered all the pastries that I called ahead about but overall food tasted good.
The restaurant has changed ownership several times and this is my first time since it became Blue Fish. I like the atmosphere but the place seemed a little run down... our table had damage to the surface so it should have had a table cloth on it because right away it affected the ambience. There was water dripping from the overhead are duct which they knew about because it dripped on my head while we were being seated. That being said the food was good and presentation was lovely. The choices were many, maybe too many to ensure it was all FRESH. Our server Grace was very pleasant and helpful. I would definitely give it another try and see if they have addressed any of these issues.
We always have so much fun at Blue Fish! Grouper Boulebaise and lobster ravioli was delicious!
Best martini too!
Excellent service and we LOVED the crab bisque. Our main course came out a little cold, but other than that, it was delicious and a nice experience. The staff was very friendly.
Happy hour was great. The service is excellent and food very flavorful. The fish is fresh and offered cooked several ways. Definitely a go back to restaurant.
Fantastic brunch on the back patio! Huge portions so we shared. The bread and desserts were a nice bonus!!
Food was good as always, service was slow this time
Dinner was delicious! Our waitress was not stellar, mixing up our checks a bit but overall nothing major. The kitchen was sold out of two of the items we ordered which was disappointing since our reservation was fairly early. (7:15) My biggest complaint would be that I reserved outdoor seating although when we arrived we were seated inside right beside the kitchen door. It was very distracting as servers constantly came in and out and on top of that the door was squeaky.
disappointed. Too salty. Was there any oysters under the spinach on oysters Rockefeller?
The blackened trout was outstanding and the Banana French Toast
Small portion for the price. The food tasted ok. Nothing to brag about. I don’t have to go back.
We came to Blue Fish because my guess was from out of town and he wanted some good seafood since he was in Florida. When I have come before it was during happy hour so I assumed that was taking place. When we was sat down we were given a regular menu and happy hour was not mentioned at all. So I thought that maybe they didn't do it on the weekend. It wasn't until I ran into someone in the parking lot saying that you can't beat their happy hour that I realize we were not advised of our full menu options. Other than that everything was good but talking to the gentleman he said he was done the same way 2 times until the 3rd visit he caught on to what took place. That would cause me not to want to come back at all. If we had the option for happy hour that should have been mentioned instead we were provided before me you for dinner as if that was the only option we had.
My fiance and I hadn't been out to dinner since February with this Covid stuff. As he is one if the at risk population, I wanted a restaurant that we could still feel safe at. I reserved outdoor seating and felt great about my choice. The staff wore masks and the tables were distanced. Lovely atmosphere in the courtyard. I had the fish of the day, grouper, in a curry sauce. My fiance had grilled swordfish. Both were delicious. We also very much enjoyed our ceasar salads that were NOT swimming in dressing as they so often do. The sangria was the tastiest I've ever had. The outdoor chairs are not the most comfortable, they could use a cushion for sure. But my overall experience was delightful and staff were superb!
Had my second experience at The Blue Fish and this visit was equal to my first two months ago. This restaurant is simply wonderful, the chef is a genius !
Date night with the wife and they put us in a storage room. Literally had stacked up tables and chairs around us and we were out of sight from the entire restaurant. Took forever for the wait staff to even know we were there. We’ve been secluded enough during all this, why do this to someone when they want to come out to your restaurant? We used to frequent this place but never again. This was terrible and made us feel like they didn’t want us to be seen or something. We had a drink and an appetizer then left as we felt totally humiliated to be shoved into a closet for dinner.
The appetizer was great! Main entree was alright.
Food, drinks & atmosphere were outstanding. Only complaint would be our server couldn't keep the drinks coming fast enough!
Rashawn was outstanding and the mussels are truly one of my favs! Thanks for a lovely even as always
Disappointed that they wouldn’t take my OpenTable gift card for $10. They said it was rejected..
This has literally become my go to spot. I love it
Outstanding seafood restaurant, I had the seared snapper with grilled asparagus and a cup of crab bisque. The food was excellent. The service was great; I didn't have to wait more the 10 mins for my table. Atmosphere was very nice. I sat in the outdoor garden. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for excellent seafood and a good surrounding.
The food here is always good. On this evening we were waiting for well over an hour and still no meals. Our wonderful waitress Navin had the manager come to the table, and he took care of it. So although frustrating, we will give them another try.
