The Dead Fish
Great view, great service, great food.
Very good food never disappointed service was great also
Amazing experience each and every visit, never disappointed!
Always love meeting my girlfriends for lunch at the Dead Fish. We can visit and enjoy the beautiful view and not be rushed. Service is excellent and the food is delicious every time. I was surprised that the crab chowder was actually clam chowder with a healthy portion of crab on top....delicious but not what I expected!
This place was a PERFECT spot on the drive home to San Francisco from Napa for dinner. Beautiful views on the water, incredible food, beautiful restaurant. We stumbled upon this after a day out of the city and was perfect for a birthday dinner. One of my favorite meals and spots in the Bay Area.
We always have a great experience at Dead Fish! This time was no exception! Our waitress was wonderful. My husband ordered the Cioppino but was brought a pot of steamed clams by accident. The waitress not only took care of the messed up order but also brought my husband of bowl of the clams because he was interested in them and the waitress said it was for while he was waiting. Great service! Great food! Great restaurant!
While the Dead Fish is known for good food the only thing that was of edible quality was the clam chowder. We ordered Sand Dabs, Sea Bass, Branzino, lettuce wedge, clam chowder and drinks. The sand dabs were chewy and so small that they had to put an obscene amount of Israeli couscous to fill the plate. The sea bass and branzino were seared to the metal serving dish and so dry. We were stuck in the room with no view for our special occasion, so having a bill for well over $200 with horrible food and not sitting where you can see the water makes it hard to recommend the restaurant. The server Jeremy was really good and was the saving grace. He was knowledgable, had suggestions and was very attentive. I wanted to like the restaurant and was very excited before the meal, but left quite disappointed. Choose another restaurant.
It was nice but only lasted a few minutes. A party of 4 were seated directly next to our table & were extremely LOUD with their party’s verbal conversations!!! It was very annoying to say the least. I realize that timing is everything & the restaurant workers can’t control everything 🙁
My salad came in a skinny long plate that I so it was hard to toss it together. My daughter’s salmon came in a skillet and half of the salmon stuck on the skillet and had to scrape it. My husband’s burger bun was hard. For a $200.00 bill, not worth it.
The server we had was not very attentive we had asked for simple things like silverware, condiments and other items that should have come with our meal several times. In addition it took much longer for us to get our food compared to other people who had just sat down after us. We did not order anything that was unusual on the menu or that would have taken a long time to prepare. The quality of the food was not appealing as well as I had been there in May of this year and the food Temperature, portions, it greasy and no seasoning and had a bad taste. In May was much better. It was so bad that I didn’t feel that I was sitting at the same restaurant. I would not recommend this place for $169 it was not worth it! I was so Embarrassed as I had taken someone for their birthday.
The waiter was very flirty and slightly obnoxious. The service was slow and the food was cold. I was told the food is usually better. This wea my first trip to Dead Fish.
Fanfrickingtastic. Couldn't ask for a better meal or better service. We love the FISH
We live in San Diego, but when we come to the Bay Area, we ALWAYS go to The Dead Fish. Love the food, love the service! We will always come back.
Too loud. Not able to converse so wasn’t enjoyable. Food was good though.
Not very clean. In my opinion to go out and spend s couple of hundred dollars I would expect a better ambiance. Bathroom could be smelled in the lobby. Gross!
We had a great time, parking is always a challenge, but we lucked out, people were leaving as we arrived,
Our welter was outstanding as always and my friends were impressed.
Good food, lively restaurant - recommend for special occasions
They sat us in a table near the parking lot. No view!! Parking is bad too. Food was great.
Great place, great food...just $89 for 2 crabs seems high.
Definitely a come back place, it's out of the way and a bit pricey but worth the money you paid.
Service it's outstanding as well as their Dead Fish Stew.
We truly enjoyed our first meal at Deadfish! Everything was terrific; yummy food, great service, nice view. We were celebrating a birthday and our server was very accommodating. Thank you!
I really enjoy myself every time I go there. This time I brought my daughter and her boyfriend whom had never been there before and they absolutely loved the place and the view. Thank you!
I was just as pleased this time as I was the other two times I have eaten there.
The service was excellent. We loved what they do to celebrates special occasions. The only complaint is that the crab was a little on the salty side for me & my husband. We enjoyed everything else.
Celebration was for my dear friend and her approval is paramount, not mine. My enjoyment is Brunch and it was not available during the week therefore we had lunch and the lunch of my friend was delicious to her.
My cudos to the bartender that day. All had only raves for the drinks served. We did not sit in the bar area but I understand from friends, that frequent the bar, say the view and ambience is incredible - I will return for that experience.
Our wait staff was incredible and our waitress received 10 Stars. She made us feel welcome and her smile was ever present. She enjoyed her job and that says a lot for her employer and the serve team.
Thank you for giving my friend, Ann Willrich, a wonderful memory.
Service is excellent, food is delicious especially
the fried calamari for the appetizer.
This was my 4th. time and have not been dissaponted. The food, service and ambiance has always been great. From the warm Epi bread to the desserts all so good!. We'll be back, again and again!
My family and I had another great experience at the Dead Fish. Food and service were great!
Delightful place for lunch! A little pricey but serving sizes are large...too large in my opinion. Had French Dip sandwich ("super slider), which turned out to be THREE medium sized sliders! We all had to take some home. Would have been nice if the server had told us ahead of time.... No sides unless you pay for them...
Server noticed it was a birthday lunch and brought the lighted candelabra and a dessert, which was yummy!
Very nice staff, got everything we needed. Very calm environment, from the restaurant and the outdoor view of the bay. No trouble getting in nor out, very nice experience.
Had a nice time with my daughter as always, but our server could have been a bit more attentive. We will still be coming back.
2nd tome I’ve been here in a row that the fish was over cooked. Too expensive to not know how to do fish. Last tome I informed the waiter, but this time didn’t want to complain again , and on our anniversary !
Amazing service, amazing view, amazing food, great memories...in that order
Sorry birthday boy was sick but had a good time never the less.
The food wasTremendous. We sat on the patio and enjoy the views over the water.
Great place to dine for Lunch or Diner go to the patio the views are amazing!! the food is so delicious and the servers are friendly and eager to help!!!
Great experience. Parking is a little crazy, but love the food, the view, the cocktails and the service. Will definitely be coming back.
Our server Leo was great, he gave us some great recommendations. Parking was another thing. All of the lots were packed!
Dead Fish never fails. Great crab and fantastic sea bass. It's worth it!
WoW this place is outstanding. The service was amazing. We sat outside on a beautiful day. Our reservations was for 5 o’clock we sat there till 9 o’clock in the evening that’s how awesome the service was. I brought along my seven-year-old finicky eater she was very satisfied with her meal. I have already started recommending this place to people. Keep up the good work DEAD FISH! you guys were spot on.
