The meal was served out with good timing - we enjoyed eating a leaisurely paced meal & not feeling rushed. I had the Chilean Sea Bass which was cooked perfectly. I do like salt, but the sauce seemed to be over salted. Our waiter did an excellent job serving us.

Food is always top notch and fresh fish options. Get the sea bass or anything on the special menu.
We had a reservation but had to wait an additional 45 minutes. The waitress did not seem very pleasant.

Food quality is poor. I ordered the halibut, and it was dry and flavorless. My husband had the catfish jambalaya style. The sauce overpowered the fish. It was terribly over-sauced. Restaurants do this when the quality of the fish is questionable. It’s not necessary to put sauces like this or to serve the fish blackened when you serve high-quality fish. My brother-in-law’s scampi with pasta was good, as well as our wedge salad.

Tin Fish is still a gem that we save for special occasions. This occasion New Years Eve Dinner - understanding that New Years Eve is busy, we waited for 30 minutes past our reservation time for a table and I had a busser actually grab the salad plate off the table mid-bite. Next New Years Eve, space your reservations out more and don't literally grab plates that people are still eating off of to speed up your table turn.

Had the special for the evening, Nantucket scallops and the salmon. Both were very good but I thought the scallops were so sweet and perfect. Nice dinner for our anniversary and we did not have to bother going to Chicago to find a great place to eat.

The food was average, less than I was hoping for. My wife had scallops that were cool to the touch when served. The waiter took them back and heated them up. Not the best thing to do to a scallop. It ruined them at that point. Never offered to remake them as they should have. On a positive note, the clam chowder was yummy but that’s about it! Rather disappointed and out $100!

Beginning to end. I have been here several times previously and this time was very similar to prior experiences. Parking is too limited but valet parking is available. I walk and I don’t mind it. Very good variety of seafood and everything I have ever had there is 3.5-5 stars. Presentation is always considered and it is more towards elaborate than basic. Beer selection is good as is the wine selection. The salads are fresh, creative and well-presented. The swordfish, salmon and white fish were excellent. I like the blackened swordfish but the corn meal is also a great preparation option. Didn’t stay for desert. Open Table is missing the price range a bit as it has risen. It says $30 and under but if you look at seafood entrees only for the most part you are looking at$29 up to mid or upper $50. You do get what you pay for here so it is worth it, but if you go in thinking it will run about $50/person with a soup or salad and a glass of wine, depending upon your choices that could get to nearer $75/person. I will return.

First we were seated in the corner even though we had reservations and plenty of empty better seating all around. Stayed empty the entire time we where there. The food flavours are a bit strange and the prices are way over the top for the value. The service was great we felt bad we did like it more for her sake.
