    great food, great service, great atmosphere

    This fun, hip west village find incorporates great music, fresh seafood, a casual atmosphere and friendly, attentive service. The owner of the restaurant owns Down East Seafood, so they get the best and freshest of the day's find. The interior resembles a Northeast Seafood Shack and the oyster special is out of this world...6 blue point oysters, 6 little neck clams, or 6 top neck clams with a glass of white wine, red wine or draft beer just can't be beat. This special lasts from noon to midnight, everyday! Not only that, their happy hour, which lasts until seven, has $3.00 wines and $1.50-$3.00 beers. I suggest their "angels on horseback," "oysters rockefeller," and their "horseradish salmon." Their lobster feast is just that, and inexpensive at just $36 for 1 1/4 lb of lobster. Amazingly, their burger with smoked bacon is one of the best i've had. Their service is friendly and incredibly helpful. You aren't treated like you are just another tip. I highly suggest this restaurant, and one a friday and saturday you can see that many others do as well.

    Disappointed ....

    We arrived at 6.50pm, with the aim of getting the Happy Hour special (order before 7 pm). However, we were not served by our waitress until 7.02pm when we were told that we were too late. Things went down hill from there. On attempting to order a Pinot Grigio we were informed that they had run out. No problem. The waitress recommended a wine which would be ‘similar to a Pinot Grigio’. The wine was not good and I was surprised that a 'good' restaurant would have such a low quality wine on its menu. The main dishes we ordered were a big disappointment. While the fish was good, the side dishes, creamed spinach and garlic bread were cold and clearly had been reheated in a microwave, badly, moments before. The final and most shocking disappointment was the behavior of our server who we attempted to communicate with. Her defensiveness and rudeness, ‘well, I didn’t cook the food-what am I supposed to do’ was enough to put us off this restaurant for life. Restaurants can have bad days but when the service is also poor it’s hard to be forgiving.

    Good happy hour value but...

    Agree with last two reviews, 6 oysters and a glass of wine for 8.00 is a good deal but as a single female at the bar I felt if not exactly unwelcome, not particularly welcome either, more like someone to be served, no more, no less. I would have stayed and had more to eat have dined with friends here before and know the food is good but the bartender was so consumed in conversation with other waitstaff I didn't feel like staying and rewarding indifferent service. Rather spend my money where I am made to feel bit more welcome.

    Good quality, good value

    A little known fact is this restaurant is open for lunch and it is really a spectacular value if you order one of their blackboard lunch specials. I had a blackened catfish sandwich for 9.99 which was delicious and an order of the Red White and Blue Oysters ( 6 Blue Point Oysters from the Raw Bar plus choice of a PBR or a wine. The entire meal came to under $20.00. Needless to say I will be going back. The Oysters were clean and gritless and perfect on a warm afternoon. The place has a funky Village feel, very casual for lunch. A good find.

    For those in the know...

    I heart oysters. Ergo, I heart Fish. One of the freshest places to get bivalves in the city, and shockingly, also the best deal. $8 for wine and 1/2 dozen Bluepoints - seriously? Excellent appetizers, although the entrees are a bit hit or miss (I would stick to the rolls and the grilled items) but the quality of seafood is just fantastic. Being in the neighborhood, I do not fail to eat here at least once a week, and it's always such a welcoming and cozy atmosphere, regardless of whether the restaurant's packed, or it's just you and a platter of lovingly shucked oysters.

    Great atmosphere

    You can not beat the atmosphere of this west village spot. The Tuna/salmon tartar for $9 is the best deal any where around. The crab cake sandwich is great too. Also have a great happy our 5-7 everyday for $2 drinks. You can always count on Fish.

    Lovely spot

    Chose this spot for late lunch after meandering around the village. Sat at the bar and enjoyed the calamari appetizer which was enough for two and was light and tender with a wonderful crunchy batter. Ordered a glass of Chardonney which the waiter let me taste before buying and then advised me that it was only $3.00 a glass as it was happy hour. Needless to say I had three glasses and could only eat half of my food. The atmosphere was lovely and the service was excellent...low key but attentive. I will definitely be going back!
