    charming

    Went for brunch and found the experience very charming. The wait staff was friendly and the upstairs room was very attractive. There were a couple small flaws with the menu that would not prevent my returning. The lobster benedict contains absolutely no lobster, I think the orange sauce on the english muffin had lobster 'essense' but the dish is named incorrectly. Also my chocolate pudding did not have any pistachios, which were under the menu description but did not appear on my plate. I did, however, have a lovely brunch. Nice cocktails but be prepared to empty your wallet when the bill comes.

    very much improved

    great restaurant week menu selection (the entirety of the menu was available) had read the positive reviews but was a little suspicious as they were mostly glowing. found all to be accurate, great atmosphere upstairs, excellent service and great food. all around pleasing staff and experience. will definitely return to this charming spot.

    The smallest shrimps in one of the best seafood restaurant

    I can't get over the disappointment I had after having brunch at Fishtail. This is a seafood restaurant! Where was that seafood? I swear I never saw such small shrimps in my grits and "shrimp " order. Other dishes weren't that tasty eigher.it's expensive place and of course expectations are high!!

    Service has gone down, big time

    I used to be a regular here, bringing lots of family and friends over the years, and I will not be going back. The service has gone downhill (in a major way) and there are better choices out there. They run out of customer favorites on the menu (how can you be a seafood restaurant and run out of fish and lobster in the same night!), the manager is smug, the hostess is unorganized, water never makes it to the table, and the clientele has deteriorated. Do yourself a favor and pick one of New York's other restaurants - even another David Burke restaurant - just not Fishtail.

    Very disappointed

    Waste of time and money. Friend ordered risotto with lobster and it arrived instead with shrimp and no one knew why or how. Where is the chef at this pricey David Burke restaurant. There was nothing that my friend or I liked. Waiters were rushing and hard to find. Especially when the order was wrong. I sense a downhill turn of this previous good place.

    Wasn't too pleased!

    We went for Valentine's dinner. I wanted sushi instead of/or with the Prefix but was firmly told the $85 Prefix was the only option even though sushi was on the menu. Our waiter was nice but there were a lot of men in suits standing about or constantly walking by asking if we were okay which is a con when trying to have a romantic dinner. Another turn off was the big liquor-store style security camera hanging above our table. I ordered the Branzino which was a dry, bland piece of fish by itself on a big plate and the spinach side arrived cold 10 minutes later! Dessert took 30 minutes to come out after dinner was done! My fiance did like her Roasted Lobster and the ambiance but I won't return or recommend. Spend your coin elsewhere.

    Not recommended

    The wine came and no one showed up for 30 min. Ready to walk out when manager came to apologize. Ordered 4 shrimp and 1/2 lobster. lobster came with shell and no meat. sent that back too. manager came back with crab cakes to make up for disaster. ordered dinner had better fish at less expensive places. Forget dessert couldn't wait to leave.
