    fantastic

    Went during rest wk. Having been to David Burke's townhouse we were looking forward to Fishtails. Greeted as soon as we entered, and seated upstairs in a lovely room, red walls decorated with fish and sea decorations. Our waiter was excellent(Alex). Very attentive but not overly intrusive. All the food was excellent escept my DH said the hanger steak was a bit tought. He did love the FF. I had bronzini-delicious with a side salad and a Cal. roll as an appy. Their choc cake was dense and very rich. I had the fruit plate,and we shared since the choc cake was too much for one person. Will definately return to either rest.

    Apearance-Lovely/Food- Good/Service-Weak

    Maitre'd was highly professional but waiter clearly couldn't care less about the customers at his tables. The food was elegantly presented and tasted fine but not exceptional. Prices were steep.

    Amazing Food

    Fishtail was incredible. I have never been to a David Burke restaurant but will certintaly be going back. The appetizer portions were generous. We had the fish taco's and the crab cake covered pretzels. Both were fantastic. You need to try the crab cake covered pretzels. I've never tasted anything like it. Got the Paella and the Grouper special both were excellent. The special cheesecake lollypops those were the only thing we didn't care for and actually left most of it but we didn’t care at the point b/c the rest of the meal was fantastic. We don’t usually do restaurant repeats since there are so many great places in the city but we will be back to this one. The service was excellent our waiter could not have been nicer. We didn’t look at the bottle of wine prices but the wine by the glass was very pricey ($14-$20)

    Good resturant week lunch

    We enjoyed a very good lunch during restaurant week. The selection consisted of about five entrees--from hamburger to Branzino--five appetizers, five desserts. We ate downstairs where there is a bar with counter and booths for two. Pretty decor. Charming hostess to everyone in a bad rainy day. The only minor complaint was the waiter- a bit surly, took our dessert order with our entree order and brought the coffee before we had finished dessert even though we specifiaclly told him to wait until after we had finised dessert, seemed to be in a hurry. A good lunch overall, we will return.

    The best I've eaten in NY thus far

    Maybe I got lucky...maybe I know how to browse through menus....maybe I am not overly demanding with service and I understand there will be delays when the house is packed. The most important thing for me when I go to eat fish at a restaurant is the quality of the fish. And the fish was gooooood and I thought reasonably priced. $35 for a well cooked, well sized, fresh dorade from the mediterranean is very, very reasonable in my opinion. The service had delays but the guys were very nice and their recommendations spot on. I'll go again, and again, and again to eat good fresh fish.

    Yes and no

    Yes to the ambiance, but no to the food. I was there for lunch, and had the tuna burger. They should go to the Union Square Cafe and learn how to make one. The dessert was excellent, but that is not enough as far as I am concerned. Service was very gracious, so we did not have the negative experience referred to by others. However, I will not be back.

    RW Dinner Pre-fixe

    I came here with three of my friends for restaurant week. Took luck to get a 7pm dinner reservation. When we got there, the place was already crowded with people (a good sign). I got the mussels appetizer but tried the oysters appetizer and liked the oysters better. All three of us got the bass with baby zucchini which was pretty tasty. They used a very light tomatoe puree/sauce with capers which was delicate enough to work well with the fish. However, my bf got the scallops carbonara and it was FANTASTIC! Absolutely my favorite dish and I was using the bread to eat up the left-over sauce in the dish. The sauce was creamy and some-what rich but still remained light and was not thick with a hint of garlic....really excellent cream sauce. I def want to come back to eat the carbonara...my stomach rumbles out of hunger just thinking about the dish. We got the lollipop cheesecake dessert which was definitely unique and good.
