Uncharacteristically, my husband found himself with some extra time before a show we had scheduled at McCaw Hall. He has been craving salmon ever since I put some Copper River on the BBQ a few weeks ago, and told me to make reservations. It was a gorgeous, hot day here in Seattle, so the usual suspects around Lake Union were booked for the time we needed. Fortunately for us, Flying Fish offered the perfect time. I had the smoked saki marinated black cod (some menus call it sable fish) with their signature salad, and Mark had the salmon with their poached pear salad. I ordered off the menu , but Mark made some changes (mixed greens instead of radicchio for his salad, and risotto instead of potatoes with his entree). They were gracious and accommodating, charming and fast. We ended up being early for our show! Love this place!

A group of us from a conference got together at the Flying Fish, and were delighted by the quality of the food. The portions were generous too- my sister and I shared the excellent halibut entree and (with an appetizer) were very satisfied. I also recommend the lobster and shrimp tots! Everyone enjoyed the location, too, just steps from the Pike Place Market. A child in our group declared his burger 'delicious'...and caught 2 Pokemon while we were there! I'd definitely go again.

I went for lunch during the Dine Around promotion. The restaurant was not crowded at 1pm midweek--many diners left w/n 10 min of my arrival. Thus it is hard to evaluate the noise level when there are more patrons.

The food was excellent and the service was informed and attentive w/o being intrusive. I plan to return and have recommended it to friends.

My fiancé, his sister and I booked a last minute New Year's Eve dinner reservations Flying Fish and we all loved it! We were greeted warmly and the service was attentive and helpful. Our table was decorated with New Years hats and noise makers which made it feel so festive. We had the special pre fixe dinner and each ordered something different. My fiancé's sister is fairly picky and she said the salad was one of the best and the crusted ahi tuna was cooked just right. My scallops were also cooked to perfection. It was a really nice experience and I definitely recommend it!

A special thank you to the Manager for going the extra mile to be sure that we had a positive dinning experience on New Year's Eve. We didn't want the fixed price menu that was the special for that evening and the Manager personally called us to be sure that we were aware that the Happy Hour menu would also be available. We were very pleasantly surprised and pleased with that information so that we could still enjoy the excellent food and service that is the hallmark of The Flying Fish. We try to have a meal at the Flying Fish several times during the year when we are visiting Seattle and would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone that appreciates great food and service.
