We haven't been to Blackfish for awhile due to the pandemic but on a recent visit we found the food as delicious as always. We had the 5-course tasting menu and enjoyed it immensely. Can't wait to go back.

The Branzino with curry sauce was an outstanding dish. When we asked, the waiter told us the curry sauce was prepared over days and it showed with outstanding flavor. The wait staff was professional and attentive, but not overly attentive.

Everything was just perfect. We ate outside which is on the sidewalk and not ideal - but that aside, the food was perfection and the staff friendly, efficient and not overbearing. What a fabulous restaurant.

The only vegetarian option was bursts salad and a plate of grilled vegetables, so it’s not vegetarian friendly if anyone in your party has restrictions.

The food was delicious. And the chef was first class when instead of just warming up two of the fish entrees that were somewhat undercooked, he made two fresh platters. Pricing was a little steep given the small portions, but overall it was a very fine dining experience

This place is about the food. Minimalist decor - clean, simple, and nice, nothing to distract from the delicious and beautifully presented food. The noise level was distracting due to a large party next to us, which did detract from our experience unfortunately. And on a weeknight, the normally delicious bread had a texture that implied it had been reheated (it’s a highlight when it’s fresh). But it’s still my favorite restaurant in the area, and I will go back again and again…but maybe not on a weeknight.

Dinner was excellent. We’ve been out to eat outdoors post pandemic at several of our favorite restaurants and most have been just mediocre, but Blackfish did a great job.
We sat outside, and Fayette St has some noisy trucks but we were happy to be with friends, great food and a chilled bottle of Chardonnay.

I have been to Blackfish many, many times over the years and was most excited for them to reopen after closing for COVID. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed last evening. The space was so load it was hard to enjoy our meal. With the new seating outside, they had more tables than they could properly serve. It took 20 minutes to get our wine opened and poured and 15 minutes to order and get bread. The food was also simply not up to the standard we have grown accustomed to. We hope this is just the challenges of a restart. We will try again in a few months.

We had a phenomenal dinner. The service is impeccable. The entire staff works together like a relay team and the entire staff works together to service all tables. What fine dining should be like. Food is seasonal and very good. I had the vegetable platter and it would convince any person to become a vegetarian. I think with Covid we all forgot what fine dining should be like. Blackfish has it down pat. Veronica was our main waitress and she was the best. We were there for our anniversary and they really made us feel special

My husband and I went to Blackfish for an anniversary dinner. We'd been there many times in the past, however, this was first time since the pandemic. While it was good, I was disappointed that they didn't have my favorite entree on the menu which was the Short Ribs. Most of the menu items were for some type of fish. There were only 1 or 2 entrees that weren't fish and the same was true for the appetizers. I ended up getting the mushroom ravioli which was very good, however I didn't go there expecting to get ravioli which I could've gotten at many restaurants. I'm not sure I'll return as the restaurant doesn't have a good selection for people who aren't fish lovers.
I will say that the dessert I got which was creme brûlée was delicious. Also while we did go early, the room got very noisy and the ambiance wasn't the best.
