The scallop starter was very good. The fish was excellent (although the chips were not so good) but overall a very nice meal.

Had pre-booked three tier fish tasting menu. The first tier of a variety of deep fried fish was all stuck together and just dumped on the plate with no skill or effort. The second tier of grilled fish was nice, the top tier of shellfish was completely drowned in watery ice and too cold to enjoy.

Our waiter’s English was really poor and we could barely understand what she was telling us.

Ambiance was nice and the furnishing comfortable. Won’t be going back again.

We really enjoyed our meal at Fishworks. We chose from the pre-theatre menu. The scallops were delicious and a very generous portion. The spicy mackerel was also delicious, and very spicy. Service was attentive and pleasant. Will definitely go again.

Lobster was small and dry, considering paying £40 for it.
Our waitress was on her own during peak dinner time covering the whole basement floor. She was very nice and as attentive as she can be. Could do with more staff.

Nice front of house. Waiter was good although a little hard to get anyone's attention at end of meal to get bill. Scallops were delicious, dressed crab was nice but I have had better, tuna was good too. Nice place.

We live in NYC, and Fishworks has been our reliable quality meal in London during our previous visits. Which is why this time it was so disappointing. We previously ate at their Marylebone and Piccadilly locations , this was our first visit to the Covent garden location. Bread was stale, butter was cold and hard to spread, olive oil was bitter , young potatoes were undercooked. Also, I seem to recall that the other two locations had tablecloth, this one featured bare table tops and student dorm type chairs. I hope this is just this location and not the entire franchise going down

The big seafood platter is very nice, value for money. Raw seafood is very fresh, and the crab roe is wonderful. Grilled prawns and fish have exceeded my expectations.

Service was very polite and attentive, but each course was very slow in coming and the first courses were cold - one of our party sent their cold soup back My prawns were served on a stone cold plate. We did not have a desert due to the slowness of service.

I’ve visited Fish works before in July 2019 and I really enjoyed it. I brought my mum in September 2019 for my mums birthday and she was reallly surprised. When I told her I was taking her for fish and chips she was expecting a classic chippy but was very pleasantly surprised by the decor, service and food (not in that order). Will be recommending this restaurant to everyone!

Made reservations to experience great seafood in Covent Garden and were not disappointed. The location is ideal, and the ambiance inviting and classy. There were offerings of fresh ‘catches of the day’ as well as three selections of oysters from the bar. Our waiter was attentive, ensuring nothing was missed - even if he had to cover for the missing bartender that evening. We ordered a course of oysters to start, followed by lobster and fish entrees paired with glasses of white wine from a magnum. Capped with a few traditional desserts and port, the dining experience was amazing. Details, like lemon water to clean fingers and large lobster crackers, added to the excellence. I understood that Fishworks is a recent opening where another similar restaurant stood. They’re off to a running start, in my humble opinion. Thank you.

We had the sea food platter for two, a great selection of sea food dishes. The restaurant ought to provide wet wipes due to handling of shell fish. The portion was a bit large, if you order a started you won't be able to finish. The service was great and would definetly go there again.

A few olives for £3.50 and some stale bread at £4.00 was steep! Prawns seemed old and tasteless however the manager did deduct. Linguine and sea bass excellent! Loved the espresso pana cotta!
