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!

Great food and great location near to several theatres! We had fish soup and prawns for starters: both were really tasty and yummy! Seafood platter and bouillabaisse as our mains: delicious!! The food and the wine selection are really good. Overall a really lovely meal in a nice setting. The service overall was good apart from the fact that I had booked a table specifically requesting a window seat, then on arriving was told there were no window tables for two people...only to see two other non-booked people arrive after us and be seated by the window. A small irritation in an otherwise very pleasant evening. We made use of the £20 off vouchers (available till 31st August) and ended up with £40 off our meal which was a bonus!

From the fresh chilling oysters and seafood to the fantastic and very classic bouillabaise, Fishworx was fantastic. The staff and service were also excellent and took care of our table of 5 beautifully and did not miss a step. Highly recommended across the board.

We will return, the service was patient and relaxed, food was excellent. Even with 2 dining we were offered a large table... a great positive. We were not hurried through our 3 courses and left saying that there is a lot more for us to experience on the menu.

We had a 5.30 sitting for a 7.30 show and due to very slow service and one of the dishes being very over cooked- the Dover sole which was the most expensive dish on their menu and something they supposedly specialise in (they did replace the dish)- we were in a rush and unable to enjoy our main courses.

We also saw another table leave before they received their meals due to poor service so clearly this is a trend.

The rest of the dishes we received were tasty but wouldn’t return here for a pre theatre meal!!

Booked for a pre theatre meal. Arrived at 5.15. Restaurant very crowded and noisy. Service very amateurish and slow. One hour before we had our first course and after a lot of reminders. The food could not be criticised but the stress and lack of concern by the staff ruined the whole occasion. Management really did not seem to care that several tables within our earshot were annoyed at the service or lack of it. Nobody asked why I refused to pay the "optional" 12 1/2% service charge. Obviously a regular occurrence. Front of house cram far too many diners in - the kitchen can't cope and the waiting staff are overwhelmed and under trained. Come back Loch Fyne half the price and twice the customer care.

Clean open space. Staff helpful.
The main problem was the cooking. A very expensive 1.2 kg monkfish for two had been chargrilled and was dried out and tasteless. We had to ask for some hot olive oil and fresh garlic to pour over it to give it some flavour. Staff need to take some tips from nearby Barrafina on how to cook fish properly.
Whitebait and tuna tartare starters were fine though.
