Service was EXCELLENT, food was ok...slightly under seasoned.
Amazing night I had out. The food was on 100% and the waitress "Katie" was outstanding her service was warm her energy was well put. I had the crab cake, jasmine rice and the salmon salad with a cup of soup fantastic dinner and beautiful evening I had there! Keep up the awesome work chief's 😊
Such a great dining experience. Our server Mya was really great and helpful with us while ordering!
I thoroughly enjoyed the grilled artic char fish and grilled asparagus. The dessert was amazing. It was the best carrot cake I’ve had in a decade.
We chose Grillfish for our first covid-era dine-in experience because it was my partner's birthday and we always loved Grillfish in the Before Times. We went at 2:30 for a late lunch. The tables were thoughtfully spaced and we felt completely safe. Everything we ordered was absolutely fresh and delicious - a dozen oysters, three small plates, a salmon BLT, their luscious carrot cake, with a bottle of prosecco. The cake was served complete with ice cream and sparklers. A very festive and enjoyable experience! We'll be back soon.
A wonderful restaurant -one of our favorites!
Great for outside dining , fresh mussels and fish
Our server was amazing..the food however not so great. Which was surprising. The bronzino and bass were overcooked, the crab mac and cheese was bland. The drinks were great. Also it was extremely warm inside the restaurant. This use to be one of my favorites places to dine.
The food at this restaurant is amazing. The ginger calamari is a must, and the grilled fish so fresh! We also had excellent service. I wish the ambience was better, interior is a bit outdated and didn't have the best vibe for a Friday night, strange because it is in an great location and food wonderful.
Amazing food and nice atmosphere + great location
My cocktail was over priced and tasted very light. Food was superb both from taste and quality.
Food was mediocre. Service was ridiculously slow. Many better restaurant choices.
I went to Grillfish last weekend for the first time since COVID. It was literally the best it's ever been - and that's saying a lot, because I have always loved Grillfish! Everything we ordered was simply delicious. We ordered a dozen oysters, the grilled octopus, some seafood tacos and the mixed grill. We also ordered some of the sparkling sangria, which was amazing. I was completely blown away by how fresh and delicious everything was. And our server, Maya, was exceptional. I cannot wait to return.
Excellent fresh seafood, very reasonable prices and a friendly staff. Only reopened for a week but they were running smoothly. Patio is very comfortable.

I never leave reviews but we were all very impressed with Grillfish. Food was amazing!! And very reasonable compared to other seafood restaurants in town. Highly recommend:)
Everything was excellent.
Great service great food. Nice ambiance. Best shrimp scampi on a long time and they can accommodate gluten free 🥰
We had an exceptional dining experience at Grillfish. The food is freshly made and the customer service was great. The hostess welcomed us with, Happy Anniversary! We have enjoyed each visit and will return.
My favorite restaurant. Food always delish!!
I hadn’t been here in years but it was great to be welcomed back to the same great food and service I remembered.
Amazing food and even better customer service.
Good was good place nice, prices were I little to hi, parking was hard but food was amazing
Great shrimp scampi, crab cake app as well. Grill Fish is always fresh and amazing customer service. Outdoor seating was nice as well.
All the tables were spread out (some more than 6ft). I felt very safe.
They have done a wonderful job in creating a safe and enjoyable and delicious meal, whether indoors or out. The decorations for this time of year were also impressive. The waitress was so incredible warm and attentive to us.
It was the first time I have eaten indoors since February. Good job with social distancing and the servers wore masks (as we did). Service and food were LOVELY.
Amazing!!!!!! I love Grillfish and so glad I took a risk.
Food was not seasoned well, but the sauces made it a bit better
Amazing food and service!! The buffalo Shrimp pasta was just simply great
Excellently prepared seafood and attentive service. Love this place.
I was taking a stay-cation in the hotel around the corner. Grillfish was convenient and walking distance. I was seated promptly and spacious. My waiter offers meal suggestions with a short wait to enjoy delicious food.
Tried out the $1 oysters and it was great! Server was great also!
The atmosphere was nice and intimate. The appetizers and drinks were amazing. My husband had the trout and said he liked it. I had the lobster Mac n cheese with a skewer of shrimp, scallops, Mahi Mahi, salmon, and swordfish. My meal had absolutely no flavor at all. It tasted as if there was no seasoning or herbs at all. They do give you a sauce but the sauce was not enough to flavor the food. Will return once more just to give them another chance as the remaining experience was pleasant.
Soup was just OK. They should indicate on the menu that the California roll is fried, which was a bit odd.
Great food, and especially for the price. Would not hesitate to come back again.
Great, tasty food! Very attentive excellent service.
The buffalo shrimp are amazing. Lobster roll is also delicious.
Brought my Girlfriend for her Birthday and everything was perfect. The server was amazing and polite and the food was beyond amazing 11/10. Definitely will pick this spot again next time
