We always go looking for the new and unique restaurants in charleston and this one hit the mark. Great food with a very slight Asian influence. The flavor and preparation was excellent. Our waiter Paul was as excited about the menu as were were to be there. Attention to every detail great meal the best of our trip so far.... More

Great cocktails, food, service - what more could you ask of a restaurant.Oh, you could ask for world class deserts - got that also! A fantastic combination of French and Asian.

This restaurant is special. While the atmosphere is fine and the service attentive and professional, it is the food that stands out. I ordered the Atlantic SeaBass in a coconut fume, and savored every bite. But, surprising, the roasted baby carrots were equally as good. 5 stars without reservation.

We enjoyed Fish very much. The dining room was small and unassuming, very casual. The appetizer menu was creative, including several Asian-inspired seafood dishes. We tried the grilled octopus and scallops with turnip puree. The scallops were particularly good, and the turnip puree was worth the trip to the restaurant by itself. The entree was good, if somewhat confusing--fish of... More

Came here once again for their unique Asian/French food preparation and we enjoyed our meal tremendously. We started with some of their handcrafted cocktails which were all delicious. Two of us had the charred octopus app and the other had the scallops app. All were great. Our entrees were the Szechuan lamb, seafood hot pot and catch of the day.... More

I came here with a group and my initial impression was very good since we were in an upstairs room to ourselves with great decor and acces to a charming balcony porch. We had a preset menu with limited options since we were a large group and normally that is great. The first course, a salad, was ho hum. Good,... More

We were disappointed when meals were soaked in spice. Chef uses interesting flavors, but has not mastered fine line when dealing with seafood...Instead of complementing delicate flavors, they were beaten by heavy hand. One guest had soft shell crab special... Which tasted like something from an old-fat deep fryer; only shape of crabs hinted at delicate taste lost. Another guest... More

Had dinner in the up stairs room. Good service, tasty food, higher ceilings help to decor and give space to the room. Wish they had more on the menu for lactose intolerant eaters.

Fish is not a typical seafood restaurant in spite of its name. Everything served has an Asian flavor and the menu is varied enough to find a dish that is appealing. Four of us shared delicious calamari and sausage appetizers and our entrees included a striped bass which was the "Day Boat Catch" and wonton noodles. The lemongrass panna cotta... More
