Great bang for your buck – Three Fish fills a valuable spot in the Twin CIties dining community: it is easy to access, has free parking, has an inexpensive and accessible menu, a broad range of wine options and a great waitstaff.
Despite having reservations we had to wait for a table since the table they had for us was in the bar and I have bad allergies. Instead of treating this as a huge inconvenience, the staff was realy very accomodating. We were given complimentary cocktails while we waited for a new table and were seated before we finished our drinks. I'd go back simply from this type of customer first servicing alone.
My husband's scallops were great, tender, smoky and buttery. I had the sea bass special on a creamy risotto. The service was prompt and our waitress was knowledgeable about the menu and the wine selections.
Consistantly Terrific – The food almost without exception is the finest and most consistent available in the city. The service has been consistently above average. With the exception of the jerk who panned the restaurant back in 2002 out of vitriol the remainder of us are of one accord. You should scrub his rating for sheer deviation.
Swim with the fish – With very few moderately-priced seafood restaurants in this city, I am glad that Three Fish not only exists, but has hit the mark so well. My girlfriend and I were very impressed with each of our entrees--seared scallops with saffron risotto for me and linguine with lobster, artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes for her. There are a number of selections I would like to go back for, and I hope that the two specials make it back on the menu (pepper-crusted swordfish and striped sea bass). Banana bread pudding with a fizzy mango-passion fruit float and gingersnap napoleon followed the meal very well. The service was prompt and well-timed.
Delightful – Went here for a business lunch. Terrific salmon -- one of the best I'd had anywhere. Atlantic salmon, but as tender and tasty as the Copper Rivers I've had elsewhere. Nice atmosphere -- nothing special. Server was a bit flaky, but we got everything we needed and he was attentive. Prices are decent, lots of lunch items under ten, and I don't think anything was above $13.
wow..a perfect 10! – There are few restaurants that have impressed my wife and friends as much as this one. From our waiter to the food quality, everything here is first class! Top notch innovative fresh seafood and very warm and friendly service. This place is a 10+
no longer for grandma – OK, the food was good before, but now the place is coming alive. Can you beleave it, three fish actually has a great bar menu. We tried this place again (although my kids objected). Well next time they will go back a lot easier!!!! We got seated in the diningroom and when the kids mentioned to the server that they didn't want the kids meal (they feel to old for that) the server actually offered them to eat what was on the bar menu. You know what, it worked, the kids had a chicken sandwich with garlic fries and a fish and chips (they call it fish fry). My husband and I had the special menu ($15.95), which I found to be a great value. You know what, I think they call it a value menu, or something like that.
FABULOUS BAR STAFF..SERVICE – WE WERE IN FOR A REPEAT VISIT OVER THE WEEKEND! OUR DRINK AT THE BAR WAS PAIRED WITH SOEM FRIENDLY AND LIVELY CONVERSATION WITH THE FEMALE BARTENDER. WE FELT SOOO WELCOMED AS USUAL....OUR SERVER IN THE DINING ROOM WAS A CUT ABOVE THE REST, AS WAS THE FOOD! I LOVE THE SCALLOPS AND THE NEW ESCOLAR FISH WAS A DELIGHT. WE RETURNED TO THE BAR FOR AN AFTER DINNER DRINK, AND REALIZED WE REALLY LIKE THE BAR HERE. ITS COZY, BEAUTIFUL AND QUIET. I WISH THERE WAS A TV OR BETTER MUSIC, IT COULD BE A REGULAR BAR SPOT WITH A LITTLE MORE ENTERTAINMENT. KEEP THE BARTENDER...DARK HAIR AND A PERSONALITY THATS SECOND TO NONE!!!!
a real gem! – This warm, inviting restaurant is our new favorite! We tried three fish on advice from friends and were so pleased that we are going back this week again. Friendly and personable service from the time we walked in the door until we departed. The food was exceptional. Fresh, creative and very tasty. The prices were very reasonable. We dined on a weeknight and for less than $16 per person we had two fabulous courses, salad and entree. we also chose a bottle of wine for $20. Three Fish is a real gem and we are looking forward to many more meals on the horizon!
Quality Revisited – After trying three fish last summer when it opened, we decided to go back when things were not "so busy". To our delight, the restaurant was superb! We found several new changes, mainly a pasta section for our guests that do not eat fish and several items priced below $14. The quality and presentation were outstanding and the service was genuinely friendly and timely. What a neighborhood gem!
