Grillfish is a small restaurant so the focus is on on quality of food and service which I applaud. Our service was spectacular with the server offering excellent recommendations highlighting the menu. I had the mixed grill skewer—a choice I was happy since I couldn’t...decide which fish I wanted—everything on it was excellent. The side I ordered at the waitress’s recommendation was the pasta piccata which was the best I’ve had, very flavorful! Our table ordered oysters, my favorite was the boutique selection. Others order crab cakes to rave reviews. The fried fish platter and salmon blt received average praise. I highly recommend this restaurant for value, food quality and service!More

An excellent restaurant with a chilled and relaxed atmosphere with excellent service - Marcus was very polite and helpful and looked after our every need and was really helpful with menu choices. We had the prawn shrimp starter and the watermelon salad which were both...delicious followed by Surf and Turf and the Shrimp Marsala - both very tasty and cooked to perfection. Would recommend and would definitely visit again. As we were on honeymoon the desserts were complimentary which we so appreciated.More

Dining with Maya for a large dinner party celebrating my friends Birthday was awesome. Ryan behind the bar was making lots of good drinks and a mocktail too, Miss Jhey was managing all of our requests and she was a joy. Maya stayed on top...of everyone’s drinks and other needs all night. Our group got lots of different fish entrees and tacos as well as Ginger Calamari and Grilled Octopus apps, the house made desserts were great too! Thanks again GrillfishMore

The best thing about this restaurant is the friendly staff. Other than that, the food was poor, greasy and average at best, with an expensive price tag attached.

We happened to be in DC during Restaurant Week. Grillfish was a participant with a special three course menu and the restaurant was within walking distance from our hotel. It was a delightful evening. We enjoyed excellent service. I had fried risotto fritters for my...appetizer. I had never had it or even heard of it before, but it was wonderful. There were two balls, larger than a meatball, sitting on a sauce. I savored it. The server warned that the shrimp scampi was very garlicy, so I chose the piccata. Excellent. I enjoyed every bite. Husband had a soup that he didn't care for, so our server gladly replaced it with a beautiful salad. His entree was Atlantic salmon. Now, he grew up in Alaska and has eaten very fine salmon, and he thought his fish was very well prepared and he enjoyed the taste. For dessert, husband had coconut sorbet and I had a brownie sundae. Yum.More

I has an excellent meal at Grillfish. Deserts are excellent and made in house. Olivia was my server and she not only knew the menu but had excellent suggestions. If you are at the West End of DC check it out

I had an attentive bartender which is always appreciated. The Rockfish was well prepared and the mash potatoes are addictive. I left nothing on that plate. For my happy hour drink, I had Fish House Punch which was very good. The place decor reminded me...of something that would be in a vampire movie with the stacked melted candles and historic painting on the walls. Very dimly lit place but will definitely return.More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner. The scallops with zucchini and squash was excellent. My son said the surf and turf was also delicious, as the strip steak was cooked as requested and the shrimp were very tasty. Our waiter was friendly and helpful.

Best neighborhood restaurant we have visited, including more than 43 countries. Oysters fresh and tasty. Fish fresh, cooked to perfection with sauces on a 2 or 3 star Michelin. Craft beers well chosen. Veggies had a piquant flavoring to die for, Our waitress was funny,...charming, non-intrusive, quite accurate and greeted us warmly when we returned for another meal. Oh, by the way she was accurate. The bar has a grand antiquity from Europe worthy of the Metropolitan Museum in NY. This is a find.More

Despite being understaffed that night, the service was excellent. Tony (hope the name is right) was bartender but also serving our table and another. Somehow he managed to do it all at once and not appear harried. He explanations of the fish were helpful and...when I wanted Haddock but not the fried offering on the menu, he quickly said they could saute it with butter and lemon. It was beautifully cooked. My husband had Artic Char, a fish he'd never heard of but enjoyed. Katie, the manager, raced around the restaurant apparently taking care of everything; yet she had time to stop and chat with us. It's a small restaurant with a nice ambience. We would definitely eat there again if in the area.More
