Sloppy personnel, arogant staff, they act like you need them. Almost like you have to beg for food. I went with my girlfriend for dinner but changed our minds after the lousy service. We had 2 beers & went to a real restaurant. This place is a front for a hangout very inappropiate for eating, I dont know why the Health Dept. lets them stay in bussiness.

This may be the worst restaurant I've ever been to!
Not only was the food the most disgusting I've ever eaten in a New York City restaurant, the service was the 2nd worst I've ever experienced (Curvao was the 1st, & they closed down).
Not a single server took our order for over 15 minutes, & the place was practically empty.
The New England Clam Chowder was edible, at best.
Have you ever known anyone who didn't finish their Shrimp Cocktail?...Neither have I.
I still feel ill from all of the food we barely ate, and two of us ordered for three people.
I could go on for another two paragraphs about how bad the food and service was.
Sure, the menu appears to be great, but don't let that fool you!
Do yourself a favor & don't eat there!

The staff a this restaurant is welcoming. The layout is not exactly unique but it is OK. The food is generally served with in a reasonable waiting period. The Salmon is just delicious which makes it all worth it for me. It is worth a try for those who love seafood.

The food & service is terrible ... the ambiance of the restaurant however is great. The food is usually bland or over cooked and the service is dismal. As long as they take to bring you your food you would assume that the food would be great. Not a nice place if you starving and expect prompt service.

Pros: Great Location

Cons: Slow Service and Lack of seasoning on there food

Yes, they offer drinks with lunch, and the $9.95 lunch prices are pretty decent for the area, but it's not worth it for the surly wait staff who forget about you completely, or treat you horribly. The food itself is mediocre at best. Their popularity stems from the fact that their only competition in the area is Hanratty's and that's a pretty mediocre place itself. I say skip it.

A very casual restaurant in all respects of service and decor. After guided to our table no menus were presented so my friend and I looked at the placemats and saw many listings but no info on the so-called Sunday Brunch (which was advertised in a local newspaper). No wait staff materialized for 10 minutes so I asked a a busboy about the Brunch offerings: he looked confused, pointed vaguely to a chalk board and then disappeared. There only 3 options on the Brunch menu and none of them involved egg related dishes. My friend and I opted for lobster rolls which were bland but edible. An adequate spot and not much more. Looks like a good cross-section of the neighborhood both North & South of 96th Street eats here. Overall, looks and feels like a mediocre City Island restaurant on upper-upper Madison Avenue.

Pros: Casual, service won't rush you out the door.

Cons: Too casual service and limited Brunch options.

Good service. Found the standard bread too buttery. Calamari was too greasy and more chewy than crunchy. Steamed fish arrived with very little preparation and an excessive amount of a highly liquid sauce. Salad was not cut up nor fresh. Lobster bisque had a sufficient amount of shrimp (maybe it should have been shrimp bisque.)

I have never had any complaints. The restaurant is always clean and in perfect condition. They have great food. The staff is always friendly too. Yes, it is usually packed, but that is a good thing. The restaurant has a variety of food. Far from mediocre.

Pros: You can just eat, just drink, hang out and listen to music or do all!

Cons: None

They have nothing on Francisco's Centro Vasco but they are alright. I have been to them on more than one occasion and the service is okay and the staff could be more outgoing. The positive is that they give coupons for the next visit but I haven't been back in awhile.

The place is a really a great place. The Staff is extra friendly and the seafood is just great. The portions are more than enough and the food always has flavor and seasoning. I am picky when it comes to seafood places some places you can taste the fishyness in the seafood but this place is really great and the price i dont think you cant beat. I remember one time i ordered a wine and i did not like it so the waiter took it back without a problem. The second one he brought I thought it was too bitter for my taste but i left it because i felt bad, he saw i was not drinking it and brought some soda and did not charge us! Writing this review, think i might go soon..I really cant express how clean, and wonderful the food is.

We stopped in one afternoon because my wife's been eyeing the place. We were quickly seated at a table whose paper place mats/menus still bore the stains of the previous guests. it took us fifteen minutes to get the waitress over to our table to take our order, but the salad quickly followed as did the meal. My clam chowder was mostly just salty cream with only a few bits of potato and maybe two pieces of clam. My wife's swordfish was unremarkable. Not terrible, but not what I'd expect from a ~$20 dish. The scallion sauce was nothing special (hint soy and scallion) and the broccoli was a bit overcooked.

Finally, we finished and waited another fifteen to twenty minutes for the waitress to notice us as we actively tried to gain her attention. Ultimately, we left some money on the table and, as we walked out, asked if she was working or not. She ran off to look busy, but it didn't help.

I'd definitely stay away and have no intention of returning.

I'm not to sure what the other reviewers were expecting from 1 Fish, 2 Fish. If you are expecting great seafood at a great price, then this is your place. Haven't found a place in the city (Brooklyn, Bronx included) that gives you the quanity and quality of seafood (especially crab legs) for such a good price. The food comes out quick, the proportions are good, and the food has always been on point. For some reason, you have to ask a couple times for water and the check. So the wait staff is not the greatest, but this is not Asia De Cuba fine dining folks. And this is not a burger joint (hence the name), so don't get a burger and complain about it. This is just good seafood.

Cons: service can be slow, and the bar can get jumping, which could be a pro or a con depending on what you want.

I went to brunch with a large group after running a road race in Central Park. The service was flighty and it took two hours for me to get my food AND when I finally got the meal it was all wrong. Instead of fulfilling our individual orders, the kitchen made 5 of one thing. The restaurants blase attitude and low quality food made me cross this spot off of my UES list of eateries. Terrible.

One fish is always packed on the weekends, but I don't know why. The food is mediocre at best. The positive is that the kitchen is open till 3. I know a bunch of people that got sick there however.
