    GT Fish and Oyster is very homey BUT has a modern elegance, also. The manager, CT, provided the BEST service I have EVER had. Great personality and very knowledgeable about everything on the menu. He made the experience feel like we had known him forever. However, the food, although delicious, isn’t worth the price tag. My fiancée wasn’t a fan of the oysters but loved the crab legs. Very underwhelmed for the amount of money I spent in the food department. The menu is very limited as well. Literally oysters and a small fish sample.

    Always the best of everything - the food, the staff, the vibe. The soft shell crab (seasonal) and the tropical cheesecake dessert were highlights but the fish tacos are always the best anywhere on earth.

    My wife and I went for a happy hour. We ordered 1 drink and 4 oysters each plus a half mussel. The bill after tip was over $80. The mussel dish came with 11 mussels- 5 of which were closed and 3 of which were so gritty we didn't eat them. I have no issue paying for a high quality meal, but this was very far from it.

    Birthday celebration dinner, oysters excellent, champagne served properly cold, very nice Albarino. Fish and chips well prepared (thought fries better at GT Prime) trout was excellent. Great service. Noise level quite high.

    This was my first time to GT Fish. The staff, service, drinks, and food was excellent but pricey. The quality, though, is top notch. My only complaint is that the restaurant is loud. In part, this is due to the busyness and everyone having a go time.

    Two issues that turned what would have been a 5 star experience into less was the Hostess and the “Benefit Surcharge” that came with the bill. We arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation and was told that it would be another few minutes which was fine. Well 30 minutes later I go up to the hostess and asked about our table and by her surprised response she realized she had forgotten us! We were seated within 5 minutes after that. Now the oysters were fantastic and both of our main meals including the seared scallops and halibut were outstanding. But what we didn’t realize was when presented the bill there was a “Benefit Surcharge” of $7.20 which when explained by the embarrassed waiter was for the Employee Health Program. Talk about putting your employee/ server in a very awkward situation that then puts the customers in the same situation is not acceptable and if we ever go back will not pay it next time. I know restaurants have had it tough over the past two years but on this Tuesday night it was a packed house! The owners need to reconsider a better way to pass off their unwanted expenses onto their paying customers.

    We were welcomed and seated immediately in spite of being late for our reservation. We noticed that the temperature was a bit warm and the server told us the air conditioning was not working as well as they like. Our requests for ice in our water glasses were met often and kindly. The salad we split was wonderful, our main dish was delicious halibut and our dessert was a wonderful chocolate torte Our disappointment was the noise level. It was hard to carry on a conversation in the high noise level.

    My husband and I had drink specials to start, then oysters and the crudi with a glass of wine, next their classic fish and chips then halibut. Everything was delicious. The service was phenomenal and they paced everything out as we shared each plate. We will definitely be back!

    The bartender was attentive and friendly. Our food server was OK although he brought us the wrong check. It was 300.00 more then ours. As for the food the roasted oysters were very good but my mussels had no taste at all. I must admit I was very disappointed.

    To start, the people here are super attentive and personable, they truly made me feel like I was talking with a good friend. I ordered a dirty martini and it was made to perfection. You can’t go and not order the oysters, they have a nice variety of east/west types and they shuck each one to order so you’re guaranteed to get the freshest experience. But nothing prepared me for how good the trout entree would be.. it was the best fish I’ve ever had. The delicate trout was perfectly balanced with a lightly dress frisee salad on top of roasted potatoes, cioppolini onions, and the most luxurious Beurre blanc made with Trout roe. I savored every bite and can’t express enough how delicious this dinner was!
