Reasonable, not exceptional seafood — Good service. Finally, we finished and waited another fifteen to twenty minutes for the waitress to notice us as we actively tried to gain her attention. Our chefs and catering staff understand the special one-of-a-kind nature of your event and are here to take care of you. Calamari was too greasy and more chewy than crunchy. We will for sure be back again next time we are in the area! And the waitress was very lovely and friendly and the price was really good. Whoever visits Cape May or WildWood, this place should be on your dining list! The mussels in a garlic flavor red soup was the best I have ever had.
I could go on for another two paragraphs about how bad the food and service was. Not only could we not hold a conversation after that, but I also didn't think the food was worth the wait and our night was. Chef Ryan Allenbach age 36 opened One Fish, Two Fish in June of 2012 after finding a location to showcase his unique cooking style. I was walking down the street looking for a place for lunch and stumbled into this nice little Asian cafe. The veal chop was the only thing not sampled. Upon arrival, we were told they were running a little behind schedule.
This place is a front for a hangout very inappropiate for eating, I dont know why the Health Dept. 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. But this place is as good as those places. The brownie is freshly baked, the ganache is heavenly and how can you hate on good ice cream? 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. Ultimately, we left some money on the table and, as we walked out, asked if she was working or not.
My husband planned a nice New Years' Eve dinner out for us, got reservations there, set up a sitter and bought me a dress to wear. The ambiance in the room is unimpressive aside from the low lights and the view. There was a private party going on in the dining room at 37 North, so we just made the short walk through the marina to One Fish Two Fish. We each had a ddiffetent entree: shrimp and crab scampu, seared ahi, salmon, and fried halibut. To their credit they said they would make it right, but by that time we had decided to go elsewhere.
I'd definitely stay away and have no intention of returning. I wouldn't return to this place even if it was free of charge. The Staff is extra friendly and the seafood is just great. We ordered the mussels, burger, and crab roll. If this place were in the city, I am sure it would have been so packed!!! All menu items are prepared from scratch on site.
Would go back for this only bar. Overall, looks and feels like a mediocre City Island restaurant on upper-upper Madison Avenue. We shared an order of the Bloody Mary mussels, yum! If you catch them on a bad day, your food may have rubber bands or glass mixed in the food, dumplings delivered without dipping sauce or delivered without a lid so it's everywhere but where you need it , or just delivered cold. We ordered the mussels, burger, and crab roll. Proudly serving a unique take on Southern Jersey Shore classics. I am sure it's packed during summer time though Anyway, we were so happy that we found this place. Because we waited so long for our table, we decided not to ask for a different table because we feared we would be waiting another hour for one.
He also mentioned that we were not the only ones that complained about the noise level of the band. I went with my girlfriend for dinner but changed our minds after the lousy service. She ran off to look busy, but it didn't help. We had no idea we would be waiting to be seated for over an hour. The food is usually bland or over cooked and the service is dismal. When sat at our table, I noticed there was a stage and big speaker set up directly behind my seat.
Lobster bisque had a sufficient amount of shrimp maybe it should have been shrimp bisque. Sure, the menu appears to be great, but don't let that fool you! I'm not saying it was terrible, but for an upscale, expensive restaurant, I expected a lot more. An adequate spot and not much more. It was off-season, so the town was so dead with no people, so there were only 2 groups including us sitting for Sunday brunch. The noise level makes it very hard to converse.
What a treat to enjoy such wonderful restaurant dining! Chef owned and operated since 2012. Instead of fulfilling our individual orders, the kitchen made 5 of one thing. So, enjoyed the night but would want a table outside unless acoustics improve. For some reason, you have to ask a couple times for water and the check. We always ask for Michaela because she is an outstanding server.
Sadly, it was the same mediocre, over-priced food the second time. Once we were seated, we were forgotten about. She also sees clients by appointment. One Fish-Two Fish will make your private dining event memorable. Because we waited so long for our table, we decided not to ask for a different table because we feared we would be waiting another hour for one.
