Tried this place three times: the month they opened, about 6 months later, and then about 3 years after that. The first time I was impressed with the efforts to make the place a "Seattle upscale" sort of restaurant experience, with fancy linens and a...More

Ive been there twice and wont return. Overpriced and the food was not that good. I find it amazing that this place is still in business. Dont bother going here.

The Big Fat Fish Co. should be an excellent restaurant. It is very attractive and the menus are inviting. Regretfully, the delivery is not so good. Food can be delicious or just mediocre. Portions can be too puny for the prices charged, with a lot...More
