Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really enjoyed this place. We got the clay pots which was interesting. It was heated at our table and you cook the meat in the soup. All the food tasted great and the service was very good.

Our best total eating out experience in Carmel and the area. From being seated at a requested quiet table by the owner to having an excellent waiter (Richard I think) serving use perfectly prepared excellent food. Have been before and will definitely dine here again.

Our new favorite restaurant in Carmel! We just happened to stumble upon the Flying Fish Grill by accident and are so glad that we did. The food, beverage choices and service was outstanding. It was actually the best meal that we had in our 4 day stay in Carmel. We also enjoyed the rustic and cozy atmosphere. Incredible attentive staff without being obnoxious. Just perfect!

Pedro, Richard and Christina took great care of us. The scallops and shrimp on fettuccine with a taste of curry was terrific as was the seafood medley on angel hair. Great misty weeknight in Carmel at a nicely real restaurant.

Our waiter appeared to be a trainee and informed us of a 25% increase in the price of dinner AS he served us the dish. We didn't want to spoil a romantic dinner by arguing -- probably should have told him that wasn't acceptable but sent the message by taking it out of his gratuity. Definitely NOT a top ranked restaurant and the prices match the rating- very high. Seabass was excellent. Decor was dark.

Excellent quality food. Attentive service. Any item is good, but the Chilean Sea Bass, even though it is a challenged and non-sustainable fish, is superb.

Delicious fish dishes and great service. The Yin Yan Salmon was particularly a favorite, and the sherbet selection were a satisfying end to a delicious meal

The food here is great and it's always been one of our "go to" places in Carmel. Unfortunately, the last time we were there we had a bad experience. As many know, Carmel is an extremely "dog friendly" town. That said, pets are not supposed to be allowed in restaurants. But, some ignore the health laws. We were enjoying our meal when a couple came in with a large (non service) dog, who proceeded to noisily chomp on a big chew stick. It wasn't a positive addition to the ambiance. After the dog had chewed a bunch of it, he threw up in front of us while we were eating. It was unappetizing, to say the least. Nobody apologized to us for the disappointing experience and when we mentioned it to the owner/manager as we left, he seemed very defensive and we left feeling as though somehow we were in the wrong for saying anything. So, while their food is good, we will probably look elsewhere the next time we're in Carmel.

Hello Marlene, first of all I want to thank you for supporting us in the past and complimenting on the quality for the time you have been dining at the Flying Fish Grill. As you mentioned we did talk about what happened and I wasn’t defensive at all. Mostly just listening how you felt. By the way your server apologized and so did I. I mentioned to you ,that we can ask only one question ,which is “ is it service dog?” If the answer from customer is yes. I have no other rights or option to investigate and will definitely not argue with the dog owner about it. You didn’t seems to like that answer that time. Week later you called me and expressed your feelings about the whole thing again. We were on the phone for over 10 minutes, we covered a lot of angles and points from your or my side. At the end of the call I felt that you understood. I am not really sure now , while responding your review and comments again. You are claiming in your review that the dog is not a service dog. Not really sure how you can make that claim. Warm regards Honza - owner

Great fish. I had the halibut in parchment and my husband has the Ahi Tuna. Both excellent. No appetizers but they do bring sort of wonton tortilla chips with a great pico de Gallo. My husband had an ice cream sundae which seemed “eh”. Probably just get the plain ice cream. Plan to pay in cash to save 3.5%.

This is our all time favorite restaurant. We live over 100 miles away, so we don't get there often, but the food, service and ambiance are all 5 star. We have never had a bad meal there. The food is superbly prepared. The wait staff are attentive and friendly, but not over bearing. I highly recommend you give it a try next time you are in Carmel.

A little dark in terms of lighting but has its charm, the food was good. Not super refined but fresh and tasty. Cocktail lovers know that they only serve beer, wine and sake. Would recommend if you’re in the mood for Asian cuisine.

This place was recommended to us and what a disappointment. The food was unfortunately unmodern and unsophisticated. Really not up to standard. It was almost like it hadn’t changed since the 90’s. The same was the case of the interior, dark and unmodern like an old-fashioned sushi place. The air was also bad. My food was salty and sloppy. My husband’s food was tasteless. The starter was better. The service however was friendly and competent. Don’t go here, there are plenty of other good restaurants in Carmel. This was by far our worst food experience on the Monterey peninsula.

The restaurant is casual and quaint but the seafood is superb! We had halibut baked in parchment paper which was a great presentation and moist and delicious. They have an appetizer of fried wontons with salsa which is great! The staff are amazing and interesting and exceptionally helpful in giving us touring advice, Especially for little known gorgeous spots to see and visit. We loved our experience here!
