“Limited Menu, EXCELLENT Chocolate Torte”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

For a seafood restaurant, the variety of fish on the menu was VERY limited, but everything that we ordered was excellent and very flavorful. The chocolate torte was beyond description - definitely the best I have ever had (and that is saying something). I would go again just for that dessert. A little pricey, though...

“Made our event extra-special!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

We had a fairly large group for a family reunion and upon our arrival, Gianna and Chris escorted us to the event room in the back where they had several tables set up and a nice bar. I guess Chris brought in a couple extra wait-staff for that evening because we were waited upon hand and foot. We had the whole area to ourselves, so our family members who hadn't seen each other for a while had plenty of space and time to talk. Then we got busy with the meal. Chris had e-mailed me a "banquet menu" so my family members would not be overwhelmed with choices which I reviewed a few days before-hand. The menu met with the family's universal approval. 10/10 - great place for a group event. (Also the menu was prix-fixe, so that helped with budgeting.)

We were in town for a family reunion with a group of 30 people. We had a nice back room to ourselves. The food was delicious. (Fish -n- Chips and Blackened Rockfish). Service was great. Ambiance nice. Very enjoyable evening.

“finally thought we'd try it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

The Oly Rockfish is a little further up the hill from the main part of downtown so we don't think about it as often. This time we decided to break with our usual pattern and try it out. They did not disappoint us, but it was not a wow either. The food was good - no doubt about it - and the service was what we expected. Since I have a food allergy, the server checked with the chef to make sure there were no risks in the dish. I always appreciate it when they do that kind of thing. The interior decor is pleasant though the table for two was a bit small and felt cramped.
Over all a good meal at a reasonable price.
