Perfect Family Dinner – We had a dinner reception with just family and friends - maybe 12 of us. They gave us a private room which has an incredible atmosphere. And food was just delicious. Calamari was perfect .. yummm. Fish was soooo fresh. They are not only good at seafood because I remember having a piece of steak melting in my mouth.I recommend to anyone.
easily stated WONDERFUL!! – I visited fresh last week after reading a lot of reviews that were mostly very good. I wanted to see for myself if it was that good. The meal ended up being better then expected! The service was great, the presentations of the dishes were stunningly beautiful, and not like most restaurant the dishes tasted better then they looked. As a told the very welcoming gentlemen in the suit I will return soon.
Simply SUPERB on every level... the food, wine, decor, and service are all 5-star!! – Everything at Fresh exceeded our expectations. We stumbled upon this place early on a Friday evening while walking around Tribeca, and were lured in by the beautiful decor which we could see from the sidewalk through the large open windows. We liked the looks of the menu so decided to have an early dinner on the spur of the moment.
Every single dish we ordered was absolutely delicious. The flavors were creative but did not overwhelm the taste of the fresh fish. The highlights were the shrimp with avocado terrine (shrimp are flown in alive daily from hawaii), the scallops with foie gras, the sauteed eggplant, and the fresh ice cream cones. The staff were all exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable, and the new chef (Mike) even came out twice to greet us and see how we liked our food.
We eat out often and are somewhat jaded by upscale restaurants that survive off their reputation rather than their quality and service. We give this restaurant a rare 5-star rating and will be back soon!!
freshest and most unique seafood menu! – Haven't visited fresh in over a year but I read in the times about a new chef coming aboard so I gave it another shot. Glad I did the menu was so interesting and all the dish we had were super flavorful and presented beautifully. I had the heirloom tomato salad with pickled watermelon and the kona kampachi crudo both were wonderful.
A group of us went and celebrated a friend's birthday at fresh last night. The atmosphere was great, service was very fast, friendly and accommodating. The food, we all agreed, was excellent and indeed fresh. Highly recommended.
Worst Restaurant – After a good run fresh restaurant is not so fresh anymore. Limited menu and limited options made me want to go somewhere else. I expected exotic and received ordinary, The service was awful, the waiter did not know anything about seafood or wine to pair with it.
Skip it and try something else. Fresh was fresh, skip it and try something else
good – This is a really great place, with awesome, friendly staff and an amazing chef! The food really is fresh and simple, but still inovative.
Perfect! – The Food: The food was amazing! I am a huge seafood fan and my boyfriend...not so much. However, we both LOVED Fresh. From the appetizers to the dessert the food was creative, yet not complicated or drowned in sauces or heavy seasoning. By the time we had to choose a dessert I said, "pick anything on the menu, even if it doesn't sound too appetizing, I'm sure they do something amazing to it and it will be wonderful.
The Service: Professional, friendly, and very polite (even though we walked in one minute before the kitchen closes)
We eat out all the time, and have gone to all of the "recommended" NYC restaurants. OFTEN we are very disappointed since many NYC "hot spots" are grossly overrated. Fresh is definitely one of my top 3 restaurants here. P.S. for those of you not too into seafood, even their steak was PERFECT.
My only complaint is when I asked the waiter if he recommends us ordering side dishes, he said no because the plates were plentiful. I disagree. We definitely didn't leave hungry, but next time we go (which will be soon) I will order a separate side dish with my meal.
wonderful! – I went here for my birthday with my husband and it was perfect. They had great, honest service and amazing food without crazy prices. Try the lobster bisque and the clam chowder...they are frothed or something like that and it is great!
Great food, great staff, get ready to spend – Everything was as advertised. Food was great, service was great. My 3 course dinner for 2 with a moderate bottle of wine came out to $400. Given that seafood was fresh, appetizers were delicious, service was great I did not mind the price tag. Do make reservations. if you want to eat in peace go as late as possible.
