Located on Conshohocken’s main drag, Black Fish couples a simple, unpretentious dining experience with confident cooking. Owned and operated by Chef Charles “Chip” Roman, a Vetri and Perrier trained chef; Black Fish is a gem in this Philadelphia suburb. Packed to the gills every night, this BYOB storefront restaurant highlights seasonal ingredients and fresh seafood. Progressive American cuisine with French influences, fine sensibility and simple elegance make Black Fish a favorite among locals, as well as diners searching for fine-dining in a relaxed intimate atmosphere.
The ambience and decor complement the exquisite dishes perfectly. I have a weakness for duck and let us say that I am quite happy with The duck at Blackfish to put it mildly, and I can't wait for the Tuesday Chef's selection. Come and taste Chef Roman's creations.
Went to Blackfish to celebrate the success of one of my sales managers. Invited his wife to join a great dinner. Except the service is the worst I have ever experienced. We all ordered the 3 course dinner and 2 had an additional course-dessert. We ordered in a timely fashion and tried to have a nice experience. The GM however, demanded we leave during the the final course as he wanted to sit more people. He was nasty and when we tried to understand what was going on--he truly demanded we leave so he could clear the table for someone else. This restaurant sacrifices customer service in order to sit as many as they can. Do not expect a night of fine dining and fine service and a relaxing evening. it is anything but that. Stay away and find a real upscale spot.
Just found out the GM at Black Fish removed my reservation from Open Table who I used for the reservation. Looks like he does not want a review to show anyone else how bad the service can be. If this is how the restaurant works I would avoid it. Learning from mistakes or bad employees only makes an establishment better. In this case they want it hid. Stay away
