We returned for a second time. Although the dining room with the open kitchen is small, we were seated at about our reservation time. We selected the scallops as the appetizer and the halibut for the main course. Both were well-prepared and outstanding. A good choice and worthy of its accolades.

They do love and know fish and it shows in their delivery. My wife and I started with their bread accompanied by a delightful chimichurri spread. Next up were two apps. The first was octopus which was unbelievably tender. The scallops which followed also were done to perfection. My wife had the trout which she raved about. I had the... More

Small, open concept kitchen serving delicious fish dishes. We've been there several times both alone and with friends. BYOB makes it reasonable. Only challenge us street parking.

Went to little fish last night, a great BYOB seafood place. It's in a very cool neighborhood with a small but very interesting seafood menu. I had the striped bass and it was amazing...

First, this restaurant is located at 746 S. 6th Street. The former Little Fish was at the Catherine Street address. Same place, same Chef, different location. This restaurant is just 2-4 seats larger, I believe it holds 22-24 seats. You watch the chefs cook the food. The wait staff is efficient and know the menu quite well. The menu is... More

By far my favorite restaurant in Philly. It's intimate and special and the food is out of the world good. If you're in Philadelphia, do yourself a favor and book a reservation here.

We were there with a friend from California who always took me to terrific restaurants when I was out there. We wanted to try the Sunday tasting menu as we thought that would be fun for him. Everything was delicious. I also enjoy watching the food preparation process while I'm there. The service is excellent, and, because of an unexpected... More

This was our first time eating at Little Fish and we were awed by the experience! The restaurant itself is super quaint and, while the tables were fairly close to each other, the room did not feel overly crowded or noisy. We really enjoyed watching the chefs - there certainly was a lot of attention to detail when putting a... More
