Expensive, but excellent fish.
Coming to this restaurant is always a treat. The restaurant has a wide variety of tasty fish, which for me, has always come perfectly cooked. The sides like asparagus and plantains are just as delicious. There?s not a lot here though for people who want to order food not from the sea. Also, expect to spend at least around $20 per person on dinner.
NFish is one of my favorite "old reliables". Always a good meal with great service at a great price. I was just there last week with one of my pals who is going through an awful, awful divorce. I asked the waitress privately if there was anything she could do to cheer him up. She told me now to worry about it - she'd take care of everything. Well, wouldn't you know, about 10 minutes into our meal, here comes the waitress with a 25 pound WHOLE tuna (head and all) - she snuck up behind my friend and slammed him in the back of the head with the tuna. It was a great icebreaker. We laughed and laughed. Anyway, don't leave without trying the calamari - it is one of the best I've tasted. The sword is also consistently fresh and tasty.
I was just there last night with some co-workers and we all had a great time. The food was really delicious and fresh. The NF Sampler appetizer with the coconut calamari, popcorn shrimp and friend oysters was very tasty and perfect for sharing with a large group. I had the Paella Valencia, which was loaded with shrimp, mussels, tilapia, chicken, chorizo sausage and scallops. It was very spicy though, so be aware if you're not into spicy/hot dishes. Luckily for me, I love those kinds of dishes. The decor was really nice and the atmosphere was buzzing with businessmen/women. We were seated by the bar and it was almost too noisy to keep a conversation going, however, the delicious mojitos and food made up for it. I would recommend making reservations any day of the week for dinner at this Waltham location. Will most certainly come back!
I like the Naked Fish!.
I've only been to the Waltham location (I believe there are a couple others?) but I always have a good experience there. The food is priced pretty well, the ambience is comfortable and lively, and the seafood tastes fresh. Good clam chowdah and sangria too. They're good enough that I can forgive them for those awful commercials.
Popular local seafood chain differentiates itself from the competition thanks to a healthy dose of Latin flare.. The Scene Local couples and families tired of straightforward seafood preparations eschew other area chains' baked scrod and steamed lobster in favor of coconut-encrusted haddock and Brazilian fried calamari. Latin music fills the air and colorful Cuban-inspired drinks (raspberry mojitos, "mangoritas") dart through the room like tropical fish. Undulating lighting fixtures and calming color schemes evoke the sea, while pleasant servers and friendly bartenders keep the mood upbeat.
The Food Befitting a successful chain, Naked Fish offers a lengthy, varied menu that's sure to contain something for everyone. Prices are about what you'd expect to pay for fresh, sashimi-grade seafood, and portions are quite generous. Top starters include sesame-ginger popcorn shrimp and flaky, reasonably authentic beef empanadas. Patrons have a choice between having their seafood entrees prepared "naked" (wood-grilled and brushed with olive oil and lemon) or "not-so-naked" (pan-seared, steamed, stuffed). Desserts run from rich (decadent chocolate fudge cake) to fruity (frozen mango-meringue tart).
