I chose Firefish because it was new, had good write ups and seemed to serve super seafood. I also booked for our first night after arriving in CT to make it easy.
We were not disappointed. The food and service were excellent. So we thought that our choice to return on NYE was a good one.
We arrived and were taken to a front line table under cover just as it started to rain. It had been forecast and the rain covers were down but the roof was leaking so much we had to be moved inside temporarily. We were given a glass of bubbly and an amuse bouche of oysters. Delicious.The situation worsened over the following hour which added to the stress on the manager and staff but they dealt with it in an ordered way which didn’t meet everyone’s expectations! We eventually moved to another table near the front again and within minutes the heavens opened again soaking several guests.
We had been served our starters at this stage. Mine was crab which was so tasty and some of the best that I have eaten. My husband had seared tuna. Both wow starters! Sadly our neighbours had put up their umbrellas at this point and were eating one handed.
We asked them to join us at our table out of the rain!
Our main courses arrived later, My ribeye steak cooked to perfection, my husband’s tiger prawns also excellent.
Our desserts came in due time and this finished off a very good evening in the rain.
I would certainly go back to Firefish as the standard of food for the money , was excellent.
A few softer touches for dinner might help the ambience, tablecloths, candles and flowers.......
