Flying Fish Restaurant Review

: Lake Union’s Flying Fish offers a menu of small plates, large plates and platters perfect for sharing that show off the fresh fish for which Seattle is known. Choose from carrot ginger soup, wild king salmon cakes and scallops in green curry sauce. Platters include mussels with chili lime dipping sauce, fried rockfish with pineapple anchovy sauce and grilled fish tacos. Not keen on fish? Buttermilk fried chicken will do nicely, as will the Painted Hills NY strip. For a sweet finish, we recommend the warm brownie with espresso syrup. A balanced wine list highlights Northwest labels at a range of prices. Servers are well-trained and pleasant. Beware the noise level; it can rise rapidly. The large outdoor patio is popular on balmy summer days.
