Excellent fish, bread, sauces and even dessert! This is a gem in the heart of Georgetown. They offer 3 sauces for the grilled fish...all different and delicious. Nice wine selection and attentive service.

To me, the service is what made this such a nice dinner. Nice atmosphere, reasonably priced drinks, and overall good food. I would not say outstanding food, but good food. The fish selections are plentiful and well prepared.

While attending a conference in Georgetown, a colleague and I had dinner at Grillfish. The waitstaff we're wonderful and quick considering the crowd. I strongly recommend making a reservation. I had a mixed grill that was exceptional.

We source the finest, sustainable & local ingredients to create handcrafted food & beverages. Our setting is unmatched and the best casual, neighborhood dining in the West End. The bar is ornately decorated with massive mirrors, large columns and a multitude of glowing candles. These, along with the open kitchen where flames leap from the grill, create a warmth and intimacy in a casual atmosphere.
