Seafood
Oddfish is a Seafood and Vegetable focused restaurant. Ethically sourced and high quality ingredients are what you will find here with the focus being on the food - not the fuss. In regard to the wine list - approachable and interesting with a great price point is our goal. The atmosphere is casual and fun. We are a neighbourhood restaurant that others from outside the neighbourhood come to for that welcoming atmosphere. We are the same people who created Nook and Tavola restaurants.

We felt a tad rushed, which is never nice when out for dinner, we spent less then an hour at the table and had ordered multiple dishes and drinks; but the food was good and the staff were pleasant and humorous.

Odd Fish is doing an excellent service under the circumstances. I gave the food a 4 instead of a 5 only because we perhaps didn’t select the best combination of fish and veggie. That’s on us!

Unfortunately, there really isn't a superlative that adequately describes the food. Outstanding just doesn't do it. After your initial visit you won't ever forget to order the fries but do save room for the branzino (my new favourite). If possible, this place just keeps getting better!

Greeting was friendly. The table was ready, set and nicely situated.
The waiter was friendly, made suggestions, answered questions: the service good.
The green salad was fresh and well-presented. The mussels, linguine with crab and uni butter were delicious.
I didn’t feel rushed. I would recommend and return.

Oddfish is an "Ok" restaurant. The dishes came out too slowly for us to feel we had a cohesive meal. We actually thought the last dish (broccoli) had been forgotten so we ended up just taking it home.
The potato crusted halibut was undercooked (the centre of the fish was actually cold). Maybe it was cooked from frozen(?)
Prawn cocktail was fine
Brussels sprouts were good
Beet salad was good

The food was delicious and nicely prepared. The noise level in the restaurant, however, was disturbingly high. In this time when we have to ear masks why do you insist on playing music that no one listens to anyway? The conversation of customers at the bar overshadowed any possible conversation, and at times it was hard to understand the waiter.

The food is great and the service was excellent. My only issue was the super small size of what was defined in the menu as the large/mains. They were were the same size as the first courses and served without a side- which made them very expensive. Arch restaurant should of course price it’s menu as it sees fit. But serving mains the size of firsts and pricing them as mains left us with a sour taste.

Exceptional food and excellent cocktails. Our server, Richard, was fun. The halibut was seriously the very best I’ve ever had and I do a good job of cooking it myself and order it frequently. Had salmon crudo—terrific—and the grilled broccoli was remarkable. My husband had the triple fried potatoes which were also perfectly done.

A few notes: the plates are very small. Even the “main course” halibut was a light one-person dish, not a main course on its own. And the “covered outdoor” area was not, in my opinion, a real outdoor space, more like a temporary room with see-through walls. We chose to sit at one of the only truly outside tables which didn’t have a heater but we still loved our whole meal and look forward to going again. And again.

Food tasted good but portion sizes were mostly quite small for the price, especially the crudo tasting ($45 for 18 very thinly sliced pieces of fish). Do yourself a favour and skip right to the mains which were a much better ratio of price to fish.
