The Wet Fish serves simple food cooked well - a short, seasonal menu of modern fish dishes as well as meat and veggie options. Cocktails and coffee are also signatures. The Early Bird menus are terrific value. Return your table by 8pm for an irresistible deal on the prix fixe menu. And Early Bird offers are available all evening every Monday.

I did like the place, the atmosphere and the food.Good service (very nice) I ordered the "hungover cure" (scramble eggs w/ chorizo, potatoes, black beans, salad + bloody Mary + coffe.
