They are under new ownership, which sometimes can be a good thing, but in this case, it means smaller portions, lower quality dishes and management who try to pass off a tough-as-nails flatiron steak as filet mignon. They need to change or update their menu. If they are going to continue to offer a dish it should be true to its listed ingredients. I now go to the restaurant of the former owner which is in Marietta at the corner of Roswell Rd and Piedmont.

We have been going to The Fish Bowl restaurant for years. Their prices have gone up over the years so we were delighted to find a coupon for The Fish Bowl restaurant on Restaurants.com. Except when we were ready to use the coupon the owner would not honor it. Our friends had been to The Fish Bowl two weeks prior and the restaurant ran a promotion that brought people in the door for $1.00 beers on Monday nights. The sign for $1.00 Monday beers was still up next to their special board so we felt confident the promotion was still running. We presented our coupon and the waitress said that we could not use the coupon with the beer special. We understood that and it made sense but then the owner said she would not honor either special. She had words with us and another couple who also had come back for the beer special. Times are tough and you can bet we would have eaten at home if we didn't have the coupon, and for them not to honor it was a slap in the face. Our total bill was $100 and for $25.00 they lost four regular customers. I would guess the other couple who was yelled at by the owner may not be back to this restaurant either. The food is good but don't post promotions and offer coupons if you have no intention of honoring them.

We go in for sushi at least once a month. Although not the cheapest sushi, it is of the highest quality. The staff is very sweet and attentive. Their Vanilla Shrimp is to die for, and so are their martinis!!
