Went for dinner with the girlfriend here, just after Boxing Day.
The appies were excellent - a chowder for her (nice pieces of bacon in the chowder - yummm), and the Seared Ginger Ahi Tuna for me - nicely done, and great flavour.
For the mains, she had the special - A One pan Salmon - which was really nice, and the Deep Water Prawns and Lemon Chilli Linguini for me, which needed a little more bite on the chilli for me - but still ok.
The service was very good, attentive, but not overbearing.
I like the setting, and this would be a great spot in the spring or summer.
Over all, a nice place.

A Kettle of Fish is a nice place for an evening out, or at least to start it off.
The restaurant has a very attentive staff that knows how to serve their clients. They are attentive without being to disruptive.
The restaurant is quite spacious and has an outdoors feel to it.
During my recent dining experience there, I had the Kettle Fish Soup, and the Arctic Char.
My better half went for the New England Clam Chowder and the Queen Charlotte Sablefish.
We ended up trying one another's dishes. Everything was excellent - taste and plating was very appealing.
The restaurant is a bit on the pricey side, but the meal was good and the atmosphere was pleasant. A nice place to head out on a date.

I went with my gal to Sushi Ten a few weeks ago.
Not the best experience.
Two people working this small location - the chef and a waitress.
I ordered a miso soup, sunomono salad, and the salmon and tuna sashimi and a roll(banzai I think it was called). My better half ordered the miso soup, sunomono salad and the assorted sushi.
The sunomono salads came out of the refrigerator right behind us. No presentation value, and the noodles were quite chewy.
The miso soup came out - which was good, but nothing special.
The assorted sushi came out and so did my roll. The roll was tasty and the rice was well done.
The assorted sushi looked good, but fish pieces looked small.
I needed to wait for 5 to 10 minutes before my sashimi came out, and I was disappointed, The tuna was partially frozen still, and I found a bone still in one piece. The salmon was good, but knife work on the fish was poor and the fish was falling apart.
I gave a "two" for food rating as at least my gal's meal was ok.
We may have just hit this place at a bad time (end of the day on a Saturday) after a bright and sunny (busy) day.
The place is fairly small and seems more geared to take out.
Looks like there was a lot of take out business going on, so I hope that they had a better meal than my meal.
Even had the meal been good, I don't see the value for the food - small portions and unappealing presentation.
I won't go back.
If you do try this place, I wish you more luck than I had.
