The Vinings Fish Company is an above average dining experience. As a foodie, I can appreciate their excellent food, prompt service and comfortable atmosphere.
Upon our Friday evening arrival, we were courteously greeted and promptly seated. Although I had made reservation for 7 PM, the evening crowd had not yet arrived; however, it eventually did. I wish I had made reservations for their couple’s veranda, outside. Very romantic and overlooking the Vinings Jubilee shopping area, weather was perfect for outside dining. Nevertheless, our interior booth was just fine. Small accessories exemplified the nautical theme for the restaurant, including digital monitors replicating an aquarium.
The menu offers hot appetizers as well as chilled seafood to start your meal. We agreed upon the Baked Oysters Rockefellar, six oysters, baked with spinach, parmesan and hollandaise sauce. Served with an Arugula salad with a light vinaigrette, the oysters were cooked perfectly and were delicious.
As a main course, we ordered the Pan Seared Jumbo Sea Scallops, served with a butternut squash risotto, Arugula and a white truffle olive oil. We also requested the Surf and Turf, with a choice of broiled or fried lobster tail, we asked for the broiled option; accompanied by a 5 oz., perfectly cooked Filet Mignon, creamy whipped potatoes, asparagus and a red wine jus sauce. The steak was a high quality beef and the red wine sauce was so delectable, we were craving more. The potatoes were creamy and delicious, along with the crisp and buttery asparagus. The sea scallops were cooked absolutely perfect, with a slight browning but still delicate enough to melt in your mouth. The squash risotto had a hint of cinnamon and was good, although it could’ve been cooked just a minute longer. Portions were ideal and reasonably price for the quality.
I would highly recommend this dining treasure located in the heart of Vinings. Many other seafood options are available on the menu including trout, salmon, Mahi Mahi, crab and most can be ordered A la Carte.
