    I recently had a great steamed fish dish at Mandarin Court on Mott Street. The dim sum has been off here but the dinner has always been excellent.

      Oriental Garden has a very nice selection of fresh fish and they will prepare it pretty much any way you want it...if you communicate it correctly to your waiter...They do a raw Geoduck as well as a very very lightly stir-fried version that are both amazing...

      Fuleen is famous for its fresh fish dishes.

        I would second the recommendation of Fuleen Seafood and add the Oriental Garden as another possibility.
