    This restaurant is excellent for the people ths loves seafood in a romantic bay scenery. The only con is too expensive for the type of food snd the small variety on theit menu. They should have more option. For example combination, and sampler platters. On the wines list. They need to add some Chilean wines options. Chilean wines are consider one of the top 5 best wines in the world.

    We returned to 15th Street Fisheries for the first time in a number of years (no reason for not having returned, other than there are just a lot of also good restaurants in the area) and found the food, service and atmosphere just as it had been in the past. We asked ourselves why we hadn't returned sooner and vowed not to let that happen again

    We wanted fresh seafood and remembering how I used to enjoy the 15th Street Fishery I thought it would be a great place to go for good food and a nice view. We sat upstairs which looked very outdated and dingy, very surprising for the prices they charge. We ordered a pitcher of Mojitos, what we got looked like a pitcher of dark rum and water with a few limes and mint laying in the bottom! It did not resemble or taste like a Mojito! It was awful and we returned it. We enjoyed our food for the most part, the salad which came with papaya dressing was pale and lacked flavor. The Grouper was delicious as well as the Mahi and Ahi Tuna. I think it's time to update the decor and add more variety to the menu, there is no wow factor there anymore!

    We got a lousy view window seat - I asked for a good view I noticed they sat others right next to us with even worse views - yet the great tables with better views remained empty most of the night. Why would they do this??? The place was barely 1/3 full. The food was tasty but expensive. We both had a seafood Cippino but there was not much fish in it - mostly pasta. 3 little motley mussels that were not too fresh. For $36 each - we expected more seafood. Service was friendly and excellent. I like the place and location and may go back but be more discerning next time.

  • Stay Downstairs
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/11/2014
    I have dined here once downstairs in the pub area and this time upstairs in what was the upscale area. I was entertaining clients and had hoped for a "wow" experience. The last time there we ate outside, had casual food and it was great. Upstairs was deserted...and we found out why. The service was very slow. They brought out the order wrong. My highly recommended shrimp and grits tasted horribly fishy and mushy...sent back and had lost appetite. I would say this is not good since it is kind or pricey...but it wasn't even good if it wasn't pricey. I guess stay downstairs but I'm assuming they use the same kitchen which makes me now even question that choice. I thought I had found a hidden gem tucked away on the water.

    I have not been to 15th ST Fisheries for several years. It has improved dramatically. I was with a party of 6. Everyone liked their food and several of them are "foodies". They indicated the fish was prepared properly, not overly done. Sitting upstairs is pleasant. They have downstairs seating outside and the menu downstairs is much more casual.

    We enjoyed the 3-course dinner special immensely. From the outstanding bread basket and throughout the entire meal, we couldn't have been more pleased. The fish tasted extremely fresh and was well prepared. Our server was attentive to refilling our water and was very helpful with our selections. A window seat gives you a nice water view. I don't think you'd be disappointed with any of your choices. We weren't.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    We dined there on a Saturday night (upstairs, accessible via elevator) on the "porch. We had a pleasant experience watching the intracoastal traffic. The menu had a lovely array of seafood with a chicken and beef entrée or two. My wife enjoyed the seared Diver Scallops in Provencal sauce with truffle & scallion mashed potatoes & grilled asparagus. I had an extraordinary Miso Glazed Roasted Chilean Sea Bass with mango fried rice and Thai stir fried vegetables. Every aspect of my our entrées was a delight and without a doubt my entrée was the best Sea Bass I have ever had. The sides were truly exceptional. Note that the porch can be a bit noisy during the hot months when the windows are closed. The other seating areas seemed much quieter.

    We went to enjoy the food and the view upstairs. It was mainly empty but we were seated to a very loud and talkative customer at the next table. There isn't anything the restaurant could do about it I suppose. Also, the salad I ordered was all spinach and barely any other ingredients that were in the description. When asked if I liked it I said it was Ok. They asked if I wanted anything different and I said no. That was nice of them, but they also took it off of the check. That as great too. Of course we tipped on the entire bill because Lucy was so good. Next time I will request a little more private table if it's available.

    My husband and I were visiting the Ft. Lauderdale area and a local suggested we try this place. It was fantastic. We shared the crab cake appetizer, which is one of the best crab cakes I've ever had, filled with lumps of delicious crab. I had the swordfish with coconut curry and my husband had the shrimp pasta. Both were fresh and flavorful. I would highly recommend this restaurant to visitors and locals alike.

The food offerings bring out the best of seasonal Florida seafood with great preparations and some modern twists. The service teams ensure that attention doesn't lapse, even when the primary server is not available. The desserts are absolutely something not to miss.

    The 15th Street Fisheries is composed of a casual downstairs/outside restaurant and a fine dinning upstairs restaurant. The ratings are for the fine dinning component. I'm certain that both part merit excellent rating. The restaurant is on the inter-coastal waterway and has excellent views of the water traffic. Would certainly return to this restaurant.

    We dined upstairs, not dockside. The food was good and creative. Gourmet ….. no not really, but tasty. I had the diver scallops and they were delicious. For an appetizer I had their shrimp & grits and it too was very tasty, but I would have preferred it to come without heads & tails attached. Service was attentive and timely. Cannot comment on the mixed drinks, we had wine with the meal. Would I go back, yes, but not right away and not without a special occasion to celebrate… this was a birthday dinner.

    It's relaxing as soon as you put your feet inside the restaurant - have a drink at the bar overlooking the Marina; then go outside or upstairs inside, depending on weather to experience the best seafood in FLL. We tried delicious lumpy Crab Cakes, superb Spiny Lobster Tail & an undescriptible pound of King of the Kings Crab Legs - with drawn butter! Unique like a finger print.
