    My companions raved about their food; however, my meal ($33 for 4 diver scallops) was bland in appearance -white scallops, white potatoes- and bland tasting. While this restaurant boasts about its water views, we were seated at a table that looked through a window into another dining room. The only water view was a partial one over my shoulder.

    This dining experience was a disappointment. It was pricey, and the food - at least mine - was bland. Salad was limp, scallops were over-cooked. My husband liked his meal, however. The service was excellent - we were greeted immediately & the waitress was great.

    Disappointed
    Dined on 11/7/2014
    I went to this restaurant 5-6 years ago and had a phenomenal experience. My husband and I went the other night and we're terribly disappointed. Albeit a beautiful view and romantic setting, the food was abysmal. We ordered the snapper, shrimp and grits appetizer and the stone crabs. The food was very bland and the presentation was lacking, especially considering the price. The stone crabs were fine but we're not cracked as they do at Joe's and the "special" sauce was a sub par honey mustard dressing. Needless to say we will not be back! Joes it is!!

    First visit for upstairs dining in over a decade. So much has happened on the Ft Lauderdale dining scene in the interim, but much about the 15th St Fisheries has remained the same: extensive menu w emphasis on fresh seafood, a decent wine list. Of course, the view. Other things are the same that I wish weren't: the decor, carpeting, lighting are in sore need of updating. Only one section has windows that swing open for "al fresco"- like fine dining. The rest of the second floor is overly air-conditioned with sealed- tight windows. Brrrr. Finally: one other thing remains the same: the service here is impeccable: knowledgeable, attentive and welcoming. At this neighborhood gem, the staff is its greatest asset.

    After researching many seafood restaurants in Fort Lauderdale it seems we hit the jackpot with our choice. From the moment we entered the ambience and cordiality was great, conversation was easy, the view lovely, service was spot on, the food was great, and they even overheard this was a birthday and spontaneously brought out a small sundae with a candle. It was a very special night.

    Had the opportunity to go for our wedding anniversary. Entered an inviting dining area(above another restaurant) and was immediately attended to by the fine wait staff. Tried the citrus black mussels and tuna tartare appetizers, which were delicious. Shared a watercress salad, which was very fresh and loaded with goat cheese. The showstopper was the Florida Chioppino. Pasta and seafood in a delicious broth. All the flavors melded together perfectly. DELICIOUS

    We went to 15th street fisheries for our wedding anniversary. We booked our reservation through open table; very simple process. On the day of our event, the restaurant called us to confirm our reservation. We arrived early and had a cocktail at the bar. The atmosphere was very pleasant. Our table was ready at the time we had made our reservation for. We were greeted by the staff upstairs who made us feel very welcome. Our servers were excellent! All the dishes we selected were very tasty and the view from our table was spectacular. We were very pleased with our experience at 15th street fisheries. They made our evening very special.

    My family and I have been trying to make it 15th St fisheries for years, and I am glad that we finally made it. We went during the dine out Ft. Lauderdale promotion. The service was fantastic, and the view was even better. The restaurant is on the upper level, and is very quiet. There is a vibrant bar on the lower floor, which seemed to be a hot spot. I uworld definitely suggest feeding the tarpons after dinner for a fun treat. The food was great, and service was great, I would suggest the restaurant to everyone.

    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.
