    All I will say is, don't ever order the yellow rice with shrimp or whatever they call it. That was the most disgusting food I have ever tasted. The presentation of the food, not even close to good. Will I go there to eat again, not so much!

    I recently moved to the area and was told about Fifi's. I have eaten there twice and loved it each time. The last time we took advantage of the Miami Spice menu. We have always been suspect of the Miami Spice specials but this was a great deal. Fantastic shrimp appetizer , Hog snapper and dessert. Great deal.

    Come for lunch - ASK for specials (they don't just tell you, or give you a copy of the specials menu) It was not a bad place for lunch but overprised for dinner based on execution/presentation. They do have iced down seafood along right side when you walk in - so check what has come in fresh today!

    I took my boyfriend for his birthday. He appreciated the gesture, but it didnt sit high on his palatte. Being islanders, we are VERY particular about the preparation of seafood. The menu items were ok and I could return if someone really wanted to go, however the snapper was small and bland.

    The majority of the wait staff are terrible. The waiter barely greeted our party and eye contact is apparenlty optional. When we asked about a particular drink her response was unenthusiastic and she seemed very unfamiliar with the menu. She did not check on us and when she did, it was almost like she was doing us a favor. Completely unattentive and no effort was placed into the service. Gratuity is included in the price so there is no incentive to try.

    Group of six of us and we put ourselves in the hands of our server since we haven't had a lot of Cuban food. Best thing we could have done! Food was terrific, service was friendly, our server knew her stuff, and the prices were reasonable. You wouldn't think much from the outside, but don't judge a book by the cover! We all had a great time and enjoyed the varieties of food we had. Well done!

    First time there. Very good. Attentive staff. The Paradilla for 2 was delicious and more than enough for us. A large group came in but our waiter warned us before we chose our table. We actually had to tell waiters a few times not to clear our table. We spent almost 3 hours there. Our waiter gave us a complimentary Flan. Delicious. I will definately return to ths restaurant when I'm in the mood for seafood. Maybe for lunch next time.

    Fifi's is a great great seafood restaurant. A hidden gem! The food is consistently good! There are so many choices for someone looking to be on a low carb diet. The tuna coconut roll is like nothing I have ever had before. Also the best and freshest tuna tartare! The appetizers are on the pricey side, but you get a good sized portion. For main course, everything is great. It's hard to choose each time we go. The hog snapper, the fish soup, sea bass and even the kobe sliders are awesome!! You can't go wrong with Fifi's!

    The paella and sea bass were fabulous! In both cases the fish and shellfish were moist and perfectly cooked. We also had the grilled calamari for an appetizer which was also flavorful and not too chewy. I would definitely go back!

    Super fresh, delicious fish dishes. Service friendly and professional. No attitude, which is a nice change from South Beach. It's also a true fish restaurant in the European sense, i.e. lots of variety in the fishes served + fruits de mer. Outstanding, and we will return.

    A friend of ours that lives in Bay Village invited us to try this restaurant. I can not say enough about this restaurant! Food quality was high, presentation wonderful. My husband and friend split the Paella which was delicious and plentiful with plenty to take home. My Delmonico steak was tasty and tender. However, it was served red inside, not pink as ordered. I sent back and they were happy to accommodate. Our server was patient and attentive; my husband can be demanding and she handled him professionally and courteously.

    Go to Fifi's for the seafood. From oysters to tuna tartare to the special of the day, hog snapper, the seafood was fresh and well-prepared. We did not try any of the non-fish items, but why go to a seafood restaurant for a steak? The complimentary salad that precedes the 1st course was a nice surprise. Forget the sides -- house made potato chips arrived cold and limp, bread was uninspiring, desserts were less than great. On a busy night be prepared to pour your own wine, for inconsistent course pacing, and for so many servers that you aren't quite sure who is responsible for your table. Fifi's does seafood beautifully; well worth every visit

    Being a port town on the sea, you would think we woud be crawling with great fish restaurants. Sadly, we are not. Those that do, serve the same grouper & dolphin over & over. Not Fiifi's. The freshly caught hog snapper is a highlight with an exquisite plating but the branzino special (though on the expensive side) was equally good. Loved also the variety of olive oils, the fresh bread and the wine list. Great friendly service round out the gem of a neighborhood restaurant!

    Went on spring break with the kids. Not knowing the area and being that it was a Saturday night decided to go on Open Table it was a no brainer. Every one was super nice and the place got busier as the night went on. The best thing is that it is North of South beach so its quitter but still active. My wife had a salad (which was huge) and the famous ceviche which she could not say enough good things about. I went with Fifi’s Seafood Paella which they say is for 2 but can be a single portion, excellent! What looked interesting was the fresh catch Hog Snapper. (Check out there web site for the photos) Any way highly recommend. p.s. we went back the next week with friends.

    First their is no alcohol available, just wine ( a very short list) and beer so we just had water We had a seafood "mariscada" platter. which was very good, It was supposed to be for 2 people but it is really for one. We also had a salad and again the portion was very very very small. The fish in the mariscada was tilapia which was not very impressive but it tasted good. They gave us a Flan courtesy of the house, why? we don't know but it was very good. it took forever to get the check. However they tried to remove my wife's plate while she was eating. The tip (18%) was included and they have a space in the receipt for TIP so if you don't see that they already took it you will give it twice,

    This Miami Beach restaurant was recommended by the concierge at the hotel. It has the freshest seafood--the special was a hog snapper grilled on the bone which we shared, tender, delicate and delicious. Tasty salad and appetizers. We had to come back a second time for the stone crab and pradella. You really should visit Fifis. The service was excellent and the servers are accommodating. Delicious!

    visiting Miami, but my friend who lives here said we must try Fifi's. We weren't disappointed. The seafood is incredible. We split the giant platter, which was plentiful and utterly delish, as was the Ceviche appetizer. We also enjoyed a carafe of white sangria - my only complaint would be that it appears canned fruit cocktail was used as the fruit in sangria. Bit of a thumbs down - at $30 per carafe, I think REAL fruit is in order. But I'd go back here again and again

    I rated the food as poor due to the fact we never received our food after almost 2 hours. However, the waiter did his best job in apologizing. He did give us 2 complimentary appetizers, but we were very disappointed in never receiving our food. The restaurant was not crowded when we ordered our food, but one hour later it became very busy. The waiter said a large party came in and the kitchen was under staffed - however several tables that were seated after us received their food and left before we were told what was going on. We left after 2 hours giving up hope of ever receiving our food. The food at the other tables looked great. I was really looking forward to trying Fifi's - not sure if I'll return.
