    We enjoyed our food at FiFi's. The waiter knew his menu inside and out, and helped us choose our dishes accordingly. We were quiet surprised with how amazing the meals were, to the point where we couldn't wait to dig into our leftovers the next day. Atmosphere is anywhere from quiet to loud, depending on who's sitting nearby. The interior décor is nice, but kind of whacky. We counted at least five examples of mismatched stonework around the place. Overall, a great little spot that was an easy walk from our hotel in North Miami Beach.

    Came to Fifi's twice over the Xmas holidays a few years ago and had a really special dining experience both times with my family - experiences I have been telling people about for years - about the amazing and unique Hog Snapper and the delectable calamari - so tender it tasted like rings of pasta. Went back the other night again when back in Miami and was extremely disappointed. Calamari was overcooked and Hog Snapper tasted like any other fish. Very sad.

    Food is always good but service is usually poor. I've waited about 5 minutes before a server came to my table every time I've been there. Also they have trouble coordinating the timing if the courses- the entree almost always arrives within minutes I the salad and sometimes the appetiEr and salad come out minutes apart.

    Nice neighborhood place. We went for the Miami Spice menu. The appetizers , tuna taco and scallops in truffle sauce were delicious. The seafood entree and seabass cooked to perfection. Service was extremly attentive and friendly.

    One of the best meals we have ever had!! Food was very fresh! The Chilean sea bass was delicious, out of this world! The shrimp tempura appetizer and the scallop appetizer were the best! The grilled seafood platter was excellent! The service was attentive and caring! They even brought us complimentary champagne to toast, when they read that it was our anniversary! Haven't seen such attention to detail at any restaurant recently. We met Fifi, the owner, who was so sweet! For a fabulous meal, for delicious food, for a 5 star experience, we definitely recommend Fifi's! ...and if you go during the summer, they offer a prix fixe menu through Miami Spice.

    We caught the catch of the day, for Miami Spice and was very impressed. As a local, we couldn't believe the buzz at the restaurant. The service was excellent. The entire staff seem to be working together on each table. And it is worth noting that the busboys are HOT!

    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!

    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.
