Diner Reviews
  • "A change of pace to the usual fare of restaurants. My friend and I tried the trio ceveche and waited to order the entree. Glad we did because the trio was filling and delicious. Service was very good . Only negative, it a very noisy place."

  • "Great food, fantastic drinks but staff was not as attentive as expected. I know it was HRW but our waiter was distracted at best. The hostesses sat us at one table then came back 5 min later and moved us without explanation. After we ordered from the HRW menu, our waiter basically just dropped each serving without comments ."

  • "We have been wanting to try La Fisheria for some time now, and decided to take advantage of Houston Restaurant Weeks and give it a shot. It was definitely a great dinner and we look forward to going back and trying some different items on the menu. Our group ordered every option on the HRW menu and it was all fantastic. The only downfall, if you can call it that, is a rather short wine list. We tried the only Pinot Grigio on the list and it was good, but would have liked to see a few more options. All in all, it was a great experience and we will most assuredly return!!"

  • "Came here for HRW because reviews were good and the menu sounded interesting. As much as I'd like to give this place another chance, the food just failed miserably. There are too many restaurants in Houston for me to go to place like this again. Food: three course meal from HRW (I took all the waiter's recommendations)...The appetizer sopa was lacking seasoning/acidity/anything. Main course taco trio -- pastor taco was incredibly fishy (ate about half), lobster taco was 95% sour cream/pickled red onion (left this on the plate), fried shrimp was smothered in some sort of creamy sauce and was the best of the bunch (which isn't saying much). Dos leches was oversoaked in condensed milk and no red sorbet to be found (as advertised). No thanks."

  • "Great food as always at La Fisheria. My only comment is that I do not understand the mandatory valet parking in the small parking lot next to the restaurant. Why do we need it there? I agree that valet parking makes sense once the lot is full, and is much appreciated, but it is uncomfortable when the lot is empty. La Fisheria should re-think about this...."

  • "The food was good although a bit expensive. We tries the Houston restaurant week special. The fish was very good and left me satisfied. They don't do chips and salsa which may be why I wasn't over stuffed! The MX martini was made with mescal which I liked. It wasn't as good as the Oaxacan Rita at Hugo's but very close. The cappuccino was terrible, but they removed the charge. They use nesspresso pods instead of a real machine. If they upped their game worth real coffee I would add a star. Over all it was a great date even if we had to go elsewhere for a coffee. We'll probably be back."

  • "Invited a friend of mine, who loves both Mexican food and seafood, for Houston Restaurant Week lunch. Along with my "agua fresca de jamaica" (hibiscus flower drink), I chose the trio of tacos and wished that I hadn't saved the lobster taco for last! So good, but I was full. Had to take my Dos Leches dessert back to the office. Tasted like one of the two "milks" was almond milk - genious! Two is enough! Wish the price point was a little better to be able to come here for lunch more often! ¡Enhorabuena, Aquiles y equipo!"

  • "I finally took the opportunity to try this restaurant during Houston Restaurant Weeks. I've had my eye on this place for a while. It did not disappoint. I went with a group of five people on a Tuesday. We had a reservation and were promptly seated and our drink orders taken. The service throughout was excellent. We ordered three of the restaurant week menu which got us everything and we also added a couple appetizers and a soup. The grilled octopus was tender and delicious and all the fish was cooked to perfection. Everything was very enjoyable and the combination of food and service was excellent in a nice, relaxed atmosphere. I definitely will be returning!"

  • "This was a refreshing break from the same old... Really interesting riffs on the food of interior Mexico. Absolutely delicious, beautifully presented. Restaurant week was a good time to try it as their regular prices would have stopped our discovery! The fishing shack style gives an unsophisticated vibe, laid back and cool. But the food is spot on, with an excellent hand at the helm. Waiter Antonio was a gem!"

  • "The wait staff needs to become familiar with the menu. Most of the items are in spanish and our waitress did not speak spanish we had to be pointing at the menu. It's ok she does not speak spanish but learning the menu is a must."

  • "Our group of 6 tried our La Fisheria for HRW. We were thrilled to find this place. We enjoyed the food. It is aggressively seasoned with salt and pepper -Thank you for that. The service was excellent. I loved having the table a reasonable space apart. We were able to have conversation at our table without hearing the other tables around us."

  • "First time there and I enjoyed it. Only thing weird was that I could not find any reservations between 6:45 and 9:15. I went at 6:45 and left around 7:45 and there was plenty of empty tables. Did the Houston restaurant week and got real good food for a good price."

  • "I enjoyed my visit and would most likely return. I felt the food was inventive, the service was attentive, and the drinks were very delicious and fresh. The restaurant is LOUD so be ready for that. It's a very small space, so probably not good for groups for families."

  • "Upon arrival the hostess informed us that they were not accepting open table reservations. She did not offer any apologies for this and we had to ask her if it be ok if we could sit at the bar (she didn't even offer). Our meal took 2 hours from order to finish. Service was very slow and we had to ask if our meals were ready before anyone checked for us. Overall, the food was good but the service was the worst service we have ever experienced in Houston."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We love the fish here - fresh and perfectly cooked with plenty of flavor. The margaritas (particularly the cucumber and jalapeno, and the hibiscus) are also delicious. Start with a ceviche and finish off with the Dos Leches (yes - only two milks instead of three, but this is a case where fewer is actually better!) and you have an excellent meal for a reasonable price, particularly now that the Houston Restaurantweeks menu is available. Highly recommended!"

  • "Excellent food. Consider La Fisheria as a really good Seafood place more than a Mexican restaurant. Great for those who don't like the usual Tex-Mex but want an upmarket Mexican experience."

  • "Houston Restaurant Weeks is a great way to try out new restaurants. You get a 3 course sampling of a variety of dishes. I ordered the cerviche and it was wonderful. The drinks were good and strong. Like most good restaurants in Houston be prepared for noise. It's really noisy. Otherwise it was a great dinner."

  • "La Fisheria knows fish and seafood well. The ceviche that I had was perfect, fresh and a kick of spice. The catch of the day, a red snapper, was great as well. The service however was a little slow and not really much to brag about. But don't let that deter you, the food is worth a visit!"

  • "We dined here last night - Thursday @7:30pm. The restaurant was about 60% filled so noise level was low for a Houston restaurant. The seafood was delicious - very fresh and perfectly prepared. My mojito was excellent. There was a disconnect on our order and we never received our appetizer but no blame - just a communication snafu. We had plenty of food so were actually glad it didn't come. Our waiter, however, brought us a complimentary desert anyway - although we told him it wasn't necessary. He did a great job explaining the menu and was very polite and pleasant. I liked the bright, colorful décor. TIP: There is a small outdoor seating area in the back that is nicely landscaped with palm and banana trees - nice!"
