Diner Reviews
  • "We had a delightful meal at La Fisheria with a couple of friends. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and personable and very knowledgeable. The patio was just perfect on one of Houston's beautiful spring nights. This was my first visit and I will certainly return. The huachinango was delicious."

  • "Lovely hidden gem in Houston. Front patio reminds you of being on vacation in some beach town. Back patio is great for dinning under the stars in a cozy ambience with Palm trees and soft lighting... You would never believe you are only a couple of minutes away from the busy 1-10...Food is excellent. Drinks are very cool, unique and refreshing. Definitely worth adding to your Houston's places to checkout list."

  • "La Fisheria had great food, wines and service. Unfortunately this was all spoiled by the noise level. If you are in a large group, you might not mind it, but we were just two and we could not hear each other. It is too bad that it was so loud. I would recommend for the food quality, but I will have to think twice about going back because of the loud noise level."

  • "Unique dish using common ingredients. Octopus nachos were great; the Red Snapper Ceviche is a MUST. Disappointed they didn't have a whole snapper dish on the menu, only Tilapia (bland) severed whole, did have a nice sauce. Snapper and enchilada dish was very good. The fried yucca root side dish is offered will all entrees, but I recommend you ask for it. Bread only, no chips. Potent margaritas. Small venue, but nicely done. Parking is not customer friendly; valet parking is required, no self-park offered; only self-park is on the street. Friendly staff and manager. Prices are a bit on the high-side relative to other Mexican Seafood restaurants, but venue is more upscale."

  • "Try the trio de ceviche -- fresh, fresh, fresh! Also, Pescado & enchiladas rojas (redfish) and the fresh fish pibil (snapper - thick!) were delicious -- fresh, not overwhelms w/ sauce or seasoning. Assistant Manager Ana was our server and knows the menu inside and out. Professional and informative service all the way around. Lovely, cheerful décor as well! Definitely will be back."

  • "A true treasure in the Heights. Lovely touch Of Cabo in Houston! The black bean soup is sublime, and the fish entrees are fresh & zippy. A must go for any foodie & bring friends from out of town. They will be dazzled."

  • "Truly a delightful experience. Breaded oysters were very well complimented by the sauce, which enhance, not overwhelmed, their freshness. The presentation on shells was appealing and inviting; not crowded. The crab croquets served with breaded asparagus and shallots, were delicately flavored allowing the natural taste to come through. I had the Flounder with a tasteful seasoning, reminiscent of a seaside Caribbean meal. The fish texture was perfectly cooked, and served with fresh vegetables. The dessert went harmoniously with a cup of Expresso and Cognac. Our compliments..."

  • "The food is very good and the service was attentive. The interior decor is more beachy chic. We both thought they'd get more business if they dressed the place up as the food was very good."

  • "Glad we tried it. Lot of buzz from our friends. Tried it at lunch. Very quite. Too expensive for lunch on you own. Need a lunch menu"

  • "Pleasant decor. Very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly wait staff. We ordered the tuna tostada, trio de cerviches, and crab meat croquettes to share. The tuna was the best of the bunch. The trio was fresh and varied. One tasted like a bloody mary. The crab meat balls were good because anything fried is good but a little heavy with mayo. My hubby then had the black bean soup and enjoyed it. I had the mixed salad with grilled shrimp - loved the light dressing and perfectly grilled shrimp. The excellent cocktails are served in canning jars."

  • "When I drove up to La fisheria the valet person was incredibly rude. The parking situation in general at night in this area is horrible. La Fisheria had a tiny parking lot with rude valet. Many parking lots in the area mostly with towing signs. So parking is a nightmare and the valet made it worse. These are the reasons we will never return to la fisheria. If some how you can get past the parkig situation, the food is good and the service was very nice. It's a little expensive and the atmosphere is not for a date. Many families and the decor inside was cheap looking and the tables were uncomfortable. The only way I see enjoying La fisheria is for take out which would solve the parking situation or for lunch which may be cheaper."

  • "Disappointed by the reality vs what I expected from other reviews and sources. Decor and ambience where poor and reminds me of a gas station side cafe vs a more trendy food spot. Menus were faded "dot matrix" style printed plain white sheets on a wooden clip board. No wine list and slow server service. Tuna tornados were a let down as they were shaved tuna on tostitos chips with a little salt/peper and a splash of vinaigrette. Ordered the Lobster risotto which is supposed to be their best dish. Unfortunately, the risotto was runny, slightly undercooked, and fairly bland. After two poor courses we opted to skip desert. Will not be returning."

  • "David Cervantes is an excellent manager. Food is good but i have to say that it is a little bit overpriced. $ 26 for a ceviche it is too much."

  • "When I arrived at La Fisheria they had no record of my reservation thru Open Table and did not seem to even know what Open Table was. That may have been just the maitre d (lady seating folks) but they had no clue. They did find a table for me (fortunately for me, it was fairly empty) and the experience turned out to be excellent but I couldn't help thinking that the evening with my friends would have been ruined if they hadn't not been so empty given the fact they refused to honor my Open Table reservation."

  • "Good quality fresh fish served in interior of Mexico style. Ceviche was also tasty with fish, but no discernable shrimp as the menu indicated. The entrees included finely chopped zuchini and a few cauliflower, but minimal vegetables. Fish entrees were about $30, which seemed a little pricey."
