A word from Red Fish Grill
Remember when Matt Dillon was eavesdropping on Cameron Diaz in the movie "There's Something About Mary"? They were at Red Fish Grill. And what a location! Whether dining outside under the Palms at the edge of Biscayne Bay or in the historic coral stone dining room, this restaurant is like nowhere else. It's a slice of Florida that disappeared long ago in most parts of Miami. But it's a lot more than atmosphere that brings in the locals and notables. The menu is dedicated to fresh local seafood, cooked with a gourmet twist, sometimes Caribbean... sometimes Asian. Best bets: Fennel Seared Yellowfin Tuna on Crispy Wonton, Crab Cakes with Tropical Melon Slaw, Red Snapper with Shaved Red Onion Fennel Salad, Herb Crusted Sea Bass with White Bean Ragout, homemade Key Lime Pie and Caramel Flan with Toasted Coconut. And a wine list that's reasonable and varied. Please visit our website for further details.

    Went to the restaurant on Friday the 10th and (my wife and I had visited the "Red Fish" previously) I was once again very satisfied with the food and the ambiance. This time, however. we decided to sit inside; none the less the view is still not too shabby.

    The service was good. The scenery was awesome! Very romantic. Went for my anniversary, I made an excellent choice. She loved it. Had a problem with the food. There was a little piece of plastic in it. But the manager came over and gave me a brand new same dish. Even though I was already done eating it. Awesome customer service. I will recommend it and will be back again.

    The restaurant is located in a very nice spot providing a romantic view ( but also providing the only negative aspect of the experience- the mosquitoes. I cut them a break on this as they could not be expected to solve this delimna but ask to sit inside if there is no breeze). The food is good as is the service. So with good food, good service and nice ambiance, this is a recommended find.

    I brought my boyfriend here for the first time for his birthday. I came at night it was very romantic, quiet and the scene was amazing, the service was great although I hate leaving negative feedback but I specifically requested for the waiter for do something simple but special for my boyfriend since it was his birthday and they failed to do so. I checked with the lady in the front and she let me know she would have the waiter bring dessert with a candle and they never did. Also they do not serve liquor. I definitely recommend this place, just make sure if you make a request you double check with the waiter.

  • Terrible Service and Mediocre Food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/19/2014
    Have been to Red Fish Grill many times through the years and the views outside are still lovely. It is a shame it is too hot to enjoy them half the year because sitting inside the restaurant and is cramped due to the low ceiling and table spacing. The food has really gone down hill. It is okay but not great like it was at one point many years ago. The portions are enormous. I would serve less and present a higher quality plate. Finally the service was atrocious. We had a 9pm restaurant and were made to wait 25 minutes and then another 10 minutes once we were at the table. I don't blame the waiter. He did the best he could do. They need to hire more staff and schedule better.

    Red Fish is lucky enough to have a spectacular location and outdoor dining spot. The waiter was superb. However, the food needs work. I had a tuna tartare that was not fresh. Tuna is not supposed to smell fishy when it is fresh. This is a must especially when served raw. It was also lacking in any taste whatsoever. The red snapper i ordered with a mango salsa type topping was overcooked. the salsa was good but not spectacular for the price charged. Overall, this is not a place for foodies. They need to get a more creative chef and definitely pride themselves in serving nothing but fresh food. I guarentee you the place would be packed if the food was good, fresh and innovative.

  • On the Water in Miami's South Dade
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    There are very few restaurants in south Miami-Dade where you can dine on the water, so we're very grateful for Red Fish! The view, elegance and food at Red Fish are all excellent. It is good for a romantic evening, and I love to take out-of-town guests here. Driving through Matheson Hammock State Park to get there is lovely, and parking is convenient and free. The food and service are consistently good.

    I called on Friday at 5:00pm for reservation for 6:30pm. This is virtually impossible with restaurants in Miami. I requested chilled white wine and table on the sand. WE showed up exactly at 6:30pm received the table of choice. The wine was ice cold in a champagne bucket on the table facing the ocean. THe new menu has a tremendous sword fish over a bed of sweet potato pure and bock-choy. My wife had their new tuna plate which was absolutely awesome. Waiters recognized us from previous visits. This place is a gem please don't tell anyone.

    Pan fried snapper and house wine for me and the little lady. We both adored the food and left our plates completely empty. Do yourself a favor and sample the pre-meal bread it was divine. I don't believe I have ever experienced service as good as this. There was a small downside. As I was approaching the restaurant the stench was horrid. Dade County should do a better job of maintaining the public bathrooms for the beach just outside the Red Fish grill.
