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.

    Red Fish Grill was recommended by a friend and we are so glad we took the advice to eat here! It is located at the end of a dark park road but the signs were helpful in getting us there. We dined outdoors and since it was dark there wasn't much of a lagoon view but the night skyline was beautiful and our experience was wonderful. Food was excellent....I had the seafood bouillabaisse and my daughter had the mahi mahi. We started with the crab cakes....all were delicious. Excellent service as well. We did not feel rushed through any part of our evening. We will definitely come back the next time we are in the area.

    If you are looking for great seafood dining, ambiance and a view. You get all three at the RED FISH GRILL. Our local gem in the City of coral Gables, tucked away at Matheson Hammocks Park. Make sure to arrive before the sunset. It will be a view you will never forget while you treat yourself to a nice bottle of wine.

    Spectacular place, very nice, with reasonable prices, food could be better but is OK, service should be improved-better training to employee is definitely required..... has a tremendous potential to be a "hot spot" in Miami.... need better trained personnel and better food (although food is OK)..... the bar? could be better..... Is really a beatiful ambient, spectacualr scenery.

    I took my girlfriend here for our anniversary, we were both equally impressed. The outside seating was beautiful and definitely set the romantic mood I was looking for. Staff was very welcoming. The tuna tar tare was amazing! The salmon was perfect. The only complaint I had (which I NEVER complain) the tuna entree had WAY too much seasoning. You couldn't even taste the tuna. When I told the waitress, she just said "Sorry, that's how it comes. After a few minutes of scraping off the excess seasoning, it was finally enjoyable. Overall a great restaurant.

Nice scenery outside since a small beach is right next to the restaurant. My girlfriend and I LOVED it! I would definitely recommend this place. The prices aren't too bad either.

    Extraordinarily beautiful location. Great place to watch the sunset over the water. The drive through the park to arrive sets a special tone. We felt lucky to be there. But like most places with amazing views, the food really disappoints. It's just so predictable; overpriced and underwhelming. It really seemed like they must have a lousy kitchen to work with, which would be understandable in such a park-like location. If I could do it gains, I would go for the view, drinks and appetizers and save my money and taste buds for a restaurant that specializes in 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.

    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.
