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.

    The place is lovely and romantic. I was disappointed with the food, maybe it was my choice of entrée however I expected much more for the price I paid. Service was good.

    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.

    The view is amazing. The ambiance is amazing. The restaurant is pricey, be willing to spend around $50 pp. Service is kind but a little bit slow. We has lobster which was terrific and seared tuna which wasn't great. The key lime pie was great.

    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.

    My grandma's been taking care of my aunt, who has cancer. So taking her to Red Fish for Miami Spice, I found, was a great way to provide someone I love with a bit of relief. I got the jicama gazpacho, cumin tuna, and a key lime pie. None disappointed (while I do yield the cumin tuna was the most distinguished of the bunch) while my grandmother (a particularly picky eater) enjoyed her oysters, blackened swordfish, and flan. Our waiter, Derrick, went beyond the call of duty to make us feel at home. If you're looking for a nice view of Downtown, you won't get it with outdoor dining...though that's my sole complaint. The "other side" of Biscayne Bay was nevertheless impressive. There's a certain magic watching the palms dance in the breeze!

    Even though we had a reservation we had to wait 40 min for a table outside and were then shoved to a table in the corner that was flimsy with plastic chairs. We ordered an expensive bottle of wine and were told there were no ice buckets left and they would have to take our wine back inside. Our waitress seemed to be rushing us the entire dinner and just quickly and clumsily refilling our wine glasses before we could barely get a sip in. This was supposed to be a nice birthday dinner for my husband and I was very disappointing with the service and mediocre quality of the food for the price.

    As a native of Miami, I recall when the historic Red Fish Grill building was the snack bar at Matheson Hammock. Maybe that biases my review, but each time we have eaten at this restaurant, the food, service, and ambience have all be amazing. We will continue to frequent Red Fish Grill on special occasions.

    From beginning to end, this meal was exceptional - and the cost was not much more than some very average places we went in Miami. The food was inventive but not weird, perfectly cooked and presented, and our waiter was exceptional. If you can handle the heat, sit outside - the view during the day is awesome, and nighttime is very romantic.

    My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant las Saturday. We love to take advantage if Miami Soice so we order from that menu. The octopus ceviche was great and large for an appetizer. The red snapper, which is from their regular menu, was just delicious. My husband ordered the gazpacho, which he loved, and the pork chop, so large he couldn't finish it. Overall, an excellent experience.
