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.

    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!

    Had dinner at Red Fish Grill for a quiet Romantic Birthday. It was perfect. View, Service and Food were all very good. My Sea Bass was perfectly prepared. Only a couple of cautions. I wouldn't recommend the tuna tartar if you really like tuna tartar, I didn't find this one great.

    Dined on 8/22/2014
    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.

    Everything was amazing at Red Fish except the general manager who almost made me walk out before I even sat. Refused to sit us outside even though it was previously requested. Claimed it may rain which it never did. Also the only other complaint that I have is that this place has two bathroom stalls total. I was sent out near the beach to use that restroom. The food and my server were amazing. Def a Great spot if you can get past the general manager who could possibly be the rudest person i've ever dealt with at a restaurant.

    I found this restaurant in a guide selecting the 10 most romantic restaurants in Miami ad they did not disappoint me! Service was very good and the food excellent. Two small remarks: they were out of tuna the night we were there (but they offered us complementary desserts), and the 2 white wines I had did not impress me (no worries, the wine list has plenty of choices). Apart from that, I would really recommend the place to anybody looking for a nice, romantic dinner in Miami

    Beautiful location and food was great but really lame service. It took over 30 mins to get our appetizers, no bread. ( they ran out by 7:45), entrees another 20-30ins to come out. It's a shame - potential is there for this to be an amazing dining experience if they get professional manager.

    A family occasion brought us (couple + elderly mother) to Red Fish. The setting is always lovely. Unexpectedly the food was also especially wonderful. Really spectacular unique dishes with delicately interesting, good flavor, prepared to perfection. Presented beautifully. Also the service was flawless, tailored to our personal needs. If you haven't been for a few years, know that the culinary arts have improved; and it is now a spectacular food destination in addition to a lovely setting. And we were luck to be there at the start of the Miami Spice season, with wonderful selections for the three course dinners. And, we could actually hear each other and converse. All good.

    Beautiful restaurant, great food, amazing location. You almost feel like you left Miami and were transported to an island get-a-way. The only thing we could complain about was, the host playing favorites with the better tables in the house. Even though we arrived very early for dinner (6:30), and we had made specific reservations three days before, we were given some ambiguous excuse as to why the the better tables were "not available" to us. Other than that, great experience.
