    Went for anniversary dinner and everything we had was amazing and unique. Our server also did an excellent job recommended options to us based on what we liked. I would highly recommend the tuna rolls as well as the lobster app. We are looking forward to going back for the hog fish as well. The time to wait for food was quick and the atmosphere is intimate with cool artwork.

  • Miami Spice Experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/24/2013
    Went there during Miami Spice, and the menu options were quite good. Looking around the restaurant the portions looked huge, (un)luckily my option (the Chilean Seabass) was not that huge, but it was very good. I don't know if I'd go back during normal menu prices, but definitely was a good deal during Miami Spice, but not memorable. The place was a bit loud inside.

    This is a hidden neighborhood gem- excellent fresh seafood- offered most of usual menu for Miami Spice- the shrimp tempura appetizer, Chilean sea bass, and mixed seafood dishes were all excellent. They also give you a small salad. Desserts were small but good. Highly recommended.

    Dined on 5/25/2013
    I have been to Fif'i's several times before. However, this time my experience was HORRIBLE. The waiter started out attentive and after that it was all downhill. My friend's appetizer came first and my did not come until about 20 minutes later. Our entrees were okay - I had the chilean sea bass which I had before, but it was kind of dry. Then it took almost 30-40 minutes after we requested our check to get it. Actually, if we had got up and left without paying I don't know if they would have noticed. But that's not the type of person I am. Will I give it another chance? Maybe - since this is the first horrible experience. But there are many other good places to try in the area, so it may be awhile.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 5/19/2013
    We first discovered Fifi's on a trip to Miami Beach about five or six years ago. We were very impressed with the quality of the fresh fish. We recently brought a group of 14 people there, and were equally impressed. Everyone in our party raved about the food, and again the catch of the day was outstanding. The restaurant staff was very accomodating to our large group, the waitstaff was very friendly and informative, and overall service was excellent. This is a short cab ride from the South Beach area, and a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle - and prices - of South Beach for a nice dinner.

One thing I would change is the way they have for waiter system . She has a lot of young kids serving but you have to continually ask them for something.

    The food was great. We had a shrimp tempura appetizer that was very tasty - most shrimp don't have much taste but these were mouth watering and very much tasted like shrimp. The grilled calamari was also scrumptious. And the fish and shrimp cerviche was equally good. I think the shrimp tempura appetizer is a must! The catch of the day - hogsnapper was very good. The mashed potatoes side disd was outstanding as were the salads and sauteed vegetables. This restaurant is a North Beach restaurant right in the neighborhood where we vacation every few months so now that we know about the place we will be back. It was great to see all of our neighbors there on Saturday night. And with the open table reservation, we didn't have to wait. THANKS ALOT

    We walked out of Fifi's pleasantly surprised and recommending it to everyone know since the day we dined there---even after a couple of service glitches. But those mixups happen and overall, the staff was very professional and aimed to please which is what is important. Now to the food... loved the bisque and the hog snapper ANY way it is prepared. It is however, on the very pricey side, and a long drive for us, but its worth the ocassional drive up there for good, solid food.

    We had an amazing experience at Fifi's place. The food was outstanding and the service was more than what we could imagine. We were greeted by the hostess right away and soon after we were at our table. We were then greeted by our waitress and friendly staff, they offered some amazing appetizers, the stone crab and tempura shrimp (they are truly a must have for first timers!). We had the parillada for 1, which my wife and me split. It was enough for the both of us to share. If you are going in groups of 4 or more I would suggest to order it so everyone can try it. Overall it is a gem and we will certainly be back for more.

    We went to Fifi's specifically for the stone crab. They advertise this on their website & on a big neon sign in the front. We placed our order for Jumbo - the server came back. They were out. We ordered colossal. The server came back they were out. I think if he actually had put in the order right away we would have enjoyed the stone crab. Overall the food was OK. The service was very slow. 15 minutes to order a drink. 35 minutes from when we were seated until the first beverage arrived. The wine was good. I would not recommend this place due to the service & the menu not being able to be fulfilled.

    Nice addition to upper beach -- a quality seafood house. The stone crabs (we had large) were absolutely fresh and better than we had at Joe's a few months earler. Mixed seafood grill for two (parillada) with just oil and garlic was also excellent. Perfectly cooked - slightly crispy outside but moist inside - and all fresh. This preparation was completely satisfying and we saw no need for the "famous" butter garlic sauce preparation. Flan desert, gratis, was outstanding. This was a riff on Brasilian "pudding," made with sinfully rich condensed milk. We liked seeing the seafood on display but the decor, with flowing hanging sheets, was a little silly.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 2/5/2013
    Coming from the Florida Keys and being used to really fresh fish and chefs that know how to prepare it, I have to say I was disappointed. I read reviews on this place and really wanted to fall in love with it and have a new favorite restaurant to go to when visiting my daughter in Miami Beach. Although the snapper was actually real snapper and not a frozen square piece of fish like many restaurants in Miami seem to use, it was way overcooked, dry, and flat tasting. I know that a restaurant can have an off night and may be willing to try it again - if I do, I will post my results again. The service was not very good, I was never asked if I wanted a second glass of wine.

    The restaurant felt dated but seems most of the places that I visited in Miami Beach felt that way. I ate outdoors, on the sidewalk cafe, it seemed less stuffy than inside if you didn't mind the skateboarders whizzing by on one side and busy Collins Ave. on the other. There are approx 8 ceviches on the menu, I had a traditional one, that was adequate. All were overpriced at between $18-$23 per appetizer. Should have had the stone crabs, looked great but at $50 /lb seemed expensive especially since this is one of the best harvests on record. For Main menu I had Paella it was delicious, full of seafood, and a wide variety of crusteans. It was moist but not swimming is broth and the rice was cooked perfectly.
