Terrific meal; location was a little dicey on a Saturday night-- South Beach can be a little chaotic!
Dear John, Thanks for trusting us with your evening of dining and for your review. We're glad to know we delivered a terrific meal and look forward to welcoming you back. Best regards from A Fish Called Avalon.
Location, food, and atmosphere on the patio was amazing. Really had a great time. Can’t wait to go again!!!

Went to the restaurant for a Friday night date with my wife and we had a great time. The atmosphere was amazing and the food was great. Overall, our experience exceeded our expectations and we look forward to coming back soon.

It's a pleasure knowing you enjoyed the great food, warm ambiance and welcoming services. Looking forward to serving you again. Best regards from A Fish Called Avalon.
We started seated outside, but the loud half naked twerking that was happening on the street nearby made us change our mind. The staff seemed embarrassed too, and quickly accommodated us. Once inside, it was delightful. Great service, delicious food. Over-priced, but that’s the norm for this area. REALLY enjoyed the manhattan!
Dear guest, thanks so much for joining us for dinner. We're sorry for the outdoor experience which we have no control over and are happy to have accommodated you inside, we appreciate your understanding. Thanks for your wonderful comments on the great service and delicious food! See you soon again. Warm regards from A Fish Called Avalon.
Exceptional food and service. The presentation was beautiful and we enjoyed our entrees and appetizers. Dessert (of course) is a must, there are several items they are famous for and I would go back just for dessert! The restaurant is in the cute Avalon Hotel, right in the Art Deco district. Christy was our server. She and all the staff did an impressive job!!!!
Thanks so much Nancy for spending a recent evening with us and taking the time to leave a detailed review. We're really pleased to know how much you enjoyed the food and services from our team. Let us know when you'll be back for dessert (or dinner!), there's always something delectable to delight on. Warm regards from A Fish Called Avalon.

We chose this restaurant based on the abundance of favorable reviews, what a mistake. The host tried to seat us on the outdoor patio right next to the amplifier of the live performer and the restaurant across the street was blaring hip hop music, not conducive to dining. When I asked for a quieter place to be seated the request was met with astonishment. We were taken to an empty dining room/area; the lights were not even turned on until 30 minutes after we were seated. The server rushed us through our dinner and gave least attentive service. The food was incredibly subpar. The salad we ordered looked like it had been dressed way in advance, it was watery and wilted, bread was at least a day old, and the entire experience very disappointing. The octopus was fine and the main course, their signature Chilean sea bass was not noteworthy. Perhaps it was a bad day...
Food was great, service was excellent. Highly recommend
La comida espectacular el lugar esta bajando de nivel llegas a sentirte inseguro. Los meseros parece que te están haciendo el favor.
Lastima antes era un buen lugar.
Everything was perfect. Food was tasty and everyone enjoyed the service.
Dear guest, thanks so much for dining with us recently and leaving your review. We're glad you had a perfect evening of tasty food and attentive services. Looking forward to serving you the next time you're in South Beach. Warm regards, A Fish Called Avalon.
Beer options are limited to 4, that was only disappointment of the night... food was fantastic!!
Great food, service, and live music.
This restaurant lives up to its reviews. We ordered the bang bang calamari, Chilean sea bass, red snapper and key lime pie and each were outstanding. Any other place we eat in South or Miami Beach will now be a disappointment! Book a reservation, you won’t be disappointed.
Great live music
Dear guest, we're so glad you dined with us recently. Thanks for taking the time to leave your 5-star review to let us know how much you enjoyed the overall dinner experience we provided. Indeed, our musician is quite talented and we're glad the music added to your pleasure. We look forward to welcoming you back. Best regards from A Fish Called Avalon.
The seabass was great but broth was bland. The prawn special was great. The orange margarita was not so good. Service was fabulous. The ambience was not good...the vibe at South Beach has degraded....very seedy, and somewhat threatening.
Was at Avalon way back in 2012 and loved the food then. Brought my Fiance here this time in 2021 as were were passing through. The food was once again amazing with fantastic service.
This was our second night on Sobe and our friends met us here. The food was really good. Chilean sea bass was exceptionally prepared. Ribeye steak was good. We sat outside which was a little noisy but it is Sobe and the vibe was great!
Dear guest, thanks for trusting us with your friends dinner and get together. We're so glad to know you had a wonderful time dining on our excellent seafood and steak dishes and enjoyed the vibe. Let us know when you'll be back, there's always so much more to delight in. Best regards from A Fish Called Avalon.

FANTASTIC food!! Delicious!!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR FANTASTIC REVIEW of your evening with us! We're all immensely pleased to know you had a perfect evening and look forward to welcoming you back for more delicious dining. Warm wishes from A Fish Called Avalon.
Wonderful service. Some noise because of spring breakers blasting speakers as they walk by but we knew that would be the case. Scallops appetizer was awesome, and they were accommodating for a celiac allergy.
Dear ThomasR, thanks so much for choosing to have dinner with us recently. Happy you enjoyed our attentive services and wonderful meal and it's our pleasure to assist with providing allergy free food based on your needs. We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future. Best regards from A Fish Called Avalon.
Best fish I’ve ever ate!!! Must stop when in Miami!!! Jose was extremely knowledgeable and truly enjoyed his job.

Thanks for choosing us and thanks for leaving your kind comments on our excellent cuisine and attentive services from Jose who is indeed a gem. We look forward to many, many more evenings together! Best regards from A Fish Called Avalon.
I wasn’t prepared for the lack of parking. We had to park on the street several blocks away, however the food, service and local environment made the parking hassle worth it.
Dear KrissiC, thanks so much for choosing to spend your evening with us. Glad you enjoyed our delicious cuisine, attentive services in our welcoming ambiance. We look forward to welcoming you back! Warm regards from A Fish Called Avalon.
Great good, but crap service. Ordered the trottole and macadamia crusted snapper. Both were delicious, luckily, because the server was garbo.
We came here for our family dinner (2 children 11 and 13) and the restaurant was very loud, with the table of 3 next to us being drunk and shouting profanities the whole evening. The food was good but expensive. Overall, very disappointing experience.
Dear guest, We're sorry for the experience you had while visiting with your family. As you are aware, the crowds became unruly but rest assured we are taking all precautions to ensure the safety of our guests and staff. We look forward to welcoming you back during a less hectic time of the year.
Covid definitely affecting my overall experience. Food so so for price; however everyone who got paella seemed pleased over the top & it smelled great. We got only apps which were so so for the price.
Dear Helen, thanks for visiting us recently while in South Beach. We're sorry to hear Covid affected the experience. Indeed, the paella is one of our bestsellers and guests rave about it. Perhaps when the pandemic is over you'll revisit us for a better experience. Warm regards from A Fish Called Avalon.
Best seafood and presentation! Guitarist was amazing and very much enjoyed by our family
Dear Browns, many thanks for joining us with your family while in South Beach. We're so happy knowing you all had a great evening of dinging and enjoyed the live musician who also sends his thanks. Let us know when you'll be back, we'd love to welcome you again. Warm regards from A Fish Called Avalon.
We enjoyed our dinner on the patio. Service was top notch. Food was very good. Must try the key lime pie.
Thanks so much JenniS for your perfect 5-star rating. We're immensely pleased to know you had a wonderful evening and thoroughly enjoyed our food, service and people watching. Indeed, that Key Lime Pie is amazing and we're glad to hear you enjoyed it. Warm regards from A Fish Called Avalon.
