The location is fantastic. The food is quite good. The restaurant is closing soon for renovations. The wine list is very limited due to the imminent closing. The wine cellar will be restocked upon reopening.

The food was delicious, the service outstanding and he staff went out of their way to make it a memorials evening for our daughters 13th birthday. We were waited on by the restaurant’s captain who was marvelous. He guided us with our selections and was spot on. We love Fish Out if Water and it did not disappoint.

We love celebrating Mom’s Birthday at Fish Out of Water every year before Thanksgiving. Captain Morgan is the BEST - looking forward to another amazing dinner next year!

We always try to make it to FOOW when visiting 30A. I personally love the relaxed ambiance and consistent quality of the food. This was our last visit before what was described to us as a 5 month, 3 million dollar renovation. The Watercolor Inn has always been upscale but this sounds like things will be going to a whole new level. Can't wait to try it when completed around May 2018. In the mean time we highly recommend you try the Snapper or Lobster in squid ink pasta
( and a souffle for dessert) so you can make your own before and after comparisons.

We booked in advance an outdoor table for sunset. When we got there we were told they don't hold outside tables. The receptionist had an attitude and was not nice about it either. I said you have my phone number and my email, why didn't you let me know this? Reluctantly, we stayed and sat at a table next to the window and all we saw were the people getting to see the sunset. The food was not up to par (we have been coming here for 25 years) Our waiter was great, but definitely will not put this on my list again. No "I'm sorry," nothing. Just rude rude manager. We know A LOT of Nashville folks that come here and will certainly share our experience.

This was our third dining experience here. The food and service has been constiently good. However, I was a little disappointed with recent experience probably because I ordered the special entree, without asking questions, consisting of four jumbo shrimp, a couple slices of bok Choy on a bed of brown rice all priced at $45. Tasty but over priced. It would have been a good appetizer.

My husband and I ate here for dinner for our anniversary. Everything from the atmosphere to the food was 5 stars! Also, I have eaten here before but only for breakfast, which is also 5 stars! I look forward to having dinner and breakfast here next trip!!

We love this restaurant. We only come to florida every few years but it is our favorite place for special family gatherings.

FOOW needs some new blood. We have had much better meals. Maybe it was an off night. Still a fabulous space. And innovative food.

Fantastic food and great service, every year when we are here on vacation. The wine list is extensive and the wait staff are always helpful and knowledgeable.

Great sunset dinner at FOOW! Everything from the cocktails to the dessert was extremely well done and beyond satisfying. We’ll be back!

The entire group enjoyed their dinner. We had beef, fish and even one vegan meal (which was wonderfully prepared and presented). Yes, the place is pricey, but it was worth every penny. The service was outstanding. No water glass was ever empty and never did we have to search for a waiter/waitress. We will definitely go back once we are back in the area.

Outstanding experience from start to finish. It's been awhile since I've been impressed with every stage of food service. A "thank you" to Luke and the rest of the team.
