MoonFish - Orlando Ratings and Reviews
The evening was great. Our server was new and the manager checked in on us to make sure all was well.
I have to say I was taken aback by some of the portions. We ordered a side of asparagus and was told it would be 6-8 pieces of the larger asparagus and would be enough to share for 3 people. I was shocked when it arrived with 4 stalks of asparagus.
We were also debating between the triggerfish on the menu and the triggerfish that was on special that night. They had the same sides and both topped with crab meat. When asking the waitress which was better she said the special - so we ordered the special. I was shocked when I received the bill and the special was $49.95 (and regular menu item was $34.99). I asked the waitress and she said the special had more crab meat on it and then came back and said the special had foie gras butter sauce - but she neglected to mention that when she described the special. I never would have ordered it if I had known the cost - I should of asked. I was not that impressed with the fish special and should have ordered a filet instead.
I would return to this restaurant because it has great service and ambiance and menu selection. We just had a new server and miscommunication.
It was my eleven year anniversary with my wife. We have came her every anniversary three years in a row. Service was great every time except this night. The service was at bare minimum my Waiter did his job but didn't big the experience of Moonfish. Didn't offer a wine or suggested an appetizer. We got both anyway but the server before brought it amusing apps , let us sample a taste of a wine selection we got it All but tonight I felt he was done and wanted to go home it's ok I'm always coming back but that night he did his job no flare!! He still did his job but I guess I wanted to be sold on the experience to spend more and I didn't thanks will be back
Overpriced and somewhat pretentious. Ordered a $37 ahi tuna, that was quite good, but came on a empty plate. There should have been a side included.
Food was good In general, and our waitress tried hard, but came across as totally scripted
It was my wife’s birthday, and let them know it when I placed the reservation. They acknowledged it with some rose petals on the table. With a $200 dinner tab, a piece of cake and a candle should have been offered
So many other choices in the area that beckon
First of I have to say that I am very picky when it comes to restaurants for a special occassion. I was impressed by the ambiance, the older tasteful chandelier, and overall layout of the restaurant. We had a private room with 24 people and it was worth every penny spent that night. The appetizers, cantaloupe martini etc was worth it all!
We had a fabulous meal! I had mentioned ahead of time that we were celebrating a b-day and our table had a card and rose petals. That was a very nice touch! The manager offered us a complementary taste of the avocado/crab appetizer and it was delicious. All of our meals and appetizers were wonderful. Service was beyond expectation. We definitely felt well taken care of. The crème Brule was amazing! Thank you for a wonderful dinner out!
A solid "OK" seafood and steak place with a relatively diverse menu with entrees that come with a salad and bread . Some of the entrees came with a starch or vegetable, others did not. The food was OK - i expected more for the price, but the serving size was good. My seared nori-crusted ahi was perfectly cooked and was bigger than I expected - I would have preferred a a smaller sized cut with a serving of rice (that came with a friend's crab-crusted sea bass). But it was a pleasant meal for 7 of us - everyone could find something that they were happy with!
Always excellent food and service. Whenever we are in Orlando we come here for the ahi tuna. Price is fair and preparation is excellent every time. Over the last 6 years have never been disappointed! I asked for a quiet table and was given a booth in the corner-they actually read my request and made sure we were happy with the table. Most places don’t bother.
I went to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and they were outstanding! The table was nicely decorated and the manager checked on us throughout the night. They made sure he felt special on his day. They went above and beyond to make sure we had a great night.
We had Kevin as our server and he never missed a beat. Upon walking in the restaurant you have a great warm upscale feel both inside and out. Everything we had was truly exceptional but, my favorites were the wasabi wedge salad, triggerfish, lobster gravy potatoes, and ahi tuna. I will be gladly returning to this restaurant even though it’s 95 miles from where I live.
The service, ambiance, appetizers, specials, desserts and drinks were outstanding and worthy of qualifying as a fine dining experience. The fresh Stone Crab appetizer for four (4) claws was very good but I think overpriced. For an appetizer to be $79, I would think that the Server should tell you how much it is without being asked. The Shrimp Cocktail was also outstanding for $18 for three (3) large shrimp and the Stone Crabs were certainly not over four (4) times better than the Shrimp Cocktail. I was shocked at the "Market Price" for the Stone Crabs.
Fantastic seafood and regular fare. In Orlando for a convention and visited Moonfish two of 4 nights.
Family owned and run local “chain” of distinctive restaurants, without a chain feel.
Try the stone crabs when in season. Fabulous! Exceptional sides, as well as deserts
We are from Minnesota and Moonfish was recommended to us by someone that has been down there before!! We are so happy we went and are proud to say it is the best seafood we have ever had! The server was amazing! Answered all questions we had and was great at recommending entrees for us! I will definitely be visiting again when we go back down to Orlando!
First time I ever had sea bass was at this restaurant 5 years ago. Had it again — grilled with lump crab meat — and it was outstanding! And so were the string beans. My wife had mahi mahi which was also great. Service was great too. What a great place to celebrate our 39th anniversary!
Had the most amazing birthday dinner for my mom along with my wife and daughters. Coming from San Francisco, an Asian and seafood restaurant Mecca, this may be the first Orlando restaurant that lived up to our expectations of what a special occasion dinner should be. Staff was spot on with one minor exception as were the drinks and our meals (again with one minor exception). We highly recommend this eatery experience for business dinners with special clients, for birthdays, anniversaries or just a nice night out. Happy hour drinks were a bonus in price and quality especially served by our engaging and attentive perfect Grey Goose Martini mixtress Sarah. Dinner was a gastronomic delight with highlights like mouth watering fire roasted cream corn, lobster encrusted Hawaiian triggerfish and lightly truffled butter for dipping fluffy cheesy-bread goodness. Surprisingly the pork chops won the best of the evening - wow I hope somebody at your table gets them so you can all have a bite. Our serving team of JC and Tyler were spot on with the recommendations (I sadly missed the well tailored hint from Tyler not to order the swordfish (which was mushy, bland and unremarkable.) My entree along with a some awkward server aggressiveness by Tyler aimed getting us to add alcohol to our desserts that we didn't really want ( which he brought anyway and which actually messed up the great flavor of our crime brûlées - we caved and let him charge us to end the sales pitch.) were the only real blemishes to an almost perfect experience.
Bottom line: Book Moonfish and enjoy just be firm about what you don't want
