This was our first time dining at this restaurant. It came highly recommended so we decided to check it out. We started in the bar area with a few cocktails since we were early for our reservations (upstair dining room). Service was quick drinks were delicious. The view in upstair dining was great overlooking the intercoastal. We had crab cake and shrimp cocktail for apps, both were good but my preference was the crab cake. Our main course I had the Sea Bass which was quite delicious however the glaze on top could be considered too sweet for some individuals. My friends had the pan seared snapper and the mahi mahi. All entrees were really good and flavorful. Servers were friendly however I felt they could have been a bit more attentive BUT to their credit maybe they didn’t want to disturb our get together because they were there when we needed them. We would definitely return! It was a great environment and even better food and drinks!

We were very happy with our visit to this establishment. Waiter was fun, food delicious, ambience great! Worthwhile going. We went for dinner, but we imagine lunch would be a very nice experience as well since it’s right on the water.

King crab legs were EXTREMELY salty. Mentioned to server who said that’s just the way they come and they don’t add salt to them. Ive never had crab legs this salty in my life. Couldn’t finish them

Our only disappointment was that the online Chefs menu was not available for dinner. The reason we went to 15th st was a desire to try the dishes presented on the website.

Food was ok. Service was EXCELLENT. I’ve now gone to this place twice in 1998 and once in 1999 when I swore I wouldn’t go back. For the money per plate there’s a lot of other places you can go. The ambiance is the only thing that will get me back there again.

We went last night for my husbands birthday. We enjoyed the ambiance of the water views and the cleanliness of the restaurant. Most of all we LOVED the crab cakes, the snapper dish and the lobster. There is nothing bad about our dinner last night. Oh and our cocktails literally had alcohol which helped to end the night well lol. Thanks again for an amazing birthday dinner.

Food was good not great. Had the grouper upstairs. Cheese in the quinoa? Grouper was good and cooked well. Stone crab wasn’t flashed right when caught so meat stuck to the shell. Soup was also good but nothing about the appetizer or the main course was spectacular. Desert was excellent and by far the best part of the meal. Over all 3.5 stars but not quite worth 250 for 2 people. Would eat here again but would try downstairs at a lower price.

Reynolds is a excellent server by far. The atmosphere is extremely beautiful with waterfront views. Overall a good evening and good food. Food did not have that wow factor but quite delicious. Will return so that says something.

Food here was delicious. The fish is fresh and the menu is very interesting. We did not know that the prices in the upstairs restaurant are double those Dockside Be aware that the open table reservation will only apply to dining upstairs.
We ate downstairs. All four of us had Mahi mahi prepared different ways and they were all wonderful. The salads were great. The conch soup was superb.
The servers were friendly but the service itself was erratic. I ordered a drink and it came about 20 minutes after our appetizers. We had to search for people to bring us silverware and napkins when our salads and hot soup were already on the table.
The weird thing was paying. We were two couples and we presented 2 credit cards. They advised us that a 20% gratuity would automatically be added to our bill if we gave 2 credit cards. We probably would have given 20% anyway but the truth is the service was not as attentive as it should have been. Things to be aware of if you are dining here.
Yet, I still would recommend this restaurant

Upstairs requires a reservation. So I made a quick reservation on a Monday night and got the time slot I wanted. The service was great. The food was good. There is a little elevator to take you up and complimentary valet parking. Have some quarters to feed the koi fish out front.

This use to be our favorite restaurant for special occasions. The service was poor especially the male waiter. His attitude and attention was apalling. The young lady was nicer but very busy. The food was a big disappointment also. The table was in a poor location also. We felt like we were not welcome there which is not a problem because we will not come back.

Our grandsons from NYC came for a visit. When asked where they wanted to have dinner, they picked, as they always do, 15th Street Fisheries. Everything about our dining experiences there is always perfect from the moment we walk in until we leave. 15th Street Fisheries is our family's favorite restaurant in Fort Lauderdale!

It has become really hard to find a good seafood restaurant. After eating at a couple of lousy ones my wife and I spent ~30 minutes researching good ones and finally landed on this. It definitely lived up to expectations! It had a great view of the water and the food was delicious. We will be coming back next time we're in Ft. Lauderdale.
