Food is good, setting old school fine seafood restaurant. Server was great, but food was incredibly slow coming out between apps and main course. Seated at 6:20, didn’t get main courses until after 8pm for table of 10. Other than that, it was good.

Server did not offer to tell us about specials or anything about the menu. We had to initiate any conversation about the food selections.Very disappointing considering the price point on this restaurant

The service and good were incredible. We ate upstairs and had a reservation and they seated us timely. We had a water view and had 3 servers assisting us. Reynolds was possibly the most knowledgeable server I’ve ever had.

Excellent food & great view of the intercostal. Service was fine. We enjoyed the food so much, we went back the next evening and sat downstairs to try the more casual menu. Again, we were not disappointed. The food was excellent.

It was wonderful overall. Service top notch! Sea bass was extraordinary, mahi mahi was first rate. Only knock was the salad was not good - lettuce was starting to go. Overall five stars experience and four stars because if something wasn’t first rate, I’m glad it was the salad.

Great restaurant with great views and excellent food. We had a great table for 8 people with a view.
Fort Lauderdale has many places to eat. You should make this one of them.

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.

In town for a wedding and wanted a good fish dinner. Checked out online and liked the location and selection. Booked 7:45 pm reserve on Open Table. We showed up on time and were seated immediately. Our waiter took drink, app & dinner. It took a bit but got drinks. My Old Fashioned was uninspired. Crab cakes were good.
Waiter did not return. Food finally came out, delivered by a server.
I had the halibut on a quinoa. Dinner bland. No salt or pepper on table. Had to ask server passing by.
Waiter had not returned and another waiter/server came by asked if everything was ok. water & tea glasses were empty by then and hadnt been refilled. I replied that we hadnt seen our waiter. She started to explain some situational excuse. I cut her off and said why it had become my problem.
Finished dinner. A manager stopped by to check on us.
Not worth trip.

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.

Valentine’s Day dinner with my hubby. I’d have really liked to sit by the front windows upstairs, but where we were was fine, too. The decor is nautical, and authentic. The staff confirmed my husband’s scallop allergy, which I mentioned in my Open Table reservation. The bread basket had a wonderful small selection of delicious breads. Quality over quantity. Each kind was homemade and delicious! My cocktail was tasty, but could have been mixed just a little more thoroughly. The shrimp cocktail appetizer was very good. I could tell the sauce wasn’t from a bottle. The shrimp were tender and cooked well. Hubby had the lobster, and was very happy with it. I had the grouper. It was cooked well, tasted fantastic. The dish’s flavors were well paired.
We had the flan for dessert, and I honestly could not choose which one I liked better, because they were both so good!!
All in all, a lovely meal, in a lovely location. The valet parking makes all the difference, and the front of the establishment made it look like someplace I wanted to live, a charming house in the Keys, surrounded by lush tropical vegetation. The koi were enormous!! I can’t wait to come back and have lunch downstairs, and see the tarpon!

We had a beautiful dinner ~ we enjoyed the Chef’s Special and the lobster, a bottle of sauvignon blanc, with a wonderful view. Ernie, our server was attentive and knowledgeable. We love 15th Street Fisheries, especially for our special events.
