Amazing food, views, and ambiance! Try the sea bass, it reinvents the feeling of “melt in your mouth!”

This venerable seafood restaurant still delivers on quality. Everything was very good to excellent. The valet service is fast and attentive. We were greeted nicely by the receptionist and our reservation was honored with a premium table upstairs by the window, overlooking boats and water. Service was attentive and helpful, not pushy, with server offering specials and recommendations. The seafood is excellent. Well-prepared and top quality. Among our entrees were grouper and snapper. Both superb. A big bonus is the basket of bread brought to the table. It is a large basket stuffed with 3 or 4 varieties of bread. All terrific. Bread pudding for dessert was well-prepared and plentiful. Only gripe is the expense. Most entrees are more than $35 and don't include salad or soup. However, quality was outstanding.

Good place for dinner. We were at a conference close by and the boss paid for the dinner, thankfully. It is quite pricey, especially the booze. However, it was worth the money. If we didn’t sit there and have 3 or 4 drinks a piece the bill would have been far more reasonable, as well.

We had a great time and the snapper was incredible!

Would go again.

Service was outstanding; crab was perfect appetizer. Sea bass was wonderfully prepared.
Only one policy change that I would push for: they automatically add 20% gratuity when we spilt a bill 50/50 with just 3 of us. As a standard we always tip 20% so that wasn’t my concern. We ordered one bottle of wine - 2016. And they brought out 2017 and asked if that would be acceptable at the same price and 2017 definitively cheaper - that was one concern. The 2nd was we settled on another nice bottle of wine - the gratuity was based on the full price bottle of wine. I just believe that portion of the tip should be decided by the customer not simply adding 20% because we used 2 credit cards vs one.

Cesar Salad was dry- no dressing- returned the salad to the server.
Salmon was fair.
Upstairs seating was somewhat empty except for a large party who were very noisy.
Not a good overall experience

Food was good, we had the special fish served with a pineapple fried rice. It was very different and good. Our server was not very accommodating. She is a little rude as well. However the other two men that were helping her last night were wonderful!!

Upon arriving at the hosts desk it took a good 45 seconds to be acknowledged. The hosts was busy having a conversation with another hosts complaining about a guest.
Once we were sat our experienced team of waiters were excellent!
We specifically came for stone crab claws. Unfortunately 2 of the claws in my order of 5 were spoiled. The meat smelled awful.
Our waiter was kind enough to remove them from the table and bring out new claws.
15th Street Fisheries is definitely a great restaurant, just stay away from the stone crab claws!

Bread, appetizer and dessert was good.
My entree was the sea bass served with fried rice and spinach. The rice was good, the spinach was very salty and the sea bass was mushy and strong. I could not eat it. The server noticed that I didn’t eat it and instead of asking was it ok, instead asked if I wanted to take it home. 😂 no!

We had a wonderful dinner at 15St Fisheries. The cuisine was excellent and we all left delightfully satisfied. The ambiance was perfect for celebrating our daughter’s birthday with a view of the intracoastal as previously requested. Our servers were great and made sure the children’s meals arrived early while our main courses were prepared to our satisfaction. Would highly recommend the 15 St Fisheries. We have been coming here for several years and have not been disappointed

Food was good, but my fish was over cooked. Service and ambiance were nice. Don’t bother using the valet to park your car though. It is terribly organized and managed to lose car keys.

Nice seafood selection on menu. Enjoyed a wonderful house salad which had shrimp and bacon. The snapper was over a bed of spinach with good garlic seasoning and crab fried rice.

If the upstairs dining is empty, as it was for us, I would say it’s better to eat downstairs.

The service is AMAZING!

It was just awkward since the table was in a small room and there was only one other table with people. Conversations go public, and we were hesitant on being overheard until we just drank away the shame lol

The food was good, but the overall experience was a bit off.

I made this reservation after researching a special location for my husband's birthday dinner while on vacation in Florida. I emailed the manager prior to advise this was a special occasion and wanted it to treated as such. I received an acknowledged email back from the manager that this could be accommodated. Sadly this was not the case. We arrived with no mention of our special occasion and were treated as just sit where you want it's no big deal. I was immediately embarrassed that the staff could have cared less. Celebrating birthday's are a big deal for us as we rarely are able to treat ourselves. Aside for that letdown it went down from there. We rarely saw our waiter who we tried to engage in conversation about the menu with no caring and just gave up. We ordered steaks with additional side of crab legs as this should be one of there specialties. The food was unremarkable. 300.00 dollars later we just couldn't want to get out of there as it ruined our night. I reached out to let the manager know and am still waiting but don't expect any caring on his part. Please don't waste your time and money here especially if you are celebrating.

This place is amazing!! The service, food & ambiance was fantastic. We made reservations to sit in the second level, but you can either sit in or outdoors. Will definitely return and sit outdoors when the weather gets cooler. Highly recommend.
