Service was great and so was the food! I had the sea bass and my wife had the grouper - neither of us were disappointed as the food was perfectly seasoned and prepared. We topped off dinner with a couple cocktails and the brownie dessert. First time and definitely will be back next time we’re in town!

Ordered a fish dish and it was dry. The waiter sent it back and the second try as just as bad. The third time the fish was properly cooked. I had the fillet steak and that too was dry.

The best part of the meal was the desert.

There are better fish restaurants out there.

Ourselves and 2 other couples all went on a one week vacation together and were enjoying the last night. Booked our reservation on open table after reading reviews.

The restaurant is an older one with the interior looking like the inside of an older dining room with wood walls and marble tables. Very old school.

Our service was amazing. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable with the right amount of playfulness.

Two individuals had the lobster pasta and raved about the amount of lobster on their plate. I had the red snapper and my SO had the spiny lobster. One of our party had the filet and the final person had the crab cakes. We were all very satisfied with our meals.

We split 2 desserts between the 6 of us (key lime bar and fried cheesecake.

We ended our meal by going down to see the tarpon out back. The bait shop next door sold us a bag of frozen fish to feed to the fish and we enjoyed watching the lightning fast fish race to the shrimp.

Overall, this evening was close to perfect. Great food, good service and quiet intimate atmosphere!

i'm sorry, maybe I need to get out more, but I don't believe that the prices match the food that was ordered. Maybe if we were downstairs, there may have been a better value.

Fantastic experience, had an anniversary with my wife and they treated us exceptionally. Appetizers, main courses and desserts were delicious. The view near the water was beautiful. Have reiterate that service and treatment was top notch.

I wanted to be seated facing the water. It took me two requests before that was granted. The main reason of making the reservation was to be able to enjoy the water view with the fishes. Next Time I will call in order to make sure that I don't have to be begging around.

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
