Experience was great!
We ate in the upstairs restaurant.
The food was amazing!! The wine selection is good as well to fit different levels and very palatable.
Our waitress was great as well, very patient, had knowledge of the food being served as well as the preparation and when we asked to change the course that came with the fish, made great recommendation, we did not feel rushed even though we asked a number of questions about the different dishes and the wine. The deserts were really well prepared, very appealing and delicious.
The ambiance was great, it was not crowded, felt private even though we were in the middle of the floor, noise level was low.
Overall a great experience and will absolutely go back.

Excellent food and service! If you like seafood this is a definite stop in Ft. Lauderdale. The snapper and swordfish were both great and flavorful. Creme brulee duo for dessert was the perfect ending. Highly recommend!

The food was very delicious! We had the Fisheries Salad (very crispy and flavourful) and Crab cakes (crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, very delicious) for our appetizer. My husband had the Shrimp Scampi (very flavourful) and I had the Herb Roasted Chicken (very moist, tender and flavourful) for our main course.. Our severs Alvin and Bill were very knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive. My husband and I dined there for our anniversary and we received a card (which was a nice surprise) and a free dessert. We will definitely be dining there again!

The location and overall ambiance is really nice. The food was ok but lacked flavors expected from the rich south Florida seafood scene. Did not feel like fine Dinning and nighttime Dinning makes so sense as you cannot enjoy the intercostal view.

I also put in a request to acknowledge my anniversary. It was noted on the reservation but the server did not acknowledge it.

Wednesday is half priced bottle day, so go mid week and get a bottle. The calamari is done nicely, and a proper portion for two to share. The Fisheries Salad is a meal on it’s own.
Only dissatisfaction was with the Fish. We ordered the pan seared cobia. The fish was way over cooked. The Peach cream sauce with it was amazing, but I wouldn’t have expected the fish to be so poorly done on a slow night (Weds)

Even with a 7 PM reservation we had to wait at the bar for 25 minutes until the bartender went and checked out why we were not seated yet. If she didn’t inquire at the time we might have stayed at the bar for a longer wait to be seated.Outside of that circumstance it was a very pleasurable dining experience. We look forward to having a wonderful meal there again

Did upstairs dining and will never go back. The only thing good was the shrimp cocktail and the dessert. Shrimp and grits were drowning in maple syrup and unpalatable. Labster mac and cheese was just ok. The whole top was top was dried out. Husband got the miss glazed sea bass. It came out looking burnt. The fish was dry, bland, and disgusting. The butternut squash polenta side was cold and tasted of u cooked cornmeal. Then they switched it with thr grouper and that was ok but fish still dry and bland. Definitely not worth the price we paid for dinner for 3. Would not recommend going there for dinner. And if you do try the downstairs cause the upstairs is horrible. Server was great and the dessert was awesome but that's it.

Always enjoy the water views w/ lots of boats or yachts going by & love the white table cloths upstairs to make for a more upscale feeling. You can sit outside, downstairs at the docks but no res. there. You may need a reservation for indoors on busy nights or must wait anywhere from 5-10 min to maybe an hour for outside or inside. Enjoyed the food. Tuna tataki & a vegetarian squash dish gor me King Crab for hubby w/ a refreshing Arnold Palmer w/ pink lemonade. Waiters were very attentive, friendly & happy to serve. One of our go to places in town !!!

Lovely lovely intimate birthday dinner with my hubby!

The food is amazing!
The ambiance amazing!
Staff amazing

The only disappointment is I made reservations for 9pm and I didn't know that the good view was only from downstairs and they close at 9! upstairs is nice but I wanted to be closer to water and I think downstairs is much better feel.

Other than that this place is perfect! I will definetely be back! Before 9 tho :)

Eat here for an outstanding experience. Bill did a fine job of recommendations for our requests and we appreciated how his choices were not the go-to priciest dishes on the menu. His recs. did not disappoint us. There is a nice ambience at the upstairs dining area. As a customer of this restaurant for the past decade, I was able to introduce 15th to my fiancé. We will be back many, many more times!

It wasn’t amazing, but nothing tasted bad either. Crab cakes were flavorful. Cocktail sauce in the shrimp cocktail was delicious. Everything was good. I like to be blown away by at least one dish when I eat at a restaurant on the higher end of prices, but didn’t find that dish here. I wouldn’t be dying to go back for a meal but the views are great and the service was very good too, so cocktails and appetizers on the water would be something worth returning for.

Service was slow but food and drinks were great.

Bathrooms were a little dirty.
They should have someone in there twice an hour making sure they are clean and smell fresh.

Service was horrible. Being in service industry, we gave every ounce of excuse, but for the price, expectations were not meant.
We waited, and waited, and waited, people came amd went, and went again. Slow, slow. And it actually killed the vibe. It was our last dinner in Fort Lauderdale, reco’d from a dear local friend, and was completely disappointed. Was gonna ask for manager, but we were exhausted and over it. Would not recommend at all!
The Lobster, was not explained it was WHOLE, completely disappointing. With guts and all.
The time between soup and entree was 50 min.
So disappointed for our LAST vacation dinner

We always have a good experience at 15th Street Fisherie. The only bad experience last night was due to Open Table. We had a coupon we earned and we could not open it or use it. Today on your site I only got pat unhelpful responses to my complaint.

So I will continue to visit 15th Street Fisherie but I will not continue to use Open Table. Your rewards have diminished and still cannot be used in a friendly manner.

I have been dining at 15th St fisheries for decades and it has always been one of my favorites. They recently remodeled, and although they did a nice job, some of the old charm is now gone. The menu has also undergone many changes and the food was nothing special. No more delicious breads, the fisheries salad is decent, but not the same anymore and nothing on the menu was something I, or anyone in my party would have a desire to go back for again. The view is still spectacular, and the service was outstanding.
