I really enjoy the quality of the food and service. The appetizer was awesome. The fish carpaccio and the Greek salad were top. Then, we shared a whole fish.. the turbot was prepared espectacular
Congratulations. Really excellent

Excellent selection of fresh fish in the showcase . David, our waiter, took him time explaining all the different fish, where it’s from, how it can be prepared, etc.
Kitchen is open and Chef Giovanni worked his magic with all our appetizers and entrees . We were gifted with a homemade orange cello which was delicious.
Definitely will go back . Excellent fresh fish and although pricey it’s worth every cent. Thank you David & Chef Giovanni .

My wife and I shared an outstanding, whole Pompano. F&B is a small, personal restaurant, which is good, but visit when you're not in a hurry, because the food preparation can take some time, but worth the wait. Put your order in early, get an appetizer, wine, and be patient. Top place for seafood.

First of all, the food and wine - GREAT, no doubt! FRESH, FRESH fish prepared well. Generous pours on wines by the glass. Delicious appetizers. Good, deep menu.
The restaurant is SMALL, cramped, and it’s a bit noisy. We made reservations a week in advance but somehow ended up stuck at a cramped table for four, right next to the front door - so every In&Out created noise and heat.
The service was sporadic - checking on us frequently for a few minutes, then letting long periods of time elapse before checking in again. They were definitely short-staffed.
I led with the positives because, food-wise, it’s grand. However it is PRICEY…. our table had two fresh fish that were $85 and $60. No sides included. I would just appreciate, for that price, a roomier table, less sporadic service, and maybe a little rice or a veggie?
GO because it’s great food but be prepared.

Best restaurant in LBTS and Ft. Lauderdale! Great ambiance, service, and of course outstanding food. The fish is the freshest and you are shown the day’s catch. The chef/owner is very caring to make your order to perfection. Don’t forget to try the cauliflower purée. It is great. This restaurant should be put at the top of your list to go to ASAP!

Perfect night at this new restaurant!
Finally, this place is not a tourist trap.
Presentation of fresh fish was amazing, the food tasty and perfectly cooked!

Nice set up, fun to see the chefs in action, a bit too much lighting but i do recommend fish n’bubbles.

We will be back for sure for our next visit in Pompano

Amazing seafood, cooked to perfection! Accompanied by wonderful wine selection. Not rushed, time to savor every choice. Take the "fish walk", choose how it's cooked, choose an appetizer to share, choose sides and sit back and enjoy.

Fish’n Bubbles Seafood and Grill is a must try if you are looking for an authentic, rich, and flavorful Mediterranean seafood experience in Fort Lauderdale.

If you are a person who likes to eat with your eyes first, this is a gold mine. It is one of the few places in Fort Lauderdale where I have truly seen art and theater on a plate. The chef is passionate and will personally come greet guests, which I thought felt very welcoming and personal.

Fish n’ Bubbles was a fantastic surprise and a restaurant we now rank as our top # 1 choice for fine dining in Fort Lauderdale! We had the best meal ever! The chefs Giovanni and Jessipe welcomed us and made sure ever detail was to our liking. We felt like we entered a magical kingdom of fine dining. The fish choices were excellent and Jessipe skinned and deboned the cobra, a fish rarely seen on local menus as the chefs usually save it for themselves! The grilled artichokes hearts as a side were tender and tasteful, as was the crab cakes appetizer. The grand prize was the deserts with a pistachio gelato covered in a frozen dark chocolate coat and a walnut cake that was light and exquisite. It was a wonderful anniversary evening and my husband and I look forward to visiting soon! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

2nd time here & Chef Giuseppe Giannino does not disappoint!!! Hubby had John Dory- that was incredible as I enjoyed the Tilefish. Sides of grilled Bok Choi & radicchio were a great add to the main dishes. Also had grilled artichoke & cauliflower purée. So
good! Finished off with orangecello . Hubby liked his dessert- chocolate & coffee- double expressos!!! Our server was very knowledgeable about all the fresh fish- we appreciated that.
This restaurant is exactly what we want & are going to be regulars!!! Be back soon!!!

A new place and much to be learned. The hostess was very unpleasant and unfortunately, that is a turn off for a new place.. The waiter was nice, used to work at Mojos, so not new to service, but overwhelmed with 8 tables so service was less than stellar. The food was very good but very small portions and very pricey. I wish all new restaurants well but they will need to try snd be more pleasant to keep customers.

Lately we have been looking for non corporate restaurants that are not Italian In our area, not that easy! This is an all fish restaurant. Everything was cooked to order and cooked perfectly with flavor! Great wait staff, also challenging right now in South Florida. We had a whole pompano- super moist and flavorful due to it being seasoned from the Inside with lemons garlic cloves and herbs. The yellow fin tuna was perfectly cooked rare as well as the monk fish. We also had their signature Fish and bubbles dish a delicious like seafood pot. We also had the grilled octopus app and the tuna tartar also delicious. We thought the main courses would be more expensive based on the price of the apps $18-25 but they weren’t! The apps are a little larger than the average apps. All in all they have a hit! We will be back many times I am sure!

This new restaurant, in Ft. Lauderdale, is a must for anyone who enjoys fresh fresh fish along with fine service. If you order a whole fish (most of which will serve two) your server will be happy to filet it at your table.

It appears the wine list is still a work in progress while the corkage fee is a steep $30 per bottle. Hopefully, they will address this.

Otherwise, this restaurant comes highly recommended and I urge you to give it a try!

Great service. The place is beautiful. Small but charming and nice presentation of the dishes. Would’ve liked a bigger selection of salads but overall was a very good experience.
