The food is absolutely phenomenal and I can see why two of their dishes are iconic Houston dishes!

Great appetizers, we ordered the seafood soup (vuelve a la vida) and it was ok but I wouldn’t order it again. The guavarita was way too sweet for our taste and We couldn’t perceive the tequila in it. The service from one of the waitress needs improvement but it was not bad.

The service is very good - kind and attentive at all times. The food is also excellent. The fish is cooked perfectly and paired with masterfully steamed vegetables. I come back here regularly.

I had been wanting to try this place for a long time. Went for lunch date one day. The service was horrible. Had to ask multiple times for tea refills. Anything we asked for took way too long to bring. Server didn’t know the menu. The food was decent, but for the price, I expected much better.

The staff was slammed even though the restaurant was not packed. Photos look great and food descriptions are good, but the meal was less than satisfying. A tamale was just a big blob of dough and the seafood 'soup' was a broth with ingredients still in their shells (how do you pull a crab out to shell it at the table?) . At least the restaurant didn't charge for the untouched soup. Music was way too loud drowning out any attempt at a conversation. Sigh.....

Mexican soul food with emphasis on seafood, unique and delicious. Initial service was good but entrees took a while and we got someone else's credit card (neighboring table...we just swapped). I will return as their food is so great, price range is good, and it's close to the theaters.

Bar was great. Enjoyed Antonio the bartender.

Had made reservations for6:00. They tried to seat us right at the entry by all the foot traffic coming in. Asked for different table, put us as far in back as they could, where we were almost forgotten.

Quacamole appetizer was very good. Salads came out with entree, so didn’t get to enjoy that since entree was getting cold
Food was ok nothing special. We had 3 people at a tabletop, it was so small we hardly had room for plates and drinks.

Had seen a lot of good reviews, but it was just an ok dining experience.

We got there early, 5:30 so seated immediately. It was still quiet. Got our drinks fast and the were fantastic. Ordered appetizers, got the trio ceviche and the guacamole. Both were excellent. The ceviche was very fresh and bright with all the citrus flavors. Guacamole was a perfect mix and seasoned well, I loved the fried pork rinds in it. It was an unexpected and very pleasant flavor combination. We shared the chef’s special red snapper. It was a huge slab of the best and freshest tasting fish I’ve had in a long time. We got it grilled, with the sides it was more than we could finish. We did eat all the fish though. I would absolutely recommend and will definitely go back.

Romantic Valentines Day dinner for our first time eating at La Fisheria. I had sampled the food before as a news photographer so I already knew what to expect. The food we selected from the specially prepared menu was fantastic! Ceviche, empanadas, shrimp tamales and chocolate cake were superb! We even tried the special mixed drinks featured and those were good, as well. Romantic music was played nearby that wasn’t overbearing or too loud to talk over. The ambience was perfect and the service exceptional. We had a room booked at Hotel ICON with dancing and drinks at Etro Lounge. With everything in walking distance, it turned out to be a perfect evening! We will definitely be back to explore more of the menu at La Fisheria!

Took a while to get served in spite of light traffic. Food was very good tasting and satisfying once it came.
Would have preferred thicker tortilla chips for substantive guacamole, instead of very thin ones that easily broke!

You serve handmade tortillas only 3 small ones with an $80 plate for 2; that is okay, but $3 up charge for extra tortillas; came across as chintzy and cheap! Irritating!

Happy hour until 6:00 p.m. advertised on signs posted at entrance was not honored! Bad impression for 1st time diners here.

Music did not go with visit on Valentine's Day OR with restaurant food and ambience.

All told and in spite of shortcomings would give this place another chance!

Great food in this brightly colored place! Went with some friends to celebrate a birthday and we pretty much ordered the same thing. The mojitos were very good. The poblano dip was very creamy and surprisingly green but so bomb! Ok so let’s talk calamari! The rings were so soft and the panko batter was seasoned to perfection! The crunch was superb! The shrimp empanadas were so wonderful packed with large pieces of shrimp. I think they were on a spread of black beans and topped with a mixed green salad! The tamale was so good y’all! The corn was so sweet but the shrimp and ground pork provided a savory aspect to it. It had to be my favorite dish from there. We got there late and it was closing and they stayed until we did and gave us a round of FREE SHOTS! Definitely a great time. I will be back to try more. Thank you so much for the experience!
