    We’ve been going to La Fisheria for several years (we live out of town and attend events downtown). It’s always been good, but lately they’ve been even more amazing. I love everything, but try their delicious margaritas, calamari, ceviche (several kinds!) and taco sampler. The service is outstanding, too!

    The food was great however the service was off. Waitress kept forgetting about us and had to remind we ordered a second round of drinks and still waited a long time for them. Would have stayed longer if it weren’t for service time. The restaurant only had 3 other tables besides ours

    La Fisheria is a gem of a restaurant that serves authentic Mexican seafood. The ceviche is fresh, tangy, and delicious, with generous portions of mahi mahi and shrimp. The service is attentive, friendly, and fast, making you feel welcome and comfortable. La Fisheria is a great place to enjoy a satisfying meal and a relaxing atmosphere.

    We tried several items on the menu. The Poblano dip was excellent as was the empanadas. The Mrs. had the TAMAL DE ELOTE CON CAMARONES which was beyond delicious. I had the TRIO DE TACO which was also very good with each having its own unique flavor. However, will definitely give it to the Tamal de Elote as the most delicious of what we got. We finished it off with the FLAN DE LA CASA which was also very nice. We enjoyed our visit and look forward to coming back again. Also, the names above are capitalized since I copied and pasted them from their online menu. Thought it might look odd so figured I'd mention it. Not an AI review or Bot . :D

    We had drinks and appetizers. House Margarita very yummy, good HH price. Aguachile ceviche very tasty as well as the atún! Salsa that came with chips was very good/spicy. We were there early 5:30-6:30, so not crowded/loud. Service was great. Parking available in lot next door $10. Otherwise take your chance at finding one on street. Enjoyed the experience. Would go back.

    Had the Mezcalrita (the burnt orange garnish was a great finishing touch), Trio of Ceviche, and Tamal de Elote Con Camarones (excellent sweet corn tamales with shrimp, bacon and creamy sauce). Creamy Cinnamon sugar churros presented to celebrate our anniversary topped the night. We savored everything. Paula was our excellent server. Thanks for an enjoyable dinner!

    La Fisheria is a great local restaurant. The fish and seafood are always fresh. We tried the trio ceviche appetizer. It was excellent. The service was great. We were greeted immediately and shown to our table. The waitress was attentive but not hovering. The meals we ordered were good sized portions. The hot food arrived hot; it was freshly prepared and not microwaved or sitting under a heat lamp. All of us needed to go containers because we couldn't finish them. This was my fourth time at La Fisheria. I have not been disappointed in any of my visits.

    I gave service a poor rating because of the extremely long waits for our appetizer (30-40 minutes) and equally long for the meals we ordered (there were just two of us). The waitstaff were courteous and friendly. We ordered a dip as an appetizer immediately after the waitress came to our table. In the meantime, another couple was seated at the next table and ordered. They received their dinners and were almost finished when our appetizer finally arrived. We were on our THIRD basket of chips and salsa. We will NEVER go there again!

    Good food, bad service. The branzino was big enough for us to share, but it was brought to the table while we were only halfway through the entree, which was a large, but very one-note ceviche. The waitress was only intermittently on the floor. One appetizer, one entree, and two glasses of tea came to $90. The entree was great, but the value was not as great. The room was very noisy and the air conditioning wasn't up to the current unusually high temperatures. We were unlucky enough to be at a table where the late afternoon sun blinded me every time the door was opened and when the sun got to the window over the door.

    We had reservations for 6:00 and were just a bit late. They seated us no problem. We got drinks and we all ordered off of the HRW menu, which was unexpected as I had forgotten all about that. We got the drinks and apps very quickly. And then waited an hour for the main entrée. We were going to a show at 8 and had to rush to eat that and the deserts. Then we asked to split the check 2 of us on one and then 1 individual. She split it in fourths and then gave the 2, 75% of the check and the other 25%. The apps were amazing, as was the fish. The tamale I wouldn't order again.
