    Eaten there twice. Food is just okay and both times the service was poor. Maybe it is because I am alone? Nothing worse on a business trip than eating alone and having poor service and okay food. But, I am in Sarasota every week and it is close to the Hampton and I will probably go back next week.

    Madfish has great food and service. The "Drunken Lobster Bisque" is always an exceptional soup. The rest of the menu is great and reasonably priced. We often use Madfish for lunch meetings.

    modest ambiance, good service, nice wine list, seafood fresh and nicely prepared, side dishes boring, prices definitely higher than expected

    very good food. I especially enjoy the sign at the door, "Please turn off your cell phones". Too many people feel it is their right to talk on their cell phones in a restaurant and the other diners need to listen to their conversations! We will definitely go back.

    This was our first visit to Madfish Grill. We loved the menu and were really looking forward to the meal. Upon entering, we thought it had a great atmosphere, so check! Then, we had prompt service and (warm!) bread with a lovely olive oil combination, so check again! And, then, our waiter recommended the tenderloin tips with mushrooms over pasta (a special that night). Three people in our party ordered that dish. I had the Chicken with Macadamia. The people who ordered the special were not pleased -- the meat was tough, too many noodles, even tough noodles! The Chicken was just OK. I may try this restaurant again for lunch, based on the many different enticing menu items. But, I will not be back for dinner any time soon! P.S. Service was very good.

    My husband and I went there for an early dinner, so were pleased to see a discounted menu offered. The menu is eclectic, ranging from the Madfish version of pad thai to fish & chips to steak. Our food overall was OK, but nothing special to warrant a trip unless in the neighborhood already. Service was attentive, but the screaming kids nearby spoiled the ambience for us.
