Went for an early dinner before a Heats game. It was great! The oysters were a little disappointing. The smoked fish and crab cakes were excellent! I would 100% recommend this place for any seafood lover.

My husband and I were visiting from out of town, and this ended up being our favorite dinner spot. The food was delicious (we had the mango salad, soft cornbread, crab cake with krab noodles, and key lime pie - YUM), the atmosphere was laidback and unpretentious, and the service was excellent. We'll definitely come back!

Oysters were delicious. The fish fried was a very good surprise. Very tasty!
Us being gluten free had no issues since almost all options were gluten free. The pineapple creme brule was gluten free and very good!
Monica was a very helpful server. Decor very nice too. We will come back.

For the most part, seafood was worth the hype and delivered on freshness & flavor – but then the price was revealed. Stone crabs typically go for $20 per pound when they come in frozen packages, and from my understanding, even when fresh caught the cost shouldn't exceed $50. We paid a staggering $120 for a tiny amount of stone crab and it wasn't made clear to us on the menu or noted by the server.

The hostess graciously seated us when we arrived half an hour early for our 7 p.m. reservation, but our unsmiling waiter didn't seem to understand that we wanted to enjoy a round of cocktails prior to ordering appetizers. While the seafood in the "full tackle" was cold and delicious, the portions were skimpy for the $100 cost. The appetizer and entree were served at the same time. The mango in the salad was more firm than sweet and it was overwhelmed by the candied pecans. The dry, barely warm pumpkin ravioli obliterated the bay scallops. All in all, an unmemorable dining experience.

Stiltsvile Fish Bar did not disappoint! The atmosphere and food were amazing. The place was hustling and very busy so the service was a bit slow but we were not in a hurry. Justin our waiter was the OG and very knowledgable with the dishes. The manager was a active and helped out a lot. I would strongly recommend a night out with the significant other at this place. Well worth the spend!

I never write reviews. But the awful experience here compels me to do so. We came with a party of six on Jan 1 for 8:30 pm reservation. At 8:55 we were seated. We asked what fish is the daily catch. The waiter said it’s sold out. We asked about the whole fish. Sold out. We asked about the tuna. sold out. We asked about the shrimp. sold out. Did I mention this is a FISH restaurant. Management made no effort to inform us they were out of all fish while we waited almost half an hour. They showed total indifference about the embarrassing reality that they literally had no fish. Finally they offered grouper collars, an act of desperation from the kitchen, which the waiter could not have described in a less appetizing way. The manager said “I’m sorry, we couldn’t get fish today.” Which begs the question of why they didn’t buy sufficient amounts of what they are supposed to specialize in on Dec 30 or 31? And don’t say fish would not have been fresh as we all know it’s flash freezed and the restaurant could have keep it fresh and safe for 24 hours. Basically the entire experience ranks as among the worst I’ve had. All they had to do was show some genuine remorse, offer a round of drinks, or discount on the crab cakes, or anything to show that they realized they needed to step up and prioritize customer service. Bottom line is the fish may be good when they have it but any restaurant that treats customers as we were by tree ayes is not one that deserves support.

They were out of a lot of popular dishes (including the entire whole fish section) and every service member seemed frazzled and very junior. Would be hard to recommend

The reason for 3 star is the fact that our reservation was not honored. We arrived at 8:35 for 8:30 reservation. We were told our table would be ready soon. We noticed many people waiting. Eventually, we were offered seating at the bar. Seems we never had a table despite our reservation being made far in advance. We were lied to essentially. A gesture of apology might have been nice. Our waitress in the bar area was excellent and food as well. Unfortunately not likely to go back as there are many choices on the beach.

The Food was excellent and really extremely good. The service was horrible though. Ordered the New Years food and drink menu, but the waiter was late with all the drinks and forgot some of them. I understand it’s a messy night, but you could do better.

I’ve been there before a number of times and loved it so wasn’t worried when I recommended it to my friends who were vacationing w us in Miami. The appetizers were great as always. For main, we ordered the red snapper grilled - whole fish. They brought it full first and then took it back to Devine. When it came back it looked mooshed. As if it had fallen off and was then put back on plate, and it was super dry. So basically mooshed like mashed potatoes and dry. Not at all how one expects a grilled whole fish. Have had it before there and it was great but this time a major disappointing fail. Given number of restaurants in Miami, will not be returning here while I vacation there in the future.

Had a great night at Stiltsville with my daughter & granddaughter. Kids menu was good to have. Our server was so sweet & helpful. The menu had so much to offer- snapper was fresh and cooked perfectly- stone crabs were sweet and delectable - so happy they were all cracked for us! I definitely would recommend this place. The ambiance was lively and everyone appeared happy to be there. Right amount of noise to have a feeling of happiness had by all!

We had been to the restaurant for drinks and appetizers previously and were looking forward to our dinner. We had a 9:30 reservation. After we were seated our waiter came by and without a “welcome” told us that the kitchen was closing soon and we needed to hurry to get our order placed. When we inquired about the fresh fish options for which the restaurant is known he told us that there was only one, Red Snapper, but that we couldn’t order it because of the time. Meanwhile, 20 minutes after we placed our order, other servers took multiple whole fish to the kitchen for cooking. The food we had was okay but not what we had expected. We also were supposed to receive an Open Table free appetizer which we only received after multiple requests. At the end of the dinner that appetizer was on our bill further adding to a very disappointing experience.

Good ambiance and interesting menu, though lackluster food and overwhelmed, inexperienced server ultimately tipped the scales.
