Everything was excellent! We were in Miami Beach three nights and had dinner here twice. (The other night we went to Macchialina on the recommendation of our bartender, which was also excellent). The food was outstanding and the people were even better. Couldn’t recommend this place enough!

Rude hostess who literally just looked agape at us, a blank stare and no communication whatsoever - no “welcome”, no “can I help you?” or even the hint of a smile. When I said I had a reservation for two she just grabbed two menus and started walking toward a table. Our waiter was certainly more friendly than she, though I had to remind him that the reservation was supposed to include an appetizer (something that was most likely a responsibility of the horrible hostess) and although I’d noted this was a special occasion, my friend’s birthday, there was no acknowledgement of such. We aren’t sure if perhaps our darker skin made the staff feel ill at ease but given we’re both friendly girls who don’t usually have any trouble getting along with anyone, we couldn’t help but think our appearance made an impact in what was otherwise an extremely Caucasian environment. Unfortunately what was supposed to be a special evening out turned out to be a very disappointing experience. Even the food which we had so looked forward to seemed tainted by the overall experience and we just did not enjoy it.

Food was rather heavy, tables were so close together you basically dined with your neighbors. Service was terrible, our waitress made a mistake and rather than apologizing she had serious attitude issues and chose to ignore our table. Didn’t even bother getting dessert even though we would have had she handled the situation better.

Food was absolutely amazing. Really enjoyed the local grilled fish. Amongst the best we ever had. Unfortunately, service was very poor. Took ages to get our order taken and then not all the food arrived. But what did come was really excellent.

We enjoyed Stiltsville. The smoked fish dip was very good as were the crab cakes. The crab mafalda dinner was excellent. Our server was attentive, friendly, and made great menu suggestions. We will go back here.

What a great restaurant! From the moment we walked in, we were warmly greeted and given a great table. Our server was friendly, attentive and even gave us a brief history of Stiltsville when he learned this was our first visit. The drink recommendations he gave were spot on.

Now, the food... fresh seafood with original and unique flavors and combinations. We came on a Wednesday and the place was rocking, but everything was smooth and well organized. We spoke briefly with the owner as he also originally hails from NY.

I highly advise giving this place a shot. It’s a little out of the way as it’s on the west side but that’s probably why it’s so good... not your average Sobe tourist trap.

We were early, sound level was good, service was attentive. Later it was more hectic and noisy. Comfortable ambience, many families early evening. Justin the manager was circulating, affable. Both shrimp appetizers were super. The speciality crispy whole fish was snapper; presentation was entertaining, the fish cooked just right. Be aware, though, that while the raw fish looks large, the meat on a 1.75 lb snapper is less than a typical whole branzino. Larger fish are available.

The food and service was not consistent with reviews read. Despite making a reservation a month ahead of time we were sat in the bar area. At 7:15, they ran out of the fish of the day. The ceviche appetizer could not have more than an ounce of fish. Apparently snapper is the new caviar. I ordered a tuna steak, it was sliced like nuggets. A steak should be a slab of meat. Enough ranting. It was not terrible, i was just expecting more.

It was good. Did not like the scallops and ravioli. The scallops were tiny tiny. Shrimp and grits were very good. Waiter was good. Just very busy but we enjoyed him.

We went for Happy Hour, and we were very happy! Every dish was excellent and beautifully presented. Our favorites were the buffalo fish wings, watermelon salad, oysters, and shrimp cocktail. The complimentary fish dip (thank you Open Table) was delicious!

We will recommend and return!

Great food and great service. The seating is a bit tight, though—we were in a high top by the bar and people were pushing by us and generally in our personal space all night. If they could take out some of the tables it would be perfect.

A gift was prepaid & left for us we didn’t know because it was brought over after we’d ordered the same bottle of champagne & they said it was from me... My name was in the reservation so it was a little bizarre but ok. The other couple said they too ordered Champagne & it was on them, so we just thought they paid for a bottle on a seperate tab & that was it.
Then the venue is very casual & the prices are not. The portions are very small. I felt bad because in a party of 4, 2 people were facing the wall like punished schoolchildren.
Not impressed, not returning.

We made reservations drove from Homestead was there an hour and a half and the manager came over to our table and asked us if they gave us a drink would we give up our table. Will never be back drove an hour to be asked to leave because people are waiting on tables to sit down. Well be more organized on your tables and your reservations. Tell people to make reservations like I did!

Great place with amazing experience!
Maybe the only comment was that: waiter wanted to appear more than clients.
Anyway, apart of that, it is a great place with amazing atmosphere!

We went to the Fish Bar on Valentine's Day and each had the $68 special. The appetizer's were ehhh okay. The ceviche was not a good combination of flavors and the coconut shrimp had way too much breading, so much that the inner layers of breading (which was noodles) were raw. But, the dinner main course was delicious. We absolutely loved the spoon bread and the whole fish yellowtail prepared in two ways was excellent. Dessert was also lovely.
