Seafood
From table-side steak cuts and a world-class wine cellar. To a decadent raw bar and expertly-crafted cocktails. MoonFish is still Orlando’s finest steak and seafood restaurant. The family-operated, locally-owned fish out of water on Restaurant Row.

And with a revamped and more versatile menu, our commitment to the city and the neighborhood is more lively than ever. With new, exciting options and the addition of two classic sides to any entrée, we’re ready to make everyday a special occasion - and bring a casual, natural approach to fine dining and fresh seafood. It’s a return to the basics and the essence of quality, sustainability and perfectly executed cooking over open flame.

This is where the fire meets the sea. And where we’d love to meet you for dinner and drinks, any night of the week.

    I felt there were more steak options than fish choices. The steaks that were ordered in our group were a best fair. Have had better steaks at lower end restaurant chains. The service was outstanding, I was just not impressed with the food.

    Not the same MoonFish as in the past. Very inconsistent on the food. Almost as if the grill was too hot. Charred on the outside and raw on the inside. When you charge what they charge, no excuse for that.

    Oh no don’t go. I was looking forward to a nice fish dinner. We chose MoonFish because it was in an area we liked. When we walked in past the incredible door the thoughts of a good meal plunged. The SMELL, like an old dishrag that keeps being used but never washed. I wanted to flee but I persuaded myself that it was the real whole grouper they displayed at the check-in area. We were seated, both of us wavering about leaving and when the waiter came I asked about the smell and he was unaware. So, I again persuaded myself that it was a combination of fish and the wood burning grill. We started with calamari. My husband did not care for the sauce that was served and asked for tartar sauce. It took over 15 minutes to arrive! Now the calamari was cold. The waiter took our order, pork chops for me, medium,no salt or grilling spices please, green beans and fries with truffles: my husband fillet medium rare, asparagus, and mashed potatoes. Neither of us wanted fish due to the crazy odor and chances that it might be rotting fish. So we stuck with the meat. After taking our order the waiter brought us a freshly fired calamari, nice gesture but we were saving room for the main event. What an event it was. Pork chop so overdone that I could barely cut it. Over salted and full of the grilling spice, the veg was asparagus and mashed potato. My husband got the right side but had a costly filet that was medium to well. I told the waiter about the veg mistakes and he brought me the fries but no green beans. I wish I could say that it was busy and the waiter was overwhelmed, but that wasn’t the case. He actually was very nice and realized the mistakes and gave my husband a free dessert - that saved his tip. I do feel that this is a very poorly run restaurant. The kitchen staff are doing what they want and not paying attention to the orders. Yes you could say that we should have returned the food, but, I just wanted out of there

    Didn't honor our reservation, because they were "busy, so sat for 1/2 hour waiting. Then the food was cold and when brought to the attention of our server, said she would fix it and didn't come back.

    Love the restaurant! Consider it one of the top ten seafood restaurants in the USA. Fresh fish only. We travel extensively and have eaten across the globe; I love Mamas in Maui, and place Moonfish in that esteemed category. Great variety on the menu and use of local products. A lot of restaurants have good seafood but Moonfish excels!

    Overall a very nice place. Food was great. We ordered drinks at the bar and then they called us to the table. Then they couldn't find our drinks. Server was very nice, but she seemed a little lost. I heard her say that it was her day off to another customer. Will definitely be back though as those are minor things.

    The food was outstanding. Our waiter was one of the best me and my wife has had. His recommendations was excellent. The hostess was not cordial. She did not give eye contact or offer any greeting at all. Now I must mention that this was Valentine day. And our reservation was set for 10 pm. But we was seated about 35 minutes later. My problem was that they could not give us an estimated time. That was my only negative of my experience.

    Their payment system is electronic. $70.00 worth of drinks were added to our bill without us knowing it until after paying and requesting a receipt. Electronic system is ok for one check per table. But if multiple checks per table, it’s not a great system. No privacy on giving tip - waiter stands there and watches you.

    The char-grilled oysters and filet mignon were great as usual. The waiter was attentive. The only disappointment was the fact that our son never received his soft drink or ice cream from the cheese burger entree we selected off the children’s menu for him. Usually the manager comes around with those delicious brownies wrapped with the TOTT label by the end of the meal which they didn’t this evening.
