The seating was perfect as far as a view is concerned; however, the chair cushions could be more comfortable though. The servers made very little talk, I wished I would had more help in making a selection or substitutions. The menu selection is unique and straightforward. We ordered a fair amount of fish and some of the prongs needed cleaning, one whole prong was completely raw. The quality of the food is high but it needs to be handled better. I would recommend the red snapper, coffee and dessert (chocolate moose and the tiramisu).

Food was delicious, and the service was incredible. A bit pricey, but worth it.

Music got a bit loud as the evening progressed, but not loud enough to have to complain.

The branzino was excellent
The waiter was terrible
Could not enjoy the meal as he took the plates before we were finished
Felt rushed
Reset the table and reached over the plate as we were eating
I just moved into Reach building. Took friends who had never been there.
It was unfortunate experience

Disaster. Menu changes created awful food. Branzino parmigiana was inedible; gnocchi with Manila clams, awful. Took carponata off menu and replaced with “ Bok Choi”, Italian restaurant??

The manager, Armando, totally agreed with us, sympathized, and “ comped” the meal. Very professional and smart.

We will not return until menu is restored to an Italian seafood restaurant.

A great dinner at Pesce. I had the fish and chips which was tender and so delicious. As the main course, I tried the "Carbonara di mare" which was very flavor. The wine selection was great with very reasonable prices and very friendly service.

Got to know they also do Miami spice, will be back and try more delicious dishes.

This restaurant has several sections: Pizza, Meat, Fish and a general food area. Ate in Fish area with a business contact.

It was interesting that you could not add say chicken or fish to a an already prepared meal for an added cost. If you wanted both you would have to get two plates and pay full price on both.

Also very odd, 18% gratuity was added automatically for a party of two.

Frankly I find this not appropriate as this is an 'earned fee' and not an automatic one as well as the amount to be giving if at all.

Fish food plate that I had was good.

Overall, I would not put this section of the restaurant on the top of my list.

Found a hair in my food that was clearly not my own. Manager did not apologize and said it wasn’t the fault of the cook staff since they all wear hair caps. The waitress was trying to sell us on the menu to run up the check because gratuity is included. Not a great experience.

Went to dinner on a Sunday night. Fewer people but nice to be able to carry on a conversation. Octopus appetizer was very tasty with grilled octopus on a bed of fennel. One of our guests said that the snapper was among the best that they have had. Lobster ravioli, salmon and branzino were likewise excellent. Service was very efficient. Would definitely go there again.

Food and service was great! We also enjoyed the nautical ambiance. The whole La Centrale complex is amazing with three levels and different types of Italian menus, from pasta to seafood to meats.
We went to Pesce, the fish specialty restaurant and really enjoyed the experience.
I would recommend to friends and family for a nice evening out. Also not to be missed is the wine tasting bar on the third floor.
I will definitely be back! Bellisimo!
Ciao!

Dinner at Pesce, no a good experience at all.
The food was so salty that we had to send it three times back. Server was so overwhelmed that never engaged with us. No manager presence to apologize for the super salty food. Been in the Meat restaurant and it was amazing, but the this one, really bad. Hope you improve it.

It was a $95 brunch (drinks included for 2h) felt rushed the whole time. They were cleaning up stations while we were still eating. We had been there for only 1.5 h and did not want to serve another glass. When I did the reservation (through open table) did not know was a buffet style brunch. Will not recommend for brunch, but probably a la carte because food was good

The marketplace concept of La Centrale and its multiple dining options is both fun and compelling. Pesce, the seafood restaurant, is a long, fairly narrow room just off the “main square.” My experience was mixed. Our waitress was delightful yet scattered, mixing up the order and bringing one wrong starter (which I ate anyway, not wanting to delay my fellow diners any longer). The food overall was quite tasty and well executed, in the traditional flavor-rich, simple Italian manner. The room is loud....full stop. I guess we Miamians co wider loud restaurants to be de rigeur. Don’t come here for a cozy chat over dinner.

Horrible experience! Once we were seated which was fairly quick, the waiter Ana eBay the table twice only to tell us he’ll be with us shorty. No water, no drinks to hold off, nothing. He proceeds to clean up the table next to us and we asked him if he can help us. He said he’d be with us in a minute. He then goes to help another table at which point we said we are leaving and he said “great thank you have a nice day”!
