    The waitress was a little bit scattered brained. We had been to the restaurant on Monday and had fabulous service. Last night was horrible much less when I wanted to order the pan seared chicken I was surprised by the waitress response that you were out. No mention of any specials that were being served. I mentioned it was a special evening as we were celebrating our 44th Anniversary. I felt rushed by the waitress. Maybe she had a bad day however, no reason to make my night unpleasant.

    The food was great. My wife had the scallops and I had a Ribeye. The ribeye wasn’t exceptional but was good the scallops were fantastic. Ambiance was fantastic and kept my daughter entertained. Value isn’t there it’s expensive but it’s an experience that’s unique and inflation has hit everywhere . We knew this when going but others seemed surprised setting at tables around us and also please read the menu before ordering and ask questions. I heard several other tables who were surprised with the flavor of their meal when it came out but the menu stated it.

    Restaurant and aquarium are nice. The server was great. Our bill was over $50. My husband’s dinner literally came with 4 shrimp and two oysters. I ordered a crab dip. We both had water to drink. My husband was violently sick all night. Definitely won’t be back, prices are also outrageous for the amount of food given.

    I made " reservations" almost TWO months in advance for my son's birthday and requested to be by the aquarium glass. When we arrived I asked the hostess about my reservation and completely understood if we needed to wait for the next available table by the aquarium, she had a table ready that was close but not directly by it. When I asked about waiting she said" oh those tables are for 5 people or more ( we were only 4 lol) aaand those are "reserved". Here I thought we had reservations? Then no more than 5 minutes later she sat TWO people at the glass aquarium. SO RUDE. Our waitress was "fake" friendly. The food servings were tiny, super duper over priced and honestly nothing special, which I was prepared for but the service, I was definitely not and it was unacceptable. The place is ran by kids and the adult manager didn't even have the decency to come over and greet us when it was obvious there was a problem. So disappointing.

    The $17. “Cauliflower Steak” was nothing more than a small piece of steamed cauliflower, not seared, not seasoned. No bread for the table till after we finished our meal. Server not too friendly

    They first sat us in a very high traffic area where my husband got pushed And nudged many times- this was a special dinner for his birthday which we told the hostess and server- It took a couple of complaints, then finally a request to move before they moved us to a booth- there were plenty of open tables thought out there evening. Not sure why that space was even used, other then to give a server a table- Tina was our original server, very sweet.

    Server was not very attentive and our soup got served without spoons. They’ve achieved an upscale atmosphere but the value of food and service is not quite to the same level.

    JOEY DA FISH was amazing, the experience, the description by Joey, the actual food, the tank, the fish, everything was amazing. The calamari was to die for, so fresh and crispy, the catch of the day, the mashed potatoes, the catch of the day was amazing, the tank is super cool. The drinks were so cool and nothing like we have had. This is A MUST!!!!!!!!!

    To waitress didn’t treat us right i guess because we where Spanish. She didn’t treat us same way as others, especially i told her that i want my souvenir glass and she ask me if i want her to trow the ice, she just trow the ice and put the dirty glass in the bag she didn’t wrap right as with other guests.

    This was our first time eating at RumFish. It wasn’t my first choice but couldn’t get reservations at our favorite “go to” seafood spot. After checking out the website, we decided to give it a try. We had to walk past the bar, which had live music and was pretty rowdy and loud. We then had to walk through a gift shop, which had me thinking we had made a mistake. We got to the hostess station and were warmly greeted and quickly seated. The entire west wall of the restaurant is an aquarium. It is gorgeous. The lighting is great with the blue hue of the aquarium. Beautiful fish (some 50 lbs and up) swim peacefully. Our server was attentive, our drinks and appetizers were out quickly. The food was outstanding. In short, this place scores high for ambience, excellent service, delicious food and moderate prices (not cheap but worth the extra). We will definitely eat here again.

    Seriously overpriced for what you get. $32 for a small 5-oz filet and some potatoes? Really? No salad or veggie...cuz those are extra. The small ciabetta dinner rolls were hard like hockey pucks. The rib eye was grissly and too expensive and served without a steak knife. The crab bisque was tasty, but was served lukewarm and without a spoon. The ceviche was great, but was served with supper plain crostini. The beef skewers were very good. The scallops were delicious, but there were only 4 of them! Simply way too overpriced for the hype. Atmosphere was lovely; huge fish tank was fun!

    Nice restaurant. It Surprised us how good it was. The Restaurant has a different vibe from other places in the location. Service was outstanding. The restaurant wasn’t very busy and we got seated right away. Which was perfect. Really nice food, outstanding presentation and quality. Had the fillet steak and scallops. Had some oysters also. I thought they were small for the price. But the calamari was really nice. Nice spicy dipping sauce. We did find it a Little expensive. $125 for-two with 2 glasses of wine. Our server was very attentive and we never needed anything. 10 out of 10. Maddie was her name. Great change from the beach vibe restaurants around. We will go back for sure.

    Great service (waiter was awesome). Atmosphere was really nice. Food was good-not great. Lobster Mac and ceviche were good - ceviche was a bit spicy so watch out if you don’t like a little heat. Disappointed with the shrimp skewer - expected larger shrimp bit the “gulf shrimp” were pretty small. Overall experience was good - did have good wine!!!

    We made a reservation around 3PM on Saturday night of Labor Day weekend. We were ale to reservice 9:30 surprisingly. We got there at 8:30 to have a drink first and we were seated right away. Pleasant surprise. :-) The server himself was fantastic. The only issue we had was the initial drink order took forever. We had barely had any of it when our food came. I had the scallops and my friend had the swordfish. Absolutely delicious!! Will go again soon!
