Went there for what was supposed to be my birthday dinner. Had looked at menu ahead and knew what we were ordering. Host was nice. Waiter, not so much. Never bothered to refill our drinks, never checked on us after dropping off our drinks. Never saw him again until after food came out. Never got our appetizer. Person who brought our food (not waiter) tried to take it back. Um no. Waiter tried to blame no appetizer on kitchen, however we believe he did not turn it in. Food was huge disappointment. Tuna was good, but rice had shells in it. Could not eat. Severely disappointing birthday. They did give us free dessert, but I didn’t get what I wanted, which was great food and service.

RumFish Grill has an off day, on Mother’s Day. Disappointing dining experience as I know they can do better as we have experienced on previous dining visits.

Service and food was excellent! Menu had options for everyone in our party (though our concentration was the seafood). Quality (including presentment) and size of portions was commensurate with both menu and daily market prices.

The only criticism was our "table" was half booth, half table chair configuration, which was a bit odd for two dining couples.

We will be back in the future and will recommend RumFish for both business and personal events.

We had a wonderful dinner at Rumfish grill, our waitress was so amazing. i suffer from food allergies but she took time to go through the menu with me so that i could fully enjoy my meal without worry. The food was delicious and the tank was such a fun feature, we were so entertained, I imagine it would keep kids occupied if you wanted to have a nice dinner

Should have went with the sure fire NY Strip steak, but decided since we had just arrived to FLA to get the Grouper. Mai Tai was WAYYYYY too strong, but on any other day, who complains about that? Lol. Loved the aquarium side seating. Beautiful restaurant. Soup and bruschetta bread were awesome.

The atmosphere is everything you would expect from a Guy Harvey restaurant. The aquarium is fantastic along the wall. The back lit menu was a nice touch. However, my wife's didn't light up so I gave her mine. The wait staff obviously saw that one wasn't working but didn't offer to swap it out. I was disappointed in the menu options. Being the flagship location, I was expecting true Florida seafood options. Glaringly absent was Hogfish, Bay Scallops, Redfish, Tripple Tail or even a catch of the day. Grouper and Snapper choices were limited as well. I had the scallops as an appetizer and was disappointed. They weren't prepared well and paired with a very strange combination salad. Kalamata olives do not compliment scallops when there is no seasoning on the scallops. There were some great dishes as well though. The smoked fish dip and ceviche were incredible! I will be back but I will will go with the grouper.

The prices are way to HIGH for what you get. The food is not bad, but you can find comparable food around for a fraction of the price.

Watching the fish swim really creates an entertaining back ground which makes this restaurant worth visiting. The blacken Snapper was very tasty while the Seafood Stew was drowned in a heavy brown broth (even though the waited stated that it was tomato based).

This was a special event for my family of 4. The server we had was really bad. He would just stand around with other bus boys and servers and talk all while we’re waiting to order. We ordered our drinks and appetizers (together) and didn’t get our drinks until right before the appetizers arrived, while he stood around talking. 3 of 4 meals were really good and the one that wasn’t, was very salty and only about 3-4 spoons ate out of it. When we told him, it wasn’t good, he looked at it and responded, “oh ok, I’ll let the cook know”! He didn’t care to offer me another meal or anything to eat. So yeah, I left hungry as hell after not eating all day and paid for a $40 something dollar meal that wasn’t good and I didn’t eat. I was a server for 4 years while in college and you could tell that this guy just had this sense of entitlement because of the amount of the bill. Places like this really need to do a better job of hiring servers that will work for their tip rather than think they’ll get a good tip because the food is expensive. Didn’t ask for a manger, just paid the bill and gave him a $25 tip and left in peace.

Had to send back both our entries because they were undercooked. Price of food appeared to be based on aquarium rather then food. Alcohol drinks overpriced based on similar restaurants in area. Experience did not match reviews.
