Not good 4/2/2009

It started well with the tuna tar tar, then we ordered a grilled seafood - what we were hoping was a feast - for two ($62). It was bad, dry, a little smelly, and the only decent thing on the platter was a small piece of grilled tuna. Flavorless calamare, tasteless salmon, rubbery prawn, and disgusting Florida and Maine lobster. A little ambitious and really awful. It was served with grilled vegetables - great potato and three strips of ok zuchini. Save your money. Pros: Absolutely heavenly tuna tar tar with avocado Cons: Worst most expensive awful seafood dinner EVER more

Horrible service, adequate food 1/3/2007

I was just there tonight (Wednesday) with my girlfriend and I can't remember the last time I was so badly serviced in a restaurant. Where to start? The hostess had this pessimistic and serious attitude as if we had sinned because we didn't have reservations (the place was two thirds empty). After she gave us a table, it took a long time before the hostess came to pick up the menus, and no waiter had approached us yet. We told her this and after our patience ran out, the manager came to take our orders. A good 20 minutes passed before the manager himself started waiting on us. What was worse is that other Italian guests were being serviced promptly and a lot more courteously than us (We are young well-dressed college-educated Cuban-Americans, just in case you wonder). I hadn't felt so abandoned in a restaurant before. There was a clear preferential treatment with a couple of tables (all Italians) around us who had arrived after us and received their food and everything else way before us. Pros: Ambience, location Cons: Service, average food more

What a view! 11/17/2006

A very romantic place to take a date or someone that has never seen downtown Miami. Go by car or take your boat. Recent improvements to the outdoor eating area has really stepped this place up! There is an excellent assorted grilled seafood dish for two which is a mound of finger licking fish! The staff needs a little better training it took four reminders to get us a bottle of sparkling water to the table. Overlooking that, the entrees were good. Not so sure about the desserts. The tiramisu seemed defrosted. Pros: Amazing views at night! Cons: Staff needs some work but friendly more

This place was great! 3/17/2006

I disagree with all these other reviews, I cannot stop thinking about how wonderful my meal was last Sunday! We arrived at about 10 PM, had a great table, dock side. The waitstaff was slightly clueless, but eager to help. We had the grilled seafood platter for two and it was the freshest, best seafood I have had in a very long time! The platter consisted of lobster, crawfish, calamari, tuna, salmon, shrimp, grilled vegies & roasted potatoes. Wine was good and ambiance was great. Also, we couldn't find the restaurant, so we called and the Matre'D got in his car and found us! They were low on wine choices, and the waitstaff was not spectacular, but the delicious food and location made up for that! Highly reccomended! Pros: Food! Cons: Waitstaff more

Are you coming here to eat or... 4/28/2005

Big Fish on Friday's after 11PM is certianly a fun place to end the night. Beautiful people in late 20s through late 30s go there to dance, have drinks and have fun. However I tried the food once and it sucked. The calamari had absolutely no taste. When I said that to the waiter he said, smiling, Welcome to Big Fish! He did not want to be rude at all, I know what he meant: I can not do anything , this is our food, either you (or me) like it or not. So I did not had a bad day. It was the standard. I had a hot date so did not want to bother but certianly I am not going back to the restaurant anymore. The bar is OK ONLY on Fridays. On Saturdays there is no party so don't bother and go somewhere else. more

Are you kidding me with this service? 3/21/2005

Went to Big Fish on a Sunday night. Made reservations weeks in advance, but was hastily placed at awful table by bumbling manager and waiter (who were fighting in another language - Italian?) even though there were plenty of good seats open by the river. After our 3rd complaint, we were finally moved to table WAY at the end of row of seats where we were totally forgotten and had to walk back into restaurant for bread, then again for drinks, the again for dessert menu then again for check - it was unbelievable. View was very nice, but for the out-of-the-way location and the idiotic service, if you want to see the river, go on your own, take a stroll... then go to eat a good restaurant. The staff was THAT bad. Pros: View Cons: Staff more

    It feels like a Florida Keys seafood shack plunked down in the gritty heart of industrial Miami. The best seats are outside at tables fronting the Miami River or the bar built...
