Grillfish Restaurant Review

: Dine at the bar or plop down onto banquettes that stretch the length of the restaurant. While popular with tourists, Grillfish has a loyal following of neighborhood regulars. Since it opened in the 1990s, it has expanded, resulting in laid-back double dining rooms each with a bar, one mainly for private events. The menus are posted on huge overhead chalkboards. Start with steamed mussels or clams in garlic wine broth or spicy tomato sauce. Fish from the grill include red snapper, grouper, mahi mahi, salmon, swordfish and Maine lobster plated with corn on the cob and spaghetti for a New England meets Little Italy in South Beach vibe. There’s also steaks and chops with a choice of sauces. For dessert consider mango Key lime pie and brownie sundaes. Wines are divided into fish friendly reds, fish festive sparkling wines and seafood whites, all fairly priced.

Grillfish Miami Beach- insulting, overpriced, disappointing
by laurirose on Mon Dec 29, 2008 11:46 am
Awful experience - we'll never go back. My sister and I went with my mother on Xmas Day, for her birthday. We hoped for a great meal, but got a huge disappointment instead. Ordered grilled grouper fish entrees which we should have sent back: small portions, overcooked & very overpriced. The whole negative experience was NOT fault of server (very friendly, did her best to help), but with woman ID'd to us as Owner - appallingly rude, disrespectful and insulting, after we voiced concerns that menu should specify actual charges when one substitutes any salads for the pasta (which the menu allows but no prices are given.)
