They offer a pretty basic seafood menu and prices were mid-ranged so thought we'd give it a shot but it turned out to be a big mistake. We started with 2 mojitos, sent them both back, it tasted like it was made with a store bought pre-mix. We ordered a bottle of white wine instead, which was also terrible with a twist off cap. Both of our entrees were terrible, even the corn on the cob that came with the fish was terrible.

Our waitress was very nice and didn't charge us for the returned mojitos and one of the entrees. After partying at the Delano we stopped for a slice of pizza on the way back to the hotel.

Really, this is not a good restaurant at all, not even worth giving it a shot, you will surely be disappointed.

Pros: Waitress

Cons: Everything Else

Someone working in our hotel told us to go here. It was decent, but not as good as I had hoped, especially given the price and the upscale location. My fish was overcooked and the sauce was so-so. The person I was eating with felt the same. I could probably be persuaded to try this place again.

the service was attentive from the minute we walked in, relaxed wait service, friendly and helpful. the menu is straight forward and basic. we started out with some of their specialty cocktails and my cucumber mint martini was fantastic - i had to have 2 it was not too sweet not too strong, refreshing the way you always hope a mojito will be but all the bars end up adding too much sugar.
the first sign that the dinner would be good was the waiter telling us the specials and adding that they were out of grouper b/c it was not up to par today. fish unlike chicken or meat has to be purchased fresh and very often so it SHOULD be seasonal to ensure freshness. my boyfriends salad was delicous and my fried calamari was decadent -- not chewy, fresh soft and in a light batter that was fresh and perfectly friend.
not a fish eater my boyfriend got chicken which he said was good - but this place is know for fish so that is what you should get. my tilapia was excellent, i am a new york food snob and this was some of the freshest fish i have had. the true test of a restaurant is how they make simple food - like grilled fish. the sauce was good but i did not even use it. the portions were big and came with sides so nothing additional needed to be ordered.
we were too full for desert but it looked really good.
all in all a really great dinner. i highly recommend it.
my boyfriend and i went there on a monday off season so the place was empty

Pros: amazing fish

Cons: none to speak of

walked in & was seated in about 0.2 seconds by what appeared to be the owner. he was very friendly, as was most of the waiting staff, very attentive & presentable as well. food was excellent (try the sweet onion sauce on any fish!) and so was the dessert. prices cannot be beat anywhere else on the beach for such quality. overall great experience & would definetly recommend.

Grillfish is probably one of the better seafood restaurants in Miami Beach, but that is not saying much. About the best thing on the menu is Stone crab claws which will save you a 2 hour wait down the street.

None of the dishes stood out. It's not that anything was terrible, it's just that I've had much better seafood in land-locked cities such as Atlanta and Chicago. Being this close to the ocean, I was hoping for something more.

If you want fresh exceptional seafood in Miami Beach, go out for sushi at one of the many good sushi bars in the area.

We had a rehearsal dinner for 70 people and Grillfish could not have performed better than they did. It was a superb party, thanks to Grillfish. We highly recommend it for a private party.

Myself and my girl-friend were on a short vacation on South Beach from Jan 14 to Jan 18th. We visited this restaurant for a dinner on Monday Jan 17th. We were waited upon by a nice charming lady, named ALLISON.

Please permit me to say, in all these 4 days, Grillfish was the best restaurant we visited in South Beach, food-wise, service-wise, and even price-wise. The Billing system was good, (No SoBe attitude!) the menu was good, the recommended wine was excellent, and the waitress, charming and professional.

Hats off to and my deepest kudos to Allison the waitress. I'd definitely recommend this place !!

Pros: Cute waiters!

I was surprised this place wasn't jammed packed. Surely the food would warrant a long line.With so many fine places to choose from maybe I'll just be happy that I didn't have to wait to sample their marvelous menu. The shrimp scampi is the BEST I've ever had. Chef Tony of Baltimore would probably smack me if he heard me say that. I should say that whatever you choose will surely please you. I have been to other hot spots in Miami Beach but this will always be one I come back to. Great food and no (B)SoBe attitude.

The food here is fabulous and you get more for your money than at other SoBe restaurants. Entrees come with two side dishes and a huge starter salad. The seafood was fresh and delicious and the desserts were fabulous. After the meal we were given a coupon for $10 off our next lunch there.

This is the one place I will have to go to each time I visit Miami. In my second consecutive year back, the food and service was as great as I remember....so good my boyfriend asked if we could eat there another night!

Found this place on citysearch, and it was even better than expected. Our waiter was charming and helpful, the seafood was fresh and perfectly cooked and we couldn't resist the desserts.

Went with a friend who swears he hates fish but ordered it anyway. After cleaning his plate, declared his meal "the best fish I've ever eaten". Great food, reasonable prices, attentive wait staff. Nice casual atmosphere. Good place to bring a gang of friends before heading out for an evening.

Adorable waiters hustle divine creations to your table as you relax in old church pews in a neo-EuroTrash setting, with blackwashed concrete-block walls. Pricing is reasonable for the incredible food you'll enjoy here: most entrees are $13-$20, including salad or precisely-cooked pasta. The Barterders know how to blend your favorite concoction just the way you like it. Choose how you'd like your fish cooked -- the menu recommends medium-rare for best flavor and texture... it was refreshing to be able to order mine rare, which is even more moist and delicious! Sauces and complements are carefully created and perfectly-spiced. Salmon Piccata and Blackened Tuna are divine! Grillfish doesn't hold back on the goodies...if you want the Arugula with Goat's Cheese salad with sweet dressing, they'll glady provide. It doesn't get much better. Kudos to our fine waiter, Jason, who was the spitting image of Val Kilmer. Do not miss Grillfish!
