My husband and I ate at Garcia's two nights ago. I had the grilled yellowtail fillet with sweet plantains. It was my first time having yellowtail and it was simply delicious! Fresh and tasty!

Worst seafood restaurant I have ever been to. The service was slow the food had \nno flavor. It was the worst service ever. I would have been better off going to \nRed Lobster. For everyone who has written a review about this and thinks the \nfood is good then you must be crazy. I ordered a lobster that they claim was 2 \npounds and when I got it, it dident even look like it had a pound to it. My \nmother also ordered the same thing and hers was small. My father ordered a \ndolphin sandwich which was not very good as he says and my grand mother ordered \nthe jumbo shrimp. The shrimps looked no bigger than a quarter and it was only 5 \nof them. The yellow rice had no flavor and it was cold. So were the potatoes. \nOur bill came out to 130 plus. It was NOT worth it. The waiter was also not \nattending to us or anything. I would not recommend to anyone.\n

The food is absolutely delicious and the prices are fair enough. The place is very simple, and I guess the only thing they have to improve is the service.\nIf you are looking for a good place to eat, and you are not looking for fancy, this is it!!!!!

My favorite seafood place! The food is absolutely fresh and delicious. It's true that spanish is the first language there but, as an English only speaker, I have no trouble getting my order in and getting good service. And the staff is very nice. Order the shrimp and I guarantee you've never had shrimp so fresh.

Pros: Fresh Seafood, Food is awesome

Cons: Not enough parking

First, the restaurant is in a rather bad part of town on the river and I would not recommend going there at night. We went during the day and it was ok. Second, my family is latin, but everyone is very tall and very blonde and we were treated pretty badly until we switched to spanish, then it was ok. If you ask any questions to the waiters in english prepare to be ignored. I only got attention when I spoke spanish. I was hoping for great food as we were told it was very good here. It is pretty average, some of the shellfish is ok but overcooked. Everything else we had was terrible, especially the soups and salads. It was not that busy either so no excuse on the bad food. It is cheap, but so is the food.

Pros: Cheap, casual

Cons: Bad neighborhood, not so good food

Im very happy with this place and its worth the visit! looking for good seafood and gumbo. Come here! But I do warn you, it is pricey but once again. Any place inside the loop of a large city. I kinda expect it to be pricey.

Not fancy, but the best fish in Miami. Go on off hours when its not too busy! Also the takeout section for claws is great for a party.

I have been going to this place for years. Best seafood in Miami bar none...As to the guy bellow that says this place has a racial problem, my guess is he is the one that has the problem..there as many Anglos at Garcia's as Hispanics and no place would survive this long if they had a problem with Anglos...there is also a big customer base of local Blacks...so for those thinking of trying it out, do yourself a favor and try it out...I am on my way over there now and was just looking up the address to text to 2 friends that haven't been there before...

Pros: local flavor

Cons: not the greatest neighborhood

The food here is delicious! The seafood is so fresh and the service is fast. I'm of Cuban decent but look American and I'm always confused for an American or should I say a ""Gringo"" because not just Anglos are American. I always speak in English, they have never treated me unfairly. Usually ""Gringos"" walk in there already staring at everyone as if they were aliens because yes mostly everyone who works there is Spanish. You know that Gringo look they give you, as if they are saying this guy better speak English or he should go back where he came from. If you have an open mind and are not that defensive maybe you won't give off those sticking out like a sore thumb vibes. This is an original local foodie hotspot and the food is excellent. If you want a delicious meal guaranteed, this is the place to go.

Pros: Great upper sitting area for drinks after work, REALLY DELICOUS FOOD

Cons: Parking, place is always packed.

We have been going to Garcias for several years, we love the food. But everytime we have ever been there there is always some nasty racial comment because we are not spanish. We happen to be white. Here is one example. This last time was the final straw for us. A family was celebrating a birthday and the gentlemen got up and yelled ""Well at least I am not some stinkin gringo."" I would not recommend this place to anyone who is not spanish. It is a VERY RACIALLY BIASED PLACE. We would never go back or recommend to anyone.

I have been to Garcia's every time I'm in miami and the seafood is good kind of pricey since I live in Texas now and you can get it a little cheaper. I always get the grilled lobster especially when it's lobster season, tryed it once out of season it was not the same. My wife who doesn't like fish really loves the fried whole red snapper, go after lunch when the growd has gone down and you can get a bigger fish for the same price. The fish scrapp tuna is good also with a little hot sauce.

Pros: Grilled lobster when in season

Cons: Parking during lunch time is horrible

I went there for lunch with my boyfriend and immediately knew it would be good because of the amount of people there (and with that many people we were seated immediately). The food was great and there are a several great choices of fresh fish available. Great place for families, dates, business lunches, whatever. The wonderful ambiance helps too. Speaking spanish is almost a must, however.

Pros: riverfront

Great seafood at a reasonable price. The seafood was fresh (sometimes off the boat), and the stonecrab is better than Joe's. Interesting ambiance right on the river, outdoors. Highly recommend Garcia's!\n

Pros: Food, river views, price

Editorial from

Known best by downtown execs, this charmer is a second-generation fishing company turned restaurant. The faded, chipped mural over the retail counter and bar whispers of another era of Miami sea culture. We get the feeling food hasn't…
