    The food and service were really good. I expected a nicer feel to the restaurant for the prices. My chair was wobbly and the lights were too bright for dinner. I felt like I was in a taqueria. The ceviche however was some of the best I’ve ever tasted. My drink in the other hand was not good. Staff is very nice and attentive though. I would definitely go back for the ceviche.

    I’ve wanted to try this place for several years. I thought it was a small little restaurant, but it’s actually spacious inside with great decor. Felt like we were sitting in a resort by the sea. Food was soooo fresh. Not weighed down by butter & sauces. Ceviche was perfect. The branzino was so fresh. Octopus chips were so savory. Very clean & healthy food, which I like. The jalapeño margarita was small but yummy. I’ll definitely come again to try more!

    Nice little place. Food was presented nicely but nothing outstanding by way of flavor. There was only one other table occupied when we arrived, but I had to ask the bartender to send our waitress on two occasions. She was at a back table on her cell phone.

    We came here for some great seafood and La Fisheria didn’t disappoint. We were genuinely surprised it wasn’t busier. Our only criticism is that the cocktails were too sweet.

    Food was excellent and it came out quickly. Drink service was unacceptable. It was hard to get water refills and the bar service was very slow. We could only get one drink and never got the second drink we ordered. Would have had a few more if we could get one.

    In church today, we were discussing last nights meal and how we HAVE to go back and try more dishes. Delicious! Parking at $20 seems pretty ridiculous … especially since we were there exactly 1 hour. But if we can get cheaper parking … we will be back soon!

    I came here for a birthday dinner for a total of 11 people and truly had a wonderful experience! I made a reservation a week in advance and they were able to comfortably accommodate us when I had additions to our reservation. Our waitress, Ana was fantastic! She made sure were comfortable and that the food and drinks were all good. Which they were! We enjoyed the food so much we returned days later for another evening dinner. Definitely recommend trying out this place!

    Food was ok. The service was lacking. Took to long to get our order in. They bring out the spiciest sauce and no water. We sat for quite a bit with no water. Just lacking. However, I believe in second chances, I may try them out again but haven’t made up my mind yet.

    The food is fantastic - delicious ceviches!! Only downside is there is a slight sewer smell throughout the restaurant that really effects the ambiance. I’d still go back though.
