Fabulous food

The place is not upscale....but the food is. I like the smell, the taste and the quality of the food. The service is very good. I will go back for sure.

Quaint, homey feel. Deck overlooking the river with a view of yachts. Food was really good. The fish was delicious and there were many options.

Garcia's offers fresh seafood and a full bar. The meal was excellent, the service efficient and friendly, inexpensive public parking a half block away.

should correspond. The place is like a offshoot of a fish market and since they are a fish wholesaler the retail prices should be a little friendlier. My wife had a great tuna in a sweet soy and ginger sauce. Presentation was nice. I had a slab of grouper on a plate no visual presentataion. We ended with a mango/guava... More

We saw this restaurant on a TV show and decided to try it when we were in Miami. We were very impressed. The place serves high-end food but in a casual, easy-going atmosphere. Everything we ate was absolutely delicious, and we will definitely go back if we are in the area again. My one caution would be that they do... More

This place has changed thru the years. Food has become average and seafood market doesn't sell you stone crabs. I've been coming here since I was a kid and the last 3 trips have been nothing more than overcooked, favorless food. If you are looking for a better experience, go next door to Casablanca and let the tourists have Garcia's.

Read about this fish market restaurant and it did not disappoint! We were advised to come early on a Saturday night as they don't take reservations for less than four! We were quickly seated on the upstairs deck and really enjoyed the boats going by on the Miami River. The server was very helpful and attentive. The grouper was great... More

The first thing is that this is a restaurant in a fish market. Therefore, service and accommodation far from ideal. But if objective is to try seafood at the river, then go there. I think there is a climate of former Miami. Great crabs,drinks or beer, forget the wine.
