Some restaurants do some things right but it is extremely rare to find one that does it all with excellence; Fetishes Fine Dining is that rare find! This small, intimate restaurant is elegant and romantic. The owner and staff are more than attentive, they actually care to make your dining experience special. The food was outstanding! We had Caesar's Salad... More

We celebrated our two year anniversary on a Tuesday night and practically had the place to ourselves. Excellent wine (we had the Inkblot...it is purple and jammy, my two favorite descriptors for wine!) and it paired beautifully with my Steak Diane, prepared tableside, and my husband's filet and crabcake surf n turf. We wanted for nothing the entire evening, drink... More

I checked the trip advisor and was impressed by most comments and the feedback from the management so decided to try Fetishes for dinner I have to say food was good, wine selection is decent and service exceptional but all in all this resturant is over priced and if you like to have a quiet and relaxing dinner, this is...

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Fetishes in St. Pete Beach. Many entrees are prepared table side by the owner, Bruce Caplan, and he is quite the expert! We enjoyed a classic Cesar salad for 2 and bananas foster for dessert - both expertly prepared table side. My husband's entree of veal medallions atop polenta was delicious. I enjoyed... More

I recently dined at Fetishes while on a business trip to the Tampa/St. Petersburg area. Although I'm not highly familiar with the dining market in St. Petersburg area, there seemed to be an abundance of chain restaurants offering conventional dishes that a traveler could find in a number of any other cities. Enter "Fetishes". The restaurant certainly caters to couples... More

Delicious food, wonderful ambiance and attentive service make this the perfect restaurant for a special occasion. We have lived in St Pete for 3 years and never knew it was here. It is small and quiet, actually allowing for conversation at the table without struggling to hear....which is a definite plus. We had the crab cake appetizer and the duck... More

We had not been to St. Pete Beach since Fetishes moved to the new location. Loved the new place! We had the Caeser Salad tableside which was so very good.

these folks pay attention to all the details. they provide a great section of wine, and wonderful food. They do a wonderful lost art of table side service, Steak Diane, Châteaubriand for 2, and others. Quite and intimate dinning experience rarely found in todays large chain based places.
