A Must-Go-To Dining Experience

I love this intimate, soft lit restaurant. It's a very small restaurant (11 tables) with a wine bar, as well as a private room for a party of ten. We found Fetishes 9 years ago and it is a must-go-to dining experience every time we're in St Pete Beach. We were married at the Don Cesar, but have... read more

Need reservations as this is a small restaurant - the service is excellent - great wine selections ( had one of the best Rojas ever) table side service on select dishes - food was wonderful - the entire experience was great - highly recommend this place.

It is tough only providing three stars but what it boils down to is that when you pay top dollar for a meal the service and food should be top knotch..and ours was not. The good: crab cake appetizer and corn-crab bisque were tasty, the table-side Caesar great, the lamb chops excellent and bananas Foster a fine finish. The bad:... More

We live in the area and have visited Fetishes a number of times. Each visit we enjoy very tasty food and great service. In addition to his usual dishes from the kitchen, the owner enjoys serving dishes tableside. I have thoroughly enjoyed the Caesar salad and the Dover sole prepared at the table. However, the other dishes are just as... More

My review almost mirrors the previous review. Table side preparations of the Caesar salad and Steak Diane were fun and resulted in exquisitely good tasting food. The crab dinner is notable although I've had better. Small flaws: the place has a bit of a musty smell when you enter, no full bar service, and although the service was very good,... More

I understand why you penalized us by one star. I know exactly at which table you were seated, which is an advantage, and sometime disadvantage, to our small size. Regarding our being limited to beer and wine, I'm afraid that's the way it is for restaurants of this size in the state of Florida. 150 seats required to sell liquor.... More

I like to respond in some way to all of our reviews. This one, however, makes so little sense that I'm not quite sure what to say.
