Fetishes Fine Dining is a long established, fine dining destination that has achieved international recognition for its excellent cuisine and award winning wine list during 17 years in the same location. Enjoy an intimate dining experience, with candlelight and white linen, in an 8 table dining room.

For a restaurant that has been written about favorably it was disappointing. The food was good but not exceptional but the service was very poor. A lady seated us in the back room (we had a large group) and virtually ignored us the entire evening. None of us will return and we are locals. I suspect they cater the hotels... More

I can't seem to place your table in my mind, which we are almost always able to do given our small size. It's difficult to go all the way back to April, here during August, to figure out what may have gone wrong with your table that night. I'm not able to find a table, with a local phone number,...

Bruce, the owner, knows & sees to every detail of the restaurant. He ensures you receive outstanding service and food. His tableside cooking is a lost art which he brings back to life. I ALWAYS get the Steak Diane cooked tableside. Nothing beats it! The prices, IMO, are priced accordingly. Fetishes is a fine dining establishment, second to none!

Thank you so much for your kind words. We appreciate your support and your accolades, as we need all that attention, given the small fine dining market out here on the beach. The masses definitely prefer the seafood houses that feed hundreds of people nightly and our small but extremely loyal following is what keeps us going. Thanks again. See... More

The best restaurant in St. Pete Beach. The food it's delicious, the presentation its pristine and the service stands out for sure. The place it's very unique, charming and calm.

I've been to many restaurants in and around Tampa and I think I'm putting this one on the top of the list! Great food, great wine-list, great service - loved our evening there... The crab-cakes may have been the best I've ever had. If you go, same a little room for the table side flambé - Bananas Foster was perfect.

This is our favorite spot at the beach for celebrating special occasions, like a 55th birthday like we did recently. Bruce and Jen always take such good care of us.

We love this place for many reasons. It's small, clean and personal with crisp white linens on the tables and a proprietor/host who aims to please. We love the table side preparations- especially the Cesar salad. The early bird dining menu is a super value. The small bar is a great place to stop at for a glass of wine... More

Don't let the outside fool you. If you want personalized service with fine dining prepared table side that's not in a hotel, this is the place.

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 celebrated our... More
