“Great food/service very good/expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Food was wonderful and service was better then average for Miami Beach (found service throughout stay to be a bit lacking, server here was good). Food/atmosphere was good. Expensive dinner.

“Best Seafood on Ocean Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

This was our second visit to Fish Called Avalon, and it was even better than we remembered the first. We got it in to South Beach in the evening and dined at 9:30 (moving our reservation back from 9:00 by phone). Since it was quite windy that night, we chose to eat indoors rather than on the porch. All tables were full. We loved the atmosphere inside – very stylish although a bit loud – better than outside. What sets FCA apart from all the other restaurants lining Ocean Drive is the fact that they do not have or need a barker or tease out front trying to lure in customers. Their good name and great food does it all. My macadamia encrusted snapper and my wife’s mahi mahi were both wonderful as was the calamari to start. When choosing where to dine on OD, this must be your first choice. That is, unless you like two beer bottles in a margarita glass, and then I cannot help you.

“a great romantic setting and fantastic meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

I eat out alot and have to say this was as good as I have had in a while.
The night before I kind of got gouged and this restaurant was so nice, great view, guitar music in the background, nice waiter and incredible food, from the bang bang shrimp apetizer to the seafood my friend and I had to the creme bruele desert
Wow would go back in a minute

“Great Sea Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Best sea food on the strip hands down! I stayed in the hotel next door and was recommended by the staff. I'm glad they did

“Good food but price not worth it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

Service and food were good but after visiting other restaurants I realized the price wasn't worth it. For two meals, no apps or dessert and two drinks it was $150.
