We came here for a family get together. We did have reservation and called ahead to let them we'd be 10 min late and they were like, "no problem". Valet parking once we arrived was great transition. We were graciously greeted by very welcoming staff which is refreshing because many Miami establishments have wait staff that seem to be quite... More

I never write reviews but I feel so ripped off that have to write this one and avoid others this over-priced less than mediocre food restaurant! Terrible service- took an hour to get a pizza for the kids and another 45 minutes for what tasted like boiled noodles with a total of 3 shrimps! The price for the latter "delicacy"... More

This was a nice place to eat, the food was good and the atmosphere suits a fine dining experience. The price range is a bit high but not overly expensive

Went for dinner with hesitation as do not know the area. The valet parking the car set the tone- he was funny and welcoming. Had excellent service for dinner, seafood was all fresh and cooked in innovative ways. Waiter brought us Lemoncello after dinner to help our digestion- for free!

Previously located in Downtown Miami overlooking the Miami River, the historic "Big Fish", is reborn on the banks of the Little River on Biscayne Boulevard and 78th street. The Big Fish is decorated with a tasteful and passionate eye for art. Combining a New York Jazz Club style with an exotic Caribbean style we have created an elegant and inviting ambiance for our guests to relax and enjoy. We welcome customers by boat. The Big Fish has the capacity to accommodate 300 guests. Our establishment is divided into 3 main areas. Outside, one fully covered deck and a lounge area where our guests can enjoy a first class view of the Little River, either at a table by the water or while sipping a delicious cocktail at our outside bar. Also, for those who prefer dinning indoors our dining room offers a cozier and quieter atmosphere with capacity for 25 seated guests and an American Full Bar. The Big Fish also offers a fully covered private area that can be rented for special events. Our "prive" can host 60 seated guests.
