First time visit for 2 foodies visiting Orlando. Our waiter Sean was incredible and made great recommendations for drinks, appetizers and main meal and service couldn't have been better. Rarely write review or recommendation but Moonfish is not to be missed!

“Fantastic Dinner! Had to go back for happy hour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

We made reservation for a Sunday night, the place was booming with business. There was a bit of mixup with our drink order that wasnt completely resolved, but the waitress was nice, attentive and informative. I ordered the Corvina and my husband had the steak, and although mine was good, the wood fired smokiness and melt-in your-mouth texture of the steak was to die for. We had sushi for appetizers that were tasty, with a slight spin on traditional sushi.
The service and food was so good that we decided to go back a couple of days later for happy hour. We were not dissapointed. We both had the fruit infused martinis, a deal at $4 a drink, plenty of oysters as that is a treat for us living on the praries, tuna tacos, and a few rolls of sushi. We topped things off with dessert, these are meant to be shared as it is a huge piece of cake.
Location was great, close to our hotel which was near Disney. Glad we decided to gamble and try this place out.
I will absolutely be recommending this place to my friends and family when they go to Orlando.

“Lived Up to the Trip Advisor Rating!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

As with most of my dining experiences while I am traveling, I trust the recommendations of this site to lead me to great dining locations. Wonderful dinner. Great atmosphere and prompt service. I sat at the bar during the hectic happy hour and still had great service. I had the triggerfish covered with lobster mousse and green beans. Excellent. The fish serving was large and very fresh. Highly recommended,

“Excellent recovery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

What an excellent recovery. We had eaten here previously and found the service and food excellent. We decided to try again with my daughter and son in law. The waitress seemed to have too many tables. She pushed for our appetizer order before our dinner order (mistake). We gave her it. We waited for a long time for our drinks and mine had obviously been in the cocktail shaker with ice for a while. It was colored water by the time it got to me. My son in laws shrimp turned up 15 mins after the rest of the group and just before his dinner. 5 of us had perfect food. Again my son in laws main course was all wrong. The Manager apologized and took the price of the our son in laws meal off the bill. He seemed genuine. We saw one other table complain. Having said all that we will go back but maybe not with extra guests until we can be sure they get it right next time.
