“First visit to MoonFish on Valentine's Day:)”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Like you I have read the reviews so I made a reservation for Valentine's Day and had an EXCELLENT experience!

Arrive early if you can, Valet is FREE but parking is limited and busy at times. Had a reservation for 6 pm and we were seated promptly. We were served by Alan and two other servers offering great service.

Very extensive wine list, ordered the Gascon Malbec which was a full bodied red. For $45.00 was a great wine for our steak and fish dinners. A few choices of reds under $75 but a lot of wines listed were $100+. Very happy with the Gascon Malbec!

Dinner we had Filet & Lobster as well as the King of the Bone strip. Both meals were very tasty and cooked very well. The Sushi menu was very extensive and I would recommend a few of the dishes as well.

Overall, EXCELLENT experience and great service! Met Bryan (Manager) during dinner who made sure our meal was up to our standards. Great first time experience, I will be coming back on my next trip to Orlando.

I HIGHLY recommend Moonfish but again, arrive early and use the Valet to park your car!

“Some good points and disappointing points”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Plus: Great appetizers and salads
Negative: Strip mall parking. They provide valet parking. Place a cone on EVERY vacant parking place so you have to give your car to them for parking. Very silly.
Waiter was friendly but incompetent. Kept forgetting our requests. But did provide replacement grouper when first order improperly prepared.
Desserts were huge and all very sweet.
Coffee was atrocious.

“Extremely disappointing”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

I chose Moonfish for a business dinner because of its high ranking on tripadvisor and could not have been more disappointed. Moonfish boasts about the freshness of its fish, our fish was well past its prime and heavily over-salted. Our server seemed intent on one thing; selling us a magnum of an overpriced California Cab, and was slow and inattentive. I will certainly not be going back to Moonfish

“Great surf and turf!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

This was our first time at Moonfish and loved it! We were able to make a reservation through Open Table for Valentine's Day and were sat promptly by the hostess. I ordered the oysters and my husband had a sushi roll for appetizers. Both were great! I order salad quite often and was impressed by the salad that came with the meal. The beets and sesame dressing were original and a refreshing change from the usual house salad or ceasar that usually come with the meal. We both ordered the filet and lobster tail, both cooked perfectly. Anthony our server was very attentive and paced all our food just right! Great experience!

“Let down”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We went to Moonfish b/c of all the great reviews. We were seated and waited 15 minutes with no service. We flagged down a waitress who apologized and informed us management would comp a drink or app. The waiter finally came over and there was no mention of a comped drink or app. The service was HORRIBLE! If I am going pay $40.00 for a steak dinner I expect great service . The waiter threw our salads down and ran to another table. Our steak and pork chop were under cooked and had to be sent back. The food was nothing to write home about. We had such high expectations for dinner, but ultimately feel we threw our money away on terrible service and an underwhelming experience.
