What a wonderful dinner. Window seats gave us a great view of the Intercoastal.
Aziz and his serving partner(sorry, I have forgotten the lovely lady's name) were exceptional.

Had a dinner with the family. It is a gorges water view from the second floor but that's about it. The service started promptly with the description of the specials and delivery of the bread and drinks after that we were forgotten. When we ordered the food it took about 30 minutes before my soggy, tasteless "Fisheries Salad" came in. Then the main dishes were brought in. My wife's dish "Seared Diver Scallops" were not that good (overcooked), asparagus was limp and not crunchy. My seafood medley "Fruits of the Sea" was just terrible; overcooked, over salted and drowned in some ketchupy tasting source. The other members of the party ordered "Pan-Roasted Grouper " and "Miso Glazed Roasted Sea Bass ", they claimed it was ok. Did not stay to taste the desert. In my view it is subpar overpriced establishment to be avoided.

Old FL feel is right. We were upstairs in the "nice" section, the carpets were musty and the table was so slanted I had to keep my drink across from me. I am from Florida but live in Boston, so I KNOW good seafood and am not price shocked if the food is worth it. This place was not even close to good for what we paid. It took a solid 15 minutes to get up to valet to get inside. The hostess was rude, must have also been the same one on the phone that told us there were no openings but then were able to simultaneously book with no problem on Open Table (multiple times showing). The crab cakes were a shredded, over breaded, under seasoned mess. The Rock shrimp salad had two, if that, cut up pieces of shrimp, atop limp, brown edged iceberg, unripe strawberries and it was drowning in dressing. My snapper was great, but it was a VERY small piece of fish - totally underwhelming. My date got the salmon, which was also nicely done, but the accompanying plate of carrot mashed potatoes and the maple glazed whatever, was sticky, overly sweet and just gross. We were very disappointed.

15th. Street Fisheries is located right on the water - what a lovely setting. This restaurant serves meals "up" and "down" stairs. The downstairs restaurant is a much more casual setting, people were in jeans, shorts etc, noise volume much louder, there was fun live music playing and the overall setting was more hectic.
The upstairs restaurant is much quieter, there are white table cloths on the tables and I suspect the menu prices are more expensive. The plus of upstairs is it is quiet and one can have a nice table conversation with a group, family or couples. The menu was varied and the food was very good. The wait staff was very attentive. It was a lovely way to enjoy an evening in Ft. Lauderdale with good company, sipping wine watching the large yachts go by as we ate delicious seafood. An added perk-- we took a water taxi to / from our Hotel.

Celebrated our 45th anniversary. The waiter ambros and his assistant marie were so helpful with our food selection and of course with that anniversary pix. Clinch soup, and huge scallops and my husband’s prime rib were delicious. And as an anniversary present from the chef we received a delicious treat (respberey sorbet is delicious)

We highly recommend this restaurant

We dined upstairs which is much more dining then downstairs which is more bar scene.
The kitchen was certainly off that night. Our main meals arrived and despite the plate being hot (do they microwave their food?? Probably!!!)
All of our food arrived cold. One dish (a Chilean se bass)was sent back a second time and didn’t arrive until 25 minutes later when everyone else had finished and it ended up being bland.
The waiters did their best and were very pleasant but were certainly handicapped by a poorly managed kitchen.
Lots of other places to spend your money.

We found out about 15th Street from a petal boat ride that stopped there for drinks. We liked it so much we came back a few days later for our 30th birthdays dinner and had an amazing time. The servers and bartenders made us feel at home. The scenery was awesome with the dock lights showing big ol fish in the harbor. We will definitely be back

The food and ambiance of 15th st is great. The service was terrible. We had a table of 8. When a waiter knows there is automatic 20% tip u tend to get ignored. At least @ this dinner. We had to stop him for everything little thing! To clear the plates, get water, ask a question, get another drink! He actually said, “I’m busy!” He never stopped once to see if everything was ok. Fortunately the manager Kevin was great and adjusted our bill accordingly! But I would recommend 15th st. Great food, great location

Wonderful setting on the inter-coastal. I've been there twice and the service
is very good. My last meal was good-not great. I had the conch chowder and
it was fantastic! The entree-not so much. Two separate servers suggested the
special-a breaded flounder. Frankly it left a lot to be desired. Tasted like
something you'd get at Red Lobster. Heavily breaded and tasteless. My date
had scallops and was happy with her meal. I'd be happy to go back but I'll
be a little skeptical about the "specials".

Went out for a good meal at a nice restaurant. It was just OK. On the good side, Great view and ambiance. My wife has Celiac's and has to eat Gluten Free. They fed her safely. On the bad side, inattentive service we had to keep asking for water. It was an early reservation - 6:15PM so it wasn't busy, but service was hidden. Foos was just ok and for the price I expected much, much better. I would have been better off eating at home or at Carrabbas as far as the taste of the food.

We went on St. patricks day to celebrate my mothers birthday. We had a large party in the upstairs level of the restaurant. This area had a tastefully rustic look with views to the water and tarpon feeding by the guests. The food was delicious and the salmon , grouper, and filet mignon are recommended. The service was outstanding! Our server, chris, was friendly, upbeat, attentive, and very patient and professional with our large party. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
