We went for the early bird dinner (4-5 pm) to enjoy the gourmet take at a budget price. Wasn't disappointed! Had the drunken Cuban shrimp appetizer, which was flavorful and fresh. Our entree of blackened prime rib with sides was excellent. Great place without attitude. Owner came by tables to check on diners, obvious they care about the entire dining... More

Seating outside and nice music. Service was good. :Beer and wine only". Oyster Rockefeller was good. A bit on the very small side as far as the Oyster goes. I had the Chilean Sea Bass, very good! The seafood soup and the Trio seafood pasta was very good as well. Desserts were good. I just want to make one small... More

My husband and I came here on our last night vacationing in St. Pete, we were expecting a casual vibe- but as we entered the romantically lit restaurant, we noticed it was a bit more upscale than we had thought, which was a nice surprise. We started with the garlic shrimp appetizer as shown in my attached pic, and it... More

We came to Mad Fish on recommendation from the Don Cesar and did not have reservations. Reservations are a very good idea however our wait was not very long at all. The... More

The restaurant staff were very welcoming and the place tastefully decorated the table lighting at eye level was much to bright. Zoe our waiter was very enthusiastic and helped us with the menu but my partners grouper encrusted in lobster was very dry.On the other hand my sea bass was excellent.

Hi Sparky Sam Thank you for leaving us a review at Mad Fish. We are thrilled that your Sea Bass was excellent, we are very proud of this dish, and that you liked the décor of the restaurant. We do keep the lighting pretty low to make for a comfortable dining experience so we aren't sure how it was much... More
