Worst seafood restaurant I have ever been to. The service was slow the food had
no flavor. It was the worst service ever. I would have been better off going to
Red Lobster. For everyone who has written a review about this and thinks the
food is good then you must be crazy. I ordered a lobster that they claim was 2
pounds and when I got it, it dident even look like it had a pound to it. My
mother also ordered the same thing and hers was small. My father ordered a
dolphin sandwich which was not very good as he says and my grand mother ordered
the jumbo shrimp. The shrimps looked no bigger than a quarter and it was only 5
of them. The yellow rice had no flavor and it was cold. So were the potatoes.
Our bill came out to 130 plus. It was NOT worth it. The waiter was also not
attending to us or anything. I would not recommend to anyone.

The food is absolutely delicious and the prices are fair enough. The place is very simple, and I guess the only thing they have to improve is the service.
If you are looking for a good place to eat, and you are not looking for fancy, this is it!!!!!

My favorite seafood place! The food is absolutely fresh and delicious. It's true that spanish is the first language there but, as an English only speaker, I have no trouble getting my order in and getting good service. And the staff is very nice. Order the shrimp and I guarantee you've never had shrimp so fresh.

First, the restaurant is in a rather bad part of town on the river and I would not recommend going there at night. We went during the day and it was ok. Second, my family is latin, but everyone is very tall and very blonde and we were treated pretty badly until we switched to spanish, then it was ok. If you ask any questions to the waiters in english prepare to be ignored. I only got attention when I spoke spanish. I was hoping for great food as we were told it was very good here. It is pretty average, some of the shellfish is ok but overcooked. Everything else we had was terrible, especially the soups and salads. It was not that busy either so no excuse on the bad food. It is cheap, but so is the food.

I have been going to this place for years. Best seafood in Miami bar none...As to the guy bellow that says this place has a racial problem, my guess is he is the one that has the problem..there as many Anglos at Garcia's as Hispanics and no place would survive this long if they had a problem with Anglos...there is also a big customer base of local Blacks...so for those thinking of trying it out, do yourself a favor and try it out...I am on my way over there now and was just looking up the address to text to 2 friends that haven't been there before...

I have been to Garcia's every time I'm in miami and the seafood is good kind of pricey since I live in Texas now and you can get it a little cheaper. I always get the grilled lobster especially when it's lobster season, tryed it once out of season it was not the same. My wife who doesn't like fish really loves the fried whole red snapper, go after lunch when the growd has gone down and you can get a bigger fish for the same price. The fish scrapp tuna is good also with a little hot sauce.

I went there for lunch with my boyfriend and immediately knew it would be good because of the amount of people there (and with that many people we were seated immediately). The food was great and there are a several great choices of fresh fish available. Great place for families, dates, business lunches, whatever. The wonderful ambiance helps too. Speaking spanish is almost a must, however.
