Overcooked fish at Mision 19 and La Caza Club, do I need to specify how I want fish cooked?

I had dinner 3X in the last couple months at Mision 19 and ordered fish the 3X I was there. The first 2X the fish was cooked perfectly. It would flake with the touch of the fork. Last week I went to La Caza Club after hearing about it and looked promising. I wanted to change things up and try somewhere new. I went with a group of people and 3 of us ordered fish. The fish was overcooked for everyone. It was bone dry and when you split the fish, the middle of the fish was blaring hot and steam was coming from it. This was not what I wanted since I was trying to sell a friend on the TJ dining scene. I told him it's typically not like this. So, I brushed the fish experience off. Then last night I had dinner at Mision 19 and ordered the fish along with my friend. Both pieces were over cooked. I had mentioned to her my experience at La Caza Club and how disappointed I was. And even said, I wonder if I have to specify how to cook a piece of fish. Do they assume I want it well done if I don't say anything? It wasn't a tuna steak or anything. Every time I ordered fish it was whitefish. I don't think you have to specify how to cook whitefish. It isn't a steak type of fish. Am I missing something?
