    Everything was fantastic. They have really stepped up service and quality since my last visit. We had the fish special, shrimp tempora sushi, wedge salad, crab cake & king of the bone. Again, everything was great will go back again and try more seafood and the prime rib looked great too. I personally had the king of the bone, which is a bone in strip, Pittsburg rare - it was solid and noteworthy.

    I thimk Fishbones Resturant in Lake Mary is overrated and not nearly what it once was. I much prefer Charleys (in the same chain), Flemings and Christners all located in the Metro Orlando area. Fishbones is certainly not a fine dining resturant and the prices are awfully high considering what you get. The steaks were ok a but not great, (mine came out medium rare perfectly cooked, but my wifes came out undercooked rare. While we both ordered the 12 oz filet, my steak was much smaller than hers - markedly so. Consequently mine was cooked correctly and hers much undercooked. It took 12 minutes to get her steak back. No pun intended, but I have a very bad taste in my mouth thinking about our 30th anniversary dining experience at Fishbones.

    Don't worry! The food is as good as always. However, the service was very slow. Maybe it was a good thing, because we were able to spend quality time talking with our friends. The meal took about 2.5 hours to complete. The most disturbing news was that Fishbone's no longer has Red Velvet Cake on the menu. This was shocking news, but I determined it may be best for me and you to complain to the manager. It was one of the more popular desserts on the menu. Best thing to do is complain and see if they will bring it back. Great opportunity for Talk of the Town to send out a broadcast email announcing its return. I finally got over the news, without slitting my wrist because I was full anyway. Still one of my favorite restaurants in Orlando.

    We took our daughter out to dinner for college parents weekend. Open Table noted it was our first visit and the manager brought over a free appetizer. The filet mignon topped with shrimp and lump crab was spectacular. the service was attentive. Can't wait to come back. Jim was a great server!

    One word description of the service, ambience, food....flawless. If you love the one you are with, take her here. You'll both be talking about "that dinner" for quite some time. Only problem, no way to top this dining experience so I'm a little worried I set the bar too high for any other place around. So, pretty much have to come back!

    The seafood here is just absolutely fabulous. It is one place where you get what you pay for and I mean that in a good way. It's always my choice for special occasions. I had the Black Grouper and my girlfriend has the Chilean Sea Bass. I would like to try a steak there sometime, but the seafood is just too good to pass up.

    My husband and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary at Fishbones. We had a early dinner so it wasn't crowed or noisy. We could actually enjoy our intimate conversation. Our waiters name was Chris. He was very kind and patient. Another kind gentleman ( didn't catch his name ) came to our table and gave us a very tasty appetizer and cookies. It was the perfect dinner and the food was amazing! We will return to Fishbones and recommend it to friends.

Our service was very nice and gave us suggestions and we felt like he took time with us and cared that our dining service was an excellent experience. We plan on returning lots of times for our date nights.

    We were there on Thursday night. We were seated promptly. It was abnormally hot and we were seated inside near the patio bar. It smelled horribly like cigarettes. My pork chop was over cooked and so was the veggies. The orzo was greasy. The calamari was awesome. The service was great but the total experience due to the food prep was sub par. We might try again but I would prefer to go to Vito's across town.

    If you like steaks, do yourself a favor and try the prime rib. I went for a t-bone after reviewing the menu, and my mother got the prime rib, and while my steak was perfection, the prime rib was out of this world. They serve it unlike anywhere I've ever tried: blackened on a hard wood plank. The flavors were amazing and it might be one of the top 3 steaks I've had in my life. Otherwise, everything was spot on. Our server Allen was exceptional and they surprised us with a appetizer of "tuna nachos" which is really just a perfect serving of shashimi tuna on a nori chip. Small detail, but it made a wonderful night even better.

    Bottom line: the servers were attentive but the meal was terrible. The food was overly seasoned (loads of salt and butter) yet bland and over cooked. I have never seen steamed veggies served so limp even though they were just peeled (carrots) and cut into quarters (carrots and zucchini). I had the mahi mahi and my husband had shrimp. The kitschy marine decor should have been a giveaway for what was to come. If you like bad diner cuisine this is the place to come get it in some style. However the place needs a spin on Restaurant impossible to save it soon. I am sorry we went.

    As soon as we were seated, our waiter (by accident) spilled two glasses of water on my husband and other guest. We were moved to a different table. The food was the saltiest meal I have ever had, I have eaten at Fishbones before and never experienced this, even with the same menu item. This was mentioned to the waiter who said he would let the the chef know ..... Really? Water on my husband and an oversalted dinner and nothing to compensate .... Two days later I am still tasting all the salt ..... Will not be going back for a long time! At those prices I would expect more!

    Service was terrible - many missing items, appetizer was never delivered, server not checking back to verify everything was ok which it was not. Multiple entrees arrived undercooked and cold. Manager did not take appropriate actions to rectify or compensate for terrible experience throughout the evening, despite our table's politeness and tact. Did not seem to care. Do not go to this restaurant - there are much better choices at this price point within the area and in the greater Orlando area. Probably explains why on a Saturday night the restaurant was less than 25% full. Many other restaurants on OpenTable did not even have availability on the same evening, so the calendar isn't the reason. Can't see this place surviving much longer.

    Our most recent trip to Bonefish was as good as ever. The food is excellent. Everything we had was fresh and delicious. The service was great. Rachel took very good care of the three of us, which includes our 8 year old daughter, a real "foodie". They offer a children's menu, which is very nice. The shrimp cocktail, clam chowder and the lobster bisque were fabulous. The entrees, which included steak, fish and shrimp were delectable. And the house salad is very unique. The room is lovely, and the entire experience was memorable. Bonefish is not cheap, but the food and ambiance, as well as the service make it a place we go to for a special dinner. We will continue to dine there when we can.

    We had dinner at FishBones to celebrate our Anniversary. First time we visited this restaurant and our experience was awesome. We had Macadamia Crusted Florida Gulf Mahi Mahi and that was worth the money! We had a fabulous time and will definitely go back again. If anything negative, we would like to have a more romantic atmosphere for our night. The light tend to more of the cold side (bluish), instead of to a warm color. The pictures taken missed the yellow/red warm color, and our faces looked cold - and that is not a memory you want to have of your Anniversary :-)

It was chewy! Brought it home for my dog. Shrimp are flattened and over breaded. Poor quality of food. Very disappointed. Not the way to celebrate a special evening. Steak.
