    Fishbones is one of my favorite places in Lake Mary. Unfortunately our server could not speak above the high volume of the crowd noise and the steaks were over cooked. Not the normal level of service or food quality we have experienced in past visits. Very dissappointed overall. On a high note, the wine specials were outstanding! Overall - I will go for the bar scene and apps, not for dinner. Over priced and over rated. This used to be an awesome place that I truly enjoyed.

    trigger fish has become a favorite of mine and seeing it prepared blackened with some crawfish sauce.........could not wait to try it. It was a toss up and hard decision between it and the sea bass. This automatically causes me to return to try the one I didn't get. Salad being tossed table side is a nice touch. A great home grown chain that maintains quality.

    This was my second time visiting this location. I really want to like this restaurant due to the fact that I love seafood, sushi and wine. And the fact this place has a gorgeous bar and nice outdoor seating is just icing on the cake. The last time I visited I ordered a dish off the menu. It was good but our service was poor and it took forever to get our food. Once we did get it, they delivered our apps and salads at the same time. We couldn't finish it in time before our main course was delivered. During this experience, we got our food timely however our salads and apps were delivered at the exact same time and then our sushi rolls were delivered shortly after. We just felt rushed. Not only that, but the rice on our sushi rolls was all over the plate indicating they were falling apart even before we touched them. We grabbed the first roll and, as predicted, it fell apart. Inside was the tiniest pieces of fish. And I am not exaggerating. It made us feel like if they were going to be stingy with the fish then don't offer the roll to your customers. I'm not one to send food back but the presentation was absolutely awful and given there was so little fish in the roll, we were eating rice and seaweed paper. So I sent it back. The manager came out and comped the meal and had it remade which was very kind. The server then came to the table and said that he would only put food on our table that he would have served to his family. That confused me given the horrible presentation of the sushi. The restaurant tried to make everything right which is nice but this is strike 2. Not sure if I will return for a possible strike 3.

    My partner and I enjoyed our 15th Anniversary dinner at FishBones - Lake Mary last Saturday Night. We arrived about an hour before our reservation to enjoy happy hour on the patio. We enjoyed incredible wood grilled oysters and calamari off of the happy hour menu. Both appetizers were served hot and were full of flavor. We were promptly seated at our dining time, and Katie, our server, took great care of us. She made a recommendation to my partner for a side of the Oscar sauce to go with the prime rib. It was absolutely delicious. I had the New York strip and it was the best NY strip I have ever had. All in all, FishBones provided us with more than a meal; we now have another terrific night to remember.

    The staff greets you and makes you feek welcome good wine list and premium drinks wate staff is also excellent. Unfortunately the food is not very tastey. Starting With good cuts of meet and fish it tastes like cheap oils and ingredients cause the dishes to not work the vegetable side dishes were just horrible. The other sides just okay. Dessert, which looked so good disappointed as well. For the prices charged we expected much better food. The service thoug is great.

    I took my friend to Fishbones for their birthday. We had inside dining reservations for 6:30 p.m., so we went the the Happy Hour on the outside patio prior. Whether outside or inside, it is a wonderful experience. The staff is friendly and attentive and the food and ambiance is really, really wonderful. A very classy place.... You will never go wrong when you go to Fishbones..... be it inside or outside, the experience is wonderful. You definitely will be looking forward to going back again.

    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.

    Dining with a party of 6 with a reservation, no wait, service was excellent. Food was superb. One member in the group was unhappy with his steak as the sauce made it too salty and they immediately took it back and prepared another one for him. The manager came and apologized right away also. Very attentive to customer service. The remaining 5 dishes were excellent-one had the best salmon ever; 2 had excellent steaks; a fish dish was devoured by one member of the party and what can I say about the stuffed shrimp and scallops... the best. All appetizers were fresh and very tasty. A great wine selection and martinis are pretty good too. All in all, a very enjoyable evening with friends and good food. Definitely one of our favorite places.

    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.

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.

    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.
