Diner Reviews
  • "We had a fantastic experience. From the time we walked in, until we left, everything was exceptional. Zach, our server, did an outstanding job of explaining the menu, making suggestions and did it all with a sense of humor. My husband had the scallops and shrimp and I had the triggerfish. From first bite until the last was the best we've had in years. We live about four hours away and I can't wait to return."

  • "The food and service was excellent when we went on March 28th. We went back on April 11th and there was a big difference in the food. We brought in a large party and there was no comparison with the food. Even the salad left much to be desired. I'm not sure WHAT happened but the first night everything was exceptionally delicious."

  • "Food was good. Everyone at our table ordered fish and enjoyed it. One person ordered a steak cooked medium and it was raw, had to be sent back. The second time around was perfect, and enjoyed! We all commented on the vegetables being too firm."

  • "We have visited before and really enjoyed so went out of our way to go again. Unfortunately not the same results. Overall food and service were fine but when we received the bill felt like we had been taken advantage of. My spouse ordered two cocktails but asked they be made without liquor because she was driving. They charged us the full price ($9.00each) even though there was no liquor. House salad and potatoes were include with my entrée and the waiter said I could upgrade to a different salad which I did and the bill included full price for the upgraded salad ($10.95). The waiter offered the potato selection of baked, fries or blue cheese mashed. I choose the blue cheese mashed and when I received the bill it was $2.50 extra."

  • "Fantastic service and they really care about their customers! Excellent food! To receive sushi on our 25th wedding anniversary made our night even more special! So nice of them to do! Definitely, my favorite restaurant! Our server Crystal was amazing! Of all the visits we have made to fishbones, this was by far the most enjoyable!"

  • "We have been going to Fish Bones since 1995 when they opened the first one by I Drive. The Lake Mary Restaurant is now closer to our current home, and one if not our favorite. Our meal was perfect and the celebration was memorable and as usual they deliver what they promise."

  • "Jay was an attentive, intelligent server. The food was terrific. Pricing was a bit high on all items. There is a nice ambience to the place and the seating arrangement gave each dining group sufficient space."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner for our 39th anniversary. We started out on the patio for drinks and an appetizer. The Ginger pear martini was delicious and the bang bang shrimp was some of the best I ever ate. Our steaks were like butter and practically melted in your mouth. All I all it was a very memorable evening. Also, our waiter was a delight."

  • "Had dinner there for my husband's birthday, where service with Reilly was impeccable and everything arrived made to perfection. We love the amuse served as a special touch, and servers are always ready with suggestions. Great go-to for our special occasions...and when we're just craving a really great steak!"

  • "I was looking for something different for my birthday and one of the girls at work recommended this place. We had a superb experiance, food was awsome, we went to the Lake Mary location. The best part of the experience was the service, service was immaculate! It was our first time and our server navigated around the menu like a GPS system, he knew everything and the menu has a large selection. The manager walked over a couple times to check on us and the prices were reasonable! It was a Wonderful birthday gift and I will definitely be going back."

  • "If you're looking for something different to do after work, Fishbones is a nice change. Whether you're interested in drinks for happy hour, fresh sushi, or a full course meal, this location fits the bill."

  • "A group of 4 of us went for dinner. We tried sitting in the bar area to take advantage of the Happy hour specials but it was crowded and extremely loud. Only table left was near the band. We chose to dine inside where we had a nice table in a quiet area. Service was great and prompt. All the appetizers and fish entrees we had were good, especially the calamari. The only complaint at the table was my husband's steak was a little over cooked, otherwise he was pleased with the quality of the filet. We will definitely return because there are more items on the menu to try. They are bit on the pricey side for a quick meal after work, but is a nice restaurant for a quality meal with friends, a date or just to be away from the rush of life."

  • "FishBones was a very nice place to spend an evening after a week of hectic traveling. Our waiter, Alan was terrific and his recommendations for food and wine spot on for our tastes. The entire staff was very attentive to our every needs. The food was prepared as ordered and served appropriately. No bones about it; a very nice dining experience."

  • "I didn't have a great experience. It seemed things weren't running as smooth. A lot of small service mistakes. Forgot my bernaise sauce, by the time I got it the food was cold. Forgot little forks for escargot - had to wait for them. Served me before my girlfriend. Hard to get refills. The salads were so dry we had to ask for more dressings. Main course was ok. - food was good at best. What really got me was the condition of the men's room. The cold water lever did not work and the other sink had a drip. The manager came over. But my girlfriend wouldn't let me complain. I used to visit more, but value for price paid has gone down I feel. I have had several experiences like this so I don't visit that often anymore."

We were promptly seated and our assigned server,Guy, was friendly, efficient, and catered to all our needs without being intrusive. The evening was fun and the food was delicious as always. This was another great experience at FishBones."

  • "Beautiful restaurant, with an unorganized staff with sub par service and experience. Our appetizers, crab cakes and oyster were great! Our salad and entrees (my shrimp were not jumbo and were SWIMMING IN BUTTER) were not. Our server was so overwhelmed and non existent that it took forever to get beverages or order our meh meal. Not sure if we would venture back to here."

  • "If you have tried stone crabs at Joe's in South Beach, then do not bother here. I made a $70 mistake and ordered them as an apetizer. The meat was stuck to the shell and the quality was just not there. The salmon was OK, a little greasy and the food was cold. Service was pleasant and attentive."

  • "We were a party of ten celebrating two birthdays. We had excellent service and felt very welcome. I would recommend this to small or large groups. The food is always prepared and presented in a way that was to everyone's liken. The only complaint that anyone had was the chicken breast was a little over cooked. Everything else was excellent."

  • "Food quality and preparation were exceptional. For that reason alone, we will go back. The wine list was quite acceptable. Our waitress was quite competent, but probably had too many tables. The noise level in the dining area was more than energetic, it drowned out most attempts at conversation with our out of town guests. These last two matters put a negative spin on what could have been an exceptional evening."

  • "My husband had requested Fishbones for his birthday and as I had not had a great experience the last time dining there I was a bit hesitant. Six of us dined there this week and without doubt all agreed it was the last visit for all. When we were seated the hostess announced to our table that the waiter assigned to us had yet to arrive, why she felt she had to tell us, who knows. He ended up being the only positive in an otherwise horrendous meal. Food prepared incorrectly, forgotten sides, lobster like mush and not prepared to order and the list goes on. While the manager did try and correct, the second time out two of the meals that were delayed by 15 minutes were just as bad. Extremely loud and overpriced, it will not be repeated."

  • "Service wasn't good and the kabobs were comped because half the meat was fat. The strawberry margarita was also comped as I was told they didn't have them and had to go to the bartender directly to get it."

  • "The food is always great here, especially the steaks. I had the surf and special which included a filet a stuffed shrimp. It was delicious. One unexpected pleasure was that the manager brought over a complimentary sushi appetizer. It was very tasty. He said we received it because we made a reservation through OpenTable. Pretty Cool. My girlfriend lives and is from Ohio and she tried the gator tail. She loved it! It was some of the best gator I've ever had. It was tender and had the right amount of spice to it. I don't drink but the wine list looked interesting and had several nice bottles that I recognized."

  • "Hits: high quality ingredients, well prepared & presented. Our waiter was helpful & attentive. Misses: Surly greeters @ front of house, seated at a booth with a broken seat, we were moved, but these things should be checked out in advance. Also, booths near the bar should be avoided (even without a broken seat), as they are out of the way, a bit claustrophobic and overly warm (I thought our server was going to melt, whereas our party of 4 was simply uncomfortably warm). An expensive restaurant, which is not unreasonable given the quality of the food and the high end décor (forgetting about the broken seat for the moment), but it misses on a number of points, so overall not really worth it, but with a few adjustments it could be."
