    Ordered Clam Chowder, it never arrived. When main course arrived and I drew attention to lack of starter I was asked if I wanted it at that point. With my steak already on table - I declined. No real apology or explanation - no reduction in bill. This is the second time this has happened to me at Fish Bones.

    At the waiter's suggestion, I had the wood grilled trigger fish. It was some of the best fish I've ever had. Perfectly prepared and expertly seasoned. My friends had the stuffed shrimp and Mahi Mahi. They were equally impressed. Despite his name (Fluffy), our waiter was a true professional. He made the dining experience exceptional.

    We usually go to Charlies when in Orlando, but decided to try Fishbones for a change. The food was expertly prepared and presented. They had wonderful soft jazz playing in the background. The fish tanks are very soothing and give an additional relaxation to your evening out. The service was outstanding without being overbearing. John Wilkonson (General Manager) took time out to talk to all of the clients to ensure that they had a great dining experience. He has a very engaging personality and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to any friend that will be in Orlando. We will certainly be back.

    Found this using Tripadvisor and the reviews were great. They were right! We were on vacation and trying to find a place to eat, and we used the online reservation system. Food was very good and plentiful. Tom our server was awesome. If we ever get back that way we would eat there again.

Although if has typical surf and turf fare, there was also a nice selection of different menu items. The staff was pleasant and knowledgable. I would go again!

Appetizers and cocktails were amazing! Kids menu was reasonable in price. We will definitely be visiting again when we return to Orlando. Wish they had one in Atlanta!!

  • Outstanding Dinner, but very noisy

    Dined on 10/8/2014
    First time there.....overall, the food & service was outstanding...only slight complaint is that it was very noisy. This was a very special occasion for us, as it was both our anniversary and my wife's birthday. All of our family was there (7 of us) and we were all seated in the room in the far side from the main entrance. After being there only about 30 mins, the room quickly filled up. Felt like we were eating in a cafeteria with all of the noise. On the reservation request, I mentioned the special occasion but that did not seem to matter. The service and food were both outstanding, so we did not let the noise spoil our night. We would not have mind the noise on any other dinning out, but this was a very special occasion.

    The service here is always terrific! Had Billy this time and he was nothing short of great!! The food has never let me down (4th visit now) the prime rib is the best in the US---literally. My husband had the whole snapper and loved it. They have a super gluten free menu that will not disappoint! So if you're looking to dress up and have an amazing dinner head here....or if you're me, head here no matter how you're dressed. I have shown up in business casual all the way to shorts n t-shirt--always greeted and treated the same!

    overall experience was good . we had a good waiter greet us and explain the menu and specials. I ordered the prime rib 16 oz med rare .. was not at all pleased with the cut of beef. it was tough to cut and has several veins I had to cut through. flavor was good , but for the price I was charged it did not seem like a PRIME cut . big part of fat and marbling was not there I would expect from Prime beef . After our meal was served our waiter checked on us once .. someone else had to refill drinks . we had brought a birthday cake and we had to get one of the managers to bring it out . but she was very friendly and helped cut the cake . we had to get the floor manager to get our check . my family enjoyed our visit ..

    As always, Fishbones food was excellent and our waiter Anthony was very accommodating as were both on diets, so he was able to help us create a dinner platter with low-glycemic foods. I was however, surprised at their limited menu as compared to the massive menu at Fishbones Lake Mary where I frequently dine. Even though I was on a diet, I did ask if the have Red Velvet cake as a dessert option, like Fishbones Lake Mary, and they indicated no? Therefore for those of you who dine at Fishbones Lake Mary may be a little bit disappointed with their more limited menu and no Red Velvet cake option for dessert. The seafood and steaks were still on both menus.

    Prescott, our server, was attentiive and patient as he answered our many questions about the fish and its preparation. We were looking for something light and Prescott's suggestions were right on. We all decided our meals were delicious but the sea bass was he best! The ambiance is a little quirky....kind of an upscale fish camp but overall, it was a lovely dining experience....

    At this price point, we expected more than average food but everything we had - drinks, bread, salad, entrees - were nothing special and, in some cases poorly prepared. There was so much overly-salty seasoning on my fish that I couldn't even taste the fish.

    We've eaten here quite often, even though we live in Jacksonville. It's the "when wer're in Orlando" place to eat. The service is always great and the food is excellent. Lots of choices from the menu. Being light drinkers, we can't speak to the wine list or drink selections. It's a must place to eat in Orlando. I highly recommend it.

    Experience was OK. Waitress service started of good, but dropped off at end of meal. Got gum on my shoe at valet stand. left with bad feelings for a rather expensive dinner. My wife's swordfish was partially dry. I wasn't aware how my salmon was going to be prepared. It was delicious, but not how I expected.

    Family was craving sea food so we googled restaurants from our Orlando hotel room and found "FishBones." From our arrival with the valet parking, warm greeting from the hosts and the extremely knowledgeable server who was grilled with questions from my 9 yr old. Great food, service and family friendly atmosphere makes "Fishbones" a great place to enjoy a family night out!

    Fish Bones is a great restaurant overall, the plus is the quality of the food but I found portions to be a little to big for me but it makes sense since this is not an economical restaurant. Expect a moderate to large bill but is very well worth it, free valet parking, quiet atmosphere and a sure fit for a romatic evening or even family dinner

    This was My first time to Fish Bones but it will not be my last! Outstanding food, service and atmosphere. Renee was our waitress and she was awesome! Christine was our food runner and was delightful then the manager stopped by the table and that was very impressive. So many restaurants don't do that and I think it shows excellent service from management. We will tell everyone about Fish Bones and it will be our new regular place. Great food, service and staff. Plus the cheese bread and house salad rocks...... LOVED IT!!!!!

    My wife and I were promptly seated, and served by Carlos, who along with the kitchen did a marvelous job of accommodating my wife's dairy allergy. We both enjoyed the unique style of ceviche which resembled more of a deconstructed shrimp/seafood cocktail. I had blackened swordfish with mango salsa. It was very good, though the mango was not quite ripe so was a bit hard. My wife had the special filet and lobster tail, and both were cooked perfectly and delicious. I loved the cheese bread which was a great accompaniment.

    The food at Fishbones was very good. I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass with lump crab lemon butter topping with a baked potato. The potato was delicious and did not seem to be pre-baked, which Made me extremely happy. The fish was delicious. My husband ordered the New York Strip Steak with garlic mashed potatoes. Neither of us were able to finish everything so the portion sizes were great. The lighting was a bit too dim but other than that, the ambience was great. Last but not least the service was great. Christina H. Was our waitress and she was delightful. I should mention that it was not very busy when we went at9pm on a Monday night.

    I chose this restaurant for date night with my wife. The service and atmosphere were both fine, also the salad, bread, and potatoes were very good. The issue was the main entre. I had the prime rib which when smoked, tastes like brisket. My wife had the mixed grill with two kinds of fish that were well over done with no sauce to hide how terribly it was prepared and a scampi plate containing scallops and shrimp that were like trying to eat through a bowl full of rubber bands. We will not be returning.

    we have always wanted to try fish bones, so I decided to take my husband there for our 25th anniversary, (BAD MISTAKE) they all knew it was our anniversary and did nothing at all for us, not even a free dessert, the food was the worst we have honestly ever eaten , except for the salad---it was the biggest waste of money I have ever spent on a meal out...my chicken dish was tasteless, my husbands shrimp was so over done it was like rubber--my gosh people , we live in florida and they had no sweet tea---our waiter was slow in serving us with refilling our drinks---all I can say , is what a huge disappointment this was for us on such a special day !!!
