    The quality of the food but we were disappointed by the "jumbo" scallops. The $12 extra charge for 3 rather small (although tasty) scallops did not meet our expectations. Other than that, solid selection of fresh seafood and fish, all nicely prepared.

    The restaurant was good. The food was good. But the service needs help. Management needs to hire helpers for the waiter. Our poor waiter had to do everything except park our car. So if you go there and it's even a little busy expect to wait a wait to anything you order.

    We ordered Ahi Tuna, Sea Bass, and Bone-in Ribeye.... would have loved it much more if we have not tried Moon Fish a night before, which we had ordered pretty much the same thing... The Ahi Tuna, although sushi grade, was over-cooked. Had it been cooked in blue rare style, I'm sure I would have enjoyed it much. As for the Bone-in Ribeye, it was good, but since we have tasted a juicer steak the night before, we would recommend Moon Fish for your dinner, which is a few blocks down the same road.

    This is a very busy restaurant! My reservation for two people was for 6:45pm and we arrived on time. We sat in the entrance area for 40 minutes before we were seated. Once seated, the service was very good. My wife ordered the 16ounce lobster tail and I ordered the whole grilled red snapper. The lobster came out barely warm and dry (over cooked). My snapper could not have been better. There was not an empty seat in the place until after we finished eating and this is the "off season"in Orlando, the first week in November, an not a major convention in town. This restaurant was much better before it got so popular.

    Our table was a available immediately upon arriving. The wait staff worked well as a team to serve all of the customers. The manager even chipped in as he maneuvered around. Our waitress was key to our great dinner. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. My dish, triggerfish, was excellent. I did have the appetizer special which is the shrimp cocktail. Overall a great experience. The only negative was that I sat in a booth and there were four men adjacent to us and they were too close for comfort.

    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.

    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 ..

    Dined on 9/29/2014
    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.
