Fish Bones American Grill Ratings and Reviews
The food was pretty good, our server walked by our table a few times before she came over and then was just kind of awkward the whole time... No sense of hospitality or humor. It was our anniversary and I made note of that on our reservation and no one did or said anything at all.
Waited about 20 minutes to be seated even w/reservation. Only 2 choices for a non meat-eater..A simple salad, or rissoto as long as you like the chefs choice that week. My salad was plain, and the tiny bowl of dressing wasn't nearly enough. My husband ordered a feta/chicken dish and the menu didn't mention it was full of Greek olives which he doesn't like. Dissapointing, especially for the prices there.
We were on our way to a play and fully enjoyed our table location and the mill atmosphere. The Sunday brunch menu was varied with lots of interesting choices. Be sure to have the tuna crisps!
The downside was we had to ask (twice) about the chorizo sausage that was supposed to come in our mussels, and for bread to soak up the broth. Eventually, We got a side dish of crumbled sausage to mix in after we were almost done with the mussels. I also had to ask for more coffee and then for cream (after my friend got her soda refilled and my coffee was empty) and for ketchup for the fries. We split a monte cristo (kind of odd made with smoked pork) and while we did get an extra plate, we only got 1 syrup. However, our server had a lovely personality and I attribute her oversights to training issues, not attitude. She wasn’t busy.
All said, I’d go back. The food was delicious, fairly priced and and as previously noted...have the ahi tuna crisps. Amazing!
My wife and I went for Sunday brunch. We really liked the fact that they don't squeeze in too many tables. There is room to sit comfortably and walk around with ease. The waitress was very nice and friendly. Very pleasant to talk to. We started off with a scone, which was excellent. My wife had a frittata, which she enjoyed very much. I had the smoked salmon benedict and it was fantastic. In both our meals I would have to say the potato hash was not the high light of the meal.
We would definitely go back again.
We had a wonderful evening at Fishbones. The waiter, from Poland, was outstanding, He was attentive to our needs and was friendly and courteous. The food was excellent, except that the steak was a bit tough. Other than that, the experience was excellent. Our hats are off to a great restaurant.
Asked for a window seat. Plenty of tables open when we got there, but the inconsiderate hostess felt it was necessary to tuck us into the corner directly beside a party of 12 or more. Would have been one thing had it been the only table left, but i saw several tables open for a while after i was seated. One table at the window stayed open for at least more than half way thru our dinner. The party of 12 was loud and obnoxious and the enclosed area made it dreadful. Why would you seat anyone like that if it was not necessary. Your hostress training needs to be stepped up a lot. If i come back it will not be for a very long time. Too bad because it was my wife's favorite place but with such a non thinking inconsiderate hostess like that, and it so obviously bad, i will not take the chance again. Wow. Worse experience ever when it did not need to be. Can't believe it. Wow. Very disappointing.
I've been to Fish Bones several times, over the past several years. The staff is friendly and the service is good. However, the past two times I've been there my food has come out cold. Well actually barely warm. The meals are not exactly inexpensive here, so I would expect better service. I do not have any idea if it's the fault of the wait staff not picking up the food soon enough, or if it's the chef's problem.
Delighted by our dinner last night. Our server was wonderful - fun and attentive, but hovering. Enjoyed the poutine with pork belly starter. Duo of duck and haddock with shrimp entree were excellent. Seared scallops were good, but could a bit more searing. Ginger creme brulee was a perfect finish. Decent wine list. Noisy, so wouldn't be my first choice for a romantic dinner, but great place overall.
This is a nice restaurant that is tastefully decorated in a rustic style taking advantage of the original mill aesthetics. Despite the hard wall/ceiling surfaces, the noise level increased as the tables filled but not excessively so. The service was good and wait person attentive. We had the pan seared scallops and risotto with shrimp. Both were properly cooked and nicely presented. This was the second time I've taken my mother there for dinner and will do so again in the future.
Friendly welcoming attention from the moment you walk in the door. The server was pleasant, helpful making recommendations. Wine list is good, I had the seafood chowder, excellent and wild caught haddock, delicious. Companion had tuna and wanted it done medium. Server cautioned that more well done than medium would not be good. Tuna was done to perfection. Server checked back to be sure everything was alright. The converted mill is interesting and it was a great place to go before the theatre.
