My husband and I went to Fish Bones for our anniversary dinner and it was amazing! The food was absolutely delicious, the service was fantastic and the ambiance was romantic! A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. The food was superb!

Thoroughly enjoyed my husband's 67th birthday at Fishbones. We had fabulous service (thank you, Michael!), were greeted warmly when we arrived, and enjoyed a fantastic meal. Can't wait to return for another memorable evening at Fishbones.

There’s a great party atmosphere on the patio and a very elegant & Beautiful atmosphere Inside the restaurant. They are very attentive and i’m not sure which was better the food or the staff! All around one of the best dining experiences I’ve had in a long time!

Fishbones has been my favorite restaurant for over 10 years but that has faded. We went the other night & now everything is al a carte. Before you would get a side item & salad with your main meal. Now you only get the salad. At $41 for a filet, you should have a side item included. Not only that, the taste of the filet wasn’t as good as it used to be. I doubt I will be going back.

In these Covid 19 times, we were asked to wait for a while in a very crowded enclosed reception area (we had reservations) . We were sat outdoors next to the music amplifiers, very loud music, unable to hear each other. We requested, and finally, we were offered another table.

The piece of prime rib was the worst I have ever had! I was lined with uncutable sinew and tendons. Less than 1/2 was edible.

We dine here often ... it's been better. Sometimes, MUCH better. Food this time was so-so; definitely not as good as other times. Even the house salad wasn't as good as usual. Server was distracted by a party of 12; she had a helper, but he disappeared. She was friendly, but most of her time was taken up by the other party.

All entrees (Mahi, Grilled Shrimp, and Lamb Chops) were over cooked. We sent the lamb chops backs which were fine the 2nd time, but in hind sight we should have done the same for the fish. Out of COVID caution, we ate outside where service was a bit slow, but service improved as the night went on. Lastly, we understand that smoking is legal outdoors, but with more people opting for outdoor dining these days, the restaurant should ban smoking for the comfort and enjoyment of those eating. The smoke coming from the next table was very annoying. All of this said, we still view Fishbones as the best true seafood restaurant in the Orlando area. The endless salad is a great feature.

Atmosphere was great, and so was the staff, safety of the customer was at the forefront, and that was a positive for me. The food was great, a little pricey but enjoyable. I would recommend Fish Bones to friends and family.

Christine was an amazing waitress! We started with a fancy Manhattan completed table side with smoked glass. We went with an amazing Blue Crab appetizer in a martini glass as a starter. My son and I split the 3lb Tomahawk ribeye and 1lb lobster with Mushrooms as a side. I have had the luxury of eating at many very nice places and this meal was so amazing that I had to share. FishBones offers the best of seafoods and steaks all in one restaurant!

We did happy house outdoors. Highly recommend the cantaloupe martini and Dang Bang shrimp. Our server Mike was extremely attentive and accommodating. We’re visiting from out of town but expect we’ll make a return visit before we leave.

We requested standard seating but were sat in an area next to the bar . It was extremely noisy I told the manager she said she would put it in my notes so I will not be seated there next time . My food came out before I was finished with my salad . They said my salmon would be medium it was well done . The lobster Mac and cheese was flavorless . It took 20 minutes from the time I was seated to get a glass of wine . The pork chop was raw in the middle . They give you a cup of lobster bisque to placate you while they cook the food some more which is a nice gesture but it was also flavorless. We have dined there 3 times in the last 5 weeks there were small issues the previous times but at least we didn’t feel like we were dining in a factory .

I guess we were lucky and it was not very busy. The stake was at a good temperature, which is difficult to receive when the restaurant is crowded. The service was pleasant, professional.

Reserved table. Outside. Loved that they are very health conscious and provide personal hand sanitizer for each guest. Great touch and promotes health and safety. We all enjoyed the outdoor seating more now, with less crowding and able to enjoy the musician better.
Food great and Server, Felix was great.

Everything was very good except for my Ribeye steak. For $52 I expected an exceptional flavor and for it to be tender. It was neither and very disappointing as I’ve had better ribeyes from Walmart cooked on my grill. The clam chowder was some of the best I’ve ever had and my wife loved her smoked prime rib. She tasted my ribeye and agreed with my assessment.

Our food was served to us cold, even after we sent it back our replacement was still cold. The manager went into damage control and gave us a free desert. But we’re losing faith in FishBones. It has been one of our favorite restaurants. It is pricey but worth it if your meal comes to you hot off the grill and not allowed to sit. FishBones needs an expeditor who will assure their customers food gets delivered promptly after cooking.

Food was not prepared to what was requested. The fillet mignon tasted as if it was cooked on a dirty grill or pan. I don’t think that I will spend that type of money on food of that quality again.
