We have been coming here for years and always have a wonderful experience. Tonight Felix and Sam went above and beyond for my husband's birthday. We can't say enough good things about this place and highly recommend FishBones for dinner.

Perfect place for a quite night out! My wife and I had reservations for two in the patio area where we had sushi and oysters which was delicious and the drinks were amazing! Very friendly atmosphere throughout! They had live entertainment with a solo guitarist which played a variety of music (very good)! Can't wait to go again!!

Excellent seafood and fish dishes. They also serve meat dishes, had not tried there. Good service, although the wait for wine and the main dish was longer than expected.

The food was delicious and the service was top notch. The ambiance was a little tough for us because it was so loud from all of the people dining where we were seated. It was so loud that we could not hear each other speaking at the table.

Service wasn’t what I expected at the Lake Mary location. I’ve been to the Fishbones on Sand Lake DR and it was spectacular. The service at the Lake Mary location was horrible. The sever was training a new hire and for some reason the server felt it was his responsibility to make humor vs ensuring drinks were being filled, the table wasn’t been jammed up with dirt dishes etc. At one point during the dinner, I purposely stacked 4 empty glasses, creating a tower just to see how long it would take to get them cleared from the table. Needless to say it took some time.

Then to have the audacity to charge a 20% gratuity, wow!!
Totally not what I expected, can’t wait until the Sand Lake RD location reopens.

This is 2nd time in last 3 meals that has gone poorly. I ordered the porterhouse MW. It came out medium raw so sent it back. It came back charred, I took one bite and it tasted like charcoal. Manager came and was nice and ordered a new steak. This one came back again almost raw. At this point my wife was holding back on her fish and it was getting cold. She felt bad about eating without me. So the manager comes back and says they'll bake it. I tasted it but it tasted very strange and tough. I ate about 1/3 of it and gave up. My wife said let's hurry and go so we paid and left asap. Is it really this hard to properly cook a steak? In the last 30 years i've not had to return a steak at ruth chris even one time.

Great ambiance. We were warmly greeted and escorted to our table. Social distancing is still being adhered to. Our server Dani was as pleasant and efficient as she could be.

Our rib eye was cooked to perfection. The side dishes are large enough to share among 3 people.

We had a lovely dinner and a great experience.

Went for my birthday. Service was slower than usual but the food was great. Our server automatically added 20% tip to our bill which bothered me a lot. I changed it, just because it should be our choice, not hers. We will be back, just will make sure we do not have that server again.

Everything about the meal, was good. The problem was, that the kitchen was slow at getting the food out. After the appetizer, and salad were served, there was such a long wait for the entre that we weren't hungry. We tool it home.

Thoroughly enjoyed my birthday at Fishbones! From the warm greeting, to the amazing service (thank you, Mike!), to the wonderful food, and to the great live music at the outside bar I can't think of a better place for anyone to spend their birthday. I can't wait to return to Fishbones for more amazing experiences.

I’ve been here several time but the last time was the worst. I ask for salt and waitress would come and sprinkle a lit and take salt and pepper shakers away. Ask second time same thing third time same. Took my appetite. Then had the adasity to over charge for drinks had two drinks and was charged for four.

My bone-in ribeye was good being cooked over wood fired grill. Wife's Mahi Mahi was overcooked and real dry. The Spicy double tuna sushi roll was absolutely perfect, which is what I remember from my last visit a couple of years ago. Had asparagus and cedar plank cauliflower for sides- quite disappointing as well as they were bland. Service was good. Based on the price we paid, it was not a good value and we will not be going back anytime soon.

Fish Bones is one of our favorites, we've truly never had a bad experience. Food is always spot on, great fresh specials, and staff is very knowledgeable and professional.
Highly recommend the Hawaiian Trigger Fish when they have it.

Outstanding experience. Food was unbelievably terrific! Our service met or exceeded that as well. Had drinks which were great. You do have to bring your wallet, but the food, service, and overall experience are certainly worth it.

We have visited this Restaurant several times and returned due to the amazing food, wine & Service. Last night was not so special as we had extremely slow Service & got some very Cold food. They were apologetic & provided a discount off bill, but the attitude by Management was quite condescending
Think this is yet another example of an Industry stressed by a limited pool of quality candidates & have to settle for a lackadaisical workforce

We had a party of 11. The waiter Chris was great and very attentive. As far as the food is concerned, while the shareable’s were tasty, the entrees lacked flavor and seasoning. Three dishes were taken back while others were just picked over. Definitely not worth the price for entrees.

This was our first experience dining at Fishbones and the experience was very pleasant! The presentation and ambiance was perfect. Staff was friendly and courteous. The house salad and bread was on point. Loved the table side potato dressing. The butter bake and key lime pie was fantastic. The only issue I had was the filet was a bit charred and the lobster had a fishy smell but both tasted delicious.
