We visit FishBones for date nights. Generally the food is on point and this evening was no exception. We decided just to sit at the bar for apps and Sushi. Each item was fresh and delicious. But the service at the bar was not so great. At least compared to other visits. The bar tender was slow. Only responded when we stopped him. Another server checked on us more than he did.

Will I go back? Of course. Food is to good to let a guy off his game be an issue. Sometimes. a senior staff member just needs to plug back in to their craft.

Excellent food! Enjoyed the calamari for appetizer. We also ordered the shrimp cocktail, which comes on a large iced tray, but includes only 5 shrimp! Yes they are large, but a few more would be nice. Lots of empty space on the tray...either add more shrimp (10-12 medium size at least) or serve on a smaller tray; it looks ridiculous as-is.
The lobster mac and cheese as well as the bacon and cheddar mashed as sides are excellent, but you HAVE to get the creamed corn! Our server was either over-stretched with having to cover too many tables alone or just not good at his job; he was not very attentive and seemed very short with us. He rushed to us and was rushing to get away.

This was a birthday Celebration. We were given a complimentary dish of edamame which is usually a favorite of ours. The edamame were overcooked sand mushy. The cayenne pepper on them was overwhelming.

Great experience as usual. Service and food were fantastic. Love the sushi here and I think it’s one of the better spots in Orlando. Four of us shared a porterhouse, filet, and trigger fish with lobster Mac and mushrooms. Not a bad thing in our table.

I was disappointed that they didn't offer their happy hour menu in the main dinning room. I wasn't aware that you could only get happy hour at the bar or outside. Outside is always booked and the bar isn't conducive for larger parties. Otherwise, always a wonderful dining experience!

This our second visit to this lication our server was Daniel. He was was very attentive and informative. We had five guests with a variety of dishes. Two of ordered different fish but both blackened. The seasoning was weak. We were warned about the spicy flavoring, but the flavor was hardly there at all. The steaks were good and the side dishes tasty. I thought the asparagus serving was small. Overall a good experience, but I will not order anything blackened on my next visit. We will go back as our first visit was five stars.

Well this was our second time here and our first time it was fabulous, not this time.
To start our waiter was wearing dirty clothes, his vest and his pants were filthy.
He was ok but for a 5 star restaurant he was lacking. I wish I could remember his name, alas I cannot, the other waiter who was helping him had his hair up in a bun if that helps.
We received our appetizers before our drinks and one drink we had to wait for the olives for the martini and put them in the glass ourselves that is not five star dining.
We dressed up and the next thing we know in comes a teenage baseball team with parents and or coaches and not one coach removed their hats and of course the boys did not either, what is wrong with parents today that they do not teach their children how to behave in a nice restaurant.
We will be canceling our next reservation given how we were treated this last time, unacceptable for a five star restaurant, have some guidelines for customers at the very least no hats at the table and one of the parents was wearing a sweatshirt with shorts no one could see??????
You can call me old fashioned but I believe there should be some guidelines and or rules when you enter a restaurant.
We might as well have gone to McDonalds!
FishBones you were not a five star tonight and have lost several customers tonight.
One last item we asked for menus and of. Purse they had the phone thing which we did use, but we asked for hard menus and they brought them and they were dirty, one had food on the menu, my wife is allergic to shellfish and it looked like shellfish, there sanitation promised failed miserably tonight, I hold the managers responsible for this lack of service and lack of cleanliness, when a waiter show up in dirty clothes and looks like he has not shaved on a week you send him home to clean up not put him to work so we have to look at him while we order food, reminded us of the commercial about the stain on the guys shirt that was talking and that’s all you hear

Everything was amazing. Definitely my new favorite restaurant. Typically when you go to a restaurant it’s either the seafood or the steak that’s really good hands-down the best seafood and steak I’ve ever had. The drinks and the service was amazing as well.

Our table was outside in the sun, and our server was less than attentive. I love this restaurant, and the food was great, as usual. However, the seating outside the patio area is less than ideal. It’s actually not conducive to Florida weather conditions, and I think it’s a bad idea for the restaurant to extend seating options with these tables. It was very disappointing, and I will think twice before dining there again.

We enjoy the patio. However when live music comes on and your Table is set before they set up you don’t really have an option to have a conversation anymore once the music starts

Disappointed this time. Waiter seemed inexperienced, not attentive. Food not good. Wife's crab cakes too full of extra spices. My whole snapper undercooked. Would not pull off bones and slightly bloody in middle. Big let down for a birthday celebration. Music was so loud we could hardly talk to each other.
