FishBones - Lake Mary Ratings and Reviews
This was our second time sitting in the room beside the outdoor dinning area both times the room temperature was very cold to the point that all of the people in our party felt cold and uncomfortable. When our food was served it was at a lukewarm temperature. The steaks were cool and so were the vegetables. The children in our party had French fries that were also limp and cold. This was not just one of the meals but all of them. This was the second time our meals were served not warm.
We find these things unacceptable for the price that we were charged for our meals. Due to these things we will be looking at other dinning options in the area. We used to enjoy our visits to the restaurant but our last two experiences have caused us to feel the need to look for a different restaurant to celebrate special occasions .
My overall experience was good. I’ve been to this location on a couple of different occasions but never on New Year’s Eve. The wait with a reservation was 45 minutes. The entire dInner took over 3 hours which in my opinion is too long, but we were with friends so it really didn’t matter. The service was good and the food is always excellent. They gave us all free desserts because of the wait time.
Reservation was at 8:45 pm and we did not get our entrees until amost 11:00 pm. Filets were over cooked. The coulle with ordered fish and said it was terrible. This restaurant is about $50 per person. Service and food should be amazing at that price! Very disappointing! We were taveling with our soccer team and other familes were complaining about it too. They had gone the night before. I would never go again! Also we are gluten free and they somehow have gluten on the prime rib which makes no sense! I make it all the time and it is unecessary.
The steaks were outstanding, as was the salad, vegetables and service. We were there on New Years Eve but the service and food were wonderful even at this busy time!
I really liked the cool ambiance and decor.
I highly recommend this restaurant. I wish we had one in our area!
We have eaten at Fishbones multiple times and like their food. Made reservations for New Year's Eve for 8:30pm for just my husband and I. I get that it was New Year's Eve but I picked Fishbones because they have been around for a while and I figured they would know how to handle the NYE crowds. We get to the restaurant at 8:20pm. We check in and the manager working the hostess table said we will seat you closer to your reservation. Great, got it! 9:20pm we have still not been sat yet. 2 couples beside us(which by the way we got to know well due to the delay in getting seated) which had reservations for 8:45pm got seated before us. And believe me we checked with the hostess twice so it wasn't like they didn't know we were there. We get to our table finally at 9:30pm. Waiter was super lame about the whole situation. No I"m sorry, what can I do to make it up to you. So we had friends who were meeting us there at 9:30pm for just drinks in the bar. Our friends had eaten dinner with their parents and we thought we would almost be done with our meal by 9:30pm. They show up and we had't even ordered yet. So we ditched our table and went and sat with them at the bar. We had a good time with our friends but the magical New Year's Eve meal was ruined by the unorganized staff at Fishbones. While at the bar, a manager came by to ask how we were doing. We told him our experience and got our drinks comped and some gift cards that have to be used withing 30 days(lame). The evening was just not fun and special due to Fishbones dropping the ball. Don't really want to go back.
My wife and I made New Years reservations for 7:15 and were seated within 15 minutes upon arrival. The service was very good and we received our food quickly and correctly cooked. The wait staff was friendly and very helpful. The prime rib and large filet were very good with all the trimmings. We will definitely go back to this restaurant very soon.
We were very disappointed in the service. We have been to this restaurant in the past on New Years Eve and never experienced as slow service as we did this year. Our total time in the restaurant was about three hours with no dessert or coffee. We waited over two hours between the salad and our entree in which twice we had to ask our server where our meal was. Our server Austin was very good but It was obviouse that the problem was in the kitchen. In the end, management compensated us very well. The management understands what customer service is all about. We appreciate and thank the management for their generosity and even though we had a bad experience that evening we will return.
For the price, I was not super impressed with our waiter or the food. Server was Friendly but made several server etiquette errors. Food was tasty but meat a little dry; the lamb (ordered med rare) first came in very rare and then after sending back it was returned as medium well. Noise level was very high. Overall a decent place. Kitchen was overextended due to high volume of diners (new year’s eve). May explain food being over or undercooked.
5pm reservation New Years Eve.Didn’t care for seating choice. We were seated first in a banquet room with several large families with children. We asked for another table. There were plenty of open tables where we usually sit; but they had us wait and then seated our party of four at a long table for eight. Food was good. Carol was an excellent server.
We were unpleasantly surprised by the number of service issues at this restaurant. Unlike prior visits, the waiter assigned to our table provided extremely poor service. The list of issues included the following: 1) Chardonnay delivered to the table v. the pinot noir ordered...and then the waiter asked if we wanted her to return it, rather than insisting she correct the error 2) Rolls provided only on request and then delivered without butter...then one of us had to get up and ask someone for butter 3) mashed potatoes delivered with the steaks were ice cold...had to ask to send back 4) the waiter delivered the steaks and left our table before we could cut into them...my wife's was order medium well and came out rare....my steak was order medium and came out well...once again, one of us had to get up and flag someone down to get the waiter to come and address the issue 5) on delay in getting a draft beer to the table, I asked the waiter if she had ordered the beer....I was then given a dirty look and a mean tone in her response that she had done so. Obviously, no one expects to spend $150 for this kind of attitude and poor service. Not sure I will return, if the restaurant can't afford better wait staff.
I was a little surprised by the loud noise level in the kitchen in the bar area. It was non-existent when we were seated.
Our server cheerfully explained the specials. She was very attentive without hovering.
Appetizers were served quickly and were adequate in size. Our orders were served promptly and done to perfection.
Everyone in our party totally enjoyed the meal and service and look forward to returning soon.
