Very nice dinner. I had a fried whole snapper and it was presented and cooked beautifully. The creamed kale was delicious. My husband’s steak was also very good. We will definitely return.

We had a nice meal. Artichokes for appetizer, very good. I had fried shrimp, hubby had scampi. Both were delightful. Shrimp were huge. I could only eat 4 of the 8. The sides were big enough to share. Their house salad was delicious. Dessert was Pina colada cake with homemade whipped cream.

We love Fishbones and during our last meal there, we had tremendous service from our waiter, Xavier. If I could have given a gold star to him, I would have.

He was great and added to the already impressive level we have come to expect from Fishbones. Forget the other high end restaurants because Fishbones will provide you with amazing food cooked perfectly and the variety that will please everyone!

Ask for Xavier as well because he was one of the best serving professionals we have ever had! Also, the manager on duty was terrific and very in tune with our food choices!

Birthday. Excellent food and service as always. Our waiter was new, but did an amazing job. The special presentation they do for birthdays and anniversaries makes you feel special. Best clam chowder ever. Love this restaurant.

This was our first time at this restaurant. The waiter was efficient. The food choices were varied with fish and steaks featured. I'm visiting from out of town and am not that familiar with Orlando. I think the food was OK to good, but was pricey for the quality. I don't mind paying for outstanding food, but this food was not outstanding. I think you should be able to make a better choice of restaurant.

The prime rib melted in your mouth.
The service was awesome. Definitely will return for a special occasion.
We celebrated our 43rd anniversary and was presented with a card and orchids on the table.

Best pork chops ever! Order 2, but plan to take the second one home for tomorrow.
One of my favorite restaurants to go to whenever we are in Orlando.
Wedge salad was awesome.

Not a bad experience overall. The food was good but not a Capital Grill or Ruth Chris level for the price charged. One of my guest steak was under cooked and it was just written as oh well.

Fairly noisy, but expected. We were seated quickly and we were early for our 7:15 reservation. I’ve been here many times and was just here 2 weeks ago. I’ve noticed a significant decrease in the business lately. Could it be the construction on the road outside? I don’t know. Might be more competition and an old menu. Service started good but trailed off as they got busy. Maybe not enough staff on to handle a little rush? The place wasn’t close to being packed. No line like usual. Many open booths and tables. We had the calamari app and it was great as usual. Broke down and tried the fried shrimp. Waiter told us the owner was the guy who started the Red Lobster chain and brought the recipe with him so I was sold. They were awesome. Would recommend if you like big juicy fried shrimp. Not a thick batter coating but a flaky crunchy coating. Asparagus sucked but was out of season, so my bad. Beer was icy cold and on time. Overall a good choice.

Good food at prices that will not break the bank. The endless bread rolls are delicious. If you are looking for a larger fish selection try Moon Fish also part of the Talk of the Town restaurant group.

the cesars salad was no cesars salad, no bread, no Parmesam (some other cheeese).
The fish and teh shrimps were hidden under a much too thick panade.
Only the meat was fine.
And for that it was much much much too expensive

We had a wonderful experience at Fish Bones. It is slightly upscale in price but greatly upscale in food, service and ambiance. I loved by Crab Stuffed Shrimp Scampi and my companion loved the searing of his New York Strip.

Food and service very good. One negative - we had bracelets from Bluegreen and showed to server - we were to get $5.00 off drinks. He did not give us this credit. Paid by credit card and did not see the discount was not given until we left.

The wait staff was overworked with too many tables to properly take care of a party of 6. We rarely saw him to get refills. 2 drinks were completely missed. The silverware was filthy as were several of the bread plates. Manager didn't seem to care much when we reported it to him. Never apologized. Just simply picked it up and brought more. The only bright spot was the food wasn't too bad. Likely the last time we go there.

Nice place good food. Just couldn’t get anything as our server forgot about us. Thank goodness he was their to take our order after 15-20 minute wait. Food did come out but was not brought out by him so we had no wait. Last we saw of him until we caught him for the check. Had been done 20 minutes. Loved the people we were with and had not much else to do so the night still ended ok.
