Tommy our server was completely unprofessional and made mistake after mistake, after taking the whole order which he did NOT write down, some 15 minutes later he brought one glass of wine when I clearly ordered a bottle for my wife and I , he went off again,returned 15 minutes later wirh the wine and two large wine glasses, these were all I could find he said? Then a waitress appeared with a tray of food, hi how are you she said, I said I'd be better if we'd had our salads and warm bread, as he poured the wine ,Tommy said yeah ,well, the kitchen is running an hour behind so I got your order in real quick ? The place did not appear to be especially busy at 915pm we had arrived at 810 for a booking at 815. Our steaks were on the table and he went off to get the salads, my 5 dollar extra truffle butter still hadn't melted when he returned with salad and bread, the steak was tepid at best, hey I'll change it. I declined and explained the mistake after mistake the time it had all taken thus far, Tommys method of dealing with a complaint is to glare at you and stare you out ! So now we have a load of food wine ,salad,bread basket, and steak in front of us on at 2 person table, it was an awful experience, he popped by again to serve another table and began his sales pitch with them ,it was word perfect as the sales pitch we had from him, his favourites, his perfect wine recommendation at 135 dollars on special from the normal 250.We finished the food and choose desert, the creme brulle was granular the salted caramel cheesecake was nothing like Tommy described, he brought the check & said as your pushed for time I've done the check, this was Tommys callback to me complaining about the time scale, We paid & didn't leave him a tip. We have eaten here before as Tommy may recall, because his opening line was have you been to Fish Bones before? Yes I replied and quoted the exact date , he looked at me said nothing, and then took us hrough the menu item by item !

Visiting infrequently from 200 miles away; finding the consistency of great food across both locations, well prepared & presented by highly efficient, knowledgeable staff, makes for successful business, special occasions, and romantic mealtime.

The place is either too hot or too cold, and the food is really not as great as you would think for the price. The fish was overcooked for at least 2 people in our party and really the flavors were not all there for everyone in our group. The best part of the meal that I heard from everyone was the bread and salad. I calamari was good too, but the carrots and fish items left a lot to be desired specially at a $30+ price tag each. There are many better and higher quality seafood restaurants in Central Florida, and plan to go to places like the Blue Zoo instead.

They only had a 20 or 22 oz lobster tail...it was my birthday and that is why my husband took me there I LOVE lobster..it was over the top expensive since they could not provide a smaller lobster tail...my husband asked for prime rib med rare..but more on the rare side it wasn't close to even medium rare. he was really disappointed.... he ended up eating 1/2 of my lobster and left 1/2 of the prime rib sit

This restaurant was absolutely incredibly delicious. If you’re looking for fresh fish that is cooked to perfection paired with other great tasting foods, then Fish Bones is the restaurant for you. I started off with the fish spread which was absolutely delicious not too fishy. The salad was fresh crispy and their homemade dressing was just right. I ordered off of the special menu, which was Hawaiian triggerfish topped with lump crab in their signature light sauce. The waitress was very nice had a great sense of humor, and was on top of her game. Calling ahead using the open table app assured us a seat at the time we requested. Since it was on the weekend, in this particular spot in Orlando where we were staying was very crowded with vacationers. Can’t wait to go back

The food was not what we expected. The food was either over seasoned or not seasoned well enough. Our waitress was pleasant but not attentive to our needs. The restaurant tried to please us by giving us a free dessert. However, the apple pie was not that great. Just an overall bad experience!

Excellent choice for an out-of-town anniversary dinner. Food and service was great and the special attention was extra special. All went well until they seated a young family with two infant/toddlers in the next booth when 6+ booths were available in other areas. Good thinking- NOT!!

Unfriendly bartender lady, bad margarita, food not prepared correctly and remade before we had a chance to request it and thus after all other food had arrived, other tables complaining to the manager nearby, food brought to the table before dishes from previous courses cleared, people changing clothes in ladies restroom as if a locker room, other waitresses shooing me by to hurry me out of her way as I returned to restroom. Overall strange experience. Would never go back. Food just okay.

It seems impossible for me to compliment my waiter but yet ding the restaurant for the time it took to get my food. It took longer than expected in my opinion to get my food. I sat down at about 7:50 give or take and at 8:50 I had not gotten my entree. I made mention of this fact to the manager on duty that night (I do not remember whether her name was Jennifer or Jessica) and to my amusement, she tried verbal gymnastics to explain why it took so long. She assured me that because I had ordered oysters, my food was thus cued to follow that much later. Well sorry to disagree with you but it also took another 30 minutes from the time i sat down to get bread and salad. I was personal because everyone else around me was not receiving that same quality or lack thereof of service. Lastly, I observed this same manager walk about and ask everyone else how their food was and how was the service but would not stop at my table. And lastly, when the food came, the steak was too salty and the Madagascar prawns was cold.

This place really missed the mark for me. It was my first time, and sadly, also my last. First, I had a reservation for 8:30. As I was walking up to the restaurant, I received a text that my table was ready... great timing! I approached the hostess stand who was particularly unpleasant, she simply said "ok" and went back to what she was doing. FIFTEEN minutes later, I was called for my table that was "ready" when I was walking in the front door. Odd. The restaurant was not busy, despite being a Friday night (clue!) and there were many empty tables - so not sure why we had to wait so long. Well, the wait for the table was about equal to the wait for our server "Chad" to come say hello to us. He was super dry and lacked any noticeable personality. He took our wine/drink order, and then disappeared for another 15/20 minutes. Again, many empty tables, what is the hold up? No clue.. no apology, just carried on like this was the every day experience. We had clam chowder (REALLY good), Alligator Bites (soggy, cold, and chewy but flavor was good). The house salad was really very tasty... but the garlic/cheese rolls were burnt and tasted like ash - disappointing at the least. Main courses were good, but I felt the portion size on the Mahi to be unusually small. I ordered it blackened, and while it was really under-seasoned to be called "blackened" it was still tasty - small, but tasty. The side, broccoli casserole, was very good. Overall, for the price point, I was REALLY let down by the apathetic and slow service. He never even asked how everything was. No manager came by the table, and no hostess even said goodbye on our way out. Total let down, for something I had been looking forward to for a while. As I said, my first and last visit.
