The appetizers, salad, rolls, dessert and sides were excellent. My T-Bone and my wife's filet mignon were not cooked exactly to our request, but were nevertheless very good.

Excellent service with truly caring staff. Great bar area...we had drinks first at the bar before dinner...great martinis!

Had dinner in dining room...i had the lamb chops...cooked perfectly and delicious. Dinner came with salad and a side which was perfect for sharing!

My date/wife had the Crab Cakes and enjoy fully too!

Excellent dinner and a great place for a quiet evening out!

I have been raving about this place to my boyfriend as I used to live in Orlando and when I travel to Orlando I always eat here. Something has definitely changed so last time I was here with the food preparation. I don’t eat meat so I ordered the full fillet a fish snapper and he ordered the prime rib medium rare. The prime rib came out and were like well done there was all brown no read. He went ahead and ate it and didn’t want to send it back but the manager ended up comping that portion. It would’ve been better to just get it right the first time meeting the server should’ve noticed that it was overcooked as soon as I grab the plate to bring it to the table? The wine was good to fish was OK it wasn’t flavored is enough I have been raving about this place to my boyfriend as I used to live in Orlando and when I travel to Orlando I always eat here.

The wine was good to fish was OK it wasn’t flavored is enough. I would also recommend adding on icons for vegan or vegetarian friendly items i.e. the mashed potatoes are cooked with chicken stock and if I would’ve ordered that I would’ve become sick but I always ask about that stuff just in case. I’ll Beyonce has great salads are always good I’ll certainly be back but I hope the meal preparation improves.

Service was slow and unattentive and kept forgetting things that making our family dinner event very tiresome. My kid lost her toy and called back next day. I was promised to get in touch with about this issue. I was never contacted by them . Food is good but I won’t go back there.

We waited over 2 hours for our food. Also when they checked on our meal they said it would be 10 more minutes. The table that arrived an hour after we did got there food at the same time we did. Our waiter did not come check on us for 40 minutes as we sat with empty drinks. There unlimited salad and cheese bread is one serving and no refills so dont expect any. Super disappointed in the taste/ quality of food for the price plus gratuity (8 top) we had to pay.

First off: I rarely give a 5-star review. FishBones is one of our favorite restaurants in Orlando and the one that we always choose when it comes to special occasions or when we have guests in town. Love it!

The shrimp was huge and not expensive and the pork chop was at least one inch thick and was excellent. Very good charcoal taste.

I actually don’t do reviews but left here feeling as little taken , if wasn’t for our very attentive waitress.
Expect more from we thought was a famous fish and steak place where we spent >$170 for meal for 2
The decor is clearly an old 1980’s steakhouse hiding behind a few new front of house design additions.
Just visit the bathrooms.
The service was great, but the food was very disappointing. Especially in light of the huge sign reflect high TripAdvisor etc ratings. Dunno how explain that at all.
The cocktails were limited and uninspired. Mine was overly sweet, despite request, so just went with a wine.
The Ceasar salad was good.
Ordered the staff recommended chef fish special which not very flavorful was way too salty to finish.

The dessert were huge portions but traded taste for doodles just of sugar
We just had such high hopes walking in, lovely people but sorry food to avoid.

The restaurant had a nice and tranquil feel but we were sat next to a noisy group of men. The manager kept coming with tasty extras and the food was superb so that made up for it. We did pay a handsome amount for 6 people but that was expected for the high quality food.

We appreciated the little extras from how salad dressing was served on the side to the creme brûlée presentation! Our service was great and we have already recommended this restaurant to others!

Ordered a lobster tail with my steak for the classic surf and turf. The first bite of the lobster tail almost sent me to the restroom. It was full of lye. If you don’t know what lye tastes like... go to a Scandinavian restaurant and order lutefisk. I’m from Minnesota and definitely know what the vile substance that is lye tastes like. We’ve been to Fish Bones several times during visits to Orlando and have never had a problem like this before. Not only was the lobster vile, it didn’t come out with my meal. When I reminded our waitress about it she said she’d check on it. 15 minutes later it arrived with the explanation that the kitchen thought it was supposed to be a lobster appetizer... which was total BS because why didn’t the appetizer ever arrive at our table either. Completely disappointed and won’t return next time we’re in Orlando.

Amazing ambiance, service, and of course, food. I almost always get the specials because they're often something off the beaten path. I had trigger fish with a lump crab sauce that was to die for. Their normal menu offerings are no less amazing, and well worth every penny.
