Great experience. My Beautiful date S.H.M hadn't been there before.. Our server Eddie was well aware of the menu and recommended so much of selections. The wine for her was very tasty,and local beer was Great.

The food was excellent and the service was awesome. Literally every bite I had was delicious. I was in Orlando for a week and I saved the best meal for last. I will definitely be back.

I wanted to try something that wasn't one of the multitude of restaurants in the near area of the hotel. I also wanted to try something that wasn't a chain...(Fishbones is NOT Bonefsih!). So glad I picked Fishbone. The service was excellent, the wine was perfect, the food was phenomenal! Escargot, roasted artichoke, tasty tuna bites offered by the manager, triggerfish for me and steak for my colleague - sooooo good!!!! We ate everything we could but couldn't save room for the yummy looking desserts! Very, very happy and definite return to place if I am even close to Orlando!

Outside of the air conditioning being turned too low and requesting it to be turned up several times the place was great. It is hard to enjoy your meal when your freezing. Not my first time here and it was as good as usual. Would recommend.

Generous portions. Service was friendly, but slow. Duck with great orange sauce (it had cloves in it; de-lish), but not enough of and by time server brought the extra I asked for, I finished my duck. Blue chip app super yummy. All four of us loved all of our food.

FishBones is a local Orlando area treasure. We enjoyed the start of Stone Crab season and were not disappointed. Fresh, meaty, and cracked and ready to eat. A wonderful way to end our extended long weekend.

We were welcomed upon our arrival. The table setting was nice and in a quiet area. Our server was very informative, pleasant and made great recommendations for wines. Unfortunately, there was 3 large groups and getting our food was delayed. Our server did bring us a complimentary appetizer as we waited. We had ordered crocodile bites which had been recommended by a friend, but by the time we got them we found them to be chewy. I ordered the special , the trigger fish and found it very tasty. My husband ordered the ribs, they were not the best and certainly not fall off the bone. Our server didn't ask him how his meal was as he probably knew what the respond would be.

As we were waiting for our bill, a patron along with her dog was seated at the table opposite from us. It's a good thing we were finish eating otherwise we would have left. We didn't go to a restaurant of your reputation to have animals during dinner. We are dog lovers but not at a fine restaurant as the Fishbones.

Thank you

The service was excellent. Kenny was our waiter. We had the stone crabs, they were good but mostly on the smaller side. The mustard sauce was not as good as expected. However that being said we will be back again.

The smell from the wood oven is amazing. Even my broccoli tasted like the smoke, I loved it. The fried jumbo shrimp was the best I've ever had and my wife loved her shrimp and scallop scampi with lump crab meat. The waitress worked as a team to ensure we were well taken care of so we wanted for nothing .

Overall, a very nice restaurant - the food was very good, service was on-point and the ambience was very pleasant. I would definitely go again. One note - The GF offering is quite limited. Wait staff needs to be more knowledgeable of the implications of food allergies/restrictions.

 (Orlando)·Dined on October 23, 2017

The Stone Crabs at Fishbones on Sand Lake were excellent. Service and atmosphere were very good as well (special shout out to the valet guy.... even though I self parked he was extraordinarily nice) with one exception that I will mention at the end. Small claws , but that’s to be expected with a $64 ayce price, and imo small and medium are more flavorful anyway. Ayce comes with bread service (poor), house salad (excellent), one side (I chose grilled asparagus, very good), and they start you with 8 claws, they tasted very fresh and flavorful. In my experience Johnnies seafood(same owners) are hit and miss on fresh tasting stone crab claws. All the re-orders came with 4 claws.

The one service issue, the bill was presented with a $4 up charge for getting a more expense side dish (asparagus), the server (gloriann) had told me that any
the sides were included. I didn’t even question it, my experience for dinner had been a good one and I didn’t feel like making a issue out of it with a manager. I just adjusted the tip down to compensate.

 (St. Louis)·Dined on October 13, 2017

Food was really good, but smoke flavor from the grill was a little overwhelming. First time having triggerfish, delicious. But once we finished our meal, our server left us staring at half eaten plates for over half an hour. We finally asked for the check before we were even offered the dessert tray. Sad. Desserts looked amazing.

We were there celebrating out anniversary . We have same items every time . I have the the grouper without. Crab meat. But today they charged for that instead of discounting . Then they charged me for Pana water never received . The third Tito’s cosmos was served in a warm glass’s . I still left waitress 23 % . She deserved 10. We love. This place attend 8 times a year, third time. In 2 weeks. I feel like they put it on me to tell them what I paid in past . But tonight I charged meal in past paid cash . This is unacceptable .
