FishBones has always been one of my favorite seafood restaurants. Menu Choices have always been ample and the captured flavors in the entrees is superb. More importantly, the service level of the staff is second to none.
Definitely a restaurant worthy of high praise.

We had a party of six, a celebration dinner. Our waiter, Michael, seemed too busy to supply us with water when glasses were empty throughout the evening. He would not clear our table after each course, but wait for the next course to do it. He also was also slightly abrasive in his tone of voice.

service was great . i had the Porterhouse and it was one of the best i have ever had there or Charlies, but my son had the bone in ribeye and i have never had a steak that is smelled and tasted soured almost stunk next to the bone! that would be my only complaint about the dinner. that would be why i said good across the board.
if i go again i would not suggest the bone in ribeye!

I've been to this Fishbones many times over the last 4 years. Seems like recently they have significantly improved the overall customer experience, including a improvement in the food and friendliness. This time I dined on the prime rib ($40) and it was very good. I would definitely order this again and recommend it over any of the grilled steaks. My dinning partner had the trigger fish ($44). It was nicely prepared but for the high price definitely expected to see a bigger portion and some sort of side accompaniment.

We enjoyed a nice evening out. Celebrating the born dates of my three oldest sons and my God sister’s husband (apparently Virgos rule the world). We had a a great waiter named Daniel who put on his photographer hat before the evening was over. We feasted on lobster Mac and cheese, escargot, calamari, roasted artichoke, gourmet blue cheese kettle chips, and sushi. That was just for starters. By the time our salads and entrees of lamb chops, whole snapper, filet mignon, pork chops, and fried shrimp arrived we were asking for the check and a wheel chair to get carted to the car. This was more than a redemption from the 1 questionable experience out of the 40+ visits over the past 8 years that we have been patrons. Overall this still remains my favorite restaurant in Central Florida.

I have frequented many top level restaurants and currently enjoy the value received from the Magical Dining $37 experience. My girlfriend and I have selected 10 of the finest restaurants in the 6 weeks of the Magical Dining so that is my point of reference and comparison to our September 12 birthday dining at Fish Bones in Lake Mary.
I received a call from the Managing Partner, Matt on Monday September 13 and left a message requesting feedback from our experience. I felt this was a sincere inquiry so I returned his call 3 times and left messages but received no response so I will convey my thoughts here.
This was my 75th birthday so it was a big deal where I went to celebrate. I ordered the filet mignon steak cooked medium and my girlfriend ordered a fish dish. Both meals had to be returned for additional preparation; the steak came prepared rare and the fish was thick but uncooked in the middle. We found out, to our surprise, when the bill was provided that the water was a $6 extra which we questioned but to no avail.
Fish Bones does not reach my standard for excellence because of the uncoordinated delivery of the recycled main courses, overcharging for water and the lack of response from the Managing Partner, Matt. Perfection or excellence should be reserved for only restaurants that can meet or exceed your expectations without any second effort.

Not sure why I keep trying with this place. They put a hostess stand in the tiny hall with ten people packed inside. Then the service was super slow (as usual). Drinks came late, food sat while the rest was coming, etc. Not worth the price at all.

Fish Bones has the most polished, sophisticated, top quality ambience in Lake Mary, without being stuffy. Not expensive, though a seemingly expensive vibe.
Happy Hour food and drink is fabulous! Best martinis in Orlando!
The staff is always welcoming, professional, happily working together to provide the best customer experience.
The wait staff all seem happy to be at work, they act like they like each other, and they welcome us as valued guests.
This is our favorite restaurant!!

We went for a birthday dinner. They were very nice and brought a key lime pie for the birthday boy. The only complaints I had was the sea bass was over cooked and rubbery and the booths were very uncomfortable. The cushion must have been 50 years old.

The only thing that was bad about it is when the bill came and we couldn't split the check that made it hard for everyone to pay their bill so they need to find another way of letting people split the check without any problems

We have been to Fish Bones in Lake Mary twice in two months. Our first visit about two months ago was for a business dinner. We asked for a quiet corner booth location, which we received, and our server was Clint. We had an excellent dinner with the food, beverages and great service that Clint recommended and provided. Our dinner most recently was for a family birthday celebration. We asked for Clint as our server and the same booth, and we received both. The restaurant was very busy for a Saturday night, but with our reservations, we were seated promptly. The overall noise level was very high from many guests that were celebrating the evening, but it was tolerable. Again, with Clint’s intuitive food and beverages recommendations and his First Class service, we had a wonderful time. Fish Bones could be considered the top high end restaurant in Seminole County, in our opinion. We look forward to returning again soon and to the re-opening of the Fish Bones on Sand Lake Road in Orlando hopefully before the end of the year.
