    We arrived about 5 mins before our reservation. We sat at the bar because they wouldn’t seat us until 80% of our party was present. We were seated about 20 mins later. Our server Nicole was great! That always helps. Drinks were amazing. Get the Hurricane! Most of the food was good. Catfish beignets were delicious! My salmon was a bit over cooked. But overall we enjoyed ourselves and had a great time! I’ll definitely go back.

    The menu on their website advertises they have sushi but upon arrival was told they don’t have a sushi chef. Also my sister-n-law and I are gluten free and about 80% of the items on their gf menu were crossed off. Thus our dinners were not very good. They had a band playing that night, which was good, but it was so loud we couldn’t hear each other speak which was annoying.

    My first time there and it was just ok. Very loud, service was slow, food was decent. The waitress was nice. Probably won’t return unless I’m invited out. Just because it wasn’t my vibe doesn’t mean it wont be for someone else so I’d recommend it to a friend

    I am an out of town guest. They greeting seem not so friendly, maybe saying “Hello and welcome to Fishbones” would’ve help us feel more welcome. The menu selection is awesome, the side substitutes could be less costly. The cleanest of the restaurant was pleasing. I had to approach the greeter about the bathroom stall I used not having any bathroom tissue. The waiter seem new and a little quite and didn’t come back in a timely matter for drinks and removal of entree plates before serving our dinner entrée. Overall I know we will be back again for the third time. Sign Mrs Jacqueline Mims

    Food was good! Service wasn't good, I had reservations and after 20 minutes of sitting and waiting to just get water. We went to the front desk. We didn't receive everything we ordered and they totally forgot my friend order. Never acknowledged my dad as we were there celebrating his 80th bday. It wasn't good service at all. We had to wait a while for Stanley (the manager) to address the table as well.

    The Creole and Cajun inspired menu has all the south Louisiana classics -- Crawfish Etoufee, Shrimp Po-Boys, Jambalaya, Catfish, Red Beans & Rice and even Alligator nuggets (!) -- plus many other conventional entrees. Full bar available too. My dinner was very good, however service was slow and uneven.

    We’re huge fans of the Detroit location, but wanted to try the Southfield one for its convenience. We were very disappointed with the service, and the jambalaya seemed different than the Fishbone’s location in Detroit. Also disappointed that they don’t have sushi in the Southfield restaurant.

    We arrived on time and we waited around 8 - 10 minutes to be greeted then an additional 5-10 while the hostess talked to another coworker about something with the computer, so I took a work call and finally he want to ask us if we had a reservation I signaled that I was on a call and to please wait 3 x but he continued to ask. When we sat down the waitress was extremely nice. I had called a week prior and asked if there was a dress code because I was wearing a hoodie and didn’t want to be rejected at the door and the manager told me that I would not be able to enter wearing a hoodie but, I saw hoodies everywhere when I was there yesterday and I felt overdressed to be honest.

    I specifically went for crab legs which they are unfortunately not seeing at the moment. We ordered oysters rockefeller which should have been served more firm, my lobster tail although seasoned well was undercooked and my steak was absent of flavor. Our server was excellent and deserved the 20% tip that is automatically added to the bill. I however won't be back for a very long time.
