    Service very spotty. Waitress asked what we wanted as a side dish for our entrée. She then listed several choices. We took onion rings. It wasn’t until we got the bill that we found out that there was a two dollar up charge. This should’ve been told to us at the time of the order. We Waited a long time for someone to come to our table to take our order after we were seated. The food was tasty but we will not go back After we got home, I received an email that the restaurant had canceled my reservation from OpenTable. If we did not have our receipt, we would’ve lost our dining points. One has to wonder if they did not cancel the reservation to avoid paying the fee to OpenTable. We definitively checked in with the maître d’ and advised him that our reservation is made it through OpenTable. We were able to see it on their computer screen.

    We had a very nice evening - great window seat, we got to have a terrific view of the lake and sunset. The server was wonderful... We enjoyed our meals, the only disappointment was the Calamari Appetizer - about 6 Calamari rings in it that tasted great, but tough to share. The server stepped up and treated us to dessert to compensate for the appetizer - a class act.

    We enjoy Pisces Rising for special occasions and recently returned for a birthday dinner. Had the same server who recognized us and does a good job. Enjoyed a great appetizer, and enjoyed our main courses. But the time between the serving of the two was too long, and we were losing interest. No explanation as to what the issue was. Presumably something in the kitchen area? We otherwise enjoyed the evening there.

    We sat outside with perfect weather overlooking a sunset on Lake Dora. Perfect. Typical wine list- good selection but not much if you're ordering by the glass which I was. Friendly wait staff. Slow service overall. Fried calamari (giant) along with similarly fried hot peppers and green beans mixed together. Decent- too much mayo in the dipping sauce. Special: yellow tail snapper over a mixture of rice, bacon, spinach, bell pepper, with citrus buerre blanc. Fish was pan seared and fresh. Rice mixture was so so- no lead flavor. The citrus buerre blanc needed more citrus. No flavor contrast. It could have been delicious, not sure why it was only OK. Good bananas foster for dessert. A little pricy ($40 for the special). The ambience was wonderful. I wished the food matched the surroundings. Mt Dora needs better.

    It was okay but definitely nothing special. I booked this reservation for our 20th wedding anniversary and asked for a table with a nice view. The hostess wished us happy anniversary and seated us by a window with a view of the back of an open table umbrella. That was fine, we really just wanted to have an intimate dinner. The server was really sweet but never even said happy anniversary. The filets were medium (we ordered medium rare) and the sides we mediocre. The fried shrimp Mac and cheese does not have shrimp in it and the creamed spinach was pretty soupy. Hubs had the green beans which were good! We got the death by chocolate cake and it was good but we waited at least 10 minutes for it to appear. Our server came by to apologize for the delay. Overall, it’s a good everyday lunch or dinner spot but don’t expect a special occasion worthy experience.

    I made a mistake, we got to the restaurant on time, but a day late. Didn't get his name, but the host was the most inhospitable person I've ever met, especially one from the hospitality industry. He could have been gracious, be he was not. Arrogant, and wanted to argue with me. He offered to put us on a wait list, but I wondered (out loud) why the 3 walk-ins with no reservation was seated immediately, just a few minutes before. He gestured to a bench and said you can sit over there, or you can take a walk around town. It's hard for me to understand why an upscale restaurant would have anyone with a bad attitude working the door. We decided it was time to leave. Found a very nice Thai sushi place around the corner and had a delicious meal.

    Having never been to Pisces Rising & reading the reviews - I was excited to try it out and dine by Sunset. I booked our reservations for a party of 4 on Open Table 2 weeks in advance. It never occured to me to call the restaurant and request a window seat for the Sunset. So when we arrived on time and were seated in a corner (4 top) by the bar with a view of a half wall that divides the bar from the other indoor seating - thr bar patrons and the boxy elevator - we were all 😔. We asked to be moved. It was a busy Saturday night for getting out & dining and we could not be moved. I now know that I should call as well if I use Open Table for the Sunset seating indoors. Other than our seating location -- we still had great service! Morgan was an outstanding server! The food & drinks were good! Definitely will come back 🙂

    This restaurant has lovely view of the lake and much outdoor seating . The food was outstanding. The halibut was the best we have had and the seared scallops were terrific. Presentation is lovely. Drinks are delicious - Smoked blueberry old fashioned and the Black Manhattan were delicious. The chocolate dessert with raspberry sauce was fantastic. There are renovations going on in bar area but the rest is fine.

    Took mom for her Birthday dinner. Service was solid and overall food was good. Unfortunately the exception was the prime rib. It was real real tough to cut and chew. The staff offered free dessert for the inconvenience. Unfortunately we were having a cake at home. Would go back for sure just wouldn’t risk the Prime Rib
