Food was good and tasty. Only had a selection of three salad dressings, which I think is unusual
since salads are so popular especially for lunch. The Music on the deck was loud and not beautiful
music that would enhance lunch while viewing the lake. Crazy loud rock music. No reason to
to speak so loud when trying to talk with your friends at the table. I think there is room for
improvement to take advantage of the only lakeview restaurant that I am aware of in Mount
Dora downtown area.

The Cobb salad was the worst that I have ever had. The greens were not typical of any that I have had.
My guest had the beet salad which was also very disappointing .

Had fried snapper, it had absolutely no flavor. It's served with marinara sauce to dip it in. My husband had a steak and it was all fat. He sent it back. They did make it right by sending out a new one but the steak tasted like liquid smoke. We had calamari appetizer. Extremely small portion for the price. Overall, not good. I don't see why this place has great reviews. Not going back. This was my 3rd try.

I picked this restaurant to celebrate my 60th birthday as I am a Pisces. I was a bit disappointed.
Service was slow and I think our waitress forgot to put in our order. My dish was nothing like discribed on the menu . It was supposed to have rainbow carrots and I didn't get those. They gave me tiny sweet potatoes with the mashed potatoes. So I just got chicken and 2 kinds of potatoes. We sat outside with the lakeview right after sunset, so that was the highlight of the evening.

There are essentially two different dining experiences available. We ate inside which was more formal but mush quieter. The outside deck which appears to be primarily a bar was informal and very very loud. The food was very good as was the presentation. Nice sunset added to the enjoyment

For some reason our service on this visit wasn’t very good. It took us over an hour to get our food – and people who were seated after us were finished before our food came. Not a typical experience.

Also – not a fan of the coleslaw.

The manager and our server did offer to take something off our bill for the problem we encountered.

They were out of everything we had wanted for dinner. So I went with the Shrimp and Pasta dish, it was awful. I could not eat the noodles they were hard and the wrong pasta for that dish. They had no deserts left when it came to the selection. It was a very disappointing experience. Now we know why we don’t visit more often. We live in Mount Dora to we may not return any time soon and when the suggestion comes up we will not choose this restaurant. The waitress Sam was the most professional given the circumstances of being out of stock on several different dishes and NO deserts.

We were seated quickly and the waitress was attentive. She pointed out the daily specials and assisted with menu questions, including wine selections. The appetizer (mussels and clams) were exquisite. The daily catch (pan-seared golden tile fish) was delicious, as was our other selection, the flash-fried Cuban snapper. Coffee and monkey bread with vanilla ice cream finished it off. Even better, I clumsily left my credit card in the folder but when I called the next day they had it at the reception. Thoroughly enjoyable in every way and well worth the cost.

My husband and I had dinner for our anniversary. Made a reservation for 6pm and was seated promptly with a nice table by the window to view the amazing sunset. Everyone was super nice and our waitress even went over and above and noticed that the umbrella covering the table outside the window was blocking some of our view and went outside and fixed the umbrella. We live in Mt Dora but this is our first time eating at Pisces Rising. Great time altogether.

The restaurant is much too loud and the food overpriced. No bread was offered prior to the meal. The fried calamari didn't have as light a breading as we are used to in expensive restaurants and was too spicy for my palate. It was served with a bland tartar sauce with a mayonnaise base rather than a red marinara as I would expect. The shrimp with grits was a nice entree. The menu was very limited in options .
