Don't waste your money at Fish Bones, it is a complete waste of money, time and food quality is poor! – My husband and I live in Pittsburgh and we travel to Orlando all the time where found Fish Bones restaurant 5 years ago. We have been coming by ourselves, with our children and with our family at least 3 times a year for those 5 years. We came into town and had dinner there Thursday night--delightful server and meal and great wine. We had dinner there again Friday night (with 5100 restaurants in town and us going back again....one would think it is really good.....); well....it was a complete disaster. Our server was poor. Our salads came out and before we had finished our salads, our food was there and our server was just rushing us out (turning the table over for their 7:00 rush?). Next, my ($40.00) fish came out cold; my broccoli was cold as was the lime butter. I asked the server to please take it back and warm it up and she did; my husband finished his dinner before my fish came back and they forgot my broccoli; I attempted to eat the sea bass but it was filled with some fat-like substance that was nasty; I had to ask again for my broccoli and dinner was completely finished when it returned; I complained to the server and she just treated me like any customer--not one who had spent over $250 in two days on dinners--well I asked for the manager, Collene, who also just blew us off; I called in for her manager who I was told was in the kitchen....needless to say, we will not be back. I was treated like I would be expected to be treated at a Burger King or Wendy's restaurant--not very well. With that many restaurants in town, Fish Bones can treat people like they don't matter, but one day their people will dry up and so will their business. Don't waste your money; Go to another restaurant; they just don't care about you so why bother to care about them. I am very upset and will not take my customers there, will not take my family members there, and certainly my husband and I will never go there again!!
GREAT FOOD AND GREAT CUST SERVICE. – EVERY TWO TO THREE YEARS WE GO TO VISIT OUR FAMILY THAT LIVE IN THE AREA AND WE MAKE IT A POINT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ALWAYS EAT AT FISHBONES. THESE FOLKS DO IT RIGHT WITH EXCELLENT SERVICE, FINE FOOD, AND ALWAY A VERY PLEASENT ATMOSPHERE.
THE TIMES THAT WE HAVE BEEN THERE WE ALWAYS ARE WELCOMED BY THE MANAGER COLLEEN WHO IS ALWAYS VERY PLEASENT AND PROFESIONAL.
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND FISHBONES WHEN WE HEAR THAT ANYONE IS GOING TO ORLANDO.
WE WILL BE GOING BACK ON OUR NEXT TRIP THERE.
Poor customer service, over crowded, parking terrible – 1st time there, parking was horrible I had to park across the street. About 20-25 minute wait for a table 10-15 before a waiter even stopped to ask if I wanted a drink, took 10- minutes to get the drink. After I got my drink I literally had to stop another waiter just to have my order taken. Very dissapointing, poor service I left didn't even get to try the food.
Try to go every year ! – This is a great resturant - and yes they do try to get you in-&-out and, yes, you may have to send back a plate that is under cooked & they can get slammed just like anyplace. And I would not recommend it for cocktails - if you want to get blitzed - go somewhere eles. But the food is good - great steaks & really good escargot, generous portions and I would say it is one of the best resturatns in Orlando.
Disappointed – Decent food & the Atmosphere was nice in the Bar area. Slow Service & Poor Attitudes of the wait-staff and Hostess. "They move you fast and pack you in like cattle." ( Do not get the All-you-can-eat-shrimp, you'll never get seconds and make sure you ask about the prices on the specials if you plan to keep your meal under $50). 12 people in our party and after the conclusion of our meal we were told that FishBones had a "No check Splitting Policy". After 30 minutes of arguing with the waiter and Management staff about it not being posted on the door or any menu, we were given a calculator and told to split it ourselves. Next visit to Orlando, we're skipping FishBones.
Fish Bones Experience – Very good steak and seafood. Excellent appetizers and deserts. Generous portions are served so bring an empty stomach. My wife and I always make it a point to dine at Fish Bones when we go to Orlando which is usually twice a year. Make sure that you have reservations.
Favorite Place – This is the favorite place for both my wife and me. Both, the seafood and the steaks are excellent. The variety and alternatives of dishes is really an A plus. You can also ask for your own combination of food. The wine list is OK. The service is fantastic.
Unprofessional- – We stopped there for a quick bite to eat and a drink. We asked to be seated at the bar and just wanted some appitizers. The hots was quite rude and showed us a menu without any appitizers in it. He refused to answer any questions and was quite ignorant.
Pretty Good – I wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived as I had never eaten there before. We had a very large party of 25 and that sometimes can be difficult to handle. Our servers were patient and very nice. Food surprisingly all came out just about at the same time with maybe just a couple of minutes difference on each end. Steak was purfect and lobster tail wonderful. Overall good experience. Not a romantic restaurant if thats what you are looking for.
HORRIBLE – took my family for dinner, and we virtually took a few bites a piece and asked for the check, my wife had swordfish that was cold in the middle due to not being cooked, i had the chilean sea bass and it was literally raw in the middle, the waitress didnt even bother to ask us how the food was, she just took our money and said good bye. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE!!!!
