Beware of egregious upsell. Disappointed to be charged $4 for flavored butter for my fish after being asked what flavor butter I wanted, not IF I wanted flavored butter.
After asking about portion size of $12-14 sides and being advised that they were “fairly small”, we found ourselves brining home unnecessarily ordered food.
The scalloped potatoes were chunks of potato and tasted like they were out of a Kraft Mac ‘n Cheese box.
No service after paying the bill. All water glasses on the table were empty.
No complaints about the food (except the potatoes), but the service and greedy upsell ruined an otherwise nice meal.

We have been coming as a group for a few years now. And I have to say the last two times I have been a little disappointed in the food. Last time the ceder plank cauliflower was frozen in the center this time the ceder salmon something we always get was watery. Not sure what has changed but I think it will be awhile before we come back. And I probably wouldn’t recommend it until it is able to be more consistent in food quality.

Service, food and decorations are great. Nice for a special education dinner. Would also be nice if there were a more vegetarian options. Acoustics could be improved.

Everything was delicious but very disappointed that the snapper was removed from the menu. However, they still have a picture of it on the menu.

I would suggest more slower music. There were periods of dance style music that was not appropriate for a dinner ambiance.

Probably the worse steak I ever ate, gray, salty and very strange texture. Offered us dessert on the house but when the bill came it was only for one dessert not two.

New Year’s Eve. Besides the oysters which were excellent, their fish and other entrées were very mediocre. It used to be a lot better years ago.

OVERALL: (3-/Fair+). This is a composite rating of 4 for me and 2 for my wife. A very disappointing experience. We try to support our local restaurants, but Fishbones once again failed us. We will not return.

FOOD: (3-/Fair+). Drinks:(4) Great cocktail, reasonably priced wine available. Clam Chowder:(4). House Salad:(2); greens were not fresh. Baked Potato:(2). My Crab Cakes:(4). My wife’s Sea Bass:(1); she reported it tasted like was sauteed in spoiled oil. This cast a pall on our New Year’s Eve celebration.

SERVICE: (4/Very Good). Our party was seated promptly in a front room booth as requested. James was a capable server.

AMBIANCE: (4/Very Good). Nice traditional decor.

VALUE: (3-/Good). Food should have been better for the price.

This has always been one of my favorite restaurants, but the new menu changes with a la carte side dishes and exorbitant prices is beyond disappointing. $39 for a mahi dinner with no side dishes??? Although the atmosphere, service and food remain high quality, the cost of eating here is difficult to justify now.

Service as bad. Food was no served as ordered, over charged us, and when asked for correction, they corrected with overcharged tax.
Very disappointed!

Wife and I did the Dinner for Two the tomahawk was delicious and the lobster tail was massive. Our waiter was phenomenal he knew the menu in its entirety and was very attentive. Water was constantly filled and the calamari was good (massive pieces and the kick was just right). Also got the lobster mac and was baked which was delicious. The portions are definitely large so sides can be shared.

Phenomenal meal and great service! We decided to sit outside and the musical entertainer was excellent, but just a bit louder than he needed to be (I would know as a musician myself who plays at venues just like this). Would certainly go back again very soon!

6 of us celebrated our 42nd year Wedding Anniversary. The service was excellent and the food was epic. We live in Orlando where we have a wide variety of various restaurants to choose from so it was worth the drive to Lake Mary and l’m glad l selected FishBones they made our evening an evening to remember. Thank you FishBones

It was my daughter’s birthday party & we had been offered by Matt/promised Shirley temples for the kids, sparklers on a cake, & to make it special. The service was super slow, they knew nothing about the birthday & charged us for the bday dessert that came with no sparklers. We were also promised a table next to a fish tank as that was my daughter’s big request & we were instead stuck in the back & the restaurant wasn’t even busy! And then they refused to split the check for us & we are regulars. Just disappointed.

Great to be able to experience fine dining again! Although many businesses are experiencing difficulties finding "staff," you'd never know it at the FishBones in Lake Mary. Everyone was gracious and attentive. And the food, as always, was fantastic!
