“One to be Expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

A local at the Cincinnati airport suggested Bonefish as a conveniently-located fastfood alternative. A fish-skeleton logo adorned its standard shopping-strip spot, but the interior was surprisingly upscale. We sat in the bar and were immediately greeted by a friendly server dressed in a chef's coat. After ordering off a fairly substantial wine list, we decided to sample appetizers. Most items were fried, but there were a few "clean food" options. The ceviche was bland but palatable. The fish tacos were tasty, but could've used a little cabbage for crunch or cayenne for kick. Overall, however, the atmosphere was enough to leave us feeling satisfied with our experience.

“Good food & great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

The server staff at a restaurant can make or break a meal for me. In this restaurant they "made it"! Excellent server! The food was great as well!

“Excellent Food and Acoustics”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Consistently good food (my lobster was tasty and inexpensive) and you can actually have a conversation with your guests. The bread was fresh and served warm. Our waiter unfortunately was overwhelmed and made errors in our selections and our checks for which he apologized. Dinner for two was $51 (one drink and shared desert).

“Salmon”

Usually talk this place up a lot. Was for the first time disappointed in my food. Staff and all other things were great but expected more in the entree.

“Solid Seafood Consistently Delivered”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We've eaten here dozens of times in the past few years and call this our go-to seafood restaurant. I really love their ahi tuna entrees, even though they are seasonal (there is an ahi appetizer available year 'round). The sides also change with the seasons and are usually quite good. The house salad is excellent as well. The servers always ask us if it's our first time, but that is obviously what they are trained to say.
