Last night two of us dined at Bonefish when we found the Shrimp Shack had closed. The best part of the meal was the special white cosmo drink that was served perfectly chilled with 3 frozen cranberries floating in it. Delicious. We then ordered a special appetizer which was a crab, scallop and shrimp dip in a creamy cheese sauce served with pita chips. It arrived piping hot and looked delicious. Too bad it didn't taste that way. The dip reeked of fake crab meat which was strong and smelly. The pita chips were from a bag. Would not recommend this dish. Then we both ordered the steak and lobster for $17, my sister upgraded her sirloin to Filet for $6 and I should have done likewise. My sirloin was ordered medium rare. It came to the table terribly overcooked on one side and uncooked on the opposite side. The one side was evenly charred black, there weren't any grill marks on the second side and no pink or juice whatsoever in the meat. It was a brick. I complained as soon as it was delivered and cut into the meat proving that it was over cooked. The server didn't offer to return it until I asked her to remove it from my plate and my bill. Then she came back with a cold lobster tail and grossly overcooked steak which i promptly cut into bite sized pieces and asked for a doggie bag. My dog ate every bite. I couldn't chew the one bite I attempted. My sister's filet was cooked perfectly, was tender and seasoned perfectly. The lobster would have been delicious if served warm but after waiting for the second steak it was tasteless. My sister ordered creme' brulle for dessert and requested the fruit and whipped cream served on the side. It arrived with both on the dessert. She scraped it aside and it didn't lessen the taste. The portion was large, more than enough for two. The bill for 2 was $74with one cocktail, and the only thing pleasing was the drink, filet and dessert. I won't hurry back and I am rather easy to please.
