We have been to the Bonefish about 5 times. Each and every time it has been REALLY good! You need to make reservations or you will be waiting a long time. It is a bit pricey.. but YUM!! Can't wait to try the Sunday Brunch!

To start my family and I will never be coming again... twice we have been to this restaurant both times average - the only reason we go back is for the bang bang shrimp (although we recently tried Bogey's of Venice and they actually do 'boom boom shrimp' and are equally as good if not better as a starter). There is little to no welcome and when there is its not at all pleasant, the staff are slow as is the food preperation. We had a reservation at 7.30 and turned up at 7.30 to be told very bluntly we did not have a reservation, and after the hostess told us 'to just wait a minuite' while she served the person behind us - did she find it most difficult to find us a table.. we were asked to wait 15 minuites. What is the point of a reservation? The hostess was rude and un-helpful. Peering into the restuarant, it was not busy at all. At least 10 tables were free however all the staff seemed troubled. After asking to see the manager, surprisingly, there was a table ready for us at that instant. It took the manager, over 30 minuites to come over and see what the problem was. Instantly he was apologising telling us his restaurant was under-staffed and the hostess was not very good at her job. By this time we had ordered drinks and starters, and he apologised once again and said those were on him. It seemed we had caused a commotion as then our waitor had been changed and he was checking up on us every 5 minuites. Still, even though starters and drinks had been knocked off the cheque, for 4 main meals, the cheque came to $80.
Not only this, but my visit to the bathroom was rather revolting also. There was tissue roll all over the floor, and a dirty, used cloth in the sink. Clearly it had not been inspected recently or the whole night for that matter.
Overall, we will not be going back to Bonefish grill. An un-pleasant experience to say the least.

Ordered Take Out and food was just as delicious. Service was amazing, friendly, quick and accommodating.
Wouldn't hesitate to order from there or eat in again!
Awesome place, food and staff!

It's a shame because their broth is fabulous, but the four times we have ordered the steamers, they were always over-cooked....guess we'll stick to the bang bang shrimp......

The Venice Bonefish has never failed us. Call ahead seating, always within minutes. Quality and price, always where it should be. Service, still more like a local establishment than a chain. If you are local or just passing through it is worth a visit, especially in the off season.
