Bonefish Grill – Orlando International Airport

Bonefish Grill recently expanded its operations and opened a new storefront in a new plaza right by the Orlando International Airport. I was graciously invited by the establishment on this evening to try their new place out.

The setting of tonight’s meal

The new Bonefish Grill location is tucked off of Semoran Blvd / SR -436 going south right before you enter the ramp onto the Orlando International Airport, in a newly built plaza shared with LongHorn Steakhouse.
On this evening I was invited for a media event, but I have been to other Bonefish Grills in the past where the service and atmosphere have both been quite pleasant and this experience was no different. Inside, the lighting is dim with brown earth tones with modern decor. The waiters are all dressed in whites similar to the aprons that chefs wear and they were all quite knowledgeable and friendly despite being open only a few days.

My hand model Kha shows off the delicious bread

The first course that my companion Kha and I had was the calamari for appetizer. The calamari were lightly fried and served with marinara sauce and Thai sweet hot sauce, quite delicious for starters.

Calamari! everyone loves the thai sweet chili sauce!

We also had the crab cakes, served with a scrumptious red remoulade. The crab cakes were made with pure chunks of crab meat and was tasty but I did think they fell apart a bit too easily, unless that is how they make their cakes. I don’t mind that there is less breading than the usual restaurant crab cakes though!

The grouper

For our entrees, my companion Kha ordered the grilled Grouper, a white fish, served with a chimichurri sauce. The fish was large and served with potatoes and seasonal vegetables for a side. The grouper could have used some more seasoning, some simple salt and pepper, to be perfect. My order was the Chilean sea bass, Pan Asian style, with a sweet glaze and wasabi sauce. The fish was quite delicious, though a bit sweet.

For our dessert, we finished things off with a flourless brownie, a super mountain of brownie loaded with macadamia nuts with a raspberry sauce and vanilla ice cream and whipped cream.

A perfect ending to the night.

Special Thanks to Toby Srebnik of TilsonPR and the lovely managers at Bone Fish grill for hosting this event for us this evening!

  1. If you are looking for a new seafood place to check out, try TJ's Seafood Shack in Oviedo. It's on Mitchell Hammock, in the same plaza as the Outback. Family-owned and operated, friendly service, great fresh and healthy food (if you stick to the grilled/blackened items).

  2. Ate there for my anniversary, and was extremely disappointed. Ordered the calamari for an appetizer. I can't say it was inedible, but I found it to be rubbery, and half of the order was fried peppers. We ate less than half and it bothered me that our server didn't ask why there was so much left over. We had the corn/crab soup and enjoyed it very much. I ordered the sea bass and found it to be tasteless and rubbery, like it had sat under the heat lamp too long. My husband and I each ate two bites and asked for to go boxes (to bring it home and feed the dogs). Again, no one asked if we liked the food. I won't every go back. I'll stick with high tide harry's personally.
