The servers are always happy and attentive. There can sometimes be a long wait and sometimes difficult to find parking. It is expensive, but has the same prices as other seafood restaurants that are no where near as good as here. Their tuna steak was so tender, smoky flavor, cooked just right, and a decent sized portion. Smooth, creamy mashed... More

This Bonefish is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always delicious and the wait staff are excellent. There are a wide variety of appetizer and main dish options and the desserts are great, too. I would highly recommend this establishment if you love seafood. They also have a great happy hour and is a good place to meet... More

This Bonefish definitely goes in cycles. Based on this visit, I would say it is in a "down" cycle. We had dinner there Tuesday night. I had tilapia with Pan-Asian sauce, broccoli and potatoes au gratin. Started with a house salad. My hubby had the cod with garlic mashers and broccoli and a salad. Both of our fish dishes tasted...

Come for happy hour. The pineapple martini was pure bliss!! Our service was over the moon fantastic and our dinners were excellent. Fresh grilled cod w/sweet potato mash and bang bang shrimp tacos. It'd been a long time since we ate here, but will be back soon!

This is only chain we go to. Have been to various BF's for over 10 years. We love our local one and have two servers names served we usually request. On a recent Monday we let our guard down and didn't request one. Our food was fine. The whole issue was w/waitress (if you can call here that) and delivery... More

There were 10 in our party, 7:30 on a Wednesday evening. The restaurant was full. From the time we were seated until we received our meals, it took an hour. The avocado was hard. The asparagus was large and tough. The shrimp salad had two pieces of shrimp. The endamame was so tough, it was like peeling shrimp out of... More

My wife started going to the Bonefish Grill when it opened in Newport News. There is appetizers of Ahi Tuna which used to be of some value and flavor. The price has gone up and this measly 5 slices of micro thin tuna strips show up and you think what is this going to do for me. Then you order... More

We are lucky to have such a great team at this Bonefish. We try to eat here at least three times a month, I'd actually like to eat here one a week. They always have great specials, but their regular menu does not disappoint either! The Managers are always on point and help were ever needed. The servers are great... More

Great atmosphere for family outing, couple's dinner, or any celebration! Food is delicious. A must try are the bang bang shrimp, they are delicious! Restaurant opens at 4 pm and I advise making reservations online or over the phone; especially on Friday evenings.. The menu is a bit pricey, but I feel the food is worth every penny!

My husband and I recently ate here for our 10th Wedding Anniversary. The cocktails were good, but the food was no where near as good as when we had our Wedding Rehearsal dinner 10 years ago. Who knows, maybe our palettes have matured since living in Europe - but we were both extremely disappointed. The service was also lackluster. We... More
