Have you seen lionfish on the menu in other locations? Please let us know and send us an email. We do our best to complete a bit of research on each restaurant before adding them to this page. If we cannot verify through their website, social media pages, review sites, photos, etc. that they serve lionfish when it is available then we usually will not include them here.
