    We had heard good things about this restaurant, so when we arrived in Thunder Bay, we quickly made a reservation. We really enjoyed our evening here and are glad to have gone. The hostess was very friendly and seated us quickly. The server, whose name was Don, was super friendly as well. He was very knowledgeable about the menu, ingredients etc and was helpful with us making our beverage and food selections. They have quite a few gluten free options too which was fantastic! We had the misto fritti appetizer (gluten free) and it was tasty. Our table tried the steak frites, porcini fillet and mafaldine pasta. Everything was excellent! We would definitely recommend this restaurant, and if we visit Thunder Bay again, we would go back!

    Food was mediocre for the price . Frozen shoe string fries . A puddle of creamed spinach?? and a properly cooked decent cut steak . However steak was very small . Overall not good value for the price. Also very noisey. Service was petty good .

    I am disappointed to read you did not enjoy your meal. The steak is indicated on the menu as an 8oz certified angus beef flat iron steak, served with roasted shallot steak sauce, creamed gouda spinach and frites. It is a very popular dish on our menu and value oriented compared to some more expensive cuts featured on our menu and on special. We did have a 16oz ribeye on special as a larger option. The restaurant can be energetic when busy, and the weekend you dined with us, was the university graduation weekend with some larger groups out to celebrate. If you wish for a quieter dining experience, I would suggest coming in early when we first open. Cheers.

    Dinner at the Caribou restaurant is simply the best experience that this city has to offer. The food was skillfully prepared with great attention to detail from its talented cooks and chefs. The service was exceptional from the experienced and knowledgeable wait staff with a focus on making our evening amazing. There is no doubt that this is the best restaurant choice for anyone hungry for apps, desert, or a fantastic meal.

    We visited for Mother’s Day. We were pleased to see there was a special Mother’s Day menu option. Our server was lovely and was able to answer questions. Although it was a busy day food came out quickly and larger portions than expected! The manager came over to ask how our dinner was. We appreciated all the small details that went into making this occasion special for myself and my mom, we will definitely be back
