Best Stouffville dining experience yet!
Great food, excellent service, charming atmosphere.

Market fish specials were amazing and my wife raved about her vegetarian option.
The experience was simply perfect.

The appetizer shrimp are probably the best appetizer shrimp I have ever eaten. Everything is always delicious, I haven’t tried the brussels sprouts yet but that is next on my list. The house wine is delicious! Fine touches like a chef’s appetizer and complementary port following dinner make this place outstanding.

The ambiance is very nice. Food quality is good. Pricing is reasonable too. What impressed me was when I seated, the receptionist helped me to take my coat to the closet. I did not have this experience with other fine dining restaurants in the past.

We enjoyed the service but the food was overpriced and not as enjoyable as we hoped. For example the brussels sprout starter had far too much sauce and the rice in the paella dish was under cooked and this dish plus our other entree was lacking flavour.

The staff were not very friendly and made us feel out of place. We tried the fried Brussel sprouts, octopus, seared tuna, and creme brûlée. The octopus was overcooked and the texture was not pleasant. We told the staff this and they didn’t seem to think much of it. The creme brûlée was not well prepared either but I didn’t expect much anyways. Would not recommend this place to any of my friends.

I visited Fishbone Bistro as I knew one of the servers who was working at the restaurant and he had highly recommended this restaurant with his experience of being there. I was accompanied by my girlfriend as we were celebrating her birthday, and it has quickly become one of our favourite spots in just one visit. The food, service, atmosphere, and genuine attention to detail was like no other. Huge thank you to the manager and server for the amazing experience

The food is top notch, as is the service, which is absolutely professional - attentive and friendly without being overbearing or interfering.
The only issue I have with the restaurant is that the noise level is beyond loud... it's difficult to hear the waiter describe the specials let alone carry on a conversation. Even though we live in Stouffville and the Bistro is very handy, we are thinking we will try the Aurora location the next time.

A great experience as always. Grilled octopus and half Cornish hen were both on point. Creme brûlée was excellent. Service was excellent as always.
The flaming chorizo appetizer was great in flavour and unique presentation.
A gem on Main Street Stouffville.

We love fishbone. For starters, the food is always so good. But it goes beyond the food...It’s the coziness and warm feeling you get when you are there. It’s the service and attention to detail and the small things that make it a perfect spot for date night. (We’ve also taken my mother there for her birthday and had a fabulous evening).

We had an amazing experience at Fishbone Bistro! We were there celebrating our 5 year anniversary. When we made our reservation, they asked if we were celebrating anything. We received a lovely card wishing us a happy anniversary along with 2 glasses of complimentary champagne. They also surprised us with 2 oysters. I had never eaten an oyster before, but it was so yummy that I'm looking forward to eating more! We ordered the deep fried brussel sprouts as an appetizer and have now ruined all future brussel sprouts for ourselves because they were so delicious. For our mains, I had the shrimp and crab linguine, and my partner ordered the grilled Morrocan octopus. They were both absolutely delicious. We shared a yummy dessert and then received a complimentary after-dinner liqueur to end the fantastic meal. From start to end, the meal and service at Fishbone Bistro were truly outstanding! Thank you so much!

The food was excellent, it has been every time I've dined at the restaurant. This time the inside of the restaurant was incredibly hot. Too hot to fully enjoy the evening. Also, because they are trying to turn around 2 seatings' a night...there was a delay getting our table and because the restaurant is so small, there was nowhere to wait inside. We had to stand outside which is OK for mid October but would not be OK in mid January.
