Another great night at the Fishbone. The scallop special was heavenly. The red house wine was perfect. The portion sizes, quality, menu choices...all perfect and well worth the cost.

This was a gift from our daughter for a Date Night with my beautiful hard-working wife, Anita.
It was a very cold night but warm and cosy inside. We ordered the Grilled Whole Seabass and The Paella. Thew were very well seasoned and very tasty and we shared like we normally do. We finished our lovely meal with Cream Brulee and Double Espressos. Lovely Date Night. Will do this again at their Waterfront location in the Summer.

My family and I recently made a reservation at fishbone stouffville this past weekend for my fathers birthday. Our servers name I believe was Natalie. We all have some allergies & she was able to really help us out with ease. Without us feeling as though we were a bother. We really got along well with her. She was awesome and a pleasure to have as our server. The atmosphere is warm, cozy & inviting. The food was clean & delicious. Definitely will be recommending !
Make sure to book your reservation early enough as they close at 9pm on weekends.

Had a New Years weekend meal with some family members and it was excellent! Fishbone takes time to search out top quality ingredients and present them in an interesting way. Most of us had fish (lots of choice). One diner who doesn't eat fish felt that there was not a lot of choice for him. All in all a great meal for a special weekend!

I love the Fishbone...always fabulous food, great atmosphere, relaxing. The presentation of the food is always unique and everyone looks forward to seeing how everyone else's plate looks...lots of oohs and awws!! We had a few friends that don't eat seafood but found the steak and chicken absolutely delicious...the seafood eaters loved everything we ordered!

I took a friend for her birthday as I knew it would be a fabulous meal with great service and it did not disappoint. Our server was fabulous and attentive, my fish was deboned expertly while I anticipated the delicious meal. My friend was very impressed with her appetizer of mussels and her main course with more mussels and other seafood. Absolutely loved it all. We have both been there many times before and I cannot wait to go back.

We were disappointed. The food was good (not great, but above average). As mentioned in many other reviews, service left much to be desired. Only 1 waitress for the entire restaurant on a Mon night. While she was pleasant, it was impossible for her to be attentive. Long wait for food to come out of the kitchen. She dropped off dessert menus without a word while clearing our dinner plates. I hold her no ill will, because I imagine if the owners wished to have above average service it would be possible with addressing staffing levels rather than any issues with the specific staff. When considering the prices, we will not be coming back.

We had an 8:00 reservation booked through this site, but they close at 9!
The restaurant was great when we got there, good atmosphere, great food and drink. The only bad experience was the 9:00 close time and the dwindling patrons and rushed service. We went there for a b-day and was our only destination, so the party was over early! Please try staying open later on weekends, Stouffville doesn't have many places to go.

Fishbone is a gem that has enhanced the restaurant scene in Stouffville considerably over the years. Pedro puts together a superb wine list largely from Portugal - wines you cannot get at the LCBO - and knows how to pair them with a most interesting menu that is always brilliantly prepared, cooked and served.

As always, the food was terrific. We ordered the oysters, squid and a special of heir loom tomatoes with grilled peaches and boccocini, and the deep fried Brussels sprouts. They delivered the oysters so we could enjoy those first and the timing the the remainder of our appetizers was spot on and not rushed. For mains, there was paella, grilled octopus and the whole grilled sea bream - all delicious. Would recommend The Fishbone for any seafood lovers - food and service are always on point. Only two complaints - the last couple of times there it has been EXTREMELY hot in the dining area (VERY uncomfortable) and a couple of time we could smell cigarette smoke while eating - we believe it is coming in from out back where staff may be taking a break - they need to move away from the door - the smile is coming into the restaurant.

our 4th time here. a Portugese menu and the food is really very good and well presented. Our server was on his first night and while there were some bumps in the road he handled our party of 4 quite well. it was crowded but pleasantly so...if you know what I mean. We will no doubt return.

This place was a real "find". It turned out to be more than expected: food, service, etc. The waitress was not only friendly. She was informative. We will definitely be back. The only negative was the wine pricing. Unfortunately when we return we will not order a bottle, or 1/2 litre.
Otherwise the restaurant compares to any top downtown place.

Food was amazing, ambiance was also amazing. Nice little restaurant, only real issue was when the host, not our server, gave a quick rude response to a question my wife had about the menu. When she was asked what was included with the fish she said "well whatever is on the menu, you can read it, it's a salad." As she left my wife says to me "well that was rude", and the host heard it. So for the rest of the night she was better. Didn't apologize but was more attentive. Our actual server was amazing and other than that the night was really good.
