I don't have time to check every box but I will say - Fishbones is an amazing Bistro and I have already been talking about it. We had a great time, the waitresses were awesome, we had some laughs but above all, the food is to die for. Great food. Don't change a thing! Cheers...Ron & Kim

The food was delicious and did not expect to find such a Gem in Stouffville. There was plenty of time in between courses to chit chat and digest. Definitely expect to leave with a full stomach, the portions are quite generous. We hope to return soon.

Our family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed every appetizer and main dish this evening! The octopus was perfectly cooked and the lentils were tasty, the grilled fish with squid ink risotto was delicious, and the steak was excellent. Thank you for making our anniversary dinner so special. We would highly recommend Fishbone Bistro to our friends!

Second visit. Both times for a special event.
Saturday night groups make the restaurant noisy if you are a twosome. Otherwise food and service was excellent on both occasions.

Service is always of the highest quality. The food is amazing AND we had as an appetizer the seafood towers, what a treat! Perfection. Oysters were always my go to for Thursday app. special but those towers (while much more expensive that the oysters) was amazing. I do wonder why they would be put in as an app special with the cost being so high? Some folks could be fooled by that and think because they were the special, they would be paying under 20 dollars. That would be my only caution. Love the manager, she is perfect AND love the atmosphere. The food speaks for itself and the presentation never disappoints.

Thank you!!

Great food and friendly, attentive service but the A/C was minimal causing us to be uncomfortable. Not really the restaurants problem as we were in the midst of a heat wave. They tried hard to keep us cool with lots of iced water.
We were celebrating our 43rd Anniversary which they complimented with a hand written congratulations card and vintage port at the end of the meal.
We will definitely return but maybe avoid if it’s a heat wave again.

Excellent meal. The only slight negative comment, was that when we ready to order dessert, a large party arrived and service slowed down considerably.

Great place to take a date in Stouffville. Not much upscale dining options in the area, so Fishbone really stands out as a great option!

Really enjoy the food and the presentation.

We are pretty much regulars, but do not live in Stouffville - it’s definitely worth the drive and there is certainly no better dining option. Whether it’s just 2 of us or a large group for a special occasion the inspiring dishes and excellent service have never failed to impress. Good wine list too.

Spectacular experience and if you don’t try the Brussels sprouts you are really missing out. The fish of the day was outstanding. Service was professional but fun at the same time. Personality and atmosphere. Can’t miss if you want to impress.

We dined at the Stouffville location and thought it was incredible!! We especially loved the beet appetizer and the pear dessert. They were really special dishes. The server was exceptional. The GO train does go past really loudly for outdoor dining. Who cares though, we had a happy time and beyond that the atmosphere is terrific.

Had a great dining experience at Fishbone. We had been there before as we live in the area. As appetizers we enjoyed the chorizo sausage and Brussel sprouts which were very tasty. Our mains were paella and the pork chop both were delicious! Of course we had to try the dessert ... my orange torte was divine! So flavourful and not too sweet , perfect ending to our meal. If you’re looking for a gourmet meal in an intimate setting you must visit Fishbone in Stouffville.

Fish was fresh and excellently grilled
Squid ink risotto was delicious, and not overly salty like it often is at other places
Would definitely recommend

We LOVE Fishbone Bistro. The service is consistently impressive, and the food never disappoints. You must try the brussel sprouts to start, and I highly recommend the mussels. If seafood isn't your thing they also have a number of delicious non-seafood options. For dessert, the maple creme brulee is perfection.
