We all loved the dining experience of that evening. The selected food and wine were great, atmosphere and ambience was cheerful, service(waiter) was quit friendly and professional, perfect for special occasions or just a feel-good evening alike. :):):)

Good food and great service. It is noisy but it is small so this can't be helped.
We were given Port complimentary at the end of our meal which is a nice gesture but it would be better to have a choice of liqueur as not everyone likes port. Bailey's would be good especially if you are having a coffee.

The food was good and the dinning area was very nice and quiet. Had a open kitchen when you walked to the washroom. Everything was good, but the portion could be a little bigger

As always, a great experience...from service to presentation to overall quality. The menu has recently been updated. Personal favorites include the beet salad and brussel sprout apps as well as their daily soup, for main the Artic Char...really any of the mains...the Lindt Chocolate Peanut butter dessert to delicious.

Excellent menu. Was worried about the heavily influenced Portuguese wine menu but drank a red that knocked our Sox off. Fantastic service. Hot, delicious food. Will go back again and again. Try the Shrimp linguine and the truffle butter with the fresh in house made Focaccia was to die for. I can’t say enough good things. Try it!

Our server was great...the food was excellent...but we were surprised to see a new menu that had far less choice than before. Oddly, there were very few fish dishes on the new menu at Fishbone.
I was told that the Aurora menu changed as well and I`m really wondering why my favorite fish/seafood restaurant is no longer a fish/seafood restaurant....it is now a more varied restaurant with about 3 fish entrees...no more Paella and only 1 pasta with fish entrée. That is disappointing.

Another wonderful dinner at Fishbone Bistro! We have been going since it opened and are never disappointed. The food is great, the service is great, and the staff is amazing. There is no need to go downtown for a great meal when you have Fishbone in your community.

First time visitors!! Everything about the night was spot on ! Food was outstanding, octopus cooked perfectly for a starter, olives and pickles were a lovely nibble. If you have a hankering for fish this is the place to go. The whole fish is divine , you will not find a better preparation anywhere. Even the chickpea side is outstanding. My husband had the scallops and they were fantastic as well. Stouffville is very lucky to have Fishbone. It’s worth the drive from much further away !!!!

Food was great and service was excellent. I don’t normally eat it but their brussel sprouts app was probably the best I’ve had. I would also recommend the seared sea scallops. Definitely will be returning to try more dishes.

From the moment we walked in, we received top notch service. Our drinks were really good (Old Fashioned and Blueberry Mojito). Our Appitizer was a great way to start off the meal (Double Fried Fries). Our Main Entrees were great (Bay Scallops with Risotto and Mushroom Linguine). Dessert was the perfect ending to our meal. I was even able to get the playlist from our server. If you're looking for a good restaurant in the area Fishbone should be #1 on your list!

This is a great location for those in Stouffville looking for a nice restaurant. We enjoyed the food as usual, the flavor, serving size and value was all good. However, overall I would only give this restaurant a 3/5- it was ok. But considering the amount of money we spent I would have like to have left feeling better about the dining experience. Our server took 20 minutes to get us drinks (including water). She didn’t do anything particular wrong but she did absolutely nothing to make it an enjoyable dining experience and doing the bare minimum isn’t enough to keep my business. We came from Markham to celebrate a birthday ( our server did not acknowledge it). Fishbone can’t rely only on good food to keep its customers, next time I will celebrate a family occasion elsewhere.
