Fishbone Bistro - Stouffville
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.
Lovely meal, tremendous service and intimate atmosphere. Loved it
I've recommended Fishbone to many people and they have been based on my suggestion. Service is outstanding, great food and wine selection. We've been many times and always had a great experience.
Dinner at the Fishbone Bistro is always a pleasure. The food and the service are outstanding. I would recommend this establishment without reservation.
the food was a bit slow to come but other than that it was good food especially the grilled whole sea bass.
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.
Fantastic! Enjoyed birthday port on the house! Delicious food, fantastic wait service! Must go for special dinners.
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 !!!!
Terrific food, great service, knowledgeable staff. Highly recommend this place.
Our dinner was a group of six for a business dinner. We ordered several appetizers so we could sample a variety and everything was fabulous. Food was outstanding. This is my third time eating at Fishbone and I've never been disappointed.
Superior food presented in an attractive context by attentive staff. Excellent wine selection available. Highly enjoyable and recommended.
Very tasty well presented. We have been back many times.
Always a treat to go to Fishbone in Stouffville. The service is amazing and they will go out of there way to make your meal a memorable one. We celebrated a birthday and a special touch with a card at the table when we arrived and complimentary apertif.
Family night out and wonderful as always
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.
New Year’s Eve
Only one word to describe Fishbone......AMAZING!!!!
Great people, excellent food and wine list. Terrific experience and service second to none. Great job by the staff here.
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.
Had the Brussels sprouts appetizer...excellent!
Scallops on a bed of risotto...also excellent!
Came home for coffee.
Asked for a quiet table and got it!
Nice dinner with my daughter.
Service is always stellar, food delicious. Definitely worth the drive to Stouffville.
The food was great and service was outstanding however being a small place and was full, it was quite noisy.
Everything was great except they do not have a single beer my husband will drink.
Our party of 4 had different dishes. The sea scallops and risotto dish was loved by those who had it. I had the seafood tagliatelle, which was not great - okay, but not great. The sauce was blah and the serving was small. The Caesar salad comes in a deconstructed presentation, while looking neat, was a bit of a pain to eat. The deconstruction resulted in the flavours not meshing. The calamari appetizer looked really good, but my friend would not share, so it must have been good.
Fishbone is our go to place for a nice dinner out. Every detail is always perfect!
We took another couple with us as a thank you treat. We ordered house red bottle of wine $30. We were told it was selected from Portugal. Compared to other red house wines we've had, I would call it rough.
With both my appetizer and entree, particularly the rice, was mushy in both and flavour grill transferred so neither were that appetizing. Rather surprised for what is supposed to be a chef level restaurant. the rice was almost like it had been warmed up rather than originally prepared.
Great as usual. The appetizer was a codfish salad that was amazing. My mixed seafood grill with squid ink rice was a good as anything I have had in Europe.
fantasic restaurant, wines are all pretty $$ however they are all high end.
We really enjoyed a wonderful meal. The food was excellent well portioned and very good. The seating was comfortable and the staff were very attentive.
We’ve been frequenting Fishbone for quite a number of years. We keep going back because the food and service is excellent and has always been consistent which is usually hard to find. The staff are amazing and very friendly. We highly recommend this place.
Great meal .... the food was absolutely delicious!
We were there on a Saturday night. Very noisy, but that's the price you pay for good food. The service was great. The wait staff charming. The food excellent except for the Portuguese pork sausage. Nice presentation, but very chewy. Shrimp tacos, crab cakes and Caesar salad very good. The timing between courses, perfect. Have eaten here 5 or 6 times. Your New Year's Eve menu was awesome last year.
Excellent food, excellent service, both are excellent！
Great food, great service. Favourite spot for sure!
Great food as always. Lovely ambiance and wonderful service.
Fantastic food and wine....always is! Photo attached is just one of the many starter favourites of ours....Chorizo. The deep fried Brussels are also amazing along with so many others. Sampled the crab cake addition this last time, and also very good. For an entree I had the whole sea bream deboned at the table with delicious roasted potatoes and salad. There are no salt and pepper shakers on the table because as in any solid fine dining establishment the food is truly cooked and seasoned to perfection so there is no need! We have been many many times and have never been disappointed....the addition of Fever tree tonic water is much appreciated!
Outstanding food. They change the menue regularly so one sees new items.
I don't recall the number of times we have been there however the restaurant is our restaurant of choice for any occasion.
Every meal we have had at this restaurant has been outstanding, and we have been coming here for years.
My favourite restaurant in the GTA. Love it. Wonderful spot for my wife and I.
A gem to be sure in a suburban town. Fabulous fish and a good wine list. Owned by a Portuguese chef who has a reverence for fresh ingredients properly prepared. Unexpectedly good restaurant. We were there on a Monday night and it was full so clearly has a strong and loyal following. Highly recommended
