This is the second time at Fishbone Aurora. I ordered different food than last time. The dishes are pretty small this time. Also, the Pear dessert is tasted different than last time, too. I like the previous taste of the Pear than this time. It was harder than last time, also the white sauce inside the Pear was very sweet this time. I like the Pear dessert because it wasn't too sweet but this time is very sweet. I am a little disappointed about it. I chose to come to Fishbone mainly because of the Pear dessert.

First time here and we absolutely loved it!
Staff were very welcoming from the moment we walked in the door. I believe it was the manager who greeted and seated us.
Laurie our server was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu.
My husband and I shared the shrimp tacos. I won't do that again, they were delicious and I could have eaten them both myself!
I followed that with the Shrimp Tagliatelle which was very tasty, plenty of shrimp and scallops and tremendous flavour, with just the right amount of pasta, it didn't overwhelm the dish. My husband had the Arroz A Valenciana, a paella dish which he said was full of flavour and had a lot of seafood in it.
We were there on a Sunday evening and the noise level was fine, although not sure how it would be on a really busy night, that's the problem with the loft style restaurants.

I went to Fishbone for the first time last week and I was delighted with cozy and intimate ambience, especially since this restaurant is located in a strip plaza. We were immediately seated, coats checked and the waitress was a gem. She offered suggestions for wine as most of the menu was Portuguese wines that i was unfamiliar with but her advise was excellent and the wine we ordered was exceptional. I tried the Oysters for an appetizer as they were on special that evening and they were so fresh with a chutney compote and hot sauce on the side. My companion and I decided to have the special pasta for that evening and that was our only disappointment. It was a seafood cream sauce spiced with piri piri sauce and I although tasty it was a bit of a strange combination. The server mixed up our meals and game the spicy pasta to my Aunt by mistake but honestly that was the only issue with service and once we noticed we just exchanged our meals. All in all I would go back there but I would order fresh fish off the menu instead of pasta just because I didn’t really think that a piri piri sauce went well with the cream sauce.

They told me when leaving that they will be offering a Brunch on the weekends. I look forward to trying this out.

Since moving to Aurora, we've been to Fishbone a handful of times and it's never disappointed us. Food is great and service is very attentive. It's cozy and elegant enough for a romantic dinner while also being family friendly. We're very happy to have Fishbone in town.

This was my family’s first time at the Fishbone and I was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is beautiful - nice decor, elegant and clean. The server was polite. Overall we enjoyed the meal. We ordered the margherita pizza, frito misto, beet salad, shrimp tagliatelle, braised lamb shank along with dessert. The beet salad, pasta and lamb was absolutely delicious. Definitely a hidden gem for the area as there are not many (if any) mediterranean restaurants of this quality. The portions are on the small side for the value but to be expected at a fine dining restaurant. I highly recommend for a nice dinner, a special occasion, date night, birthday etc. We will definitely be going back!

As always, excellent food and service! We ordered 3 appetizers and 4 mains and 2 desserts for 4 people. It’s always good to order to share and try the variety they offer. The service was exceptional, much better than a lot of high end downtown restaurants. This is by far one of my favourite restaurants! Highly recommended!

3 of us ordered the fish and it was very thin with a very oily topping and bottom. I finally asked for bread to absorb some of the oil and toast was brought out,l. Overall was not a great meal.

Omed was our server for the second time and he is wonderful. On both occasions he was attentive funny knowledgeable and the timing was perfect.

Fishbone is one of our favorites. The food is always wonderful and creative and the service is great. The duck leg confit was sooooo good!

the first time I was at the restaurant I ordered salmon. It was dry. The portion was very small and the price too high. The second time, I ordered French Pizza - it was very good and I shared with the table. Would have ordered the salmon again - but for the quality and price, decided not to. We do like the restaurant and the service is good. My friends enjoyed their meals very much! Would go back again but am cautious about food choices and value. My friends and I have a lot of stress in our lives right now and the last thing we want to do is to be disappointed in food or having to complain about it. Thanks until next time.

Well crafted food,
I visited here several times, and whatever we tried, it was perfect.

Appetizers are great, mussels, oysters, bread.
The meet shank is pretty good, I tried the fish (5 star if you are a seafoody).

Awesome place

Came for a Sunday night date night. Tomato fennel soup special was excellent. We also enjoyed the steak and the spicy pizza. The steak was changed up from when I last had it with fingerling potatoes and a delicious caper relish. We started with the Brussels sprouts which are our favourite appetizer and didn't disappoint with a very generous portion. This is our second visit to the Aurora location and we really enjoy the spacious dining room, the bar seating for a before dinner drink and the excellent service. We will be back.

After finally getting a reservation to this place after 3 attempts, I can see why they are so busy. Delicious food, good portions, exceptional service and nice ambiance. Not the cheapest place to eat but well worth it in my opinion based on how they treated us and the quality of food. Perfect score, I will definitely go back and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes seafood.

Took my husband there for his birthday (with our teen daughter). We were greeted warmly, and the manager was super friendly, and acknowledged the special occasion and my reservation notes on opentable. Our server was also excellent! Ambiance was just right, nice cross section of families, couples, older and younger people. Will definitely go again with our older son when he’s home from school. A nice experience for the burbs, had a nice destination feel to it as well. 5 stars!
