My dad treated me to lunch yesterday. We both elected to have the prix fixe options, I had the tagliatelle and my dad had the crab cake burger. As soup was not available (that was disappointing) we opted for the Caesar salad which was delicious. I would suggest that vegetarians might like to have an option about the,for us, utterly delectable pancetta crisp.
My father who prides himself on his own crab cake prowess was completely smitten! My tagliatelle was, as advertised, spicy and lots of nicely prepared veg.
The portions were generous, we both took home “doggie boxes”.
Our server was delightful, attentive but not ever intrusive. I particularly appreciated not having our main course pushed on us while we were enjoying our salads. Two other servers checked in on us to fill water glasses although the restaurant wasn’t busy. Good stuff.
We did find the music to be pleasant but a little too loud. I look forward to my next visit and will absolutely recommend this venue.
Kudos for open table for following this reservation up in such a timely manner.

Food was absolutely delicious. We went to Fishbone when they first opened up and were not all together thrilled with the experience. But when a friend recommended it, we thought we really have to try it again.

Excellent date night dinner! The host was very friendly and accommodating, our server did an amazing job recommending our entrees as well as a wine selection that would go with our meal. We had the shrimp to start, and the flank steak and paella as our mains. Everything was delicious! The chocolate cookie dessert was to die for. We also got complimentary glasses of port to end our meal which went down nicely. Overall such a great experience after not being able to go out for dinner for ages (we have a 7 month old). We can’t wait to go back again!

Our waiter kept interrupting our conversations, rather than politely waiting for a break or saying "excuse me". It was as if he was rushing to get to another table and we had to fit in with him rather than vice versa. The special (gnocci) looked gross and tasted awful. Țhe potato and caramelized onion soup special was green and had no flavor except for heavy pepper. No Pinot Grigio and limited wine menu.

Enjoyed our visit to Fishbone Aurora. Food was great, service (Claire) was outstanding. Only issue was the flies (house & fruit) that made the visit less than perfect. For a higher end restaurant, that is inexcusable. Otherwise, great.

I started going to Fishbone by the Lake, then tried Fishbone in Stouffville, then of course the Aurora location. I love them all, but now just starting to know the staff a bit and they are super professional and fun. Great menu and even better served and eaten!

My husband and I went to Fishbone Aurora to celebrate our wedding anniversary and first time out by ourselves in awhile. The service was great, as well as the food. We especially enjoyed the deep fried brussel sprouts and the whole sea bream. The veggies with the fish were the perfect compliment! The rice of the octopus dish was very tasty but we personally felt that the olives overpowered the octopus. The creme brulee was a delicious light end to the meal. As a plus, the restaurant gave us some complimentary port wine and a sweet card to help us celebrate! The server and the manager (or owner?) were extremely thoughtful and warm. Thanks for a great experience!

The overall experience was average. There was a good selection of food but is was too salty for my taste. The ambiance was not great because it was very noisy. The acoustics can be improved.

it started with a warm greeting at the door by Raza
loved the soothing decor as we entered
we were a party of 6
started with a beautiful Portugese wine
shared 3 different types of appies .... all 3 were fabulous
our server was very attentive, very friendly but he did not hover
every single one of us enjoyed our meals, beautifully presented, every dish was full of flavour yet still fresh & clean
I was delighted to have my whole bass deboned for me at the table....what a treat !!
we made room for dessert, introduced to an Afagado treat (gelato & expresso), the lemon tart was to die for
it was a milestone birthday for someone in our party & was presented with a glass of port & a candle ...classy!!
Needless to say ....we will be back
Thank you all that made this evening so enjoyable !!

My two friends and I received very attentive service in a place that let us talk in peace - no loud music to talk over! We ordered quite different dinners and all were very happy with their choices. There were interesting combinations to choose from. Hope to return for a lighter meal so I can try the dessert! Discovered I had friends at two other tables; everyone was happy with their meals. Reservations a must.

We come to Fishbone for almost all our family’s birthdays because it is always so special. Food is always prepared to perfection and service is impeccable. Even when it is very busy, the food and service is never compromised. It has been consistently excellent all around every time we dine there. No complaints at all! Hope they keep it up!

We’d been to Fishbone a few times before. Not regularly, but for special occasions, and have been impressed by the quality of the food and the service. We were surprised this time by the general decline in the quality of the food.
The mushroom soup was flat and tasteless, the pizza, which we had had before was similar this time, to a supermarket frozen pizza. The sauce was tasteless and the crust uninspired. The sea bass was a bit over-cooked but edible but served with what was reported in the menu as a warm potato salad. There were three tiny slices of fingerling potato, outnumbered by a hoard of grape tomatoes and green beans, all of which was assaulted by too much balsamic vinegar, very disappointing at $38.00. The service though, was enthusiastic and professional. Dinner for two, no drinks, no dessert, tax and tip $104.00.

Friends have recommended Fish Bone to me and I finally had the opportunity to go, it was my wife's birthday and it did not disappoint. Starting with the cocktail Twist My Arm (my wife loved it) through the paella and the wine everything was excellent! I must point out that the service from our server Claire was wonderful, she was very friendly and polite, she was a delight to deal with.

Wow - wish I lived nearer, I’d be here a lot! Let’s start with the accommodating staff. I live in Kansas and had a reservation for 4 people, to celebrate my wife’s 60th birthday. When I got to Aurora Fri morning, I realized her aunt just had her 95th birthday, so I wanted to add her. Even though it was a Fri night, they managed this request and made her so happy to be part of the celebrations. On to the food; in a word, fantastic. We enjoyed the smoked olives so much with our pre-dinner drinks, a second was ordered. Our waiter, Jarrod, was very engaging, knowledgeable and friendly, and provided great descriptions of the menu items. Our party enjoyed the octopus (he said it was the best he’s ever had), two had the shrimp and crab linguine and two had the Arroz a Valencia. My wife and I had recently been in Valencia and had authentic paella - Jarrod did mention the differences. We were not disappointed in our choice. The afogado and Bartlett pear desserts were ordered and shared at the table. The entire experience was awesome, from start to finish. This is definitely in my top 10 dining experiences!
