At Fishbone in Aurora you can always be guaranteed to have servers who are extremely knowledgeable and very professional, without making the atmosphere feel 'stuffy'. The food options are very creative and the taste is always beyond compare. I highly recommend this restaurant, which I am lucky enough to have in my immediate neighbourhood!

Had another great dinner here. Food, drinks and ambiance were lovely.

Thank you Fishbone for another great night, we will all be back.

I was very happy, and impressed at the change of this location.
It is bright, well dressed, and holds a decent sense of intimacy.
It was my mother's birthday, and we all enjoyed our preferences
of appetizers , and mains, under the eye of our server Jared, very
professional, to say the least.
Thank you very much, and keep it up.

Consistently great food with creative twists. Really fresh and carefully prepared ingredients - always leave Fishbone feeling that I have eaten well but also healthfully. Knowledgeable wait staff who are enthusiastic about the menu. Love this restaurant - have dined here many times and love it. Try brussel sprouts appetizer - so wonderful!

Check the menu before you go as it is unique (especially dinner). Presentation of the food is incredible and the atmosphere is rustic/modern, very nice!
I think they should have a few more salads on the menu for dinner and possibly a vegetarian pasta. I loved the Octopus salad (though an appetizer) it was enough for a main if paired with a soup.

I prefer the lunch menu, but disappointed they removed the fish tacos (had these about a year ago).

We both ordered the fish special, a whole fish Mediterranean Sea bass
We had the server debone the fish and tho this is a specialty fish restaurant we found that each forkful was an adventure in fishbone avoidance
Both servers were unable to debone to our satisfaction and though the meal was tasty it was just too much work and the enjoyment factor was lost
I would have expected a fish specialty establishment to be able to do a better job

Three retired work colleagues get together twice a year. I have been to Fishbone & Fishbone by thw Lake. Wanted something easy, equal access for them as they come from opposite ends of GTA.Wanted something unique & original...not your everyday pub food.

They loved it & they loved the Brussel Sprouts!!

The layout is very well done and very attractive. As well, it looked modern but very comfortable. Really liked the look of the interior. The only two issues I ran into were, I had asked for a quite area because my business guest was from South Korea and his English was not the greatest. They did accommodate me with the area, however a group of 10 people came in and were celebrating some sort of event and were quite loud. This in turn caused everyone to speak very loudly. Certainly not the Restaurants issue, but it is a relatively small location. The second was that the Chicken was a little dry but when eaten with the vegetables and drizzle it was better.
The food was very flavourful and the service was excellent.
Absolutely will return to try other dishes and some very nice Portuguese and Spanish wines.
