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

We've been there only twice and we were really pleased with the food and the service. We felt a bit like back in Barcelona this last summer. A tad noisy but not bad. We'll be back.

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.

We have been several times. The food is always very good and nicely plated.
When there are lots of people there, it is hard to hear.
Yesterday, hardly anyone was having lunch, so noise level was good.

Service was prompt, professional and friendly.

Food was very delicious and diverse.

Pizza margarita needs a tiny more cheese. However my tiger shrimp and crab linguine and my husband's whole fish was fantastic. Looking forward to our next visit.
