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.

Lovely people. We showed up late, ordered just before the kitchen closed and then took a long time to eat. They were supposed to close, but the manager kept it open, didn't rush us and gave us perfect service.

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!

This is an expensive restaurant. However, if you are in the mood to be impressed and have something special to celebrate, look no further. I went with my four girlfriends, we had specialty cocktails, appetizers, and primarily fish dishes. One person had steak and was rather pleased. The waiter was very attentive yet not one bit annoying: he was always around when we needed him and at the same time did not bother us with unnecessary “is everything all right “ questions”. Some guests were very hungry and, on my request, the appetizers were served almost immediately (they showed before the drinks, that’s how fast). I very pleased with the experience. The bill was $80 per person (before the tip), I celebrated my 37. I am a creme brûlée snob and it did not meet my standards: it was removed from the bill.

Once again, not disappointed with the service or the food at Fishbone. This was our first visit to this location and it definitely lived up to the quality of the other 2 locations we have visited on numerous occasions. Our service was great from the second we arrived. The oysters we had were on point and the grilled fish continues to be my favourite dish. We would recommend this location to anyone looking for a great dining experience!

Great experience - we felt a little rushed as we were informed at the door that we’d have to be out by a specific time. The manager made up for it in spades with an offer of free port at the end of the night.

Menu was very diverse and we all enjoyed the brussels sprouts appetizer.

Always a pleasure to eat at Fishbone. The food is interesting and oh so delicious. Staff are friendly, funny, and gracious. It is a comfortable and relaxed experience and the combo of local items, seafood, and very interesting flavours, provides options for a wide range of tastes.

Love, love Fishbone. Menu changes regularly which makes it interesting but a few old favourites are always available. The roasted Brussels sprouts and the flaming sausage are so good, and great for sharing. Really nice atmosphere. Give it a try if you haven't yet - you'll go back again and again.

I really like this restaurant- a little light on portions for the price overall service was fantastic. Kids running around however should not be other patrons problem. Bouncing rubber ball everywhere was inappropriate- manager should have controlled that immediately for other guests and safety of waitresses who almost fell.

Would recommend and will definitely be back. Presentation of food is fabulous. Must try the deep fried brussel sprouts, grilled calamari and fresh cut fries. We ordered the salmon and it was also delicious! Can’t wait to try the rest of the food on the menu
