Food was excellent. Service was slow. They debone the fish in the dark right at your table. Kind of strange.

Have been here a few times before and never disappoints. Food is different and appetizing with a special twist. Service is impeccable with a real personal touch that just adds to the experience. Was there for my Mom and Dads birthday celebration and they loved it--thanks for making the celebration memorable

The organic salmon was delicious and well presented. Our server was very pleasant and accommodating.
We appreciated the fact that there was no loud music which is often the case and makes conversation difficult. Lovely decor.

This was my 3rd or 4th business meal at the restaurant. The combination of atmosphere, food quality, and Service is the best in the area in my opinion. I will be back again and again.

We love Fishbone Aurora. Staff are fantastic and we have a great meal every time. We appreciate the sound levels are just right. Never difficult to hear any one at the table. We will be there again soon! The past few years we have hosted our team’s holiday dinner. They have been great to manage allergies too.

I had heard wonderful things about Fishbone and, I have to say, they were all true. This is a gem of a find, nestled right in the middle of Aurora, means no need to travel to the "big city" for a wonderful, upscale dining experience. From the artisanal bread and truffle butter right through to the last drop of coffee, my friend and I were not disappointed. The raw oysters were plump and delicious, the Charred Whole Baby Moroccan Octopus served on a nest of lentils was out of this world, the Grilled Fillet of Mediterranean Bass was tender and flaky, and the desserts (I had the saffron poached pear) wowed. A beautiful dry, white wine from Spain accompanied the meal beautifully and the service was spot-on. To be fair, we were there on a relatively low-key evening so we felt catered to from beginning to end. I will definitely return -- next time with my husband.

My birthday dinner here with friends was a lot of fun! I love the decor, vibe, and ambiance. It's dimly lit at night, which I love, but something to note. The service from our waitress and other servers was exceptional. They were extremely friendly, funny, and thoughtful. The food was tasty too, no complaints. We had the double fried fries, beet salad, shrimp tacos, lamb burger, skirt steak, and the meat appetizer in the pig dish with the flaming brandy! I recommend!

I don't normally go out of my way to leave reviews on places .. but I have to be honest about this gem. The food was fantastic (I had the steak, and my wife the shrimp and crab linguini), and we both had old fashioned drinks. Everything was fantastic. We also shared oysters and the Resteraunt was kind enough to bring us a couple of complimentary dishes as we were celebrating my wife's birthday. They even left a card for her on the table prior to our arrival. We finished the night with the creme brulee, and I can honestly say everything was fantastic. I did wish I had opted for the linguini as well after tasting it, but that to take nothing away from my steak. I just found the linguini to be a touch better.

Thank you to the entire staff for a memorable evening.

Usually eat at Stouffville location. Aurora is much larger with a slightly different menu and easier to get a reservation. Liked that we got to sit next to the patio with the roll up door we got to enjoy the warm evening without being outside. Like the ambiance at this location and service was very good. Just wish the cocktails were a bit less expensive.

Outstanding dinner and the service was spectacular. We came to celebrate our anniversary and got treated with a special card on the table. The waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and even came to debone the fish!!! At the end of dinner, we got treated again with a porter wine on the house. Very impressive!!! Will definitely come back for more. Thank you Raz the host and the rest of staff at fishbone , we had an amazing time👍😍👍

Fishbone is an Mediterranean style restaurant mainly based in Portuguese culinary. They have great appetizers , entrees and deserts , all is special . I tried the arroz a valenciana and loved so much this that I will probably order the same option on my next visits.

The restaurant did not have a record of our reservation even though it was booked at Open Table and confirmed online the day before. I was treating my friend for her birthday and it was embarrassing. Luckily they had a table.

The air conditioning was much too cold..the people next to us who had been there awhile had their jackets on and we immediately put our sweaters on. We requested that they adjust the temperature and they did so after about 10 minutes. (No apology and no comfirmation that they had done so..we had to ask...)

Water drops fell on my head several times during the meal, and as we left we saw a small puddle beside my chair. Probably condensation from pipes in the open ceiling, but who knows. I pointed it out to the manager, who apologised.

Since it was a special occasion, and the price of the meal was reasonably high, I was not pleased by the overall experience. I do not intend to try Fishbone Aurora again. Fishbone by the Lake has been much better.

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.
