Fishbone Kitchen & Bar offers a sophisticated and elegant space to compliment our refined and flavorful food. A bright inviting dining room by day for a lively lunch, or a dim and sexy dining room in evening, perfect for date night. Fantastic and unique cocktails like our Smoked Negroni, and delicious smaller dishes to share such as our Deep Fried Brussel Sprouts with Sweet Chili Sauce and Smoked Peanuts are great conversation pieces!

We had a very nice evening at Fishbone, Sierra was our server, she was prompt, friendly and provided good advice on choice of wine and main course reco's. All the staff were friendly and were genuinely happy to help. The food was excellent as well. We'll be back.

The food is great, but like eating French and spending hundreds of dollars then needing to stop for a big MAC to fill up, so too is the experience of eating a whole fish with no potatoes or rice, perhaps Parisian potatoes would be a good idea for you to add. Or since you are Portuguese I love the potatoes that come with Peri Peri Chicken, so what if you can get it elsewhere it is so good.

Overall the food was above average and service very good. A bit cramped on the side of the restaurant we were seated, but that let to some conversations with other patrons. What turned us off a bit was getting a phone call a couple of days prior to our dinner and the person on the phone telling us there is a deadline on how long we were allotted to eat because of incoming reservations! I have NEVER had that happen before and did not appreciate it! If it wasn't a special occasion we were celebrating I would have canceled!!

This was my first visit to the restaurant and it will frankly be my last. The service was fine, I have no complaints. However I find the value for money to not meet my expectations. The portion sizes of the food were not correlated to the cost and it would appear I was paying more for presentation than actual food (their octopus appetizer was extremely disappointing).

We loved this restaurant the last time we went, but this time it was just ok. We went back for the octopus main course, the seared tuna, the paella and the kale caesar. However, ALL of these had been removed from the menu and unfortunately, the menu had not been updated online. The octopus now comes as an appetizer. It was delicious, but the smallest portion I've ever seen. Would not return unless they switched back to their original menu.

I've dined at Fishbone Kitchen + Bar Aurora on many occasions, and have always had excellent service. My family and friends I dine with have always enjoyed the food. Sincere compliments to the chef and team. Thanks for the amazing service! Will be back again for sure.

Had a very nice dinner at Fishbone on Sat., Jan. 24, 2020. The service was excellent, menu choices extensive and the food was well-prepared. The ambiance of the restaurant is quite nice, but it could benefit from some acoustical upgrades to dampen down the noise level, especially when the dining room is at capacity.

Overall a good experience, however when you go to the trouble of asking what occasion it is and I note that it is our anniversary I found the area/table you placed us to be unacceptable--it was loud and right below a stereo speaker. yet the area to the west of the entrance remained empty--would have been a much nicer place to be seated.

The table French fries were the best I have ever tasted. My calamari was also good but it was served with an abundance of cubed hash brown potatoes a bit greasy which did not go well with the calamari. My partner had a romaine salad which was good but over priced. We both had fish and it was cooked beautifully except was a bit over salted. The desert was a roasted pear which was well presented and good but not delicious.

The amuse was a watery crumbly tasteless Portuguese cheese. The bread was good but the quantity was skimpy. Not a good start but the rest was much better.

The server was a professional and was friendly and efficient but not intrusive.
Overall the dinner was bordering on delicious, well served but too expensive and lacked a soup.

First time at Fishbone - New Year’s Eve dinner. Service was excellent. Servers efficient without being overly pushy. Good space/time between courses despite it being a busy night - we did not feel rushed. Food was well prepared & tasty. Wish it had been a little more creative with spices/flavor - my husband & I are from Southern Europe and felt that the food was “toned down” for the North American palate. The ambiance was nice but the noise level was a little too energetic however it was to be expected as it was New Year’s Eve. Overall, great evening & we definitely will return in future.

Had a lovely dining experience at the Fishbone. As it was Monday, wine was half price and we also treated ourselves to cocktails and even one thst wasn'ton their menu! Our waitress was very personable and knowledgeable. We were given done amuse-bouches while waiting our our appetizers. For starters, I had the shrimps and my husband, the flambeed Portuguese sausage... DE-LISH! For main, I had the octopus and my husband the seared char. My dish was nice but a little too cream heavy maybe. My husband really liked his dish. I was repleat so didn't indulge in a dessert but tasted my husband's crème brûlée and it was heavenly. As it was quiet, we had our dessert and finished our eine at the bar and chatted to the staff. We were also given two glasses of port, courtesy of the Fishbone- another very nice touch! Overall, a very enjoyable dinner on a very rare night out for us. We will come back! Thank you!

The Fishbone is really a remarkable place to dine in Aurora. Management really understand how to create a special experience and the food is innovative and delicious. I honestly believe that they could charge a little more.

If you live in York region, save yourself the drive into Toronto. You can get a five star experience at the Fishbone.

As expected, service was excellent, food very good, and atmosphere pleasant. We were seated immediately, served water and presented menus. The waiter introduced their wine specialist who guided us to a very nice (reasonably priced) wine. Food delivery was timed well, and the server provided just the right amount of attention to let us enjoy our meal and conversation.
Recommended for a pleasant dinner out.
