The food was better than I was expecting it to be! The service was exceptional. And the view of the lake just topped it all off. A lot of families were present and it’s a smart casual place. Plenty of free parking available in the parking lot across the street. I would certainly return another day and recommend this place to friends and family.

Excellent food and enjoyable atmosphere by the lake. Will look forward to Fishbone by the Lake opening next year for the summer.

Beautiful setting and delicious food. But what holds me back from recommending Fishbone is that we have been multiple times - and they have never been accommodating to those in or try with allergies. We find that really disappointing and are discouraged from bother to return.

All compliments!!!!!!!!!
The food was superb. I ordered the salmon as the main course and it was fantastic. I loved the balsamic vinegar in it.
Also CONGRATULATIONS for serving the real creme caramel. We cannot wait for the next summer to visit your restsurant again.

Food and service was excellent... like always. Food was especially delicious in comparison with our last visit to fishbone bistro in Aurora...keep up the good work. Too bad they are now closed for the season until next summer.

My guests had been to your Aurora location, but not to the Lake. They were very pleased and will be back again....were disappointed that you're closing today for the season.

It was lovely to sit by the lake on a beautiful afternoon and enjoy a delicious dinner.
Our salmon and vegetables were cooked perfectly and our waitress was so friendly and accommodating.
We look forward to coming again when you open next year.💕

I am just glad that I was able to experience such a wonderful scenery and food before it closes for the summer.
I must say that I was very disappointed that the restaurant will close so early. September still offers beautiful days and nights to enjoy such a beautiful setting.

A very entertaining afternoon at a charming venue. The food is good, the backdrop is better. I will return and I would also bring a group of friends or recommend it to a friend. Portions could grow a bit.
