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!

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.

Our waiter was most attentive. My brother indicated that he had a life threatening allergy to carrots and immediately the waiter informed the kitchen before we had even placed our order. When the food came he went so far as to advise my brother not to taste my entry!! Excellent service throughout.

Menu is small but covers all food types. Fish was delicious but many bones despite efforts to debone it by servers. Service was truly excellent.
We’ll go back for sure.

I was disappointed with the quality of the Cornish hen and overall meal. The person I met for lunch was eating at your restaurant for the first time and he did not finish his Cornish hen. I've eaten at your restaurant for dinner and it was very good, however, this time at lunch, the food was mediocre. I am not sure if it was because it was lunch or simply the quality has gone down.

Went for a pre-movie dinner - it was great . We had a 5:15 pm reservation and the restaurant was empty
- the next guests showed up 30 minutes later. Finished dinner and made a 6:50 show time. Food, service all very good and at a very low noise level. I'll do it again!!

I don’t feel there is a lot of choice in Aurora for a nice lunch with a girlfriend but even if it was available I’d likely pick Fishbone. Amazing service.

As always, Fishbone does not disappoint! The staff are warm and extremely friendly, they make you feel welcome from the moment you step inside, until the time you’re ready to leave. Their knowledge of the menu is really nice and helpful, if you’re unsure of what you want to order. The food is beyond amazing and delicious, from the appetizers right through to the dessert. Everything is beautifully presented and again, the flavour is excellent! Absolutely everything about Fishbone is 100%! You can expect the same service across all four Ontario locations and I bet the newest location in Laguna Beach, California, is just as amazing!

Absolutely loved our experience last night at Fishbone. We were a group of 8 that included four teenagers celebrating a graduation. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. Accommodating menu options too, which I appreciated as I don’t eat beef or pork. Beautiful interior that gives a cozy, elegant vibe. We’ve been before and we’ll definitely be back. Highly recommend.
