Unbelievably great food, service and ambiance. Long a Thunder Bay standard, wonderful spot for quiet romantic dinner. The best in the city!

Excellent food and great service. Would certainly recommend to anyone looking for good food. A little pricey for everyday though.

This is our go to place for special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries or when we just feel like treating ourselves. We haven't ever been disappointed in the food or the service. I typically order either the duck or the lamb which is always done to perfection. My husband says that he is happy to have found the one... More

The staff have been with them for a long time and it shows in the excellent customer service always provided to their guests. The food is always fantastic, with great creativity in the taste and presentation. If you... More

We went on Valentine's day last year: 2014. The food was absolutely excellent. I had the gnocchi which was the best I've ever tasted. We had a late reservation - 8pm maybe - and I was disappointed that at 10pm the servers were noisily clearing tables and putting chairs up! Clearly, it was time for us to go home. The... More

This is the nicest restaurant in Thunder Bay. The menu is is refreshing and balanced with just the right amount unique touches. I personally reserve visits to Bistro One for very special occasions as it is on the more expensive side. There is a good wine lisr

We visit Bistro One at least six times pet year and are never disappointed. The food is great (order the scallops!) and Andrea always makes us feel right at home... love it!

One of our favourite places in Thunder Bay to enjoy a high scale meal. The duck confit and maple scallops appetizers are always on our plates. It's a tough decision between the beef tenderloin and lamb chops as they are both so good. Highly recommend Bistro One!

Bistro One is an amazing place to go for a romantic dinner, a place to take a high end client, or anniversary. The food is absolutely outstanding and the service was over the top 5+ stars! I had the veal for my main course, the server always came by to ensure everything was going well, to fill up water, replenish... More
