Delicious!

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

I love the atmosphere inside Bistro One, and it was the best dining trip I've ever had. When we arrived the hostess took our coats and hung them up, we were then escorted to our table. The attention to detail made our dining experience very special, they even placed the napkins on our laps. The gnocchi was the best I've... More

My wife and I visited his restaurant for the first time, based upon the favourable reviews of others and we were not disappointed. The exterior of the restaurant is unassuming, off the beaten track in a small industial plaza. The interior of the eatery though is very elegant and tastefully decorated. We were greeted at the door and our resrvationwas... More

Went for supper..., the app was good, the pasta was as average in taste and presentation as you could get. The server was attempting to be attentive and thought she should read the menu to us, for reasons unknown. Her attentiveness became very bothersome. It will be a very long time before we go back. Very disappointing

Tucked away in a strip mall in an unassuming part of town this restaurant is well worth the visit. Food is great. The aps are well prepared and delicious. On this visit I sampled two: the duck confit and the pork bellies, two of my favorite things... Both were great and the size of the portions were such that I... More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal and excellent service when we dined at this restaurant. The waitress was very attentive to our needs and did not rush us at any time. The atmosphere is wonderful. We were able to carry on a conversation easily during our time there. All of our meals were delicious. I have been to some of the... More

This was once my favourite restaurant in Thunder Bay. The food was excellent and the service supreme. The owner got a big head as far as I'm concerned and the service disappointed me enough to stay away from the restaurant when ever possible. We probably went there two or three times a month. Then one night we booked a 50th... More

I sincerely apologize if you and your party were offended that we charged you $1.00 per guest to allow you to bring in your own cake. As a serious restaurant, we take our food program seriously and our Pastry Chef takes great pride in creating exciting desserts. If you insist in bringing your own food to a restaurant, you should...
