We stopped by here for a nice quiet dinner and enjoyed it very much. The Duck Confit is to die for I would go back again just to eat that. Salads were awesome and our meals were great but overall I must say that the service here is second to none! Wow, we did not need to ask for a... More

One of the best meals that I have eaten in Thunder Bay. Greeted nicely, and our server was most efficient. The menu was innovating. All courses were excellent, but do save room for dessert. One of the best coconut cheese cakes that I have ever eaten. Yum!

If someone would have shown me the exterior of the restaurant, I would have had reasonable doubts. Industrial environment, anonymous building. When you get in, the host is taking you in charge, hang your coat, give a nice table is a nice decorated restaurant. The server was very nice, knowledgeable and funny. Obviously, we were there to eat so I... More

Another great Local Gem. One of the pricier places in town, but definately worth it. A different menu all the time. The food is excellent, atmosphere is quiet. A nice place for a couples night out or a gathering with a group of friends. We bring our kids because they are not picky eaters, but they don't have a kids... More

Still the one....varied and up to date menu items, superb service, fresh, modern, and comfortable atmosphere with delicious food and good wine choices. Not an inexpensive evening but you get what you pay for, and so worth it for the experience. This restaurant remains one of my top favorites.

This restaurant is not the same, the food is not nearly what it used to be. My husband and I went for our anniversary and I was so disappointed. The scallops were overcooked and the meal was not good at all. Used to be great, not sure what happened.

If you are looking for a nice relaxing atmosphere,where the service and food is excellent, Bistro One is the place to go. It is a relatively quiet place where you can carry on a conversation without having to raise your voice. The menu is quite extensive although the prices are on the higher side it is well worth the cost.... More

Met with clients for dinner and we had great food and service in a relaxing quiet atmosphere. Fine dining with quality dishes makes Bistro One one of the top choices in Thunder Bay for me when entertaining out of town customers.
