Went with a group of 14 and everyone loved their meal. Salads were also lovely and the desserts were very yummy. Probably one of the more expensive restaurants in town but worth it

Wow! Everything was excellent. We started with the seafood appetizer. Scallops, calamari, shrimp and sole fillets. Very tasty! Sue had the braised short ribs and I had the duck confit. Absolutely delicious!! The service is second to none; they make regular visits to make sure you have everything you need without being overbearing. This is the most expensive restaurant we've...

This is truly a gem in Thunder Bay. My family have been raving about the food here and on a recent visit we went out to celebrate and try it out. We were not disappointed. From the service, to the wine list, to the impeccably prepared dishes the meal was remarkable! If you're visiting The Lakehead, or if you call... More

Was only here with a large group so the place was rather noisy but the waiter did his best to accommodate us

Spectacular. Have eaten here in the past but this visit surpassed all expectations. Four of us all had different entrees. Every meal was prepared to perfection and the waiter's wine recommendation topped of the meal perfectly

On our road trip to B.C this restaurant was recommended to us by Mike and Maryanne from the Towne Place Suites Hotel. We later discovered it was mentioned in the 'Where to Eat in Canada" and we soon found out why. We started out with the complimentary fresh bread with roasted garlic. (they brought my friend a gluten free substitute... More

I love this tucked-away gem of a restaurant! On my last visit I took the servers' recommendation of duck confit, and it was so great, I still think about it! The gnocchi was delightful as well. Things I love: The menu is both classic and varies with the seasons, the wine list is thoughtful, the desserts are luscious, and there's... More

Thunder Bay is not exactly known for its gastronomical excellence so we were exceptionally surprised and pleased when we wandered into Bistro One - largely due to the excellent reviews it had received in Tripadvisor - and had a truly superb meal, great service in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Our server really knew her business and was respectful of... More
