It is a rare treat when 8 people go out for dinner and every one of them enjoys their meal. Between the exceptional service, the knowledgeable (and spot on) wine suggestion and the cuisine, our visit was truly a food lovers dream. I am going back specially for the Parmesan crusted chicken that melts in your mouth. When they ask... More

Bistro One, has been, and continues to be the best and most consistent restaurant in town. The food has been great on every visit and the service (which has always been great) continues to get even better. Everything on the menu is fantastic but if there is one thing you can't miss...the duck confit. Had the braised short ribs, fried... More

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
