Bistro One

Bistro One and their staff are passionate about great food and exceptional service upholding their reputation as one of Thunder Bay's top fine dining establishments and a place to go for a romantic night on the town.

The menu changes daily, however there are many favourites that are constant such as the appetizer of sea scallops in a maple syrup champagne sauce or the rosemary roasted rack of New Zealand lamb with gorgonzola butter. The duck breast with the walnut duck fried rice is the best in the entire city.

Chef Maria Costanzo prepares amazing desserts that are a major contribution to the sensation of dining at Bistro One. Her signature warm chocolate gateau with a raspberry coulis and Espresso Ice Cream is renowned and is absolutely delicious.

Bistro One strives to be innovative and Chef/owner Robillard is constantly experimenting with new ways to surprise and delight the clientele using locally grown food where possible and only the best quality meats, seafoods and produce. This is by far a place you cannot afford to miss out on when you visit Thunder Bay.

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

Bistro One first opened its doors in December 1994 in a small building on North Cumberland Street, in Thunder Bay. It was a Bistro specializing in exquisite, flavourful food, paired with complimentary wines.  In 2002, Bistro One moved to their current location where the atmosphere finally matched the reputation they had built. 

Continuing with that reputation as one of Thunder Bay's amazing culinary experiences, Bistro One received the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence in July 2015.

While proud of their Wine List, Bistro One reminds their customers they can also bring in their favourite Wine to enhance their evening out.
