Cream of Mushroom Soup
Our server was a lovely woman... her name started with an L. Buck a shuck and half off wine Wednesday was the best! Didn’t feel rushed at all!
Food was ok.
Lovely evening on patio! Great to be out again. Good food and very good service. O & B restaurants never disappoint.
My favourite place to dine, time and again. Among the best French cuisine in Toronto.
Great place and really enjoyed food and the atmosphere
Outstanding from start to finish. Details matter. They acknowledged that it was a special occasion ; they went out of their way to make us feel welcome and safe during the phase 2 covid 19 re-opening and they provided courteous and efficient service including a surprise free dessert. The food was exceptional/ fois gras, beef tartare, canard confit and steakes frites topped off with a nice bottle of red. Highly recommended.
Food wasn't the best, did not enjoy the charcuterie or lamb burger. Service and ambience was great.
The staff are outstanding and very eager to accommodate your preferences. It's one of our favourite go-to places any time.
First restaurant meal since COVID-19 shutdown. Could not have chosen a better place. Classic French food well presented. Excellent service and appropriate precautions.
Amazing service. So friendly and welcoming. Delicious food. The strawberry crepe dessert, OMG!!! And inspite of us running half hour late after last call, their willingness to keep the kitchen open for us to provide such a wonderful service was just so remarkable of them. First time patron at the restaurant, definitely wont be the last time. Thank you to everybody there.
Great Service. Great food. The prix fixe menu is always tasty. Get the Mushroom soup , amazing
Service was brilliant as was the meal!
Birthday celebration with family
Good food, but not inexpensive for everyday dining. Half price wines on Wednesdays was nice but unfortunately they did not have the 2 wines we would have chosen, so we had to go to the full price wine list.
Will be coming back again and again.
group of 3, beef bourguignon was excellent, oysters excellent, service great.
French onion was great, the hat chicken was incredible!
Food was awful. For the owner to be a critic, he should spend time at his own restaurant. I ordered truite and it came out rm temp and the potatoes cold. They put so much sauce which was watery and it made it into a soup. My daughter had spaghetti and it came out dry and when i asked the server if spicy she said no well the dish is very spicy and we had to send back to kitchen. We should have known it was a thumbs down when arriving at 730pm on a sat night and the place was 1/4 full.
Location is good, food is moderate, however the servers try to clear your table a lot to push for the dessert menu... Was having a chat and catching up with a friend, was annoying to be interrupted so many times.
Al, our waiter was very engaging. The Beef Bourguignon was tasty, if not a bit pricey for what was served. (I was not paying!). I did enjoy your Biff's Red house wine. (Why no House White?)
Excellent food, quiet ambience, good decor
This is one of our fave locals, so have reviewed it on several occasions over the years!
It is generally a nice experience with friendly wait staff, good food and a traditional French bistro ambience!
So we had a nice evening. The service was a bit mixed. My wife loves rare tuna but, if it comes with fries as this one does, she always requests less fries and more veggies. Didn’t happen!!
Good selection of wines by the glass.
We ordered two Flat Iron steak dinners and they were extremely salty
Service was great - steak was very tender. Got us through in time for the show.
A wonderful spot for a pre-show meal. Our party of six enjoyed the entire experience. Our server was keenly aware of our time constraints and made sure appies, cocktails, mains and wine were served in good time. We felt very well taken care of!
Steak tartare was horrible - who puts pickles in that? My main (trout) was ice cold, and the replacement overcooked and my husband's mussels were tiny and dry. very disappointed in the food but our server was lovely and we loved the lighting and music. It was my husband's 55th birthday so they gave him a little mini dessert platter at the end which was thoughtful.
But I wouldn't eat there again - for the price the food was mediocre at best.
I've been there seveal times and it's always been good. A great place to dine if you are taking in an event downtown.
Unfounded pretension, over priced, mediocre food.
Service was inattentive, bordering slack.
Favourite restaurant for my family when visiting Toronto; really enjoy dining at the bar, tasting several of their offerings to share with my family. Love their oysters.
I am a big fan of Biff's. It never disappoints. I had the duck confit and it was absolutely delicious. It was my first time eating duck and I'm glad that I went for it. As always, the staff was superb. I will be back!
Outstanding service and high quality food.
Our server was fantastic, attentive and fun. The food was amazing. My wife and I had a wonderful Valentines. Thank you Biff’s!
