Cream of Mushroom Soup
Having dinner at Biff's left me with mixed feelings.
The service was great. Very kind and attentive. Amazing staff.
The food was another story.
For starters, we each had a French onion soup which was delicious.
We also had the beef tartar, which was...meh. didn't taste fresh. Lacked proper seasoning. The sourdough bread was tasteless too, which is surprising for a sourdough.
For entres we had the steak and the mushroom lasagna. The steak was not cooked as prefers (asked for medium rare) and was over salted (had spoon full of salt in my mouth with each bite). The fries were cold and the dipping sauce they come with was not great either.
The lasagna was great. Had great taste to it. Mushrooms were beautifully cooked. And the flavors melded together really well.
We ended with a lemon tart. The Lemon part was phenomenal. The crust was undercooked and mushy.
Overall, hit and miss. That's why the low rating for me.
Great time with friends. Very friendly waiter and staff. Good wine, coq au vin and dessert !
I felt like I was in france. Very relaxing.
Wonderful atmosphere on the patio
Food was exceptional
Will be back
Service was impeccable. They even brought complimentary glasses of champagne to celebrate the 50th birthday in our group. Food was great. Will definitely return.
Service was excellent Robert our server was attentive and accommodating. The food was excellent except for one of the steaks both were ordered medium rare but one came out very rare. Again our server was very accommodating and took it back and was cooked to the correct level.
We always love dining at Biffs. the service and food is exceptional.
Our food and wine were both delish! We ordered the mussels to start and had the duck for our mains. The crème brûlée for dessert was awesome too. The only thing we weren’t completely satisfied with were the dark n stormy cocktails because the ginger beer tasted almost flat but the flavour was still there. Overall a great night.
My sea bass was delicious. The service superb!
Superior service and excellent value!
Outdoor dining was very good. Food was great and service was good.
Wife Birthday dinner. Her mushroom lasagna order was broiled to a crisp and returned. Such a disappointment. My Loup de Mer was excellent, but her BD dinner was a disappointment.
Dear Carl, thank you for dining with us and for sharing your experience. We’re very sorry to hear about your disappointment. Please can you send us a note through our website, so we may discuss this further.
We ate early, 5:30 and the food was delicious and the service excellent. We ate inside where there were fewer diners and so it was quieter.
Biff’s always has great food. We were celebrating a birthday 🎂 We all ordered the beef bourguignon. Dessert was creme brûlée and chocolate salted torte.
Highly recommend Biff’s !!!
We were outside-- our choice -- so that had factors on noise (sirens) and general ambience. But the food was wonderful and the service was great. No one would ever accuse O&B from being a cheap meal -- but at Biff's the value is 100% there.
As always Biif's pleases on every level , as we all get used to going out again. Some restaurants may need time to get up speed ( from my limited experience) indifferent service so so food . Not Biff's excellent service and fantastic food , just really lovely.
Good unpretentious French fare. Waiter Al and a manager who took the trouble to stop our table rocking of his own volition (we had not noticed), both excellent. House wine punched above its weight. A little haven in the Toronto night.
This was our first return to biff' since the pandemic hit. Our reservation was for their Patio but heavy rain forced us inside the restaurant where Covid protocols were strictly enforced ( proof of 2 vaccinations and tables well spread apart) . Bistro style French food still very good and service efficiant, professional and friendly After a prelonged absence it was good to be back in familiar surroundings. My wife had the sea bass which she said was excellent;I stuck with a bistro favourite of Coq Au Vin which was also very good.
Food was delicious. Our waiter, Robert ,was extremely, courteous, knowledgeable and professional.
Nice to be din-in or patio. Excellent service. Food is delicious. Onion soup, Trout, Duck main entries are really good. Foie gras is absolutely amazing.
Amazing service and great food. We had an earlier reservation and indoor seating. We did not feel rushed and was very accommodating with our requests.
Amazing food and drink! Amazing service as well - Al (Allen) was phenomenal!!! Made the night for us to be honest. Thank you for the chat regarding concerts, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Queen!
amazing restaurant. great food and drinks. would dine again. nice for celebrations.
Lovely evening on the Biff’s patio. Great service + menu. Numerous allergies were easily accommodated. Thank you.
Consistent food, great service, as usual.
Our server Al was super terrific!!! He was friendly and attentive.
Our only issue (and this happens every time we dine out) is that despite the fact that we had made our reservations very far in advance, we arrived on time and there were many tables for 4 available, we were initially seated at the worst table (right beside the propane tank cage)!
We requested to move twice…and we got a bit of attitude from the hostess.
Thank goodness our server was amazing and the food was delicious👍.
Excellent food at a reasonable price and outstanding service.
Delicious and generous portion! Try the cocktails, they are amazing! Love the ambiance and the bar is impressive.
10/10 recommend! Perfect place for celebration, would definitely come again!
Fun and inviting bistro. Friendly and very good service. Bistro fare very good. Decent wine list.
Excellent food, great service - in other words, exactly what I've come to expect from this restaurant.
An absolute must for French cuisine and ambiance. You have to try the chicken liver parfait and steak frites!
Great dining experience. The service was fantastic, food amazing as was the wine. Will definitely be back the next time am in town!
the truffled fried brie was to die for
our server was brilliant
Consistently good French cuisine. Have been many time and the experience and food has been great
We were there to celebrate my husband’s birthday.
There was no acknowledgement of that at all.
Food was delicious, service was attentive. But they forgot any mention of his birthday. Would have been nice to have some recognition. A nice gesture of a glass of Prosecco or something. That was too bad.
Steak was overdone when medium rare was requested. Staff handled it well after the fact. Thank you.
The entire meal was great but the sea bass in particular was outstanding. And we couldn’t have asked for a better server - Al was exceptional. We will definitely be back.
It was for a birthday celebration. The food was excellent. We had very good service. Our waitress brought out the dessert with the candle as requested. I am very happy with our experience at the Biff Bistro. We will definitely be there again!!
