We look forward to welcoming you to La Banane.
It took forever to get our food. The service was pretentious although with a smile.
My sirloin steak was tough.
Really a great experience overall. Food was great, and cocktails were world class. I think the prices were maybe a little higher than I'd expect for the overall menu/execution, but the service definitely made the case for any "difference" in expectations.
Pricey but really delicious. Tasting menu was great.
They should get a nicer floor. It looks like the men’s washroom at the bus station,
Although my husband and I had a pleasant meal and the service and food were good, the value was not. We shared two bottles of their lowest priced wine, a shared appetizer, two mains and a shared side and the total bill came to an astonishing $560! We've enjoyed other luxury restaurants in Toronto for that price tag but it's further justified by an elevated culinary experience, fine dining atmosphere and top-rated in Toronto. For this price tag, this restaurant on Ossington does not compare and I can't justify the pricing.
Wonderful experience across the board. Our service at the bar was exceptional, and the wine Chris recommended was fantastic. Seafood tower and basque cake were top notch
Awesome meal! Chris and the team did amazing....ribeye one of the best in the city! Highly recommend the whole fish too. Looking forward to next visit
The food really stands out here. Although it is not inexpensive - but it was memorable. We had the rib steak - amazing! Perfectly cooked, seasoned - perfect texture. The eurobass was amazing - cooked in the pastry makes the meat so succulent!! The lemon tart was also delicious. The meal took awhile - it was a busy Saturday night and our 3 course meal took 3 hours. So keep that in mind. But I would go back!
The food was outstanding coupled with gracious and courteous staff, could not ask for a better evening. Noise level was perfect not to loud just enough where you could have conversation at the table and hear
My wife and I ate at the bar and it was spectacular... Great bartender, cool dude, knowledgeable and good guy. Wonderful food and just a great vibe overall. We live nearby and for some reason had not been by in a while but will be back soon. Killer.
As always the food and staff were excellent. I really can’t find a thing to complain about.
We went there for our anniversary, nothing mentioned even thou our waitress was told. The food was good, the service average. Our waitress seemed pre occupied with other tables the wjole night. We had two bottles of wine, she managed to get back once to refill our glasses. At the end of our dinner after declining desert we never saw her again. We had to ask a bus boy for our bill whonwas nice enough to bring it and the machine to pay
So for the dollar value you pay to enjoy a good night out combined with average service i would try somewhere else next time . Hence a 3 rating.
Fantastic place, fantastic food. The last time was a bit too noisy, though. I could barely hear my wife across the table. Maybe it was the people around us, but kind of ruined the experience a bit.
Terrific Food, great service...super upscale atmosphere. Look forward to going back
Was ok. Waiter was just ok. Not engaging at all. No positive lasting impression. Sommelier (from Santa Barbara) was very good and engaging. Had alerted restaurant of special Birthday of my friend. Don’t feel they made her feel special in any way.
Excellent everything! Will keep coming back
Excellent venue with a fine dining experience with very little pretention. Our server was very friendly, down to earth and attentive throughout the night while also making us laugh. The food delivered on all its promises with quality of presentation and taste. I allowed myself to try the sweetbreads, and they did not disappoint. Also splurged on the Ziggy Egg, which delighted the senses. An amazing experience.
It was brilliant beginning to end and all around! Thank you for such a wonderful experience
Had an amazing meal and time. Highly recommend the duck. Tartare was merely ok. The desserts were spectacular. Will definitely come back.
My second time dinning at La Banane was as memorable as the first time! The Eurobass en croûte is delectable and a visual masterpiece. Highly recommended 👍👍👍
One word - amazing!
When you have great friends together, you are on vacation, the service staff is accommodating and the atmosphere is super funky , how can you not have a fabulous time.
Food, atmosphere, service we're all impeccable. It was a return visit and we loved even more than the first time.
Had a wonderful meal. Everyone was pleasant and would highly recommend.
Best dining experience I’ve had in a long time. Amazing service, amazing food, great ambiance. Highly recommend!!!
Excellent Service, Excellent Food & Wine List. Perfect date night. We will be back again soon.
Great French restaurant, but made some simple errors which could have easily been forgiving if strictly an eatery, but when presenting a s fine dining french restaurant there's another standard.
Great service in an excellent venue. Must do Toronto!
It was a nice meal. I was not impressed with my peach and tomato salad. I would have chosen a different dressing and burrata instead parmesan.
I have been twice now and I love it. Love the dark cozy atmosphere, the food and the people are very polite and friendly.
La Banane continues to be an outstanding destination for excellent French cuisine, with some innovative twists, and a great Raw Bar.
Beautiful decor, excellent professional but still friendly service.
Excellent as always
Love this place. Seafood platters to die for! Branzino is the best!
Thanks again for making our night really special! Everything was spot on. The food is absolutely incredible and the service was perfect. Can’t wait to come back!
Great service, wonderful food, a little noisy. For seafood lovers, many raw bar selections. Fried chicken, sea bass and veal were superb. Creamed corn was yummy, the potatoes were bland and lacked texture. (Skip them)
Excellent food....excellent service. The oyster bar was outstanding.
La Banane never disappoints. The food and service is very hard to say a negative word about.
The menu offers something for everyone with a fantastic raw bar as well
Great place. Friendly attentive staff and high quality food.
Excellent as usual!
