    Everything was nice, we will be back. The onion soup was on point, escargot was good, Baked brie was ok, I wish it was hotter. Duck was ok, I like the potatoes better (I like my starch better than my meat, always). The lemon tart was best I ever had, will come back just for that.

    Food not worth the price. French onion soup was tepid, chicken was unsalted, frites were over-salted, shrimp cocktail was served with generic sauce, Basque cheesecake was just cheesecake. Service was good.

    The food presentation was beautiful, was well seasoned and lovingly created. We had the pork and the duck entree’s and shared the charcuterie board to open while we would have liked to see more than 2 Cheeses, the 2 that were there were top notch. The deli Maura were excellent. We would recommend Biff’s

    I wish We would have known that that was outside seating; however, we were seated inside and only one other table was occupied. Therefore, the noise level was great and extremely quiet. The food was absolutely delicious. We started with a lightly crusted brie followed by delicious cream of mushroom soup and trout almandine. For dessert we had a crème brûlée and two coffees. I would give this restaurant five stars every day.

    The food, ambience and service was fantastic. I took my daughter here for her birthday and it was a wonderful experience. We were visiting from the US and was taking a chance on going to Biff's. It was really worth the money. Would definitely go again if I return to Toronto. Will recommend to my US, Atlanta, GA friends that are planning to visit.

    Our host offered superb service and I only regret not remembering his name. We arrived early and he did everything to accommodate us. We never felt rushed. It has been a long, pandemic-induced absence from Biff’s and a very-much missed experience these last 2 1/2 years. We plan to return soon.

    Booked a table at Biffs (July 2) as it was across the street from the old Sony centre. Canada’s Drag Race was on! You know when you book a resto near a venue it usually sucks because the resto have a captive audience and they don’t care. Well Biffs was awesome! Great service from all and the food was outstanding. So wonderfully surprised and so happy. Great start to a wonderful evening

    Had a 630pm res requested patio, also with my puppy, eventually seated at 715pm. Had to reorder wine choice 3x due to n/a. Service rushed and extremely slow, many diners had long delays in finally receiving their food. Heard staff and mgmt apologizing repeatedly to guests around us, for the slow service and delays. Not what I expected for my 1st BIFF’S experience.

    We picked a overbooked night to go...not my 1st time however my friends was. We had a reservation and waited all day to dine & go to concert across the street at Meridian Hall. We never received any of our 4 dishes We ordered all at once 7pm by 7:40 Also only one was a cooked dish We had to cancel and leave by 7:45. The table beside us was a walk in and got their 4 dishes their entire meal which included a 🥩 before us. I chalk it up to just a bad night. It usually rocks.

    Amazing service, experience, food! We has oysters as appetizers - they were super fresh and tasty! I ordered trout dish for the main (recommended by the staff), and it was outstanding! Was not our first time at Biff’s, and it always lives up to the expectations and exceeds them! Robert, our waiter, was extremely professional, outgoing, pleasant and personable. The rest of the team was great too! Highly recommend!

    I order beef bourguinon at many French inspired restaurants, and despite having cream in it, it wasn’t the tastiest beef bourguignon that I’ve tasted. BUT the server who quickly picked up my napkin of my floor, did that with such efficiency. Game Changer! He first placed a freshly pressed napkin on my table and then bent down to pick up the fallen one. Lovely! I didn’t even notice that my napkin had fallen. The next time I return, I will try something another than the beef bourguignon.

    Bread was very dry and crumbly. Odd for a French bistro as it didn’t resemble any bread I have had in France. Coq au Vin was very tough. Clearly hadn’t been cooked for a long period of time like the true French dish. Wouldn’t hurry back;(
