    We had a wonderful meal for NYE. We heard Biffs would be closing and we are really sad to see it go.

    We had the New Year's Eve Prix Fixe dinner. We enjoyed the first two courses except that one of us had a foie gras that had not been properly cleaned (big vein). The real disappointment were our mains, which came out very rare instead of medium rare. The sides were also flavourless and dry. Our waiter was nowhere around to turn our experience around. It seemed like a half empty section, but we would only see him every thirty minutes. We wanted to order a sweet wine for our foie gras course, but he was nowhere to be found. He wasn't there to take our wine orders for our mains; and when the mains were awful, he wasn't there to check how things were going to turn things around. (Just giving us salt and pepper and/or reheating the mains would have rescued the meal.) By the time he finally came over, we were ready for dessert and the check. (The dessert was excellent, though.) We were also unimpressed with the manager who came over to talk to us. My partner works in the industry and has several friends who are restaurant managers. Compared to them, he was really unpolished and awkward. T o make it up to us, they gave my partner a creme brulee; however, we had told the waiter that we were lactose intolerant, so this choice of dessert made no sense. He couldn't eat it. They did remove the mains from the bill, which is why I am giving them three stars. The only person who offered great service was the sommelier, Eugene. We have been going to Biff's for New Year's Eve dinner for years and until now it has always been a great way to end the year. I know staffing is an issue at restaurants, but this is an O&B restaurant. Why has service declined so much and who have they put in charge of the kitchen?

    The service was friendly but poor. Wine removed when still half full. Mixed up orders. Too fast at first then so slow. Steak tough, foie gras awful. We wanted to order another bottle of wine but gave up waiting to order.

    I went in Biff's Bistro for the new year eve dinner and I was disappointed. First no one spoke French in a French restaurant ! Also I ordered the Fois Gras and it was not a Fois Gras, I'm from France and I've never seen a Fois Gras like this one (black and cooked). With the foie gras we ordered Crab which was much too salty. I was really surprised that no one brought us bread during the meal I had to ask and it cost 10 dollars! In a authentic French restaurant they would never charge you for the bread. For the rest of the meal everything was not bad but this restaurant is definitely not an authentic French restaurant.

    Nice ambiance, good service and very good food. My favourite dish is still the beef bourguignon.

    The appetizers and mains were very good. Desserts were terrible and did not look fresh. Our service was ok for the most part. Drinks took a bit long to arrive. For the prices charged, I expect stellar service and food top to bottom and it wasn’t there.

    Steak was ok. Greek salads just awful. Drinks ok. Beef tartar is ok. It’s not a place for dinner night with someone important, too noisy and people don’t know how to dress.
