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!!
Incredible food with outstanding service. Perfect evening.
Wonderful Saturday night date for somewhere quiet with amazing food and wine! We always go for the buck and shuck Saturday deal with a bottle of wine :)
If I could give this place a higher rate, I would. From the food to the service, our visit was to Biff’s was perfect!
We sat outside under the cover on the patio and despite a good downpour we were dry and comfortable.
Service was excellent! Bartender had to guess one cocktail from its description (Gibson) and all cocktails were prepared exactly as asked for.
Two Trout Amandine and one Coq au Vin were delicious and highly recommended! Plenty of food served hot, beautifully presented really made our evening.
Wonderful staff, delightful ambiance - we recommend Biff’s.
The numerous reviews here were excellent, so we decided to give it a shot. The outdoor patio looked quite inviting when we arrived. Sadly, the evening started off quite poorly…as we found the “covid patrol” to be particularly over the top and invasive (far more so than other restos dealing with the same provincial mandate). We also found the hostess to be quite humourless and stiff, surprising for someone so young. Finally, we were ushered to a very small table propped up against the wall with lighting so poor that my wife had to crack out the Iphone flashlight to read the menu (a physical menu, btw, which was somewhat ridiculous given the crazed covid screening we had just undergone). This was made so much worse when we noticed many other couples dining in comparative luxury (large tables for 4, with excellent lighting and along a decorative fence. So far, so not good……
Rather than resigning ourselves to a ruined evening, I chanced asking the gentleman (who appeared to be the manager) if it would be possible to switch to one of those larger tables (as we had fortunately noticed a couple paying their bill). He was quite pleasant and cheerful, and quickly arranged for us to be switched over. This went a long way towards redemption, as it immediately improved the mood and ambiance for us. Even better, our server (Martine) was absolutely lovely! Extremely helpful, pleasant and efficient…to go along with her amazing personality. Now, our mood had changed completely and we really began to enjoy ourselves. The cocktails were excellent, and the food was overall good. We really enjoyed the baked brie, seared fois gras and the wild mushroom lasagna. The oysters were good and quite reasonably priced….but I found the French onion soup to be nothing special (I make my own, based on the serious eats recipe…so maybe Im biased here) The only let down was the filet mignon, which came a bit tough/raw in places(ordered med rare). Still, an overall good time…we would dine here again.
This is one of the remaining go to French Restaurants in Toronto that stays true to its food quality and service. However like everything it’s the people who really make this place. I love the waiter Sam who is a professional with superb service and is just an awesome human. The ladies however are hot and miss. Most don’t really care for customers and-or hate their jobs.
Amazing anniversary meal at Biffs. Would go back in a heartbeat! Amazing food and outstanding service.
It's my 5th time at Biffs. The food and service are consistently impeccable.
very nice place with the Paris inspiration with french classic music as background ambiance. The Coq au Vin was amazing . I recommend this Bistro to people who wants to have a great time and experience.
Relaxed friendly atmosphere food is consistently good
Staff were great, also felt safe as they have Covid 19 protocols in place. Good is good too!
Food was delicious and patio was nice!
Another lovely evening @ Biff's. Consistent service, french fare @ it's finest.
The meal was superb and the service was excellent.
Great outdoor patio. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Excellent service
Great cuisine & great service! High recommend for any lover of french cuisine & also pet friendly
We had the charcuterie as an appetizer. Signature Beef Bourguignon as main entree and Creme Brulee for dessert. Beef Bourguignon was delicious! It remains our favorite dish at Biffs. Creme Brulee was done to perfection.. Overall, the meal was fabulous!
