This was a very memorable evening, great food and excellent service! Daniel was our server and was exceptional at all aspects, including wit and Humour!! Highly recommended with one small note for music interfering with normal conversations. Can't wait for next occassion.

Steak frites was great. Service was a little slow at the end but we’d eaten and were waiting for teas/coffee and the bill so no real problem there.

Always good food here, mushroom soup app was very good!

Biff’s is a gem, though you don’t hear much about it in the press. We visit about once a year, and the food / service are consistently great. It’s also not impossible most nights to get a reservation. Great drinks too. If you haven’t been, you should definitely go.

Pleasantly suprised at the overall quality. I had the Octopus & Chorizo Salad and my friend had the Herb-Crusted Trout. Both were absolutely devine. The server was very knowledgeable and attentive, and he did not rush us. Well worth the price.

Overall quite good. Server was a tad unctuous and wife's soup was a bit cold. Despite that, would go back again.

The service was very impressive and great but the food was horrible. As a French woman going to a French restaurant I was hoping for much better. The frog legs didn’t taste anything like supposed to. The beef tartar was very weird and the egg on top was cooked?? They said it was their “thing” but was still bad and way tooo mustardy. My mother had snails but wasn’t sure what she was eating. They were swimming in this poor persillade sauce and it felt like eating bad mushrooms. Then we ordered a duck confit and sea food plater. The duck was dry and glazed with a sweet wine sauce which ruined it all. The seafood platter had literally no taste. Was really disappointed overall by the food. The wine was warm and Not the greatest as well. The service was good tho. Will not be going back unfortunately.

Good food and service, well decorated but, as most
Places, too noisy. Conversation is difficult if not impossible.
