    The food was fantastic, beautiful space, and our server was amazing, but the dessert could have used a little more life, a little disappointed to end dinner that way.

    Excellent service, unpretentious, sophisticated, dishes all perfectly executed. Our table enjoyed the Cave Spring Biff's Juicy Red, an order of fromages et charcuterie for the table, the tenderloin steak, boeuf bourguignon, coq au vin and striploin steak... All were excellent. By far the most outstanding plate was the tenderloin steak. You can't go wrong... It's expensive, yes, but worth every cent.

    Stunning decor - the bar, tables… I noticed there is a private room for a large party. Clean and maintained washrooms. Food came fast. I had the burger and fries and my friend had butter sauce pasta. Did not feel like we had to leave quickly as we weren’t asked too many times how everything is and if they could take the plate away. Some things on the menu $$$ but my friend and I had 1 entree each and split a bottle of sparkling water and the total with tax came to $64 (plus gratuity) so that’s not too bad. It is a fancy restaurant in downtown Toronto after all. It’s located in the business section in case you didn’t know.

    The food was fantastic, there’s a reason why French cuisine is considered some of the best in the world and Biff’s did not disappoint! Stellar French onion soup and the salmon was masterfully prepared, perfectly flakey and just the right amount of crunch to the skin. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. Will definitely be recommending to others and returning to Biff’s for our future business lunches.

    We went to celebrate my birthday. Both the Hostess and server were kind enough to wish me a Happy Birthday genuinely. We planned a long lunch and the server was great to not rush us. Paparadella may have been improved with a smattering of sauce, but, overall was tasty.

    The service was excellent, the guy that took care of un was efficient and kind, a true professional. The oysters were not as good as they used to be, by far. The portions of the dessert were very small. The wine was exceedingly excessive for what it was. And, we paid the bead, it has been the first time that we have paid bread in a restaurant in Toronto.

    Our date experience was just outstanding at Biff's Bistro. We had a leisurely dinner and were not pressed for time. The Beef Bourguignon was unbelievably tender, and the Pork Loin feature also impressive, and the Beet Salad had the lovely addition of fried and salty Brussel's sprouts. We appreciated that the wine list included a good selection of Canadian meals. All in all, a very memorable meal, we will be back!

    This time onion soup was hot and tasty. 2 weeks ago it was Luke warm. Beet salad ok but nothing to write home about. The noise level is horrendous and detracts from dining experience.
