Althought super hard to book and expensive, Chabrol is a must-go for all foodies in Toronto. A must-get item on their menu is the Apple Tart!
The food was outstanding, as usual, and the service attentive. The noise level was a bit high due to a party of six at the next table. I am a regular client of Chabrol and look forward to visiting Chef Penfold's other restaurants.
Food was superb but the the room felt like a garage. The more confortable looking secret “trial restaurant” at the side with the separate menu was not offered to us and made us feel like second class citizens.
Had a fantastic evening at Chabrol. The new dining room is elegant and comfortable, the service was was very well timed and never intrusive. We had a top tier dining experience that I would suggest for anyone looking for something special.
The food presentation and quality was outstanding. They are in renovation mode which didn’t really affect our experience but the dining room we were in is very small with tables for 2 being quite close together. Very attentive staff and not stuffy
the service made the excellent food even more enjoyable.
Chabrol is a lovely, intimate lunch. Although the terrace is lovely in the summer, it’s also a great place to eat on a sunny winter day. I had the soup and beet and brussel sprout salad and both were great. Unfortunately I didn’t have room for dessert which is usually a highlight. We lingered over lunch and the service was attentive and we didn’t feel the least bit rushed. Highly recommend.
The food and service was amazing. Fabulous dining experience. Would highly recommend.
Attentive service despite a packed Monday lunchtime. Crunchy toast holding smoked trout followed by a velvety light quiche in a flaky pastry. A very special lunch to support our reminiscing.
an excellent meal with exceptional service from Sam. it was delightful way to spend the afternoon.
Great food, nice and cozy vibe, but the coziness creates quite a loud dining experience. I am particularly sensitive to noise though
Chabrol was amazing! We went for my girlfriend's birthday and it was phenomenal. We had the Foie Gras, Ttoro and Lamb. The Foie Gras had amazing texture and taste, could have had some more bread to go with it but still amazing. The seafood broth in the Ttoro was spectacular, there was so much flavour in the broth. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great resto.
Best....food, wine, service
Incredible food, artfully prepared. I highly recommend it.
Excellent place for a romantic meal, sure to be memorable and a favourite.
We had an early 4:30 seating prior to a 7:00 event, my wife and I throughly enjoyed every aspect of meal from start to finish. The good thing was we were the only ones in however the the kinda awkward part was we were the only ones there.
Food, service and atmosphere were great! Went there for brunch and ended up having fish and bubbly. Exceptional on all levels for such a small place. Will be back for sure.
An amazingly romantic spot, with delicious French food. Staff makes you feel special and cared for. Can’t wait to go back!
Very friendly, professional service; small room, so not loud from other guests, but many hard surfaces. Food was very good, but not "memorable". A nice, intimate space, hidden away - a really nice experience.
Pretty spot tucked away in Yorkville, lovely service although a little slow despite not being very busy at first. Would go back again!
The absolutely best bouillabaisse I have ever eaten!!!
A marvellous experience from beginning to end! The apple tarte tatin with the sabayon is truly magnificent. Finishing recommendation of the Calvados Fremont was a delight.
Amazing as always!
The food was great. The service is top notch. The atmosphere is cozy, great for date night.
Delicious food. Amazing customer service and definitely didn’t kill my wallet. Went in with no expectations, left satisfied
Love this place!
Chabrol is dreamy. One of the best meals of my life
Top shelf cuisine and service!
There is some really good stuff to say about this place, but some spotty aspects too. The quiche, salad and white fish in parchment were all very nice, and the apple tart for dessert was also quite good (defintely a share item - generous and delicious serving).
The mushroom ragout was an epic fail and to be avoided. It made me look up the word ragout to make sure I correctly understood the meaning (I do). What should have been a delicious stewed mixture of mushrooms came devoid of any sauce, seasoning or flavour. Just too finely slice mushroom so bland they seemed as if they had just been steamed without a hint of salt, garlic, or much of anything to enhance their flavour.
The tiny room is quite hot and if you want a private conversation, this is not the right place to go.
Good service - the patio looked like the place to be but was full . Worth checking out, but stay away from the staggeringly disappointing mushroom dish.
The meat item (lamb I think) looked great at the table next to us.
A fantastic meal! The service was outstanding - we ordered champagne by the glass, and they had run out, so they offered us two complimentary glasses of sparkling wine to make up for the travesty of running out of champagne! The oysters were best we've ever tasted - from PEI. The mains are sizeable, filling and delicious. I'm celiac, and they were extremely accommodating... but more importantly, they didn't gluten me! There was no room for dessert unfortunately! The restaurant itself is tiny; however, the patio is fantastic on a summer night - private, tucked away and very quiet for long conversations.
I've wanting to try this restaurant for some time now. Boy, was I not disappointed. It was divine. Food and service was perfection.
We had the Quiche, it's the best one I've ever had!
Probably the best cuisine in town. Some of the dishes are quite an experience. Try the fish stew and do not miss the special tart made upon request. They deserve a Michelin start; the Guide either didn’t take notice or the opportunity of assessing how good Café Chabrol is.
Chabrol never disappoints...and this time was no exception. My husband I were celebrating our 18th anniversary. It was a fresh and gorgeous day out and the quaint patio was just the right spot to sit, reflect and enjoy the decadent food and bottle of wine. We ordered as we felt like it, never felt rushed and savoured each plate. The oysters were sumptuous, pork liver mouse deliciously rich, and the tartine of cured trout, packed the perfect flavour/texture with each bite. Main courses were also special, with the Ttoro taking gold for the perfect dose of saffron with the sea food, and the braised lamb tasting better than ones from homeland. What a gem of a place, and what unpretentious, and yet solidly knowledgable staff. I will always go back.
It was our first time here and it was very good. We'll definitely go back, which is our no 1. evaluation criteria. It's a bistro with a French menu and winelist. The food was delicious. We dined Al fresco and the setting was superb on a lovely, warm late summer night. It's in a small alley in Yorkville, reminiscent of eating in a European city. Service was very good, but with a small hiccup: after we had our mains, we were left sitting for 15 mins with a clear table and empty wine glasses. Our server was momentarily slammed with some some late diners, but it was frustrating that his empty-handed colleagues chose to continually walk by us rather than at least take a wine order. Not cool in any resto, but particularly one at the higher end of the scale. Thankfully - after we waved someone down - stunning desserts and more very good wine got us back on track. So we'll chalk it up as a hiccup and look forward to going back.
Love this small cozy nook in the middle of busy Yorkville! Great menu; a lot of it adaptable to sharing. The cold summer cucumber soup was rich and refreshing. The kohlrabi salad is definitely shareable and delicious! My main of sautéed mushrooms & cauliflower was the highlight and, judging by some of our neighbours, a popular dish! Very earthy and aromatic! Shared a lovely bottle of Alsatian Pinot Gris. To die for and a must try here is their apple pie with Calvados sabayon! Again, a shareable dish to alleviate the conscience!
Inside has no air so very very warm
Seems to suit vegitarian as not much protein
The restaurant is tiny but the food and the atmosphere are second to none.
Paris in Toronto! Meticulesly prepared dishes with amazing taste.
The food was excellent. I highly recommend the frittata. The best one I've ever had.
