French
Enjoy a taste of France at Le Baratin, 1600 Dundas West, with a unique menu and an enchanting atmosphere. Escape the bustle of Toronto in the morning with the delight of a homemade croissant, or take an imaginary plane in the evening with the culinary experience of our French inspired menu.
Food prepared at Le Baratin is indeed classic with a modern twist. Classic in a sense of ‘old school’: our sauces are all made in-house, with a veal-based stock. These days, that is very rare. Jean likes the good old way of preparing food - truly, the proper way! Moreover, there is not a bistro in France that doesn’t serve at least 2 out of the 3 desserts we offer: Tarte Tatin, Mousse au Chocolat, and Creme Caramel.
For lunch, the Croque Monsieur is a must-have. French peasant, or street food, is uniquely reinvented here.
Our wine list is mid-priced and extensively curated from France; we offer the best value for the best price. Or, try any of our other cocktails!

We love this neighbourhood resto. Food is always excellent, as is the service. It feels like we're in France. Not the cheapest but worth every penny.

I suggested Le Baratin to two friends who had never heard of it. It was to celebrate a “marker Birthday” — one of theirs! And they left raving about it - very impressed. Thanks Le B....nothing out of the ordinary that night .. just the usual extraordinary experience!

Absolutely fantastic food, wine and ambiance. They had a fixed price menu of 4 courses for $50 and with a glass of wine $59. It's absolutely worth it! Been there twice and will for sure come back! Highly recommend.

Great night. Cocktails were delicious. Apps were yummyz We had the wrong main delivered to us and after having taken one bite the server rushed over and informed us of the mistake and asked if i wanted the correct meal (i didn’t because it too was delicious) and then he immediately told us we’d get free dessert. So he recommended his two favourite desserts and we weren’t disappointed. So good. The atmosphere is cozy and it was a great Friday night out despite the dish mistake. Will recommend to others and I’d like to try out the brunch. Will be back soon.

It would have been nice to let my husband know wine bottles were half price on Tuesday right away. Too bad we did not take advantage of that special! Otherwise super nice staff and great atmosphere.

Our first experience was wonderful a number of months back - so decided to go for a special birthday celebration.

However this time we a lack of attention and if we ask for a small slice of bread after running out on the tiny bread board - don’t try to upsell on another board, then make a fuss about one small piece - just give the damn tiny slice of bread. It was both embarrassing and not needed for a $200 dinner bill.

Food is always good since the owner, pascal is on site ensuring that quality is maintained and that customers are happy. We are so lucky to have this little gem in the neighbourhood. The only negative is the cold coming through the door. An insulated curtain might be more effective but otherwise it was a wonderful evening.

There's a reason why I come back here often. Incredibly lovely staff , knowledgeable chefs, very good selection of wines, delicious cocktails... I have never been disappointed by the food or the atmosphere. Very intimate space that makes you feel like you're away in a friendly little restaurant in France.

We ate the “Frenchilious” prefixe menu and it was incredible! To start I chose the tomato and fennel soup, for main the beautiful Icelandic Cod on a bed of ratatouille, and for dessert, crème caramel. The staff are very friendly and very efficient. Je vous le recommanderais!
