Stopped in here on Saturday and were luck to get a table without a reservation. Just came in and got 20 oysters and couple cocktails. They Oysters were great, they have a board counting down how many buck a shuck's they have left and market it down every half hour. That day they started with 700. We also enjoyed a... More

I went to Biff's Bistro for Winterlicious. The atmosphere had a nice and comfortable ambience; the perfect setting for a Girls Night Out. The Winterlicious menu selection was very good and the food was served without a long wait. The waiters and staff were all very friendly. The only complaint I have is that the appetizer portions were very small.... More

Went on Saturday night to celebrate an anniversary, was a great choice. Food, ambience, service were all top notch. They offer BYOB for $25 which I took advantage of. They also validate parking which was awesome as parking DT is not easy to find and expensive.

I went here a few weeks ago with my brother and a friend. It was first time here but my brother has been before. It was pretty busy but got a seat pretty fast. We got the oysters which were really good and tasty. They have good wine list. Great place for couples to go. Service was pretty good. I... More

The lamb shank was delicious as was the tuna. The pork was a little less appealing but I suspect thats just a matter of your taste buds. The presentation and service were great. The only down side was the noise. Not a place to go for a quiet conversation.

Husband and I always come to Biff's when we come to Toronto. The oysters are great and a great deal at a dollar each! Service this particular evening was slower, lots of time between courses. Not terrible just not the same as previous visits. Our dishes were delicious, I had the liver and my husband had the suckling pig, there... More

I went to a friend's birthday party that is hosted there. That's when I got introduced to this place. Love it! They have great food and services. So I went back with my boyfriend. And they had one dollar Oysters. It was so fresh and good. We also ordered entrees from the menu. They are great as well. Memorable experience.

The decor made me feel like I was in a French restaurant from many years ago. The music was unobtrusive old-fashioned jazz. I started with the evening's foie grass special. The foie grass was delicious, served perched atop toasted bread. The bread surrounded by melted cheese. My main was the tuna, served suitably rare and melt-in-your mouth tender. Along one... More

I've only been for a licious event so I can't speak for their service and value for regular days. However, my experience at Biff's was very pleasant. Great attentive service, large food portion (you'll actually feel full walking out of this place), and tasty food. If you're looking for inventive or creative recipes, this isn't exactly the place to try.... More

Stopped here for a late snack after checking online reviews and quickly booking on Open Table. My sister and I each ordered escargot with fresh bread and a salad. Both were top notch - fresh and tasty. We made room for dessert and shared one of the best chocolate cakes of all time. Thinking about returning again because the prix... More
