As I work nearby, I decided to drop by with a friend after work, Thursday Sep 4 2014, to try the oyster special. They advertise $1 oysters and $5 drinks starting at 5 pm. I was sceptical about the quality of the oysters for only $1. I was correct. The oysters were very small and definitely not fresh. They were... More

I was treated to a fabulous dining experience on August 12, 2014! A friend had won a Toronto Winterlicious contest for dinner for 10 and chose to enjoy (and share) his prize when we were in Toronto at a summer conference. First of all, we were treated like royalty (private dining room, personalized menu, dedicated servers) from start to finish.... More

We have been to Biffs several times for lunch and dinner, and have always had exemplary service, exciting food selections, and delicious food. On August 15th, we took my husbands parents to dinner, and once again, the dinner was a roaring success. Our server, Natalie, was very attentive to our table, and made sure that Mom and Dad, who are... More

While in Toronto I wanted to give Biff's another try since it's been 4 years and I liked it even more this visit. The foie gras appitizer w/peaches that I chose was delicious, and my husband ordered the bone marrow that's prepared with the bone cut lenghtwise and that was really something with the added beef cheeks. He got the... More

While not QUITE true to the name ("bistro" originally came from a Russian word meaning "fast") given that our party of 13 had to wait nearly an hour for lunch (maybe due to our size), the food and service were otherwise reflective of the true quality and excellence of this place. The trout was superb, the chicken club was excellent,... More

Firstly, our waitress was absolutely fantastic. Second, the food was excellent. Third, the restaurant is beautiful. Lastly, the wine list was amazing. Enough said? I think this one is worth a return visit.

Went for the Summerlicious menu and were not disappointed. A great 3 course lunch for $15. But the great thing for me is the $1 oysters at 5pm. They only sell 500 of them so sit at the bar, have a beverage and enjoy a buck a shuck.

It was a great location for a business meeting since other restaurants tend to be too noisy with unnecessary loud music. We had a special function room with great service. The menu selection is diverse enough for all pallets. I chose a lighter menu with a nice vinegrette salad and seared tuna as my entree. I like the quality and... More
