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

One of the few places around advertising Lillet! The first thing I did was order a Vesper Martini - and I was not disappointed. Very good. We ordered from the Summerlicious menu which provided a great selection at reasonable prices. The salmon tartare was very well done with just the right amount of dill and garnish to balance the flavors.... More

Ate lunch at Biff's recently, part of Toronto's summerlicious event: a 3 course meal including jambon, fish and cheese plate for dessert. My wife had salmon tartar, fish and a gorgeous strawberry meringue. The food was excellent and the service top notch. The meal was $20 per person prix fixe - a great bargain. Biff's had a great wine selection... More

We met friends for dinner at Biff's, a very attractive restaurant on Front street, Toronto with food we were told to match and staff who provide good service. I choose Chicken Au Pistou as a main and the chocolate Bavorois from the Summerlicious menu and sadly found both courses bland & tasteless, to say the least! I also asked for... More

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary while on holiday in Toronto and we were happy to celebrate at this restaurant! We were looking for a slightly upscale restaurant with smart casual attire. The wait staff was so friendly and accommodating - they let us take home a small jar of their famous in-house made mustard! We ordered the... More

True bistro atmosphere. We had dinner outside on a beautiful evening. A slightly wobbly start with a rather flavourless salad. Things picked up with the mains: beautiful poached salmon and a flawless Steak Diane. Dessert: cheese was very interesting, mousse au chocolat a little bland. Overall very good. Looking forward to a return visit. The interior of the restaurant is... More

Really great place, really happy to have finally tried it! The food was fantastic and the decor/music sets a great atmosphere. Our server, Natalie (if I remember correctly) was really really amazing. She was so nice and really took care of us, and also made us feel so welcomed. The oysters are great and you should definitely give the "Summerlicious"... More
