So very obliging....

Biff's is one of the earlier O & B outlets and it exudes a certain sense of "belonging", as if it's part of the real estate. We were promptly shown to a table for two but I wondered why our table top was noticeably damaged as if some one had taken a knife to it. Strange choice as ours was... read more

We went for dinner before a show at the Air Canada Centre. Perfect place within walking distance to the theatres on King Street too. Good Prix Fixe selection. Excellent waiter.

Ate here for dinner recently. The dishes were great, with generous portions. Desert ( flour less torte) disappointing. Service good, not great. Would recommend.

O&B never fails to disappoint! Went here for lunch and to be honest I wasn't expecting it to great. I was definitely wrong! The food was amazing! I had an assortment of food but my favourite was the chorizo and kale salad! It wasn't too filling but was delicious! My only negative was that I had gone in the middle... More

I come from Europe and I know the good french cuisine. The aesthetic was fantastic and romantic, so I decided to bring my wife there but then.. the food was terrible, from the starter to dessert.. the only good thing was the bread before start our dinner. We were trying to finish our dishes just because we felt sorry about... More

My friend and I each enjoyed our delicious fixed price lunches, especially the soups. The main room is quite noisy, but we were given a quieter table in a side room where the service was pleasant and unhurried. Only complaint was that they didn't fill our water glasses without being asked. I will definitely return.

This little restaurant reminded us of a favorite bistro in Paris. Service was attentive, presentations were just shy of elegant, and the selections and seasonings were excellent. On top of that, prices were quite modest for our meals. We enjoyed it so much we went back a couple of days later and had the same experience, but a different enough... More

I ordered a FILET MIGNON that was not that tender or properly prepared. The rest of the meal was also lacking and definitely not worth the medium to high price. The restaurant and room was first rate, but the food, the most important component was lacking.

Had a great dinner here this week. The restaurant is quiet which allows for a comfortable level of conversation. As for the food, the seared tuna was perfectly cooked and the candied orange cake for dessert was well worth it. The service was also quite good. I definitely would eat here again!
