Great service, great evening!

We had dinner here tonight. The food was great. The French onion soup is truly excellent. The service was some of the best we have experienced anywhere in the world -- as it should be for a place striving to be "best of breed" in Toronto. In particular, the male waiter who looked after us was... read more

My husband and I had a lay-over in Toronto and decided to treat ourselves to a nice French restaurant. After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, we booked reservations at Jacques Bistro Du Parc. The restaurant is situated a few blocks from the Royal Ontario Museum, and is convenient to the Metro(TTC). What a delightful dinning experience. As mentioned in other... More

Except for one time, I have always dined here when I visit the city. Although I have enjoyed the food, I have been coming here for the service. As I stated previously, if I wanted to impress someone, I would take that person here. On this visit, in addition to the soup du jour, I had ordered the special which... More

I love that a little bit of France found its way to Toronto. Chez Jacques offers a classic French menu and service en francais! Fantastic! I opted for the halibut special (no complaints), and the tarte tatin aux pommes. I'd recommend both.

Old school French cuisine done impeccably. Very gracious staff. My husband loved the escargots and I the omelette Bonne Femme. Wish I'd saved room for dessert! Not overpriced either

I had the distinct pleasure of trying out this Bistro during January. We just walked in off the street and were fortunate to get a table. the restaurant is owned and run by a couple with Jacques the chef in the kitchen. You are given a superb welcome in French and taken to your table by a very attentive waiter.... More

A good friend introduced me to Jacques Bistro du Parc fifteen years ago, and it's since become my "go to" place for a simply perfect lunch or dinner. Over the years, I've enjoyed many of the quality omelettes (the chaser is one of my faves), several of the other entrées, and all of the desserts. I've never been disappointed. When... More

My friend and I had reservations for 12:30, we arrived early, no problem. Our coats were taken and we were shown to a lovely table overlooking the lovely park across the street. The tables are quite close together, but this is not a deterrent in the least. The service was excellent but unobtrusive. We both had French Onion Soup, the... More

This is an oasis of country French cooking. I have rarely felt as much at home in a restaurant as I felt here and this was my first trip to the restaurant. The French Onion soup was the best I have ever enjoyed, the entrée was a veal and fresh mushroom delight, and the dessert, a beautifully comported fresh organic... More

This is a quaint little French restaurant that has very good food. It was not as good as the last time I was there a year ago. French onion soup was very good and the rack of lamb was pretty good.
