“Best bistro in Toronto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Without a doubt Restaurant Didier is one of Toronto's top restaurants. Chef/owner Didier Leroy consistently produces classic French bistro food. His frites with steak and frites are divine. He produces what is arguably the best steak tartare anywhere. Duck confit that lets in your mouth. Foie gras that is to die for. Service is excellent. Attentive but discrete. Reliable, affordable and delicious. You cannot do better than a dinner chez Didier.

“Delicious Food and Very Attentive Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

My family and I experienced a very enjoyable meal to celebrate a special event. This was our first time eating at this restaurant and I will certainly recommend it to others. I have been reading the reviews and clearly there was an issue with poor service but things have changed as we were treated very well. The soup was perfectly seasoned and the main (we all had the coulibiac of salmon) was delicous.

“good food reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Reasonable prices for 3 course plus extras meals. The rare venison and sea bass are both excellent choices. Not keen about the duck comfit.
The l'escargot as an appetizer is excellent...some of the best i have had.

“Very disappointed with our first and very likley last visit.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

Excellent food.
Hence a real disapoontment overall given that the service was horrible. It detracted from the overall experience. The front of house is a real issue at thIs establishment and is serious need of repair.

“The whole dining experience was really excellent.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

The menu had a number of interesting selections. I cho
se the duck duo. It was beautifully served and delicious. The escargots were memorable and the suggested wine went beautifully with all our selections. The staff were attentive without intruding. The whole experience could't have been better.
