About
Reminiscent of a 1930's Parisian Bistro, Biff's Bistro is a smart, upscale masterpiece by Toronto uber-restaurateurs Peter Oliver and Michael Bonacini. The stylish lounge, featuring a stunning zinc-topped bar, represents pure vintage design, while handsome leather banquettes, warm wood paneling and grand mirrors create a rich, lively dining space. In this setting, Chef Bill Osborne presents an extensive menu of inspiring French bistro cuisine, with an impressive corresponding wine list. Located in the heart of downtown, just steps away from many downtown theatres, hotels and the Scotiabank Arena.

Our meal here was perfect. The beef bourguignon was so good! Perfectly tender and full of that rich flavour that it is known for. Service was impeccable and quick.

When you order duck confit and they say it comes with lyonnaise potatoes. It doesn’t ... it comes with regular hard little baby potatoes. As for the duck, it’s okay, but not great. A little soggy, not crispy. However, the salads are nice, the soups...More
