Been here a couple of times for Summerlicious. I was surprised at how freshly prepared the food was, and maybe it was because of Summerlicious, but it was a pretty good value as well. This place is part of the O&B group. Nice ambiance. A good choice in the downtown core.

We just went for our anniversary it was amazing!! Reminded us of Paris and our trip there last year. Staff was friendly and great atmosphere. The chairs outside were even like the bistros that line the streets of Paris. Worth the trip and cheaper then a plane ride.

If you feel the need for a salad, especially on a hot summer day, then this place is perfect. The salad Nicoise was superb, more deconstructed than the traditional one with more fresh ingredients. The Albacore grilled tuna was a nice touch. Service was wonderful. The only thing I didn't like was my Aperol Spritz which I found watered down,... More

We had a business dinner her for 20+ people in a private dinign room. The service, atmosphere, the food was all fantastic. I had the hangaer steak and enjoyed it. They have a 30 day aged negronie that is very good. worth trying if you like Gin.

Love their $1 oyster after 5pm in the summer! I usually get it along with summerlicious and it definitely worth the price!

This restaurant exceeded our expectations. We did not have a reservation but were promptly seated at the bar. It was a hot and humid evening and their AC worked well to keep us cool. I orders the ahi tuna salad and a cucumber gin cooler. It hit the spot. My husband ordered the duck confit which was delicious as well.... More

My daughter and I returned to Biff's to celebrate my birthday during Summerlicious. The entire experience was excellent from the friendly greeting to the attentive service to the delicious food. My daughter mentioned it was my birthday and we received small glasses of sparkling wine as starters. We each enjoyed the chilled pea soup. My salmon entrée was the best... More

Selections of all three categories. Chicken Supreme was not what I expected...mixed with pasta...but well flavoured. The upside down cake was 'super'. Service attentive. Room a bit noisy. Gets a 5 from me.

A friendly well located restaurant in the middle of Toronto. Whilst the food was of good quality the service provided by our waited, Alphonze was the highlight of the evening. Just a great place to enjoy a fine meal. We also enjoyed good meals at O&C next door and Kit Kat a little further afield but Biffs would be first... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
