I was one of a group of 7 who enjoyed a spectacular luncheon this week at BIFFS on Front Street, Toronto. We could not have been happier with the private room (which could have seated probably 15-18) and the attentive service by our waiter Al. Our waiter was kind, attentive, appropriately funny, knowledgeable about the menu and various options, including... More

Hosted a post business social in Biff's Grey Room. Perfect venue for 25 with cocktails and canapés off the main dining room. Good selection of hors d'oeurves. Well presented and appropriate for all dietary considerations. Delicious. Very attentive staff and catering manager. Often difficult in downtown Toronto to find a space that allows for some privacy in a noisy, bustling... More

Came for dinner with my boyfriend. Didn't expect much but were pleasantly surprised. Everything from appetizer to dessert was delicious. I already want to come back. Sommelier suggested wine that paired well with our food. I had Foie Gras, Duck Confit and Creme brulee for dessert. SOOOO GOOD!!! My boyfriend had Escargot, Beef Bourguignon and Chocolate cake. We were celebrating... More

I come to Biff's at least once a week. Usually for business lunch. Restaurant is very nice and they have the most beautiful patio in Toronto. Delicious food. I love their mushroom soup, quiche, and tuna Nicoise is one of my favorite dishes. Always quick and efficient service. Very nice and attentive staff: from hostess to servers and server assistants....

Service: Had to keep flagging down the waiter as he never looked at us as he walked by many times. When we were able to flag him down and order beverages it took a long time to receive them, other than the initial drink that is, that was fairly quick. I asked for oil & balsamic for the bread and... More

Our first visit to Biff's Bistro was for a quick lunch as we were at Financial District. We tried only their starters and they were well prepared and fresh. We were so pleased by the quality of the meal, the service we decided to go back for dinner. Calf's liver was delicious, cooked as we wanted. The cod and the... More

Went for dinner pre show at Sony Centre. Patio was nice, good people watching. Smelt, lightly breaded and deep fried, just perfectly done. Mussels, decent size, properly cooked, lot of veggies & stuff in the bowl- very nice great flavor. Service was excellent, very friendly and perfectly timed. Would definitely return!

Thank Bob W

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
