The service was great -pleasant, attentive and friendly. There were five of us in the group and everything we had a was fresh and savoury. The prix-fix menu made it great to try all the dishes we wanted. Restaurant is clean and cosy. We would all go back again and it is highly recommended.

We had our belated holiday luncheon here and it just happened to be Winterlicious. The selection of food choices on the menu were delicious enjoyed by all and we didn't have to wait long for our meal. I also can't say enough about the staff. They were so calm, organized, out-right friendly and very accommodating during a very busy lunch... More

Went with friends for lunch during Winterlicious and was pleasantly surprise how great the entire experience was. Although we had to wait a bit for our table it was worth the wait. The food was excellent and portion size totally acceptable. Real value for your money.

We discovered Midi Bistro thanks to Winterlicious. As a French, I was a bit suspicious when I saw that the snails wouldn't be prepared traditionally (with butter, garlic and parsley). But decided to give it a try, and it turned out to be delicious. I then got a duck with a blueberry sauce, even though I am not used to... More

We often eat here, maybe once a month. We find their small dinners to be fresh, tasty and filling. A great reminder of our trip to Paris.

We and our friends enjoy going the annual Toronto Summerlicious restaurants, in July finding many fabulous three course meals for literally half price. This year we choose Midi Bistro, firstly because it is downtown, so close to the Art Gallery of Toronto and walking distance to other intriguing buildings AND secondly/now because of the fabulous food and service.

Fabulous french restaurant. Small and quaint. Great food and original organic wines that we have not tried anywhere else. Try their vegan shepherds pie.

This was the second and last time with ate at this restaurant. The first time we came a couple years ago, we met with the chef who was French and his wife who served us very well (who also spoke French), and the moules-frites were absolutely excellent. We came this weekend to this little charming bistro, and except from the... More

Had lunch here today with friends from out of town and we all loved it. Superb home-made dishes and dessets, ample portions, pleasant ambience and a wonderful server who tended efficiently and pleasantly to the entire restaurant all on his own--and with a smile. Garden salad and pâté were excellent, as were the open-face sandwiches and omelette that our friends... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
