A friend and I spent several days in Toronto. Biff's (what a curious name for a lovely French restaurant!) was close to our hotel, had outside seating, looked great. The only hitch: we weren't hungry enough for a full dinner. We ordered frivolous cocktails to...More

My family really enjoyed our meal here. I had the bœuf bourguignon and everyone else had the chicken. Both were amazing! They also have an excellent wine list. The prix fixe menu is your best value. I only wish they would have had a few...More

Biff's suits a business meeting, both with great French kitchen influenced food and with it's "relative quiteness". Most places in the city are very cool, yet very loud. I can recommend the salad with albacore tuna - delicious!

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

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 Amanda Ray 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 Air Canada Centre.
