I would describe this as an European style restaurant, in terms of decor, service and food. I had the seafood bisque soup and the small plate of the seared tuna, and greatly enjoyed both of them. There was only one couple eating there when I...More

The Bay Leaf can be easily overlooked as they don't run ads and seem to blend in discretely along Hamilton St. But the food and service are consistently FABULOUS. The menu is large and diverse; I would describe it as continental with an Asian flare....More
