Going to Biff's was one of the most wonderful experiences! We went there for winterlicious but still received excellent service. The waiter was EXTREMELY friendly and professional and knowledgable. The food was very good for the most part but the beef i ordered was a bit on the salty side. I would definitely go again!

I too like Biff's. It is the place to go to get a great meal before a hockey/bball game or before a show. However, if you are going before a show, make sure you make a reservation. Other times, it tends to be quite dead.

Don't let the name fool you. We had lunch at Biff's in while visiting Toronto last week and we had a wonderful meal.

Apparently Toronto is in the middle of Summerlicious (7/7-23), kind of a Restaurant Week. Biffs was offering a $20 three course lunch. We just walked in without a reservation and were seated, but the place filled up quickly soon after.

My son started with the chilled leek and potato soup with minted summer pea cream. He then had the Flat iron steak frites. The steak was about 8 oz. served with excellent frites and a suprise of a salsa verde with mint in it on the side. Excellent.

My wife had the organic mixed greens with chevre and hezelnuts. Lightly dressed and very fresh. She doesn't normally like hazelnuts, but these were excellent. She then had the Crepe forestiere, chicken, summer truffle and mushrooms a la creme. She savored every bite and declared it one of the best meals she has ever had.

I started with the caramelixzed onion tart with anchovy and marinated tomatoes. It was superb. I then had the grilled calamari with charred Provencal ratatouille, and rouille crostini. To die for. The calamari was grilled perfectly, tender and flavorful, and the ratatouille was wonderful. Again, the salsa verde was on the side of the dish and was an excellent counterpoint.

Dessert was a wonderful lemon tart with blueberry compote and honey creme fraiche for me. Both ny wife and son had the dark chocolate torte with brandied cherries and milk chocolate Anglaise.

Service was out of this world. Very formal yet friendly. She scraped the table between each course (mainly because we kept eating the wonderful crusty bread that was provided) was never obtrusive, but our water glasses were always full and the bread basket never empty.

I looked at the wine list. It was quite long, but rather expensive.

I wish we had had time to go back for dinner but alas, we didn't.

their oysters are wonderful, and their presentation is the best I've had in the city (to date).

We love Biff's and the food is always great.

One word of caution though...every time we've been (we go once a year or so) the place has been empty. Not a big deal for the majority of people, I'm sure, but we felt as if some atmosphere was missing. And we also felt (as a result) that we were hovered over by the very attentive staff looking for something to do. Which is great (in a bad way).

Ok, I'm not making any sense now.

Biff's is great. Go!
