Very aesthetically pleasing interior and french vibe. Cozy and comforting decor. Very good food, their specials are worth a mention. I felt as though a lot of effort was put into that dish just for me. That's how you want to feel.
Great food and service. It’s a simple French bistro with excellent food. We were there for a birthday.
Really like this place. I just returned from 5 weeks in France and it felt completely like I was back there. Good food, good service and the $25/person prix fixe deal on Monday's is great.
Everything about this restaurant is wonderful. Do yourself a favor and go.
Great food and terrific service - I'd go back again.
My favourite French restaurant is Toronto. Hands down.
The food was incredible. Service was prompt and very attentive. Also very well informed. I can't wait to go back.
It's one of our favourite local spots. Charming French bistro with excellent food at a good price. This particular time we were there for the prix fixe menu. The beef cheeks were so tender they melted in your mouth. Perhaps I might have had a bit more cheese or sundried tomatoes to bump up the intensity of the salad--but I'm just nitpicking. We love it there.
Absolutely incredible. Chef Jean and our server Amon were so attentive throughout our meal. We were totally satisfied and are eager to return the next time we are in Toronto. Highly recommend!
Nice meal and good service.
Un resto vraiment français à Toronto. C’est fantastique !
It was my second time there, the service was excepcional, Camille was very friendly and accommodating. The food original and tasty.
Great food, vibe, and staff. A little gem and a very enjoyable time.
Great food & service! We tried their mushrooms special menu and it was amazing!!!!
Loved it! Will definitely come back again. Staff are friendly and helpful, ambienence is terrific, food was tasty.
Fabulous food, great service . Small place but we got a reservation an hour before we got there. Great experience!
Food was incredible, and very well priced. A little noisy but bearable. They could really use something to stop cold air coming in when the door is used, however.
Nice restaurant, would recommend. I probably had the worst seat unfortunately, looking behind the counter but I drank enough wine to forget it. Food was quite good, liked the cosy ambience. Would definitely go back. Enjoyed our anniversary dinner. Steak fries was yum. Salmon was really yum. Soup was okay. Loved the cheese plate. Tart tatin was yum yum.
Attentive waiters, yummy food and a romantic ambiance.
Le Baratin is a cozy French bistro. We ordered the duck breast, sea bass and friend polenta. Our party enjoyed our meals, it was delicious and fresh. Our server was kind and knowledgeable about the menu. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to family and friends.
Food is very good, but portions - at least for the duck ($27) - are very small. I had some toast when I got home from dinner! Note: there is no bread on the table. You would have to order and pay for that.
Le Baratin recreates the atmosphere of a French bistro : great atmosphere , friendly staff and superb food by Jean Regis. The price is reasonable. It is worth the drive to Dundas west and Dufferin
I really enjoyed the ambiance and authenticity of this place. It was a welcoming environment with friendly service and delicious food. I also appreciated the simplicity of the menu which always gives me confidence that everything is fresh and prepared with high consistency.
I had the boeuf bourguignon and it’s excellent!
The food was delicious! I had the seafood marmite, which was amazing. The portions were perfect. I was so please to be able to converse with my two friends without shouting over any club music, which is so common in TO. Pleasant everything. I want to come back for the steak frites. The prix fixe house made chocolate dessert was the perfect end touch. Thank you. Highly recommend this resto if you want a very good French meal with matching ambience.
Pascal makes the evening spectacular
I was disappointed that the menu was not more "French Bistro". That would likely not be big with the clientele. It seemed that most of the tables were ordering steak-frites which was not prepared as in France. Steak by any other name is still what the patrons want to eat when they go out. I was hoping for an abundance of fresh market vegetables and some traditional offerings such as cassoulet and and coq au vin, but no such luck. Most of the dishes were standard dining out fare, albeit with French names. Sorry, but my tastes are not ordinaire! Yes, I would recommend it to friends who have limited imagination.
We had a great meal at Le Baratin, great recommendations on the drinks and the food was excellent. My only complaint was the fruit flies, a bit annoying but you'll find them anywhere...
Le Baratin is the type of restaurant that I kind of wish to keep to myself...it's so wonderful. But, I also want this place to do very well and be around for a long time. People should be aware that this is excellent french food. Not just good - excellent. The servers were very knowledgable and create an atmosphere that is free of pretence. Just good honest food with fresh seasonal ingredients. I truly love this place.
With good friends the place of gathering didn’t really matter. The waitresses were attentive and they were tireless serving us with the birthday cakes. Those were about the good things regarding this place. The daily special halibut was tasteless and dry. Even I can cook great tasting halibut myself. I won’t be there again.
You are so lovely and welcoming. Everything we ate was delicious. I had a thought about this place, “the kind of place where friends get together and stay for dessert”
Such a charming place with truly incredible food. The chocolate mousse is heaven.
I had steak frites . The frites, onions, sauce and steak were excellent. The glass of wine suggested for me was also excellent.
the dessert was a chocolate truffle which I wish had lasted forever.
A nice restaurant to visit.
Le Baratin is one of my favourite restaurants in the city! They provide great food at great value.
Beautiful meal and warm service! High class food in a relaxed atmosphere. A real gem of a place.
Main course (duck confit with mushroom risotto) was excellent. Starter, selection of cheeses (to share), would benefit by serving more than one small slice of bread with it. Otherwise, nicer overall than I expected!
This was our second time at Le Baratin.
I have serious food allergies, and the staff and chef did everything possible to meet my needs.
I will definitely return.
Our second time to Le Baratin. For the money, it is the best French restaurant in Toronto. The charcuterie was delicious & the game hen with cheesy potatoes was fantastic. Portions are generous and very reasonably priced. It is rare in Toronto to leave a restaurant feeling that you've had a memorable dinner without leaving you broke. Well done!
The food and service was great. Enjoyed my dining experience
