    The duck was overcooked, steak was meh (low on frites), swordfish was taste wise good but oddly thin. The food was high quality, just found a few things to be a bit off in the presentation and cooking.

    The food was alright, pretty shocked we were charged $10 for still water and another $7 for bread when our waiter asked if we wanted bread for the table. At one point the entire restaurant smelled like cigarette smoke coming from the kitchen.

    We came in for the Tues/Wed dinner special and had a great time! We were only able to secure a late reservation for the bar but they offered a table for us when we arrived. The food was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed everything. Will be visiting again!

    Food was exquisite, chef was insightful, and the dishes were very well portioned as to leave you wanting more until the very end. Service left something to be desired, our waitress was very kind but also somewhat forgetful in that we waited more than 30 minutes between our second last course and dessert and were getting ready to just pay the bill and leave. In terms of pricing I found the portions good and cost reasonable given it was the half off tasting menu, however being informed of the $17 for bread and water would've been nice. My Ambience rating is low due to the fact the tables are maybe a foot apart and the couple's nearby were constantly listening in and interjecting our conversation on what was supposed to be a romantic night out. Thank you to everyone who made our experience what it was.

    We live just down the street and had been wanting to try the tasting menu for awhile. As we were waiting for our table, the chef came out and was super personable and nice, telling us all about the ingredients they just got in and what to be excited for on the menu. Our server Chris was such a treat. Super friendly and accommodating. Her service really made the evening. And the food!!! UNREAL. Everything was the perfect portion and full of flavour. We couldn’t pick a favourite. The escargot, gumbo, and steak frite were top 3 for sure. Drinks were great too! Will most definitely be returning for the food and the stellar service. Worth checking out!

    I dined at Bouffe with a friend and it was an amazing experience. The food was delicious and the service was great. We dined a little bit earlier in the evening (6pm), so it was quieter but when we were leaving, it was a little bit more lively. We especially loved the espresso martini - it’s the best I’ve ever had in my life. From the menu, I’d highly recommend getting the steak tartar, and the steak fritz. Delicious !

    First time at Bouffe and had a great experience. We had the taster menu and it was excellent value at a 50% off promo. The food was delicious and well-timed for the different courses and we enjoyed it enough to have paid full price. Will definitely go back again. The staff was attentive and had great energy and we enjoyed chatting with chef/owner, David Adjey.

    Decided to try Bouffe By Adjey after seeing their 50% off tasting menu on TikTok. While the food was good, service definitely felt a bit slow and that we were always waiting. First it was for someone to give us a drink menu, then we had to ask for cutlery after the food was already in front of us, and times in between courses were long (15-20 mins). We were there for over 2 hours. Maybe we just prefer a more prompt service, but the first 3 courses were cold so we didn’t expect it to take that long. The food was good, I thought the gumbo could be more flavorful though. The tasting menu being 50% off made it worth it, but I wouldn’t go back and pay full price.

    Food as good, not amazing but not bad. Portion sizes very small so i left still hungry after getting through the tasting menu The ambiance and decor is very nice and I enjoyed the music. Service was not good which is pretty standard whenever there is an auto-gratuity as the servers don’t necessarily have an incentive to provide great service as they get their 18% gratuity regardless. Normally I steer clear of auto-grat places but this restaurant was recommended to me so i tried it out.

    My girlfriend and I tried the tasting menu it was a great date night! Courses were brought out at a great pace. Just long enough to enjoy the meal but we never had to wait long to have our plates cleared. Everything was served at a great temperature, so extra kudos to the service and experience. The food was very good. We left feeling full however there were a couple dishes that weren't our favourite.

    Overall this was a fantastic tasting menu and I would certainly go again. There was ample variety with 7 courses. The ambiance could use improving and tables are seated a little too close together resulting in the inability to have a discussion with another person. Great value and a nice experience!

    Fork was a bit dirty. It took a bit long for our gumbo to arrive, I think our server was under the impression we had finished and wanted to get us ready for the steak, it but let her know it hadn’t come yet. Overall pretty good service otherwise.

    It was exceptional experience. Nothing to complain, food was excellent, the gumbo was delicious and rich, the escargot was refreshing with a hint of citrus at the end. The salade was a surprise, the crisp bacon was a match with the cheese, together with the sauce. The service was excellent, friendly neighborhood type of french bistro. What a steak! 10/10!! Would definitely go back!

    Jacket was hung behind our chair and it kept being nudged by people/staff walking by. Our tables were so close to the next...everytime the server was helping the next table their behind was literally inches away from the table. Very loud place, couldn't even hear ourselves talking. Food did not look like tiktok videos posted, you could tell they were very busy and overbooked (our hostess also said she was glad we came on time because they booked back to back reservations)
