I have enjoyed many dinners at Chabrol since they opened ... every visit has been absolutely spectacular ... food, ambience, service ... the patio in the summer is my favorite spot.
Amazing food and even better service!
Chabrol is a very small restaurant hidden down a lane off Yorkville Ave. The location itself makes it seem special and it is. In the summer the size doubles with addition of a patio. The greeting is warm and professional at the same time. The menu is small and hits all the right notes -salads, lamb, vegetarian mushroom ragout, parchment wrapped fish, seafood in broth, gratin vegetables etc. The wine list perfectly matches the food and the waiter was knowledgeable and helpful matching each course. The food is all wonderful, each dish prepared with care in an open, “miniature” kitchen, each presentation special. The apple tart takes 25 min to make from scratch so they ask if you want it at the start, don’t pass it up. It is very special.
Very pleasing patio. Small kitchen but tasty food. Prices are a bit on the expensive side though.
Very good - although menu seemed a bit out of season. We went for lunch on a 30 degree day and the mains consisted of offerings such as beef short rib and lamb. Way too heavy for summer and even more so for lunch. Cheese was amazing.
Always outstanding on every level! Food, service, ambiance, just everything is wonderful!
Unbelievavle dining experience. I am conflicted about leaving this review as I want to keep this place to myself it's so amazing. The apple tartlet dessert is the crowning touch to a French meal masterpiece - whatever you choose from the menu.
Came here for a birthday dinner, and had a lovely time. Food was amazing, and service was very friendly. I usually do not eat raw oysters, but the ones we ordered that night was very fresh and sweet! Price range is up there for me, but is definitely worth it once in a while :)
nice intimate setting. good selection on menu. recommend for small groups
The food was amazing! I've been looking for good French food in the city, and I'm very happy I stumbled on this gem. The service was amazing, the staff were warm and welcoming, and very accommodating.
This place is exceptional - small, but superb. Knowledgable and helpful staff were attentive and ensured that our meal was just right. Excellent with food allergies - very accommodating. Will definitely be returning. All dishes were well prepared and presented. The lamb was outstanding.
Excellent food, so many delicious options made choosing hard. Rich, authentic french food in a tiny space with close tables. Service was good, but a little slow with drinks order at the beginning. Our waiter was sometimes hard to hear because the room is quite loud. He made great wine pairing suggestions. The mains were substantial and perfect... followed by a lovely creme brule! Can't wait for the patio to open!
Excellent lunch on a casual Friday afternoon with a good friend.
My friend visiting from NYC and I had a dinner on Wednesday evening. The foie gras was absolutely perfect with black currant purée was absolutely perfect and could not be improved upon. The vegetable gratin was very good, but perhaps a bit bland. I reheated the leftovers for breakfast - and added some caramelized onions & a very light mix of grated Parmesan & Gruyere cheeses on top while it reheated in the oven, and a put fried egg on top of each portion. It was delicious! The onion & cheese really improved the good but perhaps too subtle flavour of the gratin dish. Still - no complaints!
Our server Laura was terrific - charming, funny and helpful. Her wine suggestion was exquisite and much better than the one we originally thought of ordering. She had a wonderfully delightful and gentle sense of humour and a light touch during the evening - never being too present or not sufficiently attentive.
It is a very beautiful, small restaurant with a limited, perfect menu. I love it!
Delicious food and very attentive service.
The wait staff were very attentive - a replacement knife magically appeared when my girlfriend dropped hers, sparkling water was topped up when required - and it generally felt like we were taken care of. The texture of the beef au feu was perfect and magical and the broth tasty. The apple tarte was as delightful as expected and it was a nice touch giving us some bread and Brie on the house. My only negative was that the acoustics somehow managed to make the venue feel loud when more people arrived.
amazing ambience for such a small space,; delicious food and wonderful service
Beautiful Food Experience
Obvious talent and creative skill
One of the best experiences I have had dining since I went to Three Small Rooms almost 50 years ago
Excellent food, friendly service. Can't wait for the patio to open.
My Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our Brunch at Chabrol.
The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. Very knowledgeable staff. Great spot for Brunch can’t wait until they open the patio
lamb and beef main was not good as expected!!!
oyster was fresh but little bit expensive and small.
This is undoubtedly the best restaurant in the city. I took a list of the best 100 restaurants and this was on it. That is how I discovered it. Of all the restaurants on my list that I tried this was my number one. It is intimate, relaxing, delicious, best creme brulee in the city and the best servers and management of any restaurant I have experienced so far. They get it just right! I love it.
Wonderful, attentive but never over-bearing service, courses timed perfectly, apple tart a must try!
Excellent meal...friendly and refined (but not snobby) service. Instant favorite.
Yeah. Good. Great, really. A tad expensive but it’s a low volume, detail oriented, “it’s all about the food” kinda place that makes the humble potato taste amazing - no really - so who’s to grumble?
Intimate and special
Cramped overpriced French cafe food. A lot of chi chi for good but not great French bistro.
Simply delicious, the perfect spot for a snowy night in the city. The food was perfect and the staff friendly and attentive. I look forward to going back!
It was a very discrete location. Nice ambiance and Amazing food! No delays and Chris and the rest of the staff were pleasant.
Another great meal!
One of my favourite Toronto restaurants. Great food, personal service, excellent wine, cozy and romantic.
The food is very tasty, particularly the fish dishes, which are the only mains I have ordered. Salads are excellent as well. Really good food .
The food and attentive service were outstanding. I have eaten at this restaurant before and have recommended it to friends many times.
The food, wine and service were great.
The restaurant is very small and the tables are close together. We were beside a woman who used her phone extensively, not the fault of the restaurant.
Wonderful food. Friendly and professional service. Like a cafe in Paris but without the snooty waiters. Only downside was the blast of cold every time the door opened. Try not to be seated by the door if dining in winter.
One of my favorites restaurant in Toronto, excellent food , services and atmosphere
Fantastic, tiny spot. Be sure to make a rez or go off hours. Fabulous food and presentation.
It was great !
A great lunch.
