Its good for the winter, a bit pricy but all good
This was my first time here, and although we couldn’t sit inside due to covid regulations, the outside was SO beautiful. They have heaters to make dining more comfortable so don’t worry. The food is delicious, the server was very knowledgeable with recommendations (and he was right about everything) and the ambiance is gorgeous! I can’t wait to dine inside.
At best average food but high end pricing
So cute and cozy, super friendly staff. Loved the vibe and the food was amazing. Get the duck…you won’t be sorry.
This is not only one of the most charming establishments I have been to in Toronto, but the loveliest on King West and rivals some in Paris itself. The service was impeccable and the host turned what might have been a hard night (unrelated to the restaurant) in to a delight. Warm, welcoming and remarkably unpretentious yet classy and elegant with a touch of the divine.
Excellent experience outside for our anniversary on January 17th. The patio is protected from the wind. It was cold but service was excellent and food was great!
Sooo glad we braved the -14 temps to visit Lapinou. The patio area has a few heaters and is shielded from the wind by the alleyway but bundle up and bringing a blanket for your legs. A couple hot toddies (extra whiskey for me!) are a perfect way to start off and they're also great for keeping your hands warm!
Food and service was very good. We were hungry so the two appetizers (squash fritters and pork terrine) and three mains (ricotta dumplings, short ribs, steak frites ) we had were perfect for us. The waiter recommended a nice bottle of wine to compliment our meal and we wrapped up with the olive oil cheesecake and creme brulee for dessert. Every item was really good.
We ended up spending about $280 before tip and felt the experience was good value for the money.
We definitely would recommend Lapinou for date night.
It was cozy despite the cold. Service was excellent and food was good for sharing!
Here for the drinks and vibe. Food was good but not great for the price.
It was a fantastic "forget that it's Pandemic closedown" experience, with a nicely heated patio and top shelf cuisine and perfect service. It actually made the temporary pandemic circumstances something to remember, instead of forget...I could imagine nothing better. My date and I discussed that we would definitely go again. As for the food? When a place can wow you with salads, you know you are in good hands!
Such a wonderful night out! Fantastic food, great service, loved the ambiance of the heated patio. Will definitely be going back.
Great heated patio, nice location, very cozy and great service
I loved the ambiance, it had a really cozy vibe. Service and food was excellent. I’ll definitely be going back
Service was exceptional, the team looking after us was knowledgeable in the food and enthusiastic about the dishes. We had a lovely corner booth which was quiet and intimate. We enjoyed trying several dishes, the elements of some of the dishes were very different which we enjoyed trying! Overall, we had a lovely experience and look forward to dining here again.
Wonderful and will revisit when open again
Great Date Night Spot!
We went to Lapinou for their New Years Eve prefix evening, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The portions were small but well curated (and delicious!). The ambiance was lovely, especially with the French jazz band playing in the background.
Definitely a special occasion kind of place, I won’t be rushing back for the price tag of the evening, but worth the event
Food was wonderful. Atmosphere was not very loud and was nice. Live music was a great touch
Waiter not really that attentive. Had to flag down another waiter a few times (one to place an order, 2nd time because they forgot the wine pairing, 3rd time a diff reason). I feel like waiter isn’t well trained doesn’t really take that well care of the customers. Our waiter was the one with tattoos. I don’t know why I gave a 10% tip on a $250 meal…..
A wonderful dinner. So happy that you guys were still open and serving great food.
great place to eat. a must try & great for a dinner date
Our new favourite place in the neighborhood. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding . Authentic bistro vibe with great cocktails. Oysters were fresh and the smoked ham appetizer is a must. We will return!
Amazing service, food & ambiance. My new favourite place in the city.
Repas correct mais sans plus. La carte est peu claire, on ne sait pas si les plats sont des entrées ou des plats. Les prix sont élevés pour la quantité et la qualité.
Wonderful experience! Food was delicious and waiter was very attentive.
Very nice evening. Excellent service. Great cocktails and wine. Food was top notch but a bit sparse.
Classic French food - absolutely delicious, perfect portion sizes, different than you will find elsewhere. Had the brunch menu with a glass of champagne. The meal was divine.
A beautiful King West space with delicious French food and professional, kind service. A lovely atmosphere for any occasion, great value for money and attentive staff.
excellent service , first rate meal , beautiful décor
will be booking a dinner soon
Excellent overall. The flow of how the dishes came out was perfect, the staff were so attentive and on point. We sat on the patio and we were comfortable even though its December.
Great food and service. Wine is overpriced. Nice place for a date.
Team Christmas dinner. Our server was hardworking and very attentive
Had a lovely family get together with my cousin who is visiting from the UK. Our server Aaron was fabulous. Super friendly and helpful with menu navigating and drink pairings. All of our plates were delicious, we shared quite a few. I will highly recommend this spot to others and plan to return again in the future.
Diner was ok but the regional menu for December is disappointing compared too November… just a simple salade for entree … bouff I am not blow out and it pricy for a salade
Beef was good
But the chocolate tarte the salty caramel was way way too much salty that I was not good
Decor is gorgeous & appreciated the quick & diligent vaccine passport checks. Service was top notch. Food was great overall, but crab in shellfish platter was tasteless. Ricotta dumplings incredible & the yogurt Creme brûlée fabulous. Also best restaurant drink was the jalapeño margarita. Music was pretty loud & did not at all match the vibe of the restaurant. Different playlist would have upped this to a 5 star.
Excellent menu, great service. I had the fresh foccaccia, squash fritters, oysters, and the escargots. I finished with the creme brule, which when they add the blackberries and yogurt to lighten it, has become a new favourite dessert.
Service was horrible- not the server, but the overall staff, getting us a table half a hour later than we planned ( reservations were at 8:30- we were seated at 9:00). Asked what was taking so long, hostess was very rude.
Server was pleasant, but the food took way too long.
Food was great but it was painfully slow. Not the place to go if you’re in a rush. If you’re okay with spending 2+ hours, then this is a great spot.
Delicious food. Our server made great drink and food recommendations. The outdoor patio had heaters and blankets.
My first time at this place, with a very large group... it was WONDERFUL, the food was amazing, the drinks were heavenly, the wine flowed freely. My only regret was not ordering dessert! 10/10 will come here again, highly recommend. Oh the bathrooms are super cute too!
