Take an imaginary plane in the evening with the culinary experience of our French inspired menu.
Food prepared at Le Baratin is indeed classic with a modern twist. Classic in a sense of ‘old school’: our sauces are all made in-house, with a veal-based stock. These days, that is very rare. Chef Jean likes the good old way of preparing food - truly, the proper way!
For Brunch, the Croque Monsieur is a must-have. French peasant, or street food, is uniquely reinvented here.
Our wine list is mid-priced and extensively

    Authentic French cuisine! We had the 3 course meal and were almost full by the time dessert came, which really surprised me (in a good way). The service was great, there wasn't a long wait between courses and waiters were nice. Food was worth the price. Will definitely come back again!

    We had a wonderful experience! The food was amazing and the service on point! They knew ahead of time that I was gluten free and they went out of their way to make sure I had some gluten free crackers to go with my cheese plate and took the time to discuss my gluten free options, which I really appreciated. We’ll definitely be going back whenever we are in town!

    The prix fixe menu is a fantastic value for the fantastic dishes that you get. I would think anything that you order will taste delicious. My partner thought the server was a bit rushed, but I didn't think so... His mannerisms and the way he spoke was quick &amp; fast-paced... Which may have given my partner the idea that we were being hurried. Perhaps, a slower way of interaction may be best. Every single dish that was brought out was perfectly seasoned and really good. Will come here again.

    This was our first time dining here and we will be back! Everything was wonderful: the ambiance, the service, the drinks, the food….my husband had the meat special which was a pork chop and he claims it was the best pork chop he has ever had - and he’s a tough marker ha! I had the fish special and it, along with everything else was cooked to perfection and delicious. Excellence all around.

    Maybe because of the shortage of staff, some service is not in place, even though the price is not expensive, the quality of steak and duck leg was not very good. The dessert was a bit of a disappointment, with the tart off balance and the cream brulee having a liquid texture. It was a birthday dinner, received nothing special from the restaurant. (They knew when it was booked in advance.)

    Food was excellent. Service was excellent as well. The restaurant is a little small, so you might be situated closer to other patrons from other tables (so the environment can get a little noisy). If you prefer a more quiet restaurant, you might not like how noisy it can get. Overall however, I think the experience was great!

    Le Baratin means 'loud or boisterous discourse' - it did not disappoint. The food was extremely well prepared and uncomplicated. The was extremely complementary. Everyone, including the 8-top ex-pat Montreal table, were having the absolute best of times. A true Dundas neighbourhood gem - worth the trip from anywhere in Toronto.

    As always the food was delicious. Unfortunately it was very noisy as there was a table of 8 right in the middle of the restaurant and there were some women who had high pitched laughs and little regard for other patrons in the restaurant. At some point, I think it would have been wise to ask them to quiet down. It is great to see people enjoying themselves, but I would have liked to hear our friends too!

    The food taste great, and the price is definitely worth it. It is a little disappointed when we heared that they replace the snails with calamaries though, but the calamaries expressed us. The main course, I love the lamb shank, it is cooked great and easy to cut off. The desert we have a wine porched pear along with cream and something, the pear is a little bit too sweet for me, but it is tasty. Our waiter, Ryan, he is really nice and very enthusiasm, and he gave us many great suggestions. The only problem would be that the environment is a little bit noisy, my friend ane me have to talk really loud too so that we could hear each other. Overall, le baratin is a great place to dine in and I will definitely come back to try the snails.
