Enjoy a taste of France at Le Baratin, 1600 Dundas West, with a unique menu and an enchanting atmosphere. 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. Jean likes the good old way of preparing food - truly, the proper way! Moreover, there is not a bistro in France that doesn’t serve at least 2 out of the 3 desserts we offer: Tarte au citron, Mousse au Chocolat, and Crème Brulée.
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 curated from France.

We had a lovely dinner. Our server was fantastic. And the food was even better.
Excellent food and great service. We were impressed with everything we ate!
Our server was awesome. The food was great. A total gem of the city.
The prix fixe menu was a great value and the daily specials delicious. Good selection of affordable house wines on offer for a half carafe serving. Very cozy, comfortable ambiance.
The service was EXCEPTIONAL. That made the experience let alone the food was absolute perfection. Delicate flavours, balanced dishes and the wine selection was excellent.
Great service, good food, really enjoyed my evening
Le Baratin is a gem. Delicious food, wonderful service, cozy environment. I have had so many exceptional meals here! Their wine list is amazing. The list goes on.
Food was wonderful and a good variety was offered. We sat outside on Dundas Street and the traffic noise was a bit loud. Great wait staff and very friendly. It wasn't cheap...I spent $325 for dinner for 4 including six alcoholic beverages and tip. I'll be back.
Always warm, wonderful and reliable. We went on one of the first few nights offering both indoor and outdoor dining and the service at the top was not up to the usual excellence. We waited quite a while for the waiter to offer greetings, menus and take drink orders, but it's to be expected given understaffing and other adjustments needed in this COVID transition period. You won't regret this as a dining choice. No matter how many times I go it always feels like a find!
Wonderful, casual bistro with a stand out wine list and menu. Highly recommended.
Always a lovely experience. The staff are curious and attentive. The food is always amazing. YUM YUM YUM. It was great to eat out again.
Great dinner on the patio! We felt welcomed at Le Baratin, with impeccable service and delightful food!
Amazing and nice waitress. The food was excellent and brought me back to my country France. High quality and typical French bistro.
Such a great experience and wonderful wait staff.
Excellent service. Great, authentic French cuisine. Felt like we were at a Bistro in Paris. Looking forward to next visit
Lovely meal, friendly service - so great to be out again! Everything was tasty but I particularly recommend the orange blossom crème brulée! divine.
Great Place, Great People, Great Food. Always a good time.
Awesome authentic French restaurant in the lively little Portugal in Toronto! Am from france and it feels like being back home… had the duck magret, and lemon tart for dessert! And the terrine as a starter… 😋
You need to book in advance…
Nous avons beaucoup aimé les hors-d'oeuvres et les plats et bavarder avec le patron très sympatique. Le jeune serveur était très prévenant et efficace.
The food was really good!! Probably the best I've had in awhile since all we do is do take out, which isn't the same or make our own food. The rack of lamb was delicious. I think our server got a little busy in the beginning after we got sat by 3 other tables so she was a tad busy but overall she was still really good. Would come back ☺️
Our experience was incredible!! I am craving what we ate this morning already! I had the fish in brown butter sauce and my palette was ignited with the most amazing flavours. The fish was cooked to perfection and the brown buttery risotto was to die for! I have been to France on a culinary tour and the meal at this restaurant was on point. Our server was also passionate about the food and well-versed, she was attentive and lovely. The whole experience was 5 stars. I look forward to my next visit already.
Always a fantastic time here. We love this place!
Excellent restaurant , un petit coin de France à Toronto, nous recommandons à 200%.
Les plats , l accueil étaient parfait.
Merci et Bravo
Absolutely brilliant, as always - our go-to local for special nights out. Glad to see they're able to participate in the CafeTO program this summer - looking forward to dining indoors this fall once the restrictions are lifted!
Our server was very courteous and kind. The food was phenomenal. Definitely a little pricey but it was worth it.
Dinner on curb side patio last night - same delish food and wonderful service though in (obviously) a less intimate setting. This is classic French fare, well done. Perfectly balanced cocktails. Neoghbourhiod gem that I am thrilled to see open again 7 days a week (what can I say? I love dining out on a Monday or Tuesday and will avoid it on the weekend at all costs). Thanks!
Very well made dishes. The lingcod was brilliant.
First fancy meal after restrictions abated. It was such a good meal, served with such unobtrusive and thoughtful service that it seemed like a special occasion. The circumstances required us to dine at our wee table on the sidewalk, which made it that much more unique. Thank you.
What a lovely find! A small perfectly French bistro in the heart of Toronto. Great food, fantastic attentive service. We will be back.
If it's sunny, watch out if you're at a table facing west. Food and service were top-notch as usual.
Our favorite spot to dine, staff and food are amazing!!!
Food was very underwhelming. My rack of lamb was completely raw. Not rare. Maybe "blue". The duck was unseasoned. The gravy was okay. The potatoes were fantastic! The menu sounds nicer than it tastes.
Friendly staff though.
A wonderful meal - food, ambiance, service. Don’t miss this place, it is an absolute hidden gem.
Great food and fantastic attentive service without being overbearing.
Service was friendly and waitress had a great sense of humour.
Food was amaaaazing ! Reminded me of Parisian bistro. Wine selection is on point with the heat the Rosé was exquisite.
The chef came to greet which was delightful
Best food ever the service was great the food was amazing I would recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy French food!
The food was phenomenal, some of the best I’ve had outside of Paris. Order the fries and THANK ME LATER. The lamb was spectacular. The chocolate mousse was light, decadent, and probably the best mousse I have ever had. Would highly recommend. It was our first outdoor patio date since the last time patios were allowed to open and it’s definitely not the last time we return to this gem. Good appetite, bon appetit!
Everything we tried was fantastic and service was great!
Food is always excellent and service is fantastic. The homemade gravlax is so good and tasty, the confit vegetables were excellent. My friend goes there for the tartiflette and the desserts!
The patio, being on the street, because of the pandemic, was a bit noisy because of the passing cars.
I really enjoy going to Le Baratin.
