Enjoy a taste of France at Le Baratin, 1600 Dundas West, with a unique menu and an enchanting atmosphere.
We offer 2 setting every night; The first dinner service from 5:30 through to 6:30 pm is a maximum of 120 minute dinner experience.
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

                                                        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.

                                                        It does not suite my taste. And the environment is kind of crowded. I do not know if that’s formal French dinner. But it taste so so.

                                                        Great little authentic French bistro. The bistro staple steak frites was perfect. The magret de canard was also excellent. Both starters were also great. Service outstanding as well.

                                                        Loved everything. The food was delicious. We had the gravlax and escargot forestière to start and both were excellent. The salmon had the right amount of pepper and melted in your mouth. Just perfect! My husband had steak frites and it was cooked perfectly like he asked and served with a side salad too to balance the dish. I had the duck confit served with mashed potatoes and vegetables with a gravy sauce on the bottom of the plate. And I finished with crème brûlée à l’orange. Just wonderful and a nice selection of wine. We had a red wine from the Languedoc region of La Clape and it was smooth and not too dry. All in all it was a perfect night out. Thank you to the chef and friendly servers.

                                                        My coworker had an amazing evening over some of the tastiest dishes I’ve had in a long time. We contemplated on what to order so we asked the server for their recommendations. The recommendations hit the spot! The vibe was great, very lively inside. Would definitely come back again one day.

                                                        Overall is good! I like the seafood stew!! It’s fresh and tasty. Lamb shank is a little bit bland for me, but escargot is a little bit salty😂but that is my feeling. They are all good choice! I want to recommend!!!

                                                        The app escargot was freezing cold when it got to our table, tasted like it came straight from a can, super salty, 1 star!!!! 😔 The duck breast was cold too. My friend felt sick after eating there.

                                                        Delightful evening. A mixture of patrons. Amiable service. Dinner was delicious. And we could carry on a conversation because the noise level was very manageable. Quite a rarity nowadays.
