We look forward to welcoming you to La Banane.
Service was fantastic, food was excellent. banana cake is a must-have....little too much salt in the salted caramel ice cream.
Amazing dinner and service from start to finish. Love this restaurant!
The quality of the food and overall experience was excellent. Even though we were seated at the bar, the service was attentive and friendly. The restaurant was bustling without making it at all difficult to converse. And the food—from the “low brow” fried chicken to the most perfect omelette I’ve ever eaten to the interesting and delightful cold charred zucchini—was exceptional. Every dish we ordered was a perfect showcase of its ingredients, but without any undue bravado or affectation. Recommended.
I'm a saucy girl and usually I find that restaurants - even French - don't serve enough to last through the meal. I'm always asking for more. This restaurant, however, is the opposite extreme. Food is SWIMMING in sauce and while flavourful, it makes the overall dish sickeningly rich. I also think it's essential with dishes as rich as these ones to include some type of green - it's absolutely needed for balance and expecting the diner to order a side is a rip off. I know this is the trend but it always feels like a gouge.
Had a wonderful time at La Banane! They seated us right in front of the raw bar in a booth, just like i asked. The seafood platters are worth every penny! Got the Petite Plateau $145 - for 2 its enough for a full meal, best to share for at least 3-4. I highly recommend all the seafood. Very fresh and large portions - the oysters were my favourite! The eurobass $42 was cooked very well, but I didn't enjoy the yuzu beurre blanc - it was too acidic and it tasted very floral and it was very salty - its baked with a salted crust however the amount salt was overwhelming, it made it hard to finish. The pommes aligot were creamy and fluffy - Recommend. We finished off with the Banana cake? and salted ice cream - amazing, you have to order this! We also got the box of 9 chocolates, expensive $24 - we splurged. Go for the seafood and the banana cake + ice cream!
World class restaurant! Very special place.
Nice decor. Good service. Portions were small for the price.
It was a treat night and La Banane is certainly a treat! We had a great meal and good wine and our server was delightful! The decor is also beautiful!
The quality of food and level of service was exceptional
Staff was outstanding. Food was amazing. Wine markups were a bit over the top.
One of my new favorites in Toronto. Quality is top, creativity at its utmost level as well . Bravo.
Fabulous food... we had the tasting menu in order to try as many dishes as possible. Nothing disappointed! The omelette, something I would not normally order, was phenomenal- light, creamy, delicate mix of herb and egg. A must ! Great sommelier. He knew the wines well and give us n excellent recommendation.
We celebrated a special birthday on a Wednesday evening and La Banane truly went out of their way to make us feel special. The food was fantastic and the staff were terrific. Thanks again!
It was one of the best meals ever
The food was perfect and so were the staff. The design and lighting were fantastic. Would highly recommend the La Banane experience!
We came here for a birthday celebration. The service was incredible. We splurged on the Ziggy Stardust Disco Egg for dessert and were not disappointed! The fish that comes baked in a puff pastry is to die for. (I forgot the name but ask your server.)
Outstanding meal. Server wowed us. Each course was creative and just all around delicious. Coming back ASAP. Thx for a great night.
This was our first visit and we weren't disappointed. The service and food were both excellent - a healthy portion of pate with a prune puree was lovely - my husband's crab was a "bit" too salty and my duck a bit too fatty, but still delicious. My one gripe and it is a common one in Toronto is that the wine servings (glass and bottle) are expensive and the glasses are very skimpy. We have been spoiled by our visits to Europe where wine flows freely and it's all excellent. I would like to see a special hour devoted to cheaper wine prices.
Outstanding cuisine and fabulous service by Christopher! Sweetbreads were tasty and seared foie gras was done to perfection! Kudos!
We had a great time, we sat at the bar and the service was great. The one item I wouldn’t recommend was their Bibb salad, it was extremely underwhelming. They ended up taking it off the bill. The cocktails were delicious too!
La Banane was amazing from start to finish. The service was impeccable. The food was amazing. We did the tasting menu and were pleasantly surprised. Our waiter chose all our courses and there were many. We chose our own wine to go with our courses which suited us. We were not stuffed which was great , just pleasantly sated. I would go back there again for sure. You should make a reservation and they are fairly busy so don’t leave it til the last minute..
Love La Banane, the food is delicious and beautifully presented. The wait staff have been lovely both times I've been. I definitely recommend though maybe not for every day depending on your budget, it isn't super cheap. For two people, one appetizer, a bottle of wine, two main courses, a side dish and a dessert was about 200 before tip, but in my opinion well worth it
We went here for my birthday dinner. The service and the food were very good - but nothing on the menu will keep me coming back. Seems a little overpriced.
Delicious. Great service. Perfect for a special occasion. Will definitely be back and highly recommend!
Food was excellent through all courses without a misstep. Highlight was the Albacore tuna with brown butter - wonderfully rich but balanced out with the acidic capers. Fantastic, if pricey, wine recommendation that helped elevate the meal.
Overall an exceptional spot for a celebration.
This is for me the definition of proper dinning. Impeccable service. Thank you!
Eating out 5 nights a week , I am always looking for new exciting restaraunts ...started w the tuna ..visually unimpressed.. but flavour crazy good. The capers and herbs that covered the tuna outstanding...finished w the duck ..perfectly cooked complimented w outstanding service and great drinks n wine. La banane is a must go to restaraunt while in T
This is a great little restaurant with a lot of pleasant surprises. The food was exceptional starting with the staff's and the chef's understanding of quality, and the time and care they took to make sure it was prepared and presented at its optimum, all adding to a great dining experience. I liked the serving sizes; made for sharing and giving you an option to try more than one menu item.
Très bon restaurant. Cuisine un peu salée, mais c'était peut-être juste en fonction des plats commandés. Un meilleur conseil au niveau du nombre de plats à commander aurait été apprécié.
Salmon roe tasted very fishy and I’ve had the best (in Japan)
The food was absolutely incredible. The wine list was a work of beauty!! The restaurant is aesthetically gorgeous. I cannot say enough
Second time coming. Really very good. We had the mini plateau between 3 people and then 4 appetizers to share. The albacore tuna is amazing. I have had this twice and still good. We finished ally tried the Disco Egg! Very unique and good dark chocolate. Just a bit miffed they don’t offer decal espresso or decaf coffee.
The plateau plates from the raw bar are a must! Service was impeccable!
Service was outstanding...some of the best I've ever had in the city. Food was right up there too.
Great atmosphere, delicious food and very good service.
We were only 2 people, so limited in how much we could eat without going over. We had their seafood platter, which was amazing. Everything tasted so fresh! Cocktails were great as well.
For a special occasion, we had the disco egg - it's pretty big and great presentation! Truffles/chocolates inside were delicious. Enough to just try once.
We would like to return to try other items on the menu.
Excellent service, cocktails, and food!
