The best French restaurants in Toronto might deal in a relatively limited quantity of dishes, but they show off a wide variety of approaches to the country's much-loved cuisine. There was a time when it might have been possible merely to divide the city's French offerings into the categories of casual bistro and upscale dining room, but as the list below shows, there's a growing middle ground where some of the most exciting cooking is happening.
To a great extent, one's mood will dictate what qualifies as the perfect French meal. While establishments like Auberge de Pommier and Ici Bistro offer the most refined of fare, neighbourhood bistros like Batifole and La Palette offer diners a butter-soaked experience that's tough to beat. Oh, and do make sure to order some wine: it wouldn't be a French meal without it.
These are the best French restaurants in Toronto.
