My fiance and I loved Chantecler. The chicken and brussels sprouts were outstanding, and everything in the duck dish (duck, served with green onion crepes and pickles) complemented each other so well. We also enjoyed the server's suggested wine pairings. We were lucky enough to get a spot by the sous-chef, and watching her prepare dishes was part of the... More

Long wait for service. Limited menu. Food is mediocre. Very noisy. Price to qualiity ratio is poor. Will not go back.

Nestled along the north side of Queen Street West, this Parkdale gem is a must. Unlike many Parkdale restos, they do take dinner reservations. But plan ahead as they fill up quickly and you can reserve only up to a month in advance. Once you've gotten a table, you can expect professional yet casual service in a small but comfortable...

This a great find in Parkdale. Areal French bistro: small, friendly & full. The food is well prepared and presented: small plates, plates to share some for two, some for four. Try the individual French onion soup, cheese balls, snails & mushrooms in puff pastry, duck, chicken etc. I don't think you can go wrong. The lemon parfait is a... More

The Chantecler is a small restaurant, maybe a dozen tables or so, great food, ideal for a group of three or more. Tasty food and very helpful staff. Definitely a place to return to.

It's great to find another French restaurant in Toronto, but in the hipster neighbourhood area of Queen West. Traditional dishes perfectly prepared, service was great and great value for the money.

The food was good, but did not hit it out of the ballpark. They feel understaffed and at times you will have to wait a decent amount of time for service or your food, which is fine if you have hours for dinner but not great if you were just looking for a nice meal at a nice place. Uncomfortable... More

I visited this restaurant with my husband for our date night dinner. We're big foodies and have been going around the city looking for food that is comparable to the likes of restaurants in NYC. This place is very well priced and has fantastic food. Given that Toronto, often does not have the greatest food at a moderate price. I... More

The hubby and I checked out Restaurant Chantecler during our visit to Toronto, and I'm so glad we did!!!!! It's the perfect setting for a intimate dinner for two or a small group. We sat at the bar and were immediately greeted by the bartender. He was very knowledegble about the food and drink menu, and his recommendations were spot... More

I ate at Restaurant Chantecler on Saturday June 18, 2016.  We were a party of 6 in Toronto for a concert.  There was also a soccer game going on and all the restaurants around the venue were packed.  We looked up Restaurant Chantecler online and saw it had good reviews.  We called the restaurant and although they were busy, they...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
