I took my friend there last night to celebrate her birthday. We had the 3 course set menu which included a glass of bubbly. At $55 pp it was an excellent value. There were several choices for each course. The portions were huge and everything...More

The restaurant was buzzing on a Wednesday night but you could still talk to your table mates. The menu is large, with light versions of French classics. We particularly loved the country pâté, served with good bread, mustard and homemade cornichons. The wine list was...More

I have been to Merlot on different occasion and the food is always just right. Our waitress was a young lady from south of France with an adorable accent. Any chance I get to go to this restaurant I go.

Dined with friends at Merlot last night, which we had always considered a "cut above" most local restaurants, but we were very disappointed this time. The service was offhand at best and border on being rude when we were trying to pay the bill. Such...More

My friend and I both had the quiche, which came with a nice salad, enjoyed both. Service was fast and very friendly. Have to go back here more often, except one has to pay for parking, which isn't cheap in this area.

En Français for sure: charming, formal waiter with a soupçon of puckish wit. Overall, the food is excellent: my wife's rare rack of lamb was superbe and those frîtes are to gain weight for. My provimi calf's liver was incroyable. Over the years we have...More

Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.
