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.

This sleepy little bistro is worth a visit, if you appreciate classic French cuisine. It’s a neighbourhood restaurant with mostly regulars, but food quality always high and service is friendly. Daily soups and steak frites are a staple.

Once again we were pleased with both the food and service at Merlot. A great French bistro is the west end of Toronto. Consistent offerings with seasonal inclusions. Best to book mid evening when the din of the first sitting settles down.

I have been to this place several times. Service is good and food is good. I will go back. I only wish they had a better selection for dessert. That is the only course I do not eat there. Apps and entrees are excellent.

We had a lovely dinner here. The food was excellent and service was great. The restaurant has a nice ambiance, nicely appointed with tablecloths on the tables. Good menu selections. Very close to the subway stop. Would definitely recommend

We went as a group of eight and had reserved the table a week prior. The seating was cramped and the restaurant was very noisy as it was packed. Our ears were ringing by the end of the evening. The food was above average but...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.

Not sure. But I would think calling ahead would clear up your question.
