It started out great with a very tasty wild mushroom soup. This is where it ended. I ordered the short ribs which are supposed to be their "winter special". To say the least, they were awful - overcooked and tasteless. I sent them back and ordered the trout special. The trout arrived half raw and tasted like an old sock, and smelly. My partner ordered the "seafood hot pot." It looked more a soup on top of vermicelli. The seafood was way overcooked and this dish was also tasteless.

We did not order dessert, as we were anxious to get out of there. On a positive note, the service was excellent. Our server, Jay, was very attentive and professional, so we left him a good tip. He did give us a complimentary glass of wine to try to make up for the lousy food I guess. Thank heavens we had a coupon and did not pay the full price! This place needs a new chef for sure, and we will never go back.

This was our first time at this bistro. My wife and I have been searching for that "special" bistro since our favorite restaurant on Thurlow closed down. As a professionally trained chef (x chef), all I can say is "WOW!" The food was awesome with that classic french country flair which we love so. For an appetizer, we shared a piece of "tarte onion Alsacienne" which was yummy. We did get the recipe from our waiter, and will try it at home.

For the main, I had the best duck confit ever - accompanied with a duck stock reduction/balsamic cream sauce on a bed of plump home baked beans, and a half grilled peach, which I thought was quite unique. The sauce was so flavorful, and matched the duck perfectly. My wife had the chicken gallantine with red wine reduction, which she also loved. Again - full of flavour.

For the dessert we shared a very custardy "like creme brulee" with plums on the bottom and home made praline on top - again - so rich and delicious.

We also had a couple of glasses of red wine with our meal. The selection isn't huge, but it is well thought out (thank heavens they don't serve Yellow Tail). As a french wine lover, it was pleasant to see a good selection of french wines at decent prices. The Chateau Haut Vigneau (Bordeaux) was perfect with our mains. Although the wine was served too warm, they did chill it for us when requested. Why is it that restaurants serve red wine too warm and not at "cellar" temperature (17-18C, 60-65F) like they should? The wine prices were reasonable compared to other restaurants, where they way overcharge for wines!!

The service was excellent also. Our only complaint was that our server would sneak out for a smoke now and then, and come to our table smelling like a chimney - PU - not a good thing when you are eating. Work on that one guys.

We left with full tummies, and, all in all, we will definitely go back there again soon, and would recommend it at the drop of a hat.

Well done Pied-a-Terre!!
