I've enjoyed the food and service at Papillon a few times and every time I come away thinking I am being "ripped" on the wine. They price their wine at 400%-500% of cost and pure and simple that is arrogant and gouging. I won't be back.

Their crepes are fine, if you like them dry and cold

Their chicken crepe is incredible!- chicken, spinach, carmelized onions, bechemal sauce & cheddar!! This is my 5th location with this restaurant since the mid 1970's. I do think that they need to have a cheaper wine choice though!

Avoid this place! Took the in-laws for dinner to The Papillon for an early Christmas gathering. First: one of the owners, sat us down, then dissappeared for 10 minutes. We had to signal one of the staff to take our orders. Second: it took 40-50 minutes to cook our meals; either they ran out of food in the kitchen or the owners have zero restaurant experience. Third: the food presentation, quality and flavours are an embarrasement to the Toronto culinary scene; Papillon has been flying under the radar, banking on people swallowing atrocious food because of their prices and "fine dining" farce. Four: if the owners are reading this- you ALL need a lesson in culinary prep and restaurant management. Do Toronto a favour, close your restaurant and get out of town if you know what is good for you.

Another reason to avoid this place: discriminatory employers ruin my appetite

To our patrons, friends and loyal people who have work for the Bigue family, we are happy and sincere and merci for all the support and kindness you have shown on this time when we are facing a uphill battle with the tribunal. We are keeping very positive. Patrons, the workers who are taking us to tribunal have a different idea about how our family run business. It is sad and at same time hurtful that immigrants we try to support want to take advantage of our kindness and genirosity. We are always supporting bengladesh and we are sponsor a tiger in a sanctuary in bengladesh and next month we are visiting a factory in dhaka to give candy and chocolates to little factory workers who make tshirt. We are asking patrons, everyone in toronto support the bigue family and bengladesh and sponsor a tiger. Merci & au revoir!

No crepe is good enough to make me go to Papillon. The Ontario Human Rights Tribunal bases its decisions on evidence and Papillon management has much to answer for. Appalling. http://www.thestar.com/news/world/2013/12/17/3_muslim_restaurant_workers_awarded_100000_in_discrimination_case.html

Perhaps those of you who have read the Toronto Star article should hear both sides of the story! I have been a customer of Papillon since they opened in the 1970;s (bee to 5 locations now) - the owners are wonderful people. The staff that went to the tribunal had worked there for 20 years - if it is that awful of a place to work you would not stay for that long. This was a well thought out scheme and is now being appealed. I suggest that before you make comments like the ones above you hear both sides of the story! I am a regular customer - as a matter of fat we ate there last nite!!!
