This restaurant is an escape to southwestern France right in the Kingsway. The ambience feels like you've truly left the country. Merlot has been an Etobicoke dining destination for decades- the food is fantastic.

The fragrance of the white wine, garlic, shallots and butter in the escargots Bourguignonne was a perfect way to start the meal. The snails were so tasty:

All the classics on the menu from the fresh steamed P.E.I. mussels to the grilled calf liver Lyonnaise were so tempting, but went with the NY striploin with maitre d'hôtel butter and mashed potatoes:

And the duck confit, which was outstanding.

The lovely creme caramel was consumed before photography could occur. An amazing birthday present from amazing family (that even included babysitting.) Rosie :)
