Reccomendation for a nice, romantic dinner in TO?
I am looking for a nice place to take wife for our wedding annivesary in TO. Budget is $200-$250 + wine.
Our favouritre restauranrs are:
Auberge du Pommier
(yes, got a bit of a bias towards haute French cuisine!)
I am considering:
Splendido (out of budget?)
Thuet (mixed reviews on service?)
Chiado (we like seafood as well)
but open to suggestions...
I would strongly suggest Splendido and their "Exotica Canadiana" menu. from what i re-call it should be about 120-130 per person for the food, well, well, worth it!!! (off hand don't remember how much the wine pairing were, but i do remember that they were fantastic, better than i had emagined)
Its also the most romantic restaurant in Toronto by far, perfect for an anniversary.
I like the restaurants you have chosen (Scaramouche & Auberge du Pommier being my absolute favourites) Might I suggest "The Corner House"...while perhaps not as famous or as often mentioned on this site, it IS very romantic , has generally quiet patrons (doesn't get a lot of exec types on a business account evening...those who tend to drink a lot and get quite voluable...that has happened to me at both Scaramouche and Auberge spoiling an otherwise great anniversary evening. Corner House has very good food, a quiet ambience , good service and easy (free) parking...I think it's a great place to celebrate a special evening.
Mr. Rabbit and I recently had a fantastic dinner at Red's. You might think of this place as more corporate than romantic, but it's a pretty room with tables spaced wide enough for privacy and intimacy. And the food was stellar! Here's our review...
