Lucien: highly recommended
Was taken to Lucien for my birthday last week. Best "fine dining" resto I've been to in Toronto in a long time; last big excitement was Colborne Lane, and this was better. Attractive environment, quiet enough to talk, unobtrusive service, and I loved everything I ate. I don't remember all the dishes but both of us were very happy... I had a fish dish (? halibut) and a wonderful vegetable dish with crisped broccoli that added so much to the texture.
We went to Splendido the same week and didn't like the food nearly as much, for at least twice (maybe 3 times) the price.
