Mid-week Prix Fixe menu?

Hi guys,

I'm looking for a restaurant in Toronto that has a great Prix Fixe menu for a mid-week dinner. We're trying to save some money yet whet our appetite for great food.

Anywhere in Toronto is ok.

  1. The $22 prix fixe at Sidecar - http://www.sidecarrestaurant.ca/ - has gotten a lot of praise. It was originally just a Tuesday thing, but now it runs Sunday to Wednesday.

      We just went to Sidecar for the prix fixe on Sunday and it was excellent. The steak frites was outstanding and well worth the money. It's seriously one of the best deals in TO right now and shouldn't be missed.

        Great rec!
        My bf took me there for my bday in July and we tried the prix fixe. It was fantastic. Drinks were great too.

        We were thinking of trying somewhere new but definately, Sidecar is on our short list.

        1. re: Hondapendragon

          They're a bit pricy on the drinks but man that Mojito is killer!

        2. re: abigllama

          I completely agree. I went to Sidecar on a date on a Wednesday. The service was excellent, the food was amazing, and the drinks were delicious. I'd say go if you have the chance!

      2. Zucca at Yonge and Eglington. Check their web site for details but I believe it was around $20 for salad, any pasta and any dessert.

          I would second this rec. Excellent pasta. $25 for salad, pasta and dessert.
          Nota Bene also offers a Pre-dinner theatre menu (but only on days that there is a ballet or opera at the 4 Seasons). 5:00-6:30PM. I'll post up the menu once I upload pics.

          Cheers!

        2. Le Select, La Palette and Midi Bistro are all (French) spots with prix fixe options between $35 (LS) and $28 (Midi).... but menu options are (sometimes quite) limited. All are very pleasant bistro-y places to eat (although I've had wreck-my-dinner service issues at LP).

            Agreed! Last two visits have been great at LP, but there was a moody, pregnant lady server that almost ruined a meal or two for me there.

          2. If you're in the east end, there's a little restaurant called Bistro Camino that has a great fixed price menu, very extensive and the quality's consistently good.
            There are other posts on here about it.

            1. Maybe the new George Brown Chef House? $25 for 4 courses, $21 for 3, $18 for 2

                Really? I hadn't thought of that. Is that on campus?

                1. re: Hondapendragon

                  It's just West of King and Sherbourne, at 215 King Street East. It's pretty fun as experiences go, because it's cute watching the students do their thing.

                  1. re: canadianbeaver

                    How is quality then, as compared to price?

                    1. re: jennjen18

                      I totally lied, too, their website says for dinner it's $39 for 3 courses and $45 for four courses!!! They've only been open since Monday, so it was hard to really judge. They need to work the kinks out still...the food was very good, and we were all stuffed at the end, but I can't say you can't find better quality/price comparisons somewhere else. It's more about getting pretty good food and supporting the students. But I am not sure that it would ever be worth $45....

                    1. re: canadianbeaver

                      Interesting idea. But not really what I had in mind.
                      I'm looking for a place with consistently good food that has a night when it offers cheaper prices.

                    1. Alize, north of Yonge and Eglinton, has a $25 prix fixe menu every day of the week (which I think is great for the weekends). Includes soup/salad, selected entrees, and a dessert (cheesecake is a $1 extra). I can't seem to find it on the website but it is on their paper menu.

                      1. I remember seeing a prix fixe menu at Romagna Mia, near St Lawrence Market, but it's not on their site. It was around $40.
