Looking for a wine cellar private dining venue...

I'm searching for a restaurant/venue that can hold a private dining function in a wine cellar....does anyone know of/experienced this in Toronto? I am planning a special birthday celebration for my husband and would love to give him a wonderful dining experience with some of his closest friends.

  1. Barbarians has a spectacular cellar for dining.

    1. Biagio has a good large table in its cellar, as well as a good selection of Barolos and Barbarescos. Nice old building.

      1. Chiado and Adega both have private cellar dining rooms that seat up to 20. Cozy and very nice.

          NOt sure what your date is but if Splendido is re-opened in time they have spectacular cellar room dining

        2. Roughly how many people?
          I've been to Adega, Barberian's, Chiado, & Splendido (I was told the renovation will leave the wine cellar untouched - re-opening 28 July).

            looking at 30 people....thanks you and to all who responded! I'll look into all of the above!

              30 might be a bit large for Biagio.

                30 is definitely too large for Adega and Chiado, sorry. :(

                  The Splendido location may just work. I think they can hold 32, but it would be tight. I was there with 26.

            2. It's not a wine cellar but Kultura has a beautiful private dining room on the top floor that has a "wall of wine". The atmosphere is fantastic, beautiful exposed brick and lots of beautiful bottles to gaze at. I had a private party there last year for 32 people and it was a huge hit!
