Wheelchairs? West end?

I'm looking for a restaurant that would be *fully* wheelchair accessible, off in the west end of Toronto, into Etobicoke, but not into Mississauga (well, unless it's really, really good). By fully, I mean not just to enter and navigate, but that actually has wheelchair accessible washrooms. I'm frustrated by websites, etc., that claim that the restaurant is wheelchair accessible, only to find upon visiting, or explicitly enquiring, that the washroom is down in the basement.

The style of cuisine is not important, so long as the quality is good.

Thanks, hounds!

    Hey there,

    My brother is in a wheelchair so I can give you suggestions as to where we've been. He lives in Barrie but we've eaten out when he's visited.

    I'm at Kipling/queensway. Thats greek, a greek place just west of islington on queensway, is fantastic. its my favourite greek place in toronto never mind the west end, and is fully accessible.

    Rocco's on islington north of queensway is good, although a little hit and miss on dishes, and also accessible. The mall is accessible, there is a pickle barrel in there that is... well its pickle barrel. i lvoe the brunch, the rest is so so. also very accessible.

    very casual but decent food is the grill on the queensway over by east mall north side, decent food and also accessible. i imagine all the chains (east side, montanas, jack astors) likely are accessible, although I can't tell you first hand.

    hope that helps, enjoy!

      I need names, please. Greek would work well, especially if it's as good as you say.

        The name of the Greek restaurant torontochris mentioned is "Thats Greek".

        Rocco's Plum Tomatoe is good for pasta's and the fried calamari is really good.

          It might be called "That's Greek Cuisine" (1045 The Queensway). I've never been there, but it's a Greek restaurant at Islington & Queensway, near the Cineplex.

              "That's confusing" says the pangolin. But, thank you. I'll try that one.
