Looking for a fun, casual resto with a patio for Vic. Day dinner

I'm looking for a fun, casual place for dinner this Victoria Day Monday. In a bit of a funk and need some inspiration. The ability to make a reservation is important and a patio is a bonus. Midtown, Downtown preferred. Many thanks.

  1. How about La Hacienda on Queen W?

    1. Bit of a funk? Then you must go to the back patio at Bairrada Churrasqueira on College St., and cheer yourself up with a heaping plate of spicey clams.

      1. College Street? Utopia? Sotto Voce? Bar Italia? All are fun and have decent patios. and all are casual.

        Bar Italia Restaurant
        168 Court St S, Thunder Bay, ON P7B2X6, CA

        College Street Bar
        574 College St, Toronto, ON M6G1B3, CA

        1. Perhaps the Queen & Beaver? They do take reservations, have a pretty rooftop, good cocktails, and a certain thematic suitability considering the occasion.

          PS - I recommend the fish and chips and the sticky toffee pud.
