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.

    How about La Hacienda on Queen W?

      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.

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

          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.
