Suggestions Wanted: Downtown Dinner for 18

Hi hounds.

I am planning a dinner for 18. We don't mind spending some money. Criteria:

1. Downtown central
2. Good drinks and food (duh)
3. Private dining room a plus

Previous dinners were at Colborne Lane and Nota Bene. We preferred Nota Bene, although both were good. We ate at the little semi-private room in Nota Bene; it was great. Anything similar would be wonderful.

I thank you in advance for your suggestions.


Colborne Lane
45 Colborne Street, Toronto, ON M5E 1P8, CA

Nota Bene
180 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON M5V 2A1, CA

  1. No private dining, but my current fave that meets 1 & 2 is Origin. This'll bypass some of the flash:

    Bonus Round: Post-dinner drinks at the Consort Lounge in the King Eddie only a 60 second walk away.

    109 King St E, Toronto, ON M5C, CA

    1. Ame has a beautiful private space and I've always had a great meal. The big bonus for me are the amazing cocktails. Some of the best I've ever had.

        Thanks so much for the suggestions. I think we will go with Ame. But, both good suggestions which I appreciate.

          Personally, Fwagra, I don't care for Ame. I hope your experience differs. Prior to committing I would suggest taking it out for a dinner for two test drive.
