Toronto restaurant with private room for small weding?


First CH post so I hope all goes well :) I have a bunch of questions so I thought it would be best to split them up into various topics.

Fiance and I are undecided about what to do for our wedding, we want to keep it small.
We keep flip flopping between a ceremony/cocktain reception at The Rosehill for 65 ppl, eloping (in Ontario), or having a small event for 20 ish people in the GTA.

Yesterday while walking around Yorkville and the Yonge/Bloor area we were inspired by all the little restaurants and lovely old buildings.

Finally, here is my question:

Can anyboyd recommend some of the top Toronto restaurants that may have a private room? Something that could accommodate about 20 people so that we could have a more intimate dinner after a private ceremoney elsewhere in the city. Something that wouldn't need a lot of decorating on the inside (that's one thing we love about The Rosehill--its sexy enough on the inside to not need much decor).

  1. I remember attending a wedding at Elmwood Club many years ago. I am not sure if it is still in business but I do recommend it if it is still in business. It was compact and functional place for a small wedding.

      Thanks, I've jotted it down on my "to research" list :)

    2. If you are looking for Yorkville / Rosehill specifically, you may want to look at Sopra (more modern feel) or Malena (which is in a really nice old building). They can both accomodate up to 20 and I have attended events there recently. The Rosehill is a great space but both food and service can be very spotty. Also in Yorkville would be Il Posto Nuovo (though haven't been there in years)

        Thanks. I'm not sure what you meant about food at The Rosehill being spotty....they don't serve food, you have to bring in your own caterer for which I was considering Daniel et Daniel. Also, after meeting with the manager Kirby, I have no concerns that their service or that of the caterer would be questionable.

      2. Do you want Yorkville specifically? If you are willing to go a little southeast, George has beautiful private rooms.

          I've done a few searches on the forum and George seems to get recommended A LOT. Seems promising so I will look into getting a quote, thanks :)
