Birthday restaurant recommendation with good food and good atmosphere?
I'm looking for a restaurant in downtown Toronto for a birthday celebration.
Table of 4.
Birthday girl is a foodie and willing to try anything. No limitations on price.
Also searching for good atmosphere and crowd.
Colborne Lane, George, and Panagea. I also really like The Harbord Room, but the place is quite small; not much space between the tables

In terms of a group of girls for a fun and yummy dinner, I'd suggest Origin or Foxley.
Foxley won't take a reservation, but they'll take your cell number when you arrive and you can go for a drink up or down ossington while you wait.
Both places have a "small-plates" menu, but as a self-proclaimed foodie - I love having the ability to try lots of different things. Plus, I loved the cocktails at Origin.
Have a great time

The Black Hoof. No reservations. Cash only. There are lines (for a reason!). Try avoiding prime-time and you should be ok. Great cocktails, great food.
Was there anything you found on the board that piqued your interest? There are a couple of new restaurants with a buzz, but I've not yet been.
If you want along the lines of Canoe, go with George for the tasting menu or Splendido for a slightly less formal dining experience. Nota Bene is more trendy/lively and the food is strong (just not super-awesome as an average).
