what restaurants have kitchen-view tables?

Recently I went to Marben (loved it; they claim to have the best burger in the city and I think they're right) and noticed they have a counter where you have a close-up of the chefs cooking. Are there any other restaurants with tables like that, especially ones that are open to the general pubic for reservations?

        Canoe had one before the reno. I haven't been back so I can't confirm it's still there, but I'm confident that they would keep a feature like that.

        Black Hoof (no reservations)

        1. Union on Ossington has a great area to watch the chefs. When i was sitting there, they gave us some samples while they were preparing dishes.

          1. Ici Bistro has a spot as well.
