Crab Cakes?

Can anyone recommend any restaurant that has decent Crab Cakes on there menu?

I'm looking for something in Toronto, perferably closer to downtown or East TO.

    Not a restaurant, but Domenic's Fish in SLM makes excellent crab cakes for purchase. You can pan fry them up at home.

    I quite like them

      Thanks for the info. I will keep that in mind for future as I go to SLM a lot.

      This time though I have family coming to town and Im taking them out for dinner, one requested a place with Crab Cakes.. There not popular here in TO like they are in other places I have been Im finding.

        I really like the curry crab cakes at Insomnia on Bloor.

        Also, Fire on the East Side has nice crab cakes.

        Both are downtown. Good luck!

          Zee Grill (Mt. Pleasant, south of Eglinton) has a good crab cake appetizer that I imagine they would be willing to turn into a main if you ask them.

              I'll have to say that i haven't had a real outstanding crab cake in toronto yet.
              i find the Buster's sea cove one to be extremely overwhelmed with the roasted red peppers they put in it.
