Suggestions for a fun dinner with senior US executives?

Can anyone help suggest a place for 10-12 for a business dinner? Not surprisingly, the US execs like steak and seafood but I don't want a stuffy steak house. Something a little bit interesting with excellent food and ambience. Any suggestions???!!!

    Have they been to Toronto before? Canoe is always a good bet for first time visitors, on account of the view.

      Thanks for the suggestion - it is a very good one. They come to Toronto a few times a year and they have been there before.

      Jacob's & Co is a modern, non-stuffy, relaxed-atmosphere-type Steak house - might be a good fit.

        nota bene has a dry age section, splendido has a 65 day dry age steak.

          I would recommend Splendido as well

            And I find it feels more casual now while they still offer great service.

              Splendido! Maybe the room downstairs if you want more privacy?

                  I don't think you can take a business outing to a resto that doesn't take reservation. That could truly be a terrible evening.

            Thanks to all for the great suggestions! Does anyone have experience with the "wine cellar" private room at Enoteca Sociale? What do you think?

              It's a nice room and you get a view of the cheese room. However didn't think the bench was that comfortable for a long dinner.
