Birthday Dinner

edible n Jul 6, 2012 07:49 AM

Looking to take my wife out for dinner this weekend for her birthday. It's a little last minute primarily because we just had a baby three weeks ago. Hence me coming here for a recommendation - wouldl like to go out for a nice dinner that will be baby friendly (especially if we have a reservation between 6 and 7). Price isn't a huge issue, but not looking to spend at the George, Canoe, North 44 type of price points - definitely something a step or two below that.

Thoughts on what may work - much appreciated and sorry for the last minute request.

    For me baby friendly is somewhere that has a bit of a buzz so that if baby cries it kinda just blends in.

    Taking that into account, your price point request and the short notice I would suggest one of the following places:

    Le Select
    Libretto on the Danforth

      Thanks - love Le Select and have wanted to try both Biff's and Marben. Will let you know what we end up doing

        We have taken our 5 month old to enoteca sociale, Campagnolo, and l'ouvrier on dundas west with no issues. We even brought our Uppababy stroller which is relatively large and all have been able to accommodate us. We did let them know of the stroller when making the reservation. Overall think your best bet of getting a reservation is probably at l'ouvrier. Also they are so baby friendly I couldn't believe the size of their bathroom as well as the brand new change table. Also the bathroom is on the same floor as restaurant so no need to take baby down the stairs. The food is also good - my husband had the short ribs and they were amazing. The burger was also quite good and I love their fries.
