Dinner around Yonge & Front

Looking for a good place to eat for 2 on a Thurs night that's walking distance to Yonge & Front. Price isn't a big limitation, just want it to have a fun atmosphere and great food. Thinking about Trevor (it's also on, Lucien (though I've read some bad things recently) or Bravi. I'd prefer to stay away from corporate-type places like Vertical. Appreciate any suggestions.

  1. I am not sure about "fun atmosphere" and not even sure about the food, but, I have had catered food at various event's from Paganellis ( and really enjoyed it.

    Biff's Bistro is pretty decent too but maybe that falls into the "corporate type" based on ownership?

    1. Colbourne Lane is a unique experience

      Swish By Han has a good atmosphere, recent reviews seem mixed, esp the service

      Garbadine is a great place, a little more of a walk

      1. I haven't been in a couple of years, but Wine Bar at 9 Church St. used to be pretty reliable.

        1. i haven't been to the 3 restaurants you mentioned in years...haven't heard much about them.
          i'll second swish by han for fun & yum.
          everything else that comes to mind would definitely have a 'corporate' crowd. especially on a thursday night...o & b, ki, blowfish, beerbistro.

          1. Thanks for the suggestions. Swish By Han looks like a great possibility and I hadn't considered it. Will likely give that a try.
