Business dinner, relaxed and refined atmosphere, near Trump International Hotel?
I have been tasked with making a dinner reservation for this weekend in Toronto for a colleague. Obviously would need to be something that has availability on short notice, which I know can be a very limiting factor. I haven't been to Toronto in a very long time - almost 20 years - so I have no idea what to choose! Any suggestions for restaurants with great steak (other options, too, but they seem to love steak) that are also appropriate for a business dinner and relatively close to the hotel? I did some searches but didn't find anything recent and spot on for requirements. They have specifically requested a relaxed and elegant atmosphere, too. Price isn't really an issue.
Thanks so much in advance!
Harbour 60 is one of the high end steak restaurants and you should still be able to get a reservation on Opentable. It is within walking distance (about 15 minute walk).
Closer to the Trump and more casual is Reds Wine Tavern
If the dinner is on a Friday you could try Canoe which is a very nice place to take someone for a business dinner. They are closed Saturday and Sunday though.
Latest reviews I have read about Reds have been pretty poor. I had a good meal there a couple of years ago but based on current reviews I probably won't be going back.
Having said that, I haven't read any reviews lately, so, I don't know how it is (you can search on here but I think there is a write up about it on Dine.To as well) but Michael's on Simcoe is a steakhouse that is a bit closer than the two recommended on this tread already 7 minute walk). Again, not sure if it is worth the money or not. I would also consider Luma at the Lightbox, another O&B Restaurant. I have had 2 good meals there in the past.
