Interesting place to Dine with Friends and Family

In just less than 2 weeks, the earth will be at its spring equinox and hence celebrations for my New Years begin (the Persian New years or Nowruz; see if interested).

In the past years, my family and a couple of friends with their families go to an Iranian event. This usually involves a big hall with A LOT of people and a lot of round tables with fixed 3 or 4 course meals, some after dinner shows (catwalk, for example), followed by live music and dancing.

This year, we decided to do something else. We're thinking of having dinner at a restaurant, but we want it to be something more than just good food. For example, I remember there used to be a spanish restaurant on College and Bathurst that had Flamingo shows with dinner. Now, it doesn't have to be a live dance or a live show or anything; it could be whatever, so long as it's more than 'sitting-eating-leaving,' has good food, and a good atmosphere.

Any suggestions? And by the way, this is for the GTA.
