Best restaurant for Birthday?

Kassi22 | Jan 3, 2011 05:05 PM


I'm looking for a new (well, new to us) restaurant to take my partner for his birthday. I'm completely stumped on finding a place as all the reviews I read are all over the place. I wanted to try Canoe, but they are closed for Reno's this month (I'm looking for a few weeks from now).

We have been to several good places (Adega, Lucien, Biffs, 360, Hy's) but are looking for something different that is easily accessible. I am 'thinking' about Ceno which is newly opened in Yorkville... but its a little out of the way for us. I would rather something that is within the Queen street car (no driving as we will have wine, and we live in the beaches). We can walk up or down a few blocks north or south.

We are pretty open to any type of place (Steak and Seafood is our fav though) though I'm limited as I can't have anything heavy in cream or cheese. (I have checked some places with tasting menus that have a lot of this which won't work)

I would also like some place that is romantic and cozy.

Anyone have any other suggestions?

There has to be some place downtown!!! (As there seems to be lots north of Bloor.. boo :( )

Thanks & Cheers
