Best Restaurants for Father's Day in Toronto

Showing your Dad you care this year is easy, thanks to these 5 terrific spots.

Wayne Gretzky's Toronto

99 Blue Jays Way, Toronto, ON M5V 9G9

Winning brunch with Walter Gretzky would mean the best Father’s Day EVER for any sports fan Dad. The original "Great One" probably has enough fantastic tales to carry you right through to dinner. And even if Dad doesn’t win, eating amongst his fellow hockey fans is something he’s likely never to forget.

The Longest Yard Restaurant/Bar

535 Mount Pleasant Rd, Toronto, ON M4S 2M5

If Dad wants to get out onto the golf course or watch the game in the afternoon, brunch is a great way to show him you care and still let him have his day. And both locations of The Longest Yard are offering a great spread this year - your choice of vanilla and blueberry pancakes, stuffed french toast, breakfast sandwiches including a Monte Christo, made-to-order omelets, eggs any style, and five varieties of Eggs Benedict. Brunch for a king and you didn't have to lift a finger. Now that's a Father's Day you'll both remember.

Yutaka Japanese Cuisine

157 Dundas St W, Toronto, ON M5B 1E4

Taking your father for sushi might be a regular occurance for some, but believe me, Yutaka’s Japanese cuisine (pictured above) is far beyond your regular maki. Not only is the seafood seasonal, it’s unbelievably fresh, still tasting of the waters from which it came. The presentation is fancy, though the room is not, so Papa will feel at ease. And completely satisfied after some of the best Japanese food in the city.

Lai Wah Heen

2-108 Chestnut St, Toronto, ON M5G 1R3

Dim sum at Lai Wah Heen is an elevated experience, which is perfect for the man who appreciates the finer things in life, without it costing you a fortune. Select from a variety of elegant dumpling fillings – steamed dumplings of fresh lobster escalopes and shrimp in garlic butter; crispy fried pastry filled with foie gras and minced pork; seared crab claw, shrimp and green chive in wonton. Dad deserves better than a simple tie or pack of socks. This year's dim sum meal will prove that.
