Restaurants in Toronto’s downtown Financial District

Whether you regularly commute into the city for work or enjoy what the downtown core has to offer on your days off, the Financial District is constantly buzzing with life and excitement. Enjoy a coffee or watch the big game on TV – you’ll always find something fun.

The Chase Fish & Oyster

1
10 Temperance St, Toronto, ON M5H 1Y4

Seafood is definitely one kind of cuisine you don’t want to mess around with when it comes to quality. Enjoy a plate of Malpeque oysters with a glass of white and a side of shoestring fries, or go for heartier fare like a burger or flat iron steak. Everything’s prepared so carefully, you can’t go wrong with anything you order. Reservations are highly recommended, and you can book private dinners for up to 16 guests.

Hy's Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar

2
120 Adelaide St W, Toronto, ON M5H 1T1

This is where real meat-lovers go for an excellent steak. Its motto is “times change; classics remain”, and you’ll get a mixture of history and innovation with every meal here. There’s steak in every aspect of the menu – except dessert – and you can find all of your favourites cooked exactly the way you want. The high ceilings, elegant wood decor and impeccable service make every meal one to remember.

Irish Embassy Pub & Grill

3
49 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M5E 1J1

This rare resto-bar excels in food and service, despite the tourist-friendly location on Yonge Street. It’s spacious but cozy in its grand size and while the volume is almost always a little loud, you can definitely hunt down a quieter corner for one-on-one conversations. For sports fans, they frequently show games on their TVs and offer an impressive draught selection to match each type of event.

One King West Hotel & Residence

4
1 King St W, Toronto, ON M5H 1A1

This historic hotel and residence opens its doors to the public with three dining hotspots: Henri’s Bar, Bistro on King and Cafe Plenty. Each one is designed to accommodate different culinary styles and customer bases, making this block the perfect destination for anything you need in a typical 24-hour period: quick breakfast before work, networking and drinks with clients or taking the family out for a special meal. Get your camera out for this heritage-designated building.

Dineen Coffee

5
140, Yonge St, Toronto, ON M5C 1X6

Life goes at an incredibly fast pace in the Financial District and coffee is one of the most popular fuels to keep everyone going. Not just any brew will do though, as downtowners demand high-quality beans well before the sun’s up for the day. Open at 6:30 a. m. on weekdays, Dineen Coffee also offers catering services and rents space out for events. Imagine how your special event would look with an authentic Royal York Hotel chandelier as the conversation starter.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
