Celebrate a Special Occasion With These Top Toronto Restaurants

That’s not always possible right now, but eating restaurant food is still the optimal way to mark a special moment, whether that’s at the restaurant or in your living room. While indoor dining remains closed in Toronto, outdoor dining and takeout are still ideal options for more low-key celebrations. Read on to book a reservation at some of Toronto’s top special occasion restaurants, with info on outdoor dining and takeout — and dine-in for when that returns.
