With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and restaurants filling up fast, we encourage you to start planning the most romantic night of the year right now and book your resos asap. To make your preparations effortless, we’ve rounded up the 6 best places to book your dinner for you and the one you love. Check out the list below:
We discovered this option while brunching at this restaurant last weekend. The V-Day menu features a lighter fare as well as some “romantic” options including a pink lemonade, tea infused ganache, and dark chocolate heart truffle. There isn’t an item on this menu that doesn’t sound appealing!
Perks: coat check, friendly staff, fantastic location – Queen East, and tons of paid parking including a Greep P
Located in the heart of the Distillery District, this cozy spot offers both sweet and salty options. The restaurant describes its menu items as “if decadence were a country, these would be its capital cities”. What we love most are all the sharing plates to make your night even more romantic!
Perks: located in the DD, perfect for chocolate lovers, street parking and Green P parking available
Though this restaurant does not have a special menu for V-Day, I must say this spot is one of my favourites and one of the most romantic spots in the city. O.Noir translates as “its better in the dark” and that’s exactly true with this restaurant. All the waiters are visually impaired and the restaurant is pitch black to give patrons the experience of using all senses other than sight. We highly recommend this one!
Perks: Groupon available, coat check, very intimate, no phones allowed (in the dining room)
Offering a 3 course $60 prix fix menu, this is a very exciting option for V-Day. I find this restaurant very romantic with the dim lighting and warm atmosphere. Not only is there the prix fix but there are the classic add-ons like oysters available. Aphrodisiac anyone?
Perks: seasonal drinks, great wine, romantic, access by public transit
Death in Venice has teamed up with Chopped Canada winner Kaya Ogruce to present a 3-course chocolate culinary experience for $69. The meal comes with a glass of Prosecco as well! WE’RE IN!

Perks: prosecco glass included, street parking and paid parking available, in the heart of downtown Toronto
For $275 per couple, Ripleys’s is offering a 3-course dinner and bottle of wine in one of their intimate galleries. The night includes a complimentary souvenir photo and live entertainment!
Perks: complimentary coat check, complimentary souvenir, access to public transit
Toronto’s one-of-a-kind speakeasy and restaurant, 86’d, offers guests an experience unlike any other. Guests are served by the chef, mixologist and the owner of the restaurant instead of the wait staff, giving the place a more intimate atmosphere and making it a perfect place to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Book your reservation via email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Perks: The menu focuses on zero waste, hyper-local ingredients, and changes each week. 86’d also has no regular cocktail menu – instead, guests will be asked what mood they’re in, what flavours they’d like, and each drink is custom made to order.
