Best restaurants in the Toronto Financial District


Pizza and appetizers at King Taps Restaurant in Toronto

King Taps

If you’re looking for elevated pub food and an endless selection of craft beers on tap, King Taps in the Financial District is the place to go.

Their food and cocktails are absolutely delicious, and they have happy hour deals every single day!

The restaurant itself is also huge, with plenty of seating inside the restaurant or on the massive two-storey patio (partially covered if you’re visiting on a rainy day)!

Their Frozen Margaritas are heavenly.

Believe me when I say they have some of the best pizzas in Toronto, and you can’t go wrong with the Stinging Bee or BBQ Chicken pizzas.

The Stinging Bee is quite unique and super delicious.

The Prawn & Pesto Pizza.

The Prawn & Pesto Pizza is also really good if you’re a big shrimp lover.

We also really love their appetizers, and they switch up the menu every so often!

Crispy Sushi and Chicken Tacos.

King Taps is located at First Canadian Place (with its own outdoor entrance on King Street), so it’s super easy to get to whether you work in the area or just want to have a taste of the awesome food and drinks.

They also now have a location out on the west coast if you find yourself in Kelowna!

LOCATION: 100 King St W, Toronto, ON


Assembly Chef's Hall in Toronto

Tachi

Got a craving for some delicious sushi in Toronto?

Tachi is a casual stand-up sushi bar inside Assembly Chef’s Hall, run by the same restaurant group behind Sushi Masaki Saito (Canada’s only restaurant to have two Michelin Stars!)

Their dine-in omakase menu is $69.75 per person, and you get 11 pieces of sushi and 1 handroll in literally 30 minutes.

Their omakase menu changes up by the season, and features things like O-Toro (fatty tuna) and Ikura (salmon roe).

They only have 8 standing spots, which is typical for stand-up sushi shops in Japan!

LOCATION: 111 Richmond St W, Toronto, ON


Momofuku Noodle Bar, Toronto

Momofuku Noodle Bar

Momofuku is a sister restaurant to the NYC-based restaurant of the same name by David Chang (who hosts an awesome podcast and has shows on Netflix).

They serve up delicious ramen, noodles, and steamed buns alongside an extensive drink menu with craft cocktails and craft beer!

They serve up some interesting steamed buns (also known as bao), like their Shiitake Bun and Eggplant Katsu Bun.

Don’t forget to have some of Momofuku’s famous and unique Cereal Milk soft serve for dessert afterwards, or even grab baked goods upstairs at Milk Bar to take home!

You can find them right in the Financial District by Queen & University.

LOCATION: 190 University Ave, Toronto, ON


Kōjin

Kōjin is located just upstairs from Momofuku on the third floor, and it’s the more ~fancy~ spot.

It’s an exclusively Toronto spot, and they highlight Ontario meat and produce on their menu!

All of their dishes are cooked over a charcoal flame, and shareables are the thing here.

Go for their Fried Brussels Sprouts with fish sauce vinaigrette or their Yuk Hwe (Korean steak tartare)!

LOCATION: 190 University Ave, Toronto, ON


Sud Forno, Toronto

Sud Forno

Enjoy lattes and baked bites at this cute little café, which is part of the Terroni restaurant group!

Both the interior and exterior of the café are super Instagrammable, and they’ve got delicious Italian eats available as well.

Freshly-baked pizzas? Cannolis? Yes please.

This Sud Forno location is more of a café and restaurant, and they’ve also got a bakery location on Queen Street!

LOCATION: 132 Yonge St, Toronto, ON


NEO-NY Genoa Salami from Pizzeria Libretto in Toronto

Pizzeria Libretto

You’ll find wood-fired Neapolitan-style pizzas at this local Toronto-based pizza restaurant.

You can’t go wrong with their classic Margherita pizza!

Feel free to order multiple pizzas and share with whoever you’re with.

Their chilli oil is also *chef’s kiss*.

LOCATION: 155 University Ave, Toronto, ON


Terroni

I’ve never been much of an Italian food person, but Terroni makes some pretty darn great pasta.

If you’re a seafood lover, order their Spaghetti in Canna a Mare – it’s v delicious.

Terroni has been around for 30 years now, and they’ve got a bunch of restaurants and other concepts across Toronto!

LOCATION: 57 Adelaide St E, Toronto, ON


Cactus Club Cafe in Vancouver, British Columbia

Cactus Club Cafe

Cactus Club may be a chain restaurant, but the food is actually very delicious.

I absolutely adore their Butternut Squash Ravioli with Prawns, and they’ve got some pretty great cocktails as well.

You also can’t go wrong with their Truffle Fries as an appetizer.

They’re originally based out of Vancouver, so you’ll find a lot of their restaurants across British Columbia!

Their only Toronto locations are at First Canadian Place in the Financial District and at Sherway Gardens in Etobicoke.

LOCATION: 77 Adelaide St W, Toronto, ON


Leña Restaurant in Toronto

Leña

Leña is a gorgeous and very Instagram-worthy Argentinean restaurant that serves up South American-inspired dishes.

It’s located right at the corner of Yonge & Richmond in the Financial District!

If you watch MasterChef Canada on Crave TV, you might recognize Leña from the restaurant takeover episode in season 6!

LOCATION: 176 Yonge St, Toronto, ON


The Chase Fish and Oyster Restaurant in Toronto

The Chase Fish and Oyster

This chic fine-dining spot on Temperance serves up seafood-focused small plates and craft cocktails, and everything is absolutely delicious.

They’ve also got seafood platters, which are perfect for sharing!

The bright interior of their rooftop restaurant is stunning, and they’ve even got a beautiful outdoor patio that offers up gorgeous views of the city during the warmer months.

It’s definitely a romantic spot if you’re looking to impress someone!

LOCATION: 10 Temperance St Fl 5, Toronto, ON


Canoe Restaurant, Toronto

Canoe Restaurant

While I personally don’t think Canoe is worth the price, it’s definitely worth visiting for the view if you’re looking for a romantic restaurant in the Financial District.

The atmosphere is really nice, and the panoramic skyline views from the 54th floor are fantastic!

Definitely make a reservation ahead of time and ask for a window seat table with CN Tower views so you can get all the good photos for the ‘Gram.

Canoe Restaurant, Toronto

I’d definitely recommend visiting during Summerlicious or Winterlicious for the more affordable tasting menus!

If you’re interested in seeing more, I’ve also got a detailed review all about Canoe.

LOCATION: 66 Wellington St W 54th floor, Toronto, ON


Richmond Station

This iconic fine dining restaurant in the Financial District serves up amazing Canadian-inspired dishes.

They offer a $120 tasting menu that changes up bi-weekly, and it features dishes made using local and seasonal ingredients!

Beverage pairings are also available for an additional $75 per person.

They can also accommodate vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free dietary restrictions with their Chef’s Menu.

One of the most interesting things about Richmond Station is that all their menu prices include cost of service, so tipping is discouraged!

LOCATION: 1 Richmond St W, Toronto, ON
