There are tons of great spots to eat at in the Financial District, whether you’re in the mood for upscale fusion eats or drool-worthy pizza.
While a lot of the restaurants in the neighbourhood cater towards the 9-5 crowd, a lot of them are also great for everyday visiting!
Here are some of the best restaurants to eat in the Financial District in Toronto!
Best restaurants in the Toronto Financial District
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!
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 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!
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
Got a craving for some delicious sushi in Toronto?
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
They serve up some interesting steamed buns (also known as bao), like their Shiitake Bun and Eggplant Katsu Bun.
You can find them right in the Financial District by Queen & University.
LOCATION: 190 University Ave, Toronto, ON
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
Enjoy lattes and baked bites at this cute little café, which is part of the Terroni restaurant group!
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
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
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 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.
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 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
They’ve also got seafood platters, which are perfect for sharing!
It’s definitely a romantic spot if you’re looking to impress someone!
LOCATION: 10 Temperance St Fl 5, Toronto, ON
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.
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
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
