The views in Toronto are so legendary they’ve been featured in album titles. Well, Drake album titles. Okay ONE Drake album title. But still! That’s pretty cool! If you want to enjoy a delicious dinner while gazing at the legendary sights, we’ve found just the places for you. These are some of the best restaurants with stellar views in Toronto. Sit down and get ready to make your date feel uncomfortable with how much you’re looking out the window.
Here are 8 restaurants with the best views in Toronto.
This bright and breezy spot might not be the cheapest, but you could be sitting next to celebs up here. Inspired by the California coastline, the decor is almost as good as the view. We recommend sipping on a cold-pressed juice while you stare out the window and forget how cold it is out there. Pretty. But so so cold! Good thing they’re open all year long. Come back when the outside matches the inside and take a dip in their outdoor pool.
Where: Bisha Hotel, 44th Floor, 80 Blue Jays Way
This place is the ultimate location for perfect views of Toronto. Located on the top floor of the Manulife Centre, they overlook gorgeous city sights. Plus, their wraparound patio gives even better views once summer comes. Be sure to get there early though if you want a south-facing table for that classic CN Tower spotting. They don’t reserve specific tables and these ones fill up fast! Trust us, we’ve found ourselves waiting for them more times than we care to admit.
Where: Manulife Centre, 51st Floor, 55 Bloor St W
Catch beautiful views of the lake and the city skyline at this 5-star spot. Canoe specializes in contemporary Canadian cuisine, with dishes inspired by the landscape, history and culture of our true north strong and free! Plus, they work closely with farmers and suppliers so you know you’re getting the freshest ingredients in your dinner here. Doesn’t get much better than that, eh?
Where: TD Bank Tower, 54th Floor, 66 Wellington St
This place has pretty much all you could dream of when it comes to stellar sights of the city. Their 360 degree views make dining here more than memorable. AND they have a bar and an outdoor pool, so come back in the summertime for a skyline dip. Catch us flexing arm floaties on the ‘gram.
Where: 627 King St W
Located in the heart of the Entertainment District, Toula is the place to go for Italian bites paired with city sights. Plus, they have a wine selection to die for. So sip some chardonnay while you marvel at the gorgeous view! Could you bellyflop from up here or is that certain death?
Where: The Westin Harbour Castle, 38th Floor, 1 Harbour Sq
This view goes a little against the grain from the other spots on this list. Haha. Well, instead of the beautiful city skyline, this restaurant features more of a lakefront view. But we promise, it’s just as gorgeous. Located right on the harbourfront, head here for all the bar snacks and pints you could dream of. Plus, watch the sun set over the Toronto Islands. Told ya it was just as good as the city skyline.
Where: 25 Dockside Dr

Most of the incredible views so far have featured the CN Tower. But this one is from it! We can’t talk about restos with gorgeous Toronto views and NOT mention the 360 Restaurant.
