I used to frequent La Fenice but haven't been for a couple of years. It has a nice ambience and layout. The service was attentive and professional. They still come out with a platter of the various meats and another with the sea food that is available. The food is good and portions are a good size. Still a good... More

We looked at a dozen restaurants along King Street before deciding on Le Fenice and it was the right decision. The courtesy begins with a warm welcome and extends through the meal with a perfect combination of friendly yet restrained service. Glasses are filled, dishes removed at the proper time, and dishes are presented with proper timing. Even the linen... More

Staff very friendly, Atmosphere ok although it was early and seemed as though this was a favourite for people having a relatively quick dinner before the theatre. Found the decoration a bit odd. Food quality was ok and no complaints, just not sure we will be rushing back.

We stumbled about this place as we stayed at the Hyatt across the street. Completely unexpected but very charming. This is old school service, very personable and helpful. We ordered the mushroom fettuccine and the pork belly nightly special. The fettuccini was absolutely lovely, and pasta with 3 ingredients is very bold! The pork belly was ok, had better. The...

Eaten here before and had no complaints and maybe the pressure of a TIff crowd lead to what I thought was a quality slip . Maybe just my choice of seafood risotto as the rice was undercooked and the seafood seemed chewy . Could of been just my dish as no major complaints from other guests .

My wife and I enjoyed a pleasant meal in the theater district last week. This is a small restaurant with a nice outside patio that fronts on King St W. The staff was pleasant, helpful and well informed. The mussels and the bouillabaisse were very good and we look forward to our next opportunity to eat at La Fenice.

Our waitress was took our order and brought the wrong dishes. My daughter asked for salmon and she was served something that looked like salmon. We later learned that the dish she was served was not salmon and costed twice as much! Unfortunately, we already paid and there was no going back. Insult to injury, the expensive fish dish tasted...

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
