This was the second time I've been to La Maquette; both times for private functions where the restaurant was closed and our group had the place to ourselves. Last night it was for a stand up cocktail reception where a small jazz band played as servers walked around with delicious appetizers like duck confit canapes, asian fresh rolls, shrimp on... More

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2016

The environment is ok. But we were surprised that they would charge for additional bread. Since one basket for two people, it should be ok for four people to have another round. Further, the lobster dish contained a decent amount of lobsters, but it did not taste fresh. We would do a much better job at home for cooking our... More

this is still an amazing restaurant. The ambience, food and service cannot be beaten. We used to come here but for some reason have not done so recently. A big mistake that we will amend. as recent converts to vegetarian eating, it was fantastic to have a fine dining and not just some pasta in a salt sauce. The veggie... More

A long overdue review of our Summerlicious dinner at La Maquette. First, have to say that to have a dinner at this lovely restaurant with 3 courses for 45 bucks is pretty awesome. Second, to have two lobster tails as the main as a part of that is even more amazing. We had a delicious dinner at La Maquette, very... More

Loved the place! I've been to Summer- and Winterlicious quote a bit, some restos treat you like second hand customer, but not at La Maquette. Menu was very good, food - no complaints, atmosphere , music, service ... we had a great time. Planning on coming back for the regular dinner.

A Humble Elegance of a historically designated landmark overlooking the Toronto Sculpture Garden & St. James Cathedral. It is the perfect setting to enjoy a delicious meal for two or the elegant catering of a special event. Allow yourself to get caught up in the beautiful energy that is La Maquette.

Our French Dishes have a cooking time of 30 to 45 minutes. Pasta & Grilled dishes are quicker to serve.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
