What’s your pick for Ontario’s best restaurant? Let’s hear from you!

August 11, 2022

If you’ve been slow to return to dining out regularly after the peaks of the COVID-19 pandemic, you’ll find a lot has changed in Ontario’s dining scene, but there’s no shortage of places with exceptional wine lists, delicious food and next level hospitality.

In an effort to list some of the most memorable food and wine experiences, VineRoutes is starting with Ontario – with the intent on eventually expanding the list to include a more nationally diverse selection. As our panel of editorial staff and administrators complete their process of short-listing personal favourites, we want to reach out to you, our readers, and get your feedback on where we should take a second – or perhaps even a first – look.

Whether you live in Ontario or are a frequent visitor to Canada’s most populated province, we want to know: what restaurant serves up an extraordinary food and wine experience? We say both food and wine because we’re looking for those places that take just as much pride and consideration in their wine list as they do their menu.

After all, good wine has never been so important an element in fine dining as it is today. Restaurateurs know that wine lovers are their best customers, and wine lists continue to improve.

Both 2020 and 2021 presented, not just Ontario’s restaurants, but the restaurant world as a whole, with its most urgent challenge and brought to a head many long-simmering issues. So, this year we want to celebrate restaurants that not only survived but have done so with integrity.

In the meantime, and with our inaugural list set to be revealed October 25th, do you have a favourite you’d like to see on this list? Send your recommendations to We want to hear from you!
