Were surprised we were able to get a seat right away. Lots of choices on the menu and good recommendations from the waiter. I had a burger which was delicious as was the wedge salad. Enjoyable meal for sure.

Fred's Not Here is two restaurants combined (the other on is the Red Tomato). We were never offered the option of the Red Tomatoes menu which was a shame because I found the menu choices of FNH limiting and rather expensive. The server was very good, asking if we had somewhere to be so he would know if we were... More

Nice options for pre-dinner drinks. Enjoyed the specials for the evening and the server gave great recommendations. Service was really good with them keeping an eye on our timing so we remained on time for our show. Prices reasonable and food quality pretty good.

Had a before theatre meal here as it is a 2 minute walk to our theatre. Waiter (Andrew ) asked if we had time restraints and made sure everything came out in a timely fashion. Food was great, drinks were a good size and Andrew assured us that he was watching the clock and we had plenty of time. They... More

Arrived on King Street about 6 p.m. on a Wednesday evening without reservations. The first 3 restaurants where we tried to get a table were booked solid so thought we were settling at Fred's Not Here. We were pleasantly surprised and delighted to get a first rate dinner from start to finish including good service and a nice selection of... More

My business partner was looking for a steak. And a good one. We walked into the restaurant without any expectations. Andrew, the waiter greeted and treated us like kings. He was perfect providing us the the right advice and his knowledge about the local area is astonishing. He smiled (and his mine was genuine, something that's hard to find these... More

Seemed like the reviews were good on trip advisor so I gave this place a shot. I ordered the fillet mignon (medium rare). When I got my meal the steak was raw (cold and completely uncooked centre). I figured this can happen occasionally so I sent it back asking for medium rare once again. As you can see by the... More

This is a nice place to eat before a show. The food was very good and the dessert (I had the cheesecake) was excellent. The service was also great and our waiter was very attentive.

We went for Pizza Friday dinner before heading to Rogers Centre to watch baseball. This restaurant isn't a pizza joint but a billboard outside said they serve pizza in the basement section. When we saw one of the 10 or so different pizzas was called "Peking Duck"(!), we decided to go with a basic pizza (tomato sauce, cheese), and requested... More

We had the Mirvish theatre and dinner package and decided to try Fred's not here. The options for the 3 course meal was great lots of variety. The interior is small but cozy and romantic. Friendly staff and great service. We had the ceaser salad and it was fantastic homemade dressing lots of garlic! The California steak was great, slightly... More

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.
