We had an early dinner at this restaurant after being to a matinee across the street. What a great choice! The place is clean, a little bright (but maybe the lights dim after 7) and the service was excellent, as was the food. Authentic Greek, good wine selection, and good prices. I am VERY picky due to allergies and this... More

The decor is classy. The food presentation is beautiful. The drinks are good. This was great for the 3 of us to talk intimately and not have to yell. The parking validation was fabulous. The food is delicous. Great place for after work crowd. Location is good.

Can't beat the location of this restaurant. Right across the street from the Princess of Wales Theatre, was perfect for an early dinner after a Saturday afternoon show. The food was excellent. My favourite would have to be the grilled calamari appetizer. Best I've ever had.

7:00 on a Friday night in downtown Toronto and the food was HORRIBLE...burnt, bland and disappointing. We were rushed to order, rushed to eat and hustled out the door by 9:00pm as staff rushed home past us. The staff were wonderful but everything else was wrong.

A group of us went to Penelope's before going to a show across the street. The service was amazing, the staff was friendly and the food was delicious.

Waiters dressed in black and white. the restaurant is bright and huge with linen table cloths. Excellent old school service. I was with a group of 20 and the waiters got every order correct. Great selection, attention to detail, good food. The portions are generous . I had one of the daily specials, grilled salmon on a Cesar salad. I... More

Good, classic Greek food with charming servers. Food is good but your average Greek food - nothing extraordinary or extra special. Great, large location right on King.

This Greek restaurant offers a Lamb shank that is to die for! The portion was very generous, tender and tasted great. My wife had filet mignon on a skewer, that was also delicious! Pricing reasonable.Parking under the building and they validate your parking ticket.

Bright,large restaurant with linen table cloths! Old school service, real waters that get your order correct. Good selection, attention to detail, good food. If you are thinking dinner before the theatre, these folks are superb at prompt,service. The portions are huge. Be sure to check out the daily specials, they were excellent!

Hi, we had family visiting and tried to find a central location as well as easy access to the Royal Alex. I originally made a reservation for 14 but 20 people ended up coming. The restaurant was more than willing to accommodate our changes. We had a lovely dinner and great celebration. The food was fabulous - no complaints. I... 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.
