My boyfriend and I are looking for an inexpensive yet fun and lively restaurant where we can have dinner on Valentine's Day in Toronto. We're looking for a place that has good service and where you be treated to an experience. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

7 Numbers is my recommendation for something that is fun, a great experience and not overly pricey. The food is delicious (home cooked by Mama Rosa and her family), and it's such a fun environment. You can get a sense of the personality of the restaurant here. It's ideal for sharing, so order multiple dishes and feed each other forkfuls over candle light. Menu highlights include Rosa's Panfried Calamari, Sexy Duck Leg, Tortiglioni with rapini and cherry tomatoes (my favourite), and finish off with Tony's Very Small But Tasty Cannolis or the Flourless Chocolate Cake.
It's all amazing and you are guaranteed to have a fun time. They have locations on the Danforth and Eglinton.
Let us know where you decide to go!

I'd recommend Markaz in the Entertainment District. It's a new restaurant/cafe that is truly one of kind in Toronto. It's owned by a very friendly young man and the service is really amazing. I've been once before and he really made us feel at home. It's mainly Indian types of food (shawarma, hummus etc.) and they have sisha's (non-tobacco).
They have a Valentine's special for $55 for two people that includes 2 appetizers, 2 dinners, 1 dessert to share, 2 drinks, 1 sisha and small present. It's a great value! Just so you know - it's an alcohol free environment.

I tweeted this for you and we got another suggestion:
From @Aaron_Michiels : Osteria Ciceri e Tria on Victoria St. Fab italian & the menu changes all the time. My current top date-night place.

@holisticvanity says: I suggest either going for Ethiopian (something sensual about eating w your hands) or ordering in and getting out some candles.
|HolisticVanity's suggestion it is! on Feb 10, 2010 @ 10:53 am|
It looks like we'll be ordering in and eating by candlelight! Thanks for the suggestions everyone! Now we'll just have to decide where to order from...
|Valentine's Day Dinner in a Box for Valentine's Day 2011 on Jan 25, 2011 @ 06:58 pm|
A Toronto catering company (AugustNinth.ca), is doing a Valentine's Day Dinner in a Box for 2011.
It comes with appetizers, salads, entrees and dessert as well as instructions on how to make the food look like it does at a restaurant.
It's a cool idea if you don't want to deal with the rush through eating, the hassle of making reservations and putting up with some guy coughing up whoknowswhat at the next table!
You have it delivered to your house and you heat it up and serve it.
Best part is that you can even say that you made it since it doesn't have any branding.
They have all the info on their website at www.Augustninth.ca

These suggestions are great. My mom and I have made it a tradition to celebrate Valentine's Day together with a fancy dessert. I think we'll check out one of these recommendations :)
|love that! on Jan 27, 2011 @ 04:11 pm|

Mike and I have all year to celebrate being a couple so why not celebrate the (obviously girl invented) holiday with someone else who loves pink, hearts, frills and bows?
