The Senator consists of two very distinct historic rooms - the original 1940’s DINER on the main floor and the WINEBAR, an intimate Parisian style cafe that dates back to the 1860’s on the second. Both rooms are fully licensed. Both rooms are fully licensed.
Breakfast, Lunch and Brunch is first come first served - which is never that long a wait.
We take full Dinner reservations in both the Diner and Winebar. As the Winebar only seats 24, we ask that you please confirm your reservation on the day you are dining. Please also inform us if you will be arriving more than 10 minutes later than your reservation time, otherwise your reservation will be cancelled.
We are an old-fashioned restaurant and take reservations the old-fashioned way - in person or by phone. Please call 416 364 7517 or leave us a message. We have voicemail but we do not accept reservations by email and we do not work with any on-line services.
You will see our original neon sign hanging at 249 Victoria St. We are just south of Dundas, around the corner from the Eaton Centre, and directly across the street from the Ed Mirvish Theatre and a just a few steps to Massey Hall and the Elgin/Wintergarden Theatres.
