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 but offer entirely different menus under the supervision of Executive Chef Paul Laforet - see Menu pages. We take full Dinner reservations in both the Diner and Winebar; however, it is first come first serve - which is never that long a wait - for Breakfast, Lunch and Brunch. The Winebar only seats 24 so please confirm your reservation on the day you are dining and inform us if you are arriving later than 10 minutes otherwise it 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 voice mail but do not accept reservations by email and do not work with any on-line services.
You will see our original neon sign hanging at 249 Victoria St. just south of Dundas, around the corner from the Eaton Centre, directly across the street from the Ed Mirvish Theatre and a just a few steps to Massey Hall and the Elgin/Wintergarden Theatres.

We are delighted to accommodate groups of any size from 10 -100 who are looking for a special place for a special event at anytime. You can book either the Diner or Winebar or both and our Chefs and planners will work with you to create memorable menus and events. Please contact us at 416 364 7517.
