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.

The Senator consists of two distinct historic rooms. The original 1940’s Main Floor and the Top o’ the Senator, that dates back to the 1860’s, on the second floor. Both rooms are fully licensed.


Are all first-come, first-served - which is never that long a wait.

Our Seating Policy

The Senator can be very busy - especially on weekends. We have 19 booths on our Main Floor and to provide the best service for all of our guests - most of whom want to get in and out quickly for breakfast, lunch and brunch - we do not allow tables to be held and will only seat guests when their entire party has arrived. This allows us to serve and cook for our guests who are here rather than making us all wait for those who are en route. When we are busy turning tables and you are in-line waiting for your party to arrive, we understand that it can be upsetting to have other guests seated ahead of you but be assured that you will be seated at the first available table when your entire party arrives.

Thank you for understanding.

Dinner/Show Cover Charges

We work tirelessly to procure the finest ingredients for our meals, to curate privately imported wines and source distinctive talent. Thank you for supporting our Canadian artists.
