11 of Our Favourite Private and Semi Private Dining Experiences for the Holidays

With the holiday season in full swing, we run down 11 of our favourite private and semi-private dining options, ranging from luxe and lavish to small and intimate. Reserve your parties at these amazing restaurants…


Trinity Taverna
With an upstairs dining lounge that screams good taste, Trinity Taverna is perfect for groups large or small. The food is sublime, the decor otherworldly, and they can even help you go from dinner to dancing.

Gusto 101
The downstairs private space is great for smaller, more intimate dinners. Naturally, we love the food at Gusto 101. The industrial meets car shop decor is just pretty icing on the proverbial cake.

Estiatorio Volos
The back dining section can accommodate larger groups for an inherently amazing dining experience. They’ll even accentuate a fixed course menu for your convenience and budget. 

Terroni Adelaide
With various rooms for groups ranging from 10 to 80 people, Terroni Adelaide is an awesome venue for any style of party at almost any price.

Whether for 10 or 30 guests, the newly renovated private dining space at Lee Restaurant is an ideal locale for that special event. We wouldn’t necessarily schedule a party here if the amazingness of the food would be lost on immature palates. Just saying…

The Drake Hotel
Room 222 at The Drake has always been a favourite of ours. An intimate space with some cool decor queues, dine on The Drake’s whimsical fare parallel to the Sky Yard. 

REDS Wine Tavern
With two private rooms to suit intimate dinners, and the option of wine pairings and custom menus, REDS Wine Tavern is a Financial District gem for private dining.

Refined Canadiana is an experience to behold in Boehmer’s rustically sophisticated private dining space. Ossington has never been so a la mode! 


The mezzanine level private “room” is anything but; it offers a beautiful view of the bustling restaurant below and a new perspective on the fantistic sewn mural adorning the north wall. 

Hudson Kitchen
The back room Chef’s Table offers an intimately interactive experience wherein you’ll get to watch (and converse, if you so choose) with the cooks in the kitchen. (PS. They do also have a separate private room… but where’s the fun in that?) 

Skin + Bones
Another harvest table experience, Skin + Bones’ communal seating accommodates up to 20 with a proper perspective of the open kitchen action.
