Yes it has many expensive boutiques, but it is one of the nice places in Toronto for a stroll any time of the day or evening. In February it hosts a great ice sculpture contest, while in the summer time (end of June) it has a wonderful free jazz festival that I encourage all music enthusiasts to check out. There are also many great cafes and restaurants for good food and for people watching!

My partner and I spent two days in this area. It was a very nice and quiet part of Toronto. There were a lot of luxury shops and many good restaurants and coffee shops. We strolled here in the morning after New Year Eve and it was simply wonderful. The private houses were beautifully decorated with Christmas decorations and we met a lot of people walking with their dogs. It must be a great place for living.

Came here to visit Sentaler's store located in the mall. Looks like its its either a new or refurbished shopping mall as they were still finishing bits and there were some shops not open yet (Or had they closed down?) The shops which were opened seemed all high end fashion with a café on the lower floor and a supermarket.

For more than the past 50 years, the Yorkville neighbourhood has been the leading trendy area of Toronto. Over the years, it has continued to get better and better. It has many fine restaurants, art galleries, little and medium-sized high-end, luxury retailers, and more. In front of one of the art galleries is a bronze sculpture titled “Che Fa?”. It is of a businessman in Yorkville. There is a small treed park where many people sit, chat, and enjoy their drinks and the outdoors. This is a very fashionable area and very hip. There is also a Yorkville Village shopping Mall located at 55 Avenue Road. I frequently dine in the neighbourhood. It has many fine restaurants.

Recently having done lots of restaurant reviews for Napa, i decided to check out my own city and was surprised Yorkville wasn't much much higher on the list, like top 10. If you love to shop and eat at great restaurants and check out interesting boutiques, this is the place for you. Take the subway to Bay Station, , or Museum (where the ROM is) or even to Yonge/Bloor where you can walk to Yorkville along Bloor (high end retail shopping like Robson in Vancouver.). Yorkville is characteristic because there are trees here and some character, unlike the rest of downtown (retail and business). Check out Caren's Wine and Cheese Bar, ice cream and chocolate shops, designer boutiques. Lots of restaurants and spas here also. Famous people come here! You too can live it up! The houses just behind this area make up a nice neighborhood to walk through (an escape within the city). If you are in Toronto on a weekend or stat holiday, get an all day subway/bus ride pass for $10 - on weekends, it's good for 2 adults plus 2 children! Best kept secret! There are also movie theatres there (manulife building on Bay and Bloor, and also a smaller artsier theatre within the yorkville area).

A previous reviewer described Yorkville as "Overpriced" and "Without Character" which is the best way to describe this place. I was looking forward to re-visiting Yorkville after a 10 year absence. The charming neighborhood I remembered consisting of small boutiques, sidewalk cafes and art galleries has given way to condos, office buildings, parking garages, did I say condos? more condos, hotels and overpriced clothing stores. All of the charm has been replaced with bricks and mortar. If this is progress leave me out. Yorkville has been transformed into a traffic congested mini Bloor St. Don't waste your time.

Too much street repair and construction on roads interrupted what might have been pleasant walking tour of this expensive neighborhood in late May 2015. Pan-handling people were there asking other people for donations. Men sleeping on the street in the late morning and early afternoon did not beautify the neighborhood or make the visit any safer. I found the street construction to be a major interruption of my walking tour of the neighborhood. I did not find it safe to walk where pedestrians were permitted to walk to cross the street so as to avoid running or walking in to repair machinery and tools. I also was disturbed and not surprised to find many store fronts with signs advertising or looking for new tenants Turnover is high or frequent here in large part because too many visitors are browsing and walking instead of buying merchandise or food. This expensive neighborhood is the high rent district and this is why prices are so high to scare prospective clients or customers away from staying too long. This was inevitable as the local economy can not support so many of these stores and restaurants that try to survive on high prices. People are walking through the neighborhood and not buying much of anything. Faithful clientele or not the expensive neighborhood can not survive with this ingredient working against it day after day. Street construction with debris and repair machinery as obstacles to walking doesn't help matters either. But it is the nature of the neighborhood that must owe up to the
problem. Grigorian records had some recent trouble with flooding and it lost some of its floor space and merchandise. But the prices there are too high to begin with to say the least. Other restaurants are catering to the affluent lunch, dinner and TGIF crowd with hopes of filling empty seats day after day to look good to the passers by. Some of the restaurants are too small to accommodate a large group of people at once. Too many clothing stores are selling so much of the same merchandise at high prices and some of them are closing or have closed. If you want to see what are not the quintessential elements of life visit these stores. These store sell luxury items. I do not like to walk in this neighborhood too often for it bothers me as much as the area around Queen and King Streets with high buildings with financial moguls waiting to pounce on you for investments. I did walk along Cumberland and adjacient streets and found these streets to be as unpleasant as the principal street of Yorkville. I do not belong to the affluent club of people and and I do not feel comfortable here because these shops and affluent people are not my kind of people or shops. If you must visit this shopping area to say that you have seen Toronto then there is a screw or two loose in the wood shed. If you need to visit this area to say that you enjoyed your trip to Toronto then there is a loose screw or two loose in the same good shed. I say this because there is so much of greater value to see in this wonderful city. Also those countries whose current image in the global view of their county is that of large scale poverty should not be represented among the expensive restaurants trying to attract dinner and lunch patrons. I found it difficult to accept the Indian restaurant in this place almost across from the Grigorian Records store. I am waiting for a Bangladeshi or Burmese restaurant to open here. Maybe a Yemeni restaurant will find a place to sell food. I can hardly wait for that to occur. Fans collecting around hotels with hopes to see celebrities shouldn't be the reason why you visit this neighborhood. People say that this neighborhood is upscale. My response is to put those words on a scale for measuring and determining worth. I am sure that the wealthiest come here to flaunt their wealth by staying in expensive hotels. Let them do that for that behavior is not going to bring the shoppers with modest means and money to the neighborhood for shopping. Browsing will continue in large scale. Picture taking of the celebrities should not be the reason you come to Toronto. If it is then there is a loose screw or two in the woodshed. Showing off your car and clothes in this neighborhood s not the best reason for coming to Toronto. I advise you to avoid coming here. If you are trying to keep a tight or modest budget and save money this is the wrong place to spend time and money. I found it interesting that so many of the restaurants were close to being nearly empty for customers when I approached them. Flaunting your wealth here should not be the principal reason for visiting Toronto. I would be interested in knowing what political persuasion dominates or characterizes or defines the people who visit this place. neighborhood. Yes this is one of the fanciest and wealthiest and expensive neighborhoods for me to visit in this city and for that reason it is not comfortable for me to stay here much more that five minutes. Upscale fashion designers might operate stores here but my budget and tastes for clothing is not in the same category. So many of my core values are miles away and far removed from this place. I do not like it.

Yorkville gave us a fantastic shopping experience with plenty of top shops from around the world. All staff in all stores has been very friendly and helpful. Inbetween there are lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from and plenty of interesting people to watch.

Yorkville is ok, but there are so many better places to see in Toronto. Yorkville has very high class shops, hotels and restaurants but for me, there is nothing charming about Yorkville. Usually it is filled with wealthy and often pretentious people who don't provide any vibrancy to the city. You can try to catch some celebrities there during TIFF if you're into that kind of thing, but in my opinion, there are way better places to hang out. In all honesty, there are several fantastic restaurants in Yorkville, just be prepared to pay the high prices.
