This was my 2nd visit to Penelope on King. It has a New York atmosphere, in that, you feel you are eating in a modern office building lobby. Yet, it is very popular and we were lucky to get seated without a reservation. Oddly, the wait staff are mostly middle-aged, authentically Greek people who trot more than they walk --... More

Visited Penelope for dinner, before a Mirvish Show. The roast lamb was quite tender, good flavour - came with rice and vegetables. My daughter had the stuff grape vine leaves. Service was good and we finished eating in time to head over to the theatre without rushing. The prices are reasonable.

Seven of us met for dinner prior to heading to The Royal Alex. Two of us arrived early and were immediately greeted and shown to our table. Our waitress was very attentive while we waited for the remainder of our friends. We were asked if we were going to the theatre and each placed our meal order. Everyone was very... More

I go to Penelope about 4 times a year before Theatre shows. It is always good, and there are many options on the menu that it would be hard not to find something. They validate parking in Metro Hall which is a fabulous perk. Servers have been there forever, and it feels like a family restaurant although it has been... More

We had an early dinner at this restaurant after being to a matinee across the street. What a great choice! The place is clean, a little bright (but maybe the lights dim after 7) and the service was excellent, as was the food. Authentic Greek, good wine selection, and good prices. I am VERY picky due to allergies and this... More

The decor is classy. The food presentation is beautiful. The drinks are good. This was great for the 3 of us to talk intimately and not have to yell. The parking validation was fabulous. The food is delicous. Great place for after work crowd. Location is good.

Can't beat the location of this restaurant. Right across the street from the Princess of Wales Theatre, was perfect for an early dinner after a Saturday afternoon show. The food was excellent. My favourite would have to be the grilled calamari appetizer. Best I've ever had.

7:00 on a Friday night in downtown Toronto and the food was HORRIBLE...burnt, bland and disappointing. We were rushed to order, rushed to eat and hustled out the door by 9:00pm as staff rushed home past us. The staff were wonderful but everything else was wrong.

A group of us went to Penelope's before going to a show across the street. The service was amazing, the staff was friendly and the food was delicious.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
