Corner House

501 Davenport Rd. - Toronto, Canada
Don't let the exterior to this house-converted restaurant fool you - this is one restaurant that can impress even seasoned food vets with its cozy, romantic fireplace-inflamed ambience and impressive fare. This tucked-away piece of heaven is an excellent date restaurant and affordable too. The restaurant is famous for its Oven-baked Boneless Cornish Hen (with spring vegetables, Yukon Gold potato gnocchi, natural pan jus, $21), which was tender throughout, bursting with flavour, and had a perfectly crisp skin on the outside. The Roasted Boneless Leg of Lamb with Rosemary and Honey Mustard (with French lentil-potato gratin and roasted garlic rosemary jus, $29) is worth keeping an eye out for as well, but be sure to leave some room for dessert, particularly its sultry Tahitian Vanilla Crème Brûlée (with Anise shortbread, $9) or better yet, get the Dessert Platter for 2 ($10 per person).

Service is not as detailed or fast as some would like, but is more than made up with very friendly and welcoming personalities that do their best to make you feel relaxed and at home. Parking is a bit of a pain on the small street. Overall, a well-recommended restaurant, one you must visit at least once. There's a reason Toronto Life rated it as "Toronto's Most Romantic Restaurant".
