40 Romantic Toronto Restaurants To Bring Your Valentine's Day Date

The winter season is filled with super romantic holidays. First there's Christmas with all the twinkling lights, presents to show how much you care about the other person and kissing under the mistletoe. Then comes New Year's Eve where you get the chance to ring in the new year with that special someone by your side.

Finally, we reach Valentine's Day in February. That special day of the year where everyone that's lucky enough to be in love gets to celebrate it! The classic ways of doing this are sending that special someone a box of chocolates, a bouquet of red roses or sharing a meal with them at a romantic restaurant. Maybe even all three if you want to go all out!

Luckily, Toronto is full of incredibly romantic restaurants so it won't be hard to choose one that is sure to impress your S/O. It may seem early, but these restaurants are going to book up fast!
