This restaurant was busy but no line up. The hostess was very welcoming and was able to find us a table for four fairly quickly as most tables are reserved ahead of time. Our server was great. She often checked in on us to see if we were ok. She was very pleasant. I wish I had remembered her name!!... More

My husband and I were looking for a nice place to celebrate our 31st anniversary. We had gone past Five Doors many times but had not tried it previously. It was a great experience with inventive food that combined different flavours. I enjoyed the pumpkin seed encrusted salmon and my husband enjoyed the skirt steak. I loved the brussels sprouts...

Always passed by this restaurant with the 5 doors and wondered how the food will be. I finally got to try it and was very pleasantly surprised! There is a patio and just far back enough from Yonge Street that you're not inhaling car fumes. Food was delish - I highly recommend the quail which is an appetizer portion, but... More

Our son (7 yo) had seen a tv show on this restaurant and wanted to go there. I explained this to the restaurant when we made the reservations and we were treated like VIPs while he was invited to a tour of the kitchen, met with the owner and even got to serve us! He was definitely not their typical... More

Had a wonderful dinner at Five Doors North. We had never been there before so it was a nice surprise. Had the beet salad and the crusted salmon. Excellent! We will definitely return. Our server, Daniel was very helpful and made some excellent suggestions. This place is well worth the visit.

My wife and I always enjoy coming here, and the staff has always been very friendly each visit. Bacon wrapped brussel sprouts are always a treat! And the bacon-infused-vodka Caesar

The place has been there for a long time, and I have eaten there in the past. We wanted to visit it again, but it turned out to be a bad idea. We ordered the beet salad and the polenta to start, and both were good. However, the pumpkin seed crusted salmon was terrible. we were served by a waitress... More

Tonight is our 28th wedding anniversary and my husband wanted to surprise me and try a restaurant that neither of us had been to before. So he made a reservation at Five Doors North. Our reservation was at 7:30, and he dropped me off at the restaurant at that time and then went to park the car. I stood at... More

Five doors north is one of my favourite restaurants in midtown toronto. I tried some of dishes and I'm sure the best one is spicy seafood stew. Actually not really spicy but It is always good to take something delicious from sea tho. Also some steak made of ground beef served with creamy soup (I cant remember the name of..lol)... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
