Victor Restaurant at Hotel Le Germain in Toronto

Tucked away on Toronto’s Mercer Street, just south of trendy King Street West, Le Germain Hotel Toronto recently unveiled an extensive top to bottom makeover at Victor Restaurant. Remodelled by the award winning DesignAgency, Victor’s fresh interior offers a contemporary interpretation of the classic meets comfortable American-style brasserie.

The newly expanded Victor seats 60, featuring a sun-soaked open air space with a glass-walled dining room that soars two-storeys high. First time visitors can’t help but jaw-drop at the restaurants eye-catching 700 sq ft twisted gold metal light fixture which romantically dangles above Italian leather wrapped banquettes. Throughout the dining room historic homages are displayed via antique-bronze accents, frosted amber mirrors, whimsical concrete tiling and soft Salisbury-green table tops.

The reimagined restaurant is also home to two new distinct spaces: Victor Cafe and Victor Bar. Those on their morning rush to work will fall head over heels for the white wood paneling and pastel colours which decorate the cafe. The bustling eatery serves classic hot beverages alongside house-made pastry treats such as lemon tart, dark chocolate cake and flaky croissants which are prepared by the hotel’s award winning pastry chef Martin Gouthro.

Craft cocktail fans will find happiness at the hotel’s new lobby bar which offers a sophisticated and intimate vibe. Cozy up at Victor Bar and you’ll find a curated wine list and lovely libations which offer a playful spin on your favourite shaken and muddled classics.

If you’re visiting for a fine feast plop yourself down in the dining room and nibble through Chef Lanny MacLeod’s new menu featuring a festive seafood tower, decadent 36-oz Tomahawk steak, and a series of fresh salads and inspiring small plates.

  1. I was fortunate enough to visit the newly renovated Victor recently. The atmosphere was ambient and relaxing. The food was delicious and wonderfully presented. Kudos to the chef! It was the best steak that I have ever eaten. It was succulent, juicy and done to perfection. The desserts complimented the meal, very tasty and was a perfect finish to an amazing experience.

  2. The dining experience at the Victor was awesome. The ambience was welcoming, modern and yet had a touch of the timeless. The meal was superb. We started our food journey with some mouth-watering seafood dishes. YUMMY! For our main course we had the Tomahawk steak with mushrooms and various other vegetables. It was without a doubt the most delectable and scrumptious meat that I have ever eaten. The delicious blueberry cheesecake and delightful coconut cream tart were the perfect ending for a great dining experience. I am recommending the Victor to all of my friends and it is now my favourite place to eat.
    Congrats to the chefs! You have a winner!!
