Picking the right venue for your corporate private dining occasion in Toronto sets the tone for your entire event. Fortunately for you, there’s lots to choose from in this buzzy Canadian metropolis. Major corporations and small businesses find themselves in Toronto year-round for conferences, conventions, meetings, or off-sites. Toronto is on the cutting edge of what’s new and exciting in several industries, and there’s a thrilling culinary scene to match. Finding a place to host all your cohorts for a pre-meeting brunch, working lunch, or celebratory dinner can be easy if you know where to look.

The Vendry has curated a list of some of Toronto’s finest private dining rooms (PDRs for short) for the next time you are hosting an internal team, client, or corporate dinner here in town. From breweries to sophisticated eateries, take a look at all Toronto has to offer.

The Best Private Dining Rooms in Toronto

1. Le Sélect Bistro

Neighborhood: Waterfront Communities
Private Dining Capacity: 80 standing, 70 seated

If you are looking to take your team to Paris without airfare, then Le Sélect Bistro is your place. Deep downtown, this French restaurant serves up authentic cuisine with a touch of sophistication, accessing the vibe your associates are looking for. Take a ten-minute walk from Rogers Centre – a popular spot for trade shows when the Toronto Blue Jays aren’t in season – to the private dining room of Le Sélect, and invite your team to slide into its deep banquets and enjoy its unparalleled service. And if your guests are driving, this French hotspot offers a rarity in downtown Toronto: complimentary parking.

2. Vela

Neighborhood: Waterfront Communities
Private Dining Capacity: 16

Also near the commerce of Rogers Centre is Vela, an impressive space to bring clients or customers while in Toronto. Vela creates a private dining experience for your group that is as beautiful as it is functional. There’s a presentation-ready large-screen TV, so rest easy if your event has to double as a meeting. An award-winning light sculpture by Gweilo floats above the table that design aficionados in your crowd will appreciate. The inventive and varied food and bar menu designed by Amanda Bradley and Robin Goodfellow will delight your guests.

3.  Oretta

Neighborhood: Waterfront Communities
Private Dining Capacity: 90 standing, 65 seated

The King West area is home to the modern-day culinary superstar, Oretta, a quintessential spot to host a business crowd with loads of private dining options. Choose the Mezzanine for your business cohorts, which is up on the upper level of this modern restaurant. Divide the room in two by way of gorgeous oak sliding doors, making room for 65 guests seated, or 90 for a cocktail event. When traveling for business, everyone loves dinner and a show, so invite your associates to Oretta’s L’Attico – their event space with a fully functioning kitchen – as a chef presents your meal on a large marble island. The Soggiorno is yet another PDR offered by this accommodating restaurant, which features a balcony that overlooks the main dining room and can seat 36. Lastly, when it comes to secluded business dining, Oretta delivers The Cambusa, which is a café by day and a private room by night. This space includes the patio and can accommodate 40 people reception-style or 26 seated at one, long harvest table, and features a personal bar and private chef if requested.


Neighborhood: Waterfront Communities

MARKED brings a cultured take on its fresh cuisine, evoking the spirit of the 1963 Pan-Am Games in São Paulo. This is a large-scale event space created entirely for hosting events, so prepare yourself for some tremendous choices. The Pan-Am Lounge is perfect for product launches, cocktail receptions, and presentations, with the ability to fit 17 standing or 40 seated guests. Hook up that space to the Pan-Am Patio, featuring open-air windows and access to the bar in The Pan-Am Lounge. Plan your event in the Tucano, which offers two long tables of 9 and dining room furniture, making it perfect for seated dinners or presentations. Finally, Corsair fits 75 guests reception-style, and 35 seated. With Corsair’s completely private bar space, this is a spot to get down to business.

5. GEORGE Restaurant

Private Dining Capacity: 120 standing, 64 seated

The private dining at GEORGE Restaurant on Queen Street East is so exquisite that The Wall Street Journal decided to hold its Executive Dinner at this gorgeous locale.

Just like the cuisine at Día, this space is clean, modern, and topnotch to those in the know.

8. Rodney’s Oyster House

Neighborhood: Waterfront Communities
Private Dining Capacity: 30 standing, 24 seated

Delivering fresh seafood since 1987, Rodney’s Oyster House offers up two options for your corporate event while in Toronto. The possibilities to mix and match spaces here are plentiful, but for completely secluded dining, select The Cuddy Room. Double doors can make this room removed from the main restaurant. Allow your associates to spread out on the large reclaimed wood table, as your team presents on the wall-mounted monitor. The food is as good as it comes at this Toronto mainstay, and your guests will appreciate the casual atmosphere.

9. Modus Ristorante

Neighborhood: Bay Street Corridor
Private Dining Capacity:  80 standing, 50 seated

If your team wants a spot that is as modern and forward-thinking as your organization, then consider booking one of the two private dining options at Modus Ristorante, an Italian restaurant within the Bay Street Corridor. Accessible by Toronto’s PATH, Modus is where professionals come to dine. The Small Private Dining Room is available for lunch or dinner and can seat 25 comfortably. Then accommodating 50 guests seated or 80 for a cocktail-style reception is the Large Private Dining Room. Should a presentation or product training be on your event to-do list, you’ve come to the right place. Both private rooms have access to four televisions, wireless microphones, presentation remotes, a projector, and screen, as well as a full sound system. All boxes? Checked!

Hosting a Corporate Event in Toronto

Opting to host your Sales Kickoff Meeting, off-site event, conference, convention, or team-building event in Toronto is a great choice. Your special occasion calls for a remarkable place that can handle all your needs. Here are a few things to think about when hosting an event in Toronto, especially in a private dining space.

Crowd size – Private dining in Toronto can be a charming affair. Make sure to match the size of your group with the right kind of room. The location of your private dining event sets the tone, so make certain the space matches your vibe and size.  

Accessibility – The PATH is an interconnected tunnel underneath the city of Toronto, and is safe and super accessible. There are also subways and buses, as well as a much-used streetcar line. And Toronto is an incredibly walkable city. With all this ease of access, make sure that the private dining spot you choose allows your guests to easily get in and out.

The elements – When it's warm in Toronto, it's simply gorgeous. But be sure to plan for all types of weather when you are in this fair city. And if you make use of a patio or terrace, be sure to ask about heat lamps or coverings.

Cuisine – Try to get the pulse of your group as far as their food preferences. Are they adventurous eaters? Or would they opt for more safe options? The good news is you have an array of venues that are prepared for every palate and dietary need.
