Toronto’s best restaurant patios in 2023: OpenTable

Torontonians looking to hang out on the patio this Victoria Day long weekend can check out a new list of 25 outdoor dining spots named among the most popular in Canada for a source of inspiration.

This year, OpenTable looked at more than 1 million reviews from its verified diners from March 1, 2022 to February 28, 2023, comparing overall ratings, number of reviews and “user clout” to determine which restaurants a location Will receive top 100

Forty-nine restaurants in Ontario cracked the list, making it the province with the most beloved patio spots. British Columbia follows close behind with 21 restaurants, then Quebec with nine.

Two spots in Toronto return to the outdoor dining list from 2022: Ellen’s on Danforth Avenue, for its “chic” terrace, and Oreta Midtown with its “pretty-in-pink” patio.

As for which dishes diners choose when dining al fresco, OpenTable points to Italian food being the number one fan favorite.
