An okay area to be honest. A little over hyped and soulless but well worth a visit. Lots of restaurants and decent shops to visit.

Used to be overrated but good place for high end food/shopping and people watching. Bit of an unofficial luxury car show at times to make it interesting. If you like to spend big bucks you will find it here and selection rivals Rodeo Dr. in LA. Good spot for Celeb watching if that's your sport.

Once the area where most of Toronto's 4 star restaurants and hotels were located. Shopping was of the kind -"if you have to ask how much it is, you can't afford it". Neighborhood has toned down over the years as other high profile districts have challenged Yorkville. They still give you a peek into how the upper crust lives -... More

Too much street repair and construction on roads interrupted what might have been pleasant walking tour of this expensive neighborhood in late May 2015. Pan-handling people were there asking other people for donations. Men sleeping on the street in the late morning and early afternoon did not beautify the neighborhood or make the visit any safer. I found the street... More

Yorkville is a really nice street with many stores, coffee shops and restaurants. The street surrounding it are as beautiful and alive. In this area there are many designer stores but also some common affordable ones. I would really recommend to look it up for a few hours while in Toronto. Be aware of the construction on some streets.

A lovely upscale part of Toronto. Beautiful buildings and a very nice place to walk around. Expensive. A cool place to visit during your Toronto trip.

I always like to just park the car and take a walk with the family because of the lively vibe of the area. There are many, many fashion designer stores and fancy restaurants lining Yorkville Avenue and nearby streets. However, most of Toronto's upscale fashion designer stores are located on Bloor Street and not actually Yorkville Avenue. There are a... More

One of the fanciest and most expensive places in Toronto. Super close to Bloor St. where they have lots of huge brand name shops, I guess the expensiveness must have rubbed off into this area. This area is primarily fantastic restaurants, of which I have always gone to for a date and have never been disappointed. There is a really... More

Heard a lot about Yorkville and I remember it from previous visits albeit some time ago now. Found that a lot of the older style houses and buildings have been replaced, and during our visit, it appeared that Yorkville was undergoing massive reconstruction which was a little off putting. However when it is done,perhaps it will regain it old style... More

A very well designed upscale neighborhood where all the celebs come to dine during TIFF. The hood has some great condos, small parkettes and plazas where you'll see lots of little luncheons. Yorkville has some great restaurants and bakeries too, but the most popular spot has to be Hemingway's. In the summer their patio is packed and for good reason.... More
