Well, it is not Goodman in London or some amazing trattorie in Florence like "la Buca dell'orafo" but Jacob ranks for surely just behind this too and so I confirm it must be the best in Toronto. Very cozy place and very nice waiters to helped us in suggesting the right meat cuts. My wife had a strip loin us... More

I've heard around that Jacob's served the best steak in Toronto and my boyfriend had really wanted to try it out, so the birthday occasion was perfect. Reserving a table at Jacobs is difficult. You should reserve at least a week or two in advance if you want to have an earlier dining time. We had to change our reservation... More

If you like steak, then you haven't had good steak until you've had Wagyu! I had the Snake River Farms Wagyu-ID, USA at this restaurant. Apparently the cow is a cross breed between USDA and Japanese Kobe (if I'm not mistaken). I didn't go for the Tajima beef because our server it's very marbled and quite fat, which can be... More

Enjoyed a lovely romantic dinner. Everything that was brought to our table was cooked with perfection. The focal point is obviously a very vast array of beef, including the best wagyu I have ever tasted, but the apps and sides were just as curated. Our server was very informative and spent the time explaining everything with charm.Truly a great experience.

From the front desk staff to the service staff, the greeting is always warm and friendly. The food - fabulous! Huge shrimp for the shrimp cocktail, the steaks (Rib-eye) always tender and well seasoned, and dessert - go for the monkey bread....

I am visiting Toronto on business for a week and was brought to Jacobs by a colleague for a late dinner. Lets start by saying that the overall experience was amazing ! The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. Our drinks were on point as sat at the bar and waited for our table to open up. Each course seemed... More

Fiance took me here for my birthday dinner since he's been to Jacob's a number of time for business. He was raving about the restaurant so I had really high expectations. In the end, it kinda feel flat for me. He mentioned that the waiter will talk about the story behind the steaks etc but that didn't happen when I... More

Whilst attending the recent WPC 2016 conference out in Toronto some colleagues and I found ourselves in need of some dinner following a drinks reception nearby. After a quick Trip Advisor search we headed here and were pleasantly surprised at the ambience upon arrival. We understood that reservations were usually required however they managed to fit our group of nine... More

I travel extensively with work and am happy to say that this is the best steak restaurant I have ever been to. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect. We had the Caesar Salad for starter which was made at the table and was amazing. The main course steaks were fantastic. I really can't recommend this restaurant highly... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
