Acadia or Woodlot

I've been to both recently, and would also say Acadia. Woodlot is comfort food and I was expecting more. Acadia is really innovative and delicious.
But the best bread in the entire city is Woodlot's Red Fife, so don't miss that!

Kid friendly - Sneaky Dees?

Thanks everyone! We went this week, at around 6:30, and it was such fun. The waiter greeted us with colouring books and crayons, the bouncer helpfully suggested we leave the stroller at the front door where he could watch it, and everyone was super friendly to our son, including the hipster clientele. He had a blast. It's on the list of kid friendly places now!

Kid friendly - Sneaky Dees?

Anyone been to Sneaky Dees with a toddler? I love that place and am craving King's Crown Nachos but wondered if I could bring my child with me.
Thanks!

Kid Friendly AND good food?

Just heard that Hey Lucy and Axis Gastropub on Bloor are both relatively kid friendly. Anyone been to these places? Are they also places where the food is actually edible?
I've also discovered that Rancho Relaxo on College is a wonderful place to take a small child.

Kid Friendly AND good food?

I will definitely try Le Select -- I worked there as a teenager over 20 years ago when it was on Queen Street! It never occurred to me to go their with my child. And I will also try Harbord House. The problem is distance -- when my kid comes home from daycare the last thing I want to do is make a long trek, I just want to go out the door and down the block (we live in the south Annex).
I remember as a kid loving the Organ Grinder -- I wonder if it's still there.

Kid Friendly AND good food?

I'm just back from a two month trip to Europe; I think I cooked about 4 times during our entire stay. Why? Because the restaurants were largely wonderfully delicious, well priced, and easy with a toddler. I wouldn't dream of eating out that often here; it's a chore to find a place with good food and a kid friendly atmosphere (let alone a high-chair)! I do have a few places I like to go, so I thought I'd share them; but mostly I would LOVE to hear what you people like! Downtown Toronto is where I'm at.
1. Bar Italia -- food isn't great, but good; more importantly, the staff is wonderful with my wild child.
2. Burger Bar -- yummy organic hot dogs for the kid, yummy burgers for me, and an owner who gets it cause he has a child of his own.
3. New, Le Kensington Bistro, where La Palette used to be -- I was somewhat put off my the lack of atmosphere (or so it seemed from the outside), but once in, the food was really tasty, extremely reasonably priced, and the staff (and owner) were very welcoming with my kid. Even played with the toddler while I wolfed down steak-frites.
4. Terroni, of course, if you go when there's no line (when's that again?).

Seriously, that's all I can think of. Does anyone know, is La Soceite child-friendly? Harbord House? Tati? And other thoughts are welcome!!!!!
