Suggestions,please, for family (all adults) Christmas lunch on Sunday December 22.

They live not far from the PNE. Any suggestions for a holiday lunch relatively close to them? Thought of Horizons on Bby Mountain, but it only serves brunch on Sundays. Ditto Hart House.
Would rather not go downtown.
All I seem to find online near PNE are pubs and very casual restos.
Looking for good food with a bit of atmosphere.
Help!

Christmas in Vancouver

I will be visiting Vancouver December 22 and 23 and would like to take my sister, her husband and their 2 adult sons to a great pre-Christmas lunch. They live east of the PNE quite close to Boundary Road.
Advice?

Dinner after AGO Friday night

Because of tight timing, took TTC, but would have been walkable if we'd have had a later reservation.

Dinner after AGO Friday night

Just to let you all know, we ended up at Campagnolo, which is on of my favourites. Gets noisy when full, but we were in the early (6:30) seating, so the noise level was just ramping up as we left. Highly recommend Campagnolo.

Brunch Sunday before touring ROM

Sorry, I just remembered I promised to report on La Societe. Food was fine, waiter was new at his job, so a bit hit or miss. Room was VERY crowded and noisy with many small children. Next time, I'd ask to be seated in the small bar/lounge instead of the main DR. But there WILL be a next time!

Brunch Sunday before touring ROM

Flo's is one of my favorites but has HORRIBLE line ups. Bloor Street Diner is so so for food.
We have a reservation at la Societe and will report after!
Thanks for all the input.

Brunch Sunday before touring ROM

Great idea, Jennjen!
I love C5 (had brunch there 2 weeks ago) and do want to get to the Gallery Grill sometime, but my friend was hoping for something 'diner-ish'. Over Easy fits the bill and couldn't be more conveniently located.

Brunch Sunday before the Jays game

Family flying into town from Fort MacMurray to take in a weekend of the Blue Jays. Would like to take them for brunch somewhere great that's easy for them to get to the Dome. Please don't say Cora's (YUCK). Niagara Street Cafe is near me and I love it, but always interested in something new. 4 adults and a 10 year old.

Resto near TIFF Bell Lightbox for tomorrow Sat Feb 12

Suddenly realize that many couples will be celebrating Valentines on Sat night and might be difficult to get 3 seats in a resto nearby around 6:30, Any suggestions for reasonably priced where I might try first??

Yonge St. Clair, Eg or Lawrence

3 people are meeting for dinner for the first time in a few years. One is at Yonge and Sheppard, another at Yonge & St. Clair and the last will meet them anywhere. For convenience, a good resto near a subway station would be best (two walk with canes). Pleasant atmosphere, reasonable prices. Any ideas??

Downtown Italian restaurant for birthday dinner?

For a very special birthday dinner (expensive, but VERY worth it)try Noce, at the corner of Queen Street West and Walnut. A fine menu and lovely service.

For great food in a larger restaurant setting with old fashioned service, try Romagna Mia at George and Front Street West.
