I'm a vegetarian and I have pretty severe food allergies. I don't go out to eat a whole lot, but my birthday is coming up and I'd love to have an allergen-free dinner in a nice restaurant in Toronto. I'm looking for recommendations coming personal experience of exceptional service/allergen accommodation at restaurants in Toronto rather than "well, Yelp says..." because I'm great at googling and I know what Yelp says!
If it helps refine your suggestions, I don't eat any meat or fish and I'm severely allergic to soy, cow's milk/dairy (including butter), sesame, almonds, walnuts and corn. Being allergic to soy and sesame seems to exclude basically any Asian restaurant as they are so prevalent in their sauces and I'm so severely allergic that cross-contamination is a concern. Price is no object -- I'd love something upscale since it's a special occasion -- and I'm open to suggestions across the GTA, although the closer something is to the downtown core, the more likely I am to go.
