Looking for a rehearsal dinner location in Toronto

I'm looking for a good restaurant for a rehearsal dinner in Toronto (more inside).

More specifically, I'm looking for a downtown location that's classy but still kind of informal and able to seat approximately 27 people. Budget-wise, we're hoping to keep it to about $30 per person. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Could you clarify "rehearsal dinner"? Are you talking a wedding thing or what ...? Do you need a place that's quiet?

Classy? With a twist? Try Sultan's Tent.
Budget can definitely be worked out for a party of that size. Not just this restaurant but any.

Alize Fazooli's is a very good place, but again, slightly informal as well.

Howdy Card Cheat:

You might want to check out The Globe Bistro. Really, really, really good food. A nice mix of formal/elegant and laid back. Excellent service. A private room is available.

Also: check out The Niagara Street Cafe. Again, excellent food and service. Much smaller than The Globe: 27 would about fill it but you can book the entire space.

Although really you should have the rehearsal dinner at Medieval Times. There's going to be jousting at your wedding, right?

Response by poster: Sorry, I should have been more specific...yeah, a wedding rehearsal dinner. Thanks for the suggestions, Fuzz, although I doubt there will be much jousting at the dinner. The wedding itself will feature plenty of duels to the death.

Maybe not quite what you're looking for, but Autogrill is pretty informal and has a downtown location, tasty food, and the right price point, and I know they will do large bookings.

I was at a wedding party at Archeo in the distillery district. Very cool place - informal and contemporary pizza/pasta (here's their site); i think it definitely would suit your needs. they've got a great patio too.
