Essential Toronto Cuisine Is Here

When you dine at Fairmont Royal York, it’s a sensory journey – every time, at every point across this essential destination. Whether you join us at our modern Canadian Brasserie, REIGN, for traditional French fare, or for best-in-class teppanyaki at Benihana Japanese Steakhouse, or at our all-time classic, the Library Bar, you’re tasting a unique culinary vision at the very heart of the city.

Food and drink at Fairmont Royal York captures the unique soul of Toronto. We draw from all the vivid multicultural influences of this great city, working largely from local produce sourced at fertile Ontario farms, wild caught fish and seafood, and the finest ingredients across the world. At the bar, our cocktails turn heads and win awards (you simply must try something prepared with honey from our rooftop apiary – or a pint of our Mill Street Apiary Ale). And our wine lists will leave you in awe, with bottles sourced from California to Champagne to Chablis.

Every bite, every sip, every moment: this is a culinary experience that captures the heart and soul of this unmatched Toronto destination. We can’t wait to serve you very soon.

REIGN Restaurant + Bar + Bakery - Fairmont Royal York

REIGN Restaurant + Bar + Bakery

REIGN is a modern Canadian Brasserie with a traditional French touch – a fitting tribute to this timeless landmark. It's a living celebration of the riches of Canada, and the new essential restaurant in Toronto, with three dining experiences - a restaurant, bar and bakery.

The restaurant serves inspired plates, built with fresh ingredients from across Canada, and finessed with French mastery. The bar is sophisticated, with big-city flair and more than a hint of country nobility. The bakery is the ideal spot to satisfy your sweet tooth and enjoy an artisan-roasted coffee.
