The top new patios for date night in Toronto are ideal for when you want woo your significant other with a night out. These picturesque outdoor eateries flaunt touches like hanging lanterns and fairy lights that'll give romantic evenings out the ambiance they deserve.

Here are my picks for the top new patios for date night in Toronto.

Fring's
Be link Drake and Rihanna and feast on Susur's latest creations at the 6 God's King West restaurant which has a side patio prettied up with patterned carpets, fairy lights and hanging vines.

Figo

Figo
Dreaming of a Lady and the Tramp style spaghetti dinner? Fashion yourself a high-class reenactment on Figo's greenery-clad patio. The space is a far cry from the surrounding pubs on John Street; here you can dine on top notch Italian fare and treat you and your loved one to a bottle of vino without being elbowed by aggressive sports fans.

Bar Begonia

Bar Begonia
If you're looking to wine and dine your better half in the Annex this summer, take them to Bar Begonia's patio. This sidewalk spot is decked out with gauzy white canopies and hanging lights, making it a hell of a lot prettier than the student dominated eateries in the neighbourhood. The restaurant is equipped with a stellar cocktail menu and French fare, adding to its appeal.

El Rey

El Rey
For those who prefer more casual date destinations, there's El Rey. While it's definitely a step up from most watering holes in Kensington, you'll still feel right at home in a jeans and t-shirt. What's on the menu? Small snack plates, more substantial dishes like ceviche and mezcal cocktails.

chabrol

Chabrol
Chabrol's chic little patio is the perfect summer date spot in Yorkville. It has marbled two-seater tables, manicured greenery and its own bar (so another bottle of wine is never too far away).
