Elegant lakeside venue. Excellent service and delectable cuisine.
Amazing service, and views. Luxury event space . Very posh. Probably very pricey for events, big luckily to enjoy weddings and my prom here!
Nice place for a special occasion.Parking could be an issue.
We run an annual industry awards gala of between 200 and now almost 250 people. We have utilized this fantastic venue for at least 6 years but ever since Jocilea Orfano has been our event coordinator on site for at least the 4 years it has become much smoother. Since she has been our point of contact the lines of communication are much more dynamic and the ability to adjust has set ups has been much easier. With an event of this size with a reception, sit down dinner, and awards gala last minute attendee changes can effect diet requirements and seating requirements. Jocilea handles it all in stride. She always has a calm and professional demeanor about her and adapts seamlessly to our lead up to and execution of our event. I cannot speak more highly of her as an event professional as I have been part of 12 years of these events but by far and away the best executed and least stressful are the ones when Jocilea is on point.

One of the absolute best venues in town. The waterfront view is amazing. Picture a wedding with a gorgeous sun at dusk. Service great. Food, OMG. They have a resident chef that takes it very seriously! More...
Food was great, the venue is beautiful and the staff people are stars of Palais Royale. If you are planning an event, look out for Jacqueline - she will definitely help you beyond your expectations. We had a great night!
Palais Royale was absolutely outstanding from start to finish for our charity event. Jacqueline was our go-to and she was so easy going and incredible to deal with. I have to say it was an incredibly positive experience. The venue allowed for our staff to set up early, which aided with the overall smoothness of the event. The servers were wonderful with ensuring the food was set up on time. The food was absolutely amazing. Overall, I would 100% recommend this venue for all types of events! :) More...
I DJ many times here over the years for The Single Professional Network Great Venue!
Marriage party enjoyed
This Palais Royale ( Banquet hall) located at the water front of lake shore blvd. We attended family members wedding Ceremony and Reception dinner.
Great location for events.
Awesome food - donation to charity every Wednesday. Beautiful venue
Stunning views and great venue for events.
Our family celebrated a 100th Birthday with a Luncheon / Afternoon Tea at Palais Royale last week with approximately 150 guests. The venue, food and service was exceptional together with state-of-the art audio visual equipment / software. A special Thank-you to Jacqueline, our coordinator and Rob, Senior Technician, for accommodating all our requests.The feedback our family received from family and friends was over the top....truly a 1st class venue and afternoon.Palais Royale is a 'hidden gem' in Toronto, with a rich history dating back to the 1940's, 1950's and 1960's. It is a complete and memorable venue to celebrate any special event. More...
Excellent location for weddings and other events.
I have used Food Studio for both high profile professional events and personal events and every single time they blow me away. Their attention to detail and boundary pushing creativity always leaves my guests asking for business cards. You will also never work with kinder and more caring people. I can’t recommend them enough. More...
Was a guest at a reception here and service was great! Bartenders were awesome. Views on a very large deck was beautiful. At night it was well lit.Had a memorable night!
We would highly recommend Palais Royale, and the entire team, for their organization, professionalism and genuine level of caring towards their guests. We were married at Palais (ceremony, cocktails and dinner) and from start to finish, the evening was extremely well run. From our initial meeting with Jocilea, and the year-long planning with Chantelle and their Chefs, to the day-of execution from Chantelle, Antonio and Katie, we always felt like we were in good hands all the way through the process. I can't overstate their attention to detail, and how that translated into such great feedback from our guests; excellent food/drinks, coordinated event management, and service with a genuine smile. We feel lucky to have selected the venue, and the entire staff over-delivered to our expectations. Thank you again Palais team for making our special day truly special. More...
Great staff and facility.
Delicious buffet. Thanks to all involved in this wonderful charity event.
The view, atomsphere the whole ambiance surrounding the event was very enjoyable. Great venue.
We ended a week long celebrations of our Indian wedding with our Reception at Palais. We had initially signed with Palais because of the intimate single-event hall and the breath-taking waterfront deck. Over the year of planning, we realized the importance of having good vendors and we can truly say that Rebecca, our coordinator at Palais, made the organization and communication process a breeze for us. Rebecca you ROCK. Thanks for being so organized and available, you really stood out in the planning process across all of our events :). On the day of the Reception, Antonio and the team made sure everything ran smoothly with our 280 guests really well! The venue was set-up so nicely, we got the exact intimate feel that we wanted (even with the number of people we had). The chefs perfectly incorporated all of the comments from our food tasting to ensure that the Indian food on our Reception day catered to our tastes. The fire show that the bartenders put on had everything gasping. Our guests (and us) were truly in awe with not just the venue, but the hospitality that was prevalent through out the night. We had a BLAST!! I highly recommend Palais if you want an amazing wedding! More...
Breath taking. Right by the lake. Very romantic for function. Clean. Friendly staff.
Large open space, beautiful lake, good drink service, beautiful patio, there was only 1 washroom that I knew of so that was a bit of a fight to get into
Andrea Marcela Salazar
Food and service is amazing
The Wednesday Charity Lunch is fantastic. The price is right, the food is very good and plentiful, the staff is accommodating and kind and the atmosphere with Lake Ontario in the background and the beautiful space inside couldn’t be better. It’s always a treat to go there especially with someone special. More...
One of the most beautiful venues in the city
I was at the Palais Royale for a corporate meeting and had a wonderful experience. It is so nice to go to a space with a waterfront view instead of a four wall box. Activities were able to take place in different areas of the venue and the indoor space has beautiful natural lighting. Stepping outside on the back deck you forgot you were in Toronto, great way to spend a lengthy all day meeting. They had a great AV system and screens at all corners of the room making it easy to see. It allowed everyone to have a good view of what was being presented. Overall beautiful historic venue in Toronto! More...
I love this place it's a monument to great music acts throughout the ages
Great venue for functions. Overlooking the lake. Good parking. Entrance to parking could b a bit tricky.
Great venue. Even nicer if the patio is open. Drinks are on the pricey side. Different bar tenders seem to charge different amounts for the same order.
Great views. Excellent audio visual set up and the food was great. One of the better halls I've been to in Toronto. They also have a parking lot.
Very clean. Courteous Staff
Beautiful venue and conveniently located. Parking available on the opposite side of lakeshore, as well as extra pay parking in the parks by the lake. Also, the 501 streetcar can bring you into Roncesvalles, and it is only a short walk across the bridge to the venue. More...
Fantastic Wednesday charity brunch $15 all you can eat with a one-of-a-kind view and a large variety of food
Very nice buffet luncheon.
Great location with a beautiful view. Staff are friendly as well.
Great banquet hall that over looks the lake, amazing place to hold any event in the summer.
So, firstly, let me preface with the fact that I am an employee at the Palais Royale. Having served at many different venues, I have to say this is not only a one of a kind workplace, but a truly unique venue for any event, large or small. The team they’ve accumulated over the years, from the AV department, to the BOH chefs and kitchen staff, is as dedicated and accommodating as it gets. Our servers at the FOH work as a cohesive team, which I believe greatly enhances the guest experience. Our sole mission is to make the guests feel welcome & comfortable. The venue itself is so beautiful and I’m amazed by its versatility. It can be decorated so many different ways, wether inside the ballroom or outside on the gorgeous patio. Food and bar are of course a huge priority and I’m always excited to see what the team has prepared. With dishes ranging from dry-aged steaks with hearty sauces for the meat lovers, to a delicately assembled and highly flavourful eggplant Parmesan for the vegetarians, the cuisine is inspired, satisfying and always exciting. The same can be said about Palais’ delicious signature cocktails, including the new Queen Bee’s Knees with Empress Gin & Honey Rosemary Syrup.I really hope guests at Palais can see the heartfelt work put into each aspect of the event they attend and will keep having reasons to visit us in the future ! More...
Been a couple times as a guest to numerous functions and have always been impressed with the service, quality and the overall venue. Booked it for a personal event and was totally blown away with the level of service, quality of food and the care from each and every staff member. Would (and have) highly recommend Palais Royale to everyone i know. More...
Spacious. Great view of lake
Lovely location for weddings, parties and celebrations!
Great facility. This was a dance event from young professionals. Peter... A great job as usual! Bith hall and dance ... Highly recommended
Sooooo excited to be getting married here in the summer :)
Great venue and location. The staff and the food service and drink were all fantastic.
Love the washroom layout
This Shuck Glader
this is where palaye royale's grandparents met awwww
Stunning lake side view of the skyline from the massive patio. Inside it's got fantastic acoustics and lots of space. The staff were very friendly.
It's a very good venue. The staff are very professional. Meal was average but good appetizers.
Very nice place
Incredible venue. We got married here. Can't speak highly enough about every aspect.
Came here for my anniversary party. Wow oh wow! What an experience. I would HIGHLY recommend, hands down. Thank you for making such a great occasion that much more special. Stay Blessed and Obrigado :)
A nice place to enjoy
Was a very nice place where the canadian print action group had their annual award ceremony
Beautiful hall great views of Lake Ontario
Both events here that I've been to were spectacular and I had a blast. very pretty banquet hall with an amazing balcony and a nice view.
We held my fathers Celebration of life here recently. The staff were amazing, the venue was perfect. Washrooms were clean, neat, tidy and large enough to handle the amount of people. We have had nothing but complements on food, venue and event !! Well done More...
Nice event with a great view
Welcome To The Palais Royale Out In Toronto, Ontario Canada! In My First Video: Allan and I are on their Patio in the very back of the Beautiful Palais Royale. The place is quite lovely and quite old but where we are the View Is Spectacular and we just barely got here, but Yes, I have been here before because every Wednesday from 12:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m., they have a regular Fund Raiser called "Faith, Hope & Charity and they actually support three (3) charities which include: hellenic hope centre, gilda's club and join the dance canada. Their Food Is Excellent and Very Delicious as You can see in my Second (2nd) Video and furthermore, in the past, my mom, Mrs. Helene Shore along with my sister, Mrs. Lorraine Kiely have all attended their charity event and remember it quite well indeed! Furthermore, In My Second (2nd) Video: I just made it to the Very Delicious Buffet Food area and here I am speaking with Gwen who has been working at this Wonderful Charity Event for several years and I am also showing off All Of The Delicious, Healthy and Nutritious Foods that have been prepared for this event. I want to personally Thank Chef Steffan Howard for inviting ME here. I want to personally Thank Allan for joining ME as well back on Wednesday, October 17, 2018.

It is impossible to find the words to describe our fantastic experience at Palais Royale! From start to finish, everyone was incredible to work with - We loved coming to meetings and always felt like welcomed friends. The venue was STUNNING, our guests raved about the food and the service from literally EVERY SINGLE PERSON was exceptional. The professionalism, friendliness, and genuine concern for us, our families and our guests was beyond what we could have expected. If you are lucky enough to get married at Palais Royale, do it!!!! More...
Just watching the Toronto CNE airshow
If you are planning on having a wedding here then you have chosen the right place! Amazing food, service and great lake view, Antonio and Jocilea were amazing!!!
Nice view of the water attentive staff. Was here for a wedding. Apparently the kitchen will try to mimic cuisines you request from around the city like if you like grand electric tacos they will make them for you. Solid place no complaints.
Beautiful place and great service. Moonlight over the lake to end a great night out.
Great AV system. Clean washrooms. Fast service. Fast clean up. Friendly staff. Would go back
Very nice view! Great for events!
Went for a wedding, great service and great venue
Special lunch buffet for groups was very good
There's a certain kind of magic places like the Palais Royale exude. I go to an event yearly and the staff is professional and courteous. The facilities looks great, has ample room and free parking. Love it More...
So glad that the Palais Royale was restored. Beautiful place. Had lunch created by the George Brown Culinary students. Delicious.
The location of the venue is perfect, being on the shore and right next to Budapest park, makes for a picturesqpicturesque setting to compliment any function
One of a kind venue right on Lake Ontario. Amazing!
We had my sisters wedding here and it was amazing! The location is beautiful and the service was great!
Decent venue, nice view overlooking the waterfront. However, the food was not good. The chicken/turkey was very dry, and the dessert (apple crumble) didn’t help...
Beautiful for any occasion
What a view. What an amazing executive chef!
Gorgeous waterfront venue! Amazing staff, extremely friendly and accommodating! I photographed an event here!
After a LONG journey scoping out venues (I must have gone to 30+ venues in and around the city), the moment we walked into Palais Royale, we knew it was the ONE. We were looking for a single venue event (hosting only ONE wedding a day) and it checked off every box on our list. Palais Royale has perfected hosting weddings and events to a T! From the kitchen/catering staff to the bar tenders, sound/lighting crew to the security guards, Palais Royale offers a state of the art venue with breathtaking views of Lake Ontario as it is situated on the water (great photo potential!). The only issue I had was with the day of coordinator provided by the venue…she was extremely panicked and totally not in control throughout the setup process of our reception. She asked my mom and cousins to help her setup which is not okay seeing as we paid a heck of a lot of money EXTRA to have her as the day of coordinator. Luckily all of our other vendors were amazing and chipped in to help where they could. My recommendation is to source a coordinator outside of the ones the venue offers as it was very frustrating that she was not mentally or physically present for most of the reception. More...
Very nice place . Delicious food and good service. You can see the beautiful Lake Ontario at the patio.
Great spot for Dining and holding Events.
Surprised to find this place suddenly on the Ocean Shore! Tranquil!! Found Black Lillie’s there!
MJ Jean Marketing and Consultant
Very nice place to share a special moment with family .
Excellent venue for a wedding! Amazing patio for guests, food came out delicious and on-time.
I hadn't been in years. The whole place has been redone. It looks beautiful and the view of the lake can't be beat. Awesome service and good food and so accessible to downtown.
Excellent venue with an excellent team to go with it. Highly recommended.
Amazing venue for a wedding. We got married here in July 2017 , and everything was perfect. The ceremony space on the patio is beautiful, the service was outstanding , and the bartenders lit the drinks on fire which was so fun! Robert, (my coordinator and day of planner) made sure everything was perfect and was so easy to work with throughout the whole planning process. Thank you everyone for helping to make our day perfect!! We picked the perfect venue More...
I was transported into a magical fairy-tale from the dusty streets of Toronto. The venue was gorgeous inside and out. The service was solid and the food was excellent. The view was lovely and romantic from the terrace. More...
Had the pleasure of attending/MCing a wedding there on Nov 18/17. All I can say is that Palais is Fantastic! Food, atmosphere, and staff was all superb. Special thank you goes out to their AV tech Rob Boyd. He made my job easy and was on-top of every A/V technical requirement. The built-in system is fantastic. Can't wait for my next gig there! More...
Really nice venue, with lots of separate spaces. The waterfront patio had a beautiful view that really capped off the experience.
Çok şık ve harika konum..
Attended a winterlicious special culinary event at Palais Royale and the food was delish! The food was lukewarm but the flavours were there. The staff was friendly and decor evokes a fairytale like feeling:) More...
I visited the Palais Royale for the Toronto Resolution Run in December. Staff were friendly, atmosphere was nice. Very clean venue, despite having hundreds of snowy runners inside!
Great venue, great view
Very nice hall with good food, great views and also lots of parking available.
Beautiful location by the lake
The venue and food was great, but the parking lot needs to be paved. It's very difficult to walk on with high heals.
When it comes to having events ranging from weddings to proms or bamitsvas this is where to go the service , and the food and not to forget the view and the amount of stuff you get for your buck .
The banquet hall is located at the Toronto water front, so the lake view is gorgeous during sunset in summer. However, we attended a outdoor wedding ceremony on the patio during May and the swamps of flying bugs and mosquitos were pretty scary. This is no fault to the banquet hall though. The wedding dinner and services personal were great. More...
Large venue. Great balcony overlooking Lake Ontario
This venue was booked for my prime such a beautiful view of such a beautiful venue. I saw many problems after this also going to this venue and I’m very glad we were able to getting pictures with the leak behind you in the sunset is amazing. May set the school back a few bills but it’s really worth it. More...
Fabulous! Our guests were still raving about the food at last year's event when they arrived this year to find the chefs had outdone themselves once again. Beautiful and creative presentation, professional serving staff. Exceptional planning services, one stop shopping for any important occassion. More...
: Rob, thank you and your team for all the work put into Bollywood Christmas. A round of thank yous to everyone at PR for all their effort putting things together! The staff was courteous, professional, and very easy to work with. The managers ( Phil and Antonio) on the floor were very attentive and kept us continuously informed on service and the bartenders were very engaging. The chef received many kudos on the fusion meals! Things came together very well and we are thrilled to call it a success! Our guests had a great time and we appreciate all the work put in behind the scenes to make the night so much fun. Have an incredible holiday! More...
Accommodation is very clean and great service
Amazing place!! Loved it ♥
Very nice lakefront reception hall
Andrea Marcela Salazar
Service and food is amazing
Beautiful historic venue, lovely patio right on the water. Drinks are not cheap for sure.
Decent venue, ok food
Anne de Haas
Beautiful venue, amazing patio right on the water, great staff.
Recently attended a function here, great venue. Location is not easily accessible by cab.
Stunning venue, good food and service.
Beautiful venue on the lake with a great patio in the summer.
Place is beautiful, parking is a nightmare
Beautiful building and incredible location.
Place is nice but the catering is okay... Good selection though.
Palais Royale is the very definition of top-notch customer service, class and elegance. My wife and I could not speak highly enough about how much attention to detail the staff give. From the security to the kitchen and bar staff, AV staff and severs – every employee at Palais Royale made our night magical and did so with a smile on their face. Our meal was absolutely spectacular – Chef Steffan Howard did an amazing job delivering exactly what we discussed at our meal tasting and dinner planning. He was attentive and payed impeccable attention to detail in presentation, allergies and requests. Our guests could not stop raving about the food. I recall one family member describing the beef tenderloin as “the best piece of meat I’ve ever eaten”. The bar staff were lively and did an excellent job managing very thirsty guests. They did a really neat ‘flare’ show that really entertained our guests and did a great job making creative cocktails. The bar package included a much larger selection of beers and liquors compared to other reception venues. The service staff made sure our guests enjoyed their meal and did a great job topping up drinks during meals and circulating food and drink during the cocktail reception. They ensured that the bridal party were treated like VIPs. The venue itself was exceptionally clean and the spectacular sunset on their large patio was nothing short of breathtaking. The sound system was also top-notch and really delivered quite a beat during the dances! Even when things went awry with our cake company delivering a toppled cake, the staff already had plans B and C ready to go – which speaks volumes for how prepared and well trained the staff are. Most importantly, when things were stressful, the staff kept us calm and made us feel like everything will work out fine. Robin & Dora both deserve a medal. If I was the owner of this business, I would feel incredibly lucky to have such a dedicated and talented group of staff. Palais Royale will always have a place in our hearts for delivering us the perfect wedding. We would recommend Palais Royale to any friends without hesitation. More...
excellent venue for weddings, feels like a resort.....
This is where we cross over the Gardiner Expressway when we want to cross the highway to get to the many parks along the lakeshore - There is parking here and also gets you right onto the queensway. - A Richard Trus review.
Stunning scene on the water. Great event space, wonderful for private parties and weddings. Tad expensive for what they offer but if you want a great location, Palais Royal is it!
I was here a couple of weeks ago for a fashion show. I love Palais Royale! From the decor (inside and out), to the really nice staff and the Wonderful bartender. The view is an added bonus.
Great view! Great food!
Old dance hall. Good for wedding Receptions.
The outside is very nice
Beautiful venue right on the Lakeshore. Excellent service. Will definitely book future company events here again!
This place is a hidden gem! It has a ton of history and gone through a lot of changes over the decades it has been around. I got married here and it was an unbeatable venue. Patio over looking the lake for the ceremony, flare bartenders included, dance floor and bar in the same room so the party keeps going doesn't get split, like so many other venues. All of the staff provide amazing service all along the way, I would not hesitate to recommend this venue or use it again. They have definitely earned each of these 5 stars. More...
Nice and big outside area for bay watch
Amazing and Awesome place with an amazing deck looking over the lake.
Great view of the water.
Beautiful venue!Also there is free parking near by.
Nice banquet hall with an interesting history. Did you know that the floor is a cantilever hardwood floor so it actually bounces and moves? It's awesome to dance on. I used to go here 15 years ago to rave and they have certainly cleaned the venue up a lot since then. Really nice facility and a stunning patio. Go on Wednesdays for the charity lunch. For $15 you can get a delicious meal with dessert. More...
Love to go there. Always great food. Great chef "Steffan Howard"
Went there for my high school prom and John Snow from the show Game of Thrones was there. Loved every minute of it
what a great night. great food .i was stuffed. great music. hope they do this again next year!
Excellent Service and Staff! Clean washrooms, although downstairs. Food was Excellent!
