L2O Seafood Restaurant **


L2O’s cuisine reflects a repertoire of new and traditional cooking methods, exploring the intricacies of fish and shellfish in artful compositions enhanced by the best ingredients available from land and sea. Set within the historic Belden-Stratford building adjacent to Lincoln Park, L2O’s modern dining room, designed by Dirk Denison Architects, is divided into a number of distinct spaces, presenting a sense of intimacy accented by the natural beauty of light and dark woods, frosted glass, leather, and soft-colored stones. With an innovative menu, warm hospitality, and an engaging atmosphere, L2O offers a fresh perspective on fine dining.

We believe that wine can turn a great dining experience into a spectacular one. Whether ordered by bottle or by glass, the wine at L2O is designed to enhance our cuisine. Our approach to wine mirrors the warm, intimate elegance of our dining room.

Working closely with the L2O culinary team, as well as the best importers, wineries, and vignerons, L2O strives to ensure that every sip contributes to your meal. We have assembled one of the best white wine and Champagne lists in the country, as well as a red collection that beautifully complements our cuisine.


Our hand-crafted cocktails, which combine premium spirits with fresh ingredients, make perfect aperitifs to begin your evening at L2O. Some represent our takes on classic libations with house-made bitters, cordials, and syrups. Others are wholly original concoctions that are balanced in flavor, tailored to the season, and frequently built table-side.

Private Dining

L2O’s private dining rooms are sequestered from the main dining room and offer personalized spaces that suit any event up to 70 guests, and they feature their own private entrance and washrooms. The décor echoes the dining room aesthetic: blonde Sen wood paneling, frosted glass columns, leather-swathed chairs and chocolate-hued drapes.
