MONTECITO RESTAURANT

Montecito Restaurant is a partnership between Toronto-native and Hollywood director Ivan Reitman and Master Chef Jonathan Waxman.

Like its southern California namesake, Montecito combines a casual elegance with effortless sophistication in the heart of Toronto’s Entertainment District. The two-storey dining room, lounge and outdoor Adelaide Street-facing patio is located steps away from film festival headquarters at TIFF Bell Lightbox.

With hands-on culinary leadership from Jonathan and Executive Chef Matt Robertson, Montecito’s menu changes daily, marrying the simplicity of the California cuisine that Jonathan himself pioneered, with ingredients that pay homage to the best of Canada coast-to-coast.

Highlighted throughout is Jonathan’s passion for Canadian produce – with a focus on working directly with local farmers, seasonal Ontario fruits and veg, organic chicken from Mennonite cooperatives, cheeses direct from the nearby dairies, grass-fed beef, maritime provinces shellfish, just to name a few.

Montecito Restaurant is committed to improving access and opportunities for people with disabilities by identifying, removing, and preventing barriers that might interfere with their ability to make full use of our facility.  Please click here to view our Accessible Customer Service Policy.
