These Booths Were Made for Gawking: who sits where at La Société

These Booths Were Made for Gawking

The cuisine is supremely so-so, but the glitzy atmosphere and A-plus people-watching at La Société—the crown jewel of Toronto’s see-and-be-seen scene—more than make up for it. Here, the inside scoop on who sits where.

  • oize

    The food is still shit.

  • Allan Smith

    Is it me or does the place get more recognition than it deserves?

  • The Cut

    Toronto life is shit for publishing non-sense like this, and I’m even more shit for reading this. Oh self important tier-2 city magazine!

  • grasshopper

    I never heard of it

  • John

    Thats all TL does, get us all in a tizzy with controversial topics. This place is awful, over rated, over priced and caters to the old lazy yorkville people upstairs in the condos (Sorry if u are and reading this ) but been there twice and would never ever go back. STOP saying its like paris – its not!!!! Awful! Average service.

  • bubble tea

    what a stupid story , who authorizes this stuff?

    write about something more important instead of kissing the asses what TL thinks are important things

    what a joke!

    Something tells me at least half of the names dropped in these pictures were just “circulated” by the management in order to drum up hype. Still sounds like the same 30-40 people who make up the core of Toronto’s “upper class”, and show up to almost every society event. There’s no variation, no new and surprising clientele.

    We spend part of the year at our house in Italy and like to read Toronto Life to keep updated. But this??? Really, how boring and un-informative.

  • Freakshow

    This makes Toronto Life look like a magazine full of douchebag writers. Never would I want to go to such a place, unless I had a lot of plastic surgery. Please provide your readers with something more substantial than gawking at the ‘popular’ kids in the ses pool we call Toronto high society. I would rather stay home and get high on myself.

  • Fidel Castro

    Ben Mulroney is the biggest loser on television. Why would anyone want to listen to this dick head?

  • Mary

    this place sounds truly dreadful!
    I’ll take a pass

  • stefan wypchol

    this place looks stunning ( especially the floor ) but the food is mediocre and the attitude of the staff quite unnecessary !

  • maurice88

    regardless of the thematic bOOOoooring traditional ‘french’ decor (even the french don’t do that anymore) this place activated what is otherwise dead at night section of bloor and took full advantage of great space inside and out.
    great hamburgers and nice staff.
    oh and where those toronto celebrities sit… also boooooring

    LOL….I totally forgot about this place until I read this article. It is quite a ridiculous place, I didn’t event know it was a restaurant until I looked at the menu. I thought it was a cafe for cougar women in their 50′s who are single, and their faces are pulled so tight they can barely see! Why can’t these people get a JOB!! oops thats another story. All anyone was doing was staring at each other and judging people walking by. Toronto sometimes can be so sad. I work on Bay street and venture to Yorvkille to get away….but…I think I’ll stick to the brainy area of the city. Plus, I need to eat real food for God sakes!! :)
