The Citizen is guided by a simple philosophy: if food is made with love, guests will always be happy. We blend a fresh take on local ingredients to create a unique style menu. The Citizen is where King West feels at home. It’s a place to catch the game, hang out on the patio, enjoy a cozy dinner for two, or party late into the night.


The Citizen design was inspired by the restaurant-bars of the 1930s, celebrating Toronto’s heritage by featuring numerous vintage design elements, including original beams from the historic Gooderham and Worts distillery.


The Citizen Restaurant & Bar enforces an upscale-casual style code Thursday through Saturday evenings. Guests wearing athletic wear or caps, ripped or baggy clothing, running shoes or construction boots and/or graphic t-shirts will not be permitted access. The Citizen’s style code is upheld at the discretion of door staff and management.
