lbs. Restaurant


100 Yonge Street | Toronto



lbs. is a seafood focused restaurant specializing in Nova Scotia Lobster. We really wanted to bring a fresh, value driven menu to the financial core and showcase that in a beautiful space.

A comprehensive list of east & west coast oysters, octopus, east cost crab, surf & turf family style offerings, and of course our 1.25lbs Nova Scotia lobster with house cocktails to match. We are partners with ocean wise, and are constantly looking to source sustainable seafood as well as ensuring our meat is antibiotic and hormone free.

lbs. is a place for after work drinks, a pre-show dinner, lunches with clients, and that special occasion.


Our signature Ice Cream Sando, is a collaboration of von donuts and ed’s real scoop ice cream. Choose between any of our signature flavours.

Holly Caverly leads the cocktail program at lbs. Restaurant. Cocktails include simple yet premium ingredients and, like the menu, each cocktail is comprised of no more than four ingredients. House-made Italian sodas are also available and change seasonally like raspberry orange and blackberry with lime cordial.


lbs. is an innovative dining concept created to shake up the restaurant scene in Toronto’s downtown core. lbs. pronounced ‘pounds’ founded by restaurateurs Jonathan Gonsenhauser and Will Tomlinson.

To challenge the industry convention of pricing lobster items very high, Gonsenhauser and Tomlinson founded lbs. with a rebellious spirit and set out to provide the freshest lobster at an affordable price in an upscale restaurant setting.
