Diner Reviews
  • "The food was excellent, the only reason I gave four stars was because three of us ordered the exact same dessert, but mine was significantly smaller! Portions should have a standard size, in my opinion. Initially, our server seemed annoyed at having to repeat things to us, but I think it was his sense of humour and he lightened up later and was fun. Lovely atmosphere! I would definitely return and recommend!"

  • "Have been to Chiado during summerlicous. winterlicious and otherwise. The food has always been of a consistently high quality with beautiful presentation as well as a satisfying portion. The staff are well informed as to their menu and are attentive without being overbearing. The seafood was cooked perfectly - I had the sardines and the sea bream as my entree. My 4 other friends were also very satisfied with their respective choices and we have already recommended Chiado to a couple of other friends to try."

  • "This was probably one of the best Summerlicious meals I have ever had. My only complaint is we were seating in an adjoining area to the main restaurant5. Seemed to be for banquets or larger groups and was missing some of the intimacy of the main dinning area. Other than that , the food was great, portion size was excellent. Desert was on the smallish side but when taking with first and second course was the perfect size."

  • "Fantastic food and service, and truly a special place to celebrate any and all occasions. Great appetizer plate of octopus, shrimp and sardines. Then a most enjoyable plating of three fish specials, and lobster risotto for our entrees. Highly recommend a visit, and place yourself in the hands of your server for an unforgettable food experience."

  • "Chiado transported me back to a time when people primped and dressed to dine out, to make "eating" an "occasion" and in respect of both the establishment and one's self. In turn, the establishment lavished you with welcoming, affable, and personalized service, creating "an experience" to cherish. This was Chiado. Aside from the beautiful environment and the outstanding service, the food was BEYOND. From the greeting at the door, to the creatively folded napkin, to the waiter who so kindly and respectfully catered to our every whim, to the stunning amuse bouche, and the delectable apps and entrée that made me with whimper with glee...what an incredibly fantastic evening. Worth every penny for "the experience" and crazy fabulous food. "

  • "This was our first time dining here. They have great fish and seafood on the menu. Some flown in from Portugal fresh. We ordered appetisers of grilled sardines and an arugula fig salad. Amazing flavours. Then we both ordered fish from Portugal. My husband had the trio of different fish and I had one that had a bit of kick to if. Both wonderful. You never had to ask for anything they replenished bread and water without prompting. Although it is no bargain to eat here I think it is well worth the money. Great evening we will return. "

The food and service exceeded our expectations and we were presented with a special anniversary treat... A complimentary dessert sampler platter consisting of four pieces of cake... More than we could possibly eat! Thanks again Chiado and Open Table for a perfect evening!"

I ordered the grilled squid and octopus for appetizer and it was cooked perfectly. The servers were really attentive and I would definitely recommend this place to my friends."

  • "The food was good, the wine was excellent ...but it just seemed to miss the mark. Perhaps a little too much like homestyle cooking? The staff was excellent and I hate to write a so-so review, but it just was not exactly what I had hoped for. I love Portuguese food and they do it very nicely. That's what I can say."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Very near to a subway stop and a short taxi ride from downtown, Chiado was well worth the visit. Recommended by friends, we found this Portuguese fish restaurant to be excellent in all respects. Fish was well prepared, wine was excellent and chosen from an excellent wine list. Service was attentive. We will go again. More expensive than anticipated, but worth it. We look forward to going again when next in Toronto."

  • "I went for lunch with my husband on the last day of Winterlicious. I had been wanting to try this restaurant for years and it did not disappoint. We will definitely be back to try their regular menu. The food throughout the entire meal was fantastic and beautifully presented; I didn't feel like they skimped at all on either portioning or ingredients, even with it being a prix fixe menu. Amongst the delicious dishes we ate, the standout was the skate; it was poached in oil with a sundried tomato/spinach risotto underneath. Service in general is often lacking during the 'licious events, but here, it was efficient while still maintaining warmth and professionalism during the busy service. Note: tables for 2 are a little too close together."
