A word from The Chase
The Chase is our passion for Casual Elegance. Our rooftop restaurant highlights what we love most about upscale dining, and presents it in a modest, welcoming and thoughtful way. Our ongoing chase for the finest ingredients from around the world coupled with simple and uncomplicated flavors is the foundation for our culinary philosophy. Using refined techniques from Italian and French cuisines we formed a menu that can be best described as Contemporary North American. It celebrates the beauty of simplicity and keep you craving more. The service is detailed and technical, but as comfortable as being at home. The room is sophisticated, but refreshingly approachable and unpretentious.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The food and service were excellent. Imaginative menu and very attentive adn friendly wait staff. The patio is a great place to spend a sumer evening."

  • "We sat on the patio, which was lovely, but a lady was smoking continuously. Fortunately, the breeze was blowing the right way, and people were moved, so the staff was accomodating. The food was delicious. We started with oysters, and moved on the mains which were the scallops, arctic char and sea bream, all of which were really yummy. Then, we were surprised by my husband being presented with their chocolate dessert and a candle. We hadn't said a thing, but I guess they noticed us toasting his birthday at dinner. We had the lime dessert and the cheesecake and both were really good. All around a lovely experience. I would highly recommend the Chase."

  • "I have dined at the Chase on two occasions and thoroughly enjoyed both nights out. It's a special place, with a great vibe and view. It's rare for a Toronto restaurant to be so innovative, fun and classy. The service is incredible, especially our server Geoff!"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "The best service you'll find in Toronto. Simply fantastic service levels - perfect. The food is excellent ... but not spectacular. No complaints and a lot of great things to say about it - but it fell short of a Wow Factor taste experience like you would find at most other of top-tier fine dining foodie-friendly restaurants in Toronto."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Service and food were excellent but we were shocked at a couple of prices. A martini was $18. I asked about a special, which was a 16 oz rib steak. The price? $130!! Glad I asked. My wife ordered the "rack roasted lamb" which turned out to be two smallish pieces. The price? $44! Really? For that price there should have been 3 or 4 pieces. Interestingly, our 3 fish dishes were more reasonable. I understand the cost to deliver great food and service in that location must be high but they should try to minimize the surprises and inconsistencies."

  • "Amazing from start to finish. Took my wife for her birthday. She loved it. Food was mouthwatering and service great. I recommend to anybody who wants to be pampered. Even the dessert was out of this world."

  • "LOVED our evening at The Chase. Service was amazing. The server noticed my husband had a hard time reading the menu & brought over a selection of reading glasses for him to pick from. The brioche-like foccaccia was delicious. Appetizers were great; I had the avocado w/ shrimp, my husband had the tuna tartare (mine was terrific, his was even better). Our mains of veal & fish were cooked to perfection. For dessert, I couldn't choose between a PB chocolate dessert and a keylime meringue dish - I settled on one, and to our surprise the server ended up bringing both (one on the house) as he said they were too good to pass up. To top it all off, our car was pulled up, doors open & ready when we reached the valet at the end of the evening!"

  • "Our meals took too long- we waited over 30 minutes, and it made for a very awkward lunch with an important client."

  • "Jordan Alessi has a great team at The Chase, with a very dynamic wine list and the food is superb."

  • "The atmosphere, the service and the drinks were really good. Really liked the patio!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Went to Chase to celebrate a close friend's birthday, and sat outside on the rooftop patio. Our server Quinn was charming, attentive and well-informed. Loved the patio, the elegantly presented and delicious cuisine and the wines (by the glass) were perfect accompaniments to the dishes we chose. Birthday dessert was on the house AND served with a personalized marzipan message. We loved the unrushed, friendly vibe and caring service. I would definitely go back to Chase. No, it's not inexpensive, but I felt we got great value for superlative food and service."

  • "A beautiful room, with no detail overlooked. We had a very light lunch, but we enjoyed what we ordered very much. Service was very good."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "The Chase was a recommendation from a friend and it was seriously good. I was entertaining guests from overseas and they had a ball! Food was excellent as was the service and ambience. This is definitely on the $$$ side of high for food and drink - for example, a shot of very old Macallans whisky was $120 plus tax - as a Scotsman, let me tell you no whisky is worth $120 for 1.5oz. Great restaurant and the food was definitely worth the price. I can highly recommend the Dungeness Crab pasta - very good."

  • "Everything on the menu looked amazing, but when our server told us they could put together a tasting menu on the fly, we immediately put ourselves in their hands; they did not disappoint. Three incredible seafood, one vegetarian and one red meat dish later, we'd been wowed and delighted beyond expectation. Notable surprise: as an additional pairing with our last course - a succulent beef rib done in beautiful sweet and spicy asian flavours, our server brought us fine rum on ice, with a small glass bottle of coke to top up with: inspired. Service was uniformly decorous, but also enthusiastic, which made the whole experience that much better. The space is elegant, sexy, but comfortable. I would love to become a regular here."

  • "Delicious seafood. Crazy expensive wine list. Skip the wine, enjoy more food"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We had the signature chicken stuffed with foie gros and a special mushroom dish. Fantastic. Sat outside for our anniversary. Cigar smoking is permitted. Only complaint was noise from surrounding construction"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I took my husband here for his birthday dinner. The food was great and the interior decor was also very nice. I would say this is the perfect after work hang out. The only thing I didn't like was that is was VERY loud and they played loud music as well, which probably brought the volume up, but that wouldn't stop me from going again!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "If you want to have some great food and service in an ear splitting setting then dine here. Too many people screaming at each other across the tables to enjoy the terrific food. Too bad."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "The service was lacking this time at Chase. It took us forever to get someone to take our food order and then bring us the bill. Food was also not as good as the last time....had the halibut which was good but the bed of veggies that it was served on top of were lacking in taste."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "The menu stays fresh and always perfectly executed. Just cannot get enough of the "Lime"."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Chase can have you in and out in 1 hour if you need to be - or longer if you want to linger."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Great Location for anything from your first date to a business meeting. Great wines, Excellent food and Ambiance. Make sure you save room for deserts, all options are heavenly. The food is first class with great portions but in the right balance. Food is not overly complex yet with enough innovation to say this is Original. The Arctic Char, Spinach Pasta were the best items we ordered for the night."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We went on the recommendation of a few - and it was beautiful! The food was delicious, loved the room, and service was excellent. Enjoyed lobster (the most inventive dish), char, and a spinach pasta - all expertly prepared. The bar and patio were cute, looking forward to visiting again. Recommend!"

  • "Our table at the Chase provided a great view of Young street and the ambiance within the restaurant was very comfortable. While my appetizer, stuffed avocado, was more visually appealing than my entrée, both were incredible in flavour and texture. The Chase is an amazing location to celebrate any event or to simply treat yourself and others to one of Toronto's exceptional dining experiences."

  • "Eliah was our waiter and he was fabulous. He was so attentive and fun the entire night!! One of the better waiters I have had in years!! :)"

  • "The staff is very attentive and pay attention to details all the way through the dining experience. The bread was fantastic, the pickled strawberry provided a nice twist to the traditional appetizer. The lamb was perfectly done and the coconut cake for dessert was to die for!!!! Chef Dave is a master of culinary skills and is a great find for The Chase Restaurant in Toronto. Chef Dave is on his way to becoming an iconic Chef and Chase TO well deserves the Top Restaurant rating! This is a definite dining location to return to and recommend to others!"

  • "Arrived an hour late but reservation was still honoured, service was great and food was ok. Was a little noisy, not recommended if you're looking for a romantic or quiet candlelight dinner."

  • "We celebrated our son's graduation with friends and family. The server was very attentive. The food was exceptional. We will definitely be back again. Thanks The Chase for another great evening."

  • "My wife and I had our 2nd anniversary there on Monday. Service was 12/10, and so was the food. What a great place."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Having exceptional food, whether at lunch or dinner, sitting upstairs or downstairs, this establishment has got it all~! Now with the summer weather, the terrace is quite inviting for a change of pace. The chef on either level "rocks", demonstrating special care and attention to every dish served. And, each dish served rises above a plate of food to an expression of love, both in terms of taste and presentation. From oysters, to fried chicken on the lower level, to roast chicken with foie gras on the upper level, menu options are extensive and hard to choose from...it is never about settling! Otherwise a home run!!"

  • "Great food for a lovely evening to celebrate something special. Bar drinks and wine list are also very good! Embiance indoor and out was outstanding. Would recommend to friends or family members."

  • "It's a great place, very welcoming upscale decor, good food and just a great place to have lunch or whatever else...."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "...we weren't blown away. Based on all the accolades this place has received we expected better. The food was just "okay", the service was lackluster, but the outdoor space was terrific, particularly on the night we dined, (though firing up the patio heater placed 18" from a diners head on a pretty hot June evening is probably not the best plan). The outdoor table arrangement though, is far too tight. If you're going to charge prices akin to the best restaurants in the city, you better hit all of the right notes. Unfortunately, all of the notes The Chase hit were flat. Maybe it was an off night, but we likely won't be rushing back any time soon."

  • "Went there for a birthday dinner and the staff were great and all very friendly and knowledgable about the menu. I asked for the recipe for a cocktail I ordered and the waitress had the barman write it down for me and gave mixing suggestions. Took the time to explain the menu and for dessert wrote happy birthday and included a candle. Will def return"
