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 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!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Great food and outstanding service; we enjoyed everything about this restaurant! A must go!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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!! :)"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "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!!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "What an amazing lunch time getaway right in the heart of the city... the servers and staff were all super friendly and attentive, the food AMAZING. Love this restaurant... will definitely go back again and again and again!!!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Two words- pearl platter! Amazing good, worth the price. Great environment and very pleasant staff"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Great ambience, and excellent service for a great overall dinning experience. However, the food fell short of my expectations from The Chase. Flavours were not impressive, and left a lot to be desired. I was dxtremely underwhelmed by all the food ordered by my table. Typical Toronto dinning experience; so much promise but so short of being world class."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "My appetizer of steak tartare was absolutely scrumptious and foreshadowed things to come! The main course of arctic char was superb and nicely presented. And the finishing touch of a lemon tart rounded off a great experience. The server was attentive, but not intrusive. She also recommended excellent wine pairings. I will return."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The Chase has to decide if they are going to cater to foodies who will come to the restaurant for a proper dining experience, OR if they are trying to be a supper club with loud music and a crowd that is there to see and be seen and don't care much about the food. Unfortunately the Chase has been over run with annoying large dining groups that take over the main room, are shouting above the already too loud music and that makes for a very unpleasant dinner, no matter how great the food is. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Loved the food, loved the room, loved the staff. The dungeness crab tagliatelli was delicious - meat super buttery, but somehow a lightness to the balanced dish. The chocolate and peanut butter dessert was super sexy. Great place to take people you want to impress and for any special occasion."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We had a delightful brunch. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was excellent. The ambience was modern but warm. We plan to come again in the near future. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The food was absolutely delicious, and the service by David was spectacular!!! We are not from Toronto but have been recommending The Chase to many friends who are planning a trip to TO. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "This is now one of my favourite restaurants in the city. Everything was wonderful. We had the mango and shrimp starter (highly recommend) and octopus to start and for out meals we had the surf and veal turf - omg! And the fish - I think bass. Not sure how often the menu changes but I'm sure you'd be safe order anything off the menu and it wouldn't disappoint. The servers were knowledgable and friendly and the ambience was beautiful. I would highly recommend and looking forward going back when I can sit on the patio. "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "The food was excellent and service was amazing. We enjoyed the cocktails very much. The Seabream and Article Char were delicious. Don't forget to order the oysters, which were very fresh and presented very nicely. We only had room to share 1 dessert--the key lime tart was a perfect way to end the meal. Looking forward to our next visit. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Impressive menu .. We had lobster and veal in the same dish! Generous servings. A bit too noisy to be romantic but nice and impressive restaurant nonetheless "
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "An absolutely stunning venue commensurate with the food ,wine and service. Kudos."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "The Chase has quickly claimed a prominent spot in the list of Toronto's most highly recommended restaurants and it's easy to see why. Interestingly, there are not a lot of sea-food focused fine dining establishments in Toronto...what with the high end BBQ craze still spreading uncontrollably and the fusion menu still going strong. You really can't go wrong with any of the appetizers here. The whole halibut is a must have, presented uncooked for approval (ceremonial of course) then perfectly prepared and artfully presented for consumption. Service is personal and professional. Only criticism (besides the annoyingly slow elevator!) is the wine list with starting price points for bottles in the $70+ range (going up to the thousands). "

  • "The food was very good, some items are a bit over priced but overall it is the place to be. Our server was great and very attentive."
