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.

    Beautiful restaurant, gorgeous view. I believe most of the restaurant does have great ambiance, but we were seated in a long narrow stretch that connects one part of the dining room to the other. With people constantly walking through on their way in or out so it felt more like being seated in a hallway. The food was okay, but nothing special, and certainly not worth $80+ per person before alcohol.

    We went in expecting this to be a superior dining experience. It was. The 5F dining room is a little tight, but the tables by the window provide great views. The menu is great. Not foodies, but we like good seafood, and they did not disappoint. Because they are a little ambitious with the seating, it is tight - you are close to most other tables, and can hear most ocnversations. The carpeting on the floor damps the noise, however, No surprises, but we expected a 5 start experience going in, and it was met.

    This place is known for "fish" and "seafood" menu, the fish was too fishy, and our oysters didn't taste fresh. Small portions as expected. Also we expected top notch service, our waiter didn't give a nice vibe when we decided no dessert and coffee. Lastly, it was a birthday and we already gave them a note before hand. Even a $20 Kelsey's restaurant would give a surprise complimentary dessert, even with reminder The Chase didnt provide any.

    The first impression is great; you experience a bit of mystery as you walk to the front door through a short alleyway then up the elevator to the fifth floor. The decor is beautiful; reserve one of the purple booths if you can. The service was attentive but not intrusive and the food was great. From the complimentary focaccia loaf on the table to the surprise of a personalized dessert at the end (we were celebrating an anniversary); the dinner was great, plating was beautiful, wine was great. A solid dinner. Next time we'll bring friends; we don't want to keep this experience to ourselves.

    Took my girl for her bday. Asked for a nice romantic table for two but I dont think that request was followed through as it seemed we were just seated at a regular table. Other than that it was a fantastic experience. The food was seriously phenomenal...could not have asked for more delicious food. It was pricey but for a special occasion well worth it. The appetizer we got was a little small for an entree price of $24 but then again the gnocchi was a steal at $10 (side dish) and it was amazing. Overall one of the best dining experiences ive had. She loved it and thats all that mattered to me.

    We waited absolutely forever for the food, and when it arrived, the portions were minuscule, and quality was very below standard, given the price point. Wine list was good though. The Toronto restaurant scene, overall, is so far behind NYC, London and Paris, it is shameful; the Chase is emblematic of the amateurish attempts at top level dining, with nice look, but poor management and food. Will not be returning, and will not recommend if anyone asks.

    I choose this restaurant for my husband's birthday and it exceeded our expectations. They have top notch service (I would say it's better than Canoe's ) and the food presentation flavours were amazing! We got the halibut to share and it was outstanding and filling! The only regret we had was not to start at The Chase oyster bar for oysters before dinner :)

    The menu is different between upstairs and downstairs - not sure which is better. Inconsistant service. Something on my dish was missing so had to be returned to the kitchen. Another item was charged to the bill in error. It is for people who have expense accounts. The food is nice and the restaurant is pretty. $80 for a light lunch for 2 and no drinks. Quite noisy. Four can dine at Mashu Mashu in Forest Hill Village for the same cost.

    This is special. Went for anniversary celebration and so ambiance/service was important. Service is top class - attentive/not too attentive, friendly/not too friendly, and a commitment to making your meal a special event. The last time I had experienced service of this caliber was in a top rated restaurant in France. As for food, I consider myself an amateur chef so I'm tough. Presentation was excellent. Had the signature Haddock and it was cooked was excellent. The area for growth is in pushing the boundaries of the menu - it is brief and and mainstream. Not a bad thing for a restaurant that is just starting to build its brand. Overall - a must try.

    Truly a wonderful restaurant. The atmosphere is lovely and we had a very attentive, without being in your face waiter. He was well informed regarding the menu and any questions we had he explained fully. We shared our starters and our mains (sorry I know you call them entrees) and they were exceptional. Perhaps only one gripe - the wine list although comprehensive was also quite expensive without an option for something a little less costly - there are still good wines that are less than $80. Irrespective of this we shall definitely return as we enjoyed the entire night and all The Chase has to offer.

    I was delighted to find Chase, coming from the UK where we have some of the best Michelin rated restaurants in the world, Chase is about as close as it gets to that kind of dining. The staff are beyond attentive, knowledgeable and go out of their way to ensure your evening is one to remember. The menu at first can be a little confusing but just go with it, you will NOT be disappointing. Definitely my second favorite restaurant in Canada, maybe at my next visit they can change my mind and make it my First!

    This is the third time eating at The Chase and it's a wonderful place for lunch. You can even get a table if you make the reservation the night before if you are flexible on the time. The hostess sat us at a group of tables along the wall which was not so nice and a little crowded, but our server moved us across the room to the window which was roomy and bright. It made our lunch that much better. They prepare the fish very well, it's never overcooked and seasoned well and their bread is wonderful. If it's a warm sunny day get a table outside.

    First, I want to note the great service provided by our waiter Dave. He was very attentive and friendly, even when my friend was giving him a bit of a hard time at times! The food was generally great. Our appetizers, the Pearl Platter, was okay (tuna was a tad bit overdressed and oysters were underwhelming, but octopus and crab were great). However, the halibut for two was really great. It was also a nice touch when they brought out the fish while it was almost done cooking to let us see the whole fish before it was deboned and plated. For dessert, the berries I got were very fresh (with a touch of buffalo yogurt), but my friend's peanut butter and chocolate was awesome. Hoping to go back here sometime soon!

    My husband and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary at the The Chase and were treated very well and because we told them it was a special occasion we both felt like there was a special touch added to our experience. Our server was courteous and engaging, the food was just lovely and while the noise was a bit energetic it did not take away from our experience. Food portions were just perfect and very yummy.

    Staff were attentive without being obtrusive, knowledgable about the menu. Enjoyed the portion sizes; although a previous review said that three lamb chops would have been preferable to two, i was happy with the portion sizes so that I had space for dessert. Would definitely recommend. Glad that the noise level in the dining room is quite a bit less than in the bar area. Was able to carry on conversation easily. Will definitely return.

    It was an anniversary dinner so I wanted to ensure a good meal and service. So Chase delivered on both counts. Only complaint is that the wine bottle was not on the table so a couple of times I had to look around for the server as my glass was empty. To all restaurants.... let me pour my own wine!! Other than the wine, the servers were attentive. Food was very good and it was nice of them to chip in with the dessert..... though I still would have preferred to have our choice of dessert instead of told which dessert we were to get.

    I have enjoyed lunch and dinner at this restaurant, but my latest dinner was disappointing. Food and service was good, but there were too many large groups who were noisy - office workers being let out of their cubicles and drinking too loudly. Other parties were kind of pretentious. I dont think I will rush to return in the evening. Lunch might be better for this place.
