    Atmosphere, staff, appetizers were amazing,however, the main course was just okay. I ordered the clam/mussels/lobster bowl. I received 1 lobster claw and 3 clams, and maybe 3 mussels in a little broth for $34. I thought that was a rip off. All the main courses were priced high and were insufficient. I know that this is a seafood restaurant, and prices tend to be higher, but I did not see the value for the money.

    Food was excellent and service at lunch was attentive without being pushy. Overall a great experience bar the noise levels. Inappropriately loud rock music made no sense considering the surroundings and clientele, and did nothing but spoil the general atmosphere.

    One of the best restaurant experiences we've had in a while. Ambience is sophisticated yet casual and unpretentious. Noise level is moderate and the atmosphere has a good "buzz". Young staff are friendly, charming and provide a very professional level of service. The food is first rate by any standards. We will certainly return!

    Had dinner here Sunday night during the Toronto Int'l Film Festival - it was not very busy but the dining room was semi-full. We were waiting for friends to arrive and service was attentive to the point of being obsequious. When our party finally assembled, our primary server could not be more lovely and helpful yet it took close to an hour to get our first course seafood plateau, then half of our order never showed up and seemed to have been totally forgotten. No explanation or apology. The food we did have was very good however they staff needs to get it together a bit.

    Energy and noise levels were high so don't plan for a quiet evening in a romantic corner. Filled with urban professionals, the restaurant was a little intimidating but the staff was welcoming and warm. The buzz made it easy to ask questions about how to order and what to order knowing no one else could hear you. You must love seafood to eat here. Everything we ordered was delicious and I would definitely recommend the bay platter for two to share with some side orders as the platter is strictly seafood but lots of it! We had a wonderful time.

    We had dinner here with clients and the service was outstanding. The menu was unusual so we asked for assistance and were not disappointed. We chose several dishes to share which gave us the opportunity to sample dishes we may not otherwise have chosen. They were all delicious. I would certainly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.

    Fantastic spot. The food was excellent, but it's the service that was bar none! When you have the right service it really makes an evening. Despite having the best fried chicken I've ever had, I still can't get over how awesome the service was...and I'm a foodie! Very well priced, we will be going again but likely with a group so that we can be the people who introduced our friends to their favorite new place.

    Having been to The Chase and found it to be bloated, pretentious and not very good, I was eager to try out its more casual, raw bar-like little sister, The Chase Fish and Oyster. The PEI oysters were amazingly good and the shrimp and avocado roll and the lobster roll were excellent. The problem is the price. Lunch for two, with two glasses of wine, came to $150, tax and tip included. That is just silly. So, as good as it was, I will not go back and will not suggest it to anyone but the wealthiest of my circle. Too bad. Service was friendly and attentive as well.

    Food was Okay, nothing exceptional based on other restaurants we've been to in the city. However, the service was horrible for the type of restaurant and price point. Our waiter was definitely not customer focused and annoyed anytime we asked him a question or for any type of service. Not acceptable and quite frankly shouldn't be a waiter at a nice restaurant. Maybe acceptable for fast food place. Overall, very disappointed given the reviews and ratings I had read. Maybe we'll try it again and our waiter will be much more pleasant.

    Another great evening at The Chase Fish & Oyster. This is the main floor, less expensive version of the sister restaurant on the 5th Floor. The service is as good as upstairs. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The sommelier, Heather, is wonderful and has fantastic recommendations. The food was as good as ever... the avocado shrimp roll was amazing and was the albacore tuna. The Big Eye Tuna Nachos is really good. The chowder is not you usual chowder so make sure you know what you are getting. The Halibut is fantastic, the Artic Char with roasted cauliflower is excellent as it the Shrimp Gnocchi. The strawberry cheesecake sundae is full of flavor and texture.

    Oyster selection, presentation and accompaniments were good. However, for a Fish restaurant they should learn how to cook fish. Fish was overcooked, but sides were done nice. I was charged full pop ($27) for gnocchi for a 2 year old. It's normally done with shrimp in a sauce and I asked for plain gnocchi, half portion with just butter and parm. Should not have been charge the full amount. Probably won't go back, as there are many other places to go just for Oysters.

    The ahi tuna was amazing, as well as the oysters. The waitress' suggestion was so good - PEI's Colville Bay I think. We had the Yonge platter which came with the tuna, oysters, clams, and shrimp - everything was fresh and presentation was great. We ordered mainly seafood but also had a chance to try the ribeye - soft and tender and came with a nice egg on top and the salad was just delicious. Pretty pricey but I would definitely come back for special occasions! I highly recommended this place to all my friends.

    The food was quite good, but for the price wasn't plentiful. We ordered the Bay seafood platter for $110, and it didn't really knock or socks off. Our server was mostly absent and snarky when present, plus the music approached dance club volumes, so on the balance the experience was not worth what we paid.
