Very pleasant place bit overpriced compared to its rivals and less tasty but excellent service and ambiance did make up for it.

The service was outstanding - we visited during winterlicious. The host and waiter were very friendly. We had the squid and beet appetizer, the cod and mushroom gnocchi mains and the white chocolate citrus and choc. cherry tart dessert. The cod and gnocchi were outstanding.

Had an amazing meal at Chiado during Winterlicious. Service was spectacular and they even gave us glasses of Duoro port wine to celebrate our anniversary. The squid and lamb were standout dishes and were very tender.

Forgot about my wife’s berry allergy after discussing 3 minutes prior and brought a dish with a berry sauce. Server inattentive over the course of the night.

Host was great and acknowledged that we listed my wife has a berry allergy. This just fell through the cracks with remainder of staff

Did not acknowledge our anniversary, despite listing that we selected the restaurant specifically for it.

We have been to Chiado many times and have always enjoyed the food. Chiado is certainly one of the best restaurants in Toronto. Service is impeccable and their wine selection focuses on Portuguese wines.

Chiado offers every traditional customer service - reserved and professional. They do not overly hype up customers, rather stay professional being attentive, at the same time giving customers their space. Their food was amazing although it was winterlicious. Lots of restaurants’ qualities degrade for winterliciois but Chiado was not disappointing at all - in fact made me want to come back for their regular dinner.

Celebrated our 46 Wedding Anniversary.
We were seated in the second dining room which was somewhat quieter. The service was excellent. The food presentation was beautiful. We enjoyed the beat salad and scallop starters. The salmon and gnocchi and desserts.
Everything was delicious.
We had a wonderful evening.
Only regret was I would have liked to try the cod fish but they had sold out.
We will definitely return.

If you wanted to be treated like a second class citizen and be served cold food during Winterlicious, then sure, go for it. Both the server and manager of the restaurant were beyond rude. We came here for the cod which we tried during non-Winterlicious and upon being seated, our server told us it was sold out (at 1:30pm on the first day of Winterlicious) and as we replied with “oh no! That’s what we came here for” he walked away mid-sentence. We asked to speak to the manager as we drove an hour and purposely brought our parents here for a special occasion and surprisingly, the manager was even more rude than the server. We asked if we can speak in private as we have a surprised planned for my parents and the manager said “if you have something to say, say it here.” The shrimp bisque was cold and disappointing. The squid tasted like burned charcoal. Dessert was underwhelming. Chiado, if you’re going to serve such low quality food and have your staff treat guests with so much attitude, don’t bother with Winterlicious because not only will we NEVER be back during the regular season, but we will warn our foodie friend network to stay away from your subpar restaurant with rude staff! NEVER AGAIN!!!!

A lovely, intimate restaurant with superior service There is a wide selection of fresh fish and seafood. Try the grilled octopus and the grouper fillet and round your dinner out with the chocolate mousse. The wine selection is amazing. We will be back to work out way through the menu.

Overall disappointing experience. Food was uninspired, dramatically over-seasoned and overcooked (fish was hard and dry). Main portions were ample, but not worth the calories. Id pass and try others - this is a highly overrated spot in my opinion. Service was friendly but slow and inattentive and we left disappointed in our experience.
