Food great! The service was not heat. We felt rushed and not at ease.
We had trouble ordering a wine and they were not happy with us.

We were there on a very slow night so service was very attentive. Food was very good. Tried one of the specialty fish dishes, skate, and it was prepared with care. Will go back for sure if we happen to be in Toronto again.

It was our first time at Chiabo. We got the reference from a work colleague of mine. It was truly an enjoyable evening for my family. Everyone enjoyed their meal. My son declared it was the best meal he ever had. He had the Scallops appetizer and the monkfish. Still talking about a few days later.

We are not from Toronto but we will certainly want to go back to Chiabo next time we are there. Thanks for an amazing dining experience. Cheers Robert

Service was superb, food was delicious and appropriate amount, the background music was Fado but low so you could have a conversation, art work was impressive.

I have known Chiado for more than 10 years; it never fails us. The quality of food has always been consistently good. The service is top-notch. I love its ambience. I brought my 8-year-old with me and he is a real gourmet: he loved the lobster bisque and the rack of lamb. All goes without saying, the dessert was best. We will be back again very soon.

We couldn't have chosen a better restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was our first visit to Chiado and we plan to revisit often. Most impressed by the delicious seafood, and the impeccable service. A great place to relax. The European ambiance takes you away from the routine of any day!

Great food, we had grouper and a seafood platter for appetizers which included Lobster, Octopus & Shrimp in a citrus, tarragon aioli. The appetizers were excellent and were well cooked and had just the right amount of seasoning. The grouper was nice and thick and had a lot of seasoning which I thought really added to the flavor. We also had monkfish which was considered okay. The ambiance was great and we would definitely recommend this place!

The food and service were spectacular. The steak and bisque were done perfectly with no additional seasoning required. The tell of true perfection in haute cuisine.
Many thanks, it was my wife’s birthday and she was very pleased.

You walk into a comfortable "old world" style restaurant with tables nicely spaced and a low level of ambient noise. We had great service. Our waiter recommended a lovely wine that fit our description of what we liked perfectly. The asparagus and sweet pea soup was delicious as was the arugula salad. We tried two different kinds of fish. Each came with a well matched seasoning/sauce and the vegetables the fish rested on had a nice crunch to them. The kitchen was responsive to special requests.

This was our first time at Chiado and we were very impressed. The food was outstanding and probably the best seafood we have every had. We started with an Arugula Salad then had the Grouper as our main entrees land it was incredible.
