Wait staff was perfect from start to finish. Fresh fish choices were great as was the taste and flavors Highly recommend 👍.
Highly recommended! We were told it is much busier for dinner...we went at lunch and it was empty. Had a wonderful meal
I was fortunate to get a table for five to celebrate mother's day. My mother is elderly and we were seated in a back corner that permitted everyone to participate and hear the conversation. The fish is fresh and all was cooked to perfection. I pride myself on my ability to cook salmon, but have to go to school on Chiado. Their salmon was perfectly prepared, as were their sardines, octopus, skate, belt fish, quail and grouper.
Loved the food and ambient
We ended up there on a fluke at the last minute. I ‘m so glad we did. Everything was done with care. We were treated like their best customer. The food was perfect. Wine amazing. We were given everything quality Portuguese - bread, wine, olive oil, cheese, and we love fresh fish. I did not mind that it was pricey. It was worth it. They will be seeing me again!
O Marvelous food, superb service, an exceptional restaurant.
This restaurant is one of the best, in Toronto, that I have had the pleasure to experience.
It is a bit expensive but worth every penny. I highly recommend it for very special occasions.
Service was amazing from the moment we stepped in the restaurant till we left; very polite and attentive. My husband had rack of lamb, it was just perfectly done, me and my guest had fish, her was a little salty, mine was a little over cooked but still very good. Very mature environment and relaxing. Price was at the higher end but I didn’t mind for the experience. I will definitely recommend to friends.
Excellent food and service as it has been for twenty-five years.
Still one of the very best in the city!
First time for the four of us but certainly wont be the last time. The selection and quality of fish was outstanding. Service was friendly and informative especially when it came to the Portuguese wine list. We told our waiter what our wine preferences were and he picked out a couple of wonderful bottles. We are now an experience richer.
Presentation of the food was excellent and the different courses came out perfectly timed.
All in all, we were very happy to leave our money behind.
A classic restaurant with very high-end Portuguese food. Fresh fish flown in from Portugal. Top-notch service from people for whom serving is a career. And amazing desserts - be sure to leave yourself room!
Amazing food !
The seafood at Chiado was excellent. Highly recommended if you have a large limit on your CC.
Fue una gran experiencia culinaria y de servicio
This was my second time at Chiado and I have to say, this last experience was less impressive then my first. My husband, who prefers meat to fish/seafood, ordered the steak...medium. What arrived was a well done steak that was far from what he expected as far as quality. Both he and my friend's husband ordered the same dessert (meringue based) that was huge and both left their desserts basically the way they arrived. The desserts were tasteless (their words, not mine) and even after witnessing the plates being taken away barely touched, the waiter had nothing to say. I think the next time I am craving seafood, I will venture elsewhere.
Excellent service. Staff knew everything about the menu. Not too noisy, interesting artwork. My only criticism was the grilled octopus was a little over done. Everything else, the monkfish and the snapper were excellent. No room for dessert , Maybe next time.
A bit disappointed that you forgot that it was my partner’s birthday. Also after we finished the sparkling water no more water was brought to our table.
Couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating to my 95 year old mother! Thank you!
I went for lunch with my husband on a Thursday. They were very friendly and the service was excellent.
The food is nicely presented and very tasty. I recommend the fish of the day.
The wine was great too.
Prices are very reasonable.
We will definitely come back
Great service! Amazing food. Very happy to be here again.
Reliable place. Food quality is very good. recoomend for a good seafood or fish dinner.
I was visiting from the west and found this restaurant online before I got to Toronto. The reviews and website looked wonderful. It was everything I expected. Maybe even a bit more. Well done.
An excellent long lunch over conversation with out of town friends. Exquisite food. The four of us ordered 3 appetizers each, well matched with wines that we were offered samples of to help with our preferences. My favourite lobster and shrimp bisque in town, as are the baked goat cheese and eggplant, and the grilled octopus appetizers. Consistent professional and courteous service. Perfect ambience for conversation. Can’t wait to return soon.
Great food and service in warm surroundings. We enjoyed our visit. Portions we're just the right size if you have appetizers and desserts otherwise the main course may seem a bit small. The wine selection is perfect and we splurged on two bottles of Douro. All in all a good experience we will go again.
the best experience when it comes to seafood and what service
I and my family felt very warmly welcomed and fed like kings
and we do go to all 4-star restaurants.
thank you, Chiado and the team
The menu is not what you expect from a traditional Portuguese restaurant so I wouldn't consider this a traditional restaurant. To me it was a spin on Portuguese gastronomy but on higher-end scale. Missing is the Mariscada, Caldo Verde, churrasco, carne Alantejana. The dishes each of us ordered were all very well prepared, delicious and generous portions. The waiter staff were all very nice and professional. They took their time explaining how the food was to be prepared and made recommendations. They frequently checked on us and were genuinely interested in making sure we were having a good time. Party of 3, appetizers, soup, main dish and bottle of wine cost $250 Canadian. Not the cheapest meal but again well worth the price given the quality of the food, service and ambiance. Well done Chiado!
Stumbled onto this restaurant quite by chance. Was looking for something that was close to Mirvish...which it’s not! That being said thought reviews looked good make and early reservation and then Uber to the theatre. So glad I made that decision.
What a lovely experience and impeccable service. Food was AMAZING. Such a lovely evening out. Can’t wait to return. Everyone participated in making the evening memorable and perfect. Thank you Sylvia
Our appetizers were very good (octopus, grilled sardines) and the wine recommendation also excellent. However, my dinner was the dry soup, which was oddly goupy and had very little seafood. The two clams were nice and the one big shrimp overcooked. Monkfish was in there, but hard to find. It definitely was not dry; instead, rich and creamy and dense. In the end, it made me feel sick the whole next day. My husband too, who finished it for me. His cod entree was nice though.
Fantastic Food and fantastic waiters.
Great restaurant, it ticked all the boxes and the seafood was to die for! My wife and I were in Toronto for a child free break and decided on this place for our main meal out and it didn’t disappoint. My wife being of Portuguese / Madeiran heritage was always going to be a hard one to please, but pleased she was. The food was simply delicious, the front of house staff knowledgable and the local Madeiran / Portuguese fish (inc. Espada or Scabbard fish) a nice touch. We would return in a heartbeat and are already planning a return visit to Toronto and Chiado is very much on the “must do” list.
Everything about this restaurant is wonderful. It's expensive but well worth it.
Fabulous restaurant. Highly recommend, best seafood restaurant we have been to in Toronto.
Excellent from start to end. Food was amazing
Very classy service, presentation and setting.
White linen tablecloth and napkins.
$40-$45 main dishes, appetizers $10-$20, so plan on spending over $200 without a bottle of wine or desserts.
Quality but expensive. Don't think it is worthwhile.
Great fresh fish options, classic Portuguese style. 5 stars
