Prime Seafood Palace is a contemporary restaurant inspired by Matty Matheson's East Cost roots and love for architecture. Conceptualized as a light-filled cathedral, lining an otherwise inconspicuous brick-clad building that blends into Toronto's urban fabric. The restaurant's sourcing and menu demonstrate an intentional manner that elevates the traditional steakhouse concept.

    We were graced with a really rude standoffish server. She def had an attitude. She didnt really help with the menu and kept cutting us off to attend to other tables. She said the plates were sharable so we got a 20oz steak and she decided to throw shade by saying we are just having a small dinner. At that point i kind of lost my appetite. We asked another server if the food we ordered was ok. And inquired about the meat temp- which i found odd that our server didnt care to ask- when we asked her, she said its med rare by default and walked away. I got anxiety as i decided to share a steak with my hubby but we both like different temps. Anyways i can go on forever about how incredibly horrible dinner was for is. I def wont come back or recommend. I will stick to harbour 60. Btw The music was too loud. I would say food was okay. The chocolate cake was very thick and dry. However/ Everyone else other than our server was really nice and attentive. Sadly after all this i really didint cafe for the nice decor or the nice washroom.

    This was our second time. The first time was when it first opened. Then the Vibe was cool, young and hip and exciting. The first visit we focused on the seafood and we’re in love with the place. This trip was a a different vibe and experience. Quite frankly, The clientele sucked. We were seated between an obnoxious drunk junior level lawyer trying to one up everyone at the table. We get it, you lived in London for a few years and your dad know the coach of the islanders. The table on the other side was a plastic surgery mannequin whose date arrived an hour late then spent the entire meal complaining about the fact that the really kind server told them they only had a 2 hour seating. He also complained to the manager and was pretty rude to the server telling her to pick what he should eat and if he doesn’t like it he’ll never come back. I get it though, they can’t control who visits. The food was hit or miss. Like I said, first time there was a home run on all levels. Thai time not so much. The sea urchin toast was a weird size. Too big for finger food, but do I use a knife and fork? It was good. Not $100 good. The smoked trout on the buttermilk waffle was amazing. Fantastic. The palace bacon as well. The bone-in Striploin was run of the mill. Nothing special at all, if even a bit too charred. The smoked carrot tart was a total nothing burger, while we fought over who go to finish the cabbage schnitzel. We were really excited to have the key lime pie again, as it was a favourite last time. It was served with a steak knife because the crust was so hard a fork wouldn’t go through it…. Lastly our server was great and the FOH staff is and was last time very professional. Was it worth over $700 after tax and tip? No. Sadly I think our second trip to PSP will be out last.

    This meal was phenomenal, from the attentiveness of staff to the quality of the minor details, this meal was one to remember. Additionally, I highly recommend the shrimp, bread and carrot tart, they were all highlights of the meal.

    A refined take on a steakhouse with elevated seafood and vegetable dishes. Food is delicious and visually appealing, plated without a hint of pretentiousness, but still playful at times. Would have liked to see the beer list include more local independent breweries. Aside from that, the drinks list has well curated options for everyone. Service is exceptional. Staff know the menu inside and out. You can trust them to make your experience seamless and satisfying.

    Overall it’s a nice restaurant, a bit overprice for what it is. We ordered 3 apps, 2 that included bread, then prime rib, potatoes, & yorkshire pudding for main. I thought it’s more than enough for 2 people, but our server told us we are on the lighter side, and we should get 1 or 2 more app…so we added 1 more app. We end up being extremely full, and didn’t even have room to order dessert. Also I think they forgot it’s a birthday, didn’t ask or offer anything. Anyhow we didn’t have room for anything else.

    We had been waiting to come here for months and it definitely lived up to the hype! The food was mouth watering, still thinking about it.. There was no 'want' for anything, the service was quick and efficient and you could really tell that everyone on staff was working as a team. My partner doesn't even like red wine but the sommelier was so helpful and paired our dishes with a beautiful bottle of red that we both absolutely loved. It's on the pricey side for sure but it makes sense with all the ingredients, ambience, service etc etc., more than worth it. We'll definitely be back with more friends and family to try more things!

    Everything was amazing! Particularly the service, from booking the reservation (which someone from the restaurant had contacted me to change since the restaurant was actually closed on that date) to grabbing our coats as we left the restaurant, everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. The food, outstanding, which was no surprise! I heard the owner comes around once in awhile, and I actually brought a copy of his cookbook hoping to get an autograph. We will definitely be dining there again, and I’ve recommended everyone I know to do the same!

    Fantastic meal experience. Great attentive and polite staff. Unusually friendly for a restaurant of this level. We loved the food and the little bonuses we got along the way (including a kitchen tour and sip of some Japanese whiskey). Our server Aeron was amazing. Wonderful warm person who make our experience what it was. Many thanks to her.

    The meal was outstanding start to finish. The wine selection was outstanding and the food was very thoughtful and creative. I have had few dining experiences that capture my attention start to finish, this was one of them. Everything was a 10/10. I can't wait to return to Seafood Palace. Hannah, Dylan, and Jing were outstanding. Incredible service, all expectations for satisfying any need were far exceeded by this FOH group. Chef Coulson and the incredible team in the kitchen are making some outstanding food. Hands down one of the best tables in Toronto, and by far my favorite.

    The food was very good -- loved the urchin towers, the lobster pasta, the bread service, steak tartare, and the halibut with trout roe (it's a beautiful dish). Of the vegetables we had, the carrot was my favourite (rutabaga was good, the kale salad and the palace potatoes were fine but maybe my least favourite). The sommelier was lovely and helpful. The service in general was very good, though I was disappointed that they removed some side dishes from the table before they were done. Overall it was a good experience. It's a beautiful space and obviously a labour of love. The one shortcoming is the cost. I understand they have multiple major costs to cover -- rent, many employees, and their ingredients, among other things. Unfortunately it makes the restaurant completely inaccessible to a lot of people. I thought my group and I (4 total) were being relatively modest with our ordering (no steak or caviar -- though it would have been nice!), and our bill still came to well over $800. Definitely the most expensive meal I've ever had, but I wouldn't say it was the best. I hope in time they'll figure out a way to make coming back possible! Would be cool if they added a bunch of lower cost wines to the list or lowered their corking fee. I imagine they'd have a lot more return customers that way :)

    Steak tartar was overtly done by the Dijon mustard, couldn’t taste the steak. Palace sauce nothing special . Palace potato is good Crab cocktail , I was expecting to have a hint of Chinese wine in it to enhance to crab meat but end up taste like Thai Tom yum soup .

    Great place. Bread service was surprisingly delicious. The humbolt squid had to be my favorite starter. Squid and cheese sounded weird but it ended up pairing perfectly. Had the prime rib palace cut and fluke with some sides as the mains. All amazing. Server suggested the creamed greens to go with our mains and it was a great choice. Service was attentive and knowledgeable without being intrusive, same for the sommelier who helped us with choosing a glass to pair with the mains. Interior is beautiful, the classic rock soundtrack honestly went great with the food which was a pairing in and of itself haha. Don’t even get me started on the washroom too, just bonkers. Pricey, but that’s to be expected. Will absolutely return for a special occasion.
