very good seafood and the service is excellent. Definitely not hip, more old school, but
flavours of the fish are brought out in the dishes.

Seafood was excellent. Tuna tartare was delicious. We arrived for lunch to an empty restaurant which was nice as it felt like a private experience. The waitstaff were friendly, helpful and courteous. We enjoyed our experience and will return for tapas - they all sounded delicious.

I visited after several years. Both the food and service are outstanding. Definitely among the top 5 fish serving restaurants in TO and may be in Canada.

Food was way too salty. Service was very plain, they never even came by to check up on our food. They mixed up order for all 3 app / main / desserts. Server barely interested in us. You can obviously tell the service quality difference between summerlicious vs regular guests.

The food was absolutely delicious and the service was exceptional. The experience started from the greeting at the door and the whole evening I felt like a valued customer. The restaurant was pretty busy, but there was no wait time for the food! The design of the restaurant: check the paintings on the wall- it’s a trip to a gallery with a dinner. A bonus! The food: a duck is my personal favourite! I tried it in different countries, definitely the Portuguese style is very special. It melts in your mouth. The cleanness: it is spotless. The staff: very professional. I was there for a special occasion but I can definitely see a business meeting happening there. You can have a conversation, there is no loud music. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

As always, an outstanding dining experience. Twice a year, I bring my friends to this restaurant, and they always leave very satisfied and continue to return on their own. The food quality is always consistent and the wine pairings well selected.

Summerlicious was a remarkable bargain. One of the best fish meals I’ve ever had at a price so low as to be inexplicable.

Booked lonely day prior for our wedding anniversary and we had a great meal. We were located right by the entrance and think if further back might have had better ambience.

We loved the overall experience. While I'm not a great fan of fish, and this is the specialty of your restaurant, I enjoyed the salmon. We did the Summerlicious menu and found that there were lots of options for all three stages. WE also liked the upscale nature of the restaurant and the location- while a bit of a journey to get there, it was a worthwhile one. Bravo!

For the price paid, the portion is small. The quality is fine, but not as good as I have expected. Maybe I was expecting too much from such a big name.

I confirmed my reservation with Open Table but the restaurant could not find it. Servers were not as courteous as expected. They under cooked our two fish plate. They apologized but changed one plate to a much smaller piece. The cooking was good but overall so so.

Went for Summerlicious. Small portions. Simple but tasty food. Classic but a bit outdated decor. Almost rude staff, below average service. Overall value ok for summerlicious but wouldn’t go back and pay full price for the regular menu.

Food was honestly not great for the value. The sardines seemed to be canned. Was not fresh at all. There was a general lack of savour from the meat. The service was not the best either. As someone who regular goes for fine dining this was definitely a disappointment.

Having been coming for years during Winter & Summerlicious events. This time we found our outing very disappointing as food portions seem to be getting smaller and price increasing. Quality of food served did not taste as well as in previous outings. Ordered 1 drink which seemed quite watered down as glass was complete full of ice and difficult to taste any liquor in it.

I and my friend visited this beautiful small restaurant for Summerlicious. Their selection was very good and staff very professional/accommodating. We went with their Seabass and Grouper and they didn't disappoint. the food display was also spectacular. Would love to come back for a special occasion.

The Summerlicious menu was extensive. Good selection of appetizers and entrees. I had the sea bass. One friend had the grilled skate and the other grouper and shrimp risotto. We shared the food and all tasted amazing. Would give an overall score of 5 if the service was faster.

This place is amazing. Super cozy and the service is excellent. Went here for summerlicious and wanted to try something different so I had the ceviche to start. It was so fresh and light and all of the portions were just right. For my main I had the duck which was super tender. The molotof for dessert was nice and airy. The servers were amazing, very attentive. I would definitely come back! A quality restaurant for sure.
