All four of us love our meals. I had the fried chicken sandwich and it was amazing and the french fries had the best seasoning I’ve had in a long time. I also appreciated that they moved us from our original request to be on the patio to being indoors as it was 42° with the humidity.

About the restaurant
The Chase is our passion for casual elegance. Our rooftop restaurant highlights what we love most about upscale dining, and presents it in a modest, welcoming and thoughtful way. Our ongoing chase for the finest ingredients from around the world coupled with simple and uncomplicated flavours is the foundation for our culinary philosophy. Using refined techniques from Italian and French cuisines we formed a menu that can be best described as Contemporary North American. It celebrates the beauty of simplicity and keep you craving more. The service is detailed and technical, but as comfortable as being at home. The room is
sophisticated, but refreshingly approachable and unpretentious.
