Contemporary American
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.

First time at Chase didn’t know what to expect. No question food was great. It was really awkward when arrived, we were pointed to the elevator by the greeter. and tried to find the elevator’s button to push catch the elevator going up of course we missed it(felt like i just could not find damm button)and spent 5 -6 minutes (felt like) waiting.

Great food. Fantastic server. I let them know it was my wife's birthday and they welcomed us with a "Happy Birthday" and gave her a complimentary dessert. A nice touch!

Waited 30 minutes past our reservation time. Restaurant wasn’t that crowded. Prices were extreme (food and wine). Eat out a lot downtown Toronto and found their pricing out of line for the experience and quality.

The Chase is one of the best places for fish downtown I I belive from my experience. The service tonight wasn't amazing overall but everyone was friendly and the food was tasty. Look forward to coming back in the summer for drinks on the patio.

Wonderful from start to finish! Had a friendly engagement with a manager and bus boy in the elevator up. The bus boy stopped by our table a couple more times that night for some friendly conversation and to make a few jokes. He was a nice touch given that most of the other diners looked a bit stiff. Our server was friendly and made great suggestions! A little more pricey then what we anticipated but we had a really great time!

From the second we walked in, we were impressed with The Chase. The ambiance is fantastic, exuding a sophisticated, modern elegance. We enjoyed delicious and inventive cocktails before dinner, and a fantastic wine selection with our meal. The food is something special. We were impressed not only with the taste of the food, but also how well it was cooked and the beautiful presentation. We split the burrata, the venison, and the cauliflower & truffle. We then had that the Lime for dessert. Everything was amazing. The burrata was creamy, light, and delicious. The venison was cooked perfectly, with excellent accompaniments, and the kitchen split it into two plates for us to enjoy. The Lime dessert was a wonderfully light end to an amazing meal. The lime was tart, the meringue was fluffy and not too sweet, and the toasted coconut was very subtle. I would honestly say this was one of the best meals I've ever had.

The Chase is always reliably lovely. Prices are steep, but quality is excellent. If you are sitting in the walkway between the bar and the dining room it can be a little loud, but the atmosphere is generally luxe.

Table wasn’t as expected- we were seated across from the kitchen. The food took forever to come. The seafood pan roast was minimally warm- the first bite, the oyster was actually cold. Waiter wasn’t knowledgeable and made us feel rushed. Taking the plate as soon as we finished the last bite, and asking my fiancé if she wanted the bill when I left for the washroom for a single minute, and saying he wasn’t sure if the restaurant accepts Amex. Personally feel there are better restaurants at the same price that one can enjoy for a sophisticated night out.

Everything was great. The only thing upsetting was when the wine we ordered was out of stock. The wine list wasn’t marked as such and an attempt was made at selling us a higher priced wine on the list, making it look like a bait and switch. When I made it clear that this approach wasn’t acceptable, the wine was offered at the same price as what was ordered which is what should have been done in the first place.

I was downtown for a conference and thought we’d try out this restaurant . We ordered the small seafood platter which cost $75. It came in a small platter with only 4 oysters, 2 crab claws, 2 shrimps, 2 Ahi tuna and 2 snapper slices. We have been to many of the top restaurants in TO and this platter is way overpriced compared to one we had at Buca Yorkville.
The beef tartare was average. We ordered another shrimp cocktail which was also average; $28 for 4 medium shrimps. My wife had the Arctic Char which was nicely done. I had the Pan Roast which is just half a lobster with mussels and tiny little shrimps and some pieces of fish.
This was bland if not for the soupy sauce that they put in after. We had a bottle of Ramsay 2016 Cab which cost $105. I later did a search on Wine Search and it cost $18.
The markup is ridiculously high. Most high end restaurants
Have a markup of 3 to 4 times. This is almost 6 times.
The best part of the evening is the service. I think this restaurant is too much hype and no substance. The price is excessive compared to most fine dining restaurants.
I think Blu, Buca and Cafe Boulud are better in terms of food and value. We will not go back.

Our starter and mains arrived cold - while our sides were hot. The server was overwhelmed with more tables than it seemed she could handle, so was always rushing off. Several times we had to call after her to add items to our order or ask her for something. The wine selection was excellent - it would be nice to see an optional Vegan/Vegetarian menu - such as many downtown restaurants now offer. The food was beautifully plated, but the lackluster service was disappointing as compared to other high end restaurants in the downtown core - would like to see the service standard raised to the same level as Kasa Moto or Planta.
