This was me second time here and it is incredible food! We had the tuna tacos and the oysters to start. In addition we thoroughly enjoyed the lobster mac n cheese and the "goat cheese" (cashews) with rhubarb compote. Really really excellent flavors!!

First time there and we walked into a bingo night and it honestly turned our night around. We had so much fun. I’ve been to over 55 restaurants in Toronto and this is in my top 5. Definitely going back and bringing more guests this time!

Once a month, the restaurant hosts a Music Bingo night. What fun! DJ was fabulous! Food was fabulous. I would recommend the Tuna Nachos and from the raw bar, the Yonge Platter. Great way to spend a Friday night with a group of friends. It gets lively, that is for sure!

The table was in front and very close to the stairs leading to the underground level and next to the bar. It felt like we weren't part of the restaurant and the table was an afterthought. I extended my arm out while talking and smacked an employee and a server bumped into the side of my body while I was sitting.
Awkward! The dessert options were disappointing, and my lime tart too sweet, the crust too thick. The oysters and shrimp were delicious, as was the chowder.

Great restaurant. The food and service are very good. We got our table on time, did not have to wait for food for a long time. Perfectly cooked starters and entrees. Good size of entrees, no need to order sides.
I recommend to order seafood dishes. This is the main specialty of this place.

We had a family dinner for my Mom's 69th birthday. It was extra special because we knew it would be the last time that we were all together as a family. I received great service from the moment I called to make the reservation. I requested a dish not on their menu & they made it special for my Mom. Everything we ordered was fabulous - sumptuous thermidor with lemon risotto, perfectly flavored paella, and and a showstopper whole crispy snapper. We also had the kale & brussel sprouts Caesar & maple roasted broccoli - must have choices for sides. We shared 3 desserts and couldn’t come to a decision on which was best - but 50% of us thought it was the sticky toffee pudding with a hint of ginger, burnt caramel & pecans. Don’t think twice - eat at CFO. And a heartfelt thank you to Tarek, the Chef, Harry and the rest of the staff for their outstanding service and for making this occasion more special than I could’ve hoped.

Food was very good, notwithstanding the poorly sucked oysters, and service could be improved. It was ridiculously expensive for what we got but I'd do it again.

To put simply the food was gross.. I ordered the beef and it was extremely oily. I never send things back but this was not edible. So I switched it for the halibut and that was not very good either, also oily. So I basically didn’t eat dinner. I also indicated and confirmed 3 times with them prior to getting there that it was a birthday dinner (we ordered dessert that should have had a birthday message on it). But they still forgot. They only realized later after I had paid the bill, so they brought out fried dough balls with a happy birthday cookie.

The place is lovely, great that they have valet although I wish they would have mentioned how much the valet service is!
Some of the food was a little too salty which is something I've read in other reviews, so many tell the chef.
The service was OUTSTANDING, all of our waiters were incredible.
The grilled seafood place was unbelievable, and the oyster platters were very fresh. Would love to come again.

To start, the atmosphere was nice and greeting was pleasant by hostess. Appetizer - clam chowder was excellent! Main course - grilled seafood plate was great. 1 lb Lobster meal was good but was ruined by the lobster being under cooked. They recooked the lobster but still the smell of the undercooked lobster left a bad impression. The drinks were good and service was good by waitress. Overall, we had a mixed experience. The food was good and staff was friendly, but the mistake by the chef with under cooking the lobster outweighed the rest of the experience. No compensation was made by management for this mistake... not sure if we will come back. This was our second visit here out of 3 visits to Toronto. Will probably be our last.

We reserved a table for a nice night out. When we arrived there were no tables available so we were seated at the bar (which is cold and drafty as it’s right in front of the door which is constantly open as people are arriving for 2 restaurants). We decided to leave and go to John and Sons.

We were there on a Saturday night for dinner and it was not busy, which did make me wonder why we were put into the table at the very back instead of a window. However, the waitress was attentive and the food was good.

We ate here a year ago and it was better then. Oysters were very good. My dinner (grilled seafood) was cold. I sent it back and they put it on a piping hot plate which barely made it warm. The service was slow. This is probably because they screwed up somehow on my food. The waiter was a bit unprofessional. He was certainly nice enough, but his tone was a bit too lax as we asked him questions about the menu. For $400 it should have been superb. I’m not generally too picky, but as I said, for that price, it should have been better.

Went there with the girlfriend on Valentines Day.

Food was sparse and decent at best. We started with a total of 6 oysters, followed by the caviar and the octopus carpaccio, which honestly was probably the highlight of the night. For mains, we shared the scallops and grits, which had two pieces of mediocre pork belly.

Service was all over the place, nobody came to get us while we were waiting for a table to open up, the wine glasses given to us were dirty, waiter came by with wrong order twice...they were nice and apologetic about it, but they were very disorganized the whole night.

Would not go again.

Valentine’s Day dinner.
Booked in advanced to get the 7:00 slot, but still ended up waiting for almost an hour.
Sat down to realized that they were only serving the special limited menu with no price tag.
We still ordered the dinner set with addition to the Yonge platter.
The platter was excellent, the set dinner portion was ok. Service was great though. Will probably come back again on a normal night.

The Chase Fish & Oyster is at the top of my list as the best restaurant for fish and seafood near the theaters. The elegance of the dining room, their brussel & kale cesar, warm biscuits or their wine selection would win favours from anyone who going eating is a lot more than just eating. Its a delectable overall experience.

Everything great - especially the oysters. The only downside is the value-for-money aspect. It is way more expensive than Rodney’s or Zee Grill, and although the decor and atmosphere are more upscale, we have lingering doubts.

It was super amazing! The service was so friendly and happy, there were big windows that let a lot of light into the restaurant so the ambiance was amazing! Since it is Winterlicious, we tried the price-fixe menu and it was delicious! Portions were so generous for the price of $33, everything was served hot and was extremely delicious! Definitely worth a try, would love to have their a la carte!
