We celebrated our daughter's birthday with a visit to Beyond Monet and capped it off with a delightful meal at The Shore Club. All were happy with our experience. Interesting menu and food well prepared and presented.

The Shore, one of our favs. Typically we go on our anniversary. Service is excellent. Drinks are excellent. However this time our steak was very over done. We are medium rare eaters but this was more medium well. We have never had a bad meal here but this did turn us off. But, we’ll be back again next year.

The Shore Club is most definitely one of the better seafood/steakhouse restaurants in Toronto. My partner and I got the fresh oysters, fingerlings, and shrimp cocktail. Despite our reservation being at 9:30 and the kitchen closing at 10:15, our food arrived relatively fast. Additionally, despite our reservation being so close to closing time, the fact that we were there so late at night, and the only diners virtually there; the staff were incredibly kind and helpful, had a lot of healthy conversations and even spoke to us about what they would recommend from the menu. Due to covid restrictions, I most likely would not recommend booking the 9:30 time to people who are picky/people who like to eat a lot at resteraunts because sitting down at 9:30 and having to say everything you want for final call can be stressful and can take away from the 'romantic atmosphere'. I would most definitely like to dine here again :)

Great food and service. The cook on the meat was spot on. We had both lamb and beef. We started with fresh seafood that was also expertly prepared. All in all, an excellent night out.

we had the seafood platter as appetizer. Then followed with steak.

the seafood had gone bad. wasnt sure if it was the oyster. My son shortly after having the appetizer already felt his stomach rumble & discomfort. Before our main meal arrived, he was already in the bathroom with a stomach diahrrea. As for myself, my stomach didnt rumble until we got home from our meal. and the same result... stomach was not well. As for my other son, he didnt have any stomach issues. Instead , the day after he broke up in rashes & hives. We havent had such an awful dining experience.... Truly not happy!

It was my first time at Shore Club yesterday and unfortunately I did not have a good experience with the oysters. I've had oysters at other restaurants and had fine experiences prior to my visit. However, after eating only 3 oysters, I immediately got sick. I ran back and forth to the washroom during my stay and had finally ordered a hot water to calm my stomach. Perhaps I may have eaten a bad oyster, but it was a very unpleasant experience. Due to my colleague not experiencing the same issue, I hadn't had the chance to notify my server. Overall, I don't think I will be returning to order the same dish. I may return to try other dishes on the menu, but I don't think it will be for some time.

The service was incredible. I expected more from my main dish however. I ordered the bone-in ribeye and it was burnt in a few spots. It was a delicious steak except for the burnt parts because of that very charred taste. I prefer my steaks to have a nice sear rather than be burnt. The appetizers were very good.

Always a nice experience here...you can count on good service and food. A little pricey but as expected. I did find that the lobster tail was quite overpriced for the size though, which was the only disappointing part.

Went last night for a birthday dinner and the Shore Club did not disappoint!

Our server Lou was outstanding. Extremely helpful with the menu, prompt but not invasive, and a genuinely lovely person to interact with. He made our night amazing. The food was also fantastic. We started with the calamari (the only slight issue with our food all evening as it seemed a tiny bit rubbery, but still good), then had the NY strip loin, lamb chops (at Lou's recommendation), shoestring fries, salad, asparagus, and the scallop add on. Ended the evening with some dessert wine and creme brule. Everything was delicious!

Only drawback was that the dining room was overbooked so we were seated in the lounge area where the seats are a little too low for the tables. We were told this wasn't a regular occurrence and honestly it barely mattered because of how great the service was.

This was for my birthday and we had reservations for 7 pm and had to wait until after 8 pm to be seated. The cocktail drinks were on the house due to this long delay but service was absolutely slow, especially waiting for our raw oysters. Pre Covid we had great punctual service. The food was delicious as always.

Second visit to Shore Club Toronto. First experience was great, food and service wise, but had a group of convention folks that sort of ruined the dinner with an Applebee's-like noise level...

This visit was outstanding, service and ambiance wise but the food was disappointing. The ceasar salad was outstanding but my filet was a) cold (butter not melted should be an indicator for the chef...) b) way under done... Like blue... I sent back for heating and clearly it was either just microwaved or tossed in a broiler... I did not send back for a third visit to the grill/broiler...
I keep wanting to like this place😊 my wife picks the lobster cobb salad or halibut and raves about it... I'm more on the steakhouse side, menu wise... Maybe one more try 🤔
