As always, service is excellent! starting from reservation to the end of evening.
This time I found food was not with the high standard I am used to. Service was excellent. My family really enjoyed it!
Will definitely recommend it in the future.

This place deserves the great ratings.
It checks all the boxes.
Service is terrific (Never had to touch the wine decanter. Our glasses were topped up all night)
The food was outstanding.
Grilled octopus was great
Sardines were ok (This was our least favorite)
Had a whole fish and a filet. Both were fabulous.
Nice filet portion.
The wine was excellent.
This is a really great choice and definitely was a good choice to celebrate my birthday!

The food was pretty good but lacked creativity/uniqueness. My carpaccio starter was excellent, but the other starters and mains ordered by my friends were good but fairly simple. I was expecting something more outstanding for the price.

Have been coming yearly for our anniversary dinner for the last five years. And in those five years it has retained. Its excellence in fine dining. The wait staff are knowledgeable and conduct themselves with a professional flair that that is seldom seen in other restaurants that claim to be fine dining. The menu is exquisite and well worth every cent. This is not the place you come to just eat. This is where you dine.

Very impressed by the service and the food. However, the prices were quite a bit more than I expected. With entry level wine at $50 plus, it sort of set the pace. My guests were very satisfied with their food. I chose a specialty fish that was brought to the table by the Maitre d'. At no time did he mention the price and its my fault, I should have asked, however I did not expect it to be $65 for about 4-5 ounces of fish no matter how good it was. We had a great overall experience and would recommend the restaurant however, this fine dinning establishment does have its price.

Excellent authentic Portuguese restaurant. The manager owner welcomes guests very nicely and the waiters and waitresses are charming, very courteous and efficient. The fish selection (catch of the day) is impressive and delicious and the Portuguese wines choice is great also. I recommend Chiado without hesitation

I have always loved Chiado. So much so that I invited friends to join our Anniversary dinner.
The food was as always fantastic. Lots of interesting flavours, lots of amazing fish choices etc....

Here's the very big DISAPOINTMENT. Is when the bill came to us. We found that there was another bottle of wine added to our bill.

My friends that were with us. Said that they were super disappointed. That they are finding this happening in TO a lot. The very last thing I expected that it would happen to us at CHIADO!

He did not want to give tip at all. But, he didn't want to ruin our anniversary. Please fix this and fast!

It kind of ruined everything else that was great up to that moment. Too bad!

I’ve heard raving review about Chiado so came here with my girlfriend for Summerlicious.

The Appetizers were fresh and flavourful but can’t say the same for our mains.

The dishes were executed perfectly ( duck confit had nice crispy skin / octopus was tender) but lacked flavour.

Our dessert had some stale meringue pieces and overall was not well put together. As for service the Staff is very warm and attentive so we definitely appreciated that!

Food was excellent but a little too small on the portions (although we were full) at the end. My only issue was that we ordered coffee with cream and sweetner and when it came they gave us milk. I cannot drink coffee with milk and I guess I must have made a "facial expression" because someone came over to me to ask "what can I do for you ?" without me signalling to our waiter (it might have been the owner) ... I said that I had asked for cream and the answer came back "I am sorry but that is all we have" and walked away. I wanted to say "then please take this back" but he left very abruptly and I ended up drinking my coffee with the milk (because I knew they make their coffee individually and it was more than $4 for just the 1 cup). I did end up having digestive issues later on. The point is that they should have told me before they made the coffee that they only had milk when I specifically asked for cream ......

My experience before was excellent, but this time around we were both disappointed. It's not that the food was terrible ... it just underwhelmed. Very average food from an above average place like Chiado.
