Dinner: Monday - Friday: 5:00pm - 10:00pm.
Usually the service is very good and because it is a fine dining restaurant one would expect that. On Wednesday night however, mid-week it was very full and unfortunately the service really suffered. Our host - who is a frequent patron of your restaurant - and her guests all noticed that the service was really under par. There needed to be more waiters on the floor and much better service. We hope that this will improve.
Expected more based on previous reviews. Everything was just ok, nothing extraordinary about it. My fish was a bit too salty and a bit too rubbery.
This restaurant is an experience in itself. We were there celebrating my fiancé’s 40th birthday. From the start till the end of our dinner, we were treated like royalty!! Food is almost perfect, and the wine selection is excellent. For an occasion, it is the perfect place!
The fish was rubbery and had no flavour.. not a true representation of Portuguese food
Our lunch of the year! It was such a hard decision to choose just an appetizer and main course each the two of us shared a fabulous meal of 6 appetizers. We thought the lobster bisque, grilled sardines, grilled octopus, baked goat cheese and eggplant, and the quail with mushroom risotto were all spectacular. We would repeat that exact lunch again. Our professional and courteous servers matched well some wines with our food. The meringue dessert was a lovely end to our afternoon. Will return soon.
As always, Chiado does not disappoint. Excellent service, high quality, authentic experience. Excellent price to quality ratio. Would highly recommend.
Chiado is absolutely and consistently the best seafood restaurant in Toronto. Great choice of very fresh fish & seafood perfectly prepared. A good selection of wines including many from Portugal not often seen in Toronto
Chiado was magnificent as usual. We shared a number of appetizers at the table and they were all excellent. The fish was fantastic. This is the best place for fish in Toronto.
Although food was excellent, even more impressive was the friendly informed service. The dining room reminded me of 19th c Europe, but the food is creative. Clearly a chief is hard at work. Our waiter could describe our options with expertise and made the evening so much more enjoyable.
Vivo en la CDMX y viajo a Toronto regularmente
Procuro visitar este restaurante en cada viaje y siempre quedo invitado a regresar
My husband and I decided to have dinner here for our 5 year anniversary. It was such a great evening..fabulous food, great service, warm and intimate atmosphere. Highly recommend! Thank you Chiado!
Great service, phenomenal food, and fantastic selection of wine.
Excellent great selection of Portuguese fish.
Ordered two whole fish entrees. One was perfectly roasted; the other was under done. Good thing my guest had the perfect one.
The cooking here is absolutely excellent. Some of the best seafood I ever ate, an amazing selection of Portuguese and Spanish wines that savvy servers know how to showcase and adapt, everything market fresh... Hard to find any default here. Staff was very accommodating despite having two children - despite somewhat displeased older guests (the restaurant had a lot of those when we went in), we could perfectly enjoy our wonderful dinner as a family. Warmly recommended.
We were delighted by every aspect of our lunch - food, presentation, service, setting.
Wonderful experience and delicious seafood
Good chicken amd Beer very grumpy staff but adds to
The menu leans more to seafood some meat dishes are provided on the menu. Seasonal fresh fish from Portugal waters are highlighted by the server. My wife and I started with grilled squid and a salmon tartare. The squid was fresh and flavorful and served lightly grilled portions were very rare. The tartare was excellent. My main dish was lobster and risotto it was delicious. My wife had the tile fish with a spicy red sauce, peppers and root vegetables. This fish was part of the seasonal fresh fish selection. It to was cooked perfect and very delicious. Wine selection is very stacked with Portuguese varietals. Excellent whisky and port wine selection also. Very nice deserts offered to round the menu out.
The service started slow and the staff gave more attention to a few surrounding tables that came in after us. No big deal service got better as the evening progressed. Waiter was very helpful with wine selection and questions we had on menu. Overall really nice restaurant with fresh quality ingredients prepared very well.
Lovely staff and excellent food! A little gem!
Excellent restaurant.. Have been going there for years and they are consistent. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. It's a sign of a great restaurant when the same staff have been there for years and are always happy to have us back. And the food is fantastic.
I was here for a business meal and could not have asked for a better setting. The layout is small which is great for conversation. A market fish tray came out with beautiful selections, topped only by the service and explanation. While the traditional Portuguese meals are available here, they are served with a wonderful culinary twist-like exotic sauces over familiar Portuguese fish. There was nothing left to be desired. On a side note, their desserts, particularly the chocolate mousse, is lighter and less sweet than traditional Portuguese fare, making it a welcome ending to a great meal.
excellent food and great experience. Fish offering was excellent. Great selection of Portuguese wine
One of the best meals we’ve both had in a long time! Great overall and service was terrific!
Amazing Portuguese fine dining!!! Everyone in our group was impressed. Amazing fresh fish and a great menu. Discovered some great Portuguese wines, white and red! Overall a perfect evening! Will return!
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.
Perfectly executed meal, I cannot wait to return. The Fish display and selection was beautiful.
Outstanding food and service
A little pricey but the food is reflected in the pricing
Fantastic service and a wonderful menu. If you are looking for an authentic, upscale Portuguese dinning experience, Chiado is the place to go.
heartily recommend the piri piri monkfish and the fish stew-- both were outstanding. The white chocolate flan and the chocolate mousse delicious. Attentive, observant and knowledgeable waitstaff were available just exactly the right amount. it was a delightful experience!
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.
Best seafood i had in many years. Excellent fresh quality and amazing service. Will visit again for sure
We are occasionally going there for dinner, at least once a year. We love the environment and foods.
Chiado is as good as it ever has been -- everything is done just right.
Attentive but not obsequies service. Knowledgable staff. Phenomenal Portuguese wine list. The fresh seafoods were a great value. Not inexpensive but you get what you pay for. Planning next trip!
Love it! Excellent foods and service! Will back again for sure!
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.
If you want amazing fish and great service, Chiado is our favorite place
