Prime Seafood Palace

CAN$51 and over
Steak
Prime Seafood Palace is a modern steakhouse offering a selection of beef, seafood, and vegetables all sourced from purveyors we love and value. Unexpected - a space to truly experience in person. The main entry is located in a quiet courtyard, drawing patrons away from the humming activity of Queen Street West. Inspired by Matty Matheson’s East Coast roots and appreciation for architecture, our design is conceptualized as a light-filled cathedral clad in white maple, with a menu that gives nod to the classic steakhouse tradition.

“Palace” is an apt description for celebrity chef Matty Matheson’s steak and seafood temple. With slatted maple panelling and brass accents, the interior gives off Scandi-style sleekness. The steakhouse-influenced menu is full of premium cuts with fancy flourishes, plus caviar service.

    Excellent Dining Experience! There were many standouts: Lobster spaghetti, bacon, black pepper steak au poivre and mushroom spetzel. The maple tart for dessert is an absolute must. We sat at the bar and loved the attentive service.

    I can’t explain how phenomenal everything was. Top 5 meals of my life. We flew in from Boston and we had a late reservation (1030) and they called to see if we would like to come in earlier. I booked whatever reservation I could get just to try it so having us come in earlier what such a pleasant surprise! We ordered the shrimp cocktail to start, the prime rib to share, white asparagus, palace potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, and for dessert we had the maple tart and chocolate cake. Everything we had was 10/10. The wine pairings were excellent. Our waitress was so attentive and kind and made the experience so much more memorable. EMMA YOU ARE SO GREAT!!!! We can’t wait to return !!

    Unfortunately a just-fine experience priced for an excellent one. The room is pretty but it’s loud and clangy. Service is well meaning and friendly but pacing was off, and missed the chance to refill our drinks. In terms of food, I get that this was supposed to be classics done well, but this is over indexed to the point where nothing was particularly memorable. Overall an experience devoid of character, which is rather disappointing considering both the owner’s bona fides and the substantial price point.

    PSP exceeded the lofty expectations we had for our dinner. The food was wonderful but the staff took the experience to the next level. They were friendly and welcoming without any snobbery that you might expect at a high end dining experience. Vince the maitre d went above and beyond be recommending a few after dinner spots that we out-of-towners would not have likely found. Sarah our waitress was kind and patient as was the guy who helped with our wine selection (apologies that his name escapes us). Finally the ambience was cool without any pretentiousness. We cannot recommend this spot any higher, not that they need our help. Thanks again to all involved. We hope to be back.

    This is the most exceptional restaurant in North America and I’m tempted to say my favourite restaurant in the world. I always visit when over from London and went twice this time. Both times my guests agreed it was one of the best experiences they had had. Staff are deeply fun and know their food. The sommelier is world class. Having visited a few 1* restaurants in Toronto I would say PSP is on a completely different level. Maybe the Michelin dude hasn’t been yet - which is weird. It’s very expensive but worth it and has the same energy and exceptional cooking of Dorian in London. A must go to restaurant and worth a detour if you’re in New York. If they have the special delice de Bourgogne Pudding on - order it with Japanese whisky and thank me later.

    Celebrated my birthday here in the stunning Cottage room. Our server, Zack, was incredibly attentive and informative and the hosting staff went out of their way to make my friends and I feel special. The lobster and spaghetti and crudo were 10/10. And clearly, this restaurant is beautiful.

    The place is beautiful. Every single staff person is friendly and clearly passionate about their work. I know it’s known for the proteins but the radish dish and the white asparagus were exceptional….and of course so was the beef! But the star of the show was the maple tart. We had an unforgettable evening. Go!

    Absolutely beautiful restaurant with excellent and thoughtful service. I ordered lobster pasta starter and was disappointed (especially for $50). The sauce was too thick and server had promised lots of lobster. There was some small lobster pieces and not very flavourful. I also ordered fluke - the fish was perfectly cooked but the sauce was flavourless. I was wishing for a little salt and lemon juice to brighten it up. The other members of our party ordered steak and were very happy with their meal. Also the tuna tartar was a standout. Chocolate cake was moist and delicious. The entire meal for three was $900 with wine and so I expected much more from every dish and especially from the seafood.

    The food was amazing, expensive as expected. But our server (I believe Kevin), was not very attentive and looked like he didnt want us to be there or even cared if we were there. Unfortunately, he made our experience not very enjoyable. But everyone else were really nice and food was great. I wish for the amount I have spent, we could have had a better experience and leave happy…

    I typically don't write reviews but my experience at Prime Seafood Palace was a weird one. My wife and I decided to come her to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary. We ordered the smoked trout and waffles, as well as the lobster spaghetti for the apps, and they were both amazing. Then things started to fall off. We ordered the $250 tomahawk steak medium rare but it was poorly cooked. It was cooked well done instead of medium rare. For a steak of this price, it needs to be executed right. This is where the service started to get really strange. There was a couple sitted to the right of us who arrived earlier than us and they were also celebrating their anniversary. As their meal was concluding, they were offered a dessert menu but declined to order dessert but the restaurant offered them a complimentary dessert anyway, which was a nice touch. There was also two ladies who seemed to be friends enjoying a night out, sitting to the left of us, who ordered dessert to go but the restaurant gave them a complimentary dessert to eat in the restaurant. But then when it was time for us to order dessert, the restaurant made no special effort like they did the other two tables. This is poor service. I'm not sure if the other two tables had a special connection to the restaurant but it made us feel "less than". We weren't expecting anything free or complimentary but if you provide better service to some customers and poorer service to others, that's really strange to see in a restaurant of this caliber. We have been to many Michelin starred restaurants and never had a weird and strange experience like we did at this restaurant. Toronto has many amazing other restaurants so I would recommend you try these other places out instead.

    This place is special. They have put so much thought into everything, and the service is fantastic. Zac was our server and he was amazing. We tried the crudo, the lobster spaghetti, yorkshire pudding, mushrooms, palace potatoes, the fluke, chocolate cake and the ice cream and it was such a wonderful meal! I would definitely recommend and will be going back.

    Loved! We’d been wanting to visit PSP for a long time and finally made the trip to Toronto. Beautiful architectural space, cool vibes with rock music including some Ozzie and not too loud. Exquisite on point service and amazing food!! Favorites were probably the lobster spaghetti and prime rib - so hard to choose.

    Ambiance and interior were absolutely incredible, staff were top-notch and friendly. Maybe the nicest bathroom I've ever been in. Food was VERY pricy, as is to be expected, but the portions and quality did not seem to be of much value. The meals we ordered were very salty and we would go to the lengths of saying that that salinity overpowered some of the flavors of the dishes. I would say that going at least once is an experience you would want to have for sure and I'm glad I did. Would recommend for sure, as long as you are willing to spend an arm and a leg for the experience, not so much the food.

    Everything tasted excellent and nothing fell short but if I had to skip a dish it would be the sea bass. Leafy greens tastes way better than it looks. My favourites: uni and egg custard, Sicilian crudo, and tomahawk steak

    We went to celebrate a birthday. We ordered a round of cocktails and appetizers to start. At the same time we ordered a bottle of wine, the rib steak and the prime rib along with one side of potatoes.. Our appetizers and cocktails came out real quick. Unfortunately, our bottle of was emptied because we waited so long for our main to come out.. They were apologetic but we waited too long… We weren’t expecting another bottle however, for the level of perceived service, something should have been offered. It was that noticeable of a wait…
