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.

    Considering what they charge for the food, I was expecting to be blown away with taste and flavour - that's not the case. Pretty simple food for the price. Same with the cocktails, pretty mediocre. Ambience and design are great at least.

    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.

    Food was quite good, but quite heavy. The side dishes appear small, but are very filling and dense, so don't get carried away and order too much. Pace yourself!

    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…

    What a fun, delicious evening. The staff made us feel very welcome. The vibe was "we have some great food and beverages to share, come let me show you". We were a party of six for a 40th Birthday, so we were in a good mood and the staff made sure it continued. Rather then having to decide what we each wanted, the server recommended "let the chef make a family style dinner". It worked very well. I would not think to serve six people with only three mains, but it was more then enough! They brought appetizers and side dishes and then desert. All to be shared. We had cocktails, a bottle of the house champagne for a toast, two bottles of Rose wine with dinner and few of us had some desert drinks. The wine steward kept us away from the crazy priced wines (and they have a lot of those) and directed us to ones that matched the food and my wallet. But dinner for six was still $2000 with tip. In summary, great food, fun excellent staff, and a nice atmosphere. Now all it needs is an affordable price :)

    Started with a Greyhound-style cocktail with clarified grapefruit juice and elderflower. 10/10! Loved the Prime Rib - we had the 20 oz Palace cut with horseradish. I would never say the meat was my favourite part but this was really tremendous. The mushrooms were fabulous, with a little hollandaise pool. The Palace Potatoes were cold and just okay. The Yorkshire pudding tasted old, it didn’t have that “just-puffed” taste. It was kind of hard and also cold. The clam chowder starter was a standout and worth every delicious bite. We had the Palace bacon, too, and it was quite something. The meal was insanely rich without a vegetable to be had, but it was a special occasion so we ended with a piece of chocolate cake. WORTH IT. Service was great and everyone seemed to like their job! I think that’s sweet.

    Fantastic dining experience from start to finish. Party of 4 greeted warmly and felt very welcome. Great ambiance with cool tunes playing at the perfect sound level. Extremely attentive and non-evasive service. Food was next level: palace bacon, winter daikon, steak tartare, 35oz tommy, palace potatoes, Yorkshire, chocolate cake, key lime pie. Only thing that I’d say wasn’t a “must do” was the winter daikon. Bought our own super-Tuscan ($75 corkage fee) and the somm was more than happy to decant and serve it for us. All in all one of our top dining experiences in North America. Came in less costly than expected and we thought it was worth every penny.

    Outstanding service, great atmosphere and good food is all you really can ask for. It would be perfect if the prices were lower, and the kitchen was a little easy on the salt, and they would pack the rib bone for you to take home after you paid hundreds of dollars for your meal - but these are small points in the large scheme of things which was a lovely and enjoyable evening!

    Every single person at the restaurant has a real passion for the place. They truly care about delivering an amazing experience and getting you to eat AMAZING food. Everything that I ate was phenomenal. Not just the food, which was perfect, but also the drinks. Their selection of mocktails is perfect for those who don't/can't drink. Everything I tried was amazing. One of the best meals I've ever had

    So there’s been a lot of hype over this place and I’ve been wanting to go for ages. I hate to say this but I honestly felt like it was overhyped. Don’t get me wrong, the food was delicious, but it wasn’t anything super special or mind blowing. The service was very nice and I appreciated the knowledge they had over the foods and the preparation methods. Here is my opinion on a few standout dishes that are worth mentioning: Sicilian crudo - that sauce, wow. The fish was beautiful too but I've had more impressive sashimi and much more reasonable prices Beef Tartare - probably the best tartare I've had in a while. Very non traditional preparation and absolutely delicious. Celeriac - wow, wow, wow. every element of this dish was 10/10. Bass - beautifully cooked, rich bouillabaisse mushrooms - i wish there were more We also had a few other dishes that were good, but I'm not thinking about them nor going back for them: 40oz tomahawk - delicious and well cooked, but it was steak and a nice cut meat, cooked well, is difficult not to enjoy palace potatoes - dare I say this, but totally under-salted. I was very surprised. But the crunch on them was 10/10 turnip gratin - not my cup of tea at all. 2/6 of us flat out didn't like the dish. croquettes - seriously overpriced for what it was and i get that the truffle was a contributing factor, but the creaminess of the potato (which was amazing) stole the show. Daikon shiro miso - i found this unique and interesting and is worth a try. I wanted the daikon to be a tad crunchier. Bacon - yes obviously it tasted good, how does bacon taste bad? It was thick cut with sweet charsiu type glaze. But it was bacon and sweet, nothing to write home about. I’m glad we went because I wanted to try it, but sadly won’t be going back and would give my recommendation with a bit of a caveat.

    Have been here twice and enjoyed both my times here. For their Valentine's Day there was a prefix that came with a bottle of champagne (extra cost) and with the mains being an option of either prime rib or bass or both for an extra cost. We opted for the bubbles, but not the extra bass. The appetizers were a great assortment of seafood, shrimp, scallops, oyster with uni, tuna taretare. Perfect to start the night off with clean, citrus and tart flavors. Next were small bites, the first was a sort of scotched egg topped with clam and caviar that was my favourite bite of the night. Then house made toast accompanied by spicy crab salad, that was light on the spice but was creamy and paired well with the crunchy buttered toast. For the main, prime rib was soaking in its juices cooked medium and was tender and juicy. Of the sides that came with it, the standout were the croquettes that were crisp outside and had a rich rutabaga creamy inside. The desserts were great as well but by this time I was filling up with the earlier courses I couldn't eat much more. The molasses ice cream was surprisingly light and a great end to the meal. Overall PSP is a great restaurant and it does lean to the pricier end but can be well worth it if this is an extravagance you're willing to indulge in.

    Absolutely blown away with the service and the food. Have never felt more taken care of by the entire staff of a restaurant, who also gave off the impression they were all happy to be there and to be of service. The food was amazing! Yes it is a splurge, but one that is well worth it for special occasions and we plan to come back to celebrate them!
