The Chase is our passion for casual elegance. Our rooftop restaurant highlights what we love most about upscale dining, and presents it in a modest, welcoming and thoughtful way. Our ongoing chase for the finest ingredients from around the world coupled with simple and uncomplicated flavours is the foundation for our culinary philosophy. Using refined techniques from Italian and French cuisines we formed a menu that can be best described as Contemporary North American. It celebrates the beauty of simplicity and keep you craving more. The service is detailed and technical, but as comfortable as being at home. The room is sophisticated, but refreshingly approachable and unpretentious.

Our table was not ready at all and we were waiting around but the manager took well care of us to accommodate. Started off on the wrong foot as we didn’t actually get our table but he took care of us that we didn’t even mind the situation. Service, food always the best!

Attentive - my wife drop the napkin & immediately replaced.
Excellent service - CAVATELLI - the lobster was a bit too salty. When mentioned to our waitress, she immediately replaced a new one. However, it is still too salty. Also, my wife is allergic to cashew and they placed the cashew for my beef separately so we can both share.
Coat check - without a chip or ticket, the coat is ready for pickup when we leave.

Everything was perfect, but it is a little overpriced.

The wine list is mouthwatering, but really few affordable selections.
Once over the price, it was a great experience.

It is acrestaurant on the more expensive end but worth every dollar. The food is incredible and the service is excellent. They made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived and ensured our special anniversary was acknowledged and added a few extra touches to make it all that much better.

Thank you for a wonderful evening

While the manager on duty tried to make it right and our server was very gracious, The Chase was a true disappointment- with late service to the table (kitchen’s fault vs server), cold main courses and frankly a loud environment if you’re looking to hang out and chat with friends. Our food had great taste however with the steep competition in Toronto, and at these prices - I would say go elsewhere. Disappointing since I’ve been downstairs a handful of times and it was quite good.... too bad as we are real foodies!

Food was good - but not spectacular as the price tag would lead you to believe.
in fact, we didn't really have an issue with the price tag but the portions were really small.
overall, the service was great, the rooftop patio is awesome and i would recommend going, just plan to eat first and then enjoy the patio with some drinks and apps.

The food and service were very good however the noise level made conversation difficult even in a quieter corner and this was at dinner. If you want to be able to have a nice conversation then this is not the place to go. For me this is important so I won’t be back despite its other strengths.

The outside deck made for an excellent evening. My main suggestion or criticism was that the lamb dish, which we both had, was disappointing. For $49 I expected something more substantial. I didn’t think the size of quality of the dish was worth close to that
Generally good food but overpriced .

Good ambience but the food was below expectaction. I had the pearl platter (very little food for the price and not very fresh) and the pan roast (very good!). I did have an upset stomach at night thought likely due to the pearl platter) :(.

Overall i would only go again for drinks on the patio.

I was told CHASE is famous for seafood. But the seafood platter we had for appetizer wasn't very fresh, & the portion was small, despite the cost. 5/F outside view was so so, mostly blocked by buildings.
There weren't a lot of choices of food on the menu either.....

However, it was nice that they had prepared a cake for us as dessert, for our wedding anniversary.

All aspects of our evening were better than expected. Service was the best, food was outstanding. A little slow on the drinks when it gets busy, likely because the bar isn't that big, but that's ok! Thanks for making our meal before the concert amazing!

Noisy, at least in the section where our party sat. Food was visually pleasing, but not especially tasty. The sommelier did something that may be standard in Canada, but would be odd in the U.S., I think. We brought our own magnum of wine. We called ahead to confirm that was OK and established a corkage fee. No issues there. When I offered the sommelier a glass or taste, she confessed/remarked that she had already done that out of our sight. She said it was policy to test every bottle before serving at the table, whether the bottle was brought in by the customer or sold by the restaurant. I've never heard of that before. I think the sommelier should have reported that fact without my having to pry the information from her. If the practice is standard Canadian, then my fault for not knowing. I didn't remark on this sequence of events, nor does it affect my rating. Just a note to other Yanks to be aware.

The venue was beautiful - good location and a good view. The patio area looked energetic and live. The dining area had an elegant ambiance. The service received was below expectations - one of the worst I have personally had while dining. After having to wait for 20 minutes for our table, we were seated at one which was open since we arrived. Our hostess rushed us on all of our orders and quickly cleared our plates after the appetizers. We got a cold-shoulder and unfriendly vibes.

The food is good but very expensive for what it is, quantities are very small. The price of the wine is ridiculous, 17$ for 5oz of a very basic wine !
Service was friendly but very slow.
First part of the restaurant is nice but the further one is old fashion, it almost looks like an old ballroom.
The Chase Fish and Oysters downstairs is so much better, this one was really disapointing.
