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 starter and mains arrived cold - while our sides were hot. The server was overwhelmed with more tables than it seemed she could handle, so was always rushing off. Several times we had to call after her to add items to our order or ask her for something. The wine selection was excellent - it would be nice to see an optional Vegan/Vegetarian menu - such as many downtown restaurants now offer. The food was beautifully plated, but the lackluster service was disappointing as compared to other high end restaurants in the downtown core - would like to see the service standard raised to the same level as Kasa Moto or Planta.

Absolutely awful, food was cold the service was slow and confused they took forever to come out with it, it was New Year’s Eve I get that but awful set menu with too many mixes of foods that was almost poison, usually love the restaurants in this city but for the first time me and my girlfriend got to admit that this was by far the worst restaurant we’ve been too. Do not recommend. The chase being a high rated restaurant you’d expect more out of it like a better pre fixed menu, and service. We asked for oysters and we didn’t get them while the people next to us did, lol makes no sense but that’s just the way it goes on down at the chase!

Some aspects well-delivered (e.g. staff responsive and informed, service well-executed) and stumbles in other areas (e.g. had to reserve online but restaurant entirely empty, entree wildly over-seasoned...edible, if not enjoyable); overall a fair to middling experience.

I took some clients there for dinner and was thoroughly impressed. It was a little louder than I expected, but we adjusted out own volume to ensure we could hear one another.

We started with the Avocado and Mushroom Flatbread as appetizers. Both were very good. Fresh ingredients made all the difference in taste.

Everyone ordered something different, and no one was disappointed. I ordered the Cavatelli, which was a pasta dish that included lobster from Nova Scotia. It was delicious! It had plenty of lobster meat to accompany the pasta...and the sauce...yum!

In closing, I failed to mention the cocktail menu. It was very diverse and fantastic! I would recommend this place to those looking for a great place downtown that has great views. I will definitely be back!

I made the reservation for a table, to my surprise I was only seated at the bar and was not provided with a table. The attendant apologized but did not provide the reason to why even though I had the reservation I was not seated at the table. It was a business lunch with an important client and because of unprofessional service at The Chase I was very disappointed. I chose The Chase for a reason being high quality service however it did not meet any of my expectations. This is not the first time I am dining at The Chase but this is unacceptable

Ordered the Scallops, they were tiny (3 of them ); I understand this is lunch, but many customers like me may expect larger scallops at a seafood restaurant. Taste was okay nothing special; the other items on our party of seven seems to be better, based on feedback I received.

Courtney and Annie make the Chase an incredible dining experience while Marie-Claire finds hidden gems in the wine cellar. The food is impeccable, fresh, and presented with finesse. The management team is constantly catering to every need and provides an exceptional VIP experience. Go for the Halibut for 2 and the Ribeye - you won’t be disappointed.

As soon as you enter you know the staff has been well trained paying attention to any requests and ensuring we are given top notch service. The menu is simple but has just the right amount of information to make menu decisions. Our server was extremely helpful both by way of making recommendations and by ensuring our order was to perfection. Amazing food with superb service.

Disappointed on our second try. Started out great with calm atmosphere, great cocktails and great service. And then it all went down from there. All food was served late and luke warm - like the food had been sitting - had to send one dish back as it was un-edible and taken off our bill. Rarely do we ever say anything but this was too much. As the night progressed we cut our night short due to the noise which left a damper on our expectations especially when you are hitting $150-$175 pp. We had the same experience our third time at their other location Planta.

I booked The Chase but when I got to the restaurant we were told that the restaurant wasn’t available. We were given a table in its sister restaurant downstairs. If the restaurant wasn’t available then DO NOT accept the reservation.

We were tucked in front of the bathroom. The food was tasty, but generally arrived cold. The restaurant had actually ran out of a couple of dishes which was surprising for a 7:30 Saturday reservation. It definitely wasn’t awful, but for the price we felt that it could have been a lot better.

Have been to this high end, downtown Toronto establishment many times and have never been disappointed. Very good service but excellent food ! This is not some American restaurant where they pile food on the plate and you waste half - this is a place where the servings are moderate but the taste is refined and cooked to perfection. As always - Thank you !

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.

"I love the relaxed feel of The Chase it's like a comfortable elegant dining space. I definitely would return to try more dishes. I had the layers of chocolate cake, creamy ganache, peanut butter anglaise, vanilla ice cream & candied peanut and it was well presented, very rich and delious, you are able to taste every ingredient listed "Bravo". My friend and I enjoy going there, the service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.
