We were extremely impressed by the service; prompt and unobtrusive, yet friendly and helpful when needed. The food had unique flavours that we really enjoyed. Serving sizes were perfect, and we enjoyed being able to share sides. Cost was high, especially for liquor, but the food was certainly worthwhile.

My wife and I decided to have a date night at Shore Club Toronto. We had been a few years ago (when I was concierge downtown) and loved the experience and thought we would treat ourselves for a special treat. We arrived a little early and decided to sit in the bar for a cocktail and a snack. The Manhattan was amazing and we ordered a dozen oysters and only 11 showed up. Once the food was dropped we didnt see our server (I will omit the name) for the duration of our lounge experience, we ended up having to go back to the host stand to ask to be seated and transfer the bill.
The main dinning room was very nice, our server Monty was an absolute gem! We started with the Beef Carpacio and Salmon Tartare - I recall the Beef being better in the past and the Salmon was ok, nothing I would write home about. For our mains my wife chose the Blackened Halibut and I had the Tuna with a side of beets and wild mushrooms (see images). The Halibut had to be sent back as it was very well done and quiet dry. Monty didn't hesitate and arranged another order and removed the original from the bill. The second order was much better. My Tuna was good and the ponzu sauce was great, but looking at the plate left something to be desired, especially for $39.00 (see image). Even a spoon pull or swipe on the plate with a sauce would improve the visual a lot. We finished with creme brulee which was the star of the meal (sadly) but it was incredible!
Overall, if it wasn't for Monty's service this would had been a very very poor experience, he salvaged what he could with the product he had available to him. When you spend over $300.00 on a meal we just felt we should of had more highlights than lowlights. I raved about the Shore Club for years after my first visit, but I am hesitant to recommend The Shore Club after the most recent. Perhaps a "one off" but for the price paid its tough to "roll the dice" on another visit and be out hundreds of dollars again.

Overpriced!!! Ordered steak and lobster and my guest ordered the steak alone. Very disappointed in the filet mignon - it was tough, fatty and tasteless. A la carte style menu is a rip off. $10 for a baked potato with your steak - give me a break!! My guest’s steak looked so lonely on his plate as he had opted not to PURCHASE vegetables or potato to go along with it. You even have to pay for your basic “artisan” bread and butter. Will NOT return and would NOT recommend to anyone.

This is a lovely venue but I feel a bit overpriced for the food served. Especially when you pay extra for your sides. Okay for a special occasion but there are a lot of wonderful restaurants in TO and for me this one didn’t stand out as exceptional.

Everything was spot on for my boyfriend's 50th Birthday with a tiny issue being that my steak wasn't hot or even warm. Since we were heading to a show afterwards I didn't want to send it back.

Service and food was excellent overall and they did go out of their way to provide complimentary champagne and dessert for the Birthday man.

I would recommend and be back!

Cheers,
Victoria

First time at this restaurant and I made a note that we were celebrating a birthday without thinking much of it. We were immediately greated with a nice welcoming surprise. We had Monty as our waiter and he was exceptional. Very kind and patient. He alone would’ve given us a reason to go back. I don’t really write reviews, but this one had to be done. Very memorable meal and experience.

We like the Shore Club because it’s convenient to our work, you can always find a table, and the service is very attentive. The food is also very good; we would go here more often if it wasn’t so pricey. Dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine, and also buying a few drinks for friends came to almost $400, $450 with tip.

I loved my experience at Shore Club! It’s a must try for those who love food and dining experiences! I took my partner for a celebration, and it was both our first time there. The food was absolutely delicious, and all so beautifully plated and prepared. Service was incredible, and the staff went above and beyond to make us feel special! I haven’t stopped showing people our photos and recommending the restaurant. Can’t wait to come back!

Terrible. Such a disappointment, especially considering the price. Steaks were way too salty, lobster overcooked and dried out, flavour of the sauce for the scallops was just off. Desserts not worth it. Portions were generous and service was ok - only positive feedback. At this location and price point, expect a much higher quality food experience and they definitely did not deliver. We were there on a Monday night when it wasn't that busy so perhaps got stuck with less experienced cooks in the kitchen. On the bright side, the food was so below par that it made the evening even more memorable as four of us were there to celebrate a birthday - we just had to laugh at blowing over $600 on such a bad meal.

Aghast to find that one of the oysters in the dozen we ordered was smaller than the tip of my pinkie finger. Clearly inadequate quality control of that dish in the kitchen.

It was okay, not the usual attentive service and great food I expect from the Shore club. We almost dined and dashed because our server forgot to bring us the bill and we had sat around talking for so long we got up to leave and realized we hadn’t paid. My steak was well done, they brought me a new steak and comped my meal and glass of wine which was great but overall, experience just okay. This is not the norm for this restaurant.

The Shore Club had a great ambiance, Oysters we amazing!! Seafood tower was very good and the mac and cheese did not did-appoint. Drinks were great and to top it off the Crème Brulee was perfect! The waiter, Jacob, was the perfect balance of attentive but gave us plenty of space to enjoy a romantic dinner and have a quiet conversation. Overall the experience was great and I will be back!

Great service, except the hostesses seemed to be a little uninterested. Everyone was so wonderful and attentive and we enjoyed our food very much! And we loved the special details made for us since it was our anniversary that made our night a little extra special! Would highly recommend to someone and we will also be back again, we want to try the seafood tower next time!

Food was good but I wouldn't say it was outstanding and worth the high prices. Service was excellent and the ambiance is very romantic and quiet. Vegetables were an extra cost too. For the prices you are paying they should at least include some vegetables. Be prepared to pay at least $100 per person if you want a cocktail, appetizer, entree, dessert and wine with dinner.

Had to send 1 course back twice for not being according to specific instructions given while ordering. A third course was kept, but not according to the description given by the waiter. (crispy skin salmon dish came ... with no skin at all!)
This is unacceptable for a restaurant such as this one.
Altogether, though, the rest of the food was very tasty, and the management was fair in comp'ing all unsatisfactory items...
A very bad impression made on our business dinner, nonetheless! I wouldn't recommend this place.

We decided to sit in the lounge area instead of the dining room. The lounge was much quieter and comfortable than the dining area appeared to be since it was quite busy during the time we went.
I tried ordering oysters, but the kitchen had run out, so I was a little disappointed by that. For dinner, we ordered the filet mignon and the lamb chops with sides of grilled mushrooms and roasted broccoli. The fillet was great, perfectly medium rare, but the lamb chops (total of 6 sliced in portions of 2) were all different temperatures. The first chop was rare, the second was medium rare, and the last was almost a medium well. Aside from the temperatures being off, the food was seasoned well.
Service was nice, our waitress was very patient and came to check on us multiple times through our dining experience.
