My Pistachio crusted salmon was lovely and fully enjoyed however, my butter tart selected dessert was a disappointment. The curst was too hard/dry and the filling was lacking and it had no flavor. I'd remove that selection from the menu.

This was mummy first time dining at The Shore Club. Our waitress, Ali, was exceptional. Knowledgeable about the wine list and the menu. The decor was very nice and made for an enjoyable ambiance for dinner with dear friends. The food was below average, though. The items our party enjoyed the most were the lamb chops and the macaroni and cheese. I had the striploin steak which was very fatty and filled with gristle. It was not a good cut of meat. Aside from the quality of the cut, the flavor was not enjoyable. Perhaps it was old or not seasoned properly? Another friend ordered the filet, cooked medium, and it came from the kitchen as rare, so he had to send it back. Maybe because it was a slow, cold, January night the kitchen was not at the top of their game. Nonetheless, I can’t see myself going back nor recommending this restaurant to others, which is a shame because Ali truly made the evening enjoyable and memorable.

The overall experience was excellent. I had noted several food allergies in the OpenTable reservation and they made sure to mention and confirm them, so that was appreciated.
The food was delicious and plentiful, with the exception of the Caesar salad that was small for $14. The Oysters were fresh and the side dishes were tasty, including Creamed Spinach, Toasted Brussels Sprouts and Onion Rings.
The NY Strip was underdone, so they promptly removed and replaced with one that was correctly cooked. I enjoyed my Seafood Ciopinni and found the portion to be excellent. We dined with two adults and two young teenagers and the ambience was just right for all of us.

Service-Good,although we didnt get the spinach on the house like she said we would (that played a role in how i tipped)

Food-We both had NY steak,mash potatoes cone separately at $12, also had the cesar salad which was ok.As mentioned we ordered spinach as a side and that disnt come out with the other food.We ask about it,and she said it would be on the house.But the bill came and they still charged $12 for it.We skipped dessert.

Drinks-Good options for wine.We had red wine at 9.oz didnt want to over due it on wine because we were celebrating new years and plan on drinking later in the night.

Atmosphere-Pretty good.Had our baby with us,and there were others kids as well.A few feiends hanging out,some people doing date nights.Nice set up inside.

Overall-I would recommend and would come back.Bill was over $200 total for 2 people which is about right for any restaurant.I would like to try other things on the menu,so I would be back.

We totally enjoyed our dining experience here before taking in Handel’s Messiah performed by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at Roy Thompson Hal!
What a night!
Lou was our server and he was a master at making us feel welcomed. Lou walked us through the experience making sure we were happy with our dinner selection. From where we were sitting, it appeared all the staff were working together to keep order and keep the guests happy.
Outstanding!

Nice evening. We were not in a rush, so the speed of service didn't bother us. My strip was tougher than I'm used to, and I've eaten a lot of strip steaks in my time. Flavourful, but hard to cut. The lobster tail was quite good, sweet and prepared just right.

Thoroughly enjoyed our first experience at The Shore Club. The food was tasty and nicely presented but I struggled to find the value in the $9 a la carte plate of French fries and even more expensive plate of beets. Service was friendly and excellent (thanks Lou!) with the birthday girl being given the attention she deserved.

Very overpriced! Small and very expensive portion sizes for appetizers and sides. $14 for asparagus! Server was attentive at first then abandoned us to be attentive to a larger party. Kitchen extremely slow. Main fish/meat sizes were okay. Fine dining, support staff ran food and were very good. Go to Rodney’s instead.

Food came out in good time. Our section was busy, it took a few tries to get staff attention to request some items which at the price-point shouldn’t be an issue - aside from that my steak was done to perfection ! All sides were deliciously done as well. The piece de resistance was their in-house coconut cream pie. To die for.

For the last 20+ years, my cousins from Woodstock, Ontario come to Toronto to meet me for a One of a Kind craft show weekend. They are farm-to-table/locavores who appreciate good food and wines and I (as the Torontonian) always made, and still make, an effort to plan our Saturday evening meal at some place with excellent food and great atmosphere and sufficient lighting to enable us to read the menu and wine list without asking wait staff for a flashlight (but THAT'S a story about ANOTHER establishment to which we will NEVER return - 'nuff said!).

We have been to The Shore Club at least once, maybe twice previously, and have found the food excellent, the wine list exceptional and the atmosphere conducive to chatting over cocktails and dinner without having to scream at each other across the table.

This past Saturday evening was no exception: our reserveration was for 7 pm, we were seated promptly and then suddenly it was 11:15 pm and there was almost no one left in the dining room........so we really had to leave.....FAB!

Our server, Alyssa (sp?), was wonderful - great personality and very helpful when it came to making our dinner and wine selections.

One of the greatest experiences!
Our waitress was Liz and she was AMAZING!

I let them know we were coming to celebrate a birthday and they went above and beyond without asking!
She brought us Champaign to start and on the table was a card wishing my boyfriend a happy birthday! Later after dinner came a plate with 2 amazing truffles and a happy birthday message with a candle! The thought that’s put into their presentation is amazing. She made us feel welcomed as it was our first time there.
The food was amazing! Tasteful, and presentation was beautiful!! I highly recommend the crab cakes and lobster!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Service was good, but the food was extremely average for the price. The following may sound nitpicky, but here goes...the horseradish served with the prime rib lacked the “Oh my gosh, my head is going to blow up!” quality. Couldn’t sub a baked potato for mashed because they latter were in “short supply”. Is there a potato famine I hadn’t heard about? My husband and I prefer The Keg over The Shore Club.
