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.

From the second we walked in, we were impressed with The Chase. The ambiance is fantastic, exuding a sophisticated, modern elegance. We enjoyed delicious and inventive cocktails before dinner, and a fantastic wine selection with our meal. The food is something special. We were impressed not only with the taste of the food, but also how well it was cooked and the beautiful presentation. We split the burrata, the venison, and the cauliflower & truffle. We then had that the Lime for dessert. Everything was amazing. The burrata was creamy, light, and delicious. The venison was cooked perfectly, with excellent accompaniments, and the kitchen split it into two plates for us to enjoy. The Lime dessert was a wonderfully light end to an amazing meal. The lime was tart, the meringue was fluffy and not too sweet, and the toasted coconut was very subtle. I would honestly say this was one of the best meals I've ever had.

The Chase is always reliably lovely. Prices are steep, but quality is excellent. If you are sitting in the walkway between the bar and the dining room it can be a little loud, but the atmosphere is generally luxe.

Table wasn’t as expected- we were seated across from the kitchen. The food took forever to come. The seafood pan roast was minimally warm- the first bite, the oyster was actually cold. Waiter wasn’t knowledgeable and made us feel rushed. Taking the plate as soon as we finished the last bite, and asking my fiancé if she wanted the bill when I left for the washroom for a single minute, and saying he wasn’t sure if the restaurant accepts Amex. Personally feel there are better restaurants at the same price that one can enjoy for a sophisticated night out.

It was my birthday and our server went above and beyond any expectation that I had. I believe his name was branden? He was exceptional. Honestly the word exceptional doesn’t do him justice. Thank you to him and The Chase for making my birthday so special. Also!! Thanks for the card.

Everything was great. The only thing upsetting was when the wine we ordered was out of stock. The wine list wasn’t marked as such and an attempt was made at selling us a higher priced wine on the list, making it look like a bait and switch. When I made it clear that this approach wasn’t acceptable, the wine was offered at the same price as what was ordered which is what should have been done in the first place.

Great ambiance and decor. Service was average. Starters were tasty but mains (venison, scallops, cod) were mediocre at best. Dessert (chocolate) was fantastic.

I was downtown for a conference and thought we’d try out this restaurant . We ordered the small seafood platter which cost $75. It came in a small platter with only 4 oysters, 2 crab claws, 2 shrimps, 2 Ahi tuna and 2 snapper slices. We have been to many of the top restaurants in TO and this platter is way overpriced compared to one we had at Buca Yorkville.
The beef tartare was average. We ordered another shrimp cocktail which was also average; $28 for 4 medium shrimps. My wife had the Arctic Char which was nicely done. I had the Pan Roast which is just half a lobster with mussels and tiny little shrimps and some pieces of fish.
This was bland if not for the soupy sauce that they put in after. We had a bottle of Ramsay 2016 Cab which cost $105. I later did a search on Wine Search and it cost $18.
The markup is ridiculously high. Most high end restaurants
Have a markup of 3 to 4 times. This is almost 6 times.
The best part of the evening is the service. I think this restaurant is too much hype and no substance. The price is excessive compared to most fine dining restaurants.
I think Blu, Buca and Cafe Boulud are better in terms of food and value. We will not go back.

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.

VERY noisy place last night. Not clear why but extremely hard to have a conversation. The food and service were excellent but not much fun to eat it without much conversation.
