It was are first time dining at Chiado Restaurant. We dined with family. The seafood appetizer was terrific, loved the shrimp, octopus and cod. Our entree was grilled salmon, roasted potatoes, broccoli & carrots. So delicious! We had a variety of delicious Portuguese desserts. All...the desserts were amazing and outstanding. The chefs and waiters provided top notch service. I would highly recommend Chiado Restaurant if you visit Toronto or live in Toronto.More

Dining room is tastefully decorated and also a good number of “patio” tables. Service is excellent and attentive. We opted for the fish flown in from Portugal! We shared the Carpacio of Grouper and it was absolutely delicious! Then we picked 2 different fish fresh...from the Mediterranean and it was really well prepared tender and moist! Excellent dining experience!More

Nice atmosphere to dine good seafood if you are a seafood lover. Reasonable priced cocktails to go along great professional wait service also.

Not good. Excited by the (somewhat) limited menu, but this place failed in almost every category. I had grilled octopus, it was all wrong, wrong texture, not grilled, not crispy as octopus should be. The other peeps in our group had 3 different fishes, all...decent but none remarkable. Limited and super overpriced wine list and menu was disappointing. My company was fantastic, thankfully.More

Had a wonderful 50th birthday celebration. Food was excellent. Just as good as the first time we ate there almost 26 years ago!

Chiado is a great destination for a birthday or anniversary dinner. While not inexpensive, it provides excellent service, great food and you walk away having a good experience

Incredible restaurant, extremely excellent Portuguese food made to the highest standards and wordy of the reputation of being one of the two best Portuguese restaurant in Toronto.

I was invited here as a guest, and what a wonderful place for dinner. Very personalized service. They had several fresh fish options that they presented to us at the table. And, they have a lovely Portuguese twist, so when I brought up that I...had visited Portugal a while back and enjoyed cata plana, they offered to make it for me even though it was not on the menu. It was fantastic! The whole evening was perfect. I will definitely return here on one of my future trips to Toronto.More

Overall the restaurant is small, the prices are expensive however sometimes you get what you pay for. This is not one of those times, don't get me wrong, the itsy bitsy portions tasted good but if I wanted Tapas I would have made sure I...ate before I went to this restaurant. Very disappointed in the meal portions, my entree was the size of an appetizer. BEWARE, EAT BEFORE YOU GO, OR DON'T GO. Find another restaurant that you will pay big but get more food for your money.More

Listen, people. This a prime example of service filling the gap where food might not be extraordinary. Went as a group for a birthday during winterlicious. Service is impeccable. Food was good. But the service, well the service goes a long way!

That schedule is uncomfortably tight, especially given Toronto traffic and the challenge of finding parking near the theatre.
