We were a group of 4, no reservations and we were seated promptly. Terrific service, prices are on par with other establishments, and the food was absolutely great. We all had Haddock and Chips and I had one of the beer specials. The fish was...plentiful, cooked perfectly and the batter was thin and crisp. Waitress was friendly, very efficient and knowledgeable. Two of us had the apple crisp, and the other two had the sherry trifle for desert - all delicious. The decor inside is very warm and comfortable, much like you would find in an English pub. There is a ramp at the back entrance for anyone who requires that. We all gave it 5 stars and will definitely be back, as there are many items on the menu that we're tempted to try.More

Last evening (July 30) three of us visited the Olde Yorke for the first time since COVID19. We had forgotten how outstanding this hidden gem in Leaside is. Maitre d' showed us to a patio table immediately (at 6 pm! we were lucky no wait...likely bc its a long weekend). We started with cold pints and calamari cooked to perfection and sizzling off the grill. Our three order of halibut and chips were hot, crispy (no detectable grease) and toothsome. The fish was soft and succulent with batter that complemented it. Tartar sauce on the side. Service was impeccable: prompt and pleasant. No room left to try dessert but maybe next time. We'll be back for the best fish 'n chips in Toronto. J. LermanMore

We enjoyed the fish calamari and clams with family. Service was fast, servings were generous and food was excellent. The breading was not overpowering or too thick and the sauces complemented the food. Worth several visits 👍🏼

I read recently that British Fish and Chips shops have had a 70% increase in their cost for halibut. The article continued to say that many F&C shops in Great Britanin have been forced to close because customers refuse to pay the increased cost. Olde...Yorke will face the same fate as the prices are far greater than the value of the food. If you can't give the customer a quality product at a reasonable price, it is not the customer's fault.More

No reservations. 2 hours from joining the line up to receiving food. Reduced option menu. No Kilkenny beer. 2 of the orders sent to the table wrong. What a waste of an evening !! I am now stopping going to any restaurant that doesn’t take...reservations!! It’s one of the BIG downsides of Toronto !! Line-up and wait ….. brunches & casual dining impossible in this city !!More

Went into the olde yorke fish and chips two weeks before Good Friday to ask when we should make a order for take out for Good Friday, we asked to speak to a manager to make sure we knew the process. The manager said we...needed to physically come into the store exactly a week before Good a Friday, so a week before Good Friday we went in, we were then told it was too early to come back the next day (Saturday) so we did, they said to come back Monday, we came back Monday night to be told we had to call in on Tuesday, we were not given a time on Tuesday to call in so I called at 1145 on my lunch break. We were told it was all sold out for Friday. I asked to speak to a manager, they said they’ll call us back. 6 hours later we still didn’t hear anything so I called again and waited to speak to a manager, they said we should get a call from the owner, we never received a call. I know it’s a small business, we love the food it’s why we wanted to order but this was a lot of work to eventually be told too bad you called in too late, but we went in two weeks before Good Friday to ask for the process of ordering for Good Friday and was given wrong information, we did receive an apologize but after I told them I needed to escalate the situation, not before hand.More

Didn't expect a full house with people waiting in the cold to get in, on a Wednesday night. Very popular place. Given my meal I understand why. Service was excellent. Maitre'd worked hard for a table for me, just one in line of couples and...more. I took a chance on the cod. My Toronto experience with cod fish and chips has been spotty. So, I usually order the Halibut. This time, the ambiance and large crowd convinced me to try the cod and save $6 to boot. It was worth it. At Olde Yorke their cod and chips will make you think your cod was freshly pulled from the cold salty water off the Grand Banks of Nova Scotia. It was firm, yet delicate, and with a crispy batter that enhanced the whole experience. Taste and texture perfect. The coleslaw side was excellent. Though, the chowder needs a lot of work, it's no different than any other seafood restaurant in Toronto. Seems nobody in Toronto knows the recipe. I'll be back.More

I used to sing the praises of Olde Yorke. But no more. My favorite dish there, the Seafood Platter (with Haddock, Shrimps and Scallops) has increased about 25%. I ordered three club soda, which came from a machine and cost the restaurant a few pennies....I was charged $2.50 each. The total with tip and tax was over $10.00. The total bill with an extra piece of Halibut and a caesar salad was $80.00 with tip and tax. Retirees make up the bulk of their business. How can they afford these prices? Imagine if you dare to order a couple of pints. I may go back once or twice a year, but not regularly. The prices are far greater than the value. There's a limit to what people will pay for comfort food, no matter how good.More

A friend and I were looking forward to a great dish of fish and chips. When our plates arrived they looked delicious and inviting. The chips and coleslaw were very good.. the haddock and halibut seemed large enough.. until we cut into them.. the fish...was thin and buried in this thick coating of batter.. For the price, we basically paid well over $20 dollars for fries, coleslaw and batter!! I do not think we will be back again.More

Coming from the UK (which I deem the home of good fish & chips) I was a little apprehensive about having fish & chips in Canada, but I needn’t have worried as the cod at this place was amazing - easily as good as the...best in the UK. Chips could have been cut a little thicker but I’m being fussy. Must also say that our waitress was outstanding - really polite, friendly and helpful. Also pleased to see they had Heinz ketchup on the tables!More
