Delicious!!! The oyster selection is great and having a selection you can really see the difference in flavours. This is my preferred restaurant in toronto for oysters. It is, however, very different from the Vancouver Rodneys - Vancouver is loud, lively and boisterous... Toronto is...More

After reading all the reviews was so excited. Our waitress Carly was excellent. Well that's where it ended. Clams were way over cooked! Soup was bland. Chowder had way too much salt. We left hungry as most of the food was inedible. Also too expensive!

We unfortunately arrived after the kitchen closed but they were happy to accommodate us with oysters. Great service, fresh oysters and the chocolate mousse was wonderful.

We sat at the bar while we waited for our patio table and struck up a conversation with the bartender about all the different types of oysters they carried. We learned that ice cold water makes for a great oyster and boy were these good!...More

Andy; We don't have a standard Surf and Turf dish on our menu. We will put one on our 'White Plate Specials' from time to time, but in general, if that's your hankering, bring a friend, and order a lobster (1.5-2lbs) and a... More

First, happy pending birthday. We're about a 5 minute stumble from the Thompson - very close, and I'm sure they'll take good care of you. We don't typically broil oysters (we do something like that with live scallops, but... More

Rodney Clark has been offering oysters to the masses in Toronto for over 30 years. Our selection changes daily, but we carry on average 12-18 different varieties from around the world. We also strive to offer the finest in fresh seafood, sourced from sustainable fisheries - as we work primarily with fresh product, you'll have to come down and see what's coming through our doors this week.
