I will preface my review by stating that we always buy our fresh seafood from the store (located in the building behind the restaurant for those that don't know) since it is TOP quality. We have dined in the restaurant since it's opening, however, our most recent visit will probably be our last. The food IS good but the service... More

Looking like a typical strip-mall family restaurant we went with our young grand-children for dinner. They were very accommodating with highchairs and attention for the little ones. The menu, at first glance, appeared to be a bit pricey but the food quality and preparation were on point. For appetizers, we chose fresh oysters on the half shell, for which they... More

The food is extremely overpriced and low quality. You walk in and it smells like a fish market, which would be fine if we got good quality food. The fish portions were small, too oily and not appetizing. The service was mediocre to poor. Our meals had just been brought when we were handed the bill. We confronted the server... More

I'll keep this short. I buy most of my seafood at Dianas. Love the quality, freshness, selection etc. These same traits appear at the restaurant as well. Food quality is exceptional My issue is the atmosphere. For the pricing ( yes it's seafood i get it), I feel I should get more than a tired view of the parking lot... More

Had a family get together. The service and the dishes were excellent. Very imaginative cook . Only downside is we all had head aches the next day with the red wine. This is a pity as we all enjoyed the food.

Didn't have a lot of time but we felt like a quick drink and some oysters. The Sunday special was 12 malpeques for $15 (good deal) and they were very nice. We also ordered the oyster Rockefeller which was also very tasty. We have been here before and the oysters are always very fresh, the staff polite and knowledgeable. Only... More

We used to buy fish from the market; after 10 years of absence from the community, it's been a pleasure for me to have a seafood restaurant nearby. The atmosphere is nice, service is friendly and helpful. The food is fresh... The prices are a bit over than I expected. I definitely recommend for a dinner of two or any... More

I had know about this restaurant for many years, but had heard that was small and hard to get in. It is small but I had not trouble getting a reservation on the same day as we wanted to eat. I am sorry I had not dined here sooner since Scarborough does not have many fine seafood dining places. My... More

We go to this place a couple of time a year as it is closed to office. This time we made reservation as we went as a big group for lunch. The service was very slow from the beginning. It took them over 20 minutes to serve 4 dozens of oysters. They missed one main dish (gave to a wrong... More

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
