Prime Seafood Palace is a contemporary restaurant inspired by Matty Matheson's East Cost roots and love for architecture. Conceptualized as a light-filled cathedral, lining an otherwise inconspicuous brick-clad building that blends into Toronto's urban fabric. The restaurant's sourcing and menu demonstrate an intentional manner that elevates the traditional steakhouse concept.

    The staff truly made this experience above and beyond. Shout out to Vince the host, and servers Emilio and Hannah. Truly the ambiance and diner experience were top shelf. If you want to talk about what really sent the overall experience miles above the rest the staffs friendly and charming conversation plus knowledgeable staff gave Prime seafood palace a comfortable and home like vibe. Like talking with old friends or even family!!

    Fantastic experience! We travelled from Ottawa & made it through the snowstorm for our reso and it was so worth it! You really get the 5 star service here, and the food is amazing! the only thing was - some of the veggie options a vegetarian would think to order like the potatoes are cooked in duck fat, and carrot tart also uses a meat bouillabaisse. Just to be aware of these things when thinking of bringing your vegetarian buds. Thankfully they were willing to alter the carrot tart for our veggie friend, so we were very happy. Will 💯 come back in a heartbeat next time we’re in town.

    Amazing food, staff and atmosphere! Food was simple and subtle which allows the ingredients shine. Food is locally sourced farm to table and is super fresh. The bone-in striploin with the demi-glace compliments each other very very well, take a bite and just let the flavours dance in your mouth. Finished dinner off with a Sassicaia grappa was the cherry on top.

    Nothing but amazing things to say. This restaurant embodies all of the great things that make the character of Matty Matheson and his food come to life. The architecture and design is synonymous with the food as a full, yummy dining experience. The thick cut pork belly bacon was out of this world...get there soon for it before it drops from the rotating menu. A must-go restaurant!!

    The dishes were not elevated enough to justify the price. I eat at the best restaurants in the city and have no problem paying high prices for unique and delicious food but the food just wasn't where it should be for the price.

    Well worth the wait trying this place. I was in town from vancouver and so excited to finally eat here. Everything was incredible. Even my friend i went with who isnt fond of seafood love everything she tried. Our server was outstanding, charming and made sure we were having the best time. Be ready to spend money though! I promise its worth it!

    We were graced with a really rude standoffish server. She def had an attitude. She didnt really help with the menu and kept cutting us off to attend to other tables. She said the plates were sharable so we got a 20oz steak and she decided to throw shade by saying we are just having a small dinner. At that point i kind of lost my appetite. We asked another server if the food we ordered was ok. And inquired about the meat temp- which i found odd that our server didnt care to ask- when we asked her, she said its med rare by default and walked away. I got anxiety as i decided to share a steak with my hubby but we both like different temps. Anyways i can go on forever about how incredibly horrible dinner was for is. I def wont come back or recommend. I will stick to harbour 60. Btw The music was too loud. I would say food was okay. The chocolate cake was very thick and dry. However/ Everyone else other than our server was really nice and attentive. Sadly after all this i really didint cafe for the nice decor or the nice washroom.

    This was our second time. The first time was when it first opened. Then the Vibe was cool, young and hip and exciting. The first visit we focused on the seafood and we’re in love with the place. This trip was a a different vibe and experience. Quite frankly, The clientele sucked. We were seated between an obnoxious drunk junior level lawyer trying to one up everyone at the table. We get it, you lived in London for a few years and your dad know the coach of the islanders. The table on the other side was a plastic surgery mannequin whose date arrived an hour late then spent the entire meal complaining about the fact that the really kind server told them they only had a 2 hour seating. He also complained to the manager and was pretty rude to the server telling her to pick what he should eat and if he doesn’t like it he’ll never come back. I get it though, they can’t control who visits. The food was hit or miss. Like I said, first time there was a home run on all levels. Thai time not so much. The sea urchin toast was a weird size. Too big for finger food, but do I use a knife and fork? It was good. Not $100 good. The smoked trout on the buttermilk waffle was amazing. Fantastic. The palace bacon as well. The bone-in Striploin was run of the mill. Nothing special at all, if even a bit too charred. The smoked carrot tart was a total nothing burger, while we fought over who go to finish the cabbage schnitzel. We were really excited to have the key lime pie again, as it was a favourite last time. It was served with a steak knife because the crust was so hard a fork wouldn’t go through it…. Lastly our server was great and the FOH staff is and was last time very professional. Was it worth over $700 after tax and tip? No. Sadly I think our second trip to PSP will be out last.

    A refined take on a steakhouse with elevated seafood and vegetable dishes. Food is delicious and visually appealing, plated without a hint of pretentiousness, but still playful at times. Would have liked to see the beer list include more local independent breweries. Aside from that, the drinks list has well curated options for everyone. Service is exceptional. Staff know the menu inside and out. You can trust them to make your experience seamless and satisfying.
