Fantastic from beginning to end, a dozen oysters on special for 18 dollars were too good to not order a second round, impeccable fish and chips and seafoods, plus an outstanding burger such as we haven't had in ages in any restaurant,combined with perfect spot-on service added up to a memorable Fathers Day meal. Strongly recommended and for sure we will be back.

We went here for the first night of our honeymoon, the food was great and so was the beer but it was the service that really stood out, they really made a fuss of us because it was our honeymoon and we had such a good night we went back the next night too.

Was looking for a seafood place for father's day and found this gem. Great oyster special (dozen for $18) and AWESOME service. The restaurant wasn't busy at all and I have no clue why. The food, amazing. The service, top notch. Location/atmosphere, perfect. We had tons of oysters, the burger, oyster benny, and the shrimp po boy and EVERYTHING was amazing. The burger was TDF! Can't wait to come back!!

The music was a tad loud for conversation. Biggest issue was reserving a table by the front window, receiving a reply of no problem and walking in seeing that both tables are taken forcing us to sit elsewhere. Frustrating. That's two visits with two issues. Three times the charm?

We had oysters, lunch plates, and fish & chips. Every dish is good. However, the first table we sat had a died fly on it. The staff should pay more attention on hygiene.

I booked the private room as we were there before and enjoyed playing some vinyl and having sing alongside. I hope was very disappointed that we didn't get it. If I'd known before hand we would have gone elsewhere as we can get just as good food & service way closer to us.

Asked for sparkling water. Got a whole bottle for one person. Could have been better at explaining the size of it. Had to ask for bill. Service was ok. Food was very good.

Great place, fantastic food and lovely wait staff. From the moment we sat down our waiter was attentive and very helpful. But most of all the food was fantastic. Not a big lover oysters and the such but the way they were prepaired, wow, I think I ate more then my husband did. The goat cheese salad was by far one of the best I have had and the pacific grey cod was done to perfection. It was our anniversary and the wait staff went out of there way to make the night memorable. 10 put of 10 for sure.

Great food, great service. Restaurant was wonderful, definitely will be returning often for any sort of formal functions I have! My friends got a kick out of the vintage record player in the back of the restaurant. Keep up the good work guys.

Impeccable service- amazing oysters and calamari. Thursday special of 100 oysters for $100. was perfect (if not indulgent) for two. Since every restaurant can improve I will offer two minor suggestions. Fries should be longer and wine should be cheaper. Will return for sure as Pearl Diver is one of our favourite restaurants.

Excellent, excellent. Pearl Diver is awesome. Fantastic food, excellent oysters. Service was attentive, friendly and was quick with all our requests. Pearl Diver is a high end seafood restaurant with a casual non-pretentious atmosphere that you can even take your children to. We will glady be recommending Pearl Diver and can't wait to go back.

Excellent from top to bottom. The only small irrelevant "complain" is that the portions were somewhat small, but I understand it is seafood and we are downtown TO. We will be back Giorgio & Stefani

Mollusk marvels: The best oyster bars in Toronto

Mollusk marvels: The best oyster bars in Toronto

Once known as Starfish Oyster Bar, Pearl Diver is a new incarnation of the popular restaurant. Continuing to specialize in oysters and ocean-wise seafood, this restaurant has taken on a more casual feel and lowered their prices considerably. If you're a true oyster aficionado, try the oyster beer on tap (it's made from over 1500 oysters!).

Indulge at the Toronto Food and Wine Festival

Food and Wine veterans know all about the must-try oysters on offer at the festival each year, and we’re especially keen on the New Brunswick Shemogue oysters brought in by Pearl Diver. The Entertainment District seafood house is a neighbourhood go-to for fine fish dishes (from pan-seared pickerel to made-just-right moules frites). The spot also brings their chicken and oyster pâté for more daring samplers.
