Oysters were ok but nothing great. The sauces were also ok. Service leads a lot to be desired. Slow and not knowledgeable. Would not go back.

The food was amazing - everything but the chowder.. I thought it was a bit soupy. Our oysters, scallops, fries, EVERYTHING we ate was TO DIE FOR. Great service and atmosphere.. I will definitely be back!

It was our first time here and we had the best experience! The food is absolutely amazing, the restaurant is not too loud, meaning you can have an actual conversation even when it’s super busy and the service was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely will be going back - such a treat!

This was our first time at this restaurant, and definitely won't be the last! We came here because we saw it was a well rated seafood restaurant and it delivered. The food was so delicious, staff was very friendly and they even took care of us with an absolutely delicious dessert for our 2 year anniversary. Will be back with friends, we've started spreading the word already.

I did not end up dining at Pearl Diver yesterday. Although I was able to successfully make a reservation for 3:30pm and receive a confirmation number, it was only upon my arrival that I was told only oysters and drinks would be served until 5:00pm. The kind hostess claimed she tried to call me to let me know but I showed her that no phone call was received on my cell. I was unable to dine as I am 5 months pregnant and was looking for cooked food (not raw). While the hostess seemed apologetic, the woman (who seemed to be a manager on duty) appeared indifferent about the mishap or uninterested about to inviting me back in another time, perhaps a dessert upon my next visit as a gesture of goodwill for the inconvenience. As a former restuarant manager myself, this was the most disappointing part.

The food and the service on a recent Friday for lunch was good. It was a lively atmosphere and busier than I remembered at lunch time. My only small complaint was that the lobster in my eggs benedict was not that tasty, though everything else on my plate was good. But my lunch companion raved about her cod and the salad that accompanied it. We would definitely eat here again.

Was able to get a last minute reservation for Wednesday night. The food was excellent. The table was beside the front door and there was a very cold draft every time the door was opened. Next time we go we will know to ask for a different location. The food and service were very good.

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.
