Food is awesome and the servers are very friendly. The seafood tower is so fresh and delicious. Whenever we would like to have oysters and seafood, we will definitely go to this restaurant. Their burgers are also amazing!! The Korean mackerel and sides is another strong recommendation. We love this place!

Three of us celebrated a friend's birthday in style starting with a fantastic happy hour of oysters and drinks. Pearl Diver is our favourite spot in the city for oysters because of the wide variety of super fresh oysters from all over the world. When the kitchen opened at 5, we ordered fries, gravlax and fried shrimp - all freshly prepared and delicious. It wasn't our first time here and it certainly won't be our last!

The BEST seafood in the city. This was our second time dining at Pearl Diver. Thinking we may have just gotten lucky the first time, we thought we'd try it again. The second time was even better! The service is incredible. The food is outstanding. Highly recommend the fried calamari and the fish and chips! The shrimp cocktail is also amazing with very tasty home made cocktail sauce. We WILL be back again!

The seafood tastes good and fresh. It is expensive though for the portion size served. $9 for a small bowl of soup. $20 for the appetizer scallops (includes 3 standard size scallops - seared nicely). When compared to seafood entree (linguine) at Italian resturant costs $30 with lots of seafood, the portion here is small. All the main course is roughly $30-$45 and not a lot of selection. Me and my partner wanted to get their main course fish, but did not like bone in fish nor tandoori (strong taste) sauce covering the fish.

I haven't been back to Pearl Diver in probably a year or so. I really enjoyed the meal and the service. The food was great including of course the freshly shucked oysters. The service was prompt and friendly. I will definitely return again soon and not wait so long in between visits.

I usually have a great time here, however this experience was not so great. The Norweigian trout was completly raw so our server took it back to the kitchen. Instead of re-doing the order and making a new plate of food...the kitchen simply just re-heated the fish and then smushed all the food back together on the same plate. We didnt end up eating the food, because we were so grossed out by the fact that management encourages the kitchen staff to touch the food and re-make it up, rather than simply re-making the order. This used to be one of my favorite restaurants, however I find it odd that management encourages this and not sure if I feel comfortable visiting again

Nearby location near the office and the core that we've always wanted to check out. The food and the atmosphere did not disappoint. We were situated in the back room, so had more privacy but the place was quite busy. Prices were reasonable and everything from the oysters to the lava cake was delicious. Will definitely be back.

I celebrated my birthday there and they remembered that’s what I said during my reservation. We were really happy with the oysters and ended up ordering 3 dozen to share between us :) the shrimp po boy and calamari were also good. I loved it, thank you for the cake treat! JJ

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.
