Don't go for a wide range of menu items but do go for some of the best oysters in the city. Licensed with beer and wine only.

One of my Favs

Ive been going to rodneys for several years. In my opinion you can't get a better oyster west of PEI than at rodneys. They're always fresh and professionally shucked. Im reading reviews that mention poor service, but have never experienced that myself, always average to great. I highly recommend for the seafood lover. If you or your dining partner isnt into seafood, definitley not the spot for you.

Food was good, but service ranged from non-existant to very rude. At some restaurants you can get away with that; this is definitely not one of them. Now that I have been looking around at reviews online, it seems that a lot of people have had this experience. People should vote with their feet and stop going to this place.

Atmosphere: sitting outside in the garden during the evening with loud construction noise coming from the street. Otherwise it's a nice little private area for the restaurant if you prefer to dine patio. Service: at points felt we were neglected... maybe cause they needed more servers inside the restaurant? Mediocre and it was not a busy night, was on a Tuesday evening. Food: food is on point as usual with fresh seafood. Unfortunately they didn't have any West coast oysters available when I dined.

We LOVE Rodney’s! It is one of our favourite 'go to' places for special occasions. Plenty of fabulous east and west coast fresh oysters. Started with 24 east coast mussels (PEI, N.B.,N.S. and Connecticut. And ordered another 24 PEI mussels...followed by tuna sashimi, key lime pie and creme brûlée. Never disappoints!

Unreal evening! Rodney's Oyster House has a garden that you would never believe existed - best kept secret in Toronto! I hosted a "summer social" there and it could not have been better. They took are of every little detail - all I had to do was show up and have fun! Food was amazing, wine was incredible and the atmosphere, being out side in the garden, was out of a movie. Thank you again Rodney's crew we will be coming back time and time again!!

We enjoyed our experience at the restaurant overall. Unfortunately the lobster we had was overcooked (the tail meat was very chewy + tough). Otherwise our meal was quite enjoyable, and the service was superb.

Our server was amazing. We had a few rambunctious kids with us and he kept them entertained and was exceptionally tolerant. Everyone there was actually. I was very impressed with all the employees there. The food was delicious too.

Had a very enjoyable evening at Rodneys. One negative. I made the reservation a month in advance and had asked for a nice table as we were celebrating a birthday. Sitting by the kitchen door and a serving station is not my idea of a nice table. In fact, it was probably the least desirable one in the restaurant. I'm sure the hostess could have done better than this.

Food, service, and atmosphere were excellent - they just miscounted how many oysters were put on our plate (we were shorted a few).

Food was great, our hostess was good too. Although when we arrived we were disappointed. I made reservation a few days ahead, even called in to speak to a staff named "Michael" to request the booth section. We were on the phone for a few minutes discussing which booth section and that he reserved one for us. We arrived and were told that, well, no booth for us. There was not even an offer or attempt to relocate us to our next option: a bigger table, even though there were a few empty ones just near by. Is it because we are Asians? I hope not. There was no customer service quality in accommodating us. Very disappointed.

Our bad, went to an oyster house thinking all seafood is great there. Stick with the oysters and chowder. Scallops and shrimp were no better than I can make at home.
