Food size shrank (risotto) and only 1 fried oyster instead of 2. Dish shrank compared to a few months ago. Service was bad. Waiter does not ask how the food was. Does not refill water and only came by to ask if we want dessert. Another waitress come by and drops the dirty fork on my wife's clothing. Not friendly... More

Wow, such as lovely seafood, and even they have a seafood market in the back of the resturant, the oysters are great, the starter plater is wow, the octopus is lovely. The main courses are excellent, seafood Roseto is something out of here. You need to try the food here.

I was told about this restaurant by a friend and went at her urging. I am not sure that I would go out of my way to go here. Meal was fresh and well prepared, but the service lacked personality or care. If you are in the area its worth a stop, but not worth the drive if you are... More

I will preface my review by stating that we always buy our fresh seafood from the store (located in the building behind the restaurant for those that don't know) since it is TOP quality. We have dined in the restaurant since it's opening, however, our most recent visit will probably be our last. The food IS good but the service... More

Looking like a typical strip-mall family restaurant we went with our young grand-children for dinner. They were very accommodating with highchairs and attention for the little ones. The menu, at first glance, appeared to be a bit pricey but the food quality and preparation were on point. For appetizers, we chose fresh oysters on the half shell, for which they... More

The food is extremely overpriced and low quality. You walk in and it smells like a fish market, which would be fine if we got good quality food. The fish portions were small, too oily and not appetizing. The service was mediocre to poor. Our meals had just been brought when we were handed the bill. We confronted the server... More

I'll keep this short. I buy most of my seafood at Dianas. Love the quality, freshness, selection etc. These same traits appear at the restaurant as well. Food quality is exceptional My issue is the atmosphere. For the pricing ( yes it's seafood i get it), I feel I should get more than a tired view of the parking lot... More

Had a family get together. The service and the dishes were excellent. Very imaginative cook . Only downside is we all had head aches the next day with the red wine. This is a pity as we all enjoyed the food.

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
