Fantastic evening. Service was splendid, and the kitchen everything it could to accommodate the gluten free and cilantro free dietary restrictions. Food, ambiance, service, wine, and cocktails were amazing!

The food was fantastic. Service left much to be desired. We didn’t have a server check up and do a water refill. In fact, not sure if we had a server at all. We had to ask for more water, plates and the bill. Weren’t even offered dessert.

We had the best girls night out. Food was sooo amazing! And the sharing element was perfect for a catch-up evening. Note: do read the instructions in the menu - it will help you navigate the menu and choose the foods that work best for you.

Wait staff was very attentive and, I have to say it again, the food was just amazing! The flavour combinations were to die for 👍❤️

Food was great and creative although the sushi/sashimi orders were small and pricey. Service and ambiance were just OK. Overall, the prices were sky high. I'd return but not often.

Very busy and cramped. Throughout the night, we had people squeezing through our table to go out.

We got served 40 mins from the time we were seated. Spent a total of 3 hours just to get served and eat.

The fire alarm went off towards the end and security stormed in, which killed the vibe.

HOWEVER, the food was incredible, so was the ambience. The cocktail menu was delightful and the cocktails were perfect.

Would definitely revisit on a less busy night/time.

It was very loud and the concept felt dated. Our table was also left dirty throughout the whole meal.

Hype and music does not a replace quality and gourmet food. As a restaurant Chatto should focus on getting the basic right then add on some fancy stuff.
The food was average at best.
Small portions and way overpriced.
They seems to be overstaff.
Waiters are desesperate to get you to buy drinks.
At this price point there are a lot of better option in Toronto.
Was excited to tried based on reviews however was very disappointed!

The food was amazing. All dishes are impressive, both presentation and taste. Love the ambience.. not too loud and not too quiet. The service is lovely. It’s just pricey for the portion but i guess you pay for the food and also good services etc.

It would have been nice if everyone at the table received their food at the same time. As it was, one person received three courses before others had received one! There was also some confusion about portion sizes, which left one person to order a very skimpy portion of seafood, thinking that it was entree size.

Scrumptious food and we were extremely satisfied. I highly recommend Lomo a la parilla, We topped off our meal with a delicious Peruvian chocolate crema 😋

I am going to start by saying g the food was outstanding. However, I feel a bit scammed. We I was in a group of 6, dinner prior to a concert. The server insisted the menu was too complicated for us to navigate and to let him "take care" of it. He didn't ask a budget and we were surprised with a near $1000 bill! It was unexpected and cost should have been discussed prior to the server order. Even though the food was excellent, I still walked away feeling a bit scammed.

An absolutely fantastic experience once again. The amazing ambiance, service and food constantly one up each other while also being complementary. The Nikkie fusion cuisine is incredibly unique with flavours ranging from spicy and Smokey to sweet and fragrant.

Great brunch place to go to with friends. Appetizers at the buffet was delicious. Slowed cooked beef was tender, moist and flavourful. Chicken marinated in Peruvian spices was ok. Chicken was not really marinated as the flavours would have been infused had it been vs just in the surface.

Excellent vibe and atmosphere. Good music and energy
