Wow. Freshness everywhere. Great service, great menu, and the best oysters I've had EVER! The restaurant is no frills, but don't let that fool you. The quality of oysters, plus the variety, will leave u feeling like a walking oyster. And the service is second to none. Friendly, helpful and full of great oyster knowledge. I can't wait to go...

She smiled and guarnteed we'd love them and the 1st 6 were on the house! She coached us on how to eat them and we were not disappointed!... More

One of my favorite places in town. When you are thinking to have just thousand oysters from the 4 corners of the world, you can only think about Oysterboy. Service is just great.

I think this is a hidden gem, and part of me doesn't want to review this so it stays that way. Its all about the Oysters that are shucked as you order, so sit yourself down, get yourself a drink and wait for the magic to happen. The other food is average but also it is priced average. For me,... More

Wow, what can I say. The restaurant is so welcoming, the staff very friendly. The oysters are first class, well worth a visit whilst in Toronto.

Started with the oysters. Big, tasty, salty, umami. Smashed these with some horseradish, Tobasco and vinegar. How to beat this? I guess a lobster roll fits the bill - the sweet taste of the lobster worked well with the sweet roll. The restaurant was a relaxed affair, I felt chilled not rushed.

We tried one of each oysters on the menu - an even dozen from PEi, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and BC. We scored and ranked them and then ordered more of our favourites. Service was great and so was the ambiance. And the freshest oysters anywhere. Highly Recommended!!!

I really enjoyed my meal here. They have very fresh oysters from west and east coast. The staff was very friendly and helpful. . They even are a supplier of oysters to over 150 restaurants in Toronto so you know their product is fresh. Their stock changes day to day depending on what is available, in season, etc. They aren't... More
