Had a wonderful dinner last Saturday. The service was, as always, outstanding. The martinis were well mixed and strong just as I like them. But the real magic happened on the plate or should I say, plates. My wife and I shared various startes from the oysters à la portugaise serves au gratin with chouriço (luscious), to fabulous shrimps from... More

I have never been disappointed with Ferreira. The food is exceptional, wine list is plentiful and service is wonderful. The servers know their menu, the specials and they know their wine list. Staff is friendly, accommodating and always smiling. Is it cheap? Nope. But I can honestly say that it is worth every single penny. Every single time.

One of the best seafood rests I have ever been worldwide; grilled octopus is excelent; but too noise, almost impossible to carry on conversation.

The service and food are exceptional. You are greeted promptly, seated immediately and served with alacrity. Have visited this restaurant several times and the quality is consistent.

Fresh seafood, prepared very well. I was surprised how well they accommodated our three young children (seating, splitting a main course) among the more business-like clientele. Service was attentive but not the fastest I've had. The octopus, oysters, chicken, giant shrimp, and the fish of the day were all dishes we enjoyed. Noise levels are high but the music is... More

We had a lovely early meal here on New Year's Eve - spent a bundle with no regrets. The server was very informative about the wine list, since we don't know much about Portuguese wines or ports, and did not treat us like morons. (I realize that sets a fairly low bar!) The atmosphere was warm and charming, a perfect... More

On a very cold late December night we made a short right down Peel Street to Ferreira. The ambiance was romantic. Everything about the interior bespeaks quality. The fish was fresh and very well prepared. The fried calamari was succulent, not oily or rubbery. The Beausoleil oysters from New Brunswick were so fresh they practically slapped us. Service was flawless,... More

We have been eating here once or twice a year over many years. The food was great, as usual. The wine selection very nice. Fantastic decor. The only problem is the noise level! Why crank up the music so loud? My ears are still ringing. Very difficult to have a conversation and enjoy the food(which was great by the way).... More

Very good seafood with distinct Portuguese touch modified for North American tastes. Attempt to create hip atmosphere spoiled by distracted and erratic service. Gone are the days when servers were able to tell what Portuguese words actually meant. Service was so erratic that I refused to pay full tip, only to be insulted by server.
