Real Seafood Company - Toledo Ratings and Reviews
Has been a while since we have been to this restaurant and were not disappointed. Seated promptly with reservation (not too busy) and service was prompt, friendly and helpful. All dishes were well prepared and as expected. This is a pricey restaurant for the Toledo area but not unreasonable. Some previous reviews were from busy holiday or special occasion times and our visit was on a weeknight. We did not sit outdoors but many were and seemed to enjoy themselves. We were very pleased with this restaurant.
The food and service was very good. I liked sitting outdoors, however, the furniture felt slightly underwhelming considering the food prices, etc. Table was wobbly and iron table/chairs were not really comfortable. However, it was gorgeous outside and the food/atmosphere/service made up for it.
This was a special birthday occasion. Five of us. Table was stuffed in next to a serving station. The table was set for six, they would not remove the sixth setting. Service was very slow. Over 40 mins between starters and main. Salads over dressed. Food luke warm, had clearly been stAnding before getting to the table. Wine over priced even by restaurant standards. I dine out 3-5 times a week. This is not to be recommended
Most of the food was delicious but there was a problem with my crab legs. For the price, I should have not received so many bitter top pieces. We go the typical song and dance about how the areas where these are fished are not available...blah blah.... I expected a bowl full of the main pieces and instead got garbage. Also, there were NO calamaria. Again, more of the song and dance about how they can't get the quality.... My son was incredibly disappointed.
Was looking forward to decent seafood. I guess I'm spoiled from living on the gulf coast. Portions were small and the king crab legs were more like snow crab. Even though the server was sweet, she took forever just to get drinks, our food was cold and our butter was cold, not good for dipping crab. They did comp one meal, so at least they are striving for better service, hats off to the blonde manager for suggesting that. They need to decide if they are fine dining or casual and not act like they are fine dining with mediocre food and service. I will never go back for dinner, find some local spot, but I may do lunch on the patio.overall it seemed more like a chain restaurant
Went for my girlfriend's 30th birthday. We had a blast. Lisa was great. She let us have time to talk before dinner, and everything was super prompt and delicious when it came time to dinner. The food was wonderful.
It gets pretty sunny near the patio. That was the only negative. We had to move our seats around when the sun was setting as it was directly in our eyes. Beautiful view though.
Rarely will I say the a restaurant with 3 star food deserves more that 3 stars. This is one of those cases. We were in town for my son's university graduation. I made a reservation for 7 at 5 PM. As it turned out two of my children we going to be late into town. I called the restaurant at 1:00 PM to see if they could accommodate the changes. Initially, Kelly indicated that this would not be possible, but then asked if we were ok being upstairs. I indicated yes, and she rescheduled our party.
I will address the food first, in that it was good, but not great. We got the cold seafood platter, and while I believe all the seafood was fresh, the lobster had clearly be stored in too much ice, as it had frozen and we had to eat lobstercicles. Additionally, the oysters were very small, and not properly shucked ( I love me some oysters). The steaks that three of us had were good, but not great, and the paella and jambalaya were good as well. My asparagus was lukewarm at best, but had good flavor.
*Where the stars were earned**
I cannot overstate how perfect the table we received was. It was plenty large enough, and secluded so we could enjoy ourselves and take plenty of pictures without bothering anyone. Our waiter was wonderful and accommodating, and the manager came over to makes all was going well. All in all, a wonderful experience.
This was the 1st time dining at Real Seafood, busy place.....the food was outstanding, very tasteful. A little pricey on the appetizers - size vs $$ amount. The server was good however, he spoke too fast, not loud enough & with that being said we could not understand or hear what he had to say regarding the menu and or specials.
Overall a good experience, will return again.
The food was great as always. The service was great as always. I used to work there a long time ago so I know how it is run from the backend and they have a high standard of quality. My only complaint is they took one of my favorite items off of the menu, fried clam strips. They were amazing and I don't understand why they removed them. But, my entree was still amazing! Real Seafood will always be the place to go when I go back to visit Toledo. I would highly recommend it!
My wife and I always go to Real Seafood on our birthdays and get the crab legs. However, this time the crab legs were different. They are usually straight crab leg segments, but this time there were some crab leg segments and a lot of knuckles, which aren't as sweet and tasty.
We love Real Seafood, but we won't get the crab legs again.
My husband and I went for our anniversary. It was our first time there and I'm not sure we would have gone there had it not been that I had received a gift card at Christmas from my employer. We went on a Thursday night and had a reservation but didn't need one. We stopped in the bar and had a drink before dinner since it was happy hour - they should extend the specials to the restaurant section as well as the bar. My husband had a beer and I had their special martini which was incredibly weak. For dinner I ordered the crab cakes because of the reviews I had previously read. I was disappointed as they were very bland. The only saving grace was the sauce they were served with. I will say the blue cheese coleslaw was very good (although my husband would have liked more blue cheese flavor) and the cheesy hashbrowns were very tasty. My favorite part of the meal was the creme brulee for dessert! The ambience was nice because we were seated next to the fireplace and still had a view of the river. The restaurant offers specials if it is your birthday (1/2 off the birthday persons meal) but it would have been nice if they would have offered something for other celebrations (maybe a 1/2 off dessert or appetizer).
We probably won't be going back any time soon as the quality and quantity of the food does not warrant the prices they charged.
My wife and I consider this to be our favorite Toledo restaurant. The menu is huge, but we have tried many of the offerings. The food is consistently of the highest quality, and the service is attentive and efficient. Come on your birthday and you'll get a very nice surprise!
