Great Food, Surprisingly Sub-par Service

Dined 5 days ago

Our family has enjoyed this restaurant for decades. The food is always excellent and the service was always fantastic. However, this particular experience left us disappointed in the service provided by our waiter. Looking around at the service professionals that we have come to know and love over the years, we are hoping that this was an isolated incident. In the future, we will ask for our favorite waiters and waitresses by name.

Service over the top. ambiance great. Swordfish not so hot this visit. Gristle in the middle and edges hard. I am sure this is just a fluke. Normally we go to Real Seafood for this dish which is always fantastic

Dined on April 22, 2016

My wife and I had a wonderful evening. Every bite of food we ate was nothing short of delicious. We were celebrating many things which our server got down pat (from the person who seated us) before he even greeted us. The seater and the server were both celebratory of our (both female) wedding anniversary which was nice. The only thing I would have changed is a busser referred to my wife as "sir" as he removed our plates. It happens from time to time, but we had gotten off to such a good start that we thought we were going to make it through without incident. If only people would take a moment to look at the person they're speaking to. Otherwise, the service was great, the food was some of the best I've ever had, and the atmosphere was lovely.

Dined on April 21, 2016

Went to dinner with friends from out of town . All the food we had was absolutely perfect . The calamari was great and the clams were outstanding . Two of us had scallops they were perfectly cooked . The lake perch was really good as always . One of us had a seasonal special of halibut and it was really really good . One of our visitors is used to having it fresh if she is a resident of Alaska . Being a skeptic she tried it and highly approved! Also the crème brûlée is the best in town ! Our friends liked it so much they went back the next night with other people.

Wonderful evening!

Dined on April 16, 2016

It had been quite a long time since I had visited this restaurant and I was very impressed that things were still as good as they always had been! We had guests in from out of town who wanted seafood and everything we ate was spectacular! The sesame crusted ahi tuna melted in my mouth and I can't wait to go back and have it again. My husband had raw oysters and and said they were the best he has ever eaten. All the appetizers were equally as good and our guests were very pleased with the meals they had. My only complaint is the noise level. It was very loud, and made it difficult to have a conversation at a larger table.

Not the best experience I've had here

Dined on April 16, 2016

I had made a reservation about a week before thru Open Table, specifically requesting a special booth as our group was celebrating a birthday. When we arrived there, the booth had been seated for another party and we were forced to wait 90 minutes in the bar, since we didn't want to sit at a table. The host admitted they "did not notice" the special booth request that I had made when I made the reservation. The assistant manager bought 1 round of drinks for 2 of the 6 people in our party while we waited in the bar. When finally seated in the booth, the lobster one of the people in our party ordered was simply awful. It was tough, overcooked and tasted as though it had been sitting around already cooked for hours. He brought this to our server's attention and it was promptly replaced with a much better lobster tail. Our server seemed tired and not all that excited to be there, which pretty much mimicked how I felt after sitting in the bar for an hour and a half before finally getting seated in the restaurant. Overall, a rather disappointing visit compared with my numerous previous visits.

Dinner in Toledo

Dined on April 16, 2016

We met my wife's parents at the restaurant to celebrate my father in-laws birthday. It was a little slow as far as getting our food but there really was no issue. It was busy and our server, Nate, stayed on lop of things. We were explained the birthday deal, but we not able to take advantage of the offer. My father in-laws birthday was the next day. All in all, it was a good time and the food was good. Thank you, Mark

Worth the money.

My wife and I dined her for a date night. With our reservation, we were able to walk right in and get a table. Food was outstanding (well worth the price) and our waitress was very helpful. She even brought my wife more scallops because she did not think there were enough in the original serving.

Pricey

Dined on April 14, 2016

We had reservations and when we arrived there were only about 3-4 tables that were full. They sat us directly next to another table of customers who were quite loud. We could have been seated in the same section but at an alternate table that was not right next to us. We waited nearly 20 minutes for our server to come to the table and she only did when my daughter got up to go to the host stand and ask if we were going to have a server. One server noticed and came over. The food was very good but also, very expensive. I didn't expect to pay over $150. for 4 people to eat. Won't be back any time soon.

We LOVE Real Seafood. This visit my blackened Salmon was not blackened very well. Also, we were at a odd shaped table across from the bar that made our dinner conversation with dear friends almost awkward. I would think it is too big for a table of four. Everything else was great.

This became one of my favorite places traveling back and forth to Michigan. It is also a good halfway point for Cleveland and Akron folks if you need to meet up with someone from Michigan. In the summer they have great outdoor seating on the water and it is relaxing, food is always top notch as is service.

The food was wonderful and the staff was very friendly. I was afraid to take our newborn because it was such a nice restaurant and quiet atmosphere, and I was worried that the other guests without children would be uncomfortable. I was quite relieved when we walked in the door and saw 3 other couples with their newborns waiting to be seated.

Very Nice Holiday Dinner

Dined on February 14, 2016

It was good to see the place busy (but not over-crowded) on Valentine's Day. One of my and my wife's favorite restaurants in Toledo, and we were again very pleased with the evening. Excellent wait staff (attentive, but not pushy or "hovering"), very fine food, a nice bottle of wine that we hadn't tried before (and were well pleased with), and a lovely shared bite of chocolate desert.

One of our favorites

Dined on February 14, 2016

There are many places to have dinner in Toledo, this night I chose Real Seafood because we like it. We have NEVER had a "so-so" waiter, they are all amazing. I overheard our waiter telling another table what kind of cheese was on their salad, and it wasn't cheddar! We had reservations thru Open Table and were seated on time. Our last visit was in the summer and we sat outside which is looking at the river, last week we saw the river but it on the other side of an overhead door. We will be back!

Dined on February 13, 2016

Good, but I've had better here. We came for my mother's birthday which is always a great deal. I wish I lived in town so I could celebrate my birthday here every year. I got the whole lobster and it was a little over cooked to my liking. I had higher expectations since it's the REAL Seafood Company. I decided to get their soup of the day - cream of mushroom, which was probably the best I've ever had. Ingredients were really fresh. I usually have a good experience here but this time the food and service weren't on par. Hopefully next time.

I enjoyed a great evening with my significant other and my parents a few days before Valentines Day. The service was awesome and food was good as usual. After my parents left, me and my girlfriend traveled closer to the bar and shared dessert and enjoyed the live music. This was the cherry on top! The musicians even asked if we had any requests -AWESOME, RELAXING TIME!

Master Seafood Restaurant

Dined on February 8, 2016

Walking into the Real Seafood Company is like walking into a fine dining atmosphere. The staff are very professional and knowledgeable about menu. It does not feel so upscale that you are not allowed to have fun and joke with your friends. Their position on the dock provides a great view of the river and city of Toledo. you could watch the boats as they go up and down the river. The seafood is some of the best I have ever tasted, and in large portions. You do not have to worry about leaving hungry, or not getting your moneys worth. A dinners usually start around $24 dollars. This is a place to take business clients that you want to impress, or the place to ask your girl friend the question while you show her the ring you bought for her. Your first time here you will be impressed.

Real Seafood has a nice atmosphere and great service. They make you feel quite special and appreciated. Their bread is terrific, and so is their coffee. Salads and cole slaw are tasty. One of the main fish dishes, the arctic char, was too oily for my taste.
