    Amazing experience and creative and delicious food. We were wowed (by the process it must of taken to come with each course to the end result) by each course The staff was amazing. Professional, knowledgeable, friendly. It’s like they knew what you wanted or were thinking before you did. Without any pretentiousness. The space is absolutely gorgeous and the tucked away location made it seem like a lot Mr get away. Pricey but will definitely be back

    It was raining, and a guy from the restaurant came out the door and greeted us, while shading between us and the door. He asked us about our reservation, while me and my gf enjoyed the rain. Other than that, the food was amazing, one of the best. The service was lovely.

    We visited Enigma for a birthday celebration. We were super excited to try this place out, especially since they received Michelin 1 star! It is pricey, and gratuity is automatically applied when you check out, but the service was outstanding. The servers and others who served our food were knowledgeable and extremely friendly. It was an amazing experience to try these tasting menus. Some flavours were too exotic for me, but I still enjoyed experiencing all of them! I would be down to go if the menu changes!

We drove all the way from NYC & back, the drive is well worth it. The chef & the staff made the atmosphere so welcoming. I’ve dined in other Michellin restaurants Enigma is on top of my list. Toronto, you didn’t disappoint. Fine dinning at its best without NYC price! I’m coming back again for sure!!!

    Excellent food, excellent wine pairing, one of the best we ever had. The chef is amazing and we enjoy each plate well presented by one of the sous-chef and eventually by the Chef himself. The food has an Asian flavour subtle and so well done. We recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

    I felt like a reservation of 6 should not be allowed in the current atmosphere. Our group likes to chat during our meals and had to do so over the table divide. It's understandable that we were told to hush, but not the best experience overall. The cocktail pairing was outstanding. The food was pretty good.

    Enigma YorkvilleResponded on April 13, 2023We kindly remind you that during the reservation process, we have informed you that our tables can only accommodate a maximum party of 5 guests. Despite this, you proceeded with the reservation, although we advised you that your group had to be split into two tables. As Enigma Yorkville is a cozy and intimate restaurant, we had to take measures to ensure that the volume of your conversations did not disturb our other guests. We thanks you for joining us. Kind regards Chef Owner Q.Bennett

    Best dining experience in Toronto for sure, very welcoming by friendly Chef & staff! Superb service you could have in Toronto. Elegant & chic interior design. Amazing foods that you can tell that Chef has put tons of efforts in making sure they are outstanding. If Enigma goes on the World’s top 50 restaurants list, I wouldn’t be surprised. Well executed in everything.

    Outstanding dinner. However, I would suggest that the valet not ask for a “tip” over above, and addition to the valet fee. This is inappropriate for a fine dining establishment. Neither is it customary and neither does anyone else in the city request a tip.

    Outstanding experience. We did chef table with 10 course blind menu. I was hesitant at first but it definitely did not disappoint. It was a variety of food with amazing drinks pairings. We picked the cocktails! I couldn’t eat raw meat and the chef was kind enough to accommodate that! Amazing experience! Would highly recommend if you’re into these things. We definitely walked out full!
