Executive chef: Quinton Bennett

  • Award icon

    MICHELIN 1 Star

    2022

White-glove service and a state-of-the-art open kitchen spell luxury at this MICHELIN-starred, special-occasion gem. But it’s executive chef Quinton Bennett’s unexpected but winning combos—which have previously included silky egg custard with poached lobster or fried kale and cabbage with shaved foie gras and Parmesan dust—that place Enigma in a league of its own.

    The atmosphere is nice and quiet. Food very delicious and memorable. We had the ten course tasting menu, which is quite a lot of food. The paired drinks are also very nice, but ten drinks is also quite a lot. Overall it is a unique and pleasant experience that is worth trying out at least once if you're in Toronto.

    INCREDIBLE is the only way to describe our meal at Enigma. The cuisine is pure genius - so interesting, innovative, artistic and bursting with flavours. This is Michelin star cheffing at its best anywhere in the world. The wine pairings were perfect and then there was the fascinating non-alcoholic creations which were an experience in themselves. The service is excellent and makes you feel such valued guests. Can't wait to return to this top in Toronto !!

    Nestled in the heart of the city's vibrant culinary scene, Enigma presents an unforgettable dining experience that transcends the traditional boundaries of gastronomy. From the moment you step through its doors, you're enveloped in an atmosphere of exclusivity and sophistication that hints at the culinary odyssey to come.The service at Enigma is nothing short of remarkable. A professionalism and passion, navigated us through the evening with a blend of attentive care and an almost prescient understanding of our needs. The staff's commitment to creating a memorable experience was evident in every detail.But it's the cuisine that truly sets Enigma apart. Each dish is a masterpiece, a testament to the chef's artistry and innovation. The menu, a carefully curated journey of flavors, textures, and aromas, showcases the finest ingredients in presentations that are both visually stunning and delightfully unexpected. From the delicate interplay of savory and sweet to the bold contrasts of texture and temperature, each course was a revelation, a work of art that pleases the palate as much as it delights the eye.

    Had one of the best meals of my life here- and I've been to multiple Michelin-starred restaurants- and I would highly recommend! We did the high end wine pairings and it was worth it. The courses were all hits with no misses and the service was phenomenal- everyone really goes ut of their way to be attentive. Couldn't recommend this place more!

    Everything about our experience was impeccable. Menu was fresh and inspired, food beautifully executed, service the right mix of approachable and elevated. The space was lovely. We very much enjoyed both the wine and cocktail pairings, which were well thought out, innovative (esp the cocktails) and nicely balanced. Enigma, Chef Quinton and the team know what they're doing. On top of that, they made sure we made it to our after-dinner show on time without feeling rushed. Very impressed, we had more fun here than some of the 3-star restaurants we've frequented.

    A hidden gem!!! A recent family birthday dinner was truly memorable, with an extremely well executed, innovative and balanced 8 course tasting menu by Chef Quinton and his team. Wine pairings by Sommelier David Ouellete were innovative and reasonably priced. Special shout out to pastry chef who is exceptionally talented and really raises this repast to the next level. This resto definitely deserves it's Michelin Star. It is a shame that it was not busier on a Friday night but if you have not been and appreciate exceptional cuisine splurge and spoil yourself with a visit before you cannot get a reservation.

    Very flavourful intense food,. Very much an experience as much as a dinner. Every plate was beautifully and artfully plated. Amuse bouche set a good tone of good things to come. Perfectly cooked duck and wagyu beef. Wine pairings very thoughtful/well-paired and generous pours….and flexible depending on preference. Overall, European with significant Asian influence. Definitely worth it for a special occasion. Peaceful and private ambiance. All the staff were super helpful, attentive to any food allergie. Nice bonus meet the chef at most courses even on a Sat. Definitely Michelin experience, and glad toronto has to offer! Highly recommend

    The Very Best in Toronto. This incredible restaurant truly deserves extra Michelin stars. We are so lucky to have this amazing level of cuisine in Toronto where every dish creates a flavour sensation with superb construction and brilliantly imaginative ingredients and combinations. The wine pairings and non alcoholic pairings are so well designed and the service is personable and informed. Who needs to leave the city when we have such world class excellence on our own own doorstep. Congratulations and thank to the Enigma team.

    This was our first Michelin star dining experience and it came highly recommended from a client of mine to try here. If I could give 10 stars I would! The whole evening was incredible and absolutely beyond wonderful. From the moment we entered we were warmly welcomed and greeted by all the staff on our way to the table. Each person was kind, and welcoming and the flow between the staff was flawless. It’s truly amazing to see teamwork in action during this whole experience. We did the non alcoholic pairing and each drink paired so wonderfully with each meal! The gentleman heading all of our pairings had a wonderful presentation and personality as well. Each of the courses build on the course before and the flavor and textures will have me dreaming of this experience for years to come! Having no experience in fine dining (besides watching Below Deck chefs and enjoying the show The Bear) it was so wonderful to have each course explained by members of the team, where to start and finish each course, and also learn a bit about the ingredients, influence, or history of the meal! We went as a late birthday celebration and they even had some delightful surprises for us which was a wonderful touch! I felt badly I didn’t have more room to eat more of it! Overall I can’t express enough how wonderful the whole experience was! If you’re looking to try somewhere new and enter the Michelin star dining world this was a great start for us and I’d encourage other to try too! The space there was beautiful and intimate while being thoughtfully designed. We can’t wait to come back to Toronto again, and to try their sister restaurant next time as well! Thank you so much to Chef Quinton and your beyond amazing team!

    This is my first time writing a review since I love this restaurant so much. This is my third visit. My mom and I are absolute food lovers and have been to many Michelin restaurant. This is the one of the best restaurants in our opinion. Many people say the food is too salty, I mean you have to order the drink pairing for each dish for the best experience! There were two Chinese-speaking waiters who introduced the food to us in detailed. Service quality is top notch.

    Enigma is a true culinary show with personalized experience starting from the moment you enter the restaurant. The service is immaculate with everyone from the greeter to the chef working as a part of the team. Every aspect of your experience as a guest no matter how small has been thoroughly thought through. I won't describe the dishes in review as words will not offer enough justice to chef's work - just go there and experience them.

    This is truly a top notch experience in the Toronto food scene. Every aspect of the 10-course menu is well thought out. The service is perfect without being pretentious. In fact, the staff is shockingly youthful, friendly and very welcoming. It is most definitely expensive, but we had a resoundingly successful family celebration. Thank you Chef and team.

    Likely would not return. Food was great, although when leaving was served an allergen of which the restaurant was made aware and reacted with negligence. Took 5 days to receive an apology. Poor handling of the situation, do not feel as though anything was resolved.

    Food, service, and atmosphere are good and flawless, as expected. The only thing I'm unhappy with is that the drink charge extra in addition to prepaid amount. Maybe make it MORE clear that alcohol pairing is not included in prepaid when your waiter communicate with customers.

    Shiv and Ella and the rest of the team made for a truly wonderful anniversary evening for my wife and I. Truly an experience to remember. We will definitely be back.
