We have dined at a number of top-rated restaurants across Canada. We have rarely experienced such an enjoyable dining experience. The graciousness and professionalism of the staff, the choreography of the serving process, the enthusiastic recommendations of the sommelier, the decor and environs of the restaurant were truly unparalleled in the view of myself, my wife and our guest. We will return on our next (and each future) visit to Toronto Yorkville.

Had the 8 course tasting menu. The food was superb and very creative. They were a bit stingy with the wine servings - particularly considering what they charge for the pairings. My only complaint was they were a bit pushy with getting out the servings.
We had hoped to have an aperitif first, but they insisted on starting the courses. Service was excellent though and we had a very enjoyable evening. Pricey, but a nice way to celebrate a special occasion.

Michelin will have to start with 4 stars after experiencing Enigma, no where in the world have I seen a more beautiful expression of service, detail to excellence, and respect of the profession. Truly a memorable night and appreciated everyone’s hard work and skill in presenting what they have learned. A new bar has been set! Bravo Enigma.

We dine at many fine establishments of similar setting as Enigma (Jean Georges, Eleven Madison, Bouchon, Ultraviolet..just to name a few). Enigma levels up to these renowned restaurants with food, ambiance and service (the service team was super impeccable). With restaurants like Enigma added to the roster in Toronto, we’re wondering it’s just a matter of time for Michelin to make their way north. Super pleased that we have a restaurant of this caliber in our city. Looking forward to many dining experiences here.

Decided to try Enigma based on recommendations from friends. We’re not fine dining people but heard great things through Toronto Life and decided to try it out for a birthday. The host was very pleasant and guided us to a quiet table by the window. All I can say is that the eight courses served to us as part of their fall menu were incredible. Between shaved truffle on a beef tenderloin or sous vide pork, it was hard to pinpoint a favourite dish. Tomas, the restaurant manager was very kind and attentive and made sure that we felt at ease throughout the entire evening. The staff were also pleasant and the bar manager served us some of the best cocktails I’ve ever had. On our way out, we had an opportunity to compliment Chef Bennett who you could tell is a master of his craft. They left us some breakfast in a bag for home and listed the menu on a card for us to take home. I highly recommend this place and would love to try their next menu. Bravo!

The food was good, but outrageously priced. I didn't enjoy paying michelin star prices for a restaurant that isn't established as that type of restaurant just yet. Overall, the food was great and the presentation of the food was top notch. The service was also very good. E

Enigma was recommended by a friend and did not disappoint. The entire staff welcomed us in unison when we arrived. The 8 course tasting menu with wine pairings was phenomenal. The care and details with which the food was prepared and plated was evident with every course. The service was orchestrated so that we all received our food simultaneously. Truly an amazing experience. Highly recommend for a special occasion or celebration.

Superb in every sense of the word. These guys opened up during the height of Covid and have managed to not only survive but thrive and exceed all expectations. This could well end up being the first Canadian Michelin Starred restaurant in my opinion. Food, plating, service from beginning to end top-notch. Unparalleled in Toronto.

Celebrated at Enigma (twice) for my birthday because I just love it that much! Food is consistently incredible, excellent service, and overall best fine dining experience I've had in GTA.

100% would recommend and expect to be a regular patron myself. Excited for their new tasting menu and future expansions.

This place is more about showing off than focusing on the actual food and drinks. Don't get me wrong the food quality and presentation is great! But the environment is not natural and almost everything looks and feels fake. The staff are too much in their roles they almost forgot the natural human interactions.
Personally I would like to feel connected and welcome than sitting and purely watching presentations from random people.
