    A rich, villainous interior - where you'd imagine corrupt politicians go to make backdoor deals. At 6:00 PM on a Saturday it was empty, save for a moneyed patron drinking scotch and sermonizing the bartender. The front of house was welcoming and our server friendly. My wife and I ordered a glass of wine each, two plates from the hot menu (jamon and fermented tuna) and two plates from the cold menu (prawns and mackerel). The California Cab Sav at $28 dollars a glass was good enough to order a second glass, though drank too warm and needed to be served a degree or two cooler. My Spanish wife enjoyed the jamon, which came with olives, toasted focaccia and a tomato jam. The jamon was of high quality, but cut too thick losing the melt in your mouth experience. The tuna plate offered plenty of flavour and was the best received dish of the night. The dinner turned disappointing when the cold plates arrived. My wife's prawns - a pair topped with a chorizo relish- were accompanied by more focaccia (the only plentiful item of the night). The plate ate more like an appetizer than main and would have benefited from a veg. As for the mackerel, it can with veg, though nothing more than the peelings of a carrot. A peasant's portion of mackerel was the only other thing on the plate. With good table manners it was consumed in two bites and left me wondering why I paid $38 dollars. Skipping dessert and leaving 20% tip, the total came to $330. Popcorn and canned sardines were later consumed at home so to stave off hunger. If you are watching your calories but not your chequing account give it a visit, otherwise pop over to Eatley for a fulfilling meal at a fraction the price.

    Pricey but a great spot for a cozy date night. All three dishes were Michelin star quality and the service is attentive but not intrusive. We were not rushed through our meal - we could take our time and really enjoy the experience. Nice to have a high end option near Koerner Hall. We’ll be back.

    I went with a friend to celebrate her house sale. There was a snowstorm, there were very few other diners, but the service was 5 star, and we had the wine pairing menu, Californian wines were featured, and the food choices nestled in perfectly with the selections presented, the wines poured excellently by the somellier . It is a surprisingly rare thing to see front and back of house working together in a glorious harmony. Having each of the courses presented and described by the chefs can, in other restaurants, cross into pretentiousness, but the easy flow, and ability to answer some of my questions about the dishes and wines, easy smiles, delicious and inventive food combinations( not an easy thing to combine) led to a very enjoyable, unique, evening, I would be happy to do over and over again. I think a diners event exploring more off the main highway of wines, might be a good idea. If I am to offer any criticism of the evening it is that the experience and expertise of the sommelier is being well utilized at St Thomas, but more could be done to showcase his knowledge of other less well known excellent wine regions of the world for future wine pairing events .

    This place has so much potential but it’s so poorly run. The bartender said they couldn’t pronounce the name of the champagne that we ordered for $40 a glass, let alone explain to us what they were pouring. The light in the restaurant was too bright, the music was terrible. The restaurant advertises itself as a wine bar but the wine list by the glass is very small. The food wasn’t bad. We found this place way overpriced.

    St. Thomas is a nice room without much of a vibe. That may have been because it was far from full the night we were there. It's odd too because there are only 2 bar seats. We sat at the bar thinking we could chat with the bartender and get some help ordering but that didn't really happen except when we first sat down. The menu, wine list and cocktails is presented in a very small font on a grainy paper that makes it really hard to read unless you have perfect vision which I don't. Even using the light on my phone didn't help much. The food is very competently prepared and nicely presented but it's not write home-able. Service was fine but not exceptional. Not sure what was missing. Maybe staff could have made us feel more like they cared about us and that our visit be a bit memorable. If St. Thomas was just any old restaurant, I wouldn't expect as much from staff. If I recommended St. Thomas to someone it would be with qualifiers.

    Our group of five had the pre-fixe tapas with cava. The service was excellent. The food was good and as advertised. We were quite surprised at the paucity of cava served - perhaps two ounces? When a member of our party commented, perhaps an additional ounce or ounce and a half was poured. We can understand leaving a credit card to guarantee the reservation, but found it odd that we had to pre-pay everything including the tip.

    Michelin-star quality and service, without a waiting list! Had an amazing dinner at St. Thomas. We chose their four-course food and wine pairing from the Loire Valley, and was excellent. The plating was attractive and the dishes were very tasty, particularly the halibut and duck courses. The wine pairings were well chosen, and each came with a detailed explanation from their team. Service was very attentive. The restaurant was opened by Quinton Bennett in November 2023 so is still being discovered. Quentin Bennet is also the chef at the Michelin-star Enigma restaurant right next door. Now that Michelin has rated some of our best restaurants in Toronto, reservations can be hard to come by. St. Thomas is a great choice if you want that kind of quality and service without the wait. One interesting thing about the food and wine pairings is that they change the area of focus every month. The Loire Valley pairing was very good, and we look for ward to trying other pairings in future. We'll definitely be back to St. Thomas.
