    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.

    We did the four course Loire Valley tasting menu w/ wine pairings for each course. It was magnificent. All four courses were delightful and the wines chosen for each were well-suited and complimented the food perfectly.

    The food was phenomenal, pricey (about $300 for 2), but this is a dining experience you will not be disappointed on. You are also getting a dining experience from a Michelin star chef, so in my eyes an experience to try. The service by all the staff was fantastic, and I definitely recommend.

    Lovely, classy bar and lounge. although the food had an outstanding presentation, and was very very delicious, I think some of us would like something a little bit more substantial to get rid of our hunger.

    Went for pintxos, and then ordered a la carte. Food & service was great. Dessert was tiny for the price. Would definitely go back & try the wine pairing menu as well.

    This new restaurant has found its footing despite still in soft opening phase. The dishes are prepared as if they were part of next door's tasting menu offerings. Amazing flavour, attention to detail, superb service. Hopefully they will keep changing up the menu and I'll go visit again.

    We arrived early and appreciated the quiet atmosphere to catch up with our guests, and all remarked they would happily return. Nibbles were fantastic, and the happy hour deal is hard to beat - champagne and 3 nibbles for $45?! We also ordered the scallop crudo which was wonderful - but you’d expect nothing less from the remarkable Chef Quinton Bennett of Enigma.

    Great soft opening by the team at Saint Thomas. Hospitality of the tapas style establishment was similar to that of their elder sister restaurant next door. Pork was S++. The waldorf salad and caesar salad were both amazing. Their Basque cheesecake is special. Looking forward to going back soon.

    Amazing experience! Food, service, ambiance- everything was lovely. Each plate was well curated and balanced. I’ve been to enigma (Chef Quinton’s Michelin star restaurant next-door) a few times, and I would say this was a parallel experience at a more casual level. Will be returning with friends.
