Edulis Restaurant is the place to enjoy fine dining in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. The menu changes almost daily to ensure that each dish contains fresh seasonal ingredients. Choose between five- or seven-course dinners, which are centered on great seafood and vegetables or select items from the truffle menu when it is in season. Top menu items at Edulis Restaurant include the wild spring salmon, lightly smoked catfish and Nova Scotia yellowfin tuna. For lighter lunches or dinners, peruse the cheese and wine menu, which is a good option for small social gatherings. Edulis Restaurant's Sidreria ("cider house") menu features numerous apple ciders.
This is the third time we've been to Edulis for lunch and once again we enjoyed it thoroughly. The dishes are inventive and delicious, and the half-price wine by the bottle is a great treat. It allows you to enjoy wines you wouldn't necessarily get by the glass - without breaking the budget.
A brilliant meal, excellent service, helpful staff and a good wine selection.
Amazing meal with all sorts of perfection. Try and save room for cheese if you can since it is amazing and so well curated by the owners. What did I like best. Who knows?? Every course was a wow!!!
Absolutely outstanding intimate restaurant. We were thrilled with the depth of flavour Tobey brought out of the ingredients. Just can't wait to return.
My husband and I had a magnificent, relaxed Sunday brunch. I am semi-vegetarian, which proved not to be problematic for the restaurant and it's tapas-size 6 course set menu. They were most accommodating so much so that I hope to return soon for dinner when hopefully the courses will be strong on fish/seafood. Hint, hint Edulis!!!
My favourite thing about my 5 course meal was the homemade bread. The next was the cottagey, home like feel of the place. The food can be hit or miss depending on what they serve that evening. it is seafood and sausage heavy, so you better like that .
I wrote a long review on how great this restaurant was, onBookenda so hope you can access that. If not, I can repeat it.
The braised seeds were a taste sensation and a great example of how imaginative inspired cooking highlights the goodness of fresh food, never complicating it. We are still talking about the exquisite flavour and texture of the tuna and arctic char.
I havn't had a meal quite like this since the early days of Chef Michael Stadtlander's Eigensinn Farm. We had the five course menu and each course was completely unexpected and utterly delicious. The restaurant itself is charming and the servers attentive, friendly and helpful. There is a very good wine list and overall the meal is outstanding value for the very moderate price. I highly recommend Edulis.
We greatly enjoyed the Sunday lunch. The food and wine were fabulous. Looking forward to returning!
After a rave review in the Globe - change from 3 star to 4 star; best restaurant in Toronto, etc. etc. - it was low quality, over priced and very sparse portions. We eat at some top Toronto restaurants just recently at Café Boulud at the Four Seasons and Nota Bene which far outshone Edulis.
Chose the 7 course tasting menu, but found that for four of us this was a 3 hour experience...the 5 course would have been sufficient food, although we absolutely loved every dish, be prepared to commit the time (more significant for more people)! Can not rave enough about the presentation, creativity, attention to detail, service, and fun surprise factor. Worth the wait for a reservation.
You will not know what you are going to eat until it is actually presented to you. The only choice you have is whether to take the 5-course or 7-course offering. So, picky eaters and those with food issues may have some issues.
Also, the restaurant is quite noisy. It is small but packed with tables. We had a hard time hearing each other across a small table.
But, the food is excellent and the service was very good. Good value as well.
The fact they questioned us about allergies, what foods we do not eat, in general just caring a delivering the most scrumptious meal was truly a great experience. Then with our dessert came a piece of wonderful cake bearing a lit candle 'cause it was my birthday. Cannot wait to return over and over again.
One of the best dinners I've had in Toronto. It is definitely worth it to go for the 7 course tasting. You need to have a sense of adventure as each dish was a surprise and executed perfectly. More of a focus on fresh vegetables and seafood and some delicious and perfectly cooked meat towards the end as well. The cheese platter had a fantastic selection of hard to find cheeses from around Canada and the world. And the servers are very knowledgeable and helpful with the wine list.
The food & experience was wonderful. But, skip the truffle addition option as it was highly overrated (we were barely able to taste them).
French style locavore fine dining is definitely hard to find, but this was a good one. If I had to do this over, and it wouldn't bother me if we did, I'd just choose the small 5 course option instead of springing for the extra 2 courses with truffles. Funny, the large option with the truffles made for double the tab!
If I had to choose for fine locavore dining in Toronto: my choice is still Woods.
Incredible dining experience from start to finish! The creativity of spontaneity of the chef is both delicious and incredibly memorable.
This place is absolutely incredible. Every time I come the food is oustanding, the service is wonderful, and whomever I go with is completely over the moon about the entire experience. My favourite restaurant in Toronto.
Just amazing. Ridiculously pleasing, satisfying, complex without being fussy food!!!!
The server upsold the 7 course meal from the 5 as 'more variety'. While the food was very well prepared, we found that very similar ingredients were used in several of the dishes (an overdependence on walnuts). Five courses would have been a good varietal; 7 was just more of the same. The focus is on fish/seafood (5 of the 7 courses). The room is small and has no sound baffling so it is incredibly noisy; it was difficult to hear the server describe the course being served. Service was knowledgeable but not very friendly.
