All was wonderful
Just the restaurant is around with buildings .
Food wasn’t as good as the last time we were there. The risotto had a very raw like taste to it and wasn’t flavourful at all. If food is that overpriced it should at least taste good
Outstanding service an food!
Loved the ambiance and amazing food!
Amazing staff and delicious food! Always a first choice!
Amazing lighting, the service was great. The food was as well very good, although the steak was a little hard to cut through.
So good great staff food is outstanding
It is the middle of summer in Ontario and the tomatoes in the Buffala salad were inedible. They reminded me of the tomatoes that we used to get that came in a box in the middle of winter.
The restaurant was amazing!!! Highly recommend! The owner, Michael, was a true delight!
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and it was just perfect!
Amazing food and service! 10/10 would recommend!
Have been here many times before and the food was amazing however it seems that the chef/quality has changed. The pasta was tasteless and for what we got was way overpriced. Also, the owner Margot does not know how to treat return customers and thinks they don’t know what “good” truffle pasta tastes like. Needless to say, I will never be back.
Such an amazing meal!!!
Great Anniversary dinner!
The food was fantastic! And the service was perfect! Highly recommend Carisma.
Great service and great food! Our server Daniel was unbelievable!
Wonderful first time visiting post-lockdown. Service was knowledgeable, helpful and just the right amount of attentive.
SO good great staff always consistent
Thank goodness we are back to eating out in restaurants. Not being able to enjoy all that Carisma has to offer has been tough. The food is amazing. Not a big menu but great offerings that are delicious. Try the spagatinni. As an appetizer or a main course. You will be glad that you did. Same with the scallops. Great service. Friendly and efficient. A must place to go for a special occasion or just a night out.
Carisma is our go-to for terrific Italian cuisine with fantastic service and a great ambience!
Beautiful ambiance on patio and delicious food
Great service. The food was delicious. Great valve . Will definitely go back .
Very helpful staff, delicious food! Beef carpaccio was to die for. There’s something on the menu for everyone!
I thought this is a fine dining restaurant, but in fact it just a neighborhood restaurant. Some servers didn’t wear their mask or even don’t know they have to cover their nose. Tables are too close and too crowded. I am just lucky sat near to a person who speak loudly at the table. Foods is ok for family type restaurant. Server told me the special pasta is shrimps and scallops, but only shrimps was on my plate. Scallops never arrive or may be I heard this wrong from the server.
Overall, was a great experience.
Scallops were the best I’ve had in town.
Gnocchi was excellent.
Risotto with prawns tasted great but risotto was slightly undercooked.
Cheesecake was amazing!
Delicious as always
Took my girlfriend here for a date night. The food was excellent( we had gnocchi and the seafood pasta). The service was extremely friendly and never left us hanging. The ambience was romantic. Definitely the place to go for the special date night!
Amazing experience! Would go back 100%.
Great food, ambience and Luis our waiter was top notch.
Delicious food served on a lovely patio! Can’t go wrong.
The manager literally yelled at us and called us poor for not giving a random waiter a tip. The waiter who had been serving us wasn’t the one who brought the bill and we explained that to her and offered to give a tip and she kept yelling and said “clearly you need it more than they do”. This was so unnecessary and aggressive. The food also was super mediocre and the drinks came after 30 minutes. The manager honestly should be fired but her blatant disrespect. A complete fail.
I don’t often bother to leave reviews but this was probably the best dinner reservation me and my boyfriend have ever had :) I wish more restaurants were like this one in the sense of all staff being very attentive, helpful, and friendly. Everything tasted amazing, our waters were never emptied, specials were told to us immediately, bread between meals, I could go on but you get the point. Unfortunately I don’t live around here, otherwise this would be my new favourite restaurant to go to.
Made to feel like family from the moment we walked in. Great food, great service.
Great food great service. All that matters
the awesome place we will be back for sure. The food was wonderful and delicious.
They didn’t split our bill even after we asked. Service is definitely bad.
Loved every moment of the dinner. Staff super friendly. Food was delicious. Definitely going back.
