This was my first time and I must say, my girls and I had a GREAT time. Our server was very patient as we were a little tipsy, upon entry I felt welcomed. And the food! Ugh! PHENOMENAL! It was all around just a great place. I definitely recommend going.
Everything was great ..... if I had to complain about anything it would be that I felt they were rushing us through
Fantastic service! Definitely will return!the ambience is also lovely. And we were so well accommodated with our baby.
Absolutely love this restaurant! Food is always amazing and is my number one choice when friends and family come to visit Toronto.
Best Italian restaurant in the Bay Street Corridor wonderful staff food is second to none
The complimentary bread was amazing ! The fries were very mushy and undercooked
The gnocchi was good and so was the veal, very well cooked
Service was amazing. Small tight area though, a little too loud
Overall nice experience
Took my wife for her birthday. They gave us a great semi-private table in a corner behind the front door. It was perfect. Romantic. The food and the wine were amazing. We highly recommend.
The lasagne we ordered was cold. They brought a new one, but no excuse or what so ever.
Service was exceptional! Ambiance is very nice. Everyone is extremely welcoming. Started with the scallops & spinach. Good, but maybe missing a bit of oomph. The focaccia bread…wow. Had the perch special and although it was nice and light, definitely not $45 worth. Missing something. The kind staff made up for it!
Absolutely amazing from start to finish. The food was five star and so was the service.
Awesome experience!!! Would definitely go back! Food and service was perfect!
Great restaurant for business meetings and date nights. The warm focaccia is a welcome statement!
Elegant, comfortable, great food. Carisma is a classic.
Fantastic as always!
Outstanding as always! Our go to anytime when come to TO! Food is so delicious!! Service second to none! You can feel the sense of pride from all staff! We recommend Carisma to anyone looking for a restaurant suggestion in TO.
Only slight complaint was that it was very loud when we were there but we went late on a Saturday so that’s to be expected.
Lovely but too loud to really enjoy the dining experience
Service, food and wine all excellent. Very crowded...no space between tables, no coat check. Even servers had trouble getting between tables.
Always love to come to Carisma when I’m in town for a quick business meal.
Pasta are amazing and great wine selection!
Overall, it was a great evening out. It wasn’t as intimate an environment as I thought it might be, and was much louder than I expected it would be; however we did enjoy ourselves.
Attentive staff, very good food and great choice of wines.
Wasn’t worth the price of admission. Unsatisfied with both quantity and quality of the food. Ordered Tagliolini with duck confit and couldn’t even find a piece of duck!
Service and atmosphere were fine, but otherwise don’t see the value.
Amazing food and service. Great atmosphere and the staff and very good at their jobs. Very accommodating as well. Definitely going to be going back there.
Had a great evening. Exceptional professional service. Meal was super. Had white truffle pasta and pan fried pickerel. Both excellent. Great vibe. Busy without feeling chaotic. Will definitely return.
Overall it was a good experience. Food was good too.
Fabulous restaurant. You either get this next comment or you don’t; this is how it is done. They get it. Every place can have a hiccup but it is ALWAYS how they fix the problem that matters. It was busy, we were sat quickly but waited for 10-15 minutes for a drink order. The woman who seated us clearly noticed and came swooping in and from that point on it was 2 minutes. The food was spectacular and other than bitter sage garnish it was perfect and well thought out. If you get it, go here. If not, I’m sure they won’t miss ya!
It was not my first time and the food is always delicious. The waiters are always great. Beware that the pasta portion is very small, so not suited for a big appetite. The veal was perfect.vPersonnally I would have liked a little more time in between services, I suppose it is my preference, as I like to enjoy the evening. I will go back though and I highly recommend.
I can not say enough about the service and the attention to details we received. The staff went above and beyond to insure our dining experience was great. The food was delicious as well which made for a perfect evening. I would recommend anyone who is still a bit Covid shy to feel very comfortable and enjoy a taste of what life use to be like and hopefully will be again.
The herbed lamb chops were fabulously delicious as ws the veal milanisie .We will return !
From the beautiful decor to the exceptional service and wonderful flavours. This is a top quality restaurant
Portion very small
Great food! Amazing service! We will
Definitely be back!
Great restaurant! The service was perfect. Many food options to choose from. Gluten free friendly too.
The location of Carisma is excellent - great central location however not easily identifiable - had we not been looking specifically for it, we would have missed it all together. Lovely, bright decor, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Very friendly and professional staff and most welcoming and attentive. Food was excellent and very reasonably priced for fine dining. Will definitely return.
A refined dining choice - very attentive service ( but a bit too impatient - wine list - ordering seemed overly present while our group chatted and hovered over us to clear the dishes 2-3 times as we finished our course ) The owners are true restauranteurs and make you feel good about the evening - cudos to them !
Also a very crowded table setup if you are not 100% sure about indoors eating in a still present COVID environment
food is good. drinks ok. fast service. portions are a bit small for the price.
Excellent food and service. Not cheap though. Wine is very expensive.
Good food , good service , nice ambience! Good for birthdays
Loved the ambience. Great patio. We are from Niagara that once lived in Toronto 👌
Went here recently for my birthday and the waiter and food was superb. The waiter made us feel so special and always checked in and the truffle pasta was incredible!
