My wife made reservations for dinner for our 20th Anniversary in Toronto. She told me she searched for the restaurant with the best wine list and Carisma came up. We walked in to the quant dim lit restaurant and were immediately greeted by Michael who...More

Family meal on a weeknight... very loud and busy but that was alright for us but perhaps not the best setting for an intimate date night venue. Food was "ok" ...plentiful regular and "special" menu offerings but compared to similar venues at this price level...More

We’re four professionals who enjoy fine-dining together. We looked forward to our third visit to Carisma, but were shockingly disappointed: Small, below-average starters including watery soup, inferior sea bass, a tiny $60 venison “special” that tasted like poorly cooked beef, overly loud acoustics that made...More

This was our first time dining at Carisma and all four of us can’t wait to go back. The dishes we ordered were beautifully presented and delicious. When we arrived we were presented with some warm bread that had oil drizzled over it. It was...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
