A casual chic Parisian eatery featuring Bloor's only streetside patio. A marriage of Canada’s most cosmopolitan city and Parisian bistro style and cuisine, La Société is a dining destination unlike any other in Toronto. Step inside and your senses will be flooded with the sights, scents, and flavours that your Parisian dreams are made of.

"It has been years since I've been to the Colonnade on Bloor and it was great to revisit. La Societe is a great addition to the neighbourhood. The décor is beautiful and has a very authentic French bistro ambience. The half overlooking Bloor Street is the dining room and the other (interior) half is a long bar. I believe there were also private dining rooms available. The service was lovely as was the edited and perfect (in my opinion) brunch menu. My eggs Florentine were perfect and the coffee was also.
I will definitely go back for drinks and dinner."

Steps away from the King Edward Hotel, Toronto’s financial, business, theatre, shopping and culinary districts. Carisma offers something a little different. <br><br>With a long history of being in the business, including restaurants such as Il Mulino and Barolo, Carisma prides itself on offering impeccable real Italian food and quality service. <br><br>Carisma epitomizes the overall dining experience. Whether it is a drink at the bar, or a culinary journey where you enjoy food with your senses first. It is a place where you feel at home and coming for years, even if its your first time.

"My first dinner at Carisma. All the service was welcoming, professional and wonderful. The décor is comfortable and sophisticated. The restaurant filled up quickly on the Thursday night (before Christmas week) and the clientele were on their way to the theatre, staying at the King Eddie, having a romantic dinner, celebrating Christmas with friends, on dates, or friends getting together - a really nice mix.
The menu was obviously prepared with great care and a Mediterranean flare. The wine list was also very well edited. Our server was charming and offered subtle and great advice. Our meals were delicious and presented beautifully. Servings were generous by my standards. The warm just-out-of-the-oven herbed loaf was a great start to dinner on a winter's night. We sampled the squid salad appetizer. The squid was grilled to perfection. Our mains were: 1. the 'daily special' swordfish, which was grilled and served with sauteed asparagus, red peppers and fingerling potatoes; and 2. the spaghetti with shrimp in a creamed tomato sauce. I spent 2 weeks in Tuscany last October and none of the pasta I ate there compared to Carisma's pasta! We shared an apple-pear strudel with vanilla ice cream as our server recommended and it was served with a perfect cup of coffee. Thanks to everyone at Carisma for a perfect dinner.
I'll be back - again and again - very soon!"
