This restaurant feels like a cozy place in Normandy (even though the chef is Spanish). The service is very attentive and it's generally a nice place to have an extended dinner over wine.

The tasting menus are really great. My only criticism relates to the extras being really prices. When I was there the extras added $40 for some ham, $100+ for some caviar. The up-sell also felt a little pushed.

All in all, I had a terrific meal and would definitely return.

Made a reservation after Edulis landed in the top ten restaurants in Canada. We chose the smaller of the two tasting menus ($65/5 courses; $95/7 courses) and it was very good dining. But overall, the dinner lacked a bit of a wow factor or specifically memorable dishes. Quality of ingredients and preparation were evident in each dish, especially given it's seafood focus. Presentation was magazine worthy. Service team was knowledgeable about the construction of each dish and origin of ingredients, and they treat you like family. Perfectly cozy and intimate. Not great for larger groups.

Simply amazing on all fronts - ambiance, food and service!! Sean did a great job in being friendly, hospitable, providing advice and attentive while unobtrusive. Ambiance was that of a romantic and cozy far off cafe or bistro.
It was the food that was the star of the show. Only 2 food options - 5 or 7 courses - with the only real choice being 7 given the outstanding quality. Fantastic Fife bread with Quebec butter and a tomato puree. Primarily all delicate fish dishes with 1 lamb course and an extra peas with truffle butter that was absolutely amazing. A nectarine sorbet was thought to finish things off but a surprise butter rum sauce cake was the best dessert ever. Our favourite restaurant of all time and that says a lot. Very Highly Recommended!!!

With Toronto and it's multitude of restaurants, you can go forever without repeating one. I've been to Edulis before and it was wonderful. This was a few years back, so I thought I'd go again with friends that haven't been.

You choose from a fixed menu, with either more or less courses. I can't tell what you will get as the menu changes constantly based on ingredients.

It is more of a fish restaurant, in terms of the proteins you get. This past visit did have one red meat in the course.

Unlike other restaurants that offering similar styled tasting menus, I find that we all walk away satisfied and not hungry, even with the shorter menu selection, rather than the most courses offered.

The atmosphere is lovely. Not loud, which is nice. It's so rare to find a restaurant where you can hear your company speak.

The ingredients are fresh and good quality. We gook a Spanish friend that is used to dining at Michelin star restos and he was pleasantly surprised.

The wine list is mostly whites, as it should be with the fish friendly menu. I had a lovely rose that evening. They are able to recommend a good glass or bottle based on the food of the evening.
