Scaramouche Restaurant
French | Midtown / Uptown
129 reviews

Since its very first review in 1981, when Joanne Kates of The Globe & Mail raved both about the food and the unstinting attention to detail, Scaramouche has gone from strength to strength for over twenty years - no small feat in a world obsessed with trends and novelty. The food reflects chef Keith Froggett’s belief that less is more; that the finest ingredients classically combined result in a purity that transcends fads and fusion. The service is unobtrusive and faultless yet furnished simply, without pretense. The restaurant’s longevity is a testimonial to the pursuit of quality and the gracious welcome one receives at Scaramouche. Twice voted “Toronto’s Top Restaurant” by Gourmet magazine, Scaramouche remains the pre-eminent destination for fine food and excellent wines, the place to be as the sun sets and the lights of the city’s skyline begin to twinkle through the restaurant’s windows. Our goal is to ensure the most gracious of welcomes and quality throughout your visit.

Woods Restaurant & Bar
Canadian | Downtown/ Financial District
87 reviews

This special spot is a bucolic celebration of the best of Continental, French, Italian and — natch — Canadiana. As elegant as it is natural, Woods Restaurant serves up seasonal, sustainable local ingredients in a space that is as authentic rustic chic as the day is long. Service of Canadian- and Mediterrean-influenced dishes (like wild buttery Digby scallops with brown butter cauliflower and melt-in-your-mouth Ontario lamb burger) is languid and efficient here, under the wooden branch and raindrop chandeliers and inside the flood of natural light painting the handsome wood interior in front- and back-window strokes. And owner Bruce Woods has furnished the 80-seat St. Lawrence neighbourhood proceedings with a serious international wine and craft-brew list.
