Scaramouche is a reliable, no fail Toronto staple. The Pasta Bar is the more affordable option, but both sides of the restaurant offer a wide range of imaginative cooking. Fresh flavours in innovative but not experimental approaches.

This place never fails to impress us. Thank you to the host for making an exception of letting us order off the restaurant menu at the pasta bar. The food and service are top notch!

Noise level for a late dinner at 9 pm was more than "energetic". At the beginning of the evening it was quite intolerable, but after the first hour of many table yelling across at each other it was very lovely
I would go again but not sure what might be a better time. Certainly not Saturday night with people on their phones and very loud "conversations"
Food and service was wonderful

This has been an outstanding Toronto restaurant for decades....and it still is one. The only glitch in the evening is that it's quite noisy when the restaurant is full. Not so noisy later in the evening.

Stuck up customers, salty food, tables way to close together in the pasta bar. The best aspect of the restaurant is the view and the coconut cream pie. Wouldn’t come back

Scaramouche is Fine Dining at its best. From the creative and beautifully prepared dishes to the excellent wait staff, Scaramouche continues to be the best Fine Dining restaurant in Toronto. Every dish we had was delicious and a treat to the eye. We were fortunate to also have a table that afforded beautiful nighttime view of the downtown Toronto. Thanks to the chefs and staff for making our dining experience a memorable one.

Enjoyed excellent food (especially without any added dairy) served by a very pleasant waitress. I enjoyed having a choice of unique non-alcoholic drinks, and found "Amelia Earhart" thirst quenching.
My husband, who is quite a fussy eater, enjoyed the ravioli with a generous serving of vegetables. We both found the New Zealand white wine very satisfying. We also shared two desserts which were absolutely delicious without being "over the top". Thanks to all the staff who made my birthday dinner a very special occasion (candle and all) !

As usual the food (selection and quality) was exceptional. Another comment one in our party made was that the portion sizes are excellent...we ate everything and didn't feel need for more. That's something you don't experience in many restaurants! Unfortunately the noise level was very high when we were there and made conversation among the 4 of us difficult. We will return and hope for a quieter evening.

The ambience was beautiful, valet parking was convenient, service was outstanding. But the food was quite average. The meatballs were overcooked, the cod fritters were bland. The only food I'd recommend coconut cake.

The Pasta Bar and Grill is hidden in the basement of a residential building, never expected that. The ambiance was good, the service was excellent. Soup of the day; Artichoke and mushroom puree with shaved parmesan and truffle oil was tasty, also liked Peppercorn Fettuccini. Desserts were very good well presented and succulent.
