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.

I have enjoyed dining at Scaramouche on many occasions without complaint. However this past Friday I was disappointed for many reasons. The food was not up to their usual standards ...the soup was thin and the main course of parpadelle was flat and flavourless. Service was satisfactory but the second glass of wine arrived as my guest just finished her main course. We passed on desert as neither the first or main course was up to their usual standard. Coffee was excellent. I would recommend Scaramouche with this caveat as to the mediocrity of my last dining experience

A very enjoyable dining experience overall
Beer selection does not include any craft beers,
most of which are too hoppy which compromises the pallets ability to appreciate finer food.
The overhoppiness prevails with their only draft selection which is a strongly hopped Spanish beer.
Best beer for fine dining is a pilsner. Steam Whistle's Czech style pilsner is recommended.
It is even superior to premium priced imports which use corn syrup, rice, chemically treated water and dilute their beer from concentrate.

We had a wonderful time there! Very nice setup
Cool view and most of the food was good

Their calamari and one fo their pastas, were extremely over salted. Like we needed a lot of water after, oversalted.

Otherwise, their food is good.

Very pleasant evening. Even though we bought a relatively inexpensive bottle of wine it was decanted and served after “airing” with our main course. Service was excellent.

My husband and I chose this as our special occasion spot to find out the gender of our baby, and it was such a special night. The service was outstanding, the food was to die for, and it really made the whole experience a memorable one.

My husband and I always celebrate special occasions at Scaramouche. The menu is always interesting with great options. The service this time was not quite as seamless. It seemed a little “rushed” for a Tuesday night with empty tables around us. Love the Coconut Cream Pie.

The service was exceptional, as were the desserts and the coffee. The soup and main course were tasty, but a little disappointing. The portion of soup was just adequate, but the pappardelle contained very little venison, which was ground, a fact that the menu hadn’t mentioned. The Shiraz was excellent. We might well give the restaurant another try, but we’ll probably order something else next time.
