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.

Food and service as always is exceptional. Valet parking service always punctual and respectful. The decor is outdated and in desperate need of a more modern look.

Our experience eating at the pasta bar was disappointing. Perhaps the worst part was the noise level which was so loud that it was difficult to talk across the table.

I took my husband here for his birthday and he loved everything about his experience; from the table with a view, the fresh baked bread and humus, best steak tartare he has ever eaten, delicious main, friendly,attentive and knowledgeable service. Our adult children love the Pasta Bar too.

Scaramouche never disappoints - Always seems to be perfect - great food choices, service and the best wine list - well balanced - for us it was the place to celebrate our Anniversary. First time for the Pasta Bar and I think we would choose it again, mainly for the menu. #1 in Toronto

Beautiful restaurant and even better food! We each had a pasta dish and shared the coconut cream pie and left very satisfied.

The valet was a bit lacklustre. No one was initially there and our car was 20 feet away so felt a bit odd. But this was minor in comparison to the wonderful food and experience.

Another great dinner at The Pasta Bar. Whether it’s the main dining room or the Pasta Bar, Scaramouche never disappoints. Impeccable service. Lovely atmosphere. Terrific food. The Peppercorn Pasta with beef tenderloin was excellent. The liver with onion rings was perfect. Deep Fried Calamari appetizer can’t be beat except maybe by the new Salt Cod Fritters which were incredible. The only disappointment was that they’re taken Steak Tartare off the menu. It was the best in Toronto. Their signature Coconut Creak Pie sets the standard for this dessert classic.

Tried out the pasta bar side this time - great experience. A little more relaxed than the other side. Food was delicious as usual. I always go for the generous portion of coconut cream pie. Only surprise was receiving actual french fries with my steak... just seemed odd for this restaurant. Any other form of potatoes would have matched the dish. Besides that, all of our dishes were perfect. I think our servers name was Andres - he was welcoming and aware, but didn't hover which was nice. Gave a good wine recommendation as well.

Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see a notice that we could have our table for only 2 hours, so that was a surprise when we arrived! Definitely was not told of this when I received a phone message the day before, asking to confirm the reservation. We like to linger a bit with our friends (who love this place) so would have probably dined elsewhere had I known. I made the reservation a month prior, so was surprised yet again at the table we were given. It was right near a pillar, where as I leaned back to allow our nice server to clear the table, I was hit in the head by a passing server. Green salad was basic, fresh enough but not very flavourful. Chitara (with meatballs) was tasty. Cheese platter was stingy with the portions. Fish and steak were good. I find the service here a bit unnecessarily stiff--prompt enough but lacking warmth. Wouldn't be my choice for an enjoyable dining experience.
