Scaramouche has long been celebrated by customers and critics for its unwavering commitment to making each dining experience a memorable one. Chef/owner Keith Froggett's sophisticated cuisine is presented simply with care and attention to detail. The service underscores that philosophy: unobtrusive and respectful. The restaurant affords a stunning nighttime vista of the downtown Toronto skyline. These components and more make Scaramouche the singular destination it is. And the reason that the restaurant is consistently ranked as one of the city's best for more than three decades.

It was like stepping into a time capsule, from the 80’s wedge salad with iceberg lettuce?
Charging $3.00 for bread, REALLY? On top of that, the bread was ok at best!!!
I had to buy 3 orders of fries, as the main coarse lobster, was not that much bigger then a shrimp!!!
The glory days are LONG GONE, they should shut there doors!!!

Went to the restaurant with a date and asked for a window seat, all taken, that s fair, seated us in front of a big pillar blocking the whole view, we were seated thinking the tables with a view would be taken beside us , they weren't and we had a terrible view which is what the restaurant is half known for :( food was great

For the fine singing experience I expect SERVICE! our waiter completely forgot about us. He literally didn’t return for an eternity. At least 10 times I thought I needed to get up and find our waiter at $150 a head is that normal? Couldn’t believe we were being ignored when the restaurant got busier. Hello.... here we are! Do I need to waive my hands in the air? What does it take for a restaurant to match food value and service. I’d never return

Very good service and comfortable ambiance. The dining room layout was not ideal. We felt like the table was in a hallway, right next to another table, with the view of the city obstructed by other diners. Tables next to the window should be obtained when possible. Food was delicious. The restaurant was able to accommodate a gluten free menu very easily except for desserts.

This restaurant definitely lived up to its reputation and it's no wonder why it's been a staple in Toronto for so long. The food was incredible - like seriously so good! My snapdragon cocktail was a perfect way to begin. Then, for appetizers - I got the steak tartare which was delicious, and my boyfriend got the ravioli - both were beautifully done and the sauce on his pasta was extremely well developed - in fact we would have liked a little more. For mains, he had the filet, which was cooked to perfection, and the potatoes were actually unreal and something I'll be attempting to learn to make myself. My scallop dish was perfection - fabulous sear on the scallops, and actually quite a good amount for what I kind of thought I'd be getting.
We opted for no dessert, and they still surprised me with a little dessert bite. Great first experience, and while yes - it's expensive - this was a really great special dinner. We will be back to try and pasta bar as well in the future.

Food was mediocre. Menu is limited. Service was super slow. We waited 40 mins between appetizers and main courses. While the table next to us that came much later got theirs at the same time. Then another 20 mins for deserts. But the check came very fast.

Scaramouche is our top restaurant choice anywhere, by far! We compare other restaurants to Scaramouche and to date, they have all come up short. That is why we have been going there for over 25 years. They know how to 'create' and combine ingredients in such a way that we simply eat in silence, savouring every spoon/forkful. We've never, ever left anything on our plates and are sorely tempted to lick them clean! The taste combinations are sensational and visual presentations are photo-worthy.

Another positive for us are the servers and staff. All are to a "T", professional and smooth. They are friendly but not overly gushy and are there when you need them and not when you don't.

The restaurant's layout is excellent and offers wonderful views of Toronto's skyline.

We are willing to pay the higher prices because of the quality of the food, the overall atmosphere and the top notch dining experience that Scaramouche provides. Our sons and grand-daughter have been treated to the Scaramouche experience for special occasions such as graduations and birthdays. We want them to know how sublime food and eating can be when done well!

We are clearly Scaramouche fans!

The food, service and view of the city was spectacular. We weren't rushed and it allowed time to sit with a drink and chat after dinner. Overall it was again a spectacular evening that leaves you talking about Scaramouche to your family and friends.

Celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary I was told by some friends that Scaramouche makes special occasions special. Did not feel like that at all. Nobody mentioned or said anything throughout the night and only when we ordered their famous cream pie did they acknowledge it with writing it on the plate. Maybe I should not have had higher expectations.
