Scaramouche Pasta Bar
Too noisy, too crowded, decor was dark & uninviting, service was impersonal-not friendly or welcoming, food took a long time to be served.
All in all-a very poor birthday celebration dinner!
Excellent food and service. Been going there for almost forty years
Outstanding meal. We shared 6 dishes between two of us. Decadent!! Mushroom soup, calves liver, ravioli, gnocchi etc. The best restaurant in the city for service ambience and food quality. Servers always discreet, knowledgeable and highly professional
Don’t understand all the fuss. Our caprese and tuna tartare were excellent but the entrees were disappointing - the ravioli was very overcooked, sauce and filling lacked flavor; the gnocchi was served in tomato sauce - the menu noted tomato (as in pieces of tomato not sauce) and Parmesan sauce and there was just a very little bit of cheese sauce, the gnocchi was also over cooked, not caramelized but actually burnt. Don’t understand the fuss over the coconut cream pie either. The bread seemed to be reheated a few times before being served to us. Our server was great, and we had a fabulous table at the window.
The owner is terrific - a great entrepreneur. However, the restaurant is noisy and somewhat tired looking. I agree with someone the other day who wonders why people go there anymore.
the wines are also very expensive for 6 oz - a comparable wine in many restaurants would be the same price for 9 oz. It also seemed that for $60, you could get a very very ordinary Australian low end wine. So we will return to Le Paradis where the value is high and the noise is low.
The service was and is impeccable. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left they were excellent in their service. The food is incredible and highly recommend. Turned out to be one of the best experiences
Everything from service to food was very good. Only slight ding would be took awhile to get the bill. Otherwise highly recommend!
Food was pretty good. Only issue was that we got moved - there was a large empty table to my right and two couples tables to my left. The host told us that a larger group wanted to move to the large empty table, and if we wanted more space and privacy, we were welcome to move two tables over. We obliged, leaving two couples tables between us and the large group. Within ten minutes, a couple came in and was sat directly next to us, rather than next to the larger group. It made it seem like we were asked to move to give the large group space and privacy, rather than us. I have never in my life been asked to move in a restaurant. Otherwise, pretty good spot.
Great food and service. Lovely ambiance. The perfect setting for a romantic getaway.
Filet mignon was delicious
Pasta was overly salty
Sommelier was good
Restaurant was rather loud for a Wednesday
Excellent. Our favorite restaurant in the world!
A very enjoyable birthday celebration for my lady. Waiter was excellent, as was the food. 3rd visit and it just keeps becoming more memorable.
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.
As usual, excellent meal, fine ambience; easy valet parking a bonus
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!
Beyond my expectations! It was fantastic on every level!! Can’t wait to go again 🥰
Service and food were excellent and those are the most important areas. Great job! I’d definitely recommend it and be back. Delicious
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
As usual the evening was enjoyable food was tasty service was better than any restraint I go to and not pushy over all excellent evening
Always great food and fantastic service.
Fantastic food, intimate room, first class all the way.
Celebrating a milestone birthday. The food was great and service too. All staff members thoughtfully gave their warm wishes.
Absolutely incredible experience and am still talking to friends and colleagues about the rabbit!
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.
Date with my wife and daughter. Great evening with great service form Ryan.
The pasta and grill bar is excelente. The ambiance very relaxed, the food was perfect , very delight. I would come back no doubts!
Absolutely fabulous! The liver is to die for, and the pasta is perfectly cooked.
Lovely meal in a lovely setting. Scaramouche can be counted on to deliver a very good, beautifully prepared meal.
Always amazing. Tenderloin Fettuccine and coconut cream pie! To die for!!
Amazing dinner. Outstanding service!
Loved the coconut cream pie!
Highly recommend Scaramouche
The food was good and the service friendly, but the servers have too many tables for this price point.
As usual Scaramouche Pasta is a wonderful restaurant. Food and service was excellent.
Always a perfect meal and experience!
Consistently great food, service and ambience!
Always love the Pasta Bar. Food was fabulous. Really enjoyed our special birthday celebration.
Amazing service delicious food a wonderful time
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.
Wonderful service and even better food. We requested a window seat for a special occasion and it was lovely.
The food is the best reason to go. Each dish is worth savoring.
The setting and service are spot on for a place of this caliber
Not inexpensive but the place we go for anniversaries and birthdays .. and now and then
