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.

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

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.

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.
