Scaramuche is fine dinning at its best!
The ambient is sober and quiet, but relaxed; perfect for a couple’s night out or for a business lunch.
Food was simply extraordinary. I cannot affirm it was the best lamb I’ve ever try, but I would go for top three ever.
But the high note was, as it should be in fine dinning, service. Marcus, our server, was at the same time very professional, meticously caring of details, agreable and expert on both wine and menu.
Definitely one of Toronto’s best restaurants and if ever visiting town again, we will return

The staff from the moment we entered the restaurant to the time we left were so attentive to our dining pleasure and experience. They were there to answer questions and provide suggestions which worked out very well for all of us. Such great people skills. This has been our favourite restaurant for the last thirty years and while we have not frequented your establishment on a regular basis it has been a truly memorable experience everytime. Your chef / chefs were absolutely amazing. Thank you!!!!!

We went there for my spouse's birthday dinner. Food quality was excellent and service was very good. We were informed about the night's special by our wonderful host. They were all very attentive and very prompt. The filet mignon was perfectly medium, the halibut was done nicely as well. For dessert we had Roasted Ontario Peaches. Everything was sublime.

I finally had a chance to try Scaramouche and it was really great. Service was excellent, atmosphere was business professional and it was great for a birthday occasion. Parking is valet only. You don't pay for this, but of course we did leave a tip when we received the car at the end of the night. We shared the shrimp and lobster appetizer which was fresh, creative, and flavorful! We followed with sharing the octopus, which tasted good, but not as tender as I've made myself at home. It did have very good flavour, but I would try something different next time. I had the filet for my main dish, the flavor was outstanding, the portion of filet I thought could be a bit more, they cut the steak and give you three slices, mine were quite thin, but it was filling enough, especially after the coconut cream pie! My partner had the lamb, it was not very hot and the flavours on the dish including chick peas, carrots, and onions, didn't stand out like the filet. But overall it was a great dining experience. If you like cocktails, try the scarmacouch special, it comes with champagne, pineapple juice and other flavors, very delicious and strong! We shared a half bottle of amarone wine and the bill came to $265 plus tip. I would recommend trying this for a special occasion. I will certainly try the pasta bar and grille side of the restaurant next time.

Came to celebrate a retirement. Appetizers were fabulous. My wife had the corn soup and I had the fois gras. Buttery smooth but not inexpensive for an appetizer- $29. I had the halibut and while it is a mild fish. There was very little flavor as there was no seasoning. My wife's lamb meal had to be sent back as it was not hot. We expected them to prepare a new meal given the price point but all they did was reheat the plate. Now it was good but thought they would get it right first time. Wine is VERY expensive. Corkage is $60 if you bring your own. Which many people did. Service was good and attentive. Bill for two bottles of wine and four appetizers and four entrees and two desserts (which were excellent) and three coffees and an after dinner liquor with tax was $633.
