    The waiter made us feel welcome and relaxed with us in a very positive manner. It's been a few years since we've last been, and having the dessert plates with an inscription in chocolate saying Happy Anniversary was a very nice touch. Both Naomi and I enjoyed our meal immensley. Scaramouche has done the thing we value, keeping a consistent high standard.

    Our server, Andrew brings service to an art form while maintaining warmth and friendliness! Food was elegant, thoughtful and delicious. Generous portions presented like a plated fable. Scaramouche is the essence of true fine dining- no cramped tables, lots of knowledgeable staff, no loud music or 90 minute table limits. Diners were enjoying their food and talking to each other— not busy on media or texting people. At Scaramouche, you are in the present moment, which, in a world seemingly gone mad, is the most wonderful place to be. It will take you out of yourself; remind you to use all your senses and reconnect with life. The only downside was that we asked for a window table to celebrate my birthday. It felt like we were bumped in favour of another couple. We still enjoyed our dinner, this was just a little bit snobby but absolutely my only criticism. Maybe next time. Scaramouche is what dining should be!

    We had a wonderful dinner at Scaramouche as usual. We feel the decor is a bit outdated , but that’s not as important as the quality of the food. I’d like to point out that there are several stairs to get down to the restaurant and then again a few to get down to the tables by the window. We hadn’t been there for a while, and I was not having difficulty walking before, but it was quite hard navigating the stairs.

    My elementary school friend and I were celebrating both our birthdays. We had the burrata appetizer which was actually a buffala mozzarella (we were advised before ordering) but was still very good as was the bread we had. We ordered the pasta special with lamb ragu and the halibut and they both amazing dishes. And of course we ended the night with the coconut cream pie (to die for) and a candle and birthday wishes. Service was great, not rushed but attentive. There was a rowdy birthday party which I had wished were in a separate room rather than being in the middle of the dining room but other than that, we enjoyed our evening.

    Exceptional food, service and environment. We have ordered the filet mignon, scallops, beef tenderloin fettucine, rack of lamb, squid appetizer and coconut cream pie for dessert. All were exceptionally well done, especially the scallops were one of the best in town. Both the filet mignon and tenderloin were so flavorful and tender and the coconut cream pie was very fragrant and delicious without being too sweet. Great selection of wine and we had an awesome experience overall.

    Appetizers, mains and deserts were all exceptional. The wine list was excellent. What I really appreciate is all the little spaces and variety of perfectly prepared vegetables that accompany the mains. The flourless chocolate cake was little, crème coconut sooo light. Perfect meal wonderful service , no pretensions.

    It was an important night for my son in laws 40th- we were early thinking we could have a drink in the bar but it was full. The maître D was so helpful. He got us seated at an ideal table despite the fact that we were 45 min early for our 8 o’clock reso. Also our server was delightful and full of positivity as were our 2 busboys! What a treat of a place— living up to its iconic image decade after decade

    I found the food too salty. The filet mignon was a decent size and cooked perfectly. The mushroom pasta was too salty as well as the mushrooms sides. The parmesan fries were nice and crispy. Half lobster meat was on the softer side. Romaine salad was chopped to 3 sections instead of 4 (since there were 4 at the table). They didn't bother dividing the pasta even though I said we were going to share it as an appetizer. Coffee was weak, tasteless. Their famous coconut cream pie had a hard crust but the filling was delicious. We went to celebrate my brother's birthday and they brought over a candle on a plate with Happy Birthday written on it. No cake or cookies, no singing, etc. Overall, a bit disappointed.

    Amazing service! Amazing food, and quality & quantity that you are paying for is definitely worth it! Really get to enjoy your meal without feeling hungry at the end! We had a sommelier come to our table very knowledgeable and provided amazing wine recommendations! Have to figure out where to buy the bottles

    This was my third time at Scaramouche and it didn’t disappoint! The service was great and seamless and the food was delicious as usual. I ordered the hummus and bread for my appt and the seafood spaghetti as my main and they were delicious. Great portion sizes too. My husband and dad ordered the tuna tartare for their starter and it was delightful too. The coconut cream pie for dessert is also a must as that’s their signature dessert. Also the latte I had with it was yummy! I like how they have complimentary valet parking too but naturally I tip $20-$25 so not free but totally worth it. I would return again for sure!

    First the excellent; staff are friendly but professional and attentive but not overbearing. The food presentation was impeccable but as with most French restaurants the portions are on the small side. If you like big plates this may not be a place for you. The hummus was outstanding and served with very nice sour dough bread. The foie gras was very good but not quite as good as Le Saint-Amour in Quebec City. The salads were very good. My wife's poached lobster meat was on the chewy side and a bit overcooked. Our youngest sons file mignon was excellent and the mushrooms were some of the best I have tasted. The scallops were perfectly done but the trout roe was not a pairing I liked. My wife's lemon dessert was absolutely beautiful the way it was presented but lacked substance. The coconut cream pie and the semifreddo very both very good but we would have liked a touch more sweetness. All in all we will likely visit again.

    We were there for our 25th Anniversary. Elliot and the other staff did an excellent job of making the occasion special for us. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. This is one of those rare restaurants where the service was so unobtrusive that we did not notice when, for example, our wineglasses were set on the table. We loved it and would definitely return. A fantastic place for a special event or just a luxurious night out. Strongly recommend.

    A little disappointed in our latest experience at Scaramouche. The quality of the ingredients remain outstanding but the lack of flavour and oomph one experienced is gone. Additionally the service level seems to have dropped, we had to request that the empty breadbasket be removed after 20 minutes and a refill of our empty wine glasses. In a city like Toronto with the culinary experiences available, there are far superior restaurants to visit and be awed.

    Scaramouche has a long history of excellent cuisine and service as well as extremely knowledgeable sommeliers. And this experience further cemented that. Very low noise levels as well so that you can actually speak with your dining partners.
