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.

Amazing yellowfin tuna. 10/10. Table bread with fresh butter was also a huge hit. We had 3 orders! Great service and overall great meal.

Possibly going mid-week had an impact on our experience, but this was not the Scaramouche I remembered. We’ve been a number of times but hadn’t gone in years and decided for our 15th anniversary it was time. The food was good but not at as heart-stopping as I

As on previous visits, service and food were exceptional. No surprise there. And as on previous visits it was *quiet*. There is no obtrusive and pointless canned music. You can talk across the table. You can hear the waiter. I have said all his own previous reviews and I am delighted to repeat it.

This was our third time at Scaramouch. We had not had a bad experience and this time was no different. At the risk of sounding less than humble we have eaten at some very fine restaurants throughout Europe and Scaramouch ranks right up there with the best.

It was our 47th wedding anniversary, but we didn’t want to make a thing of it. We didn’t declare it on our reservation and we didn’t mention it at the restaurant. We chose Scaramouche because of several previous experiences, together and on separate occasions, and agreed that it had elegant service from start to finish. We were startled at the beginning because our (Open Table) reservation wasn’t immediately recognized. Rather it was suggested that we had come for the pasta bar. I clarified that we hadn’t and without apology, our reservation was confirmed and we were sent on our way. Service was good. Food was excellent. The ambience of the place was comfortably informal, more like an upscale neighbourhood restaurant than a downtown venue. Not a complaint about that. Lots of regulars and a good interaction between them and the staff. And when we left, no acknowledgement from the front desk. Not a big issue but in marked contrast to our previous visit where we were asked if we needed a cab. One was ordered. When it hadn’t come in ten minutes another company was contacted and we were attended to until we got into the vehicle. Much more dispassionate this time. Living downtown we have a ton of closer options to explore. A nice meal but not quite what we have experienced on previous occasions. Oh, and on that note, my spouse was given incorrect directions to the women’s bathroom. Really!
So, to capture our experience, we know when we are being dissed. (Both my wife and I worked in my mother in law’s hotel on the west coast of Ireland. I was CEO of a college with a strong tourism and hospitality programme.) maybe I shouldn’t have worn a tie, maybe it was my tweed jacket. We felt that we were seen as rubes, to be sent to not a bad but not a prime table. It just left a bad taste at the start and the excellent service and food wasn’t enough to put it to bed. The very beginning and the very end of service experiences seal the impression. There was a failure this time.

Excellent. It was a perfect way to celebrate a Graduation in our family. The wait staff was aware of our dietary restrictions and all allergies were respectfully acknowledged and the plates served with assurances. We really appreciated this respect. It was a perfect evening.

It’s always a special occasion that takes us to Scaramouche and as expected service and ambience are always excellent, not to mention the food. Dean our server was attentive and had a great sense of humour. 25 years and counting, we will definitely be back for 26.

Scaramouche has always been our go to for special celebrations. This was our last official date before baby. The team reserved us a perfect table where we enjoyed our own intimate conversation while the sunset over the city. Service is always flawless, well anticipated and never intrusive. Exactly what we needed to enjoy the last of our time alone together for a while. The food is always outstanding, from gorgeous presentation to the most intricate mixing of textures and flavours. Thank you for a perfect little celebration! Can’t wait to add wine back to our next special evening at Scaramouche!

The table we had was a bit on the smallish side and not against a wall. Would have preferred a table along a wall for reasons of privacy. Best part of the evening was the excellent service. Excellent wait staff. Great wine choices. Great timing between courses. Thought the food could have been a little more flavourful. I would come back and recommend this restaurant to people. Loved the valet parking service. Good job, guys!

Outstanding. The young gentleman at the coat check, lovely. The hostess, smiling, gracious. The decor contemporary elegance, with an exceptional view of the city. The atmosphere seemed noisy when we arrived but once seated the noise somehow is dissipated. Sommelier on his game. Our server personable and attentive while respecting a distance of diner privacy and exclusive experience. He was knowledgable, and quick to provide perfect recommendations for palate preferences or dietary restrictions. The food beyond perfect. Tied for top spot for food, it’s only competition is a spot in Cortina sentimental to us where my partner and I had our first dinner together. We had a perfect evening. Worth it in every way.

Situated in the basement of a residential building in a quite neighborhood of Summerhill. Quite unusual I think. Going there (on public transport) was a treat itself. Enjoyed every dishes from soup to starter to the main. I had the seared salmon as the main. Crispy skin and tender flesh. It was superb and cooked just right. It was one of the best salmon I had ever had.

Coupled with friendly service and knowledgeable staff. What a pleasant dinning experience. Would definitely recommend it to friends.
