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.

The food, service and view of the city was spectacular. We weren't rushed and it allowed time to sit with a drink and chat after dinner. Overall it was again a spectacular evening that leaves you talking about Scaramouche to your family and friends.

Celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary I was told by some friends that Scaramouche makes special occasions special. Did not feel like that at all. Nobody mentioned or said anything throughout the night and only when we ordered their famous cream pie did they acknowledge it with writing it on the plate. Maybe I should not have had higher expectations.

We have not been to Scaramouche for a long time, However, the food, service and window seating overall were excellent. Unfortunately the table next to ours was occupied by four very loud speaking men, which at times was a little over bearing. In all though a great 80th birthday dinner.
Thanks.

Your categories are irrelevant. Scaramouche is fine cuisine of the highest kevel, with impeccable service. One goes there for that - superb food, superior service, a restaurant not a bar or sports joint.

I felt that the creativity in the dessert that I had was greater than the main course which I had. The main course was very good, but the level of presentation and complexity of the dessert was higher. I believe that when I was last at Scaramouche the complexity of the main course was greater and "more special" in what was provided. As a person who really, really appreciates this I was therefore a little disappointed. We have high regard for Scaramouche and trust that you maintain the wonderful standards of high cuisine that we associated with your restaurant.

Skirmish lived up to its reputation of being a source of exquisite food that is carefully prepared and presented to create and satisfy your appetite as well as your pallet. My wife and I started with the oysters from Ireland, followed by Irish Salmon for her and Venison for myself, all cooked perfectly with a generous complement of vegetables. In the desert was Apple Cake - an interesting and delicious version.

The view is astounding, especially at night when you can see all the lights. The service was spot on and our winter was always unobtrusive until we needed him. He was also very knowledgeable about the fare. There was a surprise at the end of the night, as the chef had somehow discovered that it was our anniversary and had written in beautiful script "Happy Anniversary" on our dessert platter. All in all, a very enjoyable experience.

This was my first visit to the fabled Scaramouche, and it did not disappoint! From the complimentary valet parking on arrival to the personal greeting at the end of the meal, this was a perfect place to celebrate my daughter's 15th birthday.
The location is unusual - effectively the basement of an apartment building. What you do not realize on arrival is that the apartment building is built on the side of a hill, so the restaurant has fantastic view over midtown and downtown Toronto.
The vibe is classy and understated, attracting a wide span of ages and pleasantly free of the braying Bay Street crowd that plagues so many of Toronto's high end restaurants. The place has a buzz - but it is focused on real conversation and the food!
The food is, quite simply, fantastic. I started with the octopus special appetizer (perfectly marinated and grilled) followed by the venison (pictured below) and concluded with a (shared) dish of Scaramouche's legendary coconut cream pie. My companions waxed lyrical about their filet mignon and the seafood "stew". All of us were impressed by two things - the intrinsic quality of the ingredients; and the unusual combination of flavors. The "amuse bouche" offered before the main course was a perfect demonstration of this - a delicate smoked salmon paired with tartare and a couple of other ingredients that I forget.
All in all, a fabulous experience.

We had dinner with a friend from out of town to celebrate a promotion. My husband's dish was not cooked to his liking, the waitress apologized and instantly the dish was removed from the table and corrected and was exactly to his liking. The 3 of us had the coconut cream pie - it was a mile high and to die for!! That alone was worth the drive. It is also great to have complimentary valet parking, makes getting to dinner so much easier.

...and folks weren’t lying about the Coconut Cream Pie. Violated my diet.,.but worth it!!!

We dined with friends who were visiting from Australia and, as usual, our dining experience at Scaramouche did not disappoint. Food and presentation was excellent, service was wonderful and the venue was lovely. Scaramouche offers such an incredible night time view of downtown Toronto. It was the perfect venue to host our friends. And, we had to finish our lovely evening by sharing a delicious slice of coconut cream pie!
