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.

Scaramouche is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. Food and attention to detail are exemplary. I ordered the special salmon dish and it had the texture of butter. Everyone in our group was delighted with the experience.

Remains one of the Toronto classics one might forget in this age of the "New Trendy Place."
It had been 20 years since the last visit and all we asked was why?
Amazing experience.

Had a wonderful dinner here. Each of us had delicious entrees. We had sublime service as well. The views of the city skyline make this a very special place to dine at when in Toronto.

The restaurant was very nice, and great service. Would have loved to see our server a little more often when we were waiting on the bill or to order, but other than that, it was great! Food was awesome, and the amuse bouche was a nice touch.

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.
