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.

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!

Our party of 3 enjoyed a delicious meal and lovely ambiance. The wine menu was extensive and our waiter was very knowledgeable. We had 2 additional guests join us for a glass of wine and desert and we found the staff to be very accommodating. I would definitely return for a special occasion.

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.

Probably the best meal I have had in 2019. My wife and I were visiting from USA (Louisiana) for a wedding in Toronto. Steak Tartare was a must. We also had the Cauliflower soup for another appetizer. Finished with the veal for her and duck for me. Best part was that we had each dish paired with a glass of wine by our waiter. We put our faith in him and he delivered! Andrew was our spectacular waiter. He guided us through the whole meal and made a lasting memory and special night for us.

Both food and service were outstanding. Our waiter was personable, professional and friendly. Scaramouche never disappoints. It has been our favourite restaurant for the past 30 years. It is successful because it is consistent in its delivery of excellent food and service. By far one of the best restaurants in Toronto.

Servers were really nice and attentive food was good but the lamb was inconsistent. One piece was really soft and didn’t have a strong gamey taste, but the second one was tough and chewy. Duck was done very well, it tasted amazing! We expected a small dessert for our anniversary because we saw review pictures. But we didn’t get one which is ok. Overall, it was a great experience and we will definitely be going again.

My boyfriend and I are from out of town and we make a point of visiting Scaramouche at least once a year. The quality of food and service is consistently amazing. We were lucky enough to have Andrew serving us again on our most recent visit. He served us our first time here 4 years ago and we never forgot his attentive and thoughtful service. We were seated second row away from the window, which we didn’t mind at all. Shortly after, a table cleared up by the window Andrew graciously offered to move us there without us even asking. A small gesture but we were so grateful! Thank you Andrew, we hope to see you again next year!

The view from our seats was spectacular. Our waiter was attentive, catered to our needs and was truly amazing.
Where I had issue was the food. My terrine appetizer tasted thick, lardy and lacked flavour. The only saving grace was the jelly served with it. The scallops were average but filling.

I have had tastier meals at other amazing restaurants and was disappointed in the experience.
