Wow! The restaurant was in a gorgeous location with complimentary valet parking. The ambience was amazing. Our waiter Ryan was incredible and made our experience even better. The food was prepared perfectly and tasted amazing! You definitely have to try the coconut creme pie for...dessert, its unlike anything you've ever had.More

We were here to meet a friend and celebrate a birthday. As those who’ve seen my reviews previously have noted, I’m really really picky. I love to eat good food, drink great wine, and engage in intelligent conversation. Scaramouche offers the opportunity to do it...all. Every item our table ordered was perfectly prepared. The wine choices were excellent, and the setting was excellent. We were there a long time. Mostly empty when we arrived at 6:30, the place filled up quickly and was still full when we left after 10. The only negative was that the meal preparation was very slow. Initially we wondered whether we had been forgotten, but always our server appeared just as I started to stand up. Perhaps it the shortage of experienced wait staff Post COVID, but at one of Canadas top restaurants, one shouldn’t have to ask for an additional pour from one’s bottle of wine. I highly recommend dining here.More

Really cool restaurant with some awesome food and impeccable service. Inside is a sophisticated restaurant with a great views of downtown Toronto. For our meal we started with the Foie Gras Terrine and the Bread and Hummus for Two. For our main dish, we had...the Australian Lamb Chops and the Peppercorn Fettuccine. For dessert, I had the famous Coconut Cream and the Chocolate and Cherry dessert. I recommend all of these dishes! This was such a nice evening out with amazing food. It was an exceptional dining experience and excellent service. I highly recommend this fabulous French restaurant but make sure to grab reservations to secure your spot.More

After more than 40 years of celebrating significant life events and memorable evenings at Scaramouche…our tradition has ended! Why? Because a simple glass of tap water is now $3.50! That’s right…Scaramouche now charges $3.50 for a glass of water! I’m sad to say I will...never dine there again.More

The expectations based on reputation brought us disappointment. While the food was good there was nothing outstanding about it. The tuna tartare was very good, the peppercorn pasta was good but not in anyway outstanding and the scallops were miniscule. The coconut cream pie was...barely passable but the cremeux was better. Too many good restaurants to bother returning here.More

If you are celebrating any joyous life celebration, or just want a great night out, this is your restaurant. I have been here a number of times and it is always excellent in many ways. The food is always excellent. There is no bad choice....We had the duck, chicken, pasta and fish (as mains). All very good. The service was very attentive but not overwhelming. One of the best overall in the city. 9/10More

My husband and I travelled to Toronto from Vancouver to visit our daughter who had just started her first year at U of T. We had dinner at Scaramouche to celebrate her 19th birthday. The food and service were excellent. However, I thought the location...was really odd and the ambience wasn't as pretty as I expected. Perhaps in the summer, when the patio is open, and some flowers outside, the setting is more appealing. I'm sure when the sun sets and the candles are lit, the ambience of the restaurant is a little better. With our early dinner reservation, it was light and sitting in front of a vacant patio felt a little cold. Nevertheless, we had a wonderful, knowledgeable server (I wish I could remember his name) and a lovely experience with our daughter.More

Waited over 15 minutes for our reserved table while staff chatted up the regulars. The food was decent but the service was under par. After our meals were delivered, we couldn't find a waiter to bring us pepper for 5-10 minutes. The 16 inch pepper...shaker was plopped down on our table, as the waiter did another disappearing act.More

Simply outstanding!!! Felt special on numerous occasions throughout the evening. Started with valet parking. Brought my own high end Cab that was decanted. PEI oysters were some of the best I ever had. Grilled octopus was delightful. Duck with braised cabbage was a perfect medium...rare. But the star of the show was the filet of venison - super tender and full of flavour. Ended with the best coconut cream pie Best ever! Had an 8pm seating and stayed til after midnight Very Highly Recommended!!! Top 10 in Canada!More

This restaurant, almost hidden down a cul-de-sac lane, is a bit of a find. Around for 40+ years, it has the charm and elegance of a spot that is both contemporary, and classic, at the same time. Our waiter, Kevin, was top notch. The sommolier,...Colin, was knowledgeable. Each dish was spot-one tastey, and well-proportioned. We went for our anniversary, and will certainly return for the good food, good atmosphere, and outstanding culinary experience.More

This is the perfect place for an anniversary dinner. The atmosphere is relaxing, the view very good, the service impeccable, and the food first-rate. We hadn't been at Scaramouche since the pandemic hit, and we were glad to get back. I had the beet salad,...the duck breast and the chocolate ganache and was impressed. The other members of our party were as well. A nice bottle of Morgon completed the dinner. Highly recommended!More

Scaramouche was a wonderful dining experience. Made even lovelier by Michael and his colleagues. Here you will find a great view of downtown Toronto, a menu made of French classics, and great products prepared with remarkable talent. They were kind enough to split EVERY dish...we ordered to make life easier for us, and to accommodate my wife's intolerance to goat cheese. We had oysters, tuna tartare, lobster and the rack of lamb. Everything was cooked to perfection, lobster was melting in our mouth, lamb was incredibly tender, tuna was absolutely amazing, and Lucky Lime PEI oysters were delicious. They serve oysters with lemon, horseradish and a special condiment which we could not identify, it seemed to be shallots marinated in a mignonette, anyhow it was awesome. Desserts were up to par, best coconut cream pie ever. If you are a foodie looking for a great dinner in Toronto, book a table, you won't be disappointed.More
