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 best restaurant in Toronto and has been since it opened in 1981. That's quite a streak! I first started going there in 1983, and I return whenever I am back in TO. With stunning views of the TO Skyline, the restaurant features Canadian-sourced seasonal ingredients and dishes and warm and knowledgable service. A wine list assembled by... More

Located in an apartment building with a nice view of downtown Toronto. The restaurant is first class, a very pleasant setting and decor, a sophisticated menu. Everything is well prepared ans service is excellent. They also have a pasta bar with less fancy and less pricy menu. Both offer good value. One of my favorite places to eat in the... More

I have been in this restaurant many times in the last 25 years and I was always very pleased. The sommelier is very knowledgeable and has a good selection of fine wines to pair with any dish on the menu. The chef deserves the best compliments for consistently pleasing the palate to the highest level and the staff is perfectly... More

we were served so fast. We didn't even have time to finish eating they would remove the plates. It felt like they were trying to rush us out. We had appetizer, main course and dessert in under 1 hour...really..so sad

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
