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.

A truly classy restaurant with a great menu, pleasant atmosphere, ambience and attentive and polite wait-staff (as they should be). A Toronto gem!

This restaurant is among the best in Toronto or for that matter anywhere. It's tucked away from the downtown circus but close enough to downtown to be accessible. The food is prepared and presented perfectly and the Maitre d' Alex is attentive and knowledgeable. A real joy for a special night out.

The place is lovely, the food is very good. The Coconut Cream Pie is a can't miss. I've been with some young ladies who they have treated very well, catering to a nut-allergy.

I have been here a few times. A couple of birthdays, Lobsterlicious and 'Just Because' its friday event! The staff are very helpful and friendly. Everything I have ever eaten here has met my high expectations. BUT the best ever is the most wonderful coconut cream pie. I will go here just for a piece of this pie.

It seems like Scaramouche has been around forever. Well, 35 years is forever in this business. Very few restaurants ever achieve that milestone - and even fewer are in the ultra high end of the business. It takes fearsome dedication to keep up very demanding standards year after year. When I think of Scaramouche, the first word that comes to... More

I'm not sure why we haven't visited Scaramouche before, but I am so happy that we celebrated our anniversary at this landmark restaurant. The staff were attentive, friendly, and helpful. Our table had an outstanding view of downtown Toronto and the CN Tower. And on the hottest day of the year so far, the air conditioning was conveniently working well... More

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.
