We first visited this restaurant in the 1970s, used it often for years then, joined a club with very high standards and a personal touch and drifted away from Scaramouche and other high end establishments.
Recently friends invited me to join them at Scaramouche. They use Scaramouche regularly and, as regulars, received a personal greeting and above average courtesy. They asked for a special table but had not reserved it, were refused as the table was taken but were accommodated nicely at a compromise location.
I note that some reviews are critical of the "tone" of the restaurant. I agree that it is reserved and, with a Canadian tone, formal. I know one of the waiters from another restaurant I have used regularly. She is a true professional. I observed her studying the service and crowd and guiding the service. They are formal but highly professional in my opinion.The emphasis is on the food not folksy relations with the staff.
I am surprised and pleased at the very high standard of food service and preparation. It was simply flawless, if anything better that in years gone by.
As well, the wine list was superb, including very fairly priced excellent wines that were very "sleepers" i.e. well chosen but not famous. If one knows how to order there are superb choices there.
Scaramouche is pricey, very pricey. Only those who prize quality and care not about cost will enjoy it. But, if you have the budget, it is a fine as any restaurant I have visited in Canada.
