Pasta Bar & Incredible Desserts

Not only will you find world-class food at Scaramouche Restaurant in Toronto, but the panoramic views and wonderful dining experience offered are unprecedented, despite it’s initially confusing location.

Scaramouche is found in an apartment building on Benvenuto Place, so expectations are typically pretty low when diners arrive. But its perfected dishes blow any negative preconceptions out of the water. Some of their most sought after dishes include Bufala mozzarella, venison that’s wrapped in bacon and served with spaetzle, and a Quebec duck served with foie gras, duck pastrami, prunes, grapes, maple cider jelly, pickled wild leeks, sourdough toast, and vincotto, a sweet condiment with grape, plum, and spice tastes. It also offers a pasta bar that’s a little more casual than the rest of restaurant with handmade pasta and various toppings.

Some people go just for the desserts, which include items like coconut cream pie covered in white chocolate shavings and chocolate sauce or the lemon poppy seed cake with Ontario strawberries, buttermilk sorbet, and meringue.

Mondays through Thursdays throughout the winter, Scaramouche offers a three-course prix menu for $62 with lobster as its main focus. The event is appropriately titled Lobsterlicious, and people scramble to get reservations for it each year. Whether it’s for this event or just dinner or dessert, Scaramouche is an excellent place to dine in Toronto.

This recipe calls for dark chocolate in the ganache to balance out the sweetness of the Nutella. For a more kid-friendly cake, use milk chocolate. This is part of BA's Best, a collection of our essential recipes.

Scaramouche Restaurant: Pasta Bar & Incredible Desserts - Recipes

Scaramouche is likely one of the very, few fine dining restaurants that has survived the decades. From the moment you drive up to the complimentary valet to the time you get your key back it is truly a 1st class experience. The restaurant is beautifully appointed with gorgeous views. Although in an unlikely location at the base of a residential high rise building, you feel like you are in a European garden setting.
The staff are all 100% on point, there is nothing left to chance. Very polished operation.
The food is a great match to the environment and service. Very well prepared, wide variety of great dishes. Very extensive wine selection. Having a dinner at Scaramouche is really an eventful, 1st class experience. Pricey but well worth the experience.

This is an "update" review. I have been coming to Scaramouch on an occasional basis for nearly (I think) 30 years. It had been a while since I had been to Scaramouche so we visited again, this time Scaramouche Pasta Bar & Grill (couldn't get reservation for main room). I have always considered Scaramouche and the pasta bar to the the same restaurant, they share the same space, just different sections and menus but the food and service are equally good. The pasta bar menu is less expensive than the main room but the food just as excellent. I had Romain Hearts with caesar dressing to start and the Peppercorn Fettucine. Both did not disappoint.
One of the things that makes Scaramouche's my favourite is its consistency. Food is ALWAYS meticulously prepared and the service the perfect balance between attentive and intrusive. In my opinion, Scaramouche wait staff are among the best in the city.
At the time of writing this, Scaramouche (the main room) is rated by Tripadvisor as the # 2 restaurant in Toronto. I have not yet visited the # 1 rated restaurant BUT it has not been around anywhere near as long as Scaramouche so I still consider Scaramouche #1.

Both Scaramouche and the Scaramouche Pasta Bar are fantastic restaurants. Both are expensive with the Pasta Bar being the less expensive of the two. That being said, the food is so good it still represents a good value. My "Fish" entree was fresh, light and incredibly tasty. The piece de resistance, of course, is their coconut cream pie. It is their most popular dessert and it is fantastic! Great views of downtown, most impressive after dark.

Food: Incredible. I ordered the snap pea ravioli, my boyfriend ordered the veal spaghetti. Finished the dinner with a dessert wine (cannot remember the name but it was from the Niagara region-definitely recommend).

Staff: Our server (I think his name was Jordan) was SO nice. Sweet, knew everything on the menu and was able to make the best recommendations.

Location: A little bizarre. It's underneath a condominium building. If you think you've pulled up to a set of apartments, you're in the right place. They do offer free valet parking which is nice, but I wish I had read somewhere on the site that it was a little awkward to get to. Hopefully this review helps others out !

Overall: Great experience. Perfect view of the downtown core including the CN Tower. The clientele were a little. senior.. (we're 26 and 28) but it's a great place!

Toronto has many restaurants and this is among the best. It's quietly tucked away and offers a lovely view of downtown. We ate in the Pasta Bar - a little less pricey and more casual. Very nice. Everything is made fresh and with great care and quality. Reservations are a must. We went early (5:30 pm). The service is terrific.

I dine out quite a bit in Toronto and it's rare that it's a truly exceptional 'Chef-made' experience. Scaramouche is in a non-obvious spot in the base of an apartment building tucked away just off of Avenue road, a few minutes drive north of Yorkville. It doesn't look too fancy but you quickly know that this is a true Toronto institution. There is a patio with an awesome view of the downtown core. (Across from De LaSalle school).
It was a special treat and we had a blast. Thank you Ryan for being so great with the 'Elly Shelley' show. I would recommend the pasta bar or main dining area, these guys know what they're doing. It's one of the last greats that focus on wowing with taste and service, worth every penny! If you want to impress someone with a memorable experience and meal- Scaramouche. They define the league that most Yorkville restaurants 'should' be at and they don't need the flash to deliver it.

Menu Description: "Smoked ham, smoked turkey, two cheeses, battered and fried until golden with raspberry preserves and dusted with powdered sugar."

When pondering casual chains with the best Monte Cristo sandwiches, two come to mind: Bennigan's and Cheddar's recipes. At each chain the sandwich is built with turkey, ham, and cheese, then it’s battered and fried, dusted with powdered sugar, and served with raspberry preserves for dipping. It probably sounds strange if you've never had one, but Monte Cristo alums know it all tastes pretty darn great together. I hacked Bennigans' version years ago for my cookbook Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2, and recently, on a trip to Charlotte, North Carolina, I was able to get my hands on Cheddars' signature version of this famous sandwich.

I planned for the mission by bringing along a cooler of ice so that I could get a fresh sample safely back home. Once I was back in the lab in Vegas, I subjected the sandwich to a series of tasty tests, burned through several versions of batter, and eventually assembled this new Cheddar's Monte Cristo copycat recipe that I think is even better than my previous Bennigan's hack. The better batter is the big secret here—it's light and crispy and perfectly golden brown, and the sandwich features two kinds of cheese, both white and yellow American. Will this be the best Monte Cristo you've ever had? You’re about to find out.
