About the restaurant
We had the most amazing experience. Josh our server very friendly and knowledgable of the menu and history of Akira Back . We met Sous chef Kim and answered all of our questions about the menu. The attention to every detail with table maintenance was spot on and the food was well presented and simple. The food was delicious and fresh. We will definitely recommend this restaurant to our friends. Thanks again for a memorable experience.

About the restaurant
The food did not disappoint in any way. We did the chefs choice five course meal and it was truly outstanding. The octopus tacos and the venison carpaccio were truly amazing. The service was equally outstanding. They were very attentive. I would go back in a heartbeat. Best meal of 2019 for us!

I tried the premium tasting menu which had about 12 tastings and 1 complimentary dish from the chef. I loved most of the things I tried. They were very tasty and fresh. The service was really great as well. It’s not the most aesthetically pleasing spot but the food and service makes up for it.

Service was great and fine dining was quite the experience. It was definitely art on a plate but if you’re looking to be full after than I recommend eating a snack before. The wine pairing was quite expensive for what you get. $135 for 8ounces total isn’t worth it for moderate wine enthusiasts. But overall great experience complementary valet and parting gift was a nice surprise. I would recommend

Awesome charcuterie and fondue. Great cocktails and wine selection. Be sure to reserve early as it is a very small, intimate bar. Servers are very friendly and knowledgeable about menu items.

What a lovely night out! Grey Gardens was the best high end dining experience we've had in a year, at least. Excellent food, with several standout dishes -- I'm thinking here of the spicy beef tartare, green tomato salad, agnolloti and a delicious, nostalgic parfait dessert -- and the service was warm and attentive. Given the reputation for hip scenester clientele and a loud 70s soundtrack of Isley Brothers tunes, we expected to be a somewhat unusual or unwelcome presence -- an 18th pre-birthday party with two teenagers and a tween, and one of the adults a non-drinker. But they brought out a quiet celebratory dessert for the birthday girl, the mocktails were great and the lone drinker enjoyed her glass of wine very much. Bravo!

Food was superb. Unfortunately my lobster pasta dish was served pretty close to room temperature and they hadn’t warmed the bowl it was served in. The wines are expensive but I ordered one of the least expensive from the south of France and it was good. We would return😊

My best friend and I meet in Montreal for a girl’s getaway— our time is not complete without a dinner at this lovely restaurant. From the moment you walk in you’re greeted with warmth and made to feel like you’re the most important guest. The food is outstanding— incredibly authentic Italian cuisine—and the service is impeccable. They have an impressive wine list along with knowledge regarding the different selections. We love coming here and it’s a true delight to dine in this lovely restaurant.

This was our first time back to Scaramouche in 12 or 13 years. Sometimes you worry that something’s not going to live up to your memory of it - that was not the case here. We received the same kind and efficient service and at another of the best meals of our lives. Scaramouche may not have the pizzazz of the flavour-of-the-day hot spots around, but they do things right from top to bottom.

This is our third time here. Food snd service are as usual impeccable. The only reason why I am not giving it a 5-star rating is it’s tip calculation. I have no problem of the restaurant adding automatically an 18% tip, which is fully disclosed anyway. I do however have a HUGE problem in the fact that the 18% is calculated on the he after-tax amount. In other words, I was paying 18% tip on the 13% tax. I know, a lot of places do that and it’s just down right unethical.

Lovely and elegant dinner choosing a la carte items mostly from the specials and tapas. Highlights included gomae made with kale, sesame and nuts; the chef's sashimi selection; seasonal tempura with matcha salt; and Shima Abi Namero. Attentive service was helpful, friendly and not uptight. Such a wonderful evening!
