Steak with poached eggs in red wine is so good! Steaks were cooked perfectly. The eggs are sitting in a bed of wilted spinach. Loved... read more

This Scott's is one of our favorites. They have attentive staff as well as a beautiful restaurant. (Some Scott's are lacking in decor as well as quality of staff). They have festively decorated it for the holidays...

Scott's has always been a good pre theater,concert dinner. It is located in the arts district so is very convenient. There is reasonable valet parking and you are able to leave your car while you go to the theater or concert. This evening I tried the kale salad. I should have been more careful because I thought it was fresh... More

I have been to Scott's several times for lunch with customers and the food is always excellent! It is a great place to take customers for a special lunch. The restaurant is very pretty, but not stuffy. I think the menu changes periodically but I haven't made a bad choice. Today I had the grilled mahi mahi with spaghetti zucchini... More

Had the Macadamia nut spinach side and ($8) and the fish tacos ($11 for two mini tacos). Fish tacos were good enough to order again. Macadamia nut spinach side -oh, gee, how hard did you try to make this tasteless?! Couldn't take the nuts. Spinach was totally cooked to be tasteless and just awful! Bread and butter were good.
