Impressive Service with Great Food

I guess we were a little luckier than some of the other reviewers! Five of us dined there. The table was set for six, and the hostess did a lousy job of clearing one place setting. Our waiter was Alex(ander). Ambiance: A little loud but comfortable. Appetizers: We ordered flat bread and... read more

The scallops were divine and beautifully presented. My friends had the sole and lobster bisque. Service was attentive without being overbearing. Delightful evening.

I visited Scott's twice on a recent trip, and was delighted both times. The first time, a group of us came in late on a Sunday evening, and were immediately seated at a nice table. The bread was delicious sourdough, which is never nearly as good back home on the east coast. I stuck with appetizers, and loved the lobster... More

WELCOME TO OC RESTAURANT WEEK 2015! The best part of OC Restaurant week is being able to try upscale restaurants at a more "affordable" price. Of course it can mean portions smaller to a "tasting" size, but at least you can say you've been, and have tasted the food. Each year my friend Linda and I try to pick a... More

Went there years ago and looked forward to having their Chiopino, which is a seafood medley. Then is was great!. This time, they changed the recipe and it came with a super-spicy tomato sauce that I had to send back. Years ago it was served in a white wine sauce. Then they recommended the seafood paste. Again it came in... More

We won't be back to Scott's. I'm not saying it was awful, but there are so many other places in the area to choose from. We decided to come here for our Valentine's dinner. There was nothing special. The meal was decent, but just that. The dessert was kind of bad. As we walked in I noticed buckets of roses... More

Was here for dinner with colleagues from local office and everybody had a good time. I had vegetarian pasta and chocolate gelato which was good. The service was friendly and the restaurant has a nice ambience. Overall a good dining experience.

We have dined at Scott's a few times for brunch with family. Scott's has a nice interior design. Service is excellent! Calamari Provençal appetizer is delicious. 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 it! French toast with Nutella is yummy. Bottomless Mimosas...
