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...
