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. Pretty... More

We had dinner here our wedding anniversary, the food was very nice and the restaurant had a good atmosphere and ambiance, my only negative comment is our server was patronising compared to other servers and staff in the restaurant but otherwise a enjoyable evening.

We came for Sunday brunch and had a nice meal. Despite having seen Scott's for a couple of decades this was our first visit. I was surprised at how nicely the interiors looked. Great design! We shared the calamari and shrimp cocktail. Both were presented well and tasted very good. Two of us had the Eggs Benedict with NY strip... More

Scott's is overpriced. You are paying for the swanky ambiance and proximity to the theater. If you're interested in the food, try King's Fish House for more variety and better quality. In the Newport-Mesa area, the best fish joint hands down is The Crab Cooker.

Food and service exceptional. We enjoyed the happy hour and drink specials. Fish was great. The prices are on the high end but worth it.

Last year we had dinner here and enjoyed it, today was a bit disappointing (I would probably give 3.5 out of 5 if I could). Better than average, not as good as very good. Their paella was very tasty, but texture was all wrong--the rice was not short-grain and so didn't absorb enough of the broth--tasted a bit soupy. Calamari... More
