My husband and I went to Scott's on our first date- we're going back for Valentine's Day. The love harp music and alcove dining makes Scott's the most romantic place ever! The food was delicious. I had the sea bass & my husband had a steak- the best! I can not wait to go back.

This is a great restaurant if you want be able to talk to your lunching companions. Most downtown Gainesville places are too loud to be able to be heard. Food is excellent, if a little fancier than my usual hamburger and therefore a bit more pricey than that hamburger as well. Great place to go on occasion!

We throughly enjoyed both our meals and the wait staff was excellent! I had the pappardel with lobster and it was one of the best dishes I have had in a long time! The atmosphere was casual. Would highly recommend!

We were not real thrilled with calamari but the addition of the fried lemon was awesome! I will try that at home! The wait staff and atmosphere was... More

For an upscale restaurant with a price to match we found the service to be lacking. We were there on a week-night, the restaurant was not crowded. We would see our waiter go by never looking our way (we were in one of the little rooms). It did not appear that he was overburdened with tables. A couple of different... More

My husband and I rarely eat steak but thoroughly enjoyed the quality and atmosphere at Scotts I highly recommend this restaurant when you want a high end steakhouse experience at a more than fair price.

My wife and I visited Scott's for the first time. We had heard many great things about Scott's and they all were true! Our server - Jeffrey was excellent and tended to our needs and had a great personality. The food was perfect and the dessert was even better. You wont find a nicer establishment for an upscale experience.
