Delicious Birthday!

I came here for my birthday and it was a wonderful experience. The lobster bisque was the best I ever had. We immediately ordered another bowl after we had the first. The scallops with risotto were perfect and the chocolate cake with raspberry puree was otherworldly. The service was truly... read more

My family visited Scarborough Fair on May 31st and noticed tension between our server and the manager. Our server seemed to be new and maybe was making mistakes but we were very uncomfortable during our entire meal. While the food was overall acceptable, my wife had to send her steak back because it was well done and she had asked... More

Rich, we're so disappointed to read about your most recent experience at Scarborough Fair. We strive to make sure that all of our guests have 5-star experience when they join us, but it sounds like we really missed the mark when you dined with us. We're known for our cooked to order and flavorful steaks, so we're very disappointed to... More

We went on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend and reserved an alcove table and were able to get one. The alcoves are nice because it is a private table. The man who greeted us was extremely nice and welcoming and made us feel totally at home. I felt that really differentiated them from other restaurants. Our service was also excellent.... More

Were here for our anniversery. Our daughter gave us a gift certificate. We were seated in one of the alcoves on the stairs. Our waiter was an amiable young man who is currently a medical student. We both ordered one of the specials, steak and king crab legs. Both were excellent. Service was fast and efficient. We went at 430pm... More

We were at this restaurant the night before Mother's Day so this may have contributed to the wait even with a reservation and the lack of attention of the service staff. While the food was just good it was very salty which I find unacceptable to me. The service was really not great and we did feel ignored by the... More

We went there for our wedding anniversary, and got one of the alcove tables. They had decorated it with an ugly pink cardboard standup that had pieces chipped off and had seen better days and some pink hearts. It was not to my taste. The escargot appetizer was like something that had just been microwaved and did not taste fresh.... More

My BF and I went to Scarborough Fair on Saturday evening for dinner. We had reserved an alcove for dinner, which turned out to be very nice for having an intimate, romantic dinner. We shared a bowl of New England clam chowder, and a Scarborough winter salad, both of which were delicious. My BF had Flounder St. Moritz, which he... More

Hidden off the main highway, this restaurant is a step above the many casual places around it. Food is wonderful. Nice wine list and service is the best. Nice dining experience as the atmosphere is quaint and quiet. Great place to go for celebration.

I love it here. We have sat in different places and do not always reserve an alcove. The alcoves are wonderful, but I also like sitting in different places to check out the decorations. I love the butterfly room (there's a huge wooden butterfly on the ceiling). If venturing out on a busy weekend, or for a busier time like... More
