“Great if you stay downstairs.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Recently went for a "girls night out." This was my second experience with the lounge. First time was downstairs and then upstairs for the movie. DO NOT eat upstairs. Staff are unpleasant at best, downright rude at the worst. You have to wait for the food to be delivered out of the theater and the crawl over the other patrons with your food to go back to your seat in the theater! Not only do you miss part of the movie - you have to be a gymnast to boot!

I would go to the restaurant to eat, then just go to the regular movie seating. It is simply not worth the hassle.

“Scene Restaurant in Monaco Pictures at Bridge Street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

This was our first time to Scene. We've shied away from it because their ad promotes it mainly as a bar. However, Scene is L-shaped. The bar is around the corner from the main restaurant area that opens into the Monaco Pictures lobby. The restaurant area has tables for four, and a good number of large comfortable booths that could each seat six people. We chose a booth because of the comfy padded benches. We told our waitress that we had a movie showtime in 45 minutes, and asked what was fast. She suggested an appetizer, or sushi, since pizzas and such would not be as fast. Not caring for sushi, we ordered a Chicken Quesadilla appetizer. About six minutes later, it arrived at our table. This "shareable" appetizer comes in four slices, with guacamole, sour cream, and a diced tomato & onion garnish. It might be an appetizer for four people. For the two of us, it was a nice lunch. It was very good, and tasted as if we were in a Mexican restaurant. We did not feel rushed, and finished our food before our movie showtime. We did not have to buy movie tickets, because we had bought them online and printed them before we left home. The restaurant did not appear to be playing music, but we could hear the music playing in the Monaco lobby. All in all, it was a pleasant experience. I expect that we will be back -- perhaps as soon as next week.

“Much Better Than Expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

I have a pretty strict diet so I'm always a little leary of new places. I knew they did a sort of Tapas style menu as well as sushi. I'm not a sushi fan so we opted to share several other plates. We got the fries (both the sweet potato and the cumin fries), both the chicken skewers, steak kabobs and beef satay. All of it was excellent. The wine and beer options were pretty good and the service was great. Our server was sure to ask us if we were seeing a movie and what time (we were) and then to make sure we knew how much time we had and get us our check in plenty of time, so that we weren't rushed at any point. Drinks stayed filled and plates cleared as needed. We'll definitely be going there more often.

“Convenient but mediocre food for price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

This restaurant housed in the monaco movie theater is a nice place to meet with friends before or after a movie but food is not worth the price at all. Great concept, but very overpriced.
