Food and ambience

Local cuisine, Seafood, European, British, Vegetarian Friendly
Originally an oyster warehouse, Scott's has been serving up its legendary seafood since 1851. A conveniently short walk from Green Park and Bond Street tube stations, this Mayfair mainstay uses burgundy leather banquettes and subdued lighting to create an air of old-school elegance which reflects the restaurant's chic clientele. Designed by Martin Brudnizki and highlighted by the exquisite bar topped with onyx and finished in stingray skin, the revamped interior of Scott's still carries the 1960's glamour of yesteryear. Traditional fish and seafood dishes dominate the menu, although seasonal meat and game make an appearance. Atlantic Halibut, Dover Sole and Lobster have proven to be popular

Second visit in just over a month. I thought the experience was even better this time, with service of a high standard. This offers food of a high quality at a premium price, but I think its worth it.

Basically, we were not pleased with the warmth of the waiter who served us. He was rushed, seemed in a bad mood and therefore made us feel rushed. One very unusual thing is that after our starters, he asked us if we had finished with...More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even

I agree with the person who wrote "smart casual to dressed up". I don't think a man without a tie would be turned away. Jeans or tee-shirt (unless covered by a jacket) would certainly be frowned upon. But why go to a... More
