Great place if you are looking to dine on the early side. By 8:15 PM the place is emptying out. So if you are looking for a lively atmosphere on a Saturday night, avoid going there. Food was average. There are no vegetarian entrees. Service was decent.

I've been going to Scutra since it first opened, over 10 years ago. I have never had a bad experience here. Outrageously good cocktails, wonderful, inventive food, and a really friendly and outgoing staff. I often sit at the bar, where conversations start almost immediately. It's a great place to go by yourself, with friends, or for special occasions.

Scutra is our favorite restaurant in Arlington. It is our place to go when we want to enjoy the company of good friends and fine dining in our town. The place is small, but that should not in any way diminish the experience. The food and service are just terrifice. The menu is always creative and high quality.

On a recent vist with friends the server was exceptional, handling all our quirky questions and dietary needs such as no fat items, steaks well done and allergies. He rose to the challenge when asked to recommend a red wine to go with our diverse selections. And always leave room for their desserts!

Inventive new European cuisine, fresh ingredients, amazing flavor and texture combinations, They are knowledgeable about the wine and beer they serve without a hint of pretension. Terrific selection of Belgian and Belgian style beers. Ample selection of wines with many wines available by the glass.

A groupon brought us to Scutra, and this could become one of my favorite restaurants. The exterior is rather plain, but the interior is smart and lively. I have driven by this restaurant for years, and never thought that the ordinary exterior hid a trendy, modern cuisine. The dinner menu is really exceptional, with a wide variety of options. I had the mahi-mahi, on red rice, and it was wonderful. The fish was perfectly cooked, with baby green beans and a light, tasty sauce. Appetizers included scallop rolls and calimari fries, both well worth the calories. If the menu has a weakness, it lay in the desserts. The desserts were heavy and/or quirky with little fresh fruit or lighter sweets. A mousse or creme brule would have been a good addition.

I thought the service was excellent, our waiter was well acquainted with the menu and very helpful. The pace of the meal was leisurely, but not slow, and there was no pressure to clear the table after our meal. The groupon was a great way to introduce an out of the way restaurant!
