Chef Marcello, with the open kitchen concept, provides an entertaining view of what really goes on "in the kitchen". Wife Nancy and staff ensure that your dining experience is the best you can get and are always attentive. The food is amazingly mediterranean with something for everyone. The wine list is limited but has, yet again, something for everyone. The crab cakes are the best I've ever had outside of Boston. If you're into desserts, you have to have the home-made carrot cake, Its amazing. Check for when the guitarist is playing - he's really good!

I went to Scorpion with a friend last week and what a pleasant surprise! I love good food and wine, eat out often and am always looking for something new to add to the repertoire in King/Aurora. Amazing food options - sea bass was outstanding. Looking forward to sampling more of this diverse menu over time. Nancy was a terrific hostess and took much pride in delivering a great dining experience. Guitarist was amazing - great touch. Would like to see a more diverse wine list but we were given a couple to try and were happy with our choice. Looking forward to sampling some of the tapas choices next time!! Shocked at this review from "Mateia". It is one thing to be disappointed but this person's words are pretty hard and in my opinion, way off base. Enjoy Scorpion!

Scorpion is one sweet spot that Aurora can be proud of-I have dined there twice now and will be a regular patron of Marcello and Nancy's. The food is to die for, the menu extensive, the service the best and the ambiance with the guitar player is unique and relaxing. Marcello and Nancy are friendly and know their stuff. They walk the talk.

Little credence should be given to Mateia's review. Having been in the restaurant at the same time, I had opportunity that night to observe both she and her friend clean their plates, refresh their drinks and interact positively with the staff. One must wonder how an individual can write such an unprofessional and unfair review after presenting themselves as satisfied customers. It is disappointing to see people speak out of both sides of the mouth and certainly indicates their quality of character.

Hopefully when Mateia has the 'urge' to dine downtown, she will travel as a passenger and utilize the the time to improve not only her manners, but also her culinary assessment and written language skills.

Can't wait for my next Scorpion meal!

Visiting from Montréal, I took my father here, he lives in the area and heard it was good and authentic. This was sadly, not the case. We felt very overcharged for such mediocre food. Also was not impressed by the rushed service. We will not be going back. Maybe this place should try to make more local food.

As a chef & owner it is my responsibility to correct some misleading facts in this publication. While no restaurant is perfect, at Scorpion we always welcome constructive criticism so that we can continuously aim to be our best. Unfortunately we have to complete disagree with this review.

Scorpion has been design with a contemporary, modern European ambience with a
classic Barcelona style wall drafted by a Italian designer well know in the industry.
Regarding his categorical comments about the wine list and our stunning menu, as a boutique restaurant we prefer to offer a more tailored wine offering that pairs well with our distinctive flavors, while the menu has been design by a master chef with mediterranean roots, having achieved gold status in the culinary world, continuos teaching at college level and developed many successful enterprise in Europe and North America. We are really proud of our identity, uncommon & uniqueness concept.

This opinion will not hinder our operation and we’ll continue to provide our professional and friendly service to those willing to accept it. We are always looking forward to introduce new people to our extraordinary and unique menu and satisfy their tastebuds.

With Love The Scorpion Chef
