    Every thing about this restaurant was very good. My only problem was the menu indicated there was salmon but didn't specify wild salmon which is my preference. The waiter assured me it was wild and I ordered it but was never wholly convinced. If is really was wild why wouldn't the say so since it is more expensive.

    We enjoyed our dinner. But, we're a little disappointed that the on-line menu was not up to date. Two of the dishes we were looking forward to ordering were not available. The restaurant was apologetic, but we feel they should be more with it! Otherwise, an excellent restaurant.

    Although we really would like to frequent Moscato regularly as we dine out very often and live nearby, the food is although good in quality, is very uninspired and boring and therefore overpriced. We enjoy the dining outside option in summer. Would really love their chef to create more flavorful dishes.

    I've lived in Scarsdale for 28 years, and Moscato has been here a long time. Why, I wondered, have I only been here 5 times? This will change! We went for brunch recently, and had a leisurely, excellent one. Then, we came for lunch...it was late; around 2 PM, yet staff couldn't have been nicer, even when their own lunch was on the table. I love the special menu of three items: salad, hors d'oeuvre and entree, all perfectly-sized portions and the execution of each perfect. And the price? $18! We had deliciously fresh salads, house-made pastas and extremely fresh fish. This is now our go-to place after trying everything else within 20 miles!

    We really enjoyed our Sunday night dinner at Moscato. The food was fresh and light -- great for summer dining. I especially enjoyed the branzino. Service was well-paced for our needs, and the staff was friendly and amusing. There was a lively crowd, with moderate noise level. We were entertaining friends that evening; they appreciated our choice of a good neighborhood restaurant.

    My husband and I had dinner at Moscato to celebrate our anniversary; we enjoyed the food very much, as well as the ambience, although it is a bit dark. I had a special chicken dish and my husband had a pasta with vegetables, which they prepared to his liking. It was a Mon evening, so they may have had more time to do this. We would have rated the service higher, but the waiter neglected to tell us the specials, and we only learned of them when another waiter recited them to his table and seemed to give them more attention since they appeared to be known to the staff.

    It's always great and likely the best place to eat in town. Great specials and lots of excellent regular entrees. Had an iffy night from a service perspective as we had to ask for multiple things multiple times. This is the first time it has ever happened we will be back in a few weeks for sure

    The food at Moscato never lets you down. Each dish from appetizer to dessert is delicious. The bartender knows how to make any cocktail you want and the waiters are very knowledgeable about the menu and the ingredients of each dish. Couldn't be happier, this place never disappoints.

    Moscato is a busy place, at least on weekends, and the noise level, made worse by unnecessary piped in music, diminished our dining experience. The bread was just okay, a caesar salad was very good, and our entrees (soft shell crab and veal scallopine, were good but more fussy than required. We'll probably return sometime, but won't rush to do so.

    While my visit this time was on Father's Day and the restaurant was bustling, the waitstaff is always attentive to all its patrons . The waiters had to do a little sprinting to get to the outside diners with their dishes still warm, and they achieved that. The food is traditional Italian, but with with either a lighter touch or a surprising addition, or a perky herbal seasoning. Everything cooked to perfection even on a hectic night.

    This was a new find for us in our general neighborhood. The first time we went was prime-time on a Saturday night and the place was packed and fairly loud, but we had a reservation for 4 and, though we had to wait a bit and the table was a bit small, we were taken by the general ambiance. The service was attentive, the menu more interesting than the typical local Italian restaurant, and the food was great. Also, the wine list seemed competent, and the wine my friend selected was terrific (unfortunately I don't remember the name!). My wife and I returned a couple of weeks later for my birthday dinner midweek. It was much less crowded, more sedate, and equally enjoyable.

  • Moscato changed its menu
    MJGHVIP
    Dined on 5/31/2014
    We were disappointed with menu changes at Moscato. The watermelon salad now consists of red onion and cucumber, instead of mixed greens that we had liked. We ordered the arugula salad and found it rather plain- - the parmesan slices and plain mushrooms were tasty, but the artichoke pieces were very scant. The cooked dorato now is in a sweet cognac sauce, and the fish had a strong fishy taste that fresh fish should lack. Only the pizza appetizer and Roman pasta were still very good. We liked the dry red wine that my husband ordered.

    We went on a weekend night and found that the tables are too closely situated to each other, and therefore the noise level is too high. Even the waiters have to scuttle between tables to serve. The menu is varied and appealing. The salads were disappointing, but the entrees were ample and generally good.

    Moscato was a very nice find. After frequently dining at Lasardi's we figured that we would try the sister restaurant in Scarsdale. The place is cute but a little tight quartered. the service was extremely attentive and everyone was delighted with their meals. Over all I would recommend it and say that I was very pleasantly surprised.

    I have been to Moscato before for dinner but on this occasion went with two other people for lunch to celebrate a birthday. We had the prix fixe lunch which was quite reasonably priced and included three courses. The pasta course was particularly good. I had the salmon which was pretty good. the sauce was a little lackluster and the presentation not as attractive as I think it could have been but the salmon was cooked as I requested. The dessert, which we shared, was very good. The service was particularly good. Everyone was very attentive and the manager had the dessert presented with a candle for the birthday person. The ambiance is very nice for lunch. Quiet and relaxing. Overall a very nice place to go for lunch.

    I have never been disappointed at Moscatos and this birthday celebration at lunch time was no different, I and my 4 guests. enjoyed an attentive wait staff and excellent food. The Restaurant Week's three=course meal offered well selected choices at a bargain price and was truly "a cut above" Veal and the sea bass were most appreciated and the light dessert of Italian cheesecake or Tiramisu topped of a delightful dining experience that will remain memorable and will make us come back. A quiet ambience enables comfort and one on one conversation.
