We are from Tampa Fla, and moved here a year ago. We normally go to Bern's Steakhouse in Tampa Fla. It is a very well known place. Well I must say the Scott's beats that.. You need to expand to Florida.... We will be back a lot more.. No complaints on anything..

We always enjoy our experience
We always enjoy our experience at Scott's Downtown. The staff is very courteous and attentive without being excessively so. The daily risotto is exceptional, as is, the peanut butter and chocolate dessert (divine in it's simplicity!).

We LOVE Scott's!!!! We had an awesome lunch Friday. Upon entering the resturant we were greeted with a smile and seated promptly. The new location is amazing and comfortable. Our server was Clint who always goes the extra mile to make sure you feel at home. Our food was perfect in every way from the salads to the main dish. The food is always on point. The menu has an endless list of food selection that will please everyone. The food is fresh and made to order but if you are visiting for lunch you will still make it back to work on time:) lunch and dinner is always out of this world.

The new venue is awesome. The Easter brunch was fantastic, especially the cold seafood (shrimp, oysters and mini crab claws)

My family and I got together for Easter Brunch as we do every year, we try different places and we all agreed that Scotts Downtown was fantastic. The restaurant was beautiful, there are seperate rooms that will accomodate a party of 2 up to a larger group like ours of 9+. The variety of food was unbelievable fron the salads to the main course to the deserts. Scott came into our room and introuduced himself to us. We ♡ Scotts!

Don't miss this gem in Gainesville,
This is a serious restaurant. The food is superb, alcove dining and excellent service. I was very impressed.

Had the prime filet, one of the best I can recall. My friend had a great ribeye that he raved about. Wine was presented properly and service was very good. Would definitely go there again.

Excellent food and great service is what we can always count on at Scott's. Scott's new location is just as cozy and comfortable as his last one. I always enjoy his menu and his wine and drinks. We are Lakeview parents and even though the Lakeview Prom was upstairs at the same time, our dinner we had in the restaurant was still cozy and quiet.
We also appreciate his continuing support of the Community and Challenged Child and Friends!

Scott's great after the move
The new restaurant is bigger, but still lovely, featuring the small intimate rooms for couples. Food still outstanding.

Incredible service and food. Go. You will not be disappointed.

Took my wife for her birthday and she enjoyed it very much. The waiter was great and was very attentive to our needs and did an excellent job. We have been bragging to everyone how nice the environment was and what a wonderful place it is. The food was exceptional and I could not have expected it to be any better than what it was. We will definitely be revisiting soon and bringing friends with us the next time.

Can't wait to go back
This was our first time dining in the new location. In addition to the main dining area, I noticed that they have a large, private room that appeared to be able to accommodate a very large group. There were also tables set up outside and others inside along the windows. Once of the window tables appeared to be surrounded by plush, wing chairs. We opted for a private, secluded table for two. The music was a just the right volume to be able to hear it but still be able to converse quietly. They were more than willing and able to work around my dietary restrictions (lactose and gluten intolerant). I have never had a disappointing meal at Scott's. The Chilean Sea Bass was easily one of the best meals I've ever eaten. You need to eat here.

This was the best restaurant
This was the best restaurant experience I have had in a long time! Everything was great, the food, wine and service!

Fine dinning downtown
First time patrons. Great menu selections. Excellent wine list. Priced very reasonably. Food was excellent.
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
always great !
The table was ready even though I had to change the reservations a few times to include and exclude some people. We arrived before our group and decided to wait on the couches till they got there. Our table was centrally located and about mid way through the live entertainment arrived so we had some music..not too loud just right for background . Service was great and we did not have to wait too long for the food. I have been here for lunches as well. Everything is good...have not had a bad meal yet and I always try something different. I would recommend Scott's to anyone for a great gourmet meal at a reasonable price in a great area. Make reservations on weekend nights.

The food is very good, the service is good and the ambience is outstanding!

Best iceberg wedge salad ever. We ordered one to share, and I immediately regretted it because the salad was so delicious!

A Dining Experience
You don't go to Scott's to eat... you go for a wonderful dining "experience." Allow yourself the time to relax and take in this treat as a special occasion for enjoying your dining companions, experimenting with some great wines, and savoring a super meal.

Gainesville ga dining
First time visit to Scott's. I chose this for an anniversary celebration for friends.
Very suitable for a small group. Atmosphere was very pleasant. Live music
Was subtle and enjoyable. The food is excellent. I was disappointed by the
Service. I was expecting better based on reviews by previous patrons.
I will try again and assume just an off night, maybe short staffed.
We enjoyed the evening overall.

What a great surprise
As a couple of foodies hanging out at the lake, we weren't sure what to expect from a supposed fine dining experience in Gainesville, GA. I have to say we were more than pleasantly surprised. The food, service, cocktails, wine and ambience were all spectacular. We ate in our own private little cubby which was lovely and romantic.
I do wish the side rooms had ceilings and an option to not listen to the music in the main restaurant. There was a speaker on the corner of ours which was annoying. Apart from that though, it was truly a lovely surprise and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and wine was wonderful. Would highly recommend Scott's for any dinning situation.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is my favorite restaurant in the Gainesville area. The food and service are always good. It has little alcoves for small parties and private rooms for groups.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Did not disappoint.
Took customers in to Scott's this week on a recommendation. Food and service were both great. Scott personally checked on us and ensured all were pleased. Aged filet was very tender and had great flavor. Sea bass was great as well. Had calamari as app, would get it again.

Best Fine Dining in Gaineville
Best fine dining in Gainesville. On our first visit, service was a bit slow, but we were in no hurry. On our long-term list for many return visits. The tomato bisque and dinner rolls were particularly memorable.

I would really like to get a table not in the fish bowl (store window). The last 2 times we have been seated in this space and it does not reflect the true appeal of your restaurant. I have a good recommendation for this space. It's liike sitting in a hospital eatery

Great food and the attention to details was incredible. He came out of the kitchen a couple of times to greet us and wish us a happy anniversary. We will be back.

Great upscale restaurant for anyone wanting the very best. Excellent food, service and wine . Not necessary to drive
to Atlanta for great food.

Fabulous culinary experience!
I moved to N GA from Atl and have been starving for. Restaurants that I don't have to drive an hour+ to...
Success! Besides the great service, Acott made us feel incredibly welcome and the staff was extremely attentive and sweet.
We sampled two salads and split an array of appetizers so we could sample. The lamb lollipops were perfectly cooked/seasoned, the tequila grilled shrimp with guacamole/cocktail was delectable amd even the calamari was cut from a steak, not the usual rubbery rings:). We were full but couldn't deny dessert and glad we didn't. The 3 "cake trio" was a pleasant surprise and I'd highly recommend that.

Great taste right near home.
We met friends for dinner and had an enjoyable time. We had a variety of foods and everyone enjoyed them all. Soup trip was tasty & interesting. Bourbon salmon & risotto was delicious.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal for my husband's birthday this week at Scott's on the Square. We had not been to the new location and were extremely surprised and delighted with the newly remodeled space. My husband worked in this store space for years and it was especially sentimental to him to see how the space has been transformed and what a wonderful treat the dining experience was from beginning to end! WE will be returning to enjoy both the Lounge area and hopefully a lunch along with special dinners with friends! What a treasure for North Georgia.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great new digs!
Scott's new location is superbly decorated, the food is out of this world, and the ambience is impeccable. We can't wait to return on a night when there is live music. Our waitress, Hailey, was attentive and friendly, completing the experience perfectly.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Scott's is a Gem
Scott's never, never disappoints us, for the tasty food, personable service and calm atmosphere. Special touch provided when Scott himself comes to the dining area to greet customers at their table, even though he is very busy in the kitchen overseeing everything. A good place for fine dining at OK prices, and the value for money is excellent. Scott's is the best we have found in the Gainesville GA area. Try it and you will see.

Great service, as always.
Great service, as always. Scott always makes a point of talking to everyone and making you feel like a valued customer. Our server, Hailey, was attentive and took great care of us. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and had a great time!

Wonderful Food and Ambience
Very nice to have a cozy little room all to ourselves. Salmon was amazing. Fried bowtie pasta with spinach/artichoke dip also a big hit.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
We've been to the original location, it was a little awkward and forced. The new space is wonderful. It's huge. Tall ceilings hardwood floors, very nice ambiance. The place was sparsely populated for a Saturday night. Our server was great, very accommodating and flexible, the meal had a nice pace. We had the specials. Fish and short rib ragout with pasta. Both were very good, well prepared and tasty. We went to the bar for a after dinner drink. Another nice spot that's much better than the previous location, big screen TV's, separate seating area's, huge bar. We live in G'ville. So to have something like this so close is a treat for special occasions.
