This was not our first time here, we brought friends along to share my birthday. We had a great time, the food and the service keep us coming back.

One of our favorite restaurants
One of our favorite restaurants in Orange County. Food and service is always outstanding. My wife loves their salmon and I'm a huge fan of their cioppino. The serve it with a lobster tail in the center of the bowl. It's spicy and outstanding.

Great bar great food $$$$$
Pricey, but excellent. At the bar try a golden eye cocktail or the blood orange martini, both are wonderful. The bartenders, Jason and Raul , were friendly and informative ( and easy on the eyes).The room is inviting and the service very good. Try the sea bass, perfect, and have the benets for desert.

Scott's never disappoints
We eat at Scott's often when we go to concerts and events in Orange County. The food is excellent and the service is always great. Ask for Lori's table. She is the best!

Great lunches here
Food was wonderful with great flavors and cooked to perfection

We hadn't been to Scott's for a long time - we had moved out of town. I made reservations to celebrate a special birthday for my husband and then see a show at the Performing Arts Theater. The food was fantastic! The dessert excellent. It was perfect!

This place is a delight to the senses! Beautiful decorations, excellent food, wonderful service. When in Costa Mesa there is no better place to have an outstanding dinner with friends and family. Thank you Scott's!!

Nice for business meetings
The Chilean Sea Bass, Filet, and all sides that we ordered were delicious. The bread is served at room temperature and my dinner was not hot, both of which compromised the flavor. The dessert, a very unique dish of cheesecake filled beignets, was amazing. Our service, in all aspects, was outstanding.
The ambiance is perfect for business and holiday parties, and nice for personal dining as well.

One of my regular favorites
If I want a bone in rib-eye. Scott's is where I go. Provencal Calamari a must!

Service & Food
The service and the food at Scotts is one of the best in Orange County. During our annual 3 week vacation to the area, we return to the same restaurants as prior years (the good ones of course) and Scotts is on our list.

Great Service and Very Good Food
Took three Japanese visitors to Scotts. The service was really excellent, better than I had remembered. Food was very good. The calamari appetizer was the hit of the evening food wise. Wine selection was very good and wine pricing reasonable.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Scott's Seafood Grill - the
Scott's Seafood Grill - the Chilean Seabass never disappoints. Nice wine list, server was engaging and fun. We were at the Westin next door and wanted to simply walk to dinner - this is a great option for travellers or anyone looking for great seafood. Atmosphere was also lovely

My wife and I have visited Scotts for our anniversary for several years now. We absolutely love the food, and service is top notch
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
The perfect celebration
Great news was made better with good food and good service.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'm content ordering several "beginnings" and a bottle of wine.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The brunch menu is served along side their lunch menu and offers guests a nice variety of food. Served with bottomless champagne and a flight option with juices to make a Kir Royale, Bellini or Elderflower. We always also enjoy the calamari with its unique sauce; highly recommend! Scott's has a great atmosphere whether you are dining in the main room, garden room, bar or patio. Always an enjoyable experience.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very rich lobster bisque. Not so impressive cucumber salad. Halibut main course served with a tangy sause was very good. No time for dessert.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Remember what is Close and Good.
Sometimes you are wondering where to go for a nice meal.
You are thinking of places here and there, that city.
Then you remember: Oh my, Scott's is just three block away!!!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Simply a great restaurant.
Simply a great restaurant. Always excellent food and great friendly and attentive service. Thanks to out waitress, Lori, who we have been lucky to have our last 2 visits.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
When a restaurant performs superbly by plating consistently great food, it's a keeper. Chef Mike and Staff create a culture of sharing, culture of enjoyment, and a culture of love that is contagious. Keep up the good work.
8/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
Another good experience
Food and service good as ever. The bar is always busy with what looks like the the after work crowd. The restaurant as ever had a wide range of ages and types of people. We will be eating her again soon.

Special Occasion Restaraunt!!
Wonderful relaxed setting for a quiet special lunch/brunch. Service was outstanding--Excellent food selections!!! Our fresh fish was delicious.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been here a few times. Scott's never fails to deliver a good meal. Go when Chef Mike is working, he does amazing things!!! The staff is always kind and friendly. This particular time they were a bit over attentive and always while I just took a bite of something, LoL. But overall a consistently good spot.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time for lunch & will go back
Came here for Costa Mesa restaurant of the week during lunchtime. Food was excellent and fresh. When they served it, the food looked so pretty that I didn't want to eat it. Good thing I did as it was a great meal. Dessert was superb also.
8/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
Si glad we chose Scott's for our Restaurant Week lunch! The seared aji, shrimp pizza, cheesecake stuffed beignets and nectarine upside down cake were all off the charts. The service was impeccable (thanks Andrew and Gina). Can't wait to go back.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food but Noisy Room
We enjoy the proximity to South Coast Repertoire and like to eat with friends at Scott's before a show. Conversation is difficult, but valet parking, excellent service and delicious food make it a pleasant way to start the evening.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, excellent service,
Great food, excellent service, and awsome experience. A gem of a place.
9/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
Scott's provides a consistantly excellent dining experience. The decor is tastefully elegant, while maintaining a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. The service is courteous and professional. The menu is varied with beautiful, fresh seafood dishes, as well as delicious steaks. It's difficult to decide which starters to request, as they all look so enticing! All dishes are perfectly prepared and presented. An ideal restaurant to begin and/or end your evening at the Performing Arts Center! The only detractor for us is that the cocktail area can become quite energetic later in the evening, bringing excessive noise levels into the dining area.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely décor, nice arrangement
Lovely décor, nice arrangement of tables and booths without being too crowded. The service is outstanding and menu very good. It is a bit pricey. We enjoyed ourselves though.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding Server and Food
The food - short rib ravioli appetizer (WOW) and Asian pear salad followed by the Seared scallops and fresh Halibut was amazing. The desert that was shared "upside down nectarine cake with white gelato" was unbelievable. Highly recommended. All topped off by our amazing server, Katie, who's recommendations were spot on. Great evening.

Dinner Before Concert
My husband, daugher and I enjoyed our dinner very much. We were going to a concert after our meal and once we informed the staff we were taken care of promptly and our server was very good. The food was delicious and we all enjoyed our meals and would return to Scott's in the future
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated our 15 years together on Monday at Scotts. The last time we had been was our first date. The resturant has since altered its name but the interior is different than before. The food is good. Calamri was great. The service was outstanding and very helpful.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Scott's Restaurant was a very convenient restaurant near the Segerstrom Theater. I was hoping to find a delicious restaurant close to the theater and Scott's was the perfect choice. The staff is used to serving guests going to the theater so they are very aware of the time. Great seafood and a very nice wine list!
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Business Lunch
I use Scotts as a business venue whenever I have something important to achieve. The setting and service are perfect. The restaurant is quiet, there is room between tables, and we can get in and get out in a reasonable amount of time.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never disappoints - great food +great service + great location = fantastic evening!
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good food..great service
My friend and I enjoyed our dinner. The food was very good (Salmon for me and 'Block Steak' for her). The service was very good..kept the water glasses filled and asked if we wanted more bread and better (and delicious bread!).
We had a time frame to meet to get to a performance and our waiter made sure we we finished, through dessert, and the bill paid by the time we requested. I do think the wine is very 'pricey'. I would go back there again the next time we have a show to go to.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Scott's comes through, as always
We've eaten at Scott's for years, and have never been disappointed. The food is always first rate, the service is great, and the sophisticated environment makes for an enjoyable experience.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Scott's is a pre-show favorite. The food is always perfectly prepared and of high quality. The service and dining room are refined. They typically have a lovely selection of fresh oysters available. The sea bass is a favorite entrée, but all selections are delightful. If going pre-show, allow at the very least an hour and a half to truly enjoy your meal prior to the short stroll to the performing arts center. A perfect evening opener!
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
ALways enjoy the consistency of the food & the service! We go often before attending events at the Symphony Hall.

fish with a modern twist
Scotts resturaunt serves goood fish with a modern twist using creative and bright ideas to make a good fish grand.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Expensive, but worth it.
We were quite happy with essentially all aspects of the restaurant, especially the possibility of leaving the car during the
theater performance. Portions could have been a bit larger, especially considering the premium price. Dessert offerings could
have been a bit more sophisticated, but these are small complaints.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our food was superb! Our server had fabulous recommendations for food and wine pairing!

Romantic 50th Bday
I decided to take my husband there as a 50th birthday dinner for somewhere new that we'd never been. First impression of restaurant/decor was great, very elegant and attentive staff. I wasn't sure what to expect with the crowd and it was definitely an "older" crowd, mostly over 60's I would say, but this didn't really matter to us. We had a wonderful booth, a great waiter, oysters were fresh, and the fish was fantastic. We had the chilean seabass and the seared ahi, both were cooked perfectly and just the right amount of sauce drizzled. I had mentioned it was my husbands 50th when I mad the reservation and they surprised him with an amazing desert (no singing of course).
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good food and service
A really great place for business lunch or pre-theater dinner.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Glad we weren't in a hurry
Scott's is reliably good food, and enjoyable setting. But the service during our last visit was almost catatonic. I can't think of any reason but the kitchen. Our party of seven was one of only 3 groups and no more than 8 other diners in the place. Our waiter was competent, but not attentive, and being in the back-most corner of the restaurant didn't help. It was a three hour meal which involved close to 45-60 minutes of waiting. This has NEVER been my experience at Scott's, but I'll be cautious going forward.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
The turkey was moist and seasoned perfectly.
All the sides were amazing. I usually cook a huge meal but decided to take this year off. I was a little worried that no restaurant would live up (flavor wise) to my home cooked feast, but Scott's did it!!!
