    Lively scene, friendly and efficient service, great setting in Brudge Street' Monaco. Small plates are numerous and very good. Sushi was very good. Drinks and beer are worth. Wine list is not strong for a wine lover, but good for the average drinker.

    Scene's setting always makes guests feel like it's a decadent treat to be there. The sushi is the best in the region and a better value by quantity then other good well known sushi restaurants in the region. Waitstaff are welcoming and knowledgeable however needs improved communication among themselves.

    This was our first time at the Scene. My wife and I went as part of seeing a movie on the adult-only Prive balcony section of the Monaco Theater. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The service was very prompt and attentive, allowing us to linger up to within 5 minutes of the movie start time as the door to our balcony seats was just 30 feet away. We filled our wine glasses with was left of our bottle of wine and took them to our seats, which were cozy twin seats in a sort-of love seat configuration. The only down-side was that the automatice wine dispenser did not work properly.

    Visited The Scene Restaurant before attending a movie. Price and variety appropriate -- appropriate meal size and not too expensive with good menu choices. Personally, I don't care for open air dining; however, having a booth made our visit okay. I wanted to dine in the Prive' area, but there were no servers during the week. Hopefully that will change in the near future. Lastly, pleasant interaction and follow-up with Restaurant staff (manager on duty and server).

    Wife and I enjoyed a casual dinner of sushi (Oceans Seven) and Kale Salad with a great glass of Californian Cabernet wine before heading of to the Theater. The server and manager on duty made for casual chat while the different food items were being prepared in the kitchen. Altogether we had a relaxed and enjoyable evening.

    Booked reservation online in morning for 6 that evening. Had a great table upstairs in the Privé area overlooking the theater entrance. Noise level was good, could have a normal conversation without fear of being overheard or shouting. The food was great, as was our server, though I did have to wait a while on a special item I asked for.

    Great service. The young lady that waited on is was spectaculer. We have had a couple of duds in the past. They dont know when to cut a conversation off and move to the next table. I can understand finishing a thought but to do it repeatedly is no acceptable. The food is good and the prices are very reasonable.

    This is a great place for happy hour get-togethers. Great drink specials and food specials. The ambiance is nice and service is wonderful. I planned a last minute happy hour with about 15 colleagues and it turned out perfect and everyone had a wonderful time. The staff was very attentive to my request and took very good care of my group. Will definitely make this my go-to spot for these events.

    This is the second time within a two month period that I have gone to The Scene that I have had a problem being waited on. I have had Servers walk right by me waiting on the tables around me and not even looking my way until I have to either stop them or get up and find someone to help me. I am not sure if it is a problem of under-staffing or what, but I see Management just standing around and not lifting a finger to help when this happens. I have always liked The Scene but have seen this happen over time. There are too many places in this city to go to to have this kind of service. I will not be back any time soon.

    Fun place, connected to Monaco Theaters. Sushi was amazing. We happened to be there on an all day happy hour (score for us) so the service was a little slow, but not terrible. House wines surprisingly good. Romantic-ish, odd as its next to Monaco pictures, but very quaint and welcoming. Would definitely go back.

    We arrived at 6:30, sat upstairs overlooking the theater area. We both felt hot. I don't know if the air could not be adjusted because of the doors opening and closing? Or what. It was at the end of our meal that we felt hot, so we didn't say anything to the staff. The staff was excellent!!!!!!

    Went to The Scene for dinner and a movie. We went after our movie, around 9:45, and our table was waiting for us. Though it wasn't as crowded as it generally is. Sushi and drinks were pretty good. Though I ordered the crab cake appetizer and it was horrible! It was breaded and deep fried rather than pan seared. That was probably the worst crab cake I've ever had! But everything else made up for it! We will be going again... just not for the crab cakes!

    The husband and I didn't really have time for an early dinner before our movie and I was starving. So I just booked a reservation on my phone at The Scene about 45 mins before our movie. We got seated and served within 15 mins. We did just order appetizers because we weren't sure how long anything would take. But it was fantastic food.

    Scene is a local favorite, great for grabbing a couple of drinks or having a good meal. The menu presents many good upscale "bar food" choices if you're looking for a snack or an appetizer (the beef kefta is recommended). The sushi is excellent; try the sexy ban roll. The draft list isn't extensive, but they stock some good local breweries. They're also mindful to prioritize you if you have a movie to get to - just be sure to tell your server your movie time. Overall, Scene has become a pretty regular dining choice for us.

    This was our first time eating here. The atmosphere was fun and pleasant! My husband ordered the steak nachos, which were ok, he said he would not order them again. I ordered the oyster rockafeller, which was good but would have been GREAT if it was hot and not just barely warm. I could have used about another 4-5 slices of bread also. Our drinks were good and our waiter was very friendly and great on checking on us! I had heard good things about dining there, that is why we picked eating there over all the other the places at bridge street. However, I felt for the price we could have had eaten at one of the other places and had an appetizer and hot food. We will give it one more try next time we go to a movie....

    I made a reservation online for 2 couples on Friday night. I requested a booth. I got a confirmation phone call earlier in the day. They confirmed that I wanted a booth. The reason for requesting a booth is every time they want to sit 4 adults at a tiny table upstairs. It is hard to put 4 plates and 4 drinks plus an appetizer on one of those tables. You are constantly having to shift everything around & it is a uncomfortable experience. When we arrived that is AGAIN where they seated us! They went on to say how they misspoke when confirming my reservation & I could wait another 30 minutes if I wanted too. Waiter was very slow. Appetizer was brought out at the same time as the food. Needless to say it was a very unpleasant experience!

    5 stars on ambience as The Scene can't be beat for a great nighttime, conversation setting restaurant. Food is very good but a bit pricey while the service was very good as well. I would not recommend this restaurant for young kids even though we had 2 kids under the age of 5 talking & peeping at us throughout dinner from the neighboring booth. Given the general (sushi & alcohol) bar feel in this restaurant, I just think under the age of 12 is inappropriate.
