Boozy BrunchTook a couple girl friends to Scion for a boozy brunch and had an INCREDIBLE time! We opted to do the bottomless mimosas with our meals and it was a great decision. The fruit bar was fresh and tasty, the food was amazing and they never let our glasses get empty. I loved the fact that they didn't rush us out and we ended up having a 4 hour brunch because we decided to stay and drink and chit chat. I will for sure be back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, interestingDelicious food, interesting bar selections, wonderful service!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting fareI love Scion. Their spin on the ordinary is great! Like their LBJ Mac and cheese. It's yummy Mac and cheese with lobster, bacon and jalapeños. Delish! I find the food always dependable, with ample portions.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place - but not quietFirst impressions were that this place was really small, but found out that they do have a back room not visible when you walk in. The hostess tried to seat us at a two top, wedged between two others that were already occupied. When my wife asked for a table with a little more privacy, since it was our annniversary, we were moved to a four top. This was better, but still next to a large group,including a restless kid or two. Once they left, things were better. The wine list was pretty limited, but the beer list looked extensive. Our dinners were both good, I had the grilled wild salmon and my wife had the peppercorn fillet medallions w/ mushroom cream sauce. Bottom line, I would go back for a casual dinner but not a special occasion.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, eclectic menu,Great food, eclectic menu, very reasonable prices.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWish there were more optionsWish there were more options on the menu. But overall great place!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time atThis was my first time at Scion brunch, but it will not be my last. After opting for the bottomless mimosas ($13), I was not disappointed as they brought carafes to the table instead of one glass at a time. The food was very good as well with the table splitting the Potato Nachos. I ordered the Monte Cristo, which was great also.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was fantastic for brunch!Food was fantastic for brunch! We had the crab cake benedict, lobster hash and lobster reuben and I recommend it all! However, the mimosas were weak and full of orange juice but the beermosas are good (better than a blue moon). I didn't like how you can't order one drink and then decide to make it bottomless after one?! Made no sense.. but overall, I'd go back for the food.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat in Every WayWonderful, efficient, and extremely friendly service. Fabulous food.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the atmosphere of thisI love the atmosphere of this place, open but cozy and the staff is great. I came here with a few friends for lunch after my wedding. When I made the reservation I noted it would be a wedding reception lunch,we were taken into a small but open room,& the staff was accommodating with taking photos of the group. I definitely would return to try more dishes. We shared the edamame hummus & Curried Potato Chickpea Croquettes both were vegetarian. I had the Brussel Sprout Curry and asked for it extra spicy and the kitchen got it close to my spice level of enjoyment. My husband had the Pumpkin Goat Cheese Ravioli,which he said had good flavors but was kinda heavy. Service was well timed & the wine/beer options=good. Reasonably priced gem!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second visit toThis was my second visit to Scion and I was not disappointed. Service was amazing - we didn't have to ask for anything! Food was amazing- I had the build your own omelet with a chocolate croissant (YUM!). Drinks were amazing - try the smoke and blood bloody mary (it has scotch!).3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMake sure to make a reservationMake sure to make a reservation a week in advance. Great brunch spot!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. My one complaintGreat food. My one complaint would be that we weren't told bottomless brunch cocktails would be cut off at 3:30pm when we initially ordered them. Only when our waitress brought out our first round of drinks at 3:00pm did they reveal that we only had 30 minutes to get our money's worth. Management was unsympathetic when we brought this to their attention.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI had friends in town andI had friends in town and needed a restaurant near their Dupont Hotel. I took a stab in the dark and came up with Scion! I had the stuffed shrimp and it was very good. The crab was a bit fishy tasting for my taste though.
What really put this restaurant over the top though, was the service. Attentive, pleasant, very good with the kids.
My guests applauded my choice, and I applaud Scion.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA very diverse menu, withA very diverse menu, with everything from turkey meatloaf to a unique scallop special. I had a special Italian wedding soup and Mediterranean lamb dish...both were outstanding. My dining companion also raved. The dessert, a pecan chocolate tart, was disappointing. Seemed prefab.
Service also was outstanding. Very knowledgeable and helpful, guiding us through the menu, since we were new there. Also we were delighted to discover a Monday night half-price special on bottles of wine!
Ambiance is very casual, and prices are reasonable for what you get. My one suggestion: Ditch the paper napkins. You're worthy of better!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
