Scott's Restaurant & Bar (fka Scott's Seafood)
Always a Class act...I never get tired of the food or service at Scott's, the food is fresh and top quality and always prepared perfectly. The service is personal without being over board, and the servers are very friendly, you can tell they like and enjoy their job. Phillip our server, was well versed in the specials and made recommendations which I always appreciate. At his suggestion I had the fresh Alaskan Halibut cooked the way I like it, medium rare, and it was incredible.
Scott's will never let you down, and even though Scott's is noted for their seafood, they also have USDA Prime Beef Selections on the menu, and since my Daughter and her husband are non fish eaters, this is the perfect spot for all of us to enjoy the best food and service together.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time we had dined atFirst time we had dined at Scott's. it was very nice. Ignacio, our waiter, was excellent.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchThe ambience and service were excellent, the prices were reasonable, the taste and quality of the food was average.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for Pre-theater DiningMy friend and I had tickets at the Segerstrom Center to see Flashdance so we decided to have dinner at Scott's beforehand. We started with the shrimp cakes - excellent, followed by the beet salad, which was one of the best I've ever had,. For entrees we both had the Ahi tuna dinner. Again, it was melt in your mouth fabulous. We shared some Savignon Blanc wine, and unfortunately dessert was out since we were full and needed to get to the show.
Oh, the other great thing is that the valet parking is only $3.00 and we were able to leave the car there, walk 5 minutes to the theater, and not have to deal with the hassle of a parking garage. Perfect!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day lunchWonderful Mother's Day lunch with great service. Five of us loved everything we ordered. Service was very attentive. Lovely addition to have a photographer so we could take home photos.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service, Perfect Pre-TheaterWe went back to Scott's after a so-so pre-theater experience with a group of four. So very glad we did. The service was super, our server watched the clock so we didn't have to stress about making our curtain. Valet parking held our car until after the performance and it was so convenient. I recommend the organic chicken and the hanger steak in particular. But we enjoyed all the entrees and sides. We'll be back soon!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMCould not have been better,Could not have been better, Children loved their food as well.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall a very good experience.

Highly recommend Scott's!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been driving by thisWe have been driving by this restaurant for years and have always said we would try it out sometime. Since we were going to a show down the street, I thought this would be a perfect place to enjoy dinner afterwards. Add in the fact that it was our wedding anniversary and we figured this would make a perfect celebration and an excellent way to wind the evening down.
We started off with the lobster bisque and clam chowder. As my wife put it, this was one of the best lobster bisque's she has ever had. My clam chowder was a little watery but still very edible.
We then moved on to the main course. My wife had the salmon and I had the scallops. Both excellent choices. Both selections were fresh and very tasty.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMScott's is a wonderful placeScott's is a wonderful place to eat before going to the Orange County Performing Arts Center or Music Hall.

Our waiter was very knowledgeable about both the wine and food menus. The calamari appetizer had a fantastic lemon garlic butter sauce and was one of our favorite dishes of the night. Our mahi mahi & seared ahi dishes were cooked perfectly, and were also very flavorful. We were also surprised at the end of our meal when our waiter comped us a cheesecake beignet dessert. It was like a light donut crust with cheesecake oozing out of it when we cut into it. It was a delicious way to end the evening. We will definitely be back again!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were outstanding. However, the wine list was extremely over priced.

After a matinee performance at Segerstrom, six of us walked over, leaving the cars next door at Segerstrom which saved us a long wait at the exit not to mention tipping the valet. Our server was knowlegdable, patient (we had alot of questions), and available. The cocktails came quickly, the wine list was good, and all of us were more than pleased with our appetizers and entrees. Of particular note was the calamari, flash fried in a pan, not breaded or deep-fried; pan-seared salmon was perfectly cooked; and everything in my ciappino was perfectly cooked, nothing was over-cooked.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location for going toGreat location for going to the concert hall, a fun time.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went on a Friday nightWe went on a Friday night prior to seeing Wicked.
