    Comfortable booths, romantic lighting, excellent server, healthy, tasty salads and reasonably priced wine list! Only complaint is the pianist in the bar is too loud for an intimate conversation in the restaurant. The piano also sounded out of tune.

    I am a big fan of Scott's but on this occasion I was totally disappointed. We were a group of 4 for lunch and waited 25 minutes to get a server to our table and this was after getting up and flagging down a server. Once wine was served, server disappeared and once again we had to get another server's attention to help us. Terrible service for the entire lunch.

    Went again for an anniversary. The Sept menu had several great offerings from the Pacific Coast menu. My wife agreed to the fried calamari appetizer, my favorite, since Scott's is the only calamari she will eat -- well breaded, crunchy coating and buttery. The shared crab salad was very meaty and easily enough for two. We both ordered the halibut with different wines to try the pairings and found both good, the chardonnay better than the pinot. We will be back, maybe for brunch again next time.

    If you can get there a little early and grab a seat out on the patio, it is a fantastic and quiet place for Sunday Brunch. The service is top-notched and the champagne flows well. Great selection of foods, too.

    My husband and I decided to go to Scott's to celebrate our anniversary because of the great service and we've always enjoyed the food. We were greeted at the hostess station by the manager, Sebastian with, "Good evening, Mr. & Mrs._____. Happy Anniversary." He then showed us to our table and asked if we drink champagne (of course!). Moments later, he appeared with two flutes of champagne, each had a fresh strawberry in it. Our server, Olivia appeared and greeted us with "I understand it's your anniversary. Congratulations!" From start to finish the meal was delightful. We finished at the bar where Carolyn served our Irish coffees (best I've ever had) and was attentive without being intrusive. One of our best anniversary dinners!

    I've been looking for a great seafood restaurant in the East Bay Area and finally found one! The ambiance was outstanding and the food was excellent. Service was good. My only concern was that the price was a bit steep. Our check (for two adults and a teenager) as in the $200 range. I'd recommend Scotts to anyone looking for great seafood.

    We like Scott's Walnut Creek because of its ambiance and also because it is within walking distance to the Lesher Center. We are season subscribers and like to use Scott's as our go to place. It is comfortable, lively and has really good seafood. The service is also excellent.

    We requested a quiet table facing the garden through Open Table so that our group could chat easily. We were meeting cousins from England for the first time. The staff had clearly read the note and welcomed our "visitors to the US" -, asked who were the cousins from England, etc. Provided a very nice homey atmosphere - very welcoming. Food was delicious - and Rodney Strong featured wines were delightful. Too long a wait for wine and appetizers to be served. Had to repeatedly ask for coffee. At these prices wine and appetizers should be out quickly allowing for the leisurely conversation we wanted. Even water and bread was slow. Food was delicious but you want to have your nibbles and chat while your entrees are being prepared.

    The service was very slow every step of the way. Difficult to get the attention of the server. Random people would infrequently come and remove a plate or two without properly clearing the table. Overall an amateur operation. The restaurant appears unchanged from whenever it was built a few decades ago. Finally the clientele is very old. Nothing wrong with that. My family brought the average age of the customers down by many years.

    Normally I would think $27 is a little pricey for a salad. However, Scott's seafood salad was well worth the price. They sure didn't skimp on the seafood. There was an abundance of crab and shrimp and a fair amount of scallops. All the seafood was delectable. The avocado was also generous; tomatoes were fresh and sweet. My husband has steak and lobster tail. Again, the lobster tail was very generous in size and the steak was prepared just the way my husband ordered it. Service was a tad slow but the restaurant was packed so the sluggish service was understandable. All in all, it was a very enjoyable evening and we'll definitely be going back there again.

    My friend and i ordered the seafood salad. There was a wonderful variety of seafood (bay shrimp, crab, and scallops) as well as mixed greens, avocado, tomatoes, and a hard boiled egg. I wish there was a smaller size for lunch as it is a huge salad and even with the $10 coupon still rather expensive.

    I took my wife to Scott's for a special lunch after a meeting in WC in the morning, we walked around the quaint downtown, it's grown up a lot since we were that last. Michelle was our server and very attentive, food was good, wine selection was good, and we were seated outside per my request and since it was very early and most of the luncheon groups had not arrived as yet, it was very quiet.

    We enjoyed it but were looking for a variety of small plates. We thought the restaurant was more like a bistro than a supper club. When we ordered the waiter assumed we were ordering full entrees (even though we said we were ordering multiple appetizers) so we had more food than we needed. Doggie bags worked well. Salad was great and entrees were good.

    I have been to scotts many times and this was my first bad experience. Food was cold and server was not very good. We sat for over 15 min with empty drinks and when I confronted her about the poor service she gave me attitude. Our food then came out to us cold. I feel she was over committed and could of used some help.

Our waiter was great, just enough special attention, but also knew when to give us time to just visit and not rush us. I also appreciate the valet parking so you don't have to worry about where to park in downtown walnut creek.

    Prices reflect fine dining...service and food does not. Made reservation on Open Table for lunch today to celebrate my birthday with a co-worker. Even put a special "Birthday" note in the Open Table reservation. Service from Hostess to our Waiter was dismal. Food was mediocre. No mention of Happy Birthday...a simple "Happy Birthday" greeting would have sufficed...

    Like always, the food was good, consistent. Unfortunately the service was terrible. Went for Sunday brunch, self service; but had to ask the waiter 3 different times to refill our coffee; also had to flag someone down several times to refill our water glasses. No one bothered to pick up our used plates; we just put them on an empty table by us. Worse part was watching the bus boy and waiter chit chat while we clear our own plates. Very disappointing. Additionally, as it happened, it was a very hot day; we were seated near the patio, which was fine, but the doors were left opened so all the hot air was coming in. Worse experience eating at this location.

    You may have heard of Scott's in San Francisco, or even Scott's in Oakland. However, neither of these compares with Scott's in Walnut Creek. The food is always exquisite and delicious, and the service in fabulous. I would recommend it if you want a special place to go for Sunday Brunch. Their Jazz brunch is amazing, with all kinds of delicacies, and not to be missed. The music is also fantastic and upbeat. Definitely a place to take your loved one, or family for a special night out....regardless of the occasion.

    We met at Scott's for a mid-week dinner to break the workaholic routine. Everything about the experience was wonderful. Our server, Roberto, was delightful. He was funny, attentive, caring and so very helpful. Our meals were terrific! Each of us had a selection from the Salmon Festival menu. Both were perfectly prepared and delicious. The atmosphere on the back patio was quiet, intimate and just what we needed to reconnect from our busy lives. Overall, Scott's never disappoints!
