    our group was very disappointed when we drove up to the restaurant. The exterior needs updating and the entrance is not inviting. The inside mirrors the outside and the view is downright ugly because of all the Construction Equipment stored across the street. It took 10 minutes to be acknowledged and the restaurant was not crowded. We had a table of 5 and all of us rated the food about a two maybe three for the soup. Scotts on the river off I-5 is wonderful and our entire family eats there often.

    This was our second visit to Scott's and there will be many more. Service, friendly but not overbearing and not rushed. Food was excellent with generous but not obscenely large portions. The only disappointment was we had a late Saturday night reservation and they were already out of their swordfish special. Our server did advise us of this the moment we were seated. Plenty of other great menu choices, just feel that specials on Saturday night should last throughout the seating - also understand that no one wants to eat day old fish. Plan to visit many times in the future.

    I've been to a couple of other Scott's and this one is consistent with the others. They have a nice bar plus private rooms for larger (maybe20 people). The noise level was surprisingly muted for such a crowded place. The service was very good though the entrees took a little long to come out though the server did keep us informed. Started with ahi lettuce wraps which were really fresh-tasting with a nice wasabi sauce. I had the crab bisque which was just ok. I should have asked for some hot sauce to give it a little more zing. Had the lobster tail which was good, though small. Would't order that again. One member of our party had the roasted chicken which was surpriisingly good. I gave it four stars across though I rounded up.

    We celebrated a friend's birthday on Saturday. Our food is always good and attentive service. My sister made a special dessert for our friend so we skipped dessert. The waiter said to come back and get a birthday dessert our next time. I had the skirt steak which is always tender, even the next day when reheated. That is a sign of quality meat. My friend was annoyed because her niece ate her leftovers. We live in Folsom and we've gone to Scott's for years. Always a good meal.

    Waited 15 minutes for someone to wait on us. Apologized and then forgot what to bring all mu order. Apologized and said I will buy you dessert. Brought us Crème Brulee and charged us $8.50 for it. Apologized and took it back to correct. I ordered Fish & Chips ($17) and it was the worst I have ever had. Little tiny pieces over coated and cooked to long. French fries under done and could not eat them. Not going back.

    What a find. I booked a reservation here to take my wife out for much needed alone time, and to show her how special she is to me. We have 4 kids, aged 1 years to 12 years old, so we rarely get that alone time to connect. I work full time and go to school part time, while my wife is a full time student. It's hard to find time just for us. And Scott's Seafood Grill & Bar was the perfect choice. Great service, amazing food, and the drinks were superb. Quality choices for any dining style. This is a place to go to, and more importantly, go back to. This will be a go to, romantic place for us. Worth every penny, and more.

    Started with oysters and shrimp cocktail. The men loved the oysters, shrimp cocktail great too.The macadamia nut crusted fish and fish special were both fabulous! The fish was just as good as the fish we had recently in Hawaii. Spinach salad was just ok..needed little more dressing or something.

    My wife loves oysters on the half shell, so Scott's has been our go to restaurant for special occasions, like our anniversary. This visit was exceptionally good. My wife got her oysters, and I had the excellent Boston Clam Chowder. She then had the special, sea bass, which she has continued to talk about as it was so good. I had what I believe was a new menu item, sauteed lobster, shrimp and scallops with pasta, and like my wife's meal, it was excellent.

  • Scott' is Downhill
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/7/2014
    The decor was dated and chairs were stacked in the main walkway. The Caesar salad was a disappointment with watery dressing if any, no grated Parmesan, nor crisp croutons. The Louie salad had very fishy crab (too old) arranged on one round leaf of iceberg lettuce. The main courses seem to please the guests, but the lobster tail, arrived later because the first tail was burned in the kitchen. We were compensated for that problem with a complimentary dessert. The desserts on the menu were disappointing too. The Creme Carmel was undercooked so the texture was poor The warm brownie with ice cream turned out to be the best of what we ordered. The rest could have be store bought in the freezer section and perhaps they were from some freezer.

    We continue to return to Scott's Seafood for lunch and dinner. The extensive menu, the quality of the food and the professional service are outstanding. Our most recent dinner exemplifies why this restaurant is recognized as one of the best in the Sacramento area. When I couldn't find exactly the seafood dinner entree I wanted on the menu (scallops alone, not paired with something else), our server Brent said, "Why don't you just build the entree you want?" So I ordered Jumbo Scallops, rice pilaf and grilled asparagus -- exactly what I wanted! Thank you!!!

    1. Arrived on time and there seemed to be some confusion with Scott hostess and delay in seating our party of 2 at one of the 5 open tables. Minus points. 2. Seated at a tight table for 2 located next to the busy stair way and a loud table of eight or ten. Where 4 parents (one loud guy) allowed their kids to keep bouncing from one end of the table to the other; lacked ambiance. Minus points. (At this point I was ready to leave or go sit in the some what empty bar and quiet bar) 3. Service was average to good; except - hurried and needs training on the "how to" pour of a bottle of wine, who gets the cork and the napkin wrap offered at other table service. Minus points. You excellent chef does not compensate for 1-3.

    We have been going to Scotts for years both in the Bay Area and Folsom. It never disappoints! My husband had the fried prawns and sweet potatoe fries and I had the halibut. Both were delicious. We usually go to Scotts for a special occasion (this was our anniversary), but may go back sooner just for the prawns.

Our wish was addressed and we had a table in a quiet corner and the restaurant was super busy that night.

    It was nice to go to Scott's on a fairly quiet Tuesday for an early dinner. As almost always, my special requests were fulfilled. There is a new menu with interesting additions. We tried one, a basil pesto and prawn dish served over capellini pasta. It was very good. I'm glad that the old favorites are still on the menu under "Classics".

    OMG! This supposed to be a great place? Other than the oysters (served raw) every prepared dish was dreadful. Dreadful! And this was on a Saturday night. I had to apologize to my girl. That's just the food. The waitress was okay, but watching her try to uncork a wine bottle was sad. She tried three times and expressed concern about how dry the corks were. Top it off with a lousy view. Scott's Folsom overlooks a construction site that, according to our waitress, had been there 10 years. Surely there is a better destination for you in Folsom.

    We had a party of 7 for our August family birthday lunch. Everyone loved their meal, including a special order (my husband gets bacon on everything). I had cioppino, it was SOOO good. My other favorite is the Pacific Rim salad. Our waiter remembered us from a February lunch. The service was excellent - attentive but in no way annoying. We have 4 August birthdays and they all got a free dessert of their choosing.

    I had heard so much about this restaurant and was really excited to try it out. We were seated promptly at our reservation time with no waiting. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable and for the most part, our experience was good. The bar was very noisy and someone kept dropping dishes into a receptacle creating a lot of noise. It's my number one complaint in a restaurant. I can handle the noise from other people but excessive noise from a staff that is not mindful is bothersome. My wife had the wild salmon and as this was our anniversary I had the filet and lobster. Honestly, the filet was terrific as were the mashed potatoes, green beans, and julienned carrots. My wife's veggies were overcooked and my lobster was not cooked through.

    We had a great spot in a booth that we requested. The food and wine the waiter recommended was fantastic and the dessert was so good we could have licked the plate clean. Will definitely be back. The view out the window isn't the best because of the storage of big trucks across the street. Seems planting some more flowering trees and maybe light up with twinkle lights would soften it. It still won't distract us coming back.

    Friendly hostess, excellent server, terrible meals. After many satisfied occasions at Scotts on the River, I'd hoped the same for this locale. Took a friend for her birthday, we both ordered halibut after being told the chef says all the fish was fresh. The entire meal had the consistency of a microwaved frozen dinner. Fish, potatoes, vegetables all very tough and dry, but thankfully served with a sauce to moisten the food with. Not what one would expect from a $27 main entrée, or from a restaurant that uses the word 'seafood' in its name.

    I brought two out-of-town guests to Scott's Seafood (Folsom) for lunch. They both commented on the extensive menu and the restaurant's ambiance. We each appreciated our individual entrees -- the Crab melt, a Shrimp Caesar salad, and Crab cakes. We didn't order any wines but there were some appealing options on the wine list. Scott's is a good choice for lunch in the Folsom area.

    It's been awhile since our last visit to Scott's in Folsom and one of the reasons that we don't do it regularly is because I feel that it's very expensive for the overall dining experience. My group found the food to be average with the fresh side vegetables either undercooked or tough. In my case, the Jerk Swordfish was good, but the portion was small and the coconut shrimp was overcooked. The best part of the experience was having $200 worth of gift cards to pay for it all.
