Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant was nice and my boyfriend loved the oysters. While the service was great and the view beautiful and romantic, the food was somewhat bland and not well worth the price we paid. Maybe it was just the two dishes we had, but for the price, I didn't walk away saying "wow, that was good". The wine was good, but my boyfriend ordered an "old fashioned", and while he liked it, he said it wasn't what he was expecting."

  • "The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was elegant. Best of all, the service was above and beyond the highest quality. Abigail was bright, charming and extremely competent We felt well taken care of even though she had many other tables to cover. I could not recommend Scott's any more highly."

  • "The food was not quite worth the price. The best items we had were calamari and scallops. The crab bisque was ok, but has a little kick to it, so be warned if you have low tolerance for spicy. It's a tomato-based cream, so not as light as, say, a lobster bisque - more of a spiced crab-tomato bisque. I asked for "Medium to Medium-Rare" filet mignon, and it came out closer to Rare, but was seasoned well. Sadly, the sauce with it tasted more like a barbecue-aioli sauce found on a Red Robin burger and less like a steak sauce. The garlic mashed potatoes were good, but the macadamia encrusted halibut was blander than Panko, to say the least. The restaurant was also a bit loud, but the service was more than excellent. We'll stick to McCormick's..."

  • "The dinning room atmosphere (tables and chairs) was was like being at a Denny's or a Mimi's restraunt. I expected more when paying the prices for dinner. The Happy hour was good but the service was lacking at the tables."

  • "I always love coming here. Definitely sit outside if you can- gorgeous and quit river views. The hostess was lovely, our busser was equally engaging and Our server was very accommodating and sweet. And of course, the food never disappoints."

  • "Celebrated my inlaws 60th wedding anniversary. As I had made my reservations online, I specifically requested a quiet area of the restaurant as the elderly couple have hearing issues. We were initially seated right next to the very busy and noisy bar. I questioned the hostess and she IMMEDIATELY prepared another table in the back of the restaurant which was perfect! She was so polite, pleasant and took charge of the situation and fixed the error in seating. Our waitress was also amazing. Extremely patient with our group and was very attentive."

  • "We went to Scott's for our anniversary dinner and had an amazing time. I asked for a table with a view when making our reservation, and was pleasantly surprised with a great table overlooking the river. Our food was delicious and we were even gifted a complimentary bottle of champagne at the end of our evening. I would recommend Scott's to anyone who loves great food and service. Thank you!"

  • " I saw that the restaurant bar area was very full and a bit noisy . We were seated immediately and decided to take an outdoor table. The spinach was fresh, hot, and cooked to my liking! The others in my party enjoyed their entrees too. I felt that the wait time for the dessert to actually come was a little too long . It was my BD dinner celebration thus the dessert was complimentary.. The dessert when it came was brought with three spoons. Dessert was yummy and the coffee was great but could have been hotter. I didn't say anything since I drank it right away. The waiter was attentive and refilled my coffee cup three times. Overall the dining experience was excellent and I will definitely return."

  • "This scenic restaurant on the river has very fresh petrale sole and salmon, prepared just the way the customer requests. Our waitress provided excellent service, with a warm and friendly attitude; and, she offered very good advice about the items on the menu, as well as giving great suggestions, for wines to complement our entrees. I would rate the service as FIVE STARS, Par Excellence. We both enjoyed a wonderful dining experience. We give this restaurant our highest recommendation; and, we plan to return here, for many enjoyable meals in the future. . . -Alyn Goldsmith"

  • "The staff was super attentive and accommodating. My wife has several food allergies and the kitchen crew made her dish just as she liked. The morning had several large parties and the tables were pushed very close together making it difficult to maneuver through the outdoor patio but the hostess seated us at a table with plenty of room. Overall very good food, great service and a very unrushed and enjoyable Sunday brunch"

  • "A post-wedding reception dinner for out-of-town guests was just a delight. Our server was so gracious, funny and personable...she made our evening very enjoyable, and the fresh oysters on the half shell--oh my, delicious! Thank you Scott's for making our special evening even more special."

  • "We went to Scott's for our anniversary. We had a reservation stating it was a special event for us. When we arrived they sat us at the worst table even though their were several open. When we asked to be moved we were told it was only this table or the one directly across from it which was equally bad. After ordering appetizers and 1st course out entrees were brought within seconds of each other. They definitely tried to rush us through dinner. The waitress Samantha came by three times within 5 minutes of bringing us the check to see if we had paid. We hadn't even finished our drinks. Not the best anniversary dinner. I guess I didn't realize it was really a "fast food" restaurant!"

  • "When my wife and I arrived at the restaurant we were seated rite away and approached by the waitress withen 3 min. We ordered water and drinks and where told of the specials of the day. I ordered the Halibut and my wife ordered the fellet and prawns. Everything was great. It was my birthday so they ofered me a free Deseret so we had some gillato. When the bill came our waitress came back with a botle of champagne as a gift for my birthday. VERRY COOL!! Love this place"

  • "My wife and I decided to make our second trip to Scott's On the River after a great initial experience there. We decided to eat our dinner outside because it was very pleasant and we love the view. While the food was very good (my wife had the cioppino and I had ahi tuna) and the service was outstanding, we had to fight the yellow jackets coming and going. They weren't at our table the whole time, but just enough to be annoying. So just be aware that it could be an issue. It won't stop us from trying again, though."

  • "However comma, the service Sunday morning was less than stellar. Forgot the toast, then said it burned and was re-doing....then had to flag a waiter down to get a second cup of coffee.....food was mediocre but thank goodness for the ambience of dining outdoors with a river view. Considering valet (because self parking was a block away with no shuttle running .... And my client had a fractured foot) I think the valet is way too expensive at $8 a car. Even at Original Joes in the heart of San Francisco it is only $6. Would be quite acceptable if food and service up to par."

  • "Our first time at Scott's on the River. We'd previously dined at their Folsom restaurant and decided to try their other location. The food and service made it worth the trip. The dining room is long and narrow which seems to elevate the noise level. But as I said, we came for the food and not the ambiance. Our party of six ordered a variety of items off the menu and each item was well plated, hot, and a delight to eat. Our server did an outstanding job of getting the "seniors" in our party to the right selection(s) and was a jewel of a soul in making each of us feel welcome. If you're into quiet dining - you should pass. However, if you're into great food that is beautifully presented and great service, this is an excellent venue."

  • "I had made a reservation for my wife's birthday. My lobster some parts were under cooked I didn't want to complain because it was my wife's birthday. Side items rice and veggies were cold and unappetizing I just told her I was full so I didn't complain about the food. The waiter was not friendly even to the table next to us that he was serving. Example he just handed the birthday cake to person said "enjoy" not very personable just went through the motions. My wife was so disgusted with the food and the service she didn't want any type of desert for her birthday. We will not be going back."
