Four of us from work decidedFour of us from work decided to treat ourselves to a special lunch. Two of us has never been to Scotts, and two of us had been (but about 20 years ago in SF). Everyone was pleased with the food and service. We'll be back!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMthe five of us each had athe five of us each had a different dish and everyone raved. Excellent service, quiet table, near Stanford campus. Waiter reminded us of time as we had told him we had tickets for a concert.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh ingredients, nice selectionFresh ingredients, nice selection of seafood and steaks on the menu. Friendly waitstaff. Comfy seats, pleasant lighting, quiet enough for conversation. Some of the dishes we ordered could have had a bit more flavor, but otherwise, the food was fresh and nicely presented.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLess satisfied than usualWe've eaten at Scott's for many years, but we usually eat outside and/or arrive early. This time we ate inside at 7:30 on a Thursday night. There was a band and the noise level was pretty high with patrons trying to talk over it. We were unlucky enough to be seated near a guy who talked a lot and really loudly. I came home from dinner with a sore throat from trying to talk to the others in my party. I'd prefer no band and, of course, no other really loud customers.
I did like the food and service, as usual.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was excellent,Everything was excellent, except service was slow, even though there were not many people in the restaurant.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI hosted a group of foreignI hosted a group of foreign visitors from Asia and the menu was quite manageable for them and they thought the food was quite good. They compared it to dining in France.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMa favorite placeScott's is one of our favorite restaurants in Palo Alto. The food is fresh, lovely, and delicious. The wait staff is about the best we've seen - courteous, helpful, and friendly. We never have to wait long to get fed, nor do we feel rushed.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. And serviceRequested and got a nice quiet table. Waiter extremely helpful and good on tasting wine sold by glass and with menu selections. Also returned undercooked salmon to kitchen and it returned looking attractive, probably on a new plate - and delicious.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOur cocktails, salads, andOur cocktails, salads, and main courses were delicious. The waiters and busmen were perfectly courteous to us and coordinated with each other.
