The food was mediocre, the service was terrible. Because of this, the price was too high. Will not return, cannot recommend.

This restaurant is a bistro. A short menu with some changing specials served by a knowledgeable staff. It is a small place with some big ideas in food.
My wife and I both tried the risotto with scallops. One of the best sea food risottos we have ever had- and we are older people who have eaten widely!
Salad with beets and goat cheese was good too.
Wine list is ok but not very exciting. We do not think of Tucson as a wine town. You can buy many wines served at better restaurants here at Wine Direct- not a recommendation.
Do try this place soon because it depends a lot on the Fox Theater that is closed for the covid-19 virus...

We had great meals but a minor detail with wine glasses....heavy chunky glasses detract from the the pleasure of wine with or without a meal. I did ask for a different wine glass & our server was great at responding. In a quality restaurant why even have those chunky cheap glasses?

Understated but with a lot of charm. You have to look closely for the street entrance because it’s even more understated. In the 1920’s, this is what a speakeasy probably looked like... This place is a welcome change of pace and I’ll definitely be back.

Extremely hot, as soon as you walk into the establishment. When seated, there was a dead bug stuck to one of the menus and after telling the waitress, she did nothing to make it right. Then, the menu was overpriced and constantly being rotated, I ordered my food and was then told that the meat was lamb. My order needed to be canceled and changed. Leaving the restaurant was the best feeling because then I could finally breathe with the fresh air. Don’t ever plan on returning.

We've been there several times, and it's one of our local favorites. We drop a star from the food rating, reluctantly, only because the rib-eye special was a little overdone and consequently somewhat tough. It was, however, a considerably larger steak than expected. The potato sides and the kale Caesar salad were both outstanding, as was the service.

Our server was fantastic!! My girlfriend and I enjoyed a few items from the happy hour menu- we both could have eaten the Brussels sprouts dish and the buffalo fried cauliflower every day!!! The chefs board was good, but the meat was a bit lackluster. I ordered the Moscow Mule, and it was just the right amount of vodka and ginger beer. Great overall experience!!!

It's not a large place but it is cozy. Reminds me of a neighborhood bar say that would be in Chicago or NY etc. My 2 friends liked sitting at the high table vs a regular size table. We enjoyed Happy Hour due to the prices. If you have limited finances Happy Hour is a good time to go. The Happy Hour & regular menus are limited in variety. They really need to add finger foods or small plates to Happy Hour.

We ate at 47 Scott before going to the theater. We shared Brussel Sprouts and Iceberg Wedge, then Grilled Cheese and Mussels. All was excellent, except the mussels. They were quite small and not very flavorful.

3 of the 4 things we ordered were very good, one not as much.

Service was excellent.

Like the ambiance, feel like we are in a city restaurant.

Overall, a big thumbs jump.

The fish specials are always terrific, Saturday nights was Halibut over polenta, with two large shrimp and two large scallops, delicious!!! Christian our waiter was great as well. This place is going to give Kingfisher some competition!!!

The service was friendly but slow. Food pretty good they charged me full price for a virgin mojito “because it’s the same amount of work for the bartender” which to me is a little outrageous. Never heard of paying $11 for lime and mint soda water.

Great Staff..great cocktails...amazing decedent dinner. The only suggestion I would make is that rather than diced beets for the Beet salad; a sliced and layered beet would be nicer to eat and give a fuller flavor!

Will never return. Hostess (temp. mgr?? -- not sure) unfocused. Servers disorganized. Table server, absolutely the worst that we have encountered in a long time. Every task was done incorrectly. (Consider a different profession perhaps?) Menu changes were not specified. Substitution wine was not revealed - charged the same price as the menu-provided selection that we preferred. Steak was inaccurately prepared, too tough and stringy -- would need a chain saw to cut through what should have been "medium-rare." I also had gastro issues from eating here. Nothing will entice us to return. Oh, and I will never forget how unpleasant this experience was since it was a special occasion -- my spouse's birthday.

We absolutely love the charcuterie board here! Came back twice just for it. However, where you sit will have a big impact on your experience. Hearing pots and pans bang around and staff loudly talking can be distracting so I suggest to request to be seated away from the kitchen window.

Excellent service with prompt seating of our booking; bar was quite busy and it is our opinion a second barkeep should have been on duty; quite a wonderful and varied menu with many interesting preparations and especially small plates. My main of seared scallops on a bed of very flavorful risotto with bits of smoked meat was wonderful, altho' I'd have preferred the searing of the scallops to have been a bit more done. Nice wine list with a very smooth and tangy Sauvignon Blanc that I very much enjoyed. Overall, a very good experience.
