First time at 47 Scott and overall the experience was great. The food was great, but slightly overpriced. Service wasn’t horrible.

The main was good but sides just ok. Risotto cake seemed to be missing risotto.

Just in area for a few days. Great menu options for all. Custom cocktail list was great! Bacon finish whiskey mash was amazing.

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.

First time we've been to this restaurant and we'll definitely be back! A varied menu along with perfectly prepared appetizer and main course resulted in our thorough enjoyment. Definitely try their specials. I did and thoroughly enjoyed the mahi mahi which was perfectly prepared.

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.

Thank you, again, for a lovely evening! We dined prior to seeing Mavis Staples at The Fox, and enjoyed our dinner so much! You have become one of our top favorite restaurants in Tucson! When we choose to dine “downtown”.....we choose 47 Scott!

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.

Our first time visiting this restaurant and it certainly won’t be our last. A find in downtown Tucson. The food quality overall was exceptional. Only one issue: the seafood in the cioppino was plentiful and delicious. My personal preference for the broth is a clear seafood stock. This cioppino had a tomato broth - not a great choice. Other than that small thing, all of our entries exceeded our expectations. Great job!

Loved the food but was a little slow getting us drinks - like 15 minutes? But was great about getting us a bigger table when our group grew and the food was excellent! Loved the swordfish special!

I want to say stay away so I can keep this place to myself. Superb service, flavors that absolutely knock your socks off. Literally everything we ate was flawless. The brussels and bacon, the crab cake the spinach and beet salad, the cioppino the scallops the truffle mash the tiramisu the mango sorbet ...amazing place!,
