They just get everything right at Scampi. From the greeting when you walk in to the thank you for coming when you leave. The staff, Max and Stephanie in particular, go out of their way to make sure you have a great night. The bartenders really know how to make a great drink. The food is divine - I love the crudos and roasted cauliflower to start, and the chicken and steak entrees. Every time I’ve been, someone in my party has had the Mafaldini Scampi and loved it. If I had to use one word to describe Scampi, it would be superb.

Worst service I’ve had in a long time. I’m not sure where the miscommunication was, but it was unfortunate. Nice place, hopefully they can figure it out.

Scampi did not have our open table reservation. I don’t know why, however, we were seated. It would have been all stars if not for waiting for over one hour from the time our order was taken to being served.

Overall the place was not bad; actually "SCAMPI" was great.
However, very annoyed when I received the check with 20% tip selected by the server.
Normally I do give more than 20% tip after adding up but the first restaurant which received the bill with tip 'clicked' and server just asked me to sign.

We had a table in the back. Service was OK not exceptional. Portions were fitting of a light meal not a fancy dinner. The price sorta reflected that.

The place is cute, good vibe on a Friday evening. Pretty easy to book on open table. Food was amazing, the scampi is a must to order, and the pasta is home made I think, super nice!!!

Amazing experience. Scampi is the perfect place for an elevated dining experience and incredible food at an affordable price.

The signature Mafaldini Scampi is a MUST! Other favourites: Red Snapper Ceviche, Fluke, Mezzaluna and Octopus. For dessert, the Cassata (best dessert I’ve ever had in my life). They also have Black Truffles (off menu) which you can add to any dish for only $20! And they shave A LOT of truffle, totally worth it.

Can’t wait to go back!!

I had a wonderful time at scampi. The steak was delicious and the shrimp pasta was so tasteful. Our waiter was extremely attentive and informative about the menu. I would recommend dining here to anyone and will surely be returning here.

Amazing place if you have tastebuds. Everything was great. Do yourself a favor and try the sunchokes from the vegtables, best thing I've had in a while.

It was my uncle’s 90th birthday on Valentine’s Day.
I am sure it was one of Scampi’s busiest nights of the year.
Yet, for our party of 7, the staff was so attentive and accommodating...and kind. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Went for Valentine’s Day. The food we had was good, but the VDay menu was lacking and included VERY small portions- all meat was an up charge? In addition, the service was just ok. Felt rushed and cramped, which should have not been the case at $80 a person. Wine list was a bit confusing as well. Was hoping for a nice, relaxing dinner out. Ended up getting tacos afterward :/

We were sat in the back room “steerage” so it was quiet. Signature scampi pasta was delicious, albeit basic. Cocktails were yummy. Desserts were fantastic! Get the one with apricots!

Food was delicious, the shrimp scampi was to die for and so was the red snapper ceviche. Service was ehh, I went with two of my girlfriends and waited a decent amount of time for our first round of drinks to arrive.

My 2nd time here and this time the food and service were better
Albeit the first time was a Saturday evening

The food was sensational
We shared a few veggies and wow we would have eaten more
Then 4 of us shared the perfectly cooked thomahawk steak and it was fantastic

Only disappointment was a limited offering of caffeine free tea
Our server was quick to offer another blend to try and ordered it free if we didn’t care for it
No one liked it as it was an odd flavor

It was a great meal
