Good choice for a meal. A little pricy but good quality. Service is great, cocktails are nice, food delivery is fast. Only knock is that it’s noisy when 3/4 full of diners.

I enjoyed a nice dinner with my wife and son at Scott's this past week. I had the Halibut, my wife had the Salmon, and my son had the New York Steak. The meals were presented nicely and the food tasted great. I also had the Milian Clams as an appetizer. We brought our own wine, I believe the corkage was $15. We had a piece of the Key Lime Pie for desert, I thought the size of the slice of pie was pretty small for the cost, besides that the dinner entrees where great! Will definitely be back.

Our server was outstanding. Two of us have complicated food restrictions. She went out of her way to make sure that the food was safe for us, but also ensured that the adjustments still resulted in very tasty and satisfying meals. She also helped us resolve parking questions and let us know that we were entitled to a discount because we were going next to a ballet at the Lesher Center. The experience could not have been better!

Second time. Definitely not as good as the first time. Food was mediocre. Crab cake appetizer was good. Swordfish was tough. Sole was tasteless. Some of the mashed potatoes were luke warm. Wine was just okay for the price. Deserts were very disappointing. Ambiance is still great. Service good-to-very good (also not as good as first time).
Pricey. After enjoying first visit, thought it made sense on a special occasion. After most recent experience, I would not be willing to pay what they are asking on any occasion.

Great looking venue! We walked in and felt really good about this choice. I will preface this review by saying that Scott’s is certainly better than our experience would indicate. Most of the food was adequate but not mind blowing by any stretch. However, one in our group ordered the Lobster Thermador and given the cost expectations were very high but it came out so over cooked that it was not edible. We summoned our waiter and he very rudely and unapologetically removed the dish and walked away. It was a full 10 minutes before he came back and asked if my friend wanted anything else. Very bush league and unprofessional especially for a higher end server. I will also say that our group was really trying to be kind and patient but to no avail. We did not get a visit from the Manager either. Service is what makes or breaks most experiences and this one was terrible. Perhaps our server was simply having a bad night and the cooks in the back made a mistake because a CHEF would have never let something that poorly executed ever leave his kitchen.

I stood around for 5 minutes waiting for someone to seat me. The hostess was unsmiling & seemed a little put out. The waiter, on the other hand, was very pleasant, efficient, polite. Also, high marks for the valet attendant who helped my elderly dining companion into her car.

My boyfriend and I came here for the sunday jazz brunch for our anniversary and we're going to make it an annual tradition. The food was outstanding, especially the unlimited mimosas, and the service was amazing. Our glasses were never empty and even though the server didn't have to serve us our food, she checked on us plenty of times. The jazz band was great as well.

Scott’s is one of our favorites before attending one of the musicals we have tickets for at the Lescher. They offer 15% off on the back of the tix or often have a coupon for $15 off. But, the real reason is the delicious Cioppino they offer with Dungeness crab, prawns, clams, scallops and other fish! Served in a charming handled copper pan with garlic bread, it is warm, filling and simply delicious. Service is professional and attentive. Beautiful ambiance but can get a bit noisy. Live music!

We waited for 30 minutes to be seated even though we had made a reservation and then another 45 minutes for our food. Over an hour in total!! There was no menu for kids either which was disappointing - I wish I'd known that ahead of time - I made an assumption which was a mistake on my part. In future I would avoid this restaurant on a Saturday night peak hours. It was my husbands birthday and he loves seafood so he was happy enough!!

This was my first time at the Walnut Creek Scott’s. My girlfriend and I were celebrating our one month anniversary and, my first time eating out since finding out I have to eat gluten free. The service was great and our waitress was attentive and very accommodating to my eating needs. She and the florist helped me surprise my lady with a dozen roses delivered to our table. The food, service and atmosphere made this a special night at an outstanding restaurant.

We have been going there since the seventies when they first opened, as a couple, with friends, for business and fund raisers. Except on a very rare occasion, the service has been very good and the manager has apologized profusely and comped either drinks or appetizers.

Scott's is my go-to restaurant when I'm in the mood for great food and great service in an elegant setting. They have been consistently great for many years. Whenever I want a special night out, they are the first restaurant I think of. I would like them to offer a self parking option (though valet is free). I just don't like other people driving my car. They said that that is the outcome of parking changes in Walnut Creek. Trips into Walnut Creek in general are becoming annoying.

I've been to Scotts a few times. Food is good and well prepared (albeit a little on the pricey side). For the price and my previous experience, I expected a higher degree of service. Waiter was overworked covering too many tables. We noticed the slow service and less than attentive approach we should have gotten. Goes to the "value" and for what Scotts is trying to sell for a WC restaurant they need to make sure their staff isn't stretched so far. Service could have been better.

This was a wonderful restaurant. We were celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday, and it was a great choice for that. Only complaint was that my filet was chewy, but I didn’t complain and I know they would have accommodated me if I had. My boyfriend’s filet was excellent, though. I’d still recommend it.

It is a good restaurant, food, environment; however, too busy to provide good service. In the bar, they lost my credit card (found after excessive search), as an apology I got second glass of wine, but no one asked if I want that much alcohol. I didn’t want it. One glass is usually enough for me. It would make more sense if they won’t charge me for the glass I bought.
