Aside from the server forgetting I was allergic to something twice. Mixing up the order and bringing the food to the table before telling him of the allergy a 3rd time, it was a wonderful night. Food was wonderful. It was Valentine's Day, so understandably busy. But if someone says they are allergic to crab twice, don't bring crab cakes to the table lol. Still will come back and enjoy the wonderful food again.

The food was mediocre. They sat us in a annex room of the restaurant. It felt like we were eating in the cafeteria of an old folks home.

Had Valentine’s Day dinner and all in all it was good. Entrees were excellent. Food was delicious. Pre fix menu was a perfect selection of salad, prime rib, crab cake, asparagus and mashed potatoes, dessert of chocolate strawberry, macaron, chocolate mousse, and topped with whipped cream and a chocolate heart, and champagne. Service was very slow but that’s to be expected on Valentine’s. Bar service could be better. Didn’t make our cocktails very good. We had a lovely, romantic dinner along with the harpist playing music in the back ground made the night memorable and we will return!

Everything was lovely. The food, the jazz, our waitress and so on. I went with a group of my closests friends who have never been before (except my cousin and I) and they all loved the place. We went for my birthday and the staff came out with desert and candle, a rose and even took our picture and framed it. It was so nice! Can’t wait to go back!

You will need alot of money to eat here.There's not a big selection especially if you bring your children.The pianist is amazing,the garden view is great.The kids choice was bbq chicken and onion pizza and a certain burger.No pasta options.Every option seem to be $40 & up.We ordered water and we still were almost $200.00.I went there because we had a gift certificate otherwise,we could never afford to go there.We would LOVE it if it wasn't super expensive.

Scott’s in Walnut Creek is another one of those gems that’s been around. Never goes out of style, it’s classy, classic, and timeless. The food, service, and ambience, is consistent, from start to end, with the valet parking, to the welcome, and thank you, at the conclusion. Always a most pleasant dining experience, that doesn’t disappoint.

The food is terrific and we enjoyed the live music at a reasonable volume. Lovely.

Our wait server was less than exceptional. 1) Took food orders from the five men first and then the three ladies. 2) Asked only once, at the beginning, for drink orders. 3) When one of our guests asked for another beer she said "of course" and left the table without looking at the other glasses on the table or asking if anyone else wanted another glass of wine or beverage. 4) She never did bring the guest his second beer. 5) When she brought the check she had hand written a note on it to let us know what a 20 percent gratuity would be, however, she calculated it on the full amount including tax. This might have simply been that she has never been trained that gratuities are calculated pre-tax.

Our waiter basically ignored us in our opinion. Reservations had been made well in advance too.
We were seated adjacent to group of 6-8 diners with screaming and crying children. Awful! The large group behind us were very loud like they were the only ones in the restaurant.
The waiter spent his time at other tables as he walked by our table several times not checking with us as the evening progressed on.
The food is good but the management needs to check on their wait staff.
We have been to this restaurant several times and about 50% of the time we end up with wait staff that is aloof.

Scott's is known for its seafood. Each month has a theme and we usually go in October for their wonderful lobster Thermidor. I had Dungeness crab pasta which a loads of cheese and fresh crab. My wife had an outstanding salmon entrée. Not inexpensive, but worth it for a special occasion.

Our party of two enjoyed a traditional seafood dinner of poached salmon entree and the mixed seafood salad, each of which was very fresh and shared. The kitchen did a nice job splitting each dish for us—the half portion of salad (high quality shellfish) alone was very filling. I’m a San Francisco native so I appreciate the classic dishes like they had at Fisherman’s Wharf. Our wait staff provided excellent service; even as we were leaving I casually mentioned that it was my birthday our waiter insisted that I wait a minute and then presented me with a rose!

Had the Tuna, tasted ok.
Something didn't agree with the belly, had a few visits to the growler.
Key lime was nice and light.

I hosted a brunch at Scotts as a charity fundraiser, with contributors bidding to join me for a Sunday brunch. Alas, the cost of Sunday brunch at Scotts, now about $70 per person plus the mandatory tip for a party of 6, made this a more painful event for my bank account than in past years. While the food is good, the spotty service and relatively noisy environment take away from the value as a social event.

I have one more charity event that I already agreed to host at Scotts on February 10, but that will likely be it. They obviously have plenty of demand for the Sunday brunch, but it’s not working for me.
