Calamari appetizer..... the best..... doesn't taste like a mass produced deep-fried kids item.
It tasted like each piece was hand made and carefully hand cooked....it was that good!

I'm 65, with just an average amount of restaurant experience, and usually am dissapointed with either the 6 oz filet or the 6 oz lobster tail. Was not dissapointed with either. I asked for medium rare and that's what I got and it was tender and tasty. The tail was not over cooked which is what usually disappoints me and it wasn't under cooked; it was amazing, it was substantial probably pushing the upper boundary of 6 oz. I wasn't left feeling 'wish it was bigger'.

The chocolate cake was too saturated in strawberry jelly like liquid; way too saturated. They should have reduced it (made it thicker) and poured it around the outsides after the cake was
placed. I asked for coffee but did not get it.

We spent three hours there celebrating daughter's birthday with seven of her friends. The lighting was perfect, down low and they brought a dessert lit with a candle and toof a few pics
of their own and fashioned it into a birthday card which was very nice. They need a better camera; I just got a beautiful camera for my daughter's birthday along with a stellar classic lens
that took draw dropping photos before the dinner, and when I seen the orange-ish pics I thought what I thought.

I "pre-vailed" at my attempt to have everyone starved so they could appreciate Scott's diverse menu and enjoy an appetizer, a main course and a rich dessert and the total for nine was nine hundred; just right for nine hungry, thirsty people included a bottle of wine a mixed drink, a half dozen virgin drinks.

It was a rich experience and would do it again.

It had been a few years since my last visit to Scott’s. The food was good, not excellent, our waiter was very attentive and provided great service and the view was beautiful. However, I was so disappointed by the way the hostess and manager treated us when we arrived. They didn’t smile and both were unfriendly and unwelcoming. For this reason, I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to friends or family.

We always enjoy Scott’s for the view and great service. This visit we enjoyed salmon and sole. There was a strange chemical odor where we sat. Distracted from the atmosphere.

Sadly they didn’t seem prepared for a Valentines Day crowd at all. There was no distinction between customers with reservations and walk-ins. There was no communication to the customers about how that operation was supposed to work the customers just kinda communicated with one another about it. There was just one long wrapping line in a small crowded lobby area. We had an 8pm reservation and got seated at 9pm. The wait staff looked worn out and tired. Our waiter didn’t tell us anything about the menu but just asked what we wanted. Several of the menú items were unavailable so that really limited choices which cheapened the experience. The waiter brought me the wrong plate and gave it to someone else, I’m pretty sure he also brought my plate from someone else because the food was cold and he didn’t bring it from the kitchen. My wife’s food was cold as well and they were supposed to give her crab legs but gave her a couple small pieces of what looked like leftover crabmeat scraps. If that wasn’t bad enough, a few of the wait staff was just standing around staring at us for most of the night... that’s interesting because I never got or was even offered a refill on my drink; that glass of sprite I paid $5 for! To top it all off we had to ask for our bill and no one even bothered to ask if we wanted dessert. Tonight was a major failure and it was overly clear that the wait staff and chefs were tired and just no longer in the mood to uphold the standards established by Scott’s.

Lobster ravioli came in not as hot as I would like. The sautéed seafood was good though. But they forgot my drink & I have to ask it again. The service was good though.

Valentine’s Day was an absolute nightmare. After waiting 20 mins to check in for our reservation, we got sat in a cold, drafty room. 15 mins goes by before some bus guy asks for our drink orders. Another 15 mins goes by before he realizes he still hasn’t grabbed them. Long story short, my date and I ended up leaving after speaking to the manager who, as kind as he was, didn’t seem to be able to handle the restaurant. We were regular patrons here, but, sadly we will find a new date spot.

I’m not sure if they made a mistake and over booked the place but I don’t recommend it for Valentines night. Grant it we were there exactly at 7:30pm which was the time of our reservation but the reservation line was ridiculous. Then we weren’t even in the main restaurant. I believe they sat us in the reception area where they have events. They set the area up with fold out tables, I can’t remember if it allowed us to select what area to sit in when I made the reservation but regardless I didn’t think we wouldn’t be in the main room at all! And our steaks were over cooked. I just think they reserved way too many people, a medium steak had no pink. I think this place is great, service is great but just not the place for Valentines night especially because if your spending a good chunk of money you expect something better.
