    Overall a very good experience and I will likely be back. I ordered the lunch menu item with potatoes and mushroom and although good, it wasn't highly memorable. I love fingerling potatoes and mushrooms and was therefore slightly disappointed.

    The appetizers were amazing! Octopus with kale - to die for! Oysters with a beautiful light green sauce. And the cod was so good. They did a wonderful job of making the cod gluten-free for my husband, who has celiac disease, by changing out the couscous for black lentils. Wow! And the dessert as well - they separated the pumpkin mousse and caramel from the gluten parts in a very creative way. We stayed overnight at the Thompson and also had breakfast in the morning. Again they were great about making us a safe gluten-free breakfast that was tasty and wonderful. Our server was wonderful!

    We are so glad you enjoyed your meal with us at Scout and that we were able to create a delicious gluten free dinner for your husband.

    My husband and I took my parents and a neighbor here for Christmas Eve dinner. The restaurant was not decorated for the holidays at all. The room was overly brightly lit. We were a party of 5 and we were sat at a booth that could easily have accommodated 10 people. The service was friendly, although they never could seem to get the right plate to the right person. We ordered the "house made challah" but it was dry and crumbly. Three out of the five of us got the squash tartin appetizer. It was presented as a cold squash puree on top of a very thick slice of chewy bread. The frisee salad was tasty enough, but the cold gelatinous egg on top was off-putting. (I have only ever had this French-bistro stalwart with a warm egg on top). On the up side- the pork bourguignon and steak dishes were tasty. The desserts were creative. The cocktails were strong and generously poured. However, for a holiday dinner, and for $400 for 5 people, it was a disappointment.

    I really wanted to love this restaurant! The food was terrible - a very strange mix and flavors that did not go together. Prime example - oysters with cucumber mignonette... it was so awful. The smoked tartrate was just ok but the redeeming dish was the clam chowder. My husband and I ordered a steak to share and it took forever to prepare and came out overcooked. We sent it back. They also included a 20% tip. The entire meal was $90 and they didn't charge us for the steak or the drinks we ordered so not sure why it was so expensive?? Needless to say, we would not recommend this restaurant and we will not be going back.

    Embarrassingly bad experience for a restaurant attached to the very nice Thompson hotel. First, our server greeted us ~12 minutes after we sat down. Next, it took an additional ~25 minutes to receive our drink from the bar because "so sorry, the bartender is very busy" (yet the place wasn't packed or bustling). We actually felt sorry for our server. She apologized so many times throughout our evening that we came to believe that "I'm so sorry!" has become part of her nightly routine. Very disappointing. Below average food and a horrible overall experience

    I haven’t eaten here except for thanksgiving but based on that experience I will never go back. The food was almost inedible and at $95.00 per head you would certainly expect better! We were told the incorrect time to arrive for the complimentary drink at the nest and had to wait for the entire evening seating to finish their drinks before we could sit at our table. Then we all ate at the same time which made the service very difficult on the staff and forget getting anything extra or even a bread basket upon request. We couldn’t find any sign of oyster in the oyster dressing. The trout was fishy and all of the food was bland, tasteless or generally unappealing. I understand that group type dinners may not go as smoothly as eating out at a restaurant regularly, but for $95 per head without drinks I wouldn’t expect horrible food and fair at best service after waiting for an extra hour due to the hostess being given the wrong information and no one informing us until we had been there for a half an hour.

    Friendsgiving- we really liked the idea and concept of friendsgiving. Sitting at a communal table meeting new people great. A Prosecco to start the evening at the Nest was a great way to mix, mingle & meet people & the view alway pleases. There was much confusion as to the table arrangements- but I think a group of people wanted to sit together & alone.. throwing the seating arrangement out the window. Leaving to staff to scramble together a plan. Once seated the thanksgiving dinner was lovely. I really enjoyed the celery soup. They also served a trout, which was exceptional. The turkey was a disappointment as it was dry... the wine pairing was great ... in all it was a nice dinner. Our table mates proved to be a mixed bag, which has nothing to do with the restaurant . Half our table was a family clearly not wanting to engage with outsiders . The others were nice enough, but one can never be prepared for crazy & morally superior. Lol-

    The menu is very limited and somewhat overpriced. There are no good vegetarian options. The best our waiter could offer was pasta which isn’t a desirable vegetarian option. The Squash Tartine was a thick slice of bread with a thin layer of whipped squash on top. There was no mention of bread being the predominant part of this menu item.

    Food was very disappointing. Everything was bland and underseasoned except for one dish that was way too salty. Clam chowder tasted like cream. It wasn't bad, but it was bland and one-dimensional. The clams themselves we're good--very fresh. The bitter greens salad was awful. There was a green puree on the plate that was flat and bitter. The chefs need to start tasting the food before it leaves the kitchen! The squash tartine was also incredibly bland. The plate looked good--it was very well presented--but the squash was flavorless. I couldn't force myself to finish it. The pork bourguingon was the most flavorful of the dishes I tried, but was way too salty. It was a bit of a shock after all the bland, underseasoned dishes that preceded it. It was so salty that I wasn't able to finish it. The service was good and the ambiance is nice, but I can't recommend it.

    Scout was disappointing. We first tried to go to Scout in the early afternoon (3P) for drinks and snacks. It was quiet and fairly empty. We asked if there was a table available - and we were told only front seating section was open. Didn't really answer our question - so we pointed to a specific front table and asked if we could sit there. We were seated and given a lounge/bar menu - and then sat, with no other follow up. So we got up and left. Second attempt was for dinner. We had a reservation and were seated way in back of restaurant (perhaps because we had our 11-year old son?). Tucked away - in a fairly empty restaurant. Not a great experience. Husband ordered salad (bacon vinaigrette was good) and steak tartare (which was salty). I had spaghetti with dungeness crab and uni (bland) and son had penne pasta with cheese sauce (best dish of the three). Dessert option for my son was pear sorbet or fresh baked cookie. He opted for cookie - which turned out to be a ginger cookie (not kid friendly - why not just chocolate chip or sugar cookie?). The wine we ordered was good but the markup was crazy! With all the great food options in Seattle, I would scout for another restaurant - skip this SCOUT.

    Our waiter asked to take our food order at the same time as our drink order. By telling her we were not ready quite yet we were apparently saying we would never be ready. We had to wave her down to order, wave her down to order another round of drinks, and wave her down twice to get the check. We watched the servers standing around talking with our first drink order that condensation had built up on everything. We won't be back. Seattle has too many great brunch places for this service.
