Scampo at The Liberty Hotel Ratings and Reviews
Always enjoy our time at Scampo. Unfortunately I was served the wrong dish, The Pig alforno, when I ordered the Pork Chop. The dish presentation made it look like a pork chop, but the fat content was too much for me to handle as I learned in the middle of the night
We will come back but I am going to much more diligent in paying attention to what is served to me
The food is very good and the chef is good. But the restaurant is so overpriced and the cost of a glass of wine ridiculous. Also, the night that I went the restaurant rushed us out because they had a party for the employees scheduled . I'm sorry, when you go to a restaurant that costs as much as this one does you want to make an experience of it and not be rushed out at 8:30pm!! This boils down to greed and the managers should have shut the restaurant for this night if they were more concerned about a company party for their employees then their customers. I'm honestly not sure I will return.
We had Thanksgiving dinner here and it was excellent. Reasonably priced for the occasion and actually more food than we could eat. A fine, tasty experience. Unfortunately, the regular menu on New Year's Day did not compare. The serving lady was expert but promoted the more expensive items. The portions were small and I thought over-priced for what we got. I had beet risotto with lobster (odd combination). There was a small amount of risotto -- I'd say about half a cup and a bit runny -- with a sliver of lobster. The flavor of the risotto was good. The side dish of several stalks of broccoli was under done. My friends were happy with their meals but they were also well-lubricated. The chocolate dessert was quite rich. Looking ahead, I'll consider special occasions when there are special menus but if this was an example of daily fare, probably not.
Half the group drove in from NH the other half from RI. There was lots of traffic and we didn't arrive at the same time. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Thank you!
We were able to have a post Christmas celebration in a relaxed atmosphere. The food and wine were delicious. I highly recommend the clam pizza and greek salad.
chief's special for the night was blackened bass that was much less than our server led us to expect. The dish was poor and did not include the lobster or the crab portions that our server told us was part of the dish. I will not return. if you do chose to go be forewarned and prepared
This was our first time at Scampo but will not be our last. Excellent food, interesting decor and the Liberty Hotel is fascinating. Our waitress was excellent; she, obviously had been there for some time . Wonderful dining experience; a bit pricey so bring your checkbook but, overall, worth it.
I was really looking forward to going here for a special occasion with a family member. The restaurant is beautiful and the service was exceptional, especially Brian. They do this thing where they start by coming over to the table with the bread sticks on a plate, and then dump them onto the table, onto the tablecloth. Kind of weird. The green sauce is on a large plate and with 4 people sharing it? The appetizers were good, but not great. I ordered the steak. For 48 Dollars, I didn't expect it to be sliced up like deli meat. Very disappointed. I have to say, the pork chop was amazing, and with the side dishes they served with it, made it the hit of the night. I would be hard pressed to recommend Scampo to anyone. There are so many amazing restaurants in Boston to choose from, and at this price you should leave feeling good about your meal. And for Gods sake, don't start off the meal by having someone walk over, and throw bread sticks all over your table.
My favorite place lunch in Boston when I'm in the city. The quality of the ingredients and the amazing flavors of the food make every meal a culinary delight. I particularly like the fish dishes. Along with great service, an excellent selection of wines by the glass, and a comfortable, quiet ambiance , they all combine to make Scampo an outstanding experience.
I've been a few times and now can't say I'll be going back. Service was horrible. We had 8pm reservations and were not seated until about 8.30. Many other people seemed to be walking in off the street and sitting. The manager tried to accommodate with a starter but nothing got better after that. Our waiter didn't truly know the menu. After salads and drinks--our meal was so delayed we didn't actually eat until 10.30! It seemed a few people in our section were in similar situations. Its the holiday season--the restaurant should be more prepared with better qualified staff on a Saturday night.
There was way too much staff and it got very confusing. 10 people must have come up to us and I felt like we were constantly being bothered. When it came to split the bill at the end, of course, someone came up and took both our credit cards so my fiance and I could split the bill. But then only my card was charged because some other staff took my fiance's and did not connect the dots. It was very annoying. Food is overpriced and it was so dark and loud.
Our waiter was very kind and attentive. But we went on Sunday at 2pm and the only available menu was brunch, and the offerings were limited. A better selection would have been nice. Also, in spite of the dining room being mostly empty, we were sat right next to the register, and one waiter was training another waiter, and our Entire meal was over shadowed by how to ring this and that up. I wish I had said something. But the restaurant was nice, the decor good, the waiter very good. Just the menu and our seating were disappointing.
Food is always delicious. The noise level at dinner was so loud we couldn’t hear each. This has been our experience several times. We will not go back for dinner. We enjoy sitting at the bar around 5pm when it’s quiet. Staff was attentive to the gluten free guest we had with us and brought him a sorbet on the house for his birthday. Classy place except the noise level which is due to the walls and high ceiling which can’t be fixed. Go early before the crowds arrive.
The food was well seasoned and very tasty. I had the beet risotto with lobster, whuch I would definitely order again, though a larger piece of lobstee would have been appreciated. My companion had the lobster pizza which he insisted I taste. It was astoundingly flavorful, it was a symphony of flavor set forth on a palette of pizza dough. A novel meal idea that was executed beautifully and tasted delightful. Our server was thoughtful, attentive and exceptional.
The only thing I did NOT like was that the breadsticks were shuttled off the platter and onto the tablecloth - neither sanitary nor appetizing. I tasted the one breadstick that didn't touch the tablecloth and it was rather tasty. If the idea is to save space as the bread sticks are rather long, perhapa they coulf be placed in a tall vase-like container. If it's just a novel way to present them, it should be stopped, as placing them directly onto the tablecloth irrevocably negates their appeal.
Given that it is a hotel restaurant and priced as such, I expected more from Scampo. The restaurant smelled like fish during the whole meal. Additionally, the seats are dirty and need to be reupholstered. Overall, the ambience was lacking and the food did not do enough to soften the blow.
Went for Thanksgiving- it was very busy, but they handled the crowd beautifully. We were not rushed at all, the service was attentive as usual.Our only complaint was that the opening greens dish and the soup were a bit bland tasting. The rest of the traditional turkey dinner was delicious. The cranberry sauce and gravy were especially wonderful as was the pumpkin roulade for dessert. Scampo’s serves the tastiest decaf coffee I’ve ever had. Excellent restaurant.
