Have a spontaneous romantic dinner there. If you like quiet, and want to guarantee a romantic table, go on a week night. You will love the romantic atmosphere.
Enjoy our delicious eclectic cuisine in this neighborhood gem.
The atmosphere was amazing and they even decorated the table for our anniversary. The duck entree was amazing! The steak was cooked perfectly, however, the goat cheese added a sweetness that was a bit underwhelming. The service was fantastic. I definitely recommend Scarborough fair and will go back.
Have been celebrating at Scarborough Fair for years.. Always my go to restaurant for a special occasion. Love the ambience
Excellence! Service, set up perfectly for birthday celebration.
Love this restaurant for a special occasion as we can have a private table nice quiet and cozy. And Great food and service.
I think Scarborough Fair will become my favorite restaurant.... Am new to the area but so far I believe this will be my Number 1.
They had special table decorations for our occasion. Food always delicious. Very romantic setting.
Very good. Food was great. Service was very good. The restaurant is very beautiful. Would defiantly try, will be going back soon !
We had a table reserved and still had to wait other than that it was a nice experience
Overall very impressed. The food was excellent and the ambiance was very nice. The setup of the restaurant is a little odd but overall a great meal and would recommend for a quiet date night.
Did not feel service was up to their normal standards, waitress did not offer any specials for the evening other then the soup of the day.
Have always enjoyed Scarborough Fair, maybe an off night or problems because of renovations.
It seems Open Table users get the worst tables in this place either table by the front door with woobly tables. I had to get up and ask the host to fix it. I am a frequent visitor even without using this app..and there is a service difference and the server reflected it as well.
We enjoyed our night (it was our 34th Wedding Anniv.) Hannah was our server. She did a great job telling us about the specials. She was very professional and sweet. (Thank you Hannah!) The whole staff was very nice also. The food was excellent. Very warm and cozy.
One of our favorite places. You would be doing yourself a favor dining here.
The food and service is always outstanding
Scarborough Fair is great! Beautiful reataurant, great ambiance. Food and wine are very good and at a great value.
Excellent food and service. We took sophisticated friends from NYC and they raved about the food. Very large portions which meant two us took half our entrees home. Only small negative was the bread, a dry tasteless roll. Everything else was beyond expectations so why the lack of attention to the bread?
Wonderful experience. We went there for a romantic dinner for my wife's birthday. Tables 1-6 are in private little cubby-holes. Very pretty interior. Service from our waitress Michele was excellent.
Still under renovation, but the parking lot is finished. Maybe bu mothers day.
Easter. We always go there for our special occasions. The restaurant is a unique experience. And the food is excellent. Service is also very good. It is on the pricey side. But it is definitely worth it
The pictures must have been from 10 years ago as the place is very run down. We will not recommend this restaurant
My husband wasn’t enthralled with his steak. He said he thinks it was previously frozen and it was not rare as he ordered. My steak was delicious though! The atmosphere was perfect for our anniversary dinner!
Everything about this restaurant is wonderful. We went during restaurant week and got three course dinners for $32.19. Everyone loved their dinner. My husband had the lamb chops and they were cooked to perfection and I had branzini which was excellent. We always go there for special occasions and we will certainly return again! They are under renovation right now and extending the restaurant. What I love most about Scarborough fair are the little alcoves they have for dining. It makes it a very quiet lovely experience Unlike restaurants that cram you win and I very noisy.
The most romantic restaurant in the area! Service and food were fantastic!
The food is always excellent with a wide variety of choices. Service is attentive and professional .
The good: Atmosphere, food, was given "private" table for our anniversary on steps, table was decorated with hearts for our anniversary. Was wished a happy anniversary by some staff. Main course meal was delicious. They don't rush you between courses- dining experience is relaxed and you have plenty of time to enjoy the ambiance and relaxing music.
The bad: restaurant is currently undergoing a renovation, parking lot is a mess, no nice views. We looked out to a resin waterfall feature (not operational) with a few resin statues of rabbits and other animals most of which were not standing, and a large black tube that was strewn across the foliage that was obviously there as part of the renovation that was taking place on that side of the building.
Food- calamari appetizer was hard (may have sat under heat lamp too long), gave us two rolls, didn't ask if we wanted any more. Didn't get salads with our meal and we didn't realize they were included until we looked again at the menu when we got home. Ordered filet mignon (cooked perfectly) and seafood capellini special - both were delicious. Made reservation on Open Table and mentioned the complimentary dessert offer that we received in an email in the reservation ( as was stated on the email), but charge was not removed from the bill (eating in a fancy place like this, you won't quibble over an $8 charge on your bill, and in the grand scheme of a $142 bill before gratuity, we just let it go) We ordered the warm apple pie with ice cream which should have been brought out quicker because the ice cream was almost fully melted.
Additional note: We have eaten here a few times in the past, and this was not our normal experience. It was a bit disappointing. I'm sure we will try again in the future.
A classy, whimsical, beautiful location with sublime food and drink offerings brought by friendly, knowledgeable wait staff. It's my first choice for dining out!
Great experience....we will be back!
FOOD WAS GREAT. SERVER WAS FANTASTIC. NICE QUIET ATMOSPHERE.
Excellent food - well prepared and high quality. The layout of the restaurant is perfect for having a conversation among guests. Servers knew when to check in with customers but not excessively. They clearly were well trained and did their job perfectly.
Great atmosphere. Delicious food. Staff was friendly and attentive.
Food was spot on - atmosphere was great and we dined for our wedding anniversary and we were offered a complimentary dessert to share 😀
We were seated next to the wall where the kitchen door opens and closed. It sounded like.someone was piunding.on the wall next to our table everytime it opened or closed. The food , service and atmosphere was perfect. Fix the door!
Always love the quiet atmosphere! Always beautifully decorated too! We ordered the February Love special for two and it was outstanding and excellent price range plus a very good portion size! Would recommend to anyone and perfect for a quiet dinner for two!
Put this on your must dine list. Food and atmosphere are awesome.
Second time here and as before the food was very good. The only thing I'm not happy about is that both times I've been to here they have sat us in the middle and I wanted an area with more room not against the wall and some what of a view. Hopefully next time I'll get that.
A unique and beautiful setting. Romantic.
Awesome, high quality food!
Ambiance is lovely, service is excellent, food is extraordinary. Highly recommended. Price may seem a bit high - but for a restaurant of this quality is isn't really high.
The only negative thing I could say was one of the entrees potatoes were cold....BUT...staff quickly apologized and brought a bowl of new hot ones.....all was good !
Amanda was awesome as our server. Food was very good and the venue is really charming. I would go back.
Was looking for something on the romantic side which fit this restaurant nicely. Unfortunately, a couple arrived with their son who looked about 12. All was fine until he broke out his smartphone and started watching videos with the volume up and no headphones. How the parents allowed that is beyond me but it was extremely rude. A reflection on the couple and not the restaurant although, I would have expected a manager to ask for the child to turn off the volume to his electronics. Small blemish on an otherwise nice night at a good restaurant.
