Scarborough Fair Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Scarborough Fair this weekend. Everything was wonderful. It’s such a pretty restaurant and we had a romantic alcove table. Our table was even decorated for our anniversary! Food was delicious, service was terrific, and we never felt rushed.
This was my first time here and if it weren't for the meal being very good, I would not have returned. We were a party of 3 and had a very early reservation. We arrived and the restaurant was mostly empty (because of the early time slot). The host table is sunken 3 steps down and far from the door, so we had to yell down the stairs to the host about our reservation details. She sat us at a very small table clearly meant for two people, and right next to the door where we were standing. I asked for another table because it was cold being right next to the door. She said she had no other tables. We then went to sit down and couldn't fit, and our extremely heavy table (that we couldn't move ourselves) had to be moved for the 3 of us to get into this very tight corner. I again asked for another table and was told no. My chair was jammed against the wall behind me, and the others were against the windowsill, and we had to be careful of an electrical wire that was plugged in behind us tightly across to the window. Once we were in, there was no getting out. At that point I vowed never to come again. But like I said, our servers were excellent and so was all of our meals, absolutely delicious. Then they had to come and move the table so we could get out. So, I will come again but I strongly suggest that table be omitted and the host podium be put in its place. If that really can't be done at the very least do not put more than 2 people at that table.
I went with my Son, Daughter-in-law . It was m y treat for my son's 59th Birthday.
The table as decorated with little colorful Birthday wishes . My son is a very special guy
so I was so happy that I picked this place. Our waiter made the evening. He was friendly
made us laugh yet gave us the best service. He suggested a wine for us that was one of the best wine's I have had in a long time. Thank you for making my son's birthday so special.
I was worried on arrival as the Parking Lot was completely full. Nevertheless we were seated immediately at a table in an alcove. The staff immediately saw to water and bread and took our drink order. They presented the menus to us. The specials were discussed and we placed our order. When the food arrived it was exactly right. Everything was of first quality. My date had a vegetable tower and I a steak. Coffee and dessert followed. This was a total success for a Birthday dinner to celebrate her birthday. Thanks to the entire establishment for a great night.
This was quite a disappointing experience. The waiter was not at all accommodating to my dietary request to substitute vegetables instead of potatoes?! Our meals were overdone and tasteless. For fine dining prices, I was anticipating delicious and all we received was boring and tasteless.
another wonderful night at this wonderful restaurant. My wife and I were down the beach for our anniversary and we made it a point to go here again. They made it extra special for setting up out table with anniversary decorations and flower pedals to make us feel special. THANK YOU.
This was our first time dining here. It was nice and quiet for conversation, we each had a salad, an appetizer and dessert. Service was prompt and our waiter checked on our table a number of times. The food was very good. I will definitely return. There was live music beginning in the bar area just as we were leaving. The music was quite nice and not too loud.
We dined at this restaurant for our anniversary and it was perfect! The hostess (i'm sorry forgot her name) was so welcoming and friendly.We had a romantic alcove table that had a paper "Love" napkin with rose petals sprinkled on it! Our waiter was great and very helpful in our decision as to what to order. The menu isn't that big but we definitely will have to go back because we were interested in many things! We ordered the crab cake and lobster bisque soup, lamb chops and duck, then for dessert the "hot and cold" which is apple pie a la mode! Everything was delicious! I would definitely recommend this restaurant, a little pricey but perfect for a special occasion.
Reserved a table for our anniversary. Food and service was outstanding. The private seating areas are a great idea. The only downside was a very loud woman at the table above us. The way everything is designed, her voice carried heavily and really affected our first experience here. I would like to see management address such issues but this will not prevent us from returning. Absolutely wonderful restaurant.
