The menu has changed and not in a good way. They weren’t that busy and our server kept walking back and forth in front of our table watching us. We felt like we were being watched at all times. We barely ate and decided to just get the check and go to Bar Louie

We were seated quickly and our waiter arrived not too long afterwards. The waiter mentioned that they were offering specials on small plate dishes. So we decided to order a few things off of that menu. The sweet potato fries were delicious and came with a good portion. We also ordered cucumber sushi and spicy tuna sushi. I enjoyed the spicy tuna sushi but didn't really care for the cucumber sushi. I liked the atmosphere and it's a great restaurant to chill at before the movie or on a date night!

All was great as usual but would be nice to expand the menu. Maybe add fried green tomatoes and other snack type food.

The wait staff had no clue about any question we asked about food and beverage, and she was way to slow
She should know the menu of where she works and the wine list every question we asked she had to go find out the answer, over and over.
The Bar should carry a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc
The food took way to long

Happy Hour pricing was confusing. Our order came out wrong. Our bills at the end were wrong. Service was very slow for cocktails, sushi, and appetizers. I don’t plan on going back.

They changed the menu, there is really nothing like it used to be. If your used to the old scene and expect it to be anything like it was before the remodel, you got another thing coming. But the service was good. I still liked the atmosphere but the food needs work!

we had to wait a long time for our waitress. however i got managers attention and she took our order but our waitress never showed up until we got the attention of another waiter. they did give us a small discount for the wait and waitress was very nice once she decided to service us. the biggest issue was there were at least 4 or 5 tables seated after us that received their drinks and food before us. so, during that wait, our drinks were not even refilled, not counting that we waited about ten minutes before our first drinks were even ordered. we were there around 1640. our reservation was 1645. we were seated immediately but then ignored. as i stated though, it worked out in the end and luckily we came early so it didn’t interfere with movie.

When first opened, this was definitely a hot spot. The furnishings are worn; the service wasn't spot on or timely and the whole experience was disjointed. My husband received his sushi sampler a good 15 minutes before I received my appetizer and small bite. We tried valiantly to get our server's attention; or any server's attention to bring soy sauce (gasp - why with sushi?). We were able to catch server and request soy sauce when my food came out; so that's 15 minutes with no attention. We booked for convenience before our movie but they truly need to step up the professionalism. We listened to our waiter repeat his life tale to the couple next to us AFTER we'd asked for the ticket so we could get to our movie. Sigh.

We were seated promptly upon arrival, as we had made a reservation earlier that day. We ordered the edamame happy hour appetizer and the Ocean Seven Sushi as a main dish, both of which were good. While the food was good overall, but it is essentially the same menu as it has been for the last 5 years. Therefore, I strongly recommend that the menu be revamped as it is tired and worn out! The service was just average. Our server caught the fact that the kitchen did not put the eel sauce to the side as she delivered it to our table and immediately returned it to correct the order. The real problem is the fact that all the tables and booth seats need to be completely refurbished or replaced. The material on the majority, if not all of the booth seating is cracked/peeling, and will leave residue on whatever you are wearing. The owner/management have certainly NOT invested in maintaining the establishment properly!

We haven't been to Scene in a while bc the service had not been what it used to be since Cinemark took over the Monaco. But we were pleasantly surprised this visit. Our waiter was awesome (wish I could remember his name!). He was very attentive. Food was delicious. Hubby said it is the best burger in town. Glad to have a great experience.

We went on Mother's Day because most of the other restaurants were booked solid. It was fine for our 2 year grandson. The food was ok but the service was really attentive and friendly. Her service overcame any negatives we might have had. Overall, a fair experience.

Almost everything was great for my dinner out with a good friend. However, the seating wasn't ideal. We enjoyed dining upstairs, but the seats themselves were terribly uncomfortable. They were very low to the floor. I'm only 5'4" and I had to cross my feet almost Indian style under the table in order to be in a more comfortable position and not have so much pressure on my knees. I can't imagine how anyone tall would be comfortable in these seats. They need to be replaced.

We went to have dinner prior to a movie and had fries as an appetizer and sushi as our main course. The fries were the best part of our meal. The sushi was beyond sub-par and not worth the $10-15 cost per roll. I recommend for drinks and appetizers, but skip the sushi.

Everything was excellent except our server. She was very nice and had great recommendations but we hardly saw her. She took forever to get our drinks out (alcohol) and never even asked if we needed a refill on our water. She was incredibly nice and seemed professional but very unconcerned with waiting on us. She disappeared to the back for the most part. I could understand if she was waiting on other people but she just wasn't around period. Beyond that this place is excellent.
