We had brunch here on Saturday, read great reviews regarding their bottomless mimosas and tasty food. When we arrived it was hectic and very loud so we opted to sit outside in the patio area. The hostess said it would be about 60 degrees, I'm from Miami FL so I was freezing with my coat on. Took about 13 min for a server to approach once she did she was pleasant she suggested trying the poinsettia mimosas and the regular both were good and had a fair amount of champagne. I had the crab cake benidict, it was ok. My boyfriend got the chicken and waffles and enjoyed it.
New Year's Day Pajama Brunch! Staff was super energetic and upbeat. Their regular brunch menu was being offered and our party of five had a variety of items which were all good. Serving sizes were generous. The dining room was full and most parties had reservations. It was a nice brunch on New Year's Day.
The food was wonderful! Perfect for gluten free a celiac needs. Music wasn't really the vibe.
Everything was just blah. My girlfriend ordered the potato nachos and the potatoes were like thin chips. The whole thing left something to be desired.
I ordered the chicken and waffles and was equally unimpressed. Just overall blah blah blah.
Both the Crab Rueben and the Portobello Panini were tasty but the service was spotty at best. Our waitress forgot to tell us the fruit bar was included with our meals, was difficult to flag down for drink refills and disappeared when it was time to pay the bill. This neighborhood place is cute enough but bring a big dose of patience.
Scion never ceases to disappoint me or my guests that I invite to dinner. I've truly enjoyed the opportunity to invite friends to try the amazing selection of food offered at the restaurant.
The noise level is very high, and unfortunately on the day we visited, there was a group of VERY LOUD men that kept yelling, laughing to the top of their lungs, clapping, and basically indulging in loud and vulgar behavior.
It did not seem to bother the staff or the management.
I would not recommend this place
Went for my birthday with family and had excellent service. Tim was very attentive, charismatic, and friendly. The food was fantastic and the drinks were delicious. The prices for bottomless were very reasonable.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Scion tonight. Our host/waiter Gary was super nice and attentive. We didn’t have beer but they had a great selection. All our meals were very good as were the desserts. The dining room was just ok but everything else made up for it.
Disappointing....we went to Scion, once in Silver Spring (which was good), and then to the D.C. location.
Pros - the waitress was pleasant.
Cons - We went for their Happy Hour burger special (D.C. restaurant), and for a place that boasts a large beer lists, the waitress went through a string of beers that weren't available. This is the second time this has happened at Scion. A gentleman who came in shortly after we did was also shocked to ask about the beer list and then given a list of all the items that WEREN'T available. (Not a ringing endorsement, coupled with the fact that the place was nearly empty - and it was 5:30).
When we were ordering dessert, they were also out of 2 of the 5 items. This is a restaurant that is trying to lure people, and a large portion of their incentives are out.
For all this, the bill still was higher than expected. We won't be back.
