 (San Francisco)·Dined 5 days ago

Well, it was December 12... the height of holiday gatherings at lunch time. I requested a quiet table for a business lunch and was seated next to a table of 12+ people celebrating the season. It was really crowded so couldn't change table locations. We should have moved the bar. Crazy loud and could hardly hear each other.

They have a large parking lot, but finding an open spot was challenging. A neighborhood restaurant probably gets mostly single occupant cars arriving. It made me wish for valet parking as an option around this time of the year.

The server was great. The food was okay. I ordered one of their specials, roasted salmon. Really boring with hardly any seasoning. My bad choice as I was thinking of their great grilled salmon during the summer. Roasted was meh. Brussels sprouts on the side - which is a big yuck for me. Menu said I'd get asparagus. On business lunch, it's embarrassing to shove half your plate of food to the side.

My guest ordered the chicken club and seemed to really enjoy.

Met an old friend for dinner while in the Seattle area where he lives. Picked Scott's out of the OpenTable list as the location was convenient for all parties. Our server was a hoot and that made the visit tolerable. The food itself was nothing special. Entrees chosen were the Scott's house burger, fish tacos and the specialty meat loaf. The first two were simply OK. Expected better based on the reviews I read. The meat loaf was very dry--yet swimming in a grayish sauce. More problems--my friend couldn't get a second round of the beer he wanted, because they had run out; and the dessert my wife wanted was also not available, though our cheerful and intrepid server got the kitchen to whip up something that was supposed to be similar. But it wasn't, really. Can't recommend this place.

Scott's never disappoints. The food is always good. Seating for the dining room is always a little slow even at 6 PM. The bread pudding is always great.

We were a table of 4 (one was a 2 year old) and it took almost 2 hours for our dinner. We waited almost 15 mins to have our order taken, the waiter came back only once, I didn’t get a water refill, our dessert (the tiny sundaes) took almost 25 mins to get and the prime rib couldn’t even be cut with a steak knife-it was so tough! I’ve been to Scott’s many times and this was the worst experience I’ve had there

We made reservations for Thanksgiving at Scott’s . We were excited because we have enjoying Scott’s for many years. Unfortunately, the Thanksgiving meal was far from our normal experience. The white meat turkey was good, the dark meat was hard to identify where or what it came from, the stuffing tasted similar to Stove-top-stuffing, and the potatoes were average. Finally, the gravy was nearly nonexistent, we had to order extra because we couldn’t tell if it was present. Given the relatively small portions, lack of seconds and the average quality food it is hard to justify the $32 a plate. We will not be back next year. On the positive side, Service was good and quick. We wish the experience had been otherwise. Finally, in most Thanksgiving meals in local restaurants the meal offers seconds or more, but that was not the case at Scott’s. We rarely provide reviews when a restaurant didn’t do well, because everyone has bad days, but for Thanksgiving we had higher expectations. This was not the good value that we have come to expect from Scott’s.

I have gone to Scott's for years with friends. It is consistently top drawer for food, service, and ambience. It is a wonderful place to go for Thanksgiving offering a traditional turkey dinner and a great selection of other meals as well. Scott's offers a positive experience in every way every time.

Thanksgiving Dinner. The “gravy” served is a pan sauce, not a traditional gravy. Tasty, but hubby was disappointed and there was similar grumpy rumbling from an adjacent table. Plenty of light & dark meat, plain but good stuffing, a puddle of mashed (?) potatoes, green beans and whole cranberry sauce. My house salad was extra but our slices of pumpkin pie with a small dot of whipped cream were included in the price. Drinks from tea & coffee to wine & cocktails are extra.

He performed very well under these circumstances. He was very attentive. Food was great!

Meditranian Pesto Fettuccini was very tasty, ordered garlic prawns with it. Ample sized portions. Spicy Bean w/vegetable soup was good, although a bit on the salty side. Caesar salad was good, although a bit overdressed.

We are three women who have been friends for 30 years and Scott's has always been our place to get together for years. The atmosphere is nice, food is excellent but most of all, we always appreciate the warm and friendly staff at Scott's. This last time, 11/10/17, our waiter was especially fun and gracious. He was a real gem. We were amazed that we occupied our table for 5 hours (we are chatty, I guess) and no one seem to object to our lengthy stay. Scott's will remain our favorite restaurant forever, I'm sure.

We eat with you about every two weeks and have for over 10 years so we are frequent diners. Here are areas where you could improve: when we order bacon on a bacon cheeseburger, 30- 40% the time you leave the bacon out. When we order a hamburger rare or medium rear 50 % of the time it comes out medium or well done. When we order a gluten-free bun, 20% of the time we get a regular bun. Since we usually eat in a party of 10, someone frequently needs to wait for an order to be corrected which is unfortunate.

On the plus side, your waitstaff is very pleasant, splitting orders is graciously done, you have a great steak salad, delicious iced tea, nice cold Mac and Jack and we always feel welcomed!

Food, especially steaks, came luke warm. Service was quite slow. Had to obtain steak knives on own. Hot water was not hot or even warm for tea or hot water. Waiter pleasant, but apparently over stretched. Not a great experience, especially for what was charged for each meal.

Had a nice birthday lunch. My sister had her favorite chicken salad and I enjoyed the blackened rock cod jambalaya. Our service was very good, attentive but not intrusive. I did note on our online reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. It went unnoticed. I was slightly disappointed there wasn't a slice of cake or a cookie, just a little something.

Scotts has been a "go to" favorite of our family for many years.

Been gooing to Scott's for over 25 years. Always love the food and their serves are the best. If I ever had a complaint, it would be that the noise level makes it very difficult to carry on a conversation at times. I wish when they renovated this year, they would have found a way to put some sound baffles around. I'll still keep going though.
