Worst dining experience ever. I have been to Scott's on many occasions, mostly brunch and lunch and usually quite good which is why I chose Scott's for dinner. This was for Mother's Day and it was horrible. At 6:30, all filet mignon wad sold out. Had to wait for an hour before I asked where our order was. Then the manager came and said backlog in kitchen even though we watched tables around us (who arrived after us) being served. Then they brought out cold, under-cooked food. Obviously, can't handle large dinner crowds.
We had a great time. Tje food was good as always. Only downside was that the AC didn't seem to be working very well and we waited a 1/2 hr for our chocolate indulgence cake. However they did comp dessert so that wasn't a big deal.
It was Mothers Day and we were looking forward to a great meal. We have been eating at Scott's for 20 years and always have enjoyed the food. BUT, today the menu was a very limited brunch menu.. Not even their famous pea salad. We made reservations 2 weeks in advance and didn't get anything we had looked forward to.
Our server Nicholas was great. We did have a problem with the table we were seated at. We ask for a different table and were told by the hostess she would ask. She never came back. The tables were not level and the chairs were too low. We had to ask a few times to move. One comment made to us was people have reservations, our response was we did too. This part was very frustrating.
I will not be going back for Mother's Day again.
On a positive note, Nicholas was awesome. He was the bright spot in the table mess.
This was my Mother’s Day brunch ...last year we came and there was a buffet there was no mention that there was not a buffet for Mother’s Day we were extremely disappointed what a let down our server Jen was fabulous thank goodness for her or Our Mother’s Day brunch would’ve been a real bummer of a Mother’s Day brunch 😢please don’t advertise a Mother’s Day brunch unless you’re more specific about your menu ...thank you!
We were celebrating that our friend was able to successfully buy a new house in the Shoreline area, so we looked for a good place to eat up north. The food was terrific- beautifully seared scallops and halibut, each with enough sides that we didn’t need a side salad. It was wonderful! We will go back!
The “old” patio area is really looking “old.” Maybe some plants would help? Our server was nice enough and certainly checked back regularly but nothing especially responsive or happy. Heard “No, we don’t do that” a few times which was disappointing as in the past, servers at Scott’s will check with a manager first. No bread brought out or even offered (maybe that is reserved for dinner guests only?)
Scott's was just not up to its usual quality in any category. We have been coming here for years. We buy gift certificates for others. We celebrate special occasions and have seldom been disappointed, but this time was "off" in every way.
Weekend brunch was delicious. The vanilla custard French toast was incredible.
First time at this restaurant, was referred by a friend. We had a delicious meal. The service was wonderful. Will definitely return.
We enjoyed a nice evening celebrating our anniversary. Good food!
All good! Our server was efficient and friendly. My rigatoni was terrific as usual.
I enjoyed going to Scott's since the early 90's where I had my first taste of French onion soup.
So good! I have noticed that there seems to have small change to the recipe...???
Over all I enjoy going to Scott's.
We have been dining here for many years for many occasions. It is a favorite go to for our anniversary, 26th this year. The food has always been consistently good, however for the first time I was dissappinted in the pea salad. It is my favorite and no one makes it as good. This time it was lacking in flavor and the dressing was very thin and a bit watery. As stated, I was dissappinted but will definitley return.
Scott's is always a great place to grab lunch. Parking can be a challenge, but not a huge deal.
We had a group of 8 and everyone had a great time. Waitress seemed a little stressed out, could smile more... etc.
Great service, very friendly and attentive server.
Our food took FOREVER to come out, our food was over cooked and I'm some cases burnt, and it wasn't made to the specifications we requested. We come here often so it was very disappointing. The waiter seemed like he had better things to do and hardly attended to our table which is why we could not request even to send back the burnt food. This is absolutely not a,typical experience here so I can only assume between the waiter and the kitchen staff there was a problem that night.
Food was well over cooked
We came to Scott’s from a recommendation from a family friend. Made reservations, we were greeted with welcome and was happy we got led to our table fairly quickly. But I requested not to be seated in a booth, because my mom was disabled and was not able to just sit and scoot over but was shown to one. Got fixed right away, got our drinks in orderly fashion, but unfortunately, I think we’re forgotten by our waitress. We waited and waited while people around got served, got their salads and their meal. Had to go to the front desk to ask, I heard they are usually busy and I understood that, but notice on my watch it has been al least 30 mins before we saw our waitress again. She apologized and we gave her our order. Took another maybe 30 mins or so to get our meal because they were busy. Yes, I think I said that again, I was really hoping by the time we got our order my steak would be perfect (as I was told, they have great steaks) to my disappointment, it was really dry and not just mine but also the rest of us who ordered their steak. I finally decided I had enough, I kept quiet and and asked for our check. Did I say they were very busy? Waited, and waited my guests decided to wait in the car while I tried pay. Didn’t see our waitress and I finally brought it up to the front to pay. Overall after all that, I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Need to hire more wait staff.
Our waiter was very personable and helpful. Great energy. I wish I could remember his name, but we were there at noon, sitting in back of the restaurant, adjacent to the kitchen.
Scott’s is not what it used to be. The last few times have been disappointing
We were at Scott's for Easter dinner. Our server was so gracious, even though she'd been on shift since 9AM. Not her fault but we seated next to a large party & our food took awhile. My peppercorn salmon was dried out out & the other food on my plate, lukewarm. I would have sent it back if I wasn't so hungry. Overall we usually like Scott's, but to be honest the food isn't as good as it once was.
I liked my ability to make an online reservation. It was quickly confirmed and followed up on via your telephone call. Our hostess and waitperson were friendly and met all of our needs. The food was wonderful especially since I was with two picky eaters. I have visited your restaurant many of times and for many different occasions and have never been disappointed.
The brunch menu included some very good creative options. The French toast was the best I ever had. The scamples were very good as well. The crab and avocado Benedict was disppointing, very little crab and the eggs were under cooked.
We've gone to Scott's for lunch quite often but had never gone for Easter brunch. We had reservations for the dining room but saw that the bar area was empty so chose to sit there. It's more comfortable and less noisy. The food was delicious! I had crab and avocado Benedict that was super good! The eggs were done just right, lots of runny yolk! The potatoes on the side had great seasonings. We always have lavender cosmos when we go, can't beat them!! The wait staff was very attentive and quick. Our drinks came quickly as did our food and the waiter filled our water when it was just half empty. It was a great dining experience!
We arrived earlier than anticipated but they were able to accommodate us right away. Dillon, our server was very friendly and responsive to our every need. Food was very good. Will go back very soon.
We had dinner at lunch on Saturday to celebrate Easter. We ordered steak for our dinner as we have eaten it there before. The dinner was delicious, the steak cooked perfictly and the asparagas cooked just right. A suprise was the extremely yummy potatoes au gratin that came with the cowboy's ribeye. Our waiter was skilled and charming. We thought it was a perfict Easter dinner.
Old high school friend was visiting Seattle on business. He had limited free time. We live on Whidbey Island , so we decided Scott's would be the place to meet. The food and service impressed our guests (enough that they're hoping to return with family). The staff didn't rush us, allowing us to enjoy our one evening together. Scott's Bar and Grill is our go-to restaurant.
Service was good. I had the almond crusted scallops, The scallops were tasteless.
Friend and I come here monthly. Not sure why, we seem to get seated away from everyone, NW corner. Is probably because we do ask for quiet section and/or plenty of light. Or because it’s kind of early and there’s only certain servers stationed at a specific area. We make it work and do not ask for a different table. Just curious. Some of your servers could be more attentive and friendlier.
Also my friend order coffee with desert. Always, coffee is really strong and sometimes arrive tad cold.
Overall, we will continue to dine monthly.
This was one of the poorest experiences ever, in that I had a reservation, and waited almost 30 minutes for a table, though there were maybe 10 tables occupied and at least 20 open. What ever was going on was unacceptable, and the hostess should have been forthright with the situation other than saying "we will let you know." When I am going to spend $200 or so on dinner, I expect better and did not get it this evening. Probably our last visit there.
I was not pleased with the service or quality of food this time. We have eaten at Scott's numerous times so I am not sure why it was off today. Would I recommend to someone ele, I am not sure.
Scotts is always at the top of our list for places to eat - the menu is varied & extensive but the best thing, the waitstaff is ALWAYS accommodating to the customer. Everything we ask for is always met with a resounding "yes, we can do that!" I don't know of any other restaurant in the area where service and customer requests are accepted with a more positive attitude. By all accounts the servers, the management and the staff all like their jobs and it shows. That says a lot to the customer. Thank you, Scotts for showing us how a great restaurant should operate and putting the customer first!
Service by Julie excellent; not too intrusive nor too unattentive. Ambience calls for fireplaces that work , candles, or better overhead lighting in raised dining area.
We have never been disappointed in the delicious food, superior wait staff and prompt service.
It is always a treat to visit Scott's Bar & Grill.
nice size portion of coho salmon, perfectly cooked. Fish & chips were average; good size portion.
Scott’s is definitely my “go to” pick for good food and great service. However, my most recent visit was a bit disappointing. Service was much slower than usual, and the normal welcoming feel wasn’t there either. None of the staff seemed happy that day. I noticed that my favorite Dijon chicken was a much smaller portion than in the past, and the seasonable veggies seemed to be from a bag. I’m hoping that this was a “one-off” occurrence, and will go back at a different time of the day, to see if I simply came during a shift change or bad time of the day....
Since it was St. Patrick's Day, I made a reservation. We arrived on time for our 7 pm reservation, but it took them 15 minutes to get us seated. After we had been seated. It took another 15 minutes or more to get any drinks or service. It seemed even after we had been waited on that our order was not important to the.
The food was decent. My really liked her cheese burger. My pasta was ok, but not great.
We have dined at Scott's before and really liked it. This time it was not really all that good. It was rather Ho Hum. This was the first date night my wife and I had in a long time and I wanted
it to be special. However, the dinner was not all that special. The rest of the evening was but not this.
