I went here for a birthday lunch and the restaurant was made aware of that when the reservation was made. No mention of the special occasion was made by the staff. It was cold in the restaurant and the reply by staff was that we were too close to the windows and we were welcome to move. Not a welcoming location. The ambience does not match the price of the food. I will avoid this location in the future

Service was just terrible --- see my comments to the restaurant. Unfortunately, this has been the same mediocre experience three times in the six months --- I need to learn its not going to get better ... take my money elsewhere .

The views at Scott's are good, and so is the interior of the restaurant. When we have come in the past, the food has been pretty good. This time it was not. My sea bass was mushy. The green beans were nearly raw, and the rice was also undercooked. It was disappointing to pay so much for a meal that was not good.

I loved Scott’s. The food was great . The service was great also. If I was to complain or have a problem with anything it would be the noise
level of the Restaruant . It was extremely loud. It was a Saturday so I’m sure that’s probably the loudest nite to go to Scott’s. The food and service was still great .

We have been twice now and it has not disappointed yet. We love the menu, atmosphere and service ice. Our last visit, on 2/16, we enjoyed a wonderful waitress who had the perfect balance of checking on on us and allowing us to enjoy our conversation with each other. she was also very knowledgeable of the menu and helped make the best selections.
We look forward to our next, meal at Scotts on the River.

It was Valentines Day. I had us set up for an early dinner @5:30pm. We’ve been dining at Scott’s both in the Arden Area and on the River. Quite frankly we’d never had a bad experience there until...this one.
I should have known not to go out for dinner on Valentine’s. My filet was extra petite and no I didn’t ask fo it that way and more to the point it was just a bad cut of meat. It had a gamey liver-type of taste. My green beans were nasty and so was the rice pilaf.
After My wife tasted my fillet we called our server over and had it removed off of our tab the two lobster tails were the highlight of my meal along with the bread

We had a wonderful meal at Scott's. Everything was just perfect. Service was great, our server was very attentive. My daughter got a free dessert as we were there to celebrate her birthday plus it's Valentine's day.

The food was great, however it would have been nice not to have the men rolling tables through the restaurant (4 times) during dinner, and know about the remodeling before hand!

This is the third time I've gone to this place for a special occasion, and the third time my special requests were not only not fulfilled but not even acknowledged. Upon my arrival, no acknowledgment of the special occasion, reminding hostess and wait staff, no acknowledgment.

The food is good and wait staff are prompt, but the place is filled with LOUD drinkers and the ambiance is more like a bar than an quality restaurant.

Too bad, really, because I was hoping something had changed. When I spend 200 dollars on a meal for a special occasion, I expect to feel like I'm in a place that actually represents the cost. This place does not, in my opinion, it's just trendy.

I love the location on the river. Parking could be better, be prepared to walk quite a distance or wait for the shuttle. A little pricey so special occasions for dinner only. But breakfast is fairly reasonable and they have the best bacon!

I love this Riverfront location! The Restaurant and Bar have a great look and feel! But, the food is mediocre and the servers, while pleasant are poorly trained.

We ordered the Filet and Shrimp, Fettuccine and the Skirt Steak with Bleu Cheese Potatoes. When the plates arrived they appeared to be under a heat lamp because all around the rim the slosh from the sauce was caked onto the rim of the plate. The pasta tasted microwaved and the potatoes were just overwhelming with the Bleu.

The location is perfect for special occasions, but after several attempts I just don't think we will go back.

We had a 6.30 reservation, but didn’t get seated until 7.15. What’s the use of making a reservation then.
Service was good, food was ok.

server Miguel was great; friendly, knowledgeable, attentive
food; crab cake appetizer was disappointing, overpowered by spicy sauce on top, maybe because the flavors of the cake weren't that good
ahi 2 ways was pretty good, seared ahi & dressing/sauce were excellent, "soy marinated" ahi was pretty plain. A little more crunch on the plate would've been nice.
after dinner coffee - the regular coffee was pretty weak. The capuccino was pretty good, but there was probably 3 oz of coffee in the cup

Food was delicious. I only went because I had a gift card. I wouldn't normally pay $80 for a dinner for 2, but the food was very delicious. I would recommend. I don't like seafood so we had the chicken. Salad was amazing as well.
