Excellent - 74th Birthday for my husband. Started with Caesar salad for me, excellent cup of chowder for him. Meal was the seafood tower - assorted hit and cold. Perfect amount of food but you have to like large smoked oysters, huge bbq oysters and cold mussels. We loved the bbq but the cold mussels and large smoked with a sauce was not our cup of tea. Top level, greens, delicious prawns with cocktail sauce and gorgeously spooned smoked oysters . Second layer delicious fried prawns (4), huge bbq oysters, and something else. Bottom layer snow crab legs, calamari, bbq oysters and mussels.

This was a celebration of our wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect....food was delicious, service fantastic, and seating on the deck was great. Our waiter recognized that it was a special occasion for us and really made us feel special. Would definitely return!

I've always had a very pleasant experience (3 times) with our waiter (Art....). Very friendly, pleasant and accommodating. We had a substitute during his break and she was not as well-rounded. Unfortunately I ordered the house-made sausage and it was overspiced with pepper.
My other experiences for lunch and last years mother's day was excellent.....Great menu too!

My 2nd visit, the first was amazing...but probably predates Yelp. Decided to take my mother in law here for her birthday dinner. The whole experience was outstanding; from our perfect table overlooking the river, the generously poured cocktails, to our amazing & delicious meals and desserts! (Beautiful plating & presentation, but not pretentious.) The icing on the cake was our waiter Ben! My husbands soda was refreshed almost as quickly as he drank the last. Ben was engaging and friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We plan to be back again really soon. Bravo!!

This is our go-to for date nights. As the parents of very young kids, our date nights are pretty infrequent, so when we do go out, we want something amazing. But, we keep coming back here. The food is always delicious, the view is unbeatable, and we don’t have to deal with Downtown chaos.

I wish that you would get a valet validation for eating in the restaurant, but that’s not a big deal, as you don’t have to use valet (we just choose to). It’s is in a hotel after all, which makes sense.

Very nice place!!

We had a nice meal, the salads were delicious, as were the seafood entree’s, the prawn cocktail was a little over cooked as the prawns were a little soft. But otherwise a nice meal. Our server was cordial and checked to make sure everything was OK and even gave us a bottle of champagne to take with us to help celebrate our 43rd Wedding Anniversary.

Second year in a row for Easter brunch, and couldn't have been a nicer experience. This is such a lovely setting and it was so beautiful by the river. The food is one of the best brunches we've ever found in the Sac area--so many options, and everything was cooked and seasoned so well. Will make this an annual tradition, I think!

Sworfish dish was soaked in a super spicy salsa that overtook the flavor; gnocchi dish was small & "bathed" in a sweet brown sugar juice (unusual for an Italian dish.) Not acceptable. Waitress was not attentive & brought a margarita with salt when it was requested without. Waiting time for table was too long (15 mins) when tables were open. Dissapointing overall experience costing more than $100...

Yum! I had the field greens salad and added chicken. It was delicious. My husband ordered the filet mignon with scallops. There were only 2 scallops which didn't seem like a lot but he enjoyed them. The filet was cooked perfectly. Will definitely be back.

We took my husband's mother to Scott's for her 90th birthday, some years ago. This year we took MY mother for HER 90th birthday. She raved about the food, and we all love the elegant but relaxed ambiance. The wait wasn't long, but I almost wish it were a little longer, because we were enjoying a drink while watching the river float by. It's a beautiful restaurant with superb food.

My wife and I celebrated our Birthdays here. Everything was great. Our server(Ben) was awesome and helped make it a special night. I got the filet and prawns and my wife got the lobster tails. Both plates were cooked to perfection. We couldn't have been happier with the meal or the atmosphere and the service was excellent.

Our server was great! We were not impressed with the food. It seems that by the time we arrived the kitchen staff was too tired. No special effort was made to even garnish the food. The food was passable, but monochromatic!
My husband had the eggs benedict which came totally flat and one dimensional.
Although the sauce was good and the eggs nicely runny, only one small piece of bacon was presented on each toast. Perhaps a splash of diced tomatoes, or pepper or a plumper fresher poached egg would've improved the plate.
Mine was the deep fried Prawns with rice. Not one bit of dreaded Parsley was wasted on this most bland presentation.
The taste was heavy and Shrimps fishy!
We would give this location another try, however, reservedly!

Always great seafood-never been disappointed. Parking is an issue-valet is $10-so not terrible. It can get a bit noisy inside as acoustics are not great. Service and food are always excellent here-interesting specials available on the Friday night we went.

I have been eating at Scott's for years, usually at the Scott's in Folsom. Met a friend for lunch at Scott's on the River. Service was good, atmosphere excellent, noise level okay, even though the restaurant was crowded with conference attendees. My friend had the Macadamia Nut Crusted Sea Bass and found it very good. I chose one of the luncheon specials--fish (rockfish) and chips . I was disappointed with the fish. The fish was thin and the batter thick and doughy and tasteless. First time in 25+ years I have been disappointed in a Scott's special. I usually don't bother with reviews; if I don't like a place, I don't return. In this case, I want to give constructive feedback to one of my favorite restaurants.

My second trip to Scott's and again I was not disappointed. Four of us this time on a Friday night. Got window seating as requested. The first time we came during the week, for a romantic dinner and it was quiet and romantic. Not so this time, more customers and it was pretty loud. Not so bad that we had to yell, but close to it. Food was good as expected, and service was great.

The bad part of dining at Scott’s Seafood on the River was finding parking. Scott’s is in the Westin Hotel and there was no Valet available, so we had to self park about 3/4 of a mile away. Although we had a 5:00 reservation we had to wait 10 minutes while they seated two sets of walk-ins in front of us.
Our waitress greeted us promptly, but rushed through the specials because she had a table of 8, three tables of 4 and our table of two.
When she could break away from her other tables, our waitress provided great service. Our Grey Goose Martinis on the rocks with three olives and our Caesar Salads were wonderful. My Wife’s Ahi Two Ways was creative and met her every expectations. My Petrolie Sole was one of the best I have have since leaving England or Ireland. The Bernaise has a lovely touch of lemon which complimented the sole. The vegetables were excellent.
The Creme Brûlée was good but cold.
