    This was a tough experience. We had a reservation but were sat down late. Our table wasn’t addressed by a staff member for over 20 minutes and an hour in we still didn’t have our food. Food was average, $ did not match the quality and the service was poor. The location is lovely—sure wish the experience had matched it.

    Good ambiance and great service. The food was tasty, but not worth the price. Drinks were watered down. Overall, though, we had a good experience.

    Food was good and the outdoor ambiance was lovely, but the start to our evening found the 4 doors by the elevator locked at 6:15. A customer sitting by the door opened it for us to enter to use the elevator. We reported to the hostess and she reported to the manager. However when we left at about 9:15 after a relaxing time on the patio, the four doors were again locked. There have to be fire regulations keeping doors unlocked for handicapped folks using the elevator. We again reported to a young man as we left and he unlocked the doors immediately.

    Service was very poor. Not crowded but server was slow on drinks, bread and soup wasn’t brought out until reminded after we have received our meals. We dined in the patio but was told we can move to the inside if not happy. We asked to move inside but then was told kitchen will close at 3:00pm so better if we stay outside and get our order in. My reservation was for 2:45pm so why would you tell us this poor excuse and what difference would moving to the inside make? Why tell us we can move inside in the first place? Food was sub par for Scott’s bit this has been trending down for the past year. Miss the old days when your food and service was good.

    I have been coming here for years and I was disappointed with my shrimp and grits. I feel over the years the food is not as good as it once was . I travel all over and have had shrimp and grits in various places in the south . My shrimp and grits was more of a soup than shrimp and grits . Not sure why it wasn’t executed properly . Maybe this was gumbo with egg on top

    Great dinner! Before we ate we ordered margaritas. They did not taste the way we thought they should and asked for something else. They did it with no hesitation. After dinner the waiter told us the drinks were free. And because we were celebrating my girlfriend's birthday, they gave us a free desert! Wonderful evening!

    Waited an hour for food after placing the order. Everyone in the restaurant was unhappy and experiencing incredibly long waits and inattentive service. When I addressed the manager on duty he quickly placed blame on his team members and also offered nothing to make up for or acknowledge our bad experience.

    Lunch for two individuals totaled over $100.00. I think it would be a good business move to offer free valet parking or at least offer at a lower cost than $12.00.

    for the most part our food was great. I am still trying to get the kids menu to work for us. This time the chicken tenders were chewy and tough. Previously the corn dogs were still frozen in the middle. maybe we will order him something from the main menu and just take the other half home. Our waiter was wonderful and very attentive. Thanks I had a wonderful birthday again at Scotts.

    We were celebrating a birthday. Our food was simply not up to par. Orders of fish and chips had soggy fish and we had to send it back. When we finally got our drinks after we waited 15 minutes, the server (new and in training) poured/spilled drinks all over our table. The place was nearly empty and we had to wait longer for everything. An order of Baja tacos came on a plate so hot, I was warned by the server not to touch it. It was just not good. We won’t be going back, which unfortunate since we have had good experiences at the Scott’s in Sacramento Loman’s plaza in the past

    This was our first time here, took my husband for a birthday dinner. Really impressed when first we walked, had reservations so they sat us quickly. The service was great, food was fabulous, they gave my husband a dessert free for his special day and went home with a free bottle of sparkling wine! Great experience, we will definitely be back!!

    Overall, Scott's Seafood on the River could be more polished in terms of service and the staff should not be on the phone and eating a snack in front of the customers. The valet service was prompt , courteous and friendly but they are subjected to absolute chaos when it comes to the traffic in front of the hotel. Also, it's doesn't make sense that a customer has to find a bartender in order to pay for their valet ticket. I noticed that Monday - Thursday is relatively calm at the restaurant but Friday - Sunday is very unorganized. I've been a loyal customer at Scott's Seafood on the River for many years, but the quality and class has diminished.

    We have enjoyed Scott's Seafood on the River over many years. It has been our go-to place for special occasions. It did not disappoint. The food was outstanding. The service was excellent. The only drawback was the noise - it was extremely hard to hear the waitstaff or our guests. Overall, it was still a wonderful evening.

    Had reservations for outside patio. Never received napkins or silverware. Eventually just took them from another empty table. After 15 minutes of no waiter, we flagged one down who took our drink order. Another 15 minutes for the drinks to come and still no waiter to take our order. Finally drink taker also took our order. Food was average. Waiter took dessert order and brought wrong dessert. Finally just got the bill and left. Disappointing service.
