    I enjoyed my birthday dinner outside on their shaded patio with the Sacramento River in the background. Add a nice glass of wine, good food and complimentary desert... It was a memorable evening.

    I really like the view and seafood options! It was still brunch, so unfortunately, it was a lot more limited menu. Service missed a couple of items we ordered - a beer added after we ordered our food and soup which was taken part of the original order which I cancelled once our meal came. It wasn't that busy - so it was a little annoying to have these misses. By 4PM the bar was poppin! So that seemed the place to be. I would still go here bc of the view and venue - makes it feel like a special day out. But man the service is super disappointing - so beware! Oh and $12 valet.

    Great ambience, patio dining overloooking the Sacramento River and yacht club on the other side. Very congenial and attractive bar, too, with one of the best happy hours in town (but get there early - between 3 and 4 is best as it gets crowded). Had Saturday brunch this time. Lovely.

    My wife and I we went out on a date. I ordered there ribeye steak and lobster tail Probably the best lobster tail I’ve ever had it was really good,mashed potatoes really good. my wife got the special which was stuffed halibut and the stuffing was crab meat. We finished with their crème brûlée for dessert that was really good too. The drinks from the bar, I had a Michelada. Which was prepared more like a Bloody Mary, not authentic and the Long Island iced tea in a word. week! but the service was great. We had aa great waitress. attentive, responsive and we appreciated her. I would go again.

    We had a 7pm reservation to sit on the patio for a sunset dinner. The service was exceptional and the cuisine was a true delight. It was my fiancés birthday so they treated him to a complimentary dessert & bottle of champagne! Wow!

    We had a lovely evening. The wedge salad was presented in triangles and was Devine. The Cajun pasta was jut the right amount of kick and cream. Scott’s by the River is a beautiful venue.

    Made reservations for my boyfriend's birthday and they did an amazon job. We ordered the calamari to start.. very garlicky and good.. I ordered the alaskan halibut that came with green beans and pilaf. He had the filet and prawns combo with mashed potatoes and green beans. We split the cobbler for dessert and had great views the entire time.

    I feel badly for the servers and staff having to work in such a poorly run restaurant. From check-in, bar, and table seating, the service was out of this world bad and a clear sign of incompetent and unsupportive management team. No sense of urgency, combative customer/staff interactions, and lack of cleanliness in the front of house. I can only imagine what the kitchen is like!

    Overall our meal was very good. The food and service were excellent. However, we needed a table for 6 and they only allow reservations for tables of 4 on OpenTable. We sent them a note letting them know we needed 6 and when we arrived they were only prepared for 4. They said they never read the notes until the people get there so they didn’t have a table of 6 for us available at that time. Why bother sending a note of this restaurant ignores them. This was our only issue.

    Lunch outside on a Saturday was such a treat. The food was well presented and delicious. We both had a seafood salad and shared a dessert. Not sure why it took a little longer than expected to be seated because I made a reservation. Maybe they were waiting for my friend to get there?

I wish that I could remember his name so that I could thank him personally in this review. No doubt, this will be our go to place for special occasions. Loved everything about the experience.

    Expensive, poor ambiance. It feels like a cafeteria with a bar in it. Nice looking entrance, but the rest of it doesn't keep up. It is on the river, but not really a view of the river. Perhaps because it is attached to a hotel it it needs to be cafeteria-like, but I was expecting more, especially for the price. Maybe a decent place for pricey drinks "near" the river?

    The food was great, however, service was bad. Not acknowledged by the bartender for quite some time while we waited for our table. We decided to share an appetizer, salad and one entree since it was a super hot day and we were sitting outside. The waitress did not like that we weren’t ordering more and rolled her eyes each time she left the table. Then our bill had an extra drink on it that we did not order and it took a while to get the correct one. I love the food but kindness goes a long way, especially when you work for tips.

    Had a reservation for 4 people for 8:15pm. Was unable to sit outside due to lack of staffing, was offered to wait for a table but hostess said “you could wait for an outside table but we close at 9pm and you’d be rushed.” Probably shouldn’t offer later reservation times if unable to accommodate preference of seating. Everything else was great as usual.
